Review – Prevenge

I’ve got to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I went to start this film. Something about the premise seemed too simple to me and I had basically set myself up to know how this story was going to be told before even starting. To my surprise, Prevenge managed to subvert my expectations to …

Review – ‘I Care a Lot’

Written and directed by J Blakeson, ‘I Care a Lot’ attempts to satirically comment on the pursuit of the American Dream, but the lack of cutting edge storytelling leaves the only cutting edge thing to be Rosamund Pike’s razor sharp bob.  The dark comedy released through Netflix (depending on the country you’re in this could …

Review – ‘Willy’s Wonderland’

Remember video game Five Nights at Freddy’s, in which a couple of animatronics go haywire in some Chuck E. Cheese sorta looking family restaurant?
