Shameless Acts of Self Promotion And Other Things

This is pretty random even for me, but if you like Brad Pitt all’s good. It gets funnier towards the middle of the video.

That’s for Nana and Anita and because Brad Pitt is totally cute.

And just for kicks….

The Cake Man

Chris Pine is so adorable.

Movie Moment : Holiday Inn

Saw this today while we were waiting for our food to get cooked….I’m sorry dad, smoked. I REALLY love this sorta old black and white movies. They are such fun and the humor is just…..funny. What  more can you say. And the people are actually talented. They can sing and they can dance. AND everything works out great in the end. Everything is so simple, just how I like it. If you enjoy dancing, this movie is a must see. The dancing is great, Fred Astaire is a GENIUS and the singing is so beautiful. (Hello Bing Crosby.) Enjoy the movie gallery below.

Don’t let this poster fool you. The movie ain’t in color. Well……it might be. Someone may have taken the time to color it in and release an updated version. You never know. That’s what happened to Robin Hood.

I always thought that old Hollywood was so glamorous and classy. I mean, look at these guys.

This picture comes from this REALLY awesome dance that Frank Astaire did which involves him tap dancing AND throwing mini firecrackers on the ground. So awesome. This guy is seriously the best dancer I have ever seen. The funny thing is, if I was any younger, I’d call this style boring, but now that I’m older I have an appreciation for the beautiful art that is tap dancing. God, I sound so deep.

Hangover.

This is the iconic scene where Bing Crosby and Marjorie Reynolds sing “White Christmas” for the first time in history. Man, if only they knew where that song would go.

And finally, my favorite dance from the movie. Wellllll………..I liked this one a whole lot. There WERE a few other ones that I liked too, but I couldn’t find them on Youtube. So I’ll post this one for now (Because it IS very beautiful) and I’ll post the other ones when I find them IF I find them. Enjoy.

Im A Little Bit Obsessed

With Chris Pine.

Well, I dont know if thats what you would call frantically googling (SOMEONE GOOGLE GAGA! Sorry, you won’t get that unless you’re name is Anita.) every movie he’s ever been in and pleading with dad to rent them for us. Anyways, the first one we saw was one you probably all know and have seen secretly like half a dozen times. Star Trek. The new one. Unless Chris Pine made a cameo in one of the older ones as a baby. In that case….

Then we saw “Just My Luck”. Its actually with Lindsay Lohan too. About this girl whos “lucky” and a guy whos “unlucky” and how they’re luck gets switched. Really funny, really cute.

And finally (So far) “Blind Dating”. This is a really, really good movie. About this blind kid whos going in for an operation that might restore his sight WHILE he tries to figure out…..girls. Its really funny too.

Another Movie Moment – Dear John

Based on the book by Nicholas Sparks, who ALSO wrote “A Walk to Remember”. This looks so sweet, but a little sad at the same time. Bittersweet. Those are the movies that really get to me. The ones that make me laugh and cry and feel like you want to help the characters and feel helpless because you know you cant. I think I’ll cry when I watch this movie. Which I definitely will. Watch the movie I mean. Not cry. Though I’ll do that too.

“A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he’s home on leave. John (the soldier) must go back to the army and he and Savannah (the student) communicate through letters, until fate takes a turn.” – Via Wikipedia

Stars Channing Tatum (Step Up, GI-Joe, She’s the Man) and Amanda Seyfried. (Mamma Mia) This looks like such an adorable movie.

Movie Moment – The Spy Next Door

Former CIA spy Bob Ho takes on his toughest assignment to date: looking after his girlfriend’s three kids, who haven’t exactly warmed to their mom’s beau. And when one of the youngsters accidentally downloads a top-secret formula, Bob’s longtime nemesis, a Russian terrorist, pays a visit to the family. (Via IMDB)

This looks kinda cool. Not EPIC (Like Rush Hour 1,2 and 3…..Now those cannot be beat. Good laughs man.) but decent if you know what I mean. Not like, “OMG I HAVE TO SEE THIS IN THE THEATER OR I AM GOING TO DIE”, but more like, “I should definitely rent this when it comes out on DVD.” Of course, if you were like, rich or something, you should for sure without a hint of hesitation go see it in the theater. But then, if you were rich I suppose you could probably go see every movie that comes out in the theater, even the really shitty ones. But on the other hand, you would probably be busy doing whatever it is that got you rich in the first place (Think pitching hay, being chased by monsters  and having a loud and obnoxious mouth.) so in the end, we are all equal. We are one…..(Lion King?) Scratch that. No we’re not. You famous people are followed everywhere by adoring fans and paparazzi people who want to take your picture . The only person apt to follow me is my annoying sister who is continuously trying to convince me that deep down I want to give her my 5000 yen allowance because of something called karma(?). You famous people will end up on the cover of every high fashion magazine there is out there. The only magazine I will ever end up on is one of the many they have at MagMyPic. Brilliant site it is actually. You can put a pic of yourself on Vogue or Teen Mag or whatever and feel like a star until someone comes and looks over your shoulder and you are suddenly seized with an extreme case of the sniffles which sadly causes you to excrete snot all over you computer monitor. Heres the link, because I know you want to. http://www.magmypic.com/

If you remember that we were talking about a movie called The Spy Next Door, heres the trailer. Stars Jackie Chan. (Thats why I mentioned Rush Hour. Thats wasnt TOTALLY random.)

Movie Moment – Mr. Bean The Ultimate Disaster Movie

Be afraid.

Mr.Bean has a passport.

The genius that is Rowan Atkinson

Jackie Chan

What can I say….just watch.

Funny Things

As the title says.

Just Because We Have Been Watching James Bond Recently

So since we have been going through the James Bond movies recently (We stopped after watching Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Come to think of it, Daniel Craig just happens to be in both of those.) I was skimming through the soundtracks on Wikipedia, and I happened to find a few famous names. (On the soundtracks, not on Wikipedia in general.)  Namely, Madonna, Alicia Keys and thats about it.  And I actually really like them, so Im just posting them over here.

Madonnas soundtrack for “James Bond – Die Another Day.” The song’s called…..Die Another Day. How original.  Skip along to about the 20 second mark for the start of the song. Because they really wanted to make sure that you’d know it was Madonna singing this song. Because you know, not all that many people know what she looks like.

This one is the soundtrack for “James Bond – Quantum of Solace.” Its with Alicia Keys and Jack White. Alicia Keys’ eyelashes look rather frightening in this one. And I swear, something is wrong with this Jack person.

Both of the songs are actually rather tragic and sad, but I suppose thats how people like them nowadays.

Its actually quite funny. Since we’ve been watching all this James Bond, Ive begun speaking English. Uh, English as in the sort of English people from England speak. Not American English. You know…”Hmm, yes dear, some tea would be quite charming.” and “The names Segawa…Melissa Segawa.”
