The Approval Matrix: Week of December 3, 2007

Heather Mills

Vegan Heather Mills is reportedly the new spokesperson for Viva! (Vegetarians International Voice for Animals). Mills posed for photos in London to launch the group's environmental campaign to persuade the public that they can reduce global warming by reducing amount of meat, dairy and other animal products they eat. According to one ad in the campaign, livestock are the second biggest cause of greenhouse gases and the major cause of rainforest clearance.

Another ad plays on Heather's own disability with the headline "You haven't got a leg to stand on!" targeting people and organizations who call themselves environmentalists but still eat animal products.

Creepy CGI in "Beowulf"

Plot Summary: The warrior Beowulf must fight and defeat the monster Grendel who is terrorizing towns, and later, Grendel's mother, who begins killing out of revenge.


Subway Sellout

The story had all the makings of a Hollywood romantic comedy from the get-go [he created a website to locate "the girl of his dreams" after seeing her on the subway], so it's not surprising that Patrick Moberg is shopping around the rights to his real-life subway sweetheart story.

It is, however, just a little disheartening that everything really is a commodity. Despite what he declared on his site after finding "the girl of his dreams" (telling us voyeurs we'll have to write our own ending to their story as they figured things out in private), he is leaving the spotlight on himself and his lady Camille for as long as it'll shine.

Park Slope
iPhone Snatch

A violent attempt to grab a woman’s iPhone ended when the cops fortuitously passed by and arrested the attacker at midnight, Sept. 21.

Perhaps inspired by jealousy for the $600 superphone, the mugger grabbed the woman from behind at the corner of Bridge and Front streets. He attempted to choke her, and also grabbed her face, injuring her lip.

She understandably wouldn’t let go of the must-have mobile device, and just then the cops happened to come by on patrol.

The officers restrained the 22-year-old man and put him into custody. (Brooklyn Paper)

9 to 5 on Broadway

According to an interview in The LA Daily News, the upcoming Dolly Parton musical 9 to 5 is headed for Broadway next fall.

Parton, who starred in the hit 1980 office comedy on which 9 to 5 is based, will pen the musical's score.While no casting decisions have been made, 9 to 5 would most likely feature a cast of around 25; ... a workshop will precede the Broadway run.

Parton, who played Doralee Rhodes in the film (and whose title song was nominated for an Oscar), does not intend to star in the show. (Broadway World)

"Cloverfield" Hype

lalex81 posted on Jo Blo, "When I mentioned that J.J.Abrams name attached doesn't say anything about the quality of the movie it's because he name is ONLY attached.
He's NOT directing
He's NOT writing
Just producing.
Even if you think MI3 is a masterpiece, it says nothing about how this movie might turn out.
You have to take this movie by what it is, a risky, handheld movie, of a "monster in NY", done by a debutant director. That's all we really know about the project."
