Tone Loc Suffers Seizure On-Stage In Iowa


Tone Loc

It’s not just Lil Wayne whose suffering in the rap fraternity at the moment, with news coming in that MC Tone Loc – whose heyday came in the 1980s – collapsed while performing on stage in Iowa.

Loc – real name Anthony T Smith – has had history of collapsing before. In 1995 he collapsed while attending a Los Angeles Lakers game, with no reason provided, while during a 2009 concert in Florida he suffered from a seizure. According to Sky News, this latest incident occurred while he was finishing a song at a show on Saturday night (March 16, 2013) with the concert subsequently ending abruptly and fans asked to leave while the 47 year-old was treated. Paramedics responded to the situation but Loc apparently refused to be taken to hospital. There has been no response from him or anyone involved with him either, so his current condition remains unclear. The star is best known for his 1980s hits Funky Cold Medina and Wild Thing,

It’s been well-documented recently that Lil Wayne suffered another seizure last week, following on from two he suffered from while on a plane, causing the flight to subsequently make an emergency stop. As with Loc, Wayne’s condition is unclear though it is believed that he is still in intensive care over his latest episode.

Whispers: An Elephant's Tale Review


Grim
Here's an experiment that has worked in the past (The Adventures of Milo and Otis) but which doesn't quite fly this time out.

Whispers: An Elephant's Tale -- like all live-action kiddie-fare about animals with human voices -- is about a lost baby elephant and his presumably incredible journey to find his way back home to mom. While Whispers might look like a real baby elephant on your TV set, he has a real human voice (that sounds remarkably like Babe the pig's) -- only his lips don't really move when he talks. Niether do the other animals, who communicate with more sarcasm than you'll find in the typical episode of Friends.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Review


Good
Where to start for a film like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is beguiling. Discuss its introduction of quite possibly one of the best comedic and dramatic actors of the last decade? Yammer on about its role in the eventual behemoth of the gross-out/slapstick comedy boom that would finally explode with the Farrelly brothers' There's Something About Mary? Dissect, with careful words, the forgotten, amazingly brief acting career of Funky Cold Medina's biggest fan, Tone Loc? One is at a loss of words as to where to begin to talk about this profoundly absurd film.

It begins with a dolphin. Snowflake, the Dolphins football team's mascot, has been kidnapped and after a brief search, it is decided that only one man is right for the job: Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey). Ventura specializes in crimes involving animals being stolen, lost or mistreated. He's also a total loon; hiding about two dozen species of animal in his apartment, taking dips in shark tanks and harboring an affinity for making his butt talk. When Ace, along with the football teams business assistant Melissa Robinson (Courteney Cox), takes the case, it leads him to a football player, Ray Finkle, who was fired after missing a field goal in the Super Bowl. The murder count rises and the morale of the Dolphins' players' dips as Ace tries to track down Snowflake before the "big game," while also butting heads with Lieutenant Lois Einhorn (a particularly thorny Sean Young).

Grim
Really bad Jim Carrey vehicle, his first to make any kind of money at the box office and establishing him firmly in the goofball pantheon. Carrey's gotten way better since then, but whew! this one's a stinker.

Titan A.E. Review


Grim
Good Will Hunting goes to space in Titan A.E., an ill-conceived and overambitious animation blowout (courtesy of 20th Century Fox) that makes recent Disney fare look like thinking men's movies.

Matt Damon's voice stars as Cale, an eager-beaver twentysomething in the year 3028 who would be just like any other next-millennium Gen X-er if not for one thing: A race of evil beings called the Drej -- made of pure energy, natch -- have blown up the earth.
