The ultimate guy’s review. From movies and TV shows to books and CD’s, find out what’s new for your guy.


Book- Thank You and Your Welcome: Kanye West with J.Sakiya Sandifer.
Who doesn’t want to be like Kanye West? He’s an amazing producer and rapper who can dress to kill and also is a lot smarter than people give him credit for. After reading his book almost a year ago, we feel it’s about time his words of wisdom get some respect. This 52 page (wish it was longer) book features quotes by West that not only showcases his brilliant ideas, but also reveals the pretty creative way in which the book was put together. It’s definitely worth a read and gives great advice.

Movie- The Hangover
To put it quite simple, take the 2000 classic “Dude where’s my car?” but replace the car with a groom and you have the ultimate bachelor party movie.  After a wild drunken night, three friends wake up in a hotel room minus one very important person, the groom.  Follow three groomsmen as they retrace their steps through Las Vegas trying to find their soon-to-be married best friend.

Starring funny men such as Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers, He’s Just Not That into You) and Zach Galifianakis (Out Cold, Corky Romano). If you haven’t seen the trailer we suggest you check it out ASAP.

Girl- Rashida Jones (I Love You, Man & The Office)
Sexy, smart, talented and funny are only a few words to describe Rashida Jones. She’s a musician, which she gets from her dad, Quincy Jones. She’s also a Harvard graduate, a philanthropist in which she does work for International Peace Games.

TV Show- Spike TV’s “Deadliest Warrior”
One of the great male bar debates of all time is the “Knight vs. Pirate” or “Samurai vs. Viking.” Finally someone has put science behind it to prove the facts. Watch as experts test weapons and skills that different warriors used over the centuries. After the results are taken a winner is determined. Since its debut April 7th, Deadliest Warrior has started to become one of the hottest shows on television.

CD- Chester French (Jacque James/Love The Future)
After a successful single was released on ITunes, crazy mix tape (Jacque James) was posted on their website for a free download; Chester French has finally come out with their debut album, “Love the Future”. Chester French is a mix of old and new, it almost sounds like the Beatles and Outkast got together and worked out a new amazing sound.
