Retro Review – ‘Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood’ (1996)

In the second feature film based on the iconic Tales from the Crypt comics/series ‘Bordello of Blood‘, the Crypt Keeper returns to tell the story of a funeral parlor that moonlights as a vampire bordello.

Netflix Review – ‘Coffee & Kareem’

Let me make one thing clear, just because this film stars a 12-year-old teaming up with an incompetent cop, doesn’t make this a film for teens. It’s highly inappropriate, vulgar and violent AF. But guess what, ‘Coffee & Kareem’ is Netflix’s ‘Good Boys‘ – a film in which three teenagers find a bag of drugs […]

Review – ‘The Gentlemen’

The rather unconventional visionary Guy Ritchie has been stuck in a Hollywood rut for the last ten years, ever since he committed to big budget, visual effects heavy films, such as Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and this year’s underwhelming live action version of the classic Disney, ‘Aladdin‘. The British director goes […]

Review – ‘Bombshell’

“What the FOX?” This bombshell couldn’t have dropped at a better time. The #MeToo movement has been in full force for a couple of years now, with victims coming forward and sharing their horrific experiences around sexual harassment.
