“Blockbuster FRIDY” This week 2nd Hollywood movie Grace of Monaco IDIL Rating: * * ½ Stars Cast: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Frank Langella, Geraldine Somerville, Derek Jacobi, Nicholas Farrell, Roger Ashton-Griffiths Direction: Olivier Dahan Genre: Biopic Duration: 1 hour 42 minutes Story: Hollywood actress Grace Kelly marries into royalty. The film looks at how she manages her own identity amidst a political crisis between Monaco and France. Review: The idea of Hollywood screen legend Grace Kelly (Kidman) marrying into European royalty seems like a fairytale come true. As with most things that are too good to be true, however, all is not well in this royal household. There are murmurs of intrigue, shadows of suspicion and dollops of doubt. In short, the royal affair seems riven with various undercurrents and enough fodder, seemingly, for a meaty story. Set in the early '60s and a few years after she gave up her career, Grace has kids and lives the cosseted life of a princess. As she was not ...

Yet another day, during which no credible evidence has been presented to refute my theory --that either through some slow and curious magic or subtle thespian spell, Sir Derek Jacobi is gradually becoming Dame Judy Dench.
**Season 8 Doctor Who Actor / Character Return Spoiler** .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. Um... so... Charles Dance / Tywin Lannister as the next Master in Doctor Who? Wow. Yes, please. Please, yes. This is supposedly an official leaked promo poster. Note: It is possible that it isn't the Master. That's just the most likely assumption, that its an incarnation of the Master that was stranded on Gallifrey between the classic Who versions and the Derek Jacobi version of Utopia (where he escaped from the Gallifrey of the Time War to the ends of the universe... Which would place this version as from during the Time War, which we deal with in Day of the Doctor.) I will be thrilled to see this happen. I originally wouldn't have wanted many other people than John Simm's return to be the Master, but Charles Dance was definitely on my list of those I would have accepted.
that's no way to talk about Sir Derek Jacobi

These "Fun Facts" are about the 1996 Disney film, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame:" (1) The "Hellfire" song was almost cut from the film due to its dark themes. (2) Blue and red were used to signify good and evil. Both Quasimodo and Esmeralda wore blue and Frollo's face was red in the fire. (3) Two of the gargoyles are named Victor and Hugo after Victor Hugo, the author of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." (4) Patrick Stewart, Derek Jacobi and Ian "Gandalf" McKellan were considered to voice the role of Frollo, before they cast Tony Jay. (5) In the original novel, Frollo was an Archdeacon, not a judge. And in the book, he was a compassionate, intelligent man alienated from society, undone by his obsession with Esmerelda.
So, if Derek Jacobi had just let Gary Oldman choke on that cherry the movie would have been so short!

When he was about 3 or 4 years old, he decided to become an actor, inspired by his love of the BBC show "Doctor Who." He was brought up in Bathgate, West Lothian and Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland and was a huge fan of the band The Proclaimers. He attended Paisley Grammar school and while there he wrote about how he wanted to become a professional actor and play the role of the Doctor in "Doctor Who." He made his first television appearance (which was also his first professional acting job) when he was 16, after his father sent some photos of him to a casting director at Scottish television.

Best of Rape and Revenge Movies - 69 Revengers Tragedy (2002) A great mix of dementia, dialogue and dam fine scouse Storyline From cult director Alex Cox (Repo Man; Sid and Nancy) comes this modernised adaptation of Thomas Middleton's celebrated play from 1607. It tells the story of a man whose wife is murdered on their wedding day and his desire to exact revenge on the murderer. Set in a post-apocalyptic Liverpool of the future, Vindici (Christopher Eccleston - Let Him have It; Elizabeth; 28 Days Later; Tv's Dr Who) returns from a self-imposed exile to bring down those responsible for his wife's murder. While his family have fallen on hard times, the murderer - known as The Duke (Derek Jacobi - Day of the Jackal; Gosford Park; Tv's- I Claudius) - has become rich. Director: Alex Cox Writers: Frank Cottrell Boyce (adaptation), Thomas Middleton (play) Stars: Christopher Eccleston, Kevin Knapman, Michael Ryan
I've never wanted to see much more of Harold Pinter than a bit here or there, until last night, watching Derek Jacobi and Michael Gambon brilliantly perform a scene from "No Man's Land," during the 50th anniversary celebration of Britain's National Theatre that PBS aired as part of their Great Performances series. Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job with the coin-tossing scene from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," as well. Unfortunately I had to stop there. Fortunately it's still on the DVR for later. :) The only thing better would be a complete performance of Rosencrantz.

Sharing a wall with Mr. Blondey is fun when he plays movies with Kenneth Branagh and Derek Jacobi in them.
It will be interesting (and tempting to compare). Did you see Derek Jacobi in the role at BAM? That was memorable.
