This post is a bit of a departure from my usual fare, but I couldn’t help but write about my top five favourite cartoon theme songs from childhood after reading an excellent post on the five greatest TV theme songs by the lovely Emma of emmakwall (explains it all). After reading her post, the Ducktales […]

Episode two! What an episode. As always, watch out for spoilers below.

Another of director Christopher Nolan’s science fiction epics, Interstellar (2014) tells of a strange future Earth that has experienced an environmental catastrophe leading to large-scale food shortages.

I’m aware that this is probably the most delayed “Is it worth paying for a ticket?” review I’ve done. But for some reason, Australia seemed to get Big Eyes (2014, dir. Tim Burton) lucky last. In any case, Big Eyes tells the story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), a woman who paints haunting images of […]

It’s finally here! Season five of my equal favourite television show of all time is finally here! Again this year I’ll be recapping each episode of season five of Game of Thrones for your enjoyment and for my own personal need to rant and rave after watching certain scenes.

A quirky comedy-drama about music, authenticity and nonsense, Frank (2014, dir. Lenny Abrahamson) tells the story of the best band in the universe that no one has heard of yet – Soronprfbs. Jon Burroughs (Domnhall Gleeson) is a man in search of a band, a man who has a lot to say musically but no […]

Also known as the documentary that launched a thousand lawsuits, HBO’s Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015, dir. Alex Gibney) is based on a book of the same name by Lawrence Wright. This documentary, which has received a tidal wave of criticism from Church of Scientology members, details the questionable beginnings and […]

March was a strange month! It’s definitely the month that I’ve been the least active here in the entire history of the blog, probably because work has been completely crazy and I’ve been coming home and just collapsing asleep like some kind of robot with depleted batteries. But I promise I have been reading everyone’s […]

When I saw this blogathon over at the most marvellous Karamel Kinema, I knew I had to partake in it immediately. This excellent blogathon was created by Nostra of MyFilmviews (in association with MovieInsiders and Karamel Kinema) and focuses on the five senses of the human body – sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch. The […]

Here’s another of my Blindspot films – films which I have identified as a blind spot in my watch list, films that I probably should have seen already but have finally committed to actually watching in 2015. I recently watched Roman Polanski’s Chinatown (1974), a neo-noir mystery film starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. Its […]
