Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page & Kristin Wiig in 'Whip It'

Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page & Kristin Wiig in 'Whip It'

Drew Barrymore makes her debut behind the camera with a fun and modern tale about a young misfit (Ellen Page) who finds solace from her uptight parents and deplorable schoolmates with an Austin roller derby team … also run by Barrymore. I am ecstatic to see Barrymore taking more control in her career … considering she’s been acting for most of her life, I’d say it’s about time she took the wheel and this is definitely a terrific start for a first-time director … Read the rest of this entry »

This week showcased a very lackluster episode of performances from the Top 8 … which is lame and annoying for a fan like myself. Obviously, as the competition dwindles, I expect the best routines out of the best dancers … and I really haven’t gotten a whole lot of good from the show this week. It’s sad … cause I expected a lot more from the Top 8 this season.

I do feel, however, that each couple produced at least one great performance this episode … Let’s get into it! Read the rest of this entry »

Meryl Streep in 'Julie & Julia'

Meryl Streep in 'Julie & Julia'

Stepping into the theatre I knew I would enjoy Julie & Julia … simply for the fact that the spectacular Meryl Streep is the star and can do no wrong when it comes to cinema. Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised by the supporting cast and the fantastic Amy Adams (star of Enchanted and Junebug) in making this romantic-comedy a stand out. Read the rest of this entry »

WTF?!? The Top 10 are only performing one routine this episode … Being the first week the dancers are paired into new couples, wouldn’t the producers want us (the viewers) to have more to judge the new pairings on? Last season, the couples performed two routines every week after the Top 14 … That is lame SYTYCD!

If they were only going to showcase five routines (plus two group routines) … they all should have been spectacular to watch. Nevertheless, this week probably had one of the best routines out of the season … Read the rest of this entry »

Susan Sarandon in 'The Lovely Bones'

Saoirse Ronan & Susan Sarandon in 'The Lovely Bones'

I just saw the trailer for Peter Jackson’s new film The Lovely Bones … sticking to his niche of adapting books into films, i.e. Lord of the Rings, this movie takes a drastic turn from science fiction, hobbits and elves. Written by Alice Sebold in 2002, the story follows Susie Salmon in the 1970s … after she is murdered she goes to her personal-heaven where she watches over her family as they deal with the aftermath of her death.

This was the first week the couples performed two routines and I was shocked at how well all the couples did with each style thrown at them. Since this is going to be the last week these couples perform together, I’m sure they all worked their asses off to make the Top 10. Read the rest of this entry »
