I don’t know how many of you remember the original “Dumb and Dumber” that was released back in 1994, but it was hilarious and a huge success. The prequel “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” that went out in 2003 and didn’t include Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels was a complete disaster though and I wasn’t expecting any new sequel after that, unless both original actors agreed to take part in it and that’s what happened.

“Dumb and Dumber To” brings back Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, aka Lloyd and Harry as they try to convince people 20 years later that “if they each had half a brain, together they would still only have half a brain”. It’s a fun movie to watch and if you liked the randomness of the first movie, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Grand Cinemas launched a new popcorn yesterday, the Air Popcorn which is a low-cholesterol and oil free brand of popcorn. I think it’s a smart idea specially when you’ve just had a heavy dinner and still want to have some popcorn or if you’re just on diet or have a high cholesterol. As far as the taste is concerned, the salt type is almost tasteless while the cheese version was saved by the cheese.

El Hamra Cinema Brought Back To Life As Tyre Hosts Its First Ever International Film Festival

Posted By :

Hamra-Tyr

El Hamra Cinema was built in 1952 and used to be the cultural hub of the city of Tyre before the war started. After being closed for 30 years, Kassem Istanbouli and his team decided to bring the place back to life and hosted at first an International Theater Festival back in June 2014, and then Tyre’s first ever international film festival between November 8 and 11.

Ayyam al-Hamra al-Cinemaiyya brought short films from more than 12 countries in Europe and the Arab world, with the aim of “promoting culture and creativity and to create a space for people to meet and exchange experiences of cinema”. The event is supposed to become an annual one, held each November.

I think this is a great initiative as Tyre (and other cities) needs such a venue for cultural expression and for people to enjoy a positive and enriching experience. Check out the theater’s Facebook page [Here].

Actors You Find In All Lebanese TV Series

I don’t follow Lebanese TV series but every time I spot one of these shows on TV, I find the same people acting. Whether it’s drama, comedy, action, family, lifestyle, Syrian-Lebanese, Egyptian-Lebanese, Turkish-Lebanese or any type for that sake, you always find the same people in different roles, as if we only have a dozen of actors in Lebanon and that’s about it.
