The Next Hobbit?

August 26, 2008

No, I don’t know some super-secret casting news about the supposedly-upcoming new movie of The Hobbit. Sadly. But, when I stumbled upon the picture with this article, I knew exactly who they should cast as Elijah Wood’s younger brother.

And to think he used to be so cute.

Trivial Procrastination

August 22, 2008

Empire Magazine has a really fun quiz. You identify movie posters from one letter. To be fair, I’m not sure if it is “really fun” for everyone or if I’m just a nerd and movie buff who is dying for new ways to procrastinate…

Their Daily Quiz is also a great timewaster, fyi.

My prayers have been answered. Thank you, Seth Green. Thank you.

I’m going to go dance to Fett’s Vette now in joyous thanksgiving.

“I’m not even supposed to be here today!”

July 28, 2008

Kevin Smith’s new movie, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, has an NC-17 rating.  It stars Seth Rogan and Elizabeth Banks.  Jason Mewes is obviously in it.  Oh, and so is Traci Lords.  I’m laughing too hard to write more.  I can’t wait until the actual film comes out.

PS – Seth Rogan annoys me for being only 2 years older than me and already much, much more successful.  And funny.  The successful I can deal with.  But why can’t I be that funny?


The New Love of My Life

July 28, 2008

I’ve been known to have passionate, ongoing affairs with various attractive male celebrities, and I appear to have just made another conquest. Or, rather, one of them just made a conquest of me.

I saw the new movie version of Brideshead Revisited (which Kaks is dreading) at a pre-screening the other night, and while I, like many young women, have been a fan of Matthew Goode since his turn as a dashing “undercover” British Secret Service Agent (American Secret Service, mind you) to Mandy Moore’s President’s daughter in Chasing Liberty, [ed – I have not, as even I did not sink low enough to actually watch Chasing Liberty. ed 2 – I have, since I kind of sort of own that movie. god my life is sad.] I think this is the movie that will finally shoot him into almost-stardom. (If Brideshead does well – and it might, as its makers clearly aim to cast it as this year’s Atonement, similarly banking on the fact that most people haven’t actually read the book – he might even reach stardom, but no matter what, the critics should like him.)

So, imagine my pleasure when I found this on the NYTimes.com… (I told you it was good for so many things).

Do yourself a favor and watch it. It just may make your day.
