A Star Is Born: Review

Better late than never, I finally left the house to see ‘A Star Is Born’ after seeing some amazing critic reviews. 

I was at first apprehensive - not about Lady Gaga’s performance (because i’m a huge ‘American Horror Story’ fan and I loved her acting for the show), but because the idea of the film sounded quite wet and fluffy, even for a hardcore ‘Frozen’ fan like me.

What I didn’t know (having not seen the original or the previous remakes), was that there was a lot more under the surface of the modern day re-telling. There is a ton of film fans who remain totally against remaking perfectly good movies, presumably because so many have been done pretty badly (The Amazing Spider-Man, anyone?) - but on this occasion, those spoil-sports would be completely wrong.

What I've Been Watching This Week: Netflix and New Releases

If you follow me on social media, you'll probably have noticed i'm quite the film and TV fanatic, so I figured i'd start putting my talent of binge-watching things to good use and watch everything so you don't have to (unless it's great of course). 
Being the go-to gal for regular WhatsApps asking "what series should I start watching?", I feel it's now my duty to help those in need - and so I shall. So, to begin with, here's a round up of everything worth talking about this week that i've watched - the good, the bad, and the absolutely must-watch. Stay tuned cos i'll be doing this more often!

Review: Pen and Pencil Manchester

manchester restaurant review

If there's one thing I tend to do around Manchester, it's eat. I work to eat out and hardly cook - so it's safe to say i've eaten my way around the city at this point (bar a few places on my to-do list!). 
I tend to stay local, living around the NQ means I don't have to go very far for anything - cos let's face it, if you know Manchester, you know most of the best places around are in the Northern Quarter... Or am I just bias?
