If anyone is wanting to subject themselves to an intense amount of emotional anguish this week, then I’d suggest watching Ryan Murphy’s film, The Normal Heart. Set in 1980’s New York, the film follows the founding of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, as volunteers try to spread awareness of the AIDs crisis. Based on Larry Kramer’s […]

In times of cold wintry blasts, being alone can either mean you are lurched up in blankets feeling warm and snuggly, or dredged up in your bed with an empty wine glass. It could also mean neither of these options, because I don’t know your life. But for Kevin McCallister, he spends his nights ingeniously […]

From the English joy that brought you Love Actually, snuggle yourselves down for the masterpiece that is About Time. Usually the phrase “you’ll laugh, you’ll cry!” is a stink cliche that tells you nothing about the actual content or flavour of the film.

At the heart of this story is Tilikum, an orca whale blamed for the deaths of […]

The critically acclaimed Studio Ghibli film Princess Mononoke presents a beautiful and vivid exposé of how men ain’t shit, and how we are fucking over the environment. This masterpiece follows a basic male protagonist, Ashitaka, who deals with a demon plague (and infection), and falls in love with his saviour and true hero of the […]

Quite simply, both the book and film are a delight. I do love a vivacious centralising voice, and Juliet Ashton’s voice convinced me not only that spending the length of the novel with her would be enjoyable, but also that I too could compile a enthralling and witty compilation of un-extraordinary tales with humour and […]

Love, Simon is a classic high school rom-com filled with tons of millennial buzzwords and liberal concepts that would make hipsters orgasm on the spot. I love it. The movie follows 17-year-old Simon Spier. His story is a cute, funny teen romance like any other. A touch of Perks of Being a Wallflower and Clueless. […]
