"THIRTEEN DAYS" (2000) Review

In 1991, Kevin Costner starred in "J.F.K.", Oliver Stone's Oscar nominated film that explored the death of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Nine years later, Kevin Costner returned to the land of this country's own "Camelot", in this docudrama about the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 from the viewpoint of President Kennedy and the men who served his Administration.

Or, "It's trolls all the way down!"

(NOTE: Content work-safe, but beware of links!)

I'm getting dizzy here.

First, Emma Watson makes a speech on women's issues to the U.N.

Second, 4chan's /b/tards go batshit over it, and post a "countdown" threatening to spread pictures of Emma Watson nudes all over the Net.

Third, it turns out it wasn't the /b/tards at all, but a dodgy PR firm named Rantic Marketing, which apparently is the same group of people as Social VEVO.

Is it possible that Rantic Marketing may, in fact, be 4chan, so that 4chan were actually trolling themselves? The owner of 4chan, moot, kicked out all the old moderators, replaced them with new ones, and started to enforce stricter rules. Apparently there has been a tug-of-war between Moot and the 4chan posters for years, and now 4chan'ers are trying to organize a mass exodus on October 1.

You know, if the threat weren't so vile, this Russian doll set of hoaxes would be a thing of strange beauty.

"MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" (2001) Review

One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" television movies into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss Lemon (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last television movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".Read more... )

"PHOEBE HALLIWELL AND THE NEXUS THEORY"

Recently, I watched the ”CHARMED” Season One episode called (1.15) "Is There a Woogy in the House?". In this episode, Phoebe Halliwell’s childhood fear of a boogeyman in the basement called the ”Woogeyman” proves to be true and it ends up taking possession of her and a few others – including her sister Prue’s ex-boyfriend, Andy Trudeau. Following this experience with the Woogeyman, Phoebe came to a conclusion regarding her moral compass. Read more... )
