‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch, Olwen Kelly, Ophelia Lovibond | Written by Ian Goldberg, Richard Naing | Directed by Andre Ovredal Horror is a genre that relies on word of mouth when it comes to finding the good films. We tend to get the big Hollywood releases that are fairly generic with their scares, then […]

‘Doctor Who 10×11: World Enough and Time’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you know that Missy (Michelle Gomez) and The Master (John Simm) are going to meet in this episode (no, not a spoiler) you know that there is going to be some timey wimey shenanigans going on. In this episode of Doctor Who that is exactly what we get, with an equal measure of déjà […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×07′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Twin Peaks so far has been moving at a steady pace, welcoming us back to the world of Twin Peaks, and keeping us questioning when things would really get moving.

‘Doctor Who 10×10: The Eaters of Light’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Knowing what is coming up in Doctor Who may have stolen some of the limelight off The Eaters of Light, but that doesn’t mean that it is a bad episode. If anything, this episode is about teaching The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) that he can’t always be the hero, sometimes he has to take a step […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is still stuck in Dougie, that doesn’t mean that Twin Peaks can’t push a few buttons for fans. This week has a definite feel of Fire Walk with Me as well as a very interesting introduction to a returning, but until now unseen character that fans have been dying to […]

‘Doctor Who 10×09: Empress of Mars’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who has been on quite a roll this season, and there was bound to be an episode that came along that was a bit of a filler. Empress of Mars feels to be that filler episode, and what we are given is a story that is simple, okay. After seeing an unexpected message on […]

‘Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of movie history, you often read about actors and directors who had their obsessions. For Steve McQueen, his obsession was with speed, and the movie Le Mans. In the new documentary Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans we get to look behind the movie and hear the story of […]

‘Zheros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If, like me, you loved beat’em ups and miss the days of games like Final Fight and Streets of Rage – where the focus was to just beat up the bad guys and have some fun – well Zheros is a fairly generic throwback to that same idea of hitting things till they blow up, […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×05′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While it is so good to have Twin Peaks back, it is even better to have a weekly dose of David Lynch directed goodness. This week’s episode may test people’s patience if they are looking for answers, but for those who want a good old slice of Twin Peaks, this is exactly what they get. […]

‘Doctor Who 10×08: The Lie of the Land’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When politics inspires a show like Doctor Who, we tend to see the extremes of what can happen. This week’s episode handles the nature of fascism, and that ever popular topic of fake news. What could go wrong? With Earth now under the control of The Monks, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) go […]

‘The Legacy: Season Three’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When watching dramas that come out of Europe, we tend to think that we’ll get some good Nordic Noir where there is plenty of murder and mystery. The Legacy though is a Danish family drama with no actual murder at all (well to be fair there is a death)… When Hannah (Karla Løkke) tragically dies while […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

This episode is the one we’ve been waiting for, with Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) coming face to face with Gordon Cole (David Lynch) and Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer). Typically for Twin Peaks though, nothing is as it seems. With Agent Cooper playing happy families as Dougie Jones, the other “Coop” faces his old boss and Albert. […]
