BlackKkKlansman: Essential Viewing That Will Make You Angry In The Right Way

1 month ago / 0 comments

Following the true story of a black man infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s, BlackkKlansman is an offensive, in-your-face, and unflinching depiction of racism and fanatical politics. It’s constant parallelisms to Trump alongside the hopeful naiveté of the main character pull together every strand of hatred and discrimination … Read More

VANT @ The Wardrobe, 25/2/17

2 years ago / 0 comments

From the moment I walked down the red-tinged stairs of The Wardrobe and into the main gig area, I could tell the crowd was raring to go. As the warm-up act were playing their delicately deep songs, kids were pushing and shoving to get to the front: eager to get … Read More

LUU Spoken Word Society Poetry Slam @ Wharf Chambers

2 years ago / 0 comments

Having never been to an event like this before, and being able only to draw from memories of Jonah Hill awkwardly forming staccato-ed emphasis on the name Cynthia, I had no realistic expectation for what a poetry slam was even going to be like. Save for my initial overwhelming awe … Read More

Review: Split – invigoratingly unique horror

2 years ago / 0 comments

At first I was extremely wary of this film. Anything which negatively dramatises the effects of mental illnesses or disorders is something I find uncomfortable to approach. Fortunately, Shyamalan’s portrayal of Dissociative Identity Disorder is initially empathetic enough to dodge the typical label of stigmatic ignorance. The overtly exaggerated elements … Read More

Review: Snowdon – limp and disappointing

2 years ago / 0 comments

Despite being deemed as a widely important watch by many critics, Oliver Stone’s newest psychological thriller was, sadly, a disappointment.

Review: Gilmore Girls: Changing Seasons

2 years ago / 0 comments

The first time I heard about the Gilmore Girls revival all I could think was…jump back. Like every Gilmore Girls fan who had bitten the forbidden fruit of loving a discontinued TV-show, I wasn’t remotely satisfied when the show ended the first time round. I was that kid who scoured … Read More
