'Justice League' review

Are WHINE+SPACE ready to go ALL IN on the DCEU?

Everything’s still to play for, as we come off an extremely bumpy ride from the prior entries in the DC canon, with huge variation in quality from film to film and, often, scene to scene. So, will ‘Justice League’ right all wrongs from the past? Will the seams be visible from when director Zack Snyder handed over the reigns to writer/director Joss Whedon? Will the film strike a tone that reconciles the dark AF aesthetic of Snyder with the snarky repartee of Whedon?


Find out the answer to all these questions and many more, as we go ALL IN on ‘Justice League’!

The Stephen King Adaptation - 'Carrie' (2013)



It’s time to get Carrie-d away, all over again!

That’s right, for this month’s Stephen King Adaptation Project, we’re going right back to the beginning of the King Kollection and sitting down for a spooktacular look back at the hit 2013 film ‘Carrie’ to ask the question that’s on everyone’s minds - why the hell didn’t this delightful story make its way to the screen before now?!?

'IT' miniseries Part 2 commentary


You can't keep a good clown down!

That's the revelation we're facing this week, as we draw to a close our month-long coverage of the tale of much beloved joker, jester, all-round sillybob: Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Returning to the mean sewers of Derry, we sit down to discuss the second half of the 1990 miniseries adaptation of 'IT'. What follows can be both described as shambolic and delightful, so get ready to go on a journey with us through the cosmos, throwing a wink at The Turtle and attempting to answer the ultimate question - what the ruddy heckers is going on with Big Bill's hair?

'IT' miniseries Part 1 commentary


WHINE+SPACE go back to the well, as we throw off the ghost of all this new fangled #ITmovie claptrap and return to a mouth-wateringly spicy curry - TIM CURRY, that is!

Yes, our look back at various Stephen King adaptations marches on, and after the unreasonably good theatrical adventure earlier this month, we’re casting our gaze over the TV miniseries, slicing it up into two distinct parts. What do we make of the novel-faithful cross-cutting structure? Is The Lovers Gang successfully captured? And who do we pick in 2017’s biggest Clown-Off?

The Stephen King Adaption Project- 'IT (2017)' review

The circus is coming to town!

Yes, the days are long, hot and school is officially out for summer. But WHINE+SPACE aren’t resting on our sun loungers, not one bit - we’re tooling up and heading down into the metaphorical sewers of critical analysis! With us both beholding a brand new adaptation of a book we adore, can this massive, multi-faceted tome make its way to the screen with its soul intact? Can it at least clear the hurdle of the Tim Curry-starring miniseries?


There’s only one way to find out - Hi yo, Silver awayyyyyy!

Twin Peaks revival - ‘Part 16’ review



The penultimate episode of the return of the revival of season 3 is here and it did not disappoint! In fact, you could argue that it delivered ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. But the long awaited return of Special Agent Dale Cooper was very far from the only treat we had in store for us - so strap in as we discuss the satisfyingly lame death of Dickhead Horne, try and divide our Doppelgängers from our Face Removers and also something inconsequential happens with Audrey too

'Twin Peaks' revival- Part 15 review


It was another packed episode of ‘Twin Peaks’ this week, so get ready for WHINE+SPACE to flail about uncontrollably as we try and tackle all the crazy threads running throughout Part 15. How did Phillip Jeffries become a kettle and does he enjoy it? Is Steven tweaking, or just high on life? How adept is Dougie at DIY? Am I Judy?

Find out the answers to all these questions and SO may more - as we discuss Season 3, Part 15!

'Daniel Craig Will Return'


He's ummed. He's ahhhed. But now Dannii Craig has either shat or got off the pot, because he's finally, officially, no really, dropped the official sick knowledge that he will indeed return as The James in the next James Bond Franchise Film. But what took him so long? Who else was in the frame? What kind of seedy deal did Craig strike with the icy Babs Brocoli?

There's only one way to be sure.
