According to this article, Across the Universe is set to gain a cult following among teenage girls (probably bonding over their mutual lust for dreamy mcDreamstein JIM STURGESS). As you may recall, I called the movie a “magical train wreck” in my earlier review, but I have to tell you, I cannot stop listening to […]
Have you heard the Matt Damon game based on Team America on Scott Mills Radio 1 show? Hilarious.
Over the last week, I’ve seen two “movie musicals” of sorts–Julie Taymor‘s artful stab at a Beatles opera called Across the Universe, and Anton Corbijn’s Ian Curtis biopic, Control. Both movies had their strong points, but both had their weaknesses. The most succinct way of describing Across the Universe is to call it “a magical […]
Um… so is it wrong that I’m becoming obsessed with Zac Efron? I just watch the majority of High School Musical 2 last night and I was struggling to figure out if he was gay or not the entire movie. I’d go back and forth… it’s kinda a toss up. Oh, and according to a […]
On Monday I went to a screening of Ethan Hawke‘s new old movie, The Hottest State, which is based on his novel of the same name. William (Mark Webber) is a fledgling young actor who falls for a quiet, reserved girl named Sarah (played by Catalina Sandino Moreno) and the movie chronicles the rapid growth […]

Hey guys–sorry my updating has been very lacking of late. I’m steadily and rapidly falling into old lady-hood, as you can probably tell by my choice of delicious links. Oh yeah, and I started doing yoga again. I’m trying out a bunch of studios in downtown Manhattan, so if you have any recommendations, let me […]
Link from Sarah: What do you think? Yay or nay? I say the trailer is not amazingly good/bad enough for me to figure it out.
Something about the still below is “more than meets the eye”, no? Yesterday the Backseat Blogger and I were watching the new Transformers movie trailer when half way through I started bursting out laughing–someone in the costume department sure does love the scruffy lads from NYC, because they decked Shia LaBeouf‘s character in a classic […]
Two tv/movie related things I discovered this weekend: 1. The movie Sky High. Holy crap. No, it’s not a movie about smoking the pot. It’s a totally cheese-filled and predictable, but an all sorts of awesome tween movie starring Michael Angarano, aka the cute kid who played Jack’s son of Will and Grace. You will […]
