Alice Through The Looking Glass | Movie Review

Alice Throught the Looking Glass Movie image

Sadly I thought the first one in this debacle, ALICE IN WONDERLAND was atrocious so had the forethought to offer these tickets up to Kernel Blake, perhaps it was just me the first time around, both of them look spectacular in trailers and filled with abundant visual splendour...

Radiance | Catherynne M. Valente | Book Review

Radiance Book Cover section image

As Kernel Deb describes author Catherynne M. Valente she is a “darling of the critics” and it is my belief it has nothing to do with her self-described “mythpunk” style of writing, it is because she is the spitting image of Abby from NCIS haha, just look at that author pic below, it looks like a toned-down Pauley Perrette who would embrace wholeheartedly the style of “mythpunk” and worship Valente’s writing...

I Saw a Man | Owen Sheers | Book Review

I Saw a Man Book Cover Section image

I SAW A MAN, by Welsh author and poet Owen Sheers, is a book that really shouldn’t be judged by its cover, it got Kernel Fiona, it got me and I do believe the overseas cover down below of the article more represents the tone of the book. The cover just below this text to me has an undertone of menace and scariness, combined with the cover text indicates something possibly supernatural...

Hunt for the Wilderpeople | Movie Review

Hunt for the Wilderpeople movie image

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE is the latest romp of explosive joy from Taika Waititi, one of the most unique directors of now who has slammed home-runs with BOY and then WHAT WE DID IN THE SHADOWS. Waititi is also well known for his work on FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS and has hit the U.S. BIG TIME scoring the director’s gig for THOR: RAGNAROK. His farcical whimsical hilarity really does set him apart and makes all of his movies MUST SEE MATERIAL...

KAJAKI: KILO TWO BRAVO or KILO TWO BRAVO (in the U.S.) or KAJAKI: THE TRUE STORY (in the UK) is one of the most underrated war movies of all time, an English on-the-edge-of-your-seat war thriller that is both gruesome and poignant, starring hardly anyone you will know with abundant heroes but no hero moments (that we are accustomed to from American war movies)...

Blood Punch | Movie Review

play me now movie image

BLOOD PUNCH is one of those hidden indie horror gems that is going to become a cult classic, a U.S. dark comedy horror that loves nothing more with fucking with its own audience’s mind and also appears to have a little CHEAP THRILLS and 13 SINS enclosed. The trailer alone is enough to have sold me and Kernel Jordan reviews and loves it for Salty. BLOOD PUNCH is available in Australia from JB HI-FI and other major retailers from the 25nd of...

The First Monday in May | Movie Review

The First Monday in May movie image

Another week, another brilliant fashion and design movie. THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY is a fashionista’s porno, it is a superbly made documentary that looks at the pinnacle of fashion events, the night of nights for the who of who’s – THE MET GALA. It means little to me besides drooling over gorgeous people, but for our fashionista and lover all things design and fashion, Kernel Dara, it “is my Super Bowl, Grand Final or my Grand Prix...
