• Review – Olympus Has Fallen

    Olympus Has Fallen refers to the secret service code for the event that the White House falls into enemy hands, however ‘The 300 Re-Bourne’ would probably have been a more suitable title for this action packed film, stuffed full of blood, gore, and excessive patriotism. The premise of the...
  • Review – Now You See Me

  • Review – Game of Thrones Season 3

    WARNING: If you’ve not finished Season 3 of Game of Thrones yet kindly return to whence you came – this is no place for you. I’ll be discussing some major plot points, and there’s nothing worse than having the series spoiled (trust me, it sucks).  A couple of months...
