April 2015 in Review

This month was dominated by binge-watches of Netflix's latest addition, Daredevil, and the first four seasons of Game of Thrones, so a lot more shorts were seen this month. But a good amount were still viewed, especially with the latest instalment in one of the best recent film franchises. So, let's witness the films I viewed over the past April.

Franchise in Retrospect: Saw (2004 - 2010)

Welcome to a new segment of my blog, entitled Franchise in Retrospect. The idea of this is for me to take a franchise which I have not seen in it's entirety, and view each released instalment. I will then assess my overall thoughts on each chapter, and the entire franchise.

For my first entry, I have chosen a recent horror franchise which was a juggernaut at the box office, but far from a critical success. Doesn't narrow it down? Okay, it's Saw.

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the Saw franchise. Do not read on if you wish to remain unspoilt.
