    Years and Years

    ★★★★★

    Russell T Davis returns to knock it out once more with this wonderful future-shock family drama. Up there as one of the best television offering of the year so far.

    Chernobyl

    ★★★★★

    Quite simply, with out any degree of hyperbole, one of the greatest mini-series of modern times.
    Phenomenal performances from a truly exceptional ensemble cast. Taut and tense writing that truly hammers home the abject horror of the event and its potential impact on the world had it not have been for the sacrifice of the brave men & women who tirelessly and selflessly laid their lives on the line for the greater good. Remarkable and breathtaking television.

    The Favourite

    ★★★★★

    The Favourite boasts  precision direction, cinematography to frickin die for and a trio of lead actors who deserved every single plaudit and ounce of praised heaped upon them for their role in this production. It is no accident that Olivia Coleman is cast as  Queen Anne because the woman rules, plain and simple. Every role she plays, she knocks it out the park just a little further than before and she is only going to get better which is all the more exciting a prospect.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★

    There are many things that make The avid movie fan excited and the prospect of a new Cohen Brothers picture is right up there in my estimation. This time around, the Cohens are trying their hand at a notoriously tricky proposition for any director, an anthology. Anthologies as a whole can be decidedly hit & miss affairs, for every great story you can have 2 or 3 duds, how does The Ballad of Buster Scruggs fare?
