The OA

Posted 2:11pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Saskia Bunce-Rath

Rating: 5/5 The OA. Wow. What a divisive show. If you read the reviews online they oscillate wildly between people who think it’s the worst show since Lost, and people who’ve spent hours drawing diagrams and probably gesticulating wildly about how great it is. I went into this show Read more...

Dramaworld

Posted 1:55pm Sunday 19th March 2017 by Laura Starling

Rating: 4/5 Claire Duncan (Liv Hewson) is a fangirl. The 20-year-old college student is obsessed with K-drama (Korean drama TV shows). She knows all the ins and outs of the genre, and hangs excitedly on every line, cliffhanger and dramatic turn the shows throw her way. Stuck between work and Read more...

Manchester by the Sea

Posted 1:47pm Sunday 12th March 2017 by Jaxon Langley

Rating: 3.5/5 Kenneth Lonergan is famed for exploring grief in his films. His previous film, Margaret, was a character study of a high school girl who is traumatised after witnessing a woman hit by a bus.

Rating: 5/5 Set in the year 2029, years after the events of 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Logan brings the story of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine (AKA Logan AKA James Howlett) to its logical conclusion. Fully embracing the ever-deepening growling bitterness in Jackman’s Read more...

Rating: 1/5 I don’t know about you, but when a Netflix original rolls my way, I tend to get pretty excited. Netflix has a habit of picking up cool, interesting shows and movies that wouldn’t necessarily get funding from conventional studios. I trust Netflix with my viewing pleasure. Read more...

T2: Trainspotting

Posted 1:31pm Sunday 12th March 2017 by Siany O’Brien

Rating: 4.5/5 T2: Trainspotting is everything a sequel should be. It has the original cast and director (Danny Boyle), and is a continuation of the original story set 20 years later, but it still has the same charm as its predecessor. For all you who were scarred by the first film, fear not! T2 Read more...

Fifty Shades Darker

Posted 12:58pm Sunday 5th March 2017 by Florence Dean

Rating: 2.5/5 This saucy flick follows the ridiculous relationship of Anastasia Steel/Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). James Foley deserves half a clap on the back for accomplishing the, not very hard, task of making this film slightly better than the last. I couldn’t Read more...
