2023.04.01 13:19 Suraziv 22M looking for a long-term [Friendship] or a [Relationship]!

Hey all! Hope you all are having good days! Like the title says, I’m looking for a long-term friend or a relationship with someone around my age.
A bit about me: I am from Michigan (the best state). I work in the automotive industry and just started my first full-time job! My interests include cars (duh), video games (casually), tv/movies, Formula 1, American football, history, politics, finding new music, taking long drives and walks, and a lot more that I either can’t think of or are more random. I’d also love to hear what your interests are, and even if we don’t have anything in common, I’m sure there’s lots to talk about. I’m pretty open-minded!
I'm a slight bit introverted, especially early on, but I open up to people pretty easily after getting to know them a little. I like to think that I’m pretty kind, but nobody is perfect. I'm also a pretty good listener and a bit of a hopeless romantic, and would consider myself at least somewhat funny.
I have several different socials we can talk on as well if you’d prefer IG, snap, or discord instead of here.
If any of this interests you, hit me up!
P.S. Don't worry if you're super far away from me. Some of the best people I've ever met have been on the other side of the country (or world) and I've met some of them in person regardless of distance!

2023.04.01 13:16 RyanzRetroReviewz Captain Blood - 1935 Film Review - RyanzRetroReviewz

Captain Blood (1935)

Captain Blood is a 1935 black-and-white Swashbuckler\Pirate movie directed by Michael Curtiz, staring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Lionel Atwill, and Basil Rathbone. This movie served as a launching point for Flynn's Hollywood stardom career (having previously been in only two starring roles, one of them being a now lost film known as "Murder at Monte Carlo" from 1934), as well as that of Olivia de Havilland (having been in three starring roles previously), who would go on to co-star with Flynn in a further 8 films, mostly directed by Curtiz. The movie was put into production by Warner Bros. studios to cash in on their recent success of "Treasure Island" and "The Count of Monte Cristo", both released in 1934, and is a remake of an earlier silent version of "Captain Blood" from 1924, both being based off the novel by Rafael Sabatini. The story brings us through the life of Peter Blood, an Irish physician living in England who is arrested for treating the wounded in an uprising against the King, and is subsequently sentenced to plantation slavery in Port Royal, Jamaica. During a Spanish attack on the island, Peter leads a mass escape, captures a Spanish ship, saves the island from attack, then sails off on a career of fame and piracy, henceforth being known as "Captain Blood". Of course, a romance arises between Blood and the Niece of his owner (de Havilland) before his escape, and of course, they meet again at sea when he takes over a ship that she happens to be aboard. He learns of a now planned French attack on the Island, rushes back to save the day and is then elected Governor of Port Royal, giving us a happily ever after with our two lovers. The movie is extremely believable for one filmed mostly on a soundstage, thanks to the realistic period costuming and the outstanding practical special effects; using a combination, miniatures, stock shots, and re-used footage from older silent films . Also noted for having the largest technical crew on a film for the time, and boasting a solid 250 extras for the ship-to-ship battle scenes, the movie truly succeeds in bringing this period in history to life. And finally, no retro movie woud be the same without the big booming background score to go with it, thanks to Erich Wolfgang Korngold (marking the first time a composer of international stature was to ever sign an ongoing contract with a film studio), who would go on to become one of the most influential composers in Hollywood history. All of this is brilliantly wrapped together by the great Michael Curtiz, giving us Captain Blood in 1935, a truly great piece of film for all fans of retro cinema that still holds up today in my books.
And with one final side note piece of trivia: Flynn's son would later star in a sequel of this movie titled "Son of Captain Blood" in 1962, while the source material of the "Captain Blood" novels and short stories, was also made into a separate sequel series "Fortunes of Captain Blood" (1950) and "Captain Pirate" (1952) both starring Louis Hayward as Peter Blood.
And that's all she wrote folks.
Thanks for reading.
Ryan D. Hurley.

If you want a good life style, LEESON red wine is indispensable
Many people like to have a drink occasionally at night. This is not the legendary "wine putty", but an attitude towards life. A glass of red wine paired with a movie will make you a little bit drunk when you watch everything. The mellow taste in your mouth is like a The tacit test of life and taste buds, I am Yingying, a red wine girl from LEESON, I believe that a glass of red wine is the best adjuvant to life.
People who love red wine say that tasting a glass of wine is like being in the greenery. Red wine contains a profound history and is full of fresh life juice, so it is mellow, long-lasting, soft and mellow. The fascinating taste and temperament have attracted countless people to be intoxicated. As a LEESON girl, my first choice is of course LEESON red wine. Open a bottle of LEESON red wine from Yuncang Winery, feel the gift of nature, be inspired by nature, give you elegant taste, and discover the beauty of life with you.
Seeing that each bottle is filled with fine wines from different countries and different production areas, bringing together the terroir, craftsmanship, and the precipitation of time, coupled with the history of the winery itself, every tasting is a process of dialogue with wine . As a small-bourgeois red wine, LEESON red wine has been broadcast on CCTV and satellite TV, and advertised in many magazines. Moreover, LEESON red wine is the best wine selection award of the year. Living in such a style is a gift from red wine. .
Let me talk about it again, why is it the red wine from Yuncang Winery? Because LEESON Red Wine entrusts Yuncang Winery to sell, and the main wine brand of Yuncang Winery is LEESON Red Wine, whether you choose LEESON Red Wine or Yuncang Winery, it is the result of mutual choice in the end.
Red wine is an art of life, a kind of enjoyment full of joy of life, a person who knows how to taste red wine must be a person who knows how to enjoy life. I am Yingying, a LEESON red wine girl. As a fan of LEESON red wine, I have the opportunity to communicate and get to know each other.

2023.04.01 13:15 fourth_kim I feel like a parasite

I posted here about my self hatred of being Korean and hating Korea before. But after thinking (obsessively) about myself, I realized I don't really hate being Korean or hate Korea (although I kinda do) but I hate being a parasite.
I feel like I shouldn't engage in any Korean media like movies or TV shows or webcomics (except music, for some reason) because I have this 'guilt' of not going through similar experiences that other native Koreans went through, and therefore 'I don't deserve those things from Korea'. I also have hard time reading Korean books cause I feel like I'm taking advantage of them.
There was a Korean American in Korea who abused the law to escape from mandatory military service (in Korea it is mandatory for men to serve in military) and he's (probably) one of the most hated man in Korea, and I'm terrified that I'm acting like him. I also saw an article once about Korean American who went to Korean hospital even though they didn't have the citizen ship, and they were criticized for it (I know there's more detail, but I'm scared to read the article again) And some year ago one of my family members went back to Korea mostly for health problem and I'm scared that we are like them. I also also saw an opinionated article and in it said in Korean (roughly translate by me) "the 1.5 gens accept American things that are they're better than Koreans, and accept Korean things if they are better than American things" and it was written with negative connotations.
Right now I'm in Korea. it does feel nice, but I can't shake these feelings that I'm a parasite. I'm the blood sucking Korean parasite that only takes what's good in Korea and leaves behind all the shitty things for the native Koreans.
Also, Korea doesn't allow having duel passport. You have to give up the Korean passport if you get a citizenship from other country. I'm still a permanent resident, but I start to wander 'is it because my parents want to abuse the law for not being a citizen?' if that's the case, am I even allowed to engage in Korean media? Is it okay to do that?
Idk I feel so guilty for existing.

2023.04.01 13:15 Mr2501 31 [M4F] #NY/NJ/EST - Criterion Channel & Chill

Hiya! Film nerd here looking for a cool, cute, adventurous and artistically-inclined movie enthusiast to join me for some movie dates in the city!
Independent theaters like the New York Film Forum, Film at Lincoln Center, IFC Theater and Quad Cinema are showing interesting films I’d like to see pretty much every single day, but traveling into the city to go to the movies alone is kind of a drag - so I thought I’d try and find a buddy! If you like film, writing or art and enjoy discussing & debating those topics with people, chances are we’ll enjoy hanging out. Having nerdy interests on the side like video games, comics or anime is also welcome!
About me: I’m 6’1”, broad-shouldered, deep-voiced, hairy all over, kinda shy, a bit on the thicker side but not to an awful degree (recently started working out). Messy, vaguely curly brown hair and dark nerd glasses. I’m open to these dates being as platonic or, uh, non-platonic as we end up feeling comfortable with. I have broad, negotiable physical preferences for prospective partners (around my age or younger, not severely oveunderweight, etc.) but what I’m far more interested in is mental connection. So hit me up!

2023.04.01 13:14 RyanzRetroReviewz The Sea Hawk - 1940 Film Review - RyanzRetroReviewz


The Sea Hawk is a 1940 black-and-white swashbuckling/adventure movie directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Errol Flynn, Brenda Marshall, Claude Rains and Flora Robson. Plans for the movie were announced by Warner Brother's Studios immediately following the success of Captain Blood (1935), again teaming up Flynn and Curtiz for the now 10th time, but not before filming and releasing The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) in between. As with "Blood", the screenplay is based off the novel of the same name by Rafael Sabitini, with changes being made to both the overall story, as well as Flynn's character in general, using the exploits of the historic Sir Francis Drake as inspiration, more than that of the original source material. The story takes us back into the late 17th century, focusing on an impending war between the Great Spanish Empire and the lesser Kingdom of England. Having recently conquered the treasure laden South and Central American Empires, Phillip the 2nd of Spain now wishes to subdue the whole of Northwest Europe, starting with England, but must wait some Months before his naval Armada can be built. Elizabeth the 1st of England (elegantly played by Flora Robson), decides to secretly commission a group of English privateers known as the "Sea Hawks", lead by Sir Roger Thorpe (Flynn), to attack and plunder the Spanish treasure galleons returning from America, denying Phillip the funds necessary to build his Armada. The side plots focus on Flynn falling in love with the daughter of the Spanish Ambassador to England (played by Brenda Marshall and Claude Raines respectively), as well as a discontent member of court, Lord Wolfingham (a classic Donald Crisp role), planning with the Spanish Ambassador behind the Queen's back to undermine the Sea Hawks. It's also worth mentioning the brilliant character work by Alan Hale, Una O'Connor, and others, putting the cherry on top of the acting department. With the movie being made during WWII, the entire theme of the story is evidently Pro British propaganda, showing England and the rest of the world suffering under the brutal might of Spain, in place of Nazi-Germany. The movie is full of flamboyant and realistic period drama costuming (re-used from "The Private Lives of Elizabeth of Essex"), as well as being packed with epic scale practical effects, featuring two full size sailing ships going to bat with each other on multiple occasions (guns, cannons, swords, bodies flying into the water, the works), all filmed on the old Warner Bros. Maritime Stage. Also noteworthy in this movie is Erich Wolfgang Korngold's very emotionally driven inspiring theme, which was considered a true high point in his career and served as one of the main inspirations for the all time great composer John Williams. With all of this brilliantly wrapped up together by the great Michael Curtiz, "The Sea Hawk" (1940) is a top line old time pirate movie, a true must watch for fans of retro cinema.
And that's all she wrote folks. Thanks for reading

2023.04.01 13:12 TopRule8217 Fixing The DCEU Project: Part 1

The Lineup:

HBO Television Series:

A detailed outline of plot-lines, changes and in-universe connections.

The Batman:

The Plot: This events of this movie would stay exactly the same.
My Major Changes: Batman is in his fourth year in my version of the film, he's not an experienced veteran like Ben Affleck's interpretation, he still has a lot to learn, but he isn't totally inexperienced like in the film we got. This would be done in a similar way to The New 52. I believe that Pattinson can play a Batman who has sidekicks before, but after Jason's death, he becomes more emo, like in the movie we got.
Batman, in my DCEU, already had adopted Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Jason Todd and Helena Bertinelli. Bruce hasn't adopted or even met Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Cassandra Cain, or Damian Wayne yet.
Dick Grayson left on extremely bad terms with Batman in a similar way to in the animated series episode "Old Wounds"
Jason Todd gets lured into a circus, similar to Titans, and is killed on live television by The Joker, similar to Earth-27.
Huntress left Bruce, due to the trauma of Jason Todd's death, since they were dating at the time, similar to Earth 27.
Barbara Gordon got shot in the spine and raped by The Joker, like in The Killing Joke storyline, it happened shortly before Jason got killed. Barbara doesn't become Oracle until a few months after the events of the first movie.
Batwoman is a cousin of Batman, and Bruce is aware of her activities.
This would be subtly mentioned in my version, and Dick leaving and Jason's death are a few additional reasons why Bruce acts like an edgelord and doesn't have that playboy persona anymore (at least until the sequels)
Batman, before the events of this film, has already fought The Joker, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Killer Moth, Deadshot, Poison Ivy and Ra's Al Ghul. There would be newspaper clippings that mention these off-screen encounters.
The Joker deleted scene is added in my version, to establish that he exists in this universe, if the post-credit scenes didn't do it already.
Metropolis and Queen Industries are mentioned during Bruce's meeting with Falcone. Setting up the larger DC Universe, in the future.
I would place emphasis that Batman is struggling to make change in Gotham on his own, without his sidekicks to assist him, he only has Alfred, Catwoman and Gordon to rely on, since Dick, Barbara, and Helena, have left on bad terms or to do their own thing in neighboring cities, and Jason is deceased (for now).
That also explains why Batman calls himself "Vengeance". He's on his own with barely anyone to help him, just like how he was when his parents died. (Aside from Alfred)
Bruce's utility belt gets blown up during the final battle. Which sets up him getting a more comic accurate one, in the future.
However, he still uses the adrenaline injection, and I'd later tie that to Bane and his venom formula, in a future movie as a prototype.

Superman: The Man Of Steel

The Plot Act-1: I’d heavily change the opening, develop Zod more, and make a cleaner Krypton that actually has crystals covering the planet, just like in the comics and in Superman (1978)
(I'd replace General Zod with Metallo as the antagonist, because Zod has already appeared in Superman ll and Smallville, by 2013, so I'd use a new villain that never appeared on the big screen in Metallo, who only appeared on Smallville with a small budget and we never fully saw his robotic form. I'd save General Zod for the third movie)
We see a small meteor found in the ocean, near Metropolis, by Lex Luthor, with a glowing green substance.
We flashback to many years ago, Kal-El is born, they name him. We cut to General Zod who is sitting in his home alone, having violent flashbacks of robotic creatures with symbols on their foreheads attacking krypton, killing people, even Zod’s family, the flashbacks are brief, but just enough to see the Kryptonian council surrender to their attacker, a dome encloses over Kandor and make it disappear, but a pod flies away as Kandor disappears.
(That will set up Supergirl in Chapter 2, and Brainiac fighting Superman eventually)
Dru-Zod is haunted and angry about this traumatic event that happened ago. Jor-El is studying problems in the planet’s core, but their computers say everything is fine. Jor-El asks Zod to come with him to check a fault line, as a scientist needs to be accompanied by a soldier when going to the outer lands, to access military equipment or whatever, just as a soldier needs authorization by a scientist to access scientific equipment.
They talk, it’s clear they’re friends, Jor-El tells Zod about his son, happy for him. Suddenly a violent earthquake erupts, causing Jor-El to quickly check his readings. They’re off the charts. Jor-El and Zod quickly rushes back to his lab to check his main computers, which are all reading things as fine, he digs deeper into the programming and finds the same symbol that was on the robotic creatures head embedded into the computers programming, corrupting it.
Jor-El is horrified, Zod is furious, yelling about how that thing destroyed their families, their brightest city, and now it’s destroyed them, Zod blames the council for bowing to the thing and proclaims them weak. Jor-El warns the council, as Zod rallies any soldiers loyal to him to save their world while they still can, he does so easily, they attack the council headquarters and take them out, Zod finds Jor-El, and asks him to help him save their world through allowing access to The Codex.
The Codex is a computer chip, essentially it’s the brain, it has info on everything, from the genetic code from which all kryptonian children are created, to the entire history of Krypton and all its knowledge, and the how to build and operate a terraforming device called the World Engine, as such a thing has been illegal for a long time due to it requiring a planet with an already habitable environment and thus life.
(Brainiac would get the information about how to build and use The World Engine in a sequel)
Jor-El refuses Zod, saying he will not allow Zod to destroy an entire race. Jor-El escapes, accesses the codex, steals it and goes to Lara, telling her they have to leave. Jor-El has set a warning for the planet to give them time to escape, but doubts they’ll be able to as a military security system destroys any ship entering or leaving krypton, but Jor-El has a plan:
A space probe, small enough to sneak past the security systems, but big enough to carry maybe one person, or one person and a baby. The probe was designed to send robotic drones to other planets and test the planet’s atmosphere and environment. He sends Lara and Kal-El to the probe, and she goes, begrudgingly, as Jor-El gives her the codex and a special command key for the probe that will guide them when they get to earth, telling her he has to distract Zod’s men to keep them from the probe.
Lara is wounded fatally, from a plasma shot by one of Brainiac's drones, but she gets into the probe with Kal-El and takes off. She hides the codex in the main engine of the probe just before this happens.
Zod captures Jor-El, and sees the probe doing that teleporting thing, he puts two and two together and takes Jor-El prisoner, gets on a large ship with his army, and shuts down the security systems, so he can track the ion trail or whatever science mumbo jumbo before it dissipates.
Jor-El, though, has thought ahead, and damaged the teleportation device thing, making it so it would trap them in the “phantom zone” between the teleportation destinations, giving the trail time to dissipate so they can’t track it.
General Zod, Faora and Nam-Ek are all caught in the vortex, and sent to The Phantom Zone, by the teleportation device.
(General Zod and Faora will return in a future sequel)
Jor-El closes his eyes as he is caught in the planet destroying explosion, as we see Krypton blown to smithereens, as a green remnant goes through a radiation storm and crashes in The Atlantic Ocean. As we cut to Earth, where the probe crashes in Kansas at night, near a farm in winter, Jonathan and Martha come out. Lara, barely alive, opens the probe, by pulling the command key out, and they find her, Jonathan tries to save her, but she dies, her last words before passing away are asking them to protect her son.
Jonathan and Martha lie to a friend of theirs in the hospital by telling them that the baby had been left on their doorstep and asking him to write down that Martha had given birth to the baby over the winter, during a recent snowstorm.
Meanwhile, Clark Kent hitchhikes across Metropolis and starts working odd jobs, researching extraterrestrial sightings, and secretly using his powers to help people in need, which results in him having to hit the road again. Clark Kent starts developing journalistic skills as he talks to people and gathers information in his quest to figure out where he came from.
We flashback to Clark Kent's backstory, with Clark's parents trying to raise him right and help him control his powers. In the scene where Clark Kent asks his father in the original movie, which is "Should I have just let those kids on the bus die?".
Jonathan Kent tells Clark, no, and that he did the right thing, but he shouldn't expose his powers too much. During the scene, these flashbacks show that Jonathan Kent wants to keep his son Clark safe, but what kind of father would he be if he didn't encourage his son to do the right thing, even when it is hard?
Jonathan Kent is inspired by his son's selflessness and rushes in to help a lady that is about to be run over, and he succeeds, but the excitement and fear cause him to have a heart attack. Jonathan Kent gets rushed to the hospital by Martha Kent and Clark, but he dies. Years later, Martha says goodbye to Clark as he's moving to Metropolis.
Back in the present, Clark Kent goes to a bar to eat some food, but when he eats, Clark notices a drunk and rude Truck Driver harassing a female waitress.
Clark Kent hesitates a bit, but he notices no one else is stopping it, so he decides to do something about the situation. As the drunk and rude trucker is about to grab the woman inappropriately again, Clark Kent grabs his arm and he angrily tells him to leave the girl alone, which surprises the truck driver and makes him a bit scared.
However, Clark notices that his strength is hurting the man's arm, and in order to not expose his powers in front of people watching, he lets his hand go to show A bit of restraint, but Clark pushes his own to the floor, so he doesn't attack him. The truck driver gets back up from the floor and attempts to punch Clark, but Clark dodges the punch before he can be hit.
A few police officers notice the fight happen, and they decide to arrest the drunk trucker for intoxication and attempted assault against Clark Kent. Clark Kent gets thanked by the waitress for standing up for her, but Clark decides to head out to avoid any suspicions.
(The waitress will later be revealed as Lucy Lane, the younger sister of Lois Lane)
Clark decides to go downtown in Metropolis to apply for a better job. He drives there and we get shots of Metropolis. The design of Metropolis, in my rewrite, strongly resembles the version from Superman Returns.
Act 2: Later, after seeing The Daily Planet building, Clark decides to apply for a job there, and he succeeds, and this is where he first meets Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Chloe Sullivan and Perry White.
Jimmy Olsen is the new kid in The Daily Planet, fresh out of college, and he becomes fast friends with Lois and Clark.
Perry White is the very stern Editor-in-Chief of the Metropolis newspaper the Daily Planet. He is Clark's boss. (I would still cast Lawrence Fishbourne)
Chloe Sullivan is witty, feisty, and cheeky reporter of The Daily Planet. She is Lois's close friend and she vaguely was acquaintances with Clark, back in his Smallville days.
Clark and Lois hit it off, despite their bickering at first, and they even agree on a date, a few weeks later. Clark and Lois interview Lex Luthor, about LEXCORP's new achievements in cybernetics. During the interview, Lex makes some unwanted advances towards Lois, which irritates Clark but he keeps his cool and stays professional.
(That is a creepy politician metaphor, kinda like a certain president from 2016, who has sexual assault allegations from at least 5 women)
Clark decides to help people publicly as Superman, as he pulls out the old black suit that Martha had made for him. After work, Clark hears an explosion, he walks as Clark rips his shirt to reveal his (Silver) Superman symbol.
After that, then John Willlams score starts as we see a montage of Clark helping people from life threatening situations and stopping robberies, as the reports of a guy flying in a gray cape stopping crime is flooding in. However, it's not entirely confirmed by the public, so some cynical people in Metropolis say it was an urban legend of some "Superman".
It's during one of these robbery encounters that Clark fought a former marine, John Corben, though his own machine gun's bullets bounced off Superman, and they ricocheted back at Corben and he's paralyzed and his body was mutilated beyond repair. A regretful Superman jumps him to a hospital, near The LEXCORP Building, (We'll get back to that later)
Later, Lois is involved in a helicopter mishap. Clark publicly uses his powers for the first time to jump high enough to catch Lois Lane falling off the damaged helicopter, as it explodes, near 'The LEXCORP tower, astonishing the crowd gathered below. Very similar to the 1978 film.
Superman is now publicly recognized, but not everyone is welcoming of this, some seeing him as dangerous for having this much power. Lex Luthor was quick to become an enemy of Superman when he accused the hero of being an alien threat to humanity. Lex also did research on the meteor that crashed, and he found out that it is deadly to Superman, Lex dubbed the green radioactive substance, "Kryptonite".
The Daily Planet was the only newspaper in existence to portray him in a positive light, with his first recorded photograph being taken by Jimmy Olsen.
Lex, along with Mercy Graves, plans to kill Superman, before he can interfere with LEXCORP and he sees Superman as a threat, due to his alien origin. It's basically Batman's motive for being against Superman in Batman Vs Superman, but pasted onto Lex Luthor, instead. Eve Teschmacher doesn't see what is wrong with Superman. She's very reminiscent of her counterpart in the 1978 film. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor goes to pay a visit to John Corben, in the hospital, after he heard the new story of his encounter with Superman.
John, by this point, is a man that was screwed over by Superman (inadvertently) and Lex made a deal with Corben that if he killed Superman, he'd get millions after the U.S. Government screwed him out of getting benefits after years of being in the marines. Feeling that he had nothing to lose, Corben agreed to the cybernetic enhancements.
LEXCORP scientists transfer his mind into an indestructible android body made of titanium alloys and powered by a Kryptonite heart. Upon the completion, Corben's android body was covered with a layer of artificial skin, which, aside from a rectangular seam which could expose his Kryptonite heart, allowed him to pass himself off as his original body.
Lex Luthor orders Metallo to cause destruction and collateral damage around Metropolis, to catch the attention of Superman. Reluctantly, Metallo rips off his human skin, revealing his robotic body from underneath.
Act-3: We see Metallo decimate Metropolis with his kryptonite powered weapons. The Military is sent in to neutralize Metallo. However, none of the machine gun rounds from the soldiers can pierce Corben's android body. Meanwhile, Clark hears a psychic call and he discovers a glowing blue crystal from the remains of his spacecraft that he keeps around. It compels Superman to fly to the Arctic where he uses the blue crystal to find The Fortress of Solitude, which strongly resembles the architecture and design of Krypton.
Inside, a hologram of Jor-El explains Clark's true origins, and after educating him on his reason for being sent to Earth and his powers, and he says to Clark,
"The people of Earth are different from us, it's true, but ultimately, I believe that is a good thing. They won't necessarily make the same mistakes we did, but if you guide them, Kal, if you give them hope. That's what this symbol means. The symbol of the House of El means "Hope". Embodied within that hope is the fundamental belief in the potential of every person to be a force for good. That's what you can bring them. They will race behind you. They will stumble. They will fall. But in time, they will join you in the Sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders."
Clark leaves the Fortress wearing a blue and red suit with a red cape and the House of El family crest emblazoned on his chest. It's basically the classic Superman outfit.
After seeing news coverage of Metropolis getting decimated, Clark decides to learn how to fly to save everyone, and it's the same exact scene from Man Of Steel, except when Clark does fly, The John Williams Superman Theme plays in the background instead. When Superman arrives in Metropolis, he evacuates civilians out of the city. (Because that's what Superman is supposed to be written as)
Meanwhile, Lois is about to get shot and killed by Metallo's plasma cannon, especially since she was too close to Lex's operations, as a reporter, but Superman swoops in and punches Metallo, sending the cyborg crashing into a Wayne Enterprises Building. (That's hinting at a Batman crossover)
After Superman saves her life, Lois grabs a nearby AK 47, on the pavement and evacuates Jimmy, Chloe, and Perry out of the city to be safe from all the chaos and collateral damage that Metallo is causing. Superman and Metallo have a brawl across Metropolis.
Metallo activates his kryptonite blaster and Superman is shot in the chest with it, weakening him and sending Clark crashing into a car, destroying it on impact.
Metallo absolutely bodies Clark in his weakened state. Corben is a master martial artist during his time with The Marines, and Superman is reliant on his abilities. Metallo beats down on Superman.
Metallo fires a missile at Superman, but using his reaction time, Clark turns the missile right back at Metallo, and the explosion blows a huge chunk in the torso of Metallo's cybernetic body.
Superman flies away from Metallo, momentarily for extra sunlight, to nullify the effects of the kryptonite, but Metallo has thrusters that allow him to fly at supersonic speeds.
The two engage in an aerial fight, but Superman grabs Metallo by his robotic skull and throws him into The LEXCORP Tower, tearing a hole through the skyscraper.
Superman and Metallo continue fighting in the LEXCORP Tower. When they are in close quarters, Superman freezes one of Metallo's arms and blows it up with his heat vision, knocking Metallo backwards, losing his right arm in the process.
When Metallo rushes towards Superman, Clark, in slow motion, sees an exposed chunk of wiring on the side of Metallo's torso, fires his heat vision and Metallo explodes and he is left a fiery mess, and Metallo shuts down.
Lois does find and confront Lex, thanks to Eve Teschmacher, the intern, next to Lex screams "She's got a gun!!" as Lois shoots Lex in the left arm.
When Superman arrives, Lex explains that they cannot arrest him, since he already covered the Metallo incident up, so Superman leaves with Lois, and flies away, vowing to put Luthor away in prison, one day.
Superman reveals his identity to Lois, and they still stay together as the two kiss, as the camera pans out to see the ravaged Metropolis. News Coverage, the papers and social media posts around the globe publish that Superman saves Metropolis from Metallo's terrorist attack and is a beacon of hope, just when it looked like Metropolis was about to be wiped off the map. Meanwhile, Metallo is sent back to LEXCORP and Lex repairs Corben and keeps him in a room, for something darker and nefarious…
(That is set up for The Legion Of Doom for a future Justice League sequel, especially since Steppenwolf is the villain for my rewrite of the first Justice League film)
The film ends with Superman and Lois being on their date that they promised each other, and after the date is over, Clark hears a crime, Lois kisses him and Clark suits up as Superman and flies off, with the John Willlams theme playing in the background, as the credits roll.
Post Credit Scenes: In the Batcave, Batman is watching a live video of Superman's fight with Metallo, setting up their meeting in World's Finest.
A giant skull-ship with tentacles orbits Saturn, and inside, the computer coldly states, "Kryptonian detected" and a green humanoid alien in silver armor, with his eyes glowing pink, states "Target Acquired" and smiles sinisterly.
This will set up Brainiac as a villain for a future Superman sequel, right after The Justice League.

The Batman 2: Heart Of Ice:

The Plot Act 1: The Batman 2 takes place during Christmas, and a year after the first movie. The opening scene is a flashback montage of Victor Fries and Nora falling in love and would end with the doctor saying she has cancer.
After this revelation, Victor developed a special cryogenic cell and planned to cryogenically hold Nora in there, to keep her alive, until a cure was found. However, Fries had been misappropriating GothCorp's money, which left the company in debt and the experiment unauthorized.
Fries was interrupted by GothCorp's CEO Ferris Boyle and a fight ensued and Fries grabbed a handgun, pointing it at Boyle and the security guards. Fries was then calmly ordered by Boyle to drop the gun, reasoning that it was not his nature to resort to violence and that a possibility may have existed to legitimately bankroll Nora's experiment.
Boyle's smooth talk got to Victor as he relaxed and let down his guard, allowing the deceitful CEO to kick the scientist into a lab table full of beakers which exploded. The explosion smashed him into his cryogenic freezing tanks and the accident soaked his entire body with the freezing solution and rendered him unable to survive outside of a sub-zero environment.
In the present day, Bruce Wayne has been trying to help and go out in public more and has his playboy personality, to help Gotham City recover from the flood that The Riddler caused in the previous movie. Ferris Boyle would be one of the head leaders for Gotham's rebuilding, even after the flood being frozen solid. However, it's another lie and secretly, Boyle is secretly taking money supposed to rebuild Gotham into his own bank account.
We have an opening action sequence of Batman fighting Killer-Croc, in the flooded waters of Gotham City, in the sewers. It's very similar to Bruce's fight with Killer Croc in Arkham Origins video game, where Batman uses his electrical gauntlets to wail on Croc, knocking him out and Bruce leaves Killer Croc for the cops.
After that, we see Batman as Bruce Wayne attending a charity event for Gotham's reconstruction, after the flood. It's led by Ferris Boyle. However, the door is busted down, thugs begin aiming their guns and an armored figure with glowing red eyes slowly walks towards Boyle, as Mister Freeze is introduced and he attacks The Charity Event, and tries to get the diamonds in the area and kidnap Boyle. He begins freezing people with his Freeze-Gun.
Taking advantage of the chaos, Bruce disappears into the panicked crowd and suits up as Batman, and he jumps out and kicks Mister Freeze, directly in his glass dome, cracking it. Due to his limited mobility in his armor, Freeze struggles against Batman, as Bruce continues landing several blows on him. However, Freeze gets Batman off of him and freezes Batman's feet to the floor with his Freeze-Rifle.
Mister Freeze steals the diamond and kidnaps Boyle. Victor takes Boyle to his hideout where he freezes his body. Boyle had caused his body to turn a bluish blue and for him to feel like he's constantly burning and his only comfort is his suit which cools him down. We now cut to Gordon and Batman investigating the crime scene.
Mister Freeze is using the diamonds to power his armor to find a cure for Nora who is permanently frozen. We have a similar scene to the animated series to show Freeze's lack of empathy and cold demeanor towards his goons.
Freeze has also been targeting executives of Ferris Boyle. Which leads to an action sequence in the frozen waters in Gotham City, where Freeze is surrounded by the executives, who all carry assault rifles. Mister Freeze kills them all by smashing the ice and freezing them underneath the frozen water, causing them to drown.
Finally, Batman figures out who Victor Fries is, through some research on The Batcomputer and which bank he's gonna rob next and chases after him with The Batmobile. However, Mister Freeze freezes the vehicle causing Batman to lose him.
Act-2: After his loss to Mister Freeze, Batman goes to The Iceberg Lounge to get some answers and information on Freeze but instead of getting met by The Penguin, it's two super strong thugs who are Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
Batman fights the duo, but he gets overpowered and just when Batman is cornered and about to be beaten to death, Catwoman jumps behind Tweedledum and kicks him in the head and says playfully to Batman,
"I figured you'd be here".
Together, Bruce and Selena knock out both Tweedledee and Tweedledum in a bloody fist fight. After dealing with those two, Bruce and Selina get to Penguin, who does actually have information this time as he is doing a weapons deal with Freeze where he'll trade for this new freeze tech.
Batman attacks The Freeze Thugs, alongside Catwoman. These thugs have less advanced versions of Freeze's gun and interrogate one and figuring out Freeze's hideout and his motivation for his crimes. After they are subdued, Batman and Catwoman go to Mister Freeze's hideout taking out his goons stealthily and finding Freeze looking at his wife in the tube.
Batman sympathizes with Freeze and tries to convince him that he'll help Freeze with his wife and that he doesn't need to steal diamonds and shatter Boyle, who has been frozen all this time. Freeze doesn't care and doesn't trust Batman because Boyle lied to him in a similar way. They battle for a while, with Freeze having an upgraded version of his armor for better mobility.
Mister Freeze catches one of Batman's kicks and throws him aside into one of his ice structures, shattering it to pieces.
As Batman is in a fist fight with Freeze, Bruce begins to freeze up, because his main suit is not built for this low temperature environment, as Mister Freeze pulverizes Batman with a fury of punches, which breaks his cowl.
Catwoman tries to slice into Freeze's armor with her claws, but Freeze shoots her in the neck, causing Selena to suffocate.
(As for the effects of The Freeze-Rifle, The freezing itself doesn't actually kill you but it's the hypothermia that ensues that does it)
Batman breaks the ice and stealthily retreats with a wounded and suffocating Catwoman, back to The Batcave.
Act-3: After this, Batman quickly gets out of his armor and shatters the ice around Selina's neck. During Catwoman's recovery, Bruce reveals his identity to her and the two make out and get into an official relationship. Bruce and Selina come up with a plan to stop Freeze and find some way to cure his wife. His original suit is too damaged and they don't have time to repair it, as Freeze plans to storm GothCorp and steal all their latest technologies to help Nora.
Lucius Fox and his son, Luke, create Batman's new extreme environment suit created to stop Freeze specifically. The Extreme Environment Suit is armed with Thermo Charged Batarangs. Batman with his new XE suit will find Freeze and they battle.
All of Freeze's blasts from his Freeze-Rifle do nothing as they melt quickly on Batman's XE suit.
Batman bombards Mister Freeze with explosives and blasts from his Thermo Charged Batarangs, which ends up weakening Mister Freeze.
Batman punches Freeze across the room.
Catwoman fights off Freeze's thugs. It's a similar action sequence to Black Widow's hallway fight with Whiplash's thugs in Iron Man 2.
Batman reasons with Mister Freeze, to turn himself in for the sake of his wife, Nora, and Victor agrees and surrenders to The GCPD. Mister Freeze is put away in Arkham Asylum, in an extremely cold cell. The movie ends with Wayne Enterprises announcing that they are working on a cure for cancer, and they are almost there, as Victor cries with happiness, as the film ends on a hopeful note.
Post Credit Scenes: We see a dark haired woman, looking at photos of Batman and Superman's past sightings and footage of their battles with past supervillains, including Batman's final battle with Mister Freeze.
She says "The Silver Age of Heroes is happening, huh." As we zoom in on her amazonian armor, tiara, and lasso, hung up in her penthouse. As we hear the Hanns Zimmer Wonder Woman Theme quietly plays in the background, as it cuts to black…
(Yep, it's a small glimpse at Wonder Woman)
Tweedledee and Tweedledum are in the streets of Gotham, and they are suddenly hypnotized by a mysterious man. That will set up Mad Hatter for a future Batman film.

2023.04.01 13:07 RyanzRetroReviewz The Private Lives of Elizabeth & Essex - 1939 Film Review - RyanzRetroReviewz

The Private lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939)

The private lives of Elizabeth and Essex is a 1939 historical romance drama movie starring Erol Flynn (still riding high on his success from his most memorable of roles in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" just a few years earlier), Bette Davis (who wasn't all that fond of sharing top billing with Flynn, a glorified stuntman in her eyes), and Olivia de Havelland (fresh from the set of her most memorable work in "Gone with the Wind", and making this her fifth out of nine movies sharing co-starring credits with Flynn). Directed by master movie maker Micheal Curtiz (already known for his works on "Captain Blood" and "Angels with Dirty Faces", and later to be known for his larger than life movies such as "Casablanca" and "White Christmas"), stretching his legs with the new technicolor process of filming, and reuniting him yet again with his usual cast of star studded actors\actresses, to whom he had each given their big breaks on screen.
We start this movie off on a large and lavish note, with trumpets and fanfare welcoming home Robert Devereux the Earl of Essex (Flynn) from his victories at war with Spain. But the celebritory mood is cut short when Queen Elizabeth I (Davis), scorns and berates the Earl of Essex for his wreckless sinking of a Spanish treasure galleon, other than the capture of it. Essex then resigns himself from the Queen's service and retires back to his lands. Over the next chunk of the movie, we're taken into life at Elizabeth's court, and quickly come to learn that the Earl of Essex and the Queen are both secretly in love with each other, though none can come to submit themselves to the other publicly. We're introduced to the Lords of Elizabeth's privy council; Lord Raleigh (Vincent Price), Lord Burghley (Henry Stephenson), Sir Robert Cecil (Henry Daniell) and Sir Francis Bacon (Donald Crisp), who all plot and vie to replace Essex as favorite to the Queen. We also come to meet one of the Queen's ladies in waiting, Lady Penelope Gray (de Havilland), who also has a deep secret love for Essex, and will do anything to sour the relationship between the two. A high point of these scenes has Lady Penelope signing a ballad of an old maiden wishing she was still young and fair, which sends the Queen into an extreme fit of rage, breaking all the mirrors in her chamber (a truly great scene on Bette Davis' part).
A messenger soon comes stumbling in from Ireland telling the Queen of their losses to the native forces. This causes Elizabeth to send out a new force to Ireland, as well as giving her a reason to call in Essex and make him master of the city's defences, should they face and invasion. But the Lord's of the privy council all too easily goad the Earl of Essex into volunteering to lead the attack force to Ireland himself, with the Queen's own objection's meaning naught to him.
This then leads us to the bog land battlegrounds of the good old "Emerald Isle" (Ireland for those of you who don't know), smack dab in the middle of the "Nine Years War" (1593-1603), where Essex's men have now been suffering heavy losses due to lack of reinforcements and supplies from the Crown, and only scant letters of reply from the Queen; none of them directly addressing the situation at hand. Essex is furious.
Back in England, Elizabeth is also furious, apparently having being given little to no word from Essex on the situation in Ireland. We now learn that her conniving Lord's and jealous Lady in waiting have all been aiding each other in the omission of certain letters to and from the Queen, in order to ruin the Earl of Essex in her eyes.
Meanwhile in Ireland, Essex finally surrenders to the leader of the rebel Irish army, Hugh O'Neill (Alan Hale, Sr.), when the last of their supply camp is burned out. This, on top of a now angry letter from Elizabeth demanding that he "surrender" himself to the court for treason, sends the Earl into a state of rage. He soon leads his army back to England and storms the court of the Queen, but Elizabeth easily tricks him into standing down his army then having has him arrested and sent to the Tower of London, to Essex's shock and dismay. Lady Pennelope then tearfully admits her crimes to her Queen in hopes of saving the Earl of Essex's life, though this is to no avail.
The final scene of the movie has the two lovers face to face one last time, with Elizabeth begging Essex yet again for his public submission, to which he boldly denies, then marches head held high straight to the executioners block, bringing to us one final look at Queen Elizabeth I, as we pan out and bring up the end credits to this tale (a final scene in which we actually see Flynn on the chopping block was apparently cut after early test previews).
To sum it all up in so many words, "The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex" is a fantastically crafted piece of retro cinema, packed full of great quality acting from both our leads and supporting cast, amazingly epic scale sets and costuming effects, elevated by the grand quality symphony score laid down by Eric Wolfgang Korngold, and shot beautifully by Cinematograher Sol Polito, with this being one of the earliest full length live actions movies ever released in color on the big screen. All this is rounded together by director Michael Curtiz, further cementing and solidifying his name in the annals of Hollywood forevermore, hopefully.
And that's all she wrote folks.
Thanks for reading.

2023.04.01 13:04 thesillystudent Movies similar to get out, us, nope in vibe, thrill, suspense

I really liked all the three movies - us, get out and nope from Jordan peele. Are there more movies with such thrill, suspense. I want the terror to be localised and not something which is destroying or ending the world. Suspense which makes you curious, slowly builds up and then bam !!

2023.04.01 13:04 coquelicot-brise Trying to remember an old horror film - menagerie of animals, a weird face pressed against the window, very frightening for its time.

A few memories. It was technicoloured and there was an instance of everyone talking in a old victorian sitting room when the leading actresses notices a face pressed in the window.
There was a doctor or scientist figure experimenting on the grounds with something, something that I remember to be green. And a menagerie of distortive animal figures. I just remember the weird animal noises, I think they were presented in the film as either from outer space or due to the doctor's experimentations.
What I remember about the face thing was that the face was presented like pulp in the one part where the leading actor fights the figure, and I remember it was strange that that was not considered more obscene for its time, a pulpy non- face. I think the starring actress was blonde.
It was one of my favourite movies when I was really young in late 90s, early 2000s, and used to air on TCM around that time. The fact I found it so frightening may just be because I was very young but the film still keeps re-occuring in dreams sometimes, so I would like to find it again.\
edit- also, my title should be different as I did not mean "for its time" as in films from the 1940s, 1950s were not incredibly potent in the horror genre. More that I was suprised at the reveal of its face. But thank you!
Thank you.

2023.04.01 13:00 Mundane-Watch-9987 Gay Awakenings

I don't exactly see one incident as my awakening. But the first time I actually even considered liking Dick, was in class 9, when I accidently saw a classmate's pink limp Dick in a washroom stall. A more stronger confirmation of my liking for Dicks was when I actually started to fantasize giving head to a boy in my class 11. But it was never romantic, so I didn't think of myself as gay. So, it was like, I was romantically interested in girls but sexually in boys. Then came Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan (SMZS). This movie was the first time that I actually saw romance between two Indian men. And that made me realise my real feelings. There were no hot scenes (except the fleeing kissing scene in train) , but still the chemistry turned me on like no other straight couple romance or bold scene did. Since then I watched Heartstopper, Young Royals, smile, together series, some more Korean BL dramas whose name I don't remember. And each of them made me feel so alone. But atleast now I know how I feel and what I want, unlike 2 years back when I wanted to just Suck Dick and marry a girl?
Tell me ur story.

2023.04.01 12:59 FelicitySmoak_ On This Day In Michael Jackson HIStory - April 1st

Disclaimer: Some of these have unknown April dates. They are identified with a '*'
1968 - The J5 perform at a campaign rally for Richard Hatcher in Gary with Bobby Taylor and Diana Ross & The Supremes among others. Hatcher was the first African-American mayor of Gary, Indiana for 20 years, from 1968 to 1988. At the time of his first election on November 7, 1967, he and Carl Stokes were the first African-Americans to be elected mayors of a U.S. city with more than 100,000 people*
1970 - The J5 rehearse for their first concert tour, which would start on May 2nd*
1971 - The Jackson 5 play at the Mid-South Auditorium, Memphis, Tennessee
1972 - J5's cover of Bobby Day's “Little Bitty Pretty One” is released by Motown. It is also the first song where you can clearly hear Marlon's voice. It will reach #13 on the Hot 100*
1981- Michael does backing vocals on Carole Bayer Sager’s song “Just Friends”. Michael had previously recorded Sager's "It's the Falling in Love" for Off the Wall. He was visiting Carole in the studio when she invited him to join the session. He came up with such a special part on the Bacharach/Sager composition "Just Friends" that they happily offered him a co-production credit*
1985 - Michael and seven members of USA For Africa are on the cover of Life Magazine
1987 - Michael withdraws from The Jeovah’s Witness, a step that normally means he must be shunned by family members and friends who remain in the religious sect.
A representative of the Woodland Hills congregation where Jackson belonged said that the entertainer “disassociated” himself from the congregation and “no longer wants to be known as a Jehovah’s Witness.”
The official would not state what the implications of “disassociation” are, but when asked if they are serious, he responded, “Correct.”
Though Jackson’s anti-drug stance in public appearances was in keeping with the Witnesses’ clean-living codes, the entertainer’s Grammy-winning album Thriller produced tensions with the sect leaders in 1983 because of allegations the record and short film encouraged occult beliefs*
1988 - Michael plays the last of three nights at the Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut
The story of Anne Miner: Anne is a great-grandmother who never attended a rock concert and prefers Big Band-era music. She says she is 'excited' about going to see Michael Jackson with tickets she won from a radio station but plans on taking cotton with her for her ears
'I'm excited. It's a chance of a lifetime experience,' said Anne Miner, 70. 'How many times are you going to see Michael Jackson in concert?'
The Greenfield woman, who admitted her favorite group was the Glenn Miller Band, big in the 1940s, won the tickets in a Michael Jackson Trivia Contest sponsored by WHAI radio and the Pepsi Co.
A chauffeur-driven white stretch limousine complete with champagne were to pick up Miner and a guest at her home and drive them to Hartford Civic Center in Connecticut and back.
She even considered wearing her old black-leather coat to the concert. She intends to go with her 20-year-old nephew, Michael J. Smith.
Smith said he prefers hard-rock bands like Bon Jovi over Jackson, but still expected to enjoy the concert. 'I'm just glad (Jackson) doesn't wear that white glove anymore.'
The two were given floor seats worth $22.50 each to the concert, which sold out just hours after tickets went on sale.
To earn the tickets, Miner answered three questions:
Miner said she determined Jackson's record label was Epic by going to a record store and that she learned his hometown was Gary, Indiana at the Greenfield Public Library. She admitted she guessed that Diana Ross was the celebrity who discovered him
'I'm always winning something,' said Miner, a retired waitress of 41 years. She said she's a compulsive contest player who occasionally gambles on the Massachusetts State Lottery and always buys raffle tickets.
Miner said she has seen Jackson 'shaking around' on television and thinks he is a lot like Elvis Presley, but adds he 'looks like a girl.'
1989 -Michael is on the cover of Ebony magazine.
1989 - Filming of "Liberian girl" short film takes place over 2 days. Veteran video director, Jim Yukich, was brought in to help craft a memorable clip.
“CBS Epic called and Michael Jackson wants to do a video for this song ‘Liberian Girl’ and I hadn’t heard this song yet,” said Yukich. “I’m thinking like ‘Off the Wall’ or ‘Rock with You’ or just I figure it will be one of those classic Michael Jackson killer songs, right? And ‘Liberian Girl’ is not a killer song. It’s funny — what do you do? So again, we’re throwing the kitchen sink at it, and so I pitched the idea to Michael that we would have him shoot the video while all these are people waiting to begin the video, and they don’t realize it until the end is that he’s directing.”
“He loved the idea. We started calling people, and we just called in favors from friends. I had just done a television special with Richard Dreyfuss, and Richard said he’d love to be in it. He said, ‘Can I call up Steven?’ and I said, ‘Steven who?’ and he said ‘Steve Spielberg and Amy Irving, and I said, “Yeah!” So he called Spielberg and Amy, and then you start calling people saying you have these people, and I’d start naming names and it was easy. It was very easy to get people because as soon as you get a couple of big names, everybody wants to be in it.”
The shooting day basically consisted of Yukich and his crew filming all the celebrities on a soundstage as they wait for Michael to show up. The final list of guest stars served as, in retrospect, a truly strange snapshot of that year in showbusiness.Comedy writers were given the task of writing some interesting things for the cast to say on camera while they waited.
“So we just had two days, and we had the live audio with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John doing the scene when they sang together, and they hadn’t sang together onscreen since ‘Grease’, so it was something to do that, and we just shot this grand stuff of people talking, and the outtakes are incredible because it’s just people talking. The song is not even playing! It’s just great getting all these stars in a room and you’re just filming and they’re saying, ‘What are you supposed to do?’ and we’d say, ‘We’ll get back to you,’ and you’d just mike everybody and shoot stuff.”
Yukich said that in a room filled with stars, Steven Spielberg’s uneasiness on the other side of the camera was the biggest surprise. Yukich used a push-pull camera shot on Spielberg, who was the director that made that camera shot popular, hence its industry nickname – 'The Jaws Shot'
“He was nervous. We did that push-pull move for that shot, and he was more nervous than I was, you know, being on camera. He wanted to try to do this favor for Michael because he wanted Michael for a movie.” Yukich also said that working with Michael was an amazing experience, but required some on-set preparation.
“Incredible,” he said. “I mean, at first, it was funny because he sent his handlers in first, and they check, and they said he is coming in 10 minutes. They go in all the different rooms to make sure that no bombs were there and there were no fans hanging out, and they kicked people out, and it was almost like going through airport security or something. They basically kicked people out there who weren’t supposed to be there, and they bring in a microwave oven with bananas for Bubbles the monkey and Max which was the baby monkey. It was like a real rigmarole, and then when he showed up, you know, he was unbelievably nice. Such a pleasant person and a nice guy.”
Jackson also had only one request involving the removal of a person from the final cut.“He called me a couple of times after he saw the edit. He would make us do some things, like he took out David Spade. David Spade was in the original cut. He called me up and he said, ‘Jim, this is Michael,’ and you think somebody was fooling with you, basically. You would never know if it was really him until he started talking about specifics and you could say, okay, that is Michael. So he called us up and he on a walkie-talkie phone or something, or he’s up in Santa Barbara, and says, ‘You know, in 3 minutes and 20 seconds, there’s a guy blonde here. Who is that guy?’ I said his name is David Spade. ‘I don’t know who he is, take him out.’ So Spade was out, and I’m sure Spade was, like, pissed!” (Spade had not yet joined SNL)
Yukich is still aggravated that the song, and hence the video, was never released in America.
When Jackson died suddenly, Yukich immediately thought back to the video and a conversation the two had.
“To this day, I’ve been – I guess not so much anymore, because years have gone by — but I was convinced when he died that he didn’t die. We made that video, and he said to me, ‘I would love to be hiding and see what people say about me, you know?’ I mean, having shot all that footage and then he died? It was just kind of weird.”
The video is dedicated to Liz Taylor, who is in fact not a Liberian girl *
1996 - Michael starts filming the “Ghost” short film in Van Nuys studios in California. During breaks, he visits his family at Hayvenhurst disguised as the “Mayor”*
2002 - Michael is about to start shooting the “Unbreakable” short film when Sony announces that they won’t release the single. The promotion of the Invincible album is over with only 2 singles!!! *
2002 -Michael’s former business manager Myung-Ho Lee files a $13 million lawsuit claiming that on September 14, 2001 Michael met him in Los Angeles and signed an agreement to pay him fees but he never got them. Michael’s lawyer Zia Moddaber answsers that his client never signed anything and was not even in Los Angeles on that date…
In his suit, Lee claimed that Jackson hired him in the late 1990s to put the musician’s finances in order, only to turn a deaf ear when it came to taking Lee’s advice by refusing to curb spending. Lee then claimed Jackson never paid him, instead relying on “charlatans” and “hucksters” for advice.
In his court papers, Lee called Jackson a “ticking financial time bomb waiting to explode” who owed banks hundreds of millions of dollars in loans.
Michael would countersue claiming Lee and Union Finance swindled millions from him and destroyed financial records to cover up their misdeeds.
2003 - Michael and Chris Tucker visit lawyer Willie Gary in Stuart, Florida.
2003 - Vanity Fair (#tabloidtrash) reported that Michael Jackson had attended a voodoo ritual in 2000 where a witch doctor promised that Steven Spielberg and 24 other people would die. The people noted were on Jackson's list of enemies. Jackson also wired $150,000 to a voodoo chief named Baba who sacrificed 42 cows for the ceremony. The article also reported that Jackson wore a prosthesis that serves as the tip of his nose
2004 - Michael attended the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington DC to support The African Ambassadors' Spouses Association (A.A.S.A.). He was accompanied by the ambassador of Niger's wife, Haoua Piatta, and Mazie Green Holland. He watched a children's group dance before being awarded the Golden Elephant award for his worldwide humanitarian efforts, particularly the fight against AIDS in Africa.
2005 - Trial Day 24
Michael goes to court with Katherine & Joe. Testimonies of Jeff Klapackis, Jack Green, Larry Feldman & Jesus Salas.
Larry Feldman, the attorney who first interviewed Michael Jackson's accuser testified that he was never asked to file a lawsuit against the singer.
However, he did acknowledge under cross examination, that the boy and his younger brother could file civil lawsuits until they turn 20 years old, the accuser being 15 years old now.
The prosecution had called Feldman to explain how the alleged molestation came to the attention of the authorities, but the defense used his appearance to try to show its belief, that the accuser and his family were out to get money from Jackson.
Jackson's defense lawyer, Thomas Mesereau grilled Feldman about the the impact of a criminal conviction, whether or not it would make a financial judgment easier.
"If Mr. Jackson was convicted of felony child molestation in this case, (the boy or his brother) could use that case to win a civil case alleging similar of same facts against Mr. Jackson, is that correct?" asked Mesereau.
"That is correct" said Feldman.
The two lawyers sparred over the exact requirements of a civil suit, and Feldman denied accusations of encouraging the criminal action, in an attempt to avoid incurring costs involved in preparing a civil lawsuit.
However, Feldman insisted that there would still be litigation expenses.
DA Tom Sneddon asked Feldman whether he was planning a lawsuit at the time, that he referred the accusing family to Santa Barbara prosecutors, to which Feldman replied "There was no lawsuit and there were no plans to file a lawsuit. It was up to you to investigate"
Feldman was permitted to tell jurors of a previous accusation against Jackson in 1993, where Feldman represented another boy, who won a monetary settlement. Jurors were not told how much the boy was paid, but Feldman said there were no trouble collecting it. An amount which has been reported to be millions of dollars.
Sneddon projected a photograph of the boy from the previous allegations on a courtroom screen, and asked Feldman to identify him.
"He was much better looking at that age. He was adorable," Feldman said, a remark which the judge ordered stricken from the record.
The picture showed a boy who many believe bears a striking resemblance to the current accuser.
Feldman said that while he met with the current accuser's mother many times after he ceased to represent her officially, he has "never been asked to file any lawsuit against Michael Jackson"
When Feldman walked outside the courthouse in an afternoon break in testimony, fans yelled "liar", "tell the truth" and "you're making money off the backs of these people"
Feldman said, he was first contacted by the family because of a dispute over the boy's appearance in the documentary, Living With Michael Jackson where he appeared holding hands with Jackson. Feldman then referred the family to psychologist Stan J. Katz "to make out some heads and tails of what was being told to me by the family"
Katz reported suspicions of molestation to authorities after interviewing the family.
Also on the stand Friday, was an an investigator who testified that linens seized by police from Michael's bed, had failed to yield any DNA linked to the teenage accuser or his brother.
In other testimony, Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Klapackis defends the scale of the effort, when 69 investigators served a search warrant at Neverland on Nov. 18, 2003.
The large number of investigators were needed, he said, because they had only been allowed one day to carry out the search, because the district attorney didn't want to "burden the ranch and its employees with our presence longer than that," Klapackis said. He also said that there were large buildings to search at the 2,800-acre ranch.
Klapackis also said, that they took all bedding during the search, because that is where the accuser and his brother claim to have frequently slept, and where they allege the molestation took place.
During cross-examination, Klapackis said authorities did not test bottle and glasses containing alcohol for fingerprints - found in Jackson's bedroom as well as the home's wine cellar and kitchen. Nor did investigators test furniture, boxes, mannequin toys and rails along Jackson's stairwell, or his bedroom doors for fingerprints.
When asked on redirect why, Klapackis said, "It didn't enter in the investigation at the time."
However, they did test pornographic magazines. The boy's brother testified how Jackson showed them magazines. A fingerprint analyst has testified earlier, that the prints of Jackson and his accuser were recovered from the same magazine.
Jack Green, president of a Ventura telephone systems company, testified that he had inspected Neverland's phone systems. He explained that it had a function to allow someone to listen in on other's calls, but there was nothing to prevent anyone from calling 911.
Prosecutors allege the family's calls were monitored by Jackson, whereas the defense say the family could have called for help, if they truly were captives.

2023.04.01 12:57 MuadDib2001 I have an idea for a hollow earth theory creature.

This idea is based on the hollow earth theory in Godzilla vs Kong movie (I didn’t like this movie as much as its prequel, but I still enjoyed the idea of hollow earth. I wish some aspiring artist would draw a spec evo art book about the hollow earth in the same style as the Skull island art book).
So here is my idea for a creature that lives in the hollow earth:
Deep in the hollow earth, near the core of the planet, where there is no light and the pressure is so high that magma turn solid, there are creatures who use the heat of earth core as an energy source. Their metabolism is based on atomic reactions that happen inside their body thanks to the heat that is provided by earths core.
These organisms are very distant from all the branches of life that has ever been discovered. Ancient cultures have warned people about the coming of a demon from the “depth” who will destroy the world to punish humanity from straying away from the gods. The Bible and Quran have mentioned them too. They are also known to be responsible for earthquakes as well (later studies by scientists prove this hypothesis. In fact, this is how humans discover them!)
Our story begins with a crazy military guy (just like every Kaiju movie) who wants to travel to core of the planet to take one of these monsters out to the surface. He is an insane greedy bastard who believes these creatures will provide humans with free energy for eternity!
But a group of scientists (good guys) realize the dangers of his actions and are try to stop him.
What makes this creature different than other Kaijus is their insane size. They are at least ten times bigger than a regular Godzilla. These monsters are depicted as eldritch gods who come from bellow and their emergence marks the end of all life on earth as we know it.

2023.04.01 12:55 Dr_Jackson_SG_1 A Dream Come True

A Dream Come True
In order to give you all context for this I need to tell you guys the events as they happened. A little background first. I'm a 21 year old rookie with my local GB franchise. I've been watching GB1 and GB2 religiously since I was about 3 or 4 and it was my first real "grown up" movie. It has always been my favorite. Ray has been a comfort character for me and The Ecto-1 has been my dream car from the first moment I saw her.
I'm currently on vacation in North Carolina to celebrate my sister's and Step moms Birthdays. My step mom is a huge fan of the city of Gatlinburg. With it being just a few hours away from where we're staying we all decided to take a trip to Tennessee for a few and spend some time there. We did some pretty standard thing, ate at Bubba Gumps, checked out the Space Needle, crossed the glass bridge, went to the aquarium, etc. Then we started checking out some of the other attractions.
Next to a haunted house we found a Hollywood car museum. On the billboard at the front of the shop they showed an Ecto-1. I could hardly contain my excitement. As we walked in we saw the Adam West Batmobile, The General Lee, and Grace from Ghost Rider. As I gtt ready to turn a corner on the second floor my heart stops. I see the grill and hood of Ecto as if she was looking around the corner. I took some pictures and got my picture taken standing next to her. In all my life I never thought I would see a screen used Ecto from 1984. As we are about to leave I see that they were selling photos of the cars. I figured that they were pre-taken. When I payed, the guy behind the counter pulled out a camera and told me to follow him. I figured "cool, a professional photo of me with Ecto" but something happened that I would never have anticipated.
When we got to Ecto, the guy rolled down her window and poped open the passenger side door and gestured for me to take a seat. I was stunned. I knew I was going to at least get a picture with her. but get to sit inside? The thought had never crossed my mind. As I stepped inside I felt like a kid again. Waves of nostalgia and child memories washed over me. I was on hallowed ground. A piece of my Childhood that had always been locked away in the screen of my TV or local theater, I was sitting in. I was sitting where Bill Murry sat going to Central Park West, Sigourney Weever, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson all of them sat in the bench I was sitting on.
My dream came true that day. If any of you happen to pass through Gatlinburg sometime. Go and pay Ecto a visit. Its an experience that you will never forget.

How African Festivals are Celebrated

African festivals are known for their vibrant and colorful celebrations that frequently include traditional music, dance, food, and drink. Here are some examples of how African festivals are observed:

Makeup and Dressing

The traditional clothing and makeup worn during African festivals are one of their most distinguishing features. Festivals allow people to display their culture and heritage through their attire and appearance. In Nigeria, for example, men wear colorful agbada robes and carry staffs, while women wear elaborate gele head wraps and matching iro and buba outfits. Attendees at South Africa's Cape Town Jazz Festival frequently dress in colorful and flamboyant outfits inspired by the festival's jazz music theme.

Dance and music

Music and dance are an important part of many African festivals, and they are frequently used to express joy and celebration. Visitors to the festival can dance to traditional music or contemporary music influenced by African rhythms. For example, the Durban July festival in South Africa is known for its live music performances, which include appearances by well-known South African musicians. The Essaouira Gnawa and World Music Festival in Morocco features traditional Gnawa music and dance that is deeply rooted in West African spiritual and cultural traditions.

Food and beverages

Another important aspect of African festivals is food and drink. Festivals frequently provide an opportunity to sample traditional dishes and drinks, which may have been specially prepared for the occasion. In Ghana, for example, yams are harvested and prepared into a variety of dishes, including yam fufu and yam porridge, during the Yam Festival. Traditional Nigerian dishes such as jollof rice and suya, a spicy beef skewer, are available to attendees at the Durbar Festival.

Ceremonies and Rituals of the Past

Many African festivals include traditional rituals and ceremonies that have deep cultural significance. Blessings, prayers, or other spiritual practices may be included, as well as ceremonies to honor ancestors or pay tribute to important figures in the community. In Ethiopia, for example, a replica of the Ark of the Covenant is carried in a colorful procession, representing the biblical story of the Israelites' journey with the ark.
African festivals are celebrated in a variety of ways, with traditional dress, music, dance, food, and drink being common. These events allow people to showcase their cultural heritage, express joy and celebration, and honor their traditions and beliefs.

The Future of African Festivals

African festivals are an important part of African culture, bringing communities together to celebrate their heritage through music, dance, art, food, and traditional rituals. These festivals evolve in tandem with the world. In this blog post, we will look at the role of technology in African festivals, the effects of globalization on these festivals, and the challenges and opportunities for future generations to preserve them.

Technology's Role in African Festivals

The way African festivals are celebrated has been transformed by technology. Festivals can now reach a wider audience by promoting their unique cultures and traditions through the use of social media. Furthermore, technological advancements have enabled festivals to incorporate contemporary music and dance styles into their celebrations, attracting a younger audience. The Lagos Fashion Week and the Cape Town Jazz Festival are two festivals that have incorporated technology into their celebrations. However, there are fears that technology will dilute the authenticity of African festivals, leading to cultural identity loss.

Globalization's Impact on African Festivals

Globalization has had an impact on African festivals in both positive and negative ways. On the one hand, it has enabled African festivals to reach a wider audience and generate revenue through tourism. However, it has also resulted in the commodification of African culture, with festivals becoming commercialized and losing cultural significance. Furthermore, globalization has resulted in the fusion of African and Western cultures, with festivals adopting more Westernized music and dance styles. However, it is critical to preserve the cultural significance of African festivals and their authenticity.

The Difficulties and Possibilities of Preserving African Festivals

It can be difficult to keep African festivals alive in the face of modernization. The traditional practices and customs associated with these festivals are becoming increasingly difficult to maintain as social and economic conditions change. However, there are opportunities for African festivals to be preserved through education and awareness. African festivals are being preserved by organizations such as the African Arts Institute and the African Cultural Heritage Trust, which promote education, cultural exchange programs, and community engagement. We can ensure that future generations will continue to celebrate and appreciate the richness and diversity of African culture by preserving African festivals.
African festivals are an important part of African culture and heritage, and they help to promote cultural diversity and unity. While technology and globalization have altered how African festivals are celebrated, there are both challenges and opportunities for preserving their cultural significance. We can ensure that African festivals continue to thrive and be celebrated for future generations by promoting education, awareness, and community engagement.

2023.04.01 12:53 Valor_Kish DAE divide movies into light “easy to watch” movies and heavy “requiring 100% focus” movies?

Sorry if the title is confusing. I just wanna see if anyone can relate.
By light movies, I mean movies that are easy to start watching that don’t require your attention on small, important details; movies that can run in the background whose storyline isn’t complicated. By heavy movies, I mean the opposite; long movies with many details, complicated story and characters that require you to observe.
I’ve been putting off a lot of heavy movies at the moment since I don’t have the energy to direct my attention to them and their details. So I’ve just spent my time watching light movies off my watchlist, lmao… does anybody else divide movies into these two categories?
