Zombieland: Double Tap – Film Review

I cannot overstate how much I love the original Zombieland. I have watched it on DVD so many times. I was thrilled when the sequel was originally announced and that turned into dread as the release drew closer as I just didn’t want it to be pants. Sadly, Zombieland: Double Tap isn’t a patch on the original.

The LEGO Batman Movie: Film Review

After the success of The LEGO Movie it really wasn’t much of a surprise that they created a spin-off although I wasn’t all that fussed about it being centred around Batman. We have seen him a lot and I didn’t really know what else could be done with his story, but I was wrong and this film really works.

Top Five: Film Review

Top Five is brilliant – so hilarious, meta, and well observed and proves just how talented Chris Rock is at writing comedy (he also directs here). He stars as comedy movie actor Andre Allen, who was best known for his stand-up work and “Hammy the Bear” cop franchise, but since getting clean and sober he is trying to forge a ‘serious’ acting career with little success.

Big Pics: Rihanna, Rita Ora & Mel B

Rosario Dawson

How hot does Rosario look for this shoot for GQ?! It’s crazy to think that she was dating director Danny Boyle, who she met on the set of Trance as they seemed so mismatched. I feel a bit sad now they have broken up though.

Mel B

Is Mel naked?! She looks like she’s revealing her bottom to her neighbours from the balcony! Crazy lady. Why did she want to upload this to Instagram?!

Rihanna

Rihanna celebrated “Happy Pot Smoking Day” by hanging out with her pals. Knowing Ri loves herself some marijuana, her fans at the Fort Lauderdale show in Florida baked her a cake to celebrate the occasion.

I love the cake! She wrote on Twitter: “What did I do to deserve the epicness that is my fans??!!!”  She then proceeded to spark up next to the cake and upload a pic of that!

Rita Ora

How crazy does Rita look in this shoot?! Those boots go up so high! She wears a number of odd fashion choices for her shoot with US Elle magazine. It’s great to see her getting noticed over there. I love the cover- it so funny.

Rosario Dawson opens up about Danny Boyle split

It was one of the weirdest relationships in showbiz so it was no surprise when rumours emerged that Rosario Dawson and Danny Boyle had split up.

The pair ignored each other during the press tour of Trance, a movie which Danny directed and Rosario starred in. They seemed fine with each other at the London premiere though, so there was some doubt about the state of their romance. The 33-year-old confessed during a shoot with net-a-porter.com that they have indeed parted ways.

She said: “It’s not like we announced our relationship, so it’s not like we’re going to announce our breakup.”

Rosario first talked about her romance with Boyle in October 2012 to Access Hollywood, admitting that she made the first move after shooting of Trance was over.

She said, “From the outside it looks like there’s a lot of dissimilarities, but we actually have a lot in common. We’re really similar people. He’s a very kind man. It was just one of those things where we were going to just go our separate ways had someone not said something.”

Although they began dating after finishing off the movie, we only saw picture evidence when they were spotted on holiday in the Caribbean over new year. I was shocked, along with many others, as they seemed so different.

Despite the split, she still heaps praise onto Danny, revealing that they first met years ago rather than on the set of Trance like the papers reported.

She explained: “I met Danny years ago on a project neither of us ended up doing. I don’t always remember meetings, they kind of sometimes disappear. This one I really remembered. The questions he asked, how he guided it, the way he directed me was just so compelling.”

“I love Danny. He’s wonderful and we dated longer than people think we did. When the first photograph of us came out, everyone was like, “That’s when they started dating”. It’s amazing the things people suppose or make up as fact. I respect Danny’s privacy, so it’s not something we really talk about.”

New romance alert: Rosario Dawson & Danny Boyle

This is such an odd combination! I cannot believe my eyes! But it is true and the pictures prove that Danny Boyle is dating US actress Rosario Dawson.

I find it odd because there is a 23-year age gap, she is American and he is English and she is gorgeous and he is, well, not. It just seems like they don’t fit. But obviously, they are very happy together.

Danny Boyle, 56, is most famous for directing 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire and being the main man behind the Olympics Opening Ceremony. Rosario, 33, has been in movies like Sin City, Men in Black II and Percy Jackson.

They met on the set of Trance, a new film starring Rosario and directed by Danny. The drama thriller sees her play a hypnotherapist who ends up in a love triangle with James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel. A release date has not been set as yet.

The new couple saw in the new year in Barbados. I still can’t believe they are together- it is just such a bizarre pairing!!
