It doesn’t matter if you’re a revolutionary scientist who’s theory on human evolution has changed the way humankind views life on earth,…Read More »

(Movie review) ‘Spotlight’ is Journalism 101

Monday, 15 February 2016 | Written by
ensemble

This is journalism – tenacious, thorough, uncompromising, brave. All too often we see bias and/or reluctance in our news, but true journalistic integrity is not being manipulated by power or profit or readership levels. True journalism is not afraid to speak the truth, not just when but especially when the truth is unpleasant. In ‘Spotlight’, we see all of that…Read More »

Smallville: it all began in a small Kansas town filled with cows, corn, and a disturbing amount of “meteor freaks” roaming what otherwise would be the dullest place to be. Of course, the handsome and naïve blue-eyed boy in the Kent farm made all the difference, and we loyal fans watched him grow up in ten seasons into the legend…Read More »

‘The Revenant’ is survival porn

Totally worth watching on the big screen.

Revenant – (noun) a person who has returned, especially supposedly from the dead. (Google def.) All the movies that have ever said that revenge is not a worthwhile endeavor have never met Hugh Glass. That man has done things – impossible things – in the name and with the power of revenge that would make any Sith Lord proud. In…Read More »

Chock full of technical jargon but with an approachable, strong, relevant undercurrent.

‘The Big Short’ is an A-grade film!

Chock full of technical jargon but with an approachable, strong, relevant undercurrent.

I am embarrassed to say that, being the business graduate that I am, even I couldn’t follow half of the things that were going in The Big Short. It’s such an incomprehensibly technical script; which is great for authenticity’s sake, but will no doubt be daunting to non-finance viewers! But it’s like what Ryan Gosling’s character said, “Does it make…Read More »

‘Macbeth’ captures the spirit of Shakespeare

The infamous prophecy.

Man, what a doozey. I’m not going to pretend that I can fully understand Shakespeare. His words are too poetic for my inadequate mind to grasp, but the film makes it so that I could absorb enough of it from the context. Both in setting, imagery and the acting, one could better appreciate Macbeth’s spellbinding dialogue. I…honestly didn’t know Macbeth.…Read More »
