A Concert for Heroes
Recorded it and watched an hour behind so I could fastforward the boring bits. No, not the charity stories -- the rubbish comedians and (copious) rubbish 'music' acts.

Help for Heroes concert, Twickenham Stadium, review by Neil McCormick
Pretty much spot on.

this week on 100 Films

2 new reviews were posted to 100 Films in a Year this week, and they were...

Bhaji on the Beach (1993)
The perspective is definitively female — no bad thing for a medium where, almost 20 years later, there are still few female directors, and those that garner the widest recognition tend to do so in typically male genres.

Bride & Prejudice (2004)
Melodramatic love story/stories? Check. A couple of over-acted comedy characters? Check. Characters bursting into song? Check. Bright, colourful, extravagant song-and-dance numbers? Check.

More next Sunday.
