    Did everybody see that Suni Lee was the victim of a racist attack in L.A.? She and a group of friends, all Asians, were waiting for an Uber when some people drove by, shouting racial slurs and telling them to “go back where they came from”, and then pepper sprayed them.

    I’m so disgusted and angry and scared at the path that this country is heading down.

      Whom ever did this is vile and should be locked up!

      I saw that yesterday on the BBC…just awful. I live in a country where racist attacks are on the rise as well and it scares me as a person of colour. Lots of attacks especially against elderly people which makes me worry for my parents. I hope they catch whoever did this.

      One thing I noticed about the reporting was on the BBC the article says “US Olympian Sunisa Lee ‘pepper sprayed in racist attack’” while the American headlines say some version of “Sunisa Lee says she was [claims she was, etc.] pepper sprayed in a racist attack.” Legal butt covering, I guess, but it rubs me the wrong way because it seems to imply we don’t know if she’s telling the truth.

      I don’t even know what to say. My insides physically hurt when I read it. I’m still speechless. Nothing feels adequate or comes close to capturing the proper disgust.

      That’s heartbreaking!

      Americans have shown time and again that we are terrible people. The insurection, the anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers, the rise of racist attacks….as a society, we’ve just really lost our way. It’s embarrassing and shameful.

    Wow, when I first saw that photo of Lizzy Caplan for a second I thought it was an old picture of Sean Young.

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Lizzy is actually a perfect choice. Anyone see her in that Steven King series, ‘Castle Rock’? Amazing.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      She totally is. I’ve always been a little sad she didn’t get the career that Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfreid, and Lindsay Lohan got after Mean Girls, because she was so great in it.

      That said, she has steadily worked, and continues to be so great in her roles, so maybe she is getting the career, just spread out for longer. 😀

    Although it displays great acting performances, Fatal Attraction should stay in the 80s. Unless we are going to subvert the misogyny at the heart of the 1987 film, it’s not worth rebooting. And even if it’s a very thoughtful (and even successful!) reboot, it’s STILL a reboot.

    • Bettyrose says:

      According to Backlash, Susan Faludi’s book, the misogyny was largely Michael Douglas’s
      doing. He felt the original story/script was emasculating, so required certain changes. For example, the wife was supposed to have a career and some actual lines, but that was nixed to make her has close to a Stepford wife as possible. I’m not sure much was changed about Glen Close’s role but the aesthetics of her apartment were designed to be especially drab and lonely.

      Now the idiocy of a 36 year old declaring it’s her last chance for a baby wouldn’t fly any more. Also, it would probably be banned if they still plan to show a pregnant woman being killed (yeah everyone forgets Glen’s character was pregnant at the end).

      But I can’t say I’m not a little intrigued to see where they take it. Her craziness will have to run deeper than just the bitter spinster trope.

    • SomeChick says:

      a reboot of misogynist garbage is still garbage.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Agreed. Hated that movie.

    “The backlash against Chris Pratt won’t go anywhere.”


    I’ll drink from the special occasions bottle of wine when he’s finally gone.

    That Buzzfeed article is terrible, though. They act like the people who come for Pratt are meanies and religious intolerants who hate conservatives lol. There’s actual, legitimate documentation of Pratt’s terrifying disregard for animal lives and of his bigotry.

    Very disappointed in Buzzfeed, tbh. That Elamin Abdelmahmoud person sounded like they were paid by Pratt, jfc, there’s no way you don’t know what Pratt has done unless you do your damnest to shut your eyes and ears.

    Oh man now I need to rewatch the OG Fatal Attraction. “I’m not going to be IGNORED, DAN!”
