Extraction (2020) Review

Netflix has a chequered past when it comes to their ‘original’ programming. For every standout like ‘Okja’, ‘Dolemite is my Name’, or ‘The Irishman’, there’s a bucket load of terrible films like ‘The Ridiculous 6’ or ‘The Outsider’ or ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’.

‘Extraction’ falls somewhere in the middle in terms of quality – but in terms of enjoyment it’s one of the best film’s Netflix currently has.

The Expanse – Season 1 Review

Going into The Expanse, I knew very little about it. I knew it was based on the book series by James S. A. Corey (the pen name of co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) and I knew it was very well received by critics and fans alike.

The thing that grabbed me most about it, however, was the love people seemed to have for the show, even bringing it back from the brink of cancellation when SYFY decided to prematurely end the show’s run. Having now binged the first season in a couple of days I can safely say I am all in on The Expanse too.

Doctor Who – “Ascension of The Cybermen” Review

The penultimate episode of season 12 of Doctor Who may have somehow left us with more questions than answers as we hurtle into next weeks finale, but it was a fantastic episode all the same.

Doctor Who – ‘Spyfall: Part One’ Review

Doctor Who is back with a bang! After a disappointing last season (but a fantastic Jodie Whittaker performance) the show returns with all the fantastic elements of the previous season (Whittaker, a higher budget, great scripts, brilliant music, Bradley Walsh) and seemingly sets a course to correct what the last season lacked. There’s more stuff for Yaz to do, more variety and – most importantly – more classic Who stuff.
