IDK, people can stop recommending True Detective to me.
I’d rather not bother ‘til next season.
Not only because I’m bitter about this McConnaisance shit screwing over Chiwetel, but the supposed ~brilliance~ of this show has white dude circlejerk stink all over it. A complex dynamic between two yt dudes? So original y’all.
You’re telling me to give a chance to a show that treats its female characters like shit and has virtually no significant PoC? No effin’ thank you.
Yes, people have said that the show does that on purpose to make a point, but actually, fuck that. My biggest annoyance ever is when a narrative attempts to critique social structures and phenomena without including the perspectives of the marginalized/oppressed. If you don’t include them, it’s half-assed and you’re doing your part to glorify the privileged imo. (See: Wolf of Wall Street)
Like I wasn’t keen at the premise of Breaking Bad at all, I only watched it so I can justly defend Skyler from her babymen haters. And you know what, without her (and Gus as well later on), watching BB would not be worth it for me.
FFS, how the hell is a nine-page graphic design assignment that takes 10000 hours to do only worth 5% of the grade? Like… ???
I might as well hand in an incomplete project. This is just a monumental waste of time, especially when I could be studying for other things that’s actually worth more.
Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor."Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender
Fun fact: the only asian actress to be nominated for the oscar lead actress role was in 1935.
Out of all the major categories, the Academy got a total of, like, 3 categories accurately (Nyong’o, Cuaron, 12YaS).
Everything else: F L O P.
