Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon is a fun, frisky R&B/pop musical with touches of such recent hits as Purple Rain and The Karate Kid, but heavily sugar-coated with the glossy style of video music-movies like Flashdance and Footloose.
The story of a young, black martial arts student (Taimak) who falls in love with a sultry vidjockey (Vanity) while searching for the perfect master, the film seems almost...

Awful Auntie theatre review
Based on David Walliams‘ 2014 novel of the same name comes this new stage production from the celebrated Birmingham Stage Company, one of the world’s leading producers of theatre for children, and the minds behind the recent touring productions of Horrible Histories.
Their latest is a brilliantly told, wonderfully-staged version of Walliams’ famous children’s a book and a supremely entertaining night out at the theatre for young families.
The story revolves around an old English heritage abode, Saxby House, where we open to a 12-year-old girl waking from a coma, wrapped in bandages from head to foot. This young lady is Stella Saxby (Georgina Leonidas), heir to the Saxby empire, bedbound following an accident which
Flashdance review by Katey Thompson.
Flashdance is the musical take on the film of the same name, Flashdance which was originally released in 1983. Alex is a seventeen year old who has a tough job as a welder by day and a flashdancer by night but dreams of joining Shipley Academy and really learning how to dance.
Joanne Clifton of Strictly Come Dancing fame is an excellent dancer and brings a vibrancy to her role of Alex which is hard to beat. Alex finds love with Nick Hurley (Ben Adams) who is a good singer. However Nick is used to the finer things in life and struggles to understand the world from Alex and her colleagues perspective. Alex’s fellow dancers Kiki (fantastically played by Sia Dauda), Gloria (Hollie-Ann Lowe) and Tess (Demmileigh Foster) support her
The Globes gave out its first song award to the title track from “Town Without Pity” (1961) — the Oscars went with “Moon River” from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — but didn’t start handing out the prize annually until three years later. The Globes and Oscars matched only once that decade, for “The Windmills of Your Mind” from “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968).

Via Facebook, lead star Ryan Reynolds shared a picture of Deadpool wielding a paintbrush (not for the first time!) as he draws up a portrait of Nathan Summers – better known to you, I and Cyclops as Cable, the time-traveling bandit with one arm, one eye, and one cute little teddy bear.
This being Wade Wilson though, things aren’t exactly going according to plan, as the canvas reveals a painting of Brandon “Brand” Walsh, Josh Brolin’s tough-as-nails character from The Goonies – red bandana and all. If nothing else, it’s yet another hilarious example of Deadpool‘s whip-smart marketing team, who tend to use any major holiday or event (see: Super Bowl Lii) to showcase the Merc’s sharp tongue.
Per Reynolds’ Facebook feed,
Following its release, comic book writer Rob Liefeld – who co-created both Deadpool and the newly-introduced Cable – spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the movie where he compared it to James Cameron’s Aliens in terms of upping the ante and spectacle.
“Deadpool was Alien,” said Liefeld. “It’s brilliant. It completely works. It’s a masterpiece. Deadpool 2 is Aliens. It’s when James Cameron came in and said, ‘Ok you want me to do this? We’re going to make it bigger, put in loads more action.’”
With John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch at the helm, it would certainly seem like we can expect to see some impressive action sequences in Deadpool 2, and given the success of the first movie,
After Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves - and that song! - hit big, the song work of Bryan Adams was in high demand at the movies...
Last month, this site ran an article about the power of feel good pop music to lighten our mood. As soon as I read it I rushed home and put on some Bryan Adams. This wasn’t just a sudden whim. I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since 'that bloke who sings about the best days of his life' released 'that song from that film'.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste.

Deadpool 2 sees David Leitch (John Wick) directing a cast that includes
The preview opens on a serious note with Josh Brolin's half-man, half-machine Cable talking tough and blowing things up. However, Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool interrupts the action in voiceover to point out that Cable's metallic arm is just a green-screen sleeve that hasn't been given the CGI treatment.
While the special effects team makes the correction, Deadpool uses action figures to hint at the confrontation between
“I was born into war, bred into it,” Josh Brolin’s new baddie says in the footage. “People think they understand pain, but they have no concept of it.”
Ryan Reynolds — as “Deadpool’s” alter ego Wade Wilson — then breaks the fourth wall to complain about the film’s incomplete visual effects.
“What in the actual ass?” Miller says. “Dale! Why are the visual effects not done? It’s a metal arm! It’s not like we’re trying to remove a mustache!” (in reference to “Justice League’s” costly reshoots, which included digitally removing Henry Cavill’s facial hair in post-production).
To buy Dale some time, Deadpool proceeds to distract the audience with a toy recreation of a battle in the film between his character (dressed as Woody from “Toy Story”) and Cable.

The Untitled Deadpool Sequel, as Fox is officially calling it as of this minute, is still set to be released on May 18, 2018. Since the last time we did this dance, the studio has not updated the official synopsis. Though we can see some of what's going on in this footage, we get a goofy plot summary, that, if laid out and rearragended, actually does tell us what the movie is about.
