I don’t watch a lot of Lifetime movies and generally when I see one at all, it’s because I’m flipping around on the tube ( generally late at night ) looking for something to watch. And from time to time I see a movie on Lifetime that at the very least looks interesting, because even though it’s a cable network that’s based for women, ( not that there’s anything wrong from that ) they do a lot of mystery movies and even action/drama type programing and movies and you see people there that perhaps you’ve seen in other places and networks or movies, or you see people there that just aren’t very well-known if at all. Who perhaps come from the theater, independent films, or perhaps come down from Canada and are well-known there or not at all, but someone discovers them there or in America and decides they would be right for their Lifetime TV movie.

Actress Dina Meyer, sort of fits both roles as someone who has done several Lifetime films, who has been seen in other movies working for other film companies, been seen on TV and even in big Hollywood movies, but isn’t well-known in the sense where everyone who watches a lot of movies and TV has not only heard of her, but knows exactly who she is and what her background is. If The Boy Next Door has a star at all, it would be Dina Meyer who isn’t just the star of this movie, but is the only star in the movie. Perhaps the one actress or actor that someone who watches TV and movies on a regular basis that people have heard of and seen before. Not a knock on Dina or the rest of the cast, because this movie is actually pretty good and not just Dina but the cast in general. But this is a Lifetime movie and unless you’re Lifetime junkie The Boy Next Door from 2008, is probably not a movie that you think about or have ever heard of.

Dina Meyer, plays Sara ( last name apparently unknown ) who is a mystery writer who moves to a small town to finish her latest book and is dealing with writers book. Who meets a young man perhaps in his early 20s if that who lives next door to her at her new house. She sort of falls in love with Michael ( played by Christopher Russell and become obsessed with him to the point that she’s taking pictures of him everyday when he’s out in the yard. What seems like a very friendly and charming small town where the locals even seem welcoming of new residents, becomes very cold at least towards Sara when Michael turns up dead and it looks like he was murdered. And Sara becomes the local sheriff’s office prime suspect and everyone in the town now views Sara as the prime suspect in the murder case as well.

Sara, goes from being a well-known and successful mystery writer to an amateur snoop who is working on her own case to find out who actually murdered Michael. And I believe she plays the amateur PI role very well, but it’s not that believable I believe that someone with no law enforcement or investigative experience now all the sudden become a very good private investigator. The Boy Next Door has a real Hallmark Mystery or Hart To Hart mystery feel to it where amateur snoops, become the star investigators in the case and not only that, but they become the people who actually catch the killers and bring them to justice. But Dina Meyer does an excellent job of playing that role.

USA Network: In Plain Sight- Something About Mary McCormack

Source:Action

“Sundays, 10/9c beginning June 1st. In Plain Sight is an hour-long drama that revolves around Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack), a tough, sexy US Marshal who works for the Federal Witness Protection Program. While many of the witnesses under her care are high-maintenance career criminals, some are just innocent people who had the misfortune of witnessing a crime or falling victim to one.”

From USA Network

Mary McCormack
Source:USA Network– There’s something about Mary McCormack.

Did In Plain Sight make actress Mary McCormack a star? I personally knew about her from watching her on ABC’s Murder One from back in 1995-96 where she played one of the lawyers at the firm there. And liked her back then both physically, but as an actress as well. And then about ten years later where she played the National Security Advisor on NBC’s The West Wing. The West Wing, goes off the air in 2006 and she gets In Plain Sight from USA a couple years later. She’s been around for a while and has been very successful for a while, but perhaps In Plain Sight made her a household name.

What In Plain Sight did for ( there’s a lot of something about ) Mary McCormack, is not just make her the star of that hit show from USA, but the main reason if not only reason to watch that show. She plays U.S. Deputy Marshal Mary McCormack, who is a badass Federal law enforcement officer who has a no bullshit ( to be frank ) attitude and doesn’t take anything from anyone, including her family. Who operates in a world where everyone around her is dependent on her and wants something from her.

Her no bullshit attitude operates in a world of bullshitters where both her mother and adult sister not just live with her, but are dependent on Mary for their economic survival. And she feels used and perhaps abused even by her own family and then she’s hard-ass U.S. Marshal who works for the U.S. Witness Protection Bureau and deals with professional bullshit artists for a living which just compounds all of her issues for her. And operates in a world where the only people she really trusts are the people she works with including her partner and supervisor.

Similar to Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order SVU who also plays a badass female cop, as tough as attitude and first impression is, she’s just too cute, beautiful, and feminine to completely fool people with her attitude. Mary McCormack, as well as her character U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon, is a tall, gorgeous, sexy, very cute sexy blonde who wears tight outfits on her show a lot and unless you’re gay or something, perhaps blind as well it would be very hard if not impossible to at least notice her, if not be attracted to her. On the outside she’s a very feminine and attractive woman, but with the attitude of an Army Drill Sergeant, where you would have to be a complete idiot to want to mess with her. And plays this role perfectly and makes a good show very entertaining all by herself.

 

Coyote Ugly 2000: Tyra Banks- Dancing On The Bar

I believe this was the first scene in Coyote Ugly where the bar was open. And Violet played by Piper Perabo walks in for her tryout or audition and sees the women on the bar in action. And she comes from somewhat of a culturally conservative background, which is one of the reasons why she goes to New York and sees these gorgeous sexy women.

And Tyra Banks perhaps being the best looking of these women dancing on the bar. And I’m not saying that Tyra is a great actress, I would argue that she’s not and fairly limited as an actress, but this scene wasn’t so much acting. But sexy women especially Tyra dancing on the bar and she looked as great and did as well as any professional Coyote dancer I believe at the real Coyote bar. And watching her dancing in those tight leather jeans and boots and it is the first scene where you get to see the bar in action, you knew you were watching one hell of a good sexy movie.

Michelle Rodriguez Brazil: The Fast And Furious Deleted Scene- Dom and Letty Garage Scene

“The Fast and the Furious Deleted Scene Dom & Letty Full Garage scene Kiss. Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel.”

From Michelle Rodriguez Brazil

The Fast and The Furious is not one of my favorite movies and certainly not a great movie and perhaps not even a very good movie. It is watchable and it is entertaining and has a lot of good car races and car chases. The cast is fairly good, but this movie is mostly a style movie intended on looking cool based on special effects, catch phrases and the people in it.

Not so much on plot and little and perhaps annoying things to young producers and directors today, things like acting and writing. Not a very good movie based on that, but that is not what this movie is about anyway. But perhaps the best three parts of this movie are Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel and Letty and Dom together. They actually seem like real people in this movie. And not people trying to be someone else. And they look great and are great together. As you see in this deleted scene.

 

Levis: 2001 Bellybutton Commercial

“Levis Bellybutton Commercial with a great song.”

From Driver 280

Back in the late 1990s and certainly by 2000, low-rise jeans, or as some others called including myself when you see women’s butt cracks and tattoos when they were sitting down and just standing up, when they would wear these very tight jeans, what were called low-rider jeans came out. By 2005 they were changed somewhat and we now have skinny jeans that we’ve been with ever since. And Levis was all over this with the designer denim revolution that remerged in the late 1990s and came back in style after going away by 1986 or so after they were in style from the late 1970s all the way up to 1985 or so.

These beautiful dark wash designer denim jeans. Back then the main designers were Jordache, Gloria Vanderbilt, (if you’re familiar with Threes Company and Mork and Mindy) Calvin Klein and of course Levis jeans. Today those designer denim jeans would be Seven For All Mankind, Express, True Religion and many others. That is what you see with this commercial here. A beautiful sexy woman, wearing a short top and super low low-rise Levis jeans, on beautiful summer day.
