There are a 1001 post-ideas rattling around my brain, and one of these is a piece about the books which have influenced me throughout my life in general, but in my childhood particularly. One of these, I can already tell you, is 50 Things Kids Can Do To Save the Earth.
When it comes to comedy, yellow is the new black. That’s the tone of the humour in this prequel to the Despicable Me movies, and the torture chamber scene and Villain-Con are definitely some of the best. These “adorable little freaks” stole the show in the preceding movies, which is exactly why they received a stand-alone movie. However, this time around there is no show to steal.
With my love for sci-fi and a fondness for time travel – no matter how much it may boggle the mind – the Terminator franchise has more than enough reasons for being a firm favourite. But the second movie has a nostalgic attachment for me, because I watched it for the first time with my late brother.
From Watergate to Monica Lewinsky, there have been many things the White House has tried to hide. In House of Cards, Kevin Spacey plays Francis Underwood, a fictional POTUS (president of the United States) with a few secrets of his own.
Just when you thought Kevin Spacey could impress no more, he made the move to television and got tongues wagging at his incredible performance in the intense political drama House of Cards.
Baking is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges the kitchen presents, as evidenced by the massive two-day baking challenge the celebrities had to endure in the latest episode.
If there is one thing about Game of Thrones that is instantly recognisable it is the opening theme. Music has an integral role to play in the renowned series, as it does for any film or show. It sets the mood, heightens tension and establishes themes.
There is no such thing as an overnight success, and if you were in any doubt then look no further than the cast of Game of Thrones. With the exception of a few of the really young ones, the actors who bring George R.R. Martin’s fantastic characters to life are firmly entrenched in the industry. But there is no doubt that old or young, veteran or not, Game of Thrones has catapulted them to the next level of stardom and success.
Working with lemons gives you the opportunity to make dishes as diverse as lemon meringue, lemon braised chicken and lemon pepper fish. As a writer it gave me the chance to play with words, which is one of the things I enjoyed about working on the latest episode of Celebrity MCSA. “When life gives you lemons” and “things are looking sour” are just some of the doozies I had the pleasure of throwing out there.
Thrusting the Marlboro man into the heart of modern-day warfare is a task which inevitably, and somewhat poetically, fell into the hands of Clint Eastwood. As director of American Sniper, he takes a cold, hard look into the tours of duty of Chris Kyle, a US Navy Seal and the country’s deadliest sniper, during the Iraq War.
