August 16, 2015

I said it on Twitter and I will say it again here- I have never been so unprepared for a film’s plot progression in my life as I was for My Ordinary Love Story.

August 16, 2015

When the first Hitman movie was released in 2007, it received an abysmal 14% on Rotten Tomatoes. Somewhat surprisingly, Fox decided to try again with the brand and announced a “reboot” of the series in 2013.

Theatre Review: Hamlet – Heath Ledger Theatre, Perth (touring Nationally until 6th December)

August 16, 2015

Of all of Shakespeare’s works, Hamlet is perhaps his most oft-performed and perhaps most recognised (of the tragedies at least).
