'NEW MOON' For Beginners

The Flick Chick discusses her thoughts on the latest film in the hugely popular Twilight franchise:


Lovesick vampires, hunky werewolves and brooding teens....

Yep….just another day in the woods.

It's The End Of The World As We Know It....

....and apparently, everybody wants a front row seat!

Yep, the apocalyptic action-adventure 2012 just had a terrific opening weekend, grossing $65 million in the States with a global box office gross of $225 million.

According to Variety.com, not only was 2012 the fifth best international opening of all time,
that crazy global box office total was "the best ever for an original movie not based on an established franchise, brand or best-selling novel."

(I'm thinkin' they mean....other than peeps like Harry Potter and James Bond -- ya know, A Box Office Dream Team.)

(Wow, can you imagine the box office take for Harry Potter and Her Majesty's Secret Service Look For A Quantum Of Solace With A Goblet Of Fire? I am SO there!)

I was able to see 2012 at a screening last Thursday night, and had no doubt it was headed for the record books.

I do love John Cusack in most anything, and I enjoyed the over-the-top special effects & action....but I did have a few minor plot questions.

Check out the latest episode of FlickChick.TV for my take:

Stay tuned!

This Year, Oscar Brings The Funny (And Hopefully Fey).

OK, so if you know me at all (or happen to be a regular reader of this blog)....you probably know that I'm just mad about a guy named "Oscar."

I also happen to LOVE those who can bring the funny, so imagine my delight when the two co-hosts for this years' Oscar telecast in March were announced last week --

Charming, intelligent and oh, so funny men: Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

Hosting gigs are fairly familiar to this duo, as both have hosted Saturday Night Live multiple times (more than anyone else), and Steve has already hosted the Oscars twice before, solo.

Check out the two of them in action together:

Alec & Steve Compete As SNL
"Hosts With The Most"

Hmmm....as happy as I am, I DO wish they would have chosen an equally fun & fabulous female to join those two up on stage that evening.

Tina Fey?

Sandra Bullock?

Heck....Abigail Breslin?

In fact, many in Hollywood & beyond are already sniping about who wasn't (and should've been) added as a host:

Several inside sources are saying that Tina Fey was a clear choice to join the two men, but her busy TV schedule just wouldn't allow it.

She has obvious chemistry with Alec on 30 Rock,

AND....she's also worked with Steve on her show, with very funny results.

(for further incentive, when Tina presented the Screenplay awards at the Oscars with Steve last year, they killed.)

My fingers remain firmly crossed that Tina will somehow make an appearance on the Oscars....a very humorous and memorable one, I'm sure.

What gives me such hope?

Well....she is starring this spring with none other than Steve Carell (talk about a "Dream Team") in the upcoming comedy Date Night, about a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous & romantic evening, with dangerous & comic results.

The flick opens April 9th....just one month after the Academy Awards.

Can't you just see Fey & Carell presenting an Oscar, discussing their upcoming movie....and stealing the show?

Oh yeah, I'm laughin' already.

Stay tuned.
