In the past week, we've seen a very carefully orchestrated and targeted media campaign to officially sink the often-accused and decades-long-known serial Hollywood Creep, Harvey Weinstein. There isn't much to explain that articles from The New Yorker, New York Times, etc haven't already covered; but these allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior (to say the least) have been… Continue reading Is Harvey Weinstein the Iceberg…or Just the Tip?
Hey, Celebrities…We Need to Talk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTYidWBC8-4 You're frustrated, I get it. In a lot of ways, we're all frustrated. You have to deal with our nitpicking over every Blockbuster big-budget film you guys squirt out for a paycheck; and we have to deal with a mass media that obsesses over everything you guys say and do. We're both trying to… Continue reading Hey, Celebrities…We Need to Talk
OK, you cunts. Let’s see what you can do now…
It has become increasingly clear that the day of Batman and Robin is over. No longer will comic book inspired movies have an underlying need to appeal to the goofy broad base of children and popcorn shovelers. Are there bad comic book adaptations? Absolutely--but KICK-ASS is not one of them. KICK-ASS is set in a… Continue reading OK, you cunts. Let’s see what you can do now…
Someone Died, Age 38, in Burbank
Strangers die every day, and if you really think about it, every single one of those individuals was largely insignificant in the big picture--like an insect. Certainly, family members, loved ones--their importance is relative. They mean the world to you when they're alive, and sometimes, mean even more when they're gone. It's an incredible phenomenon.… Continue reading Someone Died, Age 38, in Burbank
Trailers of the Week: Memorial Day Edition
Before you start to fling about your rampant accusations, let me just say--in my defense--that I am inflicted with the most horribly debilitating of physical and psychological diseases. No, it's not Swine Flu. It's Summer Laziness. The symptoms of which are chronic procrastination, writer's block, and an ever-increasing ass-groove in what had once been a… Continue reading Trailers of the Week: Memorial Day Edition
What the Fuck Happened? Actors Turned Musicians
It's no secret that we live in a world of excess. The zeitgeist indicates that we are no longer content in simply being good or even great, we need to be better--do more--even if that means dangerously shoving ourselves past the points of logic, common sense, and personal ability. I'd like to focus, for the sake… Continue reading What the Fuck Happened? Actors Turned Musicians
The Top 10 Famous Female D-Bags
The term 'douchebag' gets thrown around a lot these days. It holds with it a stigma that tends to be uniquely masculine. When characterizing a female as particularly "in your face" or "intellectually offensive," one might use terms like 'bitch' or the ever popular 'C-Word.' It must be noted, however, that these terms (while succinct… Continue reading The Top 10 Famous Female D-Bags
An Open Letter to a Celebrity-Obsessed America
My Dear Celebrity-Obsessed Americans-- Though the whole world (especially the Western One) is crippled by their unhealthy appetite for tabloids and gossip entertainment that belittle and viciously attack the personal lives of those who they all wish that they could be, I can only speak on behalf of like-minded people within my own country (plus,… Continue reading An Open Letter to a Celebrity-Obsessed America
Does Anybody Care About Movies?
A while back, I started a weekly article series called "Trailers of the Week." Not a very captivating title, but it did the job. Needless to say, I've been slacking. All my effort has gone into the Super Dudes Power Squad web-show (first motherfucking episode done, btw) and I've missed out on (what Johnny On… Continue reading Does Anybody Care About Movies?
