Scott Frank delivers us the next Liam Neeson action film and he does a good job at it. Liam Neeson stars as a troubled ex-NYPD cop turned investigator Matt Scudder who has many troubles in this life including addiction and a plethora of mistakes. But being Liam Neeson, he’s a super-agent and can track people from around the world by a mere phone call, and kill them! Kenny Kristo (Dan Stevens) is a heroin trafficker who gives “gifts” to Scudder in exchange for favors and requests to hire Scudder to locate the people who brutally killed his wife even though he paid them. He is hesitant but takes the case and the twisted road begins. The killers are heartless and kill and butcher the victims very brutally and Scudder cannot figure out the connection and motive for the victims. So he follows intricate clues to ultimately figure out the who-what-when-where-why? aspect of the case before he does what Liam Neeson does best! The editing in the film allows for drops into Scudders life that hint at who he is and why he left the department and all in all makes for a good film. I gave this a whopping 4 out of 5.
Ben Affleck was kicked out of a casino for counting cards but swears he doesn’t have a gambling problem..
What an awfully adorable liar..
Ben did admit to counting cards though and that’s good enough for us:
That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack. I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos.
He’s as smart as he is gorgeous..
I had always liked blackjack. I don’t play any other games of chance. I don’t bet on football games, and I don’t gamble at all, really, outside of that. But I knew with blackjack that there’s a way you can improve your odds. And so I started trying to learn. And then I just got to a point in my life where I’m like, ‘If I’m going to do something, I’m going to try and do it really well.’ It was sort of presented like I did something illegal. You know what I mean?
Ben feels about gambling the way we feel about shoes..
Although Ben wasn’t exactly kicked out if the casino:
No, I wish! That would be awesome. ‘Get him outta here! He’s a magician!’ Unfortunately, they just came up and said, ‘We can’t let you play blackjack. But we have other table games! We have Chinese poker!
Kim Kardashian could be the reason Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey ended their six year marriage..
Apparently Mariah was terribly jealous of Kim and how highly Nick would speak of her a source told Dish Nashion:
Mariah will never admit it, but she’s jealous of Kim because Nick has always raved that she was his best lover and she had the best body of any woman he’s ever been with.
Mariah didn’t like that Nick would talk about Kim in public and asked that he stop mentioning Kim’s name in interviews but Nick didn’t obey:
After Nick’s confession, Mariah turned on him. She warned Nick never to bring up Kim’s name in public again. But Nick couldn’t leave well enough alone.
Nick has every right to talk to anyone he wants to. We would think less of him if Mariah could control who he kept in his life.
Nick made a bad situation worse. He and Mariah were fighting about other issues, and then Nick reached out to Kim to warn her that Mariah was on a rampage and that she might call to confront Kim.
If Mariah was confident enough in herself then Kim would not matter.. Clearly the only reason Mariah doesn’t like Kim is because she’s threatened by her.
Karrueche Tran could be pregnant with Chris Brown’s baby..
We won’t believe any news regarding Chris and Karr for the next few as Chris’s album is dropping and they need the publicity..
But, we’ll humor them..
Apparently, Karr isn’t exactly pregnant but she wants to be..However, there has to be a few changes before the baby arrives and one of those changes is Rihanna, a source tells MediaTakeOut:
She’s very confused right now, because she loves Chris and Chris wants a baby . . . but Karrueche wants more than just a child — she wants a real commitment. No more Rihanna jumpoff sessions, no more strippers, just the two of them.
We guarantee you, the minute Chris is ready to have a baby Karr will get pregnant..
Call us old fashioned but whatever happened to waiting until you’re married to have a baby..
Karr seems like the type that would get pregnant just to trap Chris, and we just can’t stand girls like that..We can’t imagine bringing an innocent soul into this world just to keep a man, that’s so desperate and classless.
We hope these two are more committed to one another before bringing and innocent life into the world because otherwise it would be a selfish thing to do..
Adrian Peterson is under a lot of scrutiny for disciplining his four-year-old son with a tree branch, causing some visible cuts and bruises and now he’s getting support from quite the unlikely source, Reggie Bush.
Reggie was on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show and insisted that Adrian should be allowed to play football despite the pending child abuse charges:
I was punished the same way. And I know a lot of my friends and a lot of the guys I played with, they were punished the same way, too.
Reggie said he would punish his daughter, Briseis if need be:
I have a 1-year-old daughter, and I discipline her. I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.
And when asked if he’d use a switch on his little angel he replied:
I would possibly consider it, depending on what she did.
Reggie later retracted, saying:
No, I didn’t say a branch or a stick. I said spanking. Spanking is different than a branch or a stick.
We agree with Reggie. It’s quite appropriate to spank a child and hopefully that’s all he’ll do when Briseis, one of the most adorable little babies we’ve ever seen, is out of line. We can just die, she’s so cute!
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have welcomed a sweet baby girl and we’re excited but not really excited because we still love Rachel McAdams..
Although we don’t have a lot of details regarding the birth, we can tell you it took place in Los Angeles..
We’re not surprised regarding the lack of information available to us since Eva was actually able to hide her pregnancy from us and the rest of the world until she was seven months along.. Seriously, how does one hide a pregnancy for seven months?
Ok Magazine! first broke the news about the well hidden pregnancy:
She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her.
Of course sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true.. Sharing any experience with Ryan is a dream come true.
Eva and Ryan are both super private, therefore, it might be a while before we hear anything about the new baby or see pictures of what we can assume is one of the most beautiful baby’s to ever grace this earth.. So for now just take what you get and like it our darlings.
The gorgeous couple started dating back in September 2011.
Congratulations to the them!
Adrian Peterson faces child abuse charges in Texas after leaving visible bruises on his little ones body, and he claims it was his way of disciplining the kid.
You want to punish your kid Adrian, have him watch one of your games.
Adrian released a statement apologizing for the insensitive way he went about teaching his little one a lesson:
My attorney has asked me not to discuss the facts of my pending case. I hope you can respect that request and help me honor it. I very much want the public to hear from me but I understand that it is not appropriate to talk about the facts in detail at this time. Nevertheless, I want everyone to understand how sorry I feel about the hurt I have brought to my child.
I never wanted to be a distraction to the Vikings organization, the Minnesota community or to my teammates. I never imagined being in a position where the world is judging my parenting skills or calling me a child abuser because of the discipline I administered to my son.
I voluntarily appeared before the grand jury several weeks ago to answer any and all questions they had. Before my grand jury appearance, I was interviewed by two different police agencies without an attorney. In each of these interviews I have said the same thing, and that is that I never ever intended to harm my son. I will say the same thing once I have my day in court.
I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen. I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. I also understand after meeting with a psychologist that there are other alternative ways of disciplining a child that may be more appropriate.
I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward. But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives. I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. I love my son and I will continue to become a better parent and learn from any mistakes I ever make.
I am not a perfect son. I am not a perfect husband. I am not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser. I am someone that disciplined his child and did not intend to cause him any injury. No one can understand the hurt that I feel for my son and for the harm I caused him. My goal is always to teach my son right from wrong and that’s what I tried to do that day.
I accept the fact that people feel very strongly about this issue and what they think about my conduct. Regardless of what others think, however, I love my son very much and I will continue to try to become a better father and person.
Hopefully Adrian has learned his lesson and finds other ways to discipline his little one. So heartbreaking to see a child in such a situation.
Lamar Odom seems to want Khloe back and we’re..Whatever about it. J.K. we’re so excited.
Lamar and Khloe belong together, they have this cute little thing going and we totally understand cute little things, hence, we understand this relationship.
Lamar is ready to be a great husband to Khloe, according to a Hollywood Life source:
Real love always wins in the end. He knew that wasn’t going to last. French was there so she could get her mind off Lamar. We all know that. He did his job, played the role he was supposed to play, and now he’s gone. Just like that!
Now that Frenchie is gone there can very well be a reunion as Lamar and Khloe’s five year anniversary is approaching rather quickly..
It was clear that neither Khloe or Lamar were over one another and it really seemed quite inevitable that these two would be reunited again. In order for two people to move on from one another, truly move on, there needs to be closure, that’s something Lamar and Khloe never got.
Perhaps for some, there will never be closure because their connection is too strong to ever break and they will of course be together again..
Beyonce could be pregnant or nah..
While performing “Beach is Better” at their “On the Run” Paris concert September 12 Jay Z could have given things away or maybe he didn’t.
You might be thinking..
Well neither do we..
We don’t believe anything that comes out of their mouths anymore because while they’ve been on tour they’ve been purposely playing with our emotions by changing around lyrics to make it seem as though they’re headed for divorce. But this two master manipulators are so not headed for divorce..We almost had a breakdown over this shit but do Jay and Bey care? Of course not.
So now Jay goes ahead and changes around the lyrics to “Beach is Better” to hint at a pregnancy. We just can’t anymore.
The original lyrics to the song are..
Can’t take this money with you
Burn this sh*t up like I’m richer
If the oven’s on
According to MediaTakeOut, Jay changed the last verse to “Cause she pregnant with another one.”
Just in case she is pregnant, we’ve started preparing ourselves..How would we feel about a second baby? Would this new bundle steal our hearts from our little mean muggin Blue? Do we want a boy or a girl? Are Jay Z’s lips really bigger than Solange’s career?..
These are serious questions..
Charles Martin Smith returns to deliver us the anticipated sequel to “Dolphin Tale” starring Morgan Freeman as Dr. Cameron McCarthy. The majority of the main cast has returned for this sequel. Although it doesn’t feel like what should have naturally occurred as a sequel, I felt like they created a problem to make a movie out of. Nonetheless, the film will surely be a hit with families and small children as they return to see the true story of a bottle nose dolphin born without a tail named Winter who resides at Florida’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter received a prosthetic tail created by Dr. McCarthy and now that her partner Panama died, she becomes lethargic and depressed. Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Conick Jr.) and his daughter Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) are tasked to find a mate for Winter or lose their star attraction! The film presents with such innocents and sympathy that any child will surely enjoy it. It was made well and kept me steadfast and watching and with that I gave it a 4.0 out of 5!
