I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't super excited about this remake. The original holds a special place in my heart and I didn't want it to be ruined. Having said that, I am hyped for this movie. It looks scary as shit. Like, wear-a-hoodie-in-the-middle-of-the-summer-just-so-you-can-cover-your-eyes scary as shit. Bring on the clown!
Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. Having said that, I’ll be in line for the first matinee of this movie…preferable in a theater with windows….with the lights on.
I love Gronkowski. He’s the only tolerable member of the Patriots that non Patriot’s fans can root for. But if I were a Pats fan, I’d be a little upset with him. Athletes can do whatever they want in the off season. Is it ideal that they train and stay in shape and try to get smarter and stronger? Sure. But if a professional athlete wants to blow off some steam and go to Vegas for a few weeks and get drunk and party with porn stars who are we to tell him no? As long as they’re ready to perform when the season starts, I’m OK with it. The only problem with Gronkowski is that he’s the largest human ever who is apparently made entirely of glass. He had back surgery in college, and has dealt with serious ankle, forearm and now knee issues. Maybe dominating comedy shows and bench pressing comedians is the magical formula. My bet is on Belichick letting him go after the 2014 season.
John Travolta has exited a kingdom of isolation to make a statement about his now-infamous Idina Menzel gaffe during Sunday’s Oscars.
“I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought … what would Idina Menzel say … ‘She’d say, Let it go, let it go!'” Travolta, who introduced Menzel as “Adele Dazeem,” said via his publicist. “Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy ‘Frozen’ took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
Travolta’s flub was an instant viral smash, spawning fake Twitter accounts (here’s our favorite) and the “Adele Dazeem Name Generator” (HuffPost Entertainment becomes Hubert Edjans). According to E! News, Menzel herself was not fazed by the mistake: “She thought it was so funny. She was like, ‘What are you going to do?'” a source told the website.
Poor Danny. He’s got the eyes of a wet mop now. And he’s definitely not racing for pinks. OK so I was going to do this whole post with Grease quotes but I’ll save that for another day. On the real though (new catch phrase) John Travolta had one job Sunday: talk for 30 seconds and introduce an Oscar nominated singer who’s name was on the teleprompter in front of him. I’m not part of the camp who is saying he should have known her name because I haven’t seen Frozen and I have no idea who Idina Menzel is. But I am part of the camp who expects a professional actor to be able to pronounce a name on a teleprompter correctly. Naturally he just apologized like a normal person and now We can put this whole thing behind us. Oh wait, no he didn’t. He started singing the song of the musician who’s name he pronounced wrong. GOOD. Love me some John Travolta, but ever since his weird beach dancing commercial I can’t say I completely trust him. He’s losing his mind, and someone is going to reap the benefits.
