Review – Mare of Easttown

Welcome to Easttown, Pennsylvania. A dreary excuse for a town and the epicenter of the world’s misery and heartache, if this limited series is to be believed. Detective Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet) hasn’t had the best life. She’s divorced, lives with her bickering mother and teenage daughter, and is trying to raise her grandson after …

Review – The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

The Warren’s are back for a third installment of the paranormal success series. This time they’re doing it without James Wan at the helm, or an interesting story for that matter.

Review – Love, Victor Season 2

After season one’s open ending where Victor finally gathers all the courage to come out to his parents and sister, season two picks up right where we left off to then jump ahead in time. With that the creators also seem to have thrown overboard the innocent teenage feel of season one, and go for …

Review – A Quiet Place Part ll

Review – Finding You

P1440422.RW2 Finding You is the type of film you put on on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The type of romantic comedy of which there are plenty and doesn’t reinvent the genre. It’s a film that knows its target audience and that’s where it’ll find most of its praise. Finley (Katherine McNamara – ‘The Stand’), a …

Review – Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan stars in WITHOUT REMORSE Photo: Nadja Klier © 2020 Paramount Pictures Tom Clancy and international conspiracies. Nothing groundbreaking. Even Co-writer Taylor Sheridan, well known for Hell Or High Water, and personal underrated favourite, Wind River, can’t save what’s been done so many times before. After John Kelly’s (Michael B. Jordan – Just …
