The King is the story of Graham Kennedy, Australia's first and greatest home grown TV superstar. It traces his rise from working class Balaclava kid, through radio, TV, film, and back to TV again.

  • Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, two-time Sundance Grand Jury winner Eugene Jarecki's new film takes the King's 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across America. From Memphis to New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, the journey traces the rise and fall of Elvis as a metaphor for the country he left behind.

  • For the King’s typical setup belies a charming, tough, tactical game with a bunch of painful ways to die. Taking lessons from the best of tabletop adventure and roleplaying games, For the King looks unique and has simple systems that create a lot of complex and emergent strategies.

  • Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe in The King and I at the London Palladium. Photograph: Matthew Murphy T his 1951 Rodgers and Hammerstein show may be a Broadway classic but it presents a constant difficulty: it seems to endorse the idea of the civilising influence of the west on the barbarian east.

  • Wildly ambitious, thoroughly entertaining and embellished with some snaky moves, Eugene Jarecki’s documentary “The King” is a lot like its nominal subject, Elvis Presley. In part, it tells the familiar story of the poor little boy who became a king.

  • Metacritic Game Reviews, For the King for PC, Weave your own unique tales in a challenging single player or cooperative RPG adventure that spans across the realms. Trek across the per...

  • Review: ‘The King and I,’ Back on Broadway Image The King and I The varied manifestations of love: Ken Watanabe as the King and Kelli O’Hara as Anna in this revival of the musical at the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center.

  • The King is one of the stranger entries in this budding subgenre of Trump-era political docs, a film that attempts to tie the rise and fall of America with the rise and fall of one of its most ...

  • The story switches from King’s graceful head-hopping third-person narrative to a transcript of official statements from key personnel in the prosecution’s case, a formal change that nods to the statements and newspaper extracts King used throughout his debut, Carrie.

  • “The Polka King” adds to this mix one of the most complicated characters when it comes to sympathy and what determines a good or bad person. Even then, Jan is a fascinating question mark. It’s a letdown, then, that the story’s boldest stance about this saga is that it’s a very goofy true story and ripe for a cartoonish take.

  • It is arguably the king of affordable electric cars. For the 2018 model year, the Leaf gets the first full redesign since its 2010 launch. The new model still has an excellent balance of range and price but steps its game up where it counts.
