    Respect (2020)

    This is the thread for Respect, the Aretha Franklin biopic to be released in December with Jennifer Hudson-who was selected by Ms. Franklin herself-in the title role. The teaser trailer just dropped and it looks good IMO. The film costars Marlon Wayans, Forrest Whittaker, Marc Maron, Audra McDonald and Mary J. Blige as Dinah Washington.
  2. Bumping it up with a moment from NASCAR, of all things. Several weeks ago, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, who's biracial, chose to not only publicly show support for Black Lives Matter, he convinced NASCAR to remove the Confederate flag from its merchandise. Needless to say, this not only doesn't sit well with many NASCAR fans, someone left a noose in Wallace's garage to intimidate him, which not only didn't work, just before the Talladega race, every single driver lead Wallace and his car to the front of the line-where Wallace was met by the original #43, Richard Petty, making Wallace burst into tears.
  3. Here's da thread for Da 5 Bloods, Spike Lee's latest joint, now playing on Netflix, about four African-American Vietnam war vets who are looking for a stash of gold that was hidden during the war, along with their fallen comrade, played in flashbacks by Chadwick Boseman. The film also co-stars Norm Lewis, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters and Isiah Whitlock Jr. ( both from The Wire), Jean Reno and Delroy Lindo, whose performance is a revelation, to say the least. If Lindo's not nominated for an Oscar, then the MPAA is even worse than ever, as far as I'm concerned.
  4. Bumping it up with the numerous disturbing images surrounding the murder of George Floyd and the aftermath, from the videos of the actual crime itself, which was Floyd being subdued by four cops for allegedly passing a fake $20 bill, with the ringleader having his knee on his throat so hard that it killed Floyd while his partners did nothing to stop him, despite pleas from witnesses, who were horrified, to say the least. Then there's the global response, which was also disturbing, on several levels, whether it's looters who trash and burn businesses and rob them, making a mockery of the legit protesters and their message in the process, civilians who run over protesters or the cops who not only arrested journalists on-camera, they fired tear gas and rubber bullets at reporters, some cops even ran over some protesters, making cops look even worse than ever. Rest In Power to George Flood, Armaud Arbery, Breanna Taylor and anyone who's been murdered because of police brutality in general and because of their color in particular. To their killers, ROT! IN! HELL!-if Hell will have you, that is.

    Tenet (2020)

    My verdict: 🤯 Once again, Nolan has broken my brain in the best way. If me or the planet are still alive by the release date -whenever it is-I might actually see it in a theater.
  6. Even better, according to Dove's Twitter feed, they're donating products to various hospitals and HCWs nationwide.
  7. Bumping up to add Brad Pitt's spot-on tribute to Dr. Anthony Fauci on the April 25th, 2020 episode of SNL. Pitt perfectly captured Fauci with both jokes and physical comedy. I'd rank it up there with Alex Baldwin's Donald Trump, Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton and Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer. Fun fact: it was Fauci who jokingly chose Pitt to play him on SNL, proving that sometimes, dreams do come true.
  8. Bumping it up to give props to Brad Pitt for his version of Dr. Fauci on the April 25th, 2020 episode of SNL. While most of it was hilarious, the best moment was at the end, when Pitt broke character to honor Fauci and the first responders who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic. Sweet, moving and very classy.
  9. My verdict: Better than the first. The first at-home episode was good, but it was still a little awkward. This one showed the cast is starting to get used to the new "normal" in some ways, but won't in others. Like Pete said, "It's better with an audience." As Dr. Fauci, Brad Pitt was perfect. Like Kate McKinnon's Hillary playing "Hallelujah" post the 2016 election Cold Open, Pitt made me laugh one moment and cry the next. I'd even rank it with Alex Baldwin's Trump and Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer. Pitt hasn't impressed me this much without taking off his shirt in years. Pete Davidson & Adam Sandler's "Stuck In the House" was another highlight. Not even Rob Schneider could ruin it. Loved the supermarket sketch way more than the customers love Dasani water, for whatever reason. "Big Dominican Lunch" was not only funny, it made me crave chicken pot pie. I ❤️ Paul Rudd. Because it can never be said enough: "Cocaine's not gonna cut itself."
  10. Between Stanley Tucci posting videos of making cocktails, Chris Evans and his dog Dodger on Twitter, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II shirtless on Twitter, Chris Meloni shirtless in a kilt (also on Twitter) and Ansel Elgort posting nudes on his Instagram page for COVID-19 based charities, this quarantine keeps getting better. 😍😘🥰
  11. I'm not paying attention and I'm still outraged. The Brucas/Wiley/Willow/SLS storyline alone makes me appreciate the barge even more. Brad's actions were wrong, to put it mildly. Instead of immediately telling Lucas the truth about their child's death and grieving the loss together, Brad not only lied, he stole Wiley, letting Lucas love a child he knew wasn't theirs while not letting him mourn their loss, wasting precious time that they'll never get back. That being said, while Brad does deserve to be punished, he does not deserve to be judged by the likes of Julian, Mooby and Shebeast. Julian's interference not only made things worse, it be almost got Lucas killed. As for Mooby, given all that he's done and gotten/gets away with, he's so not the one to judge Brad about the evils of child-stealing. One word: "meathook." Never forget, never forgive. RIP, AJ. Because it can never, ever be said too much, S!T!F!U!Carly! You too, Sam. Back to the barge.
  12. Same here. Weinstein's suffering should be as long, slow and painful as possible because maybe then he'll know what he put the survivors through for years, if not decades. I have zero fucks to give about Weinstein's feelings, his comfort or his life span, unless it's shrinking.
  13. As someone who has a mother who's both elderly and has a heart condition, I know all too well how dangerous the virus is. My point is that after all the nasty shit that Weinstein has gotten away with for decades, Karma has finally caught up with him not once, not twice, but several times: the accusers coming forward, destroying his career and his marriage in the process, his being convicted/imprisoned and now his being infected. Normally I wouldn't wish illness on anyone, but ever there was an exception, it's Harvey Weinstein and as far as I'm concerned, the more he suffers, the better.
  14. In light of Weinstein's catching it, in his case, I would like to change the name of Coronovirus to Karmavirus.
  15. Just when it seems like Weinstein couldn't sink any lower, his disrespect of both Ms. Beckinsale and her daughter not only proves otherwise, it exposes his using 9/11 charity work to defend himself for the hypocritical bullshit it is. Weinstein's holding the Serendipity premiere so soon after 9/11 wasn't about restoring normalcy to NYC; it was just another excuse to bully another woman, in front of her child, at that. Ms. Beckinsale's Serendipity premiere tux was not only gorgeous, given the meaning behind it, as far as I'm concerned, it's her best look. Harvey Weinstein is such a sexist, vicious asshole he makes Jeffrey Baratheon look like a saint.
