Film Review: Behind the Walls

tl;dr: a film that tries too hard to be unique and ends up being uninspired and uninteresting. DNF’d at 30 minutes. Contains spoilers (duh).

Book Review: Bec by Darren Shan

Bec is yet another new character in the Demonata series, a refreshing female significant character in the exceedingly male-dominated world so far, although the female numbers remain disappointingly low in Book 4 despite this. We’re set in Ancient Ireland, a world very different to the pseudo-medieval generically European I’m used to so I’m loving the…

Currently Watching: Breaking Bad (Part 2)

End of Season 2. A.K.A. The season where everyone makes questionable decisions at best, downright dumb ones at worst. I’m not too sure where to stand with Jesse. My heart melted when he expresses delight at Walter’s remission diagnosis. Although he probably is one of the dumbest characters on the show, he does genuinely have a…

Film Review: Jurassic World

Dinosaurs are cool. Dinosaurs are awesome. Jurassic Park was a good portion of my childhood, so this new film is going to be amazing. Right? If disbelief is worth £1 per “WTF” moment I might be stinking rich, but eh, I enjoyed it. Contains spoilers, duh.

Film Review: Escape Plan

Oooh so it’s been a while since I watched thrillers, having had a constant stream of fantasy and horrors recently. This was my partner’s suggestion after watching half of Jurassic World and getting bored. Starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, this film was guaranteed to be filled with action and poor enunciation — and I…

Film Review: The Roommate

The premise of the story is nothing new. Stalker acting as antagonist? Check. Antagonist pretending to be a friend? Check. Creepy friend saying words that could have alternate meanings but protagonist is too dense to realise? Check. Increasingly psychotic episodes in an attempt to unnerve the viewer? Check. Bad guy gets killed in the end?…
