    20th Anniversary CF Live - THORPE PARK - 16th April 2023

    Looks like I should be in attendance now and Nic should be tagging along too. I've been attending Lives since May 2005 so it would be silly to skip the 20th anniversary event.

    New Universal Park in Texas

    Interesting, the rumours from the news of a new Texas park from yesterday seemed to suggest it was a Cedar Fair park. I wonder what drove Universal to divert out into a smaller park for children? The entrance logo looks like the Dreamworks logo and most of the properties look like they're from...

    Karls Erlebnis-Dorf + Bibi & Tina World | Germany & USA | Multiple Locations

    A group of us visited the park with K2 a few years back and we had a great time, we were planning on making a small tour to visit a bunch of the others (some were building hotels on site when we looked). Certainly a company to keep an eye on as they seem to have an interesting product on their...

    "Now Showing"

    Avatar: The Way of Water - I liked this, maybe I was too distracted by the quality of the VFX work to ever be bored? There are certainly more scenes just meandering around the locations like a nature documentary, rather than pushing any storylines. Those visuals are just so beautiful though...

    "Now Showing"

    More high praise for Violent Night from me! It's like a wonderfully gory love letter to Christmas films. The Home Alone inspired sequence is easily my favourite scene and the reactions from the audience are why I love going to the cinema. Just a great fun film that knows exactly what it is...

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    @Nicky Borrill I was super tempted to go back to Download next year but honestly the line up isn't doing much for me at the moment, most of the bands I like I'm already booked to see or I've seen in recent years. Shocked Iron Maiden weren't booked for the anniversary year, they feel so ingrained...

    "Now Showing"

    It's been a busy week at the cinema! Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery - Amazing follow up to Knives Out, the opening sequence alone put a smile on my face and it just continued to be a really fun time throughout. Highly recommend seeing it at the cinema but I think you have like 2 days so...

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    Oh wow, this hasn't been posted in for a while! In April I saw Keiino at a bar in Clapham which was awesome, very small venue, very dedicated fans (got a photo with them after!) They were supported by this year's Eurovision artists for Australia and Ireland which was fab and really helped...

    "Now Showing"

    Triangle of Sadness - I saw a lot of hype coming out of LFF so I was quite intrigued by this film. The pacing of it is a little weird and I wasn't that happy with the ending but it's a fun journey with some small key moments that make the whole film worthwhile. I was also glad to watch it with...

    The Woman King - Really enjoyed this film, the cast are phenomenal and while the story isn't very accurate it's engaging and the 2hr+ runtime flew by. The Lost King - This was a nice film, Sally Hawkins is great in the lead role Emily - I found vast amounts of this to be dull and I kept...

    "Now Showing"

    Don't worry Darling - This is ok, I love the art deco World with a sense that something unusual is going on. The third act is ok, it's a decent twist but maybe rushes it a little. Harry Styles isn't a good actor, which in a film full of great actors really stands out. Mrs Harris goes to Paris -...

    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    The location of that skyfly plus the theming is actually incredible. I don't think I'd worry too much about the capacity, most people tend to stand and watch rather than ride these things (although I think Epic Universe building two is an interesting choice). I still haven't visited Tover since...

    "Blue Sky" expansions coming to Walt Disney World (Moana+Zootopia to Animal Kingdom, Coco+Encanto+Disney Villains to Magic Kingdom)

    I've been reading a lot of Disney forums since the D23 presentation. It sounds like most of these ideas have been thrown around for years behind closed doors but it feels like they had so little to announce yesterday that they just threw these out there to draw our attention. Maybe even as to...

    @roomraider Not sure I can recommend 100%, if you do end up seeing it I'd like to know your thoughts. I seen a few films recently. Last weekend I started with RRR a big Bollywood movie that I have seen so much buzz for online. I missed the original UK release so caught it at The Prince Charles...

    Major Expansion Announced for Tokyo DisneySea

    I'm so excited for this expansion, all the attractions look like they're going to be awesome. Most hyped for the new Peter Pan ride, especially after seeing the model of the ride vehicle. However I have read this might be more flight simulator-y rather than cool trackless dark ride - I guess...

    "Now Showing"

    Bullet Train - I had a really good time, it's very stupid but exactly what I wanted to see. Everything about it is ridiculous and for me that worked to its advantage. I was surprised how it kept on going though and one of the plot twists was perfect. Nope - I liked this, some of the scenes are...

    Day Four - Bobbejobbie Most of the group had already been to Bobbejobbie and really didn't care for visiting again as it's just so mediocre. It's not bad it's just not got anything great. But Jordan needed the creds and most of us hadn't been on Fury yet so off we went. There was a couple of...

    Ah, forgot to write about 2 other films I saw at the end of June. Thanks @Scott Lannigan for writing about Elvis and jogging my brain! Elvis - I really liked this, some of the editing felt a little erratic (especially near the start of the film) but I thought Austin Butler did a great job...

    Day Three - Efteling I was super excited to be getting back to Efteling, it's one of my favourite theme parks and it's felt like forever since I last visited. I was a little concerned going in that the crowds were going to ruin the day a little bit but overall things turned out a lot better...

    "Now Showing"

    Thor: Love and Thunder (Thor four) - I love Ragnarok and everything Taika Waititi has made but this felt a little like too much of his comedy quips and not enough of the actual story? It's fun and some of the sequences are shot in a really cool and in a unique way but I wasn't as impressed. I...
