My hubby and I ran into Zac and Vanessa in the Hawaiian Airlines First Class lounge in Waikiki. They both look even more beautiful in person. Anyway – Zac is obsessed with Back to the Future and says that he would love to play Marty McFly. BTF filmmaker Bob Gale recently said in an interview that he did not want to make a remake or another sequel. In previous interviews, he stated that there was a time they considered a fourth but with Michael J Fox’s health, they wouldn’t consider it. I think a remake is a horrible idea – the movie is a classic. But a fourth would be a great idea. Zac could play Marty’s son – which would work into the theme of the movie since we know Marty has kids with Jennifer. At the end of the first film, Doc comes back and warns Marty about his kids. The producers could make Marty more Doc – like and use his illness as an effect of the time travel – warning Marty Jr. of the consequences of messing with the space time continuum. Any thoughts?
Wow. Interesting finale. First – I was livid that they did a Paso Doble Faceoff – only because in my book I have the final three do a Paso Doble Pow -Wow – and I wrote that scene 3 years ago -though I know people will think I copied this final show.
Anyway – first thing that bothered me – as typical in the finale – each couple is coached by the judge – but prior to this season Len was always the one to coach. So Gilles gets Len, Melissa gets Carrie-Ann, and Shawn gets Bruno. How messed up is that? Len is the only judge who has a background in ballroom – fine use Bruno and Carrie-Ann for the freestyle but not for ballroom. So Gilles had a complete unfair advantage. My favorite part was Carrie-Ann showing Melissa how to do the Paso – what a joke – Carrie-Ann was showing her steps that I learned in a group paso class when I’d been dancing for a day. That’s not going to help Melissa at all
When they actually did the Paso – Gilles was amazing – PERFECT posture, attitude, fierceness. Melissa did way better than I expected since she hadn’t done the dance but I saw some balletic arms which were too soft for Paso. Shawn did the steps alright but lacked the right attitude for me. Round one Gilles.
OK – on to the freestyle – Shawn and Mark – nice and bouncy, worked to her strength, and Mark is brilliant.
Melissa – they were WAY to harsh on her – if Gilles acts, and Shawn does gymnastics, why can’t Melissa use so cheer steps. But Tony should have put in more ballroom esque moves to appease Len. It kinda looked like my beloved Kitty Carter choreographed it. Go DCC!
Gilles – I love flashdance and have been know to curl up in a ball and spin on the floor so I may be biased. Love the routine but for once, and only once, I will agree with Carrie-Ann. The dance showed off Cheryl and not Gilles which isn’t fair at all because Cheryl is the pro and Gilles already has an unfair advantage because the male stars have an easier time than the girls. The female pros can just dance around the male stars but the female stars have to dance their hearts out.
I think it will come down to Gilles and Melissa. I want Melissa to win but I think Cheryl did a better job with Gilles but this isn’t about the pros – its about the stars.
