Film Intel's Final Word - Netflix UK, Burton Banality, Novak A Nutter?

Netflix UK Launches With Streaming Only And The Inability To Look At Their Selection.

Story: The Guardian

Offering a streaming-only service for £5.99 a month with a one-month free trial is a great idea to try and capture some of the 'this streaming thing, is it any good?' crowd but you know what would have made it better? If the 'Browse Selection' tab had have actually displayed some results. It's either broken or restricted to users only which, although a viable marketing tactic, is a bit of a nuisance to those who just want a sneak peak.

Burton For Pinocchio, Banality And Boredom.

Story: Empire

This story did the rounds prior to this week but the sheer un-impressiveness of Tim Burton taking on a seemingly whimsical fairy tale (might it have an increased 'dark' edge, do we think?) is too overwhelming to ignore. This, people, is what you get for going to see Alice in your droves.

Kim Novak Cries 'Rape', Gets Attention She Was Seeking.

Story: HitFix and The Incredible Suit

My gut reaction to these sort of things is normally to follow the 'ignore the trolls' line but, fair enough, some of the articles covering Novak's hyperbole, ill-advised word selection and general slimy self-promotion have been excellent, particularly the pair linked to above.
