Steve Martin Sold Night

Steve Martin Sold His Island Paradise — Take a Look Inside

Actor, author, comedian, art collector and banjo player extraordinaire Steve Martin sold his Caribbean retreat, “Villa Au Soleil,” just last week. He’d owned the very private retreat since 2007, and listed it for € 7,250,000, or about $7,822,615. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Martin and his work. I like to think he…

The Good Dinosaur Review

THE GOOD DINOSAUR Review — No Dynamite Here

Regardless of what I say, parents are going to take their kids out to see Pixar’s latest offering, The Good Dinosaur. And that’s not a bad thing. Kids will love the Dino Does the Old West theme, and won’t mind the fact that the big green guys look like something conceived by a student in Animation 101.…

If you love your pets like we all do here At Home in Hollywood, you’ve already started thinking about what you’re going to get your furry friend for Christmas, and what you’re going to give to their doggone buddies. Hollywood Hound Frankie Feldman presented me with his Santa list two weeks ago. So the opportunity to check out the…

Love the Coopers review

LOVE THE COOPERS Review — Too Soon?

I have to pay respect to companies like Nordstrom, a retail chain that has vowed to deck no halls for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I kind of wish the distributors of Love the Coopers, an “I’ll be home for Christmas” movie with an all-star cast, would have taken Nordstrom’s lead and not released the film until December.…

Peanuts Movie Review

THE PEANUTS MOVIE REVIEW: Good Grief! It's Great!

Sweetest movie of the year (period). It was both a relief and a thrill to see the tenderness, reverence and whimsy with which filmmakers brought the beloved Peanuts gang to the big screen. It took me right back to the days of having a dancing Snoopy Feelin’ Groovy poster on my wall, and dressing up as the WWI Flying…

Spectre Review

SPECTRE Review — Bonding With Bond

By James Mandell For those who’ve grown up with Mr. Bond in real time, each new 007 release is a much anticipated event. So the decision comes down to theater or cable, and if you’re a true movie-goer, it’s no contest because you know the chase scenes are going to be much more impactful on the big, big…

Sam Simon Donates

Simpsons Co-Creator Sam Simon Donates Proceeds From Unique Pacific Palisades Homes

It’s a one-of-a-kind property for a one-of-a-kind guy. Sam Simon, co-creator of “The Simpsons” (among many titles), died last March of colorectal cancer at age 59, but he was prepared for it. He designated his vast fortune for various charitable organizations, including his own Sam Simon Foundation (which largely helps dogs), PETA, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society…

Bruce Lee Style and 75th Birthday Celebration – Exclusive Interview with Shannon Lee

By Staci Layne Wilson @StaciWilson When you conjure up an image of Bruce Lee, you probably either think of the famous yellow and black jumpsuit he wore in the film Game of Death, or you think of him shirtless and bloody in Enter the Dragon. But the clothes made the man in many ways, according…

TRUMBO Review — Write On, Bryan Cranston!

Unless you’re a committed cinephile, the odd-sounding name “Trumbo” may not ring any bells, and you might not be inclined to rush out and see this extraordinary film. But don’t let the title fool you, Trumbo is not only an inspiring civics lesson that everyone should learn, but a tour de force for Bryan Cranston,…
