This Is Why ‘Love Island’ USA Is a Big Ol’ Flop

29th July 2019

I had very high expectations for the American version of Love Island. I was truly ready to blow off all of my weeknight responsibilities (e.g., washing my hair, shaving my legs) to watch it daily. Unfortch, I hardly lasted a week before I decided that it’s totally not worth the commitment, and that the show probably won’t become the cultural phenomenon that it is in the UK anytime soon. In…

Hollywood is quietly using AI to help decide which movies to make

29th May 2019

The film world is full of intriguing what-ifs. Will Smith famously turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix. Nicolas Cage was cast as the lead in Tim Burton’s Superman Lives, but he only had time to try on the costume before the film was canned.

Following a busy week full of potential (and legitimate) blockbusters, Netflix has a selection full of question marks this week, along with a couple of familiar properties. Once again, everything coming to the streaming service this week is an original film or series, but the only one that I recognized was Chef’s Table, which returns for Volume 6. Of the five original films launching this week, Paddleton was the one…

The 9 best Netflix shows you’ve never heard of

9th January 2019

The sheer volume of new and original content that hits Netflix every month is absolutely staggering. To be quite honest, it’s practically impossible to keep up with all of the new content that arrives on Netflix every month unless you’re watching TV 24/7. As a prime example, this month alone will see Netflix debut 38 new original TV series and movies. With Netflix literally spending billions on developing new content…
