clearly I need to watch more house of cards
I hope that I can bring strong characters. In the original source material, I don’t think the main characters are the protagonists. What I’m hoping is to bring characters… Nobody’s interesting. Tetsuo’s interesting because weird sh*t happens to him, and Kaneda is so two-dimensional. That’s part of the Japanese culture, they never have strong characters. They’re used as a way to move the other philosophy forward.
Jaume Collett-Serra, or as The Mary Sue describes it, the “director of the cancelled white-washed live action Akira” who is “still trying to make [whitewashed] live action Akira.
What? WHAT??? “Nobody’s interesting.”? GTFOH
Michael K. Williams talks about an emotional moment on the set of ‘12 Years a Slave’, moving Arsenio Hall to tears.
The emotional and spiritual toll that this film must have taken on every single Black cast member…..

totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
I need someone to explain to me how 12 Years A Slave wins for Best Picture, but they lose in the Supporting Actress and Leading Actor categories?
I need someone to help me understand this.
The lead actor and supporting actress were black. So….
IT’S. SO. BEAUTIFUL.
she called out hollywood’s love of j flaw and challenged them to direct that worship at someone who deserved it, lupita
I knew this gifset would be making the rounds! Alfre was right on point…but I am proud of Lupita anyway!
50% of the profits of multinational film companies accrue from the screens of the Third World. Thus each of our countries unknowingly contributes substantial finance to the production of films distributed in Paris, New York, London, Rome, or Hong Kong. They have no control over them, and reap no financial or moral benefit, being involved in neither the production nor the distribution. In reality, however, they are coerced into being “co-producers.” Their resources are plundered.
The United States allows less than 13% foreign films to enter its market - and most of these are produced by European subsidiaries controlled by the US majors. They exercise an absolute protectionism.
Most important is the role of the cinema in the construction of peoples’ consciousness.
Cinema is the mechanism par excellence for penetrating the minds of our peoples, influencing their everyday social behaviour, directing them, diverting them from their historic national responsibilities. It imposes alien and insidious models and references, and without apparant constraint enforces the adoption of modes of behaviour and communication of the dominating ideologies. This damages their own cultural development and blocks true communications between Africans and Arabs, brothers and friends who have been historically united for thousands of years.
This alienation disseminated through the image is all the more dangerous for being insidious, uncontroversial, “accepted,” seemingly inoffensive and neutral. It needs no armed forces and no permanent programme of education by those seeking to maintain the division of the African and Arab peoples - their weakness, submission, servitude, their ignorance of each other and of their own history. They forget their positive heritage, united through their forefathers with all humanity. Above all they have no say in the progress of history.

I just saw that James Avery just passed away and all I could think of was this scene from Fresh Prince. The ending moment between Will and Uncle Phil was unscripted and it shows how caring and loving James Avery was towards the people he interacted with. Judge Phillip Banks was the first positive black male role model I saw on TV (other than Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable…) and I want to post this in tribute. Mr. Avery, thank you for being a part of my childhood and you will be sorely missed.
R.I.PThis was a heartbreaking and beautifully acted scene by both James Avery and Will Smith. Uncle Phil you will be missed!
He will be truly missed.
