Mommie Dearest (1981) Director: Frank Perry Starring: Faye Dunaway, Diana Scarwid, Mara Hobel A camp, cult and crazy classic of epic proportions.

TV Corner: Top Ten Cartoon Theme Songs

A relatively quiet week in the world of cinema means that I am able to dip my toe in to TV Corner, this time combining it with another post style that I have neglected of late, the top ten list. Anybody that knows me will tell you that when it comes to childhood cartoons, theme…

Though ever present and always offering up enjoyable and well received pictures like Megamind, Madagascar and the early instalments of the Shrek series, the studio sits very much in third place…

TV Corner: House Of Cards (Season 3)

I held back for a couple of weeks before writing this season review, keeping in mind the fact that most House Of Cards viewers, unlike myself, would sensibly pace themselves to both savour the show and maintain the order of their personal and professional lives. Unfortunately, that kind of rational is not for me, and…
