A Week in Sicily

1 Comment 24 October 2011

Firstly, let me say this – I have never been overseas. So it was with a mix of excitement and trepidation that I boarded the 20-hour flight to Italy. But after we took the bus from Catania and finally arrived in Ortigia, I forgot all about that and just took in the age and beauty […]

Red Dog

No Comments 24 October 2011

Red Dog is possibly the last movie on Earth that you would expect to be based on a true story. It has the most unlikely characters, a few ridiculous scenes and a dog who can wander the desert for months on end without food or water. Yet everything that happens throughout the course of the […]

Jonti – Twirligig

No Comments 22 October 2011

I don’t know much about Jonti other than that he arrived in Australia from South Africa (sometime recently I suppose), he is signed with Stones Throw Records in the US and he could well be a musical mastermind. Twirligig is his debut album along with ‘brother’ record TokoRats. Jonti has formed a very interesting, intuitive […]

Submarine

2 Comments 22 October 2011

I am a mammoth fan of The Mighty Boosh and The IT Crowd and have a particular liking for actor Richard Ayoade (playing Saboo the arrogant shaman and the nerdy, socially awkward Morris Moss respectively). Thus, seeing his name clearly displayed – as director – on a colourful poster for the new film Submarine was […]

Final Destination 5

1 Comment 22 October 2011

I’ve never been too big a fan of the Final Destination films. I liked the first one, but I didn’t really appreciate the rest, and I wasn’t planning on seeing the fifth. For some reason, I decided to see it, and oh, what a fantastic decision that was. Because, without a doubt, Final Destination 5 […]

Lonesome Road

No Comments 06 October 2011

If there was ever a game that didn’t need any additional content, it would be Fallout: New Vegas. With over one hundred hours of playing time, a map near to the actual size of Las Vegas, dozens of quests and so many locations that nobody’s ever bothered to count them there is more than enough […]

Abduction Review

No Comments 06 October 2011

Abduction is a cheesy, badly acted action film with a promising plot ruined by bad writers and actors. Good idea, bad execution. This movie seemed so promising to me, described as “a thriller centered on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a […]

Marina and the Diamonds: Electra Heart

No Comments 06 October 2011

Marina and the Diamonds have just released the first single from their upcoming album, and, to be frank, it’s a load of excrement. Completely abandoning the retro pop vibes of her debut LP, The Family Jewels, ‘Radioactive’ is evidence that Marina has finally become one of the same-same pop stars that she mocked in her […]

Love Never Dies

1 Comment 06 October 2011

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies hits all the right notes. In a explosive burst of colour and intrigue, prepare to be swept away by the haunting beauty of this long-awaited sequel to The Phantom of The Opera. Writing a follow-up to history’s most successful musical is neither stupid nor impossible. Brave is the more […]

Enclosed in the final book of the massively popular CHERUB series, Shadow Wave, was a strange piece of plastic that, when moved over a pad on the last page, revealed a mysterious online address. When typed into a web browser this address took you directly to a site dedicated only to information about a new […]
