Leeds United: Take Us Home Documentary Review

As you’ll know I am quite a fan of football and football documentaries and films, and this has been in my watch list for quite a while. Leeds United, Take Us Home is another football documentary, this one showcasing the 2018-19 season for Leeds.

I am somewhat of a veteran of football documentaries now (I should make a best of list), loving the Man City All Or Nothing doc, Inside Borussia Dortmund and Six Dreams to name only three. This one is of a similar structure, following Leeds through the 2018-19 season.

Film Night: Walk Of Shame

Walk Of Shame Film Review

I was looking around for some films to watch on Amazon, and I spotted this film, Walk Of Shame. The title of course hooked me in, but other than that, I didn’t really know anything else about the film, so I decided to give it a watch.

It is fair to say, the film is not what I expected to watch. From the title and the character, as well as the way the film starts, I was expecting it to be some kind of stereotypical rom com kind of film, with some laughs, and the overall story being the girl trying to get the guy. But the film is not like that at all.

Let’s talk about the minefield that is dating. It’s a crazy, scary and big world out there. The first date is the first step.

Here’s my guide into the first date, and the awkwardness of who’s going to be paying for it.
