Kyle Barratt

The world is full of mysterious creatures whose existence spark constant debate. Scotland have the Loch Ness monster, North America have big foot and the Himalayas have the Yeti but none can hold a candle to England's mythical beast. The Kyle Barratt has eluded scientists for decades, many doubt he even exists and is really a man from Ealing named Carl. Yet time and time again proof arrives in the form of completed and well written articles.
  • Nightsisters: The Clone Wars Episode That Changed Star Wars Forever

    For its first few seasons, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is haphazard and scattershot in almost every way. While rarely unenjoyable, the series is a jumble of tone, chronology, characters, and just overall quality. It’s midway through the third season when this changes and the show transcends from being...
  • 3 Star Wars Characters Who Should, Somehow, Return (And 1 Who Shouldn’t)

    “Somehow, Palpatine returned”. That infamous, memefied line from The Rise of Skywalker has come to symbolise the increasingly thin veil between life and death in Star Wars. The explanation given for the Emperor’s resurrection is brief and unspecific, at least in the confines of the film, but it doesn’t...
  • Fargo Season 4 is Flawed, But it’s Still Fargo

    Fargo season four has some problems. The comedy-drama tries its hand at being a crime epic but bites off more than it can chew. The show works when it zeroes in on specific characters and focuses its vision but too often the sheer sprawl of the narrative forces the...
  • East/West is Fargo’s Masterpiece

    Fargo’s fourth season is a bit of a mess. It’s always enjoyable but often unfocused, bouncing between storylines and ideas that have the potential to be fascinating but never quite gain momentum. The extended 11-episode season had some episodes in the middle of the season edited and reshuffled into...
  • Am I Stupid for Buying DLC I’ll Never Play?

    As of ten minutes ago, the platinum trophy for A Plague Tale: Innocence is sat on my imaginary, digital trophy cabinet and bringing me a sense of accomplishment that I’m sure will soon dissolve as I begin to question my life choices once again. It’s an enjoyable game, certainly...
  • What Does the Empire Want With Nala Se in Star Wars: The Bad Batch?

    The first season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch ends not with the Batch themselves but with Kaminoan cloner Nala Se, now a captive of the Empire, landing on an unknown planet and given an intriguing welcome. Greeted by an imperial scientist wearing familiar clothing, we learn that the...
  • Ranking the Original Eight Friday the 13th Movies

    One presumes ‘Camp Crystal Lake’ is named as such because it is where so many horror tropes were crystalised. Having taken inspiration from Giallo movies like A Bay of Blood, as well as John Carpenter’s Halloween, and Black Christmas before it, Friday the 13th became the ultimate slasher series....
  • Rewatching the ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Episode That Traumatised Me

    The algorithm for YouTube recommendations has vastly improved over the past few years. Whereas once the video streaming site would pelt me with vloggers flaunting their cash or James Corden singing (nah, you’re alright), my YouTube is now an endless hub of Alan Partridge clips (please and thank you)....
  • Star Wars: The Bad Batch Needs to Find its Own Identity

    Being a spin-off of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch is not only a successor series for a variety of characters but also a thematic evolution too. We’ve spent seven seasons and a movie building up the clone troopers as individuals only to heartbreakingly see that individuality...
