Question: do these movies look like they will suck?

Exhibit A:

Leap Year, starring the adorable Amy Adams and an Irish-seeming, rugged-seeming Matthew Fox (last seen in the aforementioned ((go into archives)) A Single Man.

CHECK IT OUT



Prediction: will it suck? likely! it's too formulaic and Amy Adams, despite being a wonderfully gifted actress, falls into the trap of too-vanilla roles. if this ends up being false, if it ends up being that rare charmer of a predictable romantic comedy that will win over fans and critics alike, I will eat my boots.

Exhibit B:

Valentine's Day, which follows the lives of several couples in L.A. as they celebrate, well, you know. These couples include Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Topher Grace, Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift, Shirley Macclaine, Jessica Alba, Ashton Kutcher, Patrick Dempsey, Jennifer Garner, Jamie Foxx, ... the list goes on. I saw someone peg it as the American equivalent of Love Actually and it seems to be on that path!



Prediction: will it suck? no, it looks like it might come off as corny and dumb at times, but I think the over-arching theme and gifted cast should save it. unless something goes horribly, horribly wrong. like the Taylor x Taylor relationship. tear.

Comments

  1. Leap Year looks horrible. I'd expect more from Amy Adams. It looks shallow and predictable.

    At least Valentines Day has a shit-ton of celebs to laugh at (not with) during the movie. [I'm talking about the Taylors]

  5. I think Valentine's Day will be a good film. It seems like it is trying to balance humor in new ways; however, the film is using the now popular vignette compilation format.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
