Testees

I’ve stated before that being a film and TV reviewer I get to see films and programmes that normally I would never have had the chance to see. So when I was offered the chance to review a Canadian comedy show from 2008 I thought ‘why not’. It was a one season only show so…

I love a good documentary, and as filmmakers, my brother and I are right now developing our own first feature length documentary. So, as part of my research, I’ve been watching a lot more of them and when I was looking through my choice of DVD’s to review, I saw Sounds Like Teen Spirit pop…

The first Maze Runner film came out last year, and for me was a surprise package. I had seen most of the teen novel adaption’s over the years, with some being good, others ok, and some just plain bad. This films trailer looked like nothing special, but when I actually saw it I was hugely…
