Dear Readers

This post is an apology and update on Gecko’s progress.

Review: Passengers (2016)

Thirty years into a space commute destined to colonise a new world, Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence), are prematurely woken from cryosleep, 90 years early. A glossy and surprisingly entertaining space venture.

Review: Alien: Covenant (2017)

Alien: Covenant, a prequel-sequel space venture that inevitably goes wrong. Covenant is a veritable upgrade from Prometheus and a strong addition to the franchise, certainly one for the fans.

Putting Pen to Paper

I love writing, always have, always will. Inspiration can strike you at any moment; I came across a poem by Christy Ann Martine that did just that.

Motivation (Or Lack Thereof)

Motivation is an elusive thing; it is literally the desire to do things. For an autonomous species, why is it so hard for us to achieve it when we need it most?

Change is Good

If the past few weeks have taught me anything, it’s that change is a good thing. From labouring through my postgraduate degree to almost giving up and changing my career path altogether, eventually, change happens… and that’s a good thing.

Review: Get Out (2017)

It’s time to meet the parents. Not just any parents, these are totally liberal. Let’s not forget they would have voted Obama for a third term. What could go wrong?

Review: Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

Ever since watching an interview with Sam Neill and Julian Dennison some few months back, I knew I needed to see this film. Let’s face it, a duo whose comic timing is under the direction of Taika Waititi can only be a good thing.
