Sadly though, this show is ending after 2… Continue reading Top 10 Gravity Falls Episodes

Black Mirror: The Entire History of You Review

So here it is, my long delayed final review of Black Mirror, The Entire History of You. In many respects, this is the ideal episode of Black Mirror to end my reviews with. This is the episode which shows how damaging certain technologies could be on the mundane level, it’s the only episode of Black… Continue reading Black Mirror: The Entire History of You Review

Black Mirror: 15 Million Merits Review

Continuing the reviews of Black Mirror is what I would say is my favourite episode from series 1, 15 Million Merits.

So today is the second part of the Stephen Frears Blair trilogy with The Queen, focusing on Tony Blair’s relationship with Queen Elizabeth the Second.

The Wipers Times Review

Something that I’m constantly surprised at with historical films and TV shows is how few of them focus on World War 1, at least compared to the hundreds that focus on World War 2, along with the fact that the best media interpretations of World War 1 are comedies (the best being Blackadder Goes Forth).… Continue reading The Wipers Times Review
