Review: My First Time at The Butterfly Club

Ending on a more serious note regarding the importance of sex education, My First Time handles an intimate topic with refreshing candidness and a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour. Maybe be a bit careful about who you take with you to see this one, (hint: not your grandmother), but if you’re looking for a guaranteed laugh, My First Time is a uniquely interactive and energetic production sure to set the tone for a fantastic night.

Review: The Endless

All five user reviews on IMDB for The Endless are positive, hailing it as “a rather amazing film” or “a defining film of 2017”—however, I disagree. This film has badly-written dialogue and should be punished accordingly.

Review: Fashion Talk 3, Shopping with the Future Generation at VAMFF

This begs the age-old question: can men really accurately create a completely expressive space for women through fashion?
