So, last week I saw the movie “Savages”. As you may realise, this kind of movie is not the type I would normally see, but I’ve decided I might as well review it anyway. Let me state now that I didn’t like it much, and hence there are numerous spoilers to follow. Continue Reading
So, there’s been Supanova, Armageddon and Oz Comic-Con ( I didn’t get to go to that) this year, and in essence they’re all the same. They’re a weekend-long occasion where a bunch of geeky guys and gals gather together, often in costume, to share their love of comics, anime, TV shows, movies and general pop culture. It’s a commercial event, so there’s always tonnes of stuff to buy, but also things to see and do. In short, it’s great fun. Yesterday I went to the Armageddon Expo, a pop culture and comic convention, with the same friends that came to Supanova. And following the trend, it was quite similar in some way to Supanova, but also quite different. Continue Reading
So, last night I saw the new movie Looper, with a few of my friends. A particular friend of mine and I have always been fascinated in time travel and the possibility of such, so the fact that this movie centres around time travel had us interested. So we went and saw it, and now I have a review for you. As usual, I’ll try and keep it spoiler free. Continue Reading
So, if you haven’t been watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, this post isn’t going to make much sense to you. But you can fix that by simply devoting the time to watching all (so far) 43 videos. I better give you some context: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern adaptation of Pride & Prejudice, told primarily through the medium of YouTube vlogs (video blogs), as well as though an extensive deluge of various other social media posts, predominantly Tumblr. The other social media is used to explore the story from the point of view of many other characters, some of which are minor in the original narrative.
So, a few days ago I went and saw the Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban) movie with a few friends. I’m a BIG fan of the video game series, so I was quite excited and looking forward to seeing what they did with it. And I wasn’t disappointed.
** As usual, this review should be spoiler free. But if you’ve already played the games, you already know most of what’s going to happen.** Continue Reading
So, I saw the new reboot of the Spider-Man movies known as “The Amazing Spider-Man” today, and it was pretty good. Although, to a web-head like me (you know what I mean, true believers!), some of it just didn’t ring true. So to cover both, today my review comes to you in two parts: Part 1 – review without spoilers, Part 2 – nit-picking with spoilers. Continue Reading
So, after a seven year “hiatus”, Garbage, one of my most favourite bands of all time, have finally released a new album. I didn’t even hear about it until two weeks before it was released, and wasn’t really expecting myself to get excited, but as the release day grew closer, I just got more thrilled and more eager. I think one of the reasons I got so excited was that I have a 5-disc changer stereo in my room, and with this album I’d be able to fill it solely with Garbage. So, in the end, I went out last Friday, release day for Australia before anywhere else, and bought the deluxe edition. I bought the deluxe for two reasons, 1- It has four extra songs, and 2- It’s a nice bright red colour. Below, I have reviewed the whole of “Not Your Kind Of People”, track-by-track in addition to as a whole.
