Why ‘Three Billboards’ Director Will Write More Lead Roles for Women

Sometimes it can feel like we’re going backwards when it comes to the representation of women in cinema. Often seen through the male gaze as two-dimensional characters, the lack of fully rounded women characters on screen can be frustrating. And when you watch a film like Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, it’s a stark reminder of how important it is to see strong female leads like the film’s protagonist, Mildred, on the big screen.

Not only is the character extremely well written, but she’s brought to life by the remarkable talents of Frances McDormand. And while McDormand is definitely one of a kind, there are a bunch of über-talented women in the industry that rarely get the chance to flex their acting chops like this because of underwritten roles – or a lack of decent roles full stop.

McDonagh, who wrote and directed the acclaimed In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, spoke to FANDOM about why his experience on Three Billboards has inspired him to write more leads for women.

“I wanted to write a really strong female lead, and that was Frances McDormand — and it was written for her actually — as a really strong mother who goes to war with a bunch of cops who she feels aren’t doing enough to solve the crime of the murder of her daughter a year ago,” he says.


Three Billboards-Frances McDormand
Frances McDormand as Mildred in front of one of the billboards she’s responsible for.

Whether McDonagh is able to explain fully why he felt compelled to write the character of Mildred in the first place isn’t patently clear. Perhaps it is in response to the dearth of strong female leads out there, wittingly or unwittingly. He does reveal that it was a real-life incident 20 years ago that sparked her story. In the film, Mildred’s ‘war’ starts with a provocative message she splashes across three billboards positioned on the side of a road outside the small fictional Missouri town, Ebbing.

“The idea behind the billboards came to me… I saw something not dissimilar when I was on a bus journey through America about 20 years ago, and it just kind of flashed by in the corner of my eye, but it was something as angry and as painful as what we see on the billboards in the early scenes,” says McDonagh. “So it was putting those two together, deciding a mother did something like that, it allowed… that character just popped. When you think that someone could be as strong but in as much pain to do that, you’ve got her already. And you just add Frances’s voice to that, and it’s kind of a fun journey to follow her on.”

Writing Mildred Was ‘Outrageous and Joyful’

Frances McDormand stars, with Peter Dinklage in a supporting role.

Interestingly, conceiving and developing Mildred seemed to unlock a creative freedom within McDonagh that allowed him to write a character and film that are eliciting plenty of awards chatter.

So how did he approach writing his first female lead?

“No differently to writing a male lead really,” he begins. “My early plays did have quite strong women characters and I hadn’t really done that in the first two films I made. But weirdly, because she’s not just the female lead she’s such a strong and outrageous and provocative one, you find there’s a joy in writing her. Because you don’t know what she’s going to do from scene to scene. The audience doesn’t either, especially because you don’t, but … I think I’ll keep doing it because it’s outrageous and joyful.”

So there you are. We can all look forward to more characters like the funny, tough and unpredictable Mildred from the mind of Martin McDonagh. Let’s hope others follow suit.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also stars Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Caleb Landry Jones, Peter Dinklage and Abbie Cornish. The film hits screens in the US on November 10 and in the UK on January 12. In the meantime, here’s the official synopsis for the darkly comic drama:

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon — an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence — gets involved, the battle is only exacerbated.

45 Great Moments in Black Business – No. 27: Don Barden’s $149 Million Acquisition of Three Vegas Casinos

This year, BLACK ENTERPRISE celebrates the 4th anniversary of its roster of the nation’s largest black-owned businesses—The BE 100s. To commemorate the significance of this collective’s widespread impact on black business and economic development as well as American industry over four decades, we have presented 45 milestones moments. As part of this tribute, we continue our yearlong countdown.  

Today we reveal No. 27 in the web series “Great Moments in Black Business.” 

2002: With the acquisition of three Fitzgeralds casinos for $ 149 million, Don Barden becomes the first African American to wholly own a casino in the nation’s gambling capital.

Rising from meager beginnings to become a self-made multimillionaire African American entrepreneur, the late Don Barden was a trailblazer in America’s gaming industry.

First-Ever Black Vegas Casino Operator

 

Barden made history when one of his companies acquired three Fitzgeralds casinos for $ 149 million, making him the first black to own casino operations in Las Vegas. The transaction placed his gaming enterprise in the industry’s largest U.S. market and at the same time, broke barriers within the sector.

Barden added to his empire—he had already owned casinos in Gary, Indiana; Tunica, Mississippi; and Black Hawk, Colorado—by purchasing the Fitzgeralds properties from bankruptcy court. In fact, Barden used $ 14 million of his own money and raised $ 150 million from 40 institutional investors to seal the deal and upgrade operations.

 

The daring entrepreneur’s big gamble paid off.  It bumped revenues of Barden Cos. Inc., placing it among the top 25 of BE Industrial/Service Companies in the early 2000s. Observers hailed Barden’s move as a major victory in bringing much-needed diversity to the industry. “It has the same ramification [for the Las Vegas gaming industry] that Jackie Robinson had to baseball,” Gene Collins, president of the Las Vegas chapter of the NAACP told the Las Vegas Sun at the time.” It opens all sorts of opportunities for African Americans because someone has to be first.”

First African American to Build an Urban-Based Cable TV Company

 

Making history was nothing new for Barden. In addition to being the first African American to own a casino corporation outright, he beat the odds by controlling multimillion-dollar companies in other industries that locked out blacks from ownership participation. As such, he would become the first black businessman to build a cable TV system for urban markets as well as a major player in commercial estate development over the course of his 40-year career.

He shared his deal-making philosophy in the BLACK ENTERPRISE book, Lessons From The Top: “I have learned to look for businesses that make money while I sleep. I like to acquire any business that doesn’t require an exorbitant amount of time and capital to turn it around. Yet, I want to be able to expand the core businesses. I have been able to do that with real estate, cable, and gaming. If you find viable businesses with solid management, you are not drained by the day-to-day operations. You can scope out other opportunities.”

The ninth of 13 children raised in Inkster, Michigan, he attended Central State University in Ohio with the goal of pursuing a legal career. But he ultimately turned to entrepreneurship. His first venture was a record store that he opened in Lorain, Ohio, at the age of 21 with $ 500 in savings. From there, he launched several businesses, including a real estate development firm, a nightclub, and a weekly newspaper, The Lorain County Times, in Lorain. He was also Lorain’s first elected black city council member.

 

(Barden featured in Black Enterprise magazine, May 1998)

 

By 1981, Barden bought an interest in a cable television station in Lorain and formed Barden Communications Inc. He expanded his cable system to include communities in his hometown of Inkster and the Detroit metro area, growing gross revenues from $ 600,000 to $ 91.2 million in a decade. By 1992, BCI earned the No. 5 position on the BE INDUSTRIAL/SERVICE 100 and BE 100s Company of the Year honors—for the first time. By 1994, he sold the company to Comcast Cable in 1994 for more than $ 100 million.

Two years later, he ventured into the casino gaming industry when he acquired and operated the Majestic Star Casino, a riverboat casino in Gary, Indiana. After an unsuccessful bid to buy a casino in Detroit, he acquired the Fitzgeralds properties. In 2003, BLACK ENTERPRISE named Barden Cos. as Company of the Year—the only entrepreneur to receive such recognition in two different industries within a 10-year span.

But not all of Barden’s ventures were proven winners. In 2009, the Majestic Star Casino was forced to file for bankruptcy protection.

Such setbacks, however, did not keep BLACK ENTERPRISE from heralding his myriad accomplishments. As part of its 40th-anniversary celebration in 2010—a year before Barden’s untimely death due to complications from lung cancer—it ranked him No. 21 on the roster of “Titans: The 40 Most Powerful African Americans in Business.” That same year, he also received the A.G. Gaston Lifetime Achievement Award, BE‘s top honor for business excellence. Barden left a legacy for being one of the most honored and respected black business leaders of his generation, and mentor to several generations of black professionals and entrepreneurs.

Geordie Shore in chaos as three of the cast fail to turn up for filming after big-money pay row

FILMING for the next series of Geordie Shore has been thrown into chaos as cast members refused to go into the house following a furious row over pay.

While loyal stars including Abbie Holborn and Chloe Ferry all arrived in Newcastle yesterday ready to go into the house, some of their co-stars weren’t so eager.

Rex Features
Rex Features

Insiders tell The Sun Online Marnie Simpson, Sophie Kasaei and Nathan Henry were still wrangling over contracts just hours before they were supposed to start – while there is still confusion over whether Aaron Chalmers or Marty McKenna will even be involved in filming.

A source said: “The cast were all supposed to go back into the house and into lockdown yesterday, but at the very last minute producers cancelled.

“Some of the cast were seething about it. They’re all busy people and have other contractual agreements so the show has to run to schedule for them.

“There are still a couple of people rowing about pay and refusing to budge until the contracts are agreed to their terms. It’s a nightmare.

“They have no idea when they’re going to be starting filming again but they’ve been promised it will be imminent.”

Insiders also revealed the cast were also confused about who would even been going into the house.

Rex Features

The Sun Online revealed Gaz Beadle had quit the show after finding out he was going to become a father for the first time.

He will return to the show to say goodbye but will not be filming for the whole duration of this series.

Meanwhile, Marty McKenna sensationally revealed he’d been sacked by MTV last month – and sources tell us no one knows if he’s actually coming back or not.


Rex Features
Rex Features

The Sun Online contacted MTV who had no comment to make on why filming had been cancelled.

This isn’t the first hurdle that’s hit Geordie Shore bosses in recent weeks.

Just days ago The Sun Online the full extent of the on-going pay row, with filming having already pushed back for a whole week.

Rex Features

A source said: “Many of the shows biggest stars have issues with terms in their agreement with the programme makers which has taken up time.

“While everyone has now signed for the new series several of its key cast were refusing to agree terms.”

Let’s hope MTV can give them what they want…else it could be curtains for Geordie Shore.

Mahershala Ali Will Star in Season Three of True Detective

Big True Detective news: Season 3 is officially happening, with HBO finally greenlighting a new round. Plus, after months of secrecy, there are all sorts of new details.

First: After a season spent in Los Angeles, the show is returning to its rural season 1 roots. The next round, starring a previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), will be set in the Ozarks. Ali will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.

Also, we have a logline: “The next installment of True Detective tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.”

Also-also: Some behind-the-scenes details. Original showrunner Nic Pizzolatto will be the sole writer of the series (with the exception of episode 4, which he co-wrote with David Milch, who was brought on board to help Pizzolatto shape the season). Pizzolatto will direct with Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room), who is a newcomer to the franchise.

“I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy,” Pizzolatto said in a statement. “I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story.”

True Detective season 3’s setting can’t help bring to mind that another recent premium television crime drama used the same location — Netflix’s Ozark.

There is no episode count or premiere date yet.

How a couple with three kids paid off $55K of debt in 2 years

Becoming debt-free isn’t easy, especially when you’ve got a family to raise. The thing is, it’s super easy to accumulate debt. After all, you need that big SUV once you bring home your newest bundle of joy and you need that in-store financing offer to purchase all the furniture to fill up that new home.

Oh, and let’s not forget that you need to take out those student loans in order to get your dream job so you can afford to provide for your family.

Our story is no different from most. Even though we were able to avoid going into debt to afford our wedding ceremony in 2009, that didn’t stop us from accumulating other debt.

Read more: How to create and stick to a budget that works for you

How we tackled $ 55,000 of debt in 2 years

Our grand total of consumer debt was $ 55,365 in March of 2013 — and in comparison to most of the late twenty-year-olds we knew, we were doing really well financially.

The only problem was that we were a one-income family, pregnant with our second child. After running the numbers, I realized that we weren’t going to be able to afford for me to continue staying home with our children with the current amount of debt payments we had every month.

After a lot of late-night discussions, my husband and I finally decided that we were done with relying on debt — and that the only way to keep our dream life a reality was to get aggressive in paying off all the money we owed.

In the months that followed, we managed to pay off two of our four debts — the two credit cards — but we still owed more than $ 30,000 when we welcomed our second child into the world.

And not going to lie, it was a struggle after he was born. Even though we had more money in our budget since we had paid off two debts, we only had a few hundred dollars in our savings account after a medical emergency drained the rest of our funds

Read more: Debt 101: Everything from dangers to avoid to the best ways to pay it off

Making tough choices

This resulted in us living a completely different lifestyle than we pictured.

I had to make our own bread, and we ate more rice, beans, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches than I care to remember. We had to make some serious changes and sacrifices — like me walking dogs while hugely pregnant in the sweltering heat of Georgia summers. My husband had to work every side job he could find — everything from changing out light bulbs to building cabinets.

For months after our second child was born, I tried in vain to figure out a way to pay off our Tahoe loan (which stood right at $ 18,000) as quickly as possible, but I finally had to admit defeat in March of 2014.

Through our various side hustles, and by cashing out a few of my childhood savings bonds, we finally had enough money set aside to pay for a car in cash.

Read more: 33 ways to make extra cash each month

The last payment

Even though getting rid of our fully-loaded and super nice Tahoe for a well-used Sequoia without all the bells and whistles was hard, it freed up more money in our budget than we could ever imagine.

And through even more hustling and throwing every extra penny we had at my student loans, we finally paid off the last of our $ 55,365 of debt in 2015 — just before our third child was born.

Making this happen wasn’t easy, and I wish I could tell you that there was some magical checklist we followed to accomplish what at times seemed impossible.

The truth is, it took a huge commitment to get out of debt — but it was absolutely worth it.

If you want to become debt-free, here are a few things you will absolutely have to do:

  1. Agree to stop using debt: You will literally never become debt-free if you keep racking up new debt. 
  2. Make a plan: It doesn’t matter if you decide to follow the debt snowball method or the debt avalanche method. Just pick one and make a plan to follow it. 
  3. Figure out WHY: Write down why you want to become debt-free, so when the hard sacrifices are required, you’ll remember why you’re doing this. 
  4. Track your progress: This will not only keep you motivated but also help keep you organized. 
  5. Give grace: It’s not easy becoming debt-free — so remember to give yourself grace if things move slower than expected or mistakes are made. Just pick up where you left off and keep going!

Three years later, 5 lives changed after Ferguson

FERGUSON — A partially burned American flag lies on the street near the spot where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri in 2015. Photo by REUTERS/Rick Wilking

Sierra Smith had heard gunshots in the neighborhood before, but never this close.

The longtime Ferguson, Missouri, resident was on her way to a nearby park with her two children when they heard the first shot. At first, she thought it was a firecracker, but it was louder than that. It echoed.

Smith ran with her son and daughter, then 6 and 4, to her cousin’s apartment nearby.

Growing up, Smith was taught to hit the floor and stay there until the gunshots stopped or the sirens began. When the noise stopped, she made her way back outside.

There, just outside the complex on Canfield Drive, Smith saw a police officer, gun still in hand, ordering people onto the sidewalk.

And then she saw him: “Mike Mike,” a teen from the neighborhood who had played in her apartment, face down on the asphalt.

There was no police tape yet to isolate the crime scene, and no sirens in the distance.

*****

When Ferguson authorities arrived at the scene of the Aug. 9, 2014, shooting, they found Michael Brown’s belongings scattered around a police SUV: a red St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap, two bracelets and a pair of Nike sandals. Closer to Brown’s body, they found most of the casings from the 12 bullets Officer Darren Wilson had fired.

“State violence is not new to black people. It’s just something was different about how Michael Brown was killed.”

It wasn’t until 4:37 p.m. that day — more than 4.5 hours after Smith heard the gunfire – that medical workers finally transported the body of the 18-year-old black teenager to a morgue. As more people in the neighborhood gathered at the police tape, outrage grew at the sight of Brown’s body, uncovered and exposed in the summer heat.

Police eventually laid a white sheet over the body, but Brown’s feet stuck out. Blood trickled from the other end, running along the yellow lines of the two-way road. The image was captured from various angles as bystanders uploaded pixelated cell phone videos and photos to social media. Before police could put up orange screens to further hide the body from view, the image was tweeted and then retweeted. It quickly drew national attention.

Antonio French, 39, first heard of the shooting from Twitter. The St. Louis Post Dispatch via Twitter said the incident had prompted a “mob reaction.”

“‘Mob’?” French tweeted back. “You could also use the word ‘community’.”

He drove to Ferguson to learn more. Once there, he started tweeting nearby West Florissant Avenue, a street near Canfield that would become the main site for protests and clashes between law enforcement in the weeks of unrest that followed.

The former St. Louis alderman, too, would become a constant presence at events related to Brown’s death, accumulating hundreds of Vine videos and thousands of tweets documenting the aftermath. French often tweeted about the Ferguson police’s “heavy-handed approach.”

French’s videos are among the images that have become inextricably linked to the city of Ferguson, a shorthand of sorts collectively for understanding the anger behind the escalating demonstrations: “Hands up, don’t shoot” chants, protesters facing frontline officers, the dogs, armored vehicles, the local QuikTrip burning.

“I think back to those early days of the protest when I stood side by side with so many other people,” said Clifton Kinnie, who lived a few miles from the spot where Brown was shot. “We stood against that injustice, and we were met with tear gas, we were met with rubber bullets.”

Kinnie, 17 at the time, had lost his mother to breast cancer a month prior. Already in a state of depression and anxiety, Kinnie came across the image of Brown’s body on Instagram.

“At first, I didn’t think it was a real image,” he said, but the visual compelled him to join the protests percolating on Canfield. “State violence is not new to black people. It’s just something was different about how Michael Brown was killed. It was very painful.”

That summer, Kinnie led a series of student protests and encouraged his peers to promote social justice in their communities.

The Ferguson protests would offer a model for other movements in the larger St. Louis area, elsewhere in Missouri, and in other cities in the nation like Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Cleveland, among others.

The outrage that fueled the protests was complicated, French said.

“You have thousands and thousands of people out there [protesting] for different reasons,” French said. But they all shared one major concern: accountability. “Ultimately, we never got it.”

*****

Social media accounts of the shooting’s immediate aftermath undersold the chaos police faced, said Thomas Jackson, the Ferguson police chief at the time of the shooting.

Jackson said several reported gunshots nearby upended the forensics team’s ability to thoroughly process the scene. “Each time that happened, it became an insecure scene,” furthering delaying the process, he said.

“And that’s not an excuse — that’s just — that’s what happened,” he added.

If he could change one thing in the initial hours after Brown was shot, it would be moving the body sooner, Jackson, 60, said. But Jackson, who’s lived in and around Ferguson since he was 10 years old, told the NewsHour that he was hamstrung by protocol; touching the body before the scene was properly processed could be considered police misconduct, he said.

“But it looked just awful — and I felt bad for the family that was there, but, at the time, there wasn’t an option for that,” he said, adding it was a “lose-lose situation.”

Months after Brown was killed, a grand jury in St. Louis County declined to indict Wilson in the teen’s death. Months after that announcement, the Department of Justice said it would not bring civil rights charges against the officer. At the same time, the DOJ released a scathing report that called for the Ferguson Police Department to overhaul its criminal justice system. DOJ sued the city in 2016 to force the reforms.

The report said Ferguson’s police force and court systems systematically violated the rights of African-Americans, who were disproportionately the target for traffic stops, arrests and expensive fines.

However, some Americans saw the federal government’s scrutiny of Ferguson’s police department as a move that undermined police officers and enabled criminal behavior. During his campaign for the presidency, Donald Trump tapped into the notion that the federal government failed to support law enforcement in the country, a concern that persists to this day. A July 2017 Harvard-Harris poll showed 62 percent of Americans feel that the public focus on law enforcement behavior has diminished how well police can do their jobs.

Once elected, President Trump changed how the DOJ approached the issue of police misconduct.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, now head of the same federal agency that issued these legal reform agreements with troubled police departments, has been critical of the police oversight that was pushed under former Obama.

“Every step I took and every decision I made that afternoon was by the book. I followed procedures and protocols designed to ensure the fairness and transparency of investigations. … And yet, nearly every one of those moves backfired in some way.”

“Since then, Ferguson has become an emblem of the tense relationship between law enforcement and the communities we serve, especially our minority communities,” Sessions said in a visit to St. Louis in March.

Sessions added that the bulk of law enforcement, in recent years, has been “unfairly maligned and blamed for the crimes and unacceptable deeds of a few in their ranks.”

Shortly after the DOJ report came out, Jackson stepped down as the Ferguson’s police chief. In his book, Jackson said he spent months on the “hot seat, the primary focus of a nation’s outrage.”

Jackson downplayed the idea of a disconnect between the Ferguson police department and the citizens it swore to protect, saying that many of his police officers were involved with the community before the shooting.

Not everyone agreed with that assessment.

“Jackson, in his mind, really feels like he was one of the good guys. He really felt like he was working in this largely African-American community,” French said. “And so, when he and the world learned of this strong resentment and frustration in the poor African-American community, — that is separate largely from the white community and the middle class black community — it caught them off guard,” he added.

Jackson did concede that the department was ill-equipped to handle the deluge of social media that documented every step the police took, especially in those first few hours after the shooting.

“Every step I took and every decision I made that afternoon was by the book. I followed procedures and protocols designed to ensure the fairness and transparency of investigations. I made the safety and security of the public my chief concern, as did every commander and officer at the scene,” Jackson said in the book. “And yet, nearly every one of those moves backfired in some way.”

*****

Now, three years later, Ferguson has seen some changes. The city council, once overwhelmingly white, is more diverse. Community activists have moved from demonstrations in the streets to becoming aldermans or representatives of the city.

Despite the Trump administration’s signals to change the federal government’s approach to police reforms agreements, known as consent decrees, Ferguson officials have said they’ll continue to work with the DOJ on improving their recruiting and hiring practices, and use-of-force guidelines, the Post-Dispatch reported.

The St. Louis Urban League also recently built a resource center where the neighborhood QuikTrip used to be. The convenience store was burned down by protesters days into the unrest that followed the shooting.

That type of “community empowerment” is a step in the right direction, but more must be done, said Clifton Kinnie, who has continued his activism at Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he is a rising junior and political science major. A community’s safety doesn’t hinge on better policing alone, the young activist said; it’s also about seeking political power, raising the minimum wage, Medicaid expansion, investments in schools and job training.

Kinnie said he continues to organize “so that [people of color are] no longer fighting to survive, but so we can actually have a chance to live in this country.”

Fifty years from now, people are going to see Ferguson as everything that’s wrong with America or they’re going to see Ferguson as the symbol for a great hope of what American can be, Kinnie said.

Despite all the national attention, Kinnie said, Brown’s story still gets overlooked. “He wasn’t a thug, he was a kid,” he said. “At the end of the day, he is what started this movement. He’s what’s most important.”

Brown’s parents did not speak at their son’s funeral, but did write letters that were read to thousands of mourners.

“The day you were born I just know God sent me a blessing and that was you,” Lesley McSpadden, Brown’s mother, wrote.

At his funeral, Brown’s casket was bookended by enlarged portraits of the teen wearing headphones. Red roses sat atop the casket. To the left of the flowers sat a St. Louis Cardinal baseball cap, black and red.

Usher to Be Sued by Three More People Who Claim He Failed to Warn Them of His Herpes Diagnosis

Weeks after it was revealed Usher reportedly paid a woman $ 1.1 million in 2012 to settle a lawsuit after she claimed to have contracted herpes from him, three more individuals are suing the singer alleging he failed to warm them of his STD diagnosis.

Attorney Lisa Bloom — who is representing Rob Kardashian‘s ex Blac Chyna in her revenge-porn case again the reality star — plans to file a lawsuit in California on Monday on behalf of the alleged victims.

While two of the accusers are named in the complaint as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” and are choosing to remain private, a third accuser will speak out at a press conference after the suit is filed.

According to court documents filed by the celebrity stylist whom Usher, 38, settled the suit with in 2012, the “Confessions” singer was allegedly diagnosed with herpes around 2009 or 2010.

RELATED VIDEO: Usher Allegedly Paid a Woman $ 1.1 Million After Infecting Her with Herpes: Report

The stylist accused the star — who married his current wife Grace Miguel in 2015 — of “consciously and purposefully” withholding his diagnosis from the woman and “continued to have unprotected sex” with her, according to papers obtained by Radar Online.

The woman was tested and diagnosed with herpes after suffering from vaginal sores, fevers and chills, according to the court papers.

California law states that it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD, and court papers showed the singer paid $ 2,754.40 of the victim’s medical bills in 2012. He eventually settled the case with the stylist on Dec. 28, 2012 for $ 1.1 million.

A representative for Usher didn’t return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

RHOA’s Kenya Moore Pulls Gun on Three Trespassers at Her Home: ‘I Have a Right to Protect Myself’

Kenya Moore pulled a gun on three trespassers who climbed a wall and entered her property over the weekend.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 45, revealed in two consecutive Instagram posts on Saturday that two men and one woman “climbed over a wall in order to circumvent my security gates” and proceeded to knock on her front door.

“$ 1000 REWARD if you can identify any of these 3 individuals of criminally trespassed on my property yesterday. These are the first screenshots but my security is pulling the footage from other cameras. They climbed over a wall in order to circumvent my security gates and wall being bricked,” she wrote in her first Instagram post, in which she shared a screenshot of the three trespassers walking side-by-side on her property.

“They were driving a white car. The female was recording on her phone the entire time. They told someone! Turn them in anonymously and if it leads to their arrest you will get $ 1000 each. It is never ok to violate anyone this way. It is not funny. Men showing up at your door is an immediate threat. Things could have ended badly and all 3 will be criminally prosecuted.  #nottoday #receipts #mooremanor,” the post continued.

In the second post, Moore admitted to fans and followers that she pulled her gun on the three trespassers by sharing a screenshot of herself with the weapon in hand.

“I have a right to feel safe in my home and to protect myself. I don’t care if I’m on TV. What if 3 strangers banged on your front door …2 of them being grown men wearing dark clothing knowing they could only get to you by jumping fences or trespassing onto other properties and mine? There are home invasions, robberies, rapist…What if your children or loved ones were threatened this way?” she wrote, and added, “Anyone who is bold enough to commit a crime, endanger themselves and others needs to be punished. Please help me identify these people. $ 1000 reward email mooremanor2016@gmail.com. #savage #YouDontWantThisWork.”

The Bravo personality also stated in an Instagram video following the scary ordeal that she intends to prosecute the trespassers.

“I’m pissed! 3 people knocked on my door a woman and 2 big grown men. They climbed the fence when they couldn’t get through my security gates,” she wrote. “They got what they came for I stay sitting on ready. if any crazy motherfuckers want to F with me u deserve what’s behind these doors. #myhammersstayready #criminaltrespass #theytriedit.”

A rep for Moore did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pharrell Opens Up About his Three Homes and Designing his New Fashion Flagship

Musician, producer, designer and recent deserter of a big red The Voice chair, Pharrell Williams, 43, is inarguably one of the most talented multi-hyphenates working. But when he chats with Architectural Digest, he reveals even a few more interests and talents: art and furniture collector, architecture buff and interiors junkie.

“I just picked up some Prouvè auditorium seats. I’m also looking at this Marc Newson bed and this TATI couch that my friends Domeau & Pérès make,” he tells AD of his recent high-end favorites, which will no doubt end up in one of his three stylish homes.

“Each has a different vibe and purpose,” he says of the properties. “The penthouse in Miami wasn’t a convenient set-up to raise a family. It fit the needs of a younger me.” Pharrell has a son, Rocket, with his wife, Helen Lasichanh, and the couple are expecting their second child.

“The house in L.A. gives us more space, but I miss the ocean,” he says. His third residence is located in his home town of Virginia Beach. “Nothing beats looking out the window and seeing turquoise ocean water. My house in Virginia Beach is right on the water.”

Pharrell has also just completed another ambitious design project: creating a flagship store for his brand Billionaire Boys Club in downtown Manhattan. He teamed up with New York architecture firm, Snarkitecture, to conceptualize the space. “The store is very simple. We wanted to give the product room to shine, so Snarkitecture basically whitewashed everything. We carry some colorful stuff so really pop in the space once they get placed on the fixtures.”

He applies this thoughtfulness to everything he has a hand in, including his impressive art collection: “I don’t buy anything that’s not meaningful.

See Gigi Hadid’s First Designs for Tommy Hilfiger (and Three More Collabs You Can’t Miss!)

If you’re starting to compile your fall shopping list, there are some cool new collaborations happening in the style sphere you’re going to want to check out. Tommy Hilfiger’s collaboration with Gigi Hadid is finally ready to hit stores in September (but we have a first look at the pieces now!). J.Crew’s latest collection features the cutest new prints to liven up your wardrobe (we’re talking unicorns and Bengal tigers). Your favorite beauty brand, Aerin, is getting into the accessories business (and tapped the reigning queen of the accessory, Olivia Palermo, to lend a hand).  And finally, TOMS has your footwear needs covered thanks to its chic (and charitable) collaboration with Prabal Gurung.

First, let’s discuss Hadid’s new design gig. As Tommy Hilfiger’s brand ambassador she worked with the company to create a capsule collection featuring women’s sportswear, footwear, accessories and fragrance (the latter of which you can check out here) that mixes Hadid’s girl-next-door vibe with the preppy aesthetic the brand’s known for. In a statement, Tommy Hilfiger himself calls Hadid “the definition of today’s ‘Tommy Girl’ — her magnetic personality is bright and always optimistic, and her style is confident, effortless and cool.”

And Hadid is just as excited. “I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate,” said Hadid in a statement. “His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with. I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style. I think our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything: there are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly; everyone’s is going to love a different part of it.”

Courtesy of Tommy Hilfiger

The clothes will be available after the brand’s runway show during New York Fashion Week in September. But until then, we have a sneak peek of a few looks that include cozy knits, starry-print dresses, military-inspired jackets and sporty undergarments.

J.Crew

Your go-to store for those fall classics (that would be J.Crew) just debuted one of their coolest, most whimsical collections of late — and it’s all thanks to Drake’s. (No, it’s not the Drake you’re thinking of.) Drake’s is a renowned English brand that’s been handcrafting men’s scarves, ties and pocket squares since 1977. And its work with J.Crew marks the first-ever women’s collection for the company. For its inaugural collection, there will be scarves, shoes and pajama-inspired ensembles (which are a huge trend among celebs right now) all featuring whimsical prints with birds of paradise, unicorns, and Bengal tigers in various colorways.

J.Crew

The line is available on August 16 with accessories ranging between $ 59-$ 78 and clothing ringing in around $ 198.

Claiborne Swanson Frank

Next let’s talk accessories. Aerin Lauder is expanding her namesake beauty brand with a line of handbags, shoes and scarves launching this fall. She explained in a statement she wanted to “create meaningful pieces that could be carried from season to season in an effortless yet stylish way.” It’s set to incorporate the brand’s signature feminine style with sleek hardware and floral touches. The bags will come in “practical shapes” while the shoes all come in flat styles to accommodate an on-the-go (but uber-chic) woman.

Claiborne Swanson Frank

As for Olivia Palermo’s involvement, she was tapped to be the face of the fall campaign. “Olivia has always been a source of style inspiration for me and I wanted to work with someone that represented the Aerin aesthetic,” Lauder said in a statement. “Olivia is the modern style icon of our time and her feminine, modern and effortless style is very much in line with the DNA of our brand.”

You can shop the collection on Net-a-Porter.com and on the brand’s website, Aerin.com and — word to the wise — you might want to start saving now. Handbags retail from $ 450 to $ 2,450, shoes between $ 495 to $ 1,150 and scarves for $ 175 to $ 475.

TOMS is known for its one-for-one charitable business model (for every shoe sold they donate a pair to those in need). This fall the brand is partnering with designer Prabal Gurung to both celebrate and support Gurung’s home country of Nepal. For every pair of shoes purchased from the collaboration, TOMS will donate $ 5 to the Shikshya Foundation Nepal in support of education for underprivileged children and to help aid relief efforts in the country. The collection will be released on September 12, but for now, you can pick your favorite pattern (but let’s be real, we want all of them!) and add them to your shopping list.

Three Meditation Tips for Travel

2015-06-09-1433879421-8226080-IMG_4788.JPG

This meditation is one I use and recommend for when I am traveling. It is designed to be done for brief intervals. The tone it encourages is happy and light, and it will trigger a more positive vibration to accompany the traveler. Too often, when we are about to take a trip, we become anxious with excitement and/or nerves. It doesn’t matter whether they are positive or negative feelings, they can still alter your mood and affect it in ways you did not expect. Using the suggested meditation below will be a step in leading you to a more fulfilling travel experience.

1. Before you set out on your trip, it’s important to center yourself. Close your eyes. Inhale a very slow, deep breath in through your nose and exhale a very slow exhalation out through your nose again. Doing so will help you clear out the old energy while embracing new energy. Do this breath three times at the beginning and the end of your trip.

2. After you open your eyes, shake your hands out in front of you vigorously to shake up your energy a little. This will give you an energy jolt that will revive you with a supercharge.

3. Take an inventory of your surroundings. The more you are aware of what’s around you, the more comfortable you will be with where you are, and where you are headed.

These tips might seem too easy, but controlling your breathing with slow cleansing breaths before a trip can create a personal environment that lends itself to energy you can work with on a daily basis, no matter where you travel.

Researchers Determine the Three Ways to Well-Being

2015-06-04-1433438284-4172685-SDT1024x623.jpg
As far as psychology theories go, University of Rochester’s Richard Ryan and Edward Deci’s Self-Determination Theory is one of the biggest out there. The theory has been used to analysis situations as diverse as the happiness of lawyers1, classroom environments2, and the training of sales-people3.

This is serious science, with hundreds of researchers using the Self-Determination Theory as the foundation of their own work, and thousands of studies backing the theory. Ryan and Deci’s foundational paper4 received an astounding 13191 citations, making it the Gangnam Style of motivational psychology, albeit with less dancing.

Getting down to the theory itself: the Self-Determination Theory is a wide-ranging theory that explains motivation, personality and well-being. The theory proposes that in order to live a good life, you must fulfill certain innate psychological needs that provide the foundations for motivation and well-being.4 These needs are not learned inclinations but fundamental parts of human nature.5

Specifically, the theory identifies three needs which underlies human goals and behaviors:6

1) The need for Autonomy: Autonomy is as a sense of willingness and choice in your actions. Note that this does not mean independence from others.

2) The need for Competence: Competence is defined as a need to effectively manage and control yourself and your environment.

3) The need for Social Relatedness: Social relatedness is defined as a need to be understood, appreciated by, connected to, relate to and care for others.

Thus, if you wondering about how to live better, Ryan and Deci would recommend setting and attaining goals that are conducive to the satisfaction of the needs for autonomy, competence and social relatedness.

Comparisons can be drawn between the Self-Determination Theory and Ryff’s model of Psychological Well-Being. Both are largely in agreement about the contents of well-being. However, Ryff uses her six categories to define well-being while Ryan and Deci posits that autonomy, competence and social relatedness are ways to achieve well-being.

The Science

These three fundamental needs predicts multiple positive outcomes. Daily changes of emotional well-being have been shown to be caused by daily fulfillment of the three basic needs.7 Increase in well-being due to the fulfillment of needs has been found in diverse contexts, such as nursing homes8 and at workplaces.9

Other studies found that the theory applies across cultures, in countries such as Bulgaria10 and Turkey.11 A study which included college students in the U.S., Australia, Mexico, Venezuela, the Philippines, Malaysia, China, and Japan found that perceived need satisfaction predicted well-being to a similar extent across all cultures.12

Balance is Better

While each fundamental need has been found to individually predict well-being,13 it is better to fulfill the three needs in a balanced way. Research shows that people with balanced need-fulfillment have higher well-being compared to those who have the same total fulfillment score but are skewed towards a particular need.14

This suggests that all three basic needs need to be fulfilled in order to achieve optimal well-being.

Comedian Grace Helbig Credits All Her Success To These Three Words

Comedian Grace Helbig is a YouTube phenomenon, the star of her own new show on E! and a New York Times bestselling author, but the self-proclaimed “awkward older sister” says she owes all her success to failure.

In a commencement speech she delivered Friday at her alma mater, Ramapo College, Helbig, 29, recalled an epiphany she had while working an unfulfilling office job while dreaming of being a professional comedian.

“Quite honestly I think it is way more terrifying to be boring than to be a failure,” she said. “Failures are what make you interesting, and they’re what give you perspective and they’re what get you millions of views on YouTube.”

That mindset, she told the graduates, comes from a mantra she picked up while doing improv in New York after graduating in 2007: “Follow your fear.”

“When you’re uncomfortable, that’s when things get really interesting,” she said. “The more I kept doing improv and the more I kept following my fear, the more I realized that being uncomfortable is truly being alive,” Helbig added later. “The only thing you can do in this life is pursue your passions, celebrate your bloopers and never stop following your fear.”

That philosphy, she explained, led her to one of her most laughable learning experiences.

“I’ve auditioned for SNL in front of Lorne Michaels wearing a belly chain and doing my best Jersey girl accent. Oh my gawd, can you believe I didn’t get cast?” she said, flipping on the accent. “Oh my gawd.”

The Founder Of Papa John’s Has Three Steps To A Good Life (VIDEO)

John Schnatter, the founder and CEO of Papa John’s pizza company, gave a speech at Ball State University’s commencement on Saturday.

Among some regularly heard graduation advice (if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough), Schnatter explained his three steps to having a good life: “You wake up, you be nice, you kick ass, and you repeat,” he said. “It’s that simple.”

Schnatter added that all graduates should “do nice things for the people you love,” including friends, family and the community at large.

Travelon Set of Three Packing Squares


Travelon’s Set of Three Packing Squares are a smaller version of the many large packing cubes available today.

Perhaps place toiletries in one pouch, lotions in another, and your medicinals in a third Packing Square.And one thing we’ve learned over the past few years is that people are traveling with less traditional toiletry kits because of the new rules of traveling with liquids aboard an airplane. Many folks are leaving the kits at home and traveling with small, see-through, pouches or cubes. With all of your liquids in a clear, one-quart plastic bag, you have less toiletry items to pack elsewhere. The Travelon Set of Three Packing Squares in three varied colors gives you plenty of size and packing options.

Three Generations of Love Stories

2014-11-08-ThreeGenerations.jpg

My mom had just gotten home from a trip when she heard the phone ring. She’d been in Los Angeles meeting my dad’s family for the first time, and it was my dad on the phone checking in to make sure she got home safe. In addition, he was also wondering if maybe she’d be interested in marrying him.

She was, actually. Even though he was asking her over the phone mere hours after they’d been in each other’s physical presence. Even though she didn’t get a bended-knee proposal and couldn’t excitedly hug him, she still wanted to marry him.

He’d been thinking about asking her for a little while, but it was his grandmother who gave him that extra push. After my mom left, my dad’s grandmother said, “I like her. You should marry her.”

Now, he could have had that moment of revelation and then waited to ask her in person. But there’s another reason he asked her over the phone. If my mom said no, he could just get off the phone afterward.

And those are some reasons to ask a person to marry you over the phone.

Hey, it was better than not asking, my dad pointed out, and he’s quite right about that. After all, I wouldn’t exist if he hadn’t asked.

So it all worked out, but I would never say yes to a proposal like that. Not that I was ever expecting to receive a proposal like that, because who would propose to someone over the phone anyway? Well, besides my dad, of course.

Apparently, ahem, I would.

It wasn’t my fault though! My soon-to-be fiancé Joey and I were on the phone talking about his upcoming visit the following week, when all of a sudden he said he wanted to ask me an important question in person. A question he couldn’t ask me over the phone.

We had already talked about the other big things. We had said we loved each other and wanted to live together, so there was really only one important question left. Basically he had just announced he was going to propose to me in a week.

That is absolutely not how a proposal works! You either propose or you don’t propose. You don’t leave people in proposal purgatory.

Armed with the knowledge that a proposal was in my near future, I had two options: wait until I saw him or ask him to marry me over the phone. In other words, I could be laid-back about it and just wait for a romantic proposal in person (it was going to involve rose petals, I later found out), or I could be impatient, get all worked up, and ask him to marry me over the phone.

Less than a minute later, I had a fiancé that I couldn’t hug or kiss for another week.

My mom always said I should learn to be more patient. Come to think of it, she’d often tell my dad the same thing.

While the similarities might seem obvious, I didn’t make a connection between the proposals for years. I was too busy focusing on the differences.

For instance, my dad was 23 and my mom was 24 when they got engaged. By that point, they had been dating for about a year. In contrast, I was 19 and Joey was 20. And did I mention that we had only known each other for a month?

2014-11-08-DSC_9535.jpg

Joey and I met through friends the summer before our junior year of college. A group of us were all meeting at one house and carpooling to Venice Beach in a SUV. Joey wasn’t even supposed to go but when an extra row of seats refused to go in, someone remembered Joey’s mom had a Suburban. At first he wasn’t sure he’d be able to make it because he was supposed to pick up his dad at the airport, but at the last minute his dad decided to take a later flight.

We talked a lot at the beach and the Thai restaurant we went to afterwards. Over the course of the day, he went from being the short skinny guy with the big Suburban, to the kind of annoying argumentative guy, to the guy with the pretty eyes. (Instead of telling him he had pretty eyes, I chickened out and told him he had long eyelashes.)

Back at our starting point, Joey offered to drive me home even though my friend had driven me there and my house was completely out of the way. During the ride, he told me stories about his life, and my perception of him changed again.

We got together as a group a couple more times over the next three weeks. Joey and I usually ended up gravitating toward each other, spending most of the time talking alone. The last time we all hung out was the day before my family’s annual summer trip to Mammoth Mountains. After that, I’d be heading off to the Netherlands to study abroad for a semester, and Joey was going back to school in Florida.

We both admitted we liked each other and agreed to write. At one point, I stopped him mid-sentence to kiss him. He was so thrown off by this that he just smiled into the kiss, not kissing me back. (He was actually probably more thrown off by the fact that he had planned to kiss me at my front door. Sometimes he needs a little time to regroup when his plans change.)

We wrote letters, emails, and talked on the phone. We’d talk for hours and hours. He said he loved me, I said I loved him, we got engaged. He flew out to visit me and we spent the weekend in Paris.

2014-11-08-JoeyRachaelParis2.jpg

He waited until he was back in Florida to tell his parents we were engaged. By that point, we’d known each other about a month and a half and had been a couple for three weeks.

I waited a few more weeks to tell my parents because then I could at least say Joey and I had been together for two months. Sadly, that extra month didn’t make me sound as mature and responsible as I’d hoped. Needless to say, they didn’t take it very well.

From then on, it was an endless stream of wedding planning and people trying to talk me out of getting married. One of the only people who didn’t object was my grandmother. She said she really couldn’t say anything bad about it because she and Grandpa had gotten married pretty quickly too.

She didn’t give me the details, but the old love letters I found years later filled in the blanks. Turns out they had only been together about three months when they got engaged, and eight months when they married. She was 22 and he was 24.

Too bad I didn’t know all that back when everyone was telling me I was crazy. It might have helped my case. (To be fair, when I realized that my grandparents had only known each other eight months when they got married, my first thought was, “Wow, isn’t that a little fast?”)

We made it down the aisle despite all the hubbub. We got married on August 5, 2002, exactly a year after we met. (Unfortunately for all our guests, we met on a Sunday, so our wedding was on a Monday night. By that point, I was so immune to everyone’s grumblings that I didn’t care if anyone complained.)

2014-11-08-DSC_9509.jpg

As of November 2014, we’ve been together 13 years and married 12 years. My grandparents were married 55 years and my parents were married a few months shy of 35 years. I’m hoping to follow in their footsteps in that way too. So far so good.

The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)

The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)


This carefully crafted ebook: “The Count of Monte Cristo + The Three Musketeers + The Man in the Iron Mask (3 Unabridged Classics)” contains 3 unabridged classic books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, first published in serial form from August 1844 until January 1846. The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean, and in the Levant during the historical events of 1815-1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. The Three Musketeers is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, first published in serial form in 1844. Set in the 17th century, it recounts the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan after he leaves home to travel to Paris, to join the Musketeers of the Guard. D’Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title; those are his friends Athos, Porthos and Aramis, inseparable friends who live by the motto “all for one, one for all”, a motto which is first put forth by d’Artagnan. The Man in the Iron Mask climactically concludes the epic adventures of the three Musketeers. The Man in the Iron Mask is a name given to a prisoner arrested as Eustache Dauger in 1669 or 1670, and held in a number of jails, including the Bastille and the Fortress of Pignerol. He was held in the custody of the same jailer, Bénigne Dauvergne de Saint-Mars, for a period of 34 years. The possible identity of this man has been thoroughly discussed and has been the subject of many books, because no one ever saw his face, which was hidden by a mask of black velvet c

The Whalesong Trilogy: All Three Books

The Whalesong Trilogy: All Three Books


The Whalesong Trilogy together in one easy-to-read omnibus, including:WHALESONG (#1)The play of light and shadow, sea and sky; tropical breezes and the chill breath of arctic ice mountains; the mystery of Leviathan, greatest of all God’s creatures, of endless undersea caverns, of krill beds stretching miles in all directions and hundreds of fathoms deep, of the Ice at the End of the World, of the haunting song of the humpback whale. And “sehnsucht,” that insatiable longing wakened by the siren song of the sea, calling us back to its dark depths: these are the elements woven into a tapestry of wonder and enchantment by Robert Siegel.Here is the story of Hruna the humpback whale, from birth marked for greatness by his size and courage. As days of carefree frolicking give way to adolescence, Hruna prepares for the Lonely Cruise, the rite of passage into adulthood, by visiting the Great Whale who lives on the ocean floor. There he learns the myth of origins and receives his true name in preparation for the swift adventures and narrow escapes that propel him into the ultimate challenge of leading his pod of whales in a desperate fight for survival.WHITE WHALE (#2)Whalesong introduced Hruna, a humpback whale, in an ecological parable of personal and spiritual growth. Now, in WHITE WHALE, meet Hruna’s son, Hralekana, and enter a deep sea world that dazzles and delights.As he swims the oceans of the world, Hralekana, a magnificent great white whale, recounts his birth and frolicsome childhood—how he was teased for being all white, how he soon outgrew all his playmates, and how he came to discover the other inhabitants of the sea. He share traditional whale legends and warnings: to beware of great white sharks, killer whales, the giant squid, and most especially, humans, who sometimes capture sea creatures and make them perform strange games to earn their food—something that only dolphins, as natural show-offs, actually enjoy.Growing and learning his pod’s feeding, mating, a

Death Comes for Three

Death Comes for Three


It was the social event of the year in the small subdivision called Enchanted Pecan Groves. Everybody attending this event had a great time. The Victorian theme party at the Cobblestones house would be remembered by all of the party goers for a long time. The party was given in an elaborate Victorian design with all the proper designs and props… The decorations were authentic and so were the costumes. A small Chamber orchestra filled the house with beautiful music from long ago. The food was delicious and ever one had a wonderful time. The party was not very big it was rather an exclusive affair, but never the less no expenses and/or effort was spared to make this event live on in every ones mind for years. The person of the day was the Cobblestones daughter Victoria it was her 9th birthday. Victoria adored the Victorian time and she asked her parents if she could live one day just as if it was the year 1840. Being an only child and of course spoiled and loved by her parents the little girl got her wish. The date of the party was August the 13th a Friday, and the heat had soared all day long; it was the hottest most humid month of August any one could remember. But that didn’t take any ones excitement for this party away. Victorian costumes had been ordered and especially the women had quite a bit of clothing to wear. The air conditioning units were working overtime to keep all party guests comfortable. Oh what an elaborate affair it was, family and friends commented that this was the absolute best time they ever had together. Hundred’s of pictures were taken to remember every detail, without a doubt this party would be remembered forever. No one in attendance knew why though; because what they didn’t know was the fact- that Evil was at the party. Death came to the party to claim three lives after the party was over. It was midnight when the gruesome affair was discovered by a neighbor. The neighbor called the police and they began an intensive investigatio

Kristen Stewart’s ‘Camp X-Ray’ And Three Other Movies From The First 24 Hours Of Sundance

The first 24 hours of the Sundance Film Festival are now complete. The weather in Park City, Utah has been surprisingly pleasant (which I am sure will change drastically because of the sentence I just wrote). Regardless, as in years past, I’ll be providing a daily synopsis of all of the movies that I’ve seen at the festival.

This first installment includes the current talk of the festival so far, “Whiplash,” the surprise hit starring Miles Teller; Kristen Stewart’s Guantanamo Bay drama, “Camp X-Ray”; and Aaron Paul’s first film post-“Breaking Bad,” “Hellion.”

“Whiplash”

whiplash

Sundance isn’t exactly known for showing, let’s say, their better films on the first night of the festival. I think this may be the reason that not many people saw “Whiplash” coming. Plus, the synopsis about a college student, Andrew (Miles Teller), trying out for his school’s jazz band doesn’t sound, on the surface, like something oozing with excitement. Boy, were those assumptions wrong. The key here is that his music professor, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), isn’t the “tough love, but has a heart of gold” type of guy. For lack of a better term, he’s an asshole. He casually drops homophobic slurs while berating his students and he’s not afraid of physical abuse. As an audience, we hate this guy. But, we don’t doubt Fetcher’s talent and Fletcher doesn’t doubt Andrew’s talent — even though these two despise each other. Which, for the viewer, creates an electric relationship to observe. (And one of the best drum solos I’ve ever seen on screen.)

“Camp X-Ray”

camp xray

Even though it doesn’t completely work, this was a good career choice for Kristen Stewart. And she’s fine as Amy Cole, a private stationed at Guantanamo Bay whose duty it is to keep the detainees – never “prisoners” – alive. There’s certainly an interesting message in this film concerning the ethics of Guantanamo Bay, but, as a movie, there’s a lot of mundane scenes of soldiers peering into cell windows. It’s a movie about people in a remote prison who we know aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, which limits where the story can really go. (Though, it does flirt with a borderline sexual assault at an off-duty party. This does not make the movie any better.) There’s a level of appreciation here that Stewart tried something completely different, but the movie itself doesn’t have any room to breathe.

“Hellion”

hellion

Boy, it’s nice to watch Aaron Paul play someone who is not Jesse Pinkman. And it’s kind of obvious on-screen that Paul is himself relishing this opportunity. (Note: I spoke to Paul after the premiere for an interview that will also publish this weekend.) Paul plays Hollis, a widower alcoholic trying to raise his two young sons, the older of which, Jacob (Josh Wiggins) is a hellion and seems to find himself in trouble with the law on a regular basis. The film takes a really odd narrative choice in the final act, but that doesn’t overshadow the great performances by both Paul and newcomer Josh Wiggins.

“A Most Wanted Man”

a most wanted man

From director Anton Corbijn — the man who brought you “The American” (a movie that most people don’t like very much) – comes another slow burn, “A Most Wanted Man.” Set in Hamburg, Germany — a hotbed of sorts for terrorist activities — we follow German spy Gunther Bachman (Philip Seymour Hoffman), as he attempts to locate a suspected terrorist, while trying to prevent his own government and the American government from overeacting. Look, the story here is interesting, but execution is dull. I actually enjoyed the slow-paced “The American,” because the tone was slow. It felt like the movie was supposed to take its time. Here, there’s so much going on and so many interesting characters, I was on the edge of my seat for the first half of the movie waiting for something to happen – because it feels like something should happen. Then I just eventually gave up. Yet, I still found the movie strangely compelling. Look, no one ever said that the spy game was exciting.

TV TONIGHT: ‘Day Of The Doctor’ Reunites Three Time Lords – Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt In 50th Birthday Special

When is a TV show more than a TV show?

When it’s the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’, being shown on cinema screens around the world, amid plot hints and red herrings by writers, storyline clues pounced upon and debated by eager fans,

Because Steven Moffat and his team have been successfully secretive about the events around tonight’s festivities, we only know some bare bones.

Three Timelords unite for the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’

Special guests at tonight’s party include Daleks, Zygons and Elizabeth I. Current companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) is joined by a familiar face in Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), during three unfolding plots set in different times, destined to unite in one almighty battle.

One of the familiar faces in ‘The Day of the Doctor’

Ingrid Oliver, Jemma Redgrave and Joanna Page are also on board, but the real birthday boys are Matt Smith and David Tennant, a combination enough to keep any more recent fans happy, plus the tantalising reappearance of John Hurt to explain away all those elliptical statements we’ve received thus far.

Who’d have thought a grouchy, grandfatherly figure would have stepped into a police telephone box in 1963 and, fifty years later, still keep us guessing?
