Captain Morgans: Original Spiced Gold Review

Hello and welcome to my first Rum review, I have recently discovered a love for all things Rum and Captain Morgans Original Spiced Gold was the first Rum I ever tried so it only seems fair that it be the first Rum that we talk about.

I payed 12 British Pounds for 700 ml of this Rum.

captain-morgan-570x709

Before jumping into the review, a little on Captain Morgan, Captain Henry Morgan was a real pirate, according to the Captain Morgans website he was born in Wales in 1635, was given the title of Captain at the age of 27, he had been knighted in 1673 and died in 1685, of course this is just a few parts of his history but more can be read on the page of the Captain Morgans website.

Although If you want a more in depth look at the captains history I recommend this page on britannica.com

https://www.britannica.com/biography/Henry-Morgan-Welsh-buccaneer

img_20190103_181131

I love the bottle design of Captain Morgans from what I can tell all of the different types come in the same bottle but I specifically like the art work here and the texture of the label, to me the label has an old feel to it almost like a scroll or a piece of parchment, the bottle design is also quite creative,  the captains ship on the back of the bottle is one of my favorite details.

img_20190103_181148

The back of the bottle does not have too much information on it but one thing that does stand out is a small segment which reads “Buccaneer Henry Morgan, traveled across the Caribbean and became governor of Jamaica, enjoy the Captain Morgan original spiced gold that shares his spirit“.

img_20190104_194110

Instantly upon pouring some rum into your tumbler you are hit with the heavenly smell of Vanilla, the scent is very sweet giving off vibes of hot vanilla cookies baking in the oven.

The flavor of the rum is also quite sweet and gives off less of a taste than the smell suggests, you can definitely taste the flavor of vanilla more than alcohol but the flavor as a whole is quite weak but still enjoyable.

img_20190104_194801

I personally believe that Captain Morgans Spiced rum is best mixed with a beverage, in this example I used cola and will probably use cola for any future rum reviews, it is nice neat but the cola and the rum go extremely well together so I would definitely say that this is best used as a rum to mix with other drinks but apart from that 12 pounds is a really good price for what can be considered an enjoyable rum when you are on a tighter budget.

Whittards: Luxury White Hot Chocolate Review

304170-luxury-white-hot-chocolate-1

I love Hot Chocolate, its a sugary and heavenly delight that I enjoy treating myself on to on a fairly regular basis. I was gifted a tub of Luxury White Hot Chocolate for Christmas by a very good friend of mine and I think it is only fair that I talk about it.

IMG_20181231_221623

First of all you do not get white chocolate chunks to mix into your hot milk as it is portrayed in the above photograph, you get powder mix which is not a bad thing by any means its just not what is pictured on Whittards website.

As you can see from the above picture I have almost finished my tub.

IMG_20181231_221644

The Ingredients of Whittards Luxury White Hot Chocolate are

Sugar, Cocoa Butter (15%), Skimmed Milk Powder, Whey Powder (Milk), Dextrose, Salt, Flavouring, Emulsifier: E450.

One Serving (3 heaped tea spoons) of Whittards Luxury White Hot Chocolate Includes

91 Calories

3.0 grams of Fat

15.4 grams of Carbohydrates 

0.8 grams of Protein

and

0.23 grams of Salt

This is a really good Hot Chocolate, I’m not often a big fan of White Hot Chocolate in general but I have really enjoyed this blend, the smell is mouth watering and the flavor reminds me of melted Vanilla Ice Cream, I will definitely be buying more of this Hot Chocolate in the future and I might even check out some of Whittards other flavors.

Its a lovely blend of Hot Chocolate and deserves nothing more than a 10/10.

If you would like to buy some of Whittards Luxury White Hot Chocolate you can get some by following this link.

The Polar Express (2004) Review

polar-express-onesheetThe Polar Express is a 2004 animated Christmas movie that stars Tom Hanks and is based on a children’s book from 1985, the film was written and directed by Robert Zemeckis who is known for directing classic films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Back to the Future trilogy, Cast Away and Forrest Gump.

thumb_995_768x432_0_0_crop

On Christmas Eve night a train pulls up outside of a young boys house and the conductor offers him a free full round trip to the North Pole, the boy was chosen especially to take the train ride as he had become skeptical of the existence of Father Christmas, like most people would he at first declines the offer to ride the train with the strange man but quickly changes his mind when the train starts leaving without him and he quickly boards the train before it is too late, on the train are many other children who have also been chosen to take the trip.
the-polar-express-586393lYou could say that there are four main children in the film, our lead child is not named at all through out the movie and the same goes for our only female lead they are both listed as Hero Boy and Hero Girl in the cast the other two male children who get a lot of screen time are Billy a poor boy who lacks trust in other people and a know it all kid who is named Know it all, the reason I believe for the lead male and female characters not being named is so that the viewer can identify better with the characters, children can watch the movie and can see themselves in the role of these children.

The only other character that I would say is worth mentioning is the Train Conductor who is voiced by Tom Hanks, the conductor seems to be a magical being that has planned everything that has happened on the trip, he even knows what lesson each child needs to learn on the journey to the North Pole causing many to believe that the children were all chosen especially by the conductor as a means of teaching them life lessons and to help guide them in the best directions for once the journey is over.

00000004There are a lot of moments in the film that may leave you asking a lot questions one of the most asked is what was up with the hobo on top of the train?

Many have speculated that this strange character who helps the lead male in various unusual ways is Jack Frost due to his endurance to the cold and his various ice and snow related powers and abilities, this makes a lot of sense and I tend to agree that it is the most logical theory for the character.

hot-choclate

The film could be classed as a musical as it does have a few original songs which in my opinion are nothing special however they are charming and suit the film nicely, if I was to pick a favorite it would have to be the simple yet fun hot chocolate song.

MCDPOEX EC001

The Polar Express is a wonderful Christmas film, it has good morales and it doesn’t rely much on Father Christmas as a character which I think is over done in a lot of Christmas films, it will leave you scratching your head after watching it but the the things that are left to speculation make a fun debate and some theories people have come up with for un-answered questions are really interesting, the animation is very good however it mostly shines on smaller details such as the snow and details of the trains architecture than it does the characters but all of the animation is very well done, with a great voice cast and a very creative premise for a Christmas movie the Polar Express is a film that is a must watch around the holiday season.

I hope you enjoyed this holiday review of The Polar Express (2004) if you respect my opinion I will respect yours.

Trading Places (1983) Review

IMG_6811-482x707Trading Places is a Christmas comedy directed by John Landis who directed classics such as an American Werewolf in London, Animal House and the Blues Brothers before this popular flick.

Trading Places Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy ©Paramount PicturesThe film stars Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche as the lead actors in the film who work along side a supporting cast consisting of Denholm Elliot and Jamie Lee Curtis.

09132013_Trading_PlacesA homeless man and a rich stock broker have their lives switched due to cruel one dollar bet set up by two sleezy rich business men Randolph and Mortimer Duke, the two comedy legends Murphy and Aykroyd give of some hilarious performances while the rest of the cast do an excellent job portraying their characters.

TRADING-PLACES-008

I particularly enjoyed Jamie Lee Curtis in her role as Orphelia the prostitute that offers to help aykroyds character seek revenge on the Duke brothers and to get his fortune and dignity back, but the entire cast did a great job none the less.

maxresdefault.jpg

There are a lot of jokes and references in the film that wouldn’t sit well with some viewers including a lot of racial slangs, racist jokes and a scene with a gorilla that would leave some people very unimpressed however if you are not offended by anything like this then I am sure you will love the film.

Its one of my favorite movies to watch around the holidays and I am sure it could become a favorite for some of you guys too.

I hope you enjoyed this holiday review of Trading Places (1983) if you respect my opinion I will respect yours.

Super Smash Bros an ever expanding series

With the latest game being released earlier this month it is finally time to take a look at what I consider to be the most important changes throughout Nintendo’s popular fighting game franchise

A quick explanation of the game series is that all of Nintendo’s biggest franchises come together in a battle for the ages, this is no ordinary fighting game series however because instead of draining health bars the goal is to try and knock your opponent out of the arena by either knocking them off the edge of a map or by dealing enough damage that you can knock them into oblivion with a few hits.

Each character has unique moves and abilities which need to be learned to become a master of using the character, most people eventually stick with a main character they play as so it’s best to try them all to see who suits your fighting style the best.

The games also had various collectibles in the form of trophies, character bios, characters and stages.

Super Smash Bros was released in 1999 for the Nintendo 64 it was directed by Masahiro Sakurai, developed by Hal Laboratories and Published by Nintendo

The first Super Smash Bros game had a fairly small roster with only 8 characters to start with and 12 altogether

Mario, Link, Donkey Kong, Samus, Yoshi, Pikachu, Kirby and Fox are the starters and Luigi, Caption Falcon, Ness and Jiggly Puff are all unlockable.

The game came with 9 battle stages and four modes, the modes being single player, training, break the targets and board the platforms.

Break the targets had players needing to break a certain number of targets within a time limit with each character having a unique level.

During board the platforms players had too jump on 10 floating platforms as quickly as possible with each character having a unique stage.

Follow this link for more information on the game as well as a list of smaller differences compared to other games in the series

https://www.ssbwiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros.

In 2001 we got Super Smash Bros Melee, it was released on the Nintendo GameCube and was one of the main reasons for the consoles success it sold more than 7 million copies, directed by Masahiro Sakurai the game was developed by HAL laboratories and Intelligent Systems and it was published by Nintendo.

The game features 25 playable characters with some characters needing certain tasks completed in order to fight them in a battle to add them to your roster Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Pickachu, Captain Falcon, Ness, Peach, Bowser, Zelda and Ice Climbers are all available from the get go while Jiggly Puff, Luigi, Dr Mario, Pichu, Falco, Marth, Young Link, Ganondorf, Mewtwo, Roy and Mr Game and Watch are all unlock-able throughout the game.

maxresdefault

The game also comes with 29 stages, 18 stages are available from the beginning while the remaining 11 are all unlockable.

Board the platforms was missing from this game however every other mode from the first game was here as well as new modes adventure mode, all star mode, event match, home run contest and multi man melee were added.

Adventure mode was very similar to classic mode as it followed a similar formula and concept however the stages were longer and some of the levels required the player to complete challenges.

All star mode puts the player against an army of humanoid characters in a fight to the death.

Event match was a super fun mission mode where players had to complete missions each with a unique theme and challenge

Multi man melee has the player in a battle with a handful of other enemies that are easy to knock out but become more difficult through out the match, this mode can be extremely challenging at times but is a blast to play.

449646-RRTA

In home run contest players would have to attack a sandbag with a baseball bat trying to deal as much damage as they can within 10 seconds with the idea being to hit the sandbag far across the field.

During Multiplayer some fun changes in the rules made matches both more entertaining and more challenging, these modes are as follows Super Sudden Death, Giant Melee, Tiny Melee, Invisible Melee, Slo-Mo Melee, Single Button Melee, Lightning Melee, Stamina Mode and Tournament Mode.

Follow this link for more information on the game as well as a list of smaller differences compared to other games in the series

https://www.ssbwiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros._Melee

Super Smash Bros Brawl was released in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii and was the third game in the Super Smash Bros franchise the game was again directed by Masahiro Sakarai, it was developed by Hal Laboratories along side, SORA, Game Arts, Monolith Soft, Paon and Intelligent Systems.

Brawl was the first game in the series that supported various controller types, the standard Wii mote, a Wii mote and Nunchuck, a Gamecube controller and the Wii Classic controller were all able to connect up the console when playing the game.

maxresdefault (1)

The game had 39 playable characters, 25 were available from the get go while the remaining 14 needed to be unlocked by completing challenges throughout the game, some characters could be unlocked through the Sub Space Emissary, this was also the first game in the series to add third party characters the the roster.

Mario, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Peach, Link, Zelda, Samus, Fox, Pikachu, Ice Climbers, Diddy Kong, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Zero Suit Samus, Pokemon Trainer, Lucas, Ike, Pit, Wario and Captain Olimar were the starting roster while Ness, Marth, Luigi, Falco, Captain Falcon, Lucario, ROB, Ganondorf, Mr Game and Watch, Sonic the Hedgehog, Solid Snake, Jigglypuff, Toon Link and Wolf were unlockable through the game.

The game also had 41 battle stages and included the ability to build your own stages which you could play with your friends.

Z

Classic Mode, All Star Mode, Event Match, Stadium, Home Run Contest, Target Test, Multi Man Melee, Training Mode and Adventure Mode returned here however Adventure Mode was now called the Sub Space Emissary, the Sub Space Emissary was an epic story mode with CGI cut-scenes and various stages, the mode lasted around 8 hours in length which is the longest mode for any Smash Bros game so far, many fans disliked the Sub Space Emissary but I personally had a really good time with it.

Boss Battle Mode was a new addition to the Stadium mode which has players competing in a boss rush against every boss in the game.

Follow this link for more information on the game as well as a list of smaller differences compared to other games in the series

https://www.ssbwiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros._Brawl

The fourth game in the series was the first to be released on more than one system, it was released on the 3DS and the Wii U in 2014, it was developed by Bandai Namco and SORA, published by Nintendo and directed by Masahiro Sakarai, this was also the first game in the series to introduce amiibo compatability, you could scan you amiibos into the game in order to train them up to fight either against other amiibos or yourself

Due to the game being released on two systems I will be discussing both in this section and using images from both versions of the game.maxresdefault (2)

Both games had the same 58 playable characters not including DLC, 39 were available from the beginning while the other 21 characters needed to be unlocked.

Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Link, Zelda, Shiek, Toon Link, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Fox, Pikachu, Charizard, Lucario, Captain Falcon, Ike, Pit, Wario, Captian Olimar, Sonic the Hedgehog, Princes Rosalina, Greninja, Robin, Palutena, Villager, Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer, Shulk, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Mii Brawler, Mii Sword Fighter and Mii Gunner were the starting characters while Ness, Falco, Wario, Lucina, Dark Pit, Dr Mario, ROB, Ganondorf, Mr Game and Watch, Bowser Jr, Duck Hunt Duo and Jigglypuff are unlockable characters however in Wii U version of the game,

Bowser Jr, Ness, Ganondorf and Jigglypuff and available when you first boot up the game.

Ryu from Street Fighter, Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy Seven, Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, Corrin and Bayonetta all needed to be purchased from the E-shop as they were DLC

3eKkoKY

Each game came with many battle stages to choose from, the 3DS version for the game had 42 stages and 8 stages of DLC while the Wii U version of the game had 55 stages and 9 DLC stages, only 13 battle stages are featured in both versions of the game.

Classic mode, All Star mode, Home-Run Contest, Target Blast, Multi Man Melee, Event mode and Training Return, Event mode is only available in the Wii U version of the game.

StreeSmash

The new modes here are Street Smash where you would use Street Pass to try and knock an opponents token off a board, this was a 3DS exclusive mode.

800px-MasterOrdersThe Wii U version of the game had two brand new modes which were exclusive to the console the first was Master Orders where players would have to complete challenges set by Master Hand in order to win prizes, players would have to use tickets they win throughout other modes in the game to play this mode.

The last new mode in the game was the Trophy box which was a mode which simply displayed the collectibles you unlocked throughout the game.

https://www.ssbwiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros._4

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the 5th game in the the Super Smash Bros series it was released on the Nintendo Switch on December 7th, Similarly to its predecessor it was developed by Bandai Namco and SORA, published by Nintendo and Directed by Masahiro Sakarai, amiibo compatibility returns with the same features as before.

7ns2i4zs6c911Every character ever playable in a smash bros game makes a return here along with 11 new comers leaving the full roster so far at a staggering 74 with 11 more DLC characters on the way making this the biggest Smash Bros roster yet.

kw0jmogqqve11The game comes with 103 stages with seven being brand new to the series, for the first time in the series, all of the stages are available from the beginning and more will be added as DLC in the future.

super-smash-bros-ultimate

Tournament mode, special smash, team battles, classic mode, training mode, multi-man melee (now called mob smash) all return although classic mode is a little different this time around.

Now every character has a unique classic mode which is suited to the character and the boss that they fight at the end tends to suit their unique game worlds.

8dc63c92761f7c144c8aba848bed56089540bfa9r1-1280-720v2_hq

Spirits are new to the series and can be leveled up individually to help enhance their unique features and abilities, you attach spirits to a fighter in order to help them in battle, every spirit has a different ability for example one spirit might grant immunity to lava while another might allow a player to start a match with a rocket belt.

DuBnHbNU0AYRsL8_thumb

There are two ways to obtain spirits one way is by playing through the games adventure mode now called World of Light, this story mode has the player travelling across a vast world in order to save various possessed Nintendo characters from a great threat, the other way is through a mode called spirit board where you can quickly defeat enemies in order to win spirits.

Follow this link for more information on the game as well as a list of smaller differences compared to other games in the series

https://www.ssbwiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros._Ultimate

And that is where we are left for now with the Super Bros Series, there has been rumors that there may not be anymore after Ultimate although I find that hard to believe but whether the rumors are true or not it has been a lot of fun taking a look at this ever expanding game series.

Book Review: Jack Dawkins by Terry Ward

I would like to say a big thank you to Publishers Push and the author of this book Terry Ward for supplying me with a review copy of this book.

This excellent book by author Terry Ward follows the story of Jack Dawkins better known as the Artful Dodger in the Charles Dickens classic novel Oliver Twist

The story continues where Jack’s fate was hinted at in Oliver Twist presumably being sent to an Australian penal colony after being caught stealing a silver snuff box.

In this continuation of the Dodgers story, Jack Dawkins is given one last chance to change his ways narrowly escaping the punishment he was lined up for.

Jack is sent to live with a man called Mr Godden who gives Jack work to do on his farm, his beautiful daughter Lysette catches Jack’s eye and she soon becomes the new focus of the Dodgers life.

Jack Dawkins by Terry Ward is a splendid book that shows the Artful Dodger in a new light, the book shows the past criminal as a caring and brave individual who shows several acts of heroism throughout the story in order to gain the heart of the person he loves.

In another side plot in relation to the Dodgers parents we see an emotional side to Jack that makes you feel for the character and root for his success.

My favourite part of the book was the love that Jack felt for Lysette Godden, I love a good romance so this soon got me hooked on the story, I also really enjoyed the references to Jacks criminal past as well as some character appearances from the Charles Dickens book Oliver Twist.

Jack Dawkins by Terry Ward may be one of the best books I have read in a long time, it is an excellent take on the Artful Dodger that gives the character more humanity and in my opinion makes him more likeable, the author was very brave to write a story based on such a timeless character but he did a wonderful job and I will be look out for Terry Wards books in the future.

5 STAR REVIEWS FOR JACK DAWKINS’!!
Jack Dawkins, AKA as the Artful Dodger, wants to set the record straight about what happened to him after he was obliged to take up lodgings in Newgate Prison. Thanks to the genius of Lionel Bart, we all have a lasting image of him skipping away into the sunset, arm in arm with Fagin. Well, the young jackanapes is here to tell you that the truth is very different.
You don’t have to know your way round archaic words, history or the works of Mr. Dickens, because Jack has very kindly provided a Glossary that you can refer to as he relates in his own inimitable fashion, his encounters with an unusually erudite Bow Street Runner, murderous villains, turnkeys, philanthropists, Innkeepers, Owlers, passing strangers-and Miss Lysette Godden, the first human being he has ever loved. Strangely enough, Jack also reveals that, as he conducts what proves to be a highly dangerous search for his mother and father, he finds his true self.

k;osk;osekr

I thought you might like to take a look at Jack Dawkins’ ghost-writer.
You can see more of both of us on the You Tube video ‘the spirit of the Artful Dodger’,
in which Jack does the decent thing by returning from ‘Mutton Pie and Porter heaven’ to give me a helping hand.

 

Thank you for reading this review of Jack Dawkins by Terry Ward

JACK DAWKINS- being the further adventures of the Artful Dodger’

 by

Terry Ward.

In which the Artful Dodger expresses his opinions on:

Fagin:  He reminded me of one of those ravens you see strutting about, frightening the pigeons.

Poverty:  ‘Youi ought to try living on the streets of London, summer and winter; it’s an education.’

Judges; ‘I can’t stand their type.  They’ll condemn an out of work man for stealing enough to keep his family alive, then go home to a mansion and a two-hour dinner.’

Army generals:  ‘Kill one man and they’ll hang you for it.  Kill a hundred thousand and they’ll put up a statue with your name on it.’

Romance:  Well, there’s kissing and there’s kissing, isn’t there?

Sex: ‘You don’t spend your life living in overcrowded warrens without noticing things you ought not. I’ve seen just about everything from life being made and born, to death having the last laugh, so you’d better think again about what I can and can’t do.’

Down on the farm: ‘Farming is a disgusting business. Horse dung, pig dung and

cow dung keep piling up in pens and all over the yard. It makes

me grateful that the two hundred sheep Mr Godden told me he

owns are doing it in the fields, otherwise we’d be up to our necks

in the stuff in no time.’

Fantastic reviews for

Issue 1 Review: Stranger Things

Welcome to another of my comic book reviews, this time we will be taking a look at the first issue of the comic series Stranger Things which is based on the popular Netflix show.

The comic book takes place during the first season of the netflix show and while following the same plot line the comic book shows the events from the perspective of Will Byers who gets lost in an alternate dimension called the upside down.

I love the lay out and writing style of this comic series, there is less dialogue than would be expected but clever pacing and story telling really makes this one stand out as the journey of Will Byers is told to the reader with more emphasis on the journey compared to other elements of the story.

Stranger Things is the first issue of a 4 part comic book series, it’s a great read for fans of the television series but I feel those who haven’t seen the show won’t enjoy it as much so my advice would be to watch season 1 and then check out the comic book, this was an unexpected find for me which I am pleased to have spotted.

I hope you enjoyed this review of Stranger Things by Dark Horse Comics if you respect my opinion I will respect yours.If you enjoyed this review please consider donating by using the donate button at the top of the page, your donations will help to improve the website by allowing me to afford products to review and to be able to execute any costly updates and changes, any amount in donations are welcome and much appreciated.
