Happy Royal Wedding Day.

William and Kate 29th April 2011

An abundance of footage, photos, news coverage and media to follow…

As promised! What a momentous day of pomp and ceremony as William and Kate became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. After watching the footage, I feel very proud to be British on a day that went off without a hitch and had some very nice touches of flair and elegance that showed that these two, despite the titles and privilege, are just the same as us commoners. The beaming smile on Catherine’s face and the uncanny (Princess Diana) modest, humbling look on William’s showed they are just like you and me.

The whole day was wonderful but the highlights for me have to be the initial reaction of the crowd as the couple left Westminster Abbey, the emergence onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace with a couple of kisses, the thunderous fly by of WW2 bombers and the drive-by in the Aston Martin as the couple left Buckingham Palace complete with tailing balloons and William’s helicopter buddies giving a fly over from above. Great to see the country united and celebrating a wonderful day for Britain.

It should've been me!!

Scream 4 Review

Ghostface: Welcome home, Sidney. You’re a survivor, aren’t you, Sidney? What good is it to be a survivor when everyone close to you is dead? You can’t save them. All you can do… is watch!

I went to see Scream 4 last night. I’d been looking forward to this being released since I heard of it being brought out of retirement a year or so back. I’ve been an avid fan of the horror/comedy Scream franchise from the get go so was happy to see this despite the relatively low rating of Scream 3. I wasn’t disappointed. Although I’m older and more hardened viewer these days, and albeit the horror side of things are pretty much gone these days when concerned with this type of film, I thoroughly enjoyed the frights and comedy in Scream 4, plus the poster (above) is amazing artwork.

After so long away from the cinema, the rules in Scream 4 could very well be thrown out as we just don’t know whether Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers (Riley), or Dewey Riley are here just for cameos and could very well be killed off a la Drew Barrymore style in the original Scream. No spoilers here so I’m saying nowt whether our original cast make it through to the final credits. Great turns from a supporting cast of Hayden Panettiere, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, the president from Battlestar Galactica (looking very face-lift indeed) and Annie from the excellent Community (didn’t even recognise her at first with her foul mouth!).

This was the first of the Scream franchise to be lower than a UK 18 certificate so I was expecting less shocks, blood and gore, but these days you have to be pretty sick to achieve an 18 rating. It was actually the bloodiest and goriest of the franchise but sadly lacked the same chill factor of the original. I say orignal because I think the novelty wore off pretty quickly after Scary Movie spoofed the spoof and contributed to the demise of this type of movie. That being said, the original cast and crew do a fantastic job in revitalising this series of films into something that hopefully will lead to more from the hilarious comedy/horror set of films. Harking back to Scream 2 which saw the opening scene set in a cinema screening Stab (a movie version of the ‘true events’ of the Woodsboro murders – from Scream 1), the cinema I watched Scream 4 at was as close to that experience as I’ve ever experienced in the UK. We’re a serious bunch in the cinema here in the UK. Not much whooping or cheering, even clapping. But that scene in the beginning of Scream 2 had the American audience screaming and running about pretending to be Ghostface and what not. Wasn’t quite the same in Wimbledon cinema yesterday but by the end at least half the audience had shrieked or fist punched the air after a Sidney Prescott bad-ass moment. I even clapped at the end – we’re very civilised us Brits after all…. “What’s your favourite scary movie?”

Four out of five stars says me. Bring on five.
