Blindspot 2017 – it’s Hammer time

I see quite a lot of the movie bloggers are having this blindspot thing going about movies they should have seen but never had time so I started thinking about movies where I had a blindspot and just missed out on. It’s quite a lot… but.. *flashbulb*

I realised I had loads of Hammer horror I’ve missed out on so my Blindspot 2017 these are my  9 picks, skipped 3 months that I will review and I’m so looking forward to seeing them. Oki I will be cheating with Vampire lovers but it was ages ago and needs to be rewatched.

Ingrid Pitt, here I come (hey pervos, not in that way).

CHRISTIANE SCHMIDTMER was born at Heiligabend 1939 – as Christel Schmidtmer – in Mannheim. Her father Jakob Schmidtmer disappeared in the Second World War in Russia. From the war-tormented Mannheim moved her mother Gertrude her renewed marriage the family settled down in Heidelberg. In 1959 she began a two-year apprentice training in Munich. Amongst others, she starred in Marc Camoletti’s play “Boeing Boeing”. She became internationally known for the first time with the refugee drama “Delays in Marienborn”. The film also appeared in the US in the US and attracted both Hollywood and Max Factor Cosmetics to the young German actress. At the New York World’s Fair in 1964 she was presented as an exclusive cover model of the cosmetics company. She played in the Oscar-winning film “The Fool’s Ship” on the side of big world stars and returned to the role of the sexy Lufthansa stewardess in the film version of “Boeing Boeing” with Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Hollywood critics described it as the “most exciting German import since Marlene Dietrich” and it advanced to the stereotypical, German “Fräuleinwunder” in the USA. In 1966 she came to playmate honors in the US edition of the Playboy – the pictures were very erotic, but not as free as those of other models. Her Hollywood career had already passed her zenith, but she remained in the film business until the early 1980s, increasingly in smaller roles of big Hollywood productions, as a guest star in various US series, and also as a cult movie queen in some B-movie productions. After publishing her autobiography in 1981, Christiane Schmidtmer retired almost completely into private life. She lived alternately in Los Angeles and Heidelberg. She died there on March 13, 2003, at the age of only 63 years.

Summer Spiro

Haven’t seen the show but might do now.


The delectable Summer Spiro sizzles as the femme fatale Jessica in “If Looks To Kill” as her dark past threatens policewoman Faith (Stefanie Estes) who is troubled by Summer’s liaison with her ex boyfriend.

– Shades of Marilyn Monroe and L.A. Confidential’s Kim Basinger is evident in Summer’s portrayal of the icy blonde with a lust for killing and who herself evokes an entrancing appetence in those around her.

The mist

I love horror movies but might have made a mistake yesterday. I watched The Mist and woke up this morning to.. yeah guess what.. mist… oki normal morning sometimes but the entire day? Oh fuck that, I’m not stepping out. So happy I got a day off.. 😆

My view at 2 o’clock

And btw if you haven’t seen the movie, watch it or read the book. Both great in their own way.

Photographer explores the public and private personas of your favorite actors

This is actually so cool shots of the people we see onscreen and how they view themselves offscreen.

Bored by the set-up of traditional film festival photo booths, Andrew H. Walker, a staff photographer at Shutterstock, took an unusual approach to celebrity portraiture for this year’s Toronto Film Festival.

Back in September, Walker asked entertainers in attendance to pose for a series that explores the internal and external voices of celebrities.

“I was really curious with actors because they have, not only this personal inside voice, but they have a public persona that they put out there, and they also have their private self,” Walker tells Mashable. “There’s this whole other layer of themselves as people. I found that really, really intriguing.”

The series features 51 performers — including several Golden Globe nominees — sharing two sides of themselves for the camera. 

“Having done this before, I know that celebrities are very guarded about their image, and so I was really nervous about how to start this and what the response was going to be,” Walker says. “I have to say, 95 percent were so willing and interested in doing something.”

FWD: actress spotlight: Suteara Vaughn


Via gornoblonde.wordpress.com

We most certainly wouldn’t mind being shamelessly devoted to the luscious Suteara Vaughn who is enticing viewers on television this week. She has a recurring role as Ariel and in the episode ‘I Am A Storm’, Suteara works with Fiona (Emmy Rossum) to drum up business by throwing a speakeasy party at Patsy’s Pies. Emmy gives a tour-de-force performance as Fiona who has descended into jadedness. Perhaps preparations for the party could lift her spirits and as Ariel there’s will be more of the foxy Suteara to fawn over in future episodes too. Suteara made a positive impression in her scenes with Emmy and she has the budding talents to dazzle this industry. She’s already usurping two stereotypes on TV, that of being curvier and not stick skinny as well as being cast as an Asian American character on a hit show. We did lose a beloved one on “The Walking Dead” but perhaps they could cast Suteara one day. Another strong women on that series should stir things up even more!

 

Logan | Official Trailer [HD] | 20th Century FOX

Am a huge Wolverine fan and this trailer looks awesome. Dark, badass drinking Wolverine and of course X-23. 

Probably the last one for Hugh Jackman which is sad but he has potrayed this character perfectly so am really looking forward to seeing this.

And as a side note,  whoever picked this music for this trailer deserves applause.
