Movie Review: Incredibles 2 *SPOILER FREE*

We've waited 14 years for this film: The Incredibles 2 opens this weekend to about as much anticipation as any Disney/Pixar sequel can have. And while audiences have been waiting over a decade for this one, it seems like Disney has finally decided to go all-in with the Incredible-Family: Disneyland's new "Pixar Pier" opens later this month with the signature featured ride, the "Incredicoaster", occupying a massive footprint on the retooled boardwalk. But enough about that-- let's talk about the movie! And don't worry: this is a spoiler-free zone.

Hogwarts Mystery: Quick Review

I find Hogwarts Mystery to be an entertaining game, for what it is. You run out of energy quickly, unless you are willing to spend money, but honestly I don't mind games like this that I can play once or twice a day and feel like I'm enjoying them without spending hours of my life staring at my phone. That being said, there isn't anything "new" to it: it's pretty much just a retread, in a mildly interactive way.

Important Update from your IGGPPC Staff, May 2018

As European iggles might be aware, a new data and privacy legislation (GDPR - read about it here) is coming into effect at the end of May. This means we need to update our privacy policy, terms and disclaimers. We have been working hard on it, but alas we haven't got it finished and GDPR does have a knock-on effect on other areas of the club. So while we dot the I's and cross the T's the club will be on an impromptu hiatus.

OwlCrate March 2018: Across The Galaxy **Spoilers**

Let's talk about March's OwlCrate: Across the Galaxy. I would like to preface this post with the fact that I cried while opening this box. I know I have said it in the past but this was my favorite OwlCrate by far! Two things you should know about me. I love the color purple and I am obsessed with galaxy print things. This box made all of my purple/galaxy print dreams come true.

Geeks love: Ukulele

The ukulele (uke) is a small fretted instrument that, we’ll admit it, kinda looks like a small guitar. Modern ukes were developed from the Portuguese machada (or machete), which was brought over to Hawaii in the 1800s by settlers. Introduced to North America through the Panama-Pacific Expo in 1915, the uke became a popular addition to jazz bands in the 1920s, and has fans all over the world, particularly in Japan.
