Haywire

 

I’m super excited to watch Gina Carano in Haywire. Reviews have been good if not mixed. What’s BETTER than watching a very attractive woman beat the shit out of people? Maybe having sex with her. OR letting her beat you up so maybe you can sneak in a feel. The picture is OBVIOUSLY not Miss Carano. I THINK it’s Candice Swanepoel, I stole the picture from the Victoria’s Secret Facebook page, but I’m not sure. In any case, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, so the gentleman-like thing to do is buy your girlfriend sexy underwear. It’s science.

I’m Super Excited

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were at Comic-Con to discuss and promote The Green Lantern. This movie is going to be fucking awesome. Ryan Reynolds has the body of Hercules and Blake Lively looks like the hottest chick you never went to high school with. That was a pretty bad joke. Just go watch the movie when it comes out.

Pop Quiz, Hot Shot

No matter how you cut it, it’s heart breaking. Dennis Hopper died May 29, 2010 at the age of 74, losing his long battle with prostate cancer. I will always remember him as the bad ass lunatic in Speed. I also thought he was amazing opposite Christopher Walken in Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance. His film Easy Rider, with Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson is recognized as an important piece of American history. His career was long and tough, he often found himself out of a job for years at a time, but he will always be remembered for his energy and playing characters to the beat of his own cannon.

Hollywood Racism

I’m not going to lie, when I saw the trailer to The Last Airbender, one of the first questions that popped into my head was, “Is that a white kid playing Ang?” Perhaps it does have to do with social insecurity, but at the same time, not making light of these concerns allows these subtle acts of racial inequality to continue in this day and age. Now The Last Airbender and The Prince of Persia with Jake Gyllenhaal are catching heat for having the characters of color portrayed by whites.

They say “Airbender” casting is just the latest example of a long history in Hollywood of demeaning people of color – from having white actors in makeup portray minorities to sidelining them in second-tier roles to replacing them entirely, as they say is the case with “Airbender.”

They point to examples like the 2008 film “21,” which was based on a book inspired by the true-life story of a mostly Asian American group of card players, yet was cast with mostly white actors in the main roles.

They also note this weekend’s release of “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” a live-action adaptation of a video game that stars white actor Jake Gyllenhaal in the title role instead of an actor with a Middle Eastern background.

“This part really needed to go to someone who’s Persian,” said Jehanzeb Dar, a blogger and independent filmmaker who is a fan of the video game but has no intention of supporting the movie.

“It’s not only insulting to Persians, it’s also insulting to white people. It’s saying white people can’t enjoy movies unless the protagonist is white,” he said.

Disney did not return an e-mail asking for comment on the casting.”

Some of my (6) readers might point out that directors envision these creative worlds differently, or that some actors can transcend the barriers of race to portray quality characters. Maybe, but if Mel Gibson cast Denzel Washington to play Jesus, or Oliver Stone asked Benicio Del Toro to play George W. Bush, how would the white audience feel? It would be pretty ridiculous right? Then why would you ask a white guy to play a Middle Eastern guy? Or a white kid to play a Chinese kid? It’s the exact same thing. I hope both of these movies get panned by critics and are flops so they get taught a valuable lesson: China = The Future.

Erection, I Mean Correction

Filed under: Hot Chicks, Movies — Tags: , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 12:09 PM

My mistake, it seems as though Megan Fox’s replacement in Transformers 3 will not be Ms. Strawberry Fields, but Rosie Huntington Whitely. Hopefully she can put up with Michael Bay’s abuse better than Megan. To be fair, when you look as good as these women do to start with, is it that much harder to look that much hotter? That’s like asking a fat guy to be fat. I’m sure he won’t need to exert himself.

I’m Broke

Filed under: Movies, News — Tags: , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 1:32 AM


Gizmodo reports that some movie theaters in New York City are charging $20 dollars a movie ticket for the IMAX screens. That’s retarded considering I paid $13.50 to watch Avatar in IMAX and it nearly made me want to rob a bank afterward. I think that’s a terrible idea because this gives people less incentive to go to the theater. They can just download it illegally or stream it online. Maybe that’s why they jacked up the price. That or they’re just assholes. And if I learned anything in my life, most people are just assholes.

Megan’s Law

Filed under: Hot Chicks, Movies — Tags: , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 1:17 AM

For the sake of her career and any future abuse to her wonderful body, Megan Fox has reported that it was her deciscion to leave Transformers 3.

Megan Fox is seeking to transform rumor to fact. The actress is slamming speculation she was booted from the third installment of the Transformers action film franchise. “Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3,” reps for the actress, 24, tell PEOPLE. “It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best.”

We all know Megan didn’t get along well with Michael Bay, who is reported a lunatic on set. But let’s not kid ourselves, being a movie genius comes with a price. That and he was “abusive.” Sexually? Verbally? We can only imagine. I can’t afford Megan Fox, but if she’s interested in doing some indie films, I have a great idea for one. It’s this movie about this girl who goes to this guy’s house to hang out, and they just end up having sex for 3 hours. Coincidentally, all the sex is real and the casting crew decided to select me as the male lead. Let me know what you think, Megan.

In better news, Gemma Arterton, Ms. Strawberry Fields from James Bond – Quantum of Solace, is Megan’s replacement.

My Picks for the 82nd Academy Awards

Best Actress In A Supporting Role – Vera Farmiga

Not only was Up in the Air critically acclaimed, but Vera is not afraid to get naked (Running Scared). Also, I loved her in The Departed.

Best Actor In A Supporting Role – Christoph Waltz

If Cristoph Waltz didn’t make you shit your pants with his performance in Inglourious Basterds, then you were clearly watching a different movie. This guy was amazing and he’s going to take this award home well deserved. What I don’t get is why Matt Damon wasn’t nominated for his role as a rat in The Departed, but got nominated for playing a rugby player. Essentially to prepare for that role, they told him to play rugby.

Best Actress In A Leading Role – Gabourey Sidibe

I haven’t seen Precious, but the Academy (more recently) is prone to giving this award away almost randomly (Halle Berry) regardless of whether they truly deserve it (Kate Winslet) or not (Reese Witherspoon). At least Precious dealt with some serious shit or something. Besides, Sandra Bullock is not an Academy Award kind of actress, Helen Mirren already won one for The Queen and Meryl Streep seems to just get nominated for fun these days.

Best Actor In A Leading – George Clooney

Up in the Air does everything right, and I can see Clooney walking away with this one. Jeff Bridges was robbed an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Big Lebowski, but I don’t know if this is his year. Also, I think it’d be absolutely ridiculous for Morgan Freeman (who is an excellent actor and I love his voice) to win just because he played Nelson Mandela. Invictus was about rugby. You think about that.

Best Director – Kathryn Bigelow



I want more than anything for Quentin Tarantino to win for Inglourious, but the Academy is far from being that cool. The person I do NOT want winning it is James Cameron. Just because Terminator, Titanic, and True Lies were bad ass films, doesn’t mean making shit blow up in 3-D and having a generic ass plot make a movie amazing.

Best Original Screenplay – Inglourious Basterds

This is not even debatable. If you think otherwise, I’m absolutely positive you have no idea what a screenplay is.

Best Picture – District 9

This is definitely the dark horse of the Awards. Considering Slumdog Millionaire almost went straight to DVD and won Best Picture (and Best Director along with a slew of other crazy shit), District 9 was a film that was not only entertaining, it was suspenseful, thought provoking, and showed man at his best and worst. If it were up to me, I’d also give this award to Quentin Tarantino, but like I said, the Academy is not that cool. I will really hate the Academy if they give this shit to Avatar, fuck that film. I will cry (again) if they give it to Up because that movie not only touched my heart, but it also touched my weiner.

The Expendables

Filed under: Movies — Tags: , , , , — DBNewsWorld @ 10:48 AM

I think people are full of shit. They’ll go out and watch fucking awful ass movies. Those movies usually feature terrible dialogue, no character development, and endless plot holes, yet they loved it. God only knows why. Assuming whatever God is exists. In any case, then a movie like The Expendables comes out, and it’s an all out, balls-to-the-walls, action packed, classic throwback to when people use to do cool shit and you didn’t need a reason for things to fucking explode in your face. All of a sudden, everyone is a fucking movie critic. Shut the fuck up. Yes, you. If you can appreciate what Sylvester Stallone is doing for audiences who still remotely have a pulse, then definitely check out this film. There is a ridiculous trailer through the source link.
