TEN MINUTES OF UP

Jesus Christ the Lord, Mary & Joseph. That is blasphemy ladies and gentlemen and I apologise if I offended you, but fuck me this is difficult to write about never mind to watch it. It's beautiful first and foremost. 10 minutes of animation tel...

CLASSIC SIMPSONS – SEASONS 2 TO 8

How can we possibly have a website about pop culture without talking about The Simpsons. We're talking Classic Simpsons. Arguably they had an impact on the 90's like The Beatles did on the 60's. A mark of their success could be measured on marketing,

You decide to take a trip to the local cinema on a cold winter's night. The sun went down almost 5 hours ago yet it's only 8pm. There's a buzz in the air about the film you're here to see, the trailer kicks ass and the director has shown some rea...
