After having to wait a whole two weeks to see this movie due to work commitments, my excitement levels were through the roof as I sat impatiently waiting for the movie to start. I’m not a big fan of most epic action movie franchises (Lord Of The Rings for example), I tend to get bored sitting through long run times, but Pirates Of The Caribbean is certainly different and has always kept me gripped to the edge of my seat throughout each adventure on the high seas.

Final Fantasy has been a video game series I spent my pre-teen years playing. I’ll confess to not having played each and every numbered title in the series, but I’ve played enough to be more than familiar with it’s themes of adventure, courage and bravery in times of peril. Chocobos, Moogles and Cactuars are all well-versed in my vocabulary, as are the names of each summon, from Shiva to Bahamut.
But do you want to know what the best thing about XV is? Well, the introduction screen says it all… Continue reading “Gaming | ‘Final Fantasy XV’ Review”
Before I begin, I suppose I should make it clear that the original Beauty And The Beast (1991) is my all time favourite Disney animated classic. Of course, if you’re already quite the reader of Mandy Jean World, you’ll already know how much I live and breathe everything Disney, and I am not afraid to share all my feelings on the subject. I found out about Disney‘s plans to make a live action remake of Beauty And The Beast well over around a year and a half ago when Emma Watson first announced she was to star.

Remember the phenomenally successful The LEGO Movie back in 2014, where everything was awesome? Well… Even more awesomer bricks have gone into the building of spinoff The LEGO Batman Movie, a film where the famous black-and-yellow dark knight takes centre stage. And, in his words, it’s simply “off the chain“. I will warn you, this review does contain spoilers so I can discuss plot-points in detail, so if you want to remain unknowing of what to expect, go watch the movie and come straight back afterwards!

Rogue One marked the last movie I saw at the cinema in 2016. After a whole year of outstanding cinematic productions, it comes as no surprise that Rogue One was eagerly anticipated. However, while I’d say the majority of viewers had positive responses to this Star Wars midquel, there has been a wide range of just HOW much fans enjoyed it, varying from being praised as “the best Star Wars movie since Episode IV” to “meh… it was alright.” So, just what category did I fit into, you ask?
