    Oxygen (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Oxygen (Netflix) Movie Review

    Picking up where Biohazard left off, Resident Evil Village builds upon this very welcome return to form, dipping back into the classics from this now 25-year-old series to add a little more action to its survival-horror origins.

    Given a brief theatrical - and even IMAX - release back last autumn, Honest Thief makes its home debut as an Amazon Original, and is another harmlessly entertaining Neeson action thriller.

    Mortal Kombat (2021) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Mortal Kombat (2021) Movie Review
    Reportedly proving another hit for HBO Max, the modestly budgeted reboot of Mortal Kombat is equally modestly dumb fun, but really could have done with paying closer attention to the excellent animation, Scorpion's Revenge.

    by Cas Harlow
    The Virtuoso Movie Review
