HARRY'S MIDNIGHT DELIGHT!~!

Image
The midnight showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have allegedly pulled in $24 million for the 3,700 locations in North America!
Pretty impressive,  however, it only comes in third for highest grossing midnight film premiere, because both Twilight sequels, New Moon and Eclipse, beat it out at their respective $26.2 and $30 million. I think it's going to do gangbusters over the weekend though. So far which Potter Movie has been your favorite?

The Fighter Review

Raging Bull, The champ, Cinderella Man & who can forget the 8 Rocky movies.  David O'Russell brings Mark Wahlberg's passion project together after 5 years in the making. And wow, it was well worth the wait. If this doesn't get a whole bunch of Ocscar noms, then Bristol Palin deserves to win Dancing with the stars. (Just saying)

The fighter tells the story of two fighting brothers, The older, Dickie, played with such commitment by British thesp Christian Bale (C'mon give him an award already.) who is passed his fighting prime and a crack addict is now training his younger brother Mickey (Wahlberg) but true to life, family aren't always the best to guide your career. Melissa Leo is unrecognisable as the boys Mother, Alice, this role shows that there is nothing this actress cannot do, and finally a surprise casting choice in sweet Amy Adams as Charlene, the tough no-nonsense girlfriend of Mickey.  Now they all deserve noms, no question, but Adams…

Johnny not so 'Rotten' when it comes to Willy & Kate!!

As snarling punk idol Johnny Rotten, singer John Lydon famously railed against the monarchy in The Sex Pistols' Seventies anthem God Save The Queen. So you might not expect him to join well-wishers queuing to congratulate Prince William and Kate.

Adopt a Letter this Christmas

Image
The Adopt-A-Letter was inspired in 2007 by Baroness Kimberly Moore, CEO of “The Echelon Club” just 10 days before Christmas when a simple idea arose to answer Santa letters at the US Post Office written from thousands of children living in the community. What turned out to be a cute idea, Ms. Moore was shock to find hundreds of letters written from such needy children and families expressing their Christmas wishes to Santa. While some children wished for toys, others were asking Santa for food, school supplies, blankets and warm socks for their mom. A six year boy writes: "Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is is a nice warm meal with my family." "When I started reading these letters, I was heart broken," says Ms. Moore. “I would have never imagined that there would be so many children requesting such simple things, right here in our own community. Ms Moore and Echelon member Patrice Farameh decided to take matters into their own hands and answer hundreds of lett…
