Movie and Music Reviews


The A-Team

Based on the US action TV series from the 80s, The A-Team is directed by Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces) and stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel. It tells the story of a team of military personnel who are falsely accused of a crime – to prove their innocence, they must first escape. Packed with intense action (shootings, chases, explosions and high-risk rescues), good acting and a clever script, The A-Team is perfect weekend fare.


Did You Hear About the Morgans

What do you get when you pair Hugh Grant with Sarah Jessica Parker? The perfect romantic comedy, packed with genuinely funny situations and one-liners. They play a successful New York couple whose marriage is on the rocks. But when they witness something that they shouldn’t have, they are relocated to Wyoming under the witness protection programme. Amidst their attempts to adjust to rural life, preventing bear attacks, and dodging hit men, the couple reconsider their relationship.


Please Give

Starring Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet and Oliver Platt, Please Give is a quirky indie comedy directed by Nicole Holofcener. A New York couple develop an interesting relationship with the granddaughters of the woman who lives in the apartment next to theirs. The couple need to renovate and enlarge their own apartment – for which the elderly woman needs to die. The characters in the film are complex and the film itself is a tenderly crafted commentary of human nature that will make you introspect.



Freshly ground – Radio Africa

After collaborating with Shakira for Waka Waka, the South African Afro-fusion band Freshly Ground brings you Radio Africa, their latest album comprising 11 songs, including the successful single Fire is Low. The band has tried to incorporate the frenetic energy of their legendary live shows into this collection, especially in songs like Waliphalal' Igazi, Would You Mind, and Moto. The album is heavily influenced by African musical elements but retains Freshly Ground’s signature sounds.


Jennifer Rush – Now is the hour

Comprising 15 melodious and well-written songs, Now is the Hour is arguably Jennifer Rush’s best studio album till date. From the beautiful piano notes of Dream Awake and powerful vocals of Windows to the classic ballad I Never Asked for an Angel and the retro-style Just This Way, Now is the Hour features something for everyone. Other outstanding tracks include Before the Dawn, Eyes Of A Woman, and Betcha Never.


Katie Melua - The House

The latest album from the 25-year-old English songstress features 12 wonderful songs and marks a departure from Melua’s trademark style. The electric dance vibes have been replaced by a subtle ballad-like style that will surprise you. Melua’s flamboyant singing style is enhanced by incredibly mysterious lyrics that add a haunted vibe to the tracks. Songs to watch out for: The Flood, The Happy Place, The House (title track), and The One I Love Is Gone.
