Sure we have George, Brad, Johnny, Reese, Angelina…
But which up and coming movie stars will become household names by 2020?
Here are my 7 future mega-movie stars…
1. JESSICA CHASTAIN- Already an Oscar nominee, I expect her to become the next Julia Roberts. The only difference will be the fact that Jessica is a better actress already.
2. MICHAEL FASSBENDER- After seeing Shame, I have no doubt that he will become the next great leading man. Not everyone knows him yet, but they soon will. I believe he could be the next 007, when Daniel Craig retires from the role.
John Carter opens up in theaters tomorrow and Disney has a lot riding on it’s $250 million dollar epic. But where does a sci-fi character like John Carter rank all time among his fellow space adventures?
Here are the 10 most interesting sci-fi characters of all time.
1. LUKE SKYWALKER- The hero of the original Star Wars trilogy. Luke leads a space rebellion against the evil Darth Vadar who (ancient spoiler alert) is actually Luke’s father.
2. BUCK ROGERS- Famously portrayed in the campy late 70′s tv series, Rogers was an astronaut who is involved in a freak accident in space. He falls into a state of suspended animation without aging until he is reanimated in the 25th Century.
We are only two months away from the beginning of everyone’s favorite movie season. Summer movies give an audience the chance to munch on some popcorn and watch the screen explode with some of the year’s best action spectaculars.
Since these five are must sees, I will put them in order of their release date.
THE AVENGERS (May 4)
I’m really curious to see how they can fit all these superheroes (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, among others) into one movie and have it all make sense. Fanboys might need a change of underwear while watching this movie.
To all the people bitching and moaning about the Oscars being too long, or too boring, or too in love with itself… SHUT UP!
The telecast was up 4% from last year’s show hosted by the dynamic duo of uppers and downers (Anne Hathaway and James Franco).
But that doesn’t mean it can’t become a better show.
5 WAYS TO IMPROVE THE OSCARS:
1) As great as Billy Crystal was, he can’t host forever. Nine times might be just enough for him at the age of 64. The Academy needs to find a longterm replacement and not second guess their choice or look back. Someone they can plug in to host for the next 5+ years. I suggest Stephen Colbert. He has the wit and character for Hollywood’s biggest night.
After seeing Safe House, I now believe Denzel Washington has entered that rare list of actors who make any movie better than it really is.
Denzel remains one of the few real leading men we have today. Sure lots of actors are leads in films, but Denzel is always the alpha male in the room even without saying a word. All he needs is a smile, a slight bobbing of his head and a look that says “I can still kick your ass”.
Here are the 10 best performances in the career of Denzel Washington…
Sometimes people separate the idea of good looking from good acting. Just look at the career of Megan Fox. I would pay to see her on an IMAX screen. Not for her acting, just for her looks.
But there must be a few actresses who can combine beauty with talent.
Here are my 5 sexiest actresses who have the talent to back up their beauty.
Brad Pitt’s better half is considered one of Hollywood’s most beautiful actresses. What she doesn’t get enough credit for is being a great actress. She can do drama like Changeling or be a sexy action heroine in movies like Salt and Wanted.
While I consider myself a movie snob, I think I might be even more of a snob when it comes to television.
I try to avoid watching the four major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX). I don’t like networks who give new shows an average of 3 weeks to get good ratings before pulling the plug. Plus, I find the lack of talent in the performances and writing to be too much to overcome.
I believe the best shows on TV come from cable networks. HBO, FX, USA, Showtime, AMC, etc.
