Last week Roger Moore passed away. Admittedly not my favorite “James Bond,” he gets nothing but props for holding down the franchise, and taking on the role more than any other actor. Moore himself, expressed that Daniel Craig is the “Best Bond,” in his opinion. I’ve enjoyed Craig’s performances as well. His delivery in “Casino Royale” solidified the re-boot of the franchise and I think “Skyfall” is the best Bond feature of all.
Just off the set with Digable Planets and Ro James, among others at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater, for ATL’s Funk Fest, Erykah Badu brought the heat to the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans this Memorial Day weekend on the 28th.
In the wee hours of the morning DC Comics blanketed any one who “Likes” Marvel Comics with their timeline for upcoming films. I was having a bit of insomnia, and happened to catch it in my peripheral vision, while posting “Happy Birthday” to friends on Facebook.
At it’s inception, Netflix was a cool idea, despite it’s analog entry into the mainstream. Digital was at the onset of the brand, however a solid cyber foundation was required to couple strategic timing and marketing. The evolutionary medium recently acquired the rights to air the NBC hit, “The Black List” that stars James Spader, for two-million dollars per episode recently. Now they’ll enable subscribers to see brand new films simultaneously as they’re released in theaters! It begins with the sequel to the Ang Lee hit “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
There’s a lot of new music out there! Now, all new music isn’t necessarily good or FUNKY, but here’s some that is… acknowledging “Ladies First”, out of the world of hip-hop, is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea. An Australian recording artist and model from Mullumbimby, New South Wales, she’s got “It.”
The hit AMC television series “Breaking Bad” ends this summer. Starring Bryan Cranston as “Heisenberg,” it co-stars Aaron Paul who portrays “Jesse” on the show. While a family was on tour in Los Angeles from Ireland, Paul left his home to greet them at their van. See the clip below, apologies for the doughnut w/ annoying commentator:
Holy Summer Blockbusters! Universal’s “The Purge” will lead the box office this weekend for raking in the dough. The film studio is riding high right now, as “Fast & Furious 6” topped the box office last week, making it number-one two weeks in a row! I just knew “After Earth” would take the top spot, since ‘Furious’ was released for Memorial Day Weekend… WRONG!
This Friday and over the next several months, seven FUNKY Sci-Fi flicks are set to hit the silver screen. Starring the likes of Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Tilda Swinton, Idris Elba, Matt Damon, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, it looks like we’re in store for some great acting amidst the stars.
