“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Deep stuff there from the master of children’s stories, Dr Seuss. Sadly it seems that the makers of the film version did not care at all, because The Lorax is a multicoloured mess. The Lorax shoves anti-capitalism messages in your face faster than a bear can shove marshmallows into its mouth. That probably makes a bit more sense if you have already seen the film. Take it from me though, it is pretty darn fast.
A fly-on-the-wall glimpse into Katy Perry’s tour for the embarrassingly successful album Teenage Dream, what the film lacks in intellect and subtlety, it more than makes up for in heart, in a surprisingly engaging and charming look into the life of a popstar who is as starkly real as she is glossily artificial.
The Smurfs 3D attempts to tackle the ultimate question: what DO you do when cuddly blue money-spinners get lodged in your toilet? It turns out the answer is: get self-referential, mother SMURFERS. Harmless, silly fun along the lines of Elf and Enchanted, Smurfs 3D does a fair job of appealing to humans big and small – but it does feel like everyone’s aware that this is fluff and nothing more. Nothing smurf? Smurfing more? You’ll pick it up.
Russell Brand never fails to surprise us with his kooky ways and today’s release of hilarious snaps, featuring him flouncing around in a Batman suit, are no exception. Brand donned the costume for a scene in the remake of the 1981 film Arthur, which is currently being shot in New York.
Wow, the smurf news just keeps piling up this week. First we hear that Neil Patrick Harris is set to play some kind of human in the upcoming Smurf film, and today it’s been revealed that Smurfette – will be voiced by music star Katy Perry. Well, at least as the only female smurf in the midst there’ll be no fear of her kissing any girls and liking it.
