"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?”

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…

YO UGA/GT/Emory folks: this is bullshit. take a stand, make a scene.

"To understand Newt Gingrich, you have to envision a mixture of “Kill Bill” and “Carrie,” after Sissy Spacek gets hit with the bucket of blood. His only mission in life is getting even with Mitt Romney and the rich minions who paid for all those anti-Newt ads in Iowa. He is exactly like Sweeney Todd mixed with Charles Bronson in “Death Wish.” And maybe a smidge of “Shogun Assassin.”"

"It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs. This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster."

Reed Hastings • In a very short post on the Netflix blog about the about-face his company did regarding Qwikster. He added: “While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.” That’s all you needed to say. (via kohenari)

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.

I’m sorry… I couldn’t not post this.  :)

Leia, I am home now, and my huge lightsaber hilt is … oh so suggestive.

Have I mentioned my undying love for Mark Hamill?

One can only hope.
