‘Doctor Strange’ Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

It’s getting to that point for Marvel Studios where they must pull out the lesser known heroes to make new franchises, Doctor Strange is one such character. I had no idea who he was but enrolling geek favourite Benedict Cumberbatch and an introduction of magic rather than super powers as the driving impetuous seemed like the right idea. But does …

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

Halloween is that excuse  we use to celebrate all things scary and I thought I would compile a list of what I consider to be the top 20 scary movies. Originally I published this back in 2013 around this same time of year but it’s been a good couple of years for scary movies. For the record, they’re numbered but …

‘Jack Reacher Never Go Back’ Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

Tom Cruise is a bit of a problematic leading man for many people. For that many it has less to do with the quality of his films or his acting in them but much to do with his personal life, a topic a little more salacious and irrelevant than one would suppose. Yet in recent years he has carved himself …

In TV by Steve Magill0 Comments

The dense real estate of movies has been taken over by super heroes and as that real estate grows ever more crowded TV seems like territory ripe for the picking. DC comics have always had a close relationship with TV and has found success from Smallville to The Flash,  Arrow and Supergirl. Marvel began slowly with their Agents of SHIELD …

‘Deepwater Horizon’ Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

There is something about a true story that makes it appealing to a broad audience.  The premise may simply interesting peaking curiosity or it might be the empathy of normal people doing extraordinary things.

‘Blair Witch’ Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

The Blair Witch Project is one of those movies that has an established place in the annals of horror and to a lesser degree in film history. While not the creator of the found footage genre (Cannibal Holocaust probably earns that credit) it did bring it into mainstream use so that we have horror movies like Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield REC …

The things that scare us are often the simplest of things: A creak in an empty house, the dark, isolation, the fear of someone violating our safe places all unnerve us. The movies that scare us however rarely rely on those most ordinary of things rather relying on the supernatural or the truly diabolical evils of the human heart. Don’t …

‘Suicide Squad’ Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

A little confession for you all, I don’t really like writing up movies that are bad. I don’t see my mission as a blogger/critic/ rambling person on the internet as someone who saves you from bad movies. I want to celebrate. In an ideal world, I would just like to write about the movies I love and let this whole …
