 Killer Charles Manson alive as reports swirl of ill health
Killer Charles Manson alive as reports swirl of ill health

For nearly 50 years Charles Manson has been the living personification of evil, a demonic presence captured in scores of photos, each of them marked by his piercing dark eyes and the crude Nazi swastika he carved into his forehead.

That personification returned to the public consciousness again this week, complete with a prison mug shot of a now-elderly but still evil-looking Manson, after a report by TMZ.com that the killer of glamoro...

'Harry Potter' fans are freaking out about 'Fantastic Beasts' sequel title

"Harry Potter" fans already know that "Fantastic Beasts" is a spin-off of sorts to the famed wizarding film series.

In fact, Harry Potter studied a book written by Newt Scamander called "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" while he was in class at Hogwarts. The first movie follows Scamander and the magical creatures he collected and documented.

In this film, the Hogwarts headmaster, portrayed by Jude Law, tries to track d...

Glengarry Glen Ross review: Short, sharp and savagely entertaining

This scorching revival is a timely reminder of Mamet’s tightly-wound talent.

Like a street punk version of Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman, it eviscerates the American dream with merciless skill.

The salesmen in a real estate company are under pressure to follow leads and make sales. Business is declining and the atmosphere thrums with testosterone and panic.

Justice League review: Action-packed but lacks goofy fun like Thor: Ragnarok
Justice League review: Action-packed but lacks goofy fun like Thor: Ragnarok

Many comic book fans were underwhelmed by the long and ponderous Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

They might prefer Justice League, a less pretentious tale that boils the superhero genre down to its essentials of a dastardly baddie intent on galactic domination and a rum bunch of good folk trying to stop him.

The death of Superman has opened the floodgates to crime.

The greatest threat comes from ancient warrior Steppenwol...

It is the story of ageing TV news anchorman Howard Beale (Bryan Cranston) who announces his intention to commit suicide live on TV in his next and final broadcast. 

Saved from self-destruction by the delighted anticipation of viewers and a spike in the ratings, he is re-employed by venal TV executive Diana Christensen (Michelle Dockery) who cashes in on Beale’s breakdown and lets him rip through his mantra: “I’m ma...

WTF is book-ended by two heartfelt letters to Peston’s late father in which he bemoans the current state of politics in the UK and the USA.

With an admirable level of honesty, Peston explores the reasons why he didn’t see Brexit coming: “It turns out I have not really been living in the United Kingdom,” he says, “but in a privileged metropolitan bubble or ghetto.”

Minette Walters: My best six books: The Power and the Glory and more

This was given to me by my godmother. I was reading Ladybird books and Enid Blyton but these are dark, exciting stories. I was terrified.

By the time my mother told me to go to sleep, I had the sheets over my ears. But I’d still be reading.

They were my introduction to the idea that life wasn’t just nice. 

Another children’s story, though I still read it now. It’s about incredible loneliness.

Luke is heard asking Rey, “You’ve seen this place?”, to which she replies: “Only in dreams.”

The Jedi Master then says what will probably be his first line in the movie: “Who are you?”
