Romney Wants Win ‘Any Which Way He Can’

posted by mattaug

Clint Eastwood is looking for hope and change when it comes to the 2012 presidential race. He apparently hopes Mitt Romney can change the course of a still-struggling economy that posted decent jobs growth this past month but is still […]

‘Bridesmaids’ … Women Behaving Badly

posted by mattaug

No, I didn’t see the movie Bridesmaids and something tells me I didn’t have to see it in order to know what it was about: Women behaving badly … or as badly as their male counterparts in so many movies, […]

Whitney Houston Deserved Flags Honor

posted by mattaug

Let’s be honest here, OK? New Jersey deciding to fly its flags at half-staff for the death of Whitney Houston was a nice honor. The woman was a music superstar and it’s important some people take pride in her and […]

Thin-Skinned Jets Should Welcome ‘Broadway Joe’ Back

posted by mattaug

Ugh … no not my name … but I was SO wrong about Joe Namath for so many years. I would look at his sub-par statistics and think the guy MUST have been overrated. I know I wrote it already, […]

Give Jim Caviezel Tickets … To Any Game

posted by mattaug

I usually think it’s schlocky and corny when they show Hollywood stars at events and games. I think that ticket should have gone to someone who REALLY wants to be there, not just someone a network can point out and […]

Hey, Alec Baldwin … Grow The Heck Up!

posted by mattaug

Just saw a report that Alec Baldwin was tossed off a plane for refusing to stop playing a game on his cell phone. It’s just another instance of him refusing to play by the rules and behave himself. It’s gotten […]

When Will Lindsay Lohan Learn?

posted by mattaug

She was a super-cute kid actress who turned into a beautiful woman … unfortunately not on the inside. Lindsay Lohan was taken from an L.A. courtroom in handcuffs Wednesday and had bail set at $100,000 after  her probation was revoked […]

Nice To See ‘G’, ‘PG’ Movies

posted by mattaug

I know, I know … I come off as some kind of goody two-shoes sometimes. I just don’t know what’s so great about all those movies where people are getting drunk, throwing up, acting obnoxiously and wasting their time and […]

What Would We Do Without Universal HD Channel?

posted by mattaug

What would we do without Universal HD channel? That is the question I pondered Thursday afternoon when I checked out its schedule for the evening. First there was Finding John Christmas and A Town Without Christmas, followed by episodes of […]

Seeing ‘Starz’ … In A Good Way

posted by mattaug

I was ticked when AT&T U-Verse recently removed ESPN3D from its programming block. Oh … I was ticked and still am, in fact. That channel was the main reason I spent a few hundred more bucks to get a 3DTV, […]

Emilio Estevez: The Anti-Charlie Sheen

posted by mattaug

The more I have heard from Charlie Sheen over the last year, the more I like his brother Emilio Estevez. It’s not nice and certainly not Christian to make fun of Charlie Sheen’s well-documented troubles so I won’t. Instead, it’s […]

Palin Documentary The Undefeated Ready For TV

posted by mattaug

I have to admit, the opposite of what I thought would happen with Sarah Palin’s documentary took place. I thought The Undefeated would be critically panned but be a cult hit among Evangelical Christians and/or conservative Republicans. Instead, apparently the […]

Alexandra Pelosi: Mostly Fair Documentary Filmmaker

posted by mattaug

Sometimes parents can learn a thing or two from their children. Such is the case with documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi. Her mother, in case you don’t know from the last name is Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader of the U.S. House […]

Should Larry Crowne Have Been Made-For-TV Movie?

posted by mattaug

Cute. sweet and funny. Judging by the trailer and reviews for Larry Crowne, that appears to be the best way to describe the new movie release. Despite solid performances by Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, however, is that enough to […]

Borg-McEnroe Rivalry Revisited In Stellar HBO Documentary

posted by mattaug

Anything that can break through John McEnroe and show the heart of the man through all the complicated layers deserves credit. HBO Documentaries does just that with Fire and Ice, a film about McEnroe’s rivalry with Bjorn Borg during a […]

Tracy Morgan “Rocked” By Own Comments About Gays

posted by mattaug

Tracy Morgan is a very talented comedian and actor who addresses topics head-on with a joke. His recent diatribe about gays and what he would do to his own son if he found out he was homosexual was WAY over […]

Credit Kutcher’s Courage In Speaking Up For Sarah Palin

posted by mattaug

There is enough dislike for Sarah Palin on either side of the political spectrum that she will probably never be president. The attacks on the former Alaska governor and FOX News contributor are truly beyond the pale, however. They should […]

Jim Dandy: He Can ‘Carrey’ Rare PG Flick

posted by mattaug

Jim Carrey is one of the few people in the world that can make you laugh without doing much of anything. That was true Thursday on The Today Show when Carrey promoted his new film Mr. Poppers Penguins. He mugged […]

Abe Vigoda … The Ultimate Good Sport

posted by mattaug

Talk about aging gracefully and with a sense of humor. No one epitomizes that better than the legendary movie and TV actor Abe Vigoda. Vigoda is famous for his role as Sal Tessio in The Godfather, but also starred on […]

Good Daughter: Mira Sorvino keeps eye on dad Paul’s diabetes

posted by mattaug

They may be movie stars, but the father and daughter tandem of Paul and Mira Sorvino are people too. Mira, in fact, is a bit of a doting daughter these days due to her dad’s diabetes. The pair were on […]

Parks & Rec’s Rob Lowe: not just a pretty boy

posted by mattaug

I am comfortable enough with myself on enough levels to write this: Rob Lowe is a handsome man. That gift from God aside, Lowe also happens to be a heckuva actor with film titles like The Outsiders, Wayne’s World, St. […]

3D or not 3D … That Is The Question

posted by mattaug

The introduction of high-definition television a few years back was literally an eye-opener. HDTV, as it is more often referred, makes images on the screen far clearer and brighter than the “old” standard definition television. The even more recent addition […]
