Capricorn

Capricorns are philosophical, practical, and not always esoteric. If you are, however, you usually like to keep that part of yourself private – at least until you know you won’t be seen as less than down-to-earth. Yearning for powerful connections and a private estate is not always a bad thing, though this week you can ...

Movie Reviews

The reason this flashy, witless, Michael Bay-produced action/adventure/romance/sci-fi/teen drama/superhero/monster movie manages to cram in so much is that it’s cobbled together from the best bits of a dozen better movies. Mainly Twilight, substituting moody teenage aliens for moody teenage vampires. Yet still it fails. Mysterious hunk (of wood) Alex Pettyfer, the new guy in school, ...
