Outside of the first two films in Edgar Wright's so-called Cornetto Trilogy, Simon Pegg's film career has probably seen more misses than hits. He recently redeemed his reputation with roles in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and the romantic comedy Man Up, although the latter's success was due more to the superb chemistry he Continue reading

Initially I had low expectations for this film, as the trailer made it seem like a low budget B-grade horror film and a throwback to 80s cinema and the early days of Peter Continue reading
