The Seagull: Film Review

The Seagull is one of Anton Chekhov’s most famous plays and it has been adapted many times, so I feel ashamed to say that I’ve never seen a version of it, on stage or screen, so I couldn’t possibly vouch for how this new take, directed by Michael Mayer and adapted by Stephen Karam, holds up against others.

Was The Handmaid’s Tale season two a good idea?

The first season of The Handmaid’s Tale was based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, in its entirety, so when the second season was announced (which wasn’t a surprise given its success), people wondered if it would be a good idea to extend it beyond the source material. Now it has come to its conclusion, I can give my opinion.

High-Rise: Film Review

high1

I rarely come out of a movie with such an overwhelming feeling of disappointment. With most films, if I don’t love them, I just have feelings of “it was okay” or “didn’t really enjoy it” rather than genuine dislike – but High-Rise has managed it. I did not like it one bit and I find that odd considering most people I know raved about, Tom Hiddleston is a fave and I had wanted to see this since the London Film Festival in October.

Truth: Film Review

truth1

I love a journalism drama and two come along within the space of a couple of months – Spotlight and now Truth. Good news is that they are both brilliant, but I’m totally biased as a journalist myself. I have not been able to stop talking about Truth since I saw it and I have just ordered the book it’s based on – not many films can inspire me to do that.

Tony Awards 2015: Best & Worst Dressed

yes1

I don’t usually cover the Tony Awards when I do my red carpet outfit ratings but so many dresses caught my eye this year that I simply couldn’t resist. There weren’t many bad ones actually – I’m mainly here to big up the beautiful dresses – including one of my favourites, Jennifer Lopez. I’m used to her flaunting her body and wearing skimpy/barely-there clothes that this was a breath of fresh air. And what a gorgeous dress too! She looks stunning. There was some other amazing looks too, check out my slideshows to find out who made the cut.
