“You Sunk My Battleship” movie 23.05.

When a giant toy company makes a movie based on a board game, the bar is pretty low.  Not that Battleship isn’t a classic game, but there was never much story involved.  Forced to come up with original plot for a license, the resulting verdict is bleak.  In addition to the mediocre assault on moviegoers this past weekend.  It seems that Hasbro also neglected to provide for the one possible compensation due to disgruntled fans.  According to my sources, not only did Liam Neeson never utter the line “You sunk my Battleship!”, but the line was omitted from the movie entirely!

So if you were on the fence, I just saved you some money.  Hopefully a mediocre box office result will delay the upcoming production on some other poorly considered Toys-becoming-movies.  Or at the very least, maybe Stretch Armstrong will be stretchy, and the Monopoly man will live at Park Place.

Bye Bye Betsey 11.05.

If you care about Betsey Johnson and her fashion empire at all, you have probably already heard the grim news.  The closing of over 50 pink-themed boutiques will most likely be the end of this brand in the true fashion world.  There is still hope, as the designer still promises to maintain her Macy’s line with limited runway shows.

While Betsey promises to fight the good fight, as a customer, I have a hard time imaging the brand maintaining the same high end appeal without the allure of the unattainable sequin gowns and boutique experience.  For brands like Betsey Johnson, girls often buy the perfume, hosiery, and purses at the department store as a way of imagining the experience of being a “grown-up” customer.  Without the dream of being able to someday walk-in to their favorite boutique and live out their closet fantasies, will they really want to wear the t-shirt?

Check out the post at Vintage Vandalizm if you want more details on where Betsey is off to!

Little Changes for Little Twin Stars 01.05.

Something is different!

Oh dear!  Little Twins Stars (aka Kiki to Lala), are a rare sight anymore, but when this shipment arrived at the store my favorite twins had a new look!  It seems that both Kiki and Lala have been experimenting with hair dye.

Kiki with purple hair is still a bit shocking for me!

All the new bento!

Do you like the new colors?  Let me know what you think!

It’s Showtime Synergy! Jem and the Holograms on Netflix Instant 24.04.

Outrageous News!  Season 1 & 2 of Jem and the Holograms is now available on Netflix instant!  You know I couldn’t let this go by without a mention, and maybe something extra.  So, if you are looking for some rock and roll, read on!

3 different episode menus, for 3 different Jem personality types.  Keep in mind I’m a bit limited by the lack of Season 3 here….

Raya – the eager new fan

Episode 6 – Starbright, Part 1: Falling Star

Episode 7 – Starbright, Part 2: Colliding Stars

Episode 8 – Starbright, Part 3, Rising Star

You know you love Jem and the Holograms, but quite frankly you’re a bit of a poser.  You could stand to brush up on the basics in fact.  Don’t make the starlight girls mistake of starting with episode 1 “The Beginning”, it’s not that great.  Besides, you get a classy voice over recap for the first 10 episodes anyways.  The Starbright series will introduce you to all the original cast, and their various foibles.  Spoiler: Kimber is a floozy.

Lin-Z - the commentator

Episode 9 – The World Hunger Shindig

Episode 27 – The Talent Search Part 1

Episode 28 – The Talent Search Part 2

Episode 31 – The Bands Break Up

You’re already a fan of Jem and her crew, or you’re willing to pretend you are when they’re within earshot.  You already know the basics, you’re looking for the plot points.  A little scandal on the side would be good too.

Clash – the hater

Episode 22 – Intrigue at the Indy 500

Episode 29 – Scandal

Episode 43 – the Presidential Dilema

Episode 49 – Journey through Time

You hate Jem and the Holograms so much, you’re about to watch 4 episodes!  In your defense, it’s really all about the Misfits.  And making fun of those pastel-haired whimps!  This selection includes Jem racing Pizzazz to the death, a roll disco, and some serious Techrat technology.  Plus a lot of Misfits Mischief.  Go get ‘em girls!

Comment below, and tell us what selection you will be watching!  Or just start yelling your fav Jem quotes!  “I hate deception, and I despise liars!”
