Movie Catch-Up: Dream House (2010)

I hate to say this but Daniel Craig has poor form with his movie choices. Invasion, Cowboys and Aliens, now Dream House; a supernatural-horror-mystery-thriller, re-cut by the studio without the director, where the cast disowned it as simply not good enough. Daniel Craig is hotshot book editor Will Atenton, who decides to drop out of … Continue reading

Review: Skyfall

A brilliant Bond is back with brio and come full circle for the 50th anniversary. It’s the granddaddy of film ‘franchises.’ Bond creator Ian Fleming always had an eye for big boy’s adventure, spiced up with action, sex and casually name-dropped, aspirational brand names. The Broccoli family, Bond’s producers for the last fifty years, appreciate … Continue reading

Review: Adam Ant – Cool Zombie

Cool Zombie is the first single from Adam Ant’s new album Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter which is scheduled to be released in January, 2013 As is widely reported, latest pop act on the come-back trail is Adam Ant, whose new single, Cool Zombie is now available for on … Continue reading

Review: Christina Aguilera – Your Body

Few singers get the one name moniker – Maddy, J-Lo, Mariah, Beyonce, and Christina (no, not Perri!). La Aguilera is back after babies and divorce. The former Mickey Mouse Club teen sensation with the big voice is back. But it feels like a ‘me-too’ knock-off, as if competing with the new girls means losing her … Continue reading

Movie Catch-up: Australia (2008)

“On the cusp of the second world war, an English aristocrat joins forces with an Aussie Drover to save the land she inherits.” Even with Baz Luhrmann’s wild energy, this three-ring circus embarrasses Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman and an entire nation in a way even Crocodile Dundee III failed to do. After Romeo+Juliet and Moulin … Continue reading

Review: Canada by Richard Ford

“First, I’ll tell you about the robbery our parents committed. Then about the murders, which happened later.” Now that’s a hook. That’s what made me want to read on. Sensational? Yes. Direct? Certainly. An Elmore Leonard crime novel? Definitely not. Canada is the story of 15-year-old Dell Parsons’s life in the aftermath of an ill-planned … Continue reading

Review: Ian Hislop’s Stiff Upper Lip BBC2

Ian Hislop’s Stiff Upper Lip – an Emotional History of Britain, BBC2 Ian Hislop asks when and why we British have bottled up or let out our feelings and how this has affected our history. How do you tell the emotional history of a nation? Particularly when it is all based on a reputation that … Continue reading

Review: Anna Karenina (2012)

Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna) is back with brio, taking on one of the dullest, longest, most unsympathetic clunkers of social commentary novels: Anna Karenina. Feel free to disagree. Tolstoy’s characters are leaden, frock-coated and bonneted, melancholy Russians, whom cinema has re-made to death over the decades. So Wright has to resort to some wild, theatrical … Continue reading

Review: Emilie Autumn – Fight Like a Girl

“With her new album, Emilie Autumn makes her Broadway intentions ever more clear. Like her live stage show, this is not rock, not for radio, not for MTV. This is musical theatre, rock opera, and proud of it. Experience just a taste of the epic journey that mirrors Emilie’s autobiographical fantasy novel, ‘The Asylum For … Continue reading

Review: Sophie B Hawkins – The Crossing

This is the long awaited new album from another veteran of the music business, silent for ten years. Lest we forget, Hawkins includes among the bonus tracks some acoustic versions of Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover and As I Lay Me Down. Question is, was this worth the ten year wait? No doubt … Continue reading
