After that was brought up, from what I've read either the Kateri account on Kinja was deleted by the user, or they changed their username. The same twitter user who found the Kinja account also presented more info on the alleged author. Again, not verified, but the twitter thread below is pretty interesting (click on the time/date to bring up the whole thread with replies):

this is from a while ago but the twitter thread by an account named "xwondergal" who says in her bio gal gadot is a real-life wonder woman and equates pro-palestinian activism with anti-semitism isn't any better evidence than an anonymous medium post

Yeah, I think it's more a strike against Williams' agent for not negotiating reshoot pay after Wahlberg's did tbh. Wahlberg himself probably wasn't all that involved in it. If it's lovely it's not entirely on him.

But he's donating the money anyway so who gives a gently caress.

they have the same agent

I really don't trust Michael Haneke on this subject in the slightest. I know this is subjective, but I feel like his films are deeply suffused with a particular sort of misogynistic subtext that's a bit more subtle and intellectually-based than most of the misogyny one sees in American films, say. Mostly I'm speaking in reference to The Hunt, which is actually a movie that I do like on some level, but is kind of like... Well...

Actually, the film is really quite apropos to this discussion, and in my opinion expatiates how Haneke views accusations of sexual improprieties against a respectable everyman in the community. The most terrifying point he makes (I thought) was that he does not really seem to feel that it *matters* whether the accuser is actually telling the truth, because (Haneke posits) the man in question suffers a great deal of injustice regardless, and people accused of sexual crimes (especially against children) will be ostracized and be ruined forever even if the accusation is false and proven false. It's a troubling hypothesis he makes, because there is of course a degree of truth there, but he is so consumed with the plight of the poor innocent white man that the film doesn't even really allow for characters other than the white men to have a legitimate emotional reality - instead, the women are more like conspiring antagonists in the film.

Anyway, I'll shut up. My only point is that after seeing that film I cannot help but scoff at anything Haneke could possibly say on this subject.

you buried the lede here: michael haneke has been making films under the pseudonym "thomas vinterberg!"

Rose Tico has the wisdom of the Buddha.

“That’s how we’ll win,” she tells Finn in The Last Jedi. “Not fighting what we hate, saving what we love.”

Those words echo the Buddha’s in The Dhammapada:

“Hatreds never cease through hatred in this world; through love alone they cease. This is an eternal law.”

Eternal as in, it’s also true in a galaxy far, far away.

Reminder, if you can’t appreciate great things accomplished by lovely people:

John Lennon beat his kids
MLK Jr. abused his wife
Ghandi was almost certainly a pedophile

The point is not to forgive these people for their crimes, the point is that these people made amazing things happen in our world while also being deeply flawed and human.

Ignoring the brilliant works of Terry Gilliam from 30 years ago because of his bad opinions today doesn’t hurt him at all, just like how not listening to a Beatles record today doesn’t hurt John Lennon at all, it just deprives you of his music.

That said, you can’t separate the art from the artist because it’s their views and personality that shape their art and inform it, so in all likelihood we have their work not in spite of, but because of the way their terrible attitudes shaped their own worldview into something people could resonate with and appreciate.

But no, go ahead, you’re really showing Terry Gilliam who is boss by not watching 12 Monkeys (while posting about it on a computer made with precious metals mined by orphans from Africa). If you want to displace your ethics that badly, well, you can start by moving into the woods and finding a cave to sleep in. Taking your stand against Hollywood and all its injustices against rich Hollywood actors feels great and is way easier to than confronting identical issues of exploitation that might affect you personally, like your clothes and personal electronics all being made by child slaves in sweatshops.

Brazil sucks though, that’s no big loss, but Fear & Loathing owns bones and basically everyone from that movie is a confirmed wife-beating scumbag or generally gross person, it’s still probably my most watched film of all time by a truly hilarious margin.

This literally has nothing to do with sexual assault; dude's just done working with Nickelodeon. Good for him; hope he enjoys his retirement (or whatever other project he's moving onto!). Please don't conflate cases where we have actual accusers and details of incidents with cases that are just salacious internet mobs driven by hate. If Dan Schneider were a creep, we would have found out about it a long time ago; he's an extremely important media figure. Nickelodeon isn't stupid, and Paramount is no Weinstein company. That said, if anything actually bad comes out about Dan I will eat my words on this. (It's not going to; he's fine.)

There's a really good part in the behind-the-scenes of Netflix's W/ Bob & David in the writer's room. Cross has a sketch idea about a kid who dies and comes back and writes a book about going to heaven. Cross seems more focused on talking about Jesus having a boyfriend and Odenkirk rightfully steers it to the funnier idea of everyone (Hitler, John Wayne Gacy) being allowed in Heaven.

that part stuck with me, too. odenkirk seems like a really great guy (knock wood) and the way he steered the sketch back to something that was actually funny instead of just shocking (and correctly criticizing cross' idea on those grounds) tells you a lot about their relative instincts and talent

I loved La Vie D'Adele, particularly for it's sex scenes and nudity, but loving hell, this indeed isn't that surprising given that the director claimed to have shot an additional 10 hours of unused footage of the actresses going at it for his personal fap collection.

the movie is good in spite of those scenes not because of them imo. you could cut out 20 minutes no problem and end up with a better movie

Nah. Those scenes may be male gazey AF, but they really portray sex in such passion that it helps establish the strong bond between the two.

i think if actual lesbians get weirded out by a lesbian sex scene in a movie it's fair to say it could have been done better.

I can give you a summary. The story is that, at some point, soon after he started making it, he was offered a corporate christmas party gig. He doesn't say how much he's getting paid, but he says it's obscene for an hour long gig. He shows up, comes out on stage, and everyone is already absolutely shitfaced. He starts a joke, one of his famous ones, and everyone starts howling with laughter.

He says that, in that moment, he realised that if he was going to improve as a comic from there, it would have to come from him, since he'd never bomb in front of an audience again, he'd have to go out of his way to find a hostile audience or someone who wasn't already completely on board with him. And since that's really hard, most comedians who make it even a little bit stop developing there. The George Carlins of the industry are rare. Whatever you think of his material, the fact that he wrote a new, full hour of it every time he toured is pretty loving impressive. I don't think it's a coincidence that a lot of Oswalt's best bits (like the magic comedian bit) are tales of his time on the outskirts of the industry.

he used this in one of his sets but made it about a casino gig instead.

between that and his weak-rear end response when asked about mercury's sexuality, malek kind of sounds like a coward

i think the guy who a few years ago was the third male lead in a video game might have justifiable career concerns. he should have known better, but still.

e: minor note, producers are the ones who get best picture oscars and since singer didn't produce and didn't get nominated for director he has no way of winning an award. bohemian rhapsody has a snowball's chance of winning anyway and was utter trash with the exception of malek's performance, but worth assuaging those concerns.
