Film News: Beauty and the Beast of Queer-Baiting

This week, Disney announced that their new action-remake of Beauty and the Beast is to feature its first ‘exclusively gay moment’ in a Disney film.

Track Review: She Sung Oceans // Jellyskin

Like the song title suggests, Jellyskin’s latest single ‘She Sung Oceans’ is a beautiful concoction of minimalist guitar chords and wistful vocals that wave in and out of consciousness.

While yeah, I’d always enjoyed reading, my book collection had never strayed far beyond A Series of Unfortunate Events and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. However, this all changed at the tender age of thirteen. It was at this age […]Read More

My Life in Films: Juliette Rowsell

I am not a film person. It’s not like I don’t want to not be into films, but I just don’t have the time (nor the concentration capacity to sit down for two hours without making some sort of sarcastic comment). My parents were never into films either, meaning I am possibly the only teenager […]Read More
