QUICK REVIEW: Tom and Jerry

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, how’s it going? So earlier this week I had the misfortune of watching the latest film adaptation of Tom and Jerry and now I am here to share my pain with you through a review via my podcast聽Film Focus.

In episode 116 of Film Focus, I review for one of the worst films I’ve watched for a while; Tom and Jerry. Now I’ve never been the biggest fan of the OG Tom and Jerry cartoons, it was like one of those cartoons you watched in between your favourites or when nothing else was on. That being said, when it was good, it was really fun and watched a lot of it in my childhood. I even watched that animated film from 1992 on TV numerous times, and while it’s not a great film by any means, it does have its quirks. So I know what the source material is, and this film… Is not the one. It does a massive disservice to the original cartoons. So how bad is this film? Well, check out this episode to find out!

Anyway here鈥檚 the review:

PODCAST: Disturbing Films

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, I’ve returned with a topic I have wanted to talk about for a while now and it relates to the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot coming out in March 2021. And I’ll be sharing my thoughts via聽my podcast Film Focus.

On episode 103 of Film Focus, I discuss disturbing films alongside my newest guest and friend Ross. Each of us has 4 films which we find disturbing in a specific way and as we discuss them, we also link each film with a unified theme including:

  • Films that are tough to watch but worth watching
  • Feelin bad for the characters
  • Good atmosphere
  • A bold introduction

The films we’ll be discussing are The Nightingale, Perfect Blue, Requiem for a Dream, Climax, Annihilation, Seven, Don’t Look Now and Our Evil. So join us on a casual discussion of these troubling yet entertaining films. Oh and be aware that we’ll essentially be talking spoilers for all of the films involved to varying levels. That being said Annihilation and Seven were the films we talked very specific spoilers and they were at 51:05 and 1:01:02.

Here’s the episode:

Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!
