    by Phil Hinton

    Love and Monsters (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Love and Monsters (Netflix) Movie Review
    Coming in at an appropriate time, Netflix’s giant bug-infested rom-com spreads its hopeful message about getting out there and starting to live life again. Which makes it a shame that it feels like an automatic painting-by-numbers machine.

    The Reckoning (Shudder) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The Reckoning (Shudder) Movie Review
    Neil "The Descent" Marshall's latest finally lands on UK shores soon as a Shudder exclusive and in the meantime as a general digital purchase and, either way, it suffers from feeling like a pretty cheap and amateurish effort.

    Fanny Lye Deliver'd 4K Blu-ray Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Fanny Lye Deliver'd 4K Blu-ray Review
    Writer/director (and composer, sound designer and editor) Thomas Clay's labour of love, Fanny Lye, treads that fine line between accomplished and indulgent, taking the best part of 5 years to see the light of day, as possibly one of the least likely 4K Limited Edition releases.

    Palm Springs (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Palm Springs (Amazon) Movie Review
    Released on Hulu in the US in the middle of last year to all around acclaim, Palm Springs is the latest in a recent spate of “It’s Groundhog Day but…” movies. But Andy Samberg and company easily manage to keep the idea fresh enough to be fun.

    Outriders Review (Xbox One)
    It’s had its share of tech issues, but this RPG shooter-looter takes inspiration from the classics to deliver some of the best fun-and-gun action around. Outriders is great on your own, but even better with friends.

    Chaos Walking Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Chaos Walking Movie Review
    Doug "Edge of Tomorrow" Liman's 2017-shot adaptation of the Young Adult sci-fi book series is a startling exercise in missed opportunities and wasted potential, which doesn't even have the same visual opulence of misfires like Jupiter Ascending.
