MVPs of the Month: Charlize Theron and “Anyway You Want It”

posted by Nell Minow

 

Oscar-winner Charlize Theron is the most valuable performer of the month with back-to-back releases.  In Snow White and the Huntsman, she plays the evil queen who wants to eat the heroine’s heart.  And in “Prometheus,” she plays the determined and highly authoritative person in charge of the eponymous spaceship and its mission to find the origins of life on earth.

And we have a song MVP this week, too, Journey’s “Anyway You Want It.”  It appears in today’s release of “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” and in next week’s tribute to the 80’s, a decade of stadium rock and big, big hair, “Rock of Ages.”  We’ll try to overlook the fact that it is also featured in State Farm’s current television commercials.
