Exclusive Interview – Jeff Wayne on The War of the Worlds: The Musical Drama

James Turner talks with Jeff Wayne about his upcoming audiobook, Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds: The Musical Drama…

This audiobook is your third major The War of the Worlds Project, so what can fans expect to hear in this new version? What’s familiar from the original album and The New Generation and what’s totally new?

“The audiobook domain is a different world from that of a composer who sits down to make a musical piece of work. And this difference is partly what attracted me to medium, as it allowed me approach something I’m very familiar with from a totally new angle. The original album was ninety-six minutes in length, and our shows are two-and-a-quarter hours, but the audiobook is five hours in length. So it’s a totally new approach.

“I wanted to build the audiobook around three things: H.G. Wells’ story, my

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales review – warm and witty farmyard fables

An interfering duck, a bossy pig and a dozy rabbit face a series of misadventures in this cute family-friendly animation

This pre-schooler-friendly, but somehow not sappy, animated feature is a French-Belgian production which has been seamlessly dubbed into English by a fine ensemble of British actors.

The amusing dialogue in the first of this three-part package – a little trifle about a meddlesome duck (Bill Bailey), a controlling pig (Justin Edwards) and a dozy rabbit (Adrian Edmondson) who have various misadventures when they offer to deliver a human baby for an injured stork – probably wouldn’t be side-splitting if you read it on the page. But somehow the fusion of the performers’ droll delivery, the spare yet expressive character designs and well-observed movement creates a real warmth and wit.

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales Review

  • HeyUGuys
After delighting audiences and critics alike at the 2017 London Film Festival, Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert’s brilliantly observed French animation The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (Le grand mechant renard et autres contes) finally gets a nationwide UK release, but not before undergoing a commendably accurate dubbing in English in a version which sees Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie and Bill Bailey lend their voices to this delightfully comedic anthology.

Adapted from Renner’s graphic novel of the same, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales was originally conceived as 3 half-hour TV specials, but was later turned into a film in which the three different stories are linked together by a fourth wall-breaking interval in which assorted characters take turns in introducing each new section.

‘The Rizen’ Review

Stars: Laura Swift, Patrick Knowles, Christopher Tajah, Laurence Kennedy, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Adrian Edmondson, Sally Phillips, Tom Goodman-Hill, Bruce Payne, Stephen Marcus, Bruce Herbelin-Earle | Written and Directed by Matt Mitchell

The Rizen is a UK indie-horror film set in a black hallway during the early days of the Cold War in 1955. You can tell this a period piece by the handcrafted, vintage style black walls and black floors. If this movies set design got any darker it would write poetry and start cutting itself.

I had a hard time getting into this film before I even hit the play button. The title is The Rizen. No, not “the risen” as in “the dead has risen” if you’re referencing zombies, or “He has risen” if you’re referencing theological zombies. As far as I can tell The Rizen is purposefully misspelled like “Kewl Katz” or “Hawt Dawg”. I had to Google

Movie Review – The Rizen (2017)

The Rizen, 2017.

Directed by Matt Mitchell.

Starring Laura Swift, Christopher Tajah, Patrick Knowles, Adrian Edmondson, Julian Rhind-Tutt, and Sally Phillips.

Synopsis:

The year is 1955. Nato and the Allied Forces have been conducting secret, occult experiments in a bid to win the Arms Race. Now, they have finally succeeded but what the Army has unleashed threatens to tear our world apart. One woman must lead the only survivors past horrors that the military has no way to control – and fight to close what should never have been opened.

The Rizen is the type of film that you find on the Horror channel late one night and for some inexplicable reason you can’t stop watching it. It’s a combination of gore horror, sci-fi and comedy (most I imagine is unintentional).

Opening with a ton of choppy editing, a woman called Frances (Swift) is dragged through a dark hallway and attacked by some kind of creature.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Isn’t As Good Or Bad As You Think It Is

Neil Calloway tries to find middle ground with the latest Star Wars film…

Warning: contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s been over a week, you’ve had time to go through the stages of grief and finally come to acceptance that The Last Jedi is a fairly decent film, or if you won’t accept that, you can accept that there’s nothing you can do about it. That petition won’t work. It’s here to stay, and Rian Johnson is making his own Star Wars trilogy. You overreacting like a spoiled schoolkid – or a whiny New Hope era Luke Skywalker – is not going to change anything. The Simpsons’ Comic Book Guy is not a person you should look up to as a role model. “Worst. Episode. Ever.” is not a good mantra. You can’t wallow in a bath of distilled essence of Jawa and Greedo forever.

The 1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi Cameo American Audiences Probably Missed

  • BuzzSugar
Everyone wants in on Star Wars, no matter how small the role, which is why there are so many notable cameos in the galactic franchise's most recent installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson found spots for friends, Star Wars megafans, and frequent collaborators. If you keep an eye out, you can spot everyone from Prince William and Prince Harry to Justin Theroux (although Not James Corden, Fyi). British fans also got excited about a very familiar face appearing alongside General Hux in some of the film's early scenes in a minor speaking part, something American audiences might not have picked up on. English comedian Adrian Edmondson stars as First Order bad guy Captain Peavey, and his appearance definitely got people talking. Edmondson is best know to many for his comic roles in the '80s and '90s, particularly in the shows The Young Ones and Bottom.
