Spree (2020, USA) Review

Spree stars Joe Keery as Kurt Kunkle, an obsessed boy who wishes to be a popular social media influencer like his idols Bobby Basecamp and Jesse Adams. The only problem is he has a limited audience watching his channel as he is an excruciatingly dull person. He has tried everything to get noticed on YouTube, like playing video games, promoting shoes, and doing tutorials. But none of those are helping him in getting his foot through the social media door.

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020, Canada) Review

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020, Canada) Review

Special effects in the style of 1990s TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are what attracted me to PG: Psycho Goreman. Within the first few minutes, and throughout PG, I had spotted several tributes to Power Rangers, from the soundtrack to the concept of a villain trapped underground, freed unwittingly, to the Planetary Alliance. That’s not to say PG wasn’t an original film, as Mimi’s family, and Mimi in general, are unusual characters.

Mimi is a spoilt brat who obtains a gemstone that can control the ultimate intergalactic supervillain, Psycho Goreman.
