Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

Eye Candy: Slave Boys, Female Heroes, Werewolf Routines

The Week in Eye Candy. You deserve it. It's almost the weekend. Soak up the color, the bods, the glamour. Enjoy the diva and the doodles. There's something for everyone unless you're so niche you're impossible to please in which case scroll quickly away (try puzzles or trailers or Oscar buzz)

Jamie the Slave Boy

The Eagle hit DVD (well apart from Netflix which is on a epically annoying month-delay now). Director, Please thinks the whole movie makes no sense on account of why would Channing Tatum spare slave boy Jamie Bell's life...unless there was lust involved. Well, yes. Fair point. But does audience lust count?

Lea Seydoux's Breasts 

She didn't get to roll on the floor or handle fire arms in Midnight in Paris (note that old vinyl records don't pack a punch) but she gets to do just that in the Mission: Impossible -Ghost Protocol trailer. Her girls look even better in action... 

Jude Law, Lady Gaga and more after the jump

Paula Patton vs. Lea Seydoux: GIRLFIGHT!

Giant Fucking Robots
No no, not Transformers... 

You deserve much better in your life. You deserve.... me"

Gigolo Joe, what do you know? Did you know that Steven Spielberg's divisive A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) turned 10 years old this week? I rented it to give it one more chance (I hated it previously but for Jude Law's love machine... sigh.) but the disc was cracked. A sign that I was right the first time? Or mere coincidence.

But I'll always have eyes for Joe... and, more accurately, Jude.

Panda Gaga

Lady Gaga's Eye Makeup in general. Celebrities always get credit for everything but you know they're probably rarely the ones dreaming up their hot looks. Gaga's makeup team is so inspired. P.S. Two weeks ago I meant to share my theory that the Edge of Glory video is a weird unintentional mashup of both Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman (origin sequence) & Halle Berry's Catwoman (costume)... but I'm obviously never going to get around to it.

Gratuitous Workouts

Someone filled out in the all the right places. I don't know whether to kill him or lick him.

That's Tyler Hoechlin (Road to Perdition) in his new series Teen Wolf in a hilariously gratuitous sequence where he works out (lots of pec and back closeups) until he discovers, whilst doing one arm push-ups (of course. and Hee!) that his home has been invaded. Then he gets tasered by his nemesis, a female hunter, who gets that line above, the single campiest thing that's ever been said on that show. So what'cha think?



Before I asked I should have stated that he may have filled out since Road to Perdition (anyone remember that he got a BFCA nomination for that? LOL) but he obviously opted to spend his money on personal trainers rather than acting coaches.  Priorities! Over at Towleroad today, I'm talking up the gratuitous pec-sploitation of Teen Wolf so if you're one of the 5 readers who actually watches Teen Wolf -- which I will try to stop talking about right now -- give that a looksie.

"Strong Female Characters" 

Hark, a Vagrant!'s new comic strip is worth several full-bellied LOLs. Click on this image above for the comics and the frame above gets all animated.

You have to understand that exposing most of my body makes people focus on the star on my cap, and that star stands for AMERICA not to mention the freedom of movement, it's all very practical when you get down to it.

The costuming jokes are too much (fun).

John T -- yep. all grown up. 23 years old now (though to me he looks older. but i always think that about chiseled tall muscle-bound types)

The second still of the workout sequence reminded me of the Fincher Freedom video.
MTV series. Duh ;)

June 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

Well, actually the whole thing (even if I didn't watch it) is similar in concept (and lighting) to the Freedom video.

June 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

James and John... are you brothers? ;)

June 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNathaniel R

I'm not related to either James or John, but I wanted to chime in mostly for Jamie Bell. And most definitely, lust was involved. Speaking of, I need to see that film.

July 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

Ha! We're all a big happy family. The T family. (Not Tea!!!)

July 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJames T
