DVD review – ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

And welcome back to this year’s ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe Film Review Season’!

Today, we take a look at the second movie of a group of superheroes that I barely know about from the comics. It’s time for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’. I saw this movie at the cinema back in May 2017. Will this movie be better second time watching it on DVD compared to first time at the cinema? Continue reading

This is the last two-part story in the Matt Smith TV era of ‘Doctor Who’. In this story, the Doctor, Amy and Rory come across the Gangers and an issue of identity crisis occurs.

Here’s another random ‘Doctor Who’ review from my old Amazon review days on my blog. This was a Big Finish audio story recently re-released on vinyl apparently.

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!Β 

This is where it begins to go downhill for me in the new series of ‘Doctor Who’. This is the first story of Series 6, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor.
