Safe House. Universal Pictures

Universal Pictures hope the answer will be yes about "Safe House" and Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington dazzling in it.

Universal Pictures is in a rut but this movie slated for a February release should help the studio big time.

Ryan plays a rookie CIA agent going after Denzel Washington who plays a renegade CIA agent who has been gone for the department for over a decade.

The poster above was just released and if the movie is as good as the poster, then Universal will be kicking of 2012 right.

What do you think of the poster?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Ryan will give movie goers several expressions during this movie....

No. 2 The Death Of Heath Ledger

January 22nd, 2008 in New York, Heath Ledger died.  He died of an apparent overdose.  The movie industry, movie fans, and fans of the actor were in shock.  His loved ones in disbelief.

You know when you heard his name as the one who had died, your mouth dropped.  You did a double take.  Your first thought after the shock; he was so young.  Sleeping pills did him in. Sleeping pills.

He admitted in interviews that he was having a rough time sleeping after playing the villain Joker in the latest Batman movie, the Dark Knight.  One pill, which should knock you out for 8 hours, would knock him out for 90 minutes.  So he would take several instead of understanding his body became immune to the pills shortly after taking them.

The Dark Knight movie seemed cursed from the get go.  A stuntman died the 1st week of shooting.  Another death happened.  Then Heath's after filming.  Then Morgan Freeman escaped death in the south.  The weekend of the movie, Christian Balle's estranged family came after him.  Crazy.  Maybe Johnny Depp may want to rethink that Riddler character.

Heath Ledger jumped on the screen in 1999's Ten Things I Hate About You.  Having modest success with movies such as A Knight's Tale, he took on the role of a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain.  Not getting the Oscar and jokes behind his back, Heath stood out in a role that would have been taboo and untouchable years prior, but he took the role which gained him respect.

After agreeing to take the Joker role, some questioned his acting ability to do that and how could a person who played a gay cowboy play that role.  Leaks of Heath dressed in Joker garb dispelled most of that talk and had people going, wow, he is actually going to pull this off.  It is a shame that Heath did not live to see how respected his version of the Joker is.  How respected he is.

I must reiterate; If Heath does not only get nominated for an Oscar, and if he does not win it, the Academy Awards in many industry insiders eyes, will now be deemed as useless.  Think of it as giving Denzel the Oscar for Training Day instead of the countless other movie roles he owned over the years.  Why so serious?  Because Heath Ledger was the Best in movies of 2008.-Dr.FB

When I said anyone who is someone would be at the Lakers-Celtics game today, you knew I was telling the truth.  What a game.  What a list of celebrities.

Mark Wahlberg, Kevin James, Adam Sandler, NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shwayze member Cisco Adler with father Lou Adler, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Cannon, Dustin Hoffman, George Lopez, Michael Clarke Duncan & wife, The Music Icon Prince with Bria Valente, Denzel Washington, and Rap Legend Snoop Dogg.

If you were not lucky to get the hook-up for courtside seats, they were going for $10 grand a seat.  10 grand! 

As for the game, the Lakers won and I am happy but remember, trophies are not handed out in December.-Dr.FB

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale also took in the Laker game last night.

Other stars in attendance were Dr.funkenberry fav's Denzel Washington, Alyssa Milano, Spike Lee (non too happy about the Knicks loss) Chris Rock (who gave props to Trevor Ariza (Laker player) after the game as well as the before mentioned Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgons.  Not spotted by us but we hear Leo Di Caprio & David Beckham were there as well.

This celeb crowd is just a warm up for the big game December 25th at Staple Center between the Lakers & The Celtics, a rematch of last years NBA Finals.  It pains me to say this but I think my Lakers are overhyped and Kevin Garnett and Boston will come in and win.  I hope they prove me wrong but right now, Boston is the better team.-Dr.FB
