With the likelihood of impending doom approaching the world in less than one week, I thought it would be fitting to weigh in on the current Presidential climate. Even though the U.S. are stuck with Trump and Hillary in what seems like a lose-lose situation, we decided to try lighten the mood by picking five… Read More

With a gross of over one hundred and fifty million dollars in the in U.S. box office, Bad Neighbours was sure to get a sequel sooner or later.

What do you get when you put Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, high quality special effects and the Wachowski’s in a Hollywood blender? One ends up with a beverage that’s a little thick, (particulary Mila Kunis’ character Jupiter Jones) and a film that is overdone and layered on too thick that even the most-die hard Channing… Read More

This duo consisted of the muscle-bound jock (Tatum) and the higher intellect (Hill). When you put the two opposites together, you get two cops overcompensating and looking to do things exactly like a cheese-ridden 80’s… Read More

When I saw the trailer for “Bad Neighbours”, it was an instant sell. It was not just because of the noticeably original plot of a feud between a young family and a fraternity bent on ego-driven neighbourhood supremacy. My motivation for seeing Bad Neighbour was purely driven by my loyalty to Seth Rogen and a… Read More

Upon seeing Sunshine on Leith, I was forced to take back my preconceived dread for musicals. This distaste was probably spawned after spending too many family Christmases with The Sound of Music blaring in the background. Whilst trying to maintain my masculine front, *cough*, I must admit that Sunshine on Leith kept me hungry for… Read More

It is no secret that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have a positive working relationship. The two have collaborated together on projects throughout the 2000’s including: Gangs of New York, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Aviator.
