Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

I have been reviewing for the crew at Pretty Much Geeks for over a year now and this is the most nervous I have felt about reviewing a film in all that time. As a member of the performing arts industry myself, offering feedback on such a prolific writer and filmmaker such as Quentin Tarantino is super intim...

Late Night

It’s no secret that I am a long time fan of everything Mindy Kaling. It’s also no secret that everyone with a brain is a fan of Emma Thompson. So I’ve basically been amped for Late Night from the moment it was first announced and it did not disappoint.  Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, a late night ta...

Booksmart

Good morning, winner. Take a deep breath. Visualize the mountain of your success and look down at everyone who’s ever doubted you. Fuck those losers. Fuck them in their stupid fucking faces.“ And that is how teenagers think. Booksmart is a coming-of-age teenage film which actually feels like it is abo...

Musings on The Lion King

I don’t quite know how to score this one. The Lion King is either amazing or meh depending on what you want from it. If you just want a nostalgia trip and will appreciate a pretty faithful replication of the original, then it’s fricken amazing. If you, like me, want to see a new spin on somethin...

How to be a Dota 2 Champion (and K-Pop idol)

Friday night, Di and I went to watch the ANZ Dota 2 grand final hosted by LetsPlay.Live. Despite not knowing a lot about the game, I had a ton of fun cheering and gasping with Di and the rest of the crowd! When the undefeated Athletico took their trophy and the audience started to disperse, we loitered awkw...
