G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra

G.I. Joe is not a person, it’s an elite military group. You don’t apply to be part of the group, they ask you if they think you are fit for the task.

Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) are part of a NATO troop that have a mission to deliver warheads to NATO. The warheads contain a new weapon based on nanotechnology. Each one of the warheads have the capability to destroy an entire city. The company behind the technology is MARS, lead by weapons expert James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston). James has his own plans for the warheads, and that does not include letting them get to their destination.

The NATO troop is ambushed by The Baroness (Sienna Miller) during a mission. As the fight goes on, Duke recognizes the Baroness to be his ex-fiancee Ana. They are both a bit surprised to be meeting in such a manor. A team of G.I. Joes comes to the rescue, and the bad guys are fight of, for now. Read the rest of this entry »

Legally Blondes (aka Legally Blonde 3)

Legally Blondes

Legally Blondes

I watched this movie some time ago but for various reasons never got around to blog about it. Figured it was about time now 🙂

This movie, which is labeled as the third Legally Blonde movie, does not feature Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) as main character. In fact she’s not even in the movie, other then as a side figure. Although Reese Witherspoon is one of the producers behind the movie.

The main characters of this one is Elle Woods young twin cousins Izzy and Annie Woods (Becky Rosso and Milly Rosso). The twins of course like pink, and they are blonde. I say of course as that is to be expected since the movie after all is a sequel to Legally Blonde 2. Read the rest of this entry »

The movie is about Walt Kowalski (played by Clint Eastwood), a grumpy war veteran. We first meet him at the funeral of his late wife Dorothy.

The return of Whitney Houston

Apparently Whitney Houston is planning a comeback, with a new album in early september (at least it is scheduled to be released September 2nd here is Sweden.

Today one of our online newspapers offered a free download of a single from that album, the title track “I Look To You“. It might not be as strong as some of the ones from her glory days, but her voice has survived the years well. The song is a soft ballad.

Judging from this one song the upcoming album is definitely worth checking out when it is released.
