  • Sweet Like Fudge

    Sweet Like Fudge

    The first impression of The Blind Side from its 150-second long trailer is certainly underwhelming, with its seemingly Sweet Like Fudge plot, mushy dialogue and yawnfest of a story. Even its promotional poster featuring a petite woman gently guiding a giant of a man would draw a puzzled look from most people. But any expectations you have are…

    After 40 years in the music business, multi-Grammy-Award-winning Nile Rodgers may be best known as a disco icon, but the influential American producer-guitarist is very relevant to much younger listeners, having performed with and or produced for the likes of Adam Lambert, Daft Punk (‘Get Lucky’) and Lady Gaga.

    Redoubled

    The dreams, fantasies and burdens that one often experiences are redoubled when you question the past and doubt the future.

  • Legendary Falls Short

    Legendary Falls Short

    Pandora’s box, evil fantasy creatures, ancient secret societies – all of these elements are fundamental to any mythology geek’s wet dream. And the storyline of Legendary, peppered with truckloads of these, could have been the best thing that has ever happened to geeks since Richmond Lattimore’s The Odyssey of Homer. Regrettably, Legendary is not a book. It’s a First-Person Shooter (FPS) game,…

    Soothing Soles

    Blisters, corns and calluses; words that bring a spasm to your spine, and spell never ending agony.
