The Review: Dual Fix Foamer by Envy

Chocolate and Shoe-aholics Unite

THEY say that chocolate makes everything in life better, and I have to admit that so far I haven’t found any evidence to the contrary. It seems Cadbury also agree ...

The Film Review: Edge of Tomorrow

AS high concepts go, Edge of Tomorrow has one that is delightfully simple. In the near future, a recently demoted soldier named Cage (Tom Cruise) finds himself doomed to repeat the same battle over and over again, waking up to restart at the exact same moment every time he is killed. Not only must he more »

Waking up in Vegas

MOST of us dream of going to Las Vegas one day, but when it comes to Sin City, is there a way to do it on the cheap? Well, aside from the wad of cash you might drop on a spangly dress, plastic heels and a feather boa (OK – that may just be Britney more »

The Review: Rouge Edition Velvet Bourjois lipsticks

MATTE liquid lipsticks have been elbowing their way into the limelight over the last 12 months and I couldn’t be happier. Long-lasting bright pops of colour that don’t rub off onto your clothes?

The Film Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past

ON paper, the combination of the old X-Men (that were in established way back in Bryan Singer’s 2000 film) and the new (the cast of the Matthew Vaughn directed prequel X-Men: First Class) is an enticing prospect. The thought of two different generations of X-Men and, in some cases, renditions of both the older and more »

The Film Review: Godzilla

RATHER than comparisons to the widely panned debacle that was Roland Emmerich’s 1998 effort of the same name, Gareth Evan’s version of this Toho classic bears more similarity and is a logical step up from his previous film (and directorial debut) Monsters. In Monsters, the creatures in question were only properly seen in the final more »

Where’s The Love For Wonder Woman?

FOR whatever reason, it’s become apparent that Wonder Woman (who will be referred to as WW moving forward) just doesn’t get the love she deserves. The thing is, the world did once have a love affair with the legendary D.C. Comics character. Back in the 1970s, she was at the height of her popularity thanks more »

The Film Review: Transcendence

IT IS a shame that for such an interesting premise (a dying man’s consciousness gets merged with an experimental AI in an effort to save him), the end result is somewhat underwhelming. The problem with Wally Pfister’s directorial debut (most known for his work as the DP on several Christopher Nolan films) is that it more »

The Film Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

YOU’D think that with all the set-up out of the way, this sequel to the 2012 reboot of the Spider-Man franchise would be a lot more focussed and succinct. Well it is and it isn’t. The strained on/off relationship between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) gets much of the attention (and more »
