Stranger Things Season Three Review

After the copy and paste approach to an underwhelming second season of the Duffer Brothers 80s sci-fi homage, a new tactic was desperately required to freshen up Netflix’s major USP to prevent stagnation. The good news is that the show’s creators haven’t rested on their laurels and delved into their magical sack of science fiction … Continue reading ʍǝıʌǝᴚ 3 uosɐǝS sƃuıɥ⊥ ɹǝƃuɐɹʇS

Suicide Squad (2016) Review

It wasn't supposed to be like this. By the time “Suicide Squad” rolled around, we were meant to be primed for a little down 'n' dirty fun to counterpoint the portentous deus ex machinations of the Titans of the DC universe duking it out in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. Instead, things have turned … Continue reading Suicide Squad (2016) Review

Developed from a plot created by Michael G Wilson, the script was drafted by the “Casino Royale” team of Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and … Continue reading Quantum Of Solace (2008) Review

The Equalizer (2014) Review

“The Equalizer” is part remake, part reimagining and part origin story. Taking its inspiration from the 1980s Edward Woodward starring TV Series, the movie dirties it up a bit and adds a hard edge of brutality, taking us back to a time before Robert McCall had become The Equalizer. Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is living … Continue reading The Equalizer (2014) Review

A Walk Among The Tombstones (2014) Review

This is no vacuous retread of the rambunctious “Taken” series nor is it implausible action nonsense like “Non Stop”. Neeson lays aside the superhero persona here to deliver a performance of real weight in this atmospheric serial killer drama based on the novel by Lawrence Block. When a drug trafficker’s wife is kidnapped and murdered, … Continue reading A Walk Among The Tombstones (2014) Review
