Loose Women 17/03/2010

Letting It All Hang Loose

Loose Women I don’t know about you, but I like to loosen up around lunch. Kick back, relax and hand myself over to fun, carefree television. I’m not claiming that Loose Women is top-notch quality viewing, but it is guaranteed to be a good laugh. Each day, Monday to Friday, four celebrities present a discussion programme, with two different guests appearing on the show each time. These four ladies vary from day to day (I will go into this in more depth later) which helps to spice up the programme. The hour includes the ladies debating the chosen topics – today’s being “Are you a fan of holding hands?”, “How do you keep boredom out of your life?”, “Were you born with dancing shoes on?” and “What do you think about schools monitoring your child’s weight?” So, as you can see, the topics are pretty general, although often relevant to what has cropped up in the media that week. What really makes them interesting is the way the loose women chop in with their own tales and often have completely different opinions from one another. The gang are an interesting mix of personalities who have come to be a loose woman from a variety of careers; some are journalists or presenters, others actresses and singers. You wouldn’t necessarily recognise them all, but I’m pretty sure that being on this panel show has made them known to a more mainstream audience. Meet the Loose Women Each day one woman leads the others, introducing the topics and managing the discussion, ensuring that things ...

An Education (DVD) 12/03/2010

Never Let Your Schooling Interfere With Your Education

An Education (DVD) My title is based on a Mark twain quote, which suits this film beautifully! An Education has received countless nominations for everything from ‘Best Screenplay’ at the British Independent Film Awards through to ‘Best Direction’ at this year’s BAFTAs, with the relatively unknown Carey Mulligan famously winning ‘Best Actress’ at the BAFTAs. With such critical acclaim linked to this film and plenty of quality movie clips shown at BAFTAs, I was immediately enthralled. Would ‘An Education’ live up to its expectations or would it be one huge disappointment? =Acting= Personally, I believe the best performance was given by Alfred Molina who plays jack, Jenny’s Father. Jack is a man of great principles, who wants the best for his only daughter, but doesn’t always show his support in the right way. Although the character is a tough, authority figure, Molina has interpreted him in a very human way in which one can relate cow to him, rather than feel he is a villain. A particularly touching moment is when he delivers an emotional apology to Jenny (well, a shut bedroom door with her on the other side of it) carrying a cup of tea and three custard creams! The writing here is brilliant and very well delivered by Alfred Molina. His experience of working almost consistently for the last 30 years have really paid off in this film. Kara Seymour, an actress whom I was previously unfamiliar with, plays the girl’s Mother, Marjorie. She supports both Carey Mulligan and Alfred ...

The Invention Of Lying (DVD) 27/02/2010

Well, If I'm Being Honest...

The Invention Of Lying (DVD) Ricky Gervais was recently interviewed on The One Show and this brought my attention to his film ‘The Invention of Lying.’ Believe me, it is very much his film, as he not only starred in it but was also scriptwriter, producer and director. Quite impressive really! It’s amazing how well Gervais has gone down State-side after they bought ‘The Office’ from us Brits. In fact, his profile went so high that he was even asked to present The Golden Globes this year! So this film is pretty much American, except from Gervais himself, but I didn’t find that detrimental to his form of comedy. In fact, the ensemble cast and his leading lady were all brilliant at performing his deadpan style of humour. The film begins with a charming introduction from Gervais, who explains that the world of the film is an alternative reality in which it is impossible to lie. This has very harsh and humorous consequences – particularly for “loser” Mark Bellison (Ricky Gervais) whose colleagues openly admit they hate him and women freely confess they are out of his league. I think it’s fair to say that this completely honest world is established very thoroughly and even quite believably. From a bus advert stating “Pepsi – for when they don’t have Coke” to a cheap motel's description being “for intercourse with a stranger.” These little details ensured I was chuckling throughout and were often very clever. ‘The Invention of Lying’ is essentially a romantic comedy (just a very high concept ...

Essays 26/10/2004

A Literary biography of Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Essays The Romantic movement took place between 1789 and 1832.Romanticism encourages freedom of ideas and the expression of emotion, therefore, legends, folklore, dreams, the supernatural and pacifically nature are all included in romantic poetry. This essay focuses on Samuel Taylor Coleridge but another well known romantic poet is William Wordsworth. Coleridge and Wordsworth were companions for a while and influenced each others poetry. The child of Anne Bowden and John Coleridge, Samuel Taylor, was born on the 21st October, 1772, in Ottery St Mary’s, which is in Devon. He was the youngest of 10 children, which meant that he had to fight for the attention of his beloved father, who was a vicar and headmaster at the local school. Later on in his life, at the age of nine, Coleridge lost hi father due to a heart attack. As a result of this unfortunate event, the Coleridge family moved out of the school house. Samuel Taylor also left his father’s school, which he had attended since the age of six, and in 1782, Coleridge started at Jesus Christ’s hospital in London. Nine years on and Coleridge had earned himself a scholarship to the well renowned Cambridge University, where he led a hectic social life.He stayed at university for two years, before giving it up for a job as a Private, presumably to help him pay off his great debts which came with his exciting social life. He went under the name of ‘Silas Tomkin Comberbache.’ He soon abandoned this occupation and returned to ...
