Twist

It begins with, “There’s no singing, no dancing. And definitely no happy ending.” Damn. I like all those three things. I love Oliver Twist the musical and can do an excellent rendition of Fagin’s “Be Back Soon” if no one is watching. But I was also intrigued enough to che...

Made in Italy

I’d always wanted to see what Flight of the Conchords’ Bret McKenzie would be like in a non-comedic romantic role. Well, this wasn’t it, just in case you’re wondering. But it’s close. Bret’s body double -also known as Micheál Richardson- plays Jack, an art gallery owner. ...

Music – a film by Sia

You might be forgiven for thinking this is a musical, or at least one giant music video. I mean, with Sia at the director’s helm, you already know what to expect. Dancing? Check. Surrealist sets? Check. Maddie Ziegler? MOST DEFINITELY. What I didn’t expect is how this film takes on some pretty difficu...

Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles

At first, the premise of this was so confusing to me. Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing I don’t love about all three concepts: Yotam Ottolenghi. His reverent approach to food is something that has always stood out to me. When this master of middle-eastern food steps into any kitchen, his zen-...

Song of Bloom

I feel like I know what to expect from developer Kamibox. Whimsical death. Physics-based letter games. And the strange but brilliant concept of throwing bacon on stuff. Opening up Song of Bloom though, I get the feeling that I’m about to encounter something completely different. The game centres aroun...

The Gentlemen: More Fun than Should be Allowed

So here’s me trying to convince my friend to come see The Gentlemen with me. I send him the trailer link accompanied by this message, “I love this director but I honestly, I can’t understand too much of the plot.” Friend writes back. “Oh wow, that IS my type of movie.” Th...

Untitled Goose Game: Di’s Game of the Year thus far

I’ve never had a picnic of stolen goods before. Looking down at my picnic rug complete with overturned thermos and sandwiches chucked on the ground, I’m actually pretty proud of myself…and so it begins. Who knew that being a goose could be so much fun? But then again, I’m not just ha...

Star Wars’ New Alien, Joker’s Opening Night, and Sony and Microsoft try to Save the Planet

Hi fans! This week, Jaz is off fighting bad guys (i.e. germs) and left the PMW in my dubiously-capable hands. So, what’s in store? How about some new aliens! Cue the Star Wars theme music, please! WHO THE FRIK IS BABU? December 20th. Don’t forget it. Because it’s my birthday. It also happe...

Little Misfortune: The Saddest Game I’ve Played So Far

Little Misfortune takes a leaf from Disney’s book. Rife with woodland creatures, pastel colours and lots of glitter, it’s easy to think that this is some cutesy story. That is, until you look at the main character’s diary. The narrator, nicknamed “Mr. Voice”, tells us that Litt...

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

It’s fair to say, it’s been a tough couple of weeks for Mr. Wick. Considering that the events of all 3 movies take place in just a few days of each other. However, we the viewers have had to wait a fair bit longer than that to discover what happens to John in Chapter 3. John Wick 3 – Parabellum is now...

Aladdin: Blu-Ray Release

Back in May this year, Eloise wrote a glowing two-thumbs-up review for Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin. If that didn’t convince you that you should add this to your collection of Blu-Rays, costumes and Funko Pops of Disney princesses, read on. While Aladdin hasn’t actually been my ...

Downton Abbey

If you haven’t finished season 6’s Christmas special of Downton Abbey, please stop here and go watch that first. Not only will that save you from possible spoilers, but it’s a damn good episode. Like, everything you ever wanted to happen happens and you cry happy tears about it. Okay I mig...
