Ryan Reynolds Is Hal Jordan. Feel My Excitement.

In Celebrities, Film on July 11, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Ryan Reynolds has been cast as Hal Jordan in the new Green Lantern movie. I understand that he’s becoming more popular but… meh. He’s so very, very meh. He just doesn’t feel like Hal Jordan. There’s something in the shape of his head (and how it looks disproportionately big on his body) that has never sat well with me.

Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto and Justin Timberlake also did screen tests for the movie but Reynolds ultimately got the role. And again, none of them particularly feels like Hal Jordan and they don’t really look like any of his comic or cartoon incarnations, do they?

This casting is puzzling.

Keanu Reeves Set To Destroy Another Classic With His Non-Expressionism

In Celebrities, Film on May 8, 2009 at 8:49 pm

Keanu Reeves seems to have taken the role of Dr. Jekyll in Jekyll, the ‘modern retelling of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde‘.

On the one hand, maybe portraying a split personality, especially one that is batshit insane, will finally allow Reeves’ face to be graced with some sort of expression. Or on the other hand, you know, not.

What do you think? Can this be salvaged/Will it be any good? Do we boycott or riot?

Zac Efron, Why Must You Be So Hot? And I Can’t Believe I Just Wrote That

17 Again receives an average of 6.2/10 from Rotten Tomatoes.

I’d just like to make some things clear: 1) I HAVE NEVER WATCHED HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL AND I NEVER, EVER, WILL. 2) I think Zac Efron is so very pretty. 3) Admitting to #2 makes me feel compelled to commit seppuku.

So… Ugh- I am actually having a hard time writing this. My brain knows it’s wrong.

I went to see the film yesterday with my friends (I couldn’t muster up enough courage to go alone) and at the end, I was asked why I wanted to see it/why was I cringing so badly now that the lights were back on. I physically could not finish the sentence: “I like Zac Efron.”

It came out sorta like this: “I like Zac Efra-Eflo-Efruuhh- Zac Efuck it, I can’t even say it right.”

Anyway, I am literally twitching as I write this so I’ll make it quick: I liked the movie, I will be buying the DVD, I would recommend going to watch it. That is all. Leave me alone. No, I am not going to watch it again. I won’t!

Spike’s Playing… Piccolo?

James Marsters has watched waaay more Dragon Ball Whatever than me, and he talks about it in this pretty link here.

But I honestly did not know he was in this movie. Because, dude, it’s Dragon Ball. I think I’m allergic to it.

I mean, I’ll still go watch the movie because the totally not-asian Goku looks kinda hot and damn it if I don’t feel dirty after saying that I have this pathological need to go to the cinema but still… James Marsters as Piccolo? Really?

Because Vladimir Putin has banned seal hunting.

This is quite old. But still. Cute.
