Terrorists connected to Al Qaeda have stated that they're planning to release an animation film aimed at recruiting young kids to the militant network. The idea is to educate kids about the history of the group and inspire them to commit acts of terrorism. Stills released have already faced strong criticism. Honestly I'm speechless, disturbing and cunning.
Body Heat is a neo noir thriller directed by Lawrence Kasdan. It stars William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. A somewhat inept lawyer falls for the bored wife of a wealthy businessman and they hatch a plan to murder him and steal his money. But plans go awry for Hurt's character or exactly to plan from his wily lover's perspective. It's moody and atmospheric, full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. The heatwave the town experiences imbues the film with another dimension of intensity and sparks some cracking dialogue. Great supporting roles from Ted Danson and Mickey Rourke. But the film belongs to Turner, she's seductive, masterful and complex.
Kathleen Turner made her movie debut in Body Heat and my what a debut it was. And what a sexy babe Kathleen was! The way she snares William Hurt's deluded character into her web, pursuading him to go to any lengths for the sake of "love" is a masterclass in suggestive manipulation. Butter wouldn't melt. She's the classy, intelligent sexpot who thinks of every eventuality and it's a joy to watch. Meanwhile the element of doom wraps it's hand around Hurt's character's greedy, unscrupulous dick, tightening it's grip bit by bit.
Stupendously talented Singer, songwriter and all around stunning earth goddess Lauryn Hill has just given birth to her sixth child. Congratulations to Lauryn on her new baby boy, I'm sure he's a bundle of joy. But the plot thickens as Rohan Marley (son of THE Bob Marley) isn't the father, although he's the father of her other kids. They've had a complex, tempestous relationship so I guess this isn't that much of a surprise but I wonder who the father is. Maaan I miss her music, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill is one of the greatest albums ever. Lauryn I love you, please please please with a black grape on top release another album.
So Jennifer Aniston, the single woman's poster girl has got a new man. She of strong jaw and tight physique. I thoroughly approve. Anyone who's a fan of Justin's movies knows he's a kooky, charismatic talented actor, screenwriter and director. I first saw him in a couple of David Lynch movies, he's brilliant in Mullholand Drive. Justin Theroux is waaaay more interesting than the types she seems to usually go for, didn't think Jen had it in her. Nice to see her with someone who isn't the usual bland, predicatable arm candy. Justin's sexy, he's also the cousin of British broadcaster Louis Theroux. I love Louis Theroux's documentaries! They're unique, insightful and often hilarious. Anyway, digging Jen's choice of man.

Lenny Kravitz is spectacular. Good grief, papa Kravitz is hot as hell. Are fathers with daughter's Zoe's age supposed to look this good? He's absolutely glorious, I loved his dreads and I love his look now. He's a bonafide rock star with great style, such a sexy man. I'll say it again, Lisa Bonet has fantastic taste in men. How gorgeous is that photo with Lenny, Lisa and Zoe as a baby. I bet a lot of Zoe's female friends fancy her dad. Lenny's also actingand was good in Precious. I think he has some new film/tv projects in the pipeline.
