by Amelia Nancy Harvey Guy (Ryan Reynolds) wakes up and lives the same mundane day over and over again. He has a closet filled with blue shirts and brown slacks, drinks the same coffee, has the same conversation with his buddy called Buddy (Lil Rel Howery), and deals with a robbery at his job as a bank teller. It’s clear that Guy’s life is somehow … Continue reading Free Guy – Review
by Sarah Cook Back in 2017, The Hitman’s Bodyguard teased us with the great pairing of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Through great marketing, the whole premise looked like a laugh riot.

Have you ever wondered how many “leaked” snippets of films are actually leaked and how many are just claimed to be leaks to help build word of mouth and let people think that they’re being given an illicit peek at an upcoming film? I do. This, alongside Deadpool’s love of meta-humour suggests that this particular leak is less an accident or one person out to … Continue reading Deadpool 2 – Brand New Teaser!
