So a few weeks back, I decided to have some sushi. Me and my colleague/schoolmate were discussing the lack of affordable but delicious onigiri in Singapore. Well, she was extolling the virtues of Samurice, and I was listening, because I am a foodie, and I was looking for cheap, healthy food that didn’t burn a hole in my wallet.
‘A sloppily handled pilot that is more congested than morning traffic into the city, with some points of humour and good acting. Tentatively watching its progress.’

‘Fox’s 10-year-old middle finger to Marvel and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the waiting begins.’
The first sentence probably sums up the movie. I still can’t believe I had my mom and brother watch this with me. Sigh. This is probably up there with my Jupiter Ascending movie review.
Okay, this is worse.
First, there’s the behind-the-scenes insanity between the director Josh Trank and the guys in Fox. The filming and re-filming of scenes, the obvious hair issues, the weird background for Victor, and a basically poop-dumped-on script that might have been good if Fox would just shut up and let Trank do what he was paid to do – DIRECT.

‘Great action, great emotional scenes, well-done easter eggs and fan service. Solid acting, solid script and solid casting. There was CGI used, but tastefully, and I could tell that JJ Abrams really went for sets as much as possible when it came to shooting the show.’
Okay, so this review will be without any idea of the story in episode 4, 5, 6, some of 2 and 3…which basically comes up with basically no idea of the story.
All I know is that Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia are fraternal twins. There’s some sort of tension between Leia and Han Solo, who’s a international smuggler. Luke and Leia are children of Padme and Anakin, and both kids have the Force. The Force acts as a combination of telekinesis, mind control, telepathy and some other stuff I haven’t seen. Anakin is Darth Vader, and turns out to be the Chosen One, and proves so by sacrificing his life to save everyone else.
This movie occurs about 30 years after Episode 6??? I don’t know, somebody please clue me in.
Okay so here’s spoiler alert.
Hi everyone:) It’s been awhile since I last posted anything here. I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting – it’s been busy. But let’s get going with the post!
As you guys have probably read the title, this post is about liquid lipsticks. I’m in the process of editing my video for general lip products, application and tips, so please stay tuned!

If not the formula, then the colour is my gold standard for every other nude lipstick I buy from now on.
Edith Cushing (played by Mia Wasikowska), a naive young writer who can see ghosts, falls deeply in love with the dashing but mysterious Thomas Sharpe, an impoverished baronet, marries him and goes with him to live in Allerdale Hall, also known as Crimson Peak.
One thing you can’t fault Guillermo del Toro, the director of this film, is his attention to detail and amazing cinematography. The titular location, Crimson Peak, is a compelling and haunting land in England, also called Allerdale Hall. I mean, just look at this.
Hi everyone:P It’s movie review time!
So today’s discussion/review is The Man from U.N.C.L.E. It’s directed by Guy Ritchie, who directed both Sherlock Holmes movies (that starred Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law). This movie stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki. Hugh Grant does come in later in the movie, but the plot doesn’t cover him much so I’m not talking about him.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E is set in the 60s, when a nuclear bomb is being built and the Russian Intelligence and CIA work together to stop a global catastrophe. It’s a very standard storyline, and little to no surprise in the plot. I had a few surprises, but that’s because I’m not so well versed with the Cold War. The characters are fun to meet.
|Napoleon Solo, A.K.A Superman, A.K.A Henry Smoking Cavill|
|Illya Kuryakin, A.K.A Prince Alcott, A.K.A Winklevoss Twins, A.K,A Armie Abbs Hammer|
|Gaby Teller, A.K.A the A.I. in Ex-Machina, A.K.A Alicia Vikander|
Armie’s chemistry with Alicia Vikander’s character, Gaby, is another interesting point. But first, watch the trailer.
This was the only thing I watched before getting into the cinema. I, and my mom, expected a romance between Solo and Teller (Cavill and Vikander). I was pleasantly surprised by Teller and Kuryakin’s romance/tension instead. It was beautifully played out by the two actors, and endlessly enjoyable. ( SPOILER: There’s the whole ‘almost-kiss’ thing between them, where they would well, almost kiss, and then something happens that breaks the moment.)
The cinematography is excellent, very much in the sleek and humour-filled style of both Sherlock films, but with a 60s twist. (SPOILER: The scene where the two agents talk about high fashion….:DDDDDD)
All in all, a good movie for beginner moviegoers with little to no experience with 60s spy movies. It’s somewhat enjoyable for more experienced moviegoers, but the plotline is definitely simple. However, it’s the scenes between each plotpoint that are worth watching it. Can’t say much about Elizabeth Debicki, since this is the first film I have seen her in, only that she played a servicable, if powerful and scheming, villainess.
