Hereditary

Hereditary (2018) IMDB Synopsis After the family matriarch passes away, a grieving family is haunted by tragic and disturbing occurrences, and begin to unravel dark secrets. *Spoilers* Eep.

Princess Cyd (Film) Review

The last film of Feminist February and as far as I’m concerned we’ve signed off with a bang. A slow and subtle Indie bang but a bang nonetheless. And, last week’s bland sniffle-fest aside, I think this month has been a success. *Spoilers* Princess Cyd (2017) IMDB Synopsis Eager to escape life with her depressive single father, 16-year-old athlete Cyd Loughlin visits her novelist … Read More Princess Cyd (Film) Review

Minimalism?

I’ve had an epiphany. Last night I was talking to my new cool work friend Chloe about her beautiful Instagram feed (how modern!) and I asked her how the background in all her photographs is always so appealing. Like my background always has gerbils and shoes and old cups of tea lying around – how does one create the perfect pure light and airy … Read More Minimalism?

All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins: A Halloween Weekend Update

A lazy Sunday post for a lazy Sunday day. We had a blast last night with my brother and sister-in-law at The Chambers Halloween party in Folkestone – and now G and I are nestled back home in our PJs. I’m watching a couple of films for homework and later we’ll get stuck in to Stranger Things 2 (finally!). Which is the perfect end to the … Read More All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins: A Halloween Weekend Update

Push

This past month has not been good. My adjustment in going from one thing to another has been so much harder than I imagined it would be. I feel insecure and foolish a lot of the time, regretful even and I feel terrified. But that surely has everything to do with change and being in a fresh environment than it does the actual environment, … Read More Push

On Sunday I’m going to see my best friend from my college days and I can’t bloody wait. She was my #1 partner in crime and we have so many … Read More Babies and Baptisms*

Beginners (Film) Review

Jill picked another Ewan McGregor movie for this week (with a fair amount of encouragement from me), so sue us. We decided he was infinitely more appealing than Pinhead right now (and honestly, unless we go back to #3 in the series, I’m pretty sure the PH we know and love has been replaced by another actor and I don’t know how I feel about … Read More Beginners (Film) Review
