Andrew Stanton Offers ‘John Carter of Mars’ Update →
I did not know Michael Chabon co-wrote the script. It sounds like I’ll have to wait till 2012 to see the end product.
Casting ‘The Hunger Games’: The Playlist Picks For... →
This is pretty dear to my heart, so I hope they don’t screw it up. Overall, I think most of the names mentioned for the teen roles are way too old. Catherine Scott mentions Paul Wesley from The Vampire Diaries to play a 17 year old. Really? That’s ridiculous. I would love to see Hailee Steinfeld play Katniss, but I agree that she’s a bit too young, though she could definitely...
‘Bridesmaids’ Poster Arrives And Asks You To “Save... →
With Judd Apatow producing, this could be really good. Beside the slew of women, it also has Jon Hamm in it. I’m really looking forward to seeing Ellie Kemper, Erin on The Office, be someone other than Erin.
A few months ago there was news of the first look of the new Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess movie, One Day, an adaptation from a book of the same name. A few months later, while reading all the “best of” lists of 2010, I noticed that One Day by David Nicholls was consistently on everyone’s Best 2010 Reads lists. That, plus the fact that in the last two months I’ve read...
Javier Bardem Offered Role In ‘James Bond 23’ →
Daniel Craig, Sam Mendes and…Javier Bardem? Can’t think of a more potent Bond mix.

Henry Cavill Cast as ‘Superman’ →
As it appears, Henry Cavill as Superman is a pretty surprising choice. Though this “reboot” comes 6 years after the last “sequel“—also known for being a horrible movie with a ridiculous story line (come on, he was stabbed with kryptonite!)—I am intrigued. I’ve always wondered why Cavill hasn’t broken it big, what with his Hollywood-bound looks and charm. This...

The new Peep World trailer. This looks like it could be interesting. When is a dysfunctional family not?

Let’s hope the Packers pull this off.
Leslie: That's terrific. Or is that awful? I mean, he hates her, but he knows her. Everything's okay. Or is it just the same?
Tom: Leslie, you're thinking out loud again.
Leslie: Am I? I am.
Wow, Cutler is out. What a baby.
Gosling and Williams were quite good. The story however was pretty depressing. Great flick all around. http://bit.ly/fkN0US (via @GetGlue)
Bank Representative: $120 in tuition to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Leslie: They give you a little wand and a diploma. It's fun!
Tom: What did you major in?
Leslie: Potions. You know, I'm going to take you off speakerphone.
Leslie: I just have a few more questions for you, Ann. What if he shows up with another woman? What if one of my sleeves catches on fire and it spreads rapidly? What if instead of Tic Tacs, I accidentally pop a couple of Ambien and I have to keep punching my leg to stay awake?
Ann: Those are all insane hypotheticals and I promise you they won't happen.
Leslie: They have happened. All of these have happened to me.
Leslie: I know that you are not gay.
Tom: No, I'm not.
Leslie: But you're effeminate.
Leslie: Well, you're wearing a peach shirt with a coiled snake on it.
Tom: Yes, 'cause it was featured in Details magazine, and it's awesome.
When I saw the first trailer for Red Riding Hood, I actually was a bit excited. It looked like it would be a pretty visual movie. But now I feel like this trailer reveals way too much about the story. And as much as I love Nine Inch Nails, “The Hand That Feeds” seems to have been plopped in there for no apparent reason, kind of ruining it ever more for me. I still might watch this.
Listen! I will kill you, do you understand, I am from New York, my husband...– Jennifer Lopez to Ricky Gervais backstage at the Golden Globes Really? Marc Anthony “fights”? I highly doubt that. In fact, I’d probably pay money to see him get his ass handed to him.
What Could Have Been: ‘127 Hours’ Once Eyed By... →
I read this and I gagged a bit. I still haven’t seen the film, but based on what I have heard and read, there is no way Silver could pull this off the way Franco seems to have done.. That guy bugs the crap out of me. And Luke Perry? What has he ever done but star in crappy TV movies?
Trailer for Perfect Sense with Ewan McGregor and Eva Green. According to the plot description in the Sundance site, the movie is about a couple falling in love while a pandemic just starts infecting the world. Quite bizarre and not the best trailer to drive interest. I’ll keep my eyes out for hopefully a better one soon.
Robert Downey Leaves ‘Oz The Great And Powerful,’... →
The land of Oz is original and complex enough to be interpreted from so many different angles (please refer to Wicked, the novel more so than the musical). So when I first heard about some sort of “prequel”—though it doesn’t seem like that’s the appropriate way to define it—I was thrilled. And Robert Downey, Jr. as the Wizard? Even better! That guy has totally reinvented...
Anne Hathaway Cast As Catwoman In ‘The Dark Knight... →
After a heated discussion with a college buddy of mine, I actually think Anne Hathaway can pull this off. My friend was commenting that she cannot picture her playing a villain, which I agree with. We always see her as someone who’s transformed into a beauty, or someone who is tough and can hold her own. But then we saw her in Rachel Getting Married, where she was unbelievable. So different...
Tumblr Tuesday: When Parents Text
This has to be my new favorite site. When Parents Text is absolutely hilarious, and kind of makes me wish my parents texted. The older generations’ use of technology is quite amusing. Even more amusing is how overwhelming and annoying some of these parents can be. I guess I should be grateful my parents don’t text. Instead, I get random emails (usually drunk ones) from my dad, as well...

Sh!t's Falling Apart
I mentioned to my friend that I couldn’t believe it’s already 2011. He responded that he tries not to think of it since this could be the last year of our lives. What with all these animals dying (bees, birds, fish). So what if it really is our last full year? Kind of creep thinking about it. Good thing I already set my sights on going to Europe this year (preferably Germany for...
