Every so often a pop talent comes along who blows everyone else out of the water. Bubblegum-haired bombshell Ashley O has had Kylie quaking and Shania shaking ever since she burst onto the scene earlier this month with self-referential pop bangers ‘On A Roll’ and ‘Right Where I Belong’.  They’ve become an instant hit online, […]

Chucky takes a stab at Remake-a-palooza with a violent disappointment. Before I start, I wanted to link to this article I have had bookmarked for about 7 months now. The writer, JD Lifshiftz, writes about a movie theatre on Long Island that lets 12-year old kids see R-Rated movies like Seed of Chucky. I have […]

Modern dystopia has been branded with the unfortunate presumption of poor writing and thoughtless concepts, and this is mostly down to the recent decline of quality in episodes of British Netflix original Black Mirror. The show’s format of disconnected plots leads itself to diversity in quality, but its recent season five has been met with […]

What is this? She writes again? Let’s not call this writing just yet but yes, I have some shit I gotta say. I watched Black Mirror’s latest season last week and I’ve been sort of pondering a review ever since but I haven’t managed to put into words exactly just how I feel about it […]

What am I buggering on about this week? This week we’ve seen Slack join ranks of tech startups on the stock market (1). It’s price surged immediately after listing and remained up, a distinct difference to the Uber IPO in May and the Lyft IPO in March (2). Perhaps due to the state of Uber […]

Through its unconventional ideas, storytelling and style Black Mirror has become a worldwide sensation and my favourite TV show. For many years Mad Men was the pinnacle for me but as soon as I watched Black Mirror’s first episode, The National Anthem, I was hooked and have loved it ever since. It has revolutionised the […]

We Minored in Film

MGM fast-tracked its Child’s Play remake into production less than a year ago, failed to get franchise creator Don Mancini’s blessing, and had to move forward with a Chucky voiced by someone other than Brad Dourif. They cast queen-of-the-deadpan Aubrey Plaza to improbably play a single mom, and then once filming wrapped they put out […]

I’m going to blame a Charlie Brooker-style technology glitch on my review of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which I referred to in the body of the text as “Dark Mirror” for, I don’t know, six or seven times. Too many times to laugh it off as a typo, at any rate. You won’t see my gaff […]

There’s a new documentary about Bill Wyman hitting theaters, and contrary to expectations, perhaps, it’s not a silent movie. But it is titled “The Quiet One,” in deference to the legendary bass player’s reputation as the most reserved of the Rolling Stones, an image he thinks he merited only by being pitted against some of […]

Throughout the process of the FMP, from creating the concept, all the way to dealing with the post production, it has been fairly stressful. The first step, creating the concept, was fairly difficult due to the limits of the different topics we were given and the ambiguity of it all. In the end I had […]
