Michael Davis: The Black Hollywood Shuffle, Part 2

25 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Niggers, Get A Fucking Clue

Please read last week’s installment .

Last week I recounted what happened to me, at the hands of a black woman, while backstage at The Arsenio Hall Show some months ago. I’m not pointing out she was a black woman, that’s not important.

What’s important is she’s black.

Most, from what I could see of Arsenio’s staff is black. From my brief time there, I noticed most were pleasant and helpful. But the woman who threatened to call security on me was anything but.

She treated me as if I was a dark skinned nigger from the country and she was a light skinned lady from a well-to-do Negro family. There was a time when many light skinned blacks built communities and excluded any black person “darker than a paper bag” from living among them.

How fucked up is that, »

21 November 2014 11:02 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The show's professional dancers are expected to perform alongside the acts, with the footage being broadcast during the December 7 results show.

The Manchester group's seventh studio album, III, is due to be released on the Monday prior to the performance (December 1).

'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Soundtrack: A Track-by-Track Review

19 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Every year for the past few years, a new "Hunger Games" movie has been unleashed on the world and those releases have come complete with a slew of tie-in merchandise, cunningly synergistic and essential in the studio's desire to build hype and awareness around the young-adult novel adaptations (which star Jennifer Lawrence and are based on books by Suzanne Collins, of course).

But the soundtracks to the films have become mini-events in and of themselves, able to build the kind of fervor the movies usually do (with just as much anticipation and speculation). We attended the junket for next week's "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1"over the weekend, and were handed a copy of the brand-new album (out now physically and digitally) and figured we should rundown the album properly. So here we go!

(Sorry, streaming versions of the songs weren't available for all tracks!)

‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ Review: Gorgeous, Seductive, Playful and Deadly

18 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

People are living in the Iranian town of Bad City, but there is very little life. A dry riverbed is home to an ever-growing pile of dead bodies that no one seems to notice or care about, the streets are mostly empty of people but saturated in their despair and the only constant is the hum of oil well machinery pulling the earth’s black life-blood from beneath the surface. Arash (Arash Marandi) stands apart with his blue jeans, white tee-shirt and classic American car — one it took him 2,191 days of work to afford — but it’s his ambition for something more than this dead-end town can offer that keeps him moving. His dreams take a hit thanks to his junkie father and a local thug, but something dark and wondrous is just around the corner. Drifting through the night is a young woman (Sheila Vand) whose casual dress is complemented by a jet black chador, and »

Bill Cosby Cancels David Letterman Appearance Amid Rape Allegations

15 November 2014 11:08 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Cosby has canceled an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” scheduled for Wednesday as mainstream media outlets heighten the scrutiny of longstanding allegations of sexual assault leveled against the comedian.

A rep for Cosby did not respond to a request for comment. CBS would not comment on the change in “Late Show’s” Wednesday guest lineup.

Cosby’s retreat from the national TV spotlight comes after an Arizona woman, Barbara Bowman, revived allegations that he drugged and raped her in the mid-1980s when she was an aspiring actress who met him in New York City. Cosby and his reps in the past have strongly denied the allegations from Bowman and other women.

On Thursday, the Washington Post published a lengthy column by Bowman that recounted multiple incidents of sexual assault and her struggle to have her claim believed. At the time of the incidents, Cosby was »

Marilyn Monroe's Lost Love Letters to Be Auctioned

It's no secret Joe Dimaggio loved Marilyn Monroe. The baseball great cried at her funeral and for 20 years had flowers placed at her crypt several times a week. The public displays were unusual for the famously stoic and private Dimaggio. Now, his heartbreak over the breakup of their marriage will get a rare public airing when "Marilyn Monroe's Lost Archives" goes up for bid at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills next month.

Harry Styles 'Lucky' to be in Taylor Swift Songs

11 November 2014 4:41 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Harry Styles is ''lucky'' to be Taylor Swift's songs and the One Direction hunk says he's glad the American pop star with the celebrity dating and songwriting history wrote good songs about him. The 20-year-old singer - who briefly dated the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker two years ago - has admitted he was pleased with the songs she had written about him. When asked during a Google Hangout about having songs penned about him, he said: ''We write from personal experience, and I think everyone does, so it would be hypocritical of us to be like, 'Oh you can't write about us.' ''And they're really good. They're good songs. So I'm really lucky in that sense.'' Meanwhile, Harry Styles has recently insisted that the gender of his other halves doesn't matter to him. The One Direction heartthrob believes personality is more important in a prospective partner. When »

Film Review: ‘America the Beautiful 3: The Sexualization of Our Youth’

17 October 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After porn and advertising, movies rank high among the most corrosive forces influencing young Americans’ ideas of sexuality today, which makes Darryl Roberts’ latest social-outrage essay, “America the Beautiful 3: The Sexualization of Our Youth,” a clever tool with which to fight back. While Roberts doesn’t have either the marketing budget or the filmmaking resources to launch a full-blown counter-attack, he has shrewdly chosen a mass-media format to reach parents and mature young viewers. The unwieldy result serves as a contemplative yet frustratingly superficial critique of a toxic situation in which audiences are being treated as sexual objects at increasingly early ages.

A racy counterpart to Roberts’ 2008 docu, which dealt with how mass media are shaping a generation’s ideas of body image and self-esteem, this latest film seems destined for home viewing, where people renting it for the wrong reasons might actually stand to learn something amid the »

Why Former Robin Chris O'Donnell Thinks Ben Affleck as Batman Was an "Easy Decision"

15 October 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Chris O'Donnell had the distinction of playing Robin twice: once to Val Kilmer's Batman in 1995's Batman Forever and again to George Clooney's version of the Caped Crusader in 1997's Batman & Robin. So when he stopped by our La offices recently, we had to ask what he thinks about the franchise's newest Dark Knight, Ben Affleck. "I think he'll be great. I think it's an easy decision for Ben to do that. He's got nothing to lose - he's a made man, so to speak, in Hollywood. He directed Argo. He won an Academy Award. There's no downside," Chris told us. "And the fact of the matter is, having been through it myself, there is nothing that has a greater reach internationally than a film like Batman. Ben's a smart businessman. He knows that, and if you thought you couldn't expand his brand further, he will by virtue of Batman. »

Picturehouse Acquires ‘Gloria,’ Pop Biopic Of The “Mexican Madonna”

6 October 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Picturehouse has acquired U.S. rights to Gloria, the controversial Mexican biopic based on the rise, fall, and rise of Latin American pop-rock icon Gloria Trevi. The musical drama stars Sofia Espinosa as Trevi, the singer-songwriter who earned the nicknames “The Mexican Madonna” and “The Supreme Diva of Mexican Pop” with her sexually- and politically-charged brand of chart-toppers in the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s. After signing off on the project, Trevi attempted last year to block the project from moving forward. A January 2015 release is now planned with Universal Pictures International releasing the film in Mexico and Latin America.

Trevi, who’s sold over 20 million records in her 25-year career, is no stranger to controversy. In 2000 she, manager-husband Sergio Andrade, and a backup singer were arrested and charged with corrupting minors in a sex cult; Trevi spent over four years in jail before being acquitted and freed. She released »

Felix Kjellberg's PewDiePie channel is not at the top of the charts this week. Instead, the #1 spot in the Top 50 belongs to DisneyCollectorBR.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Labyrinth of Lies’

13 September 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A principled young prosecutor in post-wwii Germany uncovers inconvenient truths about his country’s recent past in “Labyrinth of Lies,” an intelligent and arresting fact-based drama that plays like a more streamlined version of the high-minded, blunt-spoken, socially conscious “prestige pictures” made by Stanley Kramer and similarly ambitious American auteurs during the 1950s and ’60s. , the campaign to identify, locate, and bring to trial some 22 “very normal Germans” who had actively facilitated the Final Solution at Auschwitz — but remained unpunished, and largely forgotten, long after the war ended. Commercial prospects and awards potential are such that Sony Pictures Classics acquired North American distribution rights for the film shortly after its Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Alexander Fehling (“Inglourious Basterds”) evinces an effective mix of naivete, idealism and implacable dedication — along with flashes of self-righteousness, and bottled-up rage that occasionally is uncorked – in the lead role of Johann Radmann, a composite of »

Miley Cyrus Gives Advice - Smoke Some Weed, Ignore Facebook, Instagram Comments

Miley Cyrus is giving life advice again, the American pop singer says she believes people could be a lot happier if they just smoke some weed and ignored negative comments and posts on Facebook and Instagram. The 21-year-old singer believes social media - such as Facebook and Instagram - causes more damage to your mental health than smoking cannabis. She explained: ''I put some picture of me smoking weed... on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad. ''You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. ''You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook.'' The 'Wrecking Ball hitmaker - who caused controversy last year when she danced provocatively up against Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards 2013 -doesn't want to be a role model for young girls because all she's »

Charles Burnett's Other Masterpiece 'To Sleep With Anger'

13 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

"To Sleep With Anger" was released with a small bit of fanfare in 1990. Charles Burnett had already acquired a reputation as one of our most important homegrown auteurs even if most of the audience, black and white alike, were unfamiliar with his work. The film was released at something of an apex for Black American Cinema (and Black American Pop Culture in general). "Do The Right Thing" had only been released a year before, "Boyz N The Hood" was less than a year away; new black auteurs were appearing every year with a mandate to be successful and say something authentic about our experience in this country. Heady times. Danny Glover had »

Lauren Bacall Dead At 89

12 August 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most iconic figures of Hollywood’s Golden Age is no longer with us. Today, sultry-voiced actress Lauren Bacall died at the age of 89 after suffering a massive stroke, multiple sources confirm.

Bacall is perhaps best known for her partnership with fellow Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart, both on-screen and off. In 1944 classic To Have and Have Not, Bacall’s first big screen role (and the one in which she delivered her most iconic line: “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”), the sparks between the two ignited one of the film industry’s most enduring love stories. The pair married the next year and went on to star in such 1940s classics as The Big SleepDark Passage and Key Largo, staying together until Bogart’s death in 1957. Bacall was later engaged to Frank Sinatra and married another acting legend, »
