Tyler Perry’s ‘For Colored Girls’

I wanted to like ‘For Colored Girls’, Tyler Perry’s big foray into making emotionally invested films not just straight-to-dvd-movies. I enjoyed reading the play, Ntozake Shange’s 1975 “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf’. In fact, I loved the play. However I was worried after reading just the first few pages of monologue how Perry could turn these lengthy narratives into an entertaining Hollywood blockbuster. The answer is…he didn’t. Everyone woman in this film did her best, this is guaranteed. Anika Noni Rose, Loretta Devine, and Kimberly Elise keep the film real. They help the audience invest, emotionally, to the character. But, then there’s Janet Jackson. Perhaps this is because I can’t look at the screen without knowing I’m watching Jackson be anything expect the pop icon/mad woman she is. In any event, she’s by far the weakest link. I will give Tyler Perry this, it was the best film I’ve seen from him. But with the Medea enterprise being the mainstay of his career, that isn’t saying much.

‘Due Date’ is Slightly Stupid

I love Zach Galifianakis (Ethan) and Robert Downey Jr. (Peter). They are both talented actors with brilliant comedic abilities. What could be better than a road trip version of ‘The Hangover’. Unfortunately, that’s not what this film delivers. This doesn’t mean the movies not funny. There were moments in ‘Due Date’ where I had to hold my breath to get rid of the hiccups from laughing so much. Both characters become caricatures of real people. It’s both hilarious and slightly stupid. I like slightly stupid. The humor has little ‘Abbot and Costello’ feel to it with Galifianakis and Downey playing perfectly off of each other and the physical humor has a great old school feeling. I worry this is all lost with the idea that this isn’t ‘Hangover 2’. Enjoy it, it’ll make you laugh.

‘Hereafter’ for Ever

‘Hereafter’ has more energy then most big budget disaster films all wrapped up in a brilliantly acted ensemble drama. Clint Eastwood has taken on death in a gentle, non-religious, realistic way. Eastwood is taking a chance, thankfully, and allowing the audience at ‘Hereafter’ to learn from his characters instead of showing with glorified special effects. George (Matt Damon) is the protagonist dealing with his thoughts and feelings about death and what may come after, and this may be the best I’ve ever seen Damon. He plays George as subtle and real. ‘Hereafter’ will make audience members emote, questioning their own faith, the love they feel toward their mothers, their families, and considering living life now, not later.

Actor Keith Collins has been cast in many roles before but none like the one he has recently signed on to film. Currently on movie set in the small town of Marion, New York and filming this winters new upcoming highly talked about thriller/horror feature film “Awake In The Woods” Taking some time to sit with us while being mobbed by onlookers. We caught up with Collins who has been on the spooky set that revolves around a wooded area transformed into what one would say is an extremely chilling atmosphere weather it was night or day just being there behind the scenes was making the hairs on the back of our neck stand up and making our minds wander with anticipation while looking at this old abandoned woodsy fog filled area that has been molded into a Hollywood film set. Collins, starting to get into character was able to talk with us for a moment as we were eagerly waiting to find out more about “Awake In The Woods” and what better way than being there right in the middle of the all action. Pleased to say we were able to find out so much more about this new bone chilling film.
Veronica (Galeani), Tucker (Boise), and Derek (Collins) grew up in small town Marion, New York. Everyone in town had heard stories of odd happenings within the Marion woods and the woods became an urban legend everyone assumed was just that, a legend. But when a young girl goes missing within the woods and the paranormal activity begins to heighten Ronnie, Tucker, and Derek decide to investigate. The three friends camp out, hoping to make a documentary about their town’s ghost story, but what happens next, no one could have prepared for. What happened to them is unexplainable and only one was left wandering, alone, awake in the woods.
“Awake In The Woods” will be out early winter of 2011. Produced by MM Mayhem Films the talented cast stars Theresa Galeani, Keith Collins, Nicholas Boise, & Madelaine Kemp.“Awake In The Woods” is written by Galeani & directed by Nicholas Boise. We look forward to seeing “Awake In The Woods” this winter. Sounds like one thrilling movie creep show not to be missed!!

‘Saw 3D’ is Something I Wish I Hadn’t Seen

Another Saw sequel, although this time in 3D, follows the same horror guidelines as all the following in the series. It seems the recipe requires too many plots linked together thru flashbacks, intercepting character situations, and bloody gore. More and more it seems that the only requirement for a ‘good’ horror film is repulsive torture and death scenes. The audience is meant to be believe the character’s poorly realized revelations. I’m am sure ’Saw 3D’ will do well at the box office. This is a film for Saw followers and really no one else.

The word is out that Supermodel & Actress Debbie Dickinson will be hosting the beautiful jewelry collection of ALZERINA at the Warren Tricomi Salon Tuesday, and Friday afternoon November 9th& 12th from 12-6pm.

A L Z E R I N A has made a name for herself by fashioning glamorous pieces for both celebrities and her many private clients.Growing up in Cape Verde, A L Z E R I N A was drawn to the world of fashion by her mother, Josepha Gomes, who was a well-known clothing designer. Inspired to start her own clothing line at the young age of 14 Alzerina quickly became adept at her craft and was accepted by the local art community. She soon began to design jewelry for artists, musicians, actors, and an influential clientele on the islands of Cape Verde.
Compelled by the desire for inspiration and the need to create, A L Z E R I N A moved to the fashion capital of Paris. There, she meshed her passion for the world of fashion with the beauty of the city and its people. In 1998, after eight years in the high fashion world of Paris, she headed to New York City where she created her own label.
Once in New York, A L Z E R I N A acquired yet more experience and perfected her art. Her dedication to beauty, elegance, and femininity is reflected in her jeweled creations. She draws inspiration from her clients’ style and sensibilities and therefore designs each piece individually. Her creations emerge as art in the form of exquisite jewelry and high-fashion intimate wear.
Although A L Z E R I N A is known for her intricately crafted jewelry worn by women who love to feel and look good, she is also recognized for her line of intimate jeweled lingerie. Her lingerie, designed especially for the fashionably bold, features bra and panty sets made of thin chains embedded with colorful Swarovski crystals. These pieces epitomize style and a feminine grace. The lingerie is considered “couture” due to its unique and distinctive quality and craftsmanship.
A L Z E R I N A 's collections continue to appeal to singers, musicians, and dancers but are now appreciated by an increasingly wider worldwide audience due to her successful web sales. Brides shop for their wedding party jewelry ensembles, while her lovely designs are on the ‘must buy’ list of anyone shopping for a Valentine gift, an anniversary or birthday, a holiday wardrobe or for ‘that special something’ to spark up a day at the office.
There’s something for everyone in A L Z E R I N A ’s beautiful new collection – where she continues to be just a step ahead of the trend while remaining classic with her popular best-selling favorites.

Restaurant Spotlight - NYC's Centro Vinoteca

A casually elegant neighborhood restaurant, Centro Vinoteca showcases boldly flavored cooking rooted in the traditions of Italy. The sleek and stylish space is bright and white as the light floods in through the floor to ceiling window panes. Each curve and bend of the oddly shaped bar begs you to join her for a drink. The aromas from open kitchen tease, tempt and toy with you as they urge you order something more. Start with piccolini - small shareable plates designed to whet the appetite such as truffled deviled eggs or saffron arancine before delving into the well-priced main menu. For antipasti try the grilled octopus with white bean puree or the grilled pizzetta with slow-cooked tomatoes. But the real reason for visiting Centro Vinoteca is the pastas. Think simple, organic, local ingredients. Try the papardelle with roasted wild mushrooms or the roasted butternut squash pansotti with sage and toasted walnuts. The wine list features over 200 wines from throughout Italy, including many available by the quartino. Come for a drink... and stay for the friendly staff and the seasoned chefs.
