A FALLING STAR: Enough is Enough! Review with images

AdvantagesIs Jade Goody an advantage? ok..raising an awareness maybe?

DisadvantagesSeeing more of Jade and it can affect the kids in the future.

"...This woman became a Reality TV star . . . a celebrity, and the most talked about person during her (brave) battle with cancer and after her death; we must admit that she climbed the fame ladder in a very short period and became one of the most annoying and most hated celebrities for years! To get the full picture of her life and some of her irresponsible actions, let’s start from the very beginning and we will see if there is anything different ..." Read review

If this is the Current Issue that says a lot about society... Review with images

AdvantagesIf enough people want a film made then it does make sense to make it

DisadvantagesJade's life does not warrant a film being made about it IMHO

"Since Ciao introduced its ‘Current Issue’ competition there hasn’t been a topic which has caught my attention enough to make me write a review. Of course I did participate in the Product of the Week competition when it was about a Cadbury ‘Cumble’ Crunch bar, but that’s just another story completely… It’s funny really that the first topic to grab my attention is the discussion of whether Jade Goody’s life warrants a film being made about it. Not ..." Read review

Reality TV has a lot to answer for Review with images

AdvantagesNone that I can think of (apart from Max Clifford' wallet getting bigger)

DisadvantagesWhere do I start?

"...exactly? The infamous star of reality TV show ‘Big Brother’, she shot to fame for being stupid, and rather unstupidly cashed in on this popularity and reportedly making a million pound from spin off TV shows, perfume launches, book deals (the irony being that she would never actually read her own stuff) and the like. So, after an unexpected rise to fame, a few years later, she returned to her ‘home’ on the celebrity version of the reality show. Thus ..." Read review

A no-brainer

AdvantagesCould illuminate some issues

DisadvantagesOver-exposure

"...to make social comment on reality TV and the nature of celebrity today (although these issues will certainly have to be addressed). So let’s look at some prerequisites of a good film: 1. A good, even improbable, story, preferably rags-to-riches, involving not a simple upward trajectory but plenty of setbacks as well. Family problems are a bonus. 2. The emotions of the audience should be thoroughly engaged with both comic and tragic episodes and gut-wrenching ..." Read review

No, no, no, no! Review with images

AdvantagesGiving people more of the celebrity froth which they crave

DisadvantagesThe way we celebrate mediocrity is shameful.

"FIRSTLY: For someone to die during the prime of their life is a tragedy. Hundreds of people suffer from terminal illness every year, affect countless loved ones who care for them and are bereaved afterwards. My sympathy would especially go out to all the children who have prematurely lost a parent, it must be a tremendous psychological torment one could not remotely imagine. Took a while chewing over what I felt was wrong with all the news coverage ..." Read review
