TV Review – Warehouse 13: All the Time in the World

Warehouse 13’s penultimate episode of its 4th season, All the Time in the World, is an interesting watch.

Film Review: This is the End

This is the End tries very boldly to blend two very different styles together. Mad cap humour meets end of the world. Rather like chalk and cheese and this is the main problem the film has.
