Casting News

Woah! Got a bit of a shocker news today.

Scream 4 is casting Emma Roberts.

First of, I did not even know about Scream 4... assumed the Scream series has died with Scream 3 but I guess Hollywood really has no original idea anymore so they had to resurrect all kinds of old movies/storylines these day (case in point: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Clash of the Titans).
Don't get me wrong, I am really looking forward to this movie. I loved the first one! The second one was okay. The third one was just so-so... hopefully this one will be better.
Apparently, Emma Roberts (niece of Julia, starred in Nancy Drew) is being cast in the Sydney-like role that made Neve Campbell a star. And all three stars from the first three movies are coming back as well... can't wait..

In other casting news, James McAvoy will not be shooting curved bullets as of yet coz he will be a telepath. Specifically Charles Xavier.

Yup, in a Wolverine: Origin-like movie, McAvoy will play young Xavier when he was still friends with Magneto (uncast still at this point)...

Paula Abdul

Remember the judge on American Idol that Ellen DeGeneres replaced? Paula Abdul? She's reemerging with her own reality talent competition, due out next year...

I remember growing up listening to Paula, mostly coz of my sister but I do liked her because her songs was groovy and catchy and her video clips were quite fun...

Nice debut...

Several songs were nice...

Where her fall from the top started...

Quite the entertainer... her concert was fun... :)

Which two is the Final Two and which one got eliminated?

Movie News

Megan Fox won't be in the third Transformers movie... some say it's her decision to not be in it, while others say she was dropped coz of the fighting she did back then with the director... who knows right?

But judging from the second movie, I guess it's a good thing she dropped coz if the third is going the same way the second was... then it'd suck just like the second one...

In other news, 'Heroes' (and NBC) is being sued for copyright infringement... seems the fourth season's theme of the carnival is very much a 'copy-paste' from this:

Btw, Heroes have been definitely canceled... no fifth season to properly end the show... :(

A Nightmare On Elm Street

Yesterday, a colleague and me went to see this movie...

Yup, the infamous Freddy Krueger in a modern retelling of the slasher flick, brought to us by Advertlets...

Held at GSC Midvalley (along with other media (Cinema Online, The Star etc) screenings)
We got there quite early. We left the office at about 7.15. We got to Midvalley at 7.30. Nice eh?
So we went straight to GSC to check out the thingy. There was already a long line but when investigated upon, it turned out to be the lines for Cinema Online. So I looked around and saw the Advertlets booth, closer to the concession stand. Unfortunately, it was empty. We're early. So we decided to go for dinner first.
Aren't these salmon scrumptious? *drools*
So close to 8 o'clock, I made a dash to GSC, leaving my colleague still scarfing down sushi... *envious*

Finally, there are people there... I had thought that maybe we missed the ticket redemption time... *phew*

There were only a few people in front of me but the waiting took almost forever. Come on people! Move it! The sushi ain't gonna wait for me! Sigh...

When I get closer to the front, I found out what the delay was... some people were negotiating to sit together with their other friends while some of them were negotiating about tickets? I did not really get the gist of that conversation coz I was fuming mad (and hungry). One more minute of waiting and I'd throw a hissy fit right there and then. Luckily, I did not have to wait another minute. I told the Advertlets guys my name and they said my blog name, even without looking at the list. Wow! That was a nice feeling. So I was not mad anymore. Hehhehe...

Then she (didn't catch her name) told me I'd won a t-shirt! Yay! But they said they'd give it to me in the screening hall... okay I guess... so the other guy (also did not get his name) asked me if I wanted A or B... woah, that's like the back of the hall... cool beans... I asked for A... of course...

Then I rushed back to Sushi King, where my colleague has eaten half of the Kaiten Belt... but I was too excited/nervous/giddy from finding out I won something and that people knows of me/my blog and that I got nice seats so I only ate a couple of plates more and we were gone...

Our seats in the back

Our vantage point... nice eh? Complete with Angels in the air, probably to protect us from Freddy...

Wow, this post is getting to be long... maybe I should keep the review short...

Freddy Krueger was a childhood nightmare, so to speak... this new Freddy isn't as scary or creepy as the original Freddy but the new Freddy has a malevolent aura that the old Freddy doesn't... this one made Robert Englund's Freddy looked a bit campy... huhuhu...

Not much to say about the storylines... ya know, kids sleep, meet Freddy, scream lungs out, slashing, dead... the usual...

But I gotta say the movie is creepy and quite suspenseful... not really scary as we've seen the movie/villain before but nice nonetheless...

Now, I don't exactly remember the original movie since it was years ago since I last saw it and I'd imagine there were a few tweaks here and there that are a bit different... I think...

And of course, the movie had to end on a cliffhanger... which we knew was coming but overall, I'd say good effort indeed :)

Thanks Advertlets! I am glad I participated in the contest...

P/S - I never got that prize... dunno what happened... maybe we came in too late to the screening hall and missed the prize giving ceremony... :(

Top 4

This week's theme is songs from movies... with Jamie Foxx mentoring...
