I’ve never been a huge fan of musicals but when done with a sense of artistry, originality, and flair (Wizard Of Oz, Grease, Phantom Of The Paradise, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Shop Of Horrors) they can be very entertaining. If done wrong however (Evita, Moulin Rouge!, […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
John Wick: Chapter 2, the sequel to the 2014 hit starring Keanu Reeves, was released in 2017 and despite it being a financial success, it was a massive disappointment. Sequels are known for being inferior and John Wick 2 did nothing to buck that trend. The film begins […]
The media and the public’s reaction to the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has been racist to say the least. I don’t mean “racist” in the most extreme sense of the word, but discrimination and the distinction or demarcation of race are all part and parcel of bigotry. […]
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile (starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins and directed by Joe Berlinger) is billed as a crime thriller with some critics describing it as a crime drama. It is therefore, supposed to chronicle the life of serial killer Ted Bundy, specifically his crimes […]
Ant Middleton is an annoying motherfucker. This former soldier, unpaid Just For Men hair colourant model, and out-of-style midget lumberjack is now a television presenter and author (although the term “author” is probably attributed to him in the same way as Katie Price, Scarlett Moffatt, and Snooki). Basically, […]
After dishing out morning-time-misery for a whopping 18 years, Matthew Wright left Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff and his chat show was then handed over to BBC Radio 2 killjoy Jeremy Vine. Even though the presenter of this programme changed last year, you can hardly tell the difference […]
A person can be offended by anything; a comment, a joke, a film, a song, a painting, an advert, an idea, even a piece of clothing. The reasoning behind the offence can also be vast from political to personal but no matter the rationale, being offended is part […]
Most people’s reaction to the documentary Leaving Neverland was swayed by mass peer pressure. Watching an overly-long documentary preceded by a slew of celebrities and media pundits feeding the public a pre-decided response isn’t how we go about dealing with accusations, especially ones this serious. When it comes […]
Matt Berry is becoming more and more irritating by the day. A victim of overexposure, back in the noughties, his appearances were few and far between but these days he’s everywhere, most of the time in voice-only form, giving his mock-seventies or eighties delivery to anything with a […]
Lil Pump, that rainbow-haired peddler of pish, today releases his sophomore album titled Harverd Dropout and I’m sure his fans will go crazy over it despite the LP lacking in every way possible. To anybody with a healthy tympanic membrane, Pump’s eponymous debut release sounded inferior and yet […]
It seems that only a couple of decades ago, if you were a republican, you didn’t have an overabundance of royalist TV shows and films shoved down your throat. Up until very recently, all you had to put up with was the occasional movie such as The Madness […]
Velvet Buzzsaw could have been so much more. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy and focussing on the art world, the trailer promised satire, thrills, supernatural goings on, and potentially great performances by the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, and John Malkovich. Unfortunately, the end […]
Although quite unique, Shirley Bassey’s singing voice has always sounded strange to me, like an airhorn on a train somehow became sentient. To my ears, her elongated vocals are akin to a cat slowly being squashed under a slow-moving steamroller. Her singing also has a slight doppler effect, […]
