Walking through the Arndale a few afternoons back i was stopped in my tracks by the full window posters of the new Gstar campaign featuring Vincent Gallo. Smouldering in dark denim against hard stone surfaces shot timelessly in black and white, i felt like a fool for having not thought about him since…when was the last time i swooned over The Gallo? How, better yet why the hell did i forget about him?
Where does he find the time ? Riz MC with a twisted love song.
I love me an action movie, Jason Statham & Ben Foster so hallelujah that today The Mechanic is released! Funnily i havent seen it yet (im usually two steps ahead me hearties) however it has to be awesome regardless of the run of the mill trailer (above). Statham has paid his dues in this genre not one film has disappointed action wise though script, storyline and casting have never all hit as hard as he can however The Mechanic (terrible name) has to be his first all rounder, right? Ben Foster who is not known for appearing in shitty movies and Donald Sutherland who despite Virus is still a bad man make up a pretty strong cast! Looking forward to my first cinema visit in a while to check this out over the weekend…anyone with me, i have no shame going alone!
Words cannot describe how much i miss Michael Pitt on my small screen after steamrolling through Boardwalk Empire this week, cannot recommend enough. Now please Mr Walburg/Scorsese can you get the second season running so Jimmy can hurry back now ya here Ugh i never wanted someone elses feet so much…..i guess to pass the time ill just have to watch everything he’s ever done since Hedwig…happily bedridden
San Franciso Mueseum of Modern Art, or SFMOMA are funny, they tweeted this yesterday for the Home Alone stars birthday!!
Not a good week for old skool american actors. First Gary Coleman & then Dennis Hopper . Two legends with very different hollywood stories one leaves behind an epic filmography the other an epic catchphrase but both to me are equally unforgettable. Hope their resting in peace up in Hollywood heaven!
Hmmmmmm female prostitution, obviously a Hollywood worthy storyline (Pretty Woman, hello!) however i dont think this is gonna have quite the same impact….Danny Dyer switches it up again to play a west end uber pimp (god the reach of this mans talent is unbelievable) in the imaginatively entitled PIMP!
Wow has it really been that long since my last post? The time has just flown by, it must be the company i’ve been keeping…. (more…)
Sat at christmas dinner last night my primary school friends husband informed me about Joaquin Phoenix and his apparent bout of craziness last year when he announced his retirement from acting to pursue a rapping career. Have i really been that disconnected for a whole 12 months that i couldn’t have heard that the former Leaf Phoenix (did we ever get a reason why he changed his name?) had gone a little bit loco?
