  • ‘The Batman Superman Movie: World’s Finest’ Remains DC’s Best TV Crossover

    Across film and television today, every superhero property is connected to another from its inception. Shared universes dominate and, I admit, it’s enjoyable to see a large storytelling tapestry weaved across multiple series and films. But this does have a downside, something that was made apparent to me when...

    6Souls Review (Xbox Series S)

  • The Great MCU Catch-Up: 2021 Edition

    2021 was a big year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for me it proved too big. While I try to keep up to date with all the films, and now Disney+ series, the sheer frequency of releases gave me that most subjective and personal of afflictions: franchise fatigue....
  • Levels I Can’t Wait to Play in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

  • The Dark Subversive Heart of Home Sweet Home Alone

    Actual quality doesn’t matter with a new Home Alone film. The Internet will judge it harshly regardless. The original film is genuinely great but even so has now transcended to a Christmas classic, embroiled in nostalgia that hides any possible flaws and makes its generations of fans defensive about...
  • Riders of Justice is 2021’s Movie Masterpiece & Perfect Christmas Viewing

    Every piece of marketing for Riders of Justice leads you to make a wrong assumption about the film. The poster of a gun-wielding Mads Mikkelsen on a dark backdrop, the font that’s been used for every action movie for the past 15 years, and even the generic title makes...
  • Ranking Every Friday the 13th Movie

    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....
