Daredevil (2015-2018 TV Series) Review

As a few of you may know, I often struggle to keep up to date with TV shows. I never got past the fourth season of Game of Thrones, I’m not entirely sure if I ever finished Breaking Bad, and I’ve never seen so much as one episode of The Sopranos. Even shows that interest…

Obituary: Christopher Plummer

Christopher Plummer 1929-2021 “You’re only two years younger than me, darling. Where have you been all my life?” These are the words said by Christopher Plummer to his newly-won Oscar back in 2011. An Oscar some would say was also well-overdue. As unbelievable as it may seem, Plummer was only first nominated two years earlier,…

Countdown Review

There are probably some confused UK readers right now wondering why I’m reviewing an afternoon letters-and-numbers game show, but rest assured, I am not. Although frankly, I wish I were. Now and again a film will come along with an interesting concept, but with no idea how to effectively use it, just like this one,…

A Look Back at January 2021

I’ve long thought that ‘Blue Monday’ and the concept of January being a depressing month was a self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s a belief I’ve found wavering this month however, while I sit at home, in lockdown, with the future uncertain. I don’t mind admitting that I’ve found motivation hard to come by this month. First I…

They Shall Not Grow Old Review

It’s fair to say that, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t see as many films based around the First World War as we do its successor. Overall, it feels like there hasn’t been a second of World War II left undocumented, while your average Joe will know very little about The Great War,…

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Review

In recent years, Alfonso Cuaron’s stock in Hollywood has only grown. Before this film, his work was celebrated in Mexico, yet mixed in the United States, as is the story for many Mexican filmmakers, including Cuaron’s friends Guillermo del Toro, and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, both of whom started their career to much acclaim in their…

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Review

In my last Harry Potter review, I outlined some problems with the early days of the series while it was finding its feet. They were innocuous issues, sure, and the film as a whole was a perfectly acceptable adaptation. I regret to report that this subsequent film doesn’t particularly fix the issues, in fact, it…

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Review

I’ll be honest with you, dear reader, January is a difficult time for me. Especially this year, the post-Christmas slump has hit hard and I’ve found myself severely lacking motivation. I have a pile of films to watch and review, but all I’ve found myself watching for the past week is the Harry Potter films.…

The Conjuring Review

There are a few recurring comments throughout a few of my reviews. Recently a prominent one was about the 80s, but one that has recurred a fair amount over the entire history of my website has been my takes on horror movies. Since I started reviewing, my views on the genre have softened after seeing…
