Movie Review: "The November Man" Is A Lackluster Action Film

Wed, Aug 27, 2014 | Filed in: Film / Movie Reviews

Pierce Brosnan just can’t stay away from the world of espionage. Perhaps suffering from nostalgia over his successful run in the 90’s and early 2000’s as the martini-swilling 007, the debonair actor-producer is back in another adrenaline-pumping spy thriller – this one titled “The November Man,” costarring Luke Bracey and Olga Kurylenko.

As directed by New Zealander turned Hollywood helmer, Roger Donaldson (“Cocktail,” “The Bank Job”), a filmmaker with a favorable track record, this latest venture into the world of secret agents is full of the high-energy action sequences one expects from the genre but as a whole is a forgettable experience.

Wed, Aug 27, 2014 | Filed in: Breaking News

Gun rangeShould a 9 year-old girl be learning how to shoot a gun? That is the question in the media today after shooting range instructor, Charles Vacca was accidentally shot and killed by his 9 year-old student in Arizona.

The girl was learning how to shoot an Uzi on Monday morning at the Last Stop shooting range in White Hills, Arizona. After pulling the trigger, the kickback caused the gun to lurch over her head, according to investigators.

The 39 year-old instructor was hit by a stray bullet and airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he was pronounced dead late Monday. The names of the girl and her parents, who were with her at the time, were not released.

Seth Meyers Emmy Awards

It was a successful start to the awards season with Seth Meyers hosting a swift and entertaining 66th Emmy Awards. With comedy throughout, the evening was fun and fast-moving. The theme of the show was 'comedy' with plenty of presenters who have graced the "Saturday Night Live" stage, from Jimmy Fallon to Amy Poehler and other comedians/late night talk show hosts such as Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Key & Peele.

The show steered clear of selfies and pizza deliveries, but there were plenty of highlights; including Bryan Cranston making out with Julia Louis-Dreyfus before she accepted her Emmy for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Meyers hosted a little Q&A with the audience. Melissa McCarthy asked about her parking and Jon Hamm was surprised to find out he was on national television. Weird Al performed a parody series of theme songs from the best Drama and Comedy Series' nominees, finishing with Andy Samberg dressed as a king Joffrey from "Game of Thrones."

It has been one year since Miley Cyrus brought her infamous "twerk" to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards. Nicki Minaj proved that the twerk has not died, opening the 2014 VMAs with just as much booty shaking (some we could have done without) during her "Anaconda" cover. Minaj started the show with Ariana Grande and Jesse J, singing their new hit, "Bang, Bang." The theme of the night was clear, from the Trojan commercials to the shining chains, stage humping and Vine sharing: Bling, booty and social media.

The night continued with a lot of booty and bling. "Saturday Night Live" star, Jay Pharoah acted as a pseudo host throughout the evening; imitating artists such as Jay Z and Kanye West. Most of his comedy proved to be less than entertaining.
