All The World's A Stage

Celtic Horror

WARNING: This Article Contains Spoilers This originally started out as a British Horror article but it was gradually becoming English-heavy. So, I have decided to separate the English from their Celtic neighbours and present you with both a beloved film of mine and those that are completely new to me – but that’s what this …

Before They Were Marvel-ous Heroes

Spider-Man AKA Tom Holland

WARNING: This Article May Contain Spoilers A little fact that you may or may not know in terms of Tom Holland as Spider-Man, specifically when it comes to Avengers: Infinity War, is that the line ‘I don’t want to go. I don’t want to go, Mr. Stark…’ was completely improvised. Now, that scene makes me …

All The World's A Stage

North American Horror

WARNING: This Article Contains Spoilers Now, I know what you’re all going to think when you reach the end of this article is “how can she talk about North American horror and not cover films from the USA?” Well, put it this way – the majority of the horror films we sit and enjoy at …

To Remake or Not To Remake

The Fog 1980 v 2005

WARNING: This Review May Contain Spoilers Here’s to another film from the mind of John Carpenter. This is may be the second time you’ve heard his name but I can promise you it won’t be the last as this isn’t the only one of his films that someone decided needed to be remade…. Use of …

If Music Be The Food Of Love, Act On

Singer to Actor: Ice Cube

WARNING: This Article May Contain Spoilers I’ve never truly been the kind of person that’s into rap music. Yeah, I listen to a bit of Eminem every now and then but honestly, Ice Cube has never made it on to one of my playlists. If it wasn’t for the film Straight Outta Compton, where a …

A Trope By Any Other Name

Death of the Token Minority

WARNING: This Article May Contain Spoilers I’ve used the term ‘lost trope’ because, for all intents and purposes, it is rare to find a film nowadays where the non-white character is killed off first. Obviously you have the outliers like Scream 2 (and a couple of recent films mentioned below) but I think in a …

To Remake or Not To Remake

Rear Window vs Disturbia

WARNING: This Review May Contain Spoilers I’m going to start this by being completely open with you all. I know I usually keep the personally opinion until the end but I went in to this already believing that Disturbia was never going to be as good as Rear Window and I wasn’t disappointed. No, this …

Before They Were Marvel-ous Heroes

Captain America AKA Chris Evans

WARNING: This Article May Contain Spoilers Now, I know what you’re all going to say and that’s that Captain America isn’t the first Marvel hero that Chris Evans has played because he was the original Flame Boy (of my generation anyway). However, Captain America is the more significant role of the two and he made …
