Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot

Born April 30, 1985

Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman. Take that in for a minute. She is a trained Israeli soldier which means that the moves you see her do are for real and she can kick your ass. And you will like it.

Noteworthy

  • Keeping Up with the Jones – Gadot and Jon Hamm are the spies neighbors to Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis. This is such a well put together movie. The acting is good, the plot is good, and the comedic bits are funny. What more can you ask for? Plus Gadot and Hamm look great together.
  • Furious 7 – Gadot in a fast car saving the team. It is amazing. I really dug the introduction of Gadot to the family.
  • Batman vs Superman – She was one of the few highlights for me in a movie that I really didn’t care for. The shot of her sliding across the ground after getting hit by Doomsday, skidding to a stop, and then smiling – worth the price of admission.
  • Wonder Woman – Loved the whole movie until the ending with Ares – listen to the podcast and you will hear more on this. Gadot rocks the role of Wonder Woman and I hope they keep it rolling.

Wonder Woman, she’s amazing. I love everything that she represents and everything that she stands for. She’s all about love and compassion and truth and justice and equality, and she’s a whole lot of woman.

Tone Loc

Tone Loc Born March 3, 1966   Tone Loc was one of those iconic entertainers from my youth that I will never forget. His musical stylings fit the MTV generation that I grew up in and his beats are still rolling around in my head. Noteworthy Wild Thing & Funky Cold...

DL Hughley

DL Hughley Born March 6, 1963   DL Hughley first dropped onto my radar when he was part of the Original Kings of Comedy. I had probably seen him before that but this was my first exposure to his style of comedy, his perspective, and his brilliant mind. Noteworthy...

Why are their so many stars with disturbing parents? Is it the same percentage as us normal folk and their celebrity puts them in the public eye? Or are they more prone to having a lot more crazy and creepy because of their talent? Stars with Disturbing Parents: JACK...

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Born April 14, 1977

Sarah Michelle Gellar is was and will always be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now that that is out of the way. SHe is super talented and has been involved in a lot of other projects. Very seldom do I go with the 4 “known for” spots on IMDB but they are my favorites so I am rolling with those.

Noteworthy

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Freaking Buffy! This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. For 7 seasons she was all girl power all the time. Though I would still claim the show was really about the redemption of Spike.
  • Cruel Intentions – SMG as a bad girl. We knew she had it in her.
  • Scooby-Doo – There is not a better Daphne then SMG. This cast was perfect together and it is my favorite of the live-action Scooby-Do movies.
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer – Though she was not the lead in IKWYDLS, she was so stinking good in this. Not as good as Scream but SMG kicked it up a notch.

I actually go to the gym much more now than I did when I was on Buffy. I like to stay fit, because that’s when I feel really healthy. But I never worked out for any kind of image. People have said to me, ‘Do you starve yourself before photo shoots?’ And I always say, ‘No way.! That’s what airbrushing is for. I had french fries last night.’

Chris Parnell

Chris Parnell - Born February 5, 1967 I love Chris Parnell. He is like white wine vinegar, he brightens the whole recipe. He is like a chili pepper in the chili - you miss it when it is not there. He, much like Vince Vaughn should just make an appearance in every...
Nicholas Brendon

Nicholas Brendon

Nicholas Brendon

Born April 12, 1971

Nicholas Brendon , playing Xander, was one of my favorite characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The episode entitled The Zeppo is the best Xander-centric episode in my opinion. The whole plot revolves around him and it isTV perfection.

Xander Quotes

  • Who’s a little fear demon? Come on, who’s a little fear demon?
  • Are you ready to get down, you funky party weasel?
  • You know what day is great for a break-up? Any day but Valentine’s Day!
  • I don’t handle rejection well. Funny, considering all the practice I’ve had, huh?
  • I’m sorry, but let’s not forget that I hated Angel long before you guys jumped on the bandwagon. So I think I deserve a little something for not saying ‘I told you so’ long before now. And if Giles wants to go after the, uh, fiend that murdered his girlfriend, I say, ‘Faster, pussycat, kill, kill.

It was nice to make things right, and I went to prom and actually had a good time in the TV world – the real world wasn’t so much fun.

Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis Born March 19, 1955   Bruce Willis is a part of pop-culture. From the Seagram's ads back in the 80s and Moonlighting to the Die Hard movies, he has shaped how we look at leading men and what those leading men can look like and what they can do on screen....

Dakota Fanning

Dakota Fanning Born February 23, 1994   Dakota Fanning popped onto my radar when she appeared in either The Cat in the Hat or Man on Fire. Man on Fire certainly stood out more to me at the time. Since that point, she has continued to turn out good work and is one of...

Clark Gregg

Alan Tudyk

Alan Tudyk

Alan Tudyk

Born March 16, 1971

Alan Tudyk has embraced the geek over and over in his career. I will watch him in just about anything and go out of my way to keep an eye on what he has been in or what he has coming out soon. Below is such a small list of what he has done, I am leaving a lot out. Damn, I love Alan Tudyk.

Noteworthy

  • A Knight’s Tale – Tudyk plays Wat. He is one of William’s band of compatriots. Wat is the brash hot head of the group and one of the main reason that I can watch it over and over and over.
  • Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story – Steve the Pirate. I don’t know that I need to say anything else. Tudyk played a guy who identified as a pirate.
  • Tucker and Dale vs Evil – I LOVE this movie and I will watch it when there is nothing else that strikes my fancy. Tudyk is Tucker – a country boy that just wants to enjoy some fishing at his new cabin. Horror is close at hand and there is a lot of funny mixed in with a truly good plot.
  • Wreck-It Ralph – Tudyk is King Candy and he is doing his best Ed Wynn impersonation the whole time.
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – As one of the big names in all of Geekdom, Tudyk made the step into the Star Wars Universe by voicing K-2SO one of the best droids to ever come out of that particular realm of space-based fantasy.

Reading is a heady thing. You can be into the action of someone’s thoughts and take a whole trip down someone’s ruminations while seconds tick by in the world that they’re in, but you can’t really do that in film.

-Alan Tudyk

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be

What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?

What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?

Slate.com had a great review of DC Comics new version of The Flintstones. Gone is the goofy group of cave people that lived in a little town called bedrock. Wilma and Fred are still here but they are less like the Honey Mooners and more up to date in a 1 million year BCE way. More up to date topics are covered – including gay marriage. The dinosaurs are still there and they still have personalities but more than just: “It’s a living.” These dinos reflect on their plight in life. All in all, it looks like a good book and with the first 6 issues being in trade paperback form, this might have to be something that I pick up to read. But my thought is: What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?


Source: Mark Russell and Steve Pugh’s comic book reboot of The Flintstones, reviewed.


All of that being said, I wonder what it would be like if The Flinstones were a little more realistic:

  1. Family Time? Not so much. Try small groups with no family units. The strongest male is the winner and the ruler. The men would hunt, the women would do everything else, most likely.
  2. The Wheel – No cars with foot power. Not only no cars but really all simple machines would have been out of their reach. Sad non-scientific cavemen. Also, no dino driven washing machines, cameras or record players. Not a single luxury – wait a minute that is the wrong sitcom.
  3. Dinosaurs – Nope, no dinosaurs but they would have had oversized and undersized mammals and lizards. These mammals would have been their main source of food, clothing, etc. And no Dino especially the talking version that we had from time to time in the old cartoon.
  4. Jobs – If simple machines eluded our ancestors, then employment would have been over their heads for sure. Now, that is not to say that Og the caveman might not have been regulated to cleaning the back of the cave but not paying jobs at the local gravel pit for Mr Slate.
  5. Bloody, Short Lives – In reality, without the intervention of the Great Gazoo, the Flintstones would have had very short, very dismal, very bloody lives. Of course, you have to have the Great Gazoo – especialy voice by Harvey Corman.
