In 1990 the first adaptation of It was released to the small screen. It wasn’t very well received at the time, but don’t worry it’s now a cult classic and it’s considered to be one of the best adaptations of Stephen King’s books. The 1990 It was a two part special, which had the length … Continue reading The It movies
Black Mirror is one of my favourite TV shows in recent memory. Netflix offers a good variety of shows for binge watching but no show on the platform comes close to the complex and disturbing themes that Black Mirror tackles. (Except maybe BoJack Horseman, but that's a story for another day.) I've always wanted to … Continue reading My Ranking of the First 20 Episodes of Black Mirror
I have some advice for anyone reading this review. Don’t ever be excited for anything, ever! Especially with movies that show alot of potential like Glass, The Lego Movie 2, Us, Detective Pikachu, John Wick 3 and just recently Brightburn. So if you’re looking forward to anything, just don’t, or otherwise you might end up a … Continue reading Brightburn – a disappointment
The last horror movie for this month is Us. Jordan Peele is back with another weird and unique horror flick that will definitely make you think.

Since it's the month of fear we're … Continue reading The BC’s Netflix Watch-a-thon: October 2018 (Halloween Special)
October starts off terribly with Marvel’s, I mean Sony’s, Venom. The best way to describe this movie is like when a little baby pushes off a hot bowl of spaghetti onto your very expensive carpet and what are you left with. So if you didn’t know because you once shared the same rock as me … Continue reading Venom is neither bad nor good, but a combination of both!

The Meg is one of … Continue reading The Meg is a bad movie disguised as an average one.
