CelebrityFavorite Flicks of 2012 – Part 2!

I happen to be a total sucker for a great action flick, a real lover of laugh-til-you-cry comedy, and a total fiend for James Bond (but who isn’t?).
Call them “dude” movies all you want, but the fact of the matter is, I can’t get enough!
So let’s wrap up our entertainment recaps of 2012 with part two of my favorite movies.

Skyfall

As my favorite 007 EVER, Daniel Craig is not only swoon-worthy, but a total bad-ass. And when put up against a ridiculously creepy villain played by Javier Bardem, well, you’re in a for a cinematic roller coaster ride.

The Avengers

Bottom line: It’s CRIMINAL to have that many good-looking people in one movie. Criminal.

Pitch Perfect

What do you get when you put a bunch of witty, adorable, powerhouse chicks with killer voices and a lot of attitude in one movie? The hilarity and non-stop riot that is Pitch Perfect. (Warning: This movie may cause you to develop a serious girl crush on Rebel Wilson.)

The Dark Knight Rises

Christian Bale is awesome, Tom Hardy is terrifying, JGL is (Spoiler alert!!), and Anne Hathaway is the feistiest cat on the block. Need more convincing? Yeah, me either.

Django Unchained

Love, revenge, comedy, and a blue suit. This movie may not be for the faint of heart, but Jamie Foxx is brilliant, Leo DiCaprio is chill-inducing, and Christoph Waltz is a silver fox. Endjoy! (The “d” is silent.)

Now, I wonder what movies 2013 has in store for us…

So, continuing on from last week’s playlist, here are five more amazing songs that still have me singing loudly and dancing wildly!

There you have it, my forever favorites of 2012. I can’t wait to see what 2013 has to offer my eager ears!

CelebrityStyle File: The People’s Choice Awards!

We don’t know about you, but last night our eyes were glued to the People’s Choice Awards.
It’s always so exciting to see who wins, and of course, what they’re wearing!
We definitely noticed some fabulous trends, and here are our absolute favorites.

The hot trend this year? Brights brights brights!

Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect) was a pastel dream in a long, deep-v yellow dress, and Emma Watson (Perks of Being a Wallflower) was her fun, spunky self in a multi-colored mini, both daring and darling!

Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) was perfect in print, in a strapless coral tea-length dress! And Chloë Moretz (Carrie) was bold and bright in a cute, neon yellow, floral number!

Our favorite bright of the night? Glee‘s Lea Michele! She was totally adorable in pink from head to toe. Lea’s embellished lace mini was definitely a scene stealer as she accepted her award for Favorite Comedic TV Actress!

Another trend of the night: neutrals!

Our two favorite Jennifer’s were both stunning in black. Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) was the People’s Choice for Best Actress, and our choice for most sparkling siren! Jennifer Aniston (Wanderlust) kept it fun and flirty in a leather mini, looking ageless!

Ashley Rickards (MTV’s Awkward) and Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory, and the too-cute host) were total babes in blush pink! They made elegant look completely effortless!

Not only did Taylor Swift win a PCA for Favorite Country Artist, but she was DEFINITELY our winner for Best Dressed! Taylor simply slayed in a floor-length white gown, looking mature and demure with a smokey eye. Congrats, Taylor!

What were some of your hits (and misses?) from the People’s Choice Awards?

CelebrityFavorite Flicks of 2012 – Part 1

Trolls. Time travel. Troubled teens and… Andy Samberg.
These are a few of my favorite things!
At least when it comes to the movies of twenty-twelve.
So, without further ado, my top five flicks from last year!

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Both impeccable casting and brilliant writing make this film adaptation of the popular book a must-see. Logan Lerman is captivating, Emma Watson forever charming, and Ezra Miller is downright hilarious. With real emotion for relevant topics, this movie is a breath of fresh film air.

The Hobbit

Dwarves and trolls and elves, oh my! The long-awaited “Hobbit” was quite the cinematic adventure that definitely leaves you wanting more (So it’s a good thing we’re in for two more sequels!). It’s easy to get lost in Middle-Earth; the story, the characters, the eyes of a couple of dreamy dwarves… Wait, what was I talking about again?

The Hunger Games

If you were as in love with the popular Suzanne Collins trilogy as I was, this movie did not disappoint. Another great book-to-film adaptation, “The Hunger Games,” while heartbreaking and hopeful, told a wonderful story of overcoming all odds, whether ever in your favor or dangerously against you. Katniss Everdeen gave new meaning to the phrase “girl power!”

Looper

JGL is awesome. Bruce Willis is also awesome. JGL as Bruce Willis… Freakin’. Awesome. Prepare to have your mind blown as “Looper” keeps you guessing until the very end. And even when the end comes, you may find yourself wondering… “Was young Bruce Willis really that hot?”

Celeste & Jesse Forever

Celeste and Jesse are an adorable couple, practically perfect, but even they are a bit dysfunctional. Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg create the quirkiest, cutest on-screen couple since Zooey and Joseph, Ross and Rachel, and Corey and Topanga. “Celeste & Jesse” is hilarious and heart-warming. It may not end how you’d expect, but it’s totally worth it.

Didn’t see your favorite movie of 2012 on this list? Well, just wait until next week… I just could not stop at five! Until then, what were some of last year’s top movies for you, fabulous film-goers?
