Profile: As opposed to his over-the-top and loud predecessor, the Third Doctor was a reminiscent of a young, goofy scientist. During his self-imposed exile on Earth, he was aided by UNIT, a military force who defended the Earth from alien attack. 259 more words

A True Jarmusch Romance: Only Lovers Left Alive

Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive finds originality in its approach to the now-strained genre, the vampire film that for so long has initially utilised to spook the vulnerable audiences, and later on to romanticise their existence, capturing the hearts of the frail and desperate hearts; complexity could easily be lost from such a genre, especially when under the hands of a more simple filmmaker, hoping to exploit the rise of their trend rather than to be passionately driven and to create something ground-breaking. 703 more words

Humans - Season 1 (2015)

Dave’s 3-Word Review:
No, they robots!

Either you like science fiction or you don’t. If you don’t, then don’t even bother with Humans. Humans is as science fiction as it gets, taking serious nods from the god of sci-fi himself, Isaac Asimov. 482 more words
