Like many film critics, I started out to be a mortician, but got sidetracked. Yet vestiges of that childhood vocation linger on in my lifelong fascination with autopsies, particularly postmortems involving epic film failures. In this context, I have thought a lot about King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, a colossal bomb. There are many things wrong with the film – the story, the directing, the fact that the screenwriter forgot to include Merlin – but the biggest problem is the casting. A few months before the film was released, I started noticing posters advertising a star I didn’t immediately recognise. Somebody named Charlie Hunnam. “Do you know him?” I asked my son. “He’s the guy from Sons of Anarchy,” he replied. Well, precisely. He’s not Matt Damon. He’s not Brad Pitt. He’s not James Franco. He’s certainly not Denzel Washington or Jamie Foxx. He’s the guy from Sons of Anarchy, a reasonably popular cable TV … [Read more...] about Jude Law is one but Tom Hardy isn’t: what makes a movie star?

He had won bronze at the World Indoor Championships for Jamaica two years earlier. He claimed silver in Beijing, jumping a personal best 2.34 metres to finish behind Russian Andrey Silnov.

From icons of music to actors from a galaxy far, far away - 2016 seems to have been a particularly cruel year when it comes to celebrity deaths. A number of much-loved famous faces have passed away since the beginning of the year - from chart-topping and pioneering musicians, to acclaimed actors, actresses, authors, figureheads of cultural and political movements, iconic sporting heroes and national treasures.

So 2016 has almost come to an end, and it’s hard to forgot some of the crazy events of the year. From unforeseeable political changes (unless you can predict the future just like The Simpsons, who called Donald Trump’s presidency) to a shocking number of unexpected celebrity deaths in 2016, nobody could have predicted the events of the last 12 months. Nonetheless, it’s worth remembering some of the amazing things that happened this year, too. From Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning that Oscar to Danny Dyer discovering he is legitimately related to royalty, here’s some of our highlight moments of the last 12 months. Leonardo DiCaprio wins an Oscar, finally! We loved him in Titanic, we were awed by him in Inception, we marvelled him in The Wolf Of Wall Street. But it was 2016 movie The Revenant that finally won Leo his well-deserved Oscar in February this year. Which was a relief, as we couldn't take another year of the tension if he didn't get the gong in … [Read more...] about The most AMAZING things that happened in 2016 — it’s not all bad guys!
This year has seen the deaths of some of the world's most treasured stars. In a year like no other we have lost well-loved celebrities including international pop stars, TV stalwarts and iconic actors. January had only just begun when we heard of the death of music legend David Bowie, who had kept his cancer hidden from the public eye. The sad news of well-loved stars' deaths continued throughout the year, with international icons including Prince, Muhammad Ali and Leonard Cohen passing away. More recently, December saw the deaths of well-loved comic treasure Andrew Sachs as well as food writer AA Gill and world-renowned Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro. Brits lost a whole host of stars made famous in the world of TV, from national gem Sir Terry Wogan to the man who masterminded Coronation Street, Tony Warren.

Let’s face it, 2016 has been a pretty miserable year when it comes to losing some of our best loved celebrities. From January, when we shockingly and unexpectedly lost David Bowie – with Alan Rickman and Sir Terry Wogan following in quick succession – through to a Christmas period which has seen us lose George Michael and Carrie Fisher, it’s hard to comprehend the parade of stars we bid farewell to. In fact, add in the likes of Prince, Victoria Wood, Harper Lee, Sir George Martin, Caroline Aherne, Jean Alexander, Gene Wilder, David Gest, Pete Burns and Leonard Cohen, and the past twelve months has been pretty unrelenting. All of which has beggared the question: just why has 2016 been so unusually awful when it comes to celebrities shuffling off this mortal coil? Well, much of it could be down to the sheer proliferation of celebrities who we admire and are inspired by these days, and often who shaped our childhoods and the person we ultimately became. The number … [Read more...] about From David Bowie to George Michael, why have so many iconic celebrities died in 2016?
Let’s face it, 2016’s been a pretty terrible year for losing celebrities – from David Bowie’s sad death in January to the deaths of George Michael and Carrie Fisher over Christmas. But this man has found a way to touchingly pay tribute to them, and all the other notables that we have bid farewell to in 2016 – in this recreation of the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper album. The work, by British artist Chris Barker, has been doing the rounds for a while now, but in the wake of all the sad losses over the festive season, it’s had a bit of an update – and has subsequently gone viral. ‘This is so sad. I feel awful,’ he told his followers as he posted the new image on Twitter. Others who feature in the picture include Bowie and George Michael, as well as Sir Terry Wogan, Prince, Ronnie Corbett, Victoria Wood, Caroline Aherne, Gene Wilder and many others from the worlds of music, film, TV and sport who died in 2016.

Death won't spare anyone; even the most outstanding artists must leave us some day, unfortunately. But the deaths of several icons of popular music in 2016 and the ways in which they died have hardly left anyone unmoved. In the early 1980s, it was still mostly the greats of jazz, blues and classical music, who typically died of old age - when death is seen as a natural phenomenon and unavoidable fate. But even back then, when it came to the deaths of pop icons it was rarely down to natural causes that they passed on: John Lennon was shot in 1980, AC/DC frontman Bon Scott died of alcohol poisoning, and Joy Division singer Ian Curtis committed suicide at the age of 25. This string of untimely deaths continued throughout that decade: reggae star Bob Marley died of cancer, Marvin Gaye was killed by his father in 1984, Metallica bassist Cliff Burton died from an accident on a tour bus. In the 1990s, Queen singer Freddie Mercury died from Aids in 1991 while Kurt Cobain committed suicide in … [Read more...] about Why music has actually not died in 2016

A woman has paid tribute to celebrities who died in 2016 in the form of angel decorations to hang on her Christmas tree. As well as adding angel wings to stars including David Bowie, Prince and Victoria Wood, she also added them to the EU and a Toblerone. The 36-year-old from York, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Press Association, "I wanted to pay tribute and I wanted to cheer everybody up - 2016 has been a difficult year. "Cutting out the EU angel was the one that made me shed the most tears.
