Mickey Mouse is now Hulk's Father

In what should be bigger news, Disney is making a 4 BILLION dollar offer to buy Marvel. Disney calls it "quality branded content". Can we be so sure?

Will Marvel just be a cash cow subsidiary of Disney or will Disney, Disneyfy Marvel with less character in their characters shunning violent content and dictating story lines.

Disney is well known for creative freedom but within their guidelines which in reality is not true creative freedom, it's just a cordoned off play-ground in which to operate. If that theology is forced on Marvel characters and stories, then the characters we see now will become bland and dull by comparison to the stories in the past.

Disney's representative on the deal Robert Iger was happy to announce, "We believe that adding Marvel to Disney's unique portfolio of brands provides significant opportunities for long-term growth and value creation," conspicuously absent was the reassurance that the Marvel property would retain it's integrity.

Disney stands to gain over 5000 Marvel characters and the intellectual Marvel universe in which they live.

Should The U.S. Government Be Able To Turn Off The Internet?

We try not to discuss politics on the PCM Blog, but I think this story rises above it. If you have more than a casual interest in the internet, I hope you are paying attention...

Do you remember, just a few weeks ago what happened in the aftermath of the Iranian election?Hundreds, possibly thousands of protesters died at the hands of their government. Many of us watched a young woman, Neda, die over and over again on youtube. We couldn't do much, an ocean and a continent away, but we knew what happened. Hopefully we'll never forget.

China has protests like that as well. Being even more totalitarian, and with greater access, they have blocked Google, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and Hotmail to stem the word of the protests, as well as the resulting backlash on the protesters.We couldn't watch what happened over there, although most of us guessed.

Totalitarian states do not tolerate dissent.
Although regimes like that will (and did) stop the outside world from getting much news of the events via the internet, these countries do not have the e-connection that we do in this country. They still read papers 'over there,' although the news is often written by the government.
The majority of Americans now get news online. Whether it's Daily Kos, The Drudge Report, Fox News or the Huffington Post, we have access to information. We may agree with what is presented, and we may not, but we have that freedom.

In the United States, we have THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH - This includes the press, your voice, your letters, snail mail, magazines and books. This freedom includes your blogs, your e-mails and your access to them. Nobody has the right to take that away from you. It was the very first thing clarified when our constitution was written:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

If George Bush, Ronald Reagan or Richard Nixon had taken steps to "turn off" the press - our voices, our opinions, our communications, our outcry, I expect would be heard around the world.
We can argue about abortion. We can argue whether Reagan, Clinton, Bush or Obama are the anti-christ. That's the point, we can argue.

But our government is taking steps to take that right and freedom away from us, specifically, "in an emergency."

I have yet to find anyone who says that any "emergency" would ever be the time to shut off the free press and communication. If we were invaded from above or afar, plagued, or raptured, we would still have the right to know what was going on, and not neccessarily just from government sources.

Not this president, not the last president, not the next president should hold this power over the American people.

We can all argue about anything, but we have to speak together, Liberals and Conservatives, loudly, on this issue, or none of us may be heard from again.

Twilight Inspired By Blue October

Twilight series author Stephanie Meyer, has confessed, in a new exclusive video from E! News, that Blue October was the inspiration for her book New Moon.

Blue October’s new album Approaching Normal on iTunes:

Fall 2009's Newest Accessory?

Stacy Haiduk showed up to the Daytime Emmy Awards Sunday night carrying a new kind of clutch. This purse is made out of once living material, but it isn't crocodile or leather... it's straight feline. Haiduk, a star on The Young and The Restless, took a page from her character's script and brought her dead cat prop out on the red carpet.

Haiduk posed with the animal bag or "purssy" for photographers while hamming it up. She was all smiles while her dead cat's eyes glared off in the distance. PETA is going to have a field day over this woman!

It is unclear whether this cat was taxidermy or synthetic. Either way, what would inspire someone to tote a real/fake dead animal around all night? Did she have to stash that under her seat at the awards ceremony? Or did she pet it on her lap and offer it catnip? Who knows.

Chris Brown suffers from girlfriend beating amnesia

During his interview with Larry King Wednesday night, Chris Brown admitted to not remembering the incident where he brutalized then girlfriend Rihanna. Brown stated that his behavior doesn't reflect "who I am as a person". Brown, dressed in a baby blue sweater with a coordinating dark blue bow tie, looked innocent and youthful flanked by his mother, Joyce Hawkins, and his lawyer, Mark Geragos.

His vain attempts to look like a nice guy after his domestic violence case culminated is comparable to the Menendez brothers wearing pastel shirts at their parent's murder trial in 1989. Looking like a J.Crew model doesn't excuse violent behavior. One can only hope that Chris Brown is genuine in his apologies to Rihanna and that he will get the help he needs in dealing with anger management.

Cat Fighting Breaks up the Pussy Cat Dolls

The band has broke up over what is being called 'jealousy' over Nicole Scherzinger. Attention has being foisted on Nicole as the front and the other girls jealousy took its toll. With song's listed as "Featuring Nicole Scherzinger" other members were reported as wanting to kill her.

Some comments have surfaced from members like Kimberly Wyatt's who states "The girls and I have just finished our huge world tour and are taking a break from a band and doing our own thing."

The band formed in 2003. We are sure they'll be back. What else can they do? Look for our next story in six or eight months where the girls gush over each other and how they put all their past differences behind them.

Noel Gallagher Quits Oasis

We've all come to roll our eyes whenever brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher get into a tiff, but it seems like this time was the last straw for Noel, who has left their band Oasis. On the band's website, Noel left this statement: "It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."

The band have had a rough tour this summer with several canceled shows and Liam abruptly leaving the stage, and this latest disagreement between the brothers allegedly ended up in a fist fight before their performance at Paris' Rock En Seine festival, causing them to cancel the show just minutes before they were due to appear.

Liam has claimed that Oasis will continue without Noel. Noel has notoriously quit the band before, but he might actually be gone for good this time.

Brad Renfo's Last Interview Surfaces

Brad Renfro died in 2008 (Jan 15) at the age of 25 of a heroin overdose. Brad started acting at age 10 and had a promising career in the 1990's. While in recent years he wasn't as popular as Lindsay Lohan or Britney, he too lost his way and eventually lost the battle with drugs. His last movie "The Informers" was released in 2009 while it was filmed in 2007.

Sadly in this last interview which surfaced just recently on youtube by a user named Jay (film maker/director), Brad speaks painfully of how Hollywood and the lifestyle so many think is acceptable will ruin you.

Once a very attractive young man, you can see Brad is a bloated and worn shell of what he once was.

The interview shot in 2007 changes from upbeat to somber and then haunting as he forecasts his own fate: "A lot of people don't make it. They don't live through it." It's sad that he gave such strong advice and was trapped by his own demons.

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Engaged

"The Office" golden couple Jim and Pam are engaged, and so are the actors that play them - except not to each other. Just months following Jenna Fischer's engagement to writer Lee Kirk, John Krasinski popped the question to "The Devil Wears Prada" actress Emily Blunt. The two have been dating since November 2008, and previously Krasinski has dated actresses Renee Zellweger and Rashida Jones, while Blunt had a three-year relationship with singer Michael Buble. Krasinski's rep has confirmed the happy news for the couple, but we're sure girls across the country have gone into a collective state of mourning.

Single Molecule Photographed...

Scientists from IBM have managed a first! And PCM is here to bring it to you... A first ever photo of a single molecule's internal atoms!

Featured above is a pentacene molecule. These things are ferocious! I mean... look at it! From within you can clearly see... um OK you can see there are 22 carbon atoms and 14 hydrogen atoms. To put it all in perspective, the space between each ring is about one million times smaller than a single grain of sand.

Now if only they could get it in focus!
Below is what the model of the molecule looks like. I'd swear they just took a picture of the model out of focus. I mean look at it. The photo even has the little bars connecting the atoms. So now when you see a model, you'll know that is really what things look like. Go figure. Class dismissed.

Fashion Night Out

FYI. It's a perfectly worthy cause, but I'd kill just for the accessories seen in the prommo video.

Venezuela's Violent Video Game Outlaw Plan

Venezuela is worse off than we thought. First Hugo Chavez, now this... The country plans to outlaw ..not just ban or label games... but outright outlaw them because it believes the cause of violence in the country is video games.

With dozens of people murdered in the capital Caracas each week, the legislature doesn't think that overhauling the infrastructure of the city is the solution. More police can't help, but banning violent video games will. Moreover with police in the country dispatching false statistics on violence, the reality is the country has no idea of how to govern itself.

The bill has cleared one hurdle and now has to pass a vote in the National Assembly, then to be signed by none other than Hugo Chavez. Let's check in a year later on the stats after this bill becomes law.

Meanwhile the world really should take notice of Venezuela if for no other reason than a good laugh.

Photo of Christina Milian Getting Twisted

What in the mangled mess?????!!!! Singer/actress Christina Milian of Bring it On movie fame was spotted arriving at her New York City hotel sans her fiance music producer The Dream and her bleached-blonde frontal hair color. (The brunette is sooooo much better on her by the way). But since this is a jewelry blog, let's refocus on her necklace shall we? While it may appear that Milian may have just gotten fed up and rocked the necklace in all of it's entangledness in the first photo, take a gander at the second one. Same necklace. Totally different look. Let's just get real. Multi-strand necklaces are all the rage these days (I can't get enough of them. plug.plug. http://www.cityrockajewelry.necklaces.html/) but they do sometimes get intertwined. The quick fix involves the use of a simple coat hanger. Hang one end of your necklace on one, give it a shake and proceed to straighten the strands. Oh, and when you're done, don't just chuck it back into your jewelry drawer, hang it up so you won 't have to stress about it again. I know, I know. I'm an accessory goddess source and you can't stop wanting to thank me. I get it all the time.

DJ AM Found Dead in New York

Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM has been found dead in his New York City apartment. The cause of death at this time is unspecified, however multiple sources are coming forward to reveal that prescription pill bottles and drug paraphernalia were discovered close to the body. It appears that DJ AM may have been dead for a few days, as his body was only discovered after a friend who had not heard from him went over to the apartment to check up and when they received no answer at the door proceeded to call the authorities.

Multiple celebrities are taking to their Twitter accounts to mourn the loss of their dear friend and talented musician. DJ AM's last Twitter update was posted on Tuesday afternoon and contained a line from a Grandmaster Flash song "New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems."

Our thoughts are with his family and friends as this story continues to develop.

Official - Robbie Williams Is The Greatest Superstar Of All Time.

Robbie Williams has been named music’s greatest superstar of all time, according to MTV.

Oddly enough, in America, he's a footnote, something about being the New British Elvis. Kind of like Brazil's Gilberto Gil, without the staying power.

I haven't seen that this poll was researched anywhere outside of the U.K. and I'm just not sure it is actually "news" outside of the U.K. and possibly small sections of eastern Europe. The singer almost cracked the American Top 40 Chart in 1999, with 'Angel.'

Williams, who hasn’t released a song since 2007, topped this poll by MTV, beating his former bandmates Take That and the late ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson, proving he still has a strong following.

A source said: “This proves that Robbie is still a superstar in many people’s minds.”
Who was the source? His manager?

Other acts in the MTV Top Ten Superstar List include The Killers, Girls Aloud, The Prodigy. Beyonce Knowles, The Pussycat Dolls and Oasis also made the top Ten.

Of All Time?!?

I'll give them Michael and Beyonce, but aside from the Killers' lead singer, Brandon Flowers, I don't think that anyone in America, or the rest of planet earth would agree with the rest of this list.

1 – Robbie Williams
2 – Take That
3 – Michael Jackson
4 – The Killers
5 – Girls Aloud
6 – The Prodigy
7 – Red Hot Chilli Peppers
8 – Beyonce Knowles
9 – The Pussycat Dolls
10 – Oasis

The 'news' comes at a great time for Robbie as he launches his new album ‘Reality Killed the Video Star’ being released later this year, produced by Trevor Horn, one of the two guys in THE BUGGLES, best known for Video Killed The Radio Star, coincidentally the first video played on MTV.

'Hills' Star Vs. 'Girls Gone Wild' Founder in Brawl

There's never a dull moment in Hollywood. Joe Francis, 'Girls Gone Wild' founder, and Brody Jenner, a star from 'The Hills', got into a hard-core fight at a L.A. nightclub. Jenner and girlfriend, Jayde Nicole were celebrating Brody's birthday at the nightclub Guys and Dolls. While there, they saw Francis hitting on a close friend. Nicole confronted Francis where they then began arguing. It heated up when Jayde threw a drink in Francis' face.

Jenner claims, that Francis then attacked Brody's girlfriend. When security arrived, Francis tried heading for the exit. Brody found Joe outside and began punching him before an individual used a taser on Jenner. Francis fled the seen and the police are currently searching for him, and Nicole is pressing charges.

Megan Fox NOT Catwoman in new Batman Flick

Megan Fox will not be starring in the next Batman movie. There is no script yet, according to PCM's sources.

Reports surfaced earlier this week, including PCM, claiming the screen hottie was set to play Catwoman in the sequel to last year’s blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight’, directed by Christopher Nolan.

Although Warner Brothers has confirmed there will be a third film in the current movie series based on the DC comic book created by Bob Kane in 1939, they are made it very clear that no casting decisions have been made. A representative for the studio said: "It's a rumour. It's not true. There is no script. There is no project to be cast in."

Although bosses are denying Megan is set to take the role of the feline fatale – played by Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry is previous big screen outings – it is believed Christian Bale will reprise his role as Batman and his alter-ego Bruce Wayne, while Sir Michael Caine will return as his loyal butler Alfred. Other stars linked to the unscripted, unplotted project include Johnny Depp, who was rumoured to be portraying The Joker, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was said to be line to play The Penguin.

Simon Cowell Has a Nice Side

American Idol and X Factor judge Simon Cowell was determined to buy the perfect birthday present for Alexandra Burke - who found fame after winning the UK TV talent show X Factor last year - and knew she had her eyes on a padded black Chanel handbag.

Even though the pricey accessory has a year-long waiting list, Simon managed to charm his way to the top.

Alexandra, who turned 21 on Tuesday, was speechless when Simon presented her with the gift.

"Alex was in tears," a source said. "Simon called in a few favors to make her day extra special. Things just couldn't be better for her."

The other X Factor judges - Cheryl Cole, who was Alexandra's mentor on the show, and Dannii Minogue - also splashed out on lavish gifts for the singer.

Cheryl treated her to a vacation at the Constance Lemuria resort in the Seychelles, while Dannii gave her a gray Tabitha bag.

Alexandra had a number one Christmas hit on the UK singles chart after appearing on the show, with her cover of 'Hallelujah'.

Her new single 'Bad Boys', which features rapper Flo Rida, will be out on October 12.

Jackson Brothers Get a Reality Show Deal

I guess A&E couldn't help themselves. Where they see Jacksons, they see gold. It has officially been announced that a new reality series, called The Jackson Family Dynasty starring Michael Jackson's brothers such as, Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, and Tito has started filming.

Details about the show remain scarce. It has not been made known when the show will premiere, how many episodes it will have, or if any footage of Michael will be included. Looks like they all are wasting no time in taking advantage of the limelight from their brother Michael's death.

Lindsay Lohan Hints Sex Tape Stolen

OK, there is no other way to put it. Lindsay Lohan's home break-in this week seems to have been an inside job and seems to revolve around a sex tape and not a traditional robbery.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to parse these words into what she really meant in a tweet posted though Lindsay's personal twitter account: "things that a certain old friend knew meant a lot to me" were taken. A safe full of items was stolen. Sources believe scandalous documents and most likely videos are part of the booty.

Meanwhile LAPD investigators believe they have their suspects in their sights. With video surveillance recordings in hand, they are now looking for one male and two females ages 18 to 25. They entered Lohan's home through an unlocked door entering a court yard at approximately 1:10 am Sunday morning. According to police the suspects covered their faces with scarves.

Leslie Sloane-Zelnik, Lohan's spokesperson commented: "personal belongings were taken without remorse." It appears whomever hit her home, took things of deep affection. We can only hope Lindsay gets her personal keepsakes back.

Meanwhile in a stunning move of modern police work, the LAPD has released video of the break on on YouTube, if you know these people the LAPD want to hear from you.

Megan Fox to play Catwoman

Megan Fox has reportedly signed on to play villainness Catwoman in the sequel to The Dark Knight. The film, directed by Christopher Nolan, is due for release in 2011. The sequel will also star Christiane Bale and Michael Caine.

Apparently, Fox's doppelganger Angelina Jolie was in talks for the role. Coincidentally, Fox is allegedly the favorite to take over Jolie's former role as Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider film. We're sure males all around the globe will be eagerly awaiting Fox's appearance in the infamous leather catsuit - once worn by Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry.

Ted Kennedy Dies

Senator Ted Kennedy passed away at the age of 77 on Tuesday night. He was at his home in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts when he lost his year-long battle with brain cancer. The brother of President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, he was one of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S history, elected at the age of 30 in 1962. He was a huge advocate of health care reform, and President Obama recently awarded him the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Kennedy family stated, "We've lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever. He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it."

Steven Seagal ...Not Just Actor Playing A Cop. Turns Out He Is One!

Suddenly Steven Seagal's movies are watchable again. Why? Turns out for 20 years he's been a cop! Not only does he play one in the movies, he is one. How can this be? How did everyone miss this? You can google him, and wiki him. There is no reference to him as a police officer.

Years ago while filming a movie in Louisiana the sheriff of Jefferson Parish asked Seagal to teach his men some martial arts skills. The experience lead to an ongoing relationship in which Seagal was made a full member of the force in Jefferson Parish.

For all these years between films Seagal would return to Jefferson Parish and serve the community without any fanfare or PR. Talk about integrity.

With the onset of reality TV, it seems A&E found out about his work and is featuring him in a show to air this fall: Lawman. Seagal may be making bad films over the past few years, but you can bet this show will be a hit. To see a real life movie star executing the daily tasks of a real police officer will be something to see. For all you doubters, check out the show's A&E trailer below.

Most Dangerous Celebrities

What do Jessica Biel and Brad Pitt have in common? Besides being actors, they are the last two years most dangerous celebrities. Huh you say?

We all google celebrities, some like to find nude shots or compromising photos, even videos. But if you are downloading bit torrents hoping to get a look at celebrities naked or having sex... you are sailing dangerous waters.

Melanie Griffith Goes to Rehab

Hopefully the third time will be the charm for actress Melanie Griffith, who has just started rehab stint #3. Melanie has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction since she was a teenager, so the struggle to stay sober has been a long battle for her. Apparently, alcohol is the reason for this most recent trip to the Cirque Lodge in Utah, but her publicist has only said that "she is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."

However, the rumor is that Antonio Banderas, Melanie's husband of 13 years, was the one who urged her to go get help. A source claims,"The reason Melanie checked in was her husband was demanding that she get clean and sober. He told her that if she didn't get the help she needed it would be the end of their marriage." Despite his frustration with his wife's fall off the wagon, he is still being supportive and visiting her as often has he can while she recovers.

Nick Jonas Wants to be President

Musician Nick Jonas is keen to make the move into politics, and has wanted to serve his country since he was a young child.

“I’ve always said that I would like to be president," Nick said. "It’s kind of my whole thing. I’m starting the campaign now.”

The 16-year-old star also spoke about his struggle with diabetes – a medical condition where the body does not produce enough or respond properly to insulin, and which can lead to renal failure and blindness - saying he wants to raise awareness of the condition.

He explained to CNN show ‘The Situation Room’: “I’m here to basically raise awareness and encourage people to continue to do what they can to raise awareness as well in their own circle and on a broader scale," he explained on the CNN show 'The Situation Room.'

“Obviously, we’ve made some advances in technology to better manage our diabetes, but we’re hoping for a cure one day, and that’s what the main goal is.”

Murder! Jackson's Death Ruled Homicide.

Michael Jackson's death has been determined by Los Angeles police as a homicide by way of sworn affidavit to search Jackson's doctors offices in Houston Texas. You may recall last month that Jackson's doctor was the center of LA Police's investigation surrounding Jackon's death.

According to the L.A. coroner's affidavit, "Jackson's cause of death was due to lethal levels of propofol." The corner explicitly classified Jackson's death a homicide. Dr. Conrad Murray is referenced in the search warrant and affidavit as admitting he administered Jackson with with the drug in question tying him directly to Jackson's death.

Charges against Jackon's doctor Conrad Murray are sure to follow, the question is when.

Lindsay Lohan Robbed

Lindsay Lohan returned to her L.A home at around 3 a.m Sunday morning and found it had been broken into and ransacked. According to her mother, Dina Lohan, "The safe was ripped out of the wall, and the door was off the hinges and door handles removed. Bags, shoes and jewelry were taken, too." Shaken but physically unhurt, Lindsay has decided to pack her remaining things and move to someplace more secure.

Lindsay's father Michael has allegedly hired a private investigator to look into the crime, as he is convinced it was an "inside job" because Lindsay's staff hadn't turned on the security alarm. However, three men were caught on a surveillance camera breaking into the house. Lindsay had a similar situation happen to her earlier this year when there was an attempted break-in at her home, but the alarm went off and scared them away. Los Angeles police are investigating the current incident.

Jessica Simpson Paid a Witch to Curse Tony Romo

Jessica Simpson visited a woman she met on the internet to help her put a curse on ex-boyfriend Tony Romo so that he will not find love again. The football star dumped Jessica last month on the night before her 29th birthday.

“Jessica is normally a really sweet girl, but she still can’t believe Tony callously dumped her," a source told the National Inquirer Magazine.

“She found a woman in California. The two met at the star’s Beverly Hills home where they lit a candle, burned some incense and performed a couple of incantations.”

The scorned singer-and-actress hopes the curse will also affect his career and is waiting to see the outcome of his next game on September 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Meanwhile, Jessica has been seen getting friendly with football star Colt Brennan – a Washington Redskins quarterback and rival of Tony’s. She has even been sent one of his team's shirts to wear.

Murder Suspect Ryan Jenkins Found Dead

"Megan Wants a Millionaire" reality show contestant Ryan Jenkins has been the subject of a massive manhunt this past week, wanted for the murder of his wife, model Jasmine Fiore. The search quickly moved to Jenkins' native Canada, where he was suspected to have fled after his boat was found near the border. On Sunday, police received a call from The Thunderbird Motel, located in the isolated town of Hope, regarding a dead person found in one of the rooms. Jenkins' body was found hanging from a coat rack by a belt in an apparent suicide.

The manager claimed that a young woman had checked herself and Jenkins into the motel, paying cash for a three-night stay. He didn't recognize Jenkins' face, and so did not become suspicious of the couple until neither of them checked out of the motel. When the manager and his son went to investigate, they found Jenkins dead, and the woman nowhere to be found. Police are planning to continue the investigation of Fiore's death, as well as starting an investigation of the death of Jenkins.

In a press conference held Sunday, Police Lt. Steve Holiday expressed his sentiments that "the sadness of this all is that Mr. Jenkins will not stand before an Orange County jury for his crime."

PCM Movie Review: Inglorious Basterds

There was no holding back when it comes to Quentin Tarantino's new film, Inglorious Basterds. The movie was set in Nazi-occupied France during World War II, where a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which then is targeted by the soldiers.

Basterds is bold, brutal, and humorous. This movie obviously portrayed how Tarantino thought WWII should have ended, so if you were expecting an accurate historical depiction, don't. The movie's ending suggests that the power of films should have been a factor in ending the war. With the addition of "The Bastards" being jewish soldiers, you felt the taste of sweet revenege as the movie ended. The film had rich music with definable characters. Brad Pitt was out in full force as Lt. Aldo, who obviously enjoyed his work, and Christoph Waltz sent a shiver down my spin as the heartless Col. Landa. Tarantino presents Hitler and Goebbels as jokes who didn't deserve to be feared. From the mispelled words, to the film that's obviously in a genre of its own, Tarantino blatantly says, love me or hate me.

YOU Are Out.

Here's the question of the day. Guess what leggy Vicky-secret model has been forced to say Auf Wiedersehen (owf-vee-der-sehn) to her well-liked burgeoning jewelry line?I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you guessed correctly. Yep. Heidi Klum.Word has it that the popular lingerie strutter was business linked with a partner who wasn't savvy enough to keep their budding Home Shopping Network venture going. But wait, this is where it gets gangsta. Paris jeweler big-wiggs Van Cleef & Arpels accused the Supermodel of jacking their clover motif and staked their claim in a lawsuit. Somehow, I'm convinced that Klum won't be glum about if for too long. She's still got that strapping, crooning, stallion of a husband to console her and let's not forget the hit show Project Runway TV that she hosts. By the way, it airs on Lifetime on Thursday August 20, 2009 @ 8:00 PM, and I'm simply svittzzing at the thought. The Fab clothes. All the wish-list chunky runway accessories.I've got just the fix to cool myself. Mhmm.It's going down tonight as I plunk myself on my mod sofa,front and center to the tv. Thanks in advance to a man who may not be from Germany like Heidi, but he does incidentally share a border with her. This Polish male homosapien's name is one you won't ever be able to guess---It's Reuben Mattus, and what he created in vanilla-Swiss almond Haagen Daz ice-cream is--- pure genius.

Grandma Swagger

It all started with the mound of still shiny, but broken beaded necklace pictured above. My grandmother Jane had passed away. It sparked this liberating blog entry. To say that I felt a huge loss after her death was an understatement. I. was. totally. devastated. I think I admired my grandmother so much because I never saw her break under pressure. With a cool confidence, she spearheaded the home and family, solving every one's problems. And then she would cook. No matter what. Massive meals that make me wonder if she had a Super-woman woman cape hanging in the closet with her Floral house dresses. Her meals (and home-brewed coffee) could rival any top chef. I was in my early twenties when she passed, and though I had tucked away lots of wonderful memories with her in my mind, I couldn't get past the single bad one of not having her with me anymore. No more warm grandma hugs. No more long talks with the elder who never grew tired of listening to what I had to say. And no more seeing her bursting out in a fit of chuckles while watching Johnny Carson on her bedroom TV set in her pj's. I suppose that's when the understanding was forced upon me that these things happen. People are born, but one day they do die. The realization definitely brought out a different behavior in me. I began going through the motions of life, without appreciating the life in me. Too many people have died that I was close to since then. But I won't digress...Anyway, one Saturday afternoon, as I was scavenging through my jewelry box in search of an earring back, I came across it;the broken beaded necklace. It was given to my by my aunt in remembrance of my Grandmother. The clasp was gone and the chain link was severed due to my neglect, but somehow it still shined like the day she'd gifted it to me. Not that it mattered. It was mixed in with my junk jewelry because to me it had become just that--- junk.I'd chosen to totally disassociate the necklace from my grandmother Jane because she'd died, and to me, no necklace could be a substitute. I came across it again a few years later. It still shined. And I was amazed. I knew that the pearls weren't real and the stones weren't worth anything. It was costume jewelry, but somehow it was up for standing the test of time. I put in some TLC and revamped it back to what it should be. Wearable.It's a coveted staple as an accessory, paired with almost any of my wardrobe choices. It's a Beautiful Staple. Just as my grandmother was. I finally get the connection. Grandma, you'll always be a Celebrity to me. Unquestionably, that's why you made the cut on my Celebrity Jewelry Blog.

PCM Movie Review: District 9

The alien invasion thriller is pretty well-worn territory: evil, ill-tempered aliens invade Earth, but humans (usually freedom-touting Americans with fancy machinery) prevail and mankind is saved. If you were expecting District 9 to be just another Independence Day-esque action film, well, think again. District 9 introduces an entirely new way of viewing extra-terrestrial visitors, as well as close-to-home commentary on human nature.

Set in Johannesburg, South Africa, District 9 is a documentary-style film that examines the arrival of aliens to Earth twenty years prior. Through a series of "interviews" with civilians, we learn that the aliens - nicknamed"prawns" - have been forced to integrate with human society, but are met with much prejudice and hardship, confined to a slum called District 9. An organization called the Multi-National United (MNU) strictly controls the lives of prawns, and is led by our insensitive and kind of clueless protagonist, Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), who shows very little regard for the well-being of the aliens. However, an accident involving a suspicious alien device found in one of the prawns' shacks leaves Wikus with nowhere to turn but to the very creatures he once treated with so little respect. It is then that he learns firsthand about the shockingly cruel treatments the aliens must endure, leading to a climax that will surely have you on the edge of your seat.

District 9 features seamless CGI and an incredible performance by newcomer Sharlto Copley. You'll be surprised by which characters you empathize with as the storyline progresses in a not-so-subtle reference to apartheid. It's an unexpected gem of a film, one that I'd highly recommend seeing.

Stephanie Meyers Officially Being Sued

Stephanie Meyers is having a rough month. She first was handed a cease-and-desist order for Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the Twilight series. Now, Meyers is being sued on grounds of plagiarism of another novel. According to to TMZ, author, Jordan Scott claims, "Breaking Dawn" shows "striking, articulable and substantial" similarities to Scott's "The Nocturne," in "plot lines, themes, dialogue, mood, setting, pace, characters, sequence of events [and] ideas."

Hachette Book Group, Meyer's publisher stated that the suit is "completely without merit and simply a publicity stunt to further Ms. Scott's career. It is indisputable that Ms. Meyer's 'Breaking Dawn' was based on her original 'Twilight' sequel 'Forever Dawn,' which Meyer wrote in the fall of 2003 and registered with the U.S. Copyright Office on January 5, 2004. That is nearly two years before Ms. Scott allegedly posted portions of her novel on the Internet and approximately five years before Ms. Scott filed her copyright in September 2008."

Is this legit or just a pathetic attempt for attention. There are many differences between Scott and Meyer's books. Although Meyer's books are best-sellers worldwide, and Scott's books barely stocked in bookstores. How will this end? Will Meyer's books be pulled off of shelves as Scott's suit asks for damages. All I can say is interesting timing for the suit. I'm pretty sure Breaking Dawn has been out for a while.

'Megan Wants a Millionaire' Contestant a Killer

When happened to background checks and screenings of reality show contestants? Ryan Jenkins, a contestant from VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire, is charged with the murder of former swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore, his wife.

Ryan Jenkins is an animal, what he has done to Jasmine is unspeakable and it's just not right and I'd appreciate your help."

Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney told People, "At this time, although we believe he crossed the border, we're not one hundred percent sure of that," U.S. Marshal Chief Inspector Thomas Hession said. "There will be no stone unturned and we'll look under every rock for him."

Brad & Angelina a Fraud?

Now Magazine is claiming Brad Pitt and Angelina are not the happy couple they seem. Despite Brad's comments about how he and Angelina have sex under a waterfall in their backyard etc... the prevailing thought is that these two are not in marital bliss.

How does Now come to this conclusion? Most recently at Canne's the couple worked the room separately. And... a unknown source claimed the couple had an argument hours earlier. Now claims the cause is that Angelina is the jealous type and insisted Brad not pose with his co-star for the film they he is promoting (Inglorious Basterds) Diane Kruger.

Here is my take as a PCM writer that was also once married to a drop dead gorgeous woman. One, arguments happen. And yes, the most attractive women are usually the most insecure and get wound up easy. But what really gives this this story legs in my opinion as a fact finding writer, is that most Hollywood marriages come tumbling down right when we all think they are the most safe and secure. Could we all be on the cusp of a bombshell break-up between Brad and Angelina?

If so, that wow! Brad's countless quotes in the past year will really make him a fool. From claiming Angelina as a soul mate to his stories of how happy he is with the mixed family, every word he's quoted will make him a fraud on a stellar level.

It's a break-up I've sensed was coming a for a long time. Angelina is well beyond high maintenance, she's required Brad an Alpha male if you've ever seen one to follow her lead in life. From politics, human rights and family values. Brad is your prototypical man's man that has lived the "Fight Club" lifestyle before meeting up with Angelina. Bottom line is these two are combustible and have yet to ignite. If they are for real, Brad has give up his own life for Angelina's and that's noble, but in the history of mankind it seems that sooner or later true colors come out. How long will Brad play Angelina's tune?

Let's all admit to what we speculate. Angelina is a "B" on wheels and Brad is a guy that historically doesn't take crap from a woman. No matter how hot she is on the outside, it's what is on the inside that a counts. How long will Brad be "Brad-handled"?

If they break up, that will be the key reason why, but you may not read it in media. Until then you can just watch and see if Brad and Angelina are a fraud.

David Copperfield Accused of Sexual Assault

Magician David Copperfield has been accused of attacking a 22-year-old fashion model when she was a guest on his private island in the Bahamas in 2007, according to a federal lawsuit.

The unnamed woman alleges she met David during one of his shows in January 2007 and was then invited to his holiday home in July of that year. She claims David "attacked her and sexually assaulted her" while threatening to kill her if she did not submit to what he wanted.

The woman claims she was assaulted by David two more times on the island before he returned home and reported the incidents to Seattle police.

Copperfield's lawyers say she has fabricated the incidents.

"This woman, who filed the lawsuit, has a history of lying... She has lied to law enforcement before and, as a result, had innocent people arrested based on a false accusation... she is incapable of telling the truth," a statement from his lawyers said.

“This lawsuit is extortion for money, plain and simple. Unfortunately, false claims like this only hurt the women who really have been abused, women who really need our help."

Robert Pattinson Claims He's Still Single

Listen up Twilighters, pretty much all summer we have been hearing that the hottest vampire out there, Robert Pattinsion is dating co-star, Kristen Stewart. By the looks of the cozy snap shots of two, seems pretty true. Although, from Robert Pattinson's lips to the media's ears, Pattinson told the Daily Mirror, "I don't have a girlfriend. I don't know why."

Pattinson continued stating, "You always think you're going to get more girls after you've made a movie and it never happens. You sit there and you're like, 'I'm a big movie star and I want to go out with some models'. But I don't know why that doesn't happen."

Pattinson explained, "It's especially different in LA. Most of the women there are actresses and by default that makes them a little bit nuts – not that that's a bad thing. But I don't really have a type." If Robert is lying about his relationship with Stewart to throw the media off, he's doing a good job. Also, what girl would not want to date Pattinson?

For Sale: The Afterlife with Marilyn Monroe

The economy must be bad if people are willing to pimp out spots next to their famous dead spouse in order to make some fast cash. A crypt above Marilyn Monroe's own crypt has been put ip for sale, and looking at from a per square foot view it's one of the most expensive places on the real estate market!

According to L.A. Times, Richard Poncher, deceased entrepreneur owns the grave above Monroe. His widow has placed the crypt on sale to pay off the $1.6 million mortgage she owes on her Beverly Hills home. The asking price for the crypt you may be wondering... a astonishing $4.5 million!

Poncher's wife placed the crypt for sale on Ebay. In the ad she writes, "Here is a once in a lifetime and into eternity opportunity to spend your eternal days directly above Marilyn Monroe... [It] is being vacated so as to make room for a new resident." Poncher claims she wants be debt-free when she dies for her children. So is the sale of the crypt is inappropriate or genius? You be the judge.

Bruce Willis Browses Multi-Million Dollar Apartment and Celebrates Daughter's Birthday

Actor Bruce Willis and his model wife Emma Heming have been seen viewing Los Angeles' exclusive Carlyle Residences, a 24-story building which includes properties priced between $2.9 and $15 million.

It is believed that the couple have been looking at a three bedroom, four bathroom property - equipped with gym, library, dining room and wine cellar - which is priced around $5.1 million.

After looking at the apartment, Bruce and Emma traveled to Las Vegas to celebrate his daughter Rumer's 21st birthday.

The party was held at a Tao restaurant and nightclub on Saturday night (8/15/09) and was followed by a meal at Bruce's own Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino's Koi restaurant the following day.

At the party Rumer said that she had not received any presents yet, but mentioned that her dad has given her some of the worst and best presents over the years.

"I had always wanted a dog and my dad came home one day and he had something wrapped up in a towel," Rumer said. "He was just holding it and we were talking in the kitchen for a good 10 minutes or so and he just said, 'Oh here, can you hold this for me?' And it was a puppy. That was probably the best."

"My dad also once got me a statue of a little girl reaching over a pond. I opened it and I just kind of looked at him and I was like, 'I don't really understand it but, you know, I'm happy to take it.' "

Batman Three Begins

Director Chris Nolan of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight has dropped out of pre-production on the film The Prisoner to begin work on the third installment of DC's rebooted franchise Batman.

While this is bad news for The Prisoner fans, it's great news for Batman fans. It assures them Chris Nolan is on board and that he is dedicated to the project in what be the best attempt to cap off a trilogy yet.

You may recall that neither Spider-Man 3 or X-Men 3 offered satisfying movie experiences or closure. While these franchises will go on, most films die at the third film mark. They run out of steam for various reasons from bad writing, to forced continuation or simply no real story to tell. Then again, Batman failed in the past because of overkill. There is plenty for Chris Nolan to learn from in past mistakes. Let's hope he saves the Batman franchise from doom.
So when will get another Batman installment? Interviews with actors in the previous Batman films from Gary Oldman to Morgan Freeman have alluded to 2012 and 2103. Other sources indicate it will be 2011. With Nolan removing himself from The Prisoner to work on Batman at this time, one is lead to believe 2011 is plausible.

Kelly Clarkson is set to return to American Idol

The 'My Life Would Suck Without You' singer, who won the first series of the US TV talent show in 2002, will appear as a guest judge at an audition next week.

A source said: “Kelly is beyond excited to get back to the show that started it all.”
It is also rumored that Kelly and the other current judges, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi, will be joined by one of the Jonas Brothers.

Now that Paula Abdul is apparently forever off the show there are a number famous celebs who are up to taking her spot such as former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, hip-hop artist Mary J. Blige and 'I Kissed a Girl' singer Katy Perry.

The source added: "At this stage it doesn't look like Paula will be replaced by one person. The celebrity judges are working really well for now."

Other stars linked to the guest judge role include Jennifer Lopez and Shania Twain.

Eric Dane Involved in Risque Video Scandal

Word on the street is that Eric Dane, better known as Grey's Anatomy's Dr. Mark Sloane, can be seen in a homemade video posted on Dane appears in the video - sans clothing - with his wife Rebecca Gayheart and friend Kari Ann Peniche, who you might know better as the Miss United States Teen gone wrong. The video, which is about two years old, depicts the inebriated group hanging out naked in a jacuzzi in Peniche's apartment and deciding on their porn names.

The tape was originally 12 minutes long, but was cut to 3 minutes, and was supposed to be deleted by Peniche. It was then allegedly stolen from Peniche's hard drive by her former Celebrity Rehab roommate, Mindy McCready. No lewd acts take place on the tape, but apparently you can see, um, a whole lot of Dr. McSteamy.

Misha Barton Ordered to Lose 10 lbs

We all know the Mischa Barton has been dealing with a lot lately and she seems to be under a lot of pressure. The actress was recently told to lose 10 lbs. for her role as a model in the new television series The Beautiful Life. She was "shocked to tears" when she was given this news.

“She knows that means they are calling her fat behind her back," a source told Britain's Star Magazine. "She knows she is heavier than she needs to be but to hear it like that… it really shook her. How can Mischa play a model when she’s looking so heavy?"

“She’s broken down in tears more than once before shooting. It’s a lot of pressure for someone who is just out of hospital.”

Although she was upset by the news, friends say that Mischa does plan on losing the weight.

“She’s always been able to lose weight fast," the source added. "Everyone knows she’s been struggling, so people are just really rooting for her.”

Just because Mischa is no longer the skin and bones that she once was, she is now considered fat. Don't worry though because she is good at losing weight fast, which must be healthy of course. The young actress just can't seem to catch a break.

Miley Cyrus and Ex-Boyfriend Have Twitter Fight

Teen star Miley Cyrus has been exchanging bitter words with her ex-boyfriend Justin Gaston via Twitter. The 'Hannah Montana' actress split from the underwear model in June after dating for about a year.

Justin began the fued by writing on his page: "People mistake stupidity for bravery way too easily."

Miley soon replied with, "Yeah. I love when people mistake bravery with writing a few stupid tweets trying to make it seem like they don't care. You're afraid to love."

The two have kept in touch after the breakup and Miley appears to still have feelings for Justin.
Last week, she wrote several heartfelt messages for her former boyfriend.
"I am in between happy and sad today," she wrote. "I'm happy because I love you. I'm sad because I can't get enough of you."

Miley and Justin have been very active on Twitter since the breakup, posting their feelings about one another and the split.

"Just recorded a demo," Justin wrote. "Now I'm sitting on the couch wondering why we as humans try to pretend everything's OK when it isn't. Just be real.”

Miley replied: "Everything IS ok. Honestly. I can't change you're mind and your heart no longer belongs to me. Maybe YOU'RE the one pretending you're fine (sic)."

Vanessa Hudgens Is Ready To Move On

Just because you start out as a Disney star doesn’t mean you have to be one for the rest of your life. Like Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens also has plans to venture out. Even though Bandslam was another high school movie for the young star she has no desire to let herself get type casted into any specific role.

"I love High School Musical," the actress told MTV News while promoting Bandslam “But I feel like I've moved on. And I'm doing different things and growing up. Honestly, I just kind of do things I feel passionate about,"

What might she be passionate about? Something I’m sure you’ll never guess. She’s always “wanted to do action. That was my biggest go-to when I wanted to play the sexy girl was to be in an action film, and I get to do that in Sucker Punch, and I'm so excited."

Hopefully Sucker Punch will do better in theaters, better than how Bandslam has done so far.

PCM Movie Review: The Time Traveler's Wife

Another New York Times Bestseller makes a leap onto the big screen. The Time Traveler's Wife is a story about Clare (Rachel McAdams) who has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana) her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time traveler-cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through the years with no control. Despite the fact that Henry's travels force them apart with no warning, and never knowing when they will be reunited, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love.

As a person who has both read the book and seen the movie I must say, not a bad job. It is quite obvious from the beginning the great chemistry between McAdams and Bana. I think that the movie was as similar to the book as it could have been. Considering that it's Hollywood, it had to cut out some parts and adapt things here and there to keep the audiences attention, but still I was not disappointed. I listened around me in the theater to women blowing their noses and sniffling, and it was quite evident that the passion between the characters Clare and Henry that radiates from the book had found its way onto the screen. Mind you, before you see the movie I suggest getting your mind prepared for understanding time travel and the space time continuum, but other than that I would suggest this movie. Anyone whose looking for a love story that is not at all sappy and with actors you can't help but love check out The Time Traveler's Wife.

Alyssa Milano Ties the Knot Down Homestyle

Finally she gets to be the boss... Alyssa Milano (36) married Dave Bugliari (30) in a traditional wedding with traditional vows with a traditional dress -- OK custom dress by none other than Vera Wang complete with rose petals in the aisles. Then traditional became very oldschool traditional, you could even call it modest.

Before the wedding on August 15, 2009 Alyssa tweeted: Good morning/afternoon/evening/night. Whatever it is for you, I hope this tweet finds you in good spirits.

The wedding was held at the Bugliari estate in New Jersey. The couples wedding theme was nature and family emphasized by wooden signs directing wedding guests to their reception area complete with rattan chairs and haybails as cocktail tables. Meanwhile dinner was served on antique style farmhouse tables on wood flooring and wrought iron chandeliers. The couple used a wedding planner for this.

Milano met Bugliari in 2006 calling him a "lovely gift" and have been engaged December 18, 2008. Bugliari is an agent for Creative Artist Agency taking his own shot at creativity by designing Milano's cushion-cut diamond with the help of Jim Lavi at Daniel Jewelry in La Jolla, California.

This is Milano's second marriage. She was briefly married for 11 months to musician Cinjun Tate (Remy Zero) in 1999. Milano has also dated Eric Dane and Justin Timberlake. From her involvement in producing team sport clothing for women, Alyssa has also dated pitcher Brad Penny and Carl Pavano.
