Ben Earl: Trick Artist
1x01 Crime
With Dynamo snaffled up by whichever cable/satellite-channel-I-don't-get it is that he's on, here's Channel 4's latest answer to him -- and, I presume, intended Derren Brown replacement, as he seems to do fewer and fewer TV programmes. Initial impressions are OK, but he doesn't have quite the same wow factor as the other two.

this week on 100 Films

Just two new reviews were published to 100 Films in a Year this week...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: Extended Version (2001/2004)
Included on the film’s original DVD release back in 2002, albeit under a series of frustrating mini-games, were six short deleted sequences and one extended one… and it’s those and those alone that were added back into the film in 2004.
Read more here.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Extended Version (2002/2005)
The difference in running time is 13½ minutes, spread across 19 differen extensions.... Unsurprisingly, many are of little significance, often just fleshing out minor characters or adding comedy beats. So are any especially beneficial?
Find out here.

And nothing new to the new blog! Oops.

Still, more next Sunday.
