So I saw The Time Traveler’s Wife last week. My wife and I decided to cash in on a Fandango pass and watch a free movie. We got to the theater with plenty of time and found some great seats. I love the theater. I always get excited to go; it just makes the movie experience so much better.
Obviously, I was pretty psyched and ready to watch an awesome movie. (I had seen an interview with Rachel McAdams on the Daily Show so my interest was peaked). Read More…
I wish Project Runway would have simply run, run, away, from our TV screens. But, no luck.
Last night was the premier of Project Runway Season 6, only this time it aired on a new network–Lifetime–in a new city–Los Anegeles–and at a new school–Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Maybe the producers thought they could inject some more life into the program. (Hey, Lifetime. I get it).
And what’s up with Lifetime airing this show? I’m used to watching sappy stories of mothers losing their sons and women leaving their husbands. You know these shows, right? At least you’ve been surfing channels and seen the commercials. The intense violin music starts and the announcer, in a deep, bellowing voice declares: “A mother’s love for her son…a son who is missing…this weekend on Lifetime, watch the desperate tale of a family searching for their missing sonin…My Child is Missing….”
For the second time this year, rumors flew that Eddie Murphy was dead. Well, that’s just plain false. Quite spectacular how fast news can fly on the web, eh?
Well, what is a true rumor is that things are in the works for a 4th Beverly Hills Cop. I suppose this could be terrible news, however. There have been a few sequels in recent movie years (the Bourne series) that have been great, perhaps even better than the first. But more often than not, the sequel or “fivequel”–whatever you want to call it–just suck. What readily comes to mind is the 4th Indian Jones.
The original “Beverly Hills Cop” grossed $316 million worldwide and led to two sequels, the last of which appeared in theaters in 1994. The series has grossed $712.9 million.
I really hope Eddie Murphy does it right this time. His recent film have either been too childish or too boring (or both) for me to enjoy. We’ll see what he can do.
