Anyway. These movies are a complete guilty pleasure--some of them, anyway (the upcoming one, Cowbelles, looks like unmitigated crap). I'm kinda bitter that I missed High School Musical.
If anybody *did* catch HSM, I was wondering about the following:
1. Was it just something about the previews, or did anyone else's gaydar start pinging regarding Sharpay's brother (Ryan?)...? Because I tend to think that I have absolutely no gaydar and it went off like crazy every time DC played the music video featuring the two siblings ("What I've Been Looking For").
2. Since I missed the movie, I can only go by what I saw in the music video for "What I've Been Looking For." But I caught this weird incestuous vibe with Sharpay and Ryan (which seems strangely paradoxical considering the supposed gayness of the latter). Seems the song is more of what you'd sing with your boyfriend/girlfriend. Plus, Sharpay mentions in the previews that she and her brother have starred in all the drama productions and if one takes that to mean the main parts, that would translate to leading lady and leading man. Who are probably love interests.
Or this could all just be a product of my sick and twisted mind.
High School Musical was quite possibly the greatest thing ever. And, yes, Ryan was totally gay. There was one scene where he was wearing a lime green sparkly sequined newsboy hat. And he wore newsboy hats in every scene.
The relationship betwee Sharpay and Ryan was very weird. I noticed it immediately when I heard they were siblings and also starred in every musical. Typically the leads in musicals are romantic partners.
I know the soundtrack to HSM is out, maybe they'll release it on dvd. I hope to god they do, I will wear that dvd out.
Great, now I need to see this more than ever.

For anybody who watched the DCO movies Smart House and Brink!, I thought that this link might be of some random interest. There's a link to Katie's myspace in the comments section, as well.
