Blue Planet II: The Deep

5 days ago / 0 comments

This time, Attenborough takes us to an area we know “less about than the surface of Mars”, the very depths of the ocean. Descending in to a pitch black underwater devoid desert, you probably wouldn’t expect the array of fish with huge fangs and even transparent heads, as well as … Read More

Geostorm Isn’t Full of Awe; It’s Awful

2 weeks ago / 0 comments

Geostorm could have been mindless fun, but it fails to reach even those standards. With Gerard Butler at the helm of this fantasy science fiction, it was set to be just as exciting and impassioned as previous Butler-starring films, such as 300. Any predictions, however, would have been hopelessly dashed … Read More

First performed as Eva O’Connell’s play two years ago, Overshadowed was released as a TV series on BBC Three earlier this month.

Liam Gallagher returns with his debut solo album “As You Were”, 26 years after starting his life-changing band Oasis. This album comes after his own claims on Twitter that he’d never do it because he’s “not a cunt” – yet, after a summer of playing festivals and a tour announcement, … Read More

HighRise Opening Party 2017 – Review

2 months ago / 0 comments

HighRise really needs no introduction. With an incredible level of popularity amongst students, and a status like no other club event in Leeds, this year’s Opening Party saw tickets selling out in minutes, with revellers clearly not dissuaded by some going for £20+ a pop. The organisers certainly rose to … Read More

‘IT’ Review

2 months ago / 0 comments

Is It a bad film? No. But it is a very faithful adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, and as a result it does inherit a lot of the flaws of King’s writing. It ends up being a worse film than it could have been, and it’s largely to do with … Read More

Architects’ Unexpected Return with ‘Doomsday’

2 months ago / 0 comments

Architects’ massive 7th album, All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, was always going to be a difficult one to follow up. It was the band’s most commercially successful release to date, and undeniably the heaviest, most impressive record of their career so far. But after the loss of founding guitarist … Read More

Defenders – The TV’s Avengers?

3 months ago / 0 comments

It’s not quite, but then again it doesn’t want to be. It wants to be a culmination of an arc that was built from Daredevil and Iron Fist, which it is… with fair results. Despite Grade A performances from all our established characters, the show starts off too slow. Taking … Read More
