Game of Thrones: The Bells (S8 Ep5)

Game of Thrones returned to screens worldwide in its penultimate episode this week, and it did not take any prisoners. Once again having heavily divided opinion in the fandom (and receiving the lowest ever rating for GoT on Rotten Tomatoes along the way), there is no disputing the fact that this episode saw some major…

Game of Thrones: The Last of the Starks (S8 Ep4)

Deadpool 2 (****)

With a group of misfit superheroes banded together by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) to form X-Force, the film follows their mission to stop Russel, aka ‘Fire Fist’, before it is too late for the people of the future.
