House of Horror- A Review

9 November 2018

Willy Wonka famously starts the tour of his fantastical factory by announcing “We have so much time and so little to see!” One might think that after so many Halloweens at Kinkell Byre this statement may have carried over this year’s installment of the House of Horror Charity Gala. But Alas like Wonka himself, the […]

Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

20 October 2018

  The first thing that needs to be said in any review of The Rocky Horror Picture Show is that Tim Curry deserves an Oscar.   With that out of the way, we can move on to the second thing: even Tim Curry at his best just can’t beat the sheer joy of flinging a […]

Love Letter to: The Marvel Cinematic Universe.

16 October 2018

Just over ten years ago, Iron Man, (directed by John Favreau) arrived in cinemas. Despite the film being a hit with both audiences and critics, and possessing more deftness, wit and charm than most Superhero films that had come before it, one could have been forgiven for not registering it.

Trash Thursday: A-capella

4 October 2018

For an alternative view, check out Kyra Ho’s rebuttal article In Defence of a cappella  Pitch Perfect is a pretty good film, I’ll be the first to admit that. However, no matter how much love I have for that film and everyone in it I still find it truly impossible to enjoy a-cappella. From the […]

Love Letter To: Brooklyn 99

22 September 2018

  I understand that this is a weird time to write about this particular subject, that it might have been more pertinent to talk about the importance on Brooklyn 99 earlier this year, when it was dramatically cancelled and then uncancelled, or later, when season 6 comes out. But it was coming back to University […]

The Back Door of the Fringe

15 August 2018

On the third day of my Fringe internship, I quietly put my pass and keys in the drawer, left the building and sent a short email saying that I wasn’t coming back. I was working long hours photocopying press cuttings with virtually no breaks, and only free tickets for shows I had no time to […]

Your summer reading based on your major part 2

14 June 2018

Film: Major Must-Read: A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess) One of the most interesting adaptations from novel to film, A Clockwork Orange is written in a bizarre and linguistically unheard of style. Fantastic story that only emphasizes Kubrick’s brilliance in the transfer to film. Take A Break: Fight Club (Chuck Palahniuk) A fun read you will […]

In Praise of Eurovision

13 May 2018

  Last night was truly something else, maybe not the best Eurovision I’ve watched but it did give us some moments that will live on in my heart until next year.
