‘The Bronze Horseman:’ The Dream Cast We’re Rooting For

‘The Bronze Horseman:’ The Dream Cast We’re Rooting ForThe Bronze Horseman is a novel by Paullina Simons that I devoured around last Christmas. As a History major, I have a really odd soft spot for the Soviets and their history with us. I can’t really explain it, but if you get it, or at least like romance novels, then give this book a chance. It follows the story of Tatiana Metanova and opens on the day Russia declares war on Germany after an invasion. She meets a Russian soldier named Alexander and their story blooms from there. It’s captivating and just an all around amazing story. And this past October, Simons announced that the novel has a confirmed movie deal. And this book has a very special place in my heart and here are just a few people I hope may be included among the cast.

  1. Chloë Grace Moretz as Tatiana

Chloë has gotten very popular lately having been picked as the lead in The Fifth Wave movie adaption. I feel like she’d be a great Tatiana because she’s young and really fits the description of the young Russian girl.

  1. Henry Cavill as Alexander

The Internet has been vying for Henry Cavill to play Alexander so hard and for so long now, I’m honestly scared to suggest anyone else.

  1. Nina Dobrev as Dasha

Dasha is Tatiana’s older sister and I feel like Nina is such a beautiful and great actress that she could convey the sultry and sometimes kind-of-bitchy Dasha very well. There is a chance she’s much too tan to play the part of a Russian girl, but I’m in love with Nina and just want her to be in everything.

  1. Ed Westwick as Dimitri

Dimitri is the friend of Alexander and shows some interest in Tatiana. However, there’s something about him Tatiana doesn’t like. I think Ed Westwick would be able to give Dimitri his untrustworthy air.

These are just a few suggestions of some of the people I’d like to envision playing the roles of some of my favorite characters. I know casting is a hard and difficult process and I think all fans will understand if our top picks don’t get cast. Let’s all just be thankful that such a wonderful novel is getting turned into a movie that we can share and enjoy with everyone.

Once upon a time, there was a popular cable channel that essentially put the music video trend on the pop-culture map, featuring videos like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Kriss Kross’s “Jump,”  and Britney’s “Oops, I Did It Again!” Although segments like MTV Jams were a huge hit, ultimately MTV chose to go in a different direction, replacing music videos with reality shows like Sixteen and Pregnant and Jersey Shore.

Now, MTV has gotten back into the groove of what brought it fame with the series entitled, Supervideo. The video series is turning out to be a variety of incredibly expensive productions for popular music artists, starring big-name, young stars. For example, “Cups” singer, Anna Kendrick and Kickass’s Chloe Moretz have played leading roles in music videos for LCD Soundsystem and Best Coast.

It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten quality music videos with narrative and creative visuals. Here are some videos to check out.

That book of hers is being turned into a movie and receiving much deserved attention. Lesser talked about right now is the fact that one of Flynn’s other books, Dark Places, is also being turned into a movie. Continue reading

It’s not unusual to hear a horror story about a prom going bad. Where your date never shows up and you have to go stag or some girl you hate wears the same dress as you. There have been stories of one of your friends, or yourself, getting way too drunk and just before you get kicked out by the principal, you end up telling your crush (who’s out of your league) how you feel about them. Yes, these stories have happened. We’ve lived it, we’ve also seen it in countless ‘80s flicks. But to be completely honest, there is only one prom story that will stand as the best and most unique of all time.

If you don’t know the story behind Carrie already (originally a book by Stephen King), you’re either too young to be reading this site or just crawled out from under a rock after thirty years, but I’ll give you the quick rundown regardless. Carrie is horrendously bullied high school girl who has a religiously obsessed psycho mom. She discovers she has the power to move things with her mind and very bad stuff happens after a bucket of blood is dumped on her at prom. That right there is pretty much the whole story and don’t yell at me about spoilers, this is common knowledge people and all of it is displayed prominently in the trailer below Continue reading
