GOODIES: Zooey and Joe dance charmingly. I stare blankly.

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Perhaps you’ve seen this video, I’ve noticed some people linking and sharing it, but I’m going to post it anyway so I can get all opinionated at you.

First, watch.
Goodbye forever self starting video.

Now, discuss.

1 – What’s with the introduction?  And why that one cut away?  Look, a side angle!

2- Set looks nice, yes indeed.  But then. 2:23, she takes off his sunglasses, and everyone wonders, why does she take them off like that?

3- This is Zooey’s song from her band She & Him.  That bothers me.  Is that wrong?  I worry I’m getting hater…

4- 1:49, cute.

5- 1:33, this has to be the most awkward edit I’ve ever seen in a music video.  Marc Webb is a veteran music video director.  Unacceptable.

6- 1:25.  UM, WHAT?!?!?!  Why can Joe do a flip / hand spring / whatever that is??  I am SO going to see ‘G.I. Joe’ now.

7- She looks…. cumbersome.  I’m sorry!  I’m not a jealous B, but the lady is no dancer!  I know I know, who cares, cause she looks cute in her headband.

So, fine, write me and tell me I’m wrong to be unimpressed.  It’s just… FINE.  But movieland, don’t you dare overload me and take away the sassy and special sheen that movie provided on its first viewing.  I don’t want to be a part of the backlash!!

DATING: Mean Magazine and Cinemash

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Well, shoot, how fun is this?

LA Times says:

In short videos, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel, Channing Tatum, Will Arnett and Cheech and Chong, among others, are re-imagining some of the films they love, with a twist and shout-out.

“It’s kind of like watching a movie and having it derail in your own head,” says Kashy Khaledi, whose Mean magazine has joined with Microsoft’s Zune to put together the new Web series “Cinemash.”

As reigning member of the CTCC (the Channing Tatum Crush Club) I am most excited about the Dirty Dancing webisode featuring him and Charlyne Yi.  And also curious if it will turn my opinion on Ms. Yi, cause really how bad does Paper Heart look?  Just ask Nina. Picture 2

Picture 3Here is the first post featuring the always adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the maybe-waning-but-still-cute Zooey Deschanel as the flipped title characters from Sid and Nancy.

And here is the release date page for all the webisodes.

I love shit like this.
