The Trouble with Elysium

Review by Den Patrick Elysium is this summer’s Sci-Fi blockbuster from Neill Blomkamp, director of the much loved District 9. Blomkamp had a significantly larger budget to play with this time, along with the star power of Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. It is the year 2154 and the world has become an overcrowded, polluted hell. […]

Dr. Easy and The Red Men

Last Friday, Film4 and Warp Films released DR. EASY, a short film directed by Shynola, online for free. Based on the first chapter of Matthew De Abaitua’s novel THE RED MEN, the film is, I think, worth ten minutes of your time. It stars Tom Hollander and the voice of Geraldine James, and looks great.

Superhero Week: The Wonder of Lynda Carter

JandLAnyone who either knows me, or has seen my tweets, can’t help but notice I am something of a Wonder Woman fan. And it’s all because of Lynda Carter.

The former Miss America first slipped into the slinky costume of red, white and blue back in the 1970s for a TV movie called The New Original Wonder Woman, a wordy title designed to distance it from a terrible first effort a year or so earlier in which a blonde, tracksuited Cathy Lee Crosby played the super heroine but lacked superpowers, the iconic costume and screen presence (and the famous, catchy theme tune). Even earlier than that, the producers of the campy 60s Batman series sought out fresh TV gold from the pages of comic books and commissioned a short pilot film where Wonder Woman was played as a clumsy, single woman still living at home with her mother in 60s suburbia – the main joke appearing to be that as Wonder Woman she wasn’t nearly as attractive as she thought she was. A distinctly insulting approach for an iconic character. Both these curiosity pieces are available on YouTube if you want to lasso them down.
