By Ryan Grace July 26, 2017 (No)

It’s an opportunity to travel across the world, meet new people, experience American culture, and above all; make your summer an unforgettable experience. By now you’ll have seen countless articles online listing all the things you need to know before you board your flight; unlocking your phone, opening a US bank account, applying for your tax return etc etc. However there are plenty of other (and frankly more important) things to consider before you hit the road.

What You Should Be Watching On Netflix Right Now

By Felipe Wasserstein July 21, 2017 (One)
Netflix has done another great job at adding some top titles to their ever-growing library this summer. Check out our recommendations of the best movies and TV series to watch right now. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Star Wars fans will have to wait until December of this year for Episode VIII, but this stand-alone chapter of the saga (part of the Star Wars anthology series) is a great addition to the series. Set before A New Hope, the movie follows a group of rebels which are trying to steal plans for the Death Star, the Empire’s main superweapon of the original trilogy. Not featuring the traditional opening crawl […]

How The New EU Roaming Rules Will Affect You This Summer

By Felipe Wasserstein July 13, 2017 (2 Comments)
Last month, the new EU rules of “Roam Like At Home” officially began. But are Irish citizens aware of this, and most importantly, do they know about the new rules? Well, according to a research conducted by bonkers.ie, the answer is no. Approximately 61% of consumers are still unsure how the change will affect their data usage while traveling the EU this summer. Quite honestly, they can’t be blamed as the campaigns regarding this subject have led many people to believe they won’t have to pay for any fees. This isn’t the case at all and we have all of the facts on why the change was brought about, how […]

The Biggest Game Releases of 2017: Part 1

By Felipe Wasserstein July 10, 2017 (No)
The first six months of the year have been glorious for console gamers as they were treated to some huge game releases across a wide variety of genres. RPG fans, in particular, had an excellent first half of 2017 with the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Nioh and Persona 5. May and June saw the release of two fighting games from two hugely popular franchises – Injustice 2 (sequel of Injustice Gods Among us, a title which inspired a very successful series of comic books from DC comics) and Tekken 7. And fans of the seemingly timeless survival horror series, Resident Evil, enjoyed the release of Resident Evil 7 (and a return to […]

The Biggest Movie Releases Still To Come This Summer

By Felipe Wasserstein June 15, 2017 (1,228 Comments)
Every summer, Hollywood releases its mainstream blockbuster titles. Competition has been pretty tough so far this year, with releases covering a wide range of genres. We’ve had superhero movies from both Marvel and DC in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and Wonder Woman. Guy Ritchie gave us his fantasy epic King Arthur – Legend of the Sword, the Alien space horror franchise resurfaced with Covenant and Pirates of the Caribbean had its first cinematic release in 6 years with Dead Men Tell No Tales. A lot of roles being reprised, maybe none as recognisable as the characters of the hugely popular 80s TV series, Baywatch, sadly The Hoff wasn’t given […]

The Best Shows To Watch On Netflix Right Now!

By Felipe Wasserstein June 9, 2017 (No)
One of the best things about Netflix is that you have access to countless TV shows, including ones developed by Netflix themselves. But having to choose from such a vast catalogue, creates that familiar feeling we’ve all experienced – you spend more time searching for something to watch than actually watching the shows themselves. Well, we at The Sharpe have got you covered this time. The following titles are some of the very best Netflix has to offer right now. They include hours of entertainment on a variety of genres and topics, just try not to watch them all in one sitting! The Keepers (2017) The Keepers is a documentary […]

Which Beard Style Should I Pick?

By Dean Fitzgerald April 11, 2017 (No)
If ever there was an article directed towards hipsters, this was it. As much as it pains me to say it, as of right now, I cannot grow a full-on beard. Just enough to show people that there is facial hair there, but not enough for it to look well. The world has become an unusual place. Trends seem to last as long as our attention spans, but the intensity of these trends are unbelievable. Remember the Mannequin challenge? The Running Man challenge? Man buns? All came and went. Beards are the order of the day now, and beard styling is just a part of that trend, so this article […]

By Annabel Hynes March 17, 2017 (No)
There’s no end to the kinds of shenanigans that can go down on St. Patrick’s Day, especially if you’re Irish – or worse, an American with Irish heritage that feels the need to live up to a stereotype. One of the greatest joys of this once-religious holiday is drinking copious quantities of alcohol without judgement, in celebration of our country’s patron saint; and as everyone knows, simply drinking is not enough. It has to get weird. Check out some of the most innovative and plain ridiculous drinking games from around the world below, many of which can be customised for St. Patrick’s. (This doesn’t include dyeing everything green). Irish Poker […]
