I can’t wait to hear people’s reactions to this movie. Director Walter Salles was faced with a daunting task, one that many might argue was virtually impossible to successfully accomplish: turn Jack Kerouac’s barely fictionalized autobiography, On The Road, often referred to as one of the most important novels of the century, into a film that wouldn’t crumble under the weight of such tremendously high expectations. Full Story

Very well done. Even if the hits are coming, you take them anyway. It’s a character building approach. And it’s a much stronger strategic move than that apology. A friend and I were discussing this last night. He compared the apology, the delivery of it, the desperateness of it, the theatricality of it, to 10 Things I Hate About You, or any dramatic declaration in a high school movie in which one of the leads expresses to the other lead, in the most public way possible, like in the cafeteria, that I Love You or I Miss You. Full Story

Did I miss the part where they actually introduced these girls?   I mean, I know the Olympics wasn’t long ago, but we’re used to seeing them all in skintight leotards and the same skinned-back hairstyle.  It’s not like we’re at the point where there’s full facial recognition when they’re dressed like people, especially on a really, really wide shot. Full Story

I’m into whatever Miley Cyrus is selling these days.  Engaged? Sure.  Sassy new haircut that somehow reverberated around the world?  All over it.  I had to look up what she’s actually working on right now – but that in itself isn’t a bad thing. I don’t understand why she had to stifle The Haircut though – like, isn’t one of the points of a short haircut that you can kind of dress it up or down?  I was sort of looking forward to seeing those sassy pieces flopping all over the place – kind of a Chelsea cut that didn’t take itself too seriously. Full Story

Taylor Swift at the VMAs: boring but good shoes

To rail at someone for one thing – being too much of a childish cutesy-poo when at awards shows, just for example – and then, when they change that, sniff that it still isn’t good enough, is kind of the height of bitchiness.  But that’s how I felt about Taylor Swift anyway. Full Story

Things about the Twilight contingent’s presentation that were gross, in no particular order: -Peter Facinelli’s dead-eyes as he calculated how much of his salary is worth him doing endless teen press. -Taylor Lautner’s tan and sad uncomprehending smile. Does he know what’s actually going on, often?  Sometimes I’m not sure. Full Story

I wonder if the producers knew that this was not going to be the awards show that anyone remembers past today.  I don’t know.  Do they think “oh man, we have a sick lineup, this is going to be amazing”?  Because while it was fine production-wise and musically, the show just didn’t surprise. Full Story
