Life and Death of the Horror Film Legend George Romero

In 1968, George Romero created his first ever horror film, “Night of the Flesh Eaters” which was soon changed to Night of the Living Dead. The depth of imagination and true horror found within Romero’s work has inspired many horror film fanatics into creating their own masterpieces of horror. Although there have been thousands of horror films released since 1968, there has yet to be another like Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.

After George Romero’s many years in the horror film industry, he sadly passed way in his sleep Sunday after a battle with lung cancer. His movie producing partner, Peter Grunwald gave his statement to the press soon after his passing. Thankfully, Romero was able to pass peacefully to his favorite movie “The Quiet Man”, with his wife and his daughter Tina close at his side.

If there was any particular way Romero would have wanted to go, it would have gone just that way. Next to the two women he loved the most, along with his favorite horror flick. Although his film producing days may be over, his legend still lives on with some of his greatest films such as Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead. All of which will forever remain in the hearts of every true horror fan because of their unique story lines and the amount of horror Romero was able to squeeze in for the fans. If there was one thing Romero could never be, it was underestimated.

Is Scott Disick up to His Old Tricks?

Scott Disick is no stranger to the spotlight. After a marriage to Kourtney Kardashian that produced three children, Disick was constantly in headlines as a part of the Kardashian clan. While Disick and Kardashian’s marriage failed, the couple remained close friends over the years, even sharing a California home together.

In May, Disick made headlines after an excursion in France with Bella Thorne. Although both deny any romantic involvement during the Cannes trip, photos show the couple enjoying close-up time together. Now, Disick is making headlines once again, this time after being spotted with the 19-year old Thorne at CatchNYC in celebration of Steve Aoki’s album release.

Thorne appeared on McCarthy’s SiriusXM satellite radio show just days before the July 17 sighting, telling McCarthy she and Disick have never been together sexually. Whether the relationship is sexual or not, the couple have certainly been spending a lot of time together.

Although the couple say they’re just friends, spectators say the couple was lovey-dovey throughout the night, showing PDA often. Thorne arrived at the event shortly before Disick, and parted shortly before him as well.

It seems that the self-titled ‘Lord’ is up to his old ways again. We all remember the hard-core Disick during his years of partying, which ultimately led to a short stint in rehab, and from spectators POV, the dissolution of his marriage to Kardashian.

The two recent sightings with Thorne aren’t the only ladies that Disick has been seen with. During a party in The Hamptons, Disick was seen making out with Emma Blanchard. He’s also been spotted with other ladies at various clubs and establishments.

Perhaps the new, old Disick has something to do with his ex-wife’s new beau. Kardashian has been dating Younes Bendjima since the end of last year, although she’s still not publicly recognized the relationship.

She was a former member of Destiny’s Child, but within the last decade LeToya Luckett has been known much more so for her solo career.

She would become one of the members of Destiny’s Child that would actually go on to have a successful career with cameos on various shows like “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.” Luckett would also appear in movies like “The Preacher’s Daughter.” She would become a very interesting piece of the entertainment puzzle in the urban movie scene. She would also become someone that connected with a lot of R&B fans as an artist that never gave up.

Kenny Rogers Bids Farewell to Touring After 60 Year Career

Legendary Country music singer Kenny Rogers, 78, has announced he will conclude his final world tour, culminating his 60 year touring career during a final show this October.

Rogers announced the Nashville show this week and said one of country’s most popular singers, Dolly Parton, will perform with him during the show. The two had a world-wide hit with their 1983 single “Islands in the Stream.” which still enjoys significant air play today, more than thirty years after its release. The song, written by the Bee Gees, became a crossover hit in both the Country music and Pop genres. The success of the song spurred more than thirty years of periodic collaboration between the two artists. Both Rogers and Parton say this will be their final performance together.

Rogers said the night will serve as a celebration. His six decade career has earned Rogers three Grammy awards; two for Best Male Vocal Performance for “The Gambler” and “Lucille,” respectively. Rogers third Grammy was for the 1988 collaboration with Ronnie Milsap on “Make no Mistake, She’s Mine.” Rogers was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame during 2013, but has never been inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

Also slated to perform with Rogers during the show are Allison Krauss, Little Big Town, Jamey Johnson, Idina Menzel and cult favorites The Flaming Lips. Each of the guest performers will take time covering Rogers numerous hits. The all-star farewell concert is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., October 25 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

The Resilience of Letoya Luckett

As a former member of Destiny’s Child
Letoya Luckett knows a lot about being in the spotlight. She was originally part of a group that featured Beyonce, but that relationship would be soured when she was replaced by another member. LeToya Luckett dropped out of the scene for a moment after that happened, but she has continuously pursued her dreams of being in the show business Arena.

She has endeavored into acting over the years, and she has appeared in several movies and television shows. Latoya never let the fact that she was dropped from the Destiny’s Child group affect her career. In fact, she may have become the underdog that fans embraced because of the disconnection from Destiny’s Child.

Luckett created a very interesting album in 2017 where she would catch people up to speed on what has been going on in her life. She has been somewhat transparent about the fact that her marriage did not work and that she is going through a divorce. There is a gag order on the divorce, however, so she has not given fans everything. She did, however, want people to know that she was still interested in being in love again and she wanted a husband and a family.

LeToya Luckett would prove to be a very resilient person that would not let bad brakes in her professional or business life stop her from pursuing her dreams. Letoya has gained a lot of fans because she has continued to be open and honest. She has spoken about upcoming roles in entertainment where she may even get to play Dionne Warwick in a biopic. LeToya Luckett has been able to make a great career for herself even though she had a hard road to finding success. Luckett has achieved many great things.

Stallone Is Writing Creed 2

Anyone who thought Sylvester Stallone would completely leave the Rocky franchise behind was sorely mistaken. The actor is hard at work writing the script for Creed 2. The original Creed was a critically-acclaimed spinoff of the original Rocky franchise. The character of Rocky Balboa played a prominent role in the film, but Rocky’s tenure in the upcoming tenure in the films was never intended to be a long one. Creed, the title character, takes center stage.

While Rocky Balboa may be bowing out, Stallone definitely is not. People forget that Stallone not only played Rocky, he created the character. Stallone wrote the original script for Rocky in the early 1970’s and turned down six-figure payoffs to sell the script and walk away. Stallone held out to be cast in the lead. He got his way and cinema history was made. And James Caan, the studio’s choice for Rocky, went onto other things. Stallone would go on and write the first six films in the Rocky series.

Stallone noted he was moving away from acting due to the physical toll. Plans for a new Rambo movie were scrapped when Stallone, essentially, said he could not perform the character effectively at his age. His role in The Expendables franchise seemed to be a perfect one, but Stallone has bailed out on the new entry in the series. Creative differences were at the root of his departure.

Stallone may be looking at writing and producing films for the next several years. A sequel to Creed surely will be a box office hit. Look for a number of Creed movies to appear in theaters over the next several years. Stallone’s name probably will be attached to them.

Tom Cruise Is a Reliable Action Star

The movie industry is a very tricky thing. Studios invest millions of dollars in movies they believe will be huge hits. Of course, things do not always work out that way. The Hollywood movie studios often suffer massive losses on flops with big A-list stars. ‘The Lone Ranger’ starring Johnny Depp is an example of a highly anticipated and very expensive movie that did nothing at the box office. There are very few stars these days that can be depended on to make money with almost every movie they release. Dwayne Johnson has turned into one of those guys. However, he has not been around for nearly as long as Tom Cruise. He has been a box office star for more than three decades. The remarkable thing is that Cruise shows no signs of slowing down even though he is well into his 50s.

 

Cruise still insists on doing most of his own stunts. Fans have responded to his enthusiasm by continuing to see his movies in very large numbers. The ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise has become one of the most lucrative in the history of movies. Cruise has often been asked why he has been able to have a career that has lasted so long when so many other stars fade away. He credits his success to his ability to pick quality scripts and surround himself with good people. He is very picky about the directors he will work with. He also demands that the crews that work on his films be very experienced.

 

Cruise has not been doing a lot of drama films in recent years. He has been focusing mainly on the big budget summer blockbusters that tend to make a lot of money. This has been good for his career and his bank account. He is currently filming the sixth installment in the ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise that will be released in 2018. He says that doing his own stunts in action movies has kept him young.
