Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile (2019)

For as long as I can remember, I have been morbidly obsessed with serial killers. The thing about being a true crime fanatic is that the worse the crimes are, the more you are drawn to their details, and in the world of serial killings it doesn’t get much worse than Ted Bundy. The notorious…

The Kindergarten Teacher (2018)

More than any other period in the cinematic calendar, the few months following the Oscars is absolutely the strangest time when it comes to movie releases. Not only are the theatres more full of foreign language films and unheralded indies than in the summer, autumn or winter, in the UK especially, we are treated to…

Dumplin’ (2018)

If there are two things that are going to make a film an automatic hell yes for me, it is Dolly Parton and drag queens. As it happens, Netflix’s latest original movie release Dumplin’ promised both. Add in the fact that I still enjoy the novelty of being able to watch a brand new release…

With Okja, the ball of interest began to roll upon the release of the first bizarre trailer, and the film stayed in the press during the length of the Cannes Film Festival both for…

TV Corner: House Of Cards (Season 3)

I held back for a couple of weeks before writing this season review, keeping in mind the fact that most House Of Cards viewers, unlike myself, would sensibly pace themselves to both savour the show and maintain the order of their personal and professional lives. Unfortunately, that kind of rational is not for me, and…
