It’s been a gloomy Saturday, so I think we all need a little cheering up. Please to enjoy “Pet Photobombs”:
Yep, this video just about sums up Breaking Dawn perfectly.
Rooney Mara has been chosen to play Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. She will be joining Daniel Craig and Robin Wright Penn, who were cast earlier. I am cautiously optimistic that this will be good in light of the actors chosen to play the key roles. Not that they needed to remake an already amazing film, but the original has subtitles, and you know how it makes our little heads hurt to try to read subtitles and follow a movie at the same time.
Read more about Rooney over at Jezebel.
Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, oh say, 1986’s Pretty in Pink, and you start calculating how old the film is, how old that makes Molly Ringwald, how old that makes Duckie and how Andie’s dad was that creepy old polygamist leader on Big Love. Then you start remembering back when you thought 9th grade seemed so far away…how high school graduation would never happen…that turning 21 was so far off in the distance…and you now realize that you are older than the “adult” in Pretty Pink(played by Annie Potts)?!?
Just me then?
Well, last night’s True Blood was something wasn’t it? I wonder how many gallons of fake blood Alan Ball goes thru in an episode? I bet he ups the order with each new show.
So, we bid goodbye to a few characters and learned something new about Miss Stackhouse. There was also an odd Massengill-esque sequence somewhere in the middle of the show that you really have to watch for yourself. I won’t say anymore, since some of you may still have it sitting on your TIVOs, but you can read the entire recap over at Salon here.
Maybe I will say one more thing, Pam is my new favorite vampire. Watch the end of TB and tell me I’m wrong.
Daniel Craig has been cast as Mikael Blomkvist in the upcoming adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’ve just started reading it, but I can see him playing this role. Please, dear lord, let this be a sign that Kristen Stewart won’t be cast as Lisbeth.
Ron Livingston was in one of the funniest movies ever, married the lovely and wonderful actress Rosemarie Dewitt, and now this…
He really is the perfect man.
You know what my big plans are for the weekend? Cranking up the a/c, grabbing a nice cool drink and watching the entire 3rd season of Mad Men. Oh yeah, I know how to party. NY Magazine on the other hand, is celebrating the return of Mad Men with a film montage of Betty Draper’s fine parenting skills. Watch it here.
Buzzfeed has the 25 Best Pictures of Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks. You’re welcome.
I have never watched Jersey Shore but it’s hard to not know who The Situation is. Jezebel presents, “The Situation’s Family Portrait: Still Life With Turtlenecks”
