So we’re not going to lie: fights are great fodder for this page. Obviously, we don’t want anyone to be seriously hurt, but if some famous d-bag gets in a dustup outside this club or that, it’s good for business here at Celebrity Slam. They’re almost always fun.
There has never been a better time to be an aging action star. We are in a geriatric golden age; whether you’re looking at the reinvigorated over-the-top stardom of guys like Stallone and Schwarzenegger or the reinvention of guys like Liam Neeson, the silver screen has seen plenty of old guys shooting guns and blowing stuff up.
Apparently, Sean Penn decided he wanted to get in on some of that action despite not necessarily having a good understanding of what makes those movies work. “The Gunman” is the unfortunate result of that ill-informed decision.
Second installment a step backward for series
It goes without saying that these days, franchises foot the bill in Hollywood. Big-budget multi-movie extravaganzas are the current watchword – and if they can be based on a preexisting pop cultural phenomenon, so much the better.
Looking ahead at the 2015 MLB season
It’s that time of year once again. The snow is slowly melting and we’re getting brief glimpses of grass. Despite all appearances, spring is coming.
The PBA comes to Portland
PORTLAND – It’s easy to be a fan of some sports. Our cultural climate has put leagues such as the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball at the very top of our awareness. Even those with no interest can’t escape the claxon call of pro sports.
MUNCIE, Ind. - A restroom at a Wal-Mart in eastern Indiana has been closed indefinitely after an employee discovered a working meth lab inside.
There are all sorts of reasons that famous folks find themselves being discussed in this space. They all have their places, obviously, but perhaps the most fun is the one-sided intercelebrity feud. It’s basically your standard beef, but only one of the parties is actually aggrieved. These particular conflicts tend to be extra crazy and/or stupid and/or ludicrous, making them that much more fun to ridicule.
Live-action Disney film lacks surprises, still entertains
Anyone who has been to the movies in the past 10 years can see that original ideas have gotten pretty thin on the ground in Hollywood. The writing is on the box office wall – it’s all about adapting existing properties or building franchises or mining the past (recent and otherwise); that’s the straightest path to the massive opening weekend that seems to be everyone’s primary goal.
Neeson’s latest action offering more of the same
As actors get older, they have a tendency to settle into comfort zones. They have roles that they enjoy playing - that they have been successful playing – and so continue to take those sorts of roles.
