Is Dakota Fanning The Scariest Vampire Alive - I regret that I read all the Twilight books because it forces me to have an opinion, even if not shared on the site about who would be best cast in certain roles. Now, granted it has been a few months since I finished the last book, but I do remember that the character Jane was supposed to be the vampire that was more feared of any in the world. When I think of that, I have a hard time thinking of Dakota Fanning in that role. Yes, in the book, Jane was described as having the face of a child, and so a soon to be 15 year old would have that qualification. But, I just can't imagine Dakota being all that scary and intimidating.
Tom And Jerry Movie - I have always been a big fan of Tom and Jerry. I loved that there were no words needed and that a few short minutes was all that was needed to really make something fun and entertaining. It feels smart even when I watch it as an adult. So, it is kind of with a mixed reaction that I saw that Variety is reporting that a Tom and Jerry full length movie is in the works. It will be similar to the Scooby Doo films in that it will combine CGI with live action actors. The brilliance of Tom and Jerry is that they were short and quick and to the point. I think that 90 minutes is just going to be way too much of a good thing and that the shorts will never be as much fun again.
Sally Hawkins Who? - If you don't have this week's issue of Newsweek, you should go stand in the checkout line and read their 13th round table interview with Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr. Anne Hathaway, Frank Langella, and Sally Hawkins. If you don't want to go anywhere though you can click here and read it. Read how Anne Hathaway comes across as just the biggest pain in the world and seems so spoiled. Robert Downey Jr is hilarious, Brad Pitt pretentious, Frank Langella curious and Sally Hawkins as someone who says like five words in an hour long interview. Definitely worth your time.
