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 […]

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 […]

Opinion: Spinning Out and Why It Should Be Saved

Opinion: Spinning Out and Why It Should Be Saved

On the 4thof February, fans of Netflix original figure skating drama Spinning Out were left devastated following the news that Netflix had cancelled the hit series a mere 4 weeks after its release. The rightful outrage among fans manifested into an outpour of two main hashtags: #SaveSpinningOut and #RenewSpinningOut. Alongside the trending hashtags, a Change.Org petition […]

Movie Review: Miss Americana

Movie Review: Miss Americana

Most that know me would certainly dismiss my music taste as bizarre, limited and frankly a crime against the passion and talent that goes into the musical industry on the whole. A blatant spit in the face of anything that isn’t Britpop, 80s New Wave or a sprinkling soft spot for Frank Sinatra. So no, […]

Opinion Piece: Dancing to Oblivion – The Slow Death of Television

Opinion Piece: Dancing to Oblivion – The Slow Death of Television

If Love Island weren’t warning enough, the recent entries of panel shows and game shows that litter the TV schedule currently should be a sign that the end is nigh. We’ve reached the final, dormant years of television, for it will be replaced by the suited corporations of Netflix and Amazon, churning out adaptations and remakes until the supply […]

TV show review: Netflix’s The Witcher: Season 1

When Netflix, everyone’s favourite endless depository of everything from big budget Hollywood blockbusters and generation defining TV shows to Bollywood musicals and gritty documentaries about the depressing reality of being a football fan in Sunderland, announced their plans to bring out an TV series based on The Witcher, my initial reaction was to remain quietly […]

Netflix is now famously known for its original films and TV shows. There are so many options on the streaming service that it would be impossible to try and watch them all. Some are amazing and some are quite frankly, terrible. This list is going to go back in time to those shows that stood […]

Review: Shaft

Review: Shaft

I’ve got a real soft spot for the Shaft franchise of films. From the original action classic with Richard Roundtree to the modern iterations with Samuel L. Jackson, the series is a consistent piece of film that will always tickle my sudden urge to visit classic action-packed pieces of film. While the story wasn’t necessarily […]

Review: Always Be My Maybe

Review: Always Be My Maybe

Netflix never fails to underwhelm me, and I feel like I should’ve learnt my lesson by now. Their output in the romantic comedy genre is extreme. They provide a great deal of unmemorable, subpar films that somehow manage to attract large audiences for no other reason than the ease of access streaming sites give the modern user. Always Be […]

Review: Tall Girl

Review: Tall Girl

My position as a film critic gives me a rare opportunity and platform, where I can say pretty much whatever I want about the film I have just seen. For some films the time between finishing the viewing and finishing the review is blissfully short, other times it takes weeks, maybe a month or two […]
