Funnily enough, one of those guys played Renton in a stage production of Trainspotting recently.

Does anyone remember the scene in Groundhog Day where Rita and Phil are building a snowman for the second time? Phil is trying to recapture the joy they felt when they first built a snowman, but Rita's response is like, "what the hell are you doing?" That's how I'm starting to feel about all of these live-action reboots.

I'd hesitate even calling this particular one live-action. Just a CGI animated remake.

Maybe, if the film does well at the box office, and given the success of Into the Spiderverse we might someday get a cartoon remake of this classic tale? Sure, you've seen the Broadway production, you watched the uncanny CGI remake, you own the sound track, you even own Lion King branded French Toast Holders, but now Disney proudly presents a cartoon based on the original.

FUCK YOU is the story of a Swedish teenager named Gina who shoplifts a strap-on and sees what wearing it brings out in her male friends.

The boys of FUCK YOU are brash, macho, peacocking sorts of lads. They show their bravado by how much pain they can take, how high they can jump, and other such silly displays of masculinity. Their faces when confronted with another symbol of masculinity on one of their female friends are priceless.

Director Anette Sidor rightly assumes that boys would look at a girl like Gina, and be threatened by her newfound appendage. They presume she doesn’t know what to do with it (news flash: it ain’t complicated, boys), and that she is something…other.

A girl like Gina is not just another pretty lass impressed by machismo. While she might have found her way into this moment on youthful impulsiveness, she quickly finds her eyes opened with maturity about what a simple challenge to masculinity brings about in the boys around her. The question this movie poses is less what she will “do with that” than what the boys around her will do.

The question gorgeously goes beyond sex and kink – it’s a direct challenge to young patriarchy, and an affecting one at that.

The boys of the world need to catch up quick: The patriarchy is at long last being looked in the eye and confronted. How men respond to that confrontation will speak volumes about their place in the new world order.

That's what they're saying.

I was stoked to see Lando, the biggest pimp in the galaxy.

Shepherds we shall be, for thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be.

this teaser does not quell my concerns that Star Wars will continue recycling its own mythos in perpetuity. I could be wrong but I have at least four movies to back me up.

though in all seriousness I hope the rest of y'all like it. or that if y'all don't, you're not too troubled by that.

also that title feels like a "fuck you" to Rian Johnson.

My response to these movies is increasingly indifference.

Lucy Hale, Lucas Till to Star in Spike Lee’s Civil Rights Drama Son of the South:
“Son of the South” is based on the Bob Zellner autobiography, “The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement.” Zellner, an Alabama native and grandson of a Ku Klux Klan member, is pulled into the center of the civil rights movement in 1961.

Till (the “X-Men” franchise) is starring as Zellner and Hale as Carol Ann, Zellner’s college girlfriend. Lex Scott Davis (“Superfly”) is also starring along with Julia Ormond as Virginia Durr, Cedric the Entertainer as Reverend Ralph Abernathy and Sharonne Lanier as Rosa Parks. Brian Dennehy plays Zellner’s grandfather. Chaka Forman is portraying his activist father Jim Forman.

Lee is executive producing with his longtime editor Barry Alexander Brown directing from his own screenplay. Lee won the Academy Award for the “BlacKkKlansman” adapted screenplay and Brown received an editing nomination.

“Son of the South” has started shooting in Montgomery, Ala., where many of the events took place. The producers are Colin Bates of Lucidity Entertainment (“Maggie,” “Kidnap”) Stan Erdreich, of River Bend Pictures (“Coming Through The Rye”), Eve Pomerance (“As Good As Dead”) Bill Black (“Bayou Caviar”) and David Kang (“Bodied,” “Skin”).

Lee and Brown’s collaboration dates back to 1986’s “She’s Gotta Have It,” and includes “Do the Right Thing,” “Malcolm X,” and “Inside Man.” Brown also co-directed the Academy Award-nominated documentary “The War at Home.”

Yes.
That's an excellent parallel.
