'Precious Jones' And Our 'Classist Conditioning' (Things That Make You Go Hmm)

23 May 2013 7:50 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Let me preface this post by saying that I despise labels and hierarchies in general; they are divisive, instead of unifying, and I'm always looking for ways to break them down. Alas, this is the society we've all helped create, whether passively, or intentionally, so, one has to deal, otherwise others will deal for you.  All that said... please indulge me, if you don't mind. What if Lee DanielsPrecious was a comedy? What if Soul Plane, or Booty Call and similar comedies were dramas?  Inspired by recent conversations I had with friends, and myself (yes, I converse with myself from time to time), I wondered if what I would call our conditioned classist thoughts »

Here's A Picture Of Jamie Foxx As Electro In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

16 April 2013 12:25 PM, PDT | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

You know, when I say that Jamie Foxx is a chameleon, I sort of meant that to mean that he's a versatile actor. Think about it: did you really see the brilliance of films like Ray and Collateral and Django Unchained coming from the guy who once also made Booty Call? No, you didn't. But that's okay because no one did!

And Jamie Foxx has continued to slay Hollywood, with a glorious resume and knockout talent. But this leaked photo from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (no, Tobey Maguire is still not coming back, it's Andrew Garfield now, stop asking) features Foxx not just looking electric blue, but his skin looks strange and chameleon like. I would definitely never mistake that guy for an alumnus from In Living Color. Not a chance in hell. Take a shot below:

What do you think of the first look at Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2? »

Unfortunately, this is the society we've all helped create, whether passively, or intentionally, so one has to deal, otherwise others will deal for you.
