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.

"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
