Gravity – A film by Alfonso Cuarón

Space, its normally pitched as the final frontier, but how’s this for a reality check? Space, the most beautiful and at the same time the most deadly place you would ever want to be left. Gravity is probably every astronaut’s worst nightmare, and if you are all paid up to go with Branson you might wanna give this a miss! For the rest of us paupers though, it’s about as close as we’ll ever come to experiencing life above earth’s atmosphere, so we recommend you shell out and get the full IMAX 3D experience. Visually this film is incredible, from beginning to end Gravity evokes that...

Drake – Nothing was the same

As usual the hype and anticipation surrounding the release of Drake‘s 3rd studio album(Nothing was the same)  is everywhere, but with minimal pre-release leakage and only 3 tracks having received radio play so far, what’s the verdict?

  When I first heard that Justin was releasing 20/20 Experience part 2 I have to admit like everyone I was a little annoyed. The first half was only unleashed upon our timberlake starved ears 6 months ago, It stinks of a marketing ploy to capitalise on the public’s hunger! And the fact that the first half was more a chicken sandwich than the home made burger we ordered leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Anyway enough of the food references down to the music. We open the with a phat funky groove that sets the tone for what’s to come, lustful, animalistic, pop that...

World War Z – Film Review

I’m not the biggest fan of the zombie genre. Sorry if I offend but once you’ve seen a couple, you’ve kind of seen them all. This may be why War War Z has not really been pitched as a zombie flick and its a clever move. From 5 mins in you better make sure you are strapped in, the action begins, and it’s all stations go from here on. Brad Pitt plays a retired UN employee (Gerry Lane) who gets sucked back into service to help save the world from a pandemic that is set to destroy humanity. It...

Iron Man 3 – Film Review

  Back in 2008 Marvel introduced us to ‘Phase 1’ of it’s Avengers initiative with the birth of Iron man. Since then we have had 5 more Marvel movies and been immersed in a world of superheros that has become one of the most successful movie franchises of all time. So, where do we go from here?!! Well Obviously ‘Phase 2’ which again starts with everybody’s favourite billionaire playboy philanthropist  Tony Stark. Its always hard when a movie has 3 in the title. What is there to say that you missed in the first 2 films. (Classic examples of...
