I have so much awesome to help you kick off the weekend its ridiculous.
With the Oscars this weekend, I thought we could all get in the spirit with a movie-related post. True, not all of the films I’m about to talk about have been Oscar-nominated (though some have taken home quiet a few Razzies) but they’re still blowin’ up the interwebs this week!
What do you get when you cross a singing, French prostitute and a mutant Hobbit with an affinity for duplicity?
I won’t lie. At first I thought: Heh, this is pretty funny. Then I thought: This is just wrong. If I was conflicted, now you have to be. Sorry, that’s the way this relationship is going to work, peeps.
If that wasn’t odd enough, brace yourselves.
Remember back in 2006 when we heard that a Transformers movie was going to come out that next summer? Remember how happy we were? We reflected back to the days of our youth when we’d watch the antics of the Autobots on Saturday mornings? Then remember in 2007 when we all wanted to pelt Michael Bay with stale popcorn and lament the fact that he ruined such a great series from our childhood? Yeah. I do too. Well get ready. We may have to do it again.
Evidently, he and Megan Fox have made up from their “little disagreement” and he is now considering her to play April O’Neil in his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie! Ugh! *Throws Lego® Rafael across the room and screams like Shredder*
We could all use a heart-warming story right about now. Thankfully, I’ve got one.
While perusing Pinterest (and trying to block my vision of the stack dishes in the sink) I came across this:
I immediately thought: “OMG! This is why JK Rowling is awesome and Harry Potter kicks some serious hippogriff hiney!”
But then I thought: “Wait. This is the internet. Is this true?”
After some research, I found out it IS true!
The actress who plays Luna Lovegood, Evanna Lynch, did an interview with the British mag, The Sun, back in 2010. She credited Rowling with helping her get better and says that Luna was an inspiration to her. Behold, the power of reading.
And finally, Tributes, here’s something else to make you squeal with glee!
Check out the latest promotional poster for Catching Fire! Isn’t it awesome?! I cannot wait for this movie to come out! Granted, I’ll have my own little tribute by that time, but Momma’s still gonna go to the midnight showing. Because, well, let’s face it; I’ll probably be up anyway.
