Breaking Dawn Trailer Review

Some say that vampires shouldn’t sparkle in the sunlight; others say that they shouldn’t be overly protective, possessive and display signs of obsessive stalking, but those people should simply be happy that the series is coming to an end.  However, there are millions of Twilight fans and they’re facing the end of the series, well actually the last film was split in two so there’s still a while left.  Part one comes out on the 18th of November 2011 and part two will be released on the 16th of November 2012.

Today, fans were given a glimpse of the film as the first full length trailer was released.  The trailer really pushes the romantic side to the story, basically excluding the darker themes and focusing mainly on the wedding and the guests getting there invitations, plus Bella and Edward having sex in various locations, wonder if they’ll be able to keep a PG-13 rating, which results in Bella becoming pregnant.  I think it goes without saying that this will be one of the least ‘boyfriend friendly’ movies in the Twilight series.

If you’re familiar with the book you may be wondering where the split will be.  It has been said by both Wyck Godrey, producer, and Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter, that it will probably be one movie were Bella is human and one with her as a vampire, though the decision is ultimately up to Bill Condon, the director.  Godrey had the idea of shooting the second one, with vampire Bella, in 3D to differentiate between human and vampire.  Though 3D has become an annoying trend in Hollywood, it’s nice to see it being used to actually aid in the telling of a story.

Fan’s will most likely love the trailer, but it is very one sided.  The more romantic elements are shown, the wedding and the jealous Jacob love triangle, where as the darker mythological part, a woman being impregnated by a vampire, is only briefly hinted at, despite the pregnancy playing such a large role in the book.  Though the actually movie will be more balanced, it seems that the trailer was made to give the audience and over romantic view, thus drawing in the girls and striking fear into the hearts of the boyfriends.

What do you think?  Will Breaking Dawn be rated above PG-13?  Is the trailer boy friendly?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also don’t forget to subscribe.

Lucy Lawless Returns in Spartacus Season 2

Despite what you may have thought from the finale of the first season, Lucy Lawless will be returning for season two of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, which has suitably been titled Spartacus: Vengeance.

At the end of season one, Lawless’s character, Lucretia, was stabbed in the stomach by Crixus and left for dead.  However, it appears that the wound was not fatal and she will be making a full recovery.  Can’t help but think that a trained killer like Crixus really should have notice he hadn’t cut deep enough to kill her.  Lawless, though happy to be returning, does not expect it to last ‘I’m in season two, but I probably won’t be in season three… I fully expect to die’.

Other characters may also be reappearing this season.  Rumour is that Gannicus will also be coming back.  I’d bet money this rumour is true, they introduced him for a reason and it wasn’t just to have him ride off into the sunset, plus historically he fought in the Third Servile War, which is the slave rebellion that started at the end of Blood and Sand.  Also Oenomaus is in the rebellion, so Gannicus has to join or he’d look like a jerk.

Who would you like to see return?  What do you want to happen in season two?  Personally I want Lucretia to kick Ilithyia for locking the door.  Don’t forget to vote and leave a comment below.


Production of Two and a Half Men stopped midseason

First just want to say that this was a big day for the Irish, I hope everyone that could vote voted.

After hearing comments Charlie Sheen made on The Alex Jones Show, the show’s producer has ceased making the show.  Sheen insulted him on air, saying things like he’s not as evolved.  This outburst was the last straw for producers.

Production stopped yesterday and since then Sheen has made various comments.  Some are on the verge of being anti-Semitic.  Sheen then went on to talk about his upcoming HBO show, the only problem is HBO had no idea they were making said show, so don’t hold your breath for that one.

Is this the end of Two and a Half Men?  Does anyone even care at this point?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.


The End of The White Stripes

The White Stripes formed in 1997, since then they’ve buttoned some buttons that were really hard to button, fell in love with a girl and even broken bricks.  It appears that the brick breaking couldn’t last forever, as they announced yesterday that the band, which consists of Jack and Meg White, have split.

In early interviews Jack said that he and Meg were siblings, which was not the case.  Jack White, born Jack Gilli, married Meg White in 1996, at the time she was working as a bartender, and he took her last name.  They still insisted they were brother and sister even after proof of their marriage emerged.  Jack has since revealed that this was to keep the focus on the music rather than on the couple’s relationship, which had ended before they came into any real success.

The White Stripes have a massive fan based, all of which are devastated by the news.  However, the band does not want fans to be upset by the split as they do not have to say goodbye to The White Stripes just to Jack and Meg ‘The White Stripes do not belong to meg and jack anymore.  The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want’.  There are many reasons why they decided to end the band; the main is to ‘preserve what is beautiful and special about the band’.

Although no new recordings will be made, some unreleased tracks are expected to come out in the future.

Are you a fan?  If so, how did you take the news of the bands demise?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.


No More Gossip

Plus size and proud fashion icon, Beth Ditto has announced that she will be releasing a solo album in the New Year.  Ditto’s, three piece band, Gossip (formerly The Gossip) were formed in 1999 and first became popular in 2006 with their single Standing in the Way of Control.  It is unknown whether or not the band is planning on reforming after a while, or if Ditto will be going it alone from now on.

To start off her solo career, she will be releasing a four track EP (Extended Play- this is a CD that has too much music to be a single, but not enough to qualify as an album) in January 2011.  Deconstruction Records are producing her EP.

If nothing else, it should be original and out there.  Being out there is part of what Ditto is known for.  She doesn’t use deodorant or shave her underarms and, my personal favourite, doctors have issued a health warning because she’s made fat look cool (normalised obesity).  Personally I think she’s amazing, but I can see why others don’t share my views.

On the other hand, her solo career does mean the end of gossip, at least for a while.  Comment and vote below to let me know what you think.
