Female Celebrity Look-A-Likes

Many claim they have a likeness to a celebrity but often bare only a slight resemblance.  What’s more interesting are celebrities that look like other celebrities!

Intense Female Character Role-ers

LookAlikeNKWNatalie PortmanKeira KnightlyWinona Ryder

I have always thought these three actresses looked similar.  I first compared Keria and Winona together.  Slowly the comparison between Keira and Natalie grew on me.  Looking from left to right and reversed, I’m sure you do to.

Bang Sporting Sisters

These two ladies are known for their long, dark tresses with a bang above the brow.  From their facial structure and perfect complexion, in a dark room you’d definitely need a double-take.

Comedic Blondes

Chelsea HandlerElizabeth Banks

Late-Night Funny-Lady Chelsea Handler and humourous actress Elizabeth Banks have a likeness in their faces and stick to the same hairstyle.  I was convinced Handler was the book selling blonde in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but Banks played the eccentrically sexual role.

 Golden Waves and Pointed Chins

These two female actresses, on the right angle and in the right light, bare a resemblance.  Their hazel eyes and lightly-toasted locks share a beauty that compliments them both.

Ridiculous Celebrity Quotes

We know some celebrities are trying to pass off their life styles as something to buy into *cough cough* Gwyneth Paltrow *cough cough* Blake Lively…  but here are some celebrities who can simply inspire us mortals with their wise words of wisdom.  Wonderful.

Jaden

When it comes to education, President Obama should continue his Jaden Smith talks… obviously.  A believer in extraterrestrials and son of legendary actor Will Smith, this boy wonder says drop the books and turn your ear to high-profile interviews.  You know, because your brain can simply absorb their smarts and make you smart…  duh.

Taylor

Singer Taylor Swift is known for her break-ups and make-ups and her stalker tactics when it comes to her pursuits of the heart.  But all is fair in love and war, right?  When your love begins with researching what your beau can do for your career and ends with a hit song for your next album…  it all becomes quite predictable, right?  Not so different, just insane.
Selena

Disney’s wicked actress turned songstress Selena Gomez has one high profile romance already under her belt: the Biebs.  What is shocking to me is that Gomez doesn’t want a guy who is worried about being “cool.”  Contradiction in a pair of converse?  I think so.

Gwen

Actress turned lifestyle coach Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t enjoy people judging her high-cost, high-profile lifestyle.  With a less-than-classy Vanity Fair portrayal stirring up controversy in her heavenly world, Paltrow’s stock is in threat.  Her peachy-keen, squeaky-clean image is about to go dumpster diving but that won’t put her perfectly chiseled face in a frown.  Back down, peasants.  She’ll keep on keeping on with her detox diets and healthy living.  You can just go eat some high-sugar, highly-saturated-fat fat-cake.  Fatty.

beib

I have many bones to pick with Justin Beiber, but we can just talk about his “arrogance” for today.  One of the most conceited boys in the entertainment industry (besides, obviously, Kanye West), the Beibs believes he’s like really, really ridiculously good-looking.  With his girlish face and pre-pubescent physique, this Canadian singer makes teen girls swoon just with the sight of him.  Gag me with a spoon.

kylie

Kylie Jenner hails from the Kardashian Clan but don’t let their attention-seeking antics fool you.  They’re good people… Role Models, even.  I mean, Kim Kardashian’s initial claim to fame was hanging with famous friends until her sex tape with rapper Ray J conveniently “leaked.”  Rather than have a bad thing keep a good girl down, she cashed in on reality television and roped in her whole family to ride her sexploited behind all the way to the bank.  Their “quality” television show and spin-offs every off-season portray them as simple, Jimmy-Choo-wearing folk who fly across the country on whims of party-hopping and clothing shopping.

That’s perfectly normal and something to look up to, right?

miley

Now, Miley shredded her Disney image and dived head first into her musical genius.  With an album titled Bangerz and songs like “#Getitright,” “FU” and “Love Money Party,” it’s hard to believe that this lyrical goddess can even top herself for her next album.  Music is obviously her life and she would die without it.  I think she’s being a bit over-dramatic but hey, she’s all about those theatrical performances… right?

Friday Night Fright: The Awakening 2012

The Awakening is a movie that you can watch alone in the comfort of your sun filled bedroom under the covers. God help you if you decide to watch it alone in the dark.

Scare Factor: 9/10

This movie is more of a thriller than horror but in any case you will want to have your hiding pillow in place because there are pop-out scenes. Beware!

Plot Line: 9/10

I couldn’t guess this plot even if I tried. The film kept me on my toes and made me feel like a fool for trying to relax. I was afraid and I could never figure out what would happen next. Excellent writing and excellent actors, which brings me to…

Actor’s Acting Abilities: 10/10

Now, I’ve seen Dominic West’s smoldering looks before, hello Mona Lisa’s Smile. Charming and deliberate in his skills, West is equally matched with Rebecca Hall’s performance. And Imelda Staunton’s always welcomed in any movie I’m watching. And little Bran Stark makes an appearance! You go, Issac Hempstead Wright.

Overall Score: 28/30, 93%, A-

I would recommend this film for anyone to view on this Friday Night Fright Night.

Happy Friday the 13th, ladies and gentlemen.

Friday Night Fright: House At The End Of The Street

house_at_the_end_of_the_street_movie-1440x900

 

House At The End Of The Street has a plot you won’t figure out until the very end.  Literally the very last scene explains the story.  Even the subplots are not revealed until this very last scene.

The story is a simple one: Girl (Jennifer Lawrence) meets Wrong-Side-Of-The Tracks Boy-Next-Door whose family just happened to be hammered to death by the younger sister.  Not the best luck, huh?  Good thing Jennifer moves in next door.

Jen just finds him charming, mysterious, and sexy with his misunderstood boy pout.

If you need a more in-depth run-down, check out the trailer:

Now, I’m a fan of actors who can bring poorly written dialogue to life.  I’m a fan of surprise, suspense, and adrenaline.  I’m also  a huge fan of woodland-based horror films.    So, let’s bring the film to the scales and see how it weighed out!

Scare Factor: 7/10

Not many Jump-Out-Of-Your-Seat scenes, but the suspense and adrenaline kept me hooked.

Plot Line: 10/10

Kept me guessing and I was always wrong.  I’ve seen a lot of horror films, but House At The End Of The Street made me a fool.  I’m serious.  You really won’t know everything until the very last scene.

Actor’s Acting Abilities: 8/10

They did the best they could with what they were given.  I don’t know if the writers observed anyone in High School or College before they wrote the script, but it sure doesn’t seem like it.  However, the actors did their job and kept me tuned in.

Overall Score:  25/30, 83%, B

Genius for a horror film you can get off of Netflix.  Watch it now.

Friday Night Fright Movie Review: The Caller (2011)

If you’re spending your Friday Night at home and want to indulge in a scary movie: The Caller will have you satisfied.

My Horror Film Scoring Method is simple.  Was I scared?  Scare Factor.  Did the story keep me on my toes or was everything predictable from intro to final scene?  Plot Line.  And finally, were the actors believable or were they meant for a different kind of Scary Movie?  Actor’s Acting Abilities.

Scare Factor: 8/10

I was scared.  There was a solid amount of hiding behind pillows and yelling at the screen.  I did not know what would happen or what would come next or who would die next.  However, I wish I could have been more scared all throughout but the storyline made me intrigued and tuned in.

Which brings me to my next scale.

Plot Line: 9/10

The story is based off of one premise: You can’t leave a phone ringing,  It’s in our nature as human beings of this technological age we live in.  We MUST answer a phone.  We even want to answer other people’s phones if they don’t pick it up in time.

This film isn’t like other phone based movies, either.  One Missed Call and Pulse’s cell phones only got you if you picked up the phone.  Not to give away too much of the plot, I’m just going to say what’s on the other line of the phone will get you “irregardless.”

The plot was not predictable and that is why it deserves a 9/10 in my Horror Film Scoring Method for Plot Line.

Actor’s Acting Abilities:  7/10

Rachelle Lefevre plays the female lead of this horror flick and she holds her own across from former vampire, Stephen Moyer.  No, he’s not a vampire in this movie.  Yes, that was an allusion for True Blood.

Lefevre plays Mary Kee and Mary Kee moves into the wrong apartment and messes with the wrong wrong-number-dialer.  She does play a bit of a damsel in distress but she adds a bit of a cockiness and independence towards male characters.

Moyer plays her love interest and could have had more screen time but this movie was more of a character analysis than a thrilling romance.

Overall Score: 8/10, 80%, B

Watch in the Dark?  No.  Watch in the afternoon in the house with my roommates?  Yes.

So, watch it on Netflix and turn your phones off.

You don’t want to have to buy a new one.
