2020.11.26 14:14 OldmanRevived I saw five movies (Hillbilly Elegy, Let Him Go, Buddy Games, Happiest Season, Uncle Frank)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
First up was Hillbilly Elegy
When it was published in 2016, J.D. Vance's memoir "Hillbilly Elegy," unread by me, was slammed by many for indulging in the same hackneyed stereotypes about rural America that it was theoretically designed to deflate, and for reducing the impact of social, political and economic factors in order to favor a more inspirational narrative of triumphing. In this story, a young man, attending Yale Law School, returns to his hometown in Ohio to help his mother, who recently overdosed on heroin. While that story plays, the man's past, as well as flashes from a more distant past, reveals itself, showing us what it was like for him as a child, living amidst economic uncertainty and various unaddressed conflicts within his family.
Indeed, there are at least a few broader stories in the background of Vance's personal account. One of them is what happened to the family's native spot in the Appalachia region of Kentucky, once prospering with the jobs and industry of a local steel mill but later, by the time he is aware of it, filled with boarded-up storefronts, as people linger on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots with nothing to do. This juxtaposes the family's return home with their initial migration to Ohio. The mill was running back then, when J.D.'s grandparents packed up the car and moved.
The other broader tale belongs to the family, beyond adult J.D. (Gabriel Basso) and his younger self (played by Owen Asztalos). In the present, J.D. is looking for an internship at a law firm that will keep him close to his girlfriend Usha (Freida Pinto). While dining with prospective law partners, he receives a call from his sister Lindsay (Haley Bennett), who inform him that their mother Bev (Amy Adams) overdosed. He returns home and tries to arrange a place for Bev in a rehab facility, all while he has a job interview the next morning.
In the past, J.D. had to deal with the mercurial moods of his mother, while seeking support and attention from his grandmother, affectionately called Mamaw (Glenn Close). We see the start and decline of Bev's addiction; she's a parasite, an addict, a narcissist, and a desperate user of others, notably her own family. J.D. foots the bill for a week-long stay on four credit cards, only to learn that Bev has no interest in going into rehab. As a former nurse who trashed her career when she roller-skated through the corridors of a hospital after popping pills, she's been shooting heroin, and she seems to be going down fast.
How did J.D. go all the way from Middletown to Yale? We're not entirely sure, though we know that he got there, so there’s not much suspense about whether he figured out how to transcend his past. The film keeps flashing back to his days as a teenager in the late 1990s. J.D., it's suggested, gets lost because his mother flees from one man to the next. When she marries on a whim, he winds up with a druggie delinquent stepbrother. A scene or two later, he has fallen into delinquency himself, a transformation that is less than convincing.
The movie's tone, guided by J.D.'s narration, veers between romanticizing certain elements of this downhome culture, a scolding attitude toward certain issues and a dismissive outlook on others, and just wallowing in the abject misery of this place and these people. It's all over the place, really, although there's one position upon which the movie never genuinely stops: compassion. Director Ron Howard works in the tradition of Colorful People who relentlessly inflict their colorfulness on us as if we could not see in the first six minutes that they were afflicted.
Give some credit to Glenn Close, who spends most of the movie with a cigarette in her mouth, wisecracking to everything that stands in her way. She acts as a person who is tired of being colorful, and even more tired of having a colorful family. What's best about the movie are the actors' human qualities. Amy Adams has a direct, blunt honesty that is appealing, and it's put to a good effect here. Both Asztalos and Basso have a dry way of sardonically holding their distance, but there you have the role of most narrators, anyway.
If I spent a lot of time performing a census of the cast, it is because the movie seems to rotate among its characters as if taking inventory. Nothing happens in "Hillbilly Elegy" that I cared much about. The movie leaves me with such vivid memories of its times and places, its feelings and weathers, and yet leaves me so completely indifferent to its plot. It presents the cycles of addiction and abuse, not with any insight or thoughtfulness, but with a sense of inescapable fate. From this perspective, these characters are essentially condemned to these lives for reasons beyond the movie's ability or willingness to confront.
"Hillbilly Elegy" hinges on Mamaw's hope that she'll leave her family better off than she found them, and it’s clear that J.D.'s story has fulfilled that wish almost as soon as this movie starts. But the process of watching him cut his losses and recommit to his own success is rendered in a way that just isn't dramatically satisfying. Everyone else's lives and problems really don't matter to this story, except that they give J.D. a few lessons to learn and a whole lot to run from. This is a movie that's surprisingly good in areas where it doesn't need to be good at all, and pretty awful in areas where it has to succeed.
Next up was Let Him Go
The opening images of "Let Him Go" include Kevin Costner standing behind a fence and watching as a horse jogs around in the pasture. He spends a lot of time standing alone, doing nothing, maybe thinking nothing, observing as if it is a task that provides him with purpose. He's not bitter or depressed or anything of the sort. He's simply content. This is just another relaxing start to his day.
George (Costner) and Margaret (Diane Lane) have been married for decades. Living on a ranch in Montana, the two are finally and completely happy when we first meet them. Their house evokes the healing serenity of wide-open spaces, overlooking fields that are perfect for horseback riding. They have an adult son, James (Ryan Bruce), who has married and given the two their first grandchild. All of them live under the same roof. When George and Margaret are sitting at the table eating breakfast, they look so comfortable with each other that they make us feel cozy.
Suddenly, tragedy strikes when James dies in an accident, and their insular, peaceful world is understandably shattered. A few years later, his wife Lorna (Kayli Carter) marries Donnie Weboy (Will Brittain), but it’s obvious from their dour ceremony that this is a union of necessity. While in town one day, Margaret sees Donnie abuse Lorna, as well as her grandson Jimmy. She tells George, and they go to the apartment where Lorna and Donnie live, hoping to take custody of the boy. Instead, they find that Donnie has abruptly packed them up and moved to parts unknown.
Margaret refuses to accept the situation, planning a road trip across state lines to retrieve Jimmy and raise him. George is reluctant, but she eventually convinces him. After packing his suitcase, George wanders out of the room without it. Margaret thinks he has changed his mind, but he explains he's just turning off the water. "I'm not coming home to busted pipes," he says. They pack up the station wagon for a road trip to begin the process of tracking down Donnie. She even packs George's old service revolver, just in case.
They travel from Montana to North Dakota, making a few stops along the way for information or to rest. George's connections as a retired lawman, vaguely famous in the region, help. They meet Peter, played by Booboo Stewart, a young Native American man living off a stolen horse, but not looking for any loot to steal. George and Margaret reminisce and occasionally bicker, but the two mostly share comfortable silences that say everything.
On a plot level, that ramps up the tension as George and Margaret encounter various members of Donnie's family (Jeffrey Donovan plays a false-smiling uncle, and Lesley Manville shows up as the tough, authoritative matriarch), leading to an unstoppable series of threats and violence. There’s a third act that's so wildly out of left field, it could have shifted the tone completely. But somehow, it works, because the movie never made me lose interest in its central characters. There's still a reticence, an unwillingness to push the violence beyond where it wants to go
Faithful readers will know that I have a certain fondness for movies with villains who are so despicable and repugnant that we cheer when we see something horrible happen to them. "Let Him Go" does not disappoint in this regard, although it does cost us something extra in the process. I still have yet to decide if the movie's ending is a particularly good one. As silly as it sounds, I really came to enjoy the company of George and Margaret, and I couldn't bear to see anything nasty happen to such good people. Oh well. Maybe it's another example of how sometimes we just have to face reality.
Many of the reviews of the film have criticized it on the basis of its plot and its tonal shift. I like it because of the time I got to spend with the characters as they dealt with family matters over a period of days. It was intrinsically interesting, not because of what it was about, but simply because of what it was. I think perhaps "Let Him Go" is gently trying to be a movie about imperfect but interesting people, the goodness of whose souls is tested by a private crisis. No great lessons are learned, no great statements made, but by the end of the film we have spent some interesting time with these people, and know them better.
Next up was Buddy Games
Although I am aware sperm is a precious bodily fluid, I don't find it an especially funny one. In "Buddy Games," the male characters are neurotic about three subjects: the size, experience, and health of their reproductive organs. This movie is like a study of de-evolution and man's ability to cheat natural selection. It's full of material that would be rejected from most third-grade recess periods for lacking wit and dignity.
Josh Duhamel, an actor who projects likability, makes his directorial debut with this comedy, which he also co-wrote and stars in. Looking at the film's press notes, he informs us that he always wanted to direct, and that writing a screenplay seemed like the natural way to start. He was close. Writing a bad screenplay is a natural way to start. There's no excuse in making the decision to film it. What he has made is yet another hymn to arrested male adolescence that should be mandatory viewing in convents to prevent nuns from thinking of renouncing their vows of celibacy.
Duhamel plays Bob, a successful businessman who has created the Buddy Games, an annual competition in which him and his friends strive to beat each other in a variety of contests. Indulging their "primal need to dominate," the guys usually aim for a lame trophy and, more importantly, bragging rights. The other members are Durfy (Dax Shepard), Doc (Kevin Dillon), Bender (Nick Swardson), Zane (James Roday). At the beginning of the movie, Sheldon (Dan Bakkedahl), the most avid competitor, is having a glorious time, until someone shoots him in the testicles with a paint gun.
Cut to five years later: Sheldon has been in a funk ever since, having lost both precious orbs of manhood. Bob, meanwhile, has a beautiful girlfriend (Olivia Munn), and he's also quite rich, which enables him to restart the Buddy Games at the behest of Sheldon's mother, who thinks it's the only way to lift her son out of his suicidal depression. When the other members prove reluctant to go along, Bob throws in a $150,000 prize as an enticement.
But Sheldon will only come back if Bender, the guy who shot him, will be excluded. To dissuade Bender from joining in, Bob tells him that there's a substantial entry fee. To his surprise, Bender successfully raises money by prostituting himself and selling vodka in his mini-van. Eventually, the group reunites for a new round of games, which include such not so hilarious exercises as attaching steaks to their heads and confronting a giant lizard. The most extended segment involves the men ingesting laxatives at a crowded bar and trying to persuade women to buy them a drink before the drugs take effect. It's no spoiler to reveal that not all of them succeed.
These guys seem to have it out for each other. Sure, a couple of them talk about how the game has kept them together all these years, long after one would imagine childhood friends would go their separate ways. To what end does it keep them together, though? The movie wants us to simultaneously view these characters as representations of middle-aged vulnerability and sometimes as literal punching bags, constantly to be beaten, smashed, and pulverized. There's something wrong with these people, and the simple fact of the matter is that watching them satisfy their masochistic tendencies isn't fun or funny.
There is a kind of one-upmanship now at work in Hollywood, inspired by the success of several gross-out comedies, to elevate smut into an art form. This is not an entirely futile endeavor; it can be done, and when it is done well, it can be funny. There's a scene in this movie where Bender also tries to appease his guilt by offering Sheldon a refrigerated humidor full of his own semen. Later, when Sheldon is in the kitchen making Pina Coladas, he grabs the semen and mixes it in. Yuck. Millions of little soldiers being massacred for a laugh.
For a fleeting moment, the film stops trying to break the Guinness Book record for offensive crudity and decides to simply be funny. The best part of "Buddy Games," and really the best part of any bad movie, is Olivia Munn. When Bob tells her about his plan to start the games again, she doesn't waste any time ditching him. Then, at the end, she rushes over to Bob in hopes that the games are finally over and they can start a life together. She pulls out the little black box, and shows him a ring. What does he do? He rejects it. At this point, it was clear that none of the idiots in "Buddy Games" are worth saving. I don't know about you, but if Olivia Munn walked up to me and handed over an engagement ring, I would take my chances.
Next up was Happiest Season
There is an emerging genre of movies about family reunions at holiday time. It seems to be a truth universally acknowledged that most reunions at Christmas end happily, while most reunions at Thanksgiving end sadly. That's odd, because the way things shake down in the world of fragmented families, we tend to spend Thanksgiving with those we choose, and Christmas with those we must. If those two lists are identical in your life, your holidays must all be joyous, or all not.
Perhaps what drives audiences to films like "Happiest Season" is that certain sense of empathy. The people onscreen may or may not look like us, but we can find some relatability and understanding in their comic foibles and tragic events. The simplest situations conceal hidden traps, and by the time the story arrives at its more serious point, we fully buy into it, because these characters have so endeared themselves to us through the comedy. It's funny in an innocent screwball kind of way.
The basic setup involves Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis), who have been dating for about a year as Christmas approaches. Abby isn't into the holiday season. Her parents, who really were into it, died when she was 19, as Harper loves to point out in expository dialogue. Being a fan of the season, she wants the woman she loves to have that sensation of Christmas joy again. So, she drunkenly invites Abby home for Christmas to meet her family. Regretting the move in the cold light of day, she waits until the car ride to reveal that she isn't actually out to her family.
Harper asks Abby to keep their relationship a secret while they're at the house, with the promise that she'll finally be honest with her family once the holidays are finished. Abby agrees, although it certainly ruins her plans to propose to Harper on Christmas morning. She meets Harper's parents Tipper (Mary Steenburgen), who's more than a bit of a controlling presence in the house, and Ted (Victor Garber), a local city council member who's running for mayor on a platform of some pretty conservative platitudes. Harper's older sister is Jane (Mary Holland), an odd one who always seems to be vying for attention. The eldest sibling is Sloane (Alison Brie), formerly a successful lawyer who quit to raise her children and make custom gift baskets.
From there, the film becomes a full-on farce, complete with eccentric characters, plenty of misunderstandings, and even some close-call gags involving doors and bedroom escapades. It's everything we expect from such material. Most of the action takes place in the house, and whatever happens will have to happen before everybody heads back to the airport. That creates an artificial deadline that makes everything seem more urgent and requires that the truth be told or love declared right here and now, or not at all.
The film is warm-hearted, funny, and involving. Stewart and Davis are well-cast. But it's not completely successful; I have an idea that writer-director Clea DuVall didn't know how to end it, and so she orchestrates a final scene at a gas station that owes more to screwball comedy than to the truth of the story. Some of the characters are broader than the material requires, but one of them, Abby's gay friend John (Dan Levy), is a wonderful comic creation, and there are some scenes of him just answering the phone that are inexplicably hilarious.
Look, a great movie this is not. A pleasant holiday entertainment it is. The generosity of the film is in how DuVall presents these characters without judgment and with considerable sympathy. Harper is in love with Abby; that's not in doubt. But she is slow to understand the depth and complexity of Abby's fabrications. She's sweet, and naive, but not the brightest bulb on the tree. What defines her for the family is not the fact that she's gay, but her own concealed romanticism. By the end, we understand that although life may not give us too much, it often gives enough.
And the last one was Uncle Frank
"Uncle Frank" presents material that cries out to be handled with quiet empathy and hammers us with it. I understand what the film is trying to do, but not why it does it with such crude melodrama. The tone is all wrong for a story of homosexuality; the conclusion of which is not necessarily false, but it does feel a bit dishonest in its simplicity. When you lay it on too thick, the audience is distracted by implausibility rather than identifying with the characters.
The movie begins in 1969 with 14 year old Beth (Sophia Lillis) dreaming of someday escaping the backwater South Carolina town where she lives with her family and seeing the world. She is encouraged in this by her Uncle Frank (Paul Bettany), who did just that; he now teaches at NYU. Frank's rare returns home are marked by the obvious coldness that his father (Stephen Root) demonstrates towards him for absolutely no evident reason. Four years later, driven by Frank's encouragement, Beth is now attending NYU, and it takes only one surprise appearance at a party at Frank's apartment to discover that he is gay and living with his lover of ten years.
Wally (Peter Macdissi) is Frank's committed partner. Just as Beth is figuring out how to react to this information, the phone rings in Frank's apartment. Daddy Mac has died. It's time for Beth, Frank, and Wally to take a road trip, back to South Carolina for the funeral. That's when the perspective changes to Frank, whose cheerful mood drops upon realizing he has to return home and further declines when Beth starts asking about his romantic past. Through flashbacks, we see what has long haunted the uncle, as a teenaged Frank (played by Cole Doman) experiences his first relationship with a young man.
As you might guess, it ended tragically, and as the memories form more clearly, we understand why Mac's death, which Frank confesses to imagining so often, has brought up not relief, but only so much hidden pain. Frank wallows in self-pity and, upon arriving in his hometown, travel-sized bottles of booze. Bettany plays Frank's overt charms and silent despair with equal degrees of effectiveness, although his internalized performance is let down by director Alan Ball in the third act, when the character lets out all of that built-up pressure in drunken arguments and tearful confessionals.
The movie denies Frank of his big moment for a confirmation of Mac's deplorable nature. Instead, we're given an informative glance at the dynamics and conflicts within the extended family. Mac's wife Mammaw (Margo Martindale) is sweet and kind. Beth's father Mike (Steve Zahn) is verbally abusive toward his wife Kitty (Judy Greer) and anyone whose behavior seems out of line. The sister, Neva (Jane McNeill) is mostly quiet, which becomes odd later, when she becomes a vital figure in Frank's constant debate between keeping his secret and finally being honest with his family.
As for Frank, he stays out of the way, quietly reading on the porch as he lights up cigarettes. Lillis' promise as a young actor continues, but Beth is something of a stock audience stand-in device. Either Frank has been incredibly subtle over the years, or she can't see anything in front of her if it's more than an inch away. "I've never met a gay person before," says Beth. Oh, but she has. Frank also points out that the choir director at the First Baptist Church was also a homosexual. "But he’s so religious!" she exclaims.
"Uncle Frank" is a film that starts with promise; I liked the early dynamic between Lillis and Bettany. But it succumbs to so many clichés that anything remotely genuine gets smothered. It's a deeply frustrating movie as Ball has assembled a cast who can undeniably do deep work and then gives nothing but a shallow script. He seems merely thrashing about in a plot too transgressive for his skills. The movie looks upon his process with such skepticism that the movie doesn't even bother an attempt to explain it.
The story becomes less about the man's attempt to come to terms with those feelings and more about waiting to see what will happen. Each of the family members have at least one scene in which they can be honest with Frank, and the movie's final scene, in which they finally say what has needed to be said for a long time, is quite affecting. It's far too long of a wait for such specificity, though. "Uncle Frank" operates primarily as a message movie, and as necessary as that message might be, the movie's lack of a unique and personal approach to the material means that it's not a necessary part of the conversation.

“The next guy has his work cut out for him because my intuition, my standards, my boundaries, my wants and needs are off the charts,” she said. “Cause I’ve gotten to know me so much more. So it’s gonna be so much more narrow and specific. And I think that’s the challenge with a relationship.”
“I have just a new and increased love of life. And I’ve made decisions and changes and habits that put me in a lot better head space and there’s just a lot of things that have come together in my life over the last few months that have really been enjoyable ...”

2020.08.23 02:48 AutonInvasion CBL World Rankings: Season 3 Round 2 Final Day Headlines
| || | submitted by AutonInvasion to CelebBattleLeague [link] [comments]
Week 2 has come to it's conclusion with all matches played. This has been a dramatic week but day 4 has been less so. Day 4 Headlines - Premier League
New Bond-girl, Ana De Armas challenged the Hunger Games star in what was the first of a few matches to bear a bizarre yet satisfying result. Based on pre-match rankings, Ana was expected to score 55% and J-Law 45% of the votes. They actually received 56% and 44% respectfully and therefore their adjustments barely registered on the WR table. Mostly affected by other changes, Ana De Armas has dropped 1 place into 8th, and Lawrence has dropped 8 to 30th place. League 2
Kristen Bell could certainly take this Master of Rankings to the Good Place but equally I feel Hayley could do just At-well. Terrible puns aside, we find the second bizarre yet satisfying outcome for virtually the same reasons as the Premier League match. Kristen was expected to score 55% and Hayley 45%. The actual results were 56 and 44 respectively so again only fractional change to the scores. Kristen Bell has dropped 7 places this week into 23rd place and Hayley Atwell has dropped 27 to 246th. League 3
Bizarrely, scoring a statistical hat-trick and causing me to say 'bizarre' more times in one post than any other to date, Big Bang's big bangers on Kaley Cuoco and the musician and TV producer who could give you 13 reasons why have also been 1% out on their share of the votes in comparison to the pre-match expectations. Cuoco drops 7 places into 282nd whilst Gomez has climbed 2 into 40th place. League 4
Back to normality now for the fourth league as Olivia Munn took on Victoria Justice. Justice nearly doubled Munn's score creeping up 6 places to 14th, whilst Olivia Munn has dropped 25 to 308th. League 5A
"Save the Cheerleader, save the world" was not enough to prevent Panettiere losing to once of Star Trek's hottest science officers. Alice Eve, affected by poor performance elsewhere has dropped 291 places to 333, whilst Panettiere has dropped 167 places to 219th. League 5B
In my final use of the word bizarre, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Gillies managed a 2% difference to their expectations, slightly in Wilde's favour. Olivia still drops 1 place this week just about clinging on to the top ten by her fingernails with less than 3 points between her and 11th place Adriana Lima. Gillies climbs 9 places to 354th. Transitional League
Both of these big name stars have their followers and both deservedly so. Anne Hathaway managed to beat off contender Eva Green but only by 14 votes! The latest to don the cat-suit on the big screen has climbed 10 places this week into 9th place! Eva Green exceeding vote share expectations has also climbed 7 places albeit to reach 371st. Conference Premier A
Cult teen movie, Eurotrip's Kristen Kreuk battled The Office's Jenna Fischer in what was both their 3rd ever 1v1 battles. With Fischer gaining the deciding vote in what will be counted in the league as a draw, the scores weren't affected much on the rankings. However, due to other factors, Discher has climbed 10 places into 22nd and has climbed a whopping 298 places to reach her personal best of 56th. Conference Premier B
The final battle to affect the official rankings of round 2 saw Camila Mendes against Candice Swanepoel. With 29 votes in her favour, Swanepoel took this battle, however still dropped 7 places into 25th. Mendes tied a metaphorical rock to her leg as she jumped off the bridge of rankings plunging 316 places into 366th!
CBL Official World Rankings - End of Season 3 Round 2
This has certainly been a dramatic week for the rankings, however day 4 of this week's results is beginning to show that the rankings are working, at least from the perspective of similar celebrities in the same league.
The predicted scoring system has now demonstrated that an obvious win for a celebrity won't score a major increase in points for the winner (or decrease for the loser) as that was expected. It therefore takes a much stronger win for the predicted favourite to achieve any spectacular change to their points.
The more this system is used, the more the celebs will settle in their appropriate areas on the table. Of course, the other variables include any new voters that come along, the future matches and competitions that take place, and any new celebrities that get added. It can still be anyone's game.
How have your favourite celebrities fared this week. Any surprises or anomalies that stand out for you? https://preview.redd.it/6ulv0hbf9ni51.png?width=454&format=png&auto=webp&s=fa1b7fac0e746d3d07fc078ea2705c2e97ba88a6
Finally, as a little extra treat for statistic geeks, I have averaged the rankings of the celebs in each league. Whilst not a perfect curvature, the line graph shows an increase as we get further down the leagues. The anomaly being Conference Premier A which is based on contributor-requests - this was always going to be anomalous as there may be difference intentions behind the requests, however you would generally expect the user-submitted ones to be collectively popular. Unfortunately for Conference Premier B, this doesn't seem to be the case. https://preview.redd.it/qh140af5gni51.png?width=480&format=png&auto=webp&s=f0166c3064ae1a9e2849b37a977c7440a5d06ebd
2020.08.03 07:07 tiny_doughnut AFLW Sign and Trade: Master Post
Going to keep an eye on incoming signings and list changes as we go along, don’t hesitate to post any articles that you see and give me a poke if I haven’t updated!
Hope you’re all staying safe and well, and we’ll be back at Ikon Park for season 2021 soon 🍩❤️
Points worth remembering for this trade period:
Day 1 Wrap Day 2 Wrap Day 3 Wrap Day 4 Wrap Day 5 Wrap Day 6 Wrap Day 7 Wrap Day 8 Wrap
- The trade period runs until Wednesday 12th of August, however players can continue to be re-signed and restricted free agents (new in 2020) can move clubs until Monday, 17th of August.
- Players qualify for restricted free agent status if their club offer a lower-tier contract than they were previously on. If a rival club has a better offer, their existing club can either match or allow the player to freely move.
- Delisted free agents may still find a new home until 2pm, Friday 21 August, after which the AFLW draft order will be confirmed.
- Clubs can sign up to 27 players (including up to three rookies) before the draft, a date for which has not yet been set.
- The Victorian draft nomination rule (players could choose Geelong, Melbourne metro or Victoria) will no longer be in effect this year. The rule - which gave players a degree of choice if they were unwilling or unable to travel for the part-time competition - was only in place for Geelong's first two seasons.
- For the vast majority of these signings, I’m taking a best guess on the length unless specifically stated by the clubs in their announcements. If I’ve had any slip-ups, pls let me know so I can update!

2020.07.24 20:40 -DGES- G4 is coming back!
Sorry if this is off topic, but I think it's relevant to OWL. Tucker Roberts - Fusion and Comcast Spectacor Gaming President and son of Comcast CEO Brian L Roberts is apparently behind the effort to bring the station back on the air. I am extremely interested in what this means for the league, as Comcast is one of the biggest investors thus far.
G4 was already owned by Comcast. It feels like there could be a market in NA for G4 to become an esports hub on TV, no more espn 8 the ocho or disney channel. Wanted to see if you guys had any thoughts on this.
p.s. found out that Tucker date(s/d) Olivia Munn, former host of AOTS! Gangster shit.
What do you guys think?

2020.07.14 01:29 throwra_needfriends Why do I [28F] always get "relationship-zoned" by guys?
Alternatively titled "How to "bro-zone" guys"?
I [28F] don't have a lot of friends. The ones I do live out-of-state. And I have a really hard time making friends - a lot of it due working a lot and my awkwardness (but because of my looks, people perceive me to be social adept - more on that later)
It honestly sucks, a lot, when guys that I think are my friends ask me out. Because now I've lost a friend (when I really don't have any in the first place). There's never been a situation when I've been asked out and the friendship remained intact. And sometimes I feel (maybe unfairly) like it's almost a betrayal of the friendship - because I thought the nature of it was just platonic. And the last couple times it happened, I literally just broke down and cried in private. And sometimes they don't even ask me out, but there is weird tension? Or if there wasn't weird tension/they didn't like romantically me to begin with - prolonged exposure/time around each other seems to change that
Why do I want to be friends with men? Most of my interests tend to be very male-dominated. I work in the tech industry, I enjoy rock-climbing, I'm into cars, and very handy around the house. So most of the people I tend to meet or share my interests are men.
Have I tried being friends with women? Yes. I do have some female friends - but unfortunately when people have kids - the female half tends to all but disappear from the face of the earth. I reach out to them, but they tend to flake/cancel on me a lot or want to meet insanely early in the morning (all understandable since they have kids and all). I've also started watching reality tv shows, wearing dresses, and picked up (painfully) stereotypical female interests like celebrity gossip so I'd have stuff to talk about - obviously that didn't work because not all women enjoy those things. I've even made a Bumble BFF profile, but the jury is still out on that... I'll let you all know.
If I had a bf, the easy answer is to just bring them up in convo asap. And then another strategy I've tried before is just talking about my dates, in a funny anecdotal way. The problem with this is (1) I'm not sure how appropriate it is to bring up (bad) date stories at work and (2) I'm in a phase where I'm trying to take a break from dating and just focusing on myself. So there's not an easy way to say "I'm not interested/not available" casually.
I'm NOT blaming guys/men for shooting their shot. I always encourage people/my guy friends to go for it - and that the worst people can do is say "no". BUT is there something that *I'm* doing to put out signals/vibes that I'm interested in or available to date? Because how do I stop? And I feel like it can't just be my looks - because I have a sister who I look nearly identical to. And she is more outgoing, gregarious, popular, a self-described asshole - and seems to have no problems just being "bros" with male friends. Maybe she's just setting better boundaries? We've talked, but still am having trouble pinpointing what works - because our personalities are so different, so how we interact with others is like day and night.
Things I do that may contribute?:
- Look at people with doe-eyes when speaking to them. / Maintain prolonged eye contact during conversations. - Remember facts about them. - Sometimes I have nervous energy and people feel like I need to be "saved" or "protected". I've been told I come off as "vulnerable" sometimes. - Ask for their help, opinion, exterpertise.... idk how to get around this, but ppl tend to be interested in me after this kind of event? - My hugs/physical touches (if I do at all) are very gentle. (I've read (in a yoga teacher article) that when adjusting people's form - a firm touch is necessary not to creep people out - so maybe the same principle is at play?)
While I just feel like I am of average attractiveness, I've been told I look like Olivia Munn - I do share similar features. But my personality is softer, probably more like Dakota Johnson (in interviews anyways)? While not shy, I am soft-spoken, gentle, outwardly caring, and people feel comfortable opening up to me. And I take pride in making people feel better about themselves and being an encouraging person. People/guys have told me that I seem "unaware" of how attractive I am or that I come off as a late-bloomer. Someone who is really nice for how attractive they are. (And now that I sound completely self-absorbed...)
I can't change much about my looks and I'm not complaining about it. I won't lie and say that there aren't upsides, but the downside is that I'm terribly lonely...
Any advice? Or concrete actions/phrases to use?

2020.07.05 20:18 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters D-F in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'
Below is a rundown of letters D-F of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/
). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf D-F
d’abo, Henri & Tatiana: John Henry Erland d’Abo is the grandson of the 9th Duke of Rutland (more info on what these titles all mean can be found here: https://www.debretts.com/expertise/essential-guide-to-the-peerage/what-is-the-peerage/
). Tatjana is his wife. Henry is the chairman of Wilton Payments Ltd, a private company that helps with financial intermediation. He and Christopher O’Neill are the primary shareholders of the company. O’Neill is Tatjana’s half-brother, a British-American financier, and husband to Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland
, a daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden
. d’abo, Mrs. Jennifer: British entrepreneur who passed away in 2003. d’Abo was once married to Peter Cadbury from the family of the famous chocolate company. Peter did not work for the company, but he and Jennifer d’Abo had a son together. Their son, Joel Cadbury, became owner of the Groucho Club, a watering hole often frequented by famous people. Three years after Cadbury sold the club, their website became the center of a child pornography scandal (link to story: https://www.sott.net/article/242698-Groucho-Clubs-website-forum-hit-by-child-pornography-scandal)
D’Alessie, Carman: This name turned up no results, however, we can safely assume that this is actually Carmen D’Alessio, the international nightlife guru who helped spawn Studio 54 and other famous clubs. She is a party legend with countless celebrity ties.
d’Arenberg, Prince Pierre: Family lineage can be traced back 1000 years. European royalty. Extremely wealthy not because of his ties to nobility, but because his mother, Margaret Bedford, was an heiress to Standard Oil (Exxon).
d’Uzes, Jacques De crussol: The 17th Duke of Uzes. Not much else found on him. Margaret Bedford married into his family shortly after her divorce with Prince Charles Auguste Armand d’Arenberg, father of Prince Pierre d’Arenberg.
Dabbagh, Amr A.: A wealthy businessman/investor from Saudi Arabia. Dabbagh recently faced corruption charges but settled with the Saudi Arabian government. Has ties all around the world, as he is a member of and/or serves/served on the boards of the World Economic Forum, London Business School, Cleveland Clinic, Jeddah Economic Forum, Harvard Institute for Social and Economic Policy in the Middle East, etc.
Dahl, Sophie: ‘90s-’00s model-turned-author and maternal granddaughter of famous author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, etc.) Dahl has been seen in photos with Ghislaine Maxwell.
Darrin, Drake: Not much information found. Darrin runs an investment group out of Greenwich, Connecticut. Lived about a mile away from Epstein in NYC.
Dartmouth, William: The 10th Earl of Dartmouth. Member of the European Parliament from 2009-2019. Became a stepbrother of Princess Diana when his mother embarked on a 2nd marriage with Diana’s father, John Spencer.
Davies, Jeff: Most likely refers to the current CFO for Legal & General Group. Davies was once a senior partner at Ernst & Young.
Davies, David & Linda: Sir David Davies is a wealthy banker and businessman with deep connections. A family friend introduced him to David Rockefeller back in the ‘60s, which helped him get his start. Linda, daughter of a Chinese-Malaysian tycoon, is his second wife. They were married for over 20 years but are now divorced.
Davis, Michael: A current partner at N3 Media, Davis has had many jobs. He started out working at CAA, one of the top agencies in the world. Check out this list of celebrities and athletes that they represent (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Creative_Artists_Agency_clients
). Davis then went on to produce movies and TV shows before transitioning to digital media.
Day, Nick and Heather: Not much to be found on these two. There are several articles that speak of their ranch in Kenya. Apparently, it is a fairly popular spot where people stay to get some rest and solitude.
de Andrade, Marcelo: An international banker (not the serial killer) who lives within one mile of Epstein’s mansion in NYC. de Andrade was married to Lisa Bjornson, a successful banker and higher-up at J.P. Morgan Securities back in the ‘90s.
de Baecque, Patrick: de Baecque has his hands in online news media (lefigaro.fr) in France. de Baecque was named Director of Sales and Operations at Dolead in 2017. Dolead is a company that is involved with online marketing.
de Cabrol, Milly: A high-end interior designer based out of NYC.
De Cadenet, Alen: Alain de Cadenet is one of Epstein’s many Formula One contacts. Someone here probably knows more about de Cadenet, but he used to be a racecar driver and now works for ESPN and the Speed Channel as a host.
de Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine: A French princess who used to have a penchant for partying. The only daughter of Charles Henri, 11th Duke of Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine was one of 500 guests invited to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday back in 2000. Hermine got in a motorcycle crash a month ago that put her in a coma. De Georgiou, Anouska: A former British Playboy model who claims that Epstein groomed and raped her as a teenager when she met him in the 1990s. Her experience with Epstein is detailed in this article (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9974171/anouska-de-georgiou-jeffrey-epstein-rape-claims-nbc-playboy/). She speaks about how Epstein was able to lure her into the life as a young girl.
De Soto, Fernando: Very difficult to pinpoint. Best guess is that this is the Head of Real Estate at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Madrid, Spain. I could be wrong, but this is the one that made the most sense.
Dedieu, Jean & Paulette: Nothing found.
Del Bono, Luca: Co-founder of Quintessentially Group, a hospitality group that specializes in leisure, travel, and tourism.
Dell, Adam: Brother of Michael Dell (Founder of Dell Technologies and 27th ranked richest person in the world in Forbes’s BS rankings that discount the elite families). Adam is a venture capitalist who has a baby with Padma Lakshmi.
Deluca Dina & Fouard Chartuuni: Fouad Chartouni is the president of Kensico Properties, a real-estate holding company in New York. Chartouni and his brother own the Lowell Hotel in New York. The Lowell is a high-end 5 star hotel that caters largely to film executives, fashion design CEOs, publishing CEOs, and financial CEOs. Madonna lived there for nearly a year after breaking up with Sean Penn. Dina Deluca is Chartouni’s wife. She used to work as an assistant in film and television, but now focuses on her DDC28 brand of bath and beauty products.
Derby Earl / Cntess Cass & Ted: Edward Stanley (known informally as Teddy) is the 19th Earl of Derby. Caroline Stanley is Ted’s wife. She was a socialite during the ‘90s and is the daughter of Robin Neville, the 10th Baron Braybrooke.
Derby, Ros & Jonathan: No info found. Di Vita, Charlotte: Best known for her handcrafted teapots, di Vita started off as a volunteer who helped raise funds to help poor people, most notably in Kenya, Thailand, and Brazil. She helped locals grow food and even helped build 3 schools (37 teachers, 1100 students) through a charity, Trade plus Aid, in Bawku, Ghana, in 1995.
Dickenson, Debbie: Supermodel and actress. Sister of the more famous Janice Dickinson. Dickinson, Janice: One of the most successful models of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dickinson has been occasionally labeled as the first ever supermodel. Opened her own modeling agency in 2005. Ironically, she accused Bill Cosby of raping her back in 1982 and wrote about it in her memoir. When called to the stand during Cosby’s trial, Cosby’s lawyer pointed out the differences between Dickinson’s testimony and her account of the incident in her memoir. Dickinson said that her accusations of Cosby raping her while under oath were the absolute truth, while she took “poetic license” with some of the details in her memoir.
Dietrich Marc Antoine and Cath: Baron Marc-Antoine de Dietrich is a businessman. He resigned as director of Vossloh Cogifer in 2011.
Dietrich, Paul & Laura: Paul is Chief Investment Officer of Fairfax Global Markets LLC. They manage investments for private investors, retirement funds, and private institutions.

There is a great article detailing Dubin and his wife’s relationship with Epstein here: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/09/glenn-dubin-epstein-questions). Summary of the article: Dubin was the first one accused by Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre. Rinaldo Rizzo, Dubin’s chef, testified that sexual activities occurred between Dubin and a 15-year-old girl, which led to him and his wife quitting as personal chefs of the Dubins. Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, dated Epstein for a long time before she married Dubin. The couple was so close with Epstein that even after Epstein was convicted in 2008 and officially a registered sex offender, they invited him to Thanksgiving dinner and wrote a letter to his probation officer that they trusted him around their children, who were all minors at the time. Multiple sources say Epstein was actually their children’s Godfather, but a spokesman for the couple denies it. Glen Dubin and Epstein helped each other with their business ties, as well. Dubin also had other ties with Epstein (personal friends with Les Wexner and others). Dubin and his wife are definitely major players in the Epstein saga.

Duesing claims Epstein tried to hire him to work on Epstein’s home on Epstein’s private island back in 2002, but Duesing declined because he didn’t like Epstein. Says he doesn’t even know how Epstein got his number in the first place. Perhaps it was Duesing’s ties with the royal family. He tells stories of getting the Queen Mother drunk, being close with Lord and Lady Lloyd, working on the home of Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi, Princess Diana’s boyfriend who died in the car crash with her. Duke of York: Prince Andrew, the toe-sucking pedophile (allegedly), himself. Photographed with victims, Epstein, and Maxwell many times over. His reputation has been completely crushed.

2020.05.06 08:03 LAnative12345 Can we talk about ageism in Bachelor Nation, but more specifically, in this sub?
Now that I've charmed you all with my stupid-ass polls...
...let's have a discussion.
Something I've noticed in this sub recently is ageist remarks about some BN members (both men and women), and the infantilization of others, esp women.
Let me start off by saying, Madi Militia, please down your pitchforks! Matt James stans, I come in peace! Full disclosure: I'm a mid 40s single woman, if that data helps you. I don't have a cent of debt. I only tell you that last factoid to illustrate that being older isn't always a bad thing, aside from the benefits of life experiences and perspective. 😘 There are tangible benefits to being on this earth longer, as I've had more time to fix things that I screwed up in my 20s. 😜
I've noticed when people want to insult Nick, or more recently, Clare, they use the "old" insults: over the hill, grandpa, grandma, etc.
I've also noticed that when Madi is being criticized or critiqued, there's a certain amount of pearl clutching about how she's a "girl" and also a "very young." It seems to be especially egregious when someone "over the hill" like Nick criticizes a "girl" like Madi because he's going to be 40 in September and she's only 24 (bday was in March).
Strangely, even though Rachel is 35 and has criticized Madi, no one has called her "over the hill." Her husband Bryan is 40 now and I haven't seen anyone call him "over the hill" (perhaps because he hasn't insulted Madi publicly? Lol)
In the thread about Nick DMing Olivia Munn (who is 38 or 39) there were many comments about how thirsty Nick is, even though many people also bitch about how he doesn't date women his own age.
On Hannah's season, there were several 24 year olds (Luke P., Dylan, Connor, JPJ). Hannah was 24 during filming. Jed was 25. I've seen Dylan and JPJ called immature and childish, hell I've even participated. But the Dylan defenders never say that we should leave him alone due to him being a "boy."
Why is there such infantilization of the women of BN? Why can't an older man criticize a young woman? If Simon Cowell criticizes a young woman's singing, is it unacceptable partially because he's an older man and she's a "girl"? Should we only be criticized and critiqued by people within a few years of our age?
To be fair, Barb was also criticized for being a grown woman going after a "girl" (Madi) who is "so much younger than her."
Nick and Clare could also be seen as 2 sides of the same coin. Nick didn't enter BN until he was 33, and Clare was 32 on Juan Pablo's season. Both have been on many BN shows, but Nick has stayed in while Clare's largely gone back to her life each time.
When Clare criticized Matt's social media usage, she was deemed "grandma" by many. I believe that that's mostly because she's 39, but also to much lesser degree, because she's simply not on social media that much. Anyone who's followed Clare knows she doesn't live her life on the 'gram. It's never been her thing.
On the flipside, Nick is insulted for being TOO wrapped up in BN, that he needs to "let it go" because he's "over the hill" and stop "obsessing" over Bachelor stuff (even though he literally has a podcast that partially covers BN stuff and it's his JOB to state opinions in a controversial way for listens and ad revenue). I don't know about y'all but 98% of the time I listen to his pod, it's for Bach content. It's not for Questions with Nick or interviews with Nikki Glaser!
I would love everyone's input and perspectives on this. I find it fascinating, this whole thing. Why is Madi grown up enough to go on the Bachelor, where marriage is the goal, but she's a "girl"? Hannah B turning 25 in September but I've never seen anyone here call her a "girl." Is it because Madi is a virgin that we think of her as a "girl"? Colton was a virgin and we joked that he looked like Boss Baby, but that was just a cartoon joke. No one ever called Colton a "boy" on here that I've ever seen, unless they were calling him a "little boy" as an insult. It was definitely never used as a defense of why Colton shouldn't be criticized.
Merriam Webster says that a girl is a female child from birth to adulthood, and a boy is a male child from to adulthood. Madi is a girl but Luke P. is a man? Madi was 23 during taping and Luke P and Connor were both 24. Ever seen Connor called a boy?
Why is this?

2020.04.14 00:25 OldmanRevived I saw two movies (Tigertail, Love Wedding Repeat)
First up was Tigertail
Alan Yang's "Tigertail" does not tell a story so much as circle the materials; our lives are not plotted, but happen to us. We are the slate upon which others write our story, and at the end, we possess the book but are mystified by those who wrote it. The story is a compressed version of how life has a way of repeating itself, how we copy our own behavior, how coincidences happen because we make them easy, and how although present moments remain insubstantial, we visit them later with great clarity and the happy prospect of being home again.
We take a glance into the very active life of a young child, Pin-Jui (Tzi Ma). He lives in Taiwan and comes from a poor family. His father died when he was a year old, so his mother sent him to live with his grandparents who work in a field. The movie's opening sequence has Pin-Jui running through vast fields of rice, thinking he sees his mother in the distance. The camera follows Pin-Jui as he runs, waving his arms and calling out to the mirage of his mother. At home, his harried grandmother hides him in a cupboard when the soldiers hunting for dissidents show up at her door unannounced. Since it is illegal to stay anywhere without registering first, the presence of her grandson endangers them all.
Afterwards, Pin-Jui sulks over his absent mother. As he pictures it, she would come like a rope let down from above to draw him out of the abyss. In the meantime, he meets a similarly aged girl named Yuan Lee from a wealthy family. They spend an idyllic few years together, but after he returns to Huwei, he loses touch with her. Years later, after Pin-Jui and Yuan have grown into young adults (Hong Chi-Lee and Yo-Hsing Fang), they reconnect in Huwei and begin an intense, impetuous romance. Pin-Jui feels they can never marry, however, because of the economic disparity of their families.
But Pin-Jui has plans for himself nonetheless. He dreams of going to America: there, he will make enough money so he can support his mother. During this time, he works at the same factory as his mother, Minghua (Yang Kuei-mei), doing hard manual labor. The conditions are hazardous, and the hours are long, but they remain close. Pin-Jui has grown to be a fountain of warmth and understanding. He has few insights into his life, but he is an earnest citizen, a hard worker, and there is sometimes a twinkle in his eye. At night, he goes out to a bar and dances with Yuan. The Taiwanese pop songs on the record player will become important tokens for Pin-Jiu later in life. They sit by a river under the moonlight, their arms around each other, figures appearing out of the fog, lights traced on the wet stones, pausing now and again to kiss and be solemn. It's one of those experiences that seals a marriage.
However, their fate is not sealed. When Pin-Jiu's boss says he will finance Pin-Jiu's move to America, but only if Pin-Jiu marries his daughter Zhenzhen (Kunjue Li), whom Pin-Jiu barely knows, it's an offer the young man just cannot refuse. The desire to support his mother is too strong. He and his new wife move to the Bronx, where life is confusing, chaotic and lonely. They are not lovers, but prisoners. Pin-Jui is struggling to inquire into how, at such a time, he could have allowed himself to be carried away by an impulse of happiness. As the timeline jumps forward, it becomes clear that his actions are generally dictated by chance rather than based on any formal plan.
We follow Pin-Jui in the present, where he has grown to become a taciturn elderly man. His American-born workaholic daughter Angela (Christine Ko) is driving him back to his home. Keeping very quiet so as not to disturb him, she looks at him with tender respect, wishing to penetrate the mysteries of his superior mind. She has just recently struggled with a breakup, and he has no idea how to relate to her except as a stern, exacting father. How did it end up like this? We'll see as Yang's plot begins to unfold: it seems all the more obscure because there are intentional gaps left between passages. And so all the odd changes which take place in Pin-Jui's life are steeped in a mystery to us.
I fell into a sympathetic reverie with "Tigertail." Alan Yang has no profound point to pound home. His story doesn't need an ending. He accepts all the characters just as they are. The movie finds the right tone to present its bittersweet wisdom. It's relaxed. It's content to observe and listen. It's about how the alternatives to loneliness can themselves be thin soup. It doesn't overstay its welcome. The look and style of the movie pushes back and forth between the vivid, ruddy, charming colors of 16mm and crisp, clean digital. If there are any moments in the screenplay that feel a little too familiar, they're saved by the charm of the actors.
Like Pin-Jui, the path we are taking will be engraved in our memory by the excitement induced by strange surroundings, by unaccustomed activities, by the conversations we have had and the farewells exchanged. We still bow in wonder toward the first loves of our adolescence. We do not miss them, do not wish ourselves to recapture them, do not regret the present but the past. The point is that they are gone, and soon all will be gone. Memories, their objects, ourselves. The subject of "Tigertail" is nothing less than human life and how it works. Using a passive Pin-Jui, it encompasses every life and how it copes and fails. Think about it a little and, my god, it's about you. Whoever you are.
Next up was Love Wedding Repeat
Let's all be thankful that society is generally, if not entirely, free of such farcical types as the ones played in "Love Wedding Repeat." And let's hope the screen will not be burdened for too much longer with such drivel. Here is a prime example of the magnification of absurdity in a supposedly adult person in order to coax a few low-level laughs. You watch it with the feeling that the director, Dean Craig, had a huge stock of jokes and setups at his disposal, but too little space to analyze it thoroughly. He wants to have a lot of things happening at once, but somehow, he just never pulls it all together; the bits and pieces remain separate, unresolved, not adding up to anything.
In the opening scene, as the narrator billed as The Oracle (Penny Ryder) rambles on about love and chance, Jack (Sam Claflin) is trying to muster up the courage to kiss Dina (Olivia Munn), his sister's American roommate, before he leaves to return home to London. The both of them came to Rome to visit his sister, Hayley (Eleanor Tomlinson) for the weekend. But, before he can kiss Dina, the movie takes its chance to bring back our old friend, the Interrupter. That's the guy who doesn't have anything better to do with his time, and so he just waltzes around and tries to find a date to ruin. I can't wait for a movie to be made where the Interrupter tries to make a move on a girl, and then gets a taste of his own medicine. True, the result wouldn't be all that hilarious, but it would at least be something I haven't seen before.
Three years later, Jack is at Hayley's wedding. Bryan (Joel Fry), the maid of honor, is an aspiring actor more concerned about getting introduced to Italian film director Vitelli. Wait - why is a film director at the wedding of a complete stranger? Who invited him? It doesn't matter. He's there only because, for some odd reason, Bryan is in dire need of a story ark. But never mind, we're already off of the subject, which will be hard to stay on. There is not a spark of chemistry between Jack and Dina, although the plot clearly requires them to fall in love. The problem with Jack is that although he's a cool dude in London, the moment he finds himself with Dina again, he reverts to hapless dweebdom.
Jack looks for any way to make an opening, but wouldn't you know, that Oracle from above is watching over his every move, and continues to throw distractions in his way. Hayley has seated all the English people on the English table, which also includes Amanda (Freida Pinto), Jack's nightmare of an ex-girlfriend. Amanda has come to the wedding with her boyfriend Chaz (Allan Mustafa), with whom she has clear commitment issues (he proposed six months earlier and she has not responded yet). Other friends of Hayley's include Bryan's clingy ex, Rebecca (Aisling Bea), and the socially awkward Sidney (Tim Key), who arrives bearing all of the proper attire with one additional bonus: a kilt. Why is he wearing a kilt? There's your answer.
And then you have the wedding crasher, Marc (Jack Farthing), Hayley's old school classmate who arrives at the venue high on cocaine and plans to ruin the wedding. Hayley confronts Marc and asks him to leave. After proving himself to be unmanagable, Hayley asks Jack to drug Marc with her sleeping drops once everyone is seated for dinner, but some children mess around and rearrange the seating order. The results develop with deadening finality as the movie marches on. Our interest declines as we watch these characters of limited intelligence wander through the lonely wastes of ancient and boring formulas. No one involved seems to have had any conviction that it could be great.
What this movie does to humor shouldn't be done to a dog, although it probably has been. When he is funny, Sam Claflin is very funny. But he needs something to push against. He is a reactor. His best screen characters are passive-aggressive: They insinuate themselves unwanted into ongoing scenarios. Here he's the center of the show, and all of the other characters are carefully tailored to fit precisely into the requirements of his misunderstanding. He has no one to bounce off of, but since the entire movie is so consistently crude, it doesn't make much difference. For the description of sexual subject matter, normally only two registers are available: medical, or obscene.
It was Plato who said that in the ideal state, comedy should be tightly controlled. Under Craig's wayward direction, ''Love Wedding Repeat'' has been transformed into a feature-length blur. There's no special logic at work. The performances are good, but the film has been assembled without an overriding sense of humor and style. It remains in bits and pieces. It's the cracked screenplay that gets in the way of the straight and narrow farcical narrative line. If the movie does nothing else - and it doesn't - it proves that farces don't need epiphanies, especially anticlimactic ones.

2020.04.08 13:39 xmadison84 [TOMT][Video] Short Video About a Nice Girl Being Dumped for being too nice, but she leaves at the end.
Ok so this short video was from 6-7 years ago and it was made by one of those website that produces a lot of videos (college humor, funny or die, buzzfeed, etc.) I just don't remember which one. It starts with a good looking girl (she reminded me of Olivia Munn) who goes to surprise her BF of one year and while he is in the shower, she decorates his place with balloons for planets (since they had their first date at the planetarium). She notices a letter on his desk, and it's a letter he was writing to her about leaving her. She pretends she did not see it, and greets her BF. They then play a game of: if you broke up with me, what would be the reason? His reason was because she was too nice, and he could not keep up with that. Anyways, they end up staying at his place, sleep together. And in the middle of the night, she wakes up, writes him a letter and leaves him.

2018.11.28 02:49 Irrationable Character deaths in the original/leaked script for The Predator *SPOILERS*
So about a month ago I got my hands on a copy of The Predator script dated 4/17/16. This script appears to be the version of the film described in the test screening leaks earlier this year. Whole chunks of the script were retained in the final film, but a large portion was either scrapped/reshot (the entire third act, additional dialogue regarding the predator’s gene splicing, and the scene between Olivia Munn and the sex offender) or was never filmed (Arnold’s cameo at the end).
While I didn’t feel like writing up an in-depth comparison between this script and what we got, I thought it would be interesting to detail the major character deaths in this version of the script versus what we got in the final film.
One thing worth noting is that the version of the loonies in this script is slightly different than both the test screening leak and the final film. Lynch is completely absent from this version, Nettles is referred to the “hero” loony and has Tourette’s syndrome instead of Baxley, and a Vietnam veteran called Flyboy serves as the team’s pilot. We are also introduced to a wheelchair-bound member later on in the film named Cutter, who serves as the owner of the RV and the source of the weapons that the loonies use after they escape the Stargazer base. He disappears completely in the final act.
McKenna’s Squadmates – after McKenna retrieves find the Fugitive unconscious at the crash site and takes its gear, the Fugitive awakes and kills BOTH men off screen. McKenna hears them die over the radio and returns to the crash site to find them dismembered.
Dr. Colwell – the equivalent of Sean Keyes in this version of the script (same dialogue as Keyes in final film). The Fugitive decapitates him with a scalpel and cuts of his hand, then mimics his voice and uses his head/hand to escape the containment room.
Stoner in House – Dies the same way as in the finished film. Rory’s mask blows him away along with his house.
Fugitive Predator – Killed by the Upgrade in nearly the exact same manner as the final film. Only in this script, he voluntarily engages with the Upgrade while the loonies escape, rather than being surprised and pulled through a window. Still doesn’t put up much of a fight, ends up with his head and spine ripped out.
Nettles – while attempting to rescue Rory from Traeger’s men, it is revealed that the Upgrade has hidden itself onboard the “Ark” ship that Traeger was transporting from its crash site. The Upgrade releases the predator hybrids on board the Ark, one of which impales Nettles through the windshield of the vehicle he was using to escape the chaos.
Traeger – after the Upgrade and the hybrids escape the ark into the Florida woods, Traeger and his remaining men capture McKenna and the loonies. Right as Traeger is about to execute McKenna, he is shot in the head by General Woodhurst (Edward James Olmos’ character). Woodhurst later states that he killed Traeger for going rogue and trying to sell predator technology to the highest bidder instead of turning it over to the US government.
Woodhurst and co – Woodhurst takes the loonies to Area 52 and introduces them to the two “emissary” predators (Casey, Rory, and Cutter are left with the Ark as it is prepped for transport). The Upgrade and the hybrids storm the base in an attempt to kill the emissaries and collect trophies/DNA. Woodhurst and his men remain on the base to hold off the attack while the loonies escape in an APC convoy, and are presumably killed.
Baxley – as the hybrids attack the convoy, one of them leaps onto the APC and flays Baxley before tossing his corpse over the side and into the road.
Coyle – the same hybrid that killed Baxley proceeds to pounce on top of Coyle. He fires into its head and manages to kill it, but not before it “chews his spine out” and collapses dead on top of him.
Hybrids – After hijacking the Ark and ejecting Casey from it using an escape pod, Rory activates the self-destruct collars on the hybrids. One of the hybrids survives the self-destruct, although it is heavily wounded, and Casey kills it by ripping its spine out.
Emissary Predators – One of the hybrid explosions wrecks the APC and sends everyone flying. Both emissaries are killed by the Upgrade via blasts from its gauntlet while they are regaining their composure. They barely even know what’s going on before they are blown away, and never engage in combat with the Upgrade.
Flyboy – Dies in the same manner as Nettles in the final film. When the forcefield around the Ark activates, his legs are cut off at the knees and his body goes tumbling from the ship.
Nebraska – as the Upgrade pilots the Ark away after abducting Rory, the ship is fired upon by two F22s. Nebraska is trapped outside the forcefield and is incinerated as the Ark passes through the fireball created by a missile detonating near the Ark. McKenna is forced to watch, directly below him as he burns away.
F22 Pilot – Forced to eject when his plane is hit by the Ark’s defenses. After being thrown from the Ark mid-flight, McKenna manages to grab ahold of the pilot’s chair as he parachutes into the swamp next to the crashed Ark. During the final fight with the Upgrade, the pilot opens fire with his sidearm while still stuck in a tree, and is disintegrated by a plasma blast.
Upgrade Predator – dies almost exactly like he does in the film. Rory activates the crashed ship’s forcefield and slices off one of his arms. Casey jumps on his back and slices of his dreadlocks, disorientating him (the dreadlocks are revealed to be sensory organs earlier in the film). McKenna and the F22 pilot open fire on him. The lobotomized predator dog shows up with a self-destruct collar that Casey took off it earlier in the film. McKenna uses the gauntlet on the Upgrade’s severed arm to pin the collar to its leg, and Casey detonates it. After a final exchange with the mangled predator, it lunges at Rory and McKenna puts two bullets in its eye.

Written Reviews Jordan Mintzer - The Hollywood Reporter
It’s a totally gonzo method that mostly pays off because of all the snappy dialogue, gross-out gags and tongue-in-cheek camaraderie of the cast, with Boyd Holbrook proving to be a capable lead and Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane and Olivia Munn providing worthy, and often funny, accomplices. Dennis Harvey - Variety
Alas, within the Black oeuvre, “The Predator” lands more between “The Last Boy Scout” and “Iron Man 3,” being a mixture of the flippant-knucklehead-machismo species with frantic comic-book action. Though there’s gore and creatures aplenty, say goodbye to any remaining horror element in this series. Now we’ve got a sort of mashup of Indiana Jones, “Jurassic Park,” and a flying-kung-fu movie, no longer scary in the least but hella loud and busy. Chris Evangelista - Slash Film
Black stages that action in a clear, highly-entertaining way. There are spaceship chases, and crashes. There are shootouts galore. Trucks flip in blasts of fire. The Predator’s movements are swift and brutal, and Black revels in the gore. Limbs fly, guts splash, and heads roll. It sounds ghastly, but almost all of the violence is played for laughs. The Predator is no longer a scary unstoppable force. It’s a punchline. There’s also plenty of fan service – at least two classic lines from Predator are repurposed here, to (mostly) amusing effect. Hugh Armitage - Digital Spy
Is this bent towards comedy a problem? Purists (do Predator purists even exist?) might find fault. Some may long for the franchise to return to its serious roots. After you exit the theater into the real world, the flaws of The Predator become more and more apparent. The plot doesn’t make sense. A lot of the jokes fall flat. There’s a pointless sequel set-up. But while you’re watching the movie, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the fun. Black and company are having a blast here, and it’s infectious.
The Predator is a flawed actioner, but a strong cast and some Shane Black magic give it a sparkle that has been lacking from recent attempts to revive the killer aliens. It's not Black at his best, but it's a fun diversion as long as you don't think about it too hard. Jim Vejvoda - IGN
The Predator is, in many ways, a throwback to what made the 1987 original so beloved: it includes many of the same elements, such as the rowdy camaraderie amongst absurdly macho protagonists, a debauched wit, and a primal battle between man and beast. It’s a shame when everything splinters apart in the haphazard and shoddy-looking last half-hour, largely derailing what began as a promising entry in the wildly inconsistent franchise. Simon Brew - Den of Geek
A bad misfire this, particularly disappointing given the pedigree of who’s behind the camera. I think I may have got that across. Save your money. Buy a Predator boxset, The Nice Guys, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Lethal Weapon. Every single one of those is worth your time to some degree. Matthew Leyland - Total Film
What Black’s movie really has going for it is pace. It starts with a crash, followed swiftly by a bang and vast swathes of wallop. The relentlessness doesn’t allow you any time to catch a yawn, but it’s also not too conducive to tension or suspense. Frantic editing gets the pulse racing less often than the eyeballs spraining, especially during the dark, forest-set finale. The kill count’s close to infinity, yet only a few of the deaths are truly memorable; shout-out to a nicely sticky riff on one monster’s use of invisibility. Victor Stiff - The Playlist
While “The Predator” is no threat to surpass its predecessor in the action movie pantheon, it presents a distinct and satisfying flavor. Credit goes to Black for not playing it safe and pandering to audiences by repeating all the same beats we’ve already seen. Insanely violent, packed with off-color jokes, and of course, sentimentality, “The Predator” is one of the most enjoyable popcorn flicks hitting multiplexes this fall season. David Ehrlich - Indiwire
Despite a handful of ingenious kills, “The Predator” doesn’t feel like a throwback that’s stitching the past into the present — it feels like a confused and desperate reboot that’s totally lost in time. For a film about celebrating the things that make people different, it’s a shame that Shane Black’s latest studio offering feels like it could have been made by committee, and that it probably was. Emma Stefansky - Uproxx
The Predator is probably not worth your time, and I’m surprised actors of the caliber of Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, and Boyd Holbrook even thought it was worth their time. On a surface level, the script makes a meager amount of sense, as long as you just shut up and don’t think about the plot too much. None of the characters are particularly interesting, and some are downright offensive. (More on that in a bit.) To top it all off, the digital effects, which this film relies heavily on, look only slightly better than a well-constructed video game. Perri Nemiroff - Collider
The Predator is a disappointment for someone with their fingers crossed for a worthy Predator sequel, but where this new installment could find a home is in the outlandish alien action movie realm. That feels more like a backhanded compliment than anything, but it’s a quality that did keep me entertained from start to finish, and sent me on my way thinking it might be fun to catch it again with a group of friends and a big beer in my hand. Katie Walsh - Nerdist
The Predator starts out strong, and there are some genuinely funny lines, but it nosedives quickly. Black loses all control over the tone and the pace, which ruins the elements that we might actually care about—story and character. It’s a damn shame to think about what could have been with The Predator. Jake Cole - Slant
Even an act of noble sacrifice late in the film has a faintly goofy tone to it, reflective of Shane Black's streak of puckish nihilism, and that attitude makes him a perfect fit for this franchise. Benjamin Lee - Guardian
Black populates his film with recognisable tropes and character types as well a grand throwback score, and there's a certain charm in his ability to conjure up the past without resorting to pastiche. Brian Tallerico - RogerEbert.com
The Predator” is a fun, brutal, fighting machine that wastes no time getting down to business—not unlike its title character. It’s not big on wasted dialogue or too many attempts at meta humor, playing both like an homage/throwback film to the action of the ‘80s and something that feels new and fresh. There’s nothing pretentious or whimsical here as we so often see in films that almost parody ‘80s action instead of trying to figure out why these movies have endured in the first place. It’s easy to mimic or mock something. It’s much harder to ask why the first “Predator” captured lightning in a bottle and then try to catch it again. With a fantastic cast and razor-sharp pacing, the fact is that this is what you want from a movie called “The Predator.” Jonathan Barkan - Dread central
The Predator is a genuinely fun movie, but it’s impossible to overlook the issues that plague nearly every moment. Poor story choices and strange, if not outright silly, character decisions result in an experience that will ultimately leave audiences feeling a great amount of “meh”.

2018.08.31 14:17 AnonymousPachyderm [TRADUCTION] Le mythe de l'homme empoté
Ce post est une traduction de l'article de Lili Loofbourow, The myth of the male bumbler
, traduit par thikoril
avec quelques corrections de moi. L'article date de novembre 2017 mais on le trouve vraiment, vraiment juste. Nous n'avons pas conservé les liens hypertextes mais ils sont nombreux dans le texte d'origine et renvoient aux différentes affaires liées à Me Too référencées ici.
Le mythe de l'homme empoté
Il y a une épidémie d'hommes empotés.
Ces hommes ont, si le type ne vous est pas familier, les yeux écarquillés et éternellement confus. Quelle est la différence, se demande l'homme empoté, entre une conversation amicale avec une collègue et le fait de frotter son pénis devant elle ? Entre groomer une fille de 14 ans au tribunal des enfants et lui demander de sortir avec elle ? Le monde déconcerte l'empoté. Il est étonné de découvrir qu'il avait un quelconque pouvoir sur qui que ce soit, sans même parler du fait qu'on ait pu penser
qu'il l'utilise. Quel pouvoir ?
dit-il. Qui, moi ?
L'empoté est le premier à admettre qu'il est mauvais à son travail. Prenez le procureur général Jeff Sessions, qui a témoigné mardi à propos de l'équipe de politique étrangère de la campagne Trump, qu'il a dirigée et dont on sait maintenant qu'elle a été en contact avec des agents russes : "Nous n'étions pas un groupe très efficace." Ou Dave Becky, le gérant de l'humoriste disgracié Louis C.K. (qui a avoué la semaine dernière avoir commis une inconduite sexuelle). Becky avoue que " jamais, au cours de toutes ces années, personne n'a mentionné les autres incidents qui ont été signalés récemment ". On pourrait soutenir que personne n'aurait dû avoir besoin
de les mentionner ; après tout, en tant que manager de Louis C.K., n'était-ce pas le travail de Becky de garder un oeil sur les secrets de son client ? La défense de Becky ? C'est un empoté ! ¯_(ツ)_/¯
L'empoté ne sait pas des choses, même des choses dont il a été directement informé. Jon Stewart a été "abasourdi" par les révélations au sujet de Louis C.K., alors même que nous avons pu voir une vidéo de quelqu'un lui posant l'année dernière. Le vice-président Mike Pence soutient qu'il n'avait aucune idée que l'ancien conseiller à la sécurité nationale Michael Flynn faisait du lobbying pour une puissance étrangère - malgré le fait que Flynn en a lui-même informé l'équipe de transition en janvier dernier, et que le représentant Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) avait écrit à Pence - qui était à la tête de l'équipe de transition - à cet effet dès le 18 novembre 2016. Attends, quoi ?
a dit Pence en mars. Sûrement pas ! Vraiment ?
Il y a une raison à ce fléau du savoir-rien : l'étonnement perpétuel de l'empoté le disculpe. L'incompétence est moins dommageable que la malice. Et les hommes - en particulier les hommes puissants - utilisent cet échappatoire comme les entreprises utilisent les comptes à l'étranger. L'empoté prend l'un des mythes les plus musclés de notre culture - que les hommes sont de grands naïfs - et s'arme de cet alibi.
Permettez-moi de faire une suggestion controversée : Les hommes sont tout aussi sournois, calculateurs et venimeux que les femmes sont réputées l'être
. Et l'empoté - la figure même qui les protège de cette horrible vérité - en est la meilleure et la plus solide des preuves.
Briser cet alibi, c'est disséquer ce mythe. On nous dit que les hommes sont le seul sexe qualifié pour occuper des emplois importants et qu'ils sont trop incompétents pour être responsables de leur conduite. Les hommes sont géniaux mais transparents, dit l'histoire : ce que vous voyez est ce que vous obtenez. Ils manquent de ruse.
D'après l'argument du "privilège", ce serait en partie vrai parce que les hommes n'ont jamais eu besoin
de tromper. Ce fil Twitter intéressant de Holden Shearer a fait le tour du monde : "L'un des plus vieux ressorts de la comédie à petit dénominateur est que les femmes sont impénétrables et que les hommes ne peuvent pas les comprendre. Il y a une raison à cela et ce n'est pas drôle ", écrit-il. Le fil est juste en ce qui concerne les problèmes de structure avec les comédies de bas niveau du type "les femmes sont tellement déroutantes". "Les femmes TRES souvent disent une chose et en signifient une autre, ont des expressions ou des réactions qui ne correspondent pas à leurs sentiments, et ainsi de suite. Mais c'est en fait très facile à décoder une fois que vous comprenez pourquoi cela se produit. C'est un comportement de survie ", écrit Shearer.
Mais dans ce récit, on suppose que la grande majorité des hommes ne sont pas
des dissimulateurs. La majorité d'entre eux sont - vous l'avez deviné - des empotés ! Si vous avez remarqué une tendance à traiter les filles - comme la jeune fille, âgée de 14 ans, que Roy Moore, aujourd'hui candidate au Sénat, aurait ramassée à son audience de garde au tribunal des enfants - comme des adultes avertis et des hommes dans la trentaine - comme George Papadopoulos, conseiller en politique étrangère de Trump, et Donald Trump Jr.- comme des jeunes égarés, de grands enfants et des "coffee boys", c'est pour cette raison. Notre culture rend ce script disponible. C'est pourquoi Sessions est si souvent appelé un "elfe" et non un manipulateur doué (voici une analyse très intelligente de sa stratégie, qui utilise notre tendance à interpréter les hommes blancs - même de très vieux avocats avec une longue histoire d'atteinte malicieuse aux droits civils - comme des enfants lents et tortueux qui ne savent pas ce qu'ils font). C'est contre-intuitif, je sais. Depuis des décennies, l'idée même d'un homme trompeur et calculateur est si exceptionnelle qu'elle est presque monstrueuse ; c'est le domaine des chefs de culte, des escrocs, des escrocs, des hommes mauvais comme le mari dans Gaslight
. Et alors que les gens acceptent la prémisse qu'il y a des hommes qui "groom" les enfants et "gaslight" les femmes, la réticence à attacher ce comportement à un vrai homme de chair et de sang que nous connaissons est extrême. Beaucoup de gens ne croient pas que les hommes normaux en sont capables.
Lorsque les allégations de Dylan Farrow au sujet de Woody Allen ont fait la une des journaux, les gens se sont jeté sur la justification d'Allen selon laquelle Mia Farrow aurait "lavé le cerveau" de ses enfants pour qu'ils mentent à son sujet. C'était fascinant, à la fois parce que l'allégation ne contenait pas beaucoup de preuves et parce que Woody Allen avait ouvertement et à plusieurs reprises admis avoir manipulé et groomé Soon-Yi Previn. Mais, parce qu'Allen a si habilement déployé le script de l'empoté, personne n'a vu son comportement en ces termes. Le portrait qu'Allen a dressé de lui-même - un homme sachant à peine ce qu'il a mangé au petit-déjeuner ! - était à ce point efficace. Peu importe que cet homme soit si organisé, ambitieux, motivé, confiant et déterminé qu'il réussisse à sortir un film par an.
Au fur et à mesure que les accusations d'inconduite sexuelle qui secouent la politique, l'édition et Hollywood s'empilent, quelques événements vont se produire. La première étape d'un phénomène comme celui-ci sera toujours de caractériser les hommes accusés comme des exceptions, comme de mauvaises pommes. #NotAllMen,dit le dicton. Mais la deuxième est que tout le monde va essayer de naturaliser le harcèlement sexuel. S'il y a autant d'hommes qui font ces choses, alors c'est sûrement comme ça que les hommes sont !
dira l'argument. Il y a un corollaire qui se cache là-dessous : Ils ne peuvent pas s'en empêcher. Ce sont des empotés.
Ça ne passera pas. Mais la seule façon de s'en prémunir est de se débarrasser de notre étrange aveuglement culturel face aux comportements masculins manipulateurs. Nous devons être plus intelligents que nos défauts culturels. Nous devons nous débarrasser des scénarios disculpatoires qui ont mystérieusement permis à tous ces incompétents empotés de s'enrichir, de réussir et d'être admirés alors même qu'ils affirment être des bébés en matière de moralité.
Pour cela, il faut examiner les mesures délibérées et actives qu'ils ont prises pour dissimuler ce qu'ils ont fait.
Prenez Benjamin Genocchio, qui a récemment été remplacé comme directeur exécutif de l'Armory Show, la foire d'art de New York, après que 19 personnes aient témoigné de sa conduite inappropriée."Je n'ai jamais agi intentionnellement d'une manière inappropriée, ni parlé ou touché un collègue d'une manière sexuellement inappropriée", a déclaré Genocchio. "Dans la mesure où mon comportement a été perçu comme irrespectueux, je m'excuse profondément et sincèrement et je veillerai à ce que cela ne se reproduise pas."
Bref : c'est un empoté !
Avant de hocher la tête, de convenir qu'il est tout simplement impossible
de savoir ce qui est approprié à notre époque, regardons si les allégations contre Genocchio correspondent à la confusion qu'il décrit. Lors de la fête de Noël 2014 d'Artnet à l'hôtel Gramercy Park, alors que Colleen Calvo, le coordinateur marketing, enregistrait les invités à la porte, Genocchio aurait fait courir sa main dans son pantalon à paillettes. D'après Calvo : "Ben a dit : "C'est la seule fois où je peux te toucher le cul sans me faire crier dessus ?".
Est-ce que cela ressemble à quelqu'un qui ne comprend pas la différence entre ce qui est approprié et ce qui ne l'est pas ? Est-ce que cela ne ressemble pas plutôt à quelqu'un qui comprend parfaitement quelles sont les limites et qui les viole sciemment ? Ce n'était pas non plus isolé : le New York Times
a confirmé que Genocchio a été interrogé à plusieurs reprises
sur son comportement. C'était un problème connu. Il a ignoré les avertissements. Que les faits soient damnés : Genocchio savait qu'il jouait devant un public plus large qui ne regarderait pas ces détails ; il espérait pouvoir activer le stéréotype de l'empoté et l'utiliser comme alibi. Ce n'est pas ce que font les empotés. C'est ce que font les prédateurs. Les actions sont malveillantes et les manipulations sont délibérées. Alors, qu'en est-il de leur gestion de leur réputation après coup ? Est-ce que ça aussi, c'était fait comme un empoté ?
Dans la majorité des cas, les accusés étaient des gardiens rusés et vindicatifs de leur réputation et ont fait tout ce qu'ils pouvaient pour ruiner leurs victimes. Harvey Weinstein aurait détruit les carrières des actrices qu'il harcelait ; il les a fait cataloguer comme "difficiles" ou "folles". Il a apparemment engagé d'anciens agents du Mossad pour les espionner. Le réalisateur Brett Ratner - pour choisir un exemple peu recommandable - a répondu au récit d'Olivia Munn dans son livre sur la façon dont il s'est masturbé devant elle (elle avait laissé le réalisateur anonyme) en s'identifiant et en prétendant qu'il avait couché avec elle. (Il a admis plus tard qu'elle n'avait jamais eu de rapports sexuels avec lui). C'était un effort calculé pour lui infliger le maximum de dommages ; pour l'étiqueter "salope".
L'ancien animateur de Fox News, Bill O'Reilly, aurait fait pression sur l'une de ses victimes (qui travaillait pour la chaîne) pour qu'elle lui donne de quoi faire chanter une autre victime afin qu'elle mette fin à ses allégations contre lui.
L'ancien chef de Fox News, Roger Ailes, aurait filmé ses victimes dans des situations compromettantes afin de pouvoir les ruiner plus tard si elles se comportaient mal.
Et la phase de séduction ? Il y a eu une avalanche d'articles sur des hommes qui craignent désespérément d'être accidentellement jugés coupables de harcèlement. Ces hommes étaient-ils des prédateurs "accidentels" ? Ont-ils trébuché - déconcertés et confus - dans une situation où ils ont harcelé des femmes à leur insu et sans le savoir ?
Eh bien, le réalisateur James Toback a apparemment utilisé le langage de l'"école de théâtre" pour convaincre ses cibles que leur vulnérabilité était artistiquement nécessaire. Comme le rappelle Rachel McAdams, il " a utilisé le même langage pendant mon audition - que vous devez prendre des risques et parfois vous allez être mal à l'aise et parfois cela va vous sembler dangereux. Et c'est une bonne chose - quand il y a un danger dans l'air et que vous avez l'impression d'être hors de votre zone de confort".
Roy Moore aurait instrumentalisé la malignité intrinsèque au divorce pour convaincre une mère de laisser son enfant sous sa garde lors de l'audience de garde. "Il a dit : " Oh, vous ne voulez pas qu'elle aille là-dedans et entende tout cela. Je vais rester ici avec elle ", a dit Nancy Wells, la mère de l'une de ses accusatrices. "J'ai pensé, comme c'est bien qu'il veuille s'occuper de ma petite fille." Moore aurait récupéré la jeune fille de 14 ans à l'angle de sa maison
- probablement pour que personne ne le voit - et l'aurait emmenée dans les bois. La fois suivante, il l'aurait déshabillée, aurait enlevé ses propres vêtements et l'aurait forcée à le toucher.
Oh, et Louis C.K., l'ultime empoté ? L'extraordinaire empoté ? Il a menti. Il a menti à Marc Maron, un ami proche, en disant que les rumeurs à son sujet étaient fausses. Il semble avoir fait la même chose à Pamela Adlon, qui l'a défendu contre les accusations. Et cela ne s'arrête pas là : si on en croit Louis C.K., il n'avait aucune idée que son manager faisait en sorte que les femmes qu'il avait ciblées se taisent. Et si l'on en croit le manager, il n'avait aucune idée que Louis C.K. avait fait beaucoup de choses. Louis C.K. peut être un certain nombre de choses - malade, dépendant, déprimé, tordu, prédateur, égoïste, autodestructeur - mais une chose qu'il n'est pas, c'est un empoté
Combien de mensonges délibérés et prémédités, combien de pièges soigneusement tendus, combien de cas de tromperie nous faut-il avant de pouvoir admettre que les hommes sont tout aussi trompeurs et hypocrites que les femmes sont soupçonnées de l'être ? Que le harcèlement n'est pas un accident ? Que la prédation exige une planification ? Que ce gigantesque appareil par lequel les carrières des femmes sont détruites et celles des hommes sont préservées n'est pas le fruit du hasard
Hélas, les plus grands partisans du mythe de l'empoté ont tendance à être d'autres hommes. Vous vous rappelez peut-être que Dustin Hoffman a été accusé de tripoter et de harceler sexuellement une jeune de 17 ans sur le plateau - de dire des choses comme "J'aurai un oeuf dur.... et un clitoris mou". Il plaide coupable : "J'ai le plus grand respect pour les femmes et je me sens terriblement mal à l'aise avec tout ce que j'aurais pu faire pour la mettre dans une situation inconfortable ", a-t-il dit. Et en effet, il est difficile d'imaginer comment une adolescente dont c'est le premier emploi pourrait recevoir ces mots. Mais son employeur l'a-t-il défendue lorsqu'elle a finalement avoué, des décennies plus tard, qu'elle avait été confrontée à un environnement de travail hostile ? Non, le réalisateur Volker Schlöndorff est venu à la défense de Hoffman : "C'est juste un farceur", dit Schlöndorff. Tout le monde
faisait des massages de pied à Hoffman !
Les hommes prédateurs normalisent leur prédation et se soutiennent mutuellement. "Vous êtes une cible. Je suis une cible ", a déclaré M. O'Reilly lors d'un passage au Late Night Show with Seth Mayer
, au cours de laquelle il a discuté de son employeur, Ailes. "Chaque fois que quelqu'un pourrait venir nous poursuivre en justice, nous attaquer, aller voir la presse, ou quoi que ce soit du genre. .... Je soutiens Roger à 100%." Le candidat à la présidence de l'époque, Donald Trump, avant d'être lui-même accusé d'agression sexuelle, a également défendu Ailes. "Je peux vous dire que certaines des femmes qui se plaignent, je sais combien il les a aidées ", a dit le futur président, ajoutant qu'Ailes est " une très, très bonne personne. Et, au fait, une personne très, très talentueuse." Weinstein a soutenu Roman Polanski, qualifiant les accusations selon lesquelles il a drogué et violé analement une jeune fille de 13 ans de " soi-disant crime " et qualifiant les accusations elles-mêmes de "manière choquante de traiter un tel homme". Et Oliver Stone, lui-même accusé de tripoter un mannequin, déplorait le sort de Weinstein : "Ce n'est pas facile ce qu'il traverse", a dit Stone. "C'est ma conviction qu'il vaut mieux attendre que ce genre de choses soit réglée au tribunal. Je crois qu'un homme ne devrait pas être condamné par une justice populaire." C'est ainsi que la culture tente de normaliser ce genre de choses : en minimisant les dommages causés aux femmes et à les actions entreprises par les hommes. Lorsque l'actrice Katharine Towne a décrit un incident dans lequel Brett Ratner a commencé à la draguer lors d'un dîner, a refusé d'accepter une réponse négative et l'a piégée dans une salle de bain, voici comment son avocat Marty Singer a réagi : "Même si hypothétiquement cet incident s'est produit exactement comme prétendu, en quoi flirter à une fête, complimenter une femme sur son apparence, et l'appeler pour lui demander une date est conduite fautive ?" a-t-il demandé.
Ecoutez, voici le moment où nos mythes culturels sur les hommes et les femmes entrent en collision. C'est effrayant et déroutant et c'est une telle lame de fond que ça nous met mal à l'aise. Mais plutôt que de se précipiter vers la normalisation, il est important de faire l'effort de prendre une minute pour analyser à quel point il est compliqué de donner un sens aux différentes réalités dans lesquelles les hommes et les femmes ont vécu. J'ai écrit à maintes reprises sur le phénomène culturel du "je ne savais pas", sur la façon dont nos plus grands muscles culturels communs sont construits pour réprimer la connaissance de la façon dont la vie professionnelle des femmes déraille régulièrement à cause du harcèlement sexuel et de l'inconduite. Emma Thompson appelle les révélations Weinstein "la pointe de l'iceberg", et elle a raison : les économistes ont longtemps et paresseusement attribué l'exode des femmes dans diverses industries à leur décision de porter des enfants, mais maintenant cet iceberg explicatif géant flotte - cette histoire absolument gigantesque et largement ignorée et niée sur la façon dont les femmes sont régulièrement chassées de leurs industries parce que leurs collègues masculins doivent être libres d'utiliser leur pouvoir professionnel pour satisfaire leurs pulsions sexuelles. La plupart d'entre nous savons que lorsqu'un politicien est assis à la barre et insiste pour dire qu'il ne se souvient pas, il s'agit d'une performance politique, d'un faux-semblant manipulateur destiné à tromper Appliquons ce scepticisme intelligent à cette vague de déclarations d'incompétence masculine. Pour le dire en termes pragmatiques : Vous pouvez être un empoté, ou vous pouvez garder votre emploi. Vous ne pouvez pas avoir les deux.

2018.03.18 02:17 TheRezNation IJW : Game Night 
4.5 out of 5 - hipeRATED !!!
Full Review - http://www.hipegalaxy.com/movies/reviews/game-night-movie-review
CASTINGS: 5/5 – I WOULD NOT QUESTION ANY CASTING IN THIS FILM. LOL: HELL YES. I LAUGHED A LOT. STORY: GOOD, FRESH, ORIGINAL. HUMOR: FUNNY AS FUCK. 🙂 ORIGINALITY: YES, EXCEPT ONE JOKE THEY RIPPED FROM ‘NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY’. WHO TO SEE IT WITH: FRIENDS, PARENTS, GIRLFRIEND, GIRLFRIEND’S PARENTS, ANYONE REALLY. FIRST DATE WORTHY?: MOST DEFINITELY. GRAB A DRINK OR TWO BEFORE OR AFTER AND YOU’LL PROBABLY END UP EATING EACH OTHER OUT AFTERWARDS. SHE’LL LOVE YOU FOR PICKING SUCH A FUNNY MOVIE FOR YOUR DATE. OR HE’LL LOVE YOU, WHATEVER. OVERALL: 4.5/5 (hipeRATED!) COMMENTARY: I’m pretty critical when it comes to… well just about everything, but I am even pickier with my movies and what I give me seal of approval to. So what gives GAME NIGHT the highly coveted hipeRATED badge of honor? A lot of things. It’s just well written, original, well casted and laugh out loud funny. Jason Bateman does his thing after putting in years of hard work on ‘The Hogan Family’. His career got quite for a while there but was finally reignited with cameo’s in ‘Dodge Ball’ and then finally with a leading role in ‘Arrested Development’. Since then it’s been smooth sailing for Bateman who experienced success in both Horrible Bosses films, A Christmas Party in which he got to make out with Olivia Munn and most Recently in ‘Ozark’ which has season 2 scheduled to release sometime in like 2018 on Netfilx. Rachel McAdams proves she’s got plenty left in the tank while Lamorn Morris and Billy Magnussen lead the comic relief. Sharon Horgan and Kyle Chandler also do a great job fulfilling their roles. There’s really nobody who did a bad job in this movie. I also have to tip my hat to Jesse Plemons for his acting chops. I don’t want to say anything else because I don’t want to ruin some of the mini surprises that will leave you saying “Oh Shit, HAHA!” and they do add to the quality of the movie. So bottom line go see this movie, in the theaters, its better that way and worth the price of admission. Final verdict.. ‘Game Night’ delivers – in fact, it may be a classic. I can’t wait to see it again on Comedy Central.
