THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT Comp!

Posted on 30 June 2016 by Chris Ford

THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT is based on the notorious 1971 psychological study by Stanford University professor Dr Philip Zimbardo, who consulted closely on the making of the film. Billy Crudup (Spotlight, Watchmen) stars as the professor who cast 24 student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behaviour in the prison system. The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few short days.

WIN A LUXURY HAMPER PACKED FULL OF KRONENBOURG 1664 GOODIES!

Posted on 20 October 2014 by Chris Ford

This month, Kronenbourg 1664 is celebrating the 350th Anniversary of its founding brewery and to help celebrate we have a premium hamper package containing a selection of tasty French delicacies and of course some beer to give away to one lucky reader.
Alex James And Kronenbourg Celebrate 350th Anniversary In Traditional Alsace Village
The story began in 1664, when Jérôme Hatt set up a brewery a few steps away from the cathedral in central Strasbourg, capital of the Alsace region of France. By 1850 the brewery was relocated to a village just outside the city, the village of Cronenbourg. This was the beginning of the brewery’s journey to great worldwide status. And a lot of it is down to Alsace – the place where Kronenbourg’s famous Strisselspalt hops are grown – which gets the most summer sun and some of the lowest levels of rainfall in continental Europe.
Alex James And Kronenbourg Celebrate 350th Anniversary In Traditional Alsace Village

The Top 10 Tube faux pas & Win Russell Kane Tickets!

Posted on 25 September 2014 by Chris Ford

Those humorous little moments on the Tube that only us reserved Brits would worry about have been put under the microscope in a new survey – with the help ofcomedian Russell Kane.
rk13_russell_kane
Something as seemingly innocent as ‘making accidental eye contact’ with a fellow passenger has been judged by the public as perhaps the most dreaded faux pas of all, and far worse even than something physical like falling asleep on someone’s shoulder!
The findings are from a poll by filtered water experts BRITA, who are mounting a public information campaign called Travel Smart, reminding passengers to stay hydrated on the Tube this summer.
BRITA’s research of 2,000 regular Tube users, carried out by OnePoll, found that more than two thirds of passengers commit the very real ‘faux pas’ of failing to carry a hydrating drink in hotter weather, despite the regular announcements made on the Underground urging them to do so.

In order to delve further into the other ‘faux pas’ of Tube travel, BRITA enlisted the aid of comic and TV star Russell Kane, who is well-known for incorporating observations on Tube travel into his act – embodied in his smash-hit Smallness show.
Russell said, “The Underground is a metal ‘Test Tube’ filled with the essence of British Reserve. We are trapped for at least the duration of a ‘stop’ in the close scrutiny of our fellow passengers – so any small faux pas we make has the potential to be magnified into a dreadful embarrassment.”
“After 60 long seconds pressed up against a total stranger, even such an innocuous thing as making accidental eye contact can feel like a proposal of marriage!”
The results of the poll explain the practiced ‘Underground Stare’ into the middle distance perfected by regular Tube users, and unwanted looks also figure in the second most practiced faux pas admitted by passengers: the prolific and dreaded ‘getting caught reading someone’s newspaper over their shoulder’!
Number three demands a bit of space! It’s when you make the dramatic leap through the doors in a desperate bid to make the train – and then have to stand or sit feeling foolish for a minute before the doors finally close. In those circumstances, the faux pas-averse really do ‘mind’ the doors!

Russelkanephone

The Top 10 Tube faux pas
1. Making awkward eye contact
2. Getting caught reading a newspaper or a mobile phone over someone’s shoulder
3. Making a dramatic leap through the doors – only to find they weren’t
about to close
4. Not hanging on and falling over when the train moves
5. Waving at someone they thought they knew, but didn’t!
6. Spilling a drink over themselves or the person next to them
7. Falling asleep on a stranger’s shoulder
8. Passing wind
9. Eating smelly food
10. Accidently singing with their headphones on

Russell Kane will be delivering extracts from his Smallness tour and BRITA’s Travel Smart campaign at a private gig. The gig will be held on Monday, 29th September at the 100 Club, London

We have the fantastic prize of two tickets including a meet and greet with Russell after the show!

Top Ten Arnold Schwarzenegger Films

Posted on 18 September 2014 by Chris Ford

Arnold Schwarzenegger Actor, body builder and errm Mayor the man seems to be able to do anything he sets his mind to, here in honour of the release of his latest film Sabotage on DVD and Blu-Ray I list my top ten Arnie movies

Conan the Barbarian (1982)
Having previously been a bodybuilder (an occupation for which he drew attention in the 1977 documentary Pumping Iron), Austrian actor Arnold Schwarzenegger always yearned to move into the acting industry. Following his seventies screen debut (Hercules in New York), bit parts followed in the lead up to his starring role in smash-hit Conan the Barbarian, a swords ‘n’ sandals epic in which he played a young barbarian avenging the death of his parents at the hand of a cult. Arnie returned for sequel Conan the Destroyer in 1984.

The Terminator (1984)
With a thirst for action films in the 80s, Schwarzenegger’s profile was further raised by a whole array of the rollicking rides, including Raw Deal (1986), Red Heat and the action-comedy Twins (both 1988). However, none of these roles would have been offered to him had he not taken what many deem to be his signature role: The Terminator. In James Cameron’s sci-fi classic, Arnie played a cyborg assassin sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor in order to prevent the birth of an oncoming human saviour. Uttering the line ‘I’ll be back’ worked quite well for Schwarzenegger too.

Commando (1985)
A critical and commercial success, in Commando, Schwarzenegger plays a retired elite Black Ops Commando who launches a one-man war against a group of criminals who abduct his daughter in order to get him to get an exiled dictator back into power. Writer Jeph Loeb (producer of television sensation LOST) revealed that first in line for the role was Kiss front man Gene Simmons, but Arnie embraces the role by playing Colonel Matrix with a fervour unlike any other.

Predator (1987)
John McTiernan’s beloved sci-fi action horror follows an elite special forces team, led by Arnie’s Dutch, on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory in Central America. They soon become aware that they are being hunted by a technologically advanced extra-terrestrial who dispatches them one by one (naturally). Despite receiving negative press at its time of release, Predator has endured as something of a cult; two sequels and two crossover films have since been produced, with Arnie involved in none of them. A reboot at the hands of Iron Man 3 director Shane Black has just been greenlit.

Total Recall (1990)
Apparently one of the most expensive films made at the time of release, Total Recall is a futuristic sci-fi which many Arnie fans hold dear to their hearts; when Douglas Quaid goes on a virtual vacation to Mars, an unexpectedly harrowing series of events forces him to go to the planet for real – only is it real? Famed for his many one-liners across his back catalogue, this mind-bender features the brilliantly-delivered line of dialogue: ‘Consider dat a divorce’ as he shoots his double-crossing wife (played by Sharon Stone).

Kindergarten Cop (1990)
Ivan Reitman’s comedy thriller stars Schwarzenegger as John Kimble, a touch police detective who must go undercover as a kindergarten teacher to catch a drug dealer. Beating out the likes of Bill Murray, Patrick Swayze and his Twins co-star Danny DeVito to the role, the film has endured as a slice of fun action to watch with all the family – something Arnie achieved with Last Action Hero (1993), Junior (1994) and Christmas staple Jingle All the Way (1996).

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
James Cameron’s sci-fi sequel follows Sarah Connor and her son John hunted by a more advanced and ever-deadlier terminator – this time Robert Patrick’s memorable villain T-1000. In a contrast to the previous film, Schwarzenegger here plays a good incarnation of the Terminator, this time sent to protect the Connors – so essentially playing a machine with a heart, and in the process showcasing his range of acting abilities.


True Lies (1994)

An extended remake of French film La Totale!, True Lies SAW Arnie re-team with his Terminator director James Cameron in an action which sees his lead character Harry Tasker leading a double life performing covert missions for the US government under a counter-terrorism task force unbeknownst to his wife Jamie Lee Curtis and daughter Dana. This was the first film with a production budget of over £100m.


The 6th Day (2000)

This underrated Arnie action film follows family man Adam Gibson who is cloned without his knowledge or consent. Set in a futuristic world (the year 2015, would you believe…), Roger Spottiswoode’s film gives Schwarzenegger plenty of well-choreographed scenes to chew in, and zippy one-liners to throw the audience’s way.


Sabotage(2014)

Sabotage marks not only Arnold Schwarzenegger’s long-awaited return to his action roots- for director David Ayer’s action thriller, Schwarzenegger allows Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Terrence Howard and Josh Holloway to join him as they go after a mysterious assassin who is trying to get rid of them one by one. With an awesome team like that, the movie easily keeps action lovers excited and on the edge of their seats.

Sabotage is out now on Blu-ray and DVD by Lionsgate Home Entertainment you can get yours from Amazon now.

I have a copy to give away, if you want to win it just email me at enterthecomp@gmail.com and tell me which state in the USA Arnie was mayor of until recently?

A winner will be drawn next Friday 26th Sept at random.
