Car Crash Review: Eclipse

The Twilight franchise is like junk food for my head.  It’s like looking at a big, sugary donut and you crave it, so you eat it, but afterwards you feel a bit guilty and sick and think you really shouldn’t eat one again any time soon.  But then of course you do.

The films in particular are a total sugar-crash for my mind.  They seem like a really good idea at first, but by the time I’m halfway through I’m sort of waiting for it to end  and feeling sort of silly for getting so excited over scenes of saccharine teenage love in the first place.

But I went to see Eclipse last night with about 500 other loons who thought it was worth going to see in the middle of the night and actually really enjoyed it and think I probably could watch it again without asking myself “why!?” afterwards.

The Oscars happened and some people wore some clothes

Dear reader, give your eyes a long, cool, delicious sip of this:

Oh Cameron.  Oh Cammy, Cammy, Cammy.  Wow.

I actually gasped when I first saw this picture and then looked around the room to see if anyone else was looking over my shoulder, also basking in the feminine sparkliness.  As it happened, no one was, they were all working like I should have been, but still, I basked alone and oohed and ahhed to myself over how gorgeous she looks.

This is, by far my favourite look of the night.

Twilight did well at the MTV awards

Ok, am I the only one stupidly excited about the New Moon trailer?  I mean, the film will be awful, just like Twilight was, but as I’m a bona fide loony fan of the books, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I still can’t wait to see it.

First of all, let me point out once again why I love Kristen.

Awkward but totally gorgeous and not afraid to opt for comfort on the red carpet.  I like that she does her own thing.

The film managed to scoop loads of awards, with both Kristen and Rob getting best male and female actor and they also got one for best screen kiss which they pretended to reenact:

Sigh.  Lucky, lucky girl.

EMMA WATSON!!!

I’m sorry.  I’ve been a bad, bad blogger.  Blame it on work, SAD syndrome and beer.  But, I have to say, there are a lot of you guys out there who are seriously obsessed with Emma Watson!  I’ve been keeping an eye on my stats even though I haven’t been writing and thousands have been coming on here just to look at pictures of her smug little face. 

Actually, as much as I slate Hermione, I admit, she really is blossoming onto quite the classy young lady.  No wonder her fan base is big.  They’re obviously all young fashionistas looking for inspiration.  Not pedos looking for the youngest legal bait to perv over.  No, not at all.

Ok Emma, because you look so fab (although not sure about that outfit there) and you’ve stopped doing the annoying facial expressions as much (and because you’re keeping my blog stats high) let’s call a truce.  I’ll stop calling you annoying, for now.

No Keira Knightley, the same does NOT apply to you.  That Chanel advert that keeps playing in the ad breaks of ANTM has ensured you a place on my shit-list forever.

Miaow!


Jennifer Aniston must have walked past or something…

So there’s talk of Angelina Jolie, aka Queen of the Universe, being cast as the next cat woman.

Well duh!  Just look at her.  She has what must be the most gorgeously feline face in the world.  Sigh… sorry where was I?  My eyes keep wondering back to the picture.

Seriously, I think the role would suit her perfectly.  Not just because of her looks but because she’s really quite good at smouldering and kicking arse while not saying a great deal.  

Take Wanted as an example.  She’s always pouting, and looking great, all while shooting someone in the head or breaking their back, but she only ever utters a line every half hour. 

Not that she can’t deliver lines, as her performance in Girl, Interrupted proves.  Therefore if she’s going to be type-cast as the hot-but-mysteriously-tormented-action-goddess, so be it!

Either way the woman is going to win with this.  After all, the Razzie-winning version that starred Halle Berry is not going to be hard to beat is it?
