Review: This Is The End

Review: This Is The End

This is one of the first apocalyptic blockbusters to hit our screens this summer, but sadly it doesn’t set a high benchmark for the other contenders such as Simon Pegg’s The World’s End, despite the excitement this star-studded line-up has been building. The plot follows a series of strange, catastrophic...

Review: Cloud Atlas

Review: Cloud Atlas

Few films that are released these days can be regarded as truly risky, and even the ones that are, often fail critically and commercially by their very nature. However, Cloud Atlas is one of the few examples that succeeds in both areas. Not only is it visually and technically stunning,...
Street Style: Tremough Beards

Why You Should Be Watching Being Human

Why You Should Be Watching Being Human

The fifth and final series of Being Human, BBC Three’s supernatural comedy drama, has just started airing on Sunday nights. If you’ve never watched it before, or worse, never heard of it, can Flex be so bold as to ask where you’ve been hiding since 2009? Though characters have come in and departed...
Gangster Squad Review

Gangster Squad Review

Gangster films set between the 1920s and 1940s are nothing new, but there’s still a desire for the traditional glamour and romanticised violence that they offer. Gangster Squad offers both of these in abundance, but unfortunately suffers from average performances, a shallow story and a severe lack of character development....
Django Unchained

Django Unchained

The best thing about sitting down to watch a new Quentin Tarantino movie is that you are already guaranteed a great story, a great script, and plenty of violence. Django Unchained is no exception. Almost three hours of gun-slinging, horseback, bloody action displays the horrors of the slave trade in...
Review: Life of Pi

Review: Life of Pi

With so many action and adventure films in the cinema at this time of year, it’s nice to find one that provides the film-goer with both those things and then, if you’ll forgive the pun, a boatload more. Life of Pi is more of a journey than an adventure though,...

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review

It’s finally here. All Twilight fans now have their closure after four years of a gut wrenching, adrenaline packed, heart throbbing love story.

Interview with The Vaccines

Interview with The Vaccines

We at Flex were extremely fortunate enough to get to sit down and chat with two of The Vaccines. The huge four piece band from West London have only been around for two years, but they’ve certainly set the bar. Freddie Cowan and Pete Robertson answered plenty of questions for us,...
The Vaccines @ Plymouth Pavilions

The Vaccines @ Plymouth Pavilions

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Review

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Review

For the last few years the comedy genre has been in a rut and comedy sequels have been central to the bad spell the genre has faced (thank The Hangover for that). However, 2013 has seen a revival in the genre with smash hit comedies like This is the End, The Worlds End and now...
An interview with Sivu

Having played as a bassist in various bands over the past decade, James Page reinvented himself as singer-songwriter, Sivu.

Having recently supported London Grammar and Stornoway, we sat down with Sivu at the end of his own tour...
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

Question marks were left hanging over The Hobbit trilogy after An Unexpected Journey hit our screens asking if this three-part series was simply a means to flesh out the narrative and make some extra dolla. Holding a hopeful light for The Hobbit, I seated myself in the theatre with mixed feelings of foreboding excitement and...
White Lies @ Bristol O2 Academy

White Lies @ Bristol O2 Academy

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

Over a year later the sequel Catching Fire has been released and is even bigger and better than the first instalment. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the winner of the 74th Hunger Games returns to...
