Watch a 'lost' Le Brun painting be restored at the Louvre Lens Museum
Yahoo News - 7 months
Until August 12, visitors to the Louvre Lens Museum -- a regional branch of the world famous Paris museum in northern France that opened in 2012 -- can watch the live restauration of a Le Brun painting, previously believed lost for almost 200 years. The "Le Christ au jardin des Oliviers" by Charles Le Brun was originally commissioned by the Marquise du Plessis-Bellière, around 1660, and was later bought by the Sun King Louis XIV himself. In 2008 the painting was discovered in a monastery in Orne, a region to the north of France where it had been forgotten about since 1820.

Little-known Sung Kang shoots a record 60 to tie for lead at Pebble Beach
LATimes - about 1 year
A couple of days ago, Ray Romano couldn't have picked PGA Tour pro Sung Kang out of a lineup on the driving range at Pebble Beach. Kang could hardly be offended. He had no clue who the Emmy Award-winning star of "Everybody Loves Raymond" was either. Told by friends he would be partnered with the...

Art Adventures Worthy of the Holiday Season
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This is the time of year when all of us want to be happy and jolly. But with many recent events, both here and abroad, keeping our spirits high is not as easy as one would hope. So today, I want to share with you three cultural adventures I enjoyed over the last few days. And I hope you too get the chance to experience them and get a kick out of them the way I did. Let's start with Cirque du Soleil, which brought its latest phantasmagorical show, Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities, to LA's Dodger Stadium. It's near impossible to describe what is happening under their trademark blue and yellow striped tent. The acrobats survive near-impossible stunts that make the audience gasp. The musicians and singers successfully compete with the acrobats for maximum attention. Constantly changing set designs, fabulously ridiculous costumes and props, all of this made me -- and seemingly everyone else in the audience -- gasp and giggle like little kids. Yes, my friends, you simply don't w ...

Zaki's Review: <i>Furious 7</i>
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
With the tragic and unexpected death of star Paul Walker in late 2013, the Fast &amp; Furious franchise was hit with a nearly insurmountable challenge heading into its seventh lap. Production on the latest installment was only partially completed at the time of his passing, and the filmmakers had to scrap preexisting plans, honor the actor, acknowledge his passing, and write out his character, all the while delivering the hard driving intensity the series has become synonymous with after 14 years. No mean feat, that, and the franchise's minders deserve all the props in the world for pulling it off with Furious 7. As you may recall, Fast &amp; Furious 6 from two years ago was actually my very first foray into the wide world of the Fast sequels. I'd watched the original way back in 2001, but I'd mostly let the entries that followed in its wake pass me by. However, it became impossible for me to ignore the palpable anticipation that greeted the impending release of each new installment ...

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker: How the “Fast and Furious” franchise became a hit
Hollywood News - almost 2 years
Later on this week, the Fast and Furious franchise brings their seventh installment to the big screen with Furious 7. The sixth sequel in what is now a juggernaut of a series, we find things coming to a sort of fork in the road. Obviously, the death of Paul Walker has removed the long term dynamic of Vin Diesel and Walker leading the team, but the show goes on, as it were. The question that I had, as someone who only saw the first film and was more than a little surprised to see how the popularity of the series balloon, was just how this franchise became what it is today? For the few of you out there who aren’t familiar with the franchise, here’s a quick refresher now. The first film was The Fast and the Furious, directed by Rob Cohen and starring the group of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster. It was essentially Point Break with cars instead of surfing, and obviously was a hit. Next came 2 Fast 2 Furious, which has only Walker return, this time with a ...

I Think My Wedding Table Exploded
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Bonjour, wedding planner! 'Tis I! The blushing bride-to-be. I heard you had a smidge of trouble interpreting the 35-page PowerPoint presentation of my wedding table vision that I overnighted to you. Personally, I'm confused by your confusion, but I'm guessing it had something to do with my Louis XIV-meets-great-plains-of-Nebraska table theme? I told you my mother (DNA testing to prove motherhood pending) is forcing me to get married there, right? You still don't understand how 17th century imperial France could blend seamlessly with the Husker State? I see. Well, let me explain. The first thing you need to imagine is that the table is an enchanted forest come to life with over one thousand white flowers, billowing blades of wheat -- we'll need custom ceiling fans for that -- cornmeal shaped into Pawnee and Lakota tribal patterns and a few artfully placed wooden birds carved from local Silver Maples. I want it to feel organic and relaxed, but not be organic or relaxed. Okay, so th ...

Review: 'Vehicle 19' delivers in its own right
LATimes - over 3 years
Though it's not 'Fast and Furious,' the film doesn't try to be. It's 100% car-centric and includes a nifty grocery store chase. Six films into "The Fast and Furious," Vin Diesel, The Rock, Sung Kang, Ludacris and Tyrese have crowded Paul Walker out of his own franchise. With "Vehicle 19," Walker takes the wheel. Only now, it's on the wrong side of the dashboard.

Latinos Drive 'Fast & Furious 6' To The Top
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The hottest Latino actor in Hollywood right now may well be Michelle Rodriguez. She is the leading Hispanic star of “Fast &amp; Furious 6,” the latest installment in what has become a multi-billlion-dollar action film franchise that continues to hold the No. 1 box office spot for the second straight week. The film made $34.5 million in its second week after opening to more than $120 million in the U.S. alone over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. And Latinos are being credited for almost a third of the earnings. It is a big boost for Hispanic film-goers who have given ever-demographic conscious Hollywood a big reason to examine where much of its money is coming from. The industry was already aware that while Latinos represent only 18 percent of the movie-going population in the country, they account for 25 percent of all tickets sold, according to a Nielsen study. But the turnout for “Fast &amp; Furious 6″ exceeds even those figures. Michelle Rodriguez a c ...

Jonathan Kim: ReThink Review: Fast & Furious 6 - It's the Rock's World
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet both physically and financially, earning him the nickname "franchise Viagra" for his uncanny ability to appear in sequels and provide a burst of energy and enthusiasm to revitalize flagging franchises. It's the magic Johnson worked when he was brought into the fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious series, and it shows no signs of stopping with a massive $117 million opening weekend for Fast &amp; Furious 6. As Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman said of Johnson, "it's like everything you ever imagined in an action hero and then some." Though to be honest, I always knew it would be like this. I've been a fan of Johnson since his days in professional wrestling as the Rock, where Johnson's charisma, confidence, acting, and physical abilities were so captivating that fans just couldn't help rooting for him, even though he was cast as a villain. Now the non-wrestling world is getting a sens ...

Latinos Have A Tough Time In Hollywood
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Like most people aspiring to be actors, Jeremy Ray Valdez moved to Hollywood more than a decade ago. He quickly realized that the opportunities for Latino actors in Hollywood are limited. He said there are not as many roles for Latinos to play in Hollywood. Despite this, Valdez has been able to make a name for himself. The 32-year-old actor, who was born in New Mexico to Latino parents and was raised in Arizona, has appeared in nearly 40 television and film roles over the last decade. In 2010, he was awarded the Imagen Award for best supporting actor in ”La Mission,” a film in which he played the leading role of a gay young man. Throughout his career, he has also appeared in Disney Channel shows, like ”Drake &amp; Josh” and “That’s So Raven,” as well as in major television series, like “NCIS” and “Castle.” “I’m thankful to the mainstream Hollywood community for all the work I’ve gotten there, but at the same time, I’m not going to be waiting around for my phone to ring,” ...

Zaki Hasan: Zaki's Review: Fast & Furious 6
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Amazingly enough, before this week I hadn't seen a single entry in Universal's now-voluminous catalogue of Fast &amp; Furious movies. That didn't necessarily signal a lack of interest on my part, but simply a lack of energy. My fuzzy recollections of the first one, 2001's The Fast &amp; The Furious (back before they dispensed with the need for pesky things like definitive articles) were of a "hip &amp; cool" street-racing flick that cribbed liberally from 1991's Kathryn Bigelow-helmed Point Break while swapping Paul Walker for Keanu Reeves. I dunno, seemed like kind of a lateral move. And so, I scootched over to the slow lane and let it pass me by. But then a funny thing happened. The Fast &amp; The Furious didn't just spawn a sequel. Or even a franchise. It spawned a saga. And a passionate fan base right along with it that eagerly awaited each installment. That passion is something I didn't become fully aware of until I talked to my students, who greeted the arrival of 200 ...
