Los Angeles is well known for a being a city of clashing cultures and this years LA Film Festival found its opening night film competing with the aftermath of the LA King hockey championship celebration. It all happened around the LA Live center that includes the mammoth Staples Center, Club Noikia and the LA Live Regal Cinemas.

Warner Bros. Pictures held the World Premiere recently for MAGIC MIKE at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, as the closing night gala of the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. MAGIC MIKE makes me think of Chippendale’s, where male strippers dressed in costume and performed for women of all ages, as the patrons screamed and stuffed money into the pants of the strippers…and no men were allowed in! Seen walking the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, […]Read On »

Movie Review: MAGIC MIKE

MAGIC MIKE poster | ©2012 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer, Riley Keogh, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias Writer: Reid Carolin Director: Steven Soderbergh Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: June 29, 2012 It should be noted that in a thoroughly unscientific poll taken by this reviewer, virtually every heterosexual woman queried wanted to see MAGIC MIKE. Most of them did not care what the plot was like, or whether there would even be a plot. This may demonstrate that there’s a relatively untapped audience out there eager for male eye candy, or it […]Read On »

TV Review: TRUE BLOOD – Season 5 – “Whatever I Am, You Made Me”

Rutina Wesley in TRUE BLOOD - Season 5 - "Whatever I Am, You Made Me" | ©2012 HBO/John P. Johnson

Just in case we weren’t aware of the keen contributions normally made to TRUE BLOOD by Rutina Wesley’s blunt-spoken Tara and Kristin Bauer van Straten’s brilliantly acerbic Pam, the episode “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” drives the point home by muffling both characters. Make no mistake, Tara and Pam are both front and center here, it’s just that they’re both in dead serious mode. Newly-vamped Tara, having fled from her cousin Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Sookie (Anna Paquin), almost kills a helpless woman changing a tire. Tara gets some self-control and takes shelter with old boss/boyfriend/shapeshifter Sam (Sam Trammell). […]Read On »
