George Takei on William Shatner in Space: “He’s a Guinea Pig”
Posted on October 15, 2021, 9:00 am
“He’s boldly going where other people have gone before,” George Takei remarked on his former Star Trek co-star William Shatner’s recent trip to space. The two have notoriously been in a feud that has lasted up to ten years.
“He’s a guinea pig,” Takei continued, insinuating that Shatner’s older age will be a worthwhile “specimen to study” after going to and from space. “90 years old is going to show a great deal more on the wear and tear on the human body,” he quipped.
Shatner, who made history this past week as the oldest person to visit space, explained the moving experience. “I was so moved,” he shared. It was a moment he hopes to hold onto for the “rest of [his] life.”

Hitting the box office this weekend is “The Last Duel” and “Halloween Kills.”
On Friday, October 15th, Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” will be released, starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck.
Set in the midst of the Hundred Years War, this R-rated, cinematic drama explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals.

Horror fans can also anticipate an exciting release on Friday, as David Gordon Green’s sequel to “Halloween” is set to hit theaters right in time for the spooky season.
“Halloween Kills” is an R-rated follow-up slasher, which focuses on an injured Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) inspiring a vigilante mob to hunt down unstoppable killer Michael Myers and end his reign of terror once and for all. The horror flick also stars Judy Greer, Anthony Michael Hall, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Thomas Mann among others.

2022 Golden Globes Still To Air — Just Not On NBC
Posted on October 13, 2021, 9:00 am
Back in May, NBC announced that the network would not be airing next year’s Golden Globes after outrage over the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of inclusion.
Even though there is no current home for the ceremony, the HFPA says the show must go on.
According to the HFPA, the association still plans “to recognize the performances of 2021 to celebrate the great work of the industry this past year at the 79th Annual Golden Globes.”

Rarely out and about, Tom Cruise and son, Connor Cruise, were seen bonding at the National League Division Series Game 2 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants this past Saturday.
Their father-son outing was shared with the entirety of Oracle Park, as the two popped up on the big screen in their stadium seats (as “Danger Zone” played fittingly in the background).
When asked if he was a fan of the Dodgers or the Giants, the Top Gun actor kept it simple: “I’m a fan of baseball.”

Kim Kardashian West Makes SNL Hosting Debut
Posted on October 11, 2021, 9:00 am
Kim Kardashian West made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut over the weekend, targeting herself, her infamous family, and even her ex-husband Kanye West as the butt of her monologue jokes.
According to a close source, the reality star was “both nervous and thrilled” to host, even asking for advice from her estranged husband to ensure she’d “wow” the SNL audience.
Still, Kim did not hesitate to roast West when given the chance. “I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius, who gave me four incredible kids,” she started. “When I divorced [West], you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality.”
With plenty of roaring laughter, Kim showed that she takes any spotlight opportunity seriously, not settling for anything less than successful.
