Dora and the Lost City of Gold: Film Review

I have never seen Dora the Explorer and I had to laugh when a live-action film adaptation was announced – another animation jumping on the live-action bandwagon – but I have to put my hands up and admit Dora and the Lost City of Gold has been done really well and is the perfect adventure movie for young children.

Lady Gaga’s to star in Machete Kills

Lady Gaga announced today that she will be making her big screen acting debut in Machete Kills.

Gaga will play La Chameleon in the action exploitation flick, directed by Robert Rodriguez. The movie is the sequel to the 2010 film Machete, which stars Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriquez. Gaga isn’t the only newcomer to the cast. It is going to be epic- Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Zoe Saldana, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard and Vanessa Hudgens have signed on.

Robert announced Gaga’s role on Twitter, saying, “”I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”

Gaga soon followed in confirming the news on Twitter, writing, “”Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress in the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @ RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.”

It is thought that Gaga’s part will be fairly small, much like Lindsay Lohan’s part in the first film. I reckon she will be amazing! She is very theatrically minded so I know she will be able to act well, especially playing such a bad ass!

She has had cameo appearances in movies such as Katy Perry: Part of Me and The Muppets plus a TV appearance on Gossip Girl. This will be her first proper acting role though. I’m excited to see her part! I’m impressed at her work ethic. She has just a short break from her crazy tour schedule and in that time, she films a movie!! Doesn’t she ever want a break?! She also has a perfume release and is thought to have written material for a third album.

Machete Kills has only just started filming so no exact release date has been set. I would predict it to be around Easter 2013.
