  • Who are we supposed to side with on Game of Thrones?

    Game of Thrones‘ seventh season has been nothing short of extraordinary. The intricacies, tangled subplots and huge cast of characters that once seemed so overwhelming have simmered into a full-scale war.

    For years we’ve been following Daenerys Targaryen as she rose up from literal ashes, with feeble dragon eggs in hand, to witnessing her shock and awe assault on Westeros. We’ve waited…

    So Far…

    Manchester by the Sea

    A really good drama should move and compel the viewer in equal measure and it’s something that Kenneth Lonergen’s Manchester by the Sea offers in abundance. Bringing out a career best performance from Casey Affleck, this intelligent, harrowing affair is one of the best in recent years, never mind this year.

  • Saying Goodbye to "The Leftovers"

    The Leftovers has been a journey unlike anything else we’ve seen on television. It’s not just a stellar HBO drama steeped in otherworldly, pitch black fantasy, but also a meditation on life, death and loss.

    Last Sunday’s penultimate episode “The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)” saw Kevin’s (Justin Theroux) seemingly final trip to the afterlife, or is it a…

    So Far…

    Toni Erdmann

    Germans are not particularly renowned for their comedies, but this year, they’ve arguably presented the very best in the genre. This Maren Ade, Oscar-nominated movie does what most timeless comedies do – combine the playful nature of the film with a somewhat tragic undercurrent, as while this film will undoubtedly have you in stitches – it may just make you…

  • Why Logan is the most important superhero movie of our time

    **Do not read on if you haven’t watched Logan. Massive spoilers ahead!**

    There are moments in Logan that rip and tear through the audience’s ears like a rabid animal, embodying its titular character in true form. With a runtime that exceeds two hours and a story so hardboiled and mature it feels as if the characters you have been holding close for decades are literally vanishing before your…

Turns out the team (Oddest of the Odd) weren’t quite done yet with their adaptation, and have now returned with part 2, which you can watch above.
