The think that’s kinda funny is that when you pop open the HQ image, you can tell that Miley Cyrus is sitting in the passenger seat looking completely uninterested in the killer ride & more interested in her smartphone (probably Tweeting). Way to not take shit for granted, right? Besides that, I think it’s safe to assume that Liam Hemsworth is finally taking a crack at spending some of his “Hunger Games” cash. Good for him! That bastard!

First of all, any of you car buffs know the make & model, by chance?
After earning his roughly $30-35 million over a couple years on “American Idol,” I wouldn’t be surprised if Steven Tyler owns that ride & just lets his friends drive him around. The 64-year-old Aerosmith frontman says he wants to dedicated the next few years of his life to his longtime band. Exactly how long can this dude keep touring & having sex with groupies, anyway?!
Trouble With The Curve is the upcoming film starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Lillard, and John Goodman. Basically Clint Eastwood plays a baseball scout and Amy Adams his daughter. Look for it in theaters on September 21st. For more info, visit the Trouble With The Curve official website.
An aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout named Gus Lobel (Eastwood) is given one last assignment to prove his worth to the organization, who sees him as unable to adapt to changes in the business. His boss and friend Pete (Goodman), who does not want to see him let go, asks Gus’s daughter Mickey (Adams) to join him on the trip to make sure he’s ok, against Gus’s wishes. Together they scout a top new prospect in North Carolina, where Mickey begins to take an active role in her father’s work to make up for his failing vision, which he has hidden from his bosses. Along the way Gus reconnects with Johnny (Timberlake), a rival team’s scout who has a friendly history with Gus, as Gus was the man who scouted him when he was a baseball player, and who also takes an interest in Mickey.

Holy crap, Batman: is Cameron Diaz in a good? A good Coen Brothers movie? Looks like it, from the new trailer of Gambit, the upcoming remake of the 1966 Michael Caine-Shirley MacLaine classic that stars Diaz alongside Oscar winner Colin Firth. Directed by Michael Hoffman, the film co-stars Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci, and Cloris Leachman. The Coen brothers, incidentally, only wrote the script this time.
I can’t figure out if Diaz’s accent is charming or grating? Is it possible to be both? Then again, what was Brad Pitt in Inglorious Basterds? Let us know what you think.
Cop movies are a tough genre to execute, not only in the fully macho sense of the word, but in the manner that they can be either too tedious or too preachy as they depict lives affected (and frequently ruined) by law breaking, violence, and a lust for power. (Check out the new Dredd for a superficial but foreboding spin on what it means to be law enforcement, judge, jury, and executioner). It is with a deep sense of relief, then, that I can pronounce End of Watch as one of the best cop movies to have emerged from the Hollywood stables in a long, long time. This is a movie that is self-aware but never overly conscious of what it is or where it is going.
The plot details the daily battles and relationship of two California officers, Zavala (Michael Pena) and Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal), whose daily beat is to police a region of Southern California with a largley immigrant Latino population which lives under the shadow of Mexican drug cartels. (Note to Hollywood writers: we get it – Mexican drug cartels are a danger, but please give the Latinos something else to be bothered by. The “Papers Please” law in Arizona is much more sinister). The story follows a relatively familiar route of buddy-and-cop movies with subplots that involve Zavala’s wife (Natalie Martinez) and Taylor’s girlfriend (Anna Kendrick). But mostly, the fearless twosome spend their days playing detective as they try to piece together who (or what) is behind the many crimes in their district.
To be sure, this is a movie, and as such there are far too many gun duels and car chases for one pair of cops to possibly encounter, but we suspend disbelief because the movie works so well at depicting not only the relationship between Zavala and Taylor, but how being a police officer affects every other facet and relationship of an officer’s life. They live and breathe the slow murmur of waiting violence and disruption, only to find their lives upended and destroyed by the communities that they live to protect. It’s a thankless and difficult job, and few can imagine why anyone would want to make their livelihood this way.
The performances are excellent, especially Michale Pena as Zavala, who plays his part with the right mixture of muscle and vulnerability. Gyllenhaal is mercifully restrained in his role, toning down his typical ‘boy-in-a-man’s-body’ act to give a truly nuanced and layered performance. Both of their portrayals really make this movie soar.
Joanna Krupa looked smokin’ as she exited BOA Steakhouse last night after dining with lucky bastard fiance Romain Zago. Joanna now appears on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami which you can see on Thursday at 9pm. These shots of the lovely Joanna fail to compare her less-clothed recent appearances in a bikini; any chance we could get her to come wash our car…in a bikini? We’re going to make an assumption that Romain did some explorations on Joanna’s sexy bod to close the night. DDDAAAAAMMMMMMNNNNN YYYYOOOOOOOUUU ROOOOOMMMMMAAAAIINNNN ZZAAAAAAAAGGOOOOOO!!!
