June 25, 2015

It’s almost midnight as I arrive at the Ace Hotel, jumping out of a taxi, having flown into Newark Airport on the other side of the Hudson. I walk past someone taking a selfie with a man who I assume is famous; he is ushered into a car moments later (then again, with Uber, who […]

NBC release first trailer for Heroes: Reborn, and it features some familiar faces

June 25, 2015

The first season of Heroes is undeniable. It was a huge hit for NBC back when well-produced superhero TV franchises weren’t really as common as they are today. Somewhere along the line, quality waned and the once iconic show was drowned by it’s own ambitions somewhere between Mohinder’s skin peeling off and the show’s very […]

DVD Review: Broadchurch The Complete Second Season (UK, 2015)

June 25, 2015

The first series of Broadchurch was a concise, emotionally-charged thriller that was a huge success both in the United Kingdom and abroad. However, with such a neat ending (the killer caught, Danny’s funeral finally allowed to take place), it was a bit of a headscratcher as to how creator Chris Chibnall would structure series two: […]

DVD Review: Jupiter Ascending (M) (USA/Australia, 2015)

Film Review: Ted 2 (MA15+) (USA, 2015)

June 25, 2015

I didn’t like 2012’s Ted. The jokes were as uninspired as the ridiculous plot, relying on the same formula that makes Family Guy a tedious watch and putting too much faith in shots of a teddy bear being crude and smoking bongs being funny. That said, I couldn’t stop laughing during Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 […]
