Ten Signs You're Watching a Post-Mumblecore Indie

The well-connected and marginally well-publicized Post-Mumblecore indie landscape has produced a lot of films in the past few years to some acclaim. Filmmakers that aspire to be a no-budget John Sayles or a lower-rent Lena Dunham cashed in their trust funds, hit up their relatives or skipped the yearly jaunt to the Turks & Caicos in order to subsidize their creative endeavors. It truly is a struggle trying to be unique while reinforcing the status quo. This is the adolescence of our future cinematic overlords and these are the hallmarks of their current offerings:

FKA Twigs releases #throughglass short film


The short film she herself directed & choreographed for Google's #throughglass was released a couple hours ago. It seems like Google Glass is moving to the right direction in the way they're trying to look. Remixes of the songs "Video Girl" and "Glass & Patron" are played in the background as she explores different looks and dancers.

In late September she had a few last-minute tweets asking for look-a-likes who are gymnasts around the LA area (I was so tempted to go and give it a try, but alas, I'm a 6' Hispanic male).

Mother wants 'Breaking Bad' figures removed from Toys R Us

Susan Schrivjer, a mother from Fort Myers, launched a petition in early October to have White -- and other "Breaking Bad" action figures -- removed from Toys R Us. As of Monday morning, the Change.org request has received more than 2,000 signatures.

In the petition, Schrivjer -- who wrote the appeal under the name "Susan Myers" -- gets right to the point.

"Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages," she wrote. "However their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

Toys R Us has yet to respond to a CNN query. In a statement to WFTX, the toy giant said, "The products you reference are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up. Items from this TV series are located in the adult action figure area of our stores."

Author, Admitted Stalker and Real Life Version of Amy Dunne, Kathleen Hale, Admits Animal Abuse

From the outside, if you don’t know her, Kathleen Hale appears as any other typical, normal suburban housewife. Mid to late 30s, maybe a few kids, some animals, likely has a nice house. Nothing strikes you as alarming when it comes to her. Nothing struck me as alarming with Amy Dunne when I first delved into reading ‘Gone Girl’ (along with seeing the movie a couple of weeks ago), either, but boy did that quickly change – and change it did with Kathleen Hale, too.

Much like the fictional Amy Dunne, nothing about Kathleen Hale is normal. Everything about Kathleen Hale is terrifying.

As if her stalking a woman and writing about it wasn’t bad enough, in 2013 she also took to Medium, a blog-publishing platform, where she seemingly taunted the ASPCA with her headline and wrote from the point of view of her animals – PJ the hamster, DJ (PJ’s wife), Quinn the dog, Janet the rat, various fish, Olive the cat, and Mr. Nibbles the rabbit. I didn’t link to her piece, but I’m about to. However, I won’t do so without a warning: It is highly disturbing so click at your own risk.

In the blog, Hale writes about squeezing her hamster until it died, her dog eating rat poison, and shoving her rat’s head into her asthma inhaler and “delivering two fatal pumps.” That’s animal abuse, plain and simple.

Drama at The Voice!

Gwen Stefani has been such a breath of fresh air on “The Voice,” some staffers don’t want her to leave.
The No Doubt rocker temporarily took over for Christina Aguilera during the diva’s maternity leave, joining Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams.
“When Gwen took over, she instantly became a favorite and bonded” with the others, a source said. “She injected energy and humor onto the panel.”
The source added that Aguilera’s return for Season 8 has caused a “rift” because Stefani was hoping to stay, and “It’s become a point of contention with everyone on the show.”
But a source countered that bringing Aguilera back was always the plan and Stefani has her own career to attend to. (She’s making her first solo album since 2006 with Williams.)
“Whenever there’s a change in coaches, there are rumors of drama,” said an insider. “Christina was always coming back. And Gwen is always welcome — hopefully she’ll be back.”

Comedian Hannibal Buress: ‘Bill Cosby Is A Rapist’

During a show in Philadelphia on October 16, popular comedian Hannibal Buress came for the head of Philly’s own Bill Cosby, joking that his often condescending advice to Black Americans is negated because he “rapes women,” reports PhillyMag.com.

“It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fuckin’ smuggest old black man persona that I hate,” Buress said. “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches. ‘I don't curse on stage!’ But yeah, you're a rapist, so...

“I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns,” Buress says later. “I’ve done this bit on stage and people think I’m making it up…. when you leave here, google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ That shit has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.’”

As previously reported by NewsOne, sexual abuse allegations against Bill Cosby, which first surfaced in 2004-2005, have returned with a vengeance.

One of Cosby’s alleged victims, Barbara Bowman, 47, one of the 13 women to accuse Cosby of sexual assault, set off a firestorm when she repeated her heartbreaking tale of alleged abuse at the hands of America’s Dad.

Bethenny Frankel’s Mother Says Daughter Is A ‘Vicious & Horrible’ Liar!

Although Bethenny Frankel and her mother, Bernadette Birk, have not spoken in more than a decade, Birk is confident that she “will never speak to her” daughter again. In an exclusive bombshell interview with RadarOnline.com, she explains why she’s cut ties, and hasn’t spoken to her reality star daughter for nearly ten years.

In Frankel’s auto-biography/self-help book, The Place of Yes, which was published in 2011, the former Real Housewives of New York City star claims that her childhood was torn apart by “eating disorders, alcoholism, mental illness and violence.” However, her estranged mother strongly disagrees.

“Bethenny spread vicious and horrible lies about me simply for publicity,” Birk tells Radar, adding, “her ratings were down and they soared!

“I gave her the benefit of the doubt, and I always left the door open for her, but she destroyed it and now that door is shut forever!” Birk continues.

According to Birk, there is one person that Frankel, 43, does love– herself!

“She is so vain, and loves herself so much, that if she even got so much as a scratch she would run and get plastic surgery,” she says.

Do you believe Bernadette, ONTD? I've never entirely discarded what Bethenny said about her upbringing, however I do believe she has embellished a lot of her hardships for the sake of building her brand. I've also never believed the emotional/commitment/whatever issues she's had were truly real issues so much as she's just a really shitty, manipulative, nasty, social climbing and self-centered person.

OPERATION S.I.N. Starring Peggy Carter And Howard Stark Launches In 2015

To tie-in with ABC's Agent Carter TV series, Marvel will launch the five-issue Operation S.I.N., a story set in their comic book universe which focuses on Peggy Carter and Howard Stark.

The five-issue series follows Peggy Carter and Howard Stark in a globe-trotting adventure into Cold War era Russia trailing an alien artifact that could upset the balance of international relations. "Peggy and Howard know each other and if she didn’t particularly like him before, he certainly shores up that position in the opening pages of the first issue," Immonen teases.

It sounds as if the comic book will share quite a few similarities with the Agent Carter TV series as Stark pulls Carter back into the action through his belief that she very much does not belong behind the desk, an act of persuasion that sets them - and Original Sin character Woodrow McCord - directly in the path of a reorganizing HYDRA. "The HYDRA in our book is a splinter group operating in a remote place co-opting a good part of the imprisoned Soviet brain trust."

Jaime King Gets a Dream Closet Makeover

It’s every fashion lover’s dream to have a custom-made closet, so when we got wind that Hart of Dixie star Jaime King had hired Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design to transform hers, we had to get a glimpse. For King, the need for the transformation was more about space and visibility than organization. “Jaime has a lot of deliveries coming in and out each day to account for,” says Adams, “so we really tried to get everything into the closet.” To that end, Adams actually expanded King’s closet by one foot, pushing it into a sunroom off of the master bedroom.

NPR First Listen: Jessie Ware - Tough Love Album

If you're feeling raw, Jessie Ware's Tough Love is a perfect companion, whether you use it as a balm or an echo chamber for your despair. On her second album, Ware comes on like a good listener offering support in the wee hours, singing direct lyrics about love and loss in understated melodies that ease by without melodrama.

Pop songs can stop time or suck the air out of a room, but Ware holds that kind of perfection at arm's length. She wants you to feel the time pass with her. On her debut album, Devotion, her collaborators used her restraint to their advantage, filling the space around Ware's unwavering voice with ostentatious sounds or smothering it in retro, chilled-out vibes. The crossover enablers Ware employs on Tough Love give a sense of the balance she's now trying to strike: James Ford, Miguel and Dev Hynes are the indie-approved talent; Benny Blanco, Emile Haynie, Nineteen85 and Ed Sheeran point her toward pop radio; Dave Okumo and Julio Bashmore hint at her emergence from the U.K. dance scene.

The results, in song after song, are a careful refinement of Devotion's adventurous eclecticism, giving the comforting voice at its center a chance to spread out. Ware owns the spotlight.

Ariana went to Miley for advice on how to handle diva rumors

Ariana Grande has revealed she turned to Miley Cyrus for advice after being branded a "diva" in the press.

The Problem singer has been forced to deny claims regarding her attitude, with Ariana confessing that she was "heartbroken" by the rumours.

She explained to The Mirror that she felt so upset by the accusations, that she called Mi-Cy for some much needed words of wisdom.

Grande said: "I was upset and I contacted Miley. I said, ‘Miley, I’m so sad – what do I do? This isn’t true. My heart is broken, I feel so bad.’

"She was like, ‘Girl, don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends love you, you have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.’

‘It will blow over and tomorrow they’ll be talking about something else.’

“She lives for love and that’s something I do too. She has a beautiful spirit and she made me feel so much better.”

The remake of 2002's 'Cabin Fever' will use the exact same script as the original, films this week

Armory Films, Cassian Elwes and Contend have announced today that they have joined together to produce the remake of Eli Roth's horror thriller hit Cabin Fever, with Travis Zariwny (Intruder) directing and Armory and Pelican Point Media financing.

The original premiered at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival with Elwes involved in a massive bidding war for the film. This version will be shot from the exact same script that Roth directed 13 years ago, as opposed to going through a long, delayed studio development process.

The film stars Gage Golightly (“Teen Wolf”), Dustin Ingram (Paranormal Activity 3), Samuel Davis (“From Dusk Till Dawn” – TV), Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man) and Nadine Crocker (Deadgirl).

Former MMA Fighter "War Machine" Wrote Delusional MRA-laced Note Before Attempted Suicide

In the note, War Machine — born Jonathan Koppenhaver — apologized to his friends and family for the violent beating and sexual assault of Christy Mack. He begins with a quotation from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche — “to die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly” — before bragging that despite the fact that he’s dead, he “experienced more in my short life than 5 avg. men combined.”

Using language associated with the Men’s Rights Movement, he implores his brother to “keep alpha male shit alive.” He tells his friends he loves them, writing “may my strength be with you.”

He concluded his portion of the letter by asking its intended recipients “to remember me for my times of strength,” and noting that “society has killed men, I was never meant to live in this era anyway. Follow your dreams and think for yourselves.”

He has been in medical isolation on suicide watch since he attempted to take his own life, and is due in court for a preliminary hearing on the 32 charges against him on November 14, 2014.

Gerard Parkes, Fraggle Rock actor, dead at 90


Gerard Parkes, the Irish Canadian actor, best known for his roles on the hit children's series Fraggle Rock and the American crime movie The Boondock Saints is dead.

He died Sunday morning in a Toronto retirement home, four days after his 90th birthday, his niece and agent have confirmed to CBC News.

Born in Dublin in 1924, Parkes came to Canada and launched his show business career on CBC Radio in the 1950s, before landing roles in TV, film and stage.Parkes appeared in the 1960s CBC-TV adventure series The Forest Rangers, and popular children's shows The Littlest Hobo and Shining Time Station.  Winner of a Canadian Film Award for his performance in the 1968 feature film Isabel, Gerard also won a Dora award for his performance in a 1999 theatre production of Kilt and several awards for radio dramas.

Despite his lengthy and diverse achievements, Parkes is probably best known for playing "Doc" on Jim Henson's popular TV series Fraggle Rock.

The grey-haired, bespectacled character, with the dog named Sprocket, was the only human to regularly appear on the 1980s children's program about a colony of colourful creatures who live under Doc's house.

When asked what Parkes would think about being remembered most for acting with puppets, Gerry Jordan, Parkes' agent of 30 years said "he'd love it. He had a thrill doing that show," Jordon told CBC News. "We got loads of fan mail from kids and adults around the world.  He was a magical man and a terrific performer."

Gerard Parkes is survived by his partner of two decades, Sheelagh Norman.

Vinnie Jones joins Arrow

‘Arrow’ casts Vinnie Jones as comicbook villain Brick

“Arrow” has cast British actor Vinnie Jones as comicbook villain Danny “Brick” Brickwell in season three, Variety has learned exclusively.

In DC Comics canon, “Brick” is a Green Arrow villain with thick, invulnerable skin. In “Arrow,” Danny Brickwell is a ruthless gang leader who brings Star City’s government to its knees. He’s known as “Brick” on the streets because he’s been shot dozens of times but never put down. Jones will appear in episodes 10, 11 and 12 of “Arrow’s” current third season.

This is the character’s live-action debut, although Brick has previously appeared in the animated DC/WB series “Young Justice” and in a Green Arrow-centric DC Nation short on Cartoon Network, which you can watch here. “Arrow” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg utilized the villain during his run writing the Green Arrow comics in the late aughts, and his name was previously teased on the show as a corrupt businessman on Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) list of targets.

“Arrow” has already cast a number of iconic DC characters in season three, including Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer (aka The Atom), J.R. Ramirez as Ted “Wildcat” Grant, “Spartacus” alum Nick Tarabay as Captain Boomerang, Amy Gumenick as Cupid, David Cubitt as Mark “Manhunter” Shaw, and Matt Nable as Ra’s al Ghul.

Jones can next be seen as a regular on ABC’s midseason musical comedy “Galavant.” He is repped by Elevate Entertainment and Innovative Artists.


I mainly know him from this, haha:

Edgar Ramirez, star of ‘Liberator,’ ‘Point Break’ remake, had to be persuaded to become actor

Edgar Ramirez thought, “What’s the worst that could happen?”

At the time, he was sitting in a park in his native Venezuela with Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Iñárritu weighing the pros and cons of becoming an actor.

The director, who has the highly anticipated “Birdman” coming out later this month, had just finished making “Amores Perros.” He had originally offered the starring role to Ramirez, whom he had seen in a short student film.

“This could have been you,” Iñárritu told him when he showed him a clip from the movie. Ramirez, then a college student, passed on the role because he was planning a career as a diplomat and had lined up postgraduate internships.

When Iñárritu talked to him a second time about becoming an actor, Ramirez was heading a nonprofit group in Venezuela similar to Rock the Vote. This time Ramirez took the plunge, and now it’s paying off for the 37-year-old actor.

He plays South American freedom fighter Simón Bolivar in “The Liberator,” out in select theaters today. In the upcoming “Hands of Stone,” he plays the legendary boxer Roberto Duran with Robert De Niro playing his trainer. Currently, he’s filming the role of Bodhi (originally played by Patrick Swayze) in the new version of “Point Break.”

It’s not like Ramirez is an unknown. He received Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations for starring in the 2010 miniseries “Carlos,” the true story of the infamous terrorist known by that name. He also had prominent roles in “Che,” “Clash of the Titans” and its sequel, “Wrath of the Titans,” and Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty.”

In “The Liberator,” directed by Alberto Arvelo, he stars as a rather dashing version of the general. We first meet Bolivar in the film when he is leaping off the balcony of his lover as assassins come in the door.

Homeland: Carrie Gets Even Worse

Season 4's latest twist is sexual, horrifying, and all too familiar.

When Showtime president David Nevins promised that season four of Homeland would be "a big reset," it was fair to expect that "reset" might mean returning to the show's spy thriller roots, instead of giving us a literal reset in the manner of The Hangover 2, which had the exact same plot as The Hangover, only with a new locale and a different facial disfigurement for Ed Helms.

Now, after Sunday night's episode, "Iron in the Fire," it’s abundantly clear: Aayan is Nick Brody, only with a Mike Tyson tattoo instead of a missing tooth. Like Brody, Aayan is intimately connected with a wanted terrorist, and recently lost several people he cared about in a drone strike.
