Well the official trailer for The Iron Lady was released online a couple of days ago and it has me even more intrigued to see how they plan on portraying the only female UK Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. While the teaser trailer released nothing about the mood of this movie, this trailer is starting to show us some real grit and to be honest, watching this trailer, I keep forgetting that it’s Meryl Streep playing The Iron Lady herself. I wonder though if this movie is set to make Thatcher a hero in the eyes of the modern viewer or whether it will stick true to the split opinion over her 11year reign as one of the most powerful leaders the UK has ever seen.
I also just found out and bought tickets to a preview screening of The Iron Lady at my local cinema for the 7th of December! So I’ll be able to give a proper review before the movie is actually out.
Australia: December 26th, 2011

WTF NBC!? So the awesome show that constantly receives great reviews and has quite a strong fan base is being sidelined for the rest of the year by NBC. In the United States it has always struggled with ratings and so they’re replacing the time slot reserved for Community with 30Rock instead! Boo you whores!
This means that there won’t be any new Community around the ‘interwebs’ either until next year sometime. NBC have said that the show isn’t cancelled but haven’t told us when it will be back either. I don’t think this bodes well for the show as a whole, I hope this isn’t the start of the end for Community but it’s not looking good.
So I know I have completely dissapeared for the past few days but I’m going to blame the fact that a) nothing really happens on the weekend worth noting for the most part and b) my last uni assignment for the semester! YAY! So for the next few weeks, expect far more regular updates.
So time to talk some trash that most people may not care about. Firstly, Lady Gaga and Boomkack (Laurieann Gibson) have split up! Gibson has always been a loose cannon in my opinion and apparently having her own reality show has caused her head to swell and probably think she’s bigger and better than Gaga… Well step off bitch because the only reason you have as much spotlight as you do right now is because Gaga let you have. Gibson has been Gaga’s creative director and prime choreographer for ages, pretty much since her meteoric rise to fame and I will give it to her, she really did help create and push Gaga to the top, but apparently issues have been building between the Queen of Pop herself & Boomkack to the point where Gaga fired her the other day.
I’m not sad to see Gibson go, I’ve never been the biggest fan of her attitude or her choreography, there’s much better out there. Lady Gaga has a fantastic creative team around her so and she’s already so successful that I doubt this will even matter at all. It’s a shame for the sake of all the work they’ve created together that it has come to this but time for a new direction and a fresh director!
Also in today’s Trash Talk, Brad Pitt revealed in an Australian 60Minutes interview that he plans on only acting for another 3years and then probably get into behind the scenes production work. This is a shame really because I think as he’s getting older, he’s becoming a far better actor and I’m starting to find him attractive again in that “older hottie” way. He just looked ick the last couple of years for the most part, especially with that gross beard he had going for a while. But hey, we’ve all heard the ‘retirement’ tale from plenty of performers before that never eventuates because “oh this role was just too good to give up” or “I really felt that this was the right album and that I had to release it for the fans” blah blah blah… so I doubt very much that 3yrs will be the absolute deadline, but time will tell.
‘You Da One’ is the second single to be released off Rihanna’s new album Talk That Talk, scheduled to drop on November 21st! This song is a really easy listen, I’m enjoying it thoroughly, it’s on repeat which is always a good sign. Even since Good Girl, Gone Bad I’ve loved almost every song Rihanna has done, both her own stuff and when she has collaborated with other artists. Judging from ‘You Da One’ and the lead single ‘We Found Love’ ft. Calvin Harris, I’m going to love this album as well, can’t wait!!!
Well the other day I showed you the beautiful poster released by Universal for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ and now the first trailer has been released and truly cemented my want to see this movie. I’m just going to ignore that Kristen Stewart is in it and focus, much like the trailer does, on the awesomeness that is Charlize Theron. I really hope this trailer (which for some reason they’re calling a teaser trailer which it clearly isn’t) reflects the movie and is mostly from the perspective of the evil witch (Theron) because then it will stand a chance of not being completely screwed up. Not only that but I do find it hard to believe that someone like the barely attractive, fish faced Kristen Stewart is being pitted as potentially fairer and more beautiful than the ever stunning and genuinely gorgeous Charlize Theron, I mean there’s just no comparison.
Anyway, check the trailer below and prepare to feel that little bit of excitement flare to life inside of you for this epic looking fantasy tale.
Legendary are remaking a Godzilla movie and it was released recently that Gareth Edwards is directing. This Gareth Edwards made his directorial debut last year with one of the worst movies I have even seen in my whole entire life, “Monsters”. I fast forwarded through half of it because it was so unbelievably slow & boring. Which makes me really worry about the direction he’ll take Godzilla in, will we get to see a lonely couple treck across some great scenery with nothing else happening for 95% of the movie?
I personally loved Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla (1998) and have always found it an easy watch, even though there are quite a number of people that seemed to hate it but whatever, haters gotta hate. Also the writer for the new Godzilla film, Max Borenstein, doesn’t really have anything credentials just to be able to judge what the writing will be like. So right now, I don’t have the highest of hopes but who knows, maybe ‘Monsters’ for Garth was just a blotch (that critics love) in his soon to be history of film.
