Surf’s Up! 164 Million votes Cast For Teen Choice 2014!

TEEN CHOICE 2014: Donald Sutherland onstage at the historic Shrine Auditorium at TEEN CHOICE 2014, airing LIVE Sunday, Aug. 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX at the historic Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, CA.  CR: Phil McCarten/FOX

America’s teens cast 164 million votes for this Teen Choice 2014 – which may have been the second biggest surprise of the evening (The Other Woman for Teen Choice Comedy Movie? Really?), or maybe third biggest (Choice Movie Villain Donald Sutherland, above, bearing gifts from Panem!). Most of the rest of the evening was pretty much expected: Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries dominated the TV awards; Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire dominated movies.

Also as usual, the Teen Choice Award show was less boring than most other award shows – except for the one with the Green Slime – and crammed in more awards than any two other awards shows. For a complete list of winners, follow the jump.

Hotel Transylvania: Familiar Elements; Fun Twists!

DVD REVIEW: The Princess Protection Program: Royal BFF Extended Edition

Princess Protection Program

There honestly isn’t much to say about the Disney Channel’s latest movie The Princess Protection Program.  It’s a competent and cute little paint by the numbers affair staring Disney’s newest “stars” Selena Gomez as “Tom Boy” Carter Mason who is forced to be friends with Princess Rosalinda / Rosie Gonzales played by Demi Lovato who was in the Disney film Camp Rock and appeared in the Jonas Brother’s concert film. Rosalinda’s Kingdom is taken over by an evil General which forces her to go into hiding.

Carter’s dad happens to be an operative for a secret organization called the Princess Protection Program whose job it is to hide and protect Princess’ throughout the world. So of course we get to see the Princess trying to adjust to being a normal American Teenager while Carter gets jealous at the attention her dad shows Rosie.  My issue with the movie is that Selena and Demi look too much alike, they could practically pass for twins and the movie feels like it was produced in a “factory.”  There’s no there, there. But it’s a perfectly harmless time waster and the two leads are likeable enough.
