    Free Fire Blu-ray Review

    Wednesday, August 9, 2017

    In the interests of full disclosure, I should say that if Ben Wheatley were to suddenly announce his plans to make a two-hour documentary about the effect of air on a freshly-applied coat of emulsion, I would most likely be first in line for tickets.

    Spider-man: Homecoming is about as apt a name as you’re ever likely to get, seeing as Peter Parker has spent almost 20 years playing away from home with that technological hussy, Sony.
