    Prey (2022) Movie Review

    Prey (2022) Movie Review

    I'm latently a big believer that the Predator series is one of the most underappreciated of franchises, but Prey recognises a complete rebirth (after the undervalued Shane Black attempt recently). Instantly the paradigm of dumping the predator in different periods of history has proven a winning move. I had looked up who the spectacularly named Amber Midthunder was in three previous low rent (ish) films, so was not surprised by her winning turn here, I was surprised by this turning into Predator vs The Revenant! And by how amazing it is, from nowhere, one of the films of the year.

    Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) Movie Reveiw

    Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) Movie Reveiw

    The most baffling Marvel universe film yet and a massive signifier of just how badly the wheels have fallen off after Endgame. Now way in the past would the first half of this film have ever been allowed, and the light seems to have slightly dimmed on wonder director, Taika Waititi, after the roaring success of Thor Ragnorak. It's like there is no quality control at all anymore and no one is at the helm. The first half maybe the worst of any Marvel film, its grating, Benny Hill like comedic tone (and completely misguided narration from the director himself) at incongruous odds with the story arcs of Christian Bale and Natalie Portman, plus no one wanted dad-bod Thor at this point. The vastly superior second half, resets everything, and feels like an entirely different director took over.

    Black Midi - Hellfire (2022) Album Review

    Black Midi - Hellfire (2022) Album Review

    Arguably the king pins of the golden rebirth of British indie guitar music, alongside the likes of Black Country, New Road, Squid and Working Men's Club, return for a third album, and again seem like a group who play tennis upside down because they were bored kids not being challenged. Despite initial misgivings about them being too noisy or too frenetic here - there are plenty of oasis of calm, and it maybe their best yet.

    Working Men’s Club - Fear Fear (2022) Album Review

    Working Men’s Club - Fear Fear (2022) Album Review

    The northern English band, one of the guiding light of the golden new wave of British indie, return with a second album. Though still a fine and cohesive record, it perhaps doesn't reach the thrilling, lofty, dynamic heights of either their debut or recent records by their peers.

    Sun’s Signature - Sun’s Signature (2022) Album Review

    Sun’s Signature - Sun’s Signature (2022) Album Review

    Elizabeth Fraser is the greatest British indie singer of all time and the most beautifully expressive British female vocalist this side of Kate Bush, in fact she's in a tiny peer group with Bush and Bjork. She has chosen now, at this darkest of hours to return to grace us with her totally undimmed golden voice. With her partner Damon Reece, they've sculpted a small album of infinite beauty and star spun wonder. Like Galadriel returned from the West to save us. And it really makes you talk that wanky.

    The Grey Man (2022) Movie Review

    The Grey Man (2022) Movie Review

    Once the home of some of the best and most artistic films each year, Netflix has sunk firmly into an annoying paradigm - throw 100-200 million dollars at a cool action project but give it a terrible screenplay and poor director. Here at least the presence of the Russo brothers would appear to allay the latter but to no effect on the former.
