Oblivion – Film Review

  So the man who inspires love or hate in the masses is back with his latest sci-fi blockbuster. Oblivion starts well, setting the scene with sweeping shots of a post apocalyptic earth, populated by our hero and his partner.

LOUIS CK: ONE NIGHT IN HAMMERSMITH March 2013

First of all, this isn’t a normal show, so suck a bag of dicks if it deserves a normal review. Picture the venue you’ve been going to for years, not religiously, just now and again to see the act or band you’ve wanted to see for a long time. It’s now a few months since you sat in your dressing gown click-click-clicking away at the refresh-pages, ‘captcha’ verifications, wrong passwords and (surely) fair handling fees that has now become the standard routine of online ticket chasing.
