Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

The third instalment of the franchise is a decent film, but perhaps my least favourite so far. While the hype of Mockingjay: Part 1 was always going to be hard to live up to, certain parts feel a bit wooden and dragged out. Note: It’s better when to hint at the idea rather than be […]

Top 3 Worst Christmas Movies

3. Jingle All The Way I’ll admit, this move wasn’t as heinous to my pre-pubescent mind on the first viewing. That said, I was still watching Barney and had yet to develop full common sense. Even with your brain switched to low-function, the last minute quest of two dads to find a toy on Christmas […]

Life Is Not a Disney Movie

As we edge closer towards the holiday season, we welcome back with open arms those treats that we can only enjoy once a year, lest we resemble Augustus Gloop.

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Do you remember your first sex talk? Unlikely, as most Irish kids were awkwardly thrust a book entitled ‘What’s Happening to Me?’, or something along those lines. Translation: Read this and please don’t ask me anything. However, there is a revolution bubbling whereby young, hip parents are veering away from infantilising their child with ‘wee-wee’ […]

Rest in Peace, Rom-Com

Are you still in mourning? It is with a heavy heart that many bid farewell to the iconic noughties, the era of jelly sandals and body glitter. One thing that was salvaged from the wreckage however, was the legacy of truly terrible romantic comedies. Our loyalty to Sandra Bullock was unwavering and we welcomed her […]
