While the current headlines are screaming about Jennifer Lawrence and her personal nudity being stolen from iCloud and the fact that Apple may not be safe as it should be, the big question here is, just who is zooming who. Points will be given for those who can spot the obvious pun in this thoughtful query. The business of stealing celebrity’s personal images is booming and while there are teens, prepubescent males and the older curiosity seeking man or woman who want to know just what Mary Elizabeth Winstead looks like in her birthday suit, hackers will attempt to provide.
Scarlett Johansson is Lucy in this darkly humorous treat from Luc Besson. It has to be said that this film will not appeal to everyone. Only true Besson fans will enjoy this film, although many may not understand the parallels that run throughout the entire movie. However, if those viewers who loved Fifth Element and its music, which guided events to the end of the film, see his latest effort, they will most surely love it.
Well, what a difference a year makes, the Maxim Hot 100 list for 2014 is out and it has dropped Miley Cyrus to number 25 on the list. Last year, the 21 year-old singer placed a somewhat controversial number one. The decision to place a, then, 20 year-old in the top spot was not made any more palatable by complaints that Cyrus looked too much like Justin Bieber to be considered sexy.
Jennifer Lawrence must be feeling pretty satisfied right now, after being named the sexiest woman in 2014, at least according to FHM, her “rival” Miley Cyrus did not even make the top 10. Ouch. Proof positive that “the girl next door” will always be sexier than the tramp in the street, or something along those lines.
Jonathan Glazer’s “out of the box” film Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson is a film that almost defies description, but at its core the movie is intensely stark with a terrible grim beauty. The film could be categorized as science fiction noir for lack of a better term, and Glazer may just have, along with his star, the wildly talented Johansson, invented a new genre.
