TV REVIEW: Jupiter’s Legacy (2021)

It’s hard not to discuss some of the massively loved but equally uncouth comic book stories without Mark Millar being part of the conversation. An established presence in the industry, his favoured titles Kick-Ass and Kingsman struck a chord that rippled out to the movie…

REVIEW: The Marksman (2021)

It’s still crazy to look at the path the powers-that-be sent Liam Neeson down over the past twenty years. Terminator of human traffickers, bottle-knuckled brawler of wolves and expert fence jumper, Neeson has faced off against an array of foes with the odd misfire in…

REVIEW: LX 2048 (2021)

Some of the greatest science fiction films are those that spark discussion longer than their run time. Is there life beyond the stars? Do androids dream of electric sheep? What does blue milk actually taste like? In Guy Moshe’s latest, he has a dozen different…

REVIEW: Bliss (2021)

Amazon’s current catalogue has earned plenty of praise this week at the Golden Globes and deservedly so. It does however, make it absolutely baffling how a film like Bliss – one of their recent titles – got the go ahead. Riddled with issues from top…
