Join me from 8pm as the X Factor hopefuls find out who the public have decided will be going home this week

Good evening, and welcome to X Factor liveblog: the shriekquel. Hopefully you've all managed to get over the events of last night, including the argument about what rock is, the argument about whether the B in Misha B stands for Brilliant or Bully and Frankie Cocozza's continuing transformation into the boy from the 2008 Home Office binge drinking PSA.

One of the acts has to go tonight, but who? Marcus performed first, which is never a good thing. Sophie Habibis demonstrated such a lack of charisma that I'd be staggered if anyone even remembered that she exists, let alone voted for her. But surely - surely - Frankie has to go. Surely. His rendition of Rocks last night was up there with the all-time worst X Factor performances ever. »

A Chinese Ghost Story (2011) Movie Review

Ching Siu Tung and Tsui Hark’s 1987 immortal classic of Hong Kong cinema “A Chinese Ghost Story” returns to screens in a new version with “Ip Man” series director Wilson Yip at the helm. Wisely, although a remake, the film makes an effort to do something a little different with the original Liaozhai source material, staying true to its themes whilst taking a different approach to its characters and their relationships. Unsurprisingly, the highly anticipated film was a major blockbuster release, boasting extensive special effects work from a top Korean team, and an all star cast headed by popular leading man Louis Koo (“Don’t go Breaking my Heart”), Liu Yifei, (“The Forbidden Kingdom”) and Yu Shaoqun, (“Shaolin”), with support from veteran Kara Hui (who featured in many Shaw Brothers hits such as “Legendary Weapons of China”), Fan Siu Wong (“Ip Man”), and, most excitingly, old school Hong Kong genre »
