After suffering thru the atrociousness of the absolutely HORRENDOUS Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I was certain that I would never pay to see another Transformers film. But, after seeing the teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon last December, I was convinced the new film would be better … cuz there was no way it could be worse. Yesterday, I made my way out to the Arclight Theater to see T3 and found that, for the most part, I enjoyed the movie. Oh, it’s not without it’s HUGE faults but overall … I did like the flick. More »

"I did things with him that nobody else did"
Just days after the 2 year anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death, OK! magazine is publishing an interview with troubled pop star Aaron Carter wherein he claims that MJ gave him drugs and alcohol during hang out sessions. Altho Aaron takes some responsibility by saying that he “could’ve refused” the offers of illicit (and illegal) items, it’s clear that the interview is meant to cast the late King of Pop in a negative light … but for what purpose?

Lohan on the Loose
Yesterday was a big day for Lindsay Lohan … after spending about a month in house arrest (inside her luxury beachfront home, where she was free to booze it up to her heart’s content despite the fact that she was being “punished” for her crimes), Lindsay was released from house arrest and became a free woman once again. Altho Lohan still has many hours of community service to complete and many months of probation left on her sentence, she is now FREE! Lindsay wasted no time getting out of her home and back into the public eye … and back into the party scene. More »

Last night David and I met up with our friends Ollie, Woody and Darion for a fun concert night at the Staples Center to see Rihanna on her Loud Tour. Darion and I saw Rihanna on tour last year so we were very excited to see her perform again this year. I managed to stay away from photos and videos of this tour so as not to spoil the show and was very happy to see that Rihanna‘s live show changed pretty dramatically from last year to this year.

Last night, against my personal wishes, I went to a showing of Bad Teacher with Darion, Josh and David and, I’m actually surprised to say, it was actually a pretty fun night. Bad Teacher is nowhere near the best movie of the year and, to be honest, I wouldn’t even call it a great movie … but it’s pretty good and much better than I was expecting. For the most part, the film was pretty predictable but, try as I might, I couldn’t resist laughing out loud once or twice. Bad Teacher wasn’t a good movie, necessarily … but it also isn’t a terrible movie. More »

"[T]hey're working on it now"
While promoting his new film Larry Crowne, which held its Hollywood premiere here in LA last night, Tom Hanks dished to the BBC that Pixar is “working … now” on the sequel film Toy Story 4. As you may recall, Toy Story 3 was a HUGE hit last year and just last weekend, the animated short Toy Story: Hawaiian Vacation debuted in front of showings of Cars 2 in theaters. Clearly, there is still very much interest in the Toy Story characters … and where there’s interest, there’s money … and where there’s money, there are movie sequels. More »

"Chilling with the Middletons. Tweeting from Davos. And still the People's Princess."
Diana, the Princess of Wales would’ve been 50 years old this Friday had she not died in that tragic car accident back in 1997 and this week the US magazine Newsweek imagines what her life would be like today if she had lived. For their coverphoto, Newsweek has even gone so far as to Photoshop Diana to make her look 50 and placed her alongside Kate Middleton, who just married her son Prince William. I have to say … this entire Newsweek feature on what Diana might be like at 50 (had she not died 14 years ago) is really kinda creepy … click below to see for yourselves. More »
"from knoxville with love"
Last week, just days after Ryan Dunn was killed in a senseless drunk driving car accident, Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the Jackass family convened at a funeral home in West Chester, PA for a memorial service in honor of their late friend. At that memorial service, Knoxville tried to eulogize Dunn in front of family and friends but, apparently, was unable to do so as he would’ve liked. On the official Jackass website this week, Knoxville posted a touching eulogy to Ryan Dunn in order to express what he was unable to convey at the memorial service last week … and it is a very touching read.

Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, who was supposed to get married to Crystal Harris on June 18 but was left at the altar just days before the wedding day, has announced on Twitter that his new girlfriend is a Playboy Playmate named Shera Bechard. This news is a bit confusing because just days after his wedding to Crystal Harris was officially canceled, he moved twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon into the Playboy Mansion to live with him. Then, just days after that, he announced on Twitter that Anna Sophia Berglund was his new “best girl” … so that would make Shera Bechard girlfriend No. 2 … or No. 4? More »

Pauly D Says the 'JS' Cast is "Irreplaceable"
The cast of MTV‘s Jersey Shore, who have been making fools of themselves for the past month or so in the Italian city of Florence for the upcoming 4th season of the show, have made their way back to the actual Jersey Shore to begin filming the 5th season of their show. As you may recall, a report came out last week that claimed that MTV is lookin’ to replace the entire cast of the show with new guidos/guidettes after the completion of season 5 … but according to Paul Pauly D Delvecchio, the “irreplaceable” cast ain’t goin’ nowhere.

Bieber Fans Wanna Kill, Woman Dies at Own Funeral, Bieber Attacked
Earlier this week we saw photos of rumored lovebirds Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux all snuggled up in a seeming attempt to show the world that they are SO in LURVE. Today we learn that that seeming show of affection was just a precursor to a more public display of affection. Jennifer taped an episode of Inside the Actors Studio and she brought along Justin with her to the taping … sitting him front row center. I suppose it’s possible that he was just there to lend moral support as a friend but … I don’t think so. I think Justifer are doing everything they can to admit that they are together without actually admitting that they are, indeed, together. More »
One report says, Yes! Another says, No!
A new report out today claims that MTV is planning to hire an entirely new cast of people to star in their hit reality TV series Jersey Shore once the upcoming 5th season of the show finishes taping. On the contrary, another report claims that MTV is planning to do so such thing. In just a few short weeks, the 4th season of Jersey Shore — which was filmed entirely in Florence, Italy — will air on MTV and the 5th season of the series will begin filming in New Jersey next week … so new cast or not, there is still a lot of Snooki, JWoww and The Situation to come.

Crystal Harris's BFF is Hef's New Leading Lady
Early last week we learned that the planned wedding of 85-year old Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and 24-year old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris was called off after Harris decided she didn’t want to marry into Hef‘s Playboy lifestyle. Since the wedding was called off and Crystal moved out of the Playboy Mansion, Hefner called for reinforcements and had a pair of twin ex-girlfriends come home to the mansion to help him get over his broken heart. But, apparently, those young twins just aren’t enough to satisfy Hefner. Hugh announced on Twitter that he has a new “best girl” in his life, a young blonde woman named Anna Sophia Berglund … who not only happens to be one of Crystal Harris‘s BFFs but has been approved by Crystal herself to take her place in Hef‘s life. With all this partner juggling, it’s no wonder these people can’t get it together enough to get thru a single wedding. More »

No Punishment, No Surprise
Earlier today we learned that Lindsay Lohan was ordered to appear in court to face the judge after she reportedly failed at least one of two alcohol tests while under house arrest. TMZ is now reporting that Lindsay will face no punishment at all for this latest infraction. Apparently, Lindsay was only required to be tested in the months of January and February, which means she was essentially free to drink as much as she liked in the months since. Lohan will be forced to serve out the rest of her house arrest without having any parties … so that is how the court is choosing to punish her. More »

A Scene by Scene Duplicate of the Original
Last month we got our first look at promo photos from the upcoming remake film Footloose.

Everyone knows that if a pop star decides to cover another artist’s song LIVE in concert, they better know the lyrics to that song but sometimes, well, that doesn’t happen.

Insult to Injury
Yesterday morning we learned the sad news that Jackass star Ryan Dunn and a passenger were killed in an early morning car accident in Pennsylvania. The last photos of Dunn, posted himself online, showed him partying with friends at a bar while drinking alcohol just hours before the accident. As a result, film critic Roger Ebert tweeted the message “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive”. An enraged Bam Margera, who is a close friend of Dunn‘s, blasted Ebert for his comment … resulting in a public feud which, IMHO, just adds insult to the already terribly injury of Ryan‘s death. Additionally, the passenger who was also killed in the accident has been identified as one of the friends that Ryan was partying with at the bar before the accident took place. More »

Detroit Deliciousness Here in Hollywood
Because I was in Detroit this past half week for such a short time, I was unable to indulge in one of my favorite meals of all time — the Detroit Coney Island hot dog. In fact, I had planned to stopping in for a coney dog on Thursday night after the Lenka concert in Pontiac, MI but it was too late to do so. Thankfully, over the weekend, a Detroit-style, Detroit-owned coney island eatery opened on the Sunset Strip here in LA over the weekend!

Welp, so much for great expectations. It is with a heavy heart that I report that the DC Comics superhero film Green Lantern — which stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong and Peter Sarsgaard — is, at best, an average movie. Try as I might to like it, I came away from the seeing the film firmly convinced that Green Lantern is a solid C movie; a 5 out of 10. For every cool, awesome thing in the film there was a terrible, face palming thing to negate the positive. While I didn’t hate the movie entirely, I can’t say that I even came close to loving it.

Last night in Sacramento, CA, our dear Queen of Pop Britney Spears kicked off the first night of her much anticipated Femme Fatale Tour in front of a sold out house at the Power Balance Pavilion and, as I predicted, THRILLED the audience with a stellar performance! As you may recall, I was lucky enough to get an early preview of Britney‘s new tour last week and based on what I saw with my own eyes and heard LIVE with my own ears, I knew that Britney was going to absolutely SLAY the crowd once the tour got underway. Last night, the tour got underway and … Britney SLAYED!!! Click below to see photos from yesterday’s opening night performance to get a taste of what Britney brought to the stage. Check out photos of the merchandise that is available for sale and watch VIDEO in FULL of Britney performing the song Gimme More. Yes, it’s a wee bit spoilery but OMG how can you not look?! More »

Last month Showtime released a very early teaser promo for the upcoming 6th season of Dexter which used sound clips from the previous 5 seasons of the show.

Sadly, the Film is getting Bad Reviews :(
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were joined by their co-stars as well as friends and family at the Hollywood premiere of their new film Green Lantern, which opens in theaters tomorrow. Grauman’s Chinese Theater was the site of last night’s affair and the
red black carpet was packed with lots of GL fans. Unfortch, tho, as the release date gets closer, more and more less than favorable reviews keep coming out for the film … which kinda sucks cuz I really want this movie to be awesome. Click below to check out some photos from last night’s premiere before you (possibly) check out Green Lantern in the theaters tomorrow. More »

But what the HELL is it?
Author JK Rowling sent Harry Potter fans into a TIZZY yesterday with the launch of a new website called Pottermore. Altho there is absolute NO official information about the site, it has been sniffed out that Pottermore may become a sort of official online portal for Harry Potter fans. A representative for Rowling insists that the site has nothing to do with a new book or the final Harry Potter film to be released next month. HMMM. Click below to read some speculative commentary on what JK Rowling may have in store for us. More »

"Money isn't everything"
Earlier today we got to see the new EDITED version of this month’s issue of Playboy magazine that labels Crystal Harris as the “Runaway Bride” … right now we get to hear from Crystal herself about why she decided to call off the wedding. Crystal sat down with Entertainment Tonight to explain in pretty good detail exactly why she decided to call off her marriage to Hugh Hefner just days away from her wedding day this weekend. To be honest, I can actually sympathize with Crystal‘s reasoning in this interview. Check it out in full below and see what you think. More »

David and I spent our afternoon/evening/night flying cross country from LA to Detroit so that we could be here for Father’s Day weekend. Since we got in really late last night, I haven’t had the chance to see my parents yet but it sure is nice to be home again. The weather is a big muggy and the temperatures promise to soar but, hey, that’s Michigan in June. More »

The Best Children's Book EVER!!!!!
A few weeks ago, a new children’s book was released that caused a bit of a senstation because of its colorful title. The book, Go the Fuck to Sleep, was written by Adam Mansbach and was illustrated by Ricardo Cortés … and that is all well and good. BUT the audiobook version of Go the Fuck to Sleep was narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and that sent the book’s coolness factor thru the roof. Click below to hear Samuel L. Jackson narrate one of the cutest, funnest and best children’s books available for sale today. More »
