The Art of the Brick - Exhibition


            Last weekend we attempted to go to a massive LEGO convention called Brick 2014 - but with it being ridiculously popular and completely sold out (note: must pre-order tickets well in advance next time!) we settled for the The Art of the Brick instead - a globally touring art exhibition that is currently in it's UK residence in London.

Fury, The Babadook, Interstellar and Nightcrawler - Four Film Feature!


  So I’ve been very busy of late and as a result my regular film reviews has fallen by the wayside a little bit. But of course, there’s always time for watching movies, and the past few weeks have been no exception. So here’s a quick review roundup of a few films that I’ve seen at the pictures recently.

Lego Photography - Behind The Scenes


            Having just hit 2000 followers on Instagram, I though I would celebrate with a little behind the scenes look at my Lego photography process. I’ve had a few people asking me about my photos and so hopefully this will give a little insight into how I work.

Film Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


       Whilst long time fans of the Turtles legacy – be it the animated series of the late 80s/early 90s or the original 1990 live-action movie - will likely balk reflexively at the sheer mention of Michael Bay’s involvement (he produces here rather than directs), the truth of the matter is that this new film version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn’t quite the train-wreck one may have expected it to have been.

Scottish Films Triple Bill

 
            So, I watched three Scottish films the other day.

            Despite being there on my ‘to watch’ list, I hadn’t really planned doing this ahead of time, so it turned out to be an interesting afternoon.

Film Review: The Guest


      Following on from his inventive home invasion horror flick You’re Next, Adam Wingard’s following feature, The Guest, is a slightly more restrained yet surprisingly enjoyable thriller.

Double Dose of Lucy


This week on Double Dose we have a have Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson.

Film Review: Lucy


      There are two main draws for this movie. One: the return to form of Luc Besson, director of such acclaimed films as Leon and The Fifth Element. Two: a leading role for Scarlett Johansson - one full of gunplay, superpowers and general ass-kickery that flirts with being the nearest thing we are going to get to a 'Black Widow' movie.

     Hey everyone! I recently passed the 1000 Followers mark on my Instagram account, so I thought I would give a general update in regards to my LEGO photography journey.
      This article will also serve as to highlight certain people that have featured me and given me props along the way.

Double Dose of Guardians of the Galaxy


This week on Double Dose we have a have Guardians of the Galaxy.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy


 
       One of the most anticipated cinema releases of the summer, Guardians of the Galaxy has a lot riding on it. On one hand, it represents Marvel’s foray into unknown territory – a raucous space opera that is self-aware, irreverent and features some of the their more obscure comic book characters - prior to the film’s release, anyway.

10 Steps To Becoming Insta-famous!


       So it’s been a bit quiet on the writing about LEGO front, since my previous series of articles a few months ago (that starts HERE) which chronicles the times when I first started getting back into LEGO. But I have actually been busy, mostly with taking more photos of LEGO and, especially in the past few weeks, attempting to push thing more on the social media front.

Double Dose of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


This week on Double Dose we have a sequel to the recent Apes reboot, entitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Film Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


      This sequel that is set a decade after the events of the first film (Rise of the Planet of the Apes – itself a reboot/prequel to the franchise), shares much of its predecessor’s simian DNA, yet also strives to do something completely different with its story.

Follow me on Tumblr!

     Hi guys, 

     Sorry for the lack of recent updates - have been busy on other front but will be back with regular updates here soon.

     In the meantime, as my Instagram account has been gaining traction, I've also decided to start up a Tumblr account to display my Lego photos in all their glory. I'll still upload them here and elsewhere too (a big Lego post is heading this way shortly) but in the meantime you can check it out HERE.

     I'll update it with a few photos each day until I catch up with my Instagram and then they will go up on the same day.


     Thanks for your patience and expect more content coming this way soon!

Chromeo, Ghost Stories and Legoland - A Weekend in Review



You know sometimes when you just have that one weekend where everything happens at once and ends up being totally awesome? Well last weekend was one of those.

Here is a rundown of three cool things that I got up to over the course of three days.

Film Review: Edge of Tomorrow


      As high concepts go, Edge of Tomorrow has one that is delightfully simple. In the near future, a recently demoted soldier named Cage (Tom Cruise) finds himself doomed to repeat the same battle over and over again, waking up to restart at the exact same moment every time he is killed. Not only must he learn from his mistakes to survive a bit longer each time, but he must also figure out why this is happening to him and how he can use this new power to his advantage.

Film Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past



       On paper, the combination of the old X-Men (that were in established way back in Bryan Singer’s 2000 film) and the new (the cast of the Matthew Vaughn directed prequel X-Men: First Class) is an enticing prospect. The thought of two different generations of X-Men and, in some cases, renditions of both the older and younger versions of the same character in one movie, is a fanboy’s dream.
