film review: wonder woman

Hannah Rogers
No comments

Imagine this… a society that thinks it is strange to see a woman who is independent­. They think it’s odd to find a woman who won’t be shushed, who is vocal, who doesn’t define herself in relation to a man—a woman who wants to fight back against oppression. This is the fantasy world of Wonder…

tv: confessions of a friends fan

Hannah Rogers
No comments

Do you have that show that you really love—that show you know inside out? The one you refer to as your show? I do. That show for me is Friends. In fact, I’m listening to the Friends theme song right now. I watch at least three episodes of Friends a week, but at one stage…

film review: beauty and the beast

Hannah Rogers
No comments

Beauty and the Beast is another Disney reboot. You’re probably expecting me to say: get over it Disney I have seen this before! But I am not going to say that, because frankly I don’t care. Why? Well because this is a fairy tale. Fairy tales are always being retold and in each retelling, they…

Hannah Rogers
No comments

When I first heard that A Series of Unfortunate Events was to be turned into a Netflix series I was ecstatic— a word that here means jumping on the furniture with glee. The books and the very good film which came out in 2004 were a fundamental part of my childhood, so much so that…

  When it comes to Christmas rom-coms, only two are of any importance. These films are of course Love Actually and The Holiday. Both films give you a slight guilty feeling about watching a rom-com, which quickly dissipates as you become emotionally involved. But why should we feel guilty about our emotional entanglement with such…

film review: drama

Hannah Rogers
No comments

  As I slink into my mid-twenties, I have feared that it would be time for me to leave behind my much-loved millennial dramas. As I find my way into stable maturity I would outgrow movies and television series like Girls and Please Like Me begrudgingly. But I need no longer worry if films like…

film review: the girl on the train

Hannah Rogers
No comments

The Girl on the Train is violent, melodramatic and dark. Based on the insanely popular 2015 thriller novel by Paula Hawkins, the film sits within a new brand of female-led thrillers. These films typically have a women heavy cast and explore the white suburban ideal through some sort of mystery. Films and books like Gone…
