    If you haven’t heard of Tattoo London by now then you must have nodded off in the city that never sleeps!

    I arrived at Levi Roots Smokehouse at lunchtime but barely a few steps inside the door those appetite-tingling Caribbean aromas convinced me that I was in the mood for more than just lunch.

    Posted in: Books, Reviews

    The second novel by self-confessed political revolutionary and materials scientist Derek Bates sets an intriguing platform for uncensored discussion about church, state and economics. The main protagonist Jake Dearsey is a journalist with a political conscience whose humanity-focused take on capitalism and government causes him to lock horns with his editor (perhaps a thread of […]

    Time Run is a high-tempo and cinematic live gaming experience for groups of 3-5 people, a great outing for work colleagues or pals, recently launched in Hackney’s London Fields.

    After 15 years the sequel to the cult classic has finally arrived. Many fans are scared it won’t hold up as many sequels do, but it does. Zoolander 2 is a silly film that will make you laugh out loud. The expectations were high and unless you rigidly compare it to Zoolander 1, you will […]

    Spotlight tells the true story behind one of the Boston Globe’s biggest news stories, which caused a massive public outcry still going strong today. The film goes behind how journalists at the Globe uncovered an intense year-long scandal of child molestation within the Catholic Church and the consequential decade-long cover-up. The film has been nominated […]

  • The Hateful Eight
    The Hateful Eight
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    A film that feels more like a play than a film, but with the special effects plays could never feature. The sets are minimal, a carriage and the interior of a wooden frontier hut. Not many directors can hold an audience’s attention for three hours with dialogue and blood alone, yet not many filmmakers write […]

    Could 2016 be the year that Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar? Anyone who has seen his latest, The Revenant, seems to think he stands a very strong chance. The Revenant, which translates roughly as someone who returns after death or a long absence, is DiCaprio’s first collaboration with notoriously-method director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu, who […]

    In a week where black actors were snubbed at the Oscars and actor Idris Elba addressed MPs over the lack of diversity on television, two black British actors stole the show in ITV’s £17million TV series Beowulf. Strangely enough, the drama is based on an Anglo-Saxon poem written in 700 AD when black numbers in […]
