Featuring those who knew him best including family, colleagues and friends, Robin Williams – Come Inside My Mind is a new documentary offering an intimate look into the life and work of the late comedian…
Featured friends include Billy Crystal, Steve Martin….
I’m in because he was great; on film, on stage and through his often very wise words.
When I think of Williams, first I see the pie covered face of Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) one of his most iconic characters. Then I try to remember my favourite of his many great quotes…
‘What is right is what is left if you do everything else wrong.’
Directed by Jessica Leski, I Used To Be Normal – A Boyband Fangirl Story is a new documentary about four different women whose lives were dramatically changed by their love of a boyband – The Beatles, Take That, Backstreet Boys and One Direction.
Hopefully this documentary won’t make too many people think that fans of boybands are all obsessed in the same way the ladies in this documentary are.
Back in my boyband loving days, I had posters on my walls and fantasised about marrying a certain boyband member. Overall though, I think that if anyone would have had the power to turn me into a screaming, jumping, crying and fainting kind of fan, it would have probably been Michael Jackson. May he rest.
Which pop culture icons are you or were you screaming, jumping, crying and fainting kind of obsessed with?

Having not lived during the Elvis era, I’m interested to learn about his influence, good and bad.
Penguins is a new Disney Nature documentary made in celebration of Earth Day 2019.
This new story is centred around Steve, an Adélie penguin who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family…
I’ll declare it now, I’m in for the cuteness. Everything else is secondary – including my desire to find out whether all penguins in search of a mate actually end up finding one. I’d of course, very much love the answer to be yes.
