The ‘Final Destination’ Franchise – Worst to Best

Like the ‘Saw’ franchise, from 2000 to 2011, Final Destination became a cinematic tradition. Released every few years, the series hooked audiences in with the promise of ridiculously gory and over-the-top deaths. But it did this with a surprisingly consistent approach, establishing and updating it’s strict set of in-world rules and building a impressively rich mythos. And also someone gets their guts pulled out of their arsehole.

The Walking Dead – ‘Diverged’ Review

This week sees the latest in the series of pandemic episodes for The Walking Dead, and this is the one that perhaps demonstrates the limitations enforced on the show by a global pandemic in which close contact is generally considered a bad idea.

Doctor Who – The Specials (2008–2010) Rewatch and Review

After the end of series four it was official, David Tennant would be leaving the show, along with showrunner and mastermind behind its revival, Russell T. Davies. To give the production team enough time to prepare for the new series, 2009 didn’t have a full series of the show. Instead, we got five specials across the year, ending with David Tennant’s departure. Let’s have a look at each of these in turn.

Doctor Who – Series 4 Rewatch and Review

There’s an argument for the fourth series of Doctor Who being the revival’s strongest. The show had more than found its footing by this point and this series is full of interesting episodes and ideas. On top of that, it has the biggest finale the show has ever done and possibly the best companion in Catherine Tate’s Donna Noble. 2008 was a very good year to be a Doctor Who fan.

The Stand (2020) Review

The reaction to the recent adaptation of The Stand has been mixed. On one hand, I understand the critics who said they found the show uneven, in terms of both tone and performances. But on the other, as a huge fan of the show, I’m left to wonder; what did anyone expect?

The show is bizarre and awkward at times, but so was the book. As an adaptation of one of the weirdest books of all time, The Stand does a damn good job capturing that “Stephen King feeling” that so many other adaptations fail at.

Doctor Who – Series 2 Rewatch and Review

This series marks the first proper appearance of David Tennant’s incarnation of The Doctor.

For fans of a certain age, Tennant will always be the best and most recognisable actor in the role. Eccleston perhaps didn’t stick around long enough, and for many, Matt Smith just wasn’t the same. David Tennant is The Doctor. And after watching this, his first series, you can see why he became the fan favourite.

‘Insidious’ – Worst to Best

After jumping into the ‘Saw’ franchise amid the country-wide lockdown, we decided to follow it up with James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s other franchise, ‘Insidious’.

Unlike ‘Saw’, there’s no bad entry, so ranking these were much more difficult. But here’s my list! Let me know what you think.
