While he was able to get tips from his co-star Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch explains how he conquered the challenges of motion capture for his role in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”
Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly on ‘The Hobbit’ and what they geek out for and about Battle of the Five Armies (finally someone talking some concretes about it)
What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
now take a moment to remember that this is all stop-motion animation
now take another moment to remember this was a movie/animation for kids.
Based on a book written for kids.
Not sure what the big deal about that is? It’s only Americans who seem to think kids can’t handle anything slightly unpleasant, and must have everything sanitized for them. Neil Gaiman is British, he knows that kids are not only very capable of dealing with darkness, but live in a world much darker than adults seem to think or remember kids do.
Children’s stories from everywhere else around the world deal with death, and violence, and morbid, scary things, quite frankly.
god bless sdcc
