Four ‘babes’ with loads of charm


Four lovable young Durban actors are the babes in KickstArt’s Christmas family panto, Robin Hood and The Babes in the Wood, which is proving a big hit at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, where it runs until January 9th month.

Two rounds of exhaustive auditions were held to get two pairs of babes, aged nine to 12, to play the children in the demonstrate.

Of those children chosen, two did tremendously well in the Gateway Road to Fame singing competition at Umhlanga’s Barnyard Theatre, while the additional two have appeared for KickstArt in shows such as Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh.

There are two pairs of babes in the demonstrate – Lindsey Morris, 11, from Westville and Joshua Arnold, 12, from Umbilo, who alternating with Kiara Teunissen, 9, from Westbrook and Andrew Sutton, 10, from Mount Edgecombe.

The kids are integral to the panto – the plot combines elements of the babes-lost-in-the-forest story based on an old English ballad of 1595 (the unique manuscript is preserved in the British Museum), which tells the story of two orphaned children, abandoned deep in the forest upon the orders of their evil uncle.

This tale is combined with the Robin Hood legend and a enormous dollop of comedy in the form of Robin Hood’s motley crew of merry men in tights, a actually villainous sheriff (Iain “Ewok” Robinson) and an unforgettable dame, Nurse satisfactorily (Darren King).

Before she was one half of the most holy and blessed union ever to be feature on television, however, Laurel Holloman was already on the radar of gay girls everywhere recognizable with the lesbian film catalogue of the mid-90s.

Teen star of Western a girl on a mission


Stealing scenes from Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin is barely child's play.

Yet, in True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld - a 13-year-old at the time - not only holds her own beside the seasoned performers but also establishes herself as one of a handful of pint-size actors who gave Oscar-worthy portrayals this year.

In the new screen version by the Coen brothers of the picaresque 1968 novel by Charles Portis, she is a energy to be reckoned with.

Steinfeld has the plum role of Mattie Ross, a pigtail-wearing angel of revenge bent on tracking and killing the no-good felon who slew her father and took his horse and cash.

With an unshakable faith in her Protestant ethic and her justice, Mattie gets to work hiring one-eyed, trigger-happy U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Bridges, reprising the role played by John Wayne in the innovative 1969 film) and striking a deal with an egocentric Texas Ranger (Damon).

Black Swan Review: The Price Of Perfection


Nina Sayer, the prima ballerina in Darren Aronofsky’s new thriller, Black Swan, strives for excellence, pirouetting and plieing with technique blameless, but without feeling; a master of precision without depth. Black Swan is structured around her yearning for the release from her self-imposed confines, her inability to let go, and find the passion in her art. Black Swan is visually arresting, expressively assaulting, a masterwork of technique and passion that feels similar to Aronofsky has truly found his own Black Swan within.

At the beginning of the film Nina’s dancing, like Aronofsky’s first three films, feels unfilled. Every step is completely timed, practiced, and thoroughly thought through. What Nina (Natalie Portman) lacks is the emotional connection to the movements that could motivate an audience. She is told as much from the New York City Ballet Company’s director, Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel), as he tries to select the latest Swan Queen for his production of Swan Lake. After flubbing her audition for the fraction, Nina wants to change Thomas’ mind, but when faced with having to push for what she wants, Nina backs down. Thomas challenges her, forcefully grabbing her in a kiss. Originally she gives in, only to bite back literally. She fears this may have ended her career, but by drawing blood Nina proved there was a darkness inside her that could be the absent piece in her achieving perfection.

It seems odd, then, that leaked excerpts of Palins’ latest book are very serious of reality television (specifically American Idol), essentially refudiating the very genre from which she benefits so greatly.

Unless you’ve been living on an Arctic ice floe, you are well conscious of Sarah Palin’s evolving relationship with the mainstream media, and her possess mega-budget, Mark Burnett-produced reality show. Many media critics have openly recommended that the reality show is nothing more than an expensive political campaign ad designed to demonstrate how normal Ms. Palin’s life is, but with exciting family adventures, each coincidentally proving the inborn strength and decisiveness of the former Alaska Governor.

TV Review: Harry Loves Lisa


I have an inordinate liking for Lisa Rinna, one that has a long, convoluted back-story involving her arc on Veronica Mars, opposite her real-life husband Harry Hamlin. So TV Land’s fresh reality show, Harry Loves Lisa, hits all my sweet spots. Lisa Rinna being outrageous in my living room on a weekly basis? Yes, please.

What’s more surprising about the demonstrate is Hamlin. He’s always seemed like a stunted action movie star, someone whose career never actually took off, stranding him at C-plus level. Yet in real life (or “real” life), he comes across as a pleasant, intelligent man. His lisping impression of a gay director request him to drop trou during an audition for Equus in the '70s is borderline offensive, but he also played gay in the 1982 film Making Love, a film that comes up continually in interviews with him and which Hamlin has stated frequently he is proud of.

The Wanted’s Jay Criticises Cheryl Cole


Jay from The Wanted is the newest star to question Cheryl Cole’s choices on The X Factor.

The Girls Aloud star has caused debate by putting through both Katie Waissell and Cher Lloyd, despite dodgy final auditions.

And it seems one fifth of the hottest fresh boy band around agrees with many members of the public.

He said: What is the point of doing your audition if it is not base on that? If she had made up her mind previously then why not everyone just go after the first audition and not bother auditioning again.

Sometimes it's a bit heart-wrenching when you look at someone gets crushed but it gets people talking.

The Pumpkins, peeled


AN OUTSIDER could possibly argue there is something inherently tragic about Billy Corgan in 2010.

As the bandleader and chief songwriter of the Smashing Pumpkins, Corgan was a determining 1990s figure during the most vital period of modern rock. Yet although the grunge era produced many immense records, much of it was underpinned by a slacker ethos that sits awkwardly with Corgan.

He was, and relics, an obsessive control freak and workaholic with an ludicrously deep-seated self-belief in his music.

The new CW drama could just as simply have been Cheerios. The set-up is what should be an awkward lift from the cheerleading squad on Glee. All that's missing is Sue Sylvester. Hellcats badly need a character as richly realized.
