“Bachelorette”, or “Spoiler Alert: Apparently Women Can’t Be Assholes” by Matilda Dixon-Smith

September 10, 2012

Critical debate about whether Leslye Headland’s caustic film Bachelorette is any good saturates arts and entertainment media right now. Between me and fellow editor Will Kay we’ve watched the movie six times. Obviously, we’re in the camp of “Yeah, this film is fucking awesome. Get a life, haters.” And here’s why: Headland paints a gloomy […]

“Take This Waltz” or “Whaaaaaaaaaat the fuck?” by Caitlin McGrane

August 14, 2012

You guys, it’s been a pretty shitty week. I’m no longer travelling to Canada, I’m pretty sure I upset some really lovely people in the process, and I just want to dive under my duvet. Want to know what made it a whole lot more interesting (and by interesting I mean pretty fucking intense)? Take […]

Unpacking the Poster: A review of season one of ​”Girls” by Will Kay

August 3, 2012

It has become apparent to the Egg that two new blogging rules have been instated: 1) make a post about Games of Thrones and 2) make a post about Girls. Since the editors of the blog have unfortunately not seen enough of Game of Thrones to comment (mostly due to our obsession with hate-watching shows […]

The hype surrounding Shame was deafening, at least for me, so I went to see it for some peace and quiet. Oh… silly me. I left with a most garrulous and disquieted mind. All the accolades accruing weren’t the only forces that drew me; the confluence of Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, currently my two favourite […]

I’m trying to figure out why the Real Housewives franchise started existing. Am I right in thinking, like, early 2000s, maybe some smart executive had a nightmare about a cross between Desperate Housewives and MTV Cribs with a little bit of Laguna Beach thrown in…? All I know is, this show is spin-off CITY, and […]

“Breaking Dawn” is the most frightening film I’ve seen this year by Avril Good

I have a confession to make. I have read the Twilight series. That’s not the confession; I’ve heard enough people scathingly ridiculing the books in hip coffee shops on Brunswick Street to know that it’s okay to have read the first chapter or so. No, my confession is that I read the Twilight series, and […]

Quest for the Worst Movie Ever Made: Part 2 (This Time, It’s Biblical!) by Matilda Dixon-Smith

Ever wondered what melding pornography and romantic-comedies would look like? No need to wonder anymore, readers, such a film exists for your viewing pleasure. I’ve seen bad movies before, in fact, I’ve seen so many I’m compiling a list. Apparently I never knew what a “bad movie” was until I saw My First Wedding. I […]
