Dark Matter – Season 2 Episode 8

Dark Matter

“Episode 21 – Stuff to Steal, People to Kill” Dark Matter gives us its version of the sci-fi classic alternate-reality episode in ‘Stuff to Steal, People to Kill’. And the big question that has to be asked whenever a show decides to use a trope is: did the show add anything new to the idea or…

David Brent: Life on the Road

David Brent

Ricky Gervais brings back everyone’s favourite clueless boss in David Brent: Life on the Road which sees Brent trying to revive his music career with a self funded tour. I will happily go on record as someone who was a huge fan of The Office back in the day. It was the perfect blend of…

Lights Out

Lights Out

There are evil things hiding in the dark in David F. Sandberg’s Light Out where a family are terrorised by a foe who attacks when the lights are off. Pretty much everyone will have had a fear of the dark at some point in their lives. This makes for perfect horror film fodder as most…

Pete’s Dragon

Dragon

David Lowery brings the Disney classic Pete’s Dragon to a new generation in this modern re-imagining that blazes it’s own trail.

The Shallows

The Shallows

It’s woman vs. nature as Blake Lively takes on a Great White Shark in Jaume Collet-Serra’s survival thriller The Shallows.
