10 Cloverfield Lane Will Have You Writhing The Whole Way Through

13 days ago
Nowadays the film industry seems tospend so much period building up the hype that by the time a movie makes the big screen weve insured a teaser, three trailers, and pretty much know exactly whats going to happen including spoilers .

10 Cloverfield Lane is a freshening change from that somewhat saturating tradition. It wasnt until January, merely two months prior to the opening of the films release, that we were even made aware that it existed.

Its not really a sequel to the alien attack movie Cloverfield, but more like a distant, less showy relative, with both having spawned from JJ Abrams production company Bad Robot. Whereas Cloverfield showed us the Statue of Libertys head crashing into the street as a whole city disintegrated, 10 Cloverfield Lane barely leaves the underground bunker in which most of the film is set.

Being less showy doesnt mean its any less entertaining, though. The movie will have you either writhe or jumping out of your seat from before the opening credits are over, right up until the very end. It’s director Dan Trachtenberg’s first feature length cinema, but he pulls ofthis spiraling thriller as though he’s done it a thousand times before.

The film starts out with Michelle( Mary Elizabeth Winstead) dismissing bellows from her fianc as she drives in her car. After being run off the road she wakes up in an empty room where she soon gratifies her captor or saviour Howard( John Goodman) who tells her that the world outside is a nuclear desert, and that they must live underground for at the least a year to remain safe. We live Michelles dread with her, questioning the legitimacy of Howards claims and motivations as she slowly tries to decipher exactly what “the hells going on”. Is Howard right? Does leaving the bunker entail certain demise? Or is something more sinister happening?

The third character in the mix is the jovial Emmett( John Gallagher Jr ), a local worker who has known Howard for some time. Emmett provides the only glimpses of light relief from the incredibly weird and intense Howard.

John Goodman plays Howard brilliantly, his huge frame and sketchy stance combining well to intimidate the whole way through. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr are equally as good, and its the three of them that elevate this film from a tight script and well thought out idea to something that really get under your skin.

The less you know before ensure it, the more you will enjoy the film, so we wont be revealing any spoilers here. What we will say is that if your heart rate and stress levels don’t go up during the course of its movie then you really are made of stone.

10 Cloverfield Lane is out in cinemas this Friday .

Hundreds Of Loved Up Irish Fans Serenade A Beautiful French Girl

1 month, 10 days ago
Have you ever seen person in public so beautiful that you’ve wanted to stop and sing to them until they eventually and inevitably get off with you? No, me neither- we don’t live in High School Musical … still, it’s fun to find hot people .

That’s what happened in Bordeaux when, after a 3-0 loss to Belgium, Ireland fans, still in high spirits, spotted a lovely blonde French girl and took it upon themselves to serenade her.

If ever you’ve wanted to see a video that compounds Irish stereotypes, this is it. Never have you heard so much slurred singing and the mumbled, incorrect terms of two ballads that are pretty easy to recollect … funny though.

One guy managed to sneak a cheeky kiss at the end; albeit one on the cheek but, you know … she’s hot so it all counts.

Odds on that he thought there’d be some sort of Richard Curtis style holiday romance after that, though … Seems like Ireland are pretty much out of the Euros so he requires something to cheer him up!

Vogue Brazil’s Paralympics Photoshoot Is Unbelievably Offensive

2 months, 15 days ago
The Paralympics is an inspiration. Each athlete that takes part is overcoming a disability to compete and show us that with the right attitude, anything is possible .

People such as Tanni Grey-Thompson, who has won 16 Paralympic medals, show their fans across the globe that you can combat against adversity and still be a win, still be proud of yourself.

That’s why Vogue Brazil’s decision touse able bodied performers in their campaignis so disappointing. Instead of featuring Paralympic athletes, they chose to photoshop Cleo Pires and Paulo Vilhena, actors and Paralympic ambassadors, to appear as though they havedisabilities. It went with the caption “we are all Paralympians.”

The campaign is aimed to tie in with the upcoming Paralympics in Rio and increase ticket sales. The shoot wasactually based on two Paralympians, Bruna Alexandre and Renato Leite, but for some bizarre reason the athletes were not featured on the main pages.

Pessoal, Venho esclarecer que estou super orgulhosa de fazer parte desta campanha que a revista #Vogue comeou a divulgar as primeiras imagens desse lindo trabalho. Nossos Embaixadores Paralmpicos Cleo Pires e Paulo Vilhena , nos ajudaram a intensificar e a propagar a campanha com intuito de gerar visibilidade ao Movimento Paralmpico e convocar a torcida brasileira para marcar presena nos Jogos Paralmpicos Rio 2016. Gostaria, de enfatizar que #SomosTodosIguais e por isso a Cleo Pires me representa. Nos prximos dias, vocs tero acesso completo da campanha. #VemComAGenteBrasil e espero contar com toda a torcida brasileira nas arenas assim torcendo, vibrando, cantando e comemorando conosco! #CarregoNoPeito o #CoraoParalmpico. @cleopires_oficial @vilhenap @ocpboficial

Criticism has been widespread . Vogue Brazil have distanced themselves from the campaign, saying that the idea came from Pires.Speaking to HuffPostUK, they said 😛 TAGEND

“Vogue respects the opinions of readers who disagreed with the campaign format, but reiterates its commitment to promote the importance of Paralympic games. We will continue to support all of the Paralympic committee initiatives that can increase the number of attendees at the Paralympic games.”

Why not just feature the real people that inspired the campaign?

Mix Nerdy Jokes And Underwear And You Get PUNDERWEAR

3 months, 7 days ago
Underwear. When you think about it, it’s more of a means to an end, really. No one genuinely want’s to have to wear it .

It’s not without it’s sub-genres, all as pointless as each other- Boxers, briefs, thongs, boy shorts, etc etc … Even sexy underwear isn’t as sexy as no underwear. So what’s the incentive to wear it?( other than social constructs that we really should follow in this case …)

Puns. Plainly. Nerd puns. Nerd puns with the prospect of sexupon the removal of saidunderwear. That’s the stuff. Have a look…

Shut up. I always sit with a pillow on my lap.

The last one took us longer to work out than we care to admit…

Trophy Kids Is A Haunting Documentary For All The Wrong Reason

3 months, 15 days ago
Trophy Kids was released in 2013, but I only recently arrived across it on Netflix and it left me with a gloomy feeling in my intestine that I haven’t been able to shake .

The documentary takes an intense look at overbearing parents who want their kids to become huge athletics stars.We join them at a few moments in “peoples lives” when the mothers are realising whether or not all the time and money they have invested will come to any kind of fruition.

The film opens with 15 -year-old Justus spending a bleak morning all padded up to practice American football game with his father, Joe. Joe calls and shouts at him, berating the poor kid for pretty much every move he makes. Justus retains asullenlook throughout the movie, he is terrified of the wrath of his father, and it seems that no matter what he does it isn’t good enough.

Joe is a kettle constantly at boiling point. Perhaps the most upsetting moment comes when he takes Justus to visit hismother. As the three of them drive along Joe lays into Justusabout having a girlfriend, before viciously telling him that he has no right to choose the topic of dialogue. Justusfightsback the tears buthis father refuses to relent- apparently unaware of just how much misery he is throwing upon his own son.

Joe isn’t alone in his approach. Andre, the parent of preteen Amari, an aspire golfer, is forever cursing his daughter under his breath as he follows her around the golf course. The tension between the two is almost unbearable as he appears to take all of her enjoyment out of video games bymaking menaces such as “I’m going to smacking you in the mouth.”

There’s a telling moment as the two of them walk along the fairway, bickering with each other. A hundred feet or so in front is a father holding his daughter’s hand as they move onto the next shot. The contrast between the two families is poignant, the amount of pressure Andrelays upon her young shoulders is infuriating.

Then we have the two basketball talents, Ian and Derek, whose respective fathers constantly fume over the team’s coach. Derek’s dad quit his nine businesses and 80 odd employees to dedicate his entire life to ensure his sonhits the big time. He gets so pumped-up and angry at the refs that you can’t help but feel sorry for anyone sat near him.

The common thread here is that all of the parents want to control the environment their kids are in, and they believe that by doing so they can pushing them towards sporting greatness. The mom of twins, who she believes willbe the best tennis double act in the world, is at least slightly different in that her position in thatisn’t so negative. For her, everything is God’s will.

The distorted irony is that in wanting the best for their kids, these mothers seem to be suffocating them, taking some of the exhilaration out of their childhood. It’s agreat documentary in the morbidly fascinating kind of style, but if you’re looking for something feel good then perhaps leave this one for another time.

George Takei Takes Down Internet Troll And Reminds Us What A Legend He Is

3 months, 23 days ago

Trolling George Takei is not a good idea, and one internet user simply learnt itthe hard way .

With not a lot of love for theStar Trek actor, this guy chose the best place to air his negative viewswould be facebook.

Tagging George( his main error ), he set out his views 😛 TAGEND

While the Star Trek actor has probably heard worse than’ you suck’, the opportunity for some counter-trolling was too good to pass up 😛 TAGEND

That George Takei is one cheeky devil. AndWajih Kelly assured the error of his styles. He responded 😛 TAGEND

We would definitely want to be friends with George Takei. Check out how he responded toanti-equal marriage protesters earlier this year 😛 TAGEND

So much sass…

That sounds like our kind of island…

We also believe in proper grammar.

Just legendary…

Takei also made headlines earlier this year, when hetook down infamous homophobe Kim Davis( who- by the way- still hasn’t responded to offers to shoot a lesbian porn scene …).

He criticised her refusal to issue marriage licences to same sex couples, saying 😛 TAGEND

“She is entitled to hold her religious beliefs, but not to impose those beliefs on others.If she had denied matrimony certifications to an interracial couple, would people cheer her?

In our society, we obey civil laws , not religious ones.To suggest otherwise is, simply put, solely un-American.”

George, we love you. Never change .

Angry Mum Publicly Shamed Her’ Bullying Son’ On Facebook

4 months, 11 days ago
Nobody likes a bully. It must be pretty disappointing if you find out or suspect that your kid is one .

That’s what happened to Terry Evans, and her approach to dealing with it had now been run viral. Terry was angry that her 12 -year-old son had purposely trod on a new girl’s foot at school, violating her shoe in the process. So she took to Facebook and went on a bit of a rant. Terry advises her son that if he does something like it again, he’ll be packed off to the victim’s parents home where they can give him as many chores as they like.

Absolutely disgusted that my 12 year old son assured fit to purposefully tread on a new girls foot at school and twist his…

Posted by Terri Day Evans onMonday, 22 February 2016

Terry’s post says :

Perfectly disgusted that my 12 year old son saw fit to purposefully tread on a new girls foot at school and twist his foot with such force it broke her brand new shoes( causing the heel) to snap. Ill tell you something jacob( JustPost Rng Photos) if you so much as breath in her or anyone’s direction in a bully way I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do … kiss goodbye to your birthday fund as you will be buying the girl a new pair of shoes and a bunch of blooms! #iwillnothaveabullyinmyhouse

Update. To answer a few questions, yes my son can see it, he was tagged in it before it ran viral( which I didn’t realise was going to happen) so his friends could see that his actions have consequences, he is not big, clever, hard or funny, he’s a 12 year old boy answerable to his mam. I don’t much care who doesn’t agree with my parenting style, my son humiliated and embarrassed a girl, irrespective of his reasoning( which is now being he didn’t expect to break the shoe he merely thought she may step out of it or stumble) that “girls ” still exclaimed, for anyone’s knowledge that girl may have left her old school because she was being bullied … then imagine how much worse my son’s ridiculous act would have attained her feeling. So my so called embarrassing him online is a to be quite frankly nothing in comparison to the humiliation that little girl had to face walking round with a broken shoe and red eyes from weeping when she is new . Ps … of course I sat and spoke to him about his behaviour, I didn’t simply tag him in a post and he read it! I am wholly confident this was a single occurrence which won’t be repeated .

What do you think? Is this good parenting? Let’s hope he got her something nice for Mother’s Day …

Kim Kardashian Calls Out Taylor Swift For’ Playing The Victim Again’

4 months, 15 days ago
News moves on pretty quickly these days, so you’ve probably already forgotten about the Taylor/ Kanye drama from a while back. I’ll let you rack your brains for a minute and see if it comes back to you …

Got a vague recollection? Good.

In February, Kanye played a new song called Famous at his Madison Square Garden album launch show. In the song, Kanye raps, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I stimulated that bitch famous . …. Awks.

Following the release of the anthem, Kanye claimed that Taylor not only personally signed off on the lyrics, but came up with them herself.

Taylors team, on the other hand, claims that shedid no such thing and was not made aware.

@kimkardashian has a few things to get down her chest. Read the full GQ cover story at the link in bio.( by @mertalas and @macpiggott )

A photo posted by GQ (@ gq) on Jun 16, 2016 at 7:26 am PDT

In her interviewwith GQ, Knaye’s wifeKim K spoke out on the topic and called bullsh* t, saying ;P TAGEND

She altogether approved that. She wholly knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didnt.

She continues 😛 TAGEND

I dont know why she only, you know, flipped all of a sudden It was funny because[ on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that Im so against this, and Ill just chuckle and say, The gags on you, guys. I was in on it the whole period. And Im like, await, but[ in] your Grammy speech, you totally dissed my husband only to play the victim again.

Uh oh. Kim also claims theres video proof that this conversation happened because there were videographers there documenting the process of developing the album. However, surely Kanye would have released it by now if that were true?

According to Kim, however, Taylor knows the footage exists because, allegedlyKanye received an attorneys letter saying, Dont ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.

Can you handle @kimkardashian’s NSFW GQ photoshoot? We’ll be adding newand even sexierphotos throughout the day. Go to the link in bio for the first round( by @mertalas and @macpiggott) #UnitedStatesofKimerica

GQ contacted Taylors team for a reply, and while a spokesperson declined to answer specific questions, a statement was provided basically sayingthat Taylor heard the sung for the first time when everyone else did.

And it ended with this cracker 😛 TAGEND

Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.

Uh oh .
