Django Is the Buzz


In Quentin Tarantino’s new western Django Unchained, Jamie Foxx plays an ex-slave determined to free his wife from the the plantation of ruthless slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

For Foxx, the movie presented a number of firsts, including a wild ride on horseback, a vengeful slave and an onset accident that left DiCaprio with a blood-drenched hand.

Calvin Candie manages a 60-square-mile spread called Candie Land, a sugar plantation populated by hundreds of slaves, including Django’s wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington).

When King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and Django ride in with their hidden agenda, Candie, a man who is not used to being contradicted, loses patience with the pair, smashing a shot glass on the table before him.

Word on set was that during rehearsals, DiCaprio delivered a tour de force performance. Subsequently, staffers were stopping by the set to watch the scene as it was being filmed.

One Billion Views, Gangnam Style!

South Korea is having a moment. Much-mimicked Gangnam Style, by PSY, has been viewed on YouTube more than 900 million times and is Google's most searched-for pop song for 2012. British Airways opened its new route to Seoul earlier this month.

You can come to South Korea to witness the attractive spring blossom, but I am here in winter and in the capital, Seoul, it is very chilly indeed.

The city, only 38 miles from the heavily guarded border with North Korea along the country's 38th parallel, is a thriving business hub, home to the headquarters of Samsung, Hyundai and LG among many others.

The country is one of the top three in the world for education. When I ask an expat what characterises a South Korean, he says hard work. That much is evident. With shops open for trade from 6pm to 6pm, I don't know when people fit in sleep.

But, as Gangnam Style demonstrates, this dedicated lot like to have a laugh.

Lindsey Lohan Facing Jail Time

The Thinkering


The actress has been in and out of rehab and jail since 2007 after she was arrested for drunk-driving and cocaine possession.

Another hearing over the driving charges is due next month.

The Liz & Dick actress is accused of reckless driving and lying to police after claiming she was not behind the wheel of a car that smashed into a truck in Santa Monica, California, in June.

At the court hearing on Wednesday (12 December), Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey said she would also set a date for another hearing questioning whether or not Lohan violated her probation and should be sent back to jail.

Lohan's attorney Shawn Holley did not enter a plea on the actress's behalf, but argued she had not violated the terms of her probation.

The Hollywood actress was also arrested in New York on an assault charge last month.
