It’s Friday…what a week. For one thing, PCA nominations came out (more on today’s Favorite Male Movie Star nominee in a moment). But first, how about Taylor Swift (also a PCA nominee, by the way)?! This little starlet swept the CMA’s and demonstrated that you can be young and funny and apparently very gracious too — as we learned during last weekend’s SNL. Hard to imagine that this young lady’s star could be any more on the rise, but it looks like we’ll be watching her sparkle for many years to come.
Couple of movies opening this weekend …some quite interesting but only one looks like a cash cow. Essentially it seems nobody wants to get in the way of 2012 (remember, we were warned) because there’s an apocalyptic-Mayan-Calendar-based-John-Cusack-end-of-the-world vehicle with “box office champ” written all over it. We also have a movie opening called Pirate Radio, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman that’s all about a 1960’s radio station that broadcast from a ship off the coast of England. Then, for the family (but it looks smart too…I’m betting you could catch this on a non-kid date and enjoy it as well) called The Fantastic Mr. Fox with the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray. I tend to think these guys make pretty good movie choices. You might also watch Woody Harrelson in The Messenger, or perhaps you’ll catch a cool little movie called Dare with Ana Gasteyer, Emmy Rossum and Sandra Bernhard. Or maybe you’ll just get lots of popcorn, forget about plausibility and make Roland Emmerich (director of 2012) even richer. Which I suspect lots of folks will. I thought the trailer was pretty wild.
Now for today’s poll. The past two days we’ve asked about two of the Favorite Movie Stars — Brad Pitt and Hugh Jackman. Now let’s look at Mr. Johnny Depp and find out which of this movie star’s films are your favorites. Once again, I’m tossing out 4 random Depp films. Voice your choice in todays featured poll and tell us which of these listed is your favorite.
1) Edward Scissorhands
2) Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
3) Finding Neverland
4) Pirates of the Caribbean
