Now let me preface the upcoming rant by saying I don't mind people playing games in their free time. I do mind people playing them all the time, behind the wheel or - and that is a true story - in Auschwitz.
Let me get this straight - people are falling off bridges while chasing Pokemon.
This is the world we live in.
People...falling off bridges....chasing POKEMON.
Am I supposed to not laugh about that?
Cause that ship has sailed.
I keep hearing how amazing it is that the young people got out of their houses and are exercising. It got to the point in this sick society where people need to be tricked with pixel animals (actually what exactly are Pokemon? You know what, don't tell me, the less I know, the better) to move their lazy asses.
I sit here, amazed. I spent most of my life studying to have a good job. I have it now and though I earn well I have very little energy left. I do exercise without the need to chase some imaginary crap while doing so. But I don't really have the time or energy or interest to do much more than occasionally see a movie, post here, hopefully 2 a week, and hang out with people I like. I'm in my twenties and though I love cinema there are times I don't go to cinema for weeks because I'm just too tired from working and everything else adult life entails. Who the hell are these adults who have the energy to walk around the city and look for pokemons? Are my taxes paying for that? They are, aren't they?
Seriously those smartphones, while used on bridges and highways, seem to work like natural selection.
This week has been a goldmine for RF because Lena Dunham has been talking. First she decided to vandalize Jason Bourne posters because there is a gun on them so that's bad because glorification of guns = dead people. Never mind the fact that she was in that Taylor Swift video with half naked chicks SHOOTING MACHINE GUNS.
Oh, but it gets better.
You see, the morons who attend the same university Dunham did say that incorrectly prepared sushi is offensive.
These are the kind of people who should play Pokemon Go....
...in the middle of a highway.
know what this university should do? They should gather those students of
"liberal acts" (they are basically "studying" to mooch off their
parents for the rest of their lives while they are being pretentious
twats) and send them to Siberia, also making sure they have buckets for
toilets and sawdust instead of toilet paper.
Another group of people who are
also in desperate need of reality check are entertainment writers and
people who are professionally outraged. Not everyone knows hashtag history. In fact knowing something like hashtag history is probably not something to be proud of.
When your politicians act like this, USA, forget about hashtags.
Mick Jagger, 72, expecting his eight kid. This time with 29-year old. Even to me that is messed up.
that time I wrote about The Devil Wears Prada turning 10 years old and
we all felt old? Well, guess what? Legally Blondeturned 15 on Wednesday.
We have the first official look on The Dark Tower:
They aren't lettingHelen Mirrendrive in F&F. What is this all about then?
Meanwhile shrewd mouse's ex boyfriend said some stuff. I am at least familiar with Katy Perry's music. I barely know who Harris is and my only contact with Swift was brief 30 seconds of the dying cat parade called 'Bad Blood' they showed this week on the news while discussing how rich she is.
Lainey has a great point though. 15 months they were dating. Surely he has more.
Boy, I do love good revenge.
Jennifer Aniston had the audacity to whine about fame, paparazzi and worst of all women image and LaineyGossip handed her ass to her. A week ago I whined about woman's image in media. I have the right to do that. Aniston who goes around talking how she is always on diet and has no cheat day (I'm convinced a year into my diet that a cheat day on Friday is the only reason I'm still alive), poses naked on the covers of magazines and constantly talks of her private life doesn't get to talk in accusatory tone. She is the one to blame for the fucked up image too.
Speaking of ladies' image...
I have no idea whether new Ghosbusters movie is good, mediocre or a total trainwreck. There are so many people with agendas - let's rate it higher because I'm a woman, let's rate it 1 because I'm a guy, let's say it's good because I'm a movie critic with NO BALLS and I'm scared of backlash - that I don't know who to trust and whether to spent what is left of my energy and go see it. Seriously the bloggers in our blogosphere are the only people I trust anymore because they ain't getting paid for their opinion. Nor are they - hopefully - deranged enough to think imdb ratings matter. So I'm gonna wait for you guys to tell me whether or not to see it.
Look it's possible the film sucks. But you know what? This. Those
little girls won't look at the film and think oh it's an unnecessary remake of the
classic! oh no, it's the same jokes again! They will think it's awesome
that women are kicking ass. Regular women, not action heroine built chicks like Sarah Connor or Ripley. When I was growing up there were no flicks like this. Flicks where nerdy or awkward or shy girls got to lead the movie along with other girls and kick ass. Maybe I'd be a better adjusted adult if there were (my only solace is that at least I'm not looking for Pokemon. No, seriously. It's the only solace). If anything, if 90% of people won't like it
but few little girls will think they can be anyone they want, it was
Regardless you should check out the movie's imdb board. Holy God.
has an idea how to make men's heads explode. I'm not sure this is a
good thought - many men already see all women as bitches and want to destroy
them, why give them cinematic "evidence" for that? Oh, because they
would use a movie as a proof, trust me.
La La Land trailer is here and it's magically lovely. Between this and The Nice Guys...yeah I kinda see why girls like Gosling. Wouldn't kick him out of bed.
manages to gross me out again. Is it Leto? I hope not. One of the
commentators says Leto likes choking chicks during sex. That is a better
option than what that article is detailing.
Leto took a selfie of himself as the Joker and it's the stuff of
nightmares. Few things scare me anymore but this is creepy.
Have you seen the details of the new
photos? The mouth tattoo on Joker's hand or Harley's necklace saying
'Joker' as well as the fact that "Daddy's little monster" is not just
something written on her shirt, but also a tattoo. Very cool stuff and
what a great design.
There's also this awesome animation/spot of Harley Margot shared on her instagtam.
There's also one for Enchantress and I love the outfit of her character so much.
Also David Ayer talked to Slash magazine and said that this version of the Joker is gonna be stylish and is the kind of person who has to know what Prada outfits will be for next season. I love that. The Joker was always portrayed as very stylish in the comics and it fits so well with his narcissistic personality.
Concept art for Harely's outfits. And here is some interesting info about the film, I love how much detail went into those tattoos and what Margot had to say about Harley's ones.
One of the Skarsgard brothers is playing the new clown in It remake and here is the first look at the character.
Emmy nominations! Big congrats to Kit Harington and Maisie Williams scoring their first nominations for Game of Thrones. Those are very well deserved, as is Lena Headey's nomination. Peter Dinklage at least had that lovely dragon scene but why the hell is Emilia Clarke nominated? She is all right but at that point she has three nominations. This is ridiculous. Not as ridiculous as Max von Sydow scoring a nomination just for showing up because let's face it he wasn't given anything to do. I'm still laughing about the fact Ian McShane chose to submit himself for two other shows but not Thrones. But the big snub? Jon Bernthal. What the hell?
And finally here is Samuel L. Jackson's beginners guide to Thrones. You must listen to this.
