Is 'Fortitude' Television's Painting by Numbers?

Max Greenhalgh | Posted 01.02.2015 | UK Entertainment
Max Greenhalgh

I have no problem with influence and watching something which has obviously been influenced by a past programme, because this is how art works. It is how blatant Fortitude seems to make it. It has not so much been influenced by other dramas as just plain copying them.

This year's Golden Globe award winners underscore not only this broadening trend in content consumption, but also the fact that the future of entertainment is on consumers' terms and unconstrained by traditional broadcast models or cinematic paradigms.

"Horror For Kids" and the Poltergeist Remake

A while back, I was asked by a horror fan who had never seen the movie whether it would live up to his expectations. I was about to answer an enthusiastic 'yes' when I paused; all of my experiences of Poltergeist are filtered through having first seen it in my early teens.

It is often thought that absence makes the heart grow fonder and it looks like there may have been a part of Katie Hopkins that was delighted that her sparring partner had returned to the house to wreak more havoc in only the way that Perez Hilton can.

Theatre maketh the man

As an avid theatre attendee it is a pressing concern of mine - without crunching too many numbers or exhausting the topic - that the prize of theatre tickets in London's dazzling West End are increasing to astronomical heights.

Director, Paul Feig, revealed the all-female cast for the new Ghostbusters film. And I practically whooped when I saw the tweet that confirmed his decision. If you missed it; Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are to don proton packs and scout for ectoplasm in what will undoubtedly be a hilarious re-make of the original.

Jasmine Dotiwala

Remarkably, this is the first biography about MLK made for the big screen. The film is about a very specific moment in the city of Selma, Alabama, when black civil rights activist Martin Luther King (MLK) life, had given his "I have a dream" speech and received the Nobel peace prize, but was still frustrated by the lack of genuine progress on civil rights.

Review: Tom Stoppard's 'The Hard Problem', National Theatre

Victoria Sadler | Posted 29.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Victoria Sadler

The Hard Problem is Tom Stoppard's first new play since 2006's Rock & Roll and therefore this is a much anticipated production at the National Theatre. The Hard Problem in hand is simply, what is consciousness? But the play itself is actually hard going.

This Gender-Correct Reworking Of 'Ghostbusters' Is An Act Of 'Melissa McCarthyism'

Brendan O'Neill | Posted 29.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Brendan O'Neill

The thread tying together all this excitement about the new Ghostbusters is the idea that it's good for old culture to be remade in a more politically and morally acceptable way. But is it? Heaven help anyone who thinks movies should be fun (and that classic movies should be left alone) rather than being turned into fat adverts for sexual equality.

An Open Letter to the Cast of 'Made in Chelsea'

Bex Felton | Posted 28.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Bex Felton

It started as a guilty pleasure. A simple way to abdicate intellectual responsibility for an hour and look at attractive people talking about meaningless things, feeling smug about how great London looks and bathing in the extended idea that ALL our lives could actually be TV-ready with just a bit more editing and a more committed use of Instagram.

Grease and Grease 2 got equal airplay on our Saturdays and I couldn't understand why one was a success and the other wasn't. I loved them both. But I had an inkling of why when my mother caught them for the first time.

Good Morning Viet Cong

Daniel Cadwallader

The original Viet Cong, a Communist guerrilla army that operated in the south of Vietnam during their war with America, were either terrorists or freedom fighters depending on your point of view. The Contemporary Viet Cong, a post-punk quartet that have emerged from the Calgary Scene in Canada, can only be viewed as one thing. Awesome.

Netflix, What Next for the King of Streaming?

Wayne Beynon

Netflix has been at the forefront of this shift in the way we interact with our televisions, offering viewers an unprecedented quantity of content from one source, much of which had previously only been available by purchasing expensive movies from the likes of Sky or Virgin, or enjoying an old school DVD boxset.

Celebrity Big Brother The Non-Sexual S&M

If you strip CBB down to its basic format, it becomes quite depressing. The housemates are for the majority a product of the world we live in, in which any old Tom, Dick or Cami can have a camera pointed at them and be led to believe they are famous.
