MICHAEL’S FAVOURITE FILMS

Welcome back to another edition of my favourite fivethreeninety series to date. This is the final edition in this series for the time being – think of it like a season finale in a television show: there’s more to come, but you’re going to have to wait for it a little bit. To send us […]

AMERICAN PIE

Tonight on films I should have seen, I’m watching a film I always thought was wildly out of my interests: American Pie.

STRANGER THINGS 3

My favourite currently-airing show is without a moment of doubt, Stranger Things. The first season of the now infamous show created by the Duffer Brothers was released on Netflix back in the summer of 2016, with a second season following in October of 2017.

THE CURRENT WAR

This week in the cinema, we have a good old period drama. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Michael Mitnick, this Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon-starring biopic chronicles the race between electricity founders Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse in the late 1800s, to determine whose electrical method would bring light to the modern world.
