Team Rita and Team Will can now relax in their big red swivel chairs having picked their three acts ready for the live shows. Sunday night and the stress and pressure is now on for Team Ricky and Team Sir Tom.
Well it has been a dramatic week in the world of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. The launch of ITV's new game show 'Back in the Room' where a hypnotist supposedly hypnotises game show contestants, has created outrage from the hypnotherapy profession.
Clark Carmody is one of the favourites for a reason, but I don't think tonight was his best showing. I know he has 'it' but the song choice wasn't right. I like him and his voice, so let's hope Rita gives him another chance.
'Suite Francaise', based on Irene Nemirovsky's best selling novel explores a legacy that still haunts France - denunciations, collaboration and forbidden love during the German occupation.
The film is funny in parts as we see Alice try to make light of her fading memory. There's a funny little exchange between her and her husband (played by Alec Baldwin) where he lectures her for forgetting that they had dinner plans. She replies sarcastically; "Well, I'm sorry.

Despite the documentary taking this exploratory approach, there was a heavy bearing on psychological therapy being the ONLY right and proper course of action for those needing assistance with the symptoms of bipolar.

'Appropriate Behaviour', Desiree Akhavan's clever feature debut peppers the screen with wit, farce and melodrama. 'Still Alice' sees Julianne Moore give an effortless and stunning performance devoid of sentimentality.
Okay, it's not as clever as some of the best episodes of Hustle or classic movie The Sting, but it looked terrific, the leads were magnetic and there were some splendid scenes.
The blind auditions are over and the chosen singers will now go head to head against one of their team mates. The victor will progress to the knock out stage. For the loser they either get stolen, (not literally) by another coach or pack up and go home.
As a filmmaker 'Immigration Street' makes me sad because it glaringly captures on camera the fact that our media industry is an 'us and them' scenario. Why weren't any of the filmmakers immigrants? Why was every single crew member I saw white skinned?
'Catch Me Daddy', the UK directorial feature debut from Daniel & Matthew Wolfe with honour killing as it's theme is ambitious, stunning and gripping cinema. Kornel Mundruczo's 'White God' is a unique, bizarre, audacious and extraordinary tale of a canine uprising on the streets of Budapest.
I was asked to review Sergei Loznitsa's new documentary record of the Ukraine protest movement Maïdan for Radio 4's Front Row programme this month. It's a timely film. Russia's black propaganda efforts since Maidan have been unrelenting...
My waiter, the chefs and all the guys at The Clink HMP Brixton appear to be smart, courteous, well trained and as suited to the job as any restaurant staff I've come across. But more than that, they have an air of hope about them.
