Movie memories, what James Bond has taught us throughout the years

Picture Source: Den of Geek   For over half a century, Ian Fleming’s 007 agent of her majesty’s secret service, James Bond, has been gracing the screen with his high-octane escapades. Whether played by Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan or, most recently, Daniel Craig, Bond has been an icon of style, sex and suave manliness for practically every man born after the 60s. The archetypical man that “all the women want, and all the men...

FICCI FRAMES 2018, VIII: Glitches and beeps

FICCI FRAMES 2018, VIII: Glitches and beeps It’s an age-old catch 22 situation: An event needs coverage, and a journalist needs events to cover. Symbiosis is the name of the game. In the given equation, a big event or a big media house may prove equal to each other, but an unequal arrangement—big event, small journalist; small event, big journalist--usually leads to bitterness. What confounds the issue is the playing of favourites: certain event organisers inviting only certain me...

Poker-faced film stars: our top five

The cinema’s always had a love affair with casinos and gambling. Maybe it’s because, in the now famous words of screenwriter William Goldman: “In Hollywood no-one knows anything about what’s going to be a hit film.”   So every time a studio commits millions of dollars to a project, it’s a huge gamble as to whether they’ll get their money back, let alone make a profit.   Admittedly, there are some exceptions. For example, Disney are surely...
