Review: The Chef Show

I’m a sucker for cookery shows, and my adoration for the movie Chef (2014) and Jon Favreau’s work certainly paved the way towards my interest in The Chef Show; a cooking show that focuses on the feel-good atmosphere kitchen, alongside showing recipes from Chef and the food that inspired it.   Favreau is a feverish and charismatic host. His knowledge of the culinary arts […]

Review: Murder Mystery

Review: Murder Mystery

Oh, great, another Adam Sandler comedy. Sandler has been about as on the ball as a dead seal in these past few years of filmmaking. Jack and Jill seemed to be the catalyst of what has become a landslide of awful, cheap and downright dispiriting films that have taken their toll on the Sandman. His […]

Review: Chernobyl

Courtsey of Sky ©Sky UK Ltd/HBO Documentary-style movies based on true stories have become more popular in recent years, one of the many successes being Bryan Singer’s Bohemian Rhapsody and Dexter Fletcher’s Rocketman.

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 […]

Why fans are so disappointed with Game of Thrones

Why fans are so disappointed with Game of Thrones

By Shay O’Leary SPOILER WARNING Unfortunately, the last two seasons have been a little underwhelming and this is mainly due to bad writing from D and D (David Beniof and DB Weiss), flooding them with inconsistency.  Fans are so upset that a petition has been made to remake the final season, which currently has almost […]

REVIEW: Game of Thrones, Season Eight; Episode 5 – The Bells

Credit: @gameofthrones (instagram) The penultimate episode of the final ever season of Game of Thrones leaves much to be desired. Following off after the death of Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) at King’s Landing in the previous episode, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) seems to be going through some sort of shock. It doesn’t help that Varys (Conleth […]

Review: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Review: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

If the intention of director Joe Berlinger had been to convince its audience that Ted Bundy was at the very most, innocent, then it has done an ominously strange job of doing so. Even a bona fide fact-checker could’ve been fooled by the strange pacing and uniquely bland performance of Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy. To suggest Extremely Wicked, […]

In this scene we see Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey) and Eddison Tollett (Ben Crompton) all being […]

Anyone Fancy A Game of Coffee?

Anyone Fancy A Game of Coffee?

By Hannah Smith After long hours of filming – and even longer hours spent in the hair and makeup trailers getting ready – it’s no wonder that the actors and actresses of the new season of Game of Thrones desperately needed a bit of a caffeine boost. Still, it was a shock to hawk-eyed viewers […]
