MacPsych at the Movies: Rogue One

So. This was a long time coming. Or at least that's how it felt. A new Star Wars movie, this time another prequel, just one year on the heels of  Star Wars sequel. Confusing, perhaps, for those of us not steeped in the Star Wars universe and its complex history. But Rogue One does a ...

An iPhone without a headphone jack? Sporting the ‘Lobot’ look.

The iPhone rumour mill is in full flow right now, with Apple set to announce a couple of new handsets in the next month. If I'm honest, the update doesn't sound particularly exciting and (if it's all true) it represents a iterative rather than significant update. That said, one of the most interesting - and ...

This has me so excited

The new trailer for Rogue One dropped the other day and I've watched it over and over since. Such a geek, such a Star Wars fan. https://youtu.be/frdj1zb9sMY The trailer is so well cut - it's tantalising and dramatic. Fleeting shots of characters and scenes you just want to know more about. It's already being examined ...

My local Death Star

I love this... Turns out that some of the filming for the new Star Wars movie was done in my local Tube station, Canary Wharf. Gizmodo have the details. The first Rogue One trailer has dropped, and London's own Jubilee Line appears to have played host to one of the movie's most exciting scenes. Commuting can be ...

A spoiler-free Star Wars review

I've seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens twice now. And I'm quite sure I'll see it a few more times before 2016 is out. Not because I'm a slavish Star Wars fanboy (which I am!) but because it's just so good. Seriously. I wanted to write a review of the film without including any spoilers ...

Oh how they’ve changed…

An epic post from Comic Book Resources, outlining all the various teams the X-Men (and spin-offs) have constituted since the 60s. I'm not that old, but I remember from number 3 onwards. Such happy memories of hours spent reading x-books (even when they were so god-awful back in the 90s) and trying to figure out ...

Conflicted Imperial tendencies

I've been dwelling about this since a random thought in the shower this morning. It may lose me a few online friends, but it's worth sharing anyway. If (if only!) I lived-in the Star Wars universe, I think I'd most probably like to work for the Empire. There. I've said it. Now let me explain my ...

Some thoughts on *that* trailer

I won't lie. It was the first thing I did when I woke up yesterday. I'd received an excited tweet from @Nutchild with a link to the new Star Wars trailer. I played it immediately, on my iPhone 6 plus. I played it again while still in bed. And then again. I played it once ...

Star Wars: Bohemian Rhapsody. Because.

This has brightened up my Sunday immeasurably.
