'The Bachelor' (2012) Spoilers

This is the place for spoilers... where I hide the goodies from my regular readers over on Cinema Static.  Today, the spoilers involve The Bachelor, Ben and Courtney Robertson.

As you all know, Courtney is a rather evil and vindictive sounding humanoid.  And ABC fed her self-indulgent moods and wants.  But if you dig a little bit with the right Google keywords, you'll find out all kinds of information.

For one... if you're here, then you probably know that according to reports [spoilers after the page break],

Spoiler Chat About The Movie CHRONICLE

Spoiler Chat About The Movie CHRONICLE

THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE and maybe you should check out my movie review of Chronicle first before continuing!

I just got out of the movie theater after seeing Chronicle, starring Dane DeHaan (True Blood, In Treatment), Alex Russell & Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails, Parenthood, Friday Night Lights).  I want to chat about some of the details of the movie that I feel I couldn't put in my spoiler-free review.

It was a fun movie and all and came away having enjoyed my movie-going experience.  But in my movie review of Chronicle, I point out a few things that were glossed over during the movie.

Andrew (DeHaan) is pretty much the primary character and is the troubled, tormented social outcast kid who takes a lot of crap from everyone.  When his cousin Matt (Russell) and his friend Steve (Jordan) find the hole in the ground, what drew them in was a sound coming from the hole, and they seemed pretty brave about diving in.

The thing they encounter in the back of the cave is barely really touched on, but we see enough of it to realize that they're touching it... well, Steve touching it, causes it to turn colors and they get zapped.  The thing is cool, because what we did see looks like a big quartz crystal with wiggly tendrils in it.  I think.

Things progress from there as they three friends toy with their new powers.
