Édgar Ramírez is one bland bastard. To me, he’s a Venezuelan Gerard Butler; a bearded, middle-aged, dull-arsed, pudgy-faced “actor” who should have pursued his original career rather than inflicting his non-skills on all us cinema-goers. Whilst on the subject of hack Scot actors, Edgar is a little bit […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Why do the most mediocre comedians become household names? From panel shows, clip shows, to talk shows (as well as performing stand-up comedy to an audience of dullards) Rob Beckett is seemingly on every channel. But why? How did Rob become famous? Is it because he’s a distinctive […]
I don’t know what it’s like in Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, but seeing every celebrity on television here in the UK from mid-October onward wearing a Remembrance Poppy, is to put it lightly; irritating, not to mention fucking ironic. The same people who keep harping-on about fighting […]
What do you do when you’re a washed-up has-been who’s last few creations have been trash? You begin to retread over your past, recreating your most popular works – that’s what. Let’s face it: The Dictator and Grimsby were utter shite, so Sacha Baron Cohen has recently been […]
There’s always several movies released each year that aren’t “bad” in the conventional sense but because they’ve been so overrated by critics, they feel all the more disappointing when you finally watch them. Ever since its film festival run, Saint Maud has been lauded as “chilling”, “disturbing”, and […]
Hubie Halloween is Netflix’s seasonal offering, an autumnal comedy horror co-produced, co-written, and starring Adam Sandler. Sandler plays Hubie Dubois, a mild-mannered dolt with a Jeff Bridges underbite obsessed with health and safety. The on-screen blurb reads: “Hubie’s not the most popular guy in Salem, Mass., but when […]
Isn’t it strange how certain cases of racism go unnoticed whereas others get publicised and hyped-up? There must be some kind of league table of bigotry because depending on the ethnicity of the target, celebrities can say the most offensive shit and nobody bats an eyelid. Case in […]
Quibi’s Wireless is billed as a “survival thriller” but there’s nothing “thrilling” about it. The plot revolves around a college student named Andy (played by Tye Sheridan) who gets stuck in a blizzard whilst on his way to a party… whoop-de-doo. Writer-directors Jack Seidman and Zach Wechter have […]
With the release date of Bill & Ted Face The Music, the third installment in the franchise, continually getting pushed back thanks to Covid-19, I’ve been waking up in a cold sweat for the past few months, not because of the Coronavirus but from premonitions of a disappointing […]
Donald Trump didn’t create racists, he merely emboldened them. Did police brutality exist during the Clinton and Obama administrations? Yes. Did war (oh sorry, liberation) continue under Clinton and Obama? Of course. But most fake-liberals like to think prejudice and jingoism is something unique to the current president […]
Tenet is the latest film from the monumentally overrated writer-director Christopher Nolan. The plot centres around the prevention of World War III and more importantly time-inversion, hence the palindrome title. The story has been kept under wraps with no one disclosing too much information other than this short […]
With movie theatres still closed in parts of the world, today we have another attempt at a stream-at-home blockbuster. With the disappointing The Old Guard in the back of my mind, I was hoping Netflix’s latest offering Project Power would be better. Unfortunately it’s not; there’s more corny […]
The mid-to-late ’90s and early ’00s were chock-full of shite Pop music. With bling bling “players” ruining Hip-Hop and backward-baseball-cap-wearing “dudes” wrecking Rock, music was being steered by both sides into a ditch, a ditch that was smack-bang in the middle-of-the-road. Nu-Metal which was a combination of these […]
