Suddenly they all woke up and started shouting at each other about the NHS. "You're lying!" yelled Nigel to Ed. "Be quiet all of you!" yelped Dimbers. "Natalie?" "Yes, I think it was probably my turn," she replied, primly.
Alan Rickman's second time behind the camera after 'The Winter Guest' sees him opt for a sly wigs and powder costume drama amongst the flowers of Versaille.
I recently went to see "Beautiful", the Carole King bio-musical that follows her rise from Brooklyn bobby soxer to Brill Building hit machine. Does it get any better...a night of songs that feel like old friends?
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's Inside No. 9 is a delightfully twisted tour de force and The Trial of Elizabeth Gadge was no exception.
The umpteenth series of Britain's Got Talent began with a man wielding a paper and comb, the better to murder a Stevie Wonder classic, and went downhill from there. The judges, of course, voted him through. Plus ça change, folks.
In this high-concept teen movie, Mae Whitman is Bianca, an apparently smart high school girl who just happens to have two "hot babes" as best friends. She is oblivious to her status as designated ugly fat friend (the Duff in question) until this fact is helpfully pointed out by her hottie jock neighbour, Wesley (played by Robbie Amell).
The first act While We're Young, the new movie from Noah Baumbach, rings so true, it was like having my head stuck in a bell tower with a group of over enthusiastic campanologists.
The two presenters - Richard Ayoade and Kathy Burke - promised much initially, but fell woefully short of their supposed brief. This was, ostensibly, to sum up the attractions of a vibrant and wonderful city and maybe have a few laughs along the way.
A quote from Ibsen's 'The Master Builder' opens writer-director Noah Baumbach's sharp and funny take on ageing, ambition and success.
I was clearly never cut out to be a critic, but I'm fascinated by the process even to this day. In particular, I'm interested in what makes their opinions 'different' from those public ones to which the internet has given a voice.
Emmanuel is a serious contender, another act who has been brilliant throughout. This was absolutely amazing. His range is off the scale. From the minute he started singing, to the minute he stopped, it was faultless. 10/10
Anyone who remembers Gary Numan from his heyday will picture a cold, distant robot like character who sung of alienation and a dark future. While the songs of alienation are still key to his art, the man himself now takes on the persona of a preacher spreading the word to the converted.
This show shares the same attention to detail beloved by fans of 'The Killing' and other Nordic Noir dramas, and the claustrophobic, literally edge-of-the-seat stuff we've seen in 'Homeland' at its best.
The latest chapter in the Divergent series is a film of two halves. The first has all the appeal of wandering around one of those abandoned concrete-filled cities due for demolition.
Twelve acts remain and of those, four will leave tonight. No second chances. It will be pack your bags and Bon voyage!
Today marks the release of the next chapter in the Divergent franchise. I have no shame admitting I'm a fan of Veronica Roth's trilogy. Sure, it's aimed at a slightly younger demographic, but the unusual concept and exciting plot twists make the books real page-turners.
