Meagan Good & Michael Ealy at the Four Seasons Philadelphia

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Got a chance to be among the media photogs at The Prince Music Theater for Thursday night's preview of the the highly anticipated sequel, inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man” - Think Like A Man Too.

On the red carpet where "too" of it's beautiful stars Meagan Good and Michael Ealy who I'll get to interview tomorrow! Post update:  HERE's the mini interview.

Tinsel & Tine: Philly Film, Food & Events Blog

A lot has changed with Tinsel & Tine since Think Like A Man came out in 2012, I covered that red carpet for the film outlet Cinedelphia and therefore wasn't able to post the pics on T&T. Now all the invites are sent to me, including interviews with major actors like Michael Ealy and Meagan Good!

In Think Like A Man Too, a lot's changed with the characters based on Steve Harvey's book "Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man" -

  • The couple who were still living like kids dating in college, Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabrielle Union) are now married and trying to start a family, well, Kristen's ready, Jeremy is still on the fence.
  • Mya (Meagan Good) who was looking for a serious relationship and Zeke (Romany Malco) who was determined to keep things light, have kept things one on one, but serious enough for marriage?
  • Corporate powerhouse Lauren (Taraji P. Henson) and Chef Dominic (Michael Ealy) still have more than just a hot romance going on, but ambition could douse the flame.
  • Mama's Boy Michael (Terrence Jenkins) hasn't quite cut the apron strings, but extended them long enough to plan a wedding with Candace (Regina Hall) only Mom Loretta (Jenifer Lewis) still has a tight grip.
  • And last but certainly not least, Cedric (Kevin Hart) is once again separated from his wife Gail (Wendy Williams) and determined at all costs to be the best, Best man ever in the history of Las Vegas.

In Think Like A Man Too director Tim Story steers away from the dating/relationship/competition stuff and goes more for fun, high energy, crazy montages, random cameos and Vegas Baby!


The next day after the red carpet (click for Red Carpet Photos) I got a chance to chat with Meagan Good and Michael Ealy at The Four Season's Hotel.

The previous night I started to ask Michael a cooking question, since he plays a chef in the movie, and I wanted to get my picture taken with his gorgeous self; but decided since they arrived late and there were a lot of outlets waiting, I would just do it during my interview the following day. Unfortunately, (mostly unfortunate for him) Michael took ill and could only call into the interview for a quickie. Moral of the story: "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today".

Kevin Hart as Bam Bam the Vegas Stripper

I did get to ask Michael one great question via phone... "What have you learned about comedy now having played the straight man (Think Like A Man, About Last Night & Think Like A Man Too) against high octane Kevin Hart?"

Listen/Watch below video for answer ...

Le Anne Lindsay & Meagan Good

Meagan was in person (look at our great pic together), she's just lovely and almost zen. I got to ask her a couple of questions starting with... "You seem to be very much at peace with yourself and how you handle this industry and competition among other females. First & foremost I know you attribute it to your relationship with God, but do you also read books on spirituality? And if so, which ones do you recommend? "

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST


The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

By Tinsel & Tine Contributor Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef)

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE


...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST


With a film like this, food plays a main character in the story and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the film's Food Stylist, Janine Kalesis.READ POST

Food n Film: WAITRESS
In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
