GIVE “THE GOLDFINCH” A CHANCE

The Goldfinch was given negative reviews (mostly by jaded male critics, we presume) that drastically affected its boxoffice this weekend and we are here to defend this exquisite film. Sure, it’s a little too long, but the content more than makes up for it. Just take your time. This film builds very slowly and it sneaks up on the viewer – you find yourself identifying with the main character and literally feeling what he feels. It starts out a little sad and scary, but ends up filled with optimism. A very sensitive, fascinating and plausible story- altogether an satisfying experience. Give it a chance. We walked out feeling like we just read an excellent book…

DOES ANSEL ELGORT HAVE THE LONGEST NECK IN HOLLYWOOD?

Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort turned up for the Tom Ford show at NY Fashion Week, but he wasn’t WITH Miley Cyrus. Actually she was at the show too and they just got together to pose for some photos. Ansel, 25, has a long-time girlfriend. He’s currently filming the remake of West Side Story – he plays Tony. What we find interesting about Ansel is the length of his neck. We think he’s cute, but he has the longest neck in Hollywood and it gives him a couple extra inches of height. He’s 6’3” and whenever we see him in a suit, his neck looks extra long. Of course, his good posture elongates the whole look. Do you agree?

WOULD UPDATED VERSION OF WEST SIDE STORY BE A BLOODBATH?

The announcement today that Ansel Elgort has been cast to play Tony in Steven Spielberg’s “updated” version of West Side Story, leads to SO MANY questions! In the original West Side Story, the gangs of disaffected youth were cool but not dangerous, except for an occasional rumble. But NOW the gangs like The Latin Kings or Harlem Crips are psychopathic criminals capable of unthinkable violence! Is there any room for a sweet romance? Personally, we fell in love with slick Bernardo in the original film and haven’t lost our taste for Latinos. We never forgot him in that purple shirt and black shiny hair at the big dance. Who could play THIS key role? Any suggestions? Is this remake an awful idea?

ANSEL ELGORT DOESN’T LIKE PLAYING THE FIELD

Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort, 24, and his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, 22, are just arriving at Coachella with drinks in hand. They’ve been together since high school! Both attended La Guardia performing arts school where Violetta studied ballet. In 2014 when Ansel’s career took off, he went a little nuts and they took a five month break. Eventually he got a grip on himself, and realized that he prefers a long–term relationship to random dating. Hard to believe, but he claims to be a one-woman man.

BABY DRIVER STAR ANSEL ELGORT: KISS YOUR PRIVATE LIFE GOOD-BYE!

Young girls have been hip to Ansel Elgort, 23, for a while now, but until this weekend he could walk down the street relatively unnoticed (despite being 6’4”) Baby Driver opens this weekend and that’s going to change EVERYTHING. It’s a teenage dream movie – great music, cool cars, action galore, and even a sweet romance. Ansel’s provocative role is destined to launch him into stardom a la Jennifer Lawrence. The baby-faced actor does have a real-life girlfriend – his high school sweetheart, who happens to be a ballerina. Somehow that makes him even more appealing. Anyway, Baby Driver is a movie that’s hard not to like, even if you are NOT a fan of action, like us….

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
