  • Lianne- Film Review

    Lianne (2022)- Well done indie Canadian horror film where influencer Erin is convinced by her followers to stay alone in a haunted house to raise money for the fight against cancer after her stepsister, Lianne’s death.The “gimmick” here is that she’s broadcasting live throughout the film and narrating the tale as it’s happening.

    As I don’t believe in the 5,000 word overwrought reviews of pay per views let’s just do the bullet points of the good, bad and ugly of AEW Full Gear 2022 (and AEW in general). The Good AEW has as great a crew of wrestlers as any promotion in the history of wrestling. They have […]

  • Concert Review- Van Morrison & Tom Jones Forest Hills Stadium 9/10/22-

    It was ageing icons night at Forest Hills Stadium.When 82-year-old legend Tom Jones limped to the stage, sat in a chair, and sang songs about old age, death, and what a wonderful life he’s had, this wasn’t Las Vegas era Tom Jones, but it certainly packed a punch.
