It’s really depressing when someone you thought was cool becomes a dull version of their former self. Back in the nineties, Eddie Izzard was an almost genius stand-up, his surreal and disjointed narrative weaved in and out of history and religion, and his juxtaposed topics and odd situations […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Every now and again, the British Film Industry churns out a new Actor and sells them to the public as “young”, “gritty”, and “realistic”. Unfortunately for the Actor in question, this is usually a clever way of marketing someone with no real “star quality”, and by labelling them […]
Remember when Jonathan Ross was kind of cool? Back in the nineties, he used to wear bright zoot suits, acted a bit anarchic, and his Channel X shows “The Last Resort”, “One Hour With Jonathan Ross”, and “Saturday Zoo” were some of the best shows on Channel 4. […]
From the opening scene of the Girls pilot episode, with Lena Dunham’s character Hannah Horvath gobbling down pasta like a deranged leach, we are introduced to the beige and banal world of the white, upper-middle-class, twenty-something New Yorker. With art almost imitating life, Hannah the wannabe writer sits […]
Nobody watches TV adverts any more. Thanks to DVR’s, we can all skip past any crappy ad, and in today’s world that means all television advertising. Aware of this fact, the Ad Execs now want you to see all the necessary information as you’re forwarding past, so they […]
The Pinkprint shows how much Nicki Minaj has crossed-over. Over the years following her rise to fame, she has abandoned any allegiance to the Hip-Hop genre and has instead become a strange and unpleasant amalgamation of cheap Pop music, tacky video aesthetics, and exaggerated body parts. The album […]
Hip-Hop is now undoubtedly a watered-down fake version of itself. Case in point; J. Cole’s track “Fire Squad” from his upcoming Album “Forest Hills Drive”. The track is okay (nothing to write home about) but when it was released yesterday, people focussed on a section from one of […]
‘It Was Alright In The 1970s’ is one of those cheap television shows which looks like it was created by a lazy git with no imagination. A lazy git who seems to love compiling old footage to form a shoddily put together documentary which is then inter-dispersed with […]
With a back catalogue that contains some interesting movies, and an innate talent for creating an important and credible feel to his films, Christopher Nolan has in the past been responsible for some great cinema. However in recent years his output has been underwhelming to say the least, […]
There have been many occasions recently when we’ve been told that an upcoming film is “huge in scale”, “big in scope”, or “epic”, but once you’re finally able to watch the movie it becomes plain that this hype was merely a marketing ploy to sell a mediocre product. […]
Benedict Cumberbatch is living proof that movie casting has gone completely skew-whiff in recent years. Benedict who is famous for his uppity and over-the-top portrayal of Sherlock, seems completely at home on television; where everybody and everything is distinctly average. Transpose him to film however, and you realise […]
In 1763 the British Army infected Native Americans with smallpox during the Siege Of Fort Pitt by giving them blankets exposed to the virus. This use of biological warfare may have led to the eventual death of 500,000 Native Americans from a smallpox epidemic during the years that […]
The Government exploits almost anything in order to garner support. The mainstream media exploits and glorifies any news story in order to attain more viewers. This coupling of the corrupt and the unscrupulous has resulted in many incorrectly reported stories which the public have unfortunately bought into, and […]
