Netflix haven’t got the best track record when it comes to original movies, and they don’t seem to be setting that straight anytime soon. Sandra Bullock (Ocean’s 8, […]

FILM REVIEW: American Assassin (2017)

Starring The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien and Birdman’s Michael Keaton, American Assassin is an action packed thriller with a LOT of fighting.

Tom Hardy is Legendary as the Kray twins.

Siarlot Lloyd reviews Legend Apparently, if the Kray Twins had been one role, Tom Hardy’s acting in Legend would be the highest paid role in film history. And he earns it. Hardy is a joy to watch, portraying both Ron’s menacing madness and Reggie’s fast talking, dapper villain-protagonist so well that it’s easy to forget that the Krays […]
