Griff Rhys Jones Wins Battle To Stop Solar Energy Plant


Griff Rhys Jones

British funnyman Griff Rhys Jones is celebrating after winning a battle to stop the construction of a solar energy plant near his home.

The actor/comedian fiercely opposed a proposal to open a huge industrial site in the idyllic countryside of Suffolk, England, close to his property, and the scheme has now stalled following a ruling from U.K. government planning officials.

Planning inspector Elizabeth Ord says, "The harm that would result from the development would demonstrably outweigh the benefits."

Grant's Writing Career


Hugh Grant Griff Rhys Jones

Hollywood star Hugh Grant almost missed his chance to become an actor because he started out as a comedy writer. British funnyman Griff Rhys Jones thought LOVE ACTUALLY star Grant had found his career when he wrote for TV comedy duo SMITH AND JONES in the 1980s. But Grant left writing behind when he decided to try acting instead. Jones says, "Hugh Grant was in the comedy group the JOCKEYS OF NORFOLK. We sat around recently and tried to remember what bits he did. But it didn't last long. "His group got quite miffed because one of their stars had gone off and started a film. They all thought that nothing would come of it - but now look at him!"

Morons From Outer Space Review


Terrible
Wow -- insanely bad, a film which shares much with another film from Outer Space, one known as Plan 9. Mike Hodges' ridiculous tale of white-trash aliens visiting earth isn't just badly made, poorly acted, and simply boring, it's nearly impossible to watch. I wasn't so much drifting off to sleep (it's too loud for that) as I was wishing for a commercial. And alas, they just don't put commercials on DVD yet. Baneful in ever way.

Taliesin Jones Review


Good
Not quite a religious film, not quite a coming-of-age story, not quite a kiddie flick, and not quite a supernatural horror movie, Taliesin Jones's identity crisis nonetheless reveals a sweet examination of one child and his thoughts on God.

A Welsh lad, young Taliesin (John-Paul Macleod) suddenly takes an interest in religion when his doddering neighbor and local kook Billy (Ian Bannen, Waking Ned Devine) miraculously heals a stooped woman's back by laying his hands upon her. A skeptical Taliesin is likewise healed of his ugly warts, thanks to Billy's powers (and, therefore, God's powers) -- or did they just go away on their own?

The night of music, sketches, poetry, comedy and readings has been organised by THE LIBERTINE star Tom Hollander in aid of HELEN HOUSE, Britain's first children's hospice.
