Heitor Dhalia

Kevin Carr

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr fights a battle of wits between the stuffy and overly dramatic Oscar contenders that will be buzzing through the weekend and the genre-specific schlock that is being released with no hope of winning any sort of award at all. Before hunkering down on the couch to watch Billy Crystal time warp back into the mid-90s on Sunday, Kevin skydives into the multiplex to check out Act of Valor. Then he joins a commune to be a modern hippie while watching Wanderlust. Finally, he leaves the multiplex to stalk Amanda Seyfried and her on-screen sister because he believes he’s at least as creepy as the legions of creepy guys in Gone. Oh, and that Tyler Perry movie? He skips that with a wave of the hand and a snap of the fingers. If it ain’t got Madea in it, it ain’t worth watching!

So the young girl finds herself having to take matters into her own hands, track down the guy who put her through a traumatic ordeal, and get her sister back before it is too late. Producer Tom Rosenberg says that Amanda Seyfried is the “perfect actress to play the smart and fearless heroine in Gone.” Man, can that guy sell or what? I’m in! Truthfully, all of this sounds pretty uninteresting. The news only appealed to me because I happen to be a huge fan of Seyfried. The few things she’s done that are good have really given her a platform to shine, and even the loads of crap she has made always looks way better for having her involved. What pure filth like Dear John and Jennifer’s Body and mixed bags like Chloe have in common is that Amanda Seyfried is the best thing going in all of them. Plus she is just really beautiful. Like astoundingly beautiful. And now we can post a great big picture of her for everyone […]
