Frozen (2013) Review


Disney films have gone through their ups and downs over the course of the past 76 years, having a an arguable fall off after Sleeping Beautyin 1959 before gaining new life in 1989 with The Little Mermaid and having a decade of more brilliant animated films. Mulanin 1998 marked the final fantastic musical that Disney would make until The Princess and the Frog in 2009 showed a turn for the better and a return to the Disney that was loved so dearly. This was followed by the immensely successful and brilliant Tangledin 2010. 2013 sees the release of Disney’s latest animated spectacular, Frozen, bringing with it not one but two Disney Princesses and perhaps forging the way for the next great Disney Renaissance.

Monsters University Review


Pixar films always hold a special place in the hearts of those that see them. Monsters, Inc. is one of those classics that people loved and the fact that a sequel, or to be more accurate, a prequel, exists is like a dream come true for some fans. Sure, it hasn’t garnered as much unadulterated glee from Ellen Degeneres as the existence of Finding Dory, but, whenever a Pixar film that isn’t Toy Story or Cars gets a sequel it is most definitely a big deal. Monsters University is Pixar’s most recent release. Does it live up to the gold standard set by the original, or does it flunk out of University faster than you can say Mike Wazowski?

Man of Steel (2013) Review


Superman has always been somewhat difficult to relate to, what with being almost indestructible and super powerful, and sometimes ridiculous, with his weakness to Kryptonite being of particular silliness. Man of Steel marks a new direction for Superman as he sheds the super nice guy image that previous films have attached to him and returns to something closer to the comic books from which he originates. With Zack Snyder (Of Watchmen, 300 and Sucker Punch fame) as the director and Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises) as producer, is Man of Steel a worthwhile reboot to the Superman franchise?

The Origins of Superman

The origin of Superman is known to many. Born on the distant planet of Krypton, Superman (Henry Cavill) is sent to Earth as a baby by his parents, Jor-El (Russel Crowe)and Lara-El…

Much Ado About Nothing (2013) Review


For the past few months I have been studying Shakespeare. At this point, I would like to think that I know my Shakespeare pretty well. One play that I feel I should know incredibly well is Much Ado About Nothing after seeing three different versions of the play across stage (A May Week Production at Magdalene College, Cambridge), screen (The Kenneth Branagh Film) or both (A filmed version of David Tennant and Catherine Tate’s production) in the past two weeks alone. Joss Whedon’s film adaptation of the play, which was shot at his home in the space of twelve days, is the latest version of Shakespeare’s comedy to be unleashed upon the world. Is it the best adaptation of the play so far or is it much ado about nothing?

Had this sent to me! So funny!!

BREAKING NEWS: South Wales Police have asked for witness’s to come forward regarding a brutal crime against 15 English men on a recent visit to Cardiff who were robbed of a Grand Slam they had come to collect and also had their chariot badly vandalised during the visit to the Welsh capital?

… Apparently this heinous crime was carried out by a gang of 15 Welsh guys dressed in bright red shirts in broad daylight in front of 75,439 people who gathered around the gang attack and just stood there cheering, clapping and singing hymns and arias as if they were encouraging the gang.

A police spokesmen for the South Wales force said this “This sort of attack is just sickening……..On­e of the victims was a young lad called Owen Farrell who was on his first trip to Wales and has been traumatised by the whole shocking experience and to make matters even worse his father was forced to watch the entire crime from start to finish and could not lift a finger to protect his son from the sickening and relentless battering meted out by the conspicuously dressed red shirted gang”.

The police spokesman continued, “We are following a number of leads and believe this crimson shirted gang may be linked to a similar attack in Twickenham a year ago”.
