Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz and Shark Suits - The Super Bowl Halftime Was Surreal


Katy Perry Lenny Kravitz

Katy Perry is like the dark horse of Super Bowl halftimes (do you like what I did there)? The songstress goes through reinventions so fast that you never really know what you’re going to get next. Sugarcoated bubblegum pop princess Perry? Dark, vaguely occultish Perry? Girl power-loving, anthem-belting Perry? Or the quirky pop art queen we’ve come to know of late?

Perry ditched the all-black look for flames and sequins.

It was a weird mix of all those things that Perry actually unleashed at the University of Arizona stadium last night. Going into the show, Perry faced high expectations, but she also had a lot of support – even from ex-husband Russell Brand, of all people.

So, Did Katy Perry 'Pay To Play' At This Year's Superbowl?


Katy Perry Lenny Kravitz

It’s one of the most coveted gigs a performer can land, the halftime slot at the Superbowl and this year the honour has fallen on Katy Perry. But while there had been rumours that the NFL asked the artist in consideration for the 2015 gig to ‘pay to play’, Perry has said she didn't buy her place on the show.

"I put my foot down very early in the courtship," Perry told The Associated Press "I said, 'Look guys, here's where I draw a line in the sand.' I want to be invited on my own merits and not with some fine print.”

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review


Extraordinary

After 2012's The Hunger Games caught us off-guard with its subtle themes, this sequel more than lives up to the hype, dramatically expanding the scale of the action while letting the actors deepen their characters. It's a full-on action epic that cleverly retains author Suzanne Collins' narrative trick of telling the story through a flawed perspective. And it provides the needed push to give the whole saga real momentum.

We join our heroes not long after the last film ended: Katniss and Peeta (Lawrence and Hutcherson) are in trouble for challenging the authority of President Snow (Sutherland) and sowing the seeds of rebellion in the districts. Now they have to travel around the nation with their team - drunken mentor Haymitch (Harrelson), preening manager Effie (Banks), quietly subversive designer Cinna (Kravitz) - soothing ruffled feathers. But of course they only make things worse. So new Gamesmaker Plutarch (Hoffman) plots a way to force them back into the games with all of the past victors, so they can be wiped out for good. And Katniss is so busy worrying about protecting Peeta that she fails to remember who the true enemy is.

Screenwriters Beaufoy and deBruyn (aka Oscar-winner Michael Arndt) inventively maintain Katniss' narrow, inaccurate point-of-view right through the film, which keeps the audience wrong-footed all the way to the end. It's an exhilarating trick that makes the tour of the districts painfully dull and the return to the games utterly horrifying. It also gives Lawrence the chance to flex her own Oscar-winning chops, further tormenting us with her inability to choose between two good men: Peeta and Gale (Hemsworth), her pal back home. She certainly doesn't trust newcomers like the mouthy Johanna (Malone) or the too-hunky Finnick (Claflin).

The Butler Review


OK

This is an strangely slushy movie from Lee Daniels, whose last two films (Precious and The Paperboy) bristled with unexpected life. By contrast, this star-packed drama uses a true story to trace the Civil Rights struggle from the 1950s to the present day. But it's been so fictionalised that it feels kind of like a variation on Forrest Gump.

Cecil Gaines (Whitaker) grew up on a Georgia cotton plantation, where the cruel master's kindly mother (Redgrave) taught him to be a house servant. Years later, he marries Gloria (Winfrey) and moves to Washington DC, where he gets a job in the White House as a butler to presidents from Eisenhower (Williams) to Reagan (Rickman). His job description is simple: "You hear nothing, you see nothing, you only serve." And yet as the nation grapples with its racist culture, he has a quiet influence on each leader who moves through the house.

Whitaker narrates the film in drawling flashbacks, while the story flickers between Cecil and his eldest son Louis (Oyelowo), an activist who is involved in every key moment in the Civil Rights movement. And their younger son (Kelley) is sent to Vietnam. So it's like a condensed version of late 20th century American history, made notable by the lively cast of cameo players including Marsden (as JFK), Schreiber (LBJ), Ellis (MLK) and Cusack (Nixon), plus Fonda as a lively Nancy Reagan.
