Arthur premier in Sydney, Australia: Russell Brand mania goes wild, by Eva Rinaldi - 15th April 2011

user
Bondi Junction's Westfield - Event Cinema to be precise, was swamped by thousands of fans and dozens of photographers, paparazzi and security guards from 7pm earlier today.          Brand, now frequently billed as the 'world's funniest man', was in fine form and was extremely generous with fans and the press, frequently stopping to chat on his slow walk down the red carpet. I hear Mr Brand is off the drugs and booze - at least the hard ...

user
The talk ofAustralia's entertainment industry for the past weeks has been the long awaitedSydney premier of Jason Winer's 'Arthur' - the remake of the 1981classic which stared Dudley Moore. Staring the everentertaining, funny and oh so controversial Russell Brand, alongside Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner, the flick hasalready been predicted by numerous insiders to be in line for a number ofOscars. For me this ismuch more than just another run of the mill movie write up. I've got a bitof...

Funny With A Dose of Acid: Blake Edwards

user
  Blake Edwards, the American director whose comedic films were always presented with a dose of acid, passed away in his Los Angeles home yesterday. In a career of highs and lows, Edwards carved a particular niche as a funny man with a dark underside and a dramatist who sometimes injected humor into dark tales of desperation. His 1961 film BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, a huge success despite the smoothing out of the edges of its bohemian party girl Holy Gollightly, is a true classic of American...

Chaplin's "Great Dictator" still relevant today

user
THERE were many good lines in Chaplin's first "talking" movie, The Great Dictator. But the one that has stuck in my mind over the years comes from the final scene (or was it the penultimate scene) in which the barber is mistaken for Adenoid Hinkle and has to make a speech. "We think too much, and we feel too little", says Charlot as he addresses the massed ranks of soldiers who have been rallied to hear a pro-Nazi anti-Jewish rant. ( no problem here for the programmer...
