When you are given the assignment of interviewing Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, honestly, it’s not a tough assignment. The actors play male strippers and wear very little clothing in this often dark portrayal of a lifestyle that may seem cheesy onstage, but it is fraught with its own demons. You can tell the guys had a lot of fun on set and during their requisite “Stripper Camp” before filming began, because Tatum swears that the moves from Magic Mike are responsible for McConaughey’s recent nuptials.
Take a look at the iVillage interview here:
Magic Mike opens in theatres today, June 29th, nationwide.

Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And, gave her mother 40 whacks.
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.
And, Abraham Lincoln? What did he do when he picked up a silver-laden hatchet? Well, open a can of good old fashioned whoop @$$ and annihilate a bunch of vampires while ending slavery and The Civil War, all at the same time. Or, at least that is what the new film Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, directed by Timur Bekmambetov and based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, would have you believe.
A few episodes into the series, all of you fellow Falling Skies fans are nearly caught up with me in enjoying this exciting season. Those of you who know me know I work very closely with the Falling Skies cast, and it was a pleasure and a blast to interview my friend (online and off), Mr. Connor Jessup.

Me Tarzan, you gay. You choose your battles; you pick your fights.
It should be no surprise to anyone (As they hyped the heck out of it!) that Northstar was joining the ranks of long-suffering heterosexuals by marrying his boyfriend, Kyle.
Should Marvel be praised for championing gay rights or condemned for jumping on the big, gay bandwagon following Obama's day late, dollar short, half-@$$ed endorsement of same sex marriage? Mind you, I'm not complaining; any furthering of gay rights is good in my book. You choose your battles.

When I attended the D23 conference last August, the trailer for Disney•Pixar's Brave struck me as a strong departure from their typical animated fare. We don't have a male lead or a helpless princess or a film with a built-in merchandising empire. Instead, we have a strong, stubborn, independent, and fierce gal by the name of Merida. She wants to live life on her own terms, but she is going to learn the hard way how to get there. It is a gorgeous film, but I am not sure it is for everyone. Here are my three reasons to see Brave:
