Remember the Good Old Days?

What Was the Scariest Thing at Comic Con?

This is not the good old days...this is a cry for help

EC: Robert…Robert…Robert…what are we going to with you? Cosmopolis has wrapped,so there should be no need to have that disturbing mess on your head. Supposedly, you want to be taken seriously as an actor. I get that. I really do. BUT, and this is a big BUT (and I cannot lie. *giggle* Sorry I just channeled some old school rap, because that hair style is so ridiculous, I’m regressing into my inner 13 year old.), no one can take anyone seriously wearing an ode to the band Flock of Seagulls on their head. (Flock of Seagulls, you ask? Well Rob, I was young when they were popular too. Just watch VH1’s Remember the 80’s! You can so learn so much that really should be forgotten. Like those hideous 80’s neon sunglasses, that I have been seeing everywhere this summer. Ugh. #thingsthatshouldremainburied

SWD: So much eighties stuff is in style. Since I do “Remember the eighties (or eh-ies as my cronies fondly speak of them) I had neon glasses, and strange haircuts and I wanted to be a Go-Go. I wish I’d held on to my oversized earrings and pegged skinny jeans, I could have made some dough on e-bay, #authenticVintage

EC: Now I am assuming that the unfortunate hairstyle is due to the Cosmopolis film. I haven’t read the book, since I am now reading The Help (ahem fan fiction). Diving into the world of racial inequality of the 1950’s South. (Just admit it…reading fan fiction, where Bella is actually awesome). You know IMPORTANT literature. (Fan fiction.) However, is it possible that Paul Giamatti decided to shave “the pretty boy” (that’d be you) after getting “the pretty boy” drunk on Merlot? Because everybody knows, Paul hates that Merlot! #thingslearnedforwatchingSideways)

You're going down, pretty boy!Get these two to Banana Republic or at least Target. No more Thrift Stores!

SWD: Off topic: Did you see “Bottle Shock?” I liked it better than Sideways (eye candy and the girl has cute 70’s shirts and boots)

EC: Here’s my question…do you think its a good idea to keep one side long, while trying to grow the other side back? Why not just cut the other side to match? (SWD: I vote mohawk, I ALWAYS vote mohawk *winks at young Ian and Rehvenge)EC: Do you want to match Kristen’s questionable black bra/white teeshirt look? That’s just you two taking the white trash look to a whole new level.

SWD: Colored bra+ sheer shirt = 80’s for the 10’s. I grew up in the age of early Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. The sheer was mesh, so I think LeStew is actually, classing the look up. Now if it were the iconic Madonna cone bra… we’d have another story.

Here at Talk Supe,we are here to help! Here is some helpful suggestions!

Water for Elephants:

EC: Just cut it short. You really did look nice in this movie.

Much better. Plus you would stop looking like a patient in the psych ward.

The Vampire Diaries Cast @ Comic Con:

EC: They sometimes have some confusing clothing choices, but more times then not they look good. Most important, their hair looks great!

You can have fun with your style and still look good. Just stay away from tiny hats! Ahem…Somerhalder.

SWD: The entire cast of VampDi has amazing hair. Always.

Wait, did I say that? Did I forget Klaus’ Elizabethan wig or early Elijah’s good boy hair? Well they both look good in the end.

True Blood Cast @ Comic Con:

EC: They are adults. Even if they are the same age as you, they act like adults. You are 25, Robert. Observe how grown ups dress at work. (Okay, slightly more fashionable then in an office, but still professional/attractive.)

SWD: Hold on, this is True Blood were talking about. When do they actually “dress” for work, unless it’s the “sock of destiny” #notComplaining

They clean up nice after all the dirty stuff happening in Bon Temps

SWD: Looking good, Joe’s so lovely I’m not even noticing the “v” is going into Stefan territory

Always a lovely and classy couple.

Robert, meet your style icon.

SWD: I’m sorry EC, did you say something. I got distracted.^

And speaking of socks…

Fun with Socks = Good, Crazy with Hair = Bad

Supernatural @ Comic Con

EC: Sam and Dean not only can bring cool to casual, but they can kick butt. Learn this and you can get great new acting gigs!

These boys can work the hair and the Sam's Shirts!

 SWD: That IS a Sam shirt.. Alcide wore it last episode, and Sam wore it last season. Love it!
EC: We have so much hope for you, Rob. This intervention is for your own good. Now we just need to work on your umm…interesting…clothing choices.

Alright, I'll admit it. Just start listening to Taylor.

Rosie the Elephant is Team Jacob! My Water for Elephants Review

Posted in Movie Reviews, Pattinson Ponderings, Uncategorized, Water For Elephants with tags , , on May 16, 2011 by talksupe

I might be having happy flashbacks!

I have now had two weeks to process my reactions to watching the film, Water for Elephant. I needed to calm myself down to the Robe…I mean visual overload. To give you a truly objective view of this film, not just my making googly eyes at the lead, heroic male. I first want to let you know that I saw this film with fellow members of my book club. A fantastic group of intelligent, classy and funny ladies who are not crazy like me. Honestly, they would be the better people to ask, because they are completely objective. (Unlike me. Pattinson = Pretty.) They all likes it, but pointed out that some parts did deviate from the great book. They, however, are not writing this review. I am. hee hee hee.

Well...hello there, handsome!

  The film’s director knew his target audience. This guy. If you counted the amount of close-ups, he would win. The next most popular…

Friends Forever

Rosie probably was the true heroine of the film!

But…Reese’s costumes were lovely.

Oops! Got distracted by the tux!

I was thinking about this…
I want a horse, so I can wear a cool vintage outfit!
Oscar Winners + Good Script =

Always work with the best!

A win for this guy!
So overall impression…exciting, romantic and a complete movie for older women unrealistically swooning for younger men. (Thanks a bunch, Reese!) 

Not fair.

Or this…
To recap…Pattinson was pretty and Reese had some pretty, cute vintage clothes. Which for me, it always comes back to the clothes. sigh.

Oh That Dress!

An Ode to a Very Pretty Dress…

I want THIS dress!!

The Water for Elephants premiere made me want this dress, more than anything! It was the best part of all the pictures! The guy with her isn’t too shabby either!

He's pretty cute, but not as much as that dress.

Heard people were going crazy over these two, BUT…

Important things people…

Ignore the guy…those shoes with that dress!!! Ahhh!!! I need the shoes, too!

What lesson we’ve learned here today…I love clothes more than celebrities.

Dear WC Stacey (SWD), Water For Elephants is…

Dear WC Stacey (SWD),

I know you are embedded in the world of Scottish Outlanders, and trust me I don’t blame you a bit. The character of Jamie is absolutely brillant and swoony. However, I beg of you watch this trailer for Water for Elephants and perhaps read another chapter of the book. You WILL be Team Jacob in this one! He is a swoony male lead, as well, and a fun, crusty oldster as well.

Let's Go To The Circus!


Our boy has gone and grown up!


Honestly, Pattinson is the lead in the movie. Not giggly Twilight and Eclipse commentary Rob. You know the one, a cross between a 13 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. I mean it’s charming, somewhat funny and all, but listening to him alternates between giving a wee headache and wanting to get him a matchbox car. THIS WFE Rob is like if he grew up and became a sensitive animal doctor like in the British Show All Creatures Great and Small. (Brillant, classic British TV!)

You better run with that puppy, mister!


I know that you’ve mentioned that you don’t like circuses, BUT isn’t Rosie the elephant adorable? Book Rosie is EVEN cuter. Plus…THE DOG! You know you love THE DOG! Seriously, I have a pathological fear of clowns thanks to Stephen King’s IT and I still love the Depression era circus portrayed in the book. It was quite a bit seedy. But the elephant and THE DOG bring the happy for me.

Who can resist a book about a man and his trunk...I mean elephant.


Unfair real life expectations to all the cougars out there.


Also, for the Twi moms who love them some Edward and Bella…here’s a love story about a cougar and her vet. Seriously, who can resist a movie/book where the heroine is in her 30’s (Hey, Reese!) and is the romantic interest of a young, whippersnapper. What a brillant and unfair book concept. Usually, it’s the OTHER way around. Right, Gyllenhaal and Swift?

Not only, did this book get Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon attached to it, but also Oscar winner Christopher Waltz attached to it! Oscar winners love the Depression era carnies!

Hey, Robert...if you are good we'll let you join our club!

Finally, my last ditch appeal…this book lead to this picture…

How can you NOT read a book that influenced THIS picture.

Alright…as long as you watch the movie and review the movie, I’ll give you a pass on the book. I CANNOT wait for this movie!
