Mallory and I had a grand old time watching the 2009 VMA’s last night.  We tried to avoid it LIVE but we were sucked in by Kanye’s and Gaga’s ridiculousness. Plus Mad Men and Bridezillas wasn’t doing it for us. So we watched despite our initial protests, we watched despite the fact that we felt super old the entire time and yearned for the past where actual (and good!) music videos played on MTV. Gosh, we even watched most of the encore.

Here are some excerpts of our evening. Warning: Looong, but funny!

Mallory and I were quite surprised with all the reaction we got from our “Milla Jovovich is a liar” post on the movie The Fourth Kind. So much so we decided to do an update.

Is Milla Jovovich portraying a dead zombie?

Is Milla Jovovich portraying a dead zombie?

UPDATE: Please see our latest post on this movie.

Last night when Mallory and I went to see District 9 we were treated to about a half hour of trailers. One of them was for a movie called The Fourth Kind, which neither of us had ever heard of before.

Let me first admit, it scared the crap out of me. Mostly because Milla Jovovich walked out of, like, some wooded area at the beginning of the trailer to tell us that she was portraying a real life person, Dr. Abigail Tyler, and that the movie is supported by real archival footage. The movie is about Milla aka Dr. Tyler treating all these patients in Nome, Alaska who keep having the same visions of a scary owl. Apparently all these people were abducted. Not sure if it was by the owl.

Anyhow, of course, on the way home on the subway, Mallory and I set forth to investigate how real this movie was. Well, mostly it was Mallory and her blackberry.What we found shocked us. Because we found nothing.

"Peace" between humans and prawns

"Peace" between humans and prawns

You’ve probably seen all the posters and billboards promoting District 9- “For Humans Only,” “No Aliens Allowed,” “You are not welcome here”- it gives you an idea of what the movie will be about- conflict between humans and aliens.

If you’re going to see the movie to see violence, special effects and human vs. alien battles, you’ll get that. And you’ll enjoy it. But District 9 is much more than that.

Ron Livingston could be Henry.

Ron Livingston could be Henry.

Via slashfilm, The Time Traveler’s Wife is set to become a television show.

It will be executive produced and written by Marta Kaufman aka co-creator of Friends and Veronica’s Closet.

Is Marta Kaufman changing gears into drama or is The Time Traveler’s Wife about to be turned into a light hearted sitcom?

Of course, Mallory and I had a discussion on this and it was quite insightful, might I say so myself.

Gloriana

Mike Gossin, Cheyenne Kimball, Rachel Reinert & Tom Gossin of Gloriana

About a week ago I came across a country pop band, Gloriana. The band is made up of brothers Tom & Mike Gossin, Rachel Reinert & Cheyenne Kimball (who was the winner of America’s Most Talented Kid at age 12 and had a brief MTV reality show).

I had been hearing some buzz about them online and decided to give them a try. I am ordinarily not a country fan at all, but Gloriana has a very appealing and welcoming look/vibe that helps them get noticed right away.

Eric Bana & Rachel McAdams in The Time Travler's Wife

Eric Bana & Rachel McAdams in The Time Travler's Wife

We saw an advance screening of The Time Traveler’s Wife, opening in theatres today, but walked out with reviews of two different perspectives: Mallory is a big fan of the book and Marcy wanted to read Audrey Niffenegger’s novel after she saw the film. Here, we share thoughts on the Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams romance from both sides of the spectrum.

Reviews (and SPOILERS! BEWARE!) after the jump.
