    It is every teenager's dream to find fame and fortune and the lucky few, such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, have used it as a launchpad to a successful career. Justin Bieber found infamy through Youtube, which he then turned into a successful pop career with the guidance of Usher. Miley Cyrus meanwhile took her fame from the hit show Hannah Montana and used that spotlight to build herself into a successful pop star in her own right. Teenage success stories like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are not a new phenomenon, with teenage acts hitting the big time for years. However, these type of acts rarely seem to build on their success, and often disappear from the public eye or undergo a drastic change of direction, isolating the artist from what was previously their target audience. One of the main reasons for this is that their target audience has outgrown them. When you look at Justin Bieber's target audience for his music, they're generally young teens or pre-teens. Once they hit their late teens their musical tastes tend to change, and Bieber's music is not what they want to listen to. Another reason is that the artist themselves outgrow their musical style. Cheesy pop music is great when you're 16, but once Justin Bieber turns 20 will he still want to sing the same kind of songs? A prime example of this is Britney Spears, who started rebelling and singing rock songs rather than pop as she grew up. While Britney's career has remained relatively successful, other artists have struggled to maintain their success while changing their image. Macauley Culkin, star of the Home Alone movies, was very successful and had a huge fan base when starring in family movies, but soon outgrew these and has had limited success since. Hanson are another example of an act who have struggled to build any success since developing a more grown up image; their recent attempted comeback was less than successful, mainly because they appeared to have no target audience. Miley Cyrus has already begun to show her wild side and appears to be taking a similar career path to Britney Spears. Justin Bieber on the other hand is still making teen-friendly music, and will undoubtedly remain successful for the time being should he continue with this path. But what will happen when he hits 20? Will he become a rock star? Even a heavy metal act? Only time will tell, but history suggests that his teen-friendly style is unlikely to carry on forever.

    Horrible Bosses’ Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.       Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”…. and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.      With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back. Directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon, Identity Thief is produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), Bateman and Pamela Abdy (upcoming 47 Ronin). The comedy co-stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonestreet.     IDENTITY THIEF                                                                                             February 8 2013   Genre:      Comedy Cast:        Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, Eric Stonestreet   Story by: Jerry Eeten and Craig Mazin Screenplay by: Craig Mazin Directed by: Seth Gordon Produced by: Scott Stuber, Jason Bateman, Pamela Abdy Executive Producers: Peter Morgan, Dan Kolsrud   View Trailer

           A powerful story based on one family's survival of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, The Impossible stars Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor and Tom Holland and is directed by J.A. Bayona (THE ORPHANAGE).       Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.      Based on a true story, The Impossible is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, The Impossible is a journey to the core of the human heart.     Screenplay is by Sergio G. Sanchez (The Orphanage) with the story by Maria Belon. Producers are Belen Atienza, Alvaro Augustin, Enrique Lopez-Lavigne and Ghislan Barrois. - (c) Summit Entertainment   Watch Trailer   Film Clip

    THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER A sensitive teenager learns to navigate the soaring highs and perilous lows of adolescence in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a powerful and affecting coming‐of‐age story based on the wildly popular young adult novel by Stephen Chbosky. Starring Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), Emma Watson (the Harry Potter franchise) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Another Happy Day), The Perks of Being a Wallflower captures the complexities of growing up with uncommon grace, humor and compassion. It’s 1991 and academically precocious, socially awkward Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a wallflower, always watching from the sidelines, until a pair of charismatic seniors take him under their wing. Beautiful, free‐spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her fearless stepbrother, Patrick (Ezra Miller), shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, bacchanalian parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song. At the same time, his English teacher, Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd) introduces him to the world of literature, sparking his dreams of becoming a writer. But even as Charlie thrives in his new, more grown‐up world, the pain of his past—which includes, his best friend Michael’s recent suicide and the accidental death of a beloved aunt—lurks just below the surface. As his older friends plan to leave home for college, Charlie’s precarious equilibrium begins to crumble, and at the root of his sadness is a shocking revelation. Also starring Kate Walsh (“Private Practice,” “Grey’s Anatomy”), Dylan McDermott (“American Horror Story,” “The Practice”), Mae Whitman (“Parenthood,” Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Nina Dobrev (The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”), Erin Wilhelmi (The English Teacher), Johnny Simmons (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) Zane Holtz (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) and Joan Cusack (The Toy Story Franchise, High Fidelity, Arthur Christmas), The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a touching and often funny portrait of the joy and anguish involved in becoming an adult. The film’s producers are Lianne Halfon (Juno, Jeff Who Lives at Home, Young Adult), Russell Smith (Juno, Jeff Who Lives at Home, Young Adult) and John Malkovich (Juno). Original music is by Michael Brook (The Vow, The Fighter). Costume designer is David C. Robinson (Young Adult, Shame). Editors are Mary Jo Markey (Star Trek, Super 8). Production designer is Inbal Weinberg (Our Idiot Brother, Blue Valentine). Director of photography is Andrew Dunn (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Life as We Know It). James Powers (LOL, Mean Girls) is an executive producer. Music Supervisor is Alexandra Patsavas (The Twilight Saga, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “The OC”, “Gossip Girl”). Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller Screenplay by Stephen Chbosky based on his book Directed by Stephen Chbosky Produced by Lianne Halfon, Russell Smith and John Malkovich Running Time: 103 minutes Rated PG‐13 In Theaters September 21, 2012 (NY & LA) September 28, 2012 (Expanding)

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let everyone, that is interested, know about my Fundraiser coming up May 6th. I know it's in Denver and not L.A. but if anyone live in the area we would love for you to come. If you can't make it please consider donating. A little goes a long way in Uganda. This year all the proceeds go to The Kusasira Tuition Program in Seeta, Uganda. We all have heard about Kony and the brutal, violent, horrific man he is and what he and the LRA did to Uganda. The country is now in recovery. That is why I wanted to help the children receive an education. Their education is not free. They have to pay or they don't go to school. They have to wear uniforms and have the additional fees such as books, pencils, etc. Most of you know that their living conditions are so sad. An average family is 9-12 in a one or 2 room mud hut. In order for them to become self-reliant and be able to make changes they need an education. They are very proud people. That is why we want to help with a portion of the tuition.    For more information on the event and/or donating please see my web site at www.givehopeachance.com. Please e-mail me if you have any questions.  PEACE TO ALL OF YOU!! Haidyn

    Walt Disney has brought some of the finest movies geared towards families throughout the years. Films the entire family can enjoy together without any fear of objectionable material popping up. Many of these films are personal favs mostly seen on video or DVD. Here is a list of ten of my all time fav Disney classics.Song of the South (1946)Adapted from the series of Uncle Remus tales by Joel Chandler Harris. The film is both live-action and animation. Amazingly this film has never been re-released since the 1980s, and continues to spark heated debate as to it’s' "appropriateness" for the 21st century, the film depicted America in a much different time.

  • Walt Disney has brought some of the finest movies geared towards families throughout the years. Films the entire family can enjoy together without any fear of objectionable material popping up. Many of these films are personal favs mostly seen on video or DVD. Here is a list of ten of my all time fav Disney classics.Song of the South (1946)Adapted from the series of Uncle Remus tales by Joel Chandler Harris. The film is both live-action and animation. Amazingly this film has never been re-released since the 1980s, and continues to spark heated debate as to it’s' "appropriateness" for the 21st century, the film depicted America in a much different time.
