Tonight’s TV Spotlight Guessing Game…Saturday, April 4, 2009

April 4, 2009 by  

Saturday is theme night here in the GMMR spotlight. Each week I try to pick movies or shows that have something in common. Today’s theme is perhaps a little less obvious, or maybe now. Can you figure out the theme using each of the movies below?

    Does the theme have anything to do with The OC? Am I close? I know that Adam brody and Cam Gigandet were both on that show.

    I was going to guess something to do with vampires (Kristen Stewart, Gerard Butler, Kate Beckinsale), but I’m nearly positive you haven’t had a recent vampire-related accomplishment.

    Are these movies all adapted from books in some way? Books on your Kindle?

    DIdn’t you just finish Twilight?

    I got it! Kerry you are right, they are all vampire related. I thought it was something to do with The OC at first too, JPP.

    Van Helsing is a vampire movie.
    In the Land of Women stars Kristen Stewart who played Bella in Twilight
    Untraceable stars Billy Burke who played Bella’s father Charlie in Twilight
    Never Back Down has Can Gigandet who played James in Twilight
    The last one I was stuck on all morning but I got it. PS I Love You starts James Marsters who played Spike (a vampire) on Buffy.

    As TheRealMrsCullen mentioned, you just finished reading Twilight.

    Am I right?

    Kerry and Molly, that’s got to be it. I have to admit, I’m into the current “vampire craze.” Not only did I read the Twilight books, but I read the Sookie Stackhouse novels that True Blood is based off of (even though I haven’t seen True Blood yet, b/c I only have basic cable).

    (Oh, and I am watching Braveheart tonight….and is it sad that I always think of Pacey Witter’s speech for the talent portion at the beauty pageant where Joey sings “On My Own”?)

    Possibly Kath is all caught up on Buffy, which is a vampire show?
