Out Of Blue (2018)

I’m sorry guys, I really am. I got as far as having my seat booked for Dumbo, but one final watch of the trailer sealed it for me, I just can’t bring myself to experience that kind of heartbreak all over again. Fool me once, Disney, fool me once. I’m busy preparing myself for the…

Us (2019)

It feels like only yesterday when Jordan Peele came along and knocked us all sideways with the innovative, Oscar winning genius of Get Out. Looking back on my review for the 2017 hit, I’m surprised by how much my appreciation for the film has grown since then, with many of the mixed feelings I expressed…

Fighting With My Family (2019)

It can sometimes feel like a dirty secret as a near thirty year old, but the truth is that, for a time during my younger years, I was a huge fan of the then WWF. Names like The Rock, Triple H, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chyna, they all hold a place in my heart, but…
