The Voice 7: Blind Auditions Part 3

And I am back - I missed out the second Blind Auditions! As usual, a group of people will try to impress the coaches with just their voices, which then the coaches will beg for them eventually. Haha. It's a pretty interesting twist no? The auditions were mostly good, but somehow, I already feel exhausted. Is it just me or the whole novelty of the turning red tables becoming stale? Oh well.

On with the Blind Auditions!

The Voice 7: Blind Auditions Part 1

That soon? Haha. It's been a couple of months since Josh Kaufman was crowned the winner of Voice 6 and now, we're at it again! It's a bit exhausting, but what's interesting about the show - other than the now becoming stale Blake Shelton and Adam Levine - are the new refreshing addition to the panel.

Sure, I had my reservations with Gwen Stefani, but she had energy for days. Pharrell Williams was also pretty cool to watch and has a certain appeal that's quite magnetic. I hope this will be another good season for the show although I noticed that the coaches seemed to talk a lot more this season.

On with the Blind Auditions!

The Voice 6 Wrap-Up: 25 Best Performances

A new season will premiere this week with two new coaches - Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams - but before we do that, let's take a good look of how things were last season. Josh Kaufman won the whole enchalada, but there were also a pretty good number of stunning performances through out the season.

So yeah, we now pay tribute to the performances that made Season 5 worth watching - and reviewing!

Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy

Not sure if I liked The Purge: Anarchy better than its predecessor - I personally thought the first one had more focus as this seemed a bit rushed and chaotic with way too many characters - but given the same narrative and ludicrous premise with little alterations from the original, the film actually managed to contain the appeal that's pretty compelling. The mindless violence was still there, it was still quite insightful, and there's a broader scale to the whole concept. It was, however, dragged down by the stilted dialogue - especially when it tried to push the message of the film - and a host of incredibly annoying characters with disingenuous performances in general. The Purge: Anarchy was a rare conceptual film that unfortunately lacked some real depth. It was still entertaining, and that's about it. 5.5
