Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans

Atti (Sebastian Croft) has a problem. Drafted to the UK for a crime he absolutely committed (But which was, in fariness, very funny) he’s bested by Orla (Emilia Jones). Orla, it turns out, has her own set of problems. She’s the daughter of Arghus (Nick Frost),a Celtic chieftain who insists on keeping her off the […]

Ad Astra

Here are three statements which are going to seem contradictory. Ad Astra tries very hard to explore the horrors of toxic masculinity. It succeeds, but does so in a way that will actively annoy many audiences.. You should probably watch it anyway. In the near(ish) future, Major Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is working on the kilometers tall

Criminal: UK

Every now and then you find yourself admiring something for its purity, if not necessarily it’s beauty. Criminal: UK, is one quarter of the four country justice tour that Netflix have just released. Each 45 minute episode unfolds inside ‘The Box’ where a suspect is being interrogated. All we know is the elemental nature of the

Wu Assassins Season 1

Wu Assassins, on paper, is the exact sort of urban fantasy cheese I run headlong at. Iko Uwais, the astonishing lead of The Raid movies, starts as Kai Jin. An Indonesian-Chinese chef and the adopted son of Triad leader Uncle Six (Byron Mann), Kai discovers that he is the Wu Assassin. Five elemental powers have echoed down

Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock

That was FUN! He said with a combination of relief and surprise! Here’s the thing, I don’t mind Jurassic World and Fallen Kingdom. Fallen Kingdom, whatever the Hell literally every decision made about Toby Jones’ character was aside, is actually a surprisingly good and emotionally resonant time. The commodification of the dinosaurs makes perfect sense, as does the way that

The Boys Season 1

Always start with a song. Or your lead character using a laser visioned infant like a flamethrower. Either’s good. The Boys does NOT play around. In the slightest. However, unlike the comic it’s based on it’s vastly successful in dealing with issues of everything from sexual abuse to corporate malpractice. Also Karl Urban spends eight episodes playing the

Auto Draft

Gunjita and Cav are Gleem Galactic scientists. They work in orbit, searching for extraterrestrial life and how it can be used to extend terrestrial life. But when they find out, maybe, that they have something, it opens up a rift between the two. Juving, the winding back of the body’s clock, has doubled human lifespan

Crawl

And so from Dora a few days ago to Hayley. Played by Kaya Scodelario (The other secret weapon of the Maze Runner franchise and one half of one of my favorite Robbie Williams videos), Hayley Keller is a Florida U student on a swimming scholarship. She’s great. But she’s not quite great enough and her scholarship is in danger. So much

Dora And The Lost City Of Gold

Okay first off that’s not Dora. That’s what happens when photoshop googles ‘absinthe’. It’s a shame any time that sort of crime against cinematography and facial structure happens but double so with a movie like this. This? is Dora. And this is one of the best movies not enough people will see this year. Dora and
