Lovely Kate Beckinsale joins Kevin Nealon on his new YouTube series where he takes celebrities on a hike. She’s as charming as ever, and Kevin adds some funny bits even as he’s breathing heavily throughout the entire video. It seems like a take on Seinfeld’s car interview series. It’s worth checking out just to see Kate . . .
Here’s a great TED talk by Rob Legato, creator of movie effects so good they (sometimes) trump the real thing. The stuff on “Apollo 13” and “Titanic” is pretty amazing, and he discusses “Hugo” as well.
“Homeland” has won the award for Best Drama Series two years in a row, while Claire Danes and Damian Lewis won for best actress and best actor. It’s a pretty incredible show, even with the elevated craziness of Season 2. And while I don’t think it’s quite as good as “Breaking Bad” it’s hard to argue with these choices.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, the critics and fans both agree that “Argo” is an excellent film. Ben Affleck is pretty proud of the film, as he should be. It’s also very timely with Iran being in the news so much.
