Tuesday Tidbits..

Terrance "Tom" Howard speaks:

Cameras provided a glimpse of Terrence Howard applauding when Three 6 Mafia took home an Oscar at the Academy Awards, but he was just fronting for cameras and he wasn’t too happy with the Memphis-bred crew’s performance.“Just seeing the way they performed, it kind of broke my heart though,” Howard conceded to AOL Black Voices, weeks after Three 6 performed “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp,” from the same Hustle & Flow movie he starred in. “Not the way Three 6 Mafia did it, but everything I tried to escape in my portrayal of that role (wtf?), it seems that they went right to the stereotype that I wanted to assassinate. The people who had choreographed it apparently hadn’t seen the film.”Howard told AOL Black Voices that he was surprised Three 6 was able to beat out its competition for the Oscar.“It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp,” Howard laughed. “No honestly, I was very surprised. I was extremely surprised! I thought ‘In the Deep’ would win from Crash.” courtesy of Playahata.com

Supa on Flic Watch: V for Vendetta
Starring: Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Rea, Stephen Fry, John Hurt

Directed by James McTeigue

Produced by Joel Silver, Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski

Written by: Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski (screenplay) Dave Gibbons (II) and Alan Moore (Source Material from graphic novel: "'V' is for Vendetta")

Distributed by Warner Bros.

Release Date: March 17th, 2006

Synopsis: Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself--and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.

At least inspired by the general source material, the story line is set in approximately 2018 in an Orwellian and totalitarian Britain, which terrorizes its’ citizens, criminalizes descent, and routinely lies to it’s people via TV news programs. In the Wachowski update, England is an ultra-religious, Islam-Hating, fear-mongering, gay-bashing, police state ruled by Chancellor Sutler (John Hurt) who convinces the people to relinquish their personal freedoms in exchange for being protected from biological weapons of mass destruction and terrorism - any of this sound at least a little familiar? The news station has its own Bill O'Reilly/Shawn Hannity/Rush Limbaugh figure in the blowhard Prothero, and chancellor Sutler has somewhat of a Dick Cheney in the character known only as Creedy. As for the U.S., the “news” reports that the United States is “the world’s largest leper colony” as it falling apart in the midst of a 2nd civil war; Prothero the only pundit who seems to matter, attributes Britain not (yet) having suffered the same fate to their faith in “God”.

In 2018 Britain it seems you’re as likely to get assaulted by the government police, as you are to be helped by them, which is where our story’s “hero”, V (Hugo Weaving a.k.a. “Agent Smith” from Matrix fame), enters. V rescues Evey (Natalie Portman) from sexual assault (and who knows what else) by government police, then becomes linked to V’s massive acts of property destruction, and a government target herself. She eventually becomes V’s closest confidante and sidekick but not without some seemingly depraved manipulation on the part of V....click here for full review.

And finally....on to some fluff. Some mini-stars..

Supa said...

Er'body - Cocoa was FURST!!! lol

Miz JJ said...

Little B doesn't even look black...she's a cutie, but hardly a mini B.

Terrence Howard needs to sit down and shut the hell up. You made a movie about being a pimp you may think it was about going after your dreams, but you still pimped out women to do that. Man, fame is the worst thing that ever happened to his ass.

The more I hear about that U.T., it pisses me off more and more. It never fails, my mouth drops everytime I hear him speak.

The babies are sooo cute. I'm amazed at how close they actually resemble the grownups.

And wassup with the obsession of being first? LOL

Supa said...

It's so amazing. I actually liked him during "The Best Man" era...

ProfessorGQ said...

Terrence just speaking out just to get some media attention...he didn't even bother to say anything until at least a week after the Oscars...he's getting on my nerves like Jamie Foxx.

Do we have to put Terenece Howard back in a time machine to the TV Show Sparks.

He is irking my nerves.

PS: I'm glad somebody said something else about Jamie Foxx getting on their nerves, too. I have his CD and I love him, but I will Wanda his a$$ back to In living color, too!

Shawn said...

I loathe Terrance Howard, "Uncle Ruckerish" azz. He needs a tall glass of STFU on the rocks. He's not too embarrass to make Hustle and Flow 2 is he?
