UK Glamour’s Men Hot List

I know this came out last year, but I still wanted to write about it. I have to disagree with a few of the choices. My biggest disagreement would have to be Robert Pattinson. I’m sorry to all of the Robert Pattinson fans, but I do not think he is deserving of the number one spot. To me, he isn’t very good looking. I’m not saying he’s butt ugly, but like I said, he doesn’t deserve the number one spot. My next biggest disagreement would be Xavier Samuel. I think that he should have been spot number five. My next biggest disagreement would have to Justin Bieber. My issue with him is his age. I mean, is he even legal? If he isn’t legal, then how the hell did he get on the list? Anyway, my last disagreement would have to be Gerard Butler and Channing Tatum. I’m sorry, but I don’t think that they deserve to be on the hot list. Personally, I think that there are better looking guys out there than the guys that I mentioned.

Rolling Stone’s Best and Worst Film and TV Vampires

I know this came out a while ago but I wanted to write about it. Umm…I can’t really say much about the best vampires because I haven’t seen most of the movies or tv shows that were mentioned. However, I would have to agree that Bela Lugosi as the Universal Studios Dracula is the best movie vampire of all time. I mean, no one can beat his Dracula. The only that I would change is to add Max Schreck as Count Orlok in the 1922 Nosferatu. Now, as far as the worst movie/tv vampires…I would have to disagree with Tom Cruise being on the list for his performance as Lestat in Interview with the Vampire. While it’s true that Anne Rice, the author of the novel on which the movie was based, initially protested to Tom Cruise being cast, she eventually praised his performance. I mean, he really did capture Lestat’s spirit as he was in Interview with the Vampire. As for Peter Facinelli as Carlisle Cullen, I’m not sure why he was put as on the list. The only thing I can think of would be his character actually has compassion. I don’t think that’s such a bad thing. Anyway, I found it funny that he was compared to Project Runway contestant Austin Scarlett.

Musicals

I was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the other day and that made me think. I noticed that quite a bit of the movie musicals from nowadays are usually seen in the past. Take Sweeney Todd for example. It was set during the 1800s. Hairspray is the same way. It was set during the early 1960s. There’s also Chicago, Moulin Rouge!, The Phantom of the Opera, etc. I think that’s part of the reason as to why they’re appealing. I don’t know why, but that’s just what I think.

Arm Candelabras

I was just thinking about the movie that I had to watch for my Freaks and Monsters class.  The movie that I had to watch was the 1946 Jean Cocteau La Belle et La Bête.  Anyway, my teacher was saying that some elements never change in terms of stories, movies, etc.  So after she had us watch the movie, she brought the arms that hold up the candelabras.  That made me immediately think of the 2004 movie version of Phantom of the Opera because of the arm candelabras that were during the song The Phantom of the Opera. Anyway, I just found that to be interesting because the whole some elements never change things applies.  The connection is that both movies have the arm candelabras.
