Goodbye Girls

I was just seventeen when Girls first aired in 2012, and not even close to truly understanding half of the experiences the group of “self-obsessed”-twenty-somethings were exploring in each episode.

I’m now nearly twenty-three and those six years were defining ones for me, both in my life and in learning about myself, and during that time the show helped shape and inspire the woman I am today. Continue reading “Goodbye Girls”

Review: Sherlock – The Final Problem

So here it is, finally, my review of episode three. Hope you enjoy.

Series four of Sherlock concludes with dark secrets from the past, a threat from beyond the grave and a Saw-meets-Crystal Maze-style series of challenges for the Baker Street boys to wrap their heads around.

Post/Life Update

Hello, readers!

This is just a short note, firstly, to seriously apologise for the lack of activity, posts and comment replies for the past month.

University has been getting stressful with assignments and deadlines and preparations for the final film I’m working on as producer, and it’s been difficult to find the time and motivation to continue writing with all of that going on.

But, secondly, I want to let anyone still following the blog and reading my posts know that I will be making extra effort to post once a week from now on. Keeping this blog up and running and active is something I am determined to do. So, this week, I’ll be replying to any unanswered comments, posting the last of my Sherlock series four episode reviews (after much delay, I’m sorry!), and a review of Patriot’s Day or Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire by the end of the week.

Don’t forget me, and thank you for reading!

My trip to La La Land

You know sometimes you enter random competitions on Twitter and Facebook, and the like?

And you know how you never seem to win any of them?

Do you then start wondering why you ever even bother? Because you never even win anyway. Ever!

Well, last week I was thanking O2 Priority because I actually won something! Two tickets to a preview of Damien Chazelle’s new film, La La Land, to be exact! And yes, before you ask, I have pretty much had the soundtrack on repeat since seeing it, and I’m sure you will too. Continue reading “My trip to La La Land”

Review: Sherlock – The Six Thatchers

Last Sunday, one of my favourite TV shows finally returned for its fourth season, and it seriously delivered one hell of an episode! That’s right, Sherlock is off the plane, and back in London. Shock blankets at the ready, this episode is a thrill ride!
