ROBS REVIEWS: FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY 0 186

So this past weekend i went to watch Fighting with my Family, which is The Rock and Stephen Merchants‘ film based around the life of WWE Superstar Paige (Saraya Knight) and the Knight family based out of Norwich, England.

The main actors that are in the film are Florence Pugh, Nick Frost, Lena Heady who play the main roles of Paige, Ricky and Sweet Saraya which brought light and a true British grit to the movie, as there are plenty of times American people play British roles and that makes the film feel realistic and truly english, especially with the biggest American film star within the last 10 years The Rock rounding things out nicely.

With being a WWE Fan and knowing about the Knight family for the past 10/15 years and the amazing power that they have in the UK Wrestling scene its quite extraordinary, plus knowing of Britani Knight and her work on the UK Wrestling scene before her amazing jump to WWE made me feel super proud that there has been a film made about her come up and i feel personally her WWE career has still some amazing turns to make even though she is retired.

As said with being a WWE Fan i spotted a few plot holes that i didn’t understand and there was an inside joke that Vince Vaughn who played the role of the NXT trainer was called ‘Sex Tape’ which was clearly an inside dig that Paige has had some personal videos leak in the past that caused her emotional distress, so i don’t know why that was in the film.

Overall if we are giving it a 9/10 and I hope that Saraya (Paige) was truly happy with the turn out of the film, as that is the only thing that matters.

REVIEW: MARLENE OAK – ‘SILVER MOON’ EP 0 174

Just as several of her artistic inspirations and influences – Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and Jeff Buckley to name just three – made their impressive mark on the music world, Marlene Oak looks set to perhaps follow in their footsteps as she shares her own talents with the world via her EP Silver Moon.

Title track “Silver Moon” kicks things off with a rather bluesy sound. In all honesty, it comes across as a little flat and easily forgotten up until the point where the horns kick in and inject it with some much needed energy, but it’s soon left in the shadows thanks to “How Can I Move On”, easily the best track featured on the collection. Led by little more than a guitar and a simple drum beat, Oak’s voice is captivating, emotion palpable with every word she sings and note she reaches. It’s one of those songs that can cause goosebumps – it certainly did for me.

“In The Evening” plays like an old, much loved record from the past – the composition has an almost timeless quality to it although Oak’s voice does tend to overpower the instrumentation in places. Follow up track “Everyone” brims with energy. The song itself is the most pop-sounding featured on the collection and might remind some of past releases by the likes of Colbie Caillat or Taylor Swift (without the country-ish twang), and for that, it’s worthy of a few repeat listens and some airplay if chosen as a future single. The only slight flaw with the track is the times when the vocal sounds almost distorted like there was an issue or problem with the recording equipment. It doesn’t particularly hamper the track, but it doesn’t help either.

“Come Home” closes out the collection and while and the musicianship is good, it takes it’s rightful place in the background and allows Oak’s vocal to shine from the start, even more so as the song builds towards its end, leaving listeners with a lingering reminder of just how good a new talent Oak is – and could well be in the future.

BRITs 2019 WINNERS
Tonight we celebrated the achievements of British and international artists and musicians over the last year, live on ITV from The O2 Arena, London!

Jack Whitehall was back on hosting duties for the second year to present an exceptional night of entertainment for the 12,000 arena guests and the millions watching from home. A grand total of 13 awards – designed by acclaimed architect Sir David Adjaye – were handed out during the show.

Presenters on the night included: Paloma Faith, Annie Mac, Suki Waterhouse, Khalid, Jared Leto, Liam Payne and Winnie Harlow.

Multi-award winning actor and performer Hugh Jackman kicked off proceedings with a dazzling rendition of ‘The Greatest Show’ from the global music sensation The Greatest Showman, resplendent with over 100 circus-themed dancers. Calvin Harris made his BRITs debut with a collaboration with Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Rag’n’Bone Man, and the show also hosted performances from George Ezra, Jorja Smith, Jess Glynne with H.E.R., Little Mix with Ms Banks and The 1975. P!nk closed the show with an incredible four song medley following the presentation of her Outstanding Contribution to Music award.

Winning British Group for the second time, The 1975 also added the much coveted Mastercard British Album of the Year award to their BRIT tally, for their third No. 1 album A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

A true ‘Giant’ of British music, Calvin Harris bagged his first ever BRIT awards, having been nominated 16 times in the last ten years. Winning British Single, along with Dua Lipa, for their No.1 smash hit ‘One Kiss’, the multi-million selling DJ was also honoured with Best British Producer, in acknowledgment of his immense chart topping success over the past twelve months, collaborating with some of the biggest artists in the world and responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last decade.

More BRITs firsts on the night saw a win for George Ezra for British Male Solo Artist and Tom Walker in British Breakthrough Act, the latter a public vote. Rising star Jorja Smith, who won the Critics’ Choice award in 2018, came away with British Female Solo Artist.

The BRITs Global Success award, identified by global sales success of a British artist, was awarded to Ed Sheeran for a second year, continuing to celebrate the phenomenal success of his third album Divide – certified sales alone account for 10.5 million, and overall Ed has sold an estimated 150 million records to date.

Ariana Grande was announced as Best International Female and Drake won his second BRIT award for Best International Male. Best International Group went to The Carters, their first as a group – although Beyonce and Jay Z have both won BRIT awards as individuals previously.

British Artist Video of the Year was once again determined by public social vote and this year the winner was Little Mix for ‘Woman Like Me’, which the girls performed earlier in the show.
