Film Review: Katy Perry: Part Of Me

Last night I did something I never thought I would do: I willingly went to the cinema, and paid to go see a film about Katy Perry.My relationship with Katy Perry has been an odd one. Up until about a month ago, I would listen to her songs but was reluctant to like her. There was always something about her that bugged me - at first I thought it was the irresponsible lyrics in "TGIF", or...

The Return of Regina Spektor

Regina Spektor provided the soundtrack to my twenties. I remember seeing her live and thinking that she was, quite possibly, the coolest and most talented person to ever sit at a piano.Warbling along to the entire of her 2006 album, Begin to Hope, is up there with screeching along to Jagged Little Pill in terms of all-round sing-a-long satisfaction. Even my next-door neighbours would agree (or not).

Will Brave Deliver the 1st Feminist Disney Princess?

I've always had to separate my devoted Disney fandom from my feelings about the pink princess franchise. But with the release of Brave just around the corner, have we finally got a princess any woman can be proud of?With her bright red, unruly hair and childlike frame, Princess Merida is already unusual among her peers. Seeming younger and certainly more lively, she trumps even Mulan in the tomboy stakes, despite dragging around some impressively swishy medie...

The Best Movie Trailers Re-Cut as Horror Films

How impressive a trailer is can make or break a film. Trailers like Snow White and the Huntsman are, quite frankly, amazing. Trailers such as the one for Miley Cyrus's new film LOL, are not amazing. They are very, very bad. (No doubt because the films are very, very bad.)
