Review: Dark Phoenix (2019)

Dark Phoenix aka X-Men The Last Stand 2 is the final entry to the wildly varying X-Men franchise, provided that the abysmal looking New Mutants film never sees the light of day. The film takes place in the 1990s and sees the events of the Dark Phoenix saga […]

Review: After Life

Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix series After Life came out last week. Written, directed by and starring Gervais, the 6 episode mini series sees middle-aged Tony trying to cope with the loss of his wife to cancer. This series is deeply conflicting to me, and I can’t fully decide […]
