Wizard King Daniel Radcliffe tells how the fame of Harry Potter led him down the path of booze
Very rarely does a simple, earth-bound trailer makes us want to weep with joy. This is one of those times.
At Cheat Sheet Villas (it’s a granny flat in the grounds of Best For Film Towers), we’re always on the lookout for stars with a less extravagant public profile than the Britneys and LiLos of the world; then we expose them and shamelessly drag all their secrets into the merciless light of day like squirming vampire children being torn from their coffins. This week, it’s the turn of screenwriter extraordinaire Jane Goldman!
I don’t know about you, but we’re hoping for really crummy weather this summer. Rain, sleet, fog and whatever else God’s got in his “let’s piss them right off” bag; it’s the only way that we won’t feel guilty about spending the entire time at the cinema. A lot of heavy hitters are coming our way in summer 2011, so give up on your tan (lets be honest, you’ve been a lost cause from the start) and throw away any sunny specs that aren’t 3D compatible – it’s cinema summer checklist time.
At the turn of the millennium, while we ordinary folk were struggling with our spelling, the Harry Potter Three; Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint were being pampered and preened, photographed and photoshopped, and showered with riches. It’s enough to give us ordinary folk a severe case of heebie-jeebie jealousy. Most importantly, it’s enough to send the trio abso-Jackson-lutely mental. Here, we provide the frankest, honestest account of the baffling circus that became the lives of the cursed stars from 2011 to the present day (which is 2031, of course).
Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at the BAFTA awards to going to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure- the Harry Potter films. We decided to celebrate this achievement by taking a trip down memory lane and working out what was so good, which bits were so bad and what on earth some of it was all about.
Whether it be Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace breaking it down 1950s style in Pulp Fiction, or Harry and Hermione’s awkward pas de deux in those Potter films, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten dances in movie history. Let their mistakes be your guide to what and what not to do this Friday night down the club.
