Pam and Tommy is a biographical mini-series starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan. It is based on the messy short-lived marriage between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Pamela Anderson was the biggest television star back in the 90s but a Video put her in a scandal. This Canadian bombshell got her fame from the Hit tv show, Baywatch. Tommy Lee was the drummer of the band Motley Crue. The transformation of James and Stand as Pam and Tommy is uncanny. I don’t see any traces of Cinderella and Winter Soldier anymore. Both actors transformed into the younger versions of the people they portray. Kudos to the make-up and styling department of this Hulu original.
Dark Star Pictures will soon be releasing the Australian biopic Acute Misfortune in the US. Both theatrical and digital releases are planned, though the “theatrical” releases will be virtual.
I’m the kind of person who likes comedy, fantasy, animation, puppetry, and of course, explosions. So in general, biographies don’t excite me. But I absolutely could not pass up Jim Henson: The Biography, by Brian Jay Jones. I grew up on Jim Henson’s creations. Though I was only two years old when he died, my entire childhood was filled with the Muppets. From Sesame Street and Muppet Babies to The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, I was immersed in puppets. Even now that I’m an adult, I still love the Muppets. So of course, the book was worth the time.
