Forget Endgame, This is the Superhero Story we Need – Editor Wyatt Smith Talks on ‘Harriet’ (Exclusive TIFF 2019 Interview)

With the countless amount of historical-figure biopics that are churned out each year, It’s baffling to think that the story of Harriet Tubman is only now being immortalised with a film adaptation.

Doctor Sleep review – More King than Kubrick, Nostalgic, Unforgettable and Nightmare-Inducing

The world shines again. Doctor Sleep is a neat-mix of a sequel and adaptation to Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece The Shining and Stephen King's Doctor Sleep novel. Mike Flanagan directs a film that is his own and never attempts to do Kubrick, it is more so King than Kubrick - swaying rather heavily to the supernatural…

‘Parasite’ Review – Yes, It’s Really That Good
