‘Paul Chowdhry: Live Innit’ – Amazon Comedy Special Review

  • Nerdly
Paul Chowdhry is someone I’ve been familiar with for a while, from his previous comedy specials (What’s Happening White People? and PC’s World) as well as some of his film roles. He’s a funny comedian and I’ve enjoyed his previous work on stage, so I was down to check out his new special on Amazon Prime entitled Live Innit.

Now, he isn’t a comedian shy to be blunt and full-on with both his jokes and his crowd interactions. There’a a lot of jokes about terrorism and the generalisation of how racist folk see Asian folks. The stereotyping of race is his bread and butter and a large amount of his comedy shows, including this one, surrounds that. Sometimes it’s funny, other times it gets a bit tired, a little typical, but also quite alarming in the sense that as a world things

Patrick Dempsey & Alessandro Borghi To Lead Financial-World Thriller Series ‘Devils’ For Sky Italia & Lux Vide
Exclusive: Grey’s Anatomy icon Patrick Dempsey and in-demand Italian actor Alessandro Borghi, star of Netflix’s Suburra, are to lead cast in hot new financial-world thriller series Devils for The Young Pope and Gomorrah backer Sky Italia and Medici: Masters Of Florence producer Lux Vide.

When Ruggero ends up involved in an intercontinental financial war rocking Europe, he has to choose whether to ally himself with his mentor or fight him.

New Poster and Images for The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

  • HeyUGuys
Due out in January next year, The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box boasts a stellar cast led by Aneurin Barnard, Michael Sheen, and Lena Headey.

The film was originally titled Mariah Mundi and the Curse of the Midas Box, and the new title and its colon would suggest that Image Entertainment could well be hoping for a franchise here.

With just a few more months to go before it hits cinemas, Yahoo Movies has launched the new poster, along with a handful of images.

17-year-old Mariah Mundi’s life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth – but also devastating supernatural power. With the fate of his world, and his family at stake,

New cast member announced for Sherlock series 3

News Louisa Mellor 27 Mar 2013 - 12:50

Actress Amanda Abbington has been confirmed as appearing in the new run of Sherlock episodes...

A flurry of (well-labelled, at least) Sherlock spoilers have been doing the online rounds since filming began on the third series last week, the majority centring around an exterior scene filmed in Portland Square, Bristol. Said shoot revealed what we imagine to be some fairly spoiler-y things to the fans-turned-extras in attendance, things we won't repeat here. If you want to go looking for it, it's out there. We'll leave it at that.

Officially confirmed by the BBC today though, is the involvement of a co-star spotted filming scenes with Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch in Bristol: Amanda Abbington (Mr SelfridgeBeing HumanCase Histories and much more). Abbington is a familiar face on UK television, with roles in dramas, soaps, geek fare, and, according to her IMDb page,

'Hunted's' Melissa George: 'Why I get these parts has baffled me'

Melissa George is fortunate to like Europe and physical activity, given the demands of her latest part.

She also doesn't mind getting "shot," which happens to her not once, but twice in the opening moments of "Hunted." The action series premieres Friday (Oct. 19) on Cinemax, which is aiming for a successor to its successful "Strike Back," recently renewed for Season 4. The new show's elements were big lures for Australia-born model turned actress George, who co-starred on "Alias" for a time and also did stints on "Grey's Anatomy" and "In Treatment."

Arguably, though, her biggest calling has been the running-jumping-punching-kicking movie genre ... confirmed lately by such pay-cable staples as "Triangle" and "A Lonely Place to Die." They've proven to be good warm-ups for her new role as Sam Hunter, a covert espionage agent seeking those who tried to kill her before they can succeed.

DVD Review - Swinging with the Finkels (2011)

Swinging with the Finkels, 2011.

Directed by Jonathan Newman.

Starring Martin Freeman, Mandy Moore, Melissa George,Jerry Stiller, Jonathan Silverman and Angus Deayton.

Synopsis:

A London couple take up swinging in an effort to save their failing marriage.

It is a big year for Martin Freeman. This could well be the defining year of his cinematic career. As a TV star he’s had the fortune to have had critically lauded, iconic roles in The Office, not to mention his role in the recent BBC series Sherlock. His film career has yet to hit similar heights. He’s starred in the fairly enjoyable big screen adaptation of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, but aside from that there’s not been much of note. Certainly he’s got the potential to gain the sort of box office draw that Hugh Grant and Colin Firth have managed over the years. His role

Rose Byrne & Anna Faris Say 'I Give It A Year'

Rose Byrne & Anna Faris Say 'I Give It A Year'
We certainly never saw it coming back when he was turning in small but hilarious performances in Edgar Wright's "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," but in 2012 Rafe Spall is set to become a leading man in a Working Title rom-com. Neither did we imagine that any offspring of Timothy Spall (as much as we love him) would ever be a romantic lead. But after significant roles in "Anonymous" and "One Day" Spall the younger looks set to be a star, and now we know who his other half will be in his first big rom-com. And lucky, lucky him, because it's only the stunning and ridiculously talented Rose Byrne.

"I Give It A Year" will be written and directed by Dan Mazer ("Borat") and follows a mismatched couple (that's Spall and Byrne) as they struggle to survive their first year of marriage. It sounds a little like
