Why Should You Watch: The Crown ?

Number 1: We’re fed up of American Politics For the past 18 months it’s been Trump this, Clinton that. We’re exhausted. So why not wind down all this U.S presidential debate nonsense, and watch ourselves some good old fashioned 1950’s Royal British politics. The Crown is a series describing the …

Review: Hacksaw Ridge (Spoiler Free)

Hacksaw Ridge is the latest film starring Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving and Teresa Palmer. Oh, and it’s also directed by Mel Gibson. To say this film is star studded would be an understatement. But unfortunately, the film does not live up to the performance of the …

Review: Hell or High Water (Spoiler-Free)

Hell or High Water starring Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster has come out of nowhere and has easily become one of my favourite films of the year. Chris Pine gives a performance far from his usual pseudo-action roles and plays the smart, withdrawn Toby phenomenally. It’s the subtlety …

Why Should You Watch: Luke Cage ?

Number 1: The Killer 80’s Vibe The show isn’t set in the 80’s, if that’s something you may find off putting. But what it does have is a vibe like so many 80’s shows. The series is cheesy, corny, funky and got the perfect amount of action to keep you …

Why Should You Watch: Atlanta ?

Number 1: It Get’s Way too Real If you have ever seen any comedies like Love, Flaked or BoJack Horseman you would start seeing a trend in the new, more popular comedy shows. They are all horribly depressing. Atlanta isn’t any different. It can be funny, but most of the time …

Why Should You Watch: Narcos ?

Number 1: It’s Unbelievable Magical Realism is a concept which was invented in Columbia. It’s where reality meets fiction, and things become so far fetched that you begin questioning if everything is real or not. That is the definition of Pablo Escobars drug cartel. The money, the drugs, the violence. You …

Why Should You Watch: Mr. Robot ?

    Number 1: The Hacking isn’t People Slamming the Keyboard Now you may be asking what this means. In films like Hackers, or the Matrix, or Swordfish, when people want to hack any regards, all you see is a flurry of hand movements, cheesy lines like “Aaaaaaaaand we’re in”, and lines …

Why Should You Watch: Preacher ?

Number 1: It Makes Zero Sense Here’s a list of things I found rather strange to happen in Preacher’s pilot episode . Deep breath and: A Home-made rocket launcher, an African Preacher exploding onto his congregation, a plane fight complete with medieval weaponry and someone doing a rather accurate impression of …

Why Should You Watch: Wayward Pines ?

Number 1: It Constantly Keeps You Guessing Wayward Pines is very different in it’s plot. It’s rare to have a show that is completely unpredictable. Even shows that used to keep us on our toes have become a bit easy to guess what happens, sorry Game of Thrones, but it’s …

Why Should You Watch: Peaky Blinders ?

Number 1: Red Right Hand is the Intro Song Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with Red Right Hand, my advice is to familiarize yourself with it. It’s bloody good. Nothing sets the atmosphere of a show better than hearing Nick Cave, yes THE Nick Cave, singing of the …

Why Should You Watch: Game of Thrones ?

Number 1: Your Friends Will Stop Bugging You. Hopefully Let me set the scene. There’s a really popular show on at the moment. All your friends are watching it. You haven’t. Every day, every single day they keep on telling you to watch the show, and you always make an …

Why Should You Watch: Daredevil ?

Number 1: The Fight Scenes are Amazing In the first season you’ve got one of the most well choreographed single shot fight scene with Daredevil. In season 2, you have 2 totally bad-ass fight scenes that just leave you drooling. It’s not just the choreography, its the realism in the …

Why Should You Watch: The People v. O.J ?

Number 1: David Schwimmer is a Kardashian Now, I’ll admit I’m not the biggest of Kardashian fans, but i’ll wager a few readers are, so they might find this interesting.  Yes, our very own Ross from the hit show Friends, plays the patriarch of the Kardashian family and O.J Simpsons …

Review: Where To Invade Next

Hint: It’s not Australia Where To Invade Next is the latest film from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. You may have seen his documentaries such as Bowling For Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11 or Roger & Me, all ace films in my opinion. Alternatively you may have seen him spoofed in The …

Why Should You Watch: 11.22.63 ?

Number 1: It Star’s James Franco I know he isn’t as big of a selling point as he was in the Green Goblin days, but James Franco in 11.22.63 proves he’s a legitimate actor. But we all knew this, right? Remember pitying him in Freaks and Geeks, or crying with laughter at Pineapple Express, and even covering …
