La Daily Musto "Newsies is the new Annie" love that headline for this review of the film turned stage musical.

Movie|Line apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was just too busy to attend the Titanic 3D premiere. James, Kate and Billy made the time.
WOW Dakota Fanning in Wonderland magazine. She's looking a bit Carol Kane, yes?
Thought Killer an imagined conversation between four girl icons: Buffy, Bella, Hermione and Katniss from Hunger Games
The Capitol Interesting piece on Jennifer Lawrence and the career she might have if she plays her hand well.

Her presence is palpably earthy and unfussy, reminiscent of Ingrid Bergman, another natural beauty who seemed uninterested in playing up her looks.

I'd love Performance to be the finale of this series of Hit Me With Your Best Shot.

Wow. Jennifer Lawrence, a young Ingrid Bergman? Why do people always need to categorize each Hot New Talent. Are we really that simplistic? Jeez this is only Lawrence' second hit film. Let's let her actually have a bit of a career before we hail her a reincarnation of an Icon.

Oh and Nathaniel. "People Like Us" trailer is up. Pfeiffer looks great!

Yay Nathaniel for accepting my suggestion! I haven't seen Snow White in years so it'll be awesome to rewatch and participate in this. I wasn't able to enter these past two weeks (I've had college exams till now) but now I'm free! ;)

Me and a friend were just talking about Jennifer Lawrence. He was telling me about how unexpressive she is (I still haven't seen X-Men and Hunger Games and he was telling me to stay away from the former and stick to the latter). I suppose it feels myopic to compare her to icons and to crown her as one just because I can't think of anyone who can be her competition. To me she's warm and physical enough but I'll look into whether she emotes with her face or not.

I just like seeing someone bring up Ingrid Bergman in popular media. She and Elizabeth Taylor are probably my favorites among the big classic movie actresses, but it seems like Bergman, though a huge star in her day, doesn't always get the attention she deserves. It's somewhat remarkable that she isn't more appreciated, given she was so naturalistic compared to some of her contemporaries.

thanks for the link to the gawker article Nat.

The thing that surprised me most reading it was that in terms of average box office grosses, G and PG rated films were right behind PG-13 with R being last. (Maybe it's because we can get all the "R rated" stuff we want right at home on cable, DVD, streaming/instant view? i remember when my sister and her friends bought tickets for a PG film then ducked into an R rated film - Ford Fairlane, of all things - right in the waning days of when that was still sort of cool and forbidden.)
