It’s more a case of David and Goliath than “Batman v Superman.” Indeed, while the two conflicting parties grappling for their versions of the truth in HBO’s explosive four-part documentary “Allen v. Farrow” are both Hollywood celebrities, you don’t need to be an expert at rocket science to realize just how powerful one is compared to the other. We’re talking about four-time Oscar-winning writer-actor-director Woody Allen (“Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and his muse-turned-nemesis actress Mia Farrow (“Rosemary’s Baby,” “The Great Gatsby”). In the ’80s and early ’90s, the fabled couple did 13 films together. Woody, who’s now 85 years old, has made a film every year for 40 straight years, and is now preparing to shoot his 51st film—how prolific can you get? Mia Farrow (right) with Ronan (left) and Dylan—PHOTO COURTESY OF HBO Power couple Woody and Mia were considered a Hollywood power couple until their 12-year romance (they never married and lived in … [Read more...] about ‘Allen v.

Christopher Plummer, who was among the greatest Canadian actors ever to grace stage and screen, has died at age 91. Plummer died Friday morning at his home in Connecticut with his wife, Elaine Taylor, by his side, said Lou Pitt, his longtime friend and manager. “Chris was an extraordinary man who deeply loved and respected his profession with great old fashion manners, self-deprecating humour and the music of words,” Pitt said in a statement to CBC News. “He was a national treasure who deeply relished his Canadian roots. “Through his art and humanity, he touched all of our hearts and his legendary life will endure for all generations to come.

I was reading the Harry Potter series when I was struck down by the flu in late January. I had a cough, minor temperature swings, dream sweats, and I couldn’t leave my bed for anything but the toilet or the easiest meals. Gumbo soup, pre-cooked chicken in bottled vindaloo sauce, hot and sour soup; the nursing skills of my normally destructive dog; Harry Potter, and watching ballet documentaries on my phone entertained me between long naps. I got tested earlier this week. I didn’t have COVID-19 . Only the cough and sweats fit. I could taste spicy food (it helped me cough), I had no energy to stand up in the shower. It was a run-of-the-mill flu but oh, my, I was bored in that gray space of illness. The impeachment trial of Donald Trump made me human. I watched it on my phone in real-time, read everything I could, watched documentaries about Q, read Twitter like it was the Heathers planning college visits. I knew, as I imagine most of us did, what the outcome of the trial would … [Read more...] about What Is the Ex-President Thinking?

Royal experts unearth Queen Elizabeth’s horrid favoritism towards Prince William over Prince Harry shocks royal fans. News regarding the Queen’s blatant favoritism has been brought forward in a Channel 5 documentary Prince Harry: The Troubled Prince by royal author Angela Levin and journalist Richard Kay. Ms. Levin believes, "The late Queen Mother would always invite Prince William over for tea and talk to him about his future and not invite Prince Harry." Even Mr. Kay added, “The Queen Mother always made sure Prince William was seated in a prominent seat next to her and Harry never was. Prince Charles shared Diana's concerns about making sure the boys shared things in their early years.” "But, certainly, more senior members of the royal family in private were saying: “This is nonsense. William is the future. All our efforts must go into educating William'.
