A funny romantic comedy is worth watching it immediately. The main character is a Greek, who has already turned thirty. She is terribly afraid she would never marry. The woman meets her hero, but the young man has one small drawback – he isn’t a Greek. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a movie about the wedding at all times! read more

Building a relationship with your new girlfriend ?>

Building a relationship with your new girlfriend


Relationships take time, so try not to rush the pace at which you and your girl get to know each other.

Loving kindness

Your girlfriend has chosen to be with you, because you are you. Be honest with her and don’t pretend an interest in something you really find dull as you will be found at later and are likely to lose trust, the bedrock of every relationship. Be kind with your honesty, for example if you have had a previous serious relationship, there is no need to provide all the details of your ex-partner to your new girlfriend. read more

Sorry to spoil the party…

With Iraq slowly sliding down the news agenda, you’d be forgiven for thinking that everything was bordering on tickety-boo now that Saddam has upped-sticks – after all, troops in the south of the country are enjoying Pizza Hut and Burger King meals. Jay Garner apparently had a burger and and a coke for his lunch the other day so it must all be ok.

We’re currently getting ourselves in a froth over a virus that has still killed less people than heart disease, AIDS, handguns, flu, cars and cluster bombs and which is difficult to transmit, especially if you exercise a little decency by washing your hands after taking a shit. Over in Iraq, the Iraqi people aren’t too exercised by Sars – they’re too busy being killed by unexploded ordnance and contaminated drinking water. read more

The New Dark Age ?>

The New Dark Age

Charles Clarke, the Education Secretary, has declared today that he views the study of medieval history as “ornamental” and a waste of taxpayer’s money. If I met him in the street I’d argue in favour of studying the subject on the grounds that he who does not learn the mistakes of history is doomed to repeat them. No doubt he’d treat me as a communist, after all, it’s hard to see how a student of medieval history can then go on to improve the wealth of shareholders and executives. read more

Green Fairy

I have a rule about plugging or linking to other people’s blogs (apart from Anna at Kooky Mojo, who was the first person to link to BRP back in the day.) This is mainly to avoid helping perpetuate some kind of webloggers’ circle jerk – a lot of blogs source their content from other blogs, the quality and wit degrading upon each iteration.

But recently I’ve really been enjoying Green Fairy. I became vaguely aware of GFDC last year after the site was shortlisted, along with BRP, for the Guardian’s Best British Blog. Being caught up in the heady whirl of suddenly having a couple of hundred visitors a day for the week after the list was released, I didn’t pay much attention to the other nominees. I’ve found GFDC again after, that’s right, the owner linked to BRP. read more

Burn, baby, burn ?>

Burn, baby, burn

Taking a welcome break from watching buildings burn on 24-hour news programmes, several hundred pyromaniacs gathered on Brighton beach today to watch the West Pier reduced to a smoking skeleton.

Food was provided for the hungry onlookers by collecting the bodies of starlings that had succumbed to smoke inhalation and fallen into the sea while roosting on the unburnt part of the Pier.

Fire officers suspect the blaze was started deliberately. Pentagon officials cannot confirm or deny that the fire was caused by a stray precision-guided missile. read more

Lost in La Mancha ?>

Lost in La Mancha

Terry Gilliam had been working on a screen adaptation of Cervantes’ Don Quixote for almost ten years when he finally managed to secure funding and pull all the strands together to begin filming his version, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Lost in La Mancha is a documentary about his doomed attempt to make the film and it gives us a tantalising, bittersweet glimpse of a masterpiece that was never finished.23m

Watching Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe’s excellent documentary and considering Gilliam’s history as a film-maker, particularly his fights to get Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen to the screen, it’s hard not to think that the man is somehow cursed. As Lost in La Mancha shows, almost everything that could go wrong for Gilliam while making his version of Don Quixote, did. read more

Takeshi Kitano

Guardian interview with Takeshi Kitano about his new film Dolls.takeshkitano

Takeshi Kitano is a Japanese renaissance man. Which is an understatement. There seems to be little to which he can’t or won’t turn his hand. Starting out as a TV presenter and comedian, the best comparison of him I’ve read is that he’s the equivalent of Dale Winton giving up presenting the lottery to make violent, elegiac gangster movies.

Violent Cop was his directorial debut which he also wrote and had the starring role. Starting out as a Dirty Harry style maverick cop thriller, the film slowly transforms until it becomes a Shakespearean tragedy – the climactic scene playing out like Titus Andronicus. The inevitable, necessary, violence of the denouement is almost cathartic – both a relief and a release. read more

Hollywood Hates You ?>

Hollywood Hates You

So anyway, it had been a bad week, even by the usual standards, so we thought we’d rent Die Another Day for a bit of a cheer-up. We both like the Bond films and while Brosnan is no Sean Connery, at least he’s no Roger Moore either.

But for Christ’s sake, I’m still struggling to think of a film that shows as much contempt for its audience as DAD does. From the half-arsed theme tune by Madonna (coupled with her mahogany cameo) through unspeakably lame double entendres (even for a Bond film) to a plot twist that even Victoria Beckham would see coming. The computer effects were not worthy of children’s TV and by the time the invisible car arrived I was almost apoplectic with blood-spitting fury. Then they fatally undermined the Moneypenny character by subjecting her usually strong personality to a silly, grubby and sexist little joke.bond_film read more

The other shoe finally drops…

Jack Straw was interviewed on Radio 4’s Today programme this morning. First he refused to condemn the Saudi government for it’s endorsement of the use of torture in its justice system – Britons being held by the regime claim to have been tortured. You’d be a fool and a communist to think that Mr Straw’s reticence is anything to do with arms contracts. He then went on to say that the issue on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction was “not vitally important”.Jack_Straw read more
