TauBu Girls’ November Flick Picks


A buxom new Bond girl, a taboo romance and a thriller that will truly get under your skin are among the TauBu Girls’ November flick picks…

  • Skyfall, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Jamile was first in line for this one. James Bond is back on the big screen and this time, cinema’s favorite spy must keep a computer drive with a list of British agents from being used against them. In a botched shot by a fellow operative, Bond (Daniel Craig) takes a bullet, falls into the river below and is believed dead. M, head of the Foreign Intelligence wing of Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is told to pack it in, but she won’t budge until the matter of the missing drive is resolved – never mind that massive explosion that happens as she returns to headquarters. Suddenly, Bond is back from the formerly-presumed-dead and hot on the trail of the drive-swiping victim, who turns out to be a blast from M’s past. We love the plot, but we’re really stoked about the motorcycle chase scene along unnervingly narrow, roofline walkways that features Freestyle Motocross champ Robbie “Maddo” Maddison as Agent 007′s stunt double.
  • In Their Skin, Nov. 9: TauBu Girl Megan loves a great psycho-thriller. After the accidental death of their six-year-old daughter, the Hughes family jettisons their busy upscale suburban life and takes refuge in their isolated lakefront cottage. If you can call it a “cottage,” that is. This place is massive. Anyway, hoping that some company will provide a comforting distraction from their grief, they invite their friendly neighbors over for dinner. Trouble is, their neighbors are not only obsessed with their perception of the Hughes’ perfect life, and they’re certifiably crazy. Selma Blair, Rachel Miner, Joshua Close and James D’Arcy star.
  • Anna Kerenina, Nov. 16: Ever the romantic, TauBu Girl Kimberley is waiting with baited breath for Anna Kerenina, an epic love story based on a Leo Tolstoy book. Set in late-19th-century Russia high-society, the film follows Anna (Keira Knightley), an achingly beautiful aristocrat as she falls helplessly in love with the affluent Count Vronsky. Trouble is, she’s very much married to the wealthy and well-connected but emotionless Alexi Kerenin (Jude Law) who warns his wife, “You may, by indiscretion, give the world occasion to talk about you.” But women in hot, illicit love never listen. Ergo, Anna’s affair erupts into an international scandal. Taboo, indeed.

TauBu Girls’ September Flick Picks

Milla Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, fighting flesh-eating zombies and armed Umbrella Corp. troops in “Resident Evil: Retribution.”

September is a good month for gamers and moviegoers. The TauBu Girls share their picks for this month’s best new movies and one video game-inspired film tops the list.

  • Resident Evil: Retribution, Sept. 14: Gorgeous badass Milla Jovovich is back in TauBu Girl Rachael’s top September flick pick, Resident Evil: Retribution. Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, the human race’s last home against the evil Umbrella Corporation and its deadly T-Virus that’s transforming the global population into legions of flesh-munching undead. Her escape from Umbrella’s clandestine operations facility has her fighting both zombies and armed Umbrella troops by the dozens from Tokyo to New York to Washington, D.C. to Moscow as she hunts down the suits responsible for the T-virus outbreak. Sexy Michelle Rodriguez and Austrian hottie Boris Kodjoe also star.
  • House at the End of the Street, Sept. 21: TauBu Girl Jamile loves a good crime mystery, so she’s anxious for the release of House at the End of the Street. Elisabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence star as a mother and daughter who set up a new life for themselves in a small, upscale rural town after a devastating divorce. The daughter befriends the boy next door, whose sister had murdered their parents. Soon, it becomes frighteningly obvious that the horror story ain’t over.
  • Looper, Sept. 28: TauBu Girl Megan admits to being a bit of a sci-fi geek, so she’s stoked for the opening of Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. It’s the year 2072 and when the mob chooses a mark, the target is sent 30 years into the past. There, in 2042, a hired gun waits to mow down the mob’s marked man, virtually erasing him from the future. Joe, played by Gordon-Levitt, is one of those specialized assasins, dubbed “loopers” and thinks he’s in good with his bosses – that is, until he recognizes a victim as his future self (played by Willis). Face your past, fight your future, as the film’s tagline reads.

What movie are you waiting to see in September? Grab a cool can of Evil Apple, Wicked Punch or Midnite Berry and take a look at the trailers for the TauBu Girls’ picks. Then, post your own on the TauBu Facebook fan page.

TauBu Girls’ July Movie Picks

The summer blockbuster season is fully ablaze. Here are the TauBu Girls‘ picks for the best movies to see in July.

Savages, July 6: TauBu Girl CeCe was first in line to see Savages, the Oliver Stone-directed crime thriller starring Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson as Chon and Ben, two high-end pot growers who must face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend played by Blake Lively. The merciless head of the Baja Cartel, played by Salma Hayek, and her enforcer, played by Benicio Del Toro, think that forcing Chon and Ben to join them will be easy. Oh, but they sorely underestimate the two friends’ unbreakable bond and their love for the beautiful Ophelia. Add a dirty DEA agent played by John Travolta, and you’ve got a vicious, high stakes battle of wills. Just a warning – a few taboo torture scenes caused several women in the audience to walk out of the screening, CeCe says. But if you can stomach the violence, the story line and the strong cast make this a great cinematic experience.

Dark Knight Rises, July 20: You might not know it, but TauBu Girl Megan is a bit of a superhero geek. So you know she’ll be at the front of the line on opening night of Dark Knight Rises, the latest in the Batman series. The story picks up eight years after Batman took the fall for Two Face’s crimes and features Bane, a new terrorist played by Tom Hardy. Gotham’s finest is struggling to hold Bane and his plans to destroy the city at bay. So, despite his tarnished reputation, the caped crusader, again played by Christian Bale, resurfaces to help protect the city that has branded him an enemy. Also starring are Hollywood heavy-hitters Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Ann Hathaway and Michael Caine.

The Watch, July 27: TauBu Girl Nicole is a bit of a brainiac, but still loves a great, goofy spoof flick. She’s looking forward to the sci-fi comedy The Watch, starring Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade as four suburban dads-turned-neighborhood watch guys. They really just want an honorable excuse to ditch their boring day-to-day family routines one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they man up to save their neighborhood and the world from total annihilation.

How Do You TauBu for the Fourth of July?

The TauBu Girls want to know - How will you celebrate Independence Day?

Tomorrow is Independence Day – the day Americans celebrate telling British royalty to kiss their collective rear ends, sailing across the ocean and starting their own country. It doesn’t get much more politically taboo than that. How will you celebrate?

TauBu Girl Diamond is hitting the beach. TauBu Girl Jolyne is throwing a huge picnic party for family, friends and military members in her area. TauBu Girl Megan is taking part in an Independence Day parade. And TauBu Girl Yashira is holding a patriotic movie marathon via a huge screen set up in her back yard.

Of course, they’ll be serving up lots of ice cold TauBu beer with their barbecue, burgers, hot dogs and apple pie and settling in for fireworks shows come nightfall.

TauBu Girls See Prometheus, Share their All Time Fave Alien Flicks

The TauBu Girls aren’t much for chick flicks. So they were stoked for a GNO to see Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s newest film about a team of scientists who head out into the far reaches of space to investigate alien life forms.

The crew boards the U.S.S. Prometheus in the year 2089 and hibernates with an android at the flight controls, arriving landing on a distant planet with a large, temple-like pyramid structure in 2093. A giant humanoid head statue, dead aliens, a crazy storm and ampoules of a weird black liquid all play a part in the near total destruction of the crew, the ship and, potentially, the human race.

We won’t spoil it for you, but suffice it to say that the TauBu Girls loved it. And apparently, so did the rest of the world. Prometheus grossed $141.5 million worldwide over the weekend, coming in second (behind Madagascar 3) in U.S. box office figures.

Since they’ve promised not to spill any spoilers on Prometheus, the TauBu Girls decided they’d share their other all-time favorite alien flicks…

  • TauBu Girl CeCe: “I’m a big fan of all three Alien movies, but Alien 3 is my personal favorite for one reason – any woman who can rock a fully shaven head like Sigourney Weaver has my respect. Bald, badass and beautiful!”
  • TauBu Girl Megan: “I’m a sucker for classic films, so the original The Day the Earth Stood Still from 1951 is one I can watch over and over again. It has a great, before-its-time twist in that the aliens are the good guys and the humans are the bad guys. The aliens basically tell us to grow up and get along or die.”
  • TauBu Girl Nicole:Who says alien movies have to be all seriousness and special effects? Mars Attacks! has the funniest story lines, obnoxious characters and hilarious sight gags. I love crazy Grandma – ”They blew up Congress! Hahaha!’ And I want that Martian girl outfit, hair and all.”

Grab an ice cold TauBu of your favorite flavor and watch the trailers for the TauBu Girls top alien flick picks. And let us know which alien movie you like best on the TauBu Facebook fan page.

 


Meet Megan: June 2012 TauBu Girl

June 2012 TauBu Girl Megan loves the Las Vegas lifestyle.

Hi there! My name is Megan and I was born and raised in the fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. No, I do not live in a hotel. However, living 10 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip my whole life has been quite an experience. I tended to avoid the Strip unless I was hitting up one of the amazing pools, like the Mandalay Bay Beach. Instead I was thrill seeking whether it was cliff jumping at Nelson’s Landing on the Colorado River, riding motorcycles, hiking through caves, going shooting, snowboarding at Lee Canyon Ski & Snowboard Resort or attending local rodeos.

Although my tomboy ways never faded – I still love that extreme sports adrenaline rush – I also have a girly side that comes out in my dancing. I started dancing at the age of three and have loved it ever since. I’ve studied tap, jazz, hip hop, pointe and competitive, but tap is my favorite. I danced on my high school dance team during my freshman and sophomore years. After graduating from high school a year early with honors (oh, yes – I’m sexy-smart!), I headed to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I’m currently a Biochemistry major with a minor in dance. Eventually, I plan a career as a Physical Therapist.

Until then, I work in an optometry office as an assistant and model part time to have fun and meet new people. In Las Vegas there are hundreds of conventions each year. Through my talent agency I am booked as a brand model or greeter with some of those conventions including the Magic Fashion Convention. This year I hope to be booked with SEMA which is a massive car convention hosted at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Vegas is so much more than just a party city. People live, work, and play here both on and off the Strip. I live for my family and friends and to have fun! Life is all about having fun, succeeding, and striving for what you want in life.

My motto: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

My favorite quote: “God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.”
