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 […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
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. […]
Why do we Brits make shite horrors these days? We’re the home of Hammer Horror and Amicus and we produced so many classics back in the golden era of horror, but all we create now is pretentious shite that resembles a film student’s final year flick. This brings […]
Reminiscence is a science fiction mystery romance, but the real mystery is why this sci-fi trash was ever put into production. Maybe because HBO’s Westworld was a success, its writer and producer Lisa Joy was given a chance to write and direct a movie for WarnerMedia. In case […]
Free Guy is a science fiction action comedy that ticks all the right boxes if you’re a Ryan Reynolds fan or someone who just wants to indulge in mindless, popcorn-chomping fun. If you’re curious to know what the bastard child of The Truman Show (1998) and They Live […]
When I wrote a review of Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, a commenter described a feeling of “Ryan Reynolds fatigue” which I have to say, I completely agree with. Back in the noughties, Reynolds was in a few shitty B-movies, and even when one of his films somehow made its […]
