It Follows

This is our review of It Follows, which Danny F. Santos saw at TIFF 2014 By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Horror films are notoriously hard to get right for me.

Movie Review: CHAPPiE

chappie

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) A Neill Blomkamp film is an odd thing. I'm not entirely sure how to describe them other than absurd, but grounded science fiction with mechs and military hardware set partially in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Focus-2015-Movie

Focus stars Will Smith and Margo Robbie By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I love a good caper film, and it's a shame that not that many get made.

TV Review: Better Call Saul

Saul
