FILM REVIEW: American Assassin (2017)

Starring The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien and Birdman’s Michael Keaton, American Assassin is an action packed thriller with a LOT of fighting. If you get easily attached to characters in movies, this might not be the film for you as almost every new character introduced dies within minutes.   O’Brien stars as Mitch Rapp, an American who loses his parents in a car accident as a […]

Review:Sunset Boulevard, Theatre Royal Newcastle

Sitting in the auditorium waiting for the show to start I had my usual sense of excitement and anticipation, but this time it was different. Having never seen this show before, with no sense of what it was about, I was looking forward to finding out. As soon as the orchestra played the first chords of the […]

But that doesn’t mean it’s lost any of the old appeal; Jack is still there drinking his rum (though perhaps […]

By Sam Wilkinson The year was 1984, and July 27 saw Metallica releasing their second album, ‘Ride The Lightning’.

The film takes the original series and gives it a more grounded and realistic feel as five social outcasts from the town of Angel Grove, California […]

And now it seems that now Disney is progressing even further by including LGBT characters and themes in their plots. There was […]
