OK, so I’m not going to lie: I watched at least half of this trailer trying to decide whether or not I this movie was complete and utter bullshit, or if this movie actually had some hidden genius somewhere. Want to know how it all ends? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the first thing. The “complete and utter bullshit” option, and while it’s chock-full of big name celebrities like Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, James Franco, and Seth Rogen, among others, it’s *also* an self-indulgent piece of dreck that isn’t worth the three minutes and eleven seconds of its red band trailer. Also in the film is Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna.
Hey, also, is Jay Baruchel the worst actor that ever lived or what? For real—I’m pretty sure his best work happened in ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’.
Thoughts on ‘This is the End’? Am I being too hard on this wee wittow movie?
On another note, something that’s not at all dumb—well, OK, sort of dumb, but not dumb in the way that ‘This is the End’ is dumb—’Warm Bodies’. Hear of it? Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the first four minutes if you’re still interested:
God, Emma Watson is so pretty. It’s odd because Hermione Granger was supposed to be a sort of plain girl with bushy hair and messed up teeth, so I get really confused when I see her, because she’s so pretty. And this new Lancome ad is, as they say, off the hook.
The ad is for their new collection for spring called In Love, and it’s pretty wonderful. I believe this is the first makeup ad I’ve ever seen that made me actually want to buy makeup too, so well done, guys. I especially love the lipstick. Am I right in coveting it, or does it just look so good because Emma’s wearing it? Can I take this ad to Ulta and say “give me all of these things”? Makeup is hard.
Blah blah blah let’s all fawn over Emma Watson because this is what we do and really, there’s not a bad thing that anyone could say about this sweet darling of a lady. From IO Donna, Emma on the difference between her Harry Potter character, Hermione, and Charlie in Perks of Being a Wallflower:
“I grew up working on the set of Harry Potter, a world quite isolated and so it wasn’t hard for me to understand the character of Charlie. Like him, I felt a constant desire to be accepted, to feel normal.”
On what it’s like to film a movie based on high school, when in reality, Emma never attended high school herself:
“I did a crash course in high school! In seven weeks I focused everything I had ever done: dancing, games, fraternities. A perfect voyeuristic experience.”
Emma on growing and changing and learning to accept herself—which is awesome at the young age of
twenty-two years old:
“I only recently learned to feel good in my skin. The sad thing is that no one can teach you anything, only you can learn from your experiences.”
Finally, Emma on how cutting her hair was actually an intention to rid herself of the Hermione notoriety:
“I’m glad that I can see in a new incarnation, so I can change, to grow. I was, to say the truth, a little shaken by such a fuss [of those talking about my short hair on the Internet], but it’s always flattering to be on the minds of my fans. I needed, however, to get rid of Hermione.”
