Entertainment | Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge Review

Salazar's Revenge is the fifth and newest installment in the popular Pirates of the Caribbean series. Like many others, I thought the last one wasn’t great but I do enjoy this franchise and felt I couldn’t miss out on seeing the new film. 

Overall the film was very good, despite being a little slow at points. The CGI work was very impressive and the film had a some laugh out loud moments with Johnny Depp in particular being as funny as ever as Captain Jack Sparrow. Aside from Jack, the film centered round it’s two new young leads, Brendan Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario, who both gave a good performance. However the highlight for me were the cameo’s of a few past characters but I shall say no more on that!

I have later discovered that there is a post credits scene that intriguingly sets up the story for a potential sixth instalment so if you’re going to watch this movie, don’t turn it off before the credits!

Well I haven't done these posts in a while but July was a good month for good things so I thought I would share a few!

Entertainment | Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Review (Spoilers)

Orange Is the New Black is now over for another year. I suppose it would last longer if I spaced the episodes out a bit more but binge watching over the space of two nights as soon as it's released is definitely more fun! The year long wait however for the next season, not so fun.

Season 5 was a little bit different compared to previous seasons but I honestly really enjoyed the show this year. It's taken me quite some time to compile my thoughts on this as I honestly have so much to say about it but I have finally managed to summarise both my strong and weak points and this post is a still little long! There will also be spoilers (nothing too huge) from this point on.

Theatre Review | Funny Girl UK Tour

After a sold out (and fastest selling ever I believe) year long run in London, Funny Girl is currently touring the UK. I got the chance to see recently and I was not disappointed. I didn’t really know much about it beforehand and I find these are usually the best shows!

The musical is set in 1920s New York and follows a women’s journey in becoming a star. Her relationship with big shot gambler Nick Arnstein also plays a big part in the story. It has the right mix of drama and comedy that makes you out laugh out loud but still keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Entertainment | My Top Ten at the Met Gala

With awards season now over, the Met Gala fills the void for best dressed lists! The trouble with the Met Gala for me is that fashion that you could consider as being 'out there' isn't really my thing so I don't often find many looks I really like at this event. However, this year's Met Gala was entirely different and I struggled to even pick a top ten! 

Entertainment | Beauty and the Beast Review

As much I as I was looking forward to this film, I wondered if due to the massive hype surrounding it, it just wouldn’t be that great. I was pleased to be proven very wrong as this film is so, so good!

Beauty and the Beast is a live action adaptation of the classic animated Disney tale. It follows the 1991 version pretty closely with some scenes directly mirroring the original (but you might not notice that if you don’t like Beauty and the Beast as much as me).
