Nothing good

If this were a sports blog I'd have plenty to talk about. Instead, as I scour the pages of entertainment sites online, I find that there is absolutely NOTHING to talk about. The headlines talk about 300's big debut at the box office. I had the opportunity to go and see that last night...I chose not to in order to see Casino Royale for only 1.50. It was worth it. Daniel Craig was amazing...his body incredible, I was sold. He can be my 007 anyday.

I did want to mention my conundrum. I am stuck at whether or not I will be a fan of the new TMNT movie. Growing up I was a HUGE TMNT fan. I had the Michgelangelo costume (my cousins and I would play dress up with them ALL the time). I went to every movie in theatres, I owned the soundtrack (yes there is a soundtrack, I know the words to "I'm coming out of my shell"), and I totally had the poster in my room. This latest attempt at turtle power scares me though. The other movies were all real-life, this is the first full-length ANIMATED TMNT film hitting theatres. There are some decent celebrity cameos involved....Michigan's favorite Patrick Stewart (that's right, think Ball State), will be lending his vocal chords to the project. Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar will be Ms. April O'Neil. What I worry about is the intended audience for this feature. Is it is going to be a kids movie, or is it going to be aimed at older audiences who grew up watching turtles eat anchovie pizza (like me). I hope, if it is targeted at kids, that it contains enough adult humor to make it likeable for people of all ages.
Cowabunga dude.

I have decided to start a new trend where I end each post with some of the memorable quotes from some classic movies (my definition of classic includes the teen dramas of the late nineties and the box office smashes of our generation). I start with some from my all-time favorite late nineties teen drama "10 Things I Hate About You". If you have a movie or a favorite quote you'd like to share let me know. I'd love to add it on the next blog.

-"I know you can be under whelmed, and you can be overwhelmed, but can you ever just be, like, whelmed?
-I think you can in Europe.

Walter Stratford: Hi... where're we going?
Bianca: Well, if you must know... a small study group with friends.
Walter Stratford: Otherwise known as an orgy?
Chastity: Mr. Stratford, it's just a party.
Walter Stratford: And hell is just a sauna.

Walter Stratford: I delivered a set of twins to a fifteen-year-old girl today, and you know what she said to me?
Bianca: "I'm a crack-whore who should have made my sleazy boyfriend wear a condom"?
Walter Stratford: Close, she said "I should have listened to my father."
Bianca: She did not.
Walter Stratford: Well, that's what should would have said if she wasn't so doped up.

Walter Stratford: Hello, Katarina. Make anybody cry today?
Kat Stratford: Sadly, no. But it's only 4:30.
