Smoking Areas: The Point of no Return

Entertainment
 The smoking area is an enchanted portal that leads to the quest of discovery, and sometimes it’s the people along the way that make it. Reporter: Larry Gliddon | Sub-editor: Emily Fortune Sometimes the best part of the night happens in the smoking area, and sometimes you spend the whole night in the smoking area. Events are always from one extreme to another - one minute you’re witnessing a fist fight, blink, and you’re suddenly coming up after taking a green Adidas pill. “Have you got a lighter, mate” There’s so many “Have you got a lighter”s knocking about, almost always smoking menthol cigarettes. But it’s usually the Rothmans or Chesterfield smokers who hand one over, it’s like a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Beware of “Have you got a cigarette, mate”, which is “Have you got a ligh

Sully- review

"I wanted to learn a particular K-Pop dance so I looked on YouTube for videos. There were a lot of covers online and I didn’t realise it was a thing. I thought some of these people are doing it wrong, not that I know it but from watching it over and over again I was sure they were doing it wrong.

Review: The (Slightly Intoxicated) Girl On The Train

Entertainment, Film & TV
Blunt brilliant, plot not so… Reporter: Ryan Elliott | Sub-Editor: Raynor Fry     We’ve all been there. You and a group of friends head to the cinema to watch an adaptation of a well-received book, with an air of expectation and anticipation cloaking all present. Time passes by, and before you know it, the flick comes to a finish. You, as well as others, begin offering critique to one another about what you’ve just watched, and of course, THAT friend pipes up. “The book was better,” They’ll say. How cliché. Here’s the thing though – they’re quite possibly correct. The Girl On The Train sadly became a classic example, and though Paula Hawkins’ book was a New York Times Best Seller, the film struggled for direction and substance from the word go.
