Review: Snatch (TV Series)

Standard

If you asked me to name a film that could be turned in to a TV series, Snatch most certainly wouldn’t have been my first choice. In fact, I doubt it even would have crossed my mind! Never-the-less, American TV Streaming company, Crackle, have decided that that’s just what they’d do!

With Snatch being one of my favourite British films, I had to give this a shot and see if it was worth the hype. Snatch the TV Series is loosely based on its movie counterpart from 2000 by Guy Ritchie, in that it’s centred around a heist gone wrong and a thrown boxing match. After that, though, it’s easy to see that this is its own entity. Continue reading

Never being one to stay still for long, Frank Carter started exploring his heavier roots and thus The Rattlesnakes were formed. Their debut album, ‘Blossom‘ (★★★★½) was a rip-roaring frenzy of punk, hardcore and even some blues. ‘Modern Ruin‘ takes a step away from that again in to something a lot more refined.
