Reddit Ask: What is a film you had low expectations, but ended up enjoying?

I have posted from Reddit before so I hope it's okay that I do it again! So reddit user ayub_nor asked "What is a film you had low expectations, but ended up enjoying?" and here are some of the answers.

- Cabin in the Woods (2011): I assumed it was just another generic horror gorefest, but it turned out to be such a great satire of the horror genre.

- Kung Fu panda (2008): Thought it was just going to be jack black spastic nonsense, got some of the best story telling and passionate voice acting and wonderful scenery. The sequels were just as good if not better.

- Kung fu hustle (2004): Saw it in the theatre as a kid with my dad and wasn’t too excited. Now it’s a classic for us lol

- Game night (2018): I don’t know why but I expected a mediocre comedy but I found myself laughing the entire time.

- Pacifc Rim (2013): I was expecting a standard Kaiju vs Mecha movie that would have half decent but it turned out to be an awesome movie. Even more miraculous was that they didn't shoehorn a romance into it despite having every opportunity for it.

- Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005): Didn’t have any if maybe low expectations, but ended up absolutely loving it.

In addition to her signature sound curated with longtime collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott, Aaliyah was also known for her style and still influences many artist until this day.

Good Morning Britain viewers cringe after 'car crash' interview with Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon

Iwan Rheon found himself having to repeatedly correct the hosts of Good Morning Britain on Wednesday as he appeared on the show to talk about his new film, leaving viewers baffled.

One blunder involved host Charlotte Hawkins telling Iwan that he previously wanted to take part in Eurovision, leaving him confused. "Did I? I don’t remember that," he told Charlotte, who shared that she had it written in her research notes.

She and co-host Ranvir Singh then asked about an upcoming performance this weekend with his ‘band’. Iwan had to inform them he performs solo and it was actually last weekend. "It was just me...It was on Sunday, it has happened."

The presenters also brought up his child and whether there would be birthday celebrations today. Once more, Iwan fell into an awkward moment of silence before correcting them and revealing his kid's birthday already happened on August 14.

Collapse )

Iwan luckily saw the funny side and later posted a jokey tweet in response.

Whoopi Goldberg Slams Cancel Culture

Goldberg spoke about the time when her career stalled after she joked about President Bush in 2004.
She was asked whether she considered herself as having been canceled at the time.
“No. I would describe that situation as a lot of people covering their backsides, because the joke was never about him. But no one ever stood up and said, ‘Hey, here’s what actually happened.’ And they put it in the newspaper. And you notice, they’d never seen what I exactly said, or what I said at all. But all somebody has to do is say you said it.”

Goldberg was out of work for five years after the Bush incident and bounced back when Barbara Walters offered her a hosting gig on “The View.”

Goldberg addressed cancel culture directly, “I feel like the truth doesn’t seem to matter as much these days. Because there is cancel culture, people will call or text and say ‘I’m not buying your product. This is who you have talking about your product, me and my five million followers — if you keep her — we’re not going to buy your car, or we’re not going to buy your shampoo or we’re not going to buy your toothbrush or we’re not going to buy your Pampers,”

“As a brand, DEW has a rich history of experimenting with new flavors our fans love.

The red cans from hell will be available August 31 at Mountain Dew’s virtual Dew Store, while supplies last.

Did Sha'Carri Richardson Shade Allyson Felix & Jamaicans?

* 11x Olympic medalist and living legend visited Jimmy Kimmel the other day

* While on the show, she offered words of encouragement to Sha'Carri, who has had a difficult couple of months, after losing her spot on the Olympic track & field team due to a positive drug test and coming in last in her first post-Olympics race

* Said Felix: “I know that she’s obviously been through so much and I hope that she’s just supported. I hope people rally around her. Obviously she has a great personality and she’s brought a lot of attention to the sport and I think she’ll be in the sport for a very long time. I think just more than anything, for all athletes, there’s so much that goes into it. Just give her the support that she needs.”

* Sha'Carri seemingly responded by calling words of encouragement spoken on TV fake

* Could drama be brewing or is this just a misunderstanding / coincidence?

ONTD, should Sha'Carri hire a social media manager or are these just the growing pains of a woman ,who suddenly finds herself under intense, public scrutiny?

Christy Carlson Romano: I was salty over Shia LaBeouf’s success

“We went from seeing each other every day, to not seeing each other for years, to him being this huge star. For a while, I think the ghost of who Shia was and who he became was really frustrating for me. I felt a little jilted from the whole situation. I was like, ‘Here he is. Making a big ol’ splash in Hollywood and here I am, I chose to go to college and there’s consequences that come to that,’ but there was definitely an undercurrent of regret … [and] comparison. Sibling rivalry, if you will.”

Romano, 37, played LaBeouf’s on-screen sister on “Even Stevens” that ran from 2000 to 2003.
Christy Carlson Romano admitted Shia LaBeouf’s success used to make her “salty,”
So much so that at one point she couldn’t bring herself to watch any of his movies.
Romano's bitterness mellowed and they never stopped talking.
They just ended up going in “completely different pathways of life.”
Despite working so well together, they were never very close.
Romano thought LaBeouf was cool and confident despite being younger than her and she had a lot of insecurities at the time.
There was animosity between them because she felt that he never appreciated how much she put into the job, LaBeouf didn’t even thank her when he won an Emmy while she was sitting in the crowd.
Romano felt that LaBeouf didn’t respect her or take her seriously as an actress, he had compared her to Reese Witherspoon, which made her upset.
She regrets not giving him more time and energy and love “like a real sister,” it makes her sad.
If she saw him today, there would be an “undeniable bond.”
If they’d ever talk to each other again, Romano said it’s a “complex answer.”
She still has so much love for the actor despite their differences.

“Shia, if you see this, know that I love you. I’m sorry that we didn’t connect more when we were kids and I really do hope that you are taking it one day at a time … Be well ’cause I’ll always love you.”


Melissa Rivers, 53, is considering adopting a baby

Melissa shares 20-year-old son Cooper with ex-husband John Endicott.
Rivers has been “thinking about” adopting a child, but is torn because of her age.
She’s “80 percent there” in deciding to adopt but noted she’s not taking the decision “lightly.”

“Well, I’ve been thinking about it for a very long time. I’ve been thinking about it for about six years now, and you know, certain times it feels like the absolute right decision, and certain times it doesn’t feel like the right decision. What really stops me is, you know, would it be fair for the child to have unfortunately, like now a little bit of an older parent, you know? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, because I’m certainly very active and you know, a goer, but it’s a lot to think about…”
