Now a lot of people on the internet have raised up the “cultural appropriation” that may or may not be happening in this MV.
What do you guys think?
This raises a lot of interesting questions, especially in today’s multi-cultural/globalized word; for instance, is it OK for non-american to rap? Should you wear a red bandana if you do not come from LA? Is it OK for Asian to sport cornrows?
I am especially interested in this matter, as a black person born and raised somewhere else than the USA.
I made the mistake to watch Death Bell 2, alone in my room yesterday….
I remember how the first one surprised me more than scared me, because I only expected a simple asian horror movie (with its ghost) and got more like a slasher/thriller movie.
I was kinda excited about the background story and how the plot would unfold in the part. 2. But even if it started well, it fell flat so fast… There is basically no characters development and about 1h in the movie, we already know who’s the killer and what led to his actions… There is still a small twist at the end, but still…
They also got rid of the puzzle part so it’s just a lot of killing happening in 30mn. Yeah only 30 mn because you need to use some time to set up things at the beginning of a movie, right? And in the last 20mn almost nothing happens (as you already know who’s the killer).
What was supposed to scare me to death pretty much left me with the blank expression Ji-Yeon sports the whole movie.
- with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Anniston etc…
Yesterday I went to watch Horrible Bosses. It was a free event for me, with complimentary drinks and hot dog, but what really happened is that we “crashed” a secretary event.
“Very appropriate”, I thought.
I wasn’t especially looking forward to it, I saw the trailer, I thought it was funny but not hilarious, and as you know, they always put the funniest parts in the trailers… I am not getting fooled anymore. Also as much as I love Charlie Day and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, I really don’t like Jason Bateman… I have seen some movies with him and I don’t understand his appeal… I don’t even find him funny.
Now onto the movie… It was nice, and the story actually made sense… It had its good moments, its good jokes, and its funny situations… But I think who we have to thank the most for the movie are the three horrible bosses. They simply stole the show. They were excellent. You can totally relate to the main characters and even if I thought their idea was completely crazy, it helped me put stuff in perspective. So a good movie overall
- How can such flawless group in the visual department be lacking so much in the curve’s one… Anyway Eunjung always the most beautiful and this song has grown on me a lot… I feel that - with Hot Summer - it has the perfect summer feel.
- This weekend was relax for me, so I spend a lot of time watching TV and Music Bank and what not… The new Infinite song caught my eyes and I realize that Infinite, since they debuted, always had that potential to grow big… The dances are always top notch, executed well in sync and for a boyband, it looks like more than half of them can ACTUALLY sing!!! And with different ranges!!! Unfortunately, who cares about talent nowadays in kpop… So that’s what Infinite is lacking… Finding their sound, their style that are gonna make them stick out from the rest.
- Browsing the comments over at Youtube, I stumbled upon someone who mentionned this video…. It starts around 2mn… Definitely interesting…. This video was released almost one month ago… The choregraphy is sometimes very similar… I wonder…. Maybe he got the chance to work on it though…
- So a lot of hype regarding Beyonce’s new single… We’ve got some snapshots of designers outfits and a teaser so everyone was excited, including me… Watching the video, I got vibes from differents artists… Britney & Lady Gaga came to mind first, with the post-apocalyptic design. I don’t know what’s with this trend, but it’s getting a little tired… Beyonce’s blond hair and make up reminded me of JLo or Shakira at times (especially when she’s posing/rolling on the floor)… But the biggest vibe I got was from the dance, who reminded me of this.
At the end it’s Beyonce and a catchy song so I think I’ll like it
I didn’t have any expectations going to see this movie… But I left the theater sad… Sad about the state of movies nowadays… There is nothing bad about this movie but there’s nothing good as well… No story, no character developments, you don’t even know why Thor fell for the human, but you SURE know why she fell for him… I mean looook at that boooodyyyy!!
Actually Thor is a little like a drink… You take your “affirmative action” characters (yes we do have a black guy and EVEN an asian guy in Asgaard loooool), your power women that don’t take shit but are still romantic at the end, you mix everything with the help of Thor ridiculous hammer flying scenes and you sprinkle the top with a little humour (only at the beginning though). You end up with a nice drink, but it doesn’t really leave you any aftertaste…
I think they were in a hurry to wrap everything for the Avengers… In the previews, we’ve got Captain America and it doesn’t look better…
- I get Cop Out’s vibes… Funny but mostly annoying….I don’t really get the appeal of Jason Bateman… I’m only excited because this might be the occasion for Charlie of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to make the big jump to movies!
