Movie Review: Green Room

Plot: A punk band is forced to fight for their lives after witnessing a murder at a Neo-Nazi skinhead bar.

My thoughts: I’m actually a big fan of the thriller/horror genre, and this movie did not disappoint. It is a fun, sometimes horrifying and witty film. The realism of the tactics used by the band to survive, along with the sometimes brutally realistic gore leaves you really feeling empathy for the victims, and a deep want for revenge seeping in! With a wonderful cast to compel audiences even more, it stars such actors as Anton YelchinAlia Shawkat, and Patrick Stewart. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys the thriller genre, or anyone who enjoys survival and revenge.


Toasted Almonds, Honey and Mascarpone Figs 

A very simple dish that’s delightful on a hot summers night!

What you will need

  • Figs – halved
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • Pure icing sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 2 teaspoons honey

Toast the almonds in a frying fan on a low heat until lightly golden. Leave aside to cool. Add the mascarpone and the honey into a bowl and stir to combine. Sprinkle the now cooled almonds with pure icing sugar.

Place the figs on a plate, with the mascarpone, and almonds sprinkled over for a delicious crunch. Also goes fantastic with a glass of sweet dessert wine.

Bon appetite!
