Picture it. Hollywood executives discuss their next mega money maker and among the melee of buzzwords, margins, and other business bollockry is the go-to selling point for any sequel: make it bigger.

But they didn’t stop there. Continue reading Independence Day Resurgence Review
The latest theatrical effort from Marmite-man Ricky Gervais could easily be written off as a good sketch idea stretched too thin, but there’s a certain charm to its simplicity. Continue reading Special Correspondents Review
