‘Dead to Me’ Season 2 – about *that* ending

dead to me season 2 dead to me ending dead to me season 3

So, I did it again. After promising myself I’d savour the new slew of 10 episodes, I binged the entirety of season two of ‘Dead to Me’ in just four days. Oops? Over the course of the comedy-drama’s second season, there were more twists than you could shake a stick at, a surprising number of poignant moments, and a running suspense that raised my anxiety levels more than I’d care to admit. As the storyline raced onward towards its great crescendo, I was left wanting more and more each time the credits roll around. By […]

‘Birds of Prey’ Review: Harley steals the spotlight

Birds of Prey Positive Review

‘Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn’ is quite the mouthful. Should they have just gone with calling it ‘Harley Quinn’? Probably. Does it make the movie any worse for it? Absolutely not. The tongue-in-cheek title is the first clue that this movie isn’t going to be taking itself too seriously. Told from the perspective of the deranged Harley Quinn, it’s full of nudge-nudge, wink-wink moments, over the top action, every colour of the rainbow and a shit ton of action. And I loved it.   *Note: This review is going to contain […]

Why Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor

Matt Smith 11th Doctor favourite best doctor 11 TARDIS season 5 matt smith appreciation 11

All good things must come to an end, I guess. In a show like ‘Doctor Who’ the cast, tone, actors and settings change at the drop of a hat, trawling through different show-runners and lead actors like there’s no tomorrow. It’s unique in this way – no other show does anything like it, but sometimes I can’t help but get a little nostalgic for times long since passed. As I’m watching season 12 of ‘Doctor Who’ unfold currently, I can’t help but miss some of the old faces that once graced our screens. And, for […]

‘The Good Place’ is over and I have a lot of feelings

Everything is most definitely not fine! ‘The Good Place’ is over, and the series finale felt as though it ripped out a part of my heart, tore it into tiny, little pieces and stomped it into the ground. I mean, how am I meant to get through my working week without having a binge-sesh of ‘The Good Place’ to look forward to at the end of the day? With that said, at least the show ended on a high note. I’d rather a show came to a graceful end and bowed out on a high […]

Margo Hanson went from being comic relief to becoming the best character in ‘The Magicians’

‘The Magicians’ is one of the best shows on television – at least in my humble opinion. From the wondrous way it subverts fantasy tropes to the fast-moving, intriguing plot, there’s a little something in this fantastic show for everyone. If you know me, you’ll know that I love a strong female character. Thankfully, ‘The Magicians’ has them in heap loads. From the no-shit taking Kady to the subtlety headstrong Alice, there’s no shortage of feminist icons. One character though, stands head and shoulders above the rest: High King Margo Friggin’ Hanson. The main reason […]

‘RHONY’ just isn’t the same if you’re not guzzling bottles of wine (specifically, Ramona’s pinot), is it? I mean, there’s not much point if you’re not cliiiiipping all of your gal pals and swirling your arms around like some sort of deranged music conductor by the end of it, ala Dorina style. That’s why I came up with the Totally Legit RHONY Drinking Game™. Grab your favourite gal pals, get a season ready to binge, and get that vino at the ready… The drink, of course, is up to your discretion, but for the full […]

If you’re anything like me, you love a little bit of trivia. Y’know, the little tidbits of information about our favourite films that trickle out after release, adding a little depth and humanity to the movies. ‘Star Wars’ is an interesting trivia hole to delve down, as George Lucas […]

‘The Magicians’ is one of the best fantasy shows ever made. Here’s why…

The Magicians TV Show SyFy review think piece any good anaylsis margo high king magicians season 5

If you like the fantasy genre, you’ll like ‘The Magicians’. If you love subverted tropes, strong female characters and an ironic take on the concept of ‘whimsy’, you’ll love ‘The Magicians’. The TV show, based on the first book of the same name, has been described as being a ‘Harry Potter’ – but for adults, booze-guzzling, cynical adults. In my view, it is that, yes, but so much more… Disclaimer: I read the book trilogy about two years ago and devoured them. It’s rare that I get engulfed in a book so quickly, but there […]

Maleficent becomes the Mistress of Mediocrity as Disney’s sequel magic wears thin

Before we begin, I just wanna say that I LOVE Sleeping Beauty. Like, to the point that I know it word for word and it’s my favourite Disney movie of all time. There’s just something about the art style, the dynamic villain and the whimsical setting that resonates with me. So, when I saw the original Maleficent back in 2014, I was horrendously disappointed. Why did they do my horned villainess dirty like that?! With that said, my review of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is probably going to be a little bit skewed – you’ve […]

Little details you might have missed in ‘Joker’

We’re all in agreement that ‘Joker’ is amazing, right? Right? (I’ll take the resounding silence as a yes). It’s a brilliant character piece that deals with mental health and societal issues that gives us a view on Gotham that we’ve never had before. It’s both parts dramatic and nuanced, brutal and subtle all at once. As I wrote in my review, ‘Joker’ is more than a standard comic book villain back story – it’s a piece of cinematic art. That’s why it’s worth giving it another watch – it’s filled with so many subtle details […]
