Adam Sandler is the Karl Marx of our Generation: A Critical Analysis

Posted 11:01pm Thursday 4th October 2018 by Henessey Griffiths

18 films. Two psychoanalyses. One terrible comedy album. We have now reached the end of our time here at Mr. Sandler, Bring Me a Dream. What a journey we have been on together. To be honest, there was a period in which I didn’t even know if I would be writing this. But here we Read more...

Posted 8:31pm Thursday 4th October 2018 by Callum Doyle

When I envision how couch burning started in this glorious city we call home, a couple of scenarios go through my mind.

The Top Things of 2018

Posted 6:56pm Thursday 4th October 2018 by Joel MacManus

The History of the Critic/ODT Journalism Turf War

Posted 11:43pm Thursday 27th September 2018 by Charlie O’Mannin

New Zealand is a small country. We’d fit in the pocket of a real country and be indistinguishable from lint. Our small population moulds our news outlets into unusual beasts.

I Tried the Vogue White Wine & Eggs Diet and It Nearly Killed Me

Posted 10:33pm Thursday 27th September 2018 by Saskia Rushton-Green

I am not a resilient person, spiritually or physically. I become distressed when I don’t get my 5+ a day and I cried the other day because I remembered the time six months ago that an old lady was mean to me.  So, I thought that doing this objectively bad diet would be great.

Porn is a strange thing.
