(Relatively) New on the Music Scene: Haim

By Rebecca MacKay

As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

I admit, I haven’t been a fan of Haim for long: I haven’t been following them from conception or anything, though, looking back, I probably should have been. In fact, when their new album first came onto British shelves I was utterly dismissive, believing it to be yet another hipster attempt at individuality from an all girl band once again attempting, but failing, to assert themselves into the music scene.

Film: Oculus (2013); Directed by: Mike Flanagan; Genre: Horror; Cert: 15+

Mirrors. An easy way to make an audience jump out of their skins as something supernatural appears unexpectedly in a mirror.

However, despite the main supernatural plot feature being an evil mirror, Oculus manages not to overuse this trope.

Theatre Review: ‘Antony & Cleopatra’

Alice Chambers reviews ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ at The Globe (May 2014), starring Phil Daniels as Antony and Eve Best as Cleopatra, directed by Jonathan Munby

On a torrential Saturday, I headed to London’s Globe to watch ‘Antony and Cleopatra’.

Eve Best shone in her role as Cleopatra, while unfortunately the substitute for Phil Daniels did not quite reach the dominance of a Roman leader with a highlighted script in his hand.

Where is Chart Music Going Today?

Cheryl Chow takes a look back at the last ten years of music and has compiled a timeline of the top hits of the previous ten years (2003-2013). We hope that this commentary provides some more “throwback” memories, continuing on from Mufti Day last week. What do you think about the music of today? Do you think that we’ll be dancing to these tunes in our old age?

Rating: 4.5/5

Flickering moonlight, a creaky step in the shadows, and an appearance of scrawny black cat. These are the staples of Tim Burton and Henry Selick, the co-creators of ‘The Nightmare Before the Christmas’ who are the masters of creating weird, disturbing fairytales which are a bit “off”.
