Comic book writers have killed Spider Man, Thor and now Archie is on the chopping block. We wouldn’t call ourselves comic book stans, but we all know what it’s like to lose a character we’re close to — and that’s why we’ll never forget these movie moments.
Ricky from “Boyz In The Hood”
We can still hear Cuba Gooding Jr. screaming “Ricky!” If you’re going to watch this clip you might want to have a tissue handy.
Bad hair can ruin a good movie. Well maybe that’s an overstatement but bad hair…or bad wigs, rather, can be so distracting that the sound of your laughter makes it impossible to hear the lines coming out of the actor’s mouths. And in some cases the hair looks so bad in the previews, it just might deter you from seeing the movie altogether. Here are some examples of what I’m talking about.
If you’re a creative type, there’s no way in the world you’re going to be madly in love with everything you’ve done. There are just some projects that you just won’t be proud of. This is certainly true for actors in Hollywood. Whether they hated their particular role in the film or some of the behind the scenes stuff, they just didn’t rock with it. And in these cases, made sure to express their distaste. See who and which movies I’m talking about on the following pages.
When you’re going through a breakup, sometimes you want to be sympathized with, sometimes you want some tough love, sometimes you want to be coddled, sometimes you want to be reminded there is so much more to come. These amazing breakup scenes from 15 of the greatest breakup movies do all of these things.
Think Like a Man Too is a sequel that has the potential to bring in some serious dollars considering the first one did so well. It also has a soundtrack generating a ton of buzz when you consider Mary J. Blige did all of the songs. It should be good which is one of the main reasons why studio execs work hard to create something moviegoers want to hear. Take a look at 10 of the greatest movie soundtracks. There plenty to choose from. Do you have a favorite?
By now we know you’ve heard about the new Whitney Houston movie in the works on Lifetime and we’re sure, like us, you’re wracking your brain on who could play our beloved Whitney. Actresses and singers such as Rihanna, Tika Sumpter and even Paul Patton have been thrown into the mix of possible Whitneys! However, it isn’t just Whitney that needs to be cast, but also Bobby! Check out a list of actors who might could maybe play both — emphasis on might and maybe.
For years men have dominated the world of television and entertainment. Men have created the majority of TV shows, produced them and directed our favorite films. However despite their dominance, there have been a number women, particularly African American women, which are making major moves behind the scenes! There aren’t as many African American women as we would like, but still it’s a great shift to see! Let’s celebrate some of the black women taking over in television and movies.
Recently, Idrid Elba showed up to DJ a party dressed as Superman. He looked so good in the suit, fans immediately started petitioning Hollywood to make a new movie for their favorite hunk. We think that’s a great idea and here are more famous movie franchises we’d like to see in color.
Terry Crews as Rambo
Three 90-minute movies featuring Terry Crews in a headband and no shirt? Yes please.
They say timing is everything and if that is true, the timing is perfect for Lupita Nyong’o and the stars are aligning perfectly.
Nyong’o is right in the middle of awards season and with the big one right around the corner (the Academy Awards airs March 2nd), it is only right that we get to see a new film co-starring everyone’s current favorite girl.
In the new movie Non-Stop Nyong’o co-stars alongside Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore as a flight attendant on an international flight that is being highjacked. Yes, this is another one of Neeson’s action thrillers (he’s found his lane since Taken and hasn’t slowed down since) and while we don’t hear much from Nyong’o in this clip, she’s in quite a few scenes. We wonder if she could be one of the highjackers since they don’t show her talking much in this trailer.
I love that she still has her short hair cut for this role. Anyway, check out the trailer for Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and our girl, Lupita Nyong’o!
Will you check out Non-Stop when it lands into theaters on February 21st?
