Twist is arguably one of the worst films ever made, at least that’s what I thought when I legally watched the film back in January this year, after which I wrote a harmless review. After being slapped with a spurious DMCA copyright complaint by CTW Anti-Piracy on behalf […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from my local cinema which opened with the sentence: “Just what did Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff get up to between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War?” and my response was “Who cares?”. That whole saga is well […]
The Tomorrow War would surely be a flop had it been released in cinemas. A cheap-looking, hackneyed-plotted, science fiction film heaving with militarism isn’t something movie-goers were hankering for but the writer of Deadfall (nope, me neither), the director of The Lego Batman Movie, and “the worst Chris” […]
Seemingly working their way through the function buttons of a keyboard, F9 is the latest film in the Fast & Furious franchise. The plot of this, the ninth movie, doesn’t need much of a synopsis as most of the series is now a convoluted shambles akin to soap […]
In The Earth is one of those boring, pretentious horror films that crop-up now and again, after which a slew of critics proceed to kiss it’s arse. Written and directed by darling of English cinema Ben Wheatley, this is another one of his overrated movies obviously made on […]
I’ll confess I don’t remember much about The Hitman’s Bodyguard, other than hating it. Given that it contained at least two talented actors (Samuel L. Jackson and Gary Oldman) I expected it to make some kind of impression but it didn’t. I guess Jackson and Oldman, who both […]
The third installment in The Conjuring film series subtitled “The Devil Made Me Do It” will be streaming on HBO Max in the U.S. from June 4th along with a theatrical release, and it’ll be released in cinemas-only on May 26th here in the U.K. This is the […]
It’s not like there’s a shortage of zombie-based entertainment. Whether TV shows, films, or games, those decaying, meandering, man-eating corpses are everywhere you look. But what if Hollywood offered us a zombie heist movie? That pricked your ears up didn’t it? 🙄 No, me neither. The truth is: […]
The Woman In The Window was originally scheduled to be released in cinemas in 2019 but after a few test-screenings the film was delayed for re-edits (which is never a good sign). The Coronavirus pandemic then scuppered the 2020 release date so the film was then sold to […]
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 […]
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 […]
