Women Crush Wednesday (Throwback) – Lindsay Lohan “Smoke Break” by Ryan Fu

It was another hectic car chase with Lindsay today following her from her mandatory community service at the Red Cross. I always thought chasing someone on the streets was already crazy but successful following someone on the freeway took skills and balls. Especially when Lindsay was behind the wheel pretending it was the Indy 500 trying to get away from us. She wanted to stay out of the public eye because of the recent bad press about her rock star lifestyle. Of course, the media blew it out proportion calling her a troubled lost young adult, not resembling her younger former self. In any case, she didn’t give up all day long which seemed like she wasn’t going to give it up without a fight. 

We were determined to get a shot of her because everyone wanted to know what she was up to and everyone loves a fall from grace story. We carefully navigate our cars in and out of traffic, amazingly not causing any traffic accidents. She thankfully gets off the freeway heading towards Hollywood. We all prepare ourselves for her landing, telling my partner in the other car to get ready. She drives into a residential neighborhood, finally stopping at her assistant’s house. 

We quickly park our rides right in the middle of street blocking incoming traffic. We try to shoot her as soon as she gets out of her car but she puts her jacket over her head running towards the house as we try to get any kind of angle of her face but failing miserably. We then make the cardinal sin by getting on her property but I noticed what we were going and I stopped myself but unfortunately it didn’t stop the others from trying to take pictures of her. Looking at other paps not give a fuck about her private space as they walk all over the assistants Rose garden, shooting her right on her doorstep as she walks in to get away from the savages. 

Most of the paps decide to leave because they all felt like she wasn’t going out anymore because we acted like such animals towards her on the way in. My partner and I were the only ones to stay behind because we didn’t great shots of her going in. We quietly stayed inside of our cars hoping that she would step out again trying to get something for all our hard work today. An hour passes by as I start becoming claustrophobic inside of my own car.

I had to step outside, lighting up a fag. My partner had the same brilliant idea joining me outside as we smoked right in front of Lindsay’s house. As we were trying to relax we hear a faint call in the distance. It was Lindsay asking for a match.

We turn around looking at Lindsay walk towards us as we both don’t react to what was happening. She casually walks up towards us asking for a light again as my partner finally gives her a lighter. There was a bit of awkward silence for a couple of minutes as you would imagine as we both look at Lilo both of us thinking, why the hell we are not shooting the shit out her. She breaks the uncomfortable silence by talking about the weather as we respond with one word answers still in shock to what was going on. We were in the Twilight Show where she was a normal person and we weren’t scumbag paparazzis trying to get a photo.

We were just normal people sharing a metaphorical fire together using the bond of lung cancer. Looking at her carefully smoking her cigarette, she didn’t look like a troubled or lost person. She looked like any another young woman trying to get her shit together but with the add pressure of media. If we were in her shoes we wouldn’t probably handle it as well as she did. She finished her last puff saying it was great talking to us even though we only said a couple of words. It was nice to see we could be normal people if only for a couple of minutes. 

She walked back into her house as we walk back into our cars thinking about how amazing that interaction was between us and Lindsay. A couple of minutes later she came out with her assistant as we start shooting her again, walking towards her car pretending that we didn’t have an incredible bond we made just minutes ago.

But this is what it is, a symbiotic relationship between the hunted and the hunters, but always knowing we were all the same.

Just a bunch of people trying to make sense of this crazy ass world we are living in which all of us trying are best and hopefully we can stop cutting each other down, but let’s face it.

Haters are going to hate. It’s easy to say shit while you’re looking up from the bottom. I say “fuck em,” give them a reason to hate and just do you. Remember not everyone liked Jesus, but it didn’t stop him from being legendary.

When Freed From Its Past, Beauty and the Beast Has Its Own Brand of Magic

When Things Go Pop!

There is no real reason why a 2017 live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast should exist.

mv5bmjeymzexmdcznv5bml5banbnxkftztgwmzyzmjczote-_v1_sy1000_cr006741000_al_

The 1991 animated film is considered a masterpiece by many, the first of its kind to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination. The characters are iconic, the songs legendary, the artwork exquisite. Even those who find the plot troubling and outdated would be hard-pressed to find that landmark ballroom scene to be anything less than spell-binding. In other words, why watch a remake when you can just watch the cartoon? Disney, equal parts studio and relentless marketing behemoth, has banked on moviegoers ignoring the cynicism to get swept in the nostalgia of their tale as old as time.

Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a young woman living in a small town in 18th century France who longs for more than her provincial life. That life is upended when her father is…

America’ s love affair with celebrities-Why? (BLW Contributor)

MJ

hollywood-close

I’m just curious—what is with the love affair America has with celebrities?

Celebrities are just people doing a job, which happens to be entertainment. They entertain us. They make us laugh. They make us cry. They make us feel. All by pretending to be something they aren’t or someone they aren’t.  Or by singing a song.

They are in front of us. Constantly. Very seldom—probably never—do I see a news program without a story about a celebrity. We see their faces on clothes, bags, magazines, social media, everywhere. We hear about them in conversations and hold conversations about them. And we don’t even know them. It seems that our lives are consumed by unreal characters played by people we don’t even know.

We hear about the personal lives of these celebrities continually. Who is flirting with whom? Who is dating whom? Who is getting a divorce and why? Who gets…

What Happens On Skull Island Stays On Skull Island

kong-skull-island-trailer

Reader, I come to you with a broken heart. Have you ever invested so much into something that it consumed you? Have you ever felt a passion so strong that you genuinely believed that the object your affection was something that could define the rest of your life?

Do you know what it’s like to have that, and then lose it? Watch it slip through your fingers and make you ask yourself “Dear god, what did I do wrong?” Well, I do. I know that feeling all too well. And I’m here to share my story with you.

Kong: Skull Island is … a little mediocre.

Yeah, that’s what I get for being on the hype train. I was hoping that Legendary Pictures was finally going to be doing something interesting with this IP, especially since the Good-to-Bad Kong Movie Ratio, or GTBKMR, is so staggering even by giant monster movie…

Eye of the Writer

Dear World

Please Kill Me,

Greetings, and Happy end-week, (or just Friday, depending on your level of enthusiasm). Welcome, and as always it’s a sincere pleasure to have you.

Assuming that you’ve got nothing better to do at the moment, (you don’t), how about we share some literary insight? (#MeFirst #OneSidedConvo.)

Any who’s it’s (whozits?),

Villains, (also known as – the real reason we love Batman so damn much).

There is no good hero, without their ne’er do well counterpart. You know him: the a**hole, the fighter, the anarchist, (the guy who makes your sandwich without gloves on) – he/she is the bane of our hero’s existence, (that we root for -until of course things get a little crazy).

Writing a great villain is complex work, however, there is a bit of a formula to it – that I will breakdown simply as E.V.I.L. (#PatentPending).

“Get Out” Shows How Scary Racism Really Is

1

If you haven’t seen the new film, Get Out, I’m certain you’ve heard about it by now.  This out-of-the-box thriller surely left audiences with lots to discuss.  Before I continue, I will give a much needed spoiler alert, so if you have not seen the movie…GET OUT (pun intended)! 

Alright, let’s get to it.  It’s taken me a couple of weeks to gather my thoughts because there was A LOT to process.  There were moments when I laughed so hard, scenes when I jumped because of the suspense, and also moments when my jaw was on the floor.  Get Out‘s director, Jordan Peele, pushed the envelope and as crazy as it seems, his depiction of race relations in this country was strikingly real.

The movie was a great depiction of how blacks are often perceived by other races…specifically, the white race.  I didn’t walk away thinking that white people were the devil or that blacks shouldn’t date whites, but I did walk away thinking that Get Out was one of the first films I’ve seen that correctly shed light on what blacks sometimes experience.  Yes, the movie was an extreme depiction because I have faith that society would never get to the point where white people would literally hypnotize black people into a modern-day form of slavery.  However, the film does address the actual existence of racism and the admittance of historical slavery, through very deliberate references and strong symbolism.

Logan: What Every Superhero Movie Could Be

mnmohawk

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE THIS MOVIE SPOILED FOR YOU, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COME BACK TO THIS ARTICLE ONCE YOU’VE SEEN THE MOVIE

Before we begin, let me admit to four different things:

  1. I enjoy superhero movies
  2. I did not read comic books growing up
  3. I am not a film critic
  4. I did not read or watch any reviews before writing this piece

Knowing that this is my lens should help explain my reaction to this and other superhero movies. Also, this will be more of a broad overview; for actual story points, go see the movie.

In recent weeks, I have tried going into movies as green as possible; that is, trying to go in without knowing much about the movie or having seen any trailers. This decision came after seeing the first two trailers for Logan, and I must say that the first, with the…
