Big Little Lies Finale Recap + Season 2 Talk




[recap inside]
After a particularly vicious attack from Perry, Celeste decides to leave him.
Jane finds out from Ziggy that one of the twins (Max) has been hurting Amabella. She tells Madeline and then later Celeste.
Renata husband threatens Jane with a restraining order while she's at the cafe with Madeline and Tom kicks him out. He tells Jane that he has been trying to impress her for a while, and she finally realizes that he is not gay and takes him to the gala.
While they are about to go to the gala, Perry finds out that Celeste rented an apartment and is going to leave her. On the way to the gala, he tries to convince her to stay but she has had enough. There are then interrupted by Renata and Celeste takes advantage of this to get away from him and goes inside.
Ed finally shaves for the gala.
At the gala, Celeste tells Renata the truth about Max hurting Amabella.
While Ed is singing about her (he suspects that she cheated when she keeps looking at Joseph?) she rushes out in tears followed by Jane. She tells Jane that she cheated. Renata then walks to them and apologizes to Jane for everything she put her through and she accepts. Madeline also praises her for apologizing. Celeste joins them with Perry rushing behind her. He asks her to come with him but Celeste repeatedly says no with Renata asking Perry to give her some space. Jane then realizes that Perry was her rapist with both Madeline and Celeste too realize by the look on her face. Perry comes at the girls. Flash forward police sirens. We find out that Perry was the one dead. The girls tell the cops that that he starting hurting Celeste and fell down the stairs. Although the female detective doesn't believe them.
After Perry's funeral, we see Jane, Celeste, Madeline, Renata and Bonnie having a picnic at the beach then having mended fences. We then flashback to the night of the gala and see what actually happened. Perry lunged at Celeste and starting hitting and kicking with the girls trying to break him off but are unable. Bonnie then rushes from behind and pushes him off the stairs to his death.
Back at the picnic, we see someone looking at the girls through binoculars and then hear a click of a lighter as the credits roll.








While Nicole Kidman is up for a season 2 if they come up with something extraordinary, director Jean-Marc Vallee is not for it, saying that the open-ending ([Spoiler (click to open)]the detective watching over the women) is for the audience to decide about what happens later and he doesn't want to ruin it. The audience can imagine whatever they want.

Reporters in Wellington, NZ not allowed to ask ScarJo about whitewashing

scarj.png

- Reporters waiting to interview ScarJo at Stone Street Studios in Wellington before the release of the Ghost In The Shell movie were "asked – well, warned – to ignore the aspect of the film that has everybody talking: while Scarlett Johansson is more than capable of portraying a cyborg action heroine, she is decidedly not Japanese."

- In the original source material of the movie, ScarJo's character's name is Motoko Kusanagi and works for the law-enforcement division of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission.

- Author of article thinks that it is not unreasonable to ask Johansson for her thoughts on the matter since representation and race are hot topics in Hollywood, and also because stars like David Oyelowo, George Clooney and Lupita Nyong'o have been vocal about ingrained prejudice in Hollywood.

David Schwimmer Launches Videos to Fight Sexual Harassment


Friends star David Schwimmer has joined with Israeli-American filmmaker Sigal Avin to launch six short online videos that star celebrities like Emmy Rossum, Cynthia Nixon, Bobby Cannavale, Noah Emmerich and Schwimmer himself acting out real instances of sexual harassment.

“I grew up with stories of sexual harassment from my mom. Every woman in my family, in my life, has been harassed, except my daughter, thank God, who’s only 6," Schwimmer told Cosmopolitan,

“The whole purpose of this is to encourage people and to give them the courage to speak out if they’re a victim themselves of harassment, or if they witness or are aware of sexual harassment. The reality (is that) this kind of harassment takes place in the workplace, in a professional environment, and that means it’s about power," Schwimmer said.

One of the videos, titled The Coworker, stars Grace Gummer and includes President Trump's infamous "grab her by the pussy" line. “We don’t want this to be a partisan issue because it’s not. Every woman, no matter what her political beliefs, is subject to sexual harassment. This is not a partisan ‘liberal Hollywood throwing their arms up against Trump’ issue...Having said that, I found his boasting of committing sexual assault really disturbing. I think our leaders have to demonstrate a certain kind of character. When I think about my daughter, I find that difficult to explain,” Schwimmer said.

The six videos are available online here.

Why Meghan Markle's Estranged Half-Sister Samantha Grant Is Really Speaking Out



Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha Grant is penning a tell-all book about her relationship with the Suits actress.
52-year-old Grant's motives might not be as innocent as they seem.

from a source :
"Samantha Grant doesn't have a relationship with Meghan Markle and she never has. As they were 17 years apart, they were never raised in the same house. Meghan was raised an only child by her loving parents."

"This woman who she hardly knows, who has had a lifelong history of lying and manipulation is setting her sights on her for no reason. In their very limited contact, Meghan has never been anything but nice to her and for the majority of those interactions, Meghan was just a little girl. This is an old, jealous woman (she is in her 50s! who does this in their 50s?) doing anything she can to take advantage of the situation to sell lies for money and fame.3

"Meghan has never done anything to her and continues to take the high road."

"Recently Samantha changed her name from Samantha Grant to Samantha Markle. If she hates Meghan so much, why is she suddenly trying to share an identity with her?"

"Samantha was not a part of that life and in no way shape or form did Samantha raise Meghan until she was 12. Meghan saw her on occasionally at family functions but never on a regular basis. For about two weeks when Meghan was 12, Samantha moved in with her dad (and Meghan was still splitting time between homes). She has seen her once since then. It's been 23 years."

Samantha Grant, on twitter about her book "Maybe when she is more mature and she reads the book she'll understand some of it. She won't like some of it she might [sic]."

Jezebel interview with Anne Hathaway

- talks about her upcoming movie Colossal in which she plays Gloria, an "out-of-work, alcoholic internet writer in her mid-30s who suffers a pre-midlife crisis and flees New York for her hometown."
- talks about how even after four years, she is still asked about why the internet hates her
- I think it’s weird that it continues to be talked about a little bit. I understand in the context of this movie, why it should be brought up. But it comes up in every interview I do, just about. I am... not eager, but I am ready for the conversation to move to a place beyond it. I don’t have to contextualize all of my stories, all of my experiences through that time.
- thinks most overt things are off-putting, including overt feminism, overt masculinity and overt ageism
- And I’m careful saying this because I wonder how much my reaction has been colored by the people who have explained it to me, and given the world in which we live, the majority of those people have been men.

Also, in a long (and embarrassing, tbh) postscript, the interviewer reflects on how he was one of the people who posted the infamous photo of Hathaway's crotch back in 2012. He basically tries to explain his actions by writing that in 2012 he didn't think much of posting it because at that time, there wasn't such backlash against posting nudes.

The 2017 Hugo Awards finalists have been announced, and it is still a mess


yes the award really does look like this

- The fantasy/sci-fi-oriented Hugo awards have been plagued by MRAs and white supremacists called "Rabid Puppies" the past few years, who conspire to keep women and POC out of the list of finalists and push their own favourite racist and misogynistic writers

- This year, the Best Novel category is "Puppy"-free and, in fact, NONE of the category's nominees are white men. The nominees are 4 women and 2 men, including 3 authors of color (NK Jemisin, Cixin Liu and Yoon-Ha Lee) and 2 out LGBT writers (Charlie Jane Anders is a trans woman and Yoon-Ha Lee is a trans man).

- However the "Puppies" continue to game the system, and only 6 out of 18 categories are "Puppy"-free. Puppy finalists include:[Spoiler (click to open)]Vox Day for Best Editor, novella "This Census Taker" by China Miéville, short story "An Unimaginable Light" by John C. Wright, "The View from the Cheap Seats" by Neil Gaiman, the movie Deadpool, the semiprozine Cirsova, fanzine Castalia House, fancast The Rageaholic by Razorfist, fan writer Jeffro Johnson, fan artists Alex Garner and Mansik Yang, new writer J. Mulrooney

- The nomination of "Alien Stripper Boned From Behind by the T-Rex" by Stix Hiscock in the Best Novelette category was pushed by the MRAs. In 2016, they got "Space Raptor Butt Invasion", by Chuck Tingle, on the list of finalists in order to "discredit" the Hugo awards. Turns out Chuck Tingle isn't a fan of the alt-right and the move backfired horribly (for them) - he called the Puppies "devils" and announced that if he were to win, he would get Zöe Quinn (of Gamergate fame) to accept the award on his behalf. While no one seems to know much about Stix Hiscock, it possible that this year, to avoid nominating someone who is actually against everything they stand for, one of the MRAs actually wrote a novelette about butt-stuff himself and published it in order to get a Hugo nomination.

Prison Break Revival (season 5) Reviews



The return of Prison Break is so exhaustingly mediocre. Prison Break isn’t worth much of anything, but it could have been. There’s just too much good TV out there that’s more deserving of your attention. Sorry, fans, but Prison Break should have stayed locked up.



Those who are looking for good television, however, will likely not be pleased by what’s going on here. Purcell and Miller are not particularly good in a series that depends on a certain level of realism. My hope is that this will satisfy whatever itch the show’s die-hards had to elicit this revival, if only to finally put an end to all of this.



Prison makes no effort to get the facts or parties straight, or to avoid a single ugly Middle Eastern stereotype. If you needed another reason to let this show die once and for all, that will do.


Prison Break was always two or three steps over the line of the absurd with the hand break off towards nutty. Prison Break Season 5 only serves to prove that. Sometimes there really are no more good tales to tell and some things really should just be left alone — now matter how great the temptation.

Larry the Cable Guy comes for Tina Fey over her comments on white women who voted for Trump


You may have seen the post over the weekend where Tina Fey slammed white college-educated women who decided to vote for Trump. Apparently this morning a Fox News radio station decided to randomly call up Larry the Cable Guy and ask his opinion on the matter because reasons. Larry pointed out that he thinks Tina is probably a "nice lady" and then went off.

"She is a piece of crap, let me just say. Nothing is going to affect her. Tina Fey's got millions of dollars, so no matter what decision Tina Fey makes votingwise, what is it going to affect her? ... She can quit working now, and off the money she has made, she is going to be generating about $1.4, $1.5 million a year sitting on her ass," he stated. "So she is telling all these other people that are going out there and working 9 to 5, got four kids, they still have to go out there and work, and then they have to come home and do their house work. She is trying to tell these ladies that they're stupid? Really?"

Larry, who is a known supporter of Trump, continued to ramble on air for eight minutes and randomly brought drywall into the conversation for some reason.

"It's easy for Tina Fey and somebody to ridicule somebody when everybody else is drywalling, and the hardest decision [she has] to make in [her] day is what kind of cheese spread do [she wants] from the deli tray when [she's] on a 15 minute break from filming whatever [she's] filming... The guy won, regardless of what you think of him."

WGA sets date for strike authorization vote



*The Writers Guild of America is taking the first steps toward another potential writers strike.

*Talks have been cordial between the WGA and AMPTP, but an agreement hasn't been reached. Talks will resume this Monday.

*WGA members will vote on April 19 whether or not to authorize a strike. Their contract ends May 1.
