I've seen Avengers: Age of Ultron; a slight twang of Marvel fatigue entered my psyche during the middle of the film although I did enjoy it. Perhaps I have overindulged with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like Yorkie raisin and biscuit bars they always leave you wanting more even if you don't want more. Having said that I am still very excited by the slew of upcoming projects, notably Ant Man in August this year and Captain America: Civil War next, featuring Spiderman. How long can Marvel keep going and as my daughter keeps asking me, what happens when phase 3 is done?

Nuncheon is an old Kent word meaning midday meal. Perhaps for nuncheon you could have man-sucker and marm; sounds delish!

Did you know that during the first English Civil War Christmas was cancelled? Well it was, much to the chagrin of the people who revolted. That would indicate that during a revolution there was a revolt, meaning that there were two revolutions. A little bit like getting a double yolk in an egg.

My recent excursion to the Odeon in Maidstone was very uncomfortable for two reasons; first of all the seats are extremely tiring on the back and the knees. Secondly, the main door to the auditorium is at the back and when you sit at the back it is very unnerving having somebody coming in and out all of the time. It is dark, and you don't know who it is. Not that it should be anyone unsavoury but this is Maidstone after all.
The Odeon is a funny place. One of the cinema chains who manage through no particular effort to remove the magic from the movies.Quite a feat what with all the CGI these days.

Here is a link to the latest trailer for Ant Man; enjoy.
