I can’t believe Disney would ever allow such substandard merchandise [High School Musical]

Posted in High School Musical, North Americana, WTF? on December 1, 2008 by jetsamjr

Wow, this Zefron/Corbin Bleu hybrid of a kid does not look happy to be adorned in this ridiculous High School Musical costume (his expression indicates either unhappiness or flatulence/stupidity):

High School Musical

To be fair, I don’t blame him.


Zac Efron hates screaming fans [High School Musical]

High School Musical

but who can blame him, really?

Zac, his fake girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens and their High School Musical 3 co-star Ashley Tisdale have been accused of being ungrateful, after they reportedly dumped gifts given to them by fans at the film’s Sydney premiere on Monday.

The trio were all allegedly fighting with each other on the day of the premiere anyway, so it’s no surprise they weren’t in the mood to accept mountains of teddy bears and flowers. But seriously: what are they supposed to do with all that junk? Fly it back to California and put it on a special shelf in their bedrooms?

Unsurprising HSM3 spoilers [High School Musical]

Posted in High School Musical, movies, North Americana, spoilerama on October 19, 2008 by jetsamjr

Variety has posted its first (mostly positive) review of High School Musical 3, and it reveals some very minor and completely unsurprisingly spoilers about the movie:

  • Zac Efron is the star. Gee, didn’t see that one coming
  • Troy and Gabrielle’s relationship is a snooze
  • Chad is a douche who expects Troy to do whatever he says and gets pissy when he doesn’t (for real, that has been Chad’s only storyline in every single High School Musical film to date; no wonder Corbin Bleu always looks so pissed off at media events)
  • Sharpei a) is still a wonderful bitchy turd to everyone, especially her super-gay twin brother, and b) gets an “extravagant” musical number
  • Lucas Grabeel is “the most talented of the bunch”
  • The script sucks

But I can’t wait to see it!

Scenes from a high school [High School Musical]

Posted in High School Musical, neat!, North Americana on August 18, 2008 by jetsamjr

I have no idea what Zac Efron is doing in this High School Musical 3 still that’s lifted from the clip for the soundtrack’s first single. Trying out a new hair product? Hopefully all will become clear when the movie is released in October (unless you live in a shitty backwater like Australia, where the movie is being released a whole month after it hits US cinemas – dumb!).

There’s a new behind-the-scenes look at film at Yahoo! Movies, which reveals that the super-flamboyant drama teacher beloved by HSM fans (ie, me) is in the third film.

Below: Zac flexes his guns.

Whoever made these clearly didn’t pass high-school art class [High School Musical]

The first batch of High School Musical 3 posters have popped up, and… they kind of suck. And by “kind of” I mean “I could make better posters than this on my crappy old Dell with a years-old version of Photoshop Elements”:

Honestly. What is this?

This one is mildly better:

Just Jared has the full, boring set.

Even tweens aren’t stupid enough to watch [High School Musical]

Posted in High School Musical, news, North Americana on July 23, 2008 by jetsamjr

That crappy reality show which attempted to shamelessly cash in on the success of High School Musical? It’s bombed, proving that rabid tweens won’t flock to anything unless it has Zac Efron in it. The prospects aren’t looking so good for HSM4

Zac Efron shows off his guns in first HSM3 trailer [High School Musical]

(Um, whatever Zac Efron is doing in the gym is clearly working. When do the tickets to the gun show go on sale?)

Judging by its fabulously cheesy new trailer, High School Musical 3: Senior Year will offer the high standard of crap that fans have come to expect from the franchise: over-produced songs! Hudgens’ simpering looks! Tisdales’s snappy one-liners! I can’t wait!
