Highs, Lows & Lilos – Electric Picnic 2016

whatsapp-image-2016-09-05-at-22-25-25It’s over. Again. It’s a bit mean really, the way Electric Picnic sneaks into your life for 3 days, then without a word of warning, it’s gone again. The sadness and depression that follows this annual 3 night stand cannot be put into words really, yet every year I try to do so all the same. Ok, here we go again.

niallon – Lawless

So, this happened. I’ve rarely, if ever, tried any covers of songs written by or made famous by Christy Moore. Simply put, they can rarely be done better. Lawless is an exception though, mostly because it’s just so damn fun to sing! Written by Mick Curry, this song is an interesting one to say the least. Certain lyrics are aimed at presenting a comical story and for the most part listening to it you’ll find yourself chortling away with laughter. Then it turns. That is the point that you take one of two approaches to the song. Some find it still remains humorous, albeit severely morbid humour. But the other side of it is far more tragic if you think about it too hard. There’s been a fair few people like Lawless through the years, and there are plenty still around today.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Orange County

Unfairly leafed in with the Farrelly Brothers and American Pie stable at the time of its release, Orange County is probably the film most in need of defending to date on Flicks On ‘Flix. Directed by Jake (Son Of Lawrence) Kasdan, starring Colin (Son Of Tom) Hanks, Jack Black, John Lithgow, Catherine O’ Hara and with a host of cameos – this film knows exactly what it is but maybe gave the impression it was something more inadvertently through such a stellar cast and crew. Ignore all of that and you’ll find its just an extremely enjoyable watch instead. Continue reading Flicks On ‘Flix – Orange County

Flicks On ‘Flix – Community

No, we’re not moving over to Fridays. This week’s Flicks On ‘Flix has been delayed because it is an extra special one. At least it is to me. This week we’re looking at Community. Beloved by few, if Nielsen Ratings are to be believed, Community has become a cult hit since it began six years ago, taking the tropes of other TV shows and movies and spinning some hilarious meta humour at them. Its career is a storied one and it looks for all intents and purposes that it has finally come to a rest with this most recent sixth season. Season 1 – 5 are available on Netflix and there is no better time than now to binge and take in the wonderful nugget of comedy that was Community.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Throw Momma From The Train

Maybe it’s just me, but there was a time where it felt like this film lived on RTE. Or maybe I just gave up on trying to find things to watch and repeatedly popped in our VHS copy. Either way, we’re onto an absolute childhood favourite of mine here and one which I probably shouldn’t have even been watching as a child (like most of them!)

Flicks On ‘Flix – Grabbers

You won’t find me recommending many Irish films outside of a certain holy collection I swear by that I will write about another time. I avoided this film for a long time due to severely low expectations at the thought of it being just another let down of an Irish film and I found myself delighted to be proven wrong and thoroughly delighted that I had watched one of the finest horror comedies I have ever seen, within Ireland or not.
