(FLASHBACK) : The 'Creation' - 10 Anniversary in REDCARPETMONOCHROME

September 13th, 2019.

Please don’t tell me I’m the only person on the planet who still has this Charles Darwin biopic on DVD. It was okay. The premiere itself was a strange, weekend, Curzon Mayfair event… and the first time I ever photographed the later-to-be-a-much-bigger star Benedict Cumberbatch.

Viewed today, the actors of this movie run an interesting gamut - Paul Bettany would become Vision in Avengers (spoilers if you’re only up to phase 1), Anna Popplewell is probably still best known for being in one (two?) of those Narnia films, Sir Derek Jacobi must surely be a Lord or Baron or something now, and director Jon Amiel is sadly still best known on imdb for having directed Copycat (1995) The Core (2003), and Entrapment (1999). Still… worth revisiting, if only merely photographically

(FLASHBACK) : 'The Ugly Truth' - 10th Anniversary in RedCarpetMonochrome

August 4th, 2009/2019.

Of all the movies to celebrate, commemorate, or even decide to consciously recall, 2009’s “The Ugly Truth” isn’t exactly a frontrunner. However, I did find myself with a bit of spare time, and the ‘We Hate Movies’ podcast had semi-recently done a lengthy and funny episode on it…. so why not?

Here’s how it was at the time:

So…that was that. Ten years ago… and possibly forgotten by most, but it happened. (Don’t tell me it didn’t happen - I was there - I KNOW it happened!). A bit quiet on the 10th Anniversary front from here on in… seems I took a bit of a hiatus from this crazy hobby for a while after this one.
