Pretty Little Liars Cast Talks Fave Music

Nov 11, 2010

Kidzworld is on the set of TV’s Pretty Little Liars to round up the cast and grill ’em on new season secrets. The show runners won’t let us spill what we learned until closer to the airdate – January 3 on ABC Family – but we did get some really fun responses to a musical question that we can share now!


Kidzworld: What are you into right now in music?
Lucy Hale (Aria): I’m into Glee. We need to do a musical episode! I want to do a musical!


Brant Daugherty (Noel): Anything that I can’t see the dollar signs on. If I can tell you made it just to sell another record or get that single on the radio, I’m probably not going to be into it. Lately I’ve been into Mumford and Sons a lot. I like everything from Beethoven to Frank Sinatra, things on the Top 40. My ipod is the most random jumble of stuff. I’m learning the guitar thanks to the show as well. I can at least blend if we do a musical episode.


Brendan Robinson (Lucas): I love Vampire Weekend. I love their sound. It’s so different. That song Cousins that they do, it’s so interesting. I like bands that are interesting, kind of off the beaten path. I like some indie rock stuff. I love U2, I love 30 Seconds to Mars, their latest album. I sing and went to a performing arts high school, like a lame version of Fame, only 80 kids there and I took tap dancing for five years because we didn’t have P.E.


Shay Mitchell (Emily): Anything and everything. I love Italian music; Frank Sinatra when I’m cooking pasta or I’ll do soundtracks. I love the Eat, Pray, Love soundtrack or Vicky Christina Barcelona. That Spanish music is amazing. I’m always trying out different things. The girls on the show are always listening to something and will be like, “Hey, check this out.” Then I find a new band that I love but it varies according to my mood. But definitely something upbeat in the morning to get me going!


Ashley Benson (Hanna): Everything except country. I’m into Pink Martini right now. I listen to them on weekends when I cook and play with my dog and have friends over. I also like Lady Gaga and Rihanna and The Pierces; different kinds of music but I can’t do country.


Ian Harding (Ezra): I dabble in everything. I’m a really big fan of folk music but I’m going through this phase of this composer John Adams. He did the music for this movie I Am Love and it’s ridiculous when you listen to it. You’re put into another universe. Then I’ll turn around and have some really offensive hip-hop on. That’s great for the gym, or angry death metal that you can’t get away from because you are running and it’s strapped to you. I’m across the board depending on my mood.


Keegan Allen (Toby): Love Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, Radiohead is incredible. Neil Young, Elton John, John Lennon, the Beatles. Love all that. I play piano and just picked up guitar last year. I’m teaching myself but it’s an incredibly long process. I taught myself piano but when you move to guitar it’s like whoa! Some people I’ve met are sooo good but I’m learning and I really am mutilating my fingers.


Troian Bellisario (Spencer): My staples of all time are Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes and Elliott Smith and Regina Spektor is always somewhere on my computer or record player but recently I can’t stop listening to the new Arcade Fire album. I went to their show and it was sooo good live. The most amazing visualizations and sounds.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
