My faves of Hollywooooood.

Oh it's Tuesday and man do I have some Hollywood news today. And go!
  • So I was all psyched and ready to share my quasi review of the Dark Knight until I went onto People.com this morning and saw that my beloved Christian Bale was freaking arrested!?!?! Noooooooooo. Apparently he reportedly verbally assaulted his mother and sister (WTF?!?!?!?!) but no formal charges have been made. Hmmmm. That is weird and not cool and ah, sad.

    But that doesn't mean I didn't love the movie. After a full freaking year of anticipation, the movie I was beyond excited for finally came out. And the final result: AMAZING. Not even kidding, the movie lived up to every expectation I had and didn't have and I was in no way disappointed. Hell it even kept me on the edge of my seat, literally. You can ask Matt, I was jumping and gripping on to him more times than I could count, I was that freaked out. Yeah if anything this movie was way more creepy and dark than I would have envisioned but man was it good. And Heath!?! Oh wow. He played one scary ass psychopath (shudders). I was seriously freaked out, even after the movie was done. And obviously I'm not the only person who thought this movie was so good since it broke seven different movie records. Woot.

    Anyhoo I know this isn't much of a review, but I don't want to give anything away. Just know that I give it two really big thumbs up and highly recommend you get your butt out there and watch it! Stat!

  • In other movie related news, looks like I could get a new job. Looks like both Epert and Roeper are leaving "At the Movies with Epert and Roeper." Um. How does that work? Haha. But hey guys, if you need someone to see sneak peeks of movies and try and review them, give me a call okay? :)

  • The Hills. Oh they are back. I was flipping through channels last night and just happened to catch the preview for season 4 of the Hills and all I have are two words: Oh Man. I hate this show, but I love it and then I'll probably scream at my TV. August 18th the drama returns and you can bet my DVR will be set, oy.

    In other Hills news, apparently Heidi and Spencer are trying to pull some strings with the McCains and get on over to Iraq to perform for the troops. Um. Um. Now I don't want to be mean...oh wait yes I do. Are you freaking serious?!?! I like Michael K's idea better, send them to Guantanamo bay and lose the key. Gah.

  • In other sad news, Estelle Getty from the Golden Girls passed away early this morning. So very sad, she was awesome and will be missed.

  • So the rumors have been swirling lately that my fave Hollywood family is about to expand and although there have been no official statements Jen has been wearing a lot of baggy clothes and strategically placing Violet over her stomach. Annnnd Victor Garber did say she's about 5 months pregnant, and he is a close family friend and was the officiator in her wedding, so why would he make it up, hmmmm? A new sibling for Violet? I do not object :)

  • Remix! Perez just posted a remix to Maroon 5 and Rihanna's fantabulous song "If I Never See Your Face Again" and I can't decide if I like it or not? It's pretty clubby and peppy. And it's sort of hard to top the original, but you decide. Like it or pass?

  • So I finished the Nanny Diaries this weekend when I was stuck in the San Fransisco airport and I give it two thumbs up. Definitely better than movie except for the ending. I think I liked the ending of the movie a little better. However I did want to smack Nan more than once in the book, yeah I get way into stories. And last night I started reading the Devil Wears Prada, another book version of a movie I've already seen. So far it's pretty funny and I have a feeling I'll love it, so I'll make sure to let you know.

and that's about all I got today, just craziness! Anything I missed? Feel free to add it to the comments. Woot.

happy tuesday!

Ohh man.. I couldn't BELIEVE about Christian Bale. He just seemed so down to earth.
& i'm with you on The Hills- I know I'll watch it, but I know I'll probably regret it after!

Sarah Marie said...

Yeah, Dark Knight totally did not disappoint - I kinda want to see it again! And now I'm going to have to watch that preview for the Hills - yeah, def a love/hate relationship with that show but you can't miss it! Oh man, Speidi is rediculous!

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking Mom and Sister Bale want a little money action and that this is all completely false!

Anonymous said...

I seriously wouldn't know what was going on in Hollywood if it weren't for you. Dead serious here.

Dark Knight didn't disappoint AT ALL. Loved it, love love love. I'm with lspoon on this one....refuse to believe bad things about my christian bale! Yet, anyway.

Deutlich said...

Spencer looks like a COMPLETE TOOL the way he's holding that gun.

Amanda said...

I am still laughing slash crying about this Heidi and Spencer situation. I feel like half the troops wouldn't even know who they are!

Oh, and I feel the need to midly brag: while working in LA, I had to drop something off at Ben Affleck's house and caught a glimpse of some Violet Affleck artwork on their front porch. My friends told me I should have taken it and sold it on ebay. It was pretty adorable.

Sara Jane said...

1. I have loved Christian Bale since Newsies. Everyone makes mistakes.

2. I can't wait to see Dark Knight.

3. Loving your blog.

4. I hope Violet gets a new sibling. I love Ben and Jen.

5. She was my fav Golden Girl

6. You will LOVE LOVE LOVE The Devile Wears Prada.

Bayjb said...

Hey there, it was SO good to meet you this weekend. Sadly I won't be "running into you" around Chicago, but we'll meet up again soon! I loved the Dark Knight, we'll have to discuss.

glamour girly said...

Christian Bale disappoints me, too.

I hope that Violet will have a little brother or sister!

I will so miss Estelle Getty.

Tipp said...

Christian is innocent. I think his family knows he is in the money. Boo.

I will miss Estelle. I didn't know she had a form of Alzhemiers. I thought I just saw her in an interview, but it must have been from a while back.

Amanda. said...

Ughh to the Christian news.
E! has been keeping me
posted on the whole situation.
Psh. I don't like it when
actors I like do bad things.

I'm still in dire need
to see The Dark Knight.
DEF this week at some point.

Poor golden girl! She was

So very excited about
the Jen and Ben news.
Eeep...I so hope she's
really going to pop
out another little flower!

And I like the Devil Wears
Prada movie better...but
the book is still a pager

B2G said...

I LOVE the Golden Girls, seriously. I still watch the reruns every time I catch them.

Also, you know how much I want another baby Garner-Affleck. SERIOUSLY.

Laurie said...

I'm sad about Estelle. She was so funny and the best part about the show.

Jenn said...

Is it weird that when I read about Christian Bale this morning that I thought of you? Haha! I was like oh man, she might die a little inside!

Dana said...

OMG i cannot believe Christian Bale got arrested.. I hear this morning on Howard Stern!! CRAZY...

And i too LOVE THE HILLS... I actually had it planned to post the trailer on friday.. Oh Well... Still awesome...


Ohhhhh Spiedi, they are at it again. ag.


Auburn Kat said...

I loved, loved, loved the Golden Girls!!!! She was an amazing actress on that show and had me constantly laughing!

So@24 said...

Funny thing about Christian Bale when they brought him in...

All he had on him were knives and lint.

Alexa said...

i think christian's estranged mother and sister are to blame. not MY baby!

and sophia!!!! i shed a little tear at work today when i read that she passed and tonight i will eat cheesecake in her memory!

Angela said...

Aww, Estelle died? That's so sad, she was such a classic. At least she lived a long life.

And I didn't know The Hills was going to be back, but I'll probably be watching it, too!

Fifi Flowers said...

Fab to come on your site... I don't have to watch Entertainment Tonight or The Insider... thanks! I'll be back for my gossip fix!

Playful Professional said...

All I can say is that Heath was amazing. The only problem I had with the movie was the fact that Katie HOlmes was not in this one. It just wasn't the same girl to me so I kind of just ignored the whole Rachel story. Other than that, loved it!!

Kim Thomas said...

I didnt read this one because I havent seen the movie yet. It is on the agenda for the weekend and afterwards I will come back and deliver my thoughts. Heard it was wonderful!!!!!

Anonymous said...

heath was pee in your pants good! omg. so creepy and awesome.

RIP estelle! my favorite golden girl!

Julie said...

What exactly are Heidi and Spencer going to perform as in Iraq???
And who the hell wants to see them??

Seriously though, I want to know what they are going to do there.

kay* said...

garner is totally preggo, agree with your review on batman - it's awesome and ledger is amazing in it...very tragic though - i found his scenes incredibly difficult to watch, and if you enjoyed the nanny diaries you will love the devil wears prada too! it's great fun :o)

Julie Q said...

lol i must admit, you were the first person i thought of when i saw those pics of J-Garners belly bump! I was like.. Katelin must be so excited! (and then i thought.. jen and ben must be psyched too) hahaha
