Science meets greed in this gloriously-filmed movie from director James Cameron. It’s been in the works for several years- only taking a backseat to wait for technology to catch up to his vision.
And what a vision it is! Click below to read about it and come discuss with us in our forums!Details
By now everyone knows that Natalie won Survivor Samoa. For being nice. For being humble. For doing nothing, in this writer’s opinion. Seriously, what did she do in the game? She aligned with Russell and talked to a few people to get Erik voted out (at Russell’s bidding I might add). Natalie is, in my…Details

[singlepic id=180 w=320 h=240 float=left]For those of you that watch SYTYCD, what a terrific season finale it was last night. The top 4 dancers were definitely the most deserving of the bunch… America certainly got it right this time. The final four consisted of Jakob, Russell, Ellenore and Kathryn, and to this watcher, those were…Details

ABC announced today that they canceled his appearances on both the Jimmy Kimmel Show, as well as his appearance on Dick Clark’s Rocking New Year’s Eve Special. All this on the heels of his provocative performance at…Details
I LOVED the quick synopsis of this movie: girl is kidnapped and sold into a brothel; she meets a man…a man with MONEY!! Other girls in brothel are haters and give her a hard time. Okay, that was pretty quick and it’s pretty much what I read to make me rent it. MY Synopsis: Girl…Details
Photos appeared yesterday of Cleveland Indian’s Center Fielder, Grady Sizemore, who is entrancingly hot. He has his fan club of ladies, whom no doubt will be absolutely fawning over his body. He claims that they were for an ex-girlfriend, but they were stolen from his e-mail. Sucks to be a celebrity when you can’t even…Details

Okay, so Jeff from Big Brother 11 is known to be a semi-regular Tweeter, so suspicions arose amongst his followers earlier this week when he hadn’t sent a tweet since 11/22. Then sightings of him and Jordan, wearing identical blue in NC, being filmed by a crew in an unmarked van started swirling about, plus a suspicious visit to the CBS lot the last time they were in L.A. with no reason given for it (i.e. some BB thing, etc, which obviously would’ve been announced).
Then just today Season 16 of the Amazing Race kicked off with filming in L.A. and you guessed it, internet spoilers started a’flowin, including team sightings at LAX and one of those teams was Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd from Big Brother 11! Fans have clamored for them to be on TAR and their popularity with viewers this summer is undisputable. Check in with our TAR 16 forum here for all the latest news, gossip and spoilers!
But first, ;), how about a picture of them at LAX? (Check our forum for more!)

Lambert, who claims he is nobody’s baby-sitter, had his appearance on Good Morning America canceled because of the stunt. Firing back, Lambert decided to go to CBS Morning…Details
The critics of this movie are all shining about Mo’Nique as the evil, selfish, lazy mother to Clareece (Precious) Jones; as well they should.
Mo’Nique is unrecognizable as the abusive mother of Precious, played by newcomer Gabourey Sidibe. You can barely associate her with the sassy/sexy/humorious comedienne that we’re all used to.
You want to throw her ignorant mother down a few flights of stairs after she just got done being chased around in a fish tank by a hungry, angry great white shark! Yes, Mo’Nique makes you hate her. But it’s Mary, Precious’ mother, who you want to see burn on a stake while medievil prayers are chanted to save her soul. Mary’s very ignorance of life and need to “stay on the welfare” will have you saying “Oh no!” all throughout the film. When she plays nice for a visiting social worker, it’s quite humorous.Details
Chris Pine is great as James T. Kirk: he has the flirtatiousness, arrogance and egotistical charm that William Shatner gave the character so many years ago.
Zachary Quinto is a perfect Spock: he brings the seriousness, intelligence & stern need for duty that Leonard Nimoy brought to Spock’s character in the 60’s.
Zoe Saldana plays a very young, upbeat Uhura. Sexy, smart & energetic sides of Uhura that we rarely saw in Nichelle Nichols are portrayed as a playful, but serious Zoe as the communications specialist.
There’s nothing that’s cheesy about this movie; you don’t roll your eyes in your head at any lines and no uncomfortable moments with sexy scenes. The humor is there, but only in the right moments.
I was grateful enough to see this movie at an IMAX theater, so it was no surprise that I’d invest in the DVD…even if buying it for my mother was a good excuse.Details
