Review: Tolkien

Review: Tolkien

When you think of J. R. R. Tolkien, you most probably think of The Lord of the Rings or even The Hobbit. Your mind wanders to his mystical fantasy lands that he painstakingly crafted after years and years of building his own languages, planning out engrossing characters and perfecting the prose and meaning of his texts. What your […]

Review: Booksmart

Review: Booksmart

Every now and again, a film comes along that will define a generation. The Breakfast Club, Superbad, Mean Girls, This is England and Rebel Without a Cause are all prime examples of this and, I’m happy to say, Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut, Booksmart, is about to join the list. Booksmart‘s premise is an extremely interesting and (at […]

Review: Dangerous Driving

Review: Dangerous Driving

Car crashes are an inevitable part of any driving game. However, few games take the simple phenomenon of an object moving at a high velocity coming to a sudden stop and turn it into a major gameplay element. Yet, for a number of years, humanity’s strange fascination with high octane road accidents was the driving […]

Review: Wild Rose

Review: Wild Rose

The star-studded dream of hitting it big in the music industry is, by all means, a dream many people have. Not me, but that’s because I know my limits. I’ll live, breathe and die my way through a middling career in and out of writing shoddy reviews like this. Regardless of my ambitions, it’s nice […]

Game of Thrones – no more heroes (or villains?)

Game of Thrones – no more heroes (or villains?)

Game of Thrones returns to our screens for its eighth and final series tonight (Monday 15 April). Perhaps the most anticipated show of the decade, the popularity of the show in which virtually every character lies, cheats and commits murder, is a fascinating phenomenon. A global research group of university academics, which includes the University […]

Review: Hellboy

Review: Hellboy

I’ve never actually seen Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy movies. Sacrilege, I know. I’ve also never read the Hellboy comics. So when I say that the 2019 Hellboy is one of the worst comic book movies I’ve ever seen and the worst movie I’ve seen so far this year, I say this from the stance of […]

Review: Shazam

Review: Shazam

You know, I went into Shazam with zero expectations. Like, it’s Shazam for gods sakes. But, after DC managed to completely screw up Superman and Batman, this was really all they had left. If this failed, it was over for them. So, did Shazam succeed? Or was it just another failure in a long line […]

Review: Unicorn Store

Review: Unicorn Store

If you ever wanted to feel you were suffocating in angsty teen subliminal messaging and glitter then I suppose Unicorn Store is the film for you. Brie Larson’s directorial debut landed on Netflix with not so much a splash but a ripple in the water. Attempting to create a milieu of talking points mixed in with heavy performances […]
