Disney animated films were very much a part of my childhood, so I always have intentions to watch these live-action adaptations which seemed to be all the rage recently.

Film Review: The Greatest Showman

I’ll admit: I’m biased. I love movie musicals. I love Hugh Jackman. I love Hugh Jackman’s singing. I love Zac Efron. I had already heard the soundtrack for this film and knew all the songs word-for-word before I even sat down at the cinema. So I went in, fully expecting to fall in love with the…

Currently Watching: Orange is the New Black (Part 2)

Currently on Season 4, Episode 6. So far, I’m really enjoying the other characters blossoming, especially the black and the Latina girls. They’re each so colourful and bubbly with an interesting — but not necessarily sympathetic (which is fine!
