New Releases Out This Week: January 24th

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

Hitting your DVD shelves this week is the action/adventure comedy Red. This gem stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman just to name a few. The film follows Frank, a a former black-ops CIA agent who lives a quiet life at home until one day, a hit squad shows up to kill him. With his identity now compromised, Frank reassembles his old team to still prove they have a few tricks up their sleeve.

Reviewers weren’t too hard on this flick but many said that ever since Die Hard, Bruce Willis only plays one character. Many ratings came back as 3 out of 5 stars or B grade. However, many loved the ensemble of the cast and what they brought to the story.

The DVD packs some special features like extended and deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes looks and interviews with the cast and crew. If you like the simple action/comedy with an all-star ensemble cast then I recommend you check this out. It is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray Special Edition.

We are a few weeks away from Super Bowl XLV (45) in Texas, and Division Championship games played this past Sunday decided which teams will be competing for the ultimate Football trophy on February 6, 2011.

The NFC (West) Championship saw the Chicago Bears host the Green Bear Packers in one of the coldest play off games this season, with one of the most legendary rivalries in history. The sod at Soldier Field in Chicago was rumored to have a huge effect on the Packers, being one of the muddiest (okay, worst) outdoor turfs, placing the Bears with the at-home advantage. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case for the dismal Chicago Bears who failed to show up for this important match up. The first half saw the Green Bay Packers leading the Bears 14-0, stifling the noise of the crowd.

Aaron Carter Checks In Rehab

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

….And that’s what drugs do to you folks. While his older brother Nick Carter has been preparing for the NKOTBSB Tour, Aaron Carter has left the former “House of Carters” and checked into rehab, according E! News. The decision to go to rehab was apparently his own choice, and not a court mandated decision of any sort. Better than joining “Celebrity Rehab” again. Carter’s manager, Johnny Wright, elaborated on this, telling E! the following:

“Several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body. Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with. Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he’s about to take. He asks that everyone keep him in their prayers and that they respect his privacy at this time.”

Documentary: Steam of Life

In: Dan, Movies

Holy culture shock! Over the last three nights I have taken in three different cultural shows and performances, starting with a Hollywood Blockbuster film, followed my a Welsh play in a 150-person live theatre, and last, a documentary film from Finland in a high school theatre. What an adventure these last few days have been on my senses and mindset, specifically referring to the show that just wrapped up, Steam of Life. The film, by Joonas Berghall and Mika Hotakainen, is like nothing else I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching.

As mentioned, the film is a Finnish documentary following the lives of several men from Finland and their abilities to deal with some of life’s hardest tribulations, and their resorting to the cultural phenomena of saunas as a peace of solitude and cleansing. Throughout the film the audience is continually shown that the saunas are traditionally used for actual bathing, including a 51-year marriage between a man and a women, who have washed each other daily over the course of their relationship. And this was the opening sequence of the film!

Zeb Atlas Has A Love Hangover

In: Music, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

I love when celebrities do vanity projects like releasing singles. Well, porn star (and according to the video description… gay icon?) Zeb Atlas is the latest to jump on the train. Back in 2009, Zeb starred in Pearly Gates’ music video for her single Stop For Love in a retro themed video which matches her disco style music (which is actually highly infectious). The song actually sounds like a TV theme song from the late 80’s.

After making the connection with Night Dance Records, Zeb decided it was time to release a disco track of his own. Low and behold, his first single titled Love Hangover, a tongue-in-cheek version of Diana Ross’ hit has hit YouTube and let me tell you, the video is amazingly awful. The song starts off strong with a great disco back beat but then slows down into a 70’s Barry White/porn track.

What makes the video peak in awkwardness is when Zeb is “dancing” with two back up dancers behind him. He looks like that beefy guy at the club with no rhythm and you can’t help but love it because its so bad, its cute. I love the Pearly Gates hook on the track but I don’t think I’ll be adding this song to my iPod anytime soon.

Check out the video after the jump.

I never thought I would be so into the lives of The Kardashians, but low and behold, Tyrell and I are doing a pretty great job at keeping up with them on E! I guess I can’t be that surprised considering I used to watch “The Hills”, but that’s another story.

Tonight, Kourtney & Kim take their glamor drama to the Big Apple as the scope out the perfect location for their next Dash store. In “Keeping Up With The Kardashians“, it was a toss up between opening a second location in Miami or NYC first. The girls decided upon Miami first, creating the spinoff, “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami“. Now, “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” in this third spinoff and third Dash store location. Three Kardashian shows?! Yup, and there’s one more on the way that will follow Khloe and Lamar as a newlywed couple.
