REVIEW: Patrick Melrose (2018 – Mini-Series)

Release Poster – Showtime

The following is a review of Patrick Melrose — A British-American Mini-Series.

Benedict Cumberbatch has made himself into a star. He is the kind of actor who has gotten himself a devoted fanbase that stretches to the ends of the earth, which, I think, is even a surprise to him. BBC’s Sherlock was, obviously, his breakthrough series, and it will probably stay as the piece of content for which he receives the most love from fans, even though he now has played a mythical dragon in The Hobbit-films and a fan-favorite hero in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

REVIEW: The Tale (2018)

Release Poster – HBO Films

The following is a review of The Tale — Directed by Jennifer Fox.

When Jennifer Fox was a thirteen year old girl, she had what she for the longest time would always refer to as her ‘first relationship.’ It was with an older man, she would explain. She had much love for him, she would claim. She had made use of that experience to get a good grade in English class, she would explain.
