Car Crash Review: Eclipse

The Twilight franchise is like junk food for my head.  It’s like looking at a big, sugary donut and you crave it, so you eat it, but afterwards you feel a bit guilty and sick and think you really shouldn’t eat one again any time soon.  But then of course you do.

The films in particular are a total sugar-crash for my mind.  They seem like a really good idea at first, but by the time I’m halfway through I’m sort of waiting for it to end  and feeling sort of silly for getting so excited over scenes of saccharine teenage love in the first place.

Jennifer Aniston must have walked past or something…

So there’s talk of Angelina Jolie, aka Queen of the Universe, being cast as the next cat woman.

Well duh!  Just look at her.  She has what must be the most gorgeously feline face in the world.  Sigh… sorry where was I?  My eyes keep wondering back to the picture.

Seriously, I think the role would suit her perfectly.  Not just because of her looks but because she’s really quite good at smouldering and kicking arse while not saying a great deal.  

Take Wanted as an example.  She’s always pouting, and looking great, all while shooting someone in the head or breaking their back, but she only ever utters a line every half hour. 

Not that she can’t deliver lines, as her performance in Girl, Interrupted proves.  Therefore if she’s going to be type-cast as the hot-but-mysteriously-tormented-action-goddess, so be it!

Either way the woman is going to win with this.  After all, the Razzie-winning version that starred Halle Berry is not going to be hard to beat is it?
