Hotel That Inspired 'Fawlty Towers' Is Demolished


FAWLTY TOWERS John Cleese Prunella Scales ANDREW SACHS Connie Booth

The seaside hotel in Torquay that inspired John Cleese to make the iconic BBC sitcom ‘FAWLTY TOWERS’ is to be demolished in order to make way for the construction of retirement homes.

Cleese, who co-created the legendary comedy series, stayed at the Gleneagles Hotel in 1971 with his ‘Monty Python’ colleagues when they were in the area filming ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’, and he and the rest of the party were flabbergasted at the stony reception he received from the hotel’s owner Donald Sinclair.

Horrid Henry: The Movie Review


Bad
Based on the books and animated TV series, this far-too-childish 3D comedy is pretty painful to watch for audiences of any age, as the cast and crew overplay every gag. Which means that nothing is funny.

Henry (Stevenson) is a precocious pre-teen with an aversion to homework. His parents (Horne and Hayes) try to spur him on, but he continues to annoy his teacher Miss Battleaxe (Huston) and headmistress Miss Oddbod (Front), while waging war on nemesis Margaret (Stitt). When a local private-school headmaster (Grant) plots to steal the students, Henry realises that saving his school is his only option. Now working with Margaret, his high-achieving little brother Peter (Marron) and the super-nice Miss Lovely (Nagra), they put a plan in motion.

Horrid Henry: The Movie Trailer


Henry's never meant to be horrid, but that's just what all the adults (and some children) consider him. If there are worms in someone's sandwich or if there's itching powder in your bed, you can bet Henry's the one who's done it.

Howards End Review


Excellent
After 35 years of toiling and only one hit to their name (A Room with a View), the directing-producing team of Merchant-Ivory finally hit their stride with Howards End, a work that would become synonymous with their names and the template for their unmistakable style.

Slow, intricate, and deeply symbolic, Howards End ranks among the top films in their oeuvre. It's a history that, if you look at it closely, really amounts to three greats (End, Room, and The Remains of the Day) and a whole lot of nothing-much-else. But that's a subject for another day.

An Awfully Big Adventure Review


Good
Georgina Cates, what has become of you?

In the year 1995 and at the age of 20, the fair-skinned redhead had what was arguably her biggest and most noteworthy role in An Awfully Big Adventure, then took smaller and smaller roles in smaller and smaller films until vanishing completely from the movies in 1999. (Does a 1997 marriage to Skeet Ulrich have anything to do with it? Who can say.
