Duo Review: Death Race (1975, 2017)

Death Race 2000 (1975) A product of it’s time, Death Race 2000 is something you cannot replicate today. In the heady time of the year 2000, America has become ruled by a dictatorship, spurred on by a financial crash in 1979, and has developed the Transcontinental Road Race, a motorised blood sport inspired by gladitorial…

Review: Ghost in the Shell (2017) (2D)

People are hating on this movie for the wrong reasons.

But she questions her origins, and how she has no…

Before, he massacred a crime lord’s entire operation because they stole his car and killed his dog, now those in power see Wick as an asset again; out of retirement. Now…

Banter: A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur’s Court

I like the Transformer movies from Michael Bay… Okay, not the second one so much… Or the rampant product placement in the fourth one… But I like them;┬áthere are genuinely worse films out there, and honestly despite where the series went, the first film (just try to deny it) revitalized the franchise and brought in…
