Seems like the NBA season arrived out of nowhere. Maybe it’s just me as a Dallas fan, after not acquiring Deron Williams during the off season mixed with the Dirk injury, there really wasn’t anything to look forward this seasons. Not the case for the Miami Heat, who completed their championship season last night by raising their new banner and bringing out some shiny new rings. LeBron gets his ring and the “king with no ring” jokes can officially be buried and put to rest. Last night featured a nice opening slate of games for the league, leaving more headlines for everyone to talk about.
Things officially got going outside of the national spotlight between the Cavaliers and Wizards, two teams known for their young and talented players. Everyone knows these two teams won’t be talked about much when the postseason comes around but they played excellent basketball, particularly the Cavs. Cleveland’s two starting guards (Irving and Waiters) look like they have a great future but as great as they were, this game belonged to Anderson Varaajao. The Brazilian big man notched the biggest rebounding game of his career on his way to a near triple-double (9 pts, 23 reb, 9 ast) and led the Cavaliers to a 94-84 victory over the Wizards. The Wizards started off slow on offense, clearly missing their best player John Wall due to injury. Washington was able to cut the deficit in the 4th but down the stretch the Cavs looked to Irving (game high 29 pts) for the plays to seal the deal and take home the victory.
Down in South Beach, the Miami Heat continued their postseason success against the Boston Celtics in a heated game. Dwyane Wade led the scoring for the Heat (29 points) and they were able to show balance on offense and defense to take the victory over Boston 120-107. Things got chippy at the end of the game after the Celtics failed to rally and Rajon Rondo (20 pts, 7 reb, 13 ast) committed a flagrant foul on Wade, causing players from both teams to separate the two (pictured above) but it was nothing serious. Just two teams that aren’t particularly fond of each other playing a physical sport. Speaking of no love, i’m sure by now everyone else has seen Kevin Garnett give Ray Allen the cold shoulder when he approached the Celtics bench. More drama for a heated rivalry. LeBron James kept his momentum from last season but he did have to leave a couple of times during the second half due to cramping, nothing that Heat fans have the worry about.
Of course I saved the best for last just for Bryan. Just kidding, this game actually was the last to be played and caused the most noise around the league after it ended. In case you didn’t stay up for this one, a Dirk-less Mavericks (say that with a straight face) went into LA last night and ran around the new look “penciled in as the West champs” Lakers and defeated the star-studded team 99-91. The Mavs, looking very different themselves, were led by Nick Collison (17 pts, 2 reb, 4 ast) but as evident with his stat line, it took a complete team effort by this depleted Dallas team. Six different Mavs players scored in double figures and they simply looked like they wanted it more, playing with much more urgency than the Lakers. Expectations are very high for this Laker team but if they’re going to reach the title game like most expect them to, they’re going to have to use Steve Nash (only 4 assists) much more effectively. Kobe and Gasol were able to get their points (combining for 45) but that isn’t going to matter if the team shoots 38% from the charity stripe.
The Saturdays (from left to right: Vanessa White, Rochelle Wiseman, Una Healy, Mollie King) minus Frankie Sanford, who was back in England for her grandfather’s funeral, performed live at The Roxy in Los Angeles as they ramp up for their E! reality series. Their show titled Chasing The Saturdays follows the group as they work on their next studio album which will be their first US release after already succeding the UK having released 13 singles, four albums, and done three tours. We can go on and on but really we’re sure you just want to get to the poll and leave those 2-3 comments we now average per post. So we’ll end this post with Chasing The Saturdays premieres on January 20th on E!.
“The projects position Sparks as the rare novelist to translate success as a best-selling author into a broad development slate that includes both book adaptations and original material.”[THR]
The Notebook? Please. The Vow? Hiss. The Lucky One? Spit. Nights In Rodanthe? GROAN.
Okay, so Nicholas Sparks’s brand of tearjerk-y sentimental and sappy love stories are not my cup of tea (that’s putting it mildly). But clearly audiences the world over disagree, and have helped make his movies (always about a wayward female needing to be saved by an equally wayward male in Burberry sweaters) successes at the box office. Which is why The World’s Worst Writer has struck a deal to write and develop three separate television series for TNT, ABC, and (of course) Lifetime.
The three shows are being pitched as a modern retelling of the Romeo and Juliet love saga, a post-Civil War family drama, and the televised version of Sparks’s novel A Bend in the Road. Check out the article for more details on the upcoming romantic dramas.

If she’s a woman, then what the fuck are Charlize Theron & Halle Berry? Grandmas?
I understand that Selena Gomez just hit 20 this past summer, but we can all agree on the fact that she doesn’t look a day older than 11, in which case this post just took a sudden turn for Creepy Bastardville.
Here’s one of the reasons Selena Gomez qualifies as a women of the year: “She’s giving back to people who need help, because of her own life experience…She’s the exception to so many rules.” Who said that? 22-year-old Taylor Swift!! I think it’s safe to assume that judging by Taylor’s answer, it sounds like somebody was caught off guard & proceeded to simply pull something—anything—out of her ass.
Sean Penn movies tend to fall into two categories: they are either major events (Mystic River, Tree of Life, Milk) or outsize disappointments (All the Kings Men, It’s All About Love). His latest outing on celluloid manages to tamp these expectation, which is likely both a good and bad thing. Good, because no one will blame him for the failure of another movie despite being (arguably) the best actor of his generation, and bad because this is actually one of his more novel efforts that matches the audacity of his performance. The premise alone should be enough evidence of this: a washed-up hasbeen goth rocker named Cheyenne (Penn) can’t seem to shed his old identity. He looks and sounds like an amalgam between Kiss and Marlyn Manson, which explains his brief popularity.
He comes to find out that his deceased father had a mission in life he knew nothing about: avenging his torture at the hands of the Third Reich during World War II. Cheyenne thus becomes obsessed with seeing his father’s aims realized, and a movie that was conceived as an esoteric character study becomes a rambunctious road trip movie into the American West. How it ends ultimately doesn’t matter as much as the fact that Cheyenne finally seems, at age 50, to come into his own. You’ll be shocked at how little you care about whether or not he is able to avenge his father’s torture in the end. Retribution is a many de-spelndored thing.
Penn is in full form here, which will rub some the wrong way because everything about the character and the movie lends itself to the over-the-top tendency. Penn is often accused of overacting, and in this movie his critics will have plenty to complain about. He seems, at times, to be channeling the ghost of Bea Arthur. Frances McDormand, Judd Hirsch, and Harry Dean Stanton all lend ample support in their smaller parts, though this movie rests firmly on Penn’s shoulders. It’s at times an overwrought ride, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. One of the more unique and rewarding experiences at cinemas this season.
Yeah, we’re back at it again with another Skyfall premiere. This time Berenice Marlohe and the cast (minus Naomie Harris) walked the red carpet at the Berlin premiere held at Potsdamer Platz square. Anyways, we’re gonna just copy and paste the vitals once again since every Skyfall post is going to be to plug the film opening in US theaters on November 9th. For more info, visit the Skyfall official website.
When an operation in Istanbul ends in disaster, James Bond is missing and presumed to be dead, and the identities of every active undercover MI6 agent are leaked onto the internet. In the aftermath, questions are raised over M’s ability to run the Secret Service, and she becomes the subject of a government review over her handling of the situation. When the service itself is attacked, Bond’s sudden reappearance gives M the pretext she needs to seek out Raoul Silva, a dangerous villain claiming a personal connection to both of them – but as he follows a trail from London to the South China Sea, Bond soon finds his loyalty to M challenged over secrets from her past.

The beautiful Ashley Greene spiced-up the GQ’s December issue (UK edition) in hopes to promote the final installment of the “Twilight” series (thank God).
Just like all the other “Twilight” actors, Ashley needs to get her shit together & really take her career seriously, so that means no more posing nude for SoBe or choosing box-office bombs like “LOL” or the horror flick “The Apparition,” which released back in August. I think it’s safe to say that Ash has to first ditch the people who are advising her on which projects to take on b/c obviously, aside from “Twilight,” they’ve done an absolutely atrocious job. All I gotta say is, thank God for all the “Twilight” bucks, as well as the residual payments from TV & DVD sales that slowly trickle into Ash’s various bank accounts, b/c all the money definitely buys her a little time while she regains her footing & attempts to chose quality projects a little more wisely.
