Joker Opinion Piece: We Are The Monsters

Joker Opinion Piece: We Are The Monsters

Before beginning this piece, it is necessary to state that this not going to be an average review in which I would talk about the shots, costumes and the camera lenses used to convey just how bleak and ruthless the city of Gotham is. Although touching on these areas will be unavoidable, the main aim […]

Review: The Professor and the Madman

Review: The Professor and the Madman

You’ll never watch this movie. Not because it’s unavailable or a hard to find movie, but because the marketing department seemed to have all but forgotten about The Professor and the Madman. No press releases, trailers, social media access or promotion from anyone involved. I’ve not seen anything about this movie and came across it simply […]

His action movie outputs are something I’m not well versed in, but nonetheless was a sub-genre I had convinced myself was worth checking out. But after the limited output provided by Cold Pursuit, I’m […]
