The Paperboy – review

The Paperboy directed by Lee Daniels, his previous movie before this was the critically lauded Precious, The Paperboy however has been critically maligned. The story is another southern(ish) gothic tale of horrible people, steamy weather and funny accents. Set in the 60s, there is a

Odd Couple – Lady Gaga and an attractive actor you’ve never heard of

To be truthful it is difficult to imagine anyone actually dating Lady Gaga.  For someone that considers wearing bubbles, a TV for a hat and  a grubby looking dude as valid fashion choices is sure to be beyond high maintenance.  When you are channeling Cher

Thor The Dark World – review

The plot to Thor The Dark World involves something to do with realms, the Convergence and Aether. Its neither interesting nor makes much sense. All you need to know is that Thor is back on his home turf this time round and his hair looks

Guilty Pleasures – Sucker Punch

 Hated by the majority, loved by a few. Some say Sucker Punch was ‘critically polarising’, I think less that that, it has been one of the  most negatively reviewed movies from the past 5 years. It was pretty much hated by everyone, apart from me.
