The Jungle Book (2016) Film Review

Mowgli is Back!! The Jungle Book (2016) has arrived!! It was way back in 1967 that Disney released their original animated classic. 49 years is definitely enough time to wait before exploring this much loved Rudyard Kipling story, through another’s eyes. And more than a few people have thought this, because Warner Bros also have a film in post production, and scheduled for 2018. What have Disney done differently? You would be forgiven for thinking Jon Favreau‘s Jungle Book (2016) is a live action film. But in essence it’s an animation. From the opening scenes we are treated to...

Batman vs Superman – Film Review Migration

Of all the superhero films of the the last 10 years Batman Vs Superman has had the most scepticism surrounding it. The most common statement I’ve heard is ‘why are they even doing it?! Batman wouldn’t even have a chance!’. But the key, is in the second part of the title, Dawn of Justice. DC comics have some major competition in the Marvel Avengers series and they have to do something to step up to the plate. Otherwise they’ll be left by the wayside. Batman Vs Superman starts off well, we get straight into a recap of where our...

Its been a 3 year wait for the 2nd instalment of the Marvel Avengers films, but that wait is finally over. Marvel’s Avengers – Age of Ultron is released on Thursday and a legion of comic book fans are about to go into a frenzy.

From the moment the film starts we are plunged into the action and our favourite heroes are doing what they do best, with...

Frozen Fever – Ana’s Birthday

Last week I was lucky enough to go to a screening of Disney’s Cinderella. This meant that I got to see Frozen Fever, the new short from Disney Animation Studios.

Now its easier to please an audience watching a short because you have less time to lose their attention, but it also means there is less time to tell a new story, remind...

Nicki Minaj – The Pinkprint – Album Review

The Pinkprint is Nicki Minaj’s 3rd album and it opens with quite a subdued feeling. ‘All things go’ is the opener and the melancholic story telling continues along the same vein into the excellent ‘I Lied’ and ‘The Crying Game’. Nicki seems to have some feelings she needs to get of her chest, and this is the first time I’ve heard her go a little deeper, emotionally. Don’t get me wrong though, there are 22 tracks(yeah that’s right you get your money’s worth) and it’s no Sam Smith tear jerker. If you are looking for her to spit some of...
