Disney’s G-Force; Irresponsible Filmmaking

Could films be encouraging and contributing to the neglect of household pets? That was a question that would once have made me roll my eyes. I have always been sceptical about the  impact that films have on their audiences and have never bought into the idea that violent film’s equal violent people and other similar notions. As an avid watcher of horror films since the … Continue reading Disney’s G-Force; Irresponsible Filmmaking

Paragraph Film Review: The Falling

In 1969, girls at an English girls’ school start fainting. All the time. With what is quite possibly the most annoying xylophone noise in the background the girls take it in turns to flop to the floor for no apparent reason, while Maisie Williams’ character fornicates with her brother. Possibly one of the strangest films I’ve seen in a long time, it’s about as boring … Continue reading Paragraph Film Review: The Falling

What I learned from getting, and losing, a good graduate job straight after uni

University years fly by, everyone says it but it’s hard to believe until you’re actually there at the end of your final year, faced with life post-university. It’s that time when anyone who actually moved away from home to go to uni starts to envy those who, for whatever reason, commuted from home because life for them seems so much less terrifying. Here you are, … Continue reading What I learned from getting, and losing, a good graduate job straight after uni

Why I don’t think feminists protesting at the Suffragette premiere is something to praise

It was all over the news recently; a group of feminists held a protest during the red carpet event for the newly released drama Suffragette. The group, who were allegedly protesting against domestic violence against women, threw themselves onto the red carpet and laid there in protest, basically throwing a childish tantrum at an otherwise classy event. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the hardships that … Continue reading Why I don’t think feminists protesting at the Suffragette premiere is something to praise

Why ‘Spy’ shows how women’s roles in film are changing

Paul Feig’s latest foray into female-centric comedy, Spy, is a comedy masterpiece full of feisty female characters. If you want to see gender roles turned on their heads look no further, for once the women take the lead and the men are pretty much just there to look good. Melissa McCarthy smashes stereotypes playing a feisty, sassy, sexy and intelligent female spy who outshines her male contemporaries … Continue reading Why ‘Spy’ shows how women’s roles in film are changing
