by Phil Wheat

Stars: Brendan Byrne, Leoni Leaver, Rebecca Callander, Bob Clark | Written and Directed by Dane Millerd There’s not a more overwrought and overused genre trope as the found footage format, at least in terms of direct to DVD movies, with many film makers using the format in place of having a decent story.

‘Sons of Anarchy 7×11: Suits of Woe’ Review

by Nathan Smith

I gave up on writing about Sons of Anarchy because, frankly, I felt I covered everything in my advance review.
