Fleabag – “The complex comedy which sticks in your mind for years”

It is difficult to envision that a comedy-drama can stick in your mind and stand out amongst the plethora of content shovelled out today, but ‘Fleabag’ does, and it does it tremendously.

Pistol: “A Biopic that Focused More on The Music and Less on the Band’s Infamous Chaos”

Hyper-sexual, unrehearsed, and lasting a mere three years, the Sex Pistols created an anarchistic legacy that director Danny Boyle crammed into a skewed six-part violently poignant limited series. The Sex Pistols fashioned the seventies music industry with their revolutionary ways of mayhem; however, the series tends to shy away from fully showcasing the unruliness of the late band.  Guitarist, Steve Jones (Toby Wallace) claimed, ‘we’re … Continue reading Pistol: “A Biopic that Focused More on The Music and Less on the Band’s Infamous Chaos”

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent: “A Unique Turn of Events”

A movie no one knew they needed, where the National Treasure star thrives as he play the role of Nicolas Cage.
