Love for "Valentine's Day"

I don't have much to say about this film since it's pretty much about a wide variety of couples on Valentine's Day, but here are the things that I liked.

The cast is amazing. It's really cool to see so many different actors and actress get together and show off their individuality.

What I really found interesting is the idea surrounding Valentine's Day. Love surrounds us all. The film shows us what Valentine's Day is like for children, teens, adults, the elderly, African Americans, Latinos, whites and gays. It does an excellent job making the world feel like one like we do at Christmas or on New Years. Some people think Valentine's Day is a fabricated holiday, but the film shows us that it is more than just flowers, candy and huge bears. We are all connected in this world and it will always be that way no matter which holiday rolls around.

Johnny Depp Reveals Hints About "Pirates 4"

Johnny Depp is ready for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. According to Cinematical:

[Depp] told reporters that he would be among the very few cast
members returning for the next Pirates of the Caribbean films, but insisted that the sequels wouldn't be a one-man show. "There's no Keira or Orlando in there," he explained Saturday at a press conference in Hollywood, Calif. "[But] I don't know. I don't think we'd ever throw too much Jack Sparrow in there. There will be a little bit of everybody."

I hope they have good costars to go along with Captain Jack!

"Twilight" Fan Lashes Out at Universal for Making "The Wolfman" an Imitation of "Twilight"

Kayla Patterson, who is a huge Twilight fan wrote a letter to Universal claiming that The Wolfman is a ripoff of Twilight. It seems that she doesn't know that The Wolfman is a remake from the 1941 original. She also doesn't realize that the legends of werewolves and vampires have been around for centuries! According to her, Stephenie Meyer created werewolves and vampires. Well, I wonder who wrote that little book called Dracula? I also wonder who created the wolf that could speak in Little Red Riding Hood? I hope she will come to terms that every story is created from someone or something. Nothing is never truly original, it just may have a different spin on it.

In her defense though, she is extremely passionate about Twilight and doesn't want anyone or anything to change the message surrounding it. She also believes that Twilight is original probably because she hasn't been exposed to the real world yet. I can understand why she wrote the letter because at one point in time I was a crazy teenage girl. Check out the letter below from Get the Big Picture.

To whom this may concern:

This movie was a complete waste and I feel that it offends ALL Twilight Fans around the world, that including myself. For one, it was a COMPLETE remaking of the Wolf Pack from the Twilight Saga: New Moon. It gives the werewolves a bad name and makes them look like some deformed mutation of a rabid dog. I actually started to like werewolves after seeing Jacob Black and all his awesomeness on the big screen at the movies. That was until I saw your crappy remake of what you call to be a "were wolf". I don't see how you live with yourself for making it the way you did. If I made this movie, I would be ashamed to even admit that I owned it.

How can a werewolf be killed with a silver bullet? Better yet, have you saw the transformation of the man that is "supposed" to be the wolf? He sits in some chair and his entire body turns in to some mutated freak. If you would watch the transformation of Jacob Black, (Taylor Lautner) he doesn't come close to looking as fake, cheap and or mutated as the wolf man.

You tell me, who looks to be the better werewolf. Your stupid Wolf Movie didn't even make the top Movie for the charts; Valentines Day WITH TAYLOR Lautner! Get that this is MY oppinion and I felt I wanted to express it because I saw that your email was on your site. I wanted to let you know this is what i thought of the wolf man that sucks.

Top Five Reasons to See "Dear John"

Okay it wasn't as bad as all the critics made it out to be. I found it to be a sweet and fulfilling love story. Here are my reason to check out the film.

5) If you enjoy Nicholas Sparks' novels then you will enjoy the film.

4) If you like the south, especially Charleston South Carolina, then you will find the scenery quite breathtaking.

3) The topic of autism is discussed in the film as two of the characters are dealing with the disease. I felt like the film presented how serious autism is and helped make the public aware of the growing disease.

2) No one is perfect. Sometimes being too good can be a major flaw.

1) Channing Tatum is absolutely beautiful.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die: "Alien" (1979)

This section is based off of films from the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die by Steven Jay Schneider.

Ridley Scott introduced audiences to a new type of horror film, the science-fiction horror film. I found this film very appealing due to the take from classic slasher films making Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) the final girl. She stands alone in the end with Jones the cat, which breaks the stereotype that women and cats are weak, dumb and helpless beings.

Alien has the same formula as any classic slasher film. For example, the crew of the Nostromo respond to an unknown call on a foreign planet, which is a recipe for disaster. One of the crew members Kane (John Hurt) decides to search the land until he becomes acquainted with a face-hugging alien. The crew ignores Ripley's quarantine rules and brings Kane in for tests. Eventually, the crew gets a surprise at breakfast when the alien rips through Kane's chest and scurries away. One by one the crew gets ripped apart by the alien that apparently grew in five minutes. I found myself shaking my head as each crew member made their way into the dark corners of the ship knowing what was waiting for them.

I was so pleased to finally see an animal in a horror film that actually lived. Normally, animals are the first to go, especially cats. Jones proved that cats can outsmart other species. I liked how Scott showed Jones face instead of showing the audience how one of the crew members died. He left a lot of room for imagination, which we don't see in many horror films today.

It's classic horror at it's best because the alien represents the unknown in this world. We don't know what's out there. The alien stands alone against films most terrifying monsters like Michael Myers, Freddy and Jason because they could exist.

Nothing Funny About "The Lovely Bones"

My title maybe deceiving, but I actually did enjoy The Lovely Bones. My reason for my title is that I sat through the entire film with two teenage girls laughing. This film is not a comedy. There's nothing funny about a fourteen year old girl being lured into the underground with a creepy old man who murders her. Nothing funny at all.

I haven't read the book, but I've been told that it's more graphic than the film. I read in an issue of Entertainment Weekly that Peter Jackson was getting criticized for not putting in the rape scene. Now, who would want to see that? Not me. Personally, I think Peter Jackson did an excellent job allowing the audience to figure out what really happened to Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan). There are plenty of hints and foreshadowing moments throughout the film.

The world that Jackson creates for Susie is visually breathtaking. Her world between heaven and earth, which becomes her own personal heaven yet her hell in one.

George Harvey (Stanley Tucci) is amazing in this role. Yes he's a creeper, but he took on this role and completely transformed himself. He really deserves an award for his performance.

Overall, it's a good film. It really makes you think about the people around you and who you can really trust.

Not Another "Friday the 13th"

I guess the production companies didn't watch the remake of Friday the 13th because it was one big mess. Now it seems they want to make more money and release a sequel on August 13, 2010. Check out Bloody Disgusting for more details.
