Girls Season 3 Finale: Two Plane Rides

Girls Season 3 Finale: Two Plane Rides

 So that’s it folks, Girls is over for another season and what a fabulous finale! Of course when the end credits rolled, the pouty bottom lip came out and I automatically pulled a bit of a strop, but all good season finales make you do that right? So let’s recap. The beginning of the episode starts off like something out of a horror movie as scary Caroline, Adam’s bizarre sister, emerges in Hannah’s doorway in a victorian style night gown. Turns out she’s been living with Laird since she vanished and she is now pregnant with his child. That’s enough to make even the strongest souls shudder uncontrollably with fear/disgust that I...

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann is famous for his fantastical set and costume design. Satine dazzled us in the glitzy Moulin Rouge and two star crossed lovers broke hearts in the mesmerising Romeo and Juliet. His turn at directing F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel feels like his pièce-de-résistance as he goes all out to conjure up something so breath-takingly extravagant it will leave you wishing you were around in the 1920’s to soak it all up for real, although I don’t think the music would be provided by Jay-Z. Leonardo Di Caprio plays the elusive Jay Gatsby with every ounce of charm he emulates in the novel. He is handsome, rich and able...

Girls Season 3 Episode 10: Role Play

This weeks episode of Girls leaves behind dead Nana Flo and tackles the much more important issue of Adam and Hannah’s relationship. Hannah was warned in previous episodes by a small handful of people that Adam would become a nightmare since being cast in a Broadway play. Up until now, Hannah had brushed off such nonsense, knowing full well that Adam wouldn’t be so predictable, alas, it would see the inevitable has happened.  He isn’t exactly being a nightmare per say, but their relationship is most definitely strained. It begins as Hannah gets absolutely annihilated at a bar with her friends from work, she very...

Girls Season 3 Episode 9: “Flo”

Girls Season 3 Episode 9: “Flo”

One of the things I love about Girls is that it explores multiple facets of early adult life. This week is no different as Hannah learns that her Nana is dying. He mum calls her while she is out and tells her she needs to get to the hospital because she is going to die of pneumonia. The fact that Lorraine (Hannah’s Mum) is so certain that Nana Flo is going to die is weird enough and it is this certainty that sets the rest of the episode in motion. We meet Hannah’s two head strong Aunts; Margot and Sissy. The three sisters couldn’t be more different, Margot is a strong, free spirited Christian, Sissy is a career drive, money grabbing...

Movie Review: Now You See Me

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me is a comedic thriller following the mystical escapades of four undeniably brilliant undiscovered street magicians as they are sucked into a dark and dangerous scheme at the hands of an unknown entity. The Four Horseman, as they are known consist of J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) who are all brought together by an unknown hoodied person who attends each of their incredibly impressive shows and secretly offers them a tarot card with instructions offering the notion that they have ‘been chosen’. A...
