Movie Review: Titanic 3D

     A classic within our own time era, the Titanic coming back is pure genius! I can do nothing but rave about this movie, I mean how do you hate it? It’s like you’re jealous of the movie. If you don't like a part in it go to of the theater and buy popcorn or if you don't want to hear Celine Dion at the end just don't stay for the credits, or buy earplugs and stay for the credits. Anyway seeing as I have to give the likes of you a description the Titanic basically has three stories in one. There's the story of finding the long lost ship at the bottom of the Atlantic. Then there's the story of the poor ship itself, and finally the woeful romantic tale of Jack and Rose. Since you probably know more about the first two I'll tell you a little more about the lovebirds. Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a third class passenger who takes life as a gift and enjoys it to the fullest. He begins to share his way of life with the lovely first class socialist Rose Dewitt Bukater (Kate Winslett), who's forced to marry a wealthy man who she doesn't deserve and honestly doesn't deserve her. As the two spend more and more time together on the fantastic ship they fall for each other. Rose then states that once the ship docks she's going with him. Then the iceberg hits...Will Rose get to keep her promise? Will Dudley Do-Right be one of the Canadian Mounties? Only by watching Titanic in 3D can you answer one of these questions. Watch it and we'll see if you can hold your breath!

Basically, women are ruling the small-screen for 2011-2012. For example, the show "New Girl," starring Zoey Deschanel, is the top gun show this season so far. However, the actress Whitney Cummings shouldn't be crying in her pillow; her two shows, "Whitney" (which she stars in) and "2 Broke Girls" (which stars Kat Dennings, if you know who she is, congrats, I don't), have both been picked up for more seasons. "The X Factor" was not as lucky and won't be back until November. However not all hits starred women; Tim Allen's new show "Last Man Standing" had 13 million viewers for the show's premiere, wether or not it will last depends. Showtime got their hit with the terrorist drama "Homeland". ABC's new shows "Suburgatory" and "Revenge" (great titles, right?) won themselves full seasons. And now we've reached the moment we've all been waiting for, the flops: Canceled: the comedy "Free Agents", another quote unquote comedy "How to be a Gentleman" (gee I wonder why). Now that you've seen what hit the screen and what hit the trash can, sit back relax and enjoy what your TV has to offer.   

Dancing with the Stars Spotlight: J.R. Martinez

J.R. Martinez is a dancer in Dancing with the Stars. Judges liked him ever since the first season, and now we’re in the 13th season and he is still there. Martinez was 19 when he joined the Army. Martinez suffered horrible burns while serving with the U.S. Army during the Iraq war. 40 percent of his body was burned. Once you see him on the show, the first thing you notice are his burns, but, once he starts dancing you forget about them and notice his dancing instead. Martinez says it doesn’t matter what you look like; always keep your hopes up. He says dancing does hurt and he didn’t think it was going to that bad but it's worth it.
