But why would you choose something like this? Choosing not to choose life. Why not choose something else. What could be the reason? There is no good reason. Who needs reasons when you have heroin?

Why La La Land Is A Film That Hollywood Golden Age Actresses Would Be Proud Of

Katie Gatens | Posted 11.01.2017 | UK Entertainment
Katie Gatens

By rewriting the Hollywood musical, Chazelle has given us an alternative ending - one that does justice to the female character, and feels a lot less like 'La La Land' and a lot more like real life. Not sewn into a leather catsuit. Not half-naked. Not airbrushed. It's a 2016 musical that 1950s leading ladies would be proud of.

Is It Weird To Love TV Homes?

Last year on a trip to America I made sure to swing by 1329 Carroll avenue - or for those not in the know, the house from TV show Charmed. I started watching the show at a mere eight years old and accounting for the eight seasons of the show plus all the reruns on Netflix it was an awful lot of time to invest in a television show.

Hollywood is home to the rich and famous. As someone who has grown up watching the city on screen, there's something very magical about visiting Tinseltown in person. It has a vibe like nowhere else in the world - with a culture that is very much its own and sprinkled with a long history in film and television. After recently spending a week in Los Angeles and taking in the array of sights the city has to offer, I can now bring you my Top 5.

As a parting aside, I definitely reckon I know who Michael "Tarzan" Heseltine will be backing to be the new leader of the Tories. It's got to be Theresa May, hasn't it? If for no other reason than those infamous African inspired Leopard print kitten heels of hers.

The Nice Guys/Warcraft: The Beginning Reviews

Roger Crow | Posted 08.06.2017 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

When Shane Black co wrote and directed The Nice Guys, he must have been buoyant from the success of Iron Man 3 and thought Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling would be perfect as the 1970s detectives trying to crack the mystery of a dead porn star. Alas, they aren't.

How to Watch Films as a Feminist

Kate Delaney | Posted 02.06.2017 | UK Entertainment
Kate Delaney

With great feminist knowledge, comes great responsibility. No longer will subliminal sexism go unnoticed in your favourite TV series, no longer can you re-watch childhood movies with ignorance at their underlying misogyny and no longer can you appreciate a cheeky rom-com without feeling like you've betrayed your own kind.
