A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) – Renny Harlin

The fourth entry in the Elm Street series has a pretty cool pedigree behind the camera. A young, up and coming director, who would go on to make some solid 90s action films, Renny Harlin helms the film, and the story was developed by Brian Hegeland and William Kotzwinkle, before Heglenand, Jim Wheat and Ken…

Eternals (2021) – Chloe Zhao

The MCU unveils its latest film this week, and Chloe Zhao delivers the most diverse, and inclusive cast and storyline that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen to date. It’s also one of the comics in the Marvel family that I don’t know very well, but that allowed me to go into the film blissfully…

Shadow and Bone (2012) – Leigh Bardugo

My second foray into the Grishaverse was the first one written, Shadow and Bone. And much like Six of Crows, I got swept up pretty damned quick in the story and the characters, and can’t wait to continue to explore the rest of the realm that Bardugo created. In this novel, we are introduced to…
