To my mind, The Imitation Game is the best film of the year: a gripping tale of wartime espionage and code-breaking that also manages to be the character study of an important figure whose contributions have been ignominiously ignored.
The Imitation Game is a well crafted, beautifully shot and acted World War II film that tells the behind the scenes story of how we won the war: a story that remained secret for 50 years.
You get to move up a couple of rows and you get a less crappy picture. And you see that his suit fits him like a glove. Like a very tight glove. This is important information.
Lately It's starting to really cumberbother me how a lot of you are cumberbantering about my name.
I usually find TV award shows as primarily fluff and hype, and they rarely stir deep emotions in me. However, listening to Benedict Cumberbatch's acceptance speech in the Best Actor category at the American Film Awards ceremonies for his portrayal of Alan Turing in the film "The Imitation Game" brought me to tears.
Benedict Cumberbatch is not the first heartthrob whose wedding will evoke hysteria. Elvis Presley and Bollywood's own Rajesh Khanna evoked their share of delirium in far less hyper-connected times.
As a tech historian, I am pleased as punch that Hollywood has finally focused its blockbuster, Oscar-bait attention on British scientists.
A day in London dedicated to a Sherlock Holmes pilgrimage can't begin anywhere but Holmes' flat at 221 B Baker Street. In modern day London, you'll find much of Baker Street has become a shrine to the world's most famous detective.
Get used to hearing the title The Imitation Game because, between the filmmaking of Morten Tyldum and the acting of Benedict Cumberbatch, this is the film they'll be talking about at the end of the year.
In the hands of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has reappeared, but this time as a manipulative intellectual lacking in empathy or warm feelings.
Greater comfort, I think, is to be found in the realization that infinity is as problematic for science as it is for religion. Much as an infinitely perfect God leads to logical clashes with reality, an infinite multiverse bedevils attempts to apply tools such as probabilities to our understanding of the world.
OK, I am the first one to admit it: I am too old to have a celebrity crush. The last time it was cute or acceptable for me to fangirl over a movie star was back in the late 1980s.
Sherlock Holmes duels with himself on television. Two 'modern dress' productions are running simultaneously. Each has been successful critically as well as commercially: the English Sherlock and the American Elementary.
Downton is the most watched show in PBS' history, but it's by no means Britain's only success story on U.S. television. Few cultural partnerships can match ours for closeness or longevity.
