They should have cast a green-skinned chick to play Gamora and a cyborg to play Nebula

When has there ever been a biopic where and actor didn’t wear prosthetics of one sort or another to more closely resemble the historical person? Hugh Grant wore a huge prosthetic nose playing Chopin in ‘Impromptu’ in 1991 (except the nose looked so stupid on-screen they had to re-film virtually all of his scenes in Read more

For some reason this reminds me a little of that interview with Thandie Newton from last month where Newton pretty clearly stated in no uncertain terms that she still defends the intentions of the movie Crash and believed in what it was trying to say about race, while the interviewer kept bending over backwards trying Read more

An actor should not apologize for playing anyone. Why should an actor look exactly like the person they are portraying. They did a movie about Bob Dylan where 12 different people “played” Dylan, including a couple of women. The only thing I see them doing wrong is trying to make her look like Simone.

I let this article sit for a bit before visiting to see what people would post for ‘reasonable discussions’ these days. Not many takers. I guess in the current era of biblical plagues and ruthless tyrannies the word ‘reasonable’ limits the choice of topic.

If it wasn’t for T2: Judgement Day having Sarah Connor be an absolute badass then The Terminator probably wouldn’t be so fondly remembered because it’s easy to forget how in the first one she is purely valuable because of her womb, that’s it. Read more

I think that’s on a case by case basis, personally. You can say that a black actor gives a certain unique perspective to a black role, but I think that’s less true with VAs.

If you want better representation of PoC in animated media, I think you have to start with getting more of them in as writers, producers, and Read more

I think the general idea isn’t so much that Harry Shearer shouldn’t be allowed to play Dr Hibbert as maybe not every single character regardless of color needs to be played by a white person. If it were an occasional thing and POC were getting their fair share of voice work, it would be less of an issue.

Yes let’s limit who has freedom to speak and what people are allowed to say. That's always worked so well in the past. Read more

A.) I thought it was touchingly corny given that I can imagine working in an office like that is mundane and rather boring in everyday terms since you’re not a bunch of propmasters or movie stars but HR analysts, contract negotiators, and mundane clerical staff.

B.) That doll is FUCKING HUGE. This was supposed to be Read more
