David MacKenzie’s Outlaw King does some good in telling Robert the Bruce’s story but is unfortunately surrounded by some poor attempts to make this film feel more authentic. The whole scope of the film feels wrong to begin with. If you are going to tell the story of one man […]

Outlaw King



With his sister Jennifer (Elen Rhys) is abducted by a cult and his father incapacitated by sorrow, it is left up to Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) to plot his way into attempting to rescue her from her captors on a remote island. In true Gareth Evans style this would be […]

Apostle



Firstly I went into this series with little to no expectations of anything exceptional or groundbreaking and how wrong I was. From the first moments of episode 1 I have been enthralled with the characters and their stories, and that is a big part of why this series has made […]

The Haunting of Hill House



Last Chance U changes school from East Mississippi Community College (EMCC) to Independence Community College (ICC), Kansas for this year’s show. There is an added on extra episode outside of the ICC run to follow up what happened after the show’s cameras stopped rolling at EMCC, which is interesting to […]

Last Chance U Season 3



Preparing for the return of Last Chance U (although it is going to be a different school this time) shortly on Netflix I decided to get myself back up to speed with a watch of the All or Nothing series currently available on Amazon Prime (at least it is available here […]

Bright is nowhere near as bad as had been made out, and the fact that it has been green-lit for a follow up (allegedly) shows that, as can happen, the viewers aren’t all in step with the critics this time. Yes, it is a bit ham-fisted with its dealing of […]

Bright



After seeing that this was on Film4, and having missed the opportunity (if you can call it that!) to see this when it was on Netflix I decided to have a punt and see what this one is like. So, it didn’t start very well with me mistakingly thinking that […]

The Pyramid



Another Netflix original, straight to stream. Duncan Jones‘ latest promised much and, to be fair, it looked fantastic. However there are too many issues throughout for me to enjoy this film. A childhood accident combined with a strict Amish upbringing has left Leo unable to speak (due to refusing the […]

Ok, so I wasn’t actually in a good place when I saw this. A week off work with flu, I needed something to help cheer me up and along came The Good Place. Well it didn’t really come along I kind of stumbled onto it whilst trawling through the numerous […]
