Netflix Special Review: Jeff Garlin – Our Man in Chicago

Netflix Special Review: Jeff Garlin – Our Man in Chicago

I take it that most audiences haven’t heard of Jeff Garlin. At best, they may know him from Larry David’s mesmerising Curb Your Enthusiasm perfection. Perhaps a few know him from Wall-e as the voice of the Captain. Regardless of where, how, or why you know this man, I bet you didn’t know he did stand-up comedy. Jeff Garlin: Our […]

Series Review: The Last Dance

Series Review: The Last Dance

I’ve never watched a game of basketball. That would seem like a stupendous divide between engaging with a documentary on Michael Jordan, arguably the world’s greatest player of the NBA sport of all time, and the Chicago Bulls dynasty he lead in the 1990s. My only knowledge of basketball comes from Jordan’s starring role in […]

TV Review: Charlie Brooker’s Antiviral Wipe

TV Review: Charlie Brooker’s Antiviral Wipe

As we huddle into our respective homes and try and pretend the bad thing isn’t going on outside, we look to the electric panel featured in our living room for distraction after distraction. Netflix won’t do, if you’ve been keeping up to speed with my other writings, you’ll know that Netflix has gone into the […]

Netflix Special Review: Middleditch & Schwartz

Netflix Special Review: Middleditch & Schwartz

The confidence and nerve required to perform in front of others on a stage is something that few possess. A knack for comedy and the ability to perform well is a skill held by even less than that. Eventually you filter down into tremendous talent, the individuals who can bring something specific to the table, […]

Star Wars has had a bit of a rejuvenation recently with Disney’s revival of the franchise, bringing out the sequel trilogy. However, with the delivery of Disney+ in March, citizens of the United Kingdom have been able to stream The Clone Wars – the TV adaptation of the film with the same name. In light […]

Netflix Special Review: Jerry Seinfeld – 23 Hours to Kill

Netflix Special Review: Jerry Seinfeld – 23 Hours to Kill

“If you were me, would you be up here, hacking out another one of these?”. No, Jerry, I don’t think I would be. Not solely because the previous Netflix special Jerry Not Seinfeld was a staunch reminder that nostalgia can carve a very comfortable getaway for 1990s comedians, but also because, at this stage in your career […]

Movie Review: Extraction

Movie Review: Extraction

Sometimes all you need is a brain-dead action movie. Netflix provide a lot of brain-dead content, more so as of late than ever before. Dribbling out The Main Event in a spectacularly dull fashion to the critical response of a collective shrug of the shoulders. Tiger King has allowed Netflix to ride the wave of […]

Book Review: Naturally Tan by Tan France

Book Review: Naturally Tan by Tan France

I first discovered Tan France when watching Next in Fashion on Netflix earlier this year. I decided to go and binge-watch Queer Eye after that, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I thought it was only right that my next step was to read Tan’s memoir ‘Naturally Tan’ which was published in 2019. Firstly, learning of […]

Movie Review: Fractured

Movie Review: Fractured

Stonehearst Asylum director Brad Anderson is back with Netflix Original ‘Fractured’. The movie is through the subjective eye of Ray Monroe (Sam Worthington), on a not-so-successful family road trip. This astonishing psychological thriller explores the complexity of the human mind in a uniquely restricted narrative, leaving unanswered questions every step of the way… but what […]
