Diehard fans of classic Hollywood starlet Raquel Welch will be happy to know that another of her films has been released on DVD. In “Flareup,” Raquel stars as a go-go dancer stalked from Las Vegas to Los Angeles by the psychopathic ex-husband of her friend. The trailer above is classic, as the dancing scenes from Raquel and her amazing figure are front and center in the promotion of the film. “Flareup” was released in 1969 and isn’t a particularly memorable film, so we’re assuming only her most ardent fans will check it out. But Raquel looks amazing as usual and she delivers a solid performance.
If you’re having superhero movie fatigue, you probably aren’t too thrilled about “The Avengers” coming out in 2012, while hard-core comics fans can’t wait.
Most movie fans are somewhere in the middle, and big movies loaded with stars will get plenty of buzz and probably generate a huge audience. “The Avengers” will be one of the biggest new movies of 2012, and you can catch a sneak peak with the new trailer.
I enjoy superhero movies as much as most people, but I was getting a little tired of the genre with the sheer number of new films being released. But I saw “Captain America” and was pleasantly surprised as it was one of the best new films of 2011. Chris Evans was excellent as Captain America and it had a pretty cool story. When you see the clip above, you’ll see some interaction between his earnest character and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, and you can see that the writer will have some fun with the various personalities. Throw in some eye candy with Scarlett Johansson and you have the ingredients for s solid film. That said, they better not screw up the villains!
Penelope Cruz arrives on the red carpet for the premiere of “Nine” at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.
We’re pretty confident that “Nine” isn’t at the top of your list for holiday movies. But, if you’re heading out with your gal pal, the chances are good she’ll be dragging you to this one. Now, if you hate musicals, then avoid this one at all costs. On the other hand, the photo above and the trailer below gives you an idea of why this flick might not be so bad. The cast is loaded with beautiful actresses, from Penelope to Fergie to Kate Hudson to Nicole Kidman. The film is also set in the 60’s and shot in Rome, so the visual experience will probably be quite enjoyable. So keep that in mind when your date suggests “Nine,” though you should definitely check back for the Bullz-Eye review before committing to it.
