A brilliant finale, filled to the brim with great acting and emotion 0

So that happened.Before this season began I was dreading it; following ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’, I believed that season 10 was going to be terrible. In retrospect, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Call me hyped up for writing this sentence 13 minutes after ‘The Doctor Falls’ aired, but this was the best season of the modern era, and arguably the best episode of Who I’ve ever watched.Let’s start off with the direction- for those of you who don&rsqu...

An enjoyable episode weighed down by out of place characters and confusing technical decisions 0

So, I’ll just start this off by saying that the episode surpassed my expectations. That’s not to say that I thought it’d be one of the worst of all time, but when the writer of an episode is responsible for their last one giving someone a crisis of faith (in this case Mark Gatiss’ Sleep No More making me question my now once-more strong faith) one tends to be rather pessimistic. In all honesty, if this season had been mediocre instead of 7-8+ I would’ve probably ski...

A shining example of what the DCEU could be 0

Following the controversial history of the DC expanded universe, Wonder Woman is a shining example of what the franchise could and should be. It is, simply, a breath of fresh air.For one thing, the cinematography is amazing. The director Patty Jenkins and cinematographer Matthew Jensen proved to be truly formidable in this area, not just in the brilliant large scale battles but also in the more confined, personal moments. This is a very emotional film, and the direction of the actors, camera and...

Such an intriguing concept, which somehow exceeds expectations and delivers a masterful epic 0

What an episode!“The Pyramid at the End of the World”- a title which matches the impact and magnitude of the episode perfectly. Such a conflicting pair -antiquated structures and far of inevitabilities- that really shouldn’t work; such a wacky and impossible combination, that exceeds my own expectations and delivers an intriguing and masterful epic.Let’s get the obvious out of the way: the acting was great.Capaldi and Mackie are, as I’ve said probably said before, p...

An utterly stunning and terrifying episode 0

This was an utterly stunning episode. The atmosphere, the acting, the direction, the dialogue, all of these aspects combined into one seamless, masterful classic. All the elements just seemed to fit together as smoothly as if they were pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, and this -coupled with the amazing threat of the antagonists- kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time and left me shaken and in awe at the masterpiece before me.Supporting the episode was the talented band of side characters/red-s...

A masterful, heart-warming issue 0

Following on from The Flash 21, this issue is quite frankly magnificent. Firstly, the scope of matters is perfectly encapsulated. You believe the stakes, and you believe what the characters are saying and doing. Each and every figure in the comic has their own distinct voice, and this makes some key scenes all the more impactful. Not only does the writing contribute to cementing these pre-established voices and characters, but the art does as well.While reading the issue, it's easy to get lost i...

An outstanding episode technically and a great episode for the characters 0

This was, without a doubt, my favourite episode of the season so far. To begin, the acting was phenomenal. Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and Pearl Mackie’s Bill have astounding chemistry and screen presence, both profiting from each other’s dynamic in some magnificent cycle of ever increasing talent. Both of them are capable of expressing every single one of their respective characters’ thoughts and feelings through expression alone, and this is multiplied once they start speaki...

A great foundation for a new season 0

As much as I wish that I could say that I was optimistic about this episode, I have to admit it was the exact opposite. I was dreading this episode, preparing myself for my already abysmal expectations to not be met by a wide margin.Thankfully, I doubt that I ever could have expected this episode to be this good!Firstly, let’s examine the performances: Peter Capaldi is a great actor- he has proven himself to be a great incarnation with the Doctor, always making the most of what he’s...

A great introduction to a new Doctor, supported by a great cast and crew 0

Deep Breath perfectly reunites the audience with the scope, whimsy and sheer feeling of the show from the first shot. Such an opening scene sets a tone that is capitalised on, and is not taken for granted. The 12th Doctor is promised to be a unique interpretation, and Peter Capaldi's acting is all you could have asked for from a first episode.The foundation of this character is set, allowing for further episodes to explore him and give depth to a version of the character viewers have came to kno...

A fantastic beginning to a fantastic franchise 0

The following is a review of the book, yet it also applies to the movie adaptation.What is there to say that hasn’t already been said about Harry Potter? The characters are likeable, the plots are simultaneously complex and basic, the themes are inspiring and everything melds into one seamless, almost flawless narrative.Every single main character is given a firm, compelling foundation, the quality of which would leave anyone desperate to see these individuals again, all of whom are so r...
