Movie Review: Hall Pass

In: Movies, Patrick

A couple nights ago, I caught the pre-screen of the movie Hall Pass, a comedy starring SNL’s Jason Sudeikis as well as Owen Wilson, who you know from tons of other comedies, but mostly from his unique nose. I had no expectations going into this film, but I will tell you this…I was beyond pleasantly surprised.

Best friends Rick and Fred (Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) have been married to their wives for several years now (Jenna Fisher and Christina Applegate). When the women start getting frustrated by their men always checking out other girls and always wanting to have sex, they decide to grant their men a one week Hall Pass, as recommended by their psychologist friend, played by Joy Behar from The View. What does that entail? The “Hall Pass” is a week off of marriage to do whatever they want…no questions asked. Of course it seems too good to be true at first, but then the guys realize it’s for real and they’re eager to take advantage of the opportunity. Of course, being “single” isn’t how they remember it to be, as they have changed and so has the scene.

Anyone else think there’s not a hell of a lot of good music coming out lately? But I’m hopeful. Spring has almost sprung (as soon as the snow melts?), and when the sun comes out, so do sunny tunes. This is just a brief pause in the history of great 2011 music. I’m excited for summer anthems, I’m achin’ to become obsessed with a brand new artist, I’m gagging for Gaga’s new album, and until all that magically comes true, here’s a few tunes to get you through the in between time.

Someone Like You (Live Acoustic) – Adele

DID EVERYONE SEE THIS PERFORMANCE AT THE BRIT AWARDS??! *gasp*. Adele is insane. She is soulful, breathtaking, talented, captivating, and a bag of delicious chips. Her album ’21’ is like reading a great book from start to finish. It holds your attention, makes you dance and cry, and keeps us waiting for her to do the next thing: the sign of a great artist. Back to her performance. I balled like a newborn. It was so beautiful, and it’s one thing to hear it on the album, but to see her belt it out really takes you back. Enjoy the ballad, and I promise, if you’re still reading, the next song will pick you back up after you become a puddle of your former self.

2011 Oscars: Who Will Win Best Actor?

In: Donovan, Movies

I’m in the final stretch of my 2011 Oscar predictions, and only one acting category remains- Best Actor. Should I even bother writing this post? This category has the least amount of suspense heading to the 83rd Academy Awards. The statue is practically engraved with the name of this race’s clear frontrunner. There’s absolutely no way in hell an upset is brewing in this field.

The category features two first time nominees (James Franco & Jesse Eisenberg), two previous winners (Javier Bardem & Jeff Bridges) and another who’s had his date with an Oscar statue booked months ago (Colin Firth). In a unique twist, one of the nominees, is also one of this year’s co-hosts. So while the rest of them are sweating it out in the audience, Franco has to also entertain the millions of people watching the show. Talk about added pressure. Take a closer look at this year’s Best Actor nominees, and don’t forget to cast your vote for your favorite nominated actor afterwards.

Kelly Osbourne Is The New Taylor Momsen

In: Donovan, Fashion

Poor Taylor Momsen. She just can’t get a break. When Madonna and her daughter, Lourdes Leon, launched their new juniors line exclusively for Macy’s, they enlisted the Gossip Girl star to be the face of their new venture. But that was then, and this is now. Kelly Osbourne has been tapped to replace Momsen as the new celebrity pitchwoman for Material Girl’s spring 2011 campaign. The multi-media campaign will debut in April issues of Seventeen, Teen Vogue and other magazines, but we’ve got your first look now.

Shot by fashion photographer Brooke Nipar in New York City’s East Village, Osbourne wears a variety of Material Girl’s spring looks. No matter what she’s wearing, the 26-year-old looks chic, playful and gorgeous. Girlfriend is really loving her new svelte look. Judging by her new boss’ statement, I’d say the mother/daughter duo are happy with their new brand ambassador.

“Kelly represents a true Material Girl. She is edgy, cool and has a unique sense of style that Lola and I love,” – Madonna

The love isn’t just a one way street. Osbourne, also, has nothing but great things to say about her new employers.

“I take so much of my style from Madonna in the ’80s and I really admire how Lola dresses and that she stays true to herself,” – Kelly Osbourne

Recently, it was announced that CorbinFisher would be suing some 40,000 BitTorrent users by way of their IP addresses, for illegally downloading their (gay porn) content. Understandable I suppose, given that a law is being broken, but the reason why the case is controversial is because of the likelihood that the lawsuit may cause closeted teens living in homophobic households to be outed…and who knows what could happen after that.

CorbinFisher’s lawyer, Marc Randazza recently stated, “Liberty Media produces straight content too. So any thieving little shit who gets caught can very easily lie to his parents that he was looking at straight porn.” Wow, really professional. Also, published this response from Randazza, “I have allowed them [accused file sharers] every courtesy I could, and have offered to support virtually any lie they want me to support (for example, they were looking at Corbins Coeds). Nobody has ever taken me up on that offer.”

Homorazzi Chats With Mark Ballas Of DWTS

In: Interviews, Music, TV Shows, Tyrell

Monday night, Patrick and I got an exclusive chance to check out Mark Ballas from Dancing With The Stars in another element of his career – music. Mark put on an acoustic show at The Roxy here in Vancouver for charity. I knew Mark could sing from hearing some of his music with friend Derek Hough and having performed on DWTS, but hearing it live was even better. This boy is talented.

His acoustic set included songs from his latest album HurtLoveBox which is available on iTunes plus a few songs to get the crowd singing along. One of my favorite covers he did was Sexual Healing and Rihanna’s Rude Boy. Regardless of style or genre, Mark had the crowd melting like butter with his smooth vocals and incredible guitar skills. But don’t think that he’s given dancing up.

Mark says in the interview that he would love to be touring and playing music, opening for huge artists, but at the end of the day, he has been doing both dancing and singing just as long and loves to do them both. Again, he can’t talk about the upcoming season of DWTS, but he does mention a few partners he’d love to see hit the ballroom. Mark’s also had some pretty great partners including Kim Kardashian and more recently, Bristol Palin. There is no doubt that Mark is talented and as you’ll be able to see in the interview, the nicest guy.

Listen To Britney “How I Roll” Teaser

In: Music, Patrick

Dr. Luke just released a teaser of another new Britney Spears song from her upcoming album, Femme Fatale. This one is called “How I Roll“, although so far it isn’t my favorite of the ones that have been released, it does sound fun and I’m sure it’s going to grow on me when I hear it from start to finish. It’s kinda like a dirtier bubblegum pop song, with Britney singing about meeting up with her posse downtown and doing some tequila shots. So far, my favorite song we’ve heard a teaser of is “I Wanna Go“. It’s gonna be huge.

Dr. Luke notes that the song is produced by Bloodshy and Avant, who we know as the Grammy-winning duo behind Spears’ huge smash hits “Toxic” and “Piece Of Me.”

Lady Gaga is the latest person to lend their face to MAC Cosmetic’s Viva Glam campaign. Whatever the “Born This Way” singer gets involved with, you have to expect the unexpected. Case in point, her new commercial for the cosmetics company. Not only does Gaga get her glamor on, and the video clip elegantly shot, but in true Gaga fashion, it’s a little weird as well. It’s like Gaga called up David Lynch and the two took some serious acid.

There’s something eerily spooky about the two minute long clip. If you look closely, you’ll notice a couple of bedazzled skulls, a martini glass with what looks like a fish swimming in it… at least, I hope it’s a fish. But by and far the creepiest part of all, is the background music playing while Gaga hauntingly puts her lipstick on, with a stare that could scare the bejesus out of me. Check out the clip below for yourself and see what you think.
