The London Olympics this summer seem to have created a wave of British fever that’s undeniable. If you’re visiting London for the first time for the Summer Games, you might have a bit of culture shock. That’s where we come in.
In one corner, we have ‘Titanic,’ which just celebrated its 3D re-release this weekend. Not only did Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s performance as star-crossed lovers launch their careers, but it made ‘My Heart Will Go On’ Celine Dion’s biggest hit and Winslet’s least favorite song ever.
In the other, we have ‘The Notebook,’ another love story where a young working-class man, Ryan Gosling, falls in love with a woman of rich descent, Rachel McAdams. Add in disapproving parents, another suitor as competition, and an old couple reading this story as a framing device and you get one of the most celebrated romances in movie history.
Like many, you’re probably headed to the theater this weekend to relive the romance, action and weepy Celine Dion ballads in ‘Titanic 3D.’ The return of one of the biggest motion pictures of all time is also a chance to return to a simpler time. No, not 1912. We’re talking about 1997.
While you may know former Guns N’ Roses member (and current solo artist) Slash as a guitar god, we here at TheFW appreciate his love for our slithery, scaly friends. The rocker is a longtime fan of snakes, and at one point had over 80 of them in his home. (He gave them up after the birth of his son.) And as our pals at Loudwire recently discovered, he’s also a fan of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl.
Movie titles can be a tricky thing. Sometimes they’re so on-the-nose they’re funny (‘Snakes on a Plane’) and other times they’re so ambiguous they leave us scratching our heads after we leave the theater. (We’re still not sure what an ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ is.)
But perhaps the trickiest genre of movie titles are the ones that promise a delicious experience and fail to deliver. Yes, we’re talking about movies that sound like they should be about food, but are about different subjects entirely.
Whitney Houston‘s death left a behind a trail of iconic songs and performances that defined a generation, warmed our hearts and just made us ‘Wanna Dance With Somebody.’ As we look back at the life of this world-renown diva who set the standard of singing for all those who followed, these 10 hits almost immediately come to mind.
With the Oscar nominations just announced, you’re probably wondering who will win The Razzies, the awards which honors the worst in the year in film. While the Razzie nominations won’t be announced until Oscar weekend (the dubious awards will be handed out on April Fool’s Day this year), we have some predictions for who could be taking home a Golden Raspberry trophy this year.
In one corner, we have the vampires from ‘Underworld Awakening,’ who not only possess enhanced speed and strength, but also know how to shoot up the place and look really cool leaping off of tall buildings.
In the other, we have the vampires from the ‘Twilight Saga,’ whose bodies are hard like diamonds, whose bites unleash pent-up stocks up venom that burns their victims, and whose skin sparkles in the day light.
In one corner, we have Starbucks, the coffee conglomerate that brought the urban coffee shop vibe to people all around the world. All people have to do is look for that green, wavy-haired mermaid to get their caffeine fix.
In the other, we have Dunkin’ Donuts, the coffee brand that “America runs on” and has been around since the first Massachusetts location opened in 1950. It’s not just the location for great coffee, but great donuts, too!
