Adam Driver, Anaconda, and Apparently: Sean T. Collins Follow @theseantcollins weird that the person they went after from Ghostbusters was Leslie Jones. weird that the person they went after from Star Wars was Kelly Marie Tran. what on earth could explain this 5:29 AM 5 Jun 2018 7,482 Retweets 31,087 Likes rockyrz: libertarirynn: siryouarebeingmocked: grumpy-goompa: siryouarebeingmocked: skeleton-jack: cookingwithroxy: siryouarebeingmocked: derpomatic: siryouarebeingmocked: theunnamedstranger: siryouarebeingmocked: theindependentconservative: siryouarebeingmocked: friendly-neighborhood-ehrhardt: triggeredmedia: Bad acting and bad characters? other actors in those movies/franchises got shit from trolls too. melissa mccarthy. hayden christiansen. jake lloyd. laura dern. the difference is that all these media outlets didnt declare it a public crises keep reporting on it months after it was news.  in fact, jake lloyd probably got it worse than anyone, being an actual child at the time being traumatized for years because of bullying, but no one cared at the time now it only gets brought up as a tacked on example when talking about those awful modern star wars fans. hes a straight white man. what on earth could explain this? in leslie jones case, she turned it into an internet slap fight drew much more attention to her when before that she was getting no more shit than the other leads. look, we should always separate the actor from their role people who attack an actor personally for a role are scumbags, but stop injecting racism sexism into everything then using it as a shield against actual valid criticism. Not to mention Adam Driver. He’s still getting crapped on. People complained that he was playing a Jewish guy infiltrating the Klan in a historical Spike Lee movie, even though he isn’t Jewish, which is apparently Not Allowed. These are popular franchises. If a fraction of a percent of their fans are knob-ends who harass people, that would seem overwhelming to the person on the receiving end. Not to mention Rey’s a Mary Sure now and everyone called it. You do remember that I disagree with the majority opinion, right? Also, people were calling her a Mary Sue from the first movie. Sometimes based on things that literally didn’t happen, like “being a better pilot than Han”. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life until she could pilot it BETTER than someone who’s had it forever.That’s bullshit. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life You mean the ship that she explicitly called “junk”? The one she says she advised against certain modifications for? The one owned by the Quarter Portion guy, who used to be her guardian, as we see in the flashback? How does Rey fly the ship better than Han? Please, I haven’t seen a single piece of evidence for this in over two and a half years, but it’s treated as gospel.  Heck, he didn’t even “have it forever”, he lost it years, maybe decades ago. Better than Han is less important than outflying two Ties on her first attempt. Only due to home ground advantage, vs. two fighters designed mainly for space combat with horrible aerodynamics, and even then, she got Finn’s turret shot. Also, she’s all-but-explicitly shown to be using The Force. The dialogue draws attention to the fact that she’s flying better than she expects. ‘somebody did a thing that is entirely understandable given the context of the prior movies and the actual text of the movie at hand. But for some reason I missed these obvious things so yarrr!’ No I fully accept the explanations for it. I still think it was poorly done and added to Rey’s perception as a Mary Sue who faces no real challenges and succeeds at everything. That there’s an explanation for what she’s doing and how she’s doing it doesn’t change that I and many people think she shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. So, shedloads of people apparently ignored or missed the clear on-screen evidence to complain about this aspect of the movie, but it’s still the movie’s fault that they’re wrong, even when they’re making claims which they could not have reasonably arrived at (EG Rey’s a better pilot than Han.), and the only possible explanation is “fandom misconceptions”? just because she succeeded (lived) doesn’t mean Rey herself experienced these things as ‘easy’. how many movies out there does the hero do something unexpectedly and benefit from the results? like maybe all of them? movies would be boring if characters are powerless the entire time until the exact one moment they need to win. they need to succeed and stumble a little bit along the way. little wins and little losses until the end. if she got her arm cut off, would that remove people’s mary sue label? Thing is, people ignore the actual struggles she went through just because they have a Narrative. She didn’t just beat Kylo, he knocked her out pretty much instantly, and then Fin bought her time, and then she temporarily forced Ben back (IIRC, the book says she tapped into the Dark Side). We don’t even know if he would’ve been able to win if he got up, or even if he could get up. And this was while Kylo was bleeding out from a high-powered weapon, which the movie takes pain to remind us of. But the fanbase acts like Rey apparently beat Ben with one hand tied behind her back, wearing a blindfold, while suffering from some hideous space-combination of Avian Flu and Ebola Zaire. I’m so glad I’m not crazy. I thought I was the only one in the more conservative camp that doesn’t agree that Rey is a Mary Sue. There is lots of in-text explanation for why she excels at certain things as well as the time honored “because the Force“ answer which has applied to a lot of characters besides her. And she absolutely does have struggles even if they are primarily in emotional conflict and wrestling with her untapped strength and insecurities about her origins. These are what make the character. Calling the whole character a Mary Sue because “she fight too good“ is kind of asinine. And don’t get me started on how they bitch about her beating Kylo and forget that he was mortally wounded at the time, and bitch about her knowing something about the Millennium Falcon and mechanical engineering despite the fact that she was A PROFESSIONAL JUNKER and the ship had been on her planet probably most of her life giving her plenty of time to explore it. But yeah pretending that only the minority actors/actresses get harrassed is bullshit. Rey is 100% a Mary Sue. No training yet managed to beat Kylo Ren, flew a ship across space despite no experience, etc. @rockyrz did you read literally one word from the post above you or are you just gonna keep shouting “she’s a Mary Sue!“ and ignore all evidence to the contrary?“Managed to beat Kylo Ren”BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING MORTALLY WOUNDED.“flew a ship across space”BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST STATED SHE WAS A PILOT.Like seriously it’s fine if you don’t like the movie but you seem kind of dumb if you just straight up ignore the evidence even it’s right in front of your face so you can keep saying the same thing over and over.

Funny, Saw, and Tumblr: Going back to episode 1, how did that French segment come about? I feel likeI saw a lot of viewers at the advance screening and the TV broadcast who were left dumbfounded... That was Kamikaze Douga's idea. There's a French person who works at Kamikaze Douga, you see You mean the one who shows up on camera. That's him. He doesn't speak Japanese, and communicates at work with English, so Kamikaze Douga said, "Wouldn't it be funny if we gave him the manga and let him we ended up going with that suggestion. Since he doesn't understand Japanese, he made the segment by looking at the art and imagining what was going on. That's why it ignores the canon and has Popuko and Pipimi going to Paris, and makes self-deprecating French jokes. Also, he creates those as a one-man team, which is why it's animated more like a Western cartoon. We also hired French voice actresses, so the footage is sent over there for voice-over recording. Iwas shocked to hear how much it actually cost to do all hat...laughs e pleased?" So 凸 the-nuclear-chaos: sirlorence: what an absolute legend Small mind: spending your animation budget conservatively. Regular mind: spending a bit extra to spice up action scenes. Big mind: blowing a chunk of the budget hiring French VAs to dub a scene improvised by a one-man animation team, that can’t read Japanese so doesn’t understand anything in the manga.

Advice, Crazy, and God: Quincy Jones Admits to Having 22 Girlfriends, Says They All Know of Each Other @balleralert Quincy Jones Admits to Having 22 Girlfriends, Says They All Know of Each Other - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After three marriages, QuincyJones is sure that he’s done with the faithful life. In fact, the divorcee has 22 girlfriends to prove it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with GQ Magazine, the 84-year-old entertainment mogul opened up about his love life, and none of us were mentally prepared for what he had to say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I got twenty-two girlfriends,” he chuckles. “I was married three times, man. Was told not to marry actresses or singers. I ended up with two actresses—Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski, and a superstar model. I didn’t listen to all the advice.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However—despite his marital past, Jones doesn’t have any plans to tie the knot again anytime soon, especially since it’d be extremely hard to narrow down such a high number of girlfriends to just one wife, right? We’d imagine so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When asked if he was serious about having 22 lovers, Jones blatantly says, “Hell yeah. Everywhere. Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm-she’s coming in next week. Brazil-Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai, [I’ve] got a great girl over there, too, man.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly, all of the women know of each other, as Jones proudly admits that “he doesn’t lie.” And, allegedly, most of them are between the ages of 28 and 42. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, when the question came up about if he’d ever date someone around his age, Jones was quick to shut that down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Are you crazy?” He gives the interviewer a startled look. “For what, man? There’s nothing; there’s no upside. You gotta be kidding. I got me some technology out there that keeps [the] fat and old away from here. [It] buzzes if they’re too old. But, you’d be surprised. These women, the young ones, are aggressive now. Oh my God, they’re fearless, man. All over the world.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As you can see, Mr. Jones is still a rolling stone, even in his old age.

Community, Memes, and American: First Black Oscar Award Winner, Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic @balleralert First Black Oscar Award Winner Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic – blogged By @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, a biopic for African American and Hollywood pioneer, HattieMcDaniel is now in the works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those of us who’ve slept on black history- McDaniel was the first African American (man or woman) to receive an Oscar. Her role as “Mammy” in the film “Gone With The Wind” earned her the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” in 1940. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the film’s success and eight Oscar Awards, McDaniel, along with the rest of her black castmates weren’t allowed at the premiere of the film in Georgia. The color of her skin also caused for McDaniel to not be allowed to sit with the rest of the nominated cast at the Oscar Awards, but allowed her a seat in the back of the venue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Variety, producers of the film, AaronMagnani and AlysiaAllen got their hands on the rights to Jill Watts’ published biography, “Hattie McDaniel: Black Ambition, White Hollywood” to help them with the film. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though people in the black community criticized her for playing roles that they felt fed into racial stereotypes for African Americans, McDaniel served as a pioneer and example for aspiring African American actors and actresses for generations to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Considering the fact that the first black man to receive a golden globe for best actor in a TV series happened just a week ago, this biopic is a big deal, and long overdue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Continue to rest in peace Ms. McDaniel and congratulations.

In other words, if you give me a job, you can have sex with me.” He pointed out how that was commonplace and said it was “madness.” Although supportive of the victims, he went on to talk about being cautious about the accusations flooding Hollywood as of late. “‘I assume nothing but good will come out of these revelations, even though some people get wrongly accused — there’s that side of it as well,” he said.

They completely lack the unique flavor of the Greco-Roman-inspired armor ensembles that <a href="http://www.core77.com/posts/67334/Breaking-Down-the-Design-of-the-Amazonian-Armor-in-Wonder-Woman">Lindy Hemming put so much thought and historical research into creating for Wonder Woman</a>. The Wonder Woman designs received acclaim from fans and costume fanatics alike. They were clearly inspired by the Amazon’s origins in the Mediterranean and were feminine but very functional. Why mess with perfection?</p> <p>Oh, right. The all-male team of directors and executive directors wanted women to fight in bikinis.</p> </blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/64a5daf0bf27696135634411c2cf56eb/tumblr_inline_ozbqfiqCut1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"/></figure><blockquote><p> Wonder Woman began filming in 2015, the year before Justice League started filming in 2016. The Amazons’  design was finalized and most of the costumes completed while Justice League was still in pre-production. That means that there were discussions about what the Amazons should wear into battle in Justice League and the epic designs from Wonder Woman were rejected in favor of leather bikinis. Let that sink in. They rejected already finished costumes to redesign and remake the armor so that more skin would be showing. <br/></p></blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d172189772b58e2d882d19dabac0fe0b/tumblr_inline_ozbqglLixP1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"/></figure></blockquote> <p>“To be absolutely clear, my issue is not with the lack of modesty. The Amazons in <a href="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C_7HrJaUQAACKYj.jpg">Wonder Woman wore sports-bra-like outfits</a> when they were not fighting and I think that is very realistic for a society that lives in a Mediterranean climate. My problem is a millennia-old military culture wearing bikinis into battle because they are women. My problem is a wise civilization that was created by the gods to protect the world thinking that soft leather is armor.</p> <p>I have a problem with a really great design being thrown out in favor of something that would excite the cis male gaze.”<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Hahahahaha</p> <p>And there goes any desire i had to see this. I’ll wait for Diana and Aquaman on DVD.</p> </blockquote> <p>If you took any time to read into it, you’d find that many of the actresses enjoyed the change, as it allowed them to show off parts of themselves that some critique as being ‘masculine,’ in a very feminine way!</p><p><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/16/justice-league-box-office-thor-ragnarok-warner-brothers-competition/"></a><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/">http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/</a><br/></p><p><i> The costume actually gave Ence to show off her muscular physique, something she doesn’t get to do all the time. “I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually,) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body,” Ence said. “So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.” </i><br/></p><p><i>Also, ‘They aren’t wearing as much armor here because the film shows them fighting in a flashback which is thousands and thousands of yrs set before the Wonder Woman solo film.’ says a Twitter user. </i></p><p>Samantha Jo, who stars as the Amazon Euboea, shared a <a href="https://twitter.com/SamWJo/status/930557775633006592">lengthy response</a> to the controversy on Twitter. She praised director Snyder and costume designer Michael Wilkinson for making her feel “empowered”.</p><p>Referring to the more streamlined costumes, she wrote: “Amazonian fighting is a little more acrobatic and larger than life requiring armour that allows for that kind of articulation in the body.”</p><p>In fact, she went further and said she was “overjoyed” at the lack of body armour, which meant she avoided the “chafing, scrapes, pinched and bruised skin” she obtained while filming Wonder Woman.</p><p>Believe it or not, male directors aren’t inherently evil or sexist! Sometimes, it’s just armor! No one is out to turn these strong women into sex objects! </p></blockquote>

After collecting salary numbers from the past year, Washington reportedly brought in a whopping $11 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I just want to say that sometimes, we have been told a false narrative as women, often, that there is only room for one of us in the room,” Washington recently said at the 5th Annual Women Making History Award, highlighting the increase of female lead roles. “And it’s part of how they keep us small. Part of the culture of Shondaland is to shatter that illusion and I learned that on day one when I met Shonda [ SHondaRhimes]. And that culture has extended to all of the women in that land. We don’t hold back from our sisters.”

America, Animals, and Beyonce: Being Unapologetically Black In America @balleralert Being Unapologetically Black In America - blogged by: @asimplebijou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More and more in today's society, we see race becoming a constant topic of conversation in America. With powerful movements such as BlackLivesMatter, Thisiswhywekneel, and many more, race is being brought to the forefront of the oppressor, similar to the way it was many years ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black artists, directors, activists, actors, actresses, etc. have all utilized their platforms to shed light on the racism that still exists in our nation. Issa Rae, Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick, Kendrick Lamar, and Jesse Williams, have all openly spoke about the struggles we face as black people, while still encouraging us to be unapologetic about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be unapologetically black is to own that sh*t and be proud of it.
