Merry Christmas and Hibernation

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is enjoying the festive season with their family and friends.  We put the the Christmas tree and decorations last week so it feels like Christmas now.

Fan Theories

Fan theories are theories made by fans (hence the name) about novels, TV shows or films that explain certain elements, solve plot holes or are more enjoyable that the official explanation. None of these theories are true but they are considered to be Headcannon by many fans and they’re a lot of fun to think about.

Here are my top ten fan theories.

Review: Age of Ultron

You might have noticed that we’re in the middle of a Superhero craze. Marvel started the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) in which some of their biggest heroes such as Iron Man and Captain America are brought to life on the screen. DC created Man of Steel and are following that with Batman vs Superman before moving on to the rest of the Justice League. I’m a massive superhero fan and when the second Avenger’s film Age of Ultron was released I was among the first in line to buy my ticket. At the time I enjoyed the film, I had a few problems with it but nothing major. Earlier this month (October) it was released on DVD so I watched it again. Interestingly I didn’t enjoy it as much and it wasn’t because I knew the plot. 

Warning this review contains major spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron. If you haven’t seen the film, watch it first before reading this review.
