The show stars AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) as the young Carrie Bradshaw living life in the 80’s and looking to find her new life in Manhattan, someday. Until then Carrie has to deal with the passing of her mother, the rebelliousness of her younger sister, and her Father who has been forced to settle into his role of dual parent. Then of course there is all the rocky terrain of adolescence as she navigates the love and lockers of High School. </p> <p>After watching the show I kind of shrugged and rolled my eyes at the fact that The CW Network has again loaded one of their shows with very pretty boys and girls with too much money and too much drama. I was absolutely prepared to allow my bias to write out a very damaging review of The Carrie Diaries. I really was. Then as I mulled it over for the day I realized that the show, as corny and bad as it seemed, really hit the idea of the time and place right on the nose. </p> <p>This is a show about adolescence and dealing with adolescent issues such as sex and crushes and everything else that goes along with being a teenager. While I did find the basic set up of the show a bit too convenient it all works itself out. As stupid as the conversations on the show about sex are they actually do sound just like conversations between teenagers who know nothing about it or who are to immature to handle talking about it without throwing out sentences like, “Maybe he’ll jam his hot dog in your keyhole”. Just stupid kids saying stupid things, but it works because fact of the matter is the portrayal is spot on.  </p> <p>As far as the overabundance of drama goes. Anyone else remember high school? It was all pretty much inconsequential and forgettable moments that we thought meant the world. Of course we meet Bradshaw during a time in her life where the drama scale is tipped way into the dramatic. Mother has just died, sister is having issues, her friends lives are evolving at a quicker rate then hers, and of course there is the guy she likes and the quick formation of a love triangle forming. It’s typical CW stuff but again, it all fits into the young life of Bradshaw. </p> <p>While I might not lift this show up on my shoulders and parade it around as the next greatest thing to come into existence it seems to fit the mold for entertainment that young teen girls and 45 year old women are buying into. Whether or not it will prove itself a bit further down the line or find itself getting the hook (no show comes to mind on The CW that didn’t last a million years) will be revealed later. Until then I’ll just jot this one down as a very good look at teenage life with a great soundtrack and a CW formula that hasn’t failed yet. As always final judgments is yours. Enjoy.</p> </div></div></div><h1 id="page-title">The Carrie Diaries</h1><div class="field field-name-field-talents field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Talent(s):&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/annasophia-robb" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">AnnaSophia Robb</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/stefania-owen" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Stefania Owen</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/ellen-wong" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Ellen Wong</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/katie-findlay" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Katie Findlay</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/chloe-bridges" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Chloe Bridges</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/austin-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Austin Butler</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/brendan-dooling" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Brendan Dooling</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/freema-agyeman" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Freema Agyeman</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/matt-letscher" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Matt Letscher</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-picture field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://shakefire.com/sites/default/files/styles/picture/public/reviews/543169_228851130560431_483522278_n.jpg?itok=fVuP1jVK" width="640" height="640" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-pictures field-type-image field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Other Pictures:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://shakefire.com/sites/default/files/reviews/540332_225424947569716_565794777_n.jpg" width="850" height="315" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-starring field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Starring:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/annasophia-robb" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">AnnaSophia Robb</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/stefania-owen" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Stefania Owen</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/ellen-wong" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Ellen Wong</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/katie-findlay" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Katie Findlay</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/chloe-bridges" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Chloe Bridges</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/austin-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Austin Butler</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/brendan-dooling" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Brendan Dooling</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/freema-agyeman" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Freema Agyeman</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/matt-letscher" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Matt Letscher</a></div></div></div> Wed, 11 Jul 2012 08:05:22 +0000 AJ Garcia 15102 at http://shakefire.com http://shakefire.com/review/the-carrie-diaries-preview#comments The Carrie Diaries http://shakefire.com/tv-show/the-carrie-diaries <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>The Carrie Diaries is the prequel to the hit show Sex In The City and will air on The CW Network.

property="content:encoded"><p><em>The Bling Ring</em> is a Lifetime Movie based on <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bling_Ring">the true story </a>of a group of California teenagers who stole $3 million worth of goods and cash from several trendy celebs in 2008. Zack (Austin Butler) is a new student at alternative high school when he meets the immensely popular and fashionable, Natalie (Yin Chang). Natalie is obsessed wtih celebrity and fame; so when Zack lets it casually slip that his father works for a studio, Natalie's interest in him climbs.</p> <p> Natalie wants the celebrity life, or what she believes the celebrity life is: parties, clothes, shoes, and fame. And Natalie is willing to do anything to make it happen for her. When one of Zack's panic attacks allows her to shoplift a new wardrobe, the two quickly become partners in crime, breaking into Paris Hilton's closet and reselling the goods.</p> <p> From there, the operation becomes bigger. New friends are added to the ring, more homes are broken into, multiple times. As videos of the break-ins show up online their noteriety grows, but the cops are hot on their trail.</p> <p> <em>The Bling Ring</em> is not a serious film following a group on teenagers into their descent of crime and drugs. Instead, it shows their capers as fun and addictive "shopping" sprees. There is a clumsy attempt made to redeem Zack,but by that time he believes himself to be  entitled to the "good life" his crimes have given him and this attitude will bar any sympathy the movie tries to encourage. Luckily, Austin Butler has a good amount of charm which makes his performances and interactions more watchable than I would've initially guessed.</p> <p> More vapid teenage fun than crime thriller, you could do worse than <em>The Bling Ring</em>. However, Sofia Coppola <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2132285/">plans to do it better</a>. Her interpretation of events just began filming in March and will star Emma Watson, Kirsten Dunst, &amp; Leslie Mann.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-talents field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Talent(s):&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/tom-irwin" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Tom Irwin</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/jennifer-grey" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Jennifer Grey</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/yin-chang" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Yin Chang</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/austin-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Austin Butler</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/micheal-lembeck" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Micheal Lembeck</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-picture field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://shakefire.com/sites/default/files/styles/picture/public/reviews/6jj6.jpg?itok=Qv-UYqhX" width="640" height="900" alt="" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-starring field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Starring:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/tom-irwin" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Tom Irwin</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/jennifer-grey" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Jennifer Grey</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/yin-chang" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Yin Chang</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/austin-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Austin Butler</a></div></div></div> Tue, 08 May 2012 16:21:05 +0000 Maria Jackson 12525 at http://shakefire.com http://shakefire.com/review/the-bling-ring-2012#comments Aliens in the Attic http://shakefire.com/movie/aliens-in-the-attic <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>A group of kids defend their Maine vacation home from knee-high alien invaders in this adventure comedy for the entire family. When Michigan native Bethany Pearson (Ashley Tisdale) arrives home after a secret outing with her boyfriend (Robert Hoffman), her father, Stuart (Kevin Nealon), decides that it's high time for a family vacation. Packing up the car with wife Hannah (Ashley Boettcher), teenage son Tom (Carter Jenkins), and big sister Bethany in tow, Stuart invites the extended family to join them at the vacation home for some much-needed R&amp;R and sets his sights on Maine. Much to Tom's dismay, Bethany's stuck-up boyfriend, Ricky (Hoffman), even manages to wrangle an overnight visit. Shortly after the Pearsons arrive at their sprawling summer home, however, things start to get strange. As dark clouds start to swirl overhead, four glowing objects blast through the sky on a collision course with the Pearsons' roof. But these aren't your typical meteors, because inside dwells tough-talking alien commander Skip, muscle-bound weapons specialist Tazer, lethal female Razor, and geeky four-armed techie Sparks. Before long, the aliens have taken Ricky over via a powerful mind-control device, and announced their intentions to claim Earth for the "Zirkonians." While the adults are completely oblivious to the extraterrestrial threat, the kids fight to save the planet with a little help from Sparks, the alien tech-specialist and one nonhostile invader. John Schultz directs a script penned by British scribe Mark Burton (Wallace &amp; Gromit).</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference
