Classics never die, but they seldom get replaced. Cinema is populated with enduring, venerated works of art that deservedly adorn list after list, but those lists are rarely updated, and less often expanded to include new, equally worthy entries. Organizations that give out annual awards are constrained not only by the limitations of formatting, but perspective - they can’t anticipate which film will survive the buzz of its initial acclaim or success and become part of the cultural firmament. And then there are just certain films or even genres that too infrequently receive the critical attention they deserve, are too obscure to break through to bigger audiences, or just aren’t taken seriously enough to merit consideration alongside the ones we “all” already know we love or respect. A Case For Greatness, this series, tries to argue for, and to champion, forgotten or underappreciated films in a variety of genres that may be worthy of being called … [Read more...] about A Case For Greatness: EYES WIDE SHUT

BINKY Felstead regularly shares snaps of her incredible, gym-honed figure with her 1.4million followers on Instagram. But, despite the hoards of compliments from fans that follow, the stunning 28-year-old Made In Chelsea star - who gave birth to 13-month-old daughter India in June last year with boyfriend Joshua 'JP' Patterson - tells us she hasn't always felt so body confident. In an exclusive chat with The Sun Online, the gorgeous reality favourite opened up about her heart-breaking belief that her "bigger" post-baby body was "disgusting". Speaking about the months after she gave birth, Binky explained: "When I gave birth to India I was bigger. I felt disgusting. "I had a summer baby so it was hot and I just couldn't find anything nice to wear as none of my clothes seemed to fit. "It felt like my identity had gone, and I had lost my confidence." Binky, who is close to former co-stars Louise Thompson and Rosie Fortescue, admitted she couldn't help but compare herself to her … [Read more...] about Binky Felstead says she thought her ‘bigger’ post-baby body was ‘disgusting’ and reveals emotional struggle to get body confidence back after giving birth to India
Far Cry 5 is a game at war with itself. Not just in terms of the civil war between the game's citizenry and the militant religious cult terrorising them - no, Far Cry 5’s internal conflict goes deeper. Its tone and mechanics are woefully inconsistent, rendering nearly the best game in the series a frustrating exercise in half-measures. Far Cry 5 puts players in the shoes of an unnamed (and customisable) police deputy sent to Hope County, Montana, a region under the thrall of a militant doomsday cult known as the Project at Eden's Gate. After an attempt to arrest cult leader Joseph Seed goes horribly awry, your rookie cop finds themselves stranded in Hope County, their colleagues kidnapped and cultists hot on their tail. For reasons not made entirely clear, calling for backup or leaving the area in one of many available aircraft are not viable options, so it's up to you to rescue your colleagues and bring down the Project. This is where the war begins, in more ways than … [Read more...] about FAR CRY 5 Game Review: Bullets In Big Sky
PERIODS are painful and irritating to endure, but it's really important to keep an eye on them – because prolonged irregularity could be a major warning sign of a bigger health issue. So how do you know when something's amiss with your monthly cycle? We asked Anna Druet, chief science researcher at ovulation tracking app Clue, to advise. She says: "Firstly, it's important to define what exactly is 'normal' and what is 'irregular' when it comes to periods. "A 'normal' period usually refers to a period that typically happens every 24 to 38 days for adults, and lasts between four to eight days. In that time, you can shed anything between 5-80ml of blood (that's up to six tablespoons). An average period sheds two to three tablespoons (35-40ml) of blood and tissue. People who are in the upper five to six tablespoons are considered to have heavy menstrual bleeding. "The typical 5-80ml amount would use between three to 16 regular absorbency tampons or pads per cycle, but you can also … [Read more...] about Ask the Expert: Should I be worried about my irregular periods?
PUBLISHED: 10:41 28 March 2018 | UPDATED: 10:41 28 March 2018 Stacia Briggs Queer Eye's crew: Bobby, Karamo, Antoni, Jonathan and Tan Netflix Netflix’s reboot of the makeover show blends gay rights with moisturiser, police brutality with scatter cushions and racism with guacamole - it shouldn’t work, but it absolutely does. Queer Eye is an antidote to almost every horrible thing. Here’s why you have to watch it. I was overjoyed when I heard that there was set to be a revival of the 2003 show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and after I watched it – and loved it – even more delighted to hear that the Fab Five will be back for a second season. Now simply answering to the name Queer Eye, the show features five ludicrously handsome and suave gay men who act like practical superheroes: while they can’t shoot webs or fly, they can take a hideous bedsit and make it beautiful and take an unkempt man and make him gorgeous. That’s the kind of … [Read more...] about Netflix’s Queer Eye is brilliant in so many ways
