Review of the 2012 AMA's

The 2012 American Music Awards took place on November 18th.

Usher opened the show with a medley of songs including "Numb" and "Climax." It was ok and on par with other Usher performances but not the best show opener.

I can't believe that Justin Bieber won best male against Flo Rida, Pitbull, and Usher. I thought Usher would win.

When they announced Best Country Female I knew that Taylor Swift would win. Only days before she had swept away all the awards at the EMA's so it was no surprise there.

Carly Rae Jepson's performance was tolerable because I like her song "This Kiss" but the performance was not very good because she didn't do anything really. She just stood around singing and it was boring to watch.

Kelly Clarkson's medley performance was amazing, she has really come a long way in the last 10 years. Her voice has become so strong and I really enjoyed hearing her sing.

I was happy that Nicki Minaj won for best rap artist and I really loved her outfit, she looked so much like a barbie doll.

Kesha's performance was very good and so was No Doubt's.

I usually don't like when Taylor Swift performs but when she sang "I Knew You Were Trouble" from her new album "Red" I was completely shocked because it is such a pop song that sound like the current music, rather than the boring country songs she always makes.

I was excited for Nicki Minaj to perform but she sang one her new songs that I did not know, rather than any of her great songs from "Roman Reloaded" so I was a little disappointed. I still love her though and thought the song was very powerful with all the choir singers joining in at the end.

I like Pink's new song "Try" and I couldn't believe that she would reenact the music video for her live performance. I have never really seen anyone do that before. The music video is so different to begin with so it was crazy to see that, and she did a great job.

I am shocked that Carly Rae Jepson won the Best New Artist award instead of One Direction because One Direction are so huge right now.

I really liked Justin Bieber's acoustic performance on "As Long As You Love Me" with only the guitar. His voice is getting better and he is on the right track. When it broke into "Beauty and a Beat" it wasn't as special anymore and he was lip syncing the chorus.

I was excited to see Christina Aguilera perform because I love her new song "Your Body" but of course she did not sing it! She sang some other new songs from her new album but I wasn't familiar with them so I didn't really care about the performance.

Pitbull's performance was ok, his songs are always good anyways.

I really loved Jenny Mccarthy's outfit, she looked great.

When Justin Bieber won the award for Artist of the Year and dragged his mom up to the stage with him I didn't even realize it was his mom at first. She is so young that I thought she might be his new girlfriend or something! But it was nice of him to thank her up on stage in front of everyone like that. She must be very proud.

The closing number of the show, "Gangnam Style" by Psy was the icing on the cake. I really like that song and it always excites me to hear it and when they had M.C. Hammer come out and they mashed it up with "Too Legit to Quit" it was just so electrifying. And that Hammer can still dance like he's a young guy!

Overall, I enjoyed the show.

Review of Skyfall

I saw the new James Bond Film "Skyfall" yesterday and it was very good. The movie was being advertised as "The best Bond Film" of the series and even though I haven't watched all of them yet, I wouldn't say it's the best. They are all good films in their own way. None are the best, none are the worst.

I was never a big James Bond fan until Daniel Craig took over the role in 2006 with Casino Royale. It was my first Bond movie that I've ever seen. I thought Daniel Craig was very different from how Bond is usually portrayed, especially with his light features... it made me somewhat interested in the franchise.

Casino Royale was very good and when Quantum of Solace came out in 2008 I went to see it as well but it was a little disappointing because the story wasn't very great so the movie ended up not being so good.

When I went to see a movie in theaters a few months ago and saw the trailer for Skyfall I immediately knew I wanted to see the movie. The trailer was packed in action and looked to be very promising.

Skyfall was a very good movie that I thoroughly enjoyed and would even go see again. The movie began with a very Bond-esque fight which even transitioned to being on top of a moving train. I will not spoil the movie for anyone reading this but let's just say the fight on the train top ends badly and it is very upsetting. Then the main credits roled and Adele's "Skyfall" theme played through the opening and the song was very good. I had kept myself from listening to it or hearing it in the weeks before when it came out because I wanted it to be exciting and fresh for when I see the movie, and it was exactly that. I'm happy I didn't listen to it because it was more special hearing it for the first time in the movie's opening sequence. I don't normally like Adele but I like this song and it is such a perfect Bond songs that really sounds like that mysterious Bond sound. Adele did a very good job with the song and her voice fits it perfectly.

After the opening credits we see a Bond who has bounced back and he heads to MI6 to get down to business. As the story unfolds we learn of a villain who is hacking M and MI6 and doing dangerous things. Bond's job is to stop him and the rest of the movie goes along like that until the end when we lose someone very important to the whole Bond series. After everything, we are introduced to the characters who will be in the next movies and shown that "Bond will return."

I really can't wait until the next movie. I feel like these first 3 movies that Daniel Craig has been in have been laying out the grounds for this new James Bond that he has been working on and that hopefully in the next movie he will be good old James Bond again, without so much of the angst and emotional problems that this James Bond has been experiencing. Not that it has been a bad thing. It is good to see a different side of him but I think that he should be having sexy, dangerous fun and good times like the Bonds of the past.

Skyfall seemed to be missing in the lady department. There was a brief sex scene in the film but no strong romance or sexuality really so it felt a bit lacking in that area.

And the other thing that bothered me about the movie is that they killed off someone big... (I won't say who of course!) and it felt kind of sad and I worry about if the next movies will be the same but the ending of Skyfall tied any loose ends about that so I guess it will be ok.

Otherwise, the movie was a blast and I never even checked the time while I was watching the movie, that is how good it was... all 2 and a half hours seemed to fly by and I could have even watched more! I can't wait until the next one or even until this one comes to DVD.

Some fun parts that I enjoyed in the movie...
When the villain has captured James Bond he is practically coming on to him and it is so hilarious and unexpected, I couldn't stop laughing I was almost crying.
And of course I enjoyed the parts when Daniel Craig is not wearing his shirt..... the more scenes like that, the better! He is a very handsome man and I really enjoy seeing him on the big screen... the movies should have more parts with him wearing next to nothing!!!

JB splits with Selena!

It's officially over..... Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have split and I am not shocked, I was just waiting for this as soon as I heard about the relationship. How do you expect teenagers to stay in a meaningful relationship... it isn't realistic. They were cute together but oh well.

Christina Aguilera - Lotus

Christina Aguilera's new cd "Lotus" is set for release November 13th. I enjoyed a lot of songs from her last album but it was a total flop in the media so I wonder if this one will make an impact.

I love the cover, it is very pretty.
