10 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching HBO’s ‘Euphoria’

There is a new show in town and it is commonly known as ‘Euphoria’ and I am just slightly obsessed with it! The new HBO Drama created by Sam Levinson, stars Zendaya, Jacob Elordi and Hunter Schafer. It also features a stunning supporting cast of actors, which for many, is their first mainstream appearance! The show deals with a multitude of themes throughout its 8 episode run, including but not limited to; sexual repression, violence, substance abuse, depression & other mental illnesses and gender identity. It is a groundbreaking and confronting series for many reasons and breaks a lot of traditional barriers that previously produced teenage-themed shows did not engage with.

My Thoughts On Instagram Removing The ‘Like’ Feature?

Hello all,

Happy Thursday! It is unlike me to post a blog post on a Thursday. However, I thought I would just do a stream-of consciousness and blog about the new update that was introduced for trial in Australia this morning. It has been quite a contentious update which has had many people either wanting it gone as soon as possible or wanting it to become a permanent feature. My thoughts are quite mixed and I want to cover as many bases as possible in this post and hope I can do just that.

Movie & TV Wrap-up: June 2019

Today I am coming to you with my movie and TV wrap-up for June 2019, which is about a week behind us at this point. The reason I am writing this post so late in the next month is because as you probably saw, I was in New Zealand from the 22nd of June to the 5th July! Onto the movies and TV shows though. This past month was a great month for the big and small screen, which produced some really engaging, emotionally powerful and fun productions! It was definitely far better than last months catastrophe-of-a-month. I won’t ramble on about my pointless generalised opinions though – instead I will delve right into the juicy opinions on this months best and worst of film and TV.

Movie Review: Avengers Endgame

The day of April 24th finally came around and boy was it an emotional one! I hope that you are making your way to this review after actually watching the movie as you read this, otherwise you WILL be spoiled. I want to break this up into a few parts; starting with the plot and my thoughts on it and then go into the bad and the good, with my final rating of course being at the end. Before I continue, I would just like to say that this movie was everything I could possibly want and more. It was a beautiful ending to an incredible era in film. The end of the Avengers marks the biggest moment in cinematic history for me personally in my 18 years of life. It was extremely emotional to see most of these characters for the last time, and I honestly am so proud to be a fan of such an incredible story. I also consider this the best superhero movie I have ever seen! However, I still did have some minor and major issues with parts of this movie, which I will discuss below! Here are my thoughts on ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry

Music. The way we communicate our deepest emotions in a small but impactful way. This is probably the most accessible and common form that we see ourselves represented on a daily basis; through song. Music manifests countless emotions through lyrics and composition, which will resonate and affect each person in a different way, depending on their own set of circumstances at that current point in time. The songs I have compiled for this blog post are those which seek to bring out an emotional response of sadness or reflection upon events or emotions that one may come across in life. These songs present themes that are very real, relevant and relatable. Continue reading “Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry”

Lets Talk: Diversity at the 91st Academy Awards

In the words of Best Actress recipient at the 90th Academy Awards, Frances McDormand “I’ve got some things to say!“. This is a topic area I am extremely passionate about and I certainly have a lot of robust thoughts and opinions to express! Lets start with unpacking what diversity truely means in this context. Today, we are living in a multicultural world where an abundance of beautiful and diverse cultures, people and ideas co-exist and are being exposed to the public daily, than every before, rather than being omitted and swept under the rug. While there is a large amount of work to still be done, we are certainly on the right track in Hollywood! Continue reading “Lets Talk: Diversity at the 91st Academy Awards”
