Film Review: Pirates of the Caribbean – Salazar’s Revenge

Two things before we begin: first, I consider Pirates of the Caribbean to be a trilogy, and anything else that has come afterwards is just unnecessary footage that I don’t even want to be bothered with; second, why do film titles have to be different in the UK? I have spent the last few months thinking this movie was called Dead Men Tell No Tales. Get your act together, Disney! Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×6 Review: Extremis

I will admit it: I was wrong. For weeks, I have been proclaiming that I was sure John Simm’s Master was inside the vault, and this sixth episode has confirmed that the person inside was, in fact, Missy -although she is also the Master, so I was sort of right, anyway. This early reveal definitely helps this series get more action, instead of dragging that mystery all the way to the finale. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×5 Review: Oxygen

Am I the only one who thinks Peter Capaldi should stay for at least one more season? He is killing it this year, and he deserves to shine after two series that may not have allowed him to do so -totally not blaming him, but a few scripts that didn’t do any favours to the show. Continue reading

Praise for Better Call Saul’s ‘Chicanery’

It is difficult for a show that already excels every week to have a truly outstanding episode. It happens to Better Call Saul the same way it happened to its predecessor, Breaking Bad. Always great episodes, always flawless, but oh boy, when a top one came along, it made the show even better. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×4 Review: Knock Knock

One of the key aspects of Doctor Who, besides, you know, aliens and such, is mystery. But not any kind of mystery: I’m talking about that spooky plotline that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end (remember Blink?), and that is pretty much what happens on “Knock Knock.” Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×3 Review: Thin Ice

I must admit that my favourite Doctor Who episodes, by far, are always the ones set in the past, in important historical events or that feature historical characters. I love spaceships and whatnot, but give me an episode set in the past and I’m instantly sold. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×2 Review: Smile

There is an aspect of Doctor Who that has always excelled, and that is their use of metaphors. They translate a modern-day issue into a plotline about an alien race, and then, without us even realising it, the show is giving us a lecture on politics, acceptance and tolerance. Continue reading

Doctor Who 10×1 Review: The Pilot

I can’t believe I can finally say this: Doctor Who is back!!! Hasn’t it been ages? It’s been a year and a half since we last had a regular episode – remember when Clara wasn’t the Queen of England yet and wiped the Doctor’s memory? Like I said, ages. Continue reading
