阿凡達蟬連第七周票房冠軍

本週末票房出爐,                  
阿凡達依舊以很大的差距拿下第七周冠軍,
擊敗梅爾吉勃遜的復出之作─驚爆萬惡城,
累積票房已來到$594,472,000,
到現在每周跌幅都還沒超過2成,
確確定定可以破鐵達尼號的紀錄。

What a crazy world ! 🙂

以致於我現在突然覺得它不會得奧斯卡了,
因為hater/anti的逆襲一定會開始排山倒海而來,
我有幾個朋友就開始對阿凡達這麼誇張感到不爽了。:p


至於下週挑戰者是From Paris with Love與Dear John
                                                                               
Dear John是兩大帥哥美女合演Nicholas Sparks的言情小說
Channing Tatum + Amanda Seyfried
導演是讓人不會太沒信心的Lasse Hallstrom
                                                                               

但就算是Sparks小說改編片中最賣座的『手札情緣』
當時首周也不過是1400萬,完全不是對手
                                                                               
還是來看一下預告XD

                                                                               
話說Amanda Seyfried,我以前真的覺得她很正,
從第一次在Mean Girls裡看到,到後來巔峰時期的Big Love,
但從前年Mamma Mia!後就有點退燒,如今再看突然覺得就是金法笨妹樣,
昔日的mojo對我來說都消失了….(sigh)
                                                                               
然後這故事真的無聊到可以後空翻三圈耶,
為什麼這種比席娟小說還難看,比瓊瑤阿姨還八股的情節,
在美國可以持續的熱賣與走紅呢~
                                                                               
不過應該真的有廣大鴛鴦蝴蝶派少女在痴痴等待這部片,
因為預告釋出的關係,莫名其妙的讓預告插曲Snow Patrol的舊歌
“Set the Fire to the Third Bar"在itune上被瘋狂下載,
打進到top100已經快一個月的時間了。(廣告效應之大)
                                
但其實也說不準,搞不好到時候我進戲院看了,
自然就會知道這部片的魅力。Orz                   
                                                                               
至於諜戰巴黎,
照理說也不太可能威脅到阿凡達,
除非他真的如去年的Taken一樣意外黑馬大賣,
但看預告就覺得應該比較差。(這次台灣到很早就決定同步上這部片)
                                                                               
所以可以提前恭喜阿凡達將繼續第八週冠軍了。>///<

天生神力就是我~

不知道有沒有跟大家講過很早以前我一支手機的事
因為這支手機害我從此以後就再也不敢拿摺疊機

故事發生在某一年的台北電影節
那天我要去城市舞台看片
遲到的關係,等到我進場時燈正在關掉
我急忙的找到座位坐下後,剛好有人打電話給我
因為來不及轉震動,我就趕緊打開來接
沒想到……..

『啪』的一聲

我的摺疊機被我折成兩半Orz

可能我打開來接的時候太緊張
一時不小心導致手勁過大
但Come on!我這個手不縛雞男怎麼可能有強力
但確確實實這支機子就葬身在我手下

沒想到最近
我再度發生了一件慘絕人寰的事
再度應證了自己的天生強力…..

                      
                           
                                                                               
是的,就在某天早上,
我正準備戴起眼鏡,
習慣性的拿眼鏡布擦拭鏡片時,
又突然『啪』的一聲
                                                                               
我的眼鏡居然從鏡架中心,
莫名其妙斷成兩半,而且切痕乾淨俐落,
但我在擦的時候明明沒有出力啊….
結果這副眼鏡就徹底報銷,完全沒有辦法戴了…
                                                                               
所幸我留有一副度數很淺的預備用眼鏡,
沒想到還能真的派上用場,
但它基本上是無法應付我的近視的,
害我前幾天出門整個人眼前都是一片模糊。

                                                                               
連擦個眼鏡都可以把它從中折斷,
我不得不相信我身體裡面住著一個小浩克了。><
                                                                                
有圖為證 🙂

Train, Hey Soul Sister

快十年前,他們以這首歌爆紅,
還入圍了葛萊美的Record of the Year,
在billboard進榜了整整一年,
大街小巷都知道,你不可能沒聽過。


Drops of Jupiter

我當年愛死這首歌了,
愛到連很喜歡的蔡健雅翻唱都不能接受。:P

但Train卻沒有因此大紅起來,
之後唱片成績就一直浮浮沉沉,
甚至再也沒有紅過一首單曲……

直到現在。

                              
擺脫了Somebody to Love之後,
現在換成這首歌在我的心頭縈繞不去,
我午夜夢迴都會忍不住響起開頭與間奏的「Hey yeah~~…」


Hey Soul Sister

專輯推出已經很久了,
原本以為又會是張新低點,
沒想到打了快半年的這首歌,
沉睡好一陣,終於在排行榜一瞬間爬起來,
最高名次來到#7,不無繼續上升的機會,
再次打入top10,相隔快十年Train終於又有一首大紅單曲。

所以我們要給one hit wonder多點時間,
有時候他還是會有second one。XD

這首我都不把他當rock看了,
軟成這樣根本就是鄉間民謠。:p

歌曲是由Train的主唱Pat Monahan,
與挪威知名的duo─Espionage二度合作的歌曲,
原本是想要寫成有點像INXS的調調,
沒想到在Espionage的成員Espen巧手一把ukulele下,
就變成了我們現在聽到的folk風格,確實相當清新。

MV拍的也不錯,是我繼1,2,3,4/Fall for You後的新小品推薦。

Leighton Meester出唱片!? 沒在給你鬧玩的

先來介紹近期我最喜歡,聽最多遍的一首歌。       
                                           
  
出來很久了,但我最近才一直反覆的聽。
                 
曲風是仿80年代的eletropop,然後帶點trance
編曲與歌手演繹上真的有做出那個復古的時尚感
                    
“I really wanted to make something that’s completely different
from anything that’s on the radio right now," said Leighton.
“I feel like it’s really dancy and fun, but it’s still laid back and
relaxed and moody and sexy."

                 
So hot !!!!!!!!!!!!
特別是當Robin Thicke的第二啪出來時,
聲音迷人性感到我整個人都要溶化了….
                 
Robin Thicke在Evolution那張時我還沒發現
原來是個又帥又迷人的才子
           
以演戲出身,靠著Gossip Girl大紅,
但Leighton Meester這回出唱片沒在隨便,
看的出來是有想法的,音樂sense也不賴,
目前兩首歌(這首包括下面要介紹的另一首)質感都很好。

希望首張專輯能成功啦,雖然前景不太樂觀,
至少要賣的比Vanessa Hudgens好啦
          
首張專輯名稱叫做:Love Is a Drug
正式發行日期還未公佈


           
MV導演是John Cassavetes的女兒Zoe Cassavetes
也是獨立製片新銳女導演,拍過評價不錯的Broken English
Leighton在MV裡盡情撩撥解放,與Robin之間很有magic power
我覺得拍的很好看。
                 
來聽一下Leighton的live
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2u_AbVeHkU
音域真的很窄XDDDDDD
              
lyrics:
                 
(Leighton Messner)
Paris, France to Michigan
London town and through Berlin
I cant believe this place Im in
Everywhere and back again
Porcelain and China dolls
Give me one and Ive seen them all
Got my back against the wall
Wonder where Ill be tomorrow?
                 
But wait, now how long could this take?
Its hard to find a man,
When youre gone before he wakes.
They say its hard to achieve
But cant a girl believe?
              
(Chorus)
Is there somebody who still believes in love?
I know youre out there
Theres got to be somebody
I search around the world
But I cant seem to find
Somebody to love
                 
(Robin Thicke)
Baby girl, there you at
Looking at me like a putty cat
Wondering where that thing is at
Wondering where your ring is at
Nobody ever did it quite like this
Nobody ever did it quite like you
Do your hair, I bought you shoes
We can hit the town like superstars do
You fall in love? Then let me show you love
Give me the key to your heart
I can give you what you want
When youre waiting for love
And youre lookin for someone
Imma turn this gossip girl into a woman
               
[Chorus x2]
Is there somebody who still believes in love?
I know youre out there
Theres got to be somebody
I search around the world
But I cant seem to find
Somebody to love
              
Je t’adore, Je t’adore
Make a move, do the thing
Turn around, strike a pose
Je t’adore, Je t’adore
Make a move, do the thing
Turn around, strike a pose
Ooh, I like it
Ooh, I need it
Ooh, I want it
Hey Hey
                
I know its hard to achieve
But cant a girl believe?
               
[Chorus x2]
Is there somebody who still believes in love?
I know youre out there
Theres got to be somebody
I search around the world
But I cant seem to find
Somebody to love
 
–                            
接著要介紹的是去年紅遍一時的Good Girls Go Bad,
這首歌則是punk新團Cobra Starship與Leighton的合作,
可能是看Gossip Girl看出她所謂壞女人的氣質(XD)。

這首歌真的很紅唷,無論在哪個live都可以看到台下瘋狂大合唱,
我自己也非常喜歡,特別是bridge那段類似呼啦啦隊口號的男女互尬,
聽起來非常過癮,Leighton在這首歌裡扮演的腳色也很稱職。

lyrics:

I make them good girls go
I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go
I make them good girls go

I know your type
(Your type)
You’re daddy’s little girl
Just take a bite
(One bite)
Let me shake up your world
‘Cause just one night couldn’t be so wrong
I’m gonna make you lose control

She was so shy
Till I drove her wild

I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go bad
You were hanging in the corner
With your five best friends
You heard that I was trouble
But you couldn’t resist
I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go
Good girls go bad
(bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go bad
(bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go bad

I know your type
(Your type)
Boy, you’re dangerous
Yeah, you’re that guy
(That guy)
I’d be stupid to trust
But just one night couldn’t be so wrong
You make me wanna lose control

She was so shy
Till I drove her wild

I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go bad
I was hanging in the corner
With my five best friends
I heard that you were trouble
But I couldn’t resist
I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go
Good girls go bad
(Bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go bad
(Bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go bad

Oh, she got away with the boys in the place
Treat ’em like they don’t stand a chance
And he got away with the girls in the back
Acting like they’re too hot to dance
Yeah, she got away with the boys in the place
Treat ’em like they don’t stand a chance
And he got away with the girls in the back
Acting like they’re too hot to dance

I make them good girls go bad
(Treat ’em like they don’t stand a chance)
I make them good girls go
make them good girls go
The good girls go bad, yeah
Good girls go bad
I was hanging in the corner
With my five best friends
I thought that you were trouble
But I couldn’t resist
I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go bad
I make them good girls go
Good girls go bad
(Bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go bad
(Bad, bad, bad)
Good girls go

What A Catch, Donnie

來推薦一下這首吾與趙馬克都很喜歡的Fall Out Boy歌曲。


MV拍的非常好,把意識流給具體化,
雖然符碼很多,但大致看過去是感人的。

主要是拍來紀念他們的朋友Dolla
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolla_(rapper)
21歲死於槍擊意外。

這MV其實很難解讀,
1.Patrick在一個人的船上忍受了孤單無聊
2.意外的與一隻海鷗變成朋友
3.釣起了很多象徵性的物件(這些東西都與FOB之前的歌曲有關)
4.因此發現了一艘沉船,幫忙把人救起來
5.最後Patrick把海鷗給放生

原來還有一個
Patrick會向沉船上的Peter Wentz致敬的場景
但在後來的實際MV中好像剪掉了(?)

(lyrics)                                                                       
                                                                               
I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
                                                                               
You’ll never catch us
So just let me be
Said I’ll be fine
Till the hospital or American Embassy
Miss Flack said I still want you back
Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back
                                                                               
I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I’m the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you
                                                                               
They say the captain
Goes down with the ship
So, when the world ends
Will God go down with it?
Miss Flack said I still want you back
Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back
                                                                               
I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
                                                                               
Is the way I’m the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you
                                                                               
What a catch
What a catch
What a catch
What a catch
                                                                               
I will never end up like him
Behind my back, I already am
Keep a calendar
This way you will always know
                                                                               
I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I’m the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you
                                                                               
I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch

恭喜,珊卓布拉克要得奧斯卡了,
BFCA+SAG+GG,不得有鬼。:)
                                                                               
請準備一份精美感人的致詞吧。
                                                                               
喜歡她喜歡這麼久也沒想過會有這一天,
她居然可以在喜劇類金球獎先拿到之前就得了奧斯卡,XD
不像Reese Witherspoon還真的是很會演戲唷,
只是得獎作品沒有特別出色,
但Sandra在serious drama的演出能力實在有侷限,
所謂天時地利人和就是這個意思。
                                                                               
但看一下這女的多有人緣~
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NzsjS7kQIQ
                                                                               
起立鼓掌!>////<
                                                                               
致詞依然很sincere,
大家好,我是珊卓布拉克,我是一個演員。
                                                                               
Note1: 我想雖然穩得了,但愛哭鬼Sandra奧斯卡當天一定會大飆淚。
                                                                               
Note2: 連麥特戴蒙都拿兩座女主角了,誰能想到梅莉史翠普可以如此坎坷。
                                                                                
原先看似狀況混沌,但來到此刻,
連奧斯卡入圍名單都還沒公佈,
得主差不多都誕生了orz
                                                                               
比較不確定的只剩導演與原創劇本,
導演有機會給Kathryn Bigelow,工會很重要;
原創劇本是戀夏與惡棍之爭,
雖看似惡棍機會較大,不過昆汀已經得過此獎,
原創劇本拿過兩次的很少。
                                                                               
最佳影片、男女主配角、改編劇本、配樂、主題曲、動畫片,
預測誰入圍比預測誰得獎還有意思點。><
                                                                               
Star Trek一路都還是有強而大力的支持,
不過現在最佳影片入圍依然不確定,
要跟Hangover、戀夏、美味關係這幾部喜劇搶名額。
                                                                               
Invictus, A Serious Man, The Messenger聲勢來到低點了….
(山水明明就有買進A Serious Man還壓著一直不上,眼看就要沒有on right time了)
                                                                               
其他:
Avatar
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglorious Basterds
Precious
Up
Up in the Air

目前就這8部比較確定
                                                                                                       
TV:
                                                                               
Best Ensemble, Drama — Mad Men
Best Actress, Drama — Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Best Actor, Drama — Michael C. Hall, Dexter
Best Ensemble, Comedy — Glee
Best Actress, Comedy — Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Best Actor, Comedy — Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Best Actor, Miniseries — Kevin Bacon, Taking Chance
Best Actress, Miniseries — Drew Barrymore, Grey Gardens
Best Stunt Ensemble — 24                                                       
                                                                               
我想接下來這幾年戲劇類最佳影集
應該還是會Mad Men獨占鰲頭,
別的影集就是努力拼演員獎了。
                                                                               
Hall與Margulies應該會繼續攜手拿下艾美。
                                                                               
Glee也成了獎項新寵兒,
艾美獎應該十拿九穩,
第二季還能否保持下去品質非常重要。
                                                                               
恭喜Drew再度打敗媽媽拿下SAG。

趙又廷好文采 讀者誤為愛情故事

                                                                               
趙又廷好文采 讀者誤為愛情故事
                                                                               
趙又廷帥氣、演技受肯定,受西方教育的他,也寫得一手好文章,
他18日在部落格寫了篇〈定書回文〉,不知情的讀者以為他在隱喻
一段淒美至極的愛情故事,實情是,天性敏感的他,只是把釘書機
和迴紋針一生很難同時存在的際遇,化作浪漫文字。
                                                                               
他的文中寫到,定書和回文相遇後,夢想著有一天真的可以在一起
,「因為畢竟他們兩個是彼此最完美的代替品,用了一個就不會用
另一個」,果然,定書和回文還是分開了,直到十年後才相遇,「
將被眼前的巨火毀滅時,定書跟回文也在哭,但他們是因為極度的
開心而泣,因為他們又見到對方了,因為他們終於可以在一起了。」
                                                                               
他的經紀人許維琪看完文章也不解寓意,趙又廷解釋,根本沒有隱
喻什麼,單純是情感的抒發;被稱讚文章好到讓人看不懂時,他像
孩子般得意哈哈大笑,強調自己寫的結局很正面,因為結局是相遇
且融化在一起,他希望大家用單純的欣賞角度看。(中時電子報)

我自己沒有覺得文筆非常好,
但這篇的童話色彩很濃,非常難得,
寫寓言要真的像寓言,並不是很簡單的事,
而且找出兩樣東西的暗喻也蠻聰明的,
但我不認為全然與私人無關就是了。:p
                                                                               
篇名取的很美。
                                                                               
What a sad cute tale, Mark.
                                                                               

定書住在一個紙製小盒子裡
跟他的兄弟們
像士兵一樣對列整齊的挺站著
                                                                               
回文則住在透明小罐子裡
和她的姊妹們
姿態優美的側躺著
                                                                               
或許是命運的安排吧
讓他們兩個相遇了
無須言語
他們兩個就已經知道
兩個人是注定要在一起的
                                                                               
也或許是命運的殘酷吧
兩個人之間不長不短的距離
好像永遠也無法縮短
只能一生的看著對方
夢想著有一天可以真的在一起
                                                                               
定書的兄弟們都勸他
不要選擇愛情
不要走上這條路
這不是他們所應該擁有的情緒
這沒有包含在他們一生中
需要完成的事情裡面
他們兩個是不可能有結果的
                                                                               
但定書不在乎
雖然不可能在一起
至少他們還可以看著彼此
                                                                               
處於這種尷尬的狀況
定書很苦惱
到底哪一天會有個傻瓜
會讓他們同時出現呢
畢竟他們兩個是彼此
最完美的代替品
用了一個 就不會用另一個
如果有這種傻瓜就太好了
                                                                               
[這段的口吻很好]
                                                                               
眼看著周遭的兄弟姊妹們
一個一個的離開了
定書很難過
因為他知道 再過不久
不是他得走就是回文了
他們兩個就要被拆散了
而他完全無能為力
                                                                               
小小的他
沒有任何力量來阻止將會發生的事
                                                                               
結果是回文被帶走了
離別的那一刻
定書不理會他兄弟們的勸阻
退開了兄弟們要去追回文
                                                                               
但他立刻就摔倒了
也沒有力氣讓自己再站起來
只能眼睜睜的看著回文被帶走
                                                                               
他才了解
原來他之前能站得挺挺的
完全是因為他的兄弟們相互扶持
當只剩他一個人的時候
他甚麼也做不到
                                                                               
十年後
放棄了的定書
在完成他的人生目的
又被拋棄後
被遺忘的自己
在想盡辦法讓自己也遺忘自己的同時
                                                                               
回文出現了
跟定書有著相同命運的她
輾轉的也來到同樣的地方
                                                                               
當周遭的兄弟姊妹在傷心難過
自己將被眼前的巨火毀滅時
定書跟回文也在哭
但他們是因為極度的開心而泣
                                                                                
因為他們又見到對方了
                                                                               
因為他們終於可以在一起了
                                                                               
而且融化在一起後
他們再也不會分開了
                                                                                
–                                                                                        
Ps. 趙又廷最近最喜歡的歌,
是Fall Out Boy的What a Catch, Donnie,
這個人怎麼會這麼優秀。>///<
