Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore – Marlon Williams ft. Aldous Harding

This gallery contains 1 photo.

After recently discovering the Kiwi brilliance that is Aldous Harding, I soon stumbled across this duet with another Kiwi icon, Marlon Williams.

It’s a highly melancholy song, sung in a tone of despair. But it’s so dreamy and relaxing to listen to. There’s no animosity in the song, it just sounds like pure surrender to a really bad situation. I think it’s a break up song… Continue reading

My Favourite Scene: Good Will Hunting

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I adore this movie, particularly because of Robin Williams’ performance as a shrink named Sean. He has many lovely quotes, but this speech is my favourite. It’s about living life and having first-hand experiences. I think how Robin Williams encapsulates the depths of sadness that Sean has after losing his wife is tear-jerking… Continue reading

Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This gallery contains 4 photos.

The 1991 Disney animation of Beauty & the Beast is a movie that I love dearly. So while I had major reservations about this remake – mostly because of Emma Watson – I was quietly optimistic about it. Perhaps today’s technology will enhance the magic…

But no. It doesn’t. This remake was appalling, and my reluctance to watch it was proven understandable.

The casting was totally wrong. Right off the bat Emma Watson – or should I say Hermione Granger – was a problem. While she fits the physicality of Belle, her same-old expression of open-mouthed, furrow-browed facials were tiring to say the least… Continue reading

Seven Pounds

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Seven Pounds is the film you watch when you’re depressed and have no intention of wanting to feel better. It’s heavy and tells a story of an absolute tragedy.

It’s about an IRS agent Ben (Will Smith) who is overwhelmed and broken with guilt after accidentally killing seven people – including his wife – when driving recklessly. He was wealthy and had everything, he felt indestructible and took what he had for granted… Continue reading

Left Handed Kisses – Andrew Bird ft. Fiona Apple

This gallery contains 2 photos.

I adore this song. It would be nothing without Fiona Apple though. She brings all the raw emotion to it.

What begins as an internal conflict of Andrew Bird’s, soon becomes a quarrel between lovers as Fiona Apple’s growling vocals retort. I think it’s about Andrew’s conflict over writing a love song – does he believe everything happens for a reason? Or is love logical?

It soon takes the role of two lovers having an argument. Continue reading

Parental Guidance

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Previously titled Us & Them, this is a whole-heartedly, all-American family film. Therefore, you will either laugh from beginning to end, or you won’t be able to avoid cringing at the cheese.

I personally enjoyed Parental Guidance – I could appreciate the family-fun.

It’s about grandparents Artie and Dianne (Billy Crystal and Bette Midler)… Continue reading
