Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.

MacGyver is back?

Militant Ginger 0
In the spirit of the never-ending reboot, MacGyver is exploding back onto the small screen. As a child of the eighties, you can pry my classic TV shows from my cold, dead hands. Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, The A-Team and, of course, MacGyver. The first three on that list have already had cinematic or […]

Ghostbusters is… looking good?

Militant Ginger 0
The director of the re-booted Ghostbusters, Paul Feig, has the dubious honor of having his name attached to the worst-received trailer of all time. There’s no doubt that the first trailer for the controversial movie was a shit-show – but it looks like trailer #2 is something else entirely. It’s…. dare I say it? Good. […]

Stand by for the unexpected, with Tickled

Militant Ginger 0
Tickled is a seemingly cute and funny documentary that turns dark fast. Coming from the UK, I cut my teeth on documentaries about weird and wacky people. If there’s one thing we Brits love, it’s going off to visit German nudists or American evengelicals and make ourselves feel better by making fun other of people. […]

Toby Jones to play “one of Doyle’s finest villains” in Sherlock

Militant Ginger 0
Respected British actor Toby Jones – who seems to be relegated to playing weasels and villains – is set to stay true to typecasting as he joins the cast of the hotly-anticipated 4th season of BBC’s Sherlock. “We’re delighted to have Toby Jones on board,” Sherlock showrunner Stephan Moffat accounced recently, “bringing to life one […]

Set Photos: Idris Elba is Roland Deschain

Militant Ginger 1
The first set photos have been released for The Dark Tower. I’m not going to lie – I’m still skeptical of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, the eponymous Gunslinger from Steven King’s iconic Dark Tower series. But if these set photos from South Africa are anything to go by, he certainly looks like a gun-slinging […]

Jack’s Back!

Militant Ginger 1
Fan-favorite Captain Jack Harkness might be back in blue for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Doctor Who fans are going to have to wait until 2017 for a whole new season – but we can get a fix this December, when the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special launches onto our screens. And this year, the […]

It’s REALLY happening! Super Troopers 2 releases poster!

Militant Ginger 0
Broken Lizard have released the first poster for the hotly-anticipated Super Troopers 2. So we all have our areas of expertize at Echoba.se. Mine is James Bond, pissing people off about political issues, and those scallywags from Brozen Lizard. It’s been a while since we reported on the start of filming for this iconic sequel, […]

On Her Majesty’s Secret Hiddleston?

Militant Ginger 3
Could Tom Hiddleston be the next James Bond? There’s still a lot of debate about whether or not Daniel Craig is going to hang up his Walther PPK. Some people quoted him as saying he’d rather ‘slit his wrists’ than play 007 again, while others point out that he still has another film left on […]

The Death of Disney Infinity Announced

Militant Ginger 1
Disney has announced that they’re discontinuing their Disney Infinity video game project. As a parent, there are always a gazillion things your kids demand you spend your hard-earned money on. Pokemon, Yo Kai, and Lego Dimensions figures are examples in our house (although the Lego figures are kind of for mom and dad, as well.) […]

What is the “Point Society”?

Militant Ginger 2
There’s a very sexy new series being teased on social media at the moment – Point Society. But despite all the fascinating teasers, there’s very little we know about the show for certain. Fortunately, I know one of the stars of the enigmatic series; so I asked her if she could shed any light on […]

Wolverine Sequel to be R-Rated in Desperate Chase to Copy Deadpool

Militant Ginger 0
Hollywood execs think the magic R-Rating will save Wolverine. Forget Captain America: Civil War. Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool is the best superhero movie of the year; and it’s stonking great box office returns are proof of that. Even now, Hollywood studio executives are scratching their heads wondering: “Where did they go right?” And, as usual, they’re […]

Militant_Ginger’s “Captain America: Civil War” Review

Militant Ginger 0
I headed off the movies with the lovely Lady_Lorelai the other night, and we finally got to see the movie I’d been salivating about for over a year now: Captain America: Civil War. But did it live up to the hype? This isn’t the first review of Captain America: Civil War on Echoba.se; and knowing us, it probably […]
