The goal of these photos is pretty obvious, Fox wants to set the record straight and prove she does not have botox injections. Four photos were posted of Fox raising her eye brows and scrunching her forehead. A typical person with botox could not do such things as the botox would prevent the person from much, if any movement in the botox injected areas.
The timing of Fox’s botoxless photos coincides with her new Giorgio Armani Beauty campaign which started on Wednesday, July 6th. Fox will be featured in the Gloss d’Armani campaign as well as a 2011 limited summer edition which includes eye shadow, sheer bronzer, blush, mascara and sheer lipstick.

Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” received terrible reviews from critiques but praise from audiences. Scoring a 38% and 90% respectively on RottenTomatoes.com
While Michael Bay’s “big film/big budget formula” may not appeal to all it does attract a crowd, making $162.1M at the box office so far. The movie was everything I expected awesome special effects, lots of action, and not much story. Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon was better than Transformers 2: Revenge of the fallen in all but once capacity (I miss Megan Fox). Do not watch this movie if you are expecting Shakespeare but a must see if you like senseless action packed block busters full of special effects.
We learn that mankind’s first mission to the moon was intended to investigate an alien space craft that crashed on the dark side. This ship, “the Arc,” carried the Autobots last hope to our solar system a long time ago.

The site where Ryan Dunn’s Porsche crashed was turned into a make shift memorial by friends, family and fans. Hundreds of goers stop by to leave pictures, cards, candles and flowers in his memory. Recently the site has been vandalized by someone that may be a bad speller.
The guard rail adorned with messages written fans and family was spray painted over with the words “Ritch Prick.” Yes, “Ritch.” So there are no suspects, police say it would be impossible to narrow down when or who vandalized the guard rail as there are numerous visitors every hour.
J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 film recalls those old great summer movies. Particullary those of the films producer, Steven Spielberg. Abrams’ long-awaited science fiction drama is in one word awesome.
The trailers give very little to draw from, Super 8 from the start lays a foundation of mystery to the story and for once it didn’t give too much away. And while the mystery is intriguing in its own right, it says something about the strength and conviction of the storytelling when the movie works in spite of it. The tension surrounding whatever escaped from that train car will lure people into theaters, but it’s the human elements that will stay with them after they leave.
A period sci-fi thriller set in 1979, around a small Ohio town. The film follows a group of middle school students making a zombie movie on their summer vacation. One night, while shooting at an empty train station, a pickup truck drives onto the tracks and collides with an oncoming train. The kids survive and discover the truck’s driver is one of their own school teachers. He points a gun at them and tells them to run away just before the military arrives. It happens that their film camera was running the entire time and caught footage of some very confidential cargo. When the locals start to disappear and even the inquisitive deputy can’t come up with answers, suspicions emerge. As the truth finally comes out, no one is prepared to learn what now stalks the unsuspecting citizens of this once quiet community.
A solid piece of family entertainment, the plot of Super 8 is but an engine for a greater emotional story.

X-Men: First Class, the prequel to the X-Men movies, fills in the back story of charcters you have grown to love or lays the foundation to a start loving them. So weather your a mutant guru or you know little about the franchise, X-men First Class stands on its own. Powerful performances, good story, classy direction, and a top notch cast infuses a fresh breath of life to the old X-Men franchise! It has all the right ingredients for a super hit movie.
You might not have guessed Professor X would have been a lively, charming guy who flirted a lot, or that Mystique was actually like a sister to Professor X before joining hands with Magneto. Magneto and Professor X were as close as brothers when they were still known as Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier. The movie not only showcases the origins of the X-Men, but also the intricate and interwoven relationships shared by the central characters.
The movie begins with how Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr get to know of their powers, the way they grow up, understand their abilities, and learn to control them. Then the movie goes on to show how they join forces with the government to avert a nuclear holocaust during the cold war period, there is not a single dull moment. It is Interesting to see how they have woven the real world with the “X-Men Universe” and give good reason to set the movie in the 1960. Strong dialogues and repartees between the characters feel as if taken from real history, some gems like “Peace was never an option”, and “Mutant and Proud!” would be good examples of this.
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender do complete justice to their roles as Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr respectively. Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, the nefarious scientist who heads the hellfire club which seeks to end the human race, is menacing. Director Matthew Vaughn has ensured that the viewer gets to feel the anger in Erik’s eyes, and the compassion in Xavier’s voice, on a personal level. The racy narration and non-stop action keeps the viewers riveted to their seats. X-Men: First Class answers all questions that a person would have had after watching the earlier X-Men movies, and it ensures that it is a perfect prequel in the sense that it leaves no loose threads and establishes a solid platform for the unraveling of the X-Men universe.
