Big Cool Five

Summer is here, the sun has been shining and the World Cup has started. There's is a feeling of optimism in England for the first time in a long time. We have have had lots of fun this month and had lots of days out. Here are my Big Cool Five from June.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

The latest film in Disney's Star Wars Anthology is all about Han Solo. I really enjoyed this film (a lot more that The Last Jedi) but it seems I'm in the minority. Poor box office returns and luke warm reviews have forced Disney to put their planned films in the anthology on hold. You can read my review here.

Fish Shack, Amble

Just up the Northumbrian coast from where I live is Amble and on the harbour is a great little seafood restaurant The Fish Shack. The setting is great, the food is even better. Next time we're in Amble we'll be heading back here. Here is my review of Lunch Menu.

Catch, Ponteland

Another Day, another Seafood restaurant. This time in Ponteland, Catch is something special. The Swordfish with Crayfish Linguine (above) is the best thing I've eaten this month. They do packages where you can stay over and eat at the restaurant and this might be a plan for me and Mrs. Cool in the next few months. You can read my full review here.

Cirque Berserk

I'm not usually a big fan of the circus but Cirque Berserk is a little different. Acrobats, Contortionist, Fire Jugglers were all here but it was the Motorcyclists in the Globe of Death that stole the show for me. You can read Mrs Cool's full review here.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

DINOSAURS! The Jurassic Park franchise rolls on with the latest entry Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Not very imaginative but still lots of fun, if you're a fan of Jurassic Park you'll probably enjoy this. You can read my full review here.

Next month is my Birthmonth and the World Cup Final and we're off on our holidays so lots to look forward to. Check back soon for my July Big Cool Five.

Well, that's all for now.




  1. I've not been to Amble for donkeys and heard such good things about the Fish Shack I think it'll be on my to-visit list this summer!
