I don’t know what pushed me to read the Red Dawn remake IMDb board — I mean, it’s a real task to get through any thread on IMDb without rolling your eyes or getting pissed off with humanity, but here I was… doing it.

Among all the trash talk about race, sighs… there was this post, and… I got depressed. LOL But as depressing as a movie like this would be, I feel it would be 100 times much more interesting than what the remake of Red Dawn looks like. I don’t think it can be marketed as an action film with American-made heroes, though. It would be a spirit-crushing film… almost like the perfect companion piece to John Hillcoat’s The Road, which is another downright depressing movie.

takeshi kaneshiro armani 2012

There’s a rare interview with Takeshi Kaneshiro featuring photos from his Armani photoshoot~ You can head over to the Men’s Folio website for it.

Sorry, I’m not going to defend Head Over Heels– it’s a pretty lousy movie… (the trailer is dreadful) but I’ve seen it like a hundred times on TV and I always laugh with it. Even thogh I like Monica Potter and she looks really pretty in here and Freddie Prinze Jr. was super cute and totally crush-worthy, I just keep coming back for the model jokes. Physical and dialog model jokes.

I really like how Shalom Harlow’s face shows on photos [1] [2], and I guess Ivana Milicevic’s acting career isn’t too shabby either.

And OMG, China Chow looks so spunky with that hair. Head Over Heels needed more China Chow. especially prancing around with the other models and telling Freddie Prinze she had a black belt to then back off. xD

Why is it so freaking difficult to find a high resolution still of China on this movie?

I remember the feeling when MJ passed away. Within the family, it’s common to think that you could not possibly cry for people you’ve never met, and that’s true most of the times. I don’t know anyone personally that cried when MJ passed, but I remember the day of the memorial concert, when Jennifer Hudson performed Will You Be There [1]… it wasn’t her performance, it was the moment when Michael does her spoken monologue with that broken voice- I didn’t break down, but I did share a few hazy looks with my TV.

In our darkest hour
In my deepest despair
Will you still care?
Will you be there?
In my trials
And my tribulations
Through our doubts
And frustrations
In my violence
In my turbulence
Through my fear
And my confessions
In my anguish and my pain
Through my joy and my sorrow
In the promise of another tomorrow
I’ll never let you part
For you’re always in my heart

garbo crawford susan lenox possessed

Both films featuring Clark Gable, released in 1931, and having a leading lady of rather humble beginnings that manages to rise to the top using her… er, skills. Of course, both Susan Lenox and Possessed have very different results. Though the cinematography in Susan Lenox is quite sublime at times — the whole introduction was marvelous with the shadows — I left rather disappointed by the end of the whole movie.

I’ve come to prefer Joan Crawford on screen~~~ remember, I got into her after I saw her on Grand Hotel, which came in the Garbo bundle. I was just left mesmerized. “Who is this woman, and where has she been all my movie-life???” So I do think Possessed edges Lenox by a pretty long thread. Despite its weak resolution, Possessed still holds itself pretty darn well. But even I must admit, I feel Garbo’s magnetism oozing from this still… even more so than I do with Crawford.

So… to me, Garbo on still. Crawford on screen.
