Series Review: Stranger Things Season 3

Typically, I am usually a little late when it comes to catching new series; I didn’t get into Game of Thrones until just before the fourth season, I did a massive binge-watch of Vikings ready for season 5 and I hadn’t even heard of Peaky Blinders until last year. But Stranger Things is one that…

Review: Aladdin (2019)

If you have read some of my other reviews, you are probably aware that I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with remakes and reboots, especially when it comes to live-action remakes of classic animated films. Some have smashed it out of the park (Beauty and the Beast) whereas others have fallen woefully short…

Review: Rocketman (2019)

Given the success of Bohemian Rhapsody last year and the upcoming releases of Judy, Stardust and So Much Love, musical biopics are having their moment in the spotlight. I can assure you though, that no other film you see this year will be as spectacularly flamboyant and entertaining as Rocketman. However, this is a film that…

Series Review: GoT 8.6 – The Iron Throne

I know it’s been a week since the final ever episode of Game of Thrones aired but I have only just got around to writing up my thoughts. To be honest with you, I think I’ve been putting it off in a feeble attempt to deny that the show I love has come to an…

Series Review: GoT 8.5 – The Bells

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe there is only one more episode before we are left with a very large Game of Thrones shaped hole in our lives. Things are happening quickly now, leading up to who knows what, but if they stay true to their style, it will be something dramatic…

Series Review: GoT 8.4 – The Last of the Starks

Disclaimer: As always, this post contains spoilers for the latest episode of Game of Thrones – The Last of the Starks. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, you have been warned. Whilst it did not have the same level of excitement and suspense as last week’s episode, The Long Night; episode four, The Last…

Review: Hellboy (2019)

When I started writing this post, I was all ready to go on a rant about the lack of originality in cinema these days and how reboots and remakes are saturating the market; but then I took a closer look at my previous posts and of the twenty-two that I have written so far, only…

Review: Dumbo (2019)

Am I the only one who is getting a little tired of all these live-action remakes of Disney classics? Whilst they are a good way of bringing classic stories to a new audience, a big part of me feels as though these live-action re-imaginings are somewhat undermining the many, many people, with incredible talent and…

Review: Captain Marvel (2019)

I’ll admit that after eleven years and twenty-one movies, I am starting to get a teensy bit bored of the Superhero genre and I’ve found the last few MCU films a little under-whelming on the first viewing. Couple that with all the hype and focus on finally having a female lead** and I actually went…

Series Review: American Gods

American Gods is one of those series that you really want to tell people about but is so difficult to put into words. Adapted from the critically acclaimed Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, American Gods is a twisted blend of fantasy and mythology, a tangled mix of the old and the new. The main storyline…
