Best of British Biographies – Gary Oldman

Throughout this series of Best of Brit articles, there has been a relatively common theme; a lot of the people I’ve spoken about have spent some of their earlier years in one of the renowned theatrical training grounds such as the RSC, the National, or RADA. This chap is a bit different in that he […]

Best of British Biographies – Rhys Ifans

A  short while ago I did a piece on Anthony Hopkins and mentioned some of the talent that had been born in the area of South Wales around Swansea. If you head Westish for about sixty miles you’ll be near the birthplace of this chap…Rhys Ifans. If you’re wondering, it’s pronounced Reece Ivans. That’s a […]

Indie Movie Review – Bite Me (2019)

  So…yet another vampire film. Whenever you think of a vampire film you automatically start thinking of garlic, holy water, stakes, and factor five hundred sunscreen. Let’s just throw it in the “horror” bin and see what comes up next. But wait a minute…Bite Me isn’t really a horror film. Other than the fact there […]

Top Ginger Kitties – The 6 Orange Cats in Sci Fi and Fantasy Movie Franchises

What is it about cats who are orange — and the movies? Especially in major, iconic science fiction and fantasy film franchises? It must be a ginger thing. There are mild movie spoilers here. But these aren’t new films, so all should be right in the universe. Further disclaimer: no curiosity killed any cat in […]

Movie Rewatch Review – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

My favorite of all the Harry Potter films — and books for that matter — this is just an A+ good time. If you like a quest-type adventure story, Goblet of Fire is a fine addition to the ranks of high fantasy. Unfortunately, I can’t speak for how well this tale holds together if you […]

Best of British Biographies – Toby Jones

Last year I wrote an article about Timothy Spall; one of those actors who you see in lots of character roles. Here’s another such actor. Sometimes small roles, sometimes big roles; always noticeable because he doesn’t look like your stereotypical leading man. In fact, he is what you might think of as — and I’m […]

Best of British Biographies – Maggie Smith

(Don’t Panic: Maggie isn’t dead. I just wanted to write a bit about one of my favorite actresses.) Dame Margaret Natalie Smith, CH DBE, or Maggie Smith as she’s more commonly known, has been acting for very nearly seventy years. She started out as a student with the Oxford Playhouse in 1952 and made her […]

Movie Review — Derelicts Yes kids, there are indeed slasher Thanksgiving movies out there. There’s some real weirdness in Derelicts. Don’t ask me about wearing a Teddy Bear on your face for […]

Best of British Biographies – Alan Rickman

One of the big things that actors worry about is being typecast. No matter what, they are always worrying that they might become “That guy off Star Trek” or “Oh look! Now we know who the baddie is.” They might be a very believable alien or a credibly naughty person, but they’ll never be taken […]

Best of British Biographies – Timothy Spall

“There’s the funny-looking character actor who plays the same role every time. But I’m the funny-looking character actor who plays many different kinds.” – Timothy Spall Tim Spall is one of those brilliant, chameleonic actors who can turn his hand to any role but — probably because he isn’t classically handsome — isn’t a top […]
