CBS rapped up it’s 18th season of “Survivor” entitled “Survivor : Tocantins” tonight (5-17-09),and the seven “Survivor” tribe peer members voted James “J.T.” Thomas Jr. to be the winner of the 18th installment of “Survivor” which was set in the rugged interior of Brazil. The show began with 16 players,and slowly but surely made it’s way down to the final two which consisted of James Thomas and New Yorker Stephen Fishbach on tonight’s finale.

James will take home $1 million before taxes to his home in Samson, Alabama where he owns a cattle-ranching business. I caught some of tonight’s episode,and they had a really interesting final competition which consisted of a ball maze game. It was really mental to see who could last the longest. It was rather unique and entertaining.

At the end of the show they showed a preview of where the 19th installment of Survivor would take place. They confirmed that it will take place in Samoa. So all you die hard “Survivor” fans have that to look forward to.

I was never really a fan of the old “Star Trek” movies,and tv shows. I always thought it was kind of dull and boring,but man this new remake erased all of that. It really came with some heat and incredible action.

In the plot, it traced back to when George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth), the father of the Future Captain James T. Kirk would save 800 or so people from an enemy attack when he became captain of the Starship Enterprise for about 13 seconds before meeting his demise. Then it skips ahead to a rebellious,young James Kirk doing things like driving a car off a cliff,getting into a fight in a bar,and just being a smart alecky menace. He eventually takes up the challenge of Captain Christopher Pike to join the starship academy where he has his first run in with Spock when he cheats on Spock’s captain simulator test.

The two would battle back in forth while on a routine Starship Enterprise mission turned dangerous Read more »

With the opening, weekend box office success of “X-Men Origins : Wolverine”, there is no doubt that there will be at least a sequel or two. But also there are more spinoffs in the works for this franchise. The first and most likely one to date, which I already knew about since I reported on it a couple of months ago is “X-Men Origins : Magneto” which will trace back to the early years of Eric Lensherr and Charles Xavier ,and how they eventually become enemies after being friends at first. This particular spinoff has actually been waiting in the wings for some time now. The writer / director , David Goyle said it’s release would be contingent on the success of the “Wolverine” film so I’m pretty sure it’s going to get green lighted. Read more »

‘Ghost Of Girlfriends Past’ Movie Review

While I’m not usually a fan of Romantic Comedies, I do occasionally like to go see them when I know they’re going to be more funny than romantic. This film was just that in every sense of the word as Matthew McConaughey plays the very funny character of Connor Mead who is a famous,womanizing photographer. In the beginning of this film, we see Connor Mead photographing one of the models who is none other than the sexy singer, Christine Milian. He ends up making out with her while he breaks up with three other girls he was dating at the same time on a conference call. It was very funny stuff. He is then reminded by his assistant that he is supposed to be the best man at his brother’s wedding.

Bitter at the whole idea of marriage, Connor doesn’t provide a very positive presence at his brother’s house. Read more »
