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.’

I USED TO BE NORMAL – A BOYBAND (2018): New Documentary About Boyband Fangirls…

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?

Cecil Beaton is known for being an Academy Award-winning costume designer, respected photographer, artist and set designer.

In Love Cecil, director Lisa Immordino Vreeland brings us a look at Beaton’s life and work – through archival footage, interviews with those who worked closely with Beaton and photographs along with voice over from Beaton’s famed diaries…

I’m watching this one because of Beaton’s extraordinary creativity, his wit and personality; all of which I already got a glimpse of, thanks to an amusing clip  in Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards (2016).

The King is a Eugene Jarecki co-written and directed documentary that explores how a country boy lost his authenticity and became a king, while his country lost her democracy and became an empire. The boy is Elvis Presley and the country the United States of America.

With appearances by the likes of  Alec Baldwin, Lana Del Rey, James Carville, Chuck D and Ashton Kutcher, The King is a musical road trip across America in Elvis Presley’s 1963 Rolls Royce, forty years after his death…

Having not lived during the Elvis era, I’m interested to learn about his influence, good and bad.

As a survivor of trauma, Jason King, a western Sydney security guard and part-time ghost hunter seeks to reconcile his fractured memories and piece together his past.

Ghosthunter is written and directed by Ben Lawrence…

Such a promising trailer. I feel bad for King since this trailer alludes to dark secrets. ‘Be careful what you wish for,’ and all that.

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.

Penguins Release Dates: April 19th, 2019 (US)…
