Al Gore

Revenge Of The Nerds.

October 1st, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

Last week, former U.S. veep Al Gore received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. An Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe, a walk on La Croisette, Leo Di Caprio on his speed dial: Al Gore has made it. For many years, he was associated with stiffness and having a wife who didn’t enjoy Prince’s Purple Rain but [...]

Advertisement On The Podium.

August 14th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Watching the Olympics, it’s easy to get lost between endorsements and products placements as both Athletes and venues are draped in logos and brands. Commercials for the Olympics however, sometimes manage to capture the depth of athletes’ dedication and sacrifice without shoving logos down our throats.My gold medal goes to Nike and the silver, to [...]

Carrie. Miranda. Samantha. Charlotte.

June 9th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

I wanted to write this post right after I saw the movie, the night of its premiere in Montréal. I instead decided to wait until more faithfuls had seen it, more reviews had been published and once the hype had diminished, even if just little. First, a disclaimer: I adored the series from the very [...]

How Do You Spell Privacy?

January 24th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Since Heath Ledger’s death two days ago, the media attention has been more on how he died than what he actually accomplished in his short life. What Heath Ledger did is public domain as he chose to be an Artist and to share his Art through films. Who Heath Ledger was is private. Do we [...]

Untimely

January 23rd, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

The cause of death has yet to be confirmed but regardless, it was senseless.When I heard of Heath Ledger’s death yesterday, images of his last interview came to mind. He seemed tired, uncomfortable, burdened. Epithets uncharacteristic of his youth, his talent, his promise. But watching news reports of his death, I realized that all concentrated [...]

Picking the Right Battles

October 16th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

This is one of these days when little makes sense. Former lead singer of French Rock-Band Noir Désir, Bertrand Cantat, is being released today after serving four of the eight-year jail sentence he received for the brutal and deadly beating of his former love, French actress Marie Trintignant. Four years? I’m disgusted. Enough with defending [...]

In Michael We Should Trust

July 11th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Michael Moore is fat and not-fashionable. Perhaps in this look-obsessed society, this is why we tend to see him as a marginal standing on a soap box. But, whether we like it or not, he delivers the bitter bill we fight to not swallow. On CNN last night, the filmmaker blasted my beloved Wolf Blitzer [...]

Private Matters

May 30th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

News directors need a reality check. From Larry King Live to national news broadcasts, all reported last night on Lindsay Lohan’s latest debacles and immediate return to rehab. Substance abuse is difficult and its resolution is painful, private and hardly news material. I couldn’t care less about Lindsay Lohan but it pisses me off that [...]

A Mighty Faux Pas

May 23rd, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

One might be blinded by the flashbulbs and all around fabulousness of La Croisette in Cannes but when Brad and Angelina came out to play with the other stars in the South of France, there was for me at least, more that met the eye. The golden , at the glitzy Film Festival to promote [...]

I Had The Time of My Life

May 8th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Just when you figured out a Botox allowance in your budget and thought you could escape the ravages of time, BAM! an event sneaks in to remind you that you are almost as old as dirt and that no matter how many cool tech gadgets you own hoping to stay cool, the hands of time [...]
