Life and Style Rhodri Marsden: the embodiment of irresistible masculinity, obviously

While I was on holiday in Sydney last September, I got into a taxi with a dashboard festooned with five mobile devices, hanging off a variety of mounts, and all presumably providing critical information to the driver.

Film review: Riddick (15)

Thirteen years on from the originating movie Pitch Black, Vin Diesel returns as the resourceful, muscle-clad, gravel-voiced ex-con Riddick. And he's still sporting those Day-Glo contact lenses and swimming goggles that allow him to see in the dark. This third instalment (after The Chronicles of Riddick) finds him on a lonely planet, where he's been left for dead by a duplicitous commander of his former empire. Here be monsters, notably a swarm of pincered creatures nicked from – where else? – Alien, and, what's more, a bounty hunter (Jordi Mollà) determined to "bring back Riddick's head in a box". Good luck with that!

Film review: Upstream Colour (12A)

The film that messes with your head isn't necessarily an unpleasant experience – for sure, much of Shane Carruth's second feature, following his enigmatic debut Primer (2004), is actually quite beautiful, and with some concentration you may even make a little sense of it.

$125 million Material Girl: Madonna tops Forbes' top-earning celebrity list 2013

She may be a Material Girl but it seems Madonna, 55, is rather shrewd when it comes to hoarding (as opposed to spending) money. The pop star is the world's top-earning celebrity according to Forbes, raking in an estimated $125 million (£80 million) in the past year, mainly from her $305 million-grossing MDNA tour.
