Video inside UK answer to The Wire (?)

By LexHeyden - 11 hours ago





Quote:

A thriving but underground drugs business is being run by Dushane ('Ashley Walters') and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson) to become the richest men on the block. To live rich Dushane and Sully go into partnership with top don Bobby Raikes ('Geoff Bell (I)'). Rivalry with Kamale (Scorcher) and his gang results in their loan from Raikes being stolen, and they swear revenge. Thirteen-year old Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) gradually gets lured into the gang and drug business as his mother Lisa (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) has a breakdown and is hospitalised - with devastating consequences.


Personal Opinion: So far I'm 3/4 episodes through season 1. It's not bad, but it's not The Wire. I think any urban show about drug-dealing is gonna be compared. The good thing is, this is a show in the UK, so there might be less people up on The Wire, than in the states.

Stand-alone score: 3/4, seasons are short (2 seasons 4 episodes) and story is slow at times.

Compared to the wire: 2/4, Guys on the block ran by a 2 man crew, but they weren't touching Stringer/Barksdale (as of season 1). Some of the characters show similarities.

Worth a view if nothing to do.

DaOmega_1 reviews "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1"

By DaOmega_1 - 1 day ago


The conversation surrounding this movie (especially here on BX) is astoundingly wrong.

This is not a chick flick. Chick flicks focus on mostly one element: wish fulfillment. Women wish they had the lives/interests/friends that the main characters do. Women watch those movies to see something that they can't have in real life.

This is not that. Not. Even. A. Little.

This is also not an action film (even though there are action sequences in it). More than anything, it reminded me of movies like "Wag The Dog" and "The Manchurian Candidate". This is a film about politics, propaganda, and influence in a hostile atmosphere. The fact that these films are relegated as "chick flicks" says something about the attention spans of certain audiences who laser focus on romantic subplots, and not the political satire, the social commentary, or the seriously dark tone that is more akin to "1984" than it is "Twilight".

These films are better than that. And, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" is a seriously impressive movie for what it is. And, that is a dystopian science fiction thriller for teenagers. What makes this different from other films like it is the level of emotion sophistication to the proceedings. This never feels juvenile or childish. Rather, it feels serious, dire, and decidedly not-fun.

The anchor to this whole entire franchise working is Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. She is the most talented actress working today. She plays multiple complex emotions here. Too many times, female characters are either weak, unrealistically cold-blooded, or one dimensional. Katniss is never easily pigeonholed into any category as a character. She develops as a character, and draws the audience in.

All the other characters get their shine also. Liam Hemsworth gets the most from his screen time. His character becomes a much more likable one than the previous films portrayed him as. And, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta doesn't get a ton of time on screen, but what time he does have, he totally owns. Where they take his character in the third act is a choice I'm loving the more I think about it.

It makes the film feel a lot more sinister than we have previously seen.

Of course, a lot of the criticism about this movie is (rightly) aimed at the blatant cash grab move that is splitting the last book into two movies. However, another thing I liked a lot about this film is that its ending feels like a conclusion to this part of the story. It doesn't leave you feeling like you got robbed like the ending to "Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1" did. Instead, this film feels like its conclusion is a conclusion.

We know that these films are known for frequently going against the conventions of this particular genre. "The Hunger Games" & "Catching Fire" are vastly different films. This one is the most mature & the bleakest one of them all. And, that's an element I really respect about this film. It doesn't play nice to its characters, and constantly puts them through increasingly difficult situations emotionally and mentally. Those who dismiss this aren't looking at the bigger picture.

Maybe this has to do with the amount of focus placed on Katniss' relationship with Peeta. The movie sometimes feels as though it places too much of a spotlight on their relationship, and makes Katniss' character feel weak & contradictory at points. However, looking at the bigger picture, it makes for a fascinating mirroring of the political subtext in the film. We have Katniss, the face of the revolution. And then Peeta, the face of the status quo. Both need each other for the other to survive. It's a parasitic relationship, one that gets a great resolution in the film's final five minutes.

The nuts & bolts of what makes a good movie is here. Characters that feel real, a world that feels lived-in & alive, a smart screenplay, great pacing, etc. The elements that make a movie good is present here. What makes this more than a good movie is the level of sophistication the storytelling & plot mechanics take. Sometimes it reach exceeds its grasp in certain areas, but a big budget franchise (ostensibly for teenagers) with this amount of intellectual ambition is rare to find.

If you want this kind of genre filmmaking without having your intelligence insulted, here you go.

Video inside Ride Or Die Cosby Protester Shouts Out Boxden. Cosby Recieves Standing Ovation At FL Show...

By 1LynguisticMind - 1 day ago







Quote:

MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — As Bill Cosby's standup tour crumbled with cancellations, the embattled entertainer joked about his usual subjects of family, wives and childhood Friday to a cheering audience that greeted him with a standing ovation as he took the stage and another when he finished.

It was a stark contrast to announcements that performances in Oklahoma, Nevada, Illinois, Arizona, South Carolina and Washington State, were called off as more women came forward and accused entertainer of sexually assaulting them many years ago.

Cosby has never been charged in connection with any of the allegations.

"I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos," Cosby told the Florida Today newspaper after the show. "People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos."

Tom Werner, who co-founded the Carsey-Werner Company which produced "The Cosby Show," defended Cosby in a statement to the Boston Globe on Friday.

Despite everything swirling around the 77-year-old longtime entertainer, fans filled a sold-out theater in Melbourne, Florida.

Though an announcer before the show said disruptions were possible, none ever came. A radio station had offered $1,000 to anyone who would interrupt Cosby. Instead, the comedian — wearing cargo pants and a shirt that said "Hello Friend — was greeted only by a cheering, whistling, knee-slapping audience. He never came close to referencing the allegations.

At least twice, someone shouted, "We love you, Bill Cosby."

His 90-minute set wandered from a childhood fear of God to the loss of freedom in marriage to the rocket-speed Spanish of a piñata-store worker. He sat for much at first, then grew increasingly physical, impersonating jujitsu and gymnastics poses, lying on the floor in stocking feet and thrusting a fist upward in describing everyday quarrels with his wife.


"I think people went in there with him as Bill Cosby from the TV show, not the guy they heard about on the news," said Travis Weberling, 40, of Melbourne.

Outside the theater before the show, just one protester could be found. She held a sign that read, "Rape is no joke."

Julie Lemaitre, 47, of Rockledge, Florida, said she was there just to have a presence and to try to say to people attending "think about what you're doing."

Cosby's producers said at least 28 other shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

However, shows in Las Vegas, Tucson, Arizona, Champaign, Illinois, Reno, Nevada, Florence, South Carolina, and at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Oklahoma were called off.

David Fischer, the director of The Broadway Center in Tacoma, Washington, said Friday that it has canceled Cosby's April appearance because it conflicts with the nonprofit organization's mission "to strengthen our community's social fabric by building empathy, furthering education and sharing joy."

Several fans in Florida, though, said they came to the Maxwell C. King Center For The Performing Arts to see good comedy and that the accusations didn't influence them.

"Let them prove it. It's old accusations," said Paul Palmieri, 47, of Melbourne, who said he was ready to see "the king of comedy."

Still, projects on NBC and Netflix have been canceled, and TV Land decided not to air reruns of "The Cosby Show" after recent allegations by more than six women that Cosby sexually assaulted them after giving them pills many years ago.

Josette Tornabene, 24, of Melbourne said she bought her ticket Friday, motivated by the radio's station's $1,000 offer.

"I wanted to see someone call him out," she said. "I want to see him be held accountable."

Some of the women accusing Cosby are going public again after initially coming forward around 2005, when Andrea Constand filed a lawsuit alleging that he sexually assaulted her. The Pennsylvania woman's lawyer said other women were prepared to make similar claims, but the case was settled before trial.

Tamara Green, a California attorney, was among those who had agreed to testify. She later said Cosby tried to sexually assault her in her Los Angeles apartment around 1970, when she was a model and an aspiring actress.

She said Cosby asked her to help him raise money to open a private dance club. When she got sick shortly after starting the project, she said Cosby gave her two pills that made her almost lose consciousness, took her to her apartment, undressed her and then took his clothes off.

"I got really angry," she told The Associated Press in an interview on Friday. She recalled screaming and trying to break a window with a lamp as she fought off Cosby's advances. He eventually left, leaving two $100 bills on her nightstand, she recalled.

Another woman, Joan Tarshis, decided to tell her story publicly for the first time on Monday.

Now 66, Tarshis said Cosby gave her drug-laced drinks twice in 1969, forcing her to perform a sex act the first time and raping her the second time. She said she told no one about this for decades, and only decided to go public when she read a Nov. 13 column in The Washington Post by Barbara Bowman, who alleges she was drugged and raped by Cosby when she was 17.

"I actually spoke with Barbara Bowman yesterday," Tarshis told the AP on Friday. "It was great. Because she's a person who understands what I've been through."

Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, in a statement Friday, said the accusations by women with "unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40 or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."

Bill Cosby Will Peform Tommorow Night Despite Expected Protest...

By 1LynguisticMind - 2 days ago



Quote:

Bill Cosby, once one of America's favorite TV dads, will take the stage Friday at the King Center for the Performing Arts at Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne. The curtain will go up under a cloud of controversy.

Plans to protest Cosby's upcoming performance appeared to be gaining traction on social media sites now that six women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against the comedian.

"I hear they have been rallying people on the radio," said student Carry Rovito.

Former model Janice Dickinson is the latest to accuse Cosby of sexual assault.

"He had given me wine and a pill and the next morning I woke up and I wasn't wearing my pajamas," Dickinson said.

The comedian's attorney called the allegations a lie.

The King Center for the Performing Arts released a statement on its website Wednesday saying Cosby's sold-out show will go on as planned, writing in part: "While we are aware of the allegations reported in the press, we are only in a position to judge him based on his career as an entertainer and humanitarian."

"I would wait until everything dies down before I go back out in public, trying to do tours and stuff," said dance instructor Stephen Redding.

Entertainment outlets are pulling the plug on several Cosby projects. NBC scrapped plans for a new Cosby sitcom. Netflix postponed an upcoming standup special.
TV Land stopped airing reruns of "The Cosby Show."

School officials said no one has come forward requesting refunds for tickets, but they are increasing security to keep everyone in line if protesters show up Friday night.
1 mile from my apt. might head out to try and get some free food. most protests ive been to got free food and sh*t. might scalp a ticket to see him have a mental breakdown. Police are already beefing up the area. :iranmaybe:

Old School video games that would make good movies

By TrillTalk404 - 2 days ago

I made this thread based off another one i read about comic books that need movies. But yah I got to thinking about all the video games i felt could have, or should still have a movie based on the story or the characters. I say old school games cause i aint really on that video game sh*t like i used to be...X-Box 360 was my last system :facepalm:
But these would've been great if a proper movie was made...
Ninja Gaiden
Contra (Like Rambo havin a twin)
Twisted Metal (more so a crazy ass anime film)
Halo (sh*t would do numbers if done right)
Killer Instinct (had some unique ass characters)
Gears of War
Zelda (this would be easy to make...theres movies similar to the story)
Mega Man
God of War
Kane n Lynch
Metal Gear (sh*t would be incredible)

Better Call Saul Gets Two-Night February Premiere on AMC

By Ham Rove - 2 days ago




Quote:

Anticipating a need for some legal representation after the new year? AMCÂ’s got you covered.

The Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul will premiere on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015 at 10/9c, the network announced Thursday.

The next night, Feb. 9, AMC will air the seriesÂ’ second episode in its regular, Mondays-at-10 time slot.

“The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White,” reads the Bad spin-off’s official description. “When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is ‘fixer’ Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts ‘criminal’ in ‘Criminal lawyer.’”

Bob Odenkirk will reprise his title role; Bad‘s Jonathan Banks also will return to play his character, Mike Ehrmantraut. The series’ cast also includes Michael McKean (Family Tree), Rhea Seehorn (Franklin & Bash), Michael Mando (Orphan Black) and Patrick Fabian (Grey’s Anatomy).
