LIVE REVIEW: BANANARAMA, TIFFANY & AMBER @ ENMORE THEATRE (24.02.2019)

  Bananarama, Tiffany and Amber walk into a bar. It’s not 1989, even if it may feel that way. These artists know that girls just wanna have fun and they delivered joyous sets filled with nostalgic pop music. The Enmore Theatre could have been the setting for fluro outfits, large perms and shoulder pads, but these…

BLU-RAY REVIEW: MILE 22

  A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And a trip of 22 miles begins with a single explosion. Okay, not a single one, but you get the connection. The film, Mile 22 is an action-packed one that pulls lot of punches. While this could be fun and appealing to some…

BLU-RAY REVIEW: THE NUTTY PROFESSOR

  Eddie Murphy is a chameleon actor. Never was this more apparent than in the film, The Nutty Professor. This comedy would see him playing seven different roles in a story that was a remake of the Jerry Lewis film from 1963. It is ultimately a fun, crude and vibrant tale.

FILM REVIEW: TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS

  It would be far too easy to dismiss the second instalment in the newly rebooted, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, Out Of the Shadows, especially with the glut of superhero/comic book films around at present. While this film is unlikely to win any major awards it does have some redeeming qualities over its predecessor….

ALBUM REVIEW: PHILADELPHIA GRAND JURY – SUMMER OF DOOM

  Philadelphia Grand Jury still know how to party (party), and their new single ‘Crashing & Burning Pt. II’ and comeback record Summer Of Doom prove it. The short and sharp 12 tracks are a raw and red-hot deal that segues off on more tangents than a drunk uncle, and it’s all as bubbly and fun as…

DVD REVIEW: MAN FINDS FOOD

Man Finds Food is a TV show with a simple name and an even simpler premise. It sees food enthusiast, Adam Richman in the eponymous role and telling people about some hidden restaurants that are off the beaten track and their secret menu items that locals do not necessarily know about. It is something that…

FILM REVIEW: MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS

If you thought the teenagers from The Maze Runner were out of the woods because they escaped the labyrinth, you’re wrong. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is the second instalment that sees the characters grappling with a fresh set of challenges and obstacles,  and with the energy and tension raised to 11. This film does not work as…
