New Tomb Raider Videogame Unveiled

I’ll be the first to confess that as a long-time videogamer, I’ve NEVER once found Lara Croft to be polygonally attractive. The aqua-blue tank top, short-shorts, sunglasses and two guns was too…easy. Angelina did a good portrayal for the movies (and the late Michael Turner did an impressive version in the comic books), but the videogame version was just never that good-looking to me.

Ah, but after hearing the news that the long-outdated Tomb Raider franchise was being given to the developers at Square-Enix, it seemed like promising news. Lo and behold, Square-Enix has announced that they are doing an as-yet-untitled Prequel to the Tomb Raider franchise and have unveiled the new look for (a younger) Lara Croft!

They’ve given a drastically different look for Lara and I am privately sporting wood as to what the rest of her looks like! A good actress comparison for this new version would be hottie “Dexter” actress, Jennifer Carpenter. It’s almost uncanny!

.
Okay, I’m officially on-board with the new Tomb Raider game. Now I just have to wait a goddamned YEAR before I can play it. Fuckin’ ay, man!

Kevin Smith Is Still Too Fat To Fly

Yup, it’s happened again! Only this time, the outcome didn’t seem so bad. According to a report from People, Mr. Smith, his wife, and Jason Mewes were recently scheduled for a flight back to Los Angeles from JFK Airport in New York but arrived at the departure gates too late and were DENIED from boarding the airplane.

To make a long story short. Mr. Smith tried to board ten minutes before departure but got rejected at the door. Mr. Smith took a rescheduled flight but was given “lovely, apologetic email, full refund for flight, free tix offer – all before I’ve landed“. See? So I guess it’s not all that bad.

“The Tourist” Premiere in New York

The world premiere for Johnny Depp & Angelina’s new flick, “The Tourist” was held in New York last night and it only needed three things – Angelina Jolie in a smoking-hot leggy white dress, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt (in Jeff Bridges mode).

According to photog description, Angelina avoided talking to the Media. Guesses are stemming that maybe it was because Angelina didn’t want to address the whole “look-at-me” debacle with Chelsea Handler and you know what? She doesn’t need to!

I’m with the Angelina Alliance and Chelsea Handler is with the Aniston Anarchy and we don’t answer to jealous ex-wife bullshit! The Angelina Alliance is out in full force! Go, Angelina!

Alessandra Ambrosio To Pose in Bodypaint for SI?

This is quite the piece of juicy supermodel gossip if I may say so! A few people on the Alessandra Ambrosio forums have been noticing a Twitter conversation between photographer Stewart Shining and a Brazilian website called Strike Two Poses.

Apparently, there are hints between the Tweets that Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Alessandra Ambrosio, MIGHT be doing photoshoots in bodypaint for the 2011 issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue!

So is it Fact or Fiction? Other than Marisa Miller and Heidi Klum, Alessandra would be the only other VS model to don the coveted bodypaint. Plus I get to stare really closely at the, ummm…..paint job. If it’s true, that is.

.
UPDATE 12/07/2010: The report turned out to be just a rumor. Its been confirmed on Stewart Shining’s Facebook account that Alessandra is NOT doing Sports Illustrated at all. Goddamn it all!

Amber Heard Is a Lesbian – No One Is Surprised

In what was probably the worst-kept secret (and something I refused to believe at first), Amber Heard has confirmed her sexuality and has announced to the world that she loves GIRLS. The news was confirmed through a LGBT website called After Ellen and at the GLAAD Awards held over the weekend.

In case you’re wondering, Amber’s partner is none other than her photographer friend, Tasya Van Ree. And if you check on her photography website, the site is damned near riddled with nude images and videos of Amber, so it’s no surprise.

Am I bummed out about this news? Not at all! Considering that Amber is just way too incendiary for guys like me to handle, nothing can cool down Amber’s Angelic fire like a good ol’ Scissoring. WE LOVE AMBER!

Mel Gibson’s “The Beaver” Trailer Unveiled

The trailer for Mel’s latest flick finally got released onto Youtube yesterday! Scope out the trailer below and take a minute to remind yourself of just how great an actor Mel can be…..all personal rants and remarks aside, of course

Dr. Dre’s New Interview with XXL Magazine

The might, might D-R rarely does interviews or TV appearances. But the editors over at XXL Magazine (it’s a Hip Hop magazine if you don’t know) were able to score an Exclusive interview with the elusive producer and he gives his thoughts on various topics including – the “Detox” album, Jay-Z and Kanye West, the state of music, the 50 Cent/Game feud, and how he feels about his previous efforts.

Here’s a few of the Dr.’s quotes from the interview:

–His thoughts on Detox

“I’m tryna [sic] get it done. I’m really feeling it now. My energy has been back and forth with the record, tussling with doing it out of obligation, as opposed to doing it because I really feel it”

–His thoughts on modern Hip Hop

“It’s definitely big right now. But its definitely not as good to me right now….it’s just a lot of watered-down shit. It’s just a little too happy for my taste, a little too bubblegummish [sic] and shit”

–the 50 Cent/Game feud from 2005

“It was bad internally and bad for business. It’s no telling where we could be right now if everybody got along….it was just fuckin’ terrible for Hip Hop”

–His thoughts on Kanye

“I love Kanye’s music. I don’t necessarily agree with a lot of the moves he made with his career but, as far as his music goes, I love it”

–His thought on previous efforts

“I have mixed emotions about it. I look back and can’t help but go, ‘Damn, there’s things I could’ve done better, you know?’ I’ve never listened to any of my records after….once it comes out, it’s just numbers”

If you are Dr. Dre fan like I am, don’t hesitate to buy this issue! Go to your local newsstand and pick it up when it drops on December 14th!

New Transformers 3 Teaser Unveiled Next Week

Of all places, an Italian website called Bad Taste has revealed some new information regarding the TEASER trailer for “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon”. Unfortunately, the description got taken down but from what I was able to translate, the trailer mirrors the teaser of the second movie.

If you recall (or don’t), the teaser for the second movie showed NASA footage of the Mars Rover getting stomped by a Decepticon. According to description for the teaser of TF3, footage of astronauts is shown as they explore the other side of the Moon only to find….MEGAN FOX AS A DECEPTICON!!! AAHHH, RUN!!!!

Okay, so it’s not really clear what the astronauts will see in the teaser, but I guarantee its something robotic! The teaser is set to be shown next week in front of screenings for “Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage Of the Dawn Treader” and then again at screenings of “Tron: Legacy”, so mark those calendars!

Happy Birthday, Amanda Seyfried!

Today is the 25th birthday of everyone’s favorite bug-eyed blonde actress from “Mamma Mia!” and “Jennifer’s Body”, Amanda Seyfried! It’s been quite the big year for Amanda as she had FOUR movies open in theaters in the last twelve months with more still on the way.

With her newest flick “Red Riding Hood” coming soon to theaters, there’s only one thing that matters – she doesn’t make out with Megan Fox in the movie. Oh well, Happy Birthday, Amanda!

Holy Roman Jackass!

Johnny Knoxville and Chris Pontius doing promotion of “Jackass 3D” in the Holy city of Rome. What could go wrong? If Pope Benedict XVI isn’t first in line for the movie, he’s missing out.

Supermodel Pout-Off: Adriana Versus Rosie

One of the few funny moments that occurred during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show broadcast was a brief moment of Adriana Lima doing her impression of Rosie Huntington Whiteley. Since we all know that Rosie has quite the large DSL smackers, it was only appropriate for her fellow Angels to mock them. So can Adriana pull off the trademark Rosie DSL pout?

Who Got The Bigger DSL Pout?

Ashley Greene – Cosmo Girl Of The New Year

It’s not really an award or anything, it just so happens that Ashley is the current cover girl for the January 2011 issue of Cosmo. Again, just like in previous magazine covers that she’s done in the past few months, Ashley teases us with a peak of her boobies…..yet inside the issue, she’s fully clothed! WHY DOES SHE ALWAYS DO THIS?!?

Click on the pic to view the bigger version.

Inside the issue, the article claims that Ashley became an “instant A-lister” after the Twilight movies came out. I beg to differ in that aspect and that’s when I stopped reading the article. If you wanna know what else she talks about, just buy the damned issue yourself!

The “Twin Peaks” Cast Semi-Reunites

The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills held a special event for the show “Psych” a few nights ago. It was also an event to present a somewhat reunited cast of “Twin Peaks”. TP alums Ray Wise (Leland Palmer), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), and Catherine Coulson (Log Lady) were in attendance for the event.

It turns out that four of the main actors from the legendary 90′s show – Sherilynn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, and Dana Ashbrook – make appearances on the newest episode of “Psych” (airing tonight on the USA channel) where they play similar characters from “Twin Peaks”, hence the reason for the cast showing up.

Here’s a big spoiler for ya: IT WAS KILLER BOB!!!

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2010 – REVIEWED

.
Wow. Just Wow. How is it possible that having a lingerie fashion with 34 of the most fine-tuned models in the world….would be so insidiously BORING?? The yearly Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show premiered on CBS last night (which is kinda odd considering that it was always shown in mid-December) and a few things about this show are beginning to signal just how much you need to have a strong personality rather than just a pretty face and a smile.

For one thing, as much as I loathe having to listen to Heidi Klum’s nails-on-a-chalkboard voice, she at least had a bubbly personality and a corny charm that made watching the show fun. Now that Heidi’s gone, it’s not as if the other models in the repertoire are stepping up in that department. Many of the featured models were either so mono-toned or just plain uninterested in engaging the viewers.

.

.
Things were done a bit differently this year compared to previous years. There were NO supermodel intros and a musical opening act was omitted. Instead, there would be segues with model interviews (in between segments) with Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman, Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio. As stacked as those ladies are, they still don’t exude any bit of charm nor any kind of persona that can make you feel like you are part of their world. Heidi was an expert at that and seeing at how these models aren’t exactly firecracker personalities, it really brought the energy of the show to a flatline.

.

.
I don’t get it! I’m a big fan of a lot of the models in the show and most of them either looked too tired or just too busted up. For example, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Candice Swanepoel looked SO tired out of their minds each time they were on the runway. It’s as if they had to slurp down giant cups of Espresso just to keep themselves from falling asleep on the runway!

And why did Chanel Iman get so much face-time than any other model in the roster? Dear god, she’s barely old enough to drink and yet she’s highlighted as a superstar. How about some screentime for Lily Donaldson? Or maybe Lindsay Ellingson? Or possibly Isabeli Fontana? A mix-up of interview for these ladies woulda been nice!

.

.
Energy is what makes the VS show work and I didn’t feel a single ounce of it for the entire hour. Most of the songs used were mostly down-tempo tracks with a few mash-ups (Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” mashed up with LL Cool J’s “Momma Said Knock You Out”) and, for the most part, it didn’t seem to make the show go any faster.

But, on the positive side, the outfits did show off a lot of skin and a lot of curves. I gotta give credit to VS for coming up with such sexy outfits (although most of the wings were a bit excessive), so I guess that’s all that matters to them.

.

.
I’m at a crossroads. I thought this year’s show was BETTER than last year’s unnecessarily drama-filled debacle…..yet I just couldn’t find myself to like it, either. This is the one where I can honestly say that it would’ve made it better if Heidi Klum hosted it (even if she doesn’t walk for them). Katy Perry and Akon did serviceable jobs on their part but it didn’t make the show any better. Hopefully, next year’s show won’t have any missing models (Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes) and they stop trying to appeal to a younger crowd. Bigger doesn’t always mean better.

Just do a simple fashion show, Victoria’s Secret, that’s all I ask!

Eliza Dushku Announces Next TV Failure

No less than a year after “Dollhouse” got the axe after two horrendous seasons on FOX, TV Guide has announced that Eliza has landed ANOTHER TV series in the works for TNT where she plays a…wait for it….COP in the Pacific Northwest!!! Oh, sweet Jesus, someone stop her!

I’m gonna be honest and just say it: Eliza Dushku just doesn’t belong on TV. Seriously! How many goddamn times does she need to do a TV show that just can’t “find an audience” before she finally figures out that nobody buys her in the roles she does!

Let’s make it clear: she’s good at doing one thing onscreen – being a heinous bitch. Kevin Smith knew it and the “Bring It On” people knew it, so why does this woman keep getting TV projects that cast her against type?!? STOP IT, ELIZA!

.
UPDATE 12/07/2010: As of yesterday, Eliza has announced that after only ONE week of filming, she is quitting the show! Yes, now that is the best decision she’s made so far.

Date Night in Paris with Brad & Angie

Brad and Angelina are currently in Paris to promote “Megamind” and both were seen having a date night at the Champs Elysee earlier tonight.

How is humanly it possible that Angelina can juggle 16 kids, direct a movie in war-torn Bosnia (under extreme protest), and start promotion for her new flick “The Tourist”…..and STILL look as incredibly and stunningly gorgeous as she does in the photo above? I will never ever know.

Victoria’s Secret Hot Chocolate

Yup, you read that correctly. If you were in the SoHo District in New York earlier this morning, you probably saw supermodels Erin Heatherton and Chanel Iman inside a Victoria’s Secret Ice Cream truck giving out free cups of hot chocolate to local passer-bys.

Or maybe you didn’t.

Anne Hathaway & James Franco to Host 83rd Oscars (?)

The peoples over at Deadline.com are claiming that possible Oscar contenders, Anne Hathaway and James Franco, are being touted as the possible hosts for next year’s Academy Awards.

If it turns out to be true, then it looks like AMPAS is going for a younger audience. Here’s the thing: all this talk about these two all seems to be nothing but hearsay. One guys tells one guy one thing….and they tell two friends….and they tell their friends….and so on and so on and so on.

So far, nothing from AMPAS has been confirmed so, until the announcement is made, take this news with a grain of salt.

Harry Potter & Hermione Get Freaky

I haven’t seen a full Harry Potter movie since the very first one back in 2001. Since then, I’ve purposely ignored the other six flicks, but for the last week and a half, I’ve been hearing lots of talk (even from the stars themselves) about a hot lesbian make-out scene with Harry and Hermione in the new “Deathly Hallows Part 1″ flick.

I wasn’t aware that these two were freaky-deaky but I guess since its the last movie of the franchise….why the Hell not, right?

A couple of super crappy cellphone pics were snapped of the make-out scene and posted on the Internets. Apparently, it looks like there’s a Peyote-induced drug haze that occurs where Harry and Hermione get naked and start sloshing tongues. Activate that Nimbus 3000, I say!
