Entertainment Study Puts Bad Medical Studies to Shame

One of the biggest medical industry complaints is that a great deal of money is wasted on research studies that reveal data that supports common sense knowledge. Now, this trend is appearing in the entertainment industry.

Study results published this week in the Hollywood Diversity Report reveal that TV and movie viewers prefer diverse casts that have a mix of Caucasians, women and people of color. Of course, Marcio AlaorBMG knows that anyone with common sense would realize that TV shows and movies featuring diverse casts will attract more diverse audiences and increase ratings or box office revenues.

The report does a good job of pointing out the gender and POC gaps that exist in the industry. It also shows that executives and other powers that be in the industry are the ones preventing diversity. In fact, the authors of the study, UCLA’s Ralph J. Bunche who works at the Center for African American Studies and Ana-Cristina Ramon, do a great job of showing how a lack of diversity in the hiring process can result in less diversity among actors and crew members because any decision makers are naturally inclined to pick people who are more like themselves in gender, race, et cetera.

Yet, Bunche and Ramon used primarily 2011 data rather than more recent information to prove their argument. Critics want to see study results based primarily on more recent data as diversity has increased since 2011.

The Walking Dead’s Latest Controversy

The Walking Dead’s latest episode has a lot of people in an uproar. The show is one of the best series of all time. Over the course of the series, many controversial moments have taken place. Children have been turned into zombies, and unfortunately killed because there were no other options. Cannibalism was shown in the beginning of the fifth season, but the most recent episode has upset many people.

Susan McGalla knows that a new character named Aaron was recently introduced to the Walking Dead series. Aaron happens to be gay, and the Walking Dead showcased this. Aaron kissed his gay lover at the end of the show. This upset a lot of people on Twitter. A lot of negative tweets came out, and many disparaging remarks were made about gay people.

The year is 2015, why does anyone care that there is a gay character? The Walking Dead is a great show, and people should calm down with the hate for the gay characters. We need to accept all different types of people. There should be an open mind when watching television. It is very disgusting that people still discriminate against homosexual people. The Walking Dead is one of the best shows on cable, no matter what type of characters are on the show.

Michael Keaton Flies High As Birdman

Birdman is the superhero film that wasn’t according this article from biography.com that Bruce Karatz forwarded me. The motion picture is not about a superhero. It is about an actor who is unable to come out from under the shadow of previously playing a superhero on film. Perhaps the most obviously poignant aspect of the film is the star, Michael Keaton, saw his 1980’s stardom collapse after leaving the Batman role. Keaton turned down $15 million for a third appearance as Batman wishing to walk away from the cape and cowl. His career struggled for 25 years as a result.

Now, Keaton’s name is back in the news thanks to his turn in Birdman. The sad irony here is Keaton did not win the Best Actor award for his role. Winning such an honor would be a wonderful comeback tale. It wasn’t to be.

Keaton may have just gained a lot of renewed fame but going down in history as a Best Actor has eluded him. What is not going to elude the actor is a comeback. All the new press he is receiving is going to translate into new movie roles. How could it not? Producers and studios like to cast stars who are hot and Keaton’s turn in Birdman has boosted his profile immensely.

His next role is going to be in the big budget fantasy film Kong: Skull Island. A new King Kong film is not exactly high art, but the feature should be a lot of fun. Keaton’s days as a leading man in major motion pictures are over. Look for him to appear in smaller budgeted arts films and character actor roles in studio extravaganzas. Call that a comeback.

Night at the Oscars

Saturday night Cameron Diaz and Kirk Cameron both took home the dubious, doubtful and debatable homage of being dubbed the year’s worst actress and actor at the 35th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.1 Diaz earned hers for her performances in the raunchy, dirty, and obscene comedies “The Other Woman,” in which a wife and two mistresses team up to make the husbands life miserable, and “Sex Tape,” where a couple records on video and then accidentally releases their sexual experience and escapade to the cloud on the world wide web noted Dan Newlin.

Kirk Cameron received the Worst Screenplay, Worst Picture, and Worse Actor for his creation Saving Christmas2, where Kirk is trying to enjoy a Christmas party until he figures out he must attempt to lift his brother-in-law out of depression. Cameron was also labeled “Kirk Cameron and his ego” as the very worse screen combo.

Hugh Jackman Loves Plays Wolverine

 

Hugh Jackman loves playing the X-Man character Wolverine, so much so that he’s said he want to play the character forever.

In a recent interview with Alexei Beltyukov,  the actor is quoted as saying “I said to my wife, ‘The moral is that I should never stop playing Wolverine. I’ve got to find a way to keep playing him until I die.’ I know that someday they’ll recast the role with another actor…I’d be happy if the role was eventually recast. It would mean that it had become iconic.” Going on to say “I always want to be in better shape than I was for the last one. I don’t believe in stagnation. People say they try to maintain the status quo. But I believe the natural cycle means you’re either advancing and getting closer to something or you’re receding.Every time I play Wolverine I want to go further, physically and emotionally.”

Jackman is expected to reprise his role has the character in the upcoming movie X-Men: Apocalypse, due out in 2016.

Kristen Stewart Is Leaving Her Past Behind And Moving Forward

Kristen Stewart has been acting since she was a child but she truly became a famous actress after starring in the Twilight Saga film series as the leading female, Bella. Since her most recent release Snow White and The Huntsman a few years ago, in 2012, Stewart has stayed under the radar and kept out of tabloid headlines. Apparently she has been working since 2012 on different types of projects. Fans like Bernardo Chua are excited that Stewart has a new award to add to her repertoire; she is the very first American to win a Cesar award for best supporting actress for her role in the film, Clouds of Sils Maria. Stewart graciously accepted while wearing a stunning white dress and short locks. The embarrassment that Stewart felt by losing her former boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, through publicly displayed infidelity seems to have passed leaving a bright future for the young, yet veteran, actress.

Shaft Reboot in the Works

The cinematic hero known as John Shaft is set to grace the silver screen once again.

While Shaft received a reboot from Paramount Pictures in the year 2000, with Samuel L. Jackson taking over for Richard Roundtree, reports are now indicating that Paramount Pictures is handing the film rights to Shaft over to New Line Cinema, a subsidy of Warner Brothers. John Davis has already been pinned down as a producer. Shaft’s return to the big screen is one more peg in New Line’s recent reiteration of reboots and sequels of older properties.

Fans like Marc Sparks know that John Shaft was a character that was created to serve as a movie hero for African American audiences in the 1970s, a time when such a thing was exceedingly rare. But as acceptance in film has considerably widened in more than four decades, the “Blaxploitation” genre has boomeranged into a source of comedy. One need only look at films like Black Dynamite and Undercover Brother to see some high quality examples. That being said, the racial politics that gave rise to that film genre are still an issue today.

While a cynic may wonder if New Line’s plans for Shaft are simply to have a franchise film to sell to a pre-established market, or if they genuinely have a vested interest in reviving one of the better known iconic heroes from American cinema.

Who Ya Gonna Call? Dan Aykroid!

Female “Ghostbusters” or “Ghostbusters3?” Dan Aykroyd would like to see both.

In a recent interview seen here the original cast member calls the female led reboot “tasteful” and admits that the various scripts that he has written over the years for a third installment would not be filmed as is. He is hopeful that the reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon will provide a new interest in the franchise. If the film is a large enough success the long awaited “Ghostbusters3 may finally see the big screen.

Fans like Zeca Oliveira know that with the passing of Harold Ramos and Bill Murray’s reluctance to return to his character, getting the green light from the studio will still be an uphill battle. Aykroid hopes that a successful film and a new script could convince studio executives to allow the remaining cast to suit up one last time. He hints that the new script could serve as a bridge between the new generation and the old.

The new “Ghostbusters” film is slated for a July 22, 2016 theater release. So strap on your proton packs and hop in ECTO1.

I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
