Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

Recommended Reading

Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson: Soulful, Wistful and emotionally charged. This book is an alternate coming of age story propelled by loss and redeemed by love with every other range of human emotion in between. Superbly written, it is perhaps one of the very few books that actually explores the idea of growing up as……read more

It’s a Pain Alright.

Max Payne I don’t know what made me think this was going to be a good movie. Video game movies have a horrible track record of being complete crap. There is a long list of these movies including Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Doom. This movie didn’t fail to disappoint. For those of… …more

Look Out For This!

Renowned designer Emanuel Ungaro and Breakout Indian Glam Designer Manish Arora have designed individual colour palettes for Mac. There are some beautiful colours. There’s an eye shadow palette from Manish boasts the fiercest, brighter than bright colours that can instantly make your peepers the envy of all the other b*tches around your block. And Ungaro’s……read more

Bad Spellers of the World Untie! I don’t get it.

When I first saw this printed on a t-shirt I was with a couple of my friends and they burst into laughter. I sat there and giggled a bit but that was just a front to hide my confusion. For a long time I didn’t get it. What can I say? I am a… …more

Too Much To Handle?

Alright this mornings rant is about these people who drive huge vehicles like vans, SUV’s and even municipal trucks, who believe that these vehicles can’t handle doing more than 3 kilometers per hour over a little bump in the road. It’s really very, VERY annoying. Perhaps this vehicle is too much for you and you……read more

HAMMER TIME? OH GOD NO!

Are you bitches ready for Hammer Pants? Because they are on the way and “y’all better recognize” as they say or I say or…never mind. Seriously though, they are coming and have made appearance everywhere. First, earlier this year during New York Fashion Week in a couple of shows and then they surreptitiously splashed again……read more

Solace

I always believed the raven, although majestic in its blackened beauty was normally a solitary bird so it shocked me to see a flock of thousands upon opening the door. I must have given them a fright as well for all at once they took flight making early morning an artificial blue/black night. The sound……read more

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is a funny movie. It’s not hilarious and not a bore it is an average comedy. The laughs are pretty evenly spaced with ok performances by everyone involved. Simon Pegg is a great comedic actor but he comes across the best in works that he has more… …more

My Two Cents.

Is it just me, or have we all been (at one point or another) stuck behind those people who feel it necessary to argue with a cashier about a few pennies? Whenever I get in a line to pay for something especially at a grocery store I get stuck behind these people. “No that cookie……read more

Droppin’ Some Education

L.A.S.E.R. For those who don’t know it is an acronym. It stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Gordon Gould was the first person to use the term LASER in the late 1950’s. The acronym roots of the word LASER have been mainly forgotten outside the scientific world due to the terms… …more
