evermore – Taylor Swift: Review & Recommend

When Taylor releases a new album, I have to post about it. What I didn’t expect was to be doing another album review so quickly after the folklore one! This isn’t quite so much first impressions, because I’ve already listened to it several times, but like I did with my folklore first impressions, I’ll be going through evermore track by track and talking about my early impressions. I also have an “everlore” playlist on Spotify that I’ll provide a link to that compiles my favourite tracks from both albums.

Throughout the year I’ve been doing my quarterly Favourites posts, so you can find my Spring, Summer and Autumn posts linked! As usual, I’ve split it down into categories.

Rebecca (2020) | ADAPTATION REVIEW

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again…

Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca

Let me preface this by saying that I love Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca. I did, however, read it a while ago, so my memory of it isn’t going to be too detailed. I obviously still remember enough to write about it, but I won’t really be talking about how accurate the adaptation is in terms of the finer points. Quite aside from my memory, I think there’s far more to adaptations than being totally loyal and accurate to the source material. I personally would much rather the adaptation capture the themes and aesthetic and tone of the original than stick rigidly to fine details that may not translate well across mediums. So, tone, theme, and aesthetic are all things I look for when considering whether I like an adaptation as an adaptation. Something could be a brilliant film, and terrible adaptation.

Bloodborne Review

Bloodborne: PS4 Review & Recommend

Welcome back to another Media Mondays post! Today, I’m going to be talking about my favourite game, Bloodborne. It’s been a while since I reviewed a video game, and even longer since I reviewed a more violent one! Bloodborne is rated 16 due to violence, and it’s also renowned as being a particularly tricky game. It’s made in the same vein as Dark Souls, which is a series also known for being difficult. There are no difficulty settings on Bloodborne, so if you want to play, you have to be prepared to put in the hours to practice!
