2012 MTV Movie Awards

MTV movie awards are one of the most ridiculous of the many award shows out there, but they are always good for a few laughs. This year was hosted by Russell Brand again because no one else will dothis show.

This pre-show is a hot mess. Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) is a hot mess. Seriously Bonnie? What is with this terrible weave and your outfit is not any better. Ugh.  Love the shoes though. Here is a transcription of her interview with Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. Kat to Emma Stone – “I am here with the lovely Emma Stone and I think there is somebody hiding behind you.” Andrew – “I’m not hiding.” Kat – “You’re not hiding.” Andrew – “No.” Kat – “Oh, he’s just being Spidermanny and stuff.” Awkward laughter from everyone. WTH??

Yes FUN. I love their single “We Are Young.” Such a good song. It makes me think of some Queen songs. YESSSSSSSS they brought Janelle Monae out to do her part of the song. Continue reading 2012 MTV Movie Awards

21 Jump Street

Don’t be fooled by the trailer guys. If I hadn’t seen this movie at a screening this week, I don’t think I would have gone to the theater to see this. The trailer looked like one of those movies where they put all the funny stuff in it and the rest of the movie sucks. This was not the case with 21 Jump Street. We were literally laughing the entire time.

The movie stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube in this remake of the 90s television show that starred Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson Peete. The movie has the same premise as the show; young rookie cops go undercover in a high school as students and try to find the source of a new designer drug that kids are overdosing on.

I really liked that they knew they are a remake and that some of their jokes aren’t original and they were able to make fun of themselves. It was great. I feel like this movie is going to be a case of the audience liking this movie and critics panning it. But don’t listen to them. This movie was great and you should go see it. You’ll definitely have a good time. Also it has some pretty good eye candy 😉

21 Jump Street Trailer Gets Released

21 Jump Street, the show that ran from 1987 – 1991 and launched the careers of Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson Peete has gotten a face lift and is moving to the big screen.  The trailer was released last week and stars Channing Tatum (Step Up, She’s The Man, GI Joe), Jonah Hill (Super Bad, MoneyBall), Ice Cube (Friday), and Brie Larson (U.S of Tara). I wasn’t in the country during the show’s run (I was also 2 years old when it started) but I caught it in syndication during the mid 90’s and loved it. The premise of the show was cops went undercover in highschool. Yes this sounds ridiculous and so unbelievable because all the actors were way above high school age and would never pass as one, but it was a fun show. This was my first experience with Johnny Depp. He was great not the actor he is today but you can see his potential in the show. Depp has said himself that he didn’t enjoy his time on the show but it’s clear that he knows this was his big break and that’s why he’s makes a cameo in the new movie. Holly Robinson Peete also makes a cameo in the new movie. I don’t know how they came up with this new cast though because the only person that could pass for a high schooler is Brie Larson. The trailer looks like your standard action movie and it should be entertaining and a good time just like the tv series was. Plus there will be lots of man candy with Tatum there.

21 Jump Street in theaters March 16, 2012.

Fall Movies I Can’t Wait For

Fall is here!!! Leaves are falling, the weather is cooler, the boots and jackets have started to come out.Ok it’s been here for a while now but I’ve been so obsessed with tv lately that I forgot all about the movies that are coming this fall that I want to see.

Martha Marcy May Marlene 

Elizabeth Olsen stars as Martha, a young lady that escapes from an abusive cult led by a charismatic leader Patrick (John Hawkes;Winter’s Bone, Contagion). After being missing for sometime, she returns home and tries to assimilate back into her family. She begins to have a difficult time when she becomes haunted by the memories of her time with the cult and becomes increasingly paranoid with the belief that the cult is watching her every move. This movie looks so good. From the trailer alone it looks like the cast is great, the story is intriguing and its going to definitely be an Oscar contender.


Opens in limited release October 21
