Film Review: World War Z

I went to see World War Z a short while ago and have been meaning to review it for a while now. 
Directed by Marc Forster it is a film I have been looking forward to since it was announced.
I went to see the film a couple of weeks after release, by which time a lot of people I know had already seen it. Said people had fed back a lot of mixed reviews on the film,  none of them hailing it as great. Some said it was utterly terrible, others said it was just okay. Because of this I entered the screening with a feeling of trepidation. Would I enjoy it? Was it going to be a waste of time as I had been told?

Film Review: Pacific Rim

"Today we are cancelling the apocalypse!" 

Guillermo del Toro is back this time bringing us a love letter to Japanese Kaiju monster films. A tale of invading monstrous creatures(Kaiju), and humanities fight to stop them using the gigantic robots known as Jaegers.

It's nice to have a summer blockbuster that isn't a re-make or a sequel. Pacific Rim is $180million special effects behemoth of unpretentious fun.

Review: A Purple Cello EP by Rob Scallon

I have been following Rob Scallon's work for a fair while now. He is a marvellous musician and from the few interactions I have had with him a sound chap as well!

He announced the release of his new EP 'A Purple Cello' in his vlog from 10/07/2013, and being a lover of the Cello as well as Rob's music I of course downloaded it.

I will say right now, I have not been disappointed by the purchase. Although I am extremely jealous that he has such a beautiful purple Cello!
