"Sex and the City 2" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha Get?
I am not a fan of the “Sex and the City” franchise. That’s my confession. I ignored the TV series, and the first film was a lackluster experience for me. But good news “Sex and the City” fans! I enjoyed the sequel more than the original.
The nature of the friendship between the four main leads namely Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is explored. It’s an important narrative device that was not used in the first film.
By showing us how the four girls met, writer-producer-director Michael Patrick King invited us to participate in this new journey that takes our heroines away from New York City and into Abu Dhabi. Read More...

According to The Sun, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a super-hot Victoria's Secret model has been offered the role as Shia LaBeouf's love interest in "Transformers 3." The British tabloid reports that:
Rosie - who is dating actor JASON STATHAM and used to go out with KYLIE MINOGUE's ex OLIVIER MARTINEZ - has not got any acting roles behind her.
No acting credentials? Shocking! Well it's not like Megan Fox was a thespian when director Michael Bay offered her the role of Mikaela Barnes in 2007's "Transformers." Aside from small television and film roles, Fox was a newbie.
As we all know by now, Megan Fox will not be joining "Transformers 3" because either:
A) She was fired from the franchise by Bay and Paramount
B) It was her decision to leave the franchise
All I can say is Huntington-Whiteley, like Fox, is hot! It seems that it's the only quality you need to have to be LaBeouf's leading lady in a "Transformers" movie. Come on, you can imagine her in daisy dukes while fighting robots, can't you?

As we told you two weeks ago, the great Martin Scorsese is going to direct and produce a biopic about the legendary Ol' Blue Eyes Mister Frank Sinatra!
Everyone from Johnny Depp to Leonardo DiCaprio has been rumored to be in talks with Scorsese for the project.
But now, it seems that the director has his sights on Al Pacino and Robert De Niro to play the older incarnations of Sinatra and Dean Martin, respectively. Sounds too good to be true, but the director was quoted by The Playlist saying "I'm yet to spot the actor who can bring back Frank Sinatra alive on screen. My choice is Al Pacino, and Robert De Niro as Dean Martin."
We'll have more on this Sinatra film as more details surface, but for now, the director will be busy working on his first 3D film, "Hugo Cabret," starring Chloe Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley.

"Shrek Forever After" saw a lot of green in its opening weekend, making $71.3 million! BUT, the fourth installment's box office performance is the weakest of all "Shrek" sequels.
2004's "Shrek 2" debuted with $108 million while "Shrek the Third" opened in 2007 with $121.6 million. (Check out my movie review of this DreamWorks Animation flick right here)
"Shrek Forever After" was not helped with its 3D release either. The film only made $5 million on IMAX, approximately 7 percent of its gross.
But I enjoyed this fourth adventure, and it's a fitting ending to the beloved franchise. Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas, and Cameron Diaz were game, but this time, the scene-stealer was Walt Dohrn, the head of story and the voice of Rumpelstiltskin.
"Shrek Forever After" might have opened well below expectations, but it's still the No. 4 among the top animated openings of all time. No. 1 is "Shrek the Third" followed by "Shrek 2" then "The Simpsons (Movie)" at No. 3.
Previous weekend's top flick, "Iron Man 2," fell to No. 2 with $26.6 million but the super hero action film starring Robert Downey Jr. has already made over $251 million in just three weeks! (Check out my movie review of "Iron Man 2" right here)
"Robin Hood" from Universal Pictures starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett from director Ridley Scott fell to No. 3 with $18.7 million. (Check out my movie review of "Robin Hood" right here)
But Universal wasn't laughing its way all the way to the bank with its new release "MacGruber" starring Will Forte. Based on the "Saturday Night Live" skit, the action-comedy made a very disappointing $4.1 million. Yikes! But this spoof of "MacGyver" only cost $10 million to make. It still stings though.
Here's the estimated Top 10 list of box-office films for weekend of May 21:
1. "Shrek Forever After," $71.3 million.
2. "Iron Man 2," $26.6 million.
3. "Robin Hood," $18.7 million.
4. "Letters to Juliet," $9.1 million.
5. "Just Wright," $4.2 million.
6. "MacGruber," $4.1 million.
7. "Date Night," $2.8 million.
8. "A Nightmare on Elm Street," $2.3 million.
9. "How to Train Your Dragon," $1.9 million.
10. "Kites," $1 million.
