Never in my entire life have I witnessed such a terrible film. It has a horrible performance from Sacha Baron Cohen, and it doesn't have a single funny moment. It's one of the worst movies of the year....NOT!!!
Personality and identity in a piece of art shapes the resulting work — but so does anonymity.
What if all art in any form was anonymous? Hard to imagine what we would think of Andy Warhol’s work without knowing anything about his personal life or who he was. It’s hard to separate his personality, lifestyle and social circle from his art — one fed off the other.
Tim Burton's comedy/fantasy Beetlejuice has become a cult classic since its 1988 release. After a happily married couple, Adam (Alec Baldwin) and Barbara (Geena Davis) die, a new family moves into their home. They want to reclaim their home for themselves, but every method they try - haunting, scaring, dressing up as ghosts - doesn't work.
Despite having been acting since the nineties, Pedro Pascal's rise to fame and leading man status didn't come until after 2014, following his stellar performance as Oberyn Martell in HBO's Game of Thrones. And while yes, we are screaming in horror as to why and how it took this long for Hollywood to take notice of the Chilean acting powerhouse because honestly, what the frickety heck!? *coughs* I digress...I think we can all agree, it was well worth the wait.
Netflix’s new show “Emily in Paris” about a plucky young American who goes to work for a marketing company in the French capital, not knowing a word of the language but armed with her awesome Instagram skills and “fresh perspective”, has certainly stirred up some controversy. In the wake of cancellations of favourite shows such as “GLOW”, many viewers seem to feel they’ve been robbed of something good and given thrash in return. Critics are not exactly charmed, either, and I don’t even want to imagine what the French think about it. (Actually, according to the internet, they seem to be mostly laughing at it in bemusement which, I suppose, is better than the alternative.)
Alice is always the central focus of any Alice in Wonderland adaptation. That, of course, is only natural. They are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, after all.
Jean Michel Basquiat was a graffiti artist who gained notoriety in the 1980s for his gritty neo-expressionist style. Neo-expressionism is a style of art that communicates vivid and jarring images which often leaves viewers feeling a sense of tension, alienation and ambiguity. Jean Michel Basquiat's work focused on the internal struggle that we can all relate to in this pandemic.
Oliver Stone is a great guy to work with. He's also difficult. So says Matt Graham, a screenwriter who got his big break working with Academy Award-winning director on the Untold History of the United States.
It's a tale as old as time. No, we're not talking about Beauty and the Beast, but rather, the legend of Hua Mulan, the basis of Disney's classic 1998 animation Mulan and its 2020 live-action epic.
