Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.
I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.
I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.
For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.
I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.

Even though Pierce Brosnan will always be my favorite James Bond, I am deeply saddened that we lost our 1973 Bond, Sir Roger Moore, this week.
In remembrance, this week’s Fan Art Friday’s goes out to Sir Moore. Enjoy this sketch of the actor as James Bond by Patricio Carbajal, also known as Pat. I can’t get over how perfect the hair is in this rough sketch!
See more of Pat’s art at www.patart-pat.blogspot.com, and enjoy one of Sir Roger Moore’s James Bond scenes below.
Spanish gem Penelope Cruz is 43 today!
I guess she’s turning out to be one of those lucky people that age gracefully.
I’ve never watched any of her Spanish films, but I have seen her in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, both in which she played very bold characters. Her performance always grabs your attention, and I think she’s really great at making characters that would otherwise seem unrelatable have somewhat of a likeability factor.
In celebration of Penelope Cruz’s birthday today, I’ve decided to feature this piece of digital fan art by Barry Weatherley over at artbybaz.com for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. That look on her face, man—I wonder how her husband Javier Bardem handles all of that hotness on a daily basis!

Meryl Streep won the DeMille Award at the Golden Globes this year, and boy, was that one hell of an acceptance speech or what?!
I’ve loved Meryl in basically every movie I’ve seen her in, from Doubt to It’s Complicated. She’s timeless, and gives life to every character she plays.
In honor of her achievement, I’ve decided to feature this fan art of her from DeviantArt by Miko2660. She looks quite young in this piece of fan art, perhaps from the late ’70s. It was created using ArtStuido.
I love how she’s looking up in the piece, as if she’s in a state of utter bliss. Her hair also looks so wispy!

Boy, the award shows in 2017 going to have very long and incredibly sad “in memoriam” segments.
This week, we lost two amazing Hollywood actresses—Carrie Fisher (December 27) and her mother Debbie Reynolds (December 28).
This mother-daughter duo is definitely one to be remembered. I mean, how crazy is it that Reynolds’ last words were “I want to be with Carrie”?
The fan art tributes for both actresses so far have been really amazing. This one I found on Instagram by mllearole does a great job of capturing Fisher and Reynolds’ mother-daughter relationship. In it, the two stand together, hand in hand, head to head, Fisher dressed as Star Wars character Princess Leia and Reynolds dressed as Kathy from Singin’ in the Rain.
There’s so much softness and affection oozing from this fan art. I hope they both rest in peace, hopefully side by side, eyes closed just as they appear in this work of art.
Go show mllearole’s piece some love over on Instagram.
Thursday was the first day of winter, so it’s only fitting that I feature every kid’s favorite winter-themed animated film, Frozen on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.
I found this piece of fan art by A-KA over on Tumblr. Elsa, Olaf and Anna are in complete selfie mode in this colored pencil work of art, wide eyed and smiling as if they were posing for a selfie.

P.S. Did you really think I was going to end this without asking the most important question of the season?
Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.
How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!
Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.
