In between screenings at the world’s biggest film festival, here’s a bunch of things I look forward to.

So what, apart from the movies, am I looking forward to at Cannes? Maybe a Sylvester Stallone sighting, while he’s promoting Rambo V – Last Blood. You kids will snigger and scream “has been”, but back in the day, back in my day, he was Rocky, he was Rambo, he was Cobra, he was huge. So some star-spotting is a big attraction, which is why bleachers are put up outside the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, the main theatre that has the red carpet premieres, making the already narrow road even narrower. People come there early and sit and wait. And wait. And wait. I want to think I’m above this, but a couple of times I have found myself frozen at the spot, gawking at the LCD screens showing who’s getting out from this car and who’s posing for the photographers there. How do you know when a star has landed? It’s simple. Just wait for the crowd in the bleachers to roar.
