when its your daughter it doesn't matter how many of your peers are being complete loving pricks about it, you're gonna speak out.

which, good. in all honesty, i imagine that most of the great horror directors/writers are actually fairly well-adjusted people (by hollywood standards). Carpenter seems like a cool old dude who smokes weed and plays video games, Stephen King is a fairly normal guy (now), I don't think I've ever heard negative stories about Wes Craven, Travis Barker or George Romero.

I'm 2 degrees of separation away from a lot of people in horror because of work I've done in the local film and TV community, so I have mutual friends on Facebook with people like Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, and Rob Zombie (the most famous person I personally have on Facebook is J. Larose because I've worked on two projects with him, and his daughter went to my high school and is friends with my brother). Overall they're mostly regular dudes apart from that tinge of weirdness you need to have to be a middle aged man in the horror community.

I feel like Dowd could've mentioned some of this in the article...

According to Tarantino's interview, he was supposed to participate in the interview but Dowd never got back to him and every other man involved lawyered up to avoid being mentioned by name, leaving him and Harvey Weinstein the only ones actually named in it.

Also looks like Dowd tried to create her own narrative (QT stating that Uma didn't even mention the spitting thing to her, Dowd got it from somebody else).

In general, Dowd tries to create a narrative that I don't think Uma quite wanted. The way Tarantino tells it, they had been initially working together on getting the story out about the crash, her interactions with Weinstein,
and how they intersected (including finding the footage of the crash together so she could publicize it). The choking and spitting weren't part of the story she provided at all, and were inserted by Dowd to create the impression that Tarantino is a lunatic getting off on hurting women.

Speaking as someone who's worked on film and TV for 6 years, I believe Tarantino when he explains some of the story behind the crash. As director, he wouldn't have been personally responsible for the condition of the car and the negligence would lie in the people who converted it to an automatic and provided it to the set. A random teamster who had suspicions about the vehicle should have been talking to them, not slipping rumors to the actress.

I do think a consideration was, KB was easily the most stunt-heavy project he'd done up until that point. It's possible the logistical complexity of that contributed to a breakdown in communication. Since then his stuff has featured some more elaborate setpieces (Death Proof most prominently) and there haven't been reports of recklessness or unnecessary endangerment so I think whatever lesson he did need to learn, he has.

There was definitely some recklessness with a guitar on Kurt Russell's part recently...

When it comes to a collaborative effort like a film, I'm also loathe to try and erase it from history or retroactively condemn it because it's not a sole creation by one person. Roman Polanski was one of (according to IMDB) 41 actors and 84 crew members who put the film together. As terrible as he is, I'm sure the rest of the 125 people who worked on the film didn't assist him in his raping and deserve credit and recognition for their own contributions.

Tarantino is also exactly the kind of person discussed up thread: his fetishes so transparently influence his film-making, but he has created some masterpieces of cinema, so what can you do but accept maybe we’re all kind of pervs.

The fact there aren’t a littany of accusations leveled at him is pretty surprising but extremely welcome, I looooove his movies

I'm pretty confident at this point that as weird as Tarantino is, he's not actually abusing anyone. With the litany of Hollywood people being revealed as serial rapists, you know it would have already come out if Tarantino was one of them.

I think he's just a weirdo pervert, but still has morals. And he does have legitimate reasons for doing things like personally choking or spitting on actresses that I'm pretty sure aren't just him living out fantasies.

On that note, Diane Kruger issues something to say that her name has been brought up a lot with regards to Tarantino and that she never once felt uncomfortable or forced in any way and felt as though she had been treated with complete respect.

Anyway, in much sadder news, Rose McGowan's former agent killed herself and her family put out a fairly scathing statement. Neither Weinstein or McGowan herself comes out well in this. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/n...er_breakingnews

It seems that she was caught in some crossfire (And if the family are to be believed, McGowan's lies) and sadly it took a toll.

Rose McGowan's case is a really awkward one from me, because on the one hand she's one of Harvey Weinstein's personal victims and he's continuing to try and ruin her life, but on the other hand she seems to also be kind of a lunatic herself and keeps torpedoing her own cause.

Rose McGowan is completely unhinged and I'm ready to see her either completely trash a dead person for not doing more or some bullshit, or she'll prop her up as a martyr to the bald lady gone crazy cause. There's no way she handles this well after screaming back and forth at a trans woman in Barnes and Noble.

I don't think she has any coming back from that. Hecklers aren't exactly an uncommon occurrence, but she flew off the handle and turned it into a giant temper tantrum and profanity-laced rant against a woman who's part of a heavily discriminated class. This might be a Michael Richards moment for her.

The idiot in the White House weighing in is especially weird considering he has been involved in a pretty high profile rape accusation case that he took out full page ads in a newspaper to support their executions and still seems to think they are guilty despite DNA evidence clearing them.

It's a personal thing for him because he personally has faced countless accusations that keep cropping up in the media. It's beneficial for him to try and downplay rape culture because he's directly involved in it.

I don't think his motive is any deeper than that. Trump is the apotheosis of someone existing and making decisions based entirely on shallow surface impulses without deeper meaning.

The only one of the Harry Potter kids that I think had any problems was the one who played Crabbe. He got booted from the last film and had his death scene switched to Goyle because he got arrested for pot possession. After that, he got arrested and jailed again for being caught looting and throwing Molotovs during the London riots. I don't think he ever did any acting outside of Harry Potter.

Everyone else came out well-adjusted and expanding their careers. I think other than Radcliffe, Tom Felton and Emma Watson have the strongest careers out of the main cast. Evanna Lynch actually played Luna in one performance of the last Very Potter Musical.

School uniforms for public schools in my country are made in a way to look as the most uninteresting thing ever and that can be bought by anyone, anywhere . Like white shirt or polo, gray/darkblue skirt and there's always the rule that the lenght most be under the knee. SADLY, men over here will always harass you in the street no matter what you are wearing. You could be the fattest older woman wearing jeans and a huge t-shirt and some guy will whistle and say something sexual. You could be 10 and be dressed just like a kid, and some creep will stare at you like a steak (This did happen to me when I was in elementary school. Made my mother super angry).

It's like they got so use to that behaviour that the moment they see anything with long hair or boobs they have to say something, stare at, make sexual advances,etc.

It's almost like the problem isn't that kids need to have their dress policed, but that men are raised in ways that encourage them to be creeps.

I should clarify that what he did was still lovely. I’m just saying there’s levels between “perfect saint” and “chronic rapist.” Robin Williams supposedly did crap like that to everyone, male and female. I don’t think he had any deeper motivation than being a goofball making dirty jokes.

I don’t think we’re quite at “The Cosby Show is now tainted” with Robin Williams. If something new and horrifying comes out about him, sure. Retroactively hate him. But you can’t really equate a guy who hosed with men and women as a dirty joke with a serial date rapist who drugged dozens of women.

Apparently he was drunk on a train and got into an argument with another passenger, which resulted in him being kicked off, so he got mad and made a fake bomb threat. But on a different train.

Either he couldn't bear actually stopping the real train, or he was so drunk that he forgot which train he was reporting on.

I do think there's been some instances where auditioning someone at your house hasn't been a ploy, like when filmmakers want to cast their friends and just invite them over for a quick audition just to make sure.

How so? How is your decision on having sex with someone impacted by a police operation you have no awareness of?

Not to mention that's it's probably not even an abuse of power on a professional level. Going undercover probably involves relationships, drugs and committing crimes, and so the power structures would be facilitating, not restricting this.

If we as a society decide that it's super creepy to have undercover cops banging prime suspects then locking them up, and then change their codes of conduct, and then a cop does it anyway while still getting intelligence on the suspect, that would be an abuse of a power structure. But I'm guessing that's not the case here.

Imagine if someone turned off the lights and switched out your husband with his brother, causing you to unknowingly have sex with someone you didn't want to. You consented, but only because of deception. You weren't even aware that you were being deceived (thanks to their unusually similar penises), but only found out later that you were tricked.

Now imagine that they kept the lights on, and the thing they lied about is their identity. In fact, they used their government-granted power to craft a false identity that you would have sex with. You consented, but only because you were tricked into thinking the circumstances and identity of your partner were different.

How should the second one be completely legal if the first one isn't?
