Game of Thrones – Season 7 Episode 1: “Dragonstone”

I’m back again with the newest recap of Game of Thrones! It’s season seven – technically the last season, but it’s split into two half-seasons of seven and six episodes each. Even though I accidentally caught some huge (and potentially completely destructive) spoilers on Reddit, which I half-regret, I’m optimistic for this final season. In […]

Raw Meat (1973): “Mind the doors!”

June 2017 Favourites

Happy July everyone! Hope everyone had an amazing June and is having an excellent July so far. As ever, the year appears to be moving forward quicker than we could have expected, and now all of a sudden it’s tax return season. (Yay?) I didn’t have a lot of time to write this month, but […]

I Need To Talk About Twin Peaks (Season 3 Episode 8)

Holy moly. I know I initially said I wasn’t going to recap the new Twin Peaks episodes, because Game of Thrones is my main recapping responsibility and I can’t add another recapping job to my repertoire. But my god. Season three, episode eight. The tagline of the episode is “Gotta light?”, and I think everyone […]

Blindspot 2017: Marathon Man (1976)

A suspenseful thriller film with a solid historical backbone, Marathon Man (1976) plays host to some masterful performances between actors who share excellent chemistry, and some iconic scenes that are so anxiety-provoking that they are almost physically painful. Its synopsis is as follows: A graduate history student is unwittingly caught in the middle of an […]

May 2017 Favourites

We made it to the middle of the year! I can’t believe it’s June already, and I’m wondering where all the time went. Seems like this year has gone by faster than most, even though I seem to say that at the beginning of every month. We woke up to some very upsetting and disturbing […]

Five Things You Need to Know Before You Watch the ‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot

To say I was excited and extremely hyped up for this reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks franchise is the biggest understatement of the year. I was probably more excited for this than season seven of Game of Thrones, and that’s a ridiculous thing for me to say. I’ve loved Twin Peaks for a very, […]

Thoughts on… Boxing Helena (1993)

Directed by Jennifer Lynch (a familiar film business surname, being David Lynch’s daughter), Boxing Helena (1993) is one of those films that you only really want/need to watch just once. It’s meant to be a romantic mystery thriller with a body horror twist, but the film’s reputation almost precedes itself. Its synopsis is as follows: […]
