I tried watching Easy A today. It’s had glowing reviews pretty much everywhere and word of mouth compared it favourably to past teen flicks like Mean Girls. The film was a sleeper hit at the box office and has an impressive rating on IMDb for a teen movie.
However though, I thought it fucking sucked.
I found it so boring, dull and really unconvincing that I had to stop watching. While I gave up after she fake slept with the gay teenager, Brendan or Brandon or whatever his name was, I lost interest as early as the first time we met her ‘totally realistic, chill’ parents. I’ll get into my gripe with those kooks later on…
Easy A tells the story (through a webcast…how 2010) of how Olive (Emma Stone) went from an ignored young high schooler to a popular teenage skank with the help of a lie and the rumour mill. Of course since this is a teen movie, Olive has a few hurdles – namely a love interest (in Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley) and a bitterly religious antagonist (played by Amanda Bynes, who is deliciously bitchy). Olive also has an annoying, whiny friend played by some useless nobody I didn’t care for nor give a crap about to google her name, her role was that forgettable.
In celebration of WordPress’ new venture, FoodPress I thought I’d share my own recipe. Now, I’m not much of a MasterChef, but I have been known to be a whiz in the kitchen for crafting up tasty repast with the most little of ingredients. Like the time I fed four people with bread, 2 eggs and 1 can of spam.
And with that, I present to you my signature dish: Ham, Cheese & Tomato Sandwich Surprise.
- Slice of cheese
- 1 finely sliced gourmet tomato (a serving of tomato sauce or ketchup will also do)
- Two slices of bread
- Mayonnaise (from a squirtable bottle preferred)
- Any garnishing herbs
I don’t know about you guys but I am loving the horrific new videos that Jessica Mauboy has been releasing this year. They’re hilarious! First, the video for her huge flop lead single, “Get Em Girls” featured poor Jess getting licked and caressed by one Snoop Doggy Dogg while grinding in a terribly-unflattering, multicoloured mess of a ‘frock’. Not to mention the fact that you can see one of the production assistants fixing the background at 0:13. Even her “de-butt” single Running Back was more polished and slick.
Get Em Girls was received so poorly, her record label rush-released her second single, Saturday Night. Again let down by a low budget, the video looks like it was edited in iMovie by a year 10 student experimenting with colour filters:
Jessica’s poor pop efforts got me thinking about other cringeworthy, embarassingly awful videos from other Australian pop starlets:
5. COLLETTE – Ring My Bell (1989)
Hmmm….well the last post I wrote was on how Jersey Shore‘s misunderstood flaky diva Angelina was recording her debut single.
Well, the track has now leaked through TMZ after some contractual issues with her producer.
