Rebel Wilson: Gratitude for a Bountiful 2019

2019 is a bountiful year for Rebel Wilson because of the number of projects that were given to her. One of the highlights of her career is her first lead role in the movie “Isn’t It Romantic.”

The story of the film centers on the life of Natalie, a hopeless romantic who will be transported magically in an unknown world that is filled with rom-com clichés.

Rebel Wilson said that she shares a lot of similarities with the character, and it will be very easy for her to portray the life of the protagonist. The director of the film, Todd Strauss-Schulson, said that Rebel Wilson managed to give justice to the character, and he enjoyed watching the film.

The musical will be shown in November 2019, and the Australian actress is already doing a lot of practice to perfect her performance. Aside from “Isn’t It Romantic” and “Cats,” Rebel Wilson will also be starring in two film remakes – one would be the hugely popular film entitled “Private Benjamin” and the other would be the comedy show entitled “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.”

The actress was also chosen to become a part of the cast for “The Social Life,” a movie starring Amanda Seyfried. Rebel Wilson was also given the role as Fraulein Rahm in Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit,” a dark comedy-drama film.

Rebel Wilson’s Isn’t it Romantic

Introduction

Isn’t it romantic is an anti-rom-com movie, currently on Netflix, featuring Rebel Wilson, an Australian born actress, writer, and producer. She is known as Natalie in the movie and acts alongside Jennifer Saunders who casts as her mother.

The thirty-eight-year-old graduate from the Australian Theatre for Young People started her career by appearing as Toula on a comedy series known as Pizza and a sketch comedy series The Wedge. Five years later she won the Tropfest best actress award for the role she played in Bargain and hence appeared in City Homicide as a guest.

Isn’t it romantic and the normal romance comedy movies

The movie deviates from the normal rom-com movies and by large chooses not to blend with their characteristics. With the normal expectations that Wilson would fall for her best friend Devine, Wilson Rebel does not seem to see that he is the best man for her.

She then falls for a doctor who she wakes up to in a hospital. It is also the norm of rom-com movies that the leads have to be unattainably hot with the audience and everyone, in particular, being able to see their attraction to each other before they do.

This is not the case in this movie since the doctor and Rebel’s attraction and falling in love is in a way spontaneous. Save for the hospital scene, not every scene in the movie is bright and colorful as would be expected.

It is however evident that the movie does not fully separate itself from the mother genre as Wilson’s life later becomes a rom-com complete with the romantic comedy tropes after she falls in love with the hot doctor.

Why Wilson is the perfect role for the cast

Wilson is able to derive humor from social awkwardness. Her ability to identify her shortcomings and brush them off in a humorous way makes her even better. This helps her embody her character which is by large mostly bewildered.

Background music and the scenes

The background music perfectly blends with the scenes. For instance, the music that accompanies the hospital scene is perfectly placed, the romantic type of music coming from Vanessa Carlton. Other tracks are filled with Donna Lewis, Six Pence None the Richer as well as Annie Lenox.

Credits

It is amazing how the movie is able to make fun of the overused statements in rom-com movies both cheekily and naughtily. With the satire in it, it is able to ignite interest even from the non-rom-com movie lovers as well.

Wilson is nevertheless a perfect cast. The movie is absorbing and lovely with the ability to capture an audience in its one hour and thirty-nine minutes of cast.

The Chainsmokers: Getting Where They Are With Hard Work

When Alex Pall and Andrew “Drew” Taggart were introduced in 2012, they hit it off immediately and wasted little time in forming the Chainsmokers, a DJ/Producer two-person band. Mutual friend of Pall and Taggart, Adam Alpert, knew both men wanted to be DJs. Pall was in New York actively looking for a new partner, and Taggart was in Maine working at a museum. When they met and formed the band, both men quit their day jobs, Taggart moved to New York, and the Chainsmokers officially began. After their live debut in September of 2014, the Chainsmokers have been releasing music and playing live shows almost non-stop.

The Chainsmokers have released several charting EPs, and one full-length album that hit #1 on both the Dance/Electronic and Top 200 Charts at Billboard. They also put out many singles, which can be downloaded for free from their website. Their most recent release, put out in July, is the single “Side Effects”, a collaboration with Emily Warren. Warren, the singer on the track, is a good friend and frequent collaborator of the duo. Pall and Taggart have spoken about how they have a tremendous rapport with Warren, and how they can come up with a song idea with her very quickly. Warren performed the song live with the Chainsmokers for the first time in Atlanta, GA.

“Side Effects” is another step in the Chainsmokers’ evolution as musicians. Though they are a dance/electronic duo, Pall and Taggart both enjoy many other forms of music and try to integrate them into their sound as much as possible. For “Side Effects” they took some influence from disco and funk, making an upbeat song about loneliness and bad decisions made as a result of said loneliness. This sound is in contrast to their other recent releases, most of which have been slower and darker. The Chainsmokers write their music based on their feelings and the happenings in their life, making their music more personal than most dance musicians. When in winter, they tend to be more melancholy, and this last year was no different.
