  • American Psycho: Remember When Batman Murdered the Joker With an Axe?

    American Psycho: Remember When Batman Murdered the Joker With an Axe?

    I couldn’t think of a clever title for this one, sorry guys. I’m not usually much a fan for horror or slasher movies. There are a few exceptions, namely the Alien movies (Alien is a slasher, right? Or did I just start an argument?), but generally I’m not into movies all about serial killers. Not […]

    The Lion King (1994): Hamlet, Furry Edition

    More than a few animated classics have been ‘remade’ in the last few years. And by remade, I mean ‘butchered by live-action adaptations’.
