AssHat finds himself in the danger zone of giving a perfect score after playing with The Boys (2019)

The Boys TV Review

New from the creative minds (Seth Rogen and Garth Ennis) that adapted the dark, barbaric and satirical comic book "Preacher" for Amazon comes another bleak, cynical and darkly humourous tale in "The Boys". Based in a universe where superheroes walk amongst us, a sub-set of which are known as "The Seven" and are managed by … Continue reading AssHat finds himself in the danger zone of giving a perfect score after playing with The Boys (2019)

Evil Aliens (2006) invades your eyeballs with shock and gore!

Evil Aliens (2006) Review

“Evil Aliens” is something of a Ronseal movie: it does exactly what it says on the tin. A gleefully grisly grindhouse indie sci-fi horror movie, it’s a shlockfest that revels in its sophomoric humour and vulgar splatter-movie aesthetic. Heavily – and obviously – influenced by Peter Jackson’s “Braindead” and Sam Raimi’s “The Evil Dead”, it … Continue reading Evil Aliens (2006) invades your eyeballs with shock and gore!

Assassination Nation (2018) Review

A screeching, graphic howl of incendiary exasperation, “Assassination Nation” adds its voice to the growing chorus of furious condemnation of a society dominated by toxic masculinity, religious hypocrisy and venal depravity overseen by the ever-present spectre of a pussy-grabbing enabler-in-chief, showing in no uncertain terms what will happen when pussy grabs back. The town of … Continue reading Assassination Nation (2018) Review

The Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 Review

Previously on “The Santa Clarita Diet”: Joel (Timothy Oliphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) Hammond are real estate agents in a sleepy Santa Clarita suburb when Sheila suddenly transforms from mousey middle-class soccer mom of Millennial teen Abby (Liv Hewson) to an undead zombie that must regularly feast on the living to remain ‘alive’. The Hammonds … Continue reading The Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 Review

Jigsaw (2017) Review

I have some friends who are super into ‘Escape Room’ puzzles. I kind of wished they were with me when I saw “Jigsaw”, so they could offer me some tips on the fastest escape route from the cinema. It’s not quite cut-your-own-foot-off-to-avoid-watching bad, but it’s pretty close. Ten years after the notorious serial killer Jigsaw’s … Continue reading Jigsaw (2017) Review

The Belko Experiment (2017) Review

There’s a refreshingly straightforward brutality to “The Belko Experiment”, a darkly comic beat-‘em-up from writer James Gunn (“Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2”) and director Greg McLean (“Wolf Creek”). In an isolated American office building in rural Bogota, Colombia, the working day starts much like any other for the ex-pat employees, even if security seems … Continue reading The Belko Experiment (2017) Review

Hardcore Henry (2016) Review

A more intensely intimate version of ‘found footage’, POV is a camera perspective which has struggled to gain traction outside of two niches: video games and porn. There’s barely a hint of the latter, but “Hardcore Henry” owes a great deal to first person shooters. Waking up in a laboratory, Henry finds himself resurrected with … Continue reading Hardcore Henry (2016) Review

The Hateful Eight (2016) Review

There’s no sign of Quentin Tarantino stepping outside his comfort zone for his eighth motion picture, “The Hateful Eight”. Instead, this is Tarantino firmly in his wheelhouse, at the height of his powers and gleefully indulging his every cinematic whim. When bounty hunter John ‘The Hangman’ Ruth (Kurt Russell) is forced to shelter from a … Continue reading The Hateful Eight (2016) Review

The Revenant (2016) Review

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest offering sees yet another story ‘based on true events’ brought to life on the big screen. This time it’s ‘inspired by’ the true story of frontiersman and fur trapper Hugh Glass. When their expedition is attacked, a US Army sponsored fur trapping party look to experienced frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) … Continue reading The Revenant (2016) Review

American Ultra (2015) Review

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (“Project X”), “American Ultra” is a gleefully gory action comedy about a small town stoner who, unbeknownst to him, is a highly trained CIA operative. Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) spends his time getting high and doodling a comic about a monkey astronaut but when a customer utters a strange sequence of words … Continue reading American Ultra (2015) Review

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) Review

Hello cupcakes, Sweetie G here with a look at Paramount’s new comedy horror “Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse”. I loved this film! It has been a loooooooong time since I literally laughed out loud at the cinema and I was still giggling in the car on the way home. If you asked me to … Continue reading Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) Review

Turbo Kid (2015) Review

Tapping into the same rich vein of nostalgia as “Kung Fury”, “Turbo Kid” is a gleeful throwback to the heady days of 1980s sci-fi. But where “Kung Fury” cranked the absurdity up to 11, “Turbo Kid” holds back a little and achieves something quite remarkable: it feels authentic. It perfectly captures the innocent adventure of … Continue reading Turbo Kid (2015) Review

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

Like a scab you just can’t help picking at, the so-bad-you-just-can’t-look-away franchise drops its third instalment with an admirable, if ill-deserved swagger; a selachian mic-drop of ludicrous proportions. When Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) goes to Washington DC to collect the highest civilian honour from the President of the United States, the last thing he expects … Continue reading Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

300: Rise Of An Empire (2014) Review

A belated follow-up to 2006’s “300”, this part prequel/ part ‘side-quel’/ sort of sequel by necessity discards much of the principle cast of the first film to focus on events in the rest of Greece around the time of the Battle of Thermopylae. Cobbling together a handful of sort of related historical events and taping … Continue reading 300: Rise Of An Empire (2014) Review

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010) Review

It's always fun to take the hallmarks of a genre and subvert them but rarely is it done as successfully and to such great effect as it is in "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil". When Tucker and Dale's trip to their newly purchased holiday cabin coincides with a group of college kids camping out in … Continue reading Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010) Review

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Review

Sequels, eh? Always got to go bigger and outdo the one before. Of course, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But what if it’s totally, embarrassingly inept, shouldn’t you try and fix it just a tiny little bit? Not if you’re the makers of “Sharknado 2: The Second One”. No, siree. Instead, they demonstrate … Continue reading Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Review

Sharknado (2013) “Review”

Having finally got round to watching it the day after the UK TV Première (I missed it because I was out watching "Only God Forgives" and we know how that turned out), I wasn't going to review it. After all, what more was there to be said that wasn't tweeted when it debuted on American TV? … Continue reading Sharknado (2013) “Review”
