Quentin Tarantino is a fan of Roman Polanski

At the press conference for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood Tarantino talked about how he's a fan of Polanski and Rosemary's Baby and somehow avoided saying anything too stupid, by white man standards.

However, he later got testy when a female reporter asked him why Margot Robbie's Sharon Tate character has barely any speaking lines in the movie. He was also asked about scences depicting "rage against women" but declined to comment citing "spoilers"

Margot brought her Sharon Tate cosplay out for the event as well.

Research shows that women only speak 25% of lines on Game of Thrones


* On average, women have 30% of speaking time in general forms of popular media. It is about 25% for GOT.

* Women fared the best in Season 7 (31% of speaking time), and the worst in Season 8 (22%).

* The episode with the most female speaking time is S4E5 First of His Name which featured Cersei and Daenerys (still a bit under 50%). The episodes with the least are S1E7 You Win or You Die and S8E4 The Last of the Starks (under 20%).

* Women only had 20% of the dialogue in the series finale.

* A researcher notes that "You've got this misperception that because women are very visible, their bodies are very visible, that somehow equates to a meaningful statement, which doesn't necessarily have to be the case."

* Tyrion and Jon have by far the most lines of dialogue; Ned Stark, who died in Season 1, has more lines than Margaery, Melisandre and Missandei. Men make up nine of the top 15 characters with the most lines.

* A previous analysis revealed that the total screen time for all male characters was some 15% more than that given to the female cast. (Tellingly, the dialogue gap is even larger - women are shown, but not necessarily depicted as active agents.)

* Male characters tended to have more masculine-centred words in their lines, such as men, man, King, and Lord; for female characters, the more frequent words were love, leave, please, husband and master.

* Article also notes the show's issues with sex and violence towards women, and the controversy behind Daenerys's storyline.

GRRM to New Zealand: Imprison me if I haven't finished The Winds of Winter by July 2020

georgerrmartin21280-24129-pmjpg-c74b85_1280w.jpg

In a move of staggering confidence, popular disappointment and author George R.R. Martin has indicted that the highly anticipated next installment to his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, The Winds of Winter could be finished as soon as next summer. He has promised that if he does not, then fans have permission to imprison him on an active volcano.

On his blog, which has recently moved from LiveJournal to his own site, George had this to say:
"As for finishing my book… I fear that New Zealand would distract me entirely too much. Best leave me here in Westeros for the nonce. But I tell you this — if I don’t have THE WINDS OF WINTER in hand when I arrive in New Zealand for worldcon, you have here my formal written permission to imprison me in a small cabin on White Island, overlooking that lake of sulfuric acid, until I’m done. Just so long as the acrid fumes do not screw up my old DOS word processor, I’ll be fine."

This statement comes only one day after a previous blog post where GRRM stated that he would not share when he thought the books would be done so as to not disappoint.

However, George has previously made promises he could not keep around WorldCon. In February of 2007, GRRM promised that A Dance with Dragons would be finished by that summer, in time for WorldCon Japan. The book was not published until July 2011.

Moby refuses to accept that Natalie Portman never dated him

https://instagram.com/p/BxwubzJhaq2


Moby is doubling down on claims he made in his autobiography where he described briefly dating a young Natalie Portman in 1999.

After Portman denied the relationship, claiming "my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school", Moby decided to take to Instagram to stand by his claims and call out the actress for denying their involvement:

"I recently read a gossip piece wherein Natalie Portman said that we’d never dated. This confused me, as we did, in fact, date. And after briefly dating in 1999 we remained friends for years. I like Natalie, and I respect her intelligence and activism. But, to be honest, I can’t figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth about our(albeit brief)involvement. The story as laid out in my book Then It Fell Apart is accurate, with lots of corroborating photo evidence, etc. Thanks, Moby"

Natalie Portman criticises 'creepy' Moby over 'disturbing' account of friendship




In his new memoir "Then It Fell Apart," Moby described the relationship between him and Natalie Portman, with the latter calling it out as "very disturbing".

Moby claimed that he and Portman dated when he was 30 and the actress was 20, recounting how he attended parties in New York with her and going to visit her at Harvard University:

“kissing under the centuries-old oak trees. At midnight she brought me to her dorm room and we lay down next to each other on her small bed. After she fell asleep I carefully extracted myself from her arms and took a taxi back to my hotel.” [...] “It wanted one thing: for me to be alone … nothing triggered my panic attacks more than getting close to a woman I cared about.”

He then described how Natalie called him up to tell him that she had met someone else: “For a few weeks I had tried to be Natalie’s boyfriend, but it hadn’t worked out.”

Portman, however, remembers things very differently:

“I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” [..] “He said I was 20; I definitely wasn’t. I was a teenager. I had just turned 18. There was no fact-checking from him or his publisher – it almost feels deliberate.”

She said that she and Moby had only hung out just "a handful of times" and that he had originally suggested "let's be friends".

Billie Lourd will share scenes with her mother Carrie Fisher in the new Star Wars movie



The Rise of Skywalker writing team wrote around cut scenes from The Force Awakens so that Carrie/Leia would be done justice. JJ Abrams initially wrote Billie's scenes without Carrie, but she told him, “I want to be in scenes with her. I want it for my children when I have kids. I want them to see.” Abrams said that at times Billie, who plays Lt. Connix, would get emotional and need to take a break.

Carrie also had scenes with other characters, where they matched the lighting and shot other angles just like in a normal re-shoot. Abrams said the process was a “bizarre kind of left side/right side of the brain sort of Venn diagram thing, of figuring out how to create the puzzle based on the pieces we had.” In the teaser you see Rey and Leia hugging, “and it’s like she gets to be in this movie where we would have wanted this moment.”

Jessica Alba: "I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating."

Trigger warning: this post concerns the topic of eating disorders.



- Grew up with a conservative family that restricted what she wore: "My mom would say, ‘You have a body and it’s very womanly, and people don’t understand that you’re 12. I wasn’t allowed to have my nalgas out, which is butt cheeks [in Spanish], but I was born with a giant booty, and they come out of everything. So, I didn’t get to wear normal things that all my friends wore because my nalgas were out.”

- Says she lost weight to get rid of her curvaceous shape. She wanted to look "more like a boy" in order to prevent tempting men.

- Says she, like many other actors and actresses, were preyed upon by Hollywood and many of the men in that industry felt entitled to her and her body.

- It wasn't until she had her first baby that she'd appreciate her body. Breastfeeding reminded her of what boobs really are for and it helped her come to terms with the fact that her body was not meant for men or anyone else.
"[Breast feeding] was the dopest shit I’d ever done. So, I came into my body as a woman finally and I stopped being ashamed of myself."

Moby claims he "dated" Lana del Rey


  • While Moby continues to argue with Natalie Portman over whether the fact that they kissed and he creeped on her for a few weeks when she was 18 and he was 34 counts as "dating" he also dropped another big name that he "dated"

  • According to Moby he went on a date with Lana del Rey in 2006 when she would have been either 20 or 21 and he would have been 40 or 41

  • They initially met at a bar where he tried to take her home to have sex with her and she declined but agreed to go on a date with him

  • After their date he took her back to his apartment where she told him he was the type of rich man who would be the first one guillotened during a revolution which he thought was a compliment (Op note: LOL)

  • He tried to put the moves on her but she was not impressed "I sat next to her on the piano bench and started kissing her. She kissed me back – but then stopped. ‘What’s wrong?’ I asked. “‘I like you. But I hear you do this with a lot of people.’ I wanted to lie, to tell her that I didn’t, that I was chaste, sane, and ethical. But I said nothing"

  • She went home after that and according to him they agreed to go on a second date (OP hasn't read the book so no idea if this was the extent of their dating or what)

  • Moby says they later worked together professionally a year later in 2007 when she was briefly a backup singer for his band The Little Death but she quit to do her own material

Amber Heard takes it to Capitol Hill to support legislation making revenge porn a federal crime



Amber Heard left the Cannes Film Festival to pay a visit to Washington, DC on Wednesday.

The actress is supporting the SHIELD Act, a reintroduction of a legislation that would make sharing sexual images of a person without their consent a federal crime. This would make posting and distributing 'revenge porn' punishable by a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.

“Nonconsensual porn is one of the worst violations of privacy and it doesn’t discriminate, instead it disproportionately affects women around the world with devastating consequences. Intimate content released into the internet is virtually impossible to remove, further subjecting victims to harassment and judgment from strangers and acquaintances alike.”

Heard had her own private photos and videos leaked in 2014 by a hacker who targeted multiple high-profile stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Kate Upton, and Kirsten Dunst. “I continue to be harassed, stalked and humiliated by the theft of those images. I can tell you firsthand that the acts of nonconsensual porn are humiliating and degrading.”

On Kangaroo Jack:


Rapping in Russian b/c why not?




[Michael Shannons 10 (5) Favorite Books]
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
"This book kind of sums up the whole deal really. Particularly nowadays. Someone should read it aloud over and over again while blaring it through huge megaspeakers throughout the Washington, D.C., area. Reading this book to my daughters is about the happiest I get in life."

Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut
"I was obsessed with this book when I was a teenager. His imagination is limitless. His humor is monumental. His compassion is staggering."

Straight Life by Art Pepper
"Jazz is what has kept me from completely losing my marbles. A friend recommended I check this out, and that’s how I knew he was my friend. A bull’s-eye. Art’s story told through his own words and the words of those who loved him, or at least were fascinated by his incredible gift and witnessed his every attempt to blow it to smithereens. Gives you the most palpable sense of the agony and the ecstasy, the unreasonableness and eventual reasonableness of his life."

Eleven Kinds of Loneliness by Richard Yates
"Of course, Revolutionary Road had quite an impact on me. But these stories are exquisite. Yates’s understanding of the human psyche in the day and age in which he lived, the confines and conflicts of expected norms, and the turmoil that they generated, is excruciating yet mesmerizing."

Zen Flesh Zen Bones by Paul Reps
"I took this one on a camping trip with a couple buddies of mine. We just sat around reading, hardly said a word to each other. I did not attain enlightenment, but I had some good laughs and realized what a dumbass I am."


[Ready to Retire??]


Says that if it's a great story, it doesn't what genre it is he's drawn to it when asked about working with Meredith the director of the film. Also starring in Knives Out with Rian Johnson next.

"So you’re not the type of actor who has a process to every character or how you deconstruct a screenplay or anything like that? When asked if he has a process to every character he plays/de-constructing the screenplay and etc:

"I don’t know. I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know who would. I don’t know what other people do. I don’t know much about it at all really. People just asking me to do it."

When asked about what's driving him in his choices and if there's something he's still chasing as an actor:

"No, I am ready to retire."

"I would retire except I just bought a new house for my family so I got to pay the bills. Like I said, people keep asking me to do this stuff. Sometimes I find it compelling what they’re presenting, and I do it. I have a very love-hate relationship with what I do. I don’t like being away from home. I don’t like being away from my children and nothing ever shoots where I live. I honestly at the end of the day prefer doing theater. It’s a mystery to me, but we’ll see what happens."

When asked if he'll go into directing, writing, and producing:

"Yeah, that’s mostly in name only. I wouldn’t be able to produce a movie by myself. If you put a gun to my head, I wouldn’t know where to start. Maybe. I might. I always said I wouldn’t, but I think I’m finally to the point where I’m just, maybe because of the frustration that I’ve felt that I just mentioned, maybe because of that, I’m interested in being the one calling the shots or at least one of the people calling the shots. I don’t know. Maybe. I would never say what it is or when or if it’s going to happen."

Says that theater is his true love and that once he's done with his performance, it's out of his hands and manipulated in post production. And on The Shape of Water and Guillermo del Toro made it better.

Really wants people to see the film b/c he thinks Meredith the director has a unique point of view, and wants it to succeed so she can make another one.

This verse is so legendarily bad that it is now a classic, and everyone in the gay club can shout the lyrics perfectly at the top of their lungs.

'Aladdin': What the Critics Are Saying

aladdin-6



Critics weighed in today on the latest in Disney's live-action adaptations of animated classics. Some quotes:

Seattle Times
It's got a flying carpet. It's got an enchanted lamp. It's got a shape-shifting genie. But alas, "Aladdin" lacks real magic.

New York Times
The movie itself, while not entirely terrible - a lot of craft has been purchased, and even a little art - is pointless in a particularly aggressive way.

CNN.com
"Aladdin" is a great deal of fun, with charming leads and elaborately mounted songs.

The Atlantic
Even with a colossal budget and the spectacular tech available to Disney, live actors can't replicate the dizzy kinetics of a cartoon.

USA Today
While there's a certain charm missing from the revamp, Smith goes way over the top to make up for it.

Globe and Mail
There are just some things that should not exist in this world, and Smith's visage pasted onto a floating, endlessly stretchy blue cloud of CGI muscles and sinew is top of the list. So, yeah: pure nightmare fuel.

Queen Elizabeth sees a self-checkout area for the first time




While touring a replica of the original Sainsbury’s to mark the store's 150th anniversary, Queen Elizabeth was shown a self-service checkout area for the first time. After being shown how it worked she asked, “And you can’t trick it? You can’t cheat then?” Manager Damien Corcoran replied that it was possible people could cheat it, everything was weighted which made it more difficult to do steal. Corcoran added that the tills were helpful to people in a hurry to which the Queen replied, “I’m sure they do — everybody wants to hurry.”

She was also shown Bloater Paste, a herring pate from the 1950s. The Queen said it "sounded disgusting". (OP note: ikr?)

Have you ever stolen anything going through self-checkout? Does technology confuse you?
