Isn’t It Romantic is Highlighted by Rebel Wilson’s Performance

Rebel Wilson is a riot in her new film Isn’t It Romantic. The actress brings her boisterous attitude to the big screen in this one, playing an Australian architect that lives in New York City. As always, Rebel showcases her talents in this production and proves that she truly is one of a kind.

Rebel Wilson hasn’t always been the confident and invoking figure she is today. Born in 1980 in Sydney, Australia, Rebel Wilson remembers being a shy girl growing up. She even recounts a time where her mother, a professional beagle breeder, dropped her off at a community acting class. Rebel wasn’t having any of it, forcing her mother to drag her out of the car and attend the class.

Wilson would go on to attend an all-girl high school and was encouraged by the high school drama teacher there. The school itself motivated young women to chase their dreams and go after passions they have.

Rebel’s anxiety of letting her dreams rest at the wayside motivated her to chase them and participate in various forms of improv and acting as a teen. She went on to have success in Australia on the stage and screen before moving to the United States in 2010.

When she moved to West Hollywood, California in 2010, the country wasn’t completely foreign to her. She spent some time in New York in the early 2000s when she worked with comedy enterprise Second City. It didn’t take long for Rebel to get a role in a big time US film production.

She was casted in Judd Apatow’s 2011 comedy Bridesmaids. Rebel has continued to thrive in movies, television, and on stage. There is no question that Rebel Wilson has many comedy forms in which she thrives in. Her latest role as Natalie in Isn’t It Romantic is unequivocally great.

Natalie is a complete skeptic when it comes to the idea of romantic comedies being real. She associates them to fantasy and nothing short of an event being played out to a pop song. Natalie has held this belief since childhood when her mother told her that romantic comedies aren’t realistic.

Upon the encouragement of a friend for her to get out and experience the community more, Natalie ventures out and seems to have a lead on a man appearing to flirt with her on the subway. Upon approaching him at the station, he attempts to mug Natalie but she fights him off and flees directly into a pole, knocking her unconscious.

Her world is an alternative universe when she wakes up. It is a real life romantic comedy that she must fight off to return to reality. Isn’t It Romantic hits theaters on February 13 in the US.

The Chainsmokers’ New Song

The Chainsmokers were formed in 2012 when Alex Pall met Andrew “Drew” Taggart and the duo decided to make a go of making music. They spent years practicing and perfecting their synergy and sound before performing their debut show in 2014 as the opening act for Timeflies at Terminal 5. They knew that had something going for them, and began recording and releasing music of their own.

They have released many EPs, a full-length album and many singles. The singles are often released for free to their fans through their official website. These singles are a way for them to keep new music in play all the time, as well as an outlet for sings they love but can’t fit on an album.

The most recent of their singles, “Side Effects”, is a collaboration with singer Emily Warren. Warren is a frequent collaborator and good friend of the Chainsmokers. They call her smart and creative, stressing that they work well with her and always have. They prefer to collaborate with musicians who they get along with personally. By just hanging around with the guest musician, they often conceive of a song on the fly with their collaborator.

With their music, the Chainsmokers like to write about events and feelings they are going through. This personal approach to music is a-typical of the dance/electronic genre, but Pall and Taggart want to push the boundaries on defined musical genres. They integrates other musical styles in their songs as often as they can, such as the upbeat sound of the disco and funk inspired “Side Effects.” Much of their recent music has been slower in tempo and had a darker tone, but with summer here the Chainsmokers decided to make something that “bangs” to release for summer, and “Side Effects” meets the criteria.

The Chainsmokers have gone from being a couple of guys behind turntables to performing with many elements of a traditional band. They are particularly fond of drums during their live show. They also are bringing Emily Warren on tour for a few dates, hoping the exposure will help.
