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

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 […]

Top 5 Netflix Original Series That Went Viral

Top 5 Netflix Original Series That Went Viral

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 […]

Review: Bill Burr: Paper Tiger

Review: Bill Burr: Paper Tiger

It’s no surprise that the advent of the MeToo movement and modern political goings surrounding the likes of Donald Trump, Brexit and all things sexism are at the core of many a stand-up routine. Bill Burr is one of many male comics to take a stance on that, grabbing the topics as forthright content for […]

Review: The Chef Show

I’m a sucker for cookery shows, and my adoration for the movie Chef (2014) and Jon Favreau’s work certainly paved the way towards my interest in The Chef Show; a cooking show that focuses on the feel-good atmosphere kitchen, alongside showing recipes from Chef and the food that inspired it.   Favreau is a feverish and charismatic host. His knowledge of the culinary arts […]

Review: Murder Mystery

Review: Murder Mystery

Oh, great, another Adam Sandler comedy. Sandler has been about as on the ball as a dead seal in these past few years of filmmaking. Jack and Jill seemed to be the catalyst of what has become a landslide of awful, cheap and downright dispiriting films that have taken their toll on the Sandman. His […]

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: 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 […]
