Movie Review: Machete

In: Movies, Patrick

Machete comes out today, and I had chance to cut the lines and check out the Quentin Tarantino-Robert Rodriguez “Grindhouse” type film yesterday. In case you don’t know, the film has tons of recognizable faces including, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Robert DeNiro, Linsday Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Rose McGowan, and more. The plot is that “after being betrayed by the organization who hired him, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.” His name? Machete.

The story revolves around Machete, played by Danny Trejo and he plays a former “Mexican Federale” turned renegade. After he runs into some trouble, Machete ventures out to do yard work in order to earn some cash. When he so desperately needs the money, a businessman and spin doctor shows up to save the day and needs his help. He tells Machete that the corrupt Senator is sending hundreds of illegal immigrants out of the country and to stop this, he needs Machete to kill the Senator in return for $150,000. He accepts, but we soon learn that it’s a set up, as you can expect. It turns out that the “spin doctor” set him up to make him look back and actually help the senators anti-immigration laws succeed.

Book Review: The Book Thief

In: Dan, Random Reads, The Arts

This year, 2010, has been an epic year for literature picks as I have nailed it out of the park (and impressing even myself) in respect to selecting books that truly rock my world and challenge the way I view myself, love, and life. A bold statement, but it had to said. I should take a step back before I give myself too much credit as the latest novel I recently finished was largely based on a recommendation. While in Mexico this last spring for my girl Jenny’s wedding I got to know a lot of her friends from other facets of her life. A group of us were out enjoying a dinner as the sun was setting into the ocean and the conversation turned to reading (a personal favourite topic – I may have steered it in this direction). It was during this banter that Lindsay and I discussed The Book of Negroes, which led her to encourage me to pick up The Book Thief. Well, my friends, all I have to say to her now is thank-you.

The Book Thief, written by Markus Zusak, is one of those books that I will remember for the rest of my life. I know it feels like I have been saying that a lot throughout some of my recent book reviews; however, I assure you that each read is literally coming to par with the previous competition. Stemming from the New York Times Bestseller list, I had an inkling that this book was going to leave me spellbound, I just wasn’t prepared for it to leave me speechless.

It comes only once in a lifetime, and just our luck, we get to celebrate it. “Beverly Hills, 90210″ debuted 20 years ago in 1990, and it’s reboot 2 years ago on this very date. But the reason why, it’s “90210 Day” is not because of these premiere dates, but rather of today’s date, September 2, 2010. That’s right, ya’ll. It’s 9-02-10.

In honor of this completely random and coincidental fact, I’m asking our readers which cast members (new or old) are your favorites. Since the original series ran for several years, I’m not going to list every character but just the ones that made the most impact. Some of you might think the old cast is simply going to run away with this. But after two years, the new cast is coming into their own and could give them a run for their money. The reboot is getting so much better and with Teddy coming out this season, it could top the original.

To start the ball rolling, I’ll list off my favorites: Clare Arnold; Naomi Clark; Brenda Walsh; Dylan McKay; Valerie Malone; Liam Court; and Silver. Cast your votes below. I can’t wait to see which ones are you favorites. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.

The OTHER Olsen Sister!!!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

“How Rude,” that we never hear about her… Her two older sisters (Mary-Kate & Ashley) have completely practically ignored her (in my humble opinion). What’s her name? Elizabeth Olsen.

She steps into the limelight, now an actress, and acting in an indie drama called, “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” It also stars John Hawkes, Sarah Paulson, Hugh Dancy, and Brady Corbet. It’s about “a young woman who goes to live with her older sister after escaping from a cult led by Hawkes,” according to The Wrap.

So…Elizabeth and Chace Crawford?

Two MuchMusic VJs Sign Off

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Two MuchMusic VJs, both of which were hired though the ever popular MuchMusic VJ Search as finalists/winners, are leaving the station. The names? Devon Soltendieck and Tim Deegan.

Devon has been a VJ on the station since way back in 2004, and has announced the news by way of his Twitter. On Tuesday, he tweeted about having to “tie up loose ends” at Much before apparently accepting a job at CP24 (“Toronto’s Breaking News”). On August 31st he tweeted, “Today is my last day ever @MuchMusic to follow a new career in news. Excited but very nostalgic today.”

The other, Tim Deegan, won the reality show VJ search on MuchMusic 5 years ago and announced his departure by way of his blog: “The time has come for me to leave Much Music, There is so much going through my head right now but I wanted to write you a letter…” You can read his entire letter below.

It’s no surprise to the people I know that I am obsessed with shoes and particularly runners/sneakers. Jeremy Scott‘s collaboration with Adidas is one in particular that I’ve noticed these past few years with his eccentric and whimsical designs. From the triple tongue runners to the metallic winged ones, this collaboration always seems to sell out and is probably one of the most successful partnerships in sneaker history (not counting the hugely successful collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto).

Probably even better than the late Alexander McQueen’s collaboration with Puma.

So, who is Jeremy Scott?

Find out & check out a bunch of pics of the shoe collaboration after the jump…

The National Enquirer has taken another stab at revealing John Travolta‘s sexuality and apparent affair with their manny – and call me gullible, but it kinda seems plausible AND N.E. is not the only one working on blowing the lid off his secret life.

Travolta graces the cover of this week’s issue of tabloid mag, claiming he’s been cheating on this 47 year old wife, Kelly Preston, who is due to give birth to a boy later this fall. Rumors in the past have suggested that the Church of Scientology threatened to out his sexuality if he ever left the “church”. Maybe that’s Tom Cruise’s excuse as well? Travolta had already been outed by former Scientologist, Michael Pattinson, who had said that Travolta got down & dirty with porn star Paul Barresi, among other men, at a secret gay spa.

A secret gay spa? Yep, that’s right. Author Robert Randolph is set to release a tell all memoir titled, “You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again,” which will reveal all of the known faces that were Spa-ted at the facility working on their shaft craft. Among some of the names?

Find out which other A-Lists has been visiting the GAY SPA!
