Movie Review: Commando 35th Anniversary

Movie Review: Commando 35th Anniversary

Why I didn’t have the nerve to give this movie a full five-star rating on my first viewing is beyond me, because if there were ever an action movie worth that high a rating, it’d be Commando. From cult director Mark L. Lester and starring the prolific and ever brilliant Arnold Schwarzenegger, Commando proves itself […]

Opinion: Northern Lights’ Music Taste

Opinion: Northern Lights’ Music Taste

  During my first term at university, I spent a lot of time with Northern Lights – often trying to write last-minute essays for my modules and trying not to get distracted by the news on the telly. In that time, I watched as Spark took down their mood board for the top 50 indie […]

Music Review: Different Class 25th Anniversary

Music Review: Different Class 25th Anniversary

Cool Britannia, upon reflection, was a political ploy. The Blair era of politics hijacked the likes of Oasis and Blur as a way of modernising an age-old political message. If there were ever an album to defy and condemn this practice, it would be Different Class.  Many bands to come from Britain in the mid-1990s often strived for political activism. […]

Movie Review: Mighty Aphrodite 25th Anniversary

Movie Review: Mighty Aphrodite 25th Anniversary

Regardless of director, genre or style, you will always have a handful of films within a filmography that almost nobody speaks of. Whether that’s because the director had previously crafted a great piece or went on to make better movies, or simply because it wasn’t watched by many. Mighty Aphrodite is a film that I […]

Movie Review: Playmobil The Movie

Movie Review: Playmobil The Movie

It seems rather obvious that given the success of The Lego Movie we would eventually see knock off products release their own feature length films to cash in on the hype of younger audiences wanting to see their favourite toys on the big screen. We’ve yet to have the luxuary of a Halo: Mega Bloks […]

Retrospective Review: Batman 30 Years Later

Retrospective Review: Batman 30 Years Later

The Michael Keaton version of Batman became 30 years old this year. So how does it hold up in 2019? Is it better or worse than the most recent versions of the man dressed up as a bat? Batman is without a doubt an iconic character, and one of the most well known DC characters […]

Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Although I’ve not seen enough of his movies to confirm this, I truly think Robert Redford is one of the most consistently dependable actors to have ever worked in Hollywood. His swan song leading role in The Old Man and His Gun had me interested in checking out the rest of his filmography, and where […]

A personal challenge to watch Friends before graduation

A personal challenge to watch Friends before graduation

In 21 years of my life, I had never watched an episode of Friends, I had heard about it, knew the theme and understood that it was supposed to be this massive part of 90s and early 00s American culture. So when I told people at uni that I had never seen an episode they […]
