ghost of girlfriends (2009) past 2 stars
matthew mcconaughey was his usual charismatic self while managing to be repulsive and charming at the same time. the movie had some hilarious parts and there were quite a few awesome co-stars, emma stone made me laugh just looking at her. i recently saw spider man and seeing her in those two movies made me appreciate her career so much more:) the one person who i felt really lacked was jennifer garner. i thought she was great in the odd life of timothy green but it didn’t feel like he was giving it her all. she started out strong but about half an hour in i was really disliking her character. a good movie i can see anytime and it had a good plot.
27 dreses (2008) 2 and 1/2 stars
27 dresses didn’t quite live up to my expectations but it was still a really sweet and cute movie and it had some really funny moments. i remember when i was younger i really wanted to watch it but i wasn’t allowed to so i was super excited when i was just scrolling through on demand and i saw it. it had some good laugh out loud times but i was expecting it to be a little more quirky and original. it seems like all the movie katherine heigl is in are all the same and i really thought 27 dresses was going to be different. i would definitely watch it agin because james marsden was great and they both had really great chemistry. overall a sweet movie but it can easily just be another rom-com.
Uncle Wayne: Tonight you're going to be visited by three ghosts.
Connor: You've got to be kiddin' me.
Uncle Wayne: You are going to be forced to feel things that you haven't felt for a long time. Things like feelings for example. And remember no matter how much it hurts, it's all for your own good. The stuff that's not for your own good it's for my entertainment.

Ryan Goslinge will write and direct How to Catch a Monster,a “modern day fairytale” starring his Drive costar Christina Hendricks as a single mother “swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.” “I am very appreciative to [producers] Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them,” said Gosling, who will be making his directorial debut. “We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling’s debut as a writer and director and continue our collaboration which began on Drive,” said Platt, in a statement. “He has composed a beautifully haunting script and has a very clear vision of how he will bring it to life. His ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker.” No other cast has been announced, and it is not clear whether Gosling will take a role

Though we’re all excited to see the return of Captain America in his sequel,Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the movie will be missing a lot of what made the first one so fun. As we all know thanks to The Avengers, Captain America is now living in modern times, and though his 1940s values and sense of right and wrong intact, familiar figures like his love Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), his mentor Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) and his best friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) are all long gone… or are they?
As you might have heard, the title Winter Soldier suggest Bucky will be making a comeback as a bad guy, and now they’re coming up with a way to keep Peggy Carter alive, at least in spirit. The New York Post reports that Anna Kendrick, Imogen Poots and Felicity Jones currently make up the shortlist for the lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Though they’re not specifying the role, a quick look at the physical similarities between all three of them and Hayley Atwell— plus the fact that Cap’s love interest in the Winter Soldier arc of the comics is Sharon Carter, Peggy’s niece— makes things pretty clear.
In the comics, at least, Bucky/Winter Soldier kidnaps Sharon, which helps Cap identify the villain as his former friend. But who knows what directors Joe and Anthony Russo are planning for the story this time around, so don’t count on anything just yet. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set for release on April 4, 2014, which means the production is probably moving fast to get the cast in place. Poots and Jones ought to have an advantage from being British, as Carter is, but never rule out Kendrick, who snagged an Oscar nomination for her first major role in Up in the Air, and seems tenacious enough to tackle a natural British accent in no time. If the Post’s shortlist turns out to be true, though, we should count on one of the three of them snagging the role very soon

Before she was headlining her own hit CBS sitcom, Kat Dennings was taking a lot of audiences by surprise in a small but crucial role in Thor. Her character Darcy didn’t really serve a purpose in the main, intergalactic narratives, but she got all the good jokes, talking about Thor’s cut physique and oddball behavior all while her friend and boss Jane (Natalie Portman) was too smitten to say anything. Dennings’ jolt of humor was one of the many pleasant surprises in Thor, and it’s good to know that, even though she’s a big TV star now, Dennings isn’t too big to bring it back again.
Deadline has confirmed that Dennings will reprise her role for Thor: The Dark World, and we’ll actually be seeing more of her this time— they’re saying she’s no longer just comic relief. With production set to start soon in time for the planned November 8, 2013 release date, all the rest of the cast is lining up as well— Chris Hemsworth will be back, of course, to play Thor, with Tom Hiddleston also returning as his troublesome brother Loki, and Natalie Portman back after an Oscar win and a baby to play Jane. Addiitons to the cast include Doctor Who’s Christopher Eccleston, in line to play some sort of villain, plus Alice Krige and Zachary Levi, replacing Josh Dallas.
Even with Game of Thrones veteran Alan Taylor set to direct— that show isn’t exactly known for its knee-slapping jokes—it sounds like Thor: The Dark World is committing to a little more of the unexpected humor that made the first movie so fun. Good on ‘em. Now if they’ll just explain all thisevil elves rumors we’ve been hearing about, we can start looking forward to it properly.
