Make it Count: 21 movie and OST

Last week I've seen the 21 and I think it was pretty cool. It was the usual blockbuster movie with the oh-so-predictable ending but I really loved how enticing they made Las Vegas appear to the viewers. I mean, like duh, its like, LAS VEGAS? Nobody thinks about Las Vegas and sees a tranquil landscape for the haggard traveler. Its where you get married in the spur-of-the-moment or lose your retirement benefits to an obvious losing game of poker. Plus Jim Sturgess looked particularly adorable without using his British accent from Across the Universe. I saw him first in that Beatles-inspired movie and I was impressed. I don't know if he's a newcomer but his acting is not too shabby for my taste. And plus, I loved their renditions of Dear Prudence and I Wanna Hold Your Hand. And the movie soundtrack of 21 was actually another reason why I wanna post the movie here cause, I mean, MGMT is just sooooo COOL. The techno beats actually made up for the awkward intro of the song Time to Pretend. And if you have noticed my blog music, with Rihanna's Shut up and Drive? Yeah, the movie resurrected my mainstream interests.

Here is 21's OST. You should download all of them!
