Home (2015)

For as long as I can remember, DreamWorks has played third fiddle to the unstoppable forces of cinematic nature that are Disney and Pixar. Though ever present and always offering up enjoyable and well received pictures like Megamind, Madagascar and the early instalments of the Shrek series, the studio sits very much in third place…

TV Corner: House Of Cards (Season 3)

I held back for a couple of weeks before writing this season review, keeping in mind the fact that most House Of Cards viewers, unlike myself, would sensibly pace themselves to both savour the show and maintain the order of their personal and professional lives.

TV Corner: Broadchurch (Season 2)

In today’s culture of Netflix and binge watching, it is very rare that I get the opportunity to watch a television series in the weekly serial manner that it was intended. In fact, in the case of Broadchurch, the first season of ITV’s hit detective drama seemed to completely pass me by and it was…

Cake (2014)

Believe it or not, it has been twenty one years since Jennifer Aniston became a household name as the fashion obsessed Rachel Greene in Friends, a television show that shaped a generation and influenced media and pop culture arguably more than any other before it. Since the show’s ending in 2004, Aniston has been something…
