Thank you, thank you, thank you... I have nothing against Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Thankyouhesnotmygovernoranymore. I've enjoyed their movies in the past and I love to watch those past movies on a regular loop, but I don't want more movies with 60+ something dudes that even my mother doesn't find attractive making huge money. I want to see original and lovingly told stories like WARM BODIES take the box office by storm, hopefully to turn the tide against stuff that's just too overproduced or banking on names that have long since lost their luster. I like that while HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS is supposedly "tanking" at the U.S. office, it's still grossed well over $100 million worldwide. I wish that if STAR WARS (and since I'm old, I don't designate "A NEW HOPE" and expect you to know what I'm talking about) was made today, Jeremy Renner would be Han Solo.
Most importantly, especially here at Hotties, I love that Aussie babe Teresa Palmer is making major waves, being the best thing about movies like BEDTIME STORIES, SORCERER'S APPRENTICE, I AM NUMBER FOUR and TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT. She had some stiff (har har) competition from Nicholas Hoult, as I think if there ever was or ever will be a charming zombie, it's that blue-eyed string-bean-bodied about a man. The pair made the movie and looking at the natural ease that Palmer poses with for press conferences is enough to cause me to rage at Barnes & Noble for being too stupid to have the foresight to carry the book the movie is based on.
