Road to ‘Fallout’: How ‘Mission: Impossible’ Became the Best Modern Action Franchise

Talk about impossible: somehow, Mission: Impossible has blossomed into the best modern-day action franchise. Since 1996, Tom Cruise has been inviting audiences along as he defies the odds, risks his life, runs like hell, and delivers increasingly entertaining adventures. Unlike most franchises, Mission: Impossible has generally improved with each subsequent entry. Now, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is ready to draw us in once again. Before the film arrives, we’ve decided to accept the most dang...

Call the Midwife ~ Jennifer Worth

A few weeks ago, at the end of another memorable series of Call the Midwife on BBC 1, I had a bit of a pang. And whilst I dare say plenty of people switch the TV off the minute they hear the theme music followed by the dulcet tones of the Vanessa Redgrave voice-over, Bookhound and I are settling down to watch in that Never Miss An Episode way that we do with a series that we really enjoy. We’ve watched every episode of every series, and all the Christmas specials. The babies slither out week af...

The 1,700+ Words Invented by Shakespeare*

One of the favorite reference books on my shelves isn’t a style guide or dictionary but a collection of insults. And not just any collection of insults, but Shakespeare’s Insults for Teachers, an illustrated guide through the playwright’s barbs and put-downs, designed to offer comic relief to the beleaguered educator. (Books and websites about Shakespeare’s insults almost constitute a genre in themselves.) I refer to this slim, humorous hardback every time discussions of Shakespeare get too pon...

Hear 55 Hours of Shakespeare’s Plays: The Tragedies, Comedies & Histories Performed by Vanessa Redgrave, Sir John Gielgud, Ralph Fiennes & Many More

The so-called “Great Vowel Shift” was a very unusual occurrence. During the period between around 1500 to around 1700, the English language “lost the purer vowel sounds of most European languages, as well as the phonetic pairing between long and short vowel sounds,” writes the site The History of English. Such radical linguistic change seems a "sudden and dramatic shift" historically, and “a peculiarly English phenomenon…. contemporary and neighboring languages like French, German an...

The Latest Cult Gucci Piece Was Actually Designed 100 Years Ago by an Old Duke

Gucci has a habit of creating cult buys, but the latest buzzy item it launched this month was actually designed 100 years ago by a late Duke. Back in September iPhones lifted when a model walked down the runway wearing a black jumper with the words 'Never Marry A Mitford' stitched across the front in red. You might think that a designer like Bella Freud started the slogan jumper trend, but it was perhaps the 11th Duke of Devonshire, who resided at Chatsworth House, who started wearing his feelin...

What Professional Communicators Can Learn From Oscar Acceptance Speeches

At its core, the Academy Awards are about celebrating the finest work in a given year of movies. But the actual presentation itself is anchored by the acceptance speeches, where viewers get to see celebrities at their most candid and real. These speeches often end up become some of the most unforgettable moments in a performer’s career; for instance, you may not recall Sally Field’s whole filmography or even the 1984 film “Places in the Heart,” for which she won a Best Actress Oscar, but you pro...

Happy Thanksgiving for yesterday America, I hope you had a good one and are all sitting with your feet up and recovering and in the mood for a conversation. And if anyone else wants to hide from Black Friday horrors (what madness is this?) please come in and hunker down here for the day. I have an endless supply of beverages and cake and maybe we could have a conversation about Joan Didion, because I would really welcome your thoughts.  I wonder, has anyone else watched the recently released d...

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Proves That Daisy Ridley Will Escape ‘Star Wars’

This year’s holiday movie season brings us arguably the most widely anticipated blockbuster of the entirety of 2017: Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

However, this weekend offers a glimpse into a possible future for one of the new stars of The Last Jedi, Daisy Ridley. Ridley, a rela...

The Simple Joys of Maindenhood

One of the things that always bothers me is any production of Camelot in which Guenevere is played all sweet and virginal, or in other words, like Julie Andrews played her in the original production. The truth is that Guenevere can be a real bitch from time to time, and I think that's what's most interesting about her -- and what directors and actors miss most often. Without that, the story is far less interesting.In many cases, original Broadway performances are reliable guides to what the wri...
