Tenet | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The new trailer for Tenet has landed and it's mind-bending! If you haven't seen it yet, or you just want to watch it again, check it out below:

As you'd expect, we still don't really know much, other than the movie looks awesome. If it helps here is the official synopsis:
"Armed with only one word -- Tenet -- and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time."
The first thing I think of when I watch this trailer is a certain line from Inception; "you mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger darling." I think this is basically Christopher Nolan's mantra, the words he must live by - or at least applies to his work. Nolan is a writer/director who's great across the board. He can do action, drama, tension, emotion, good characters, and he does it all very well. With Tenet there's definitely an element …

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.



As always you can check out the previous post in our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide by clicking here.





Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?




I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 5 | Beyond the Blockbusters

Part 5 of our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide brings us to YouTube, and a new show called "Beyond the Blockbusters".


Check out Part 4 of our Survival Guide by clicking here.




In an attempt to achieve some kind of fame, Chase Cousins (JJ Carroll) has started his own movie review show, one in which he discusses some of the greatest movies ever made... often incoherently. Along for the ride are his co-host/assistant Geoffrey (Matt Tory), and a whole host of - not exactly special - guests, as Chase crashes into the movie-loving world with "Beyond the Blockbusters".




Matt Tory and JJ Carroll - the guys behind "The Beech Boys" - are back with their new show. Beyond the Blockbusters is an amusing parody of the many talk shows gracing our screens, not to mention an interesting commentary on the social media generation. It's incredible what people will do in this day and age to be famous, and Carroll's performance as Chase Cousins perfectly embodies that. Th…

Redisplacement | Average Guy Movie Review

We're taking a break from our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide to review the upcoming short film, Redisplacement (@ReDisplacement on Twitter), which will be available to watch on Dust (via YouTube) from the 14th May.




Somewhere in the near future, we find ourselves in some kind of Doctor's office. The patient, Leo (Nico Mirallegro), is undergoing some sort of psychological procedure, he's searching for something. But what is it he's searching for? And the person guiding him on his search - Doctor Michelle (Nathalie Cox) - is she really there to help him, or is she manipulating him?




A great deal of ambiguity surrounds Redisplacement, to levels bordering on paranoia. When we meet Leo, he's already beginning his procedure - a perilous deep dive into his long-term memory, using a machine that falls somewhere between the Animus from the Assassin's Creed video games and whatever it is they use to enter dreams in Inception. Witnessing events from - and yet sli…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 4 | 'After Life 2' & 'Extraction'

With the lockdown proceeding, Netflix has done us all a favour by adding something - two things in fact - to their line up: After Life season 2 and Extraction.

Click here to check out the previous instalment in our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide.

Firstly, After Life season 2...



Ricky Gervais returns as Tony Johnson, a man struggling to deal with the loss of his wife Lisa to cancer. As well as his grief, Tony must continue to face the crazy people living in his home town of Tambury, mostly through his work as a local journalist - some of whom are his colleagues. Thank god he's still got his dog Brandy to keep him company!



Season 2 pretty much picks up where things left off. Tony is doing a little better, he's still got this massive hole in his life, but at least he's not taking it out on those around him. Gervais continues to deliver what is easily the best performance of his career. He is able to be this very sad, depressed person, and yet is able to make us laugh…
