Florence and The Machine : New Favorite Things: Music

22 Sep

The first time I heard Florence and the Machine‘s music was on the “Twilight Saga : Eclipse” soundtrack when it came out this summer. The song “Heavy in your Arms” immediately had me hook and I was immediately captivated by her beautifully unique voice and listened to the song over and over.

I then saw a video for “Dog Days are Over” and was completely paralyzed in front of the TV.  This video epitomizes what good music videos are, amazing music with great wardrobe, hair, makeup, choreography and very visually dynamic and appealing.

The next step in my possession was seeing her perform on the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and the only words that I can force out are “WOW” Not only did she really sing but her hair, wardrobe, choreography and state presence were stunning and absolutely bewitching.  I liked the performance even more after hearing that So You Think You Can Dance‘s Travis Wall did the choreogrphy.  If you haven’t seen any of his work, check him out, even if you don’t normally like contemporary dance because he is a true artist in what he does.

Florence and the Machine are also going to be at Voodoo Festival in New Orleans Halloween Weekend.  It is going to be amazing.

The Twilight Saga : Eclipse…My Review

6 Jul

So I went to see Eclipse for the midnight showing on Tuesday the 29th ( I know I am a nerd) and I wanted to share my thoughts, comments, likes etc with you all.

First and foremost I am a Twilight fan and I understand that these movies are made for the fans and for the people involved in this universe, that said, I loved Eclipse! I think it was a great adaptation of most people’s favorite book in the series.  Yes some things were left out but people remember the production teams only have about 2 hours to work with and not every single detail from a crazy long book can be squeezed into a 2 hour long book.  I think that overall the acting was better, there was more real humor and that the cast looked great.  There were some things that still came off cheesy to me and sometimes Edward was in some really random outfits (random tappered ankle windpants during the fight practice) but other than that I was pretty darn satisfied.

I think some of the best moments of Eclipse were there and accounted for.  The bed makeout scene, the proposal, the Jacob Kiss/Punch, The real Jacob Kiss, the battle etc.  Many people are hating on the end stating that Bella’s speech is really random and that it doesn’t end with Edward “wanting” Bella and essentially making out until the end of the book but I kind of liked the speech.  I think it was heartfelt and gave you some time to see inside Bella’s head rather than just seeing Edward and Bella make out again.

All in all I really liked it and I think that any true Twilight fan that says they don’t like it is lying

“the Short Second Life of Bree Tanner”

6 Jun

Ok so I have been a HUGE Twilight fan for about 2 years now.  Stephenie Meyer has just created a world that is so easy to be in and to love being in.  Well as many of you know “The Twilight Saga” is only four books and i have read them all over and over and over again.  I am not a crazy 12 year old fan girl that can’t get enough Edward its just that you notice something totally new each time you read through the books. The way that Meyer portrays her characters allows you to really be thrust into their life.

The story of Bree Tanner is no exception.  Bree a newborn vampire that is introduced in “Eclipse” for only a few very short pages.  She is created by Riley for the evil Victoria in order to add to the army to kill the Cullens.  In this novella created by Meyer you get to see the back story of Bree and what is going through in the days leading up to the fight with the Cullens.  You also get a little bit of romance between Bree and Diego a new character introduced in this novella.

I read this 175 page novella in one sitting and it was really great to read Meyer’s writing again and to be thrust back into the world of the Twilight series.  I wish that Meyer will continue her writing with another character in the series as I know myself and other fans are not ready to leave this world forever…we will see.

So many movies in so little time

14 May

I am a huge movie buff.  I have been interested in movies forever but more recently during college where I graduated in Broadcasting and even more than making movies I love to go to the movies. During my 6 week maternity leave I went to about 6 movies…that’s right 6 movies.   In the next month or so there are so many movies coming out that I am so excited about.

May 27th – Sex and the City 2 – I am totally predictable in wanting to see this movie it is one of those girly movies that just make you want to dress up and have a cocktail to go and see.  The movie brings the 4 girls Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha to a Middle Eastern country (not sure exactly where) for a very extravagant vacation.  One question besides Miranda doe these women work or have any previous engagements? How do they drop everything for these lavish outings? The trailer shows Carrie running into Aiden….former fiance.  So the big question is does she cheat or doesn’t she. I can’t say that I wouldn’t blame her.  After what Mr. Big did to her in teh first movie I would still be pissed.  I’m sure it is going to be a really funny feel good movie and one of those movies that make you feel a part of something as all franchise movies do.

June 4th – Killers – Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher play a married couple that knows nothing about each other.  Katherine Heigl is playing a very straight laced very conservative up tight women…like she normally does that happens to be married to an undercover CIA agent.  He brings her in on his escapades which I’m sure are going to make for some really funny and silly situations. This movie will probably be really predictable but I am still really excited to see it Ashton Kutcher is really funny and doesn’t act enough anymore.  We will see.

June 30th – Eclipse – Words cannot express how excited I am to see this movie.  I am a huge Twilight fan and this next installment is my favorite of the series.  It brings up many new issues that the saga has not dealt with before, true jealousy, sexual tension and major action.  I am probably most excited to see the interaction between Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner as Bella and Jacob and the tension that this causes in Bella and Edward’s relationship.  All of the trailers and clips look amazing and I feel ike a 12 year old Twi hard when I think about the movie…so embarrassing
