New Song: “We Made You” Eminem

“We Made You” is the first single released of Eminem’s sixth studio album, Relapse. The song features vocalist Charmagne Tripp, who is impersonating Jessica Simpson. With this track Eminem reverts back to his old style of catchy beats and funny, socially relevant lyrics. Of course, it wouldn’t be Eminem if he didn’t make fun of at least five people in his song. Ripping on Bret Michaels, Amy Winehouse and Jessica Simpson among others, Eminem’s lyrics are ridiculous and offensive.

I personally think the video is a little bit too much, but maybe it is just me. All the same, I enjoy this song and thought Charmagne Tripp’s chorus was very well done. Let us know if you know any more about her.

Our very own preview

As many of you may know, Recess in Real Life began as a class project last January for our public relations class. Today we are presenting to our class to tell them why our readers enjoy our blog and why we should continue to post movie and music reviews. We decided to get a little creative, and spent this weekend making our own “preview”. So sorry for the lack of new posts in the last two days, but we hope you will enjoy our movie and keep coming back to our blog. Thanks!

Movie Review: State of Play

 State of Play,” directed by Kevin MacDonald (“The Last King of Scotland”) is the story of a group of investigative reporters from the fictional Washington Globe, trying to solve the murder of a prominent Congressman’s aide. The movie is an adaptation of a BBC miniseries of the same title. The film stars Russell Crowe as old fashioned journalist Cal McAffery, in charge of uncovering a web of lies in this mysterious death. Rachel McAdams is Della Frye, a blogger and web journalist who is paired with Crowe to help investigate the murder. Ben Affleck stars as Congressman Stephen Collins, an up and coming politician seemingly blindsided by situations beyond his control.

State of Play is a political/crime thriller/drama that is well composed and acted. The storyline is clever, with a few twists, turns and downright surprises. Crowe, Affleck and McAdams put on solid performances, and the movie is well directed. I was not expecting much from this movie, but was pleasantly surprised. Seeing as there are few quality movies in theaters, “State of Play” is a safe bet to get your money’s worth.
