“Beyond this fence is no longer the territory of Texas.

Review: LA LA LAND

Film | 12/09/2016

La La Land is a film from the time movies forgot – the classic jazz and romanticism of technicolor in the hustle and bustle of modern LA. A challenge if ever there was, but one that director Damien Chazelle accomplishes without bordering on the Grease like cheese factor. As the opening scene commenced and brightly dressed …keep reading

Glamour Puss | 14/06/2016

Review: The Nice Guys

Film | 02/06/2016

Taking us back to a time of disco, sex and scandal, ‘The Nice Guys’ is a refreshing twist on a genre time forgot. It’s been a while since a high quality comedy action flick graced our screens and for some time it’s seemed like the classic buddy cop genre was dead. But Shane Black and …keep reading

Munchin' N Brunchin' | 18/04/2016

Bangin’ Butties – Super Staff – Over Priced Alcohol So the first time I encountered this place on Church Street (despite passing it loads and never going in) was for a job interview, not always the premise for a return trip. However I simply couldn’t wait to get my chops round their all day breakfast …keep reading

Review: Brunch @Boston Tea Paty

Munchin' N Brunchin' | 18/04/2016

Sexy Muffins – Super Soft Drinks – Soggy Scrambled Eggs Despite the memories of my sticky floored occasionally  sick scented student union, I’ve learnt that long ques outside a big spacious place generally means good things in store!

Review: Brunch @ The Plough Harborne

Munchin' N Brunchin' | 18/04/2016

Filling – Fresh – Fabulous Service I should probably point out that I’ve never been a massive eater, more of a grazer but I like my food and if there’s one thing I like a LOT it’s a good brekkie or as the trendier adult term goes, ‘Brunch.’ Even as a young child the highlight …keep reading

Almost two years on from Man of Steel, Henry Cavill as the chiseled red caped crusader is back and despite those dreamy blue eyes, considered quite the terrorist by none other than Batman himself.
