‘Avatar,’ What Kristen Stewart Wants And Miles Davis Around The Blogosphere

–I’m a big Miles Davis fan. Almost as much as I am a “Star Wars” fan. And so I’m kicking myself for not remembering that we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the jazz trumpeter’s landmark album, “Kind of Blue,” before Slate did. Regardless, the online publication has put together a nice little list which looks at five moments in screen history when music from “Kind of Blue” is used to enhance the narrative in some way. Great stuff, Slate. (Slate)

— Blue must be a running theme today. Inspired by today’s “Avatar” trailer, Movieline writer Kyle Buchanan put forth the bold statement that blue is the color of geek love. What is he basing that crazy theory on? Well, you’ll have to read the feature. I’ll give you one piece of the puzzle though: David Cross on “Arrested Development.” Intrigued? Then read! (Movieline)

— Thanks to MTV Movies Blog reader and Twitter follower @BrookeLockart for this one. Some dude — yes, it’s a guy — started up a blog called Kristen Stewart Wants IT. There’s no single post I want to point out, I just like the writing on the site, and the writer’s penchant for making gigantic tangential leaps before getting to the topic of “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart wanting IT. Note that I’m not really sure what “IT” means. The writer isn’t either. I think this quote from the blog sums it up best: “I have yet to fully understand what the ’IT’ is she wants because honestly I don’t want anything in life as much as she wants ’IT.'” Get it? Neither do I. But it’s hella funny, right? (Kristen Stewart Wants IT)

— What’s a day without giving a little love to one of my favorite film blogs out there, Spout Blog? Chris Campbell, treasured MTV contributor, put together a list of 10 movies that “’Avatar’ unfortunately resembles.” I’m still very much looking forward to James Cameron’s 3-D sci-fi adventure, but it’s hard to ignore the similarities in those side-by-side images. Remember of course that trailers are often misleading; I thought “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” looked like a disaster in the trailers and clips, but I had a blast seeing it in the theater. I know I’m in the minority there, but the point that trailers don’t always tell the full (or even the right) story is a valid one. (Spout Blog)
