New Disney Pixar ALERT! Day of the Dead themed animation Coco brings some much needed diversity to the Pixar stable and it's supposed to be delightful, colourful and bound to win the Best Animation Oscar this year. The film is out today and is suitable for kids and big kids aka you...cause let's face it you're living in arrested development and it's not your fault and you try and forget about it by watching Disney films. Too real?

"Streep. Hanks. Spielberg." reads the poster. You had is at STREEP! Meryl is in fine form, putting in another barnstorming performance and dusting off the old wig and teeth combo that won her her third Oscar for The Iron Lady. This time it's 70s set The Post, revolving around the American government's move to suppress the Washington Post going public with information around the government's lies around the Vietnam war. Timely in the era of fake news (and fake teeth...seriously Meryl loves a character denture!)

In all cinemas NOW.

Not on proper telly but on American telly and then naughty torrent sites, this week sees the debut of gay TV god Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story: The Assassination of Giani Versace also known as...Darren Criss in Speedos.

Following the critically acclaimed OJ Simpson story told in the first season, this season explicitly looks at the life of the gay fashion designer. Penelope Cruz stars as Donatella, which will be camp! But as we learnt with Ryan Murphy's most recent series Feud, he can make what looks like a camp story turn into something much deeper.

This Guardian review says we're in for a real treat...

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/jan/17/assassination-gianni-versace-american-crime-story-review

It should be coming to the UK later in the year, probably to BBC2 like the first series and Feud

 

UNTIL NEXT WEEK...

BE LOUD, BE PROUD AND MAKE A SCENE!
