Lana Wood on Blu-ray in “Diamonds are Forever”
There are so many beautiful Bond girls in the James Bond series, but Lana Wood definitely stands out as one of the sexiest. She plays Plenty O’Toole in “Diamonds are Forever” and has one of the all-time classic casino scenes. The film is set in the early 1970s, so we see the elegant James Bond hanging around the tacky Vegas casinos as he’s dressed in a white tuxedo jacket. Plenty O’Toole is a gorgeous gold digger who loves finding high rollers and she gravitates to Bond immediately at the craps table. She approaches Bond and we have a classic scene that’s often played out in Vegas, with a beautiful woman showing off her cleavage as she’s rolling the dice. You can see in these screen shots and the video below that she deserves her “Plenty” name. She’s a stunning brunette who can definitely fill out a dress. Go to Vegas any time and you’ll see all sorts of sugar babies looking for well-dressed men with plenty of cash.
She has another great scene in the hotel room after their craps adventure when she hooks up with Bond and is basically wearing nothing. Unfortunately for Plenty, she’s one of the many Bond conquests who end up dead in the early films as she was tossed out of the hotel window.
Watching Lana Wood as Plenty O’Toole playing craps with Sean Connery as James Bond reminds of us everything we love about gambling in casinos. It has the excitement of the casino games along with all the atmosphere of Las Vegas with a beautiful women in a low-cut dress. Now that’s entertainment! Of course things have changed and now you can get the thrill of winning on sites like uk.888casino.com, but it is pretty hard to replicate Lana Wood in that setting. That’s why places like Vegas will always be a huge draw.
At least you can now enjoy the beautiful Lana Wood in all her glory by watching “Diamonds are Forever” on Blu-ray. In high def you get a real appreciation for this curvy brunette. Enjoy!

Olivia Wilde on Blu-ray in “The Change-Up”
Olivia Wilde is stunningly beautiful with her dark hair and blue eyes, and she’s probably never looked better than she did in “The Change-Up.” This recent romantic comedy also starring Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds and Leslie Mann is definitely worth a rental or purchase. It follows the very common body-switching story idea we’ve seen many times, but Bateman and Reynolds do a great job with the characters. Wilde plays a beautiful lawyer and has some very sexy scenes in the movie.
Unfortunately, this movie commits the serious and growing crime of CGI nudity!
But if you ask me, the single greatest crime of the Digital Effects Era is more subtle, and yet also more profound. I’m talking about fake movie nudity, which first made headlines last year with Jessica Alba’s shower scene in Machete. Last night, omnipresent film beauty Olivia Wilde swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to chat about Cowboys & Aliens, but the conversation took a tangent when she started discussing her other upcoming release, The Change-Up. The movie features a shot of the actress nude, but Wilde explained that the offending bits were all added in post-production. “I wasn’t actually naked, but now I appear naked. They CGI’d me naked.” Apparently, the scene as filmed featured a shot of Wilde’s “pasties” — adhesives that actors use to cover up their private bits during nude scenes. The studio cheerily opted to paint in nipples, which is coincidentally exactly how my fifth-grade friends made X-Men comics more emotionally compelling. Wilde even got to pick her own nipples!
Perhaps this wasn’t planned so it can be excused to some extent. Olivia has been nude in other movies. But it’s still just so wrong! But, she also looks amazing in a thong in this film, so don’t let the CGI spoil it for you. Here’s the trailer:

Great TV Box Sets for The Holidays
The holidays are around the corner and tomorrow will be Black Friday. As you’re shopping around there will be tons of great TV box sets to choose from this year. Check out this guide for some great ideas, including the “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad” box sets.
“Dexter” is probably the biggest hit in Showtime’s history but it did decline over the years. Still it’s a show worth getting into from the beginning with Michael C. Hall carrying the show and great contributions from guest stars like John Lithgow, Keith Carradine, Jimmy Smits, Julia Stiles and Jonny Lee Miller.
As for “Breaking Bad,” some are calling it the best TV drama of all time. Vince Gilligan’s creation was carried by Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn and a fantastic cast. This one is a must and will be one of the hot gifts of the year.

Are casual hookups as easy as what you see in the movies? This scene from “Knocked Up” with Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen is a classic, and for most of us also very familiar. That’s basically why people go to bars. Men and women are there to have a good time, and the oh-so-important ingredient of alcohol is present as well. Add in a dance floor and all of a sudden you have the perfect environment for quick hookups. Rogan’s character in this movie is a complete dork, but he’s also funny, and he’s even funnier when Heigl’s character is drinking shots. Of course in real life his conquest might not have been quite that hot, but it can happen.
Of course many people, particularly men, want to recreate this scene as often as possible. Bars and nightclubs are popular for many reasons and this is clearly one of them. But frankly it’s rarely that easy for most people. Also, many women at bars don’t go out thinking they’ll go home with someone, and they prefer to think “it just happened!” Still, there are many women out there who want to try a one night stand, and fortunately now for men it’s easier to find them since there are hookup sites devoted to just that. Some are simple adult dating sites while others are tailored more around affairs. Not everyone approves, but who cares? As much as we watch scenes like the ones above and get reminded of some great hookups in our past, making the process easier and more reliable would be great. It would also be nice not having to spend a small fortune night after night on over-priced cocktails!
Movies are fun and full of fantasies. Women love getting sucked in by sappy romantic comedies, while guys love wild movies with plenty of casual hookups. Hollywood knows how to feed us what we want. But reality can be very different of course.
Jane Fonda on Blu-ray in “Barbarella”
If you’re looking for Blu-ray gifts this holiday season featuring classic Hollywood sex symbols, check out Jane Fonda in “Barbarella.” It’s definitely a quirky movie, but Fonda definitely has the opportunity to put on a bunch of futuristic but sexy outfits! We also love that big 1960s hairstyle.

Is Alice Eve out of your league?
The quick answer to this is yes, of course. If you’re looking for a fun rental on these cold winter nights, you can enjoy this romantic comedy that stars this stunning English beauty. “She’s Out of My League” was directed by Jim Field Smith and released in 2010. The movie stars Jay Baruchel, a young TSA agent working in Pittsburgh who falls in love with a beautiful passenger going through security played by Alice Eve. The movie is definitely funny, even while watching Baruchel’s character make a complete fool of himself. It has a typical Hollywood ending. Fans of Alice Eve will have plenty to enjoy in this movie as she looks absolutely amazing. The blonde bombshell is building quite a career as a movie star and we’ll be seeing plenty more of her in the years to come.
Of course real life rarely works like this. Finding a beauty like Eve requires work even for rich guys and male models. Still, the notion that any woman is “out of your league” is dangerous thinking. That doesn’t mean you buy into the Hollywood fantasy, but it means if you’re looking to date or hook up with a beautiful woman like her, you actually have to put some effort into it. Frankly, it’s probably much easier if a hookup is your goal. That can be a one-time thing, and women’s wants and desires can swing wildly. If you catch her when she wants it now, then your chances improve dramatically. Of course that means putting yourself out there, either approaching women in various social settings or meeting them online as you search for local sex contacts. That’s critical, as they’re not going to just fall in your lap. Watching the Alice Eve movie, we all know that those circumstances are absurd. But what’s not absurd is the effort required, and frankly some luck. But your chances for good fortune rise dramatically the more you try!
There are tons of great websites out there devoted to women looking to hook up. Sure, the women who look like Alice Eve might be looking more for a sugar daddy, but that’s easier to pull off sometimes than you might think. With many women, including younger women, taking them out to a nice restaurant and letting her get all decked out can do wonders. Just don’t be the chump that spends the money and then doesn’t get the payoff. The key is having fun yet also making it clear what you’re looking for. You might be surprised how many hot women are game, and therefore very much in your league.

Celebrities will invade 2014 Super Bowl
Celebrities are always drawn to Super Bowl weekend, but this year the big game is in New York City. Yes, this will be the first outdoor Super Bowl played in a Northern city and we might just get a cold and snowy day. Still, that won’t stop the anticipated celebrity invasion to the Big Apple.
It will be led by the incomparable Bruno Mars. While you’re laying down your 2014 Super Bowl bets, he’ll be getting geared up for what should be an epic halftime show. The NFL has insisted on getting huge stars for the halftime show, but many of them have been old school rock acts like the Rolling Stones and The Who in recent years. Yes, we also had Madonna and Black Eyed Peas, but in Mars we get a star that definitely appeals to the younger generation, and particularly younger women.
The celebrities won’t be drawn to just the game. We can probably expect to see an invasion of celebrities who just hang out in Manhattan for all of the epic Super Bowl parties in the week leading up to the game. We can expect publications like Maxim and brands like Bud to have a huge presence with their parties, and this year the celebrity guest lists will be even longer. It should be fun to see how many D-Listers try to get into these parties to raise their own profile. Just showing up on a Super Bowl party red carpet can raise the profile of a celebrity dying to be talked about in the gossip rags.
Is it worth going to New York for that weekend? On the one hand these parties will be obscenely crowded and difficult to get in to. On the other hand, New York is so damn big so you’ll always find a place to party.
