Entertainment round-up 2010

A look back at memorable (and not so memorable) films, music and gigs of the year

Published on January 6th 2011.


Entertainment round-up 2010

Best festival:
In the City. Much improved this year, even with an app to let you know what was on when, In the City was full of new music and generated a beautiful buzz in the Northern Quarter over the three days in October. Click here for a recap.

Best music interview:
When Tamar Smith met Grime King Skepta. This interview further asserts how Confidential has become a melting pot of goings-on in the city. A rapper in a hotel room, scraping the lime scale out of a kettle with a knife? We were there. Click here to read.

Best gig:
Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. This band of brothers are brass at its best. And what better venue to see them play in Manchester than at the home of great live music – Band on the Wall. The gig took place back in April but you catch a slice of the action in the video below. Look out for future gigs of theirs – you don’t want to miss them twice. Click here for the article and the video.

Best launch party:
Emporio Armani, The Avenue. Bear in mind that this is a clothes shop, Emporio Armani pulled out all the stops for their launch on the Avenue, Spinngfields, even going so far as to create their own club. What began as a standard affair nibbling on canapés on the shop floor, quickly turned into a one night extravaganza on a hidden/out of bounds floor of their huge building. By far the biggest and best launch party of 2010. click here to see the Facebook gallery from the night.

Kick-Ass

Best films of 2010:
- The Social Network (12A) click here.
We said: “A melting pot of friends, money and betrayal has made for a great, well-told tale.”

- Kick-Ass (15) click here.
We said: “A hugely enjoyable teenage movie for the Superbad/Spiderman crowd. Violent, brutal, sadistic, funny, controversial. Kids, don’t try this at home.”

Worst films of 2010
- Prince of Persia (12A) click here
We said: “If it’s story, dialogue or fulfilment you’re after, this is 116 minutes you’re never getting back, not for all the sand in Fant-Asia.”

- Sex and the City 2 (15) click here
We said: “This film is utterly, almost disgustingly opulent, flaunting lifestyles only slightly less possible to attain than in the series.”
