    Another fatal police encounter. At this point I’m no longer even capable of surprise just hurt and frustration. I’m so tired of three senseless killings by the men and women who are supposed to be helping people and we already know there will be no consequences for the officers involved.

    • Lady Rain says:

      It’s indeed very frustrating and disheartening, especially on the heels of Philando Castille’s killer recently being acquitted over his death. I just can’t understand why this continues to happen.

    • Babs says:

      This is terrible. I have no words.

  2. Nem says:

    Londoners have it really hard these times.
    So sorry for the victims, as in France some medias don’t take it seriously (like for canada attack) as islamophobia is doing great here.
    Scarlett got what she desserves, she needs to come back home, finish her divorce, and reflect deeply on her career and public image for a reboot.

    It’s such a shame ScarJo is doing so bad. I was rooting for an Asian American actress.

    • Nem says:

      Hell waits for her and this sanders for this racist shame fest they put on the ghost in the shell franchise..

    • QueenB says:

      We will always have Oscar winner Emma Stone representing asians, dont worry.

      • Nem says:

        Crazy rich asians needs to be a success and a beginning to a real change.
        I recall my teen self so happy to see crouching tiger hidden dragon and believing i was to see a more diverse choice in my suburbs theater. I don’t want to live this kind of disappointment again

      • Kate says:

        @Nem, did you read the book? I want to read it before the movie comes out and I would love to have some feedback.

      • Nem says:

        @kate sorry for the wait i have phone problems.
        I ve read the first two books of the trilogy and found them really fun as a beach read.
        It’s good as it doesn’t only rely on the two protagonists, it describes their family and friends, and social network.
        They are perfect for film adaptation, with high drama, family secrets, etc.
        It s was refreshing to have a story about non white people without clichés.
        Now you have the advice of a french speaker who may not have understood all the details but it was a very very nice read.

      • graymatters says:

        I’ve read the first two as well — didn’t even know that it was a trilogy. I totally agree with your assessment of the first two. I also like the view of upper-crust Asian society as it brushes up against British values. So much fun.

      • Kate says:

        Thank you graymatters and Nem! I think I’m going to read the first one this summer. And French is also my first language.

    Ick at that popohollic link , why do link them, the comments are so creepy.
    I mean why do we need to read about some d-bag drooling over boobs?

  5. Margo S. says:

    That article from pajiba is worth the read. Just wow. When the facts are all laid out in front of you, it’s hard to not riot.

    • Mia4s says:

      I made the mistake of clicking on a link to a short film Colin Trevorrow made..dude has MAJOR issues with women. I’m not 100% sure he even realizes. Short of Michael Bay he’s looking like one of the worst choices to direct the finale of a Star Wars trilogy focused on a young woman. I hope then have some serious oversight on him all through production, or hire a writer with better instincts! I mean, his current co-writer’s last two credits were Kong Skull Island (Meh, OK) and Monster Trucks (WTF?!?!?!?!?).

      But you know women just don’t have the experience blah blah blah…*head explodes in rage*

  6. tw says:

    Kate McKinnon is SO funny in Rough Night, but otherwise it’s not a great film. I still had fun though because of Kate.

  7. detritus says:

    There is twitter video that shows the officers promising not to shoot Lyles. When she opened the door, they shot.
    A tiny pregnant woman, and they showed up armed to kill. I do not like this world.

    • L says:

      Frickin sad. Sad for the kids. Sad for the victim. Sad for the family of the victim. UGH! Just so tired of these sensless tragedies. This world is so shi**y right now.

      • jwoolman says:

        One of the neighbors, I think, had asked why didn’t they just taze her. She was tiny compared to the police. The knife was understandably a risk, but what is wrong with their training that they can’t disarm a small pregnant woman carrying a knife? Why shoot her? And in front of her children?

    • Wilma says:

      This makes me so sad and angry.

  8. Mia4s says:

    How many Marvel movies does Scarlett have left on her contract? I keep hearing about Chris #3…and possibly #4…finishing up after the next two but is she still under contract? I can’t see them being that keen to give her a raise so my guess is she’s done soon. But after the year she’s had maybe she will take whatever they offer. Yikes.

    • L says:

      Scarlett will be fine. I’m sure she’ll bounce back.

    • Nem says:

      She must be seething as Wonder woman proves she could have had a black widow solo film with box office success.
      And there is no way they will give her it now after this double mess on her name, she is not johnny depp.
      Must be karma GITS + woody allen, etc.

  9. Tiffany says:

    Miles Teller got a public intoxication in San Diego.

    And to think all he had to do was sleep it off in the drunk tank.

  10. Pandy says:

    Ah the Duggars. So holy!! Let’s count the ways.

    • Wilma says:

      If I understand the ‘sermon’ right, dude is actually saying that all religions that require you to do good things are wrong as in their christianity you will be saved even if you’re the greatest sinner. This must come in handy when you’re a family of hypocritical douchebags.

  11. TheOtherOne says:

    I kind of figured that Rough Night would suck since the only review they used in TV ads was the ONE review from Elle Magazine.

  12. Pam_L says:

    Zoe Kravitz is killing it in that red jumper with her sleek, short hair!

  13. Kelly says:

    I liked Rough Night a lot but I went to see it for Kate and Jillian

  14. Sorry, no dignity in that says:

    Johansson’s Ghost in the Shell made 170 Mio Dollars and it cost 110 Mio Dollars.

    Johansson’s Rough Night mad 12 Mio Dollars, has cost 20 Mio Dollars but has been running only 3 days so far.

    It is ridiculous to interpret that as “her films bombed pretty hard”. They were no big money makers so far if you consider return on investment. But hardly “bombed”.

    statistics from boxofficemojo.com

    • Mannori says:

      oh honey, you just posted the ultimate numbers receipts that her films BOMBED, and pretty hard that is, considering that both films relied on her star power alone, is all on her shoulders. I’m sure you know that nowadays films have to make at least three times their production budget to even achieve the breakeven numbers.

      • Zaratustra says:

        if 3 times the production costs were the standard for movies then Hollywood would be bancrupt already. MOST movies don’t make 3 times their production costs. Check your numbers.

  15. Ruyana says:

    In the top picture Scarlet’s face is completely triangular – just like a preying mantis. Can’t unsee it.
