"Remember Me" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Robert Pattinson Get? 


Confession Time – I was never a fan of Robert Pattinson. I am basing that assessment on the actor’s most famous role to date, the lovelorn vampire Edward in the “Twilight” films. I thought he delivered wooden performances in both movies.


But after watching Pattinson in the new film “Remember Me,” I can now honestly say, I’m intrigued by this actor. He carried the movie from its shaky start to its heart wrenching conclusion. Read More...

My Fun One-on-One Interviews with "She's Out of My League" Cast! It's Raunchy, It's Funny! 


First off, I truly laughed my booty off watching "She's Out of My League!" It's a feel good romantic comedy with a raunchy twist! Plus, it's nice to see Jay Baruchel morphing into a leading man, and getting a Hard 10 girl to boot -- Ms. Alice Eve!

I attended a press junket in New York City for "She's Out of My League," and I was so thankful! It's a fun movie, and the entire cast was sweet! So shameless plugging, don't forget to watch "She's Out of My League" this Friday, March 12.

Here are my fun interviews. First stop, Jay Baruchel

*** We talked about his involvement with the film, how it's nice to see the skinny kid from "Knocked Up" star in a leading man role.
*** Baruchel said that his role is very similar to Lloyd Dobler from "Say Anything," to which I retorted, he's missing his boombox, BUT, he did have a hungry dog :happy
*** What's a moodle?
*** The film's "Beauty and the Beast" angle
*** Working in Philadelphia
*** Baruchel is having a magical year!



Then, we have the girls, Alice Eve and Krysten Ritter, we talked about:

*** Their roles, Alice as Molly and Krysten as Patty
*** Eve called the romantic comedy genre the chocolate of the film world!
*** Ritter's character -- the last time I spoke with her was for "Confessions of a Shopaholic"
*** "She's Out of My League" is a Hard 10 of a movie, at least, Eve said so :happy



Then we have the super-funny troika of Mike Vogel, Lindsay Sloane, and Nate Torrence

*** This became a fun, free-for-all interview -- all three of them gave great, positive vibes that day!
*** We managed to talk about their characters, Mike as Jack, the yoda-like sex guru of the group, Lindsay as Marnie, the ex-girlfriend of Baruchel's character, and Nate is Devon, the childlike member of the group
*** Vogel confirmed his "Captain America" audition! He's got the good, old American boy looks, and I could see him as Steve Rogers aka Captain America!

HAVE FUN! :happy

Watch the Super Top Secret "Tron Legacy" Trailer! 
Before "Alice in Wonderland" opened, there were only few fans invited to watch the new trailer for "Tron Legacy." Now, the trailer can be seen prior to watching the Tim Burton movie.

But if you're not going to watch "Alice in Wonderland," don't worry, you can catch the trailer right here folks! It's intriguing, moody, and atmospheric, using a father-son theme. The music is by Daft Punk, and according to THR, they wrote a score just for this trailer!

Take a look, and marvel at the sight of the recently-crowned Best Actor Oscar, Jeff Bridges, reprising his role from the original film as Flynn, the computer programming genius.

Kathryn Bigelow Makes Oscar History, "The Hurt Locker" Tops 2010 Oscars! 


It was Kathryn Bigelow's night at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. Her film, "The Hurt Locker" took home six trophies including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing. (photo courtesy of ABC.com)

James Cameron's "Avatar," nominated for 9 nods along with "The Hurt Locker" took home three trophies for Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography, and Best Art Direction.

Bigelow made history by being the first woman to win the Best Director trophy. She called her winning the "moment of a lifetime," and it is indeed!

All in all, it was a fun night, for me at least (check out my minute-by-minute Oscar blogfest right here).

Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for "The Blind Side," Jeff Bridges took home the Best Actor award for "Crazy Heart," Mo'Nique received her first Oscar, winning the Best Supporting Actress trophy for "Precious," and Christoph Waltz went home with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Inglourious Basterds."

I think the biggest upset was the Best Foreign Language category. It was being predicted between France's "Un Prophete" and Germany's "The White Ribbon." But in the end, Argentina's "El Secreto de Sus Ojos" took home the award! I was also surprised that "Precious" beat "Up in the Air" in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner won the Writers Guild of America award, which signaled their lock in winning the Oscars, but, Geoffrey Fletcher took home the award for "Precious." (check out my complete 2010 Oscar predictions along with the full nominees right here, see where I failed!)

Congratulations to all the winners!
