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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
