LADY GAGA ‘CHROMATICA’ – REVIEW

Little monsters have been waiting four years for Lady Gaga’s sixth studio album. After leaks and release delays, Chromatica is finally here. The album is a return to the brazen electro-pop realm that catapulted Gaga to superstardom. Utilising disco synth pop, lush strings and sharp and erratic beats, the record is a personal exploration of…

THE 1975 ‘NOTES ON A CONDITIONAL FORM’ – REVIEW

Any fan of The 1975 knows to expect the unexpected. Throughout their career, the band have crossed genres and musical styles, exploring themes of political unrest, drug use, the internet, love, sex, life and more. Their long awaited fourth record, Notes on a Conditional Form, (the bookend to their Music for Cars era) is no exception….

HAYLEY WILLIAMS RELEASES SOLO ALBUM PETALS FOR ARMOUR – REVIEW

Hayley Williams releasing a solo album is not a phrase the Paramore front woman (has previously stated) ever thought would be uttered. Yet here we are, almost three years to the day since Paramore released their latest album, with her debut solo record, Petals for Armour.  Petals for Armour is an album that Williams herself…

100 WORD REVIEW – RAMBO

I have to be honest, I’ve seen most of Sly Stallone’s movies, but I haven’t seen a Rambo film. From what I knew Rambo (the character) was some sort of survival style guide. So upon viewing the latest installment, Rambo: Last Blood it does a good job in revisiting Rambo’s past and giving little nuggets…

100 WORD REVIEW: POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Well developed story to be enjoyed by the whole family. Surprisingly held our attention from start to finish. Justice Smith did a really great job in a role we could relate to, and contrary to what we initially thought Ryan Reynolds made a pretty good Pikachu. I know, right?! We’re hoping there’s more to come…

100 WORD REVIEW: SHAZAM!

I’m going to start by saying, I think Shazam! was a tad too long. I also wasn’t as much of a fan as I thought I’d be of Zachary Levi as Shazam. Something just didn’t work. However, Warner Bros. have proven again that they succeed in casting great performers in the younger roles. Much like…

REVIEW – FIVE FEET APART

Walking into the cinema, I knew very little regarding the film Five Feet Apart. I knew a bit about the actors and that potentially it would be quite a tear-jerker. I found this film was a beautiful, informative story, looking at the realities of life with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). We are introduced to Stella (Haley…

100 WORD REVIEW: AQUAMAN

Aquaman is a cinematic feast for the eyes. One of our favourite DC heroes is brought to life not just by Jason Momoa’s performance, but by the vision of director James Wan. Standout performances by Nicole Kidman (Atlanna) and Amber Heard (Mera) who had some well crafted fight sequences. The mastery when it came to…

REVIEW – THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME

I’ve always enjoyed comedies surrounding the spy genre, so when we were invited to watch The Spy Who Dumped Me we set to practicing our super cool Spy poses. With great success. So we combat rolled our way down to Event Cinemas in the city to watch The Spy Who Dumped Me (TSWDM) starring Mila…

REVIEW – READY PLAYER ONE

I have to say there have been quite a substantial amount of really good films released lately. Ready Player One is one of them. To say I enjoyed this film would be an understatement. From start to finish it was a wild ride. You got so much out of the two hours and twenty minutes…
