This may seem like a sensitive area (no pun intended),  but its pretty difficult to hide away from this rather big scoop from the cinematic world.

The Babadook (2014)

Initially, the film seems to be a tired single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) and her hyperactive son (Noah Wiseman) and all the situations that follow with repeated actions cause problems at school and disrupt interactions with potential playmates. The dark and emotional past which highlights Sam’s father and his absence points to many reasons why the…

Split (2017)

Viewers can say they are “truly moved” by emotive films with depth and meaning that not only entertain but educate. This would sound a bit like something you would attach to a Rom-com or a documentary style viewing, but I am going to apply it to Split. I didn’t do any research into DID  (Dissociative Identity Disorder)…

Moana (2016)

Disney’s Mythical new installment bringing out the real adventurer in us all.

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…

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 #7: EDC Electric Daisy Carnival at Milton Keynes Bowl, UK 9/07/2016

Music, friends, amazing atmosphere. The one event I make sure I go to. Electric Daisy Carnival Electric Daisy Carnival, a one-day music event conducted across 4 separate stages; 3 circus tent based stages and the one monumental main stage in the “bowl” section where the artistic director goes to town, each year it’s something bigger and…

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…
