Top 10: Actors Who Stopped Getting Typecast

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Ricky Gervais loves being typecast, he says that actors should do what they do best and not feel the pressure to play different parts.

However, this is clearly not the view of a lot of actors who seem to be trying to shake their ‘character’. Some have not been successful, such as Jack Black and Adam Sandler, who forever play the School of Rock and Happy Gilmore type casts.

Meanwhile other actors have been successful in breaking free from their typecast, and are in all sorts of films now…. Continue reading

The Oscars 2015

This gallery contains 5 photos.

I’m basically doing my homework the night before it’s due…

I am very behind with all of this nonsense as the nominees were released on January 15th… and The Oscars are tomorrow. But just in case, like me, these things slip under your radar, I thought I should update you on who is in the running… Continue reading

Hector and the Search for Happiness

This gallery contains 3 photos.

I thought this was going to be an English version of Walter Mitty… I think that was the aim anyway, but it certainly wasn’t the final product.

Unfortunately, this potentially deep and meaningful storyline was not achieved due to the general lack of believability, and the distaste toward the main character, Hector (Simon Pegg).

Basically, Hector is a psychiatrist and he finds himself unfulfilled. So he goes on a journey around the world, visiting countries including China and Africa, to find out what makes people happy… Continue reading

What We Did on our Holiday

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Like my horse, it’s funny at the beginning, saggy in the middle and a bit crappy at the end.

This is a film – featuring the spectacular David Tennant (Dr. Who!!) and Rosamund Pike – about a family of five going on holiday to Scotland for the grandfather’s 75th birthday party.

Long story short, the parents are having a divorce but only the children know, and they are sworn to secrecy while visiting their sickly grandfather so as to keep his final years pleasant… Continue reading

Gone Girl

This gallery contains 4 photos.

I was so shocked by Rosamund Pike’s performance – she was fantastic of course – but I wasn’t prepared for her to pick this role.

Let’s be clear, this isn’t the mystery/detective/Midsomer Murders deal I was expecting. This is a story of a manic, psychopathic panther disguised as a house cat.

Pike’s character, Amy, is the wife to Nick (Ben Affleck), when she goes missing. They were a seemingly perfect couple who live in the suburbs, but how happy were they really before this tragedy happened?… Continue reading

What Are You Like, Rosamund Pike?

This gallery contains 6 photos.

I wanted to make a quick post regarding the fantastic English actress, Rosamund Pike.

I had one idea in my head about who she is, naively based on her characters in Made in Dagenham and The World’s End, but since seeing Gone Girl my image of her has been completely crushed.

It’s like listening to an amazing song and having an idea of who the singer looks like, and what they are like in person. But then you find their photo, then you watch an interview… And then your whole perception of who you think they are is SCREWED… Continue reading

Thunderbirds Are Go! – 2015 Remake

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Have you heard?

The iconic Thunderbirds show filmed in the 60s is being revamped using a mixture of live action and CGI.

Thunderbirds Are Go! is being created with help from New Zealand’s own Weta Workshop and Pukeko Studios – no more puppets here!

Oddly, almost all of the released cast members have worked on the 50-year-old Doctor Who series. It includes actors such as David Graham, Angel Coulby and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (the list goes on). Both of the composers worked on Doctor Who as well.

(Rosamund Pike (Made In Dagenham, The World’s End) seems like the perfect choice to voice Lady Penelope.)… Continue reading
