I review a whole season rather than individual episodes, so there is a chance of spoilers. If you haven’t watched the whole season yet, stop reading now! When your main character is a villain, the only way to keep the stories interesting … Continue reading House of Cards (Season 4) TV Review
I hate the thought of remakes for no reason than to cash-in on a previous movie’s success. Recent examples would be Point Break, Robocop and although not released yet, you arguably Ghostbusters. These movies didn’t need to be remade or re-imagined … Continue reading Could watching the remake before the original mean you like it more?
3 of the Best vs 3 of the Worst is exactly what it sounds like – 3 of the best examples of either an actor, film series, genre, etc. versus 3 of the worst. It’s also an opportunity for you … Continue reading 3 of the Best vs 3 of the Worst: Movie Robots
When I was a kid, with only four TV channels available, I would often be lucky enough to catch the rare and largely unseen movie tie-in cartoons on Channel 4.

With The Avengers: Age of Ultron proving expanded cinema franchises are a success, a lot of other movies are following suit. Star Wars is set to use the same model to bring at least one new movie a year, Ghostbusters will … Continue reading My ideas for new Expanded Cinema Franchises
It is some feat that Neill Blomkamp has managed to create a modern, lovable robot that will rival even the droids from Star Wars. Chappie is adorable, cute and will have audiences both laughing and crying in equal measure as he … Continue reading Chappie (2015) Review
This is slightly different to my usual What If… posts. I’m not going to speculate but instead invite discussion. My sister asked me this question and it stuck with me because it’s not as straight-forward an answer as you’d think. … Continue reading What If… You could only watch the movies of one actor/actress?
I don’t really remember the original Robocop. I usually like to watch the original of any reboot/remake before I see the new version but I didn’t get the chance to do that with the new version of Robocop. It means I … Continue reading Robocop (2014) Review
