Goddess Interrupted

Yet again, I am here to write another book review. The book I’m reviewing this time is Goddess Interrupted by Aimée Carter. You can read a summary of the book here. Anyway, I liked the book. I think it would be a good light summer read.

Starcrossed Review

Wow. I haven’t written anything on here in a long time. Anyway, this post is yet another book review. I just wanted to write a review before I forget the content of the book. Anyway, the book that I read was Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. You can read a summary of the book here. I really liked this book. I think that the author made the whole demi-god idea and how things happen in cycles very interesting. Anyway, I would recommend it for you’re interested in Greek mythology or history.

The Razzies

Well, I know that the announcement for the winners for the Razzies came out already but I still wanted to write about it. Anyway, I can’t really say anything about most of the movies and/or actors who were nominated because I never saw the movies. All I can say is that I’m not surprised that Eclipse had so many nominations. I mean, to me, it was not the best movie from the three that already came out. Personally, I thought that the first one was the best, which is not saying much. There are so many reasons why I’m not surprised why Eclipse got so many Razzie nominations. First, like I said before, the story was a bit disjointed for me. The scenes didn’t flow as well as I would have liked. Plus, that they left out some information out, like how some of the pack members, other than Sam, imprinting. Second was Kristen’s performance. As usual, she was horrible. But then again, it’s not entirely her fault. Bella is an extremely boring character.

The Breaking Dawn Vampires

A while back, the cast for the new Breaking Dawn vampires were announced. I can’t really say if a majority of the actors chosen will do a good job of playing their respective characters. I have already given my opinion on Casey LaBow. As for Judi Skekoni, who I saw on an episode of NCIS, I think she can pull it off. I think that Noel Fisher, who I saw on an episodes of Bones, also can pull off his character. It’s the same with Rami Malek, who I know from the Night at the Museum movies. Anyway, I’ll just have to wait and see how the other actors do when the movie comes out.

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.

Andrea Powell As Sasha

I was on TwilightMoms recently and saw a post about who was cast as Sasha, the mother figure to Tanya, Kate, and Irina. I looked at the picture of the woman who was cast. As I looked at the picture, I thought to myself, she looked familiar. To me, she looked like the mom of the main werewolf character from the tv show The Gates. So I looked up the woman and it turned out that it was the same woman. All I can say is that I think Andrea Powell is one of the few people who has switch sides from werewolf to vampire.

Mackenzie Foy As Renesmee

When I found out that Mackenzie Foy was cast as Renesmee, I thought to myself, how are they going to make her into a baby/toddler? Because Mackenzie is obviously not a little kid, let alone a baby/toddler. I mean, I can understand why the casting director chose an “older” actress to play such a young character because that’s what they did with Claudia aka Kirsten Dunst from the movie version of Interview With The Vampire. What I mean by that in the book and movie, Claudia is basically a fully grown woman who’s trapped in a 6-year-old body. So, when they were casting for Claudia, they wanted to cast a slightly older actress to play her because there was no way that an actual 6-year-old actress who could even remotely act the necessary emotions, intelligence, etc., that is required from the character. So, what I’m basically saying is that an actor/actress who is actually the same age as the character might be able to play the necessary maturity that the character calls for. Anyway, as for whether or not Mackenzie will be good as Renesmee, I don’t know. I haven’t seen her act.
