Recap & Review: ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 Episode 5: ‘The Jedi’; Ahsoka Tano, I presume.

Ahsoka Tano

This weeks episode of This he Mandalorian has been one of the most anticipated of the entire season for one reason, and one reason only: it is the live-action debut of Ahsoka Tano, former Jedi and Padawan to Anakin Skywalker.

Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway


I’ve finally seen all of Daredevil, the first of Marvel’s (current) 5 Netflix shows. So here’s a quick rundown of what I thought of all 13 episodes. TL;DR version? I liked it, but I didn’t love it.

So Danny Boyle made a new film, and in case you had any doubt here’s a trailer.

I love that this trailer references Shallow Grave, a film that appears to be simiilarly in the “people trying to screw each other over whilst being slightly crazy” genre. If anyone can spin that yarn it’s Danny Boyle. That it’s full of great actors doesn’t exactly hurt either.

I still wish I’d known about this before I’d written my ‘[most anticipated of the year](’ post.

Trailer: Trance Red Band Trailer


If I’d known about Trance at the beginning of the year there’s a pretty good chance it would have been on my [most anticipated list][ma]. This is a red band trailer so it’s not exactly safe for work, but it’s a very good trailer.

I love Danny Boyle. He’s incredibly adept at pulling off completely freaky imagery. Based on this trailer I seriously can’t wait to see this movie.
