‘Sound Bite’ of the week…

“Batman was comedy. Let’s face it. What I loved about Batman was his total lack of awareness when it came to his interaction with the outside world. He actually believed nobody could recognise him on the phone, when he was being Bruce Wayne, even though he made no attempt to […]

The Mummy (2017)

I will try to keep my summation of the new reimagining of the classic mummy legend by Universal Studios, as short and succinct as possible.  Mainly because there’s not really that much to say about it.  But also I think that allowing any more space or time, is tantamount to […]

Prevenge (2016)

After a weekend of praise for one female director reaching a breakneck magnitude another, in the form of Alice Lowe, has been bubbling quietly with murderous subtlety with her melancholy comedy horror.
