Eye Candy: “Takers”

5 Aug

Admittedly, crime dramas are not my favorite kind of movie. I’m one of those chicks who actually LIKE chick-flicks.

But I occasionally make exceptions…for sexy men. Case in point, the movie Takers, opening later this month.

First of all, Idris Elba? That’s enough to get me in the theater. Throw in Michael Ealy and Hayden Christensen (who I’ve had a thing for since the Stars Wars prequels) and it’s  a done deal!

The cast of cuties is rounded out by Jay Hernandez, Paul Walker, and musicians turned actors Chris Brown and Tip “T.I.” Harris.

Whether or not this movie is any good remains to be seen. But it gets serious points for the eye candy!

BTW… This month, Idris Elba tops Ebony Magazine’s list of 10 Sexiest Summer Stars! Was there ever a doubt?

This went up yesterday and made its circuit around the blogosphere but it looks too amazing not to post so check it out here.

If you haven’t heard about it yet, director Spize Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation)  worked with writer Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius, You Shall Know Our Velocity) on the film adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s children’s book classic, Where the Wild Things Are.
The film hits theaters October 16.

8:00pm –
SITTIN’ ON A MILLION (2008, 26 minutes) presents these stories in all their contradictory glory, alongside vintage erotica, reenactments, and street performances asks us to consider the role of memory and imagination in creating history, and reminds us about all those ordinary, extraordinary people erased from the official record.

Bernice Perry: Queen of Sinatraland (2008, 17 minutes)
Bernice Perry is an 83 year-old songwriter who has been producing her own public access television show for 37 years. Her life and work, inspired by Frank Sinatra has a haunting quality that forces us to ask questions about definitions of celebrity, nostalgia, and reality.
