"One of the ancient ploys of the film industry is to make a film about non-white people and find a way, however convoluted, to tell it from the point of view of a white character."

Film critic Roger Ebert on Hollywood in his review of “Flowers of War”

“Can you think of any reason the character John Miller is needed to tell his story? Was any consideration given to the possibility of a Chinese priest? Would that be asking for too much?”

"What is it about living close to death that benefits your soul as a person? It reminds me of like being at a crazy concert or something, like in a mosh pit, and you come out and your nose is broken and you’re all fucked up but you’re like, “Wow I just accessed some incredibly important, ecstatic moment”… You can’t timidly find this ecstatic truth; you have to really push yourself to get there."

STFU, Conservatives: Republicans think I'm a slave?

raybancharles:

Everyone needs to pay special attention to this. The Georgia Association of College Republicans is sponsoring the premiere of a movie entitled “Runaway Slave”. The event page says, “The movie attempts to examine the reason why the black community aligns itself so closely with…

This is a video I put together and filmed one afternoon last week with my friends Sam and Luiza as an ad for our school’s Lit Mag (of which I am an editor along with those two). Enjoy.

So to begin,
DAT ASS.
Cowboys and Aliens was glorious. It was everything I want in an action movie (you’re about to find out what I want in an action movie.)
It had:
cowboys
guns
well timed and coordinated fight scenes
aliens
a genuinely frightening and malicious antagonist(s) 
interesting backstory incorporated smoothly into the movie
ALIENS, SCARY LOOKING ALIENS
hot men being badasses
a cohesive plot
epic ‘last stand’ scene
clever one liners
giant explosions
a weathered protagonist 
a romance that isn’t thrown in your face
Normally with an action movie, I get 3 or 4 of these. I had them all today and it was magnificent.

A look back at all the past Harry Potter movies.  Gets me so excited.

SO CLOSE TO THE END. I have so much childhood nostalgia wrapped up in this series (justlikeeveryoneelse), to have it finally come to a close is a little more finality than I’d like in my life.

hello, gorgeous. The eeriness of the Lovely Bones is very nearly offset by how gorgeous Reece Ritchie is.
