TV
The Good Guys

Photobucket

Last night the new Fox show The Good Guys premiered. The Good Guys is a 1 hour police comedy with a 70s feel starring Colin Hanks and Bradley Whitford. Hanks is the young by the book cop and Whitford is the washed up alcoholic cop. I must say that I totally dug it. The commercials looked really fun and I’ve been a fan of Colin Hanks for years but just because I like one of the stars doesn’t mean I’ll always end up continuing to watch the show. I was also worried because a pilot is sometimes the best episode of a series. They showed previews for the upcoming episodes though and they looked pretty awesome. Of course this show already has something stacked against it: It’s starting in the summer. This was a “Preview Event”. The show will beginning airing in it’s regular time spot Mondays at 9PM ET on May 31st with a reairing of the Pilot. Check out the Official site. They have goodies like wallpapers and a screensaver on there. This doesn’t really have to do with the show but I think Hanks is getting cuter. I think he’s gonna be like smokin hot in 5 years.

Party Down
Photobucket
If you haven’t seen Party Down yet you don’t know the level of hilarity you’re missing. It’s a comedy about struggling actors who moonlight as caterers. Ken Marino stars. To find out more read this unconventional DVD talk review of the show. If you have Netflix you must stream seasons one and two immediately. New episodes from season 2 are actually added to Netflix on Fridays before the show even airs on Starz. The 1st season was also recently released on DVD.

SNL
Last Saturday was the season finale of SNL hosted by Alec Baldwin. I love Baldwin but the show was uneven. My favorite sketches was the Timecrowave faux infomercial.

I, like most people, loved the recent Betty White episode. She was truly hilarious.

The Office
Between Michael being a mistress and Dwight being a manwhore, last week’s episode of The Office The Chump was pretty stellar.

Ghost Whisperer
Photobucket
Jennifer Love Hewitt’s show was recently canceled after 5 seasons. The last episode airs this Friday. There are rumors that it will get picked up by ABC but they say that about a lot of shows and it rarely happens. The show has been resuscitated and revamped a bunch of times already. I’m a fan but I haven’t been a fan of all of the changes. I like Jamie Kennedy but I hate his character. I thought Jay Mohr was awesome but then he got Gary, Unmarried and they replaced him with Kennedy. When they brought Melinda’s husband back in another body that was a little to far out for me but ultimately very touching. I hated what they did for the current season though which was speed up time. I hate when children become the focus of the show which is what happened. So even though I loved being able to watch JLH in something every week it kind of needed to go (or be changed once again). Hey at least I’ll stop buying vintage dresses off of eBay on Friday nights.
P.S. Jamie Kennedy is the only celebrity to ever block me on twitter because I said they should get rid of him. I also said his head was too fat but he didn’t block me then. xd

You should go watch these Boba Fetish videos starring Chris Gore, very funny.

NightStalker
You can watch all 10 episodes of Stuart Townsends’ very cool, short lived, supernatural drama Night Stalker on IMDB right now.

FILM
Netflix
I haven’t seen a lot of new stuff added to Netflix lately so I went through and just picked some out.

Before Robert Downey Jr. was known as Iron Man, before he was showcasing his talent in awesome, offbeat roles he was cranking out romcoms that I, and I’m sure other, little girl’s loved: Heart and Souls, Only You, Chances Are.

Robin Hood opened last weekend. My Ridley Scott picks are: G.I. Jane and Blade Runner.

Check out some of the flicks I mentioned in My Top Movies of 09 post: Spread, Spring Breakdown, Streets of Blood, Powder Blue.

Other Good Flicks: Sherry Baby, Pandorum, The Edge of Love.

TRAILERS

Still loves Hal Sparks. If you don’t follow him on twitter. You are missing stuff like this.

MUSIC
Amazon’s $5 MP3 albums aren’t as impressive this month. Check out the full list here. My picks are Volume Two-She & Him, Greatests Hits-Blondie,& This Is War-30 Seconds to Mars.

Christina Aguilera
I really wasn’t sure if I liked Aguilera’s new song, Not Myself Tonight, when I watched the video a couple of times because I was focused on the video. Then I heard it in the car one day and caught myself singing along.

To all of the people who saying she is copying Lady Gaga or whoever: They aren’t the only one people to wear bright colors and crawl on the floor. (Tongue in cheek: Obviously she’s not copying me.) Just making a point that there are tons of people out there who try new things. It’s not a big deal. And FYI Xtina “reinvents” herself every album. Either like her or don’t.

TV
Ugly Betty
Recently Ugly Betty had it’s Series Finale. I was a fan of the show during the first season. I knew I had to check it out because I had been a fan of America’s from Real Women Have Curves and I loved Eric Mabius in Black Circle Boys when I was a teen. Over the next few years it was a little too over the top. I only watched it occasionally. I thought that the finale was really good but they could have made it 2 hours. You can watch it on ABC.

FILM
Netflix
Flicks now streaming on Netflix include Moon (Sam Rockwell), A Scanner Darkly and Tape. I highly recommend all three of these films.

TRAILERS
I Love You Philip Morris-I’ve been dying to see this movie starring Jim Carrey as a newly gay con man who falls for Ewan McGregor. Unfortunately the release date keeps getting pushed. It was March, then April, now it’s fall. At this rate the DVD won’t be out until 2011, sigh.
YouTube Preview Image

Dinner For Schmucks-This flick starring Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis is a remake of the 1998 French film the Dinner Game which is very funny. It’s about a group who try to outdo each other by inviting the dumbest guest to dinners. This one looks like a winner.
YouTube Preview Image

The Killers-I’m not really sure about this one. It’s an action romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. She hasn’t made a good romantic comedy yet.
YouTube Preview Image

Beastly-This is getting press because of Mary-Kate Olsen appearing in it. It’s like MTV’s take on the Beauty and the Beast fable. I think I would have loved this as a preteen. It could be a big hit.

YouTube Preview Image

The Other Guys-Buddy cop comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as two doofy cops. At least it looks better than Cop Out.
YouTube Preview Image


The Big Lebowski
: A XXX Parody-You know I love these porn parody trailers.

It’s the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. There was recently an issue of Entertainment Weekly out featuring rarely seen photos. Of course my favorite are of Han Solo. Ford will be doing a rare Q&A about the film in Hollywood next month but unfortunately the tickets are already sold out.

They have a lot more available but these are my picks.

REQUIRED READING

Mag Cloud is a service that will publish your magazine for you. I used to run an e-zine when I was in high school so this is right up my alley. The cons are print media isn’t being read as much when you can get so much on the net for free and a single issue can get pricey when you add up $.20 per page for the company plus shipping and your markup.

zoe
Zoe Saldana: Center Stage in April’s Nylon. I recommend picking up the issue to check out the full article. She doesn’t tip toe around what she believes in. She even makes a remark about (I’m guessing) her Death at a Funeral costar Chris Rock.

America’s Next Top Model had a vampire shoot this week. Apparently it was to capitalize on the current vampire craze. I’ve always loved vampires & was hoping for more. Some of the photos were cool but as a whole the girls didn’t seem that into it & the judges didn’t make enough ridiculous complaints. (Yeah, it’s a guilty pleasure to like that, I know.)

90s Love

Posted by missemmamm on March 24, 2010

Lately I’ve really gotten back into all things 90s. Not really surprising because that was my era.
Photobucket

Photobucket
Pauly Shore
I’ve watched Encino Man many times over the years and it still holds up. I recently rented In The Army Now because of my whole military fetish and it wasn’t quite as good as I remember. Of course, Pauly Shore always was an acquired taste but I had a crush on him. I remember when I was at an Angel con a few years back and James Leary told us about him trying to trick girls into coming to his place by mentioning his dogs. I was like “It would work on me”.

Film
Netflix currently has some fun 90s movies on streaming including 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, Josie and the Pussycats, The First Wives Club, Scream, Spice World and Sugar & Spice. (You must already be logged into your Netflix account for those direct links to work.)

90s Style
I’ve even been looking back at the 90s makeup fondly while watching Untamed Heart and Threesome which is funny because I didn’t like it when some of my friends actually did their makeup like that back in Jr. High. Some of the fashion was fun and some was awful. Plus we even got bad advice. When I was in Jr. High I was in a teen book club. One month I got a book on beauty that featured a photo of the cast of 90210. It said if you want to look good try a white tee tucked into jeans (they were high waisted). You can see most of these are from TV shows but I’m not going into TV because I watched a lot of it back then and it would take forever. Some of it doesn’t stand the test of time. I did love SNICK though.

Film
I have to admit that I love streaming Netflix over my blu ray player. Recently they added Woody Allen’s Whatever Works, Nine Dead starring Melissa Joan Hart and Weeds Season 5. I watched Whatever Works as soon as they added it and it was excellent. I haven’t watched Nine Dead but MJH has been tweeting about it for months. I watched about half of this season of Weeds on the net when it was airing and wasn’t getting into it as much as previous seasons but still want to catch up.

When They Were Young

Posted by missemmamm on February 26, 2010

Photobucket
So not too long ago my friend scodal posted this photo of Christopher Walken that was taken when he was young. For like a second I was creeped out. Now I’ve actually had a crush on Walken since the ’90s when he got all uber cool doing the SNL hosting gigs & that Fatboy Slim video. But it still caught me off guard because I had never seen him young before. Well I ultimately thought it was hot and made it my desktop background.

Last night I was screwing around on the net and thought maybe I’d do a search for hot actors when they were younger. I think that many actors are hot at any age but it still fun. P.S. I do not own the rights to the photos & didn’t take the time to save all of the site names I found them on but if 1 is from your site & you want credit (or it removed) let me know. Thanks.
