9 Times Park Shin Hye Was Manlier Than Your Oppas

12 Jul 2016 by Chew Hui Ling

From a damsel in distress to a delinquent-turned-doctor, Park Shin Hye’s role in the K-drama phenomenon of Doctors is undoubtedly her most career-defining work to date. Taking on the character of Yoo Hye Jeong, she portrays a tough doctor who can kick your ass both in (and out) of the hospital. And with its sky-high ratings, we’re probably not the only ones obsessed with her cool attitude. Don’t take our word for it though; here are 9 times the actress sassed all the dudes on Doctors, and came out winning.

Movie of the Week: Alice Through The Looking Glass

7 Jul 2016 by Venetia Sng

Highly anticipated sequel to Alice In Wonderland is finally hitting the theatres! Don’t let the negative press about Johnny Depp spoil the movie for you, the trailer looks really promising and we can’t wait to catch it this week already!

In Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.

Here are some other Alice adaptations you should check out!

Alice Through The Looking Glass (1998)

Alice Through The Looking Glass 1998

We can’t believe it that our Lycan killing badass vampire played Alice in one of the best adaptations of Carroll’s follow-up book. Starring Kate Beckinsale and Steve Coogan, you can actually watch the telemovie above.

Alice in Wonderland (1985)

Alice in Wonderland 1985

Thought this is the two-part television miniseries falls a bit flat halfway through Part Two but it has this innocence which seems to spread through a lot of the ’80s films. But we think that all Alice films should be measured against this one ’cause it’s without a doubt a must-watch!

Alice in Wonderland (1999)

Released a year after British telemovie Alice Through The Looking Glass (1998) which is quite similar in terms of tone and feel. Starring Martin Short, Whoopi Goldberg, Gene Wilder and many more big names, this is unquestionably one of our favourites.

Alice Through The Looking Glass opens 6 July!

6 Harry Potter Facts Even Potterheads Didn't Know

5 Jul 2016 by Venetia Sng

There’s no doubt that we’re serious Potterheads, having read the whole collection of books and watched all 8 movies more than ten times each. It’s also our dream to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter aka holyland in Florida. So it’s safe to say we know pretty much anything and everything that’s HP related. BUT we still come across unknown interesting facts, so we’ve compiled some very rarely known facts about our beloved series. 

#1 The history of Azkaban

Harry Potter Azkaban

Azkaban was originally a fortress used by a dark wizard named Ekrizdis. He would lure in muggles into the fortress in order to torture or kill them.

#2 James Sirius Potter is 12 this year

Harry Potter Family

James (pictured in the middle) turned 11 last year and started his Hogwarts education on September 1st, 2015. No prizes for which house he got sorted into.

#3 Minerva McGonagall was married

Harry Potter Minerva Mcgonagall

McGonagall was married to her previous boss Elphinstone Urquart from the Ministry of Magic. Sadly, he died by a Tentacula bite only 3 years into the marriage. She never married again. 

#4 The Sorting Hat goes through ‘hatstalls’

Harry Potter Sorting Hat

You might’ve noticed that the hat took longer than usual to sort Harry Potter in his first year, that was because the hat couldn’t decide which house to put him in and was going through a ‘hatstall’. It also happened for McGonagall as the hat couldn’t decide whether to sort her into Gryffindor or Ravenclaw.

#5 Hufflepuff won the house cup in 2015

Harry Potter HufflePuff Nymphadora Tonks

Yes, it’s hip to be a Hufflepuff. Don’t go looking down the them, we’ve got cool people like Tonks, Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts and of course Cedric Diggory.

#6 Members of the DA kept their coins

If you read the Order of the Phoenix, you’d know that Hermione designed coins for all members of Dumbledore’s Army so that they could be updated about the DA meetings. It’s heartwarming to know that all the members kept the coins as ‘badges of honour’ after the war.

Movie of the Week: The Legend of Tarzan

30 Jun 2016 by Venetia Sng

Our favourite True Blood hunk plays Tarzan clad in pants (no loincloth thank you) and no the movie won’t be about how Tarzan came to be – that will only be seen in some flashbacks. Read on to find out why you should catch our movie of the week!

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa—where he was raised by the great apes—behind for an aristocratic life in Victorian London as John Clayton, 3rd Viscount Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane Porter (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo Free State to serve as a trade emissary of the House of Commons, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the corrupt Belgian Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz).

Here are 3 reasons why you need to catch The Legend of Tarzan this week! 

#1 Amazing cast

If you’ve seen the final four films of the Harry Potter series, you’d know that David Yates can’t do any wrong. By the way, he directed the Harry Potter spin off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, coming out in August this year too!

#3 Alexander Skarsgård trained hard

Tarzan Alexander Skarsgard

Trainer Magnus Lygdback revealed that Skarsgård impressed the entire cast and crew with his physical transformation. He said, “On the first day of filming, when he took off his shirt for the first time, the first thing you noticed was his huge back. You could hear people whispering, that’s when I knew we had done it.” Co-star Margot Robbie added, ‘”World’s failed me. My jaw was on the floor. As was everyone else’s in the crew. People stopped working and were staring. Even the men were like wow. It was amazing. He worked so hard, I am so impressed.”

The Legend of Tarzan will be swinging to a cinema near you 30 June!
