Anyone Fancy A Game of Coffee?

Anyone Fancy A Game of Coffee?

By Hannah Smith After long hours of filming – and even longer hours spent in the hair and makeup trailers getting ready – it’s no wonder that the actors and actresses of the new season of Game of Thrones desperately needed a bit of a caffeine boost. Still, it was a shock to hawk-eyed viewers […]

REVIEW: The Walking Dead Season Nine – Episode 16 ‘The Storm’

Credit: NowTV Well, it’s been two weeks since the show finished off the ninth season and the dust has now settled on what I believe was – and it pains me to say this – the worst finale of The Walking Dead ever. The Kingdom has fallen, which I think is the result of the fallout from […]

Ghosts: new BBC comedy off to funnily bad start

Ghosts: new BBC comedy off to funnily bad start

As someone who was a massive fan of the CBBC series Horrible Histories, I was ecstatic to find out that the original cast members of it were coming together for a new comedy on BBC 1 called Ghosts. The basic premise of the show is that a modern couple inherits a haunted house from a […]

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.

Review: The Spy Who Dumped Me

Review: The Spy Who Dumped Me

I’ve not been to Hell before, but I can only imagine The Spy Who Dumped Me and the viewing experience I had is a close enough representation of the seven rings of Hell. Garnering my personal award for worst movie of 2018, it’s no surprise that the Kunis/McKinnon action-comedy is horrendous.   Much like its contemporaries, genre-mockery and […]

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 […]

Review: Swimming with Men

Review: Swimming with Men

Rob Brydon (The Trip, Gavin and Stacey) is a hard-working actor and I’ve personally got a great deal of respect for his ability to flicker between comedy and drama so easily. If he’s able to do so with ease, then why does it feel like he’s not really trying with Swimming with Men?  Maybe it’s the plot, […]

Review: The Highwaymen

Review: The Highwaymen

What could be more interesting than watching Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson running about for two hours, hunting down  Bonnie and Clyde, one of the most prolific crime duos of all time? Quite a lot actually, and after a recent bout with tonsillitis I can safely say Netflix’s new movie, The Highwaymen, is a tiny bit more […]
