Underwater Review

Despite my love for aquatic horror – and my megalohydrothalassophobia – Underwater was a woefully underwhelming attempt at cribbing Alien that just doesn’t work.

Dark Phoenix Review

TL;DR – it ain’t good.

Read on for more about how Dark Phoenix fails its women, especially Storm.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Review

The follow-up to Garreth Edward’s 2014 flick, Godzilla: King of the Monsters brings the likes of Rhodan, King Ghidorah, and Mothra into the mix. So the big question – for those who haven’t already seen it or those who just don’t care (it’s ok, live your truth) – is “does it suck?” The answer? Yes and no.

Yeah, super vague. I know. I’ll explain.

Avengers: Endgame Review

TL;DR – You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll want to watch it again minutes after it’s done. Die-hard fans will be happy, as will the uninitiated masses who are just looking to have a good time.

I promise this is 100% spoiler free! So read with confidence.
