Thanks to “Les Mis”, I am well-acquainted with the shape of some celebrity noses, by Matilda Dixon-Smith

December 31, 2012


Golly, Tom Hooper loves an emotionally raw close-up shot. For me, this defined his cinematic take on Les Miserables. Hooper’s film was an extravagant love letter the beloved stage musical (based on Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name). This has been a long time coming; musical theatre enthusiasts have eagerly anticipated the day they […]

“Skyfall” Review: Bond Strikes Back by Joseph Misuraca

December 27, 2012


Sam Mendes’ Skyfall is the best James Bond film to date. It harks back to the 007 fans adored. He’s debonair, he’s a womaniser, he’s pulling off impossible feats of stamina and strength, he’s drinking his martinis (shaken not stirred), he’s using ingenious gadgetry and he has a license to thrill die-hard viewers. The British […]

December 25, 2012


Happy Christmas from Will and Matilda, your friendly YDE editors. Here’s your present! We wanted to photorecap one Christmas special, and the second we saw Artie’s black and-white holiday-themed dream, we knew it just had to be Glee.

“In Transit”: The Age of the Twentysomethings by Mattie Mould

December 19, 2012


How do they do it? People with a huge amount of creativity and initiative are cropping up all over the place and making me feel like I haven’t achieved much. In Jimmy Kimmel’s Emmys opening monologue he gave a shout out to Lena Dunham to welcome her as a new face in Hollywood. He said […]

Is “Pitch Perfect” better at being “Glee” than “Glee”? by Matilda Dixon-Smith

December 14, 2012


The short answer is “yes”. The long answer is that, while Pitch Perfect beats Glee handsomely at everything from the musical performances to the examination of friendship and self-acceptance, the film owes a great debt to the gargantuan TV karaoke franchise. A fact they acknowledge gratefully (while poking a bit of fun) throughout the film. […]
