Watch My "Inkheart" Movie Review 
Once upon a time, many moons ago, author Cornelia Funke wrote her beloved best-selling book Inkheart with actor Brendan Fraser in mind. Funke pictured the character Mo with Fraser’s face and voice.

Almost six years later, the film version of the book arrives in theaters bearing Fraser’s marquee name.

But the question remains, is "Inkheart" worth your money? Or will fans of the book the only ones to love the film?

Before you watch my movie review, let me gently remind you to watch my "Inkheart" interviews with:

BRENDAN FRASER (Mo) AND ELIZA HOPE BENNET (Meggie)

PAUL BETTANY (Dustfinger)

DIRECTOR IAIN SOFTLEY

Now on to my review!

Will Dakota Fanning be in "Twilight" Sequel "New Moon?" What About Vanessa Hudgens? 


Rumor has it, or at least according to Extra, that former child-wonder (She's now 14) Dakota Fanning may have been offered the role of Jane, the Volturi vampire in the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon."

This is great news if it's true!

I love Dakota Fanning, and I believe her acting prowess will benefit "New Moon' greatly! And I can truly see her as Jane, one of the most powerful vampires and an enemy of the lovebirds, Bella and Edward!

Dakota as an evil villain? Rock On!




Also in "New Moon" news, Vanessa Hudgens is supposed to have auditioned for the role of one of the werewolves!

Huh? Vanessa still auditions even with her "High School Musical" cred? I guess to prove to hiring studios she can act, and not just sing and dance and look pretty...

Reportedly, Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, told MTV at a Golden Globes afterparty that Hudgens has actually auditioned for the role.

Did Ashley mean to spill the beans? And is this story really true? Stay tuned, we'll go investigate now :wink
