England vs Sweden – Match Preview

15 November 2011 7:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There are a lot of positives to be taken from England’s victory against Spain on Saturday; but if history has taught us anything, it’s that we must not, as England fans, get carried away by one good result. Prior to Saturday’s 1-0 win against Spain, it had been 31 long years since an England football team had beaten the reigning World Champions. On the 13th of May 1980, England played host to 1978 World Cup Winners Argentina, in what was Diego Maradona’s first appearance on English soil. Two goals from Liverpool’s David Johnson and a goal from the soon to be Southampton striker Kevin Keegan led England to a 3-1 win that day, and all seemed rosy.

Until four days later England played Wales in the ‘British Home Championship’. Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground was the venue that day, and England’s players appeared to never even come out »

Breaking In TV Review

6 April 2011 11:01 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

At first glance, Breaking In, Fox's new comedy effort, is going to draw a lot of comparisons to Leverage, but they won't last long. The world of soundbites, trailers, and flash promos makes the comparison nearly impossible to avoid, but even the smallest amount of time spent with the actual show will put it out of your mind immediately.

Sure, there's a slick, ten-moves-ahead boss running a crew of misfits, of questionable character, and the general scheme of things is mainly that they are all part of a "company" that, by and large, steal things, but the shows are as different as that quick summary makes them seem to be similar.

Christian Slater plays Oz, the man in charge, and he runs a company that tests the security of other companies. As you might expect, this is a field which requires the collaboration of skill sets that are rather popular »

Christian Slater Talks Breaking In – Not Impressed With Kirk Chair Question

31 March 2011 1:16 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Breaking In: Christian Slater as Oz in Breaking In premiering Wednesday, April 6 (9:30-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) on Fox. Cr: David Johnson/Fox

Christian Slater will be taking yet another shot at television with Breaking In on Fox. The show premieres on April 6th, and I will have something more like a review shortly, because if the pilot is truly a workable representation, then I'm going to be a fan of this one.

I got a chance to talk with him about the show on a Q & A Press call recently, and he was great to talk to. Hints of the Christian Slater we (ok, I) grew up with have melded with a very down-to-earth, clever... I want to say "fellow" for some reason, but it seems wrong.

The conversation kicked off with Captain Kirk's chair, and we couldn't seem to get away from it for long. Eventually, »

'Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical' : Hail Broadway's new royalty

28 March 2011 7:39 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Strap on your platform heels, fling the boa around your neck and wiggle into tight sequins. If you can't go fabulous, fine, just go. Join the party at Broadway's Palace Theatre.

If disco-dancing drag queen divas can't make you happy, well, really what can?

It is impossible to leave "Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical" anything less than elated.

First, let's make one thing clear: As much fun as this is -- and Priscilla is so much fun it's a wonder it's not illegal -- this isn't for kids.

Everyone else: go! Don't bother with the homophobic nonsense. If more people bopped along to Miss Understanding singing "What's Love Got to Do With It?" inane hatreds ought to melt away.

From the moment the curtain goes up and three women, wearing glittery mermaid-cut gowns are lowered on wires -- think divas ex machina - and belt "It's Raining Men" we're off, »

TV review: Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and Miracle in the Marshes of Iraq

18 January 2011 11:28 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A sensitive film about a complex, contradictory society. And dresses, really big dresses

In pictures: Big Fat Gypsy Weddings

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding appeared a year ago as a Cutting Edge one-off, but in this case a one-off was not enough. Now a new series, Big Fat Gypsy Weddings (Channel 4), is taking a celebratory, five-part look into Gypsy life.

Obviously, investigating such a community requires tact. I'm not sure, for example, when it's Ok to call a Traveller a Gypsy, but I'm going to stick with the former here, even if the only travelling I saw was a hen party going to Lanzarote.

It's not just me that's troubled by terms. Late for his own wedding, groom Swanley flagged down a pedestrian and was given directions to the wrong church. "No, this is a [offensive word] wedding!" he shouted, laughing hysterically. There followed the merest blip of an edit, but »
