Peeping Tom, in case you don’t know, is a drama-thriller directed by Michael Powell starring Karlheinz Böhm and Anna Massey. The film which is about a voyeuristic serial killer who wields a film camera with a blade secreted in the tripod, is more known for the controversy stirred-up […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
This review may feel like déjà vu to followers of this site, but since most movies of today feel like repeats, that’s quite appropriate. Go to the cinema these days and you’ll face an incessant deluge of repetitiveness; from umpteen superhero offerings to nostalgic remakes or reboots. Aside […]
With a poster plastered with mostly five stars, Spencer has to be one of the most overrated films this year. It opens with a kind of disclaimer which tells the viewer that what follows is “a fable from a true tragedy” (translates as made-up nonsense) but what pray […]
John Hughes’ original Home Alone is an undisputed holiday classic and Hughes’ sequel Home Alone 2: Lost In New York is watchable but unneeded (although it’s always great to see Tim Curry on screen). Hughes then penned the awful follow-up Home Alone 3 but it’s clear that once […]
Over the last few years, it really feels like Marvel Studios are scraping the superhero barrel as they slowly get incorporated and assimilated into The Walt Disney Company money-making machine. Eternals is the 26th film in the slowly deteriorating MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) cog, which now seems to […]
It’s so irritating when a film has an intriguing premise, a talented and likeable lead, and all the visuals to make your eyes widen with delight, but then, approximately half-way through, it all goes horribly wrong. This is what watching Last Night In Soho was like; it started […]
It can be quite interesting to see language evolve, but more often than not, all we witness is slang terms becoming mainstream; their meaning changed and in most cases, weakened (remember Ali G‘s use of “Babylon”?). “Woke” was a term that meant being politically aware or awake to […]
2018’s Halloween was overrated shite in my opinion, but for anyone who enjoyed that garbage (and apparently there were lots of you) director David Gordon Green and writers Danny McBride and Scott Teems today bring you their second movie in a planned trilogy of horror trash. If you […]
It was so strange seeing a load of critics and most of the public squirting over Halloween three years ago. In my opinion, it was one of the most disappointing and overrated reboot-slash-sequels of all time. The original 1978 version by John Carpenter is a horror classic. It’s […]
I remember when the first season of The Sopranos aired and a few people thought it was a poor man’s Goodfellas. The further and longer something goes on however, the public’s opinions slowly change, and when the show’s leading star passes away, even more people show up to […]
There’s nobody more pleased than me when James Wan makes a horror film. In my opinion, he’s a master of the horror genre. Unfortunately, James is very mediocre at directing action movies. Whenever Wan makes a Fast & Furious or an Aquaman, they’re quite forgettable when compared with […]
Would a celeb apologise for being a hate-filled bigot if they weren’t famous? From Mark Wahlberg to Leigh Francis, public apologies come thick and fast when a celebrity wants to come across as ashamed, but if they were a regular Joe, they’d most likely continue in their prejudiced […]
Seeing the quote “The Year’s Get Out” written over the poster, I took this to mean that Candyman is this year’s overrated horror movie that cliched white liberals will enjoy and typical white, anti-BLM conservatives will hate. Taking a look at the Google reviews, I think I’m correct. […]
