Are you the sort of person who likes reading what other people think about a movie or album or book?
This is a collection of all the reviews conducted on The Blender.
Round The Twist is now available to stream on Netflix Australia. I relive the wonder and enchantment that is good Australian TV.
Jennifer Knapp’s memoir Facing The Music is a soul-searching, earnest examination of the Christian music scene, self discovery and coming out as a lesbian.
The conjunctive positives of this beautifully made, strongly themed and well scored movie definitely make it a must see for everyone. It will challenge you, inspire you and make you feel something special. And really isn’t that all you want in a movie?
Seeing Miranda Hart LIVE gave me another tick on the list of things I want to do before I die. I laughed so hard, I couldn’t breathe! Here’s what happened.
Sex, drugs and plenty of money. Scorsese and DiCaprio push all the buttons in this ongoing party of a film that gives you a snapshot of how living it big really can be awesome. But maybe cost more than money can buy.
Nicole Atkins marks her return as an independent artist with a dark and driving desert disco record.
If ever there were a time to run, it’s when you are being chased by Zombies! I have a look at Zombies, Run! 2, an interactive fitness game app (yes, healthiness and gaming together) and push myself to the limits.
Last week I dismissed Warframe as a somewhat forgettable game. One week and a hundred hours of playtime later, I’m ready to admit that I was very, very wrong.
Come Date With Me has IT Specialist Andrew choosing between blond bombshell Adele, academic Emily, party girl Jodie or Italian Vanessa while they dine and date!
Come Date With Me … Who are the real people involved in the TV show? I’ve got the goss on Canadian Ryan and more (pictures included, ladies 😉 ).
I’ll take my chances with the terrorbots, thanks.
This is the story of a man named Stanley. But you are Stanley, the story is a farce, and everything you know about stories and video games is a lie.
When caught in a weak moment, reality TV provides the escape of a lifetime.
Double Female Comedian Combo: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. One KO-worthy movie.
My admission is that I love Tina Fey. Oh, and I cried during this film. Watching Admission may further confuse you about the ongoing nepotism in the American college system. Or it may remind you how brilliant Tina Fey is.
There are so many brilliant one liners in Easy A, I can’t even get gifs for all of them. But I’ve done my best.
No other film has ever taught me more about my own life than this one – purely because it is unapologetically honest. “Sometimes it’s good to do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it.” But most of the time not doing what you’re supposed to do is better.
In a film populated by orcs, dragons, giant spiders, wargs and necromancers, the greatest threat to Middle Earth may actually be its hypnotic frame rate.
“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer,to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”
My body and I have always understood each other fairly well. I try to eat a little better and exercise on occasion, and in exchange it won’t suddenly drop dead or expand like microwave popcorn. But it seems my body is no longer happy with our little arrangement, so it’s time to re-negotiate the terms.
Here was a book that was simply written yet had great character complexities and just got straight into the story without any fussing about. And now they’d made it into a movie…
I have recently finished devouring two novels and found myself surprised by the parallels. Despite the 27 years difference in publishing dates, both novels equally hit home for me.
Not only one of the most spectacular party games on the Wii U, but an excellent excuse to buy yourself a cat onesie. As if excuses were necessary.
St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) has announced the upcoming release of her new, self-titled album. She’s frocked up like an intergalactic empress and armed with some dirty, dirty guitar.
Every rock and tree faithfully recreated – A Link Between Worlds is a glorious love letter to one of the best Zelda games ever made.
All Pokémon are equal, but some Pokémon are more equal than others. There’s nothing Orwellian about Pokémon X/Y’s new ‘Wonder Trade’ feature.
Hugh and Jess discuss the latest Hunger Games instalment. The fashion! The romance! The baboons!
I wanted to conceptualise this album with dishes of food as most people aren’t that acquainted with dub, yet everyone can enjoy a meal that leaves you in awe of its taste. So let’s start eating…
Want to free play as a superhero? Strap on the spandex and play Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
If you haven’t seen it yet, say STICK IT to whatever else you had planned and watch this gym-nasty movie right now.
You had me at “rotting space zombie inter-dimensional cowboy.”
Can enough ever really be said about any film, ever?
If you want to see love in action, this film delivers by the Opera load.
One aspect of an instrumental album that I anticipate is the way that the music alone has to capture you. Nothing else. You as an artist don’t have the ability to substitute lyrics and vocal hooks for instrumentation that isn’t engaging.
“Sin is a choice,” reads the tagline of Cormac McCarthy’s latest film. I’d say it’s more of a calling.
Our Mem Fox preaches love, not hate.
Lady Gaga’s long awaited follow up to 2011’s Born This Way has been unleashed upon the world, and much to the delight of ‘Lil Monsters’ everywhere, ARTPOP is in keeping with Gaga’s direction. And that direction is weird. Very weird.
I have had my entire being and existence summed up in one incredibly accurate Television Show.
“Leave her Johnny, leave her…” Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag is impossible to leave. I pulled myself away to bring you this review.
Two consoles, both alike in dignity. And just days from their release, I’m still no closer to deciding between them.
Morbidity, some miserly hand-wringing, and why Lost Girl is my new favourite show.
Or, more specifically, a distinct lack of it.
I see you, gorgeous lurker-things. Come out and say hello.
Richard Curtis woos me as only a mastermind British writer can… with underlying comedic genius!
With bonus extended rambling introduction.
When struck down with an earache, sore throat and temperature, I did what any iPhone owner would do… downloaded a game.
Here’s the review of Dinorama, Free App of the Week.
Far more than any seven-year-old should.
Showtime’s new drama takes a long hard look between the sheets. For science, of course.
S.H.I.E.L.D opens with an ordinary dad climbing up a burning building and saving people’s lives, no equipment needed. The sheer epicness that Marvel comfortably owns is breathed to life for the small screen… and I’m loving it.
Just a few things I witnessed with my eyeballs: What Maisie Knew, The Best Offer, Rayman Legends, Heavy Rain.
After releasing three studio albums under the imperious mantle of Sony Music, Kate Miller-Heidke is finally going it alone as an independent artist – and she needs your help.

A few tasty Chuck gifs to remind you why you miss watching Chuck, everything you love about Chuck, everything you don’t love about Jeff and why you need to rewatch Chuck right now…
It’s official: as of yesterday, Imogen Heap’s long-awaited new album has a name and a release date. Sparks is set to be released on March 3rd, 2014, and a pretty incredible deluxe box set has also been announced for earlier release on February 24th.
Wentworth Miller’s first screenplay is a delightful (and somewhat disturbing) family reunion.
Julia Zemiro brings that exuberance and authenticity to her new somewhat self-titled ABC show Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery.
I’m no stranger to Rockstar games. I know how these things go. And when I purchased Grand Theft Auto V yesterday and brought it home, I had already prepared my mind and body for the rigours of the experience.
