Assassins in Sydney Review

“Guns don’t right the wrongs”

One of the last things tourist things I did in Sydney was see Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins at the Sydney Opera House. I mean, I was happy to see anything at the iconic Opera House but I’m glad it was a musical (and the tickets were the cheapest theatre tickets I’ve ever gotten??). Assassins is based on historical figures who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate the President of the United States as they try to live out the American Dream.¬† Continue reading “Assassins in Sydney Review”

In Which I Rank Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I have written many Movie of the Month posts so I thought it would be fun to go through and rank the MCU movies that led up to Infinity War. I have seen most of these movies but the ones I haven’t, I obviously won’t rank. Let’s go!

Wicked Review

Last weekend, I got to revisit one of my favourite musicals. Is it clich√© to say Wicked is one of my favourite musicals? Anyways, it’s one of the shows that got me into musical theatre in the first place when I lied to my friends in grade seven and told them I loved Wicked even though I’d never seen it. Anyways, that’s another story for another time. Continue reading “Wicked Review”

Movie of the Month: The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened

If you’re a theatre kid or a Stephen Sondheim fan, then I would consider this to be mandatory viewing (and it’s on Netflix so you really don’t have an excuse to not watch it). The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened is a documentary, directed and narrated by Lonny Price, that takes the audience behind the scenes of the original 1981 Broadway production of Merrily We Roll Along. It’s about how Merrily was made and the people who made it. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened”

Movie of the Month: The Incredibles 2

I have been waiting for 14 years for this movie to come out and it’s another movie I saw opening weekend. I went to a late evening screening so the cinema was just filled with 20 year olds so that it itself was a fun time. If you read my Top 5 Favourite Movies post, you’ll know that The Incredibles is one of my all time favourite films so you’ll understand why I was so excited when this was first announced and it really didn’t disappoint me. It was so good.

Award Show Season 2018 Part 3: The Tonys

Tonys Day is up there for one of my favourite days of the year; it’s just so full of joy and light and love. Unfortunately, this year, I was in Australia (and on vacation in Melbourne, not at home in Sydney) so I missed the actual live broadcast but when I got back to Sydney, I was able to watch most of the clips and awards online. Continue reading “Award Show Season 2018 Part 3: The Tonys”

My Top 5 Favourite Movies

My “Top 5 Movies” list is a very hard list to make and unlike songs, my favourite movies don’t change on a weekly basis. If someone asks me what my favourite movie is, I usually have an answer. Once a movie has made the list, it generally stays there for quite some time until a better movie comes along and kicks it off. So without further ado, these are my Top 5 Favourite Movies (in no particular order). Continue reading “My Top 5 Favourite Movies”

Movie of the Month: Avengers: Infinity War

Hey look, ya girl’s back writing about another Marvel movie! Usually, I avoid movie theatres on opening weekends for something as big as this but in Australia you can order tickets online and reserve your seats so you’re guaranteed to get into the movie and don’t have to arrive a stupid amount of time beforehand. Anyways, every Marvel movie that has been made since 2008 (all 17 of them, starting with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk) has been leading up to Infinity War.
