mannequin2Plot:Jonathan Switcher is a young artist. He just doesn’t seem to last in any job he does. But when he builds a mannequin, he makes it so perfect, he falls in love with it. It is the first thing he has made that makes him feel like a real artist. The mannequin ends up in the window of a big department store. When he saves the life of an old lady who happens to be the owner of that store, he is rewarded by getting a job at the store as stock boy. Later the mannequin comes to life as Emmy, who was an ancient Egyptian living in the year 2514BC. The two redesign the window display to make it most eye catching in town. The store competitors are not happy and will do anything to stop them!¬†

up-mannequinI would like to¬†forewarn¬†any reader that I LOVE 80s films…truly, deeply, madly. ¬†Anyway, I have seen sooooo many 80s films and I can usually tell a good one from a bad one. ¬†This one was, was so cute. ¬†It’s not in the big leagues with Say Anything or 16 Candles, but, its definitely worth the viewing. ¬†

Lately all the 80s films I have seen I have been¬†disappointed¬†with (Porky’s, Weird Science), but this was great! It’s also a plus when it has Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall!

Although I am reviewing this film, here are some of my favorite 80s films that you must see (if you like the genre):

Sixteen Candles

Say Anything

Breakfast Club

Better Off Dead

Heathers

Secret to My Success

…I am sure I am missing some of the essentials, but these are my off the top favorites.¬†

I give this film 3.75/5 stars!

Britains Got Talent Episode 4 Highlights

Filed under: Britains got Talent,Celebrity,TV Review,Video — smackamack @ 1:53 am

And another week has gone by! ¬†Britains Got Talent really is one of the best shows…what the hell was America thinking when they tried to¬†recreate¬†this masterpiece without Ant and Dec!

1st Favorite Video: This guy is so awesome.  Factory worker by day/pizza guy by night.  He is really really nervous, but the emotion he brings into this song is unbelievable. 

2nd Favorite Video: This girl first auditioned with a friend who played keyboard and was horrible. ¬†She came back…and blew them all away.

And lastly…this kid’s performance isn’t great, but you can tell he is going to be a star! Ps. I used to sing this song better as a kid!

Gray Matters (2006) – Film Review

Filed under: Celebrity,Film Review — smackamack @ 1:46 am

graymattersposterPlot: They finish each other’s sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft–the perfect couple? Not exactly. Gray and Sam, are a sister and brother so compatible and inseparable that people actually assume they are dating. Mortified, they both agree they must branch out and start searching for love. He’ll look for a guy for her and she’ll look for a gal for him. They didn’t realize they would both fall for the same girl…

This film was kind of a waste of time, so I will not be spending much time on it.  

The film looked really cute in the trailer, had Heather Graham and Alan Cummings, but definitely failed to impress. ¬†The acting was bad, the direction was bad, and the writing was bad. ¬†I don’t particularly recommend this film… 1.5/5 stars.

Cleopatra (1963) – Film Review

Filed under: Celebrity,Film Review — smackamack @ 1:42 am

antony-cleopatra-1963-dvd

cleopatra1Plot: The story of Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt who wants to stabilize her power by using the tensions in the Roman Empire. Caesar visits Egypt, has an affair with her, and returns to Rome. She bears his child and visits Rome to claim her place at Caesar’s side. He is murdered before this can happen. She returns to Egypt leaving Rome in turmoil. Mark Antony follows her to Egypt and they fall in love. However, Octavian defeats Anthony in battle.¬†

This epic film is a true treat to watch. ¬†It is supposedly still the second most expensive film of all time….and you can tell. ¬†The sets, the costumes, the designs, and the camera work are true exceptional. ¬†Although the film is 4 hours, it was worth seeing. ¬†However, with that said, I don’t mean it is a great film…it’s not. ¬†The film can be slow at times, and the acting can be questionable.

sjff_03_img1364I loved Elizabeth Taylor in this film…i know she get shit reviews, but I loved it. ¬†She plays her so well, personally. ¬†Also, it was cool seeing Rex Harrison and Richard Burton of course. ¬†

I recommend this film to film and/or history buffs. Be warned, its 4 hours, and you will need a few breaks (took me 24 hours to watch it all).  I give this film 3/5 stars.

Celebrity Sighting of the Day – Jeremy Irons

Filed under: Celebrity — smackamack @ 5:56 pm

jeremy-irons-20080715-436952I was at the MTV building in Times Square signing in for a networking event for ex-interns (totally lame by the way) and none other than Jeremy Irons was standing next to me whilst signing in. ¬†The best part was when the guard asked what his name was and he said in a very beautiful voice “I am Jeremy Irons”. ¬†

In the past this wouldn’t have been very exciting; however, I have done nothing but talk about him lately. ¬†First I was watching the Brideshead Revisited, and then my roommate was telling me about how much her mother loved him, then I noticed he is preforming in a play in the city, and then I stood next to him! I was actually tempted to say something, but I didn’t…I think he was there for the uber secret Star Trek screening. ¬†

Some info: 

iro0-009aBorn 19 September 1948. English film, televisoin and stage actor. ¬†He has won an Academy Award, a Tony Award a Screen Actors Guild Award, 2 Emmy’s and 2 Golden Globes. ¬†

And he was hot…

The Office (2005-Present) – TV Review

Filed under: Celebrity,Comedy,TV Review — smackamack @ 11:44 pm

the-office-season-3-dvd-1

0000039609_20070509125807Plot: A remake of the hit 2001 BBC TV series The Office (2001), this is a mockumentary that documents the exploits of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Made up of head chief Michael Scott, a harmlessly deluded and ignorantly insensitive boss who cares about the welfare of his employees while trying to put his own spin on company policy. With an office including the likes of various peers who have their own hangups, The Office (2005) takes a look at the lives of its co-workers: bored but talented salesman Jim, his mildly sociopathic, butt kissing enemy Dwight, mildly righteous receptionist Pam, and indifferent temp Ryan.

one-schrute-buckI was officially obsessed with the originally British version of this show in England – I thought it was brilliant (until I saw Extras and it was even better). ¬†I love Ricky Gervais. ¬†I remember seeing the American one preview night with Mark when we first started dating, however, it was an exact copy. ¬†It didn’t work.

Needless to say, it has done very well, so I decided to watch it. ¬†I skipped the first season because I had seen some of it and it was crap. ¬†However, starting with the second season, it was awesome! ¬†It really found its feet, the actors grew into the characters, and it became its own! ¬†It’s not like the UK version, but its definitely worth watching.

I just love Jim and Pam…so adorable!

Dwight is amazing…

I recommend this show for anyone into this type of humor (mockumentary, awkward pauses etc)… I give the series thus far 4/5 stars. ¬†¬†
