Kellan Lutz and My Newest Level of Celebrity Crushing!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

kellan-lutz11Most, if not all, of us have celebrity crushes.  Whether they’re just “oh yeah what a hottie” or “I’m hiding in the bushes taking pics, I’ll call you back” level crushes depends on your sanity of course.  I’ve never been one for bushes (too many bugs and other creepy crawlies) but I have found a new level for myself.  I call it the “I hate every movie I’ve seen you in but all that’s forgiven when you smile” level.  This new level of celebrity crush is in use for Kellan Lutz.  He’s best known for his role in the Twilight Saga (I think I lost a little piece of my soul just typing that), but I first saw him in that one episode of Heroes that played out an alternate future with the villain as president.

91Y2ZoWPl3L._AA1500_Last night I was scrolling through Netflix when I came across a movie called Arena.  I’m not gonna lie, it looks like the basic action flick when you see the movie poster and that’s pretty much what it is.  It’s the gladiator scenario set in modern times so of course the fights are viewed over the Internet instead of in an actual arena.  Samuel L. Jackson stars as the ringleader villain-in-charge of the whole operation who kidnaps men that show potential for the fights.  Like every gladiator-esque movie goes, he’s kidnapped the wrong person when Kellan Lutz’s character gets dragged into the ring.

vlcsnap-2011-12-12-20h58m22s69I can’t say I was captivated by the story or anything like that.  If I’m being honest I only kept watching because they continued to have scenes where our protagonist was missing a shirt. (Yum!) While I watched though I came up with a few different drinking game rules.  If you’re already enjoying the movie maybe you won’t need them, but if you’re not, here they are:

Drink (responsibly!)every time:

  •  Kellan Lutz is shirtless
  • He gets hit with a taser
  • A head gets cut off
  • Samuel L. Jackson kisses an Asian girl
  • They show the college students/Asian office workers
  • If you laugh when Jackson and the Asian girls are dancing during the montage of fights

arena-300In all seriousness, unless you’re a fan of the action movie genre or you share my fascination with Kellan Lutz this movie isn’t really worth your time. *Spoilers* It’s definitely not the stand-out example of the gladiator plot line, even with the twist that the protagonist is trying to become a fighter the whole time because he is an undercover agent that’s trying to bring the fighting ring down.  I can’t say I’m disappointed since I didn’t have high expectations in the first place, but I’m not going to be adding this one to my DVD collection.  Still, I’ll keep giving Kellan Lutz movies a chance if for nothing else than to see his gorgeous smile.
