*** Read my 3-star review of The King *** The King, a Netflix Original Film starring Timothée Chalamet, will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival 2019. It’s a new-look Henry V, his new look being Season 1 of The Black Adder, and so far we’ve got an image and a synopsis: “Hal (Chalamet), wayward… Hal yeah! “The King” offers a new Henry V Read More
Kenneth Branagh should have his own edition of the kids’ game Guess Who? (Clockwise from top left: Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets / William Shakespeare in All Is True / Hamlet in, er, Hamlet / Dr Victor Frankenstein in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein / Hercule Poirot in Murder On The Orient… Ken Who?

One is an abomination that haunts my dreams, and the other is Jason Voorhees.
*** UPDATE – my I, Tonya review! *** We haven’t got I, Tonya on release in the UK yet, but I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
