Synesthesia or Synaesthesia is a neurological condition in which information meant to stimulate one of your senses stimulates another or several of your senses. When I was young, a member of my family described food in terms of colour and shape and it used to sound simultaneously novel […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?

Without Remorse isn’t the worst movie around but the problem is we’ve already seen it. Hollywood has been churning out spy-slash-assassin movies for decades and after the James Bond era we had the Jason Bourne era; more grit and more realism, but even that has become a stale […]
Things Heard & Seen is a haunted house horror-mystery written and directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, based on the novel All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage. Streaming on Netflix from today, the movie stars Amanda Seyfried and James Norton as artist Catherine and […]
Stowaway is a science fiction thriller written by Joe Penna and Ryan Morrison and directed by Penna. Showing on Netflix from today, the on-screen blurb describes this movie as “A three-person crew on a mission to Mars faces an impossible choice when an unplanned passenger jeopardizes the lives […]
As if we didn’t already have enough superhero movies, Netflix today brings us Thunder Force, a superhero comedy film starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer. This flick is written and directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone, writer and director of Tammy and The Boss, and as expected, this […]
Publish anything online about the Coronavirus these days, and you’ll most likely be relegated to the arse-end of search engine hell, especially if you disagree with the status quo. That’s perfectly fine, because this article is about Bill Gates and I’m as qualified to write about his life […]
Zack Snyder’s Justice League (also marketed as Justice League: The Snyder Cut) is yet another disappointing film from DC’s stable of comic book adaptations. Let’s face it: aside from the blip of stand-alone drama Joker, almost every superhero film from the DC Extended Universe beginning with Man Of […]
SAS: Red Notice is the latest Sky Original film to premiere on the satellite platform and unfortunately it’s another dead duck. Based on the book of the same name by Andy McNab, the plot is about a family-based, terrorist group known as the “Black Swans” who take over […]
Coming 2 America is the sequel to the ’80s classic comedy Coming To America and it’s released today on Amazon Prime Video. The majority of sequels are of course inferior; they’re usually uninspired cash-grabs that retread over the original narrative or nostalgia vehicles for old people (which includes […]
Ridley Scott is such a disappointment, both in terms of filmography and personality. His films have been waning since the 1980s, slowly getting more and more mundane as the years have progressed and yet his legion of toady fans (which includes critics and members of the public) keep […]
I can’t recall a time in which our terrestrial TV schedule was this poor, in fact there hasn’t been a worse time for British television. Take a look at your TV guide, it’s chock-full of shows about baking, pottery, sewing, and painting, like your dead grandparents have risen […]
Twist is billed as a British crime drama and a modern day take on Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist, but what it actually is; is excrement disguised as a movie. Directed by Martin Owen (nope, me neither) and written by a gaggle of unknowns, Twist seems less like […]
BritBox is a very bland streaming service that’s “created by BBC and ITV” but seemingly cooked-up by a Brexiteer; someone who’s overly-impressed with our country but who’s failed to check what we have the rights to before waving the Union Jack. With its drab, dark grey interface and […]
