Miley Cyrus is still celebrating her hotness? Talk about a hot flash two decades too soon. Jaden Smith will not be emancipated? The kid is worth twenty million bucks and will be one of the greatest actors ever. I think he’ll be alright. Ben Affleck is now designing shoes. Man, dreams really do come true. Captain (steroids) America (steroids) has bulging (steroids) biceps. Kanye West’s Lamborghini has taken a beating. Now if only the same thing would happen to Kanye himself…There has been so much talk about Angelina Jolie’s mastectomy that people are ignoring her hysterectomy too. She deserves all of our praise and approbation. Miss USA wants to marry Prince Harry. Get in line sister! Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby left everyone at Cannes feeling underwhelmed. It almost reminds me of every other movie Luhrmann has made: it sucks.
Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to 3 months in prison. Can somebody say drop the soap? Oh? We just did? Slip. Lindsay Lohan has called rehab "pointless". Hmmm, pointless, not unlike Lohan herself. Speaking of rehab, even Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller is there. Who's next Emilio Estevez? Mama June and Sugar Bear have exchanged vows? It sounds like a lesbian sex cult. Here's some crappy news: Elton John's husband copped a feel of Doodie Howser's ass.Amanda Bynes underwent plastic surgery to fix her face. Too bad some things are too broke to fix. Patrick Schwarzenegger has been thrown out of a night club. Next thing you know he'll be bangin' the cleaning woman. Hey like father like son!
Ireland Baldwin fires back at critics. She must be from Ireland because Owen Wilson's (Hall Pass) p*nis is Dublin! Chord Overstreet has tweeted from bed. Well, Violin Underpass has sent out an Instagram so what's the big deal? Pink has eloquently proclaimed she is a "reformed slut". Good grief, Pink is reformed? Are Harry Styles and Kimberly Stewart dating? No not Patrick Stewart that's Captain Picard. No not Joey Styles that's WWE. Rumer has it, pun intended that Rumer and Demi Moore have reconnected over yoga. Their egos are so flexible. Oh no, no baby gifts for Kim K and Kanye West? What will the billionaires do without baby gifts? Will Kim Kardashian at least have a baby shower? If not she can always take a bath. Catherine Zeta-Jones has been hospitalized because of the severity of her bipolar disorder. No wonder she has two last names, we are all really two people anyway right? Jason Collins has come out, and then he told the world he's gay. I am so happy (not gay) for him.
US Weekly asks "Is sidebutt the new sideboob?" And we responded "that's just the tits isn't it?" Gwyneth Paltrow no longer wears underwear when debut(t)ing a dress. I hope she never wears the same outfit again! Who is a better American Idol judge, Mariah Carey or Jennifer Lopez? Simon Cowell, 'nuff said. Ellen has given a wedding gift to Justin and Jessica. Did she give away her Portia? Poppy Montgomery has named her daughter Seed. Just kidding. Why do so many people hate Gwyneth Paltrow? Surely it's not because of her amazing acting? Drugs have been found on Justin Bieber's bus. Bieber thought he was a flower. Turns out he is just a big weed! Want to see Melissa Gilbert's wedding dress? Then go to her wedding. Mark Wahlberg will reunite with the funky bunch. Surprisingly, we have no comment.
Ben Affleck will live on $1.50 a day...for one day. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are finally divorced. This is such sad news. Reese Witherspoon faced arrest after a tirade against the police officers that arrested her drunk husband Jim Toth (short for Tooth?). Gosh, she is such a sweetheart. Hey pig F* you!!! Awe. Kate Middleton has a baby bump. Does she have a baby too? Justin Bieber Tweeted and the deleted a photo with Selena Gomez. Amanda Bynes loves her fans...What fans? They must be of the ceiling variety. I love how you twirl. Jay-Z and Kanye heart one another. Good thing Kanye has a fall back guy now that KK is the size of a barnyard. Rookie news anchor A.J. Clemente was fired after uttering his first words ever in front of the camera: "F'ing Sh**. I am used to being from the East Coast". Good lord, what if he were from the West Coast? He melted down worse than a polar ice cap!
Why would JWOWW want to adopt when she already has two adorable puppies? Kevin Hart has been arrested on suspicion of DUI. Now, there's nothing funny about that. Justin Bieber wants Anne Frank to be his biggest fan? Ummm dude, I know that you can barely read but leave the memory of that poor girl alone. Tiger and Lindsay have become serious. She even wore the golfer's patented red and black. What she wore on top is anyone's guess! Carmelo Anthony talks about his winning style. It all starts with a good breakfast and reportedly his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios! RPattz and Kristen Stewart are holding hands again. Isn't it the sweetest when a cuckolded guy goes back with his gardening tool? Will the Lakers part ways with the Black Mamba in favor of D12? Let's ask Achilles. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have split. The Boston Marathon is being called the Boston Massacre. Our hearts go out to the families of those slain in the cowardly terror attack that occurred earlier today. Kris Humphries will never legally see Kim Kardashian's e-mails. Dude you already saw everything else aren't you grossed out enough as it is? Finally, Lindsay Lohan enjoyed some Coke at Coachella. Not that kind of Coke.
OMG Tom Cruise said that life is tragicomic. That must be why I laugh so hard when I cry. Sniff, hahahahah. Donald Trump was booed so loudly at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony that his wig, I mean hair almost fell off. If you want to see Justin Bieber's new hairdo I might suggest that you build a time machine and travel back to whenever the heck Austin Powers is from. Taylor Swift suggested that she may be single forever. Taylor, just because you have only one listener doesn't make you single girl. Rihanna may break up (again) with Chris Brown. I cannot imagine (domestic violence) what ever kept them apart (a court order). Katherine Heigl is really hot in her bathing suit; then again that might be because she is in the sun. Rick Ross may be "boss" but he is in a way promoting date rape in his music. I guess even the boss can get fired. Halle Berry has a baby bump that goes so well with her crow's feet. What's this? Lindsay Lohan went out for sushi instead of to her court appointment? Something smells fishy about this.Read more...
Steven Soderbergh’s movie Side Effects has been released on DVD this past Tuesday. In Side Effects on DVD, Soderbergh tells the two tales and with widely varying results. Story number one is about a psychiatrist (Jude Law as Dr. Jonathan Banks) that prescribes medication to patients suffering from depression as well as from suicidal tendencies. His most recently admitted patient (Rooney Mara as Emily Taylor) has murdered (by way of stabbing) her husband (Channing Tatum) seemingly in cold blood. Fresh off of a four year stint in the big house, her husband had been poised to start fresh. The noblest of intentions however are feeble in comparison to ruthless murder.
Director JJ Abrams has outdone himself. Star Trek: Into Darkness wields a cast that is second to none. It is a superb action/adventure thriller. Star Trek totaled a whopping 71 million dollars at the Box Office during its opening non-holiday weekend debut. Yet, despite all of these accolades, Star Trek fans are seething over what they have just witnessed. Abrams has modernized and monetized their favorite franchise. What could possibly disturb Trekky purists about that? What indeed.
The movie Pawn starring Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker and the magnificent Michael Chiklis is not one's humdrum organized crime dramatic thriller. There are so many layers waiting to be unraveled by director David A. Armstrong that one wonders if he employed the old industrial Spinning Jenny to manufacture the story in the first place. Crucial elements of the plot are revealed in backward, forward, horizontal, vertical and in diagonal order. Although this mish-mashing of the order will not deter viewers from coming to a full understanding of whodunit and why, it still complicates that which should not be mysterious. This categorically un-categorical movie (Pawn) is saved only by a spirited performance from Michael Chiklis as the fiery villain.
I Give It a Year is a British movie that is abundant in laughs and yet thoroughly bewildering in its outcome. Writer/director Dan Mazer seems to drag audiences in one direction only to sweep the rug out from under their collective feet. This is not a criticism folks, it is a testament to Mazer's willingness to shake things up for the sake of offering a truly fresh and original story. The movie I Give It a Year is thoroughly satisfying and it is not a little bit hysterical!
The movie Iron Man 3 3D: Extremis is a new age classic. The actors (Pearce, Favreau, Paltrow, Cheadle and Robert Downey, Jr.) have never looked better. If there are any loopholes in the screenplay please do not blame Drew Pearce or Shane Black. The script for the movie is derivative of the various comics and graphic novels similarly titled. Iron Man the character does not live in a vacuum. His likeness is virtually everywhere and his popularity is multiplying exponentially. The movie Iron Man 3 3D: Extremis is, dare I utter the words, the best Iron Man movie yet.
Released on May 7 of this week, the movie Jack Reacher DVD is nothing short of phenomenal. Given the paramount (pun intended) success of his two most recent films, and his history of being one of the all-time greats, the public needs to forget about Tom Cruise's perceived sins and embrace his talent for what it is. Choosing to portray Jack Reacher, a rogue ex-military do-gooder/guerilla problem solver, proved to be an adept decision for the much maligned star. Based on the series of novels written by Lee Child, the movie Jack Reacher on DVD is part detective story and part action thriller. At times (thanks to Warner Herzog) the movie even borderlines on being a horror flick. What is absolute is that buying or renting Jack Reacher on iTunes or on DVD or on Blu-ray or on Amazon, or selecting it on Netflix will make your weekend extra satisfying.
Disney Pixar just sent us a link to their brand new Monster's University Mother's Day Video!!! Click "Read More" for autoplay of this trailer from Disney.
Double feature at the cineplex folks! Our feature films are The Oranges starring Oliver Platt (from "The Big C") and megastar Hugh Laurie (a.k.a. Dr. Gregory House). Our second movie of the evening is The Guilt Trip starring Seth Rogen and a rejuvenated Barbara Streisand. Both The Guilt Trip and The Oranges are fascinating movies and they are strange bedfellows to be sure. These two pictures have nothing in common other than their self-aggrandizing spectacular movie reviewer!
Based on the cult novel by Max Smart, and directed by Aram Rappaport, the movie Syrup is as zany as the comedy of Chris Farley and as outrageous as the cringing productions by the Farrelly Brothers. Starring Johnny Depp's lover, actress Amber Heard, Syrup is the type of movie that will leave viewers scratching their heads. Did they just consume a movie about slick marketing and learn about how the unsuspecting human mind is manipulated; or have audiences just watched something shallow and begrudgingly clownish? The answer is far more nebulous than committing to a simple yes or no reply. At the very least, and if for no other reason, Syrup is an important movie for Amber Heard and that is reason enough for critics to examine it punctiliously.
21 and Over is one of the all-time funniest college movies. Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and starring Miles Teller, Skylar Austin, Justin Chin and Sarah Wright, 21 and Over is just what the doctor ordered. Sure, this particular pseudo-physician might just be Dr. Pepper, but his advice is still both rational and expert. On a more serious note, this particular comedy movie is about three high school best friends that have decided (knowingly and unknowingly) to reunite on Jeff Chang's (Chou) 21st birthday. The hilarity that ensues is legendary.
The Details with Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks is purportedly a comedy. No such categorization could be further from the truth. The Details, which is written and directed by Jacob Aaron Estes, provides an intimate look into a troubled time in the lives of two married people and their immediate friends and neighbors. Banks (portraying Mrs. Lang) and Maguire (portraying Dr. Lang) make for a seasoned team of everyday sociopaths. She is an aloof, in-the-closet infidelitous scoundrel, and he is a mild-mannered married man susceptible to the onslaught of would-be lovers. Their urges and marital ineptitude are exposed by a series of perfectly ordinary and natural gardening events. A string of lawn attacks by raccoons hungering for worms puts into motion a sequence of improbable and fatal events from which the happy couple might never recover.
