Gillian Chung sure is cute

So I'm watching the Vampire Effect and I'm thinking that Kirsten Dunst does the voice over for Gypsy (Gillian Chung). I tried google'ing to find out the answer but came up short. Anyone know?

old school

Saw old school tonight. I think the average age of the people in the theatre had to be no more than 16. How is that possible at an R rated movie I might ask? The kids next to us were actually drinking. Anyway the movie itself was funny in that it's so stupid why bother do anything other than laugh way. If you want to see a movie where you don't have to do any thinking whatsoever, this is it. Don't get me wrong, that's no necessarily a bad thing. It slowed a bit at the end when the "conflict with the dean" [played by Jeremy Piven] came to a very Back to School type ending. And the huge fat guy does a triple over a gymanstics vault. Why? I would think they could have gotten more laughs from a basketball game instead of crappy gymnastics meet. The girl who plays Nicole was pretty cute in a Renee Zellweger sort of way. Go see if you have nothing better to do, otherwise watch anything else with Vince Vaughn over again.

hey, are you getting taller?

Saw Punch-Drunk Love. Wow! I loved it. I just love P.T. Anderson's films. I can't describe it, but his use of music and camera shots and jumping from scene to scene to keep this momentum is unlike anything else I've ever seen. As The Onion puts it, "Anderson handles it with expert ease: At this point in his career, he moves the camera like a skilled dance partner, investing the smallest gesture with significance." This movie definitely isn't for everyone, but then again most everyone is an idiot by my definition, so I'm pretty much okay with that.
