Wonder

As I was leaving the cinema, a girl to my right turned to her friend, motioned towards her face and said “Am I good?” Her friend looked at the running mascara all over her face, laughed and said “You’re not good!” I smiled smugly to myself, for I had the foresight to not wear m...

Memrise aka How to make Korean friends

Since I was a teenager I have loved watching K-dramas and listening to K-Pop. My plan was always to actually learn the language ‘someday’, but being the non-committal blob of a human that I am, I never got around to it! Enter: Memrise For a lady of leisure such as myself, an app that promised to...

Super Mario Odyssey!

Okay, I’m going to be straight up with you. The only other Mario game I’ve ever played is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario for me was always some other console’s Crash Bandicoot (hey, I’m young, and I only played PlayStation as a kid). But Super Mario Odyssey almost made me feel...

Bad Moms 2

Bad Moms was an unexpected treasure of a film for me. Following three Mums giving the middle finger to the competitiveness and pressure of being the ‘perfect mum’, it was excellently timed, comedic genius. You can see my full thoughts on it here. Bad Moms 2 aka A Bad Moms Christmas, unfortunatel...

Thor: Ragnarok

I am not a Marvel fangirl. I don’t squeal every time a new film is announced or countdown the days until the films are released. In fact, I was getting a little sick of Marvel superhero movies until along came Guardians of the Galaxy, with it’s new brand of Marvel humour and general vibe, it was...

Detroit: hugely important and disturbing to watch

Lucy: I’ve never been to a film before where the audience has been in complete silence as the credits rolled. Not even a whisper. Louise: I’m still speechless the morning after. This is going to be a difficult review to write. Lucy: Well the film is directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal who p...

Fireworks – Should we see it from the side or the bottom? Is a slice of life anime with a twist of sci fi and romance. The story revolves around 1 day in summer. A group of boys plan to watch fireworks from a small town’s lighthouse and make a bet if they are flat or round (from the side). Durin...

Home Again

Ok. OK. OKAY. I don’t quite know what to make of Home Again.  I know one thing for sure though, Reese Witherspoon hasn’t aged a day since Legally Blonde (daaaamn guuurrrrl). Enough about the good things in this movie, let’s have a little peek into where it went wrong. The basic set up is t...

Brigsby Bear & Nick’s hot dating tips

Of all the reviews I’ve written this one will be one of the hardest. Because I’ve gotta be subtle and light. I’ve gotta run parallel to the subject, to highlight yet not reveal. Because I loved it. I loved Brigsby Bear 9 out of 10. That’s all you really need to know. You can just stop reading now and just g...

Gran Turismo Sport Review

Here it is! One of the staples of Playstation on it’s latest console: Gran Turismo Sport! After the best introduction to a game EVER, I was pumped! However, when I opened the game without an internet connection, I was greeted with the message that the game would not save. Nor would any progress be mad...
