Sandra Bullock and The Blind Side's White Savior Problem [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gt3FoBI0lwA[/url] [quote]When reviewing The Blind Side for the Telegraph, Sukhdev Sandu wrote “Just because the story is true doesn’t make it real.” Director John Lee Hancock chose to frame the film about a black teen who became a football star around his white benefactors, and in doing so may have actually contributed to Sandra Bullock’s Oscar win in 2010 for Best Actress. In this video, I show you how.[/quote] [url]https://www.quora.com/Why-did-the-Fantastic-Four-movies-fail/answer/Aydin-Yorukoglu-2[/url] [quote]Well for one Fox don’t get the characters, the only good thing about their films were the cast. The first Fox iteration were cast well: Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm, Chris Evans as Johnny Storm and Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Doctor Doom wasn’t cast well. Same with the X-Men, their films are mediocre but the cast is good notably Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X and Ian Mckellen as Magneto (and Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as their younger versions). Another problem is they used Doctor Doom too early, and the result was them downgrading him to be an average villain rather than a big threat. They had other villains like Mole Man, Impossible Man, Namor and the Skrulls, they should’ve built up to him for at least the second film because Galactus and Annihilus will be better big villains but still Doctor Doom shouldn’t be downgraded like that. Galactus. Why was he a frickin cloud? Sure I get that they didn’t have the budget but come on they could’ve done better than that. If they couldn’t do him right then they shouldn’t have included him, it’s like SONY forcing Venom into Spider-Man 3 they didn’t do him properly and he wasn’t as menacing as he is in the comics he looked like someone wearing a Halloween costume and he had a gay ass voice. Another problem with Doom. They used him too much even in two films. In the second film he was reduced even more to a pain in the ass for the F4 rather than a villain.[/quote] Why’d it Bomb? Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (2019) [url]https://lebeauleblog.com/2019/06/15/whyd-it-bomb-godzilla-king-of-the-monsters-and-pokemon-detective-pikachu-2019/[/url] [quote]But I think the problem with both movies is that, even though fan reception towards both has been positive, it’s been made clear by critics that both are really just for the fans and doesn’t have much for parents or other people that have been dragged to the cinema. It’s not like the MCU, which the fans love and have also been made accessible by the general public, if you don’t care about Godzilla or Pokemon, there’s not much of a reason to buy a ticket. And I think Warner and Legendary overestimated how well these movies would do while only catering to a niche fanbase. Yes these fanbases include lots and lots of people, especially Pokemon, but, as has been pointed out by me last time, that doesn’t necessarily mean the entire fanbase is going to see everything in these respective franchises. So it’s probably a better idea to try to cater to as many people as you can, as long as you don’t go too overboard with trying to get newbs’ butts in seats, by basically ignoring the source material, like Dragonball Evolution did. Or Godzilla ’98. Or Super Mario Bros. Instead these movies proved you can be faithful to the source material and still come out with a movie that falls flat as a movie.[/quote] I'm certain that there are men out there who get their rocks off being around vulnerable, childlike women. Kim Basinger is pretty much the embodiment of vulnerability, so for Alec Baldwin, is was likely a control thing. [url]http://tinyurl.com/78enbhu[/url] She talked about the time she had agreed to do a love scene, but with no nudity and the director kept her in her trailer for three hours yelling at her that she needed to get naked for the scene to make it real. There was that word again and she was tired of it. He gave her something to take and then had sex with her and she finally agreed to get naked for the movie. There she was in front of 30 other people having sex on camera and the director yelling at her to make it more real. more sexy. He never even used the scene. It ended up on the cutting room floor. She later heard he had hours of footage of actresses from scenes just like hers that ended up in his home but never on screen. He loved the power. After one too many gropings on set or coke being offered to her. Our actress just left. She walked away. One second she was there and one she was not. She says she has quit forever.

ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 06/12 A few years ago it seemed like you could not watch any movie without seeing this actress. She was everywhere. She was the it girl. She was the next big thing. She was in big movies and blockbusters and even got nominated for some of the bigger awards and then one day, she was gone. Vanished. She was B+ list at the time and now, if she decided to come back, she would probably still be close to a B because of her name and what she did in her short time. She has talked about coming back but she went through some of the roughest times that I have ever heard. She was in her late teens when she really got noticed and that is when it became hard. There was the movie with the method actor who has been nominated for an Academy Award and is A list all the way. He decided that he was going to do drugs for the movie and insisted she do the same. He said he would get her fired if she didn't, so there she was in an alley in a city she had never been before smoking crack with an actor who said it was all part of the process. When he forced her to have sex with her "to keep things real," she wondered if that was part of the process too. Apparently his process involved him having sex with every female on the production. There was the producer who kept wanting her to read for a part and would keep insisting that she come at the end of the day to his office. After everyone left for work. She knew what was going to happen. She knew it and told her agent she didn't want to go and why couldn't she meet the producer somewhere else. The agent told her the producer always did it that way. A soon as she got to his office and he reached for her breast she ran screaming from the office and never went back. Her agent acted like it was a big misunderstanding and he would get her another meeting with the producer. Maybe they could go to dinner or something. The History of Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends: Spiders, Fire & Ice [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_f-71NF16c[/url] [quote]On this weeks episode we cover the history of Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends, an animated series that lasted only a few seasons and should not be confused with the other Spider-Man cartoon that premiered on the same day. In this one Spider-Man is joined by Ice Man and Firestar, who was created specifically for this show but has since become part of the Marvel Universe proper. Almost no merchandise and no action figures, this was a cartoon created specifically to sell comic books.[/quote] [url]https://www.quora.com/Was-21-Jump-Street-partially-responsible-for-Miami-Vices-cancellation-in-1989[/url] Tye Sheridan Confirms Aliens In ‘Dark Phoenix’ Were Initially Skrulls Before Reshoots [url]https://theplaylist.net/tye-sheridan-skrulls-dark-phoenix-20190611/[/url] [quote]“It’s really hard for me to remember what the ending of this movie is. [laughs] Originally, it was scripted that Charles and Scott go to the U.N. because — man, I’m totally going to mess this up — they go to the U.N. because they’re going to try to tell the President that, ‘Hey, we’re under attack by aliens, and they’ve now captured Jean Grey.’ Or, you know, whatever it is that we’re going to tell him. “And then Jean comes down in the front of the U.N., and causes… there is this huge battle between the guards at the U.N. and Jean Grey, and all the guards turn out to be Skrulls. And then Jean and Scott are — Scott is fighting Skrulls in the fountain. He gets thrown into the fountain in front of the U.N. And then Jean comes down and basically fights all of the Skrulls off, and then blasts back off into space. [She] basically says goodbye to Scott and Charles. And then it’s all over, I guess.”[/quote] Netflix boss again defends One Day at a Time's cancelation [url]https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/netflixs-cindy-holland-defends-one-day-at-a-time-cancellation-1203240204/[/url] Cindy Holland, vice president of originals for Netflix, reiterated today while on stage at Recode's Code conference with Russian Doll star Natasha Lyonne that the beloved comedy wasn't attracting enough viewership to keep it going. “It would grow a little bit but we just couldn’t find the broad audience that it could get and deserved to get,” said Holland. “It has to get a big enough audience to justify the cost of it and in that particular case, it didn’t.” In contrast, she pointed out Russian Doll was exceeding Netflix's expectations.
