FILM REVIEW – ‘THE OLD GUARD’ (2020)

I was intrigued when this was first advertised, a Netflix action blockbuster with Charlize Theron in it based on a Graphic Novel, it seemed that everything was aligning in the film world for a great summer film; in the current craziness and without cinema access, good films have been as hard to find as an…

FILM REVIEW – ‘EXTRACTION’ (2020)
