James Brown RIP

Posted by Martin Poulter on 29 December 2006

This planet gets light and warmth from the Sun, protection from the atmosphere and funk from Mr James Brown. As of Christmas Day, one of those things is no longer with us. Hit it on the one in tribute!

Best film of 2006?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 29 December 2006

I’ve just watched Film 2006’s countdown of the public’s favourite films of the year. In this and other end-of-year round-ups, an important, critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning film is absent, maybe because of its complete lack of big-name actors, its limited publicity and its extremely depressing subject matter. I hope that United 93 (official site) is remembered as one of the most moving and important films of the year. Currently with an impressive 7.9 score on IMDB, it is surely the definitive filmed account of what unfolded on September 11, 2001. I can’t imagine any way the acting, direction and general story-telling could be improved upon.

In a year which has given us other harrowing dramas (Syriana, The Wind That Shakes The Barley and Pan’s Labyrinth all excellent films but with gut-wrenching, explicit torture), I hope the public doesn’t neglect United 93 because they lack the stomach to watch it.

Charlie Rose

Posted by Paul Ayres on 18 December 2006

The Charlie Rose show is an hour long talk show on a PBS station in the States. For simple hour long discussion, it’s great and he gets some good guests; including film director Oliver Stone, fake TV newsman Stephen Colbert (2nd half), the cast of the West Wing and many more for your viewing pleasure.

Imagine the plot of Frankenstein, then imagine it with Dr F as a cursor and the monster as a wayward stick-man.

A conversation with Stephen Colbert

Posted by Paul Ayres on 5 December 2006

An hour long discussion with Stephen Colbert at the JFK School of Government. Starts with a Colbert compilation of greatest hits and then Stephen subverts a rather lame academic interviewer for an hour, segwaying in and out of Colbert the Character. (Sadly needs RealPlayer)
