Re: “Queen of the Lot

Queen of the Lot is set in modern-day Hollywood and stars Tanna Frederick, Noah Wyle and Christopher Rydell. In this sequel to Hollywood Dreams, Margie Chizek has achieved B movie success with her action hero films under her new name, Maggie Chase. But she's also gotten into trouble having had a few DUIs and now she's under house arrest - ankle bracelet and all. She's driven in her quest for A-list fame as evidenced by her obsession with her Google points. She's got more points than her home state of Iowa but far less than Angelina Jolie and that's got to change. She has to be Queen of the Lot - just like Norma Shearer. 
 
Zack Norman and David Proval reprise their Hollywood Dreams roles as Kaz and Caesar, the hotshot gay Hollywood producers who discovered Maggie. They are still "married" (to each other) and funnier than ever. Maggie asks them if she can stay at their mansion for a while because she can't stand being stuck in her apartment on house arrest with the press dogging her. They agree and she gets police permission to stay with them.
 
Maggie asks Kaz and Caesar if her boyfriend (an already established star) Dov Lambert (Christopher Rydell), can stay, too. Dov is a half-wit who hails from Hollywood royalty. Enter Aaron Lambert (Noah Wyle), Dov's brother, a failed writer and black sheep of the family, who is sent to fetch Dov to help with a family crisis.   
 
Is there really such a thing as a functional family? I don't think I've ever met one. Dov takes Maggie home to meet the family, headed by charismatic patriarch Louis Lambert (played with great depth by Jack Heller). At dinner, Dov introduces Maggie to everyone, including his sort-of estranged wife (Daisy White). What happens at large dysfunctional family dinners (as in Jaglom's Last Summer in the Hamptons)? Fur flies between various factions and, of course, Margie is right in there trying to fit in and help out and maybe make a connection that will propel her to megastardom. Aaron is in the fray maintaining his role as the family scapegoat and helping Maggie feel comfortable amidst the family bickering while Dov plays with his wife and other more important things - like his poker buddies. Maggie and Aaron reluctantly fall for each other and the way their relationship develops is one of the most irresistible aspects of the film.  
 
Frederick and Wyle together make the silver screen simmer with vintage Tinseltown charm reminiscent of Tracy and Hepburn. Frederick plays Maggie Chase as down-to-earth, believable and loveable. Maggie is driven, insecure, and slightly conniving but she's also smart, forceful and can take care of business. This is Frederick’s best performance as she infuses Maggie with her uncanny combination of star and girl-next-door. Wyle is at the top of his game as Aaron, an insecure good guy whose wife has just left him. He's a wreck but his inner strength comes through in emergencies.
 
As often occurs in Jaglom films, his brother Michael Emil appears, this time as a curmudgeonly interloper in a therapy group. Jaglom's daughter Sabrina is absolutely stunning. Remember her as Zoe Lambert, the young filmmaker in Hollywood Dreams who rejects Margie Chizek? Well, Zoe's turned into quite a formidable, sometimes calculating young woman. Simon Orson Jaglom, is just adorable as Michael Lambert. Love him!
 
There is an outstanding supporting cast including great performances by Kelly DeSarla, Ron Vignone and Diane Salinger as Maggie's "handlers." Salinger is frighteningly believable as Maggie's "life coach." Mary Crosby, Peter Bogdanovich, Dennis Christopher, Paul Sand and Beege Barkette shine as various family members and associates. Tommy Garrett is delightful as a reporter who empathizes with Maggie's quest for fame and the fact that she only gets attention from the press when she’s been bad.  
 
You’ve got to see this movie. There are some very funny lines and Queen of the Lot has heart and soul. When I saw Jaglom’s Hollywood Dreams I thought, "This is the REAL Hollywood." Queen of the Lot has reinforced that. I'd like to poll some Hollywood types to see if they agree. In any event, I am confident that Tanna Frederick is going to achieve her dreams in Hollywood and if there were still a lot, she would be queen of it!

Re: “Creed

Saw the movie today and was very impressed. Stallone at his best. The young Creed (Michael B. Jordan) was excellent in his role also, and the movie was relatively devoid of gratuitous sex and bad language.

Re: “Q & A with Thomas "Silky' Sullivan,

@Circa1965 - Anytime you are having too much fun, somebody will try to stop it. This is one of the Fundamental Laws of the Universe. Sometimes it's your parents. Sometimes it's the police. Occasionally, it is a hotel shrubbery which you have mistaken for an amorous partner. You just have to shake it off. There's a constitutional right to the Pursuit of Happiness, and you have a moral obligation to try to catch it, even if that bugger is too slippery to hold onto for very long.

Re: “The Seismic Shift in Voting Demographics

I see that the two snake oil salesmen from Latino Memphis, Ashby & LaRosa, have returned from their siesta to once again try to peddle their dishonest and despicable illegal immigration agenda. Latino Memphis must have received another big check from National Council of La Raza.

For those who don’t know, the word “La Raza” translates to “the Race” – AND THEY’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE OLYMPICS. La Raza has been referred to as the Latino KKK – BECAUSE IT IS.

Even Cesar Chavez, the great American labor leader and civil rights activist didn’t like La Raza. Chavez was once quoted as saying, “Some people don’t look at it as racism, but when you say ‘la raza,’ you are saying an anti-gringo thing, and it won’t stop there. Today it’s anti-gringo, tomorrow it will be anti-Negro.”

AND GUESS WHO (according to the I.R.S.) is one of the biggest donors to Latino Memphis? That’s right folks, La Raza. As a wise man once said, “FOLLOW THE MONEY.”

So, Ashby & LaRosa, you can continue making all the deceptive and dishonest sales pitches you want. You can label any and everyone who refuses to bend or break our laws and legal principles just to grant amnesty/citizenship to the tens of millions of border cheaters in this country – 60% of whom are Latino.

You can inundate us with all of the touching, ludicrous sob stories you want. You know, the typical Oliver Twist like stories of how the parents of Juan and Maria forced them as small children to illegally come to the U.S. sooooooooooo many years ago and how racist, unfair and all-around wrong-headed it would be for us to deport them and to hold them to the same laws everybody else who wants to live in the U.S. must abide by.

You know, because Juan is so close to perfecting his high school science fair project on cold fusion that promises to give the whole world cheap and clean energy. You know, because Maria is so kind and selfless that she devotes every single minute of her free time to reading to the blind and to acting as a surrogate mother to fledgling baby pandas that were orphaned when U.S. Border Control Agents viciously and cruelly gunned down the panda mother.

Try as you might, Ashby and & LaRosa, but some of us know what your/Latino Memphis’s/La Raza’s real agenda is. Despite what you constantly proclaim and attempt to sell to others, what you seek is not fairness or justice or what’s in the best interest of the U.S. as a whole.

INSTEAD, what you really seek is POWER -- divisive, corrupting power to use for your own benefit, not for the benefit of the U.S. as a nation -- as you claim. It just so happens to be brown power instead of white power or black power as in the past. Cesar Chavez knew that decades ago, and many of us LEGAL, LAW ABIDING U.S. citizens and LEGAL residents still know that truth today. We should be in no hurry to replace a white oppressor or black oppressor with a brown one.

Re: “Q & A with Thomas "Silky' Sullivan,

@ROCKABILLYCAT
I know this is 3 yrs stale but, I was one of those "Navy boys" in 1984. What you said hit home w me.
Grew up loving music and the Memphis scene was great... probably saw you playing in front of Friday's during the 3 months I was around...lol. Also saw Neil Young with the Shocking Pinks.
The Pub Crawl was one of the most memorable events in my enlistment. We made a long weekend of it spending money like, well, drunken aviators, on food, music, drinks. It was a sea of people! I lost my Silky's Diver bucket after waking up in a hotel shrubbery though.
What I didn't realize was that 1984 influenced government to shut the Pub Crawl down. That plus the drinking age went from 19 to 21, changing the bar scene pretty significantly. That kind of taints the memory a little bit.
