Movie Review: Tron Legacy

In: Donovan, Movies

When I first heard Disney was making a sequel for the 80s classic flick “Tron“, I was beyond excited. The original movie was a favorite of mine growing up and I also loved the Atari video game. The first movie was actually inspired by the video game Pong for Atari. Talk about going full circle. With such a huge cult following, would the sequel live up to the first movie filmed almost 30 years ago? The original movie not only became a cult classic, but received fairly positive reviews and praised for the visuals and acting when it was first released.

Rather than trying to give you brief overview of the movie and risk giving away spoilers, I thought I’d post the official synopsis from Walt Disney Pictures. At least this way, if anything spills, it’s on the hands of the studio.

Sam Flynn (Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade — a signal that could only come from his father– he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a cyber universe — a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.

More Madonna On The Way!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

The Queen of Pop is not ready to pass on her crown to Gaga just yet. Madonna just sent out the following message to her her Facebook followers:

“Its official! I need to move. I need to sweat. I need to make new music! Music I can dance to. I’m on the look out for the maddest, sickest, most bad ass people to collaborate with. I’m just saying…… – Madonna.”

Next is going to be an amazing year of Pop music if she gets it together for 2011. Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and Madonna all releasing new albums in the same year. Fantastic!

Perhaps a Lady Gaga and Madonna collaboration would be fitting?

Movie Review: How Do You Know

In: Movies, Tyrell

Opening in theatres today is the newest romantic comedy from Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson. Its called How Do You Know? The story begins with Reese’s character Lisa waiting to hear if she will be playing on Team USA for women’s baseball. She’s also dating famous Washington National’s pitcher, Matty played by Owen Wilson. George, played by Paul Rudd is in trouble with the company he works for, which is also owned by his father, played by Jack Nicholson.

As the story progresses, Lisa doesn’t make the team, and her relationship with Matty becomes more complicated as the not-so-monogomous player invites her to move in with him. As George falls deeper and deeper into trouble with the company, he falls more and more in love with Lisa. Through the friendship he builds with her, he finally makes the move to win her heart.

I am usually a sucker for a good romantic comedy but this one wasn’t my favorite. I’m not sure what it was that made me not enjoy it as much as I usually would have. I think it was the annoying friendship that Lisa and George had. I will say that Owen Wilson’s character is really funny and has some of the best lines in the movie. Jack Nicholson is also quite funny in the movie and the relationship he has with Paul Rudd is hilarious. I think this flick is more of a renter than a go to the theatres and see kind of film. I would say that its absolutely for those days you need a little laugh, a little cry and a little pick-me-up.

For the month of December, we’ve shared a few of the hottest 2011 calendars out there. From firefighters, to models, to rowers to straight guys against hate, we’ve featured a lot of sexy hunks in little or no clothing. While they were all hot, I have to say the boys in “Rugby’s Finest Hunks 2011 Calendar” blow them all out of the water. Compared to these wet dreams, all the others are fugly hookers.

Throughout the year I follow a few sports casually, but after seeing these big muscly rugby players, I really need to add the English Rugby league to my viewing schedule. The sport of rugby probably has the hottest guys in the sporting world. Just check out my selection for this week’s weekly crush, David “Wolfman” Williams as Exhibit A. No disrespect to models, but there’s just something extra appealing about a good looking guy who excels in their sport. Perhaps it’s their bodies sweating during competition or the idea of group showers. Whatever it is, athletes are super sexy. Check out the following English rugby players to prove my point.

Top 10 Highest Paid Reality Stars

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

You may hate to love them, but the reality is, people love Reality TV and the stars are getting rich. Reality TV first took off with Survivor over a decade ago, but in the passed few years, it has evolved into so much…less than that. Forget the elaborate challenges and exotic locations, simply following around spoiled brats or watching people make fools of themselves whilst pissed drunk is now making some people richer than you can imagine. I’m sure this has kids some kids saying, “Forget being a doctor or fireman, mommy, I wanna be a reality star when I grow up!”

Some reality stars are better than others at making the most of what has been handed to them and seizing the many money-making opportunities around them. A lot of the top earning reality stars came from money anyway, while others are just getting started. From book deals, to appearance fees, to Dancing & Skating With The Stars, to product endorsements…Reality TV has opened many doors for many people. The Daily Beast has compiled the list of the Top 10 highest paid reality stars this past year. Who do you think is number one? Check out the list below.

Carrie Underwood “Play On” Concert Review

In: Dan, Music

After the spending previous night in the interior of BC, playing a show in Penticton, Carrie Underwood soared into Vancouver last night for the next stop on her Play On tour. She took to the stage at Rogers Arena (formerly GM Place) and belted out her latest hits and a few surprise treats to the sell-out crowd.

I decided to surprise one of my best girls, Saxon, to an early Christmas gift by taking her to the concert, unbeknownst to her until we were literally walking up to the stadium. The shock and excitement on her face made the entire idea worthwhile! Believe me, it was hard not to call her every night leading up to the concert to shriek giddily about the amazing night in store, but I held my tongue! For weeks!! I was nearly dying from hidden excitement!

Carrie’s first opening act, Nashville band Sons of Sylvia, left many mouths agape with both their looks and talent. Probably best known for their songs, Love Left to Lose and I’ll Know You, these boys were fantastic. Naturally we were running into the stadium as these boys took to the stage and unfortunately missed the first song of their performance, but they sounded pretty fantastic (and the crowd appeared to love them) as we stood in line for cold beverages.

Heather apparently agrees, check out what she said about her new gig:

“Brittany is the biggest flirt on Glee, so there’s that – not to mention I’m obsessed with the Flirt makeup,”

As a side note, Tootsie lip color is Morris’ favorite product. Flirt Cosmetics is a division of Estee Lauder Company Inc.’s BeautyBank. Her duties as the brand’s new ambassador include pimping out Flirt’s mascara, All That Lash, and their new scent, Luv-a-Licious.
