Whiplash (2014)

  Films involving music have always excited me. Musicals, dramas, everything encapsulating the production of the sound and the skill of the player/performer never falls on deaf ears. This film Whiplash, in particular , made my heart pound, my ears ring, my eyes had stars in them…I couldn’t look away. I had put the film on in the…

Off Topic #8: Moving House

They say it’s meant to be one of the most stressful and traumatic situations you can go through. Moving house. Packing your life into boxes in some form of order with the intention to make it easier to unpack at the other end. Don’t be silly, where ever you put that specific item, you won’t…

Suicide Squad (2016)

  Well well, This is another film I held off seeing near release date so I could let the hype die down a little. The air was thick of negativity for the film and I like to be as unbiased as possible. The line-up of the characters in the first section of the film seemed…

Ghostbusters (2016)

  I watched the 1984 classic as a child (scared me shitless!) giggling at how scatty they were but how they always used to pull it together and save the city, and now they’ve done it again.I was primed to love this film ever since there was a whisper about the possibility two years ago. When…

Off Topic #6: Exploding Kittens Card Game

  It may sound kinda…violent, but believe me its not, so come out from behind your shield and listen about a new card game that I discovered. Now as is tradition with the meet ups with my group of girlfriends, we always end up playing some form of game alongside our drinking and this one…

Alice through the Looking Glass (2016)

  I held off on this review for a bit longer than usual as a colleague wanted to view the film before I wrote one…fair enough.So now I can pen its faults and fantastic sections at leisure! Alice through the looking glass is another adaptation of the original stories by Lewis Carroll, James Bobin and Tim…

Demolition (2016)

 Jake Gyllenhaal has always been a favored actor of mine. Not only as he is easy on the eyes (swoon) but also as his style of acting has always been passionate and deep on depicting many a difficult situation when featured cinematically and on this such occasion he came in like a wrecking ball…ahem. From…

Off Topic #5: Why comedy is the secret ingredient to life

There have been those times in the day…week…month…where if you didn’t laugh you would cry, and those times where completely forget the mundane and downright boring because of the one HILARIOUS situation that happened during the day. Its that laugh that makes you feel better. It has actually been scientifically proven that laughter can actually…
