Abs and Angels


by James Tuttle

Gentle reader,

It’s been a while since my last movie review of Thor in the spring.  I suppose that’s because it’s been a while since I had a free minute at the same time that a movie with a lot of hunky shirtless guys was in theatres.  You probably recall that the shirt-to-shirtless ratio turned out to be pretty dismal in Thor but Tarsem Singh’s new film Immortals didn’t have that problem.  It’s set in an age before shirts were even invented!

Henry Cavill: It sure looks tough being that gorgeous.

I should probably be embarrassed that I so rarely support the entertainment industry by actually buying tickets at the cinema, $19 each in this case, as involved in it as I am.  Many of my clients are heavy hitters in the business, I myself am on hold to act in a couple of indie flicks and I have at least one screenplay being considered for a Lifetime Network-level budget.  On the other hand, our cleaning lady Esperanza probably does, too.  That’s how we roll here in L.A.
