ONTD Original: 5 modern black & white movies you should watch.

white-people-in-movie-theater.com-79937

So I don’t really know what counts as ``modern´´ but I decided to go from 2010 and up. So if you wonder why movies like Persepolis or Sin City aren’t on the list it’s because they came out before 2010!

Enjoy and share your favorite black and white movie (old or new)

ONTD ORIGINAL: Messiest moments in music, a GIFstory, part 1

(hi mods: I fixed the embeds/image links!  3rd time's a charm!)

This post (and series? maybe? if anyone reads this?) is dedicated to some of the messiest moments in music. I have also inserted as many gifs as possible to enhance ONTD reading comprehension. This is a subjective post so if you are convinced that these moments aren't messy or ugly enough then please feel free to


I want to thank the internet for being a treasure trove of information, human nature for creating all these shady situations, my grad school application for providing me something to avoid doing while I worked on these writeups, the wonderful crew at McDonalds for spending hours making those Egg McMuffins, and ONTDers for being fabulous and entertaining.

File this under Tragic: Floptastic Flop



Hey, it's me! Your [as of lately] daily bringer of Floptastic Flop news! Let's get right to it!

Fantastic Four (2015) was originally tracking a $40-50 million opening weekend. I told you yesterday that it was official that Fantastic Four was flopping and was struggling to make it to $30 million. just444 later commented that it was on track for a $28 million opening weekend.

Sorry, Fox! It looks like Fantastic Four will only make $26.2 million during its opening weekend. How tragic is that? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the one that came out in 1990, made $25,398,367 during its opening weekend. Blade II opened with $32,528,016.

It also did not take the #1 spot at the box office. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is #1 during its second week with $29.4 million.

Kickstarter campaign for distribution of Hiroshima bombing manga "Barefoot Gen" takes off

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Publishing company Last Gasp started a pledge on kickstarter to raise $36,000 to print and distribute about 4000 hardcover copies of the manga "Barefoot Gen" to schools and libraries for educational purposes. "Barefoot Gen" is a manga series by author Keiji Nakazawa (1939-2012) and details semi-autobiographical accounts of his experiences as a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The manga has spun several adaptations, including two anime features, live action films and TV series, and books. (There is also interest in Hollywood to make a film based on it).

From the kickstarter campaign:

August 6, 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Today, the danger posed by nuclear weapons is as great as ever, yet few people survive who witnessed their horror.

Keiji Nakazawa's manga illustrates the true impact of nuclear weapons when used against a civilian population. It is vital reading for people of all ages, and especially for today's youth.

By keeping this tragedy in our collective consciousness, we can strive to never repeat it and guide humanity towards a course of peace.

With your support we hope to share the message of Gen with tomorrow's leaders.

Today also marks the second atom bomb drop by the US on Nagasaki 70 years ago.

Benedict Cucumber orders fans NOT to film him during hamlet, Claims it's MORTIFYING



Benedict Cumberbatch has warned fans not to film him on stage as Hamlet, telling them there is 'nothing less supportive' than seeing the red light of a camera in the audience while he performs.

He also claimed one theatre-goer was 'blindingly obvious' in filming him as he performed, making it more difficult to resume the show when it was halted

'I could see a red light in the third row. It's mortifying.'

'I can't give you what I want to give you which is a live performance that hopefully you will remember in your minds and brains, whether it's good bad or indifferent, rather than on your phones, so please don't.'

ONTD, Do you think benedict was right to do this or do you think he should just suck it up and stop living in the 1800s?

How do you and your girls deal with things when your cheating ex fiancé breaks up with you?

Are Zayn and Zendaya 2015's Next Power Couple?

zeze.jpg

“Zayn is talking to a lot of ladies very casually, but Zendaya is the most high-profile,” an insider told The Sun. Their chatting, however, is strictly business related! “He said they should get in the studio together as they both have a similar R&B vibe, and he’s been talking about fashion as she’s in London working with Vivienne Westwood.”

The outlet reports that Zayn took interest in working with Taylor Swift‘s bestie triple threat, award winning actress Zendaya after she reportedly revealed it would be “dope” to work with him. “It’s just chatting at the moment but his pals think they’ll meet up to record something soon,” the source added.

What do you think ONTD? Should zendaya love haself and not entertain this known fuckboy? or is it all just speculation?
