Militant Ginger

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.

Wait… Ant-Man’s physics MAKE NO SENSE!   Last summer’s Ant-Man was one of the unexpected delights of the Marvel cinematic universe. Not only did it give us the one founding member The Avengers had been missing (albeit in the form of a different incarnation of the hero) it was also one of the funniest, and […]

One question we get a lot is: “Where does your website’s name come from?” Most Star Wars fans vaguely recognize the reference, but only the elite remember exactly where the name comes from – the base on Hoth that the rebels escaped from in The Empire Strikes Back.

A while ago, we reported on Idris Elba putting his acting career on hold to become a professional kickboxer.
