Aug 8th 2010 7:46AM Lpstarchaser, I highly suggest you read the books if you haven't already done so. Excellent reads! Well, at least the first two, as I have yet to start the third in the series, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. And if you haven't seen the Swedish imports starring the mesmerizing Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, you don't know what you're missing.
Aug 8th 2010 6:26AM Emily Browning appears to have "the look" necessary to pull off the character of Lisbeth Salander. Of course, if Noomi Rapace, who can speak English, wanted the role again, that would be a no-brainer; but give that Ms. Rapace says "she's done" with playing Lisbeth, then I vote for Ms. Browning. Ellen Page, though a fine actress, isn't gritty enough; and the same goes for Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart. And forget Evan Rachel Wood, too: she's "dark" enough, but not vulnerable enough. Rooney Mara and Mia W. are my second and third choices; but if Noomi Rapace ever changes her mind...well, when there's a choice that includes Ms. Rapace she is THE ONLY choice.
May 2nd 2010 9:47AM Unfair article. The knock on Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has always been three fold: 1) that he's too defensive minded and only punches enough to win; and 2) that he never fights legitimate welterweights; 3) and that he has never been hurt and had to come back from adversity to win a fight. Well, last night Mayweather erased all of those negative marks against him, by attacking more and coming back from being seriously hurt in the second round to truly dominate Shane Mosley from Round 3 until the final bell. I too have been one of Floyd's critics, but no more. To me, Floyd Mayweather has now proven himself to be a true fighter and not just one phenomenal boxer. Good job, Floyd.
Apr 12th 2010 10:34PM Another vapid youngster who, first and foremost, should be trained to keep her clueless trap shut. Right now Emma Roberts only real claim to fame is she's the daughter of Eric Roberts and the niece of Julia Roberts; and when all is said and done with her career, that will still be Emma's only claim to fame. Any more comments like this and she'll soon have a "target" emblazoned on that thick, unthinking head of hers.
Mar 1st 2010 6:45PM Sorry, but Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes was dreadful. As one reviewer wrote: it should have been called Robert Downey Jr. Horrible. I'm a fan of The Three Musketeers, but if its done with an attempt to "modernize" the movie in the same way as was Sherlock Holmes, then NO THANKS.
Jan 30th 2010 7:46AM Nice gesture, and I applaud the family for what they're doing; if I had as much money as these people obviously do (like $750,000 in my daughter's college fund!) I'd probably do something similar. But most of us hard-working folks out here are struggling to keep our own heads above the water let alone the heads of others, especially in this economy. Besides, if our president has his way we won't have to give our money to others, he'll "redistribute" our hard-earned monies for us.
Jan 29th 2010 11:11PM If "Fred" ISN'T the idiot who got kicked off of the plane, it doesn't matter: he's just as idiotic. Fred you are clueless.
Jan 28th 2010 5:42AM Neil Patrick Harris was cool, one of the best guest judges we've had this season. My vote for best guest judge is Shania Twain, but NPH came pretty darn close. Surprisingly (for me, at least), Kristin Chenoweth was good, too. Posh Spice and Joe Jonas were nice to the contestants, but they didn't really add anything. Worst guest judge has to be Avril Lavigne, followed closely by Katy Perry and Mary J. Blige. Katy Perry, in particular, was a big disappointment...I thought she was an excellent choice, as she's smart and beautiful, but she turned out to be a real "Queen," who wasn't much fun at all.
Dec 30th 2009 4:18PM Eric, sure, I know the difference between MMA and Boxing, but will accept my enlightenment that kickboxing isn't considered a form of MMA. However, that wasn't really my point, as you would figure out if you read my other posts. One of my points is exactly the same as yours: Boxing and MMA (okay, and K1, as well) are all different sports that require entirely different skill sets. The other point I was trying to make concerns, in particular, Ray Mercer's kayo over Tim Sylvia. Sylvia, after saying he was going to use Mercer as a stepping-stone to boxing's heavyweight title, was taught the embarassing and painful lesson that his skills don't translate to boxing any more than Mercer's boxing skills have translated to MMA success. And considering they had a kind of "gentlemen's agreement" to box only, no one should have been THAT surprised at the result. In other words, no great upset. Sure, Sylvia kicked Mercer once before he in turn was sent kicking, but listen to their prefight banter on you tube, as well as watch Mercer's evil fight-starting look of betrayal at Sylvia, who probably kicked more out of habit than anything else, and you will know this to be true. Which again proves my point, and yours: the different sports, different skillsets, and just because you excel at one doesn't mean you will find success in the other.
