I saw Silver Linings Playbook yesterday and enjoyed it as much as Looper and Argo, my two prior favorite movies of 2012.
Lone critic for the Observer disagrees, calling out the title (based on a book), Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and the director (David O. Russell, The Fighter, I Heart Huckabees).
I draw the line at the word “overrated” being used anywhere near the vicinity of Jennifer Lawrence, whose Oscar-nominated performance in Winter’s Bone speaks for itself.
“The ridiculously titled Silver Linings Playbook, not in the same league as The Fighter, doesn’t do for Bradley Cooper what that movie did for Mark Wahlberg.” Read more…
Pete Doherty is opening up about his relationship with Amy Winehouse, telling an interviewer in Paris that they were in love (and late husband Blake Fielder wasn’t the only one she beat the crap out of).
“This is difficult for me to admit. But, yes, it’s true. Amy and I were lovers. I loved her then and, well, I still do today. But towards the end, as only lovers can, she became quite mean and cruel to me.”
“She didn’t suffer fools…and believe me, she had a mean right hook,” the Libertines frontman told the Daily Mail.
Modern-day Kurt and Courtney/Sid and Nancy were photographed together the most in 2008, and Pete recalls a meeting in 2010, so I’m setting a 2008-2010 timeline of on and off friendship/romance. Read more…

The award was handed out to 60,000 people this year, mostly to non-famous community leaders, though it can be bestowed up those who bring “credit to Canada” due to their achievements abroad.
I’m sure he’s involved in some kind of charity, and he is the most recognizable Canadian, though not the sexiest (Gosling, Reynolds, Cuthbert, Kirshner), in existence, so I guess he deserves it?
Gaga Tweeted that she was wandering around naked in the kitchen when she spotted them on the security camera.

Larry Hagman, best known for his work as Tony Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie and J.R. Ewing on Dallas (which was just brought back by TNT in June of this year), passed away at a Texas hospital surrounded by family and friends yesterday after a 13-month battle with throat cancer.
“Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew,” Hagman’s television wife Linda Gray, who convinced him to eat vegan as a health precaution, told People. “He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the fullest.”
Warner Brothers released their own statement explaining that the “sad news will be incorporated into the storyline” as Dallas progresses.

I won’t give too much away, but the second movie has the potential to be even better than the first. The third, I’m not so sure how they’ll film, but that’s not happening until 2014 (and 15).
“This is the last big show for three years or so,” he said. “I don’t want to stop.”
Oh but I do want you to stop, just like I want Green Day and The Killers to. Unlike those two bands, I NEVER liked Coldplay and am thrilled to hear that they may be taking a three-year break.
You have to assume that no more “big shows” means no more CDs period, because they wouldn’t make an album and not tour for it. Right? Read more…
Johnny Depp will step back into the iconic role of Edward Scissorhands, the 1990 cult favorite co-starring Winona Ryder (and the sixth movie of Depp’s career).
There’s just one catch, he’ll be playing Edward in cartoon form, for 20 seconds.
Seth MacFarlane has enlisted Depp to voice the character, who happens to be employed as a night nurse, on Family Guy. Joke:
“Okay now I’m an excellent night nurse so you two get some much deserved sleep and don’t worry about a thing, I will taking such loving care of this wonderful little gift, and when you wake well-rested up, your precious little baby will be smiling as bright as the sun… it’s dead.”

I really didn’t want to talk about this because it was released two weeks ago and there’s nothing I can say about it that everyone else didn’t already but, since it’s November twentyfoodth, I give you a song that is not close to my heart at all, “It’s Thanksgiving” by Nicole Westbrook.
She’s the new Rebecca Black, her microphone is a turkey leg and her song goes like this, “December was Christmas. January was New Year. April was Easter. And the 4th of July, but now it’s Thanksgiving. Oh oh oh it’s Thanksgiving. We we we we are gonna have a good time.”
Today we honor the day Pilgrims unsuccessfully tried to poison the last remaining American Indians…
