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.

First of all, yes there is going to be a new He-man movie remake, and now, Warner Bros.and Silver Pictures have hired a newcomer by the name of Evan Daugherty to pen or write the script for it. They previously Hired Justin Marks who wrote “Street Fighter : The Legend of Chun Li” to write the He-man draft. So now Evan Daugherty will be working off Justin’s previous draft of He-man.

Review : The New ‘Star Trek’ Movie Packed Some Heat

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 »

The wild and fancy free Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban issued a public apology on his blog today for a heated exchange of words between him and Lydia Moore, Nugget’s forward, Kenyon Martin’s mother after Game 3 of their playoff series on Saturday May 9,2009. Apparently he called Kenyon Martin a thug and a punk. Then on game 4 of the playoffs there was a ton of tension in the stands. Lydia Moore had beer poured on her,and his girlfriend was verbally harassed. Also LaLa Vazquez who is the girlfriend of Nugget’s player Carmelo Anthony had an unpleasant altercation with a security guard ,and left the game after that. After the game, Mark Cuban posted his apology on his blog stating that this situation has gotten out of control.

He went on to write : ““When tempers and such start impacting the fan experience both in Dallas and Denver, and it requires special security, that’s not what I want for Mavs or Nuggets fans. Read more »

Yesterday, Keifer Sutherland who is currently the star of Fox’s hit show, “24” as agent Jack Bauer, has been charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly headbutting a fashion designer named, Jack McCollough of the Proenza Schouler fashion house. McCollough claims he was attacked by him after an argument that left him with a cut on his face early Tuesday morning.

Sutherland, has been ordered to appear in court on June 22,2009. It’s been reported that the misdemeanor is similar to a speeding ticket violation. Sutherland was currently on probation for drunk driving when the incident took place so it’s unsure at the moment if this altercation will have an effect on that.

Possible ‘X-Men’ Sequels and Spinoffs in The Works

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 »

‘X-Men Origins : Wolverine’ Movie Review

This movie was absolutely excellent, and totally rocked as it went back in time to the beginnings of Logan (Hugh Jackman) better known as “Wolverine”. We also got to see the origins of his brother,Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) known as, “Sabretooth”. It showed that Logan goes from a sickly child one moment to a revengeful killer the next. Victor likes it, as he realizes that his “always sick little brother” is a mutant just like him. So they run off together to fight in wars while servicing in the military. But then Victor starts to fall off the wagon a little bit. He starts attacking civilians,and some of his own team members. Logan who’s vowed to stand by his brother gets taken down with him and thrown in prison.

This is when the movie takes a turning point as Scientist, William Stryker (Danny Huston) comes onto the scene. Read more »

‘Observe and Report’ Movie Review

Although “Observe and Report” did have it’s differences to the Kevin James “Paul Blart” movie, it was way to similar in the overall scheme of the way the film played out.

The plot involved Seth Rogen’s character, Ronnie Barnhardt as a, you guessed it, mall cop with dreams of bigger things ,and who’s ego is way bigger than who he actually is. He also has a crush on a girl named, Brandi (Anna Farris) that works in the mall at the beauty department. Everytime he tries to talk to her, he says weird and crazy things to her. There’s also a crazy flasher who runs around the mall parking lot, showing his genetals to everyone. Ronnie Barnhardt’s number one goal is to bring down the flasher.

The mall, however brings in a real detective named, Detective Harris ( Ray Liotta). Read more »

On late Thursday, Ashton Kutcher, the former “That 70’s Show” actor and former host of MTV’s “Punk’d” edged out the giant news media company, CNN to be the first to get a million followers on “Twitter”. I knew someone would have a contest like this. It’s like when Myspace first started to become really popular,and everyone would brag about how many friends they had. Anyways, he was able to win the coveted million, Twitter, follower crown by becoming the ringleader of a frenetic digital circus act which included Larry King,video game maker Electronic Arts Inc., a 25 year old Web developer from London,and a ton of online participants.
