Fame - Before they were famous!

I love those ‘before they were famous’ shows where you get people like David Bowie, aka The founder of The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-haired Men, voicing his distress over being called a ‘girl.’ How the times changed hey?! Well I just read our latest release and I love MGM HD's vibe.

MGM HD is celebrating the release of the new movie Fame with a month long series of movies. What makes them have anything to do with the new movie Fame I hear you ask?

Opening up the MGM vault, MGM HD will be broadcasting awesomeness like Sid & Nancy, Six Degrees of Separation and Johnny Be Good. These are the films that are considered by many as the breakout roles for the likes of Gary Oldman, Will Smith and Uma Thurman. You see, these are the films that made them famous…in support of the new film Fame…

Here's what they have -

Sunset Beat
Disturbing Behavior
Six Degrees of Separation

Once Bitten
Man in the Moon
Stardust Memories
Innocent Lies
Nicholas Nickleby
Babes in Toyland
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sid & Nancy
Mystery Date
Johnny Be Good
Modern Girls

Watch the trailers and see if you can guess who is in what...

Wait a minute…Gary Oldman was Sid in Sid & Nancy?! How the hell did I not know that?!

Inglourious Basterds: Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Documentary

I was watching Pulp Fiction again last night in an, I CAN’T BLOODY WAIT, anticipation for Quentin Taranteno’s latest venture Inglourious Basterds. I’m getting more and more exited as the minutes tick down to Nazi bashing time.

Needless to say when MGM sent me a peek at their exclusive 30 minute behind-the-scenes making of documentary,“HOW TO BE A BASTERD: INSIDE THE NEW FILM BY QUENTIN TARANTINO”…well you can imagine.

“It doesn’t suck to be me!”

For those not in the know This TV launched a year ago and is cleared in over 70% of the U.S. Here is a press release about it that we sent out not so long back. Have a sneaky peek.

Anyway, it airs THURSDAY 8/20 (10p-10:30p & 8/22 12a-12:30a) and is definitely worth a look if you are as excited about this movie as I am.

Oh I saw District 9 yesterday. You should go and see it today. Enough said.

Just to give some link love, if you want to know the latest on all things movie related you might wanna try the following sites -

Targets of Terror

Most people believe the next terrorist attack in India could be on the Taj Mahal Hotel, The Ritz Carlton or the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai.

I didn’t learn about this until after I returned from my India trip and stayed at the Grand Hyatt.

The date of November 26 has become a symbol of terror in India much like 9-11 is in the US. The day before I arrived in Mumbai, the sole gunman captured alive during last November 26's terrorist attacks in Mumbai confessed and plead guilty in an Indian court of law. Police say 21-year-old Mohammed Ajmal Kasab and his partners shot dead 58 people during an assault on Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the city's main train station. A total of 12 charges have been filed against him, including murder and waging war against India.

So going into India one could rightly assume that security would be tight…but just how tight is the question.

After picking up my bags at the airport, my taxi took me to the Grand Hyatt and we arrived about 2 a.m. It didn't take long to see that security is in full force.

The hotel was protected by an outpost or security checkpoint. Two armed guards put up their hand for us to stop. One guard grabs a mirror-reflector pole and runs it under the car, looking for a possible bomb. The other guard taps the front of the hood and the driver releases the hood and the trunk. This may be a new experience to me, but for the driver and guards, it has become routine.

We drive up to the front of the hotel and are greeted by more security guards, some armed with rifles. Before entering the hotel, your bags are hoisted through an X-ray machine and of course, you need to walk through a metal detector. After passing through the metal detector, I spot a German Sheperd attack dog.

I walk up to the reception desk and a pretty young Indian woman working the night shift says, "Welcome to Mumbai."

Every car and every person go through the same security drill during my three day visit. The Grand Hyatt is a beautiful hotel, but you can’t help but think what may be lurking in the shadows.

Jeff Pryor - Priority Public Relations...

I travel a lot and my favorite airline is Lufthansa. Germans are among the most reliable and dependable people on this earth.

Once, when I was sitting in first class, the flight attendant asked me if she could wake me up when it was time for breakfast. “It depends,” I said. “What are my choices for breakfast?”

“Well, I could make you scrambled eggs and bacon,” she offered, proudly.

“Do you know how long it’s been since I had a woman offer to make me breakfast,” I chided.

She was dumbfounded. Didn’t know what to say next so I let her wake me up and the breakfast was not half bad.

PR people should have the best pick up lines since they are suppose to have the gift of gab...right?
