BBC Culture Names The 100 Greatest American Films


Top film lists are nothing new but BBC Culture polled 62 international film critics and each critic was asked to submit a Top 10 list of American films. The Top 100 was calculated using a point system giving 10 points for a #1 pick down to 1 point for a #10 pick. The list was surprising because many American classics didn't rank very high based on the critics.

Per source, the criteria for a film to be eligible was that it had to be made by a US studio or funded in some way from an American source in order to be considered an American film. The director of the movie did not have to be from the United States (32 of them on the list aren’t) and the movie did not need to be made in America either.

The critics were “encouraged to submit lists of the 10 films they feel, on an emotional level, are the greatest in American cinema – not necessarily the most important, just the best.”

Ava DuVernay calls out edited dashcam vid of Sandra Bland arrest

To Summarize:

-She edits video for a living (duh)
-Several inconsistencies in the video which back up her claims (a good summary here)


Ava DuVernay explains why she passed on Black Panther and offers industry advice to minorities

- On declining to direct Marvel's Black Panther: "For me, it was a process of trying to figure out, are these people I want to go to bed with? Because it's really a marriage, and for this it would be three years. It'd be three years of not doing other things that are important to me. So it was a question of, is this important enough for me to do?

At one point, the answer was yes because I thought there was value in putting that kind of imagery into the culture in a worldwide, huge way, in a certain way: excitement, action, fun, all those things, and yet still be focused on a black man as a hero — that would be pretty revolutionary. These Marvel films go everywhere from Shanghai to Uganda, and nothing that I probably will make will reach that many people, so I found value in that. That's how the conversations continued, because that’s what I was interested in. But everyone's interested in different things.

What my name is on means something to me — these are my children. This is my art. This is what will live on after I'm gone. So it's important to me that that be true to who I was in this moment. And if there's too much compromise, it really wasn't going to be an Ava DuVernay film."

- Despite turning down the project, she says it should be good and plans to watch it

- On getting ahead in Hollywood as a minority: "You gotta follow the white guys. Truly. They've got this thing wired. Too often, we live within their games, so why would you not study what works? Take away the bad stuff — because there's a lot — and use the savvy interesting stuff and figure out how they can apply. It's a good one for the ladies."

- On women pursuing their careers and getting what they want: "Women have been trained in our culture and society to ask for what we want instead of taking what we want. We've been really indoctrinated with this culture of permission. I think it's true for women, and I think it's true for people of color. It's historic, and it's unfortunate and has somehow become part of our DNA. But that time has passed."

Tom Cruise was 'scared shitless' filming that Mission: Impossible 5 plane stunt

- The plane sequence required Tom Cruise, 53, to hang on to an Airbus A400M as it soared 5,000ft in the air

- Cruise: "I've always wanted to do that. I want to keep audiences on the edge of their seats... I'm actually scared shitless."

- Had to wear special contact lenses so he could keep his eyes open despite the wind pressure

- Also said the crew did their best to make certain that no birds were harmed in the process

- On his major underwater scene: "We [director Christopher McQuarrie] have something I've always wanted to do: an underwater sequence without cuts. The kind of training I had to do for that was pretty intense. I've done a lot of underwater scenes but I’ve never done one [like this] that will get the audience to lean forward and have a visceral reaction... So doing that sequence was really interesting. We're underwater and we're doing breath-holds of 6 to 6 1/2 minutes. So I was doing all my training with the other stuff (on-set). It was very taxing stuff."

- McQuarrie and Cruise says there are callbacks to all four of the previous M:I films along with some Easter eggs for fans on the lookout

- Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation opens July 31st

50 Cent a fraud?

-Last week, civil courts ruled that 50 Cent had to pay $5 mil to the mother of Rick Ross' child for leaking her sex tape (which he did to humiliate Ross while they were actively beefing).
-Filed for bankruptcy shortly after.
-Had a hearing yesterday to determine how much he would have to actually pay her.
-Said he's only worth $4.4 mil
-Told courts "It’s like music videos, they say action and you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership" and that all his cars are rented and jewelry is borrowed.
-Said in court "Now that I’ve filed for bankruptcy…I’m not as cool as I was last week." LMAO

Rick Ross must be reveling in this because he just released a diss track aimed at 50. Listen to it at Vibe's website.


So much going on in hip hop the last few weeks my goodness.

Naturally, TLC gave Jazz a reality show. All well and good - until some people got wind of it. Namely, Wayne Dupree, who had some very englightned things to say.

Singer reveals Mariah Carey paid for last-minute cancer treatment

Deborah Cooper, a former back-up singer for the Elusive Chanteuse, has revealed that Carey stepped in at the last minute when she learned Cooper was facing liver cancer and had dropped to only 90 pounds.

'Mariah Carey definitely saved my life. They told me that I only had a few months to live, so when Mariah heard about it, she was like, 'Umm... Where do I send the money?''

Carey paid for Cooper to undergo a $25,000 holistic treatment after she opted not to receive a liver transplant.

'[Mariah] may be a bit of a diva or whatever, but she's got a heart,' Cooper said. 'She's warm and giving.' Cooper is now in remission and has recently reunited with Carey.

White People | Official Full Documentary

What does it mean to be white? MTV’s ‘White People’ is a groundbreaking documentary on race that aims to answer that question from the viewpoint of young white people living in America today. The film follows Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and filmmaker, Jose Antonio Vargas, as he travels across the country to get this complicated conversation started. ‘White People’ asks what’s fair when it comes to affirmative action, if colorblindness is a good thing, what privilege really means, and what it’s like to become the “white minority” in your neighborhood. For more information on ‘White People,’ and to join the conversation, head to race.lookdifferent.org.
