The Entertainment World in 2018

Justin Timberlake starts the year off with a new album. Justified – still his best! The Golden Globes go all black for the Times Up movement which stands against the recent harassment sagas that have rocked Hollywood, and demands equality. Here’s my opinion. Though I know this stuff does happen, and I believe most of these women’s stories, wasn’t it renowned that a lot of women slept with directors, producers,

My 2018

It was so hard getting into the new year. With the craziness of the wedding only a couple of months before, and then coming back from our honeymoon straight into the Christmas period, it was exhausting trying to adjust and find normality. I started to bring forward old memories of always feeling left out and unworthy and unwanted. I’ve never been good enough for people and that memory was beginning

FILM REVIEW:: A STAR IS BORN

It’s undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies this year. The wait is over and A Star Is Born, quite literally. Bradly Cooper’s directing debut is worth shining a light on and the performances are even more worth speaking about. A Star Is Born is yet another remake of the 1937 classic. Won’t lie. Haven’t bothered to watch the original and it’s first two remakes. With all due respects, it

GIG REVIEW:: Katy Perry Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

Large props and loads of colour; that’s what a Katy Perry show looks like. It’s also theatrical and a stand-up comedy show. Just add her hits and a few (shamefully admitting) lesser known songs from the Witness album, and that’s the show we were blessed with that August night in Melbourne. I won’t lie, I was really concerned about seeing Katy Perry live because most of her live performances I’ve

GIG REVIEW:: Bruno Mars Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

If anyone can come remotely close to being as entertaining on stage as the great MJ, I’d point straight to Bruno Mars. Everything I’ve seen him do live through my various screens, has left me in absolute awe. His in-sync moves, his vocal range, his charisma, they are all now signature to him, so that way, he is able to put on a show that sets him apart from the

FILM REVIEW:: BEFORE I WAKE

I just took the time to watch the 2016 horror film Before I Wake. I love a good horror film, but I never thought I would call one ‘sweet’. Before I Wake entraps both elements of heart-warming and stuff that nightmares are made of. Unfortunately, I may need to reveal the ending to explain why this is a sweet horror film, but there are plenty of twists and jaw-dropping moments

FILM REVIEW:: READY PLAYER ONE

An overload of references from almost every 80s and 90s pop culture game, movie and comic consumes this childish movie made for adults. But what really sets the tone for this film (spoiler coming), is the hidden agenda presented by Spielberg and co. Get off your ass, get your head out of the screens and live in reality. I question whether a pretty awesome concept should have been mixed with a

FILM REVIEW:: BLACK PANTHER

Wakanda Forever. The cry will resonate in movie history for years to come. Black Panther is not only a film. It’s not only an action film. It’s not only a superhero film. It’s a movement. It’s a force. It’s a triumph. We are told the history of Wakanda early in the film, and how the vibranium that oozes in their soil came to be. Vibranium is the strongest metal in the

FILM REVIEW:: THE GREATEST SHOWMAN

I really didn’t know what I was in for going into The Greatest Showman. The modern music infused into a New York City, where the country was going through the financial crisis in the late 1830s, made me almost cringe at how that would work. I heard the songs first. All of them. I loved them all. I just wasn’t sure how they would sit in a film that’s meant

FILM REVIEW:: JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

So, there’s a remake and a reboot. A remake is taking a classic, copy-pasting the story line, but remixing a few bits here and there. Ultimately, the film is exactly the same. I am happy to announce that what we have here is a reboot; a stand alone film which has a similar concept and shares the exact same title as a timeless classic. The reason it makes me so
