O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou, Romeo? | Movie News

“Two households, both alike in dignity,

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene.

Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare

Chorus 1, Stanza 1&2

When the star-crossed lovers of two enemy families meet, forbidden love ensues… I mean, if you are not familiar with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by now…

ImagePrepare yourself for October 11, 2013, we will be getting a new adaptation of William Shakespeare’s, Romeo and Juliet. The cast for is very well put together, and they are all very attractive!

Haliee Steinfeld (Juliet), got her big break as the co-lead in 2010’s True GritImage

Douglas Booth (Romeo) is not very well known, the only major film we would recognize is LOL starring Miley Cyrus. Image

Damian Lewis (Lord Capulet, Juliet’s father) is well known for Homeland, and Band of BrothersImage

Ed Westwick (Tybalt) well… he is Chuck BassImage

In my personal opinion, it looks like they did a fabulous job bringing one of my most beloved classics onto the big screen. There will always be differences, there will always be something someone doesn’t like, but remember it is an adaptation. There is room for flexibility, as long as the heart isn’t changed.

But in all seriousness, go read the book, first. I will provide you with a link, so there are no excuses. Romeo and JulietIf you can’t seem to hack reading the book (shame on you), then I recommend watching the Leonardo DiCaprio/Claire Danes version.

Enjoy the trailer!

Actor Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room July 13, 2013.

Vancouver police have ruled out foul play at this time. Monteith, who is most famous for his role as Finn on the FOX hit, Glee, had entered a drug rehabilitation center earlier this year.
The actor has been candid about his drug use in the past, telling PARADE magazine in 2011 that he started using drugs at 13 and had entered rehab at 19, when his friends and mother intervened.
The star had most recently been romantically linked to his costar, Lea Michele.

James Franco To Be Roasted on Comedy Central

james franco You. Guys. This is amazeballs because I’m thoroughly convinced that when James Franco isn’t playing a character that he is a total oddball. Like, seriously strange…but not the kind of strange where you’re like “eww…he’s SO weird, stay away. Far, far away.” No, I believe he’s the kind of ironic odd where you don’t mind being around him.

I also have this MASSIVE crush on him and since moving to LA I’ve been convinced that I’m going to run into him somewhere…or at least that we could totes date. I mean, think about it, he’s like the only male actor that I can see dating a normal sized woman. I have hips, ya’ll…. and trust me, I’ve met a lot of these  celebs/models…if they stood sideways, you wouldn’t be able to see them. (The camera really does add 10 pounds).

Anyway, Im ready to see his oddball-ness [see figure 1.1]  in this all new episode of Comedy Central Roast. Also, I’ve got some sources who work with him and the story is that he’s actually high on life, not plants. Yep, it shocked me, too.

james franco as a cat

Also, I think he lives in my neighborhood. I need to take up strolling through my neighborhood and baking cookies as a “Hey, I’m your new neighbs gift!”

The Number One Song of The Summer

Jimmy Kimmel makes me really happy. Like, really.

He’s joined forces with Jamie Foxx, Gabourey Sidibe, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, Matt Damon, and of course Channing Tatum to produce the biggest hit of the summer (and damn catchy). The R&B hit is appropriately titled, “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum.” Can we talk about how hilarious it is. Holy crap, it might be that it’s 10:46PM and I’m exhausted but I really just think this video/song is the Cat’s Meow…maybe I need to go to bed.

You’re welcome.

Instagram’s Game Changer: Video

Instragram just announced that they’ve added the video feature to their app! This is way exciting but a little concerning for the Vine app people. What does this mean for them?

instagram adds video

Jmac’s theorizing this:

More people tend to actively use Instagram over Twitter  and the Vine app is more closely linked to Twitter. Unfortunately, I see this as a huge set back for Vine users unless they can come up with an easier way for Vine and Facebook to integrate. Plus, like I said people are already using Instagram way more than they do Vine and this way, they wont have to download a whole new app.

I’m totes excited about Instagram video, ya’ll.
