Angela Lansbury

Dame Angela Lansbury has claimed that her recent controversial comments regarding the Hollywood sexual misconduct scandal were taken “out of context”, and that she is “devastated” to have been misunderstood.

The 92 year old actress, famous for her roles in ‘Murder, She Wrote’ and Beauty and the Beast, had faced criticism regarding her comments in a Radio Times interview earlier this week, reportedly saying that “making themselves attractive” had “backfired” for women and they must “sometimes take blame” regarding sexual harassment cases.

“There is no excuse whatsoever for men to harass women in an abusive sexual manner,” Lansbury said in a new statement released on Thursday (November 30th). “I am devastated that anyone should deem me capable of thinking otherwise."

With every accusation of sexual misconduct, there's always some element of victim blaming. Morrissey even suggested that Anthony Rapp brought his experience with Kevin Spacey on himself because he was in the actor's bedroom at the time, despite being 14-years-old. But when it's a powerful female figure like 92-year-old Angela, it becomes difficult to stomach.

Nanny McPhee Review


Excellent
Once upon a time, there was a young, dashing movie critic who ventured to see a fairy tale named Nanny McPhee. The critic was scared, as he had done battle with kids' movies. His record featured duels with the likes of Are We There Yet? and Rebound. He had barely survived.

But our hero had a job to do, and he never shied away from danger. He swallowed his fear, hopped into his silver, gas-fueled chariot, and sped off through the rain and inky darkness to the multiplex, that house of horrors where Cedric the Entertainer and John Travolta lurked. The critic pushed open the heavy doors and made his fateful way to face off against Nanny McPhee.

Beauty And The Beast (1991) Review


Very Good
Often considered the best animated film ever -- and the only one to ever be nominated for Best Picture -- on a return viewing ten years later, Beauty and the Beast doesn't seem to be quite the masterpiece we once thought.

Though it's still good, pop this Special Edition DVD into your player and you're instantly greeted with a crash of noise. Beauty lets you know right from the start that it is not a subtle film, full of bluster and fire and singing and talking everything. (And everything talking at the top of its lungs.)
