Love it or hate it, you can't avoid Twilight. Last night, I joined several other BUSTies (and about a million swooning girls) for a midnight screening of round two of my favorite teen vampire drama. To sum up -- it was AMAZING. If you're going to sit through a two-hour-long angsty teen drama, there's no better way to do it than with tons of screaming teenagers and their mothers.

Using photos of a young male model, Hsu told the women that he was the son of a Taiwanese father and French mother, and was desperately looking to marry a Taiwanese woman. The catch: you have to sleep with my dad. Read More
My Roald Dahl-loving heart sure got a treat this weekend and boy, it was satisfying. Normally, movies intended for children and their parents really don't get me too hopped up at all. Up looked extremely cute but eh, I still haven't seen it. Where the Wild Things Are has the extremely well crafted puppets, stunning scenery, etc. but that still wasn't enough to get me counting down the days until its release. Fantastic Mr. Fox, on the other hand, has everything I could ask for... Read More
