I SAW "NEW MOON"


AHHHHHH it wasn't as awful as the first? not to say it was great, but like, if you reduce your ... expectations and take in the fact that the young cast seems to have taken (some, Kristen Stewart, seriously, EMOTE) acting lessons in the past few months. but overall- the story itself is way too dry to do much with. and you know they're rushing these all out. meh. I enjoyed it. especially when the Grizzly Bear song played. Lykke Li and Thom Yorke also got nice parts. Taylor Lautner's six-pack (ten-pack? twelve-pack?) revealing drew hormonal gasps from the audience and one "IS THAT IT?" from some girl. Robert Pattinson...he just looks bad to me.

But I'm going to dedicate this post to Ashley Green, who plays Alice, easily the only character on there that could keep my interest.

AND HERE IS A NUGGET OF GOOD NEWS:


Greene will be reuniting with her Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz in the upcoming movie Warrior[10] and will also be starring in an upcoming thriller film, Summer's Blood,[11] as well as the Dark Castle Entertainment production The Apparition, which will begin filming on February 1, 2010.[12] Greene, in nothing but a bodypainted bikini, will be appearing in advertisements for SoBe that will run in the 2010 issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.[13]

Things to look forward to?

FINAL RATING: C+ or 6.2 on the 11 scale.....yup.

p.s. props to my girl Anna Kendrick, who plays one of the few friends Bella has that doesn't get sidelined by her weird obsession with Pasty Dead Boy. She was also in Up In the Air with G. Clooney and I think she probably has a lasting career ahead of her, despite the fact she's strapped playing a one-dimensional arm of Stewart right now. bah!

  1. dear useless critic,
    thank you so much for giving props to Ashley Greene. She is frickin awesome.
    In the whole Harry Potter vs. Twilight war my stance was....who cares? I just want to hang out with Alice Cullen. (Ashley Greene rules).

    and good luck to Anna Kendrick at the Oscars.

  2. Dear Nader,

    no probs! Harry Potter v. Twilight = a long string of BAHS. I'm not a big fan of either. but if Alice Cullen wanted to play Scrabble with me, who would I be to say no?

  3. hmm, it would be weird playing scrabble against Alice Cullen because she could know what letters she would get and what letters you could get...so she could plan around you and always win.

    I would rather play against Edward because although, he could read my mind, I would just think the same over and over "You're a Douche. You're a Douche. You're a Douche." I mean I would still lose, but I would win the real war.

"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

"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.

"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:
