Bob Chaundy | Posted 14.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
Bob Chaundy

Josef Koudelka is something of a legend among photographers. He achieved worldwide fame by capturing the seismic shock felt by his fellow Czechs when, in the summer of 1968, Red Army tanks stormed into Prague to crush a government that had dared to depart from the Kremlin's diktat.

Dedicated to the B*****s

When it comes to hip-hop I can't help thinking all the work the suffragettes slogged their guts out for is being swiftly and odiously unravelled. Now I have to point out that I am a huge Drake fan and think Kanye is a lyrical genius, however there is a good sized portion of small-minded, unintelligent rappers implying 'you women are here to look good and have sex with us'.

The Huffington Post UK | Jennifer Barton | Posted 14.09.2015 | UK Parents

Tim Thornton

I have never seen Mamma Mia!, the musical, nor (emphatically nor) the film. But I do believe my appreciation of the music created by ABBA to be as great as that of any other living human. So, in an attempt to demonstrate this, here are 10 songs that say it all.

At Last... Animation for Adults

Derek Malcolm

At last a film at the Venice Festival that may well become a classic of its genre - Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's Anomalisa. Stop motion animation was never this sophisticated, thanks to Kaufman's shrewd screenplay and Johnson's visual flair.

As I watched my friend shoot the opening scene to Jon Matthew's first feature Khali The Killer, I felt my stomach start to churn in a mixture of horror and anticipation.

Writing Out Gender Bias

John Allen

I thought we all lived in a modern society where things like gender and racial bias if not completely eliminated, were rapidly becoming a thing of the past in the west. It seems not. The fact that Naomi admitted to doing it herself gave me a little relief.

We Should Be Pushing for Better Assisted Living, Not Assisted Dying

Liz Carr | Posted 11.09.2015 | UK
Liz Carr

We would all prefer a pain free death with dignity. But this law is not the way to achieve it. Anyone can have worth and dignity if they have proper care and support - and that's what we should be pushing for. Assisted living not assisted dying.

Poker Is a Game. Poker Is a Sport. Poker Is Entertainment.

Alexandre Dreyfus | Posted 10.09.2015 | UK Sport
Alexandre Dreyfus

Poker has a large but fragmented global fan base that needs aggregation, innovation and disruption to be re-activated. I believe we need to enhance the game, create proper fan engagement - that doesn't exist anymore - and build content to fulfill an existing appetite.

The Magic in Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell

Annie Martirosyan | Posted 10.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
Annie Martirosyan

This romantic view of the north of England is unsurprisingly endearing and I confess to having felt strangely enchanted by the north myself. But Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is no sentimental drama.

Joe Rivers

Despite being the only person in the tent (and, probably, the country) who knows what mahlepi is, dreamboat Tamal is having a crisis of confidence, and seems to spend half the challenge looking round at everyone else to try and get a better idea of what's going on.

Lorna Harris

So here's to Friends. May it be shown on some obscure TV channel for many years to come. I hope it's still on when I am old and grey, so I can say 'oh. Those guys. They have always (cheesy pun alert) been there for me'.

Skinny-Shaming Cheryl

Lily Lovett | Posted 08.09.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Lily Lovett

We can't know for sure what the explanation is behind Cheryl's diminishing frame but whether she is struggling with personal traumas or purposefully dieting to achieve an emaciated figure (which would be an understandable response to the immense pressure she's been put under to remain industry style thin), she is clearly going through something difficult.

Venice Film Festival: Film Reviews

There may not be too many British Films around - most of them have gone to Toronto - but British actors seem to be two-a-penny. Not that Johnny Depp is British but playing his brother in the crime thriller Black Mass is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch.

'Beasts of No Nation'

Derek Malcolm | Posted 06.09.2015 | UK Entertainment
Derek Malcolm

It is a deeply depressing tale. The young boy and his family are first seen sheltering in a village some way away from the coup which is destroying the government forces of their unnamed state. Their hopes of avoiding the conflict between government and rebel forces are ruined when government troops arrive and start slaughtering those who they believe are supporting the coup...
