Movie badness

I call myself an entertainment writer. I guess that's what I am. I write about entertainment news, I review tv shows (okay I review A tv show), I review albums and interview musicians. I suppose that qualifies me as an entertainment writer.

I fail a little when it comes to movies though. In my own mind, I know a lot about movies. I've seen hundreds, maybe thousands. But compared to other people my knowledge is shocking. My tastes in film might not be the best but I know what I like. I know what looks good, can spot bad acting and failing plotlines, complain when a comedy is not actually funny.

But there is occasionally good that can come from bad movies. Sometimes they are so awful that they become entertaining. I'm sure everyone has settled down in front of a film and thought, "this is crap" but continued to watch and found that in spite of the lameness, you are enjoying it.

Take a look at this list of  movies that are so bad, they're good. Feel free to leave your favourites in the comments!

Pretty Little Liars recap

Hey guys! I am SO sorry for not updating yesterday! I had one of those crazy days where you don't know if you're coming or going! I know it's a little late but here is my Recap of Pretty Little Liars episode Please, Talk About Me When I'm Gone

Pretty Little Liars Goodness

Although I am a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars, it is certainly not without faults. I have made honest judgements when writing recaps of the show because it doesn't feel right to just say the positive things and not point out the bad things. Liking a show does not (or shouldn't) make you blind to its faults.

That said, this week's episode of Pretty Little Liars was absolutely superb. Amazing acting all around from the girls. Is it weird that although Toby Cavanaugh is creepy, I cannot help but find him a little bit hot? :D

Anyways, if you need a recap of what happened this week, take a look at me Recap of Pretty Little Liars episode There's No Place Like Homecoming

The X Factor is coming.....

Huh, that sounds kinda ominous! :p

Still more bad news on Cheryl Cole today. Although the X Factor will be returning to our screens soon, with Cheryl's condition getting worse, it's looking more and more certain that she won't make any of this series. Even if she starts to get better tomorrow, she has many weeks of recovery to get through. The show will not be the same without her! Latest news on her condition is that Cheryl Cole has fluid on her lungs. That is really not a good sign but I am still sending out constant good thoughts to her that she begins to get better soon.

On a slightly less depressing note - Leona Lewis has been in the news recently for slating reality television shows - you know - like the one she came from. It gives the impression that she is getting a bit big for her boots, and that once shy girl who appeared on the X Factor has suddenly forgotten that reality tv was the thing that made her famous. She made a claim recently that X Factor is no longer about music and more about theatrics and it got me thinking. X Factor was ALWAYS about theatrics. Judges fighting, tactical voting, angry outbursts - it's been there all along! For further proof, take a look at one of my newest articles: X Factor is a Pantomime

That's all for this week's entertainment news (unless anything major happens later!). Hope you all have a great weekend!

Cheryl Cole Update, plus Pretty Little Liars Recap!

I'm gutted to report the news that Cheryl Cole's malaria is not getting any better yet. I was hoping to wake up to hear that the worst was over, but unfortunately the nation's sweetheart is still in intensive care. :( Keep fighting Cheryl, we know you're tough enough to do it!

In other news, Pretty Little Liars was on yesterday! YAY! I am ITCHING to make Pretty Little Liars graphics but I have got a ton of articles to write before I can consider slacking off! Anyways - watched the episode this morning and it was pretty good. Not one of my favourites but every now and again these slower episodes need to happen to prepare us for the bigger events!

Flashforward Update

Just when I thought Flashforward Fridays were done, this one came along!

It has been a loooong time since I posted anything on my blog, let alone Flashforward stuff, but I won't weigh you down with all the details. I will just let you know that the fight to save Flashforward is not over yet and today there was a little more good news:

All of the Flashforward info you could need is contained in that article, so I will leave it there for today! Have a great weekend!
