Let me just say that this season of BGT has just been phenominal…not only has the American press been all over Susan Boyle, but it also had a child breakdown!
The following are some of the best videos from the finale:
And the winner was…..Diversity! Don’t worry, Susan Boyle came 2nd!!! I was very happy about this decision 🙂
Also, here is what everyone has been debating…should children be allowed to compete…check out what happened to Hollie in the semi-final:
Here is a look at a new show called Community coming to NBC this fall…I think it could be really good. From the preview, it looks like something almost anyone can relate to.
Check it out!
And another week has gone by! Britains Got Talent really is one of the best shows…what the hell was America thinking when they tried to recreate this masterpiece without Ant and Dec!
1st Favorite Video: This guy is so awesome. Factory worker by day/pizza guy by night. He is really really nervous, but the emotion he brings into this song is unbelievable.
2nd Favorite Video: This girl first auditioned with a friend who played keyboard and was horrible. She came back…and blew them all away.
And lastly…this kid’s performance isn’t great, but you can tell he is going to be a star! Ps. I used to sing this song better as a kid!
Ok…this is the film of the summer. Everyone who is in my situation, needs to watch this film. Also, the hottie from Love Actually is in it!
This kid…has got it going on!
This is hilarious…Twilight with cheeseburgers!
Plot: The memoirs of Captain Charles Ryder who is stationed at Brideshead Castle during WWII and remembers his involvement with the owners of the Brideshead estate: the aristocratic yet Catholic Flyte family and in particular brother and sister Sebastian and Julia.
Before watching this film I did as everyone told me…I tried to watch the original PBS mini-series with Jermey Irons. Although the mini-series was interesting, I didn’t get past the first 3 episodes (I think there were 12) due to its very slow build up. The most shocking thing for me was the heavily underlying tones of sexuality between the two main characters. I couldn’t make out whether Sebatian was gay or not. However, the film cleared that up.
The film took a huge risk by putting it blatantly that Sebastian was a gay man struggling with his love for Charles. The book and mini-series never specifically say that Sebastian in gay, but the movie made it abundantly clear. I found this to be better because then some of Sebastian’s strange behavior was accountable…like carrying around a stuffed teddy bear.
The film was beautiful and was actually very well done for a remake/ 2 hour adaption of a 13 hour mini series. I found that Matthew Goode did a superb job as Charles in place of Jeremy Irons, however, the actor who played Sebastian I found highly disappointing. All I can really say after watching this film is…Matthew Goode is gorgeous. I feel in love with him when I first saw Chasing Liberty as a young teenager, and now, I am even more in love with him.
I recommend this film for people who have either seen the mini-series/read the book. I also recommend it for people who like period pieces and hot men…I give this film a 3/5 stars.
Below is a picture from the original (note the teddy bear).
And below this, note a little video of my love Matthew Goode…
God I love this show!!!!
This girl was so great…such a surprise!
And my second favorite from the episode…a dance troop! Usually I don’t like dance groups, but these guys are awesome, and Ashley is HOT!
Caitlin sent me this…I don’t know why…but I couldn’t stop watching. This is for all my gay readers…
I don’t know why…but this just makes me laugh.
