Frances Willington's Comments
Very sorry indeed to hear of Bob Hoskins diagnosis. Good Luck to him in his fight against Parkinson's disease. he is far too young at 69 for us to lose him. Thank you Bob for all the great performances.
Really good choices.
Big Mistake on Universal's part.
ll very well, but it appears the only HEAD TO ROLL was his own. Bummer. You have to pick your moments and he picked wrong time, wrong place, to get into a fight with French Film critics

Comment on: Farmer who took on Mugabe dies
I used to travel a great deal in africa, and i loved Zim, I never met Mr Campbell, but his courage and bravery telling his story and outlining the injustices committed by Robert Mugabe did indeed, make for a wonderful documentary. I send my deepest condolences to his family. thank you for punishing this moving obituary S.I. Frances Willington
Comment on: The King's Speech pulled from Rotterdam
Very bad no-planning all round.
Do i rally want to go to the movies and have a Velociraptor or a T Rex jump out of the screen with it's big fangs dripping gore and more gore.... NO i do not I want to go to the movies and see high calibre acting and directing as in THE KINGS SPEECH, THE READER, etc. fun can be good, i loved ALICE 3D, but Tim Burton is a whimsical genius. PIRANA 3D was fun also but dinosuars...NO...
Comment on: Rome opens with star power and local protests
Only in Italy do they mix Prime Ministers, Church scandals, belly dancers of doubtful age, politics, movies and all that goes with them and still get front page headlines. Love it. the land of Opera in truth.
