Catfish the TV Show

In 2010, a very mysterious documentary named catfish started making the rounds. It was labeled as a “shocking true story” and the advertising pushed for people to keep the secret of the movie. Ultimately the movie chronicled the story of Nev Schulman and a woman he fall for over the internet without meeting in person.  As Nev tracked her down, he realized that he had been lied to for months and that she was not the person that she said she was. As so a new term was phrased; Nev had fallen for a “catfish,” aka someone who creates a false online profile and pretends to be someone they are not. The movie spawned a reality docudrama for MTV, dubbed catfish: The TV Show, where Nev and his friend Max travel around the country and help people find out if their online love is real or if they have a catfish. The series is not only fun and intriguing, but it is also addictive. They are currently in their second season, whose story does the new episode tell?

Probably, every man on this planet has his one image of a brilliant film. In the memory of his recently deceased brother, Tony Scott, Ridley Scott seems to have fulfilled everyone’s expectations. Here comes the new masterpiece by Ridley Scott, Counselor, due out on the 25th of October, will most likely respond even the most demanding images of the work of cinematic art. The author of No Country for Old Men, Cormac McCarthy wrote the screenplay for the Counselor and this fact by itself alone suggests that the film will surely be worth special attention. The Counselor Trailer reveals only the key moments of the story line and does it pretty niggardly, so we can only guess, but the basis is extremely promising.

It all start with a usual story of a gifted lawyer, who, being familiar with the law shortcuts, exceeds his authority in the chase for something extra and gets caught up in some criminal schemes, related to the traffic of a fantastic amount of drugs. Of course, there are some menacing and dangerous villains, the power and blood lust of which has no description, and terrible secrets, the disclosure of which threatens with some dire consequences. Unsurprisingly, the Counselor trailer has a story of a tender and bland, yet very unhappy love, the illusion of a happy life, which is not destined to ever come true, an odd and unfaithful friendship and, of course, dashed hopes and dreams. The Counselor trailer would not have anything so tremendously amazing in it, if not for Ridley Scott and his impeccable status of a great director, for Cormac McCarthy and his reputation as a talented writer, and, evidently, for the actors who has been chosen for the leading roles. The hapless counselor, who has been mercilessly betrayed by his fate, is performed by the matchlessly handsome in his dispassionate manner Michael Fassbender, his naïve sweetheart is tremendous Penelope Cruz. Other characters are not yet completely identified because of the mysterious trailer of the Counselor, but the reputation of the actors speaks for itself. On the secondary roles wicked Ridley Scott has chosen none other than Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz.

The Counselor Ridley Scott could become a legend among American cinematic thrillers. The cast is flawless, the script is from a talented writer, the reputation of the director is admirable – so the recipe of a genuine cinema masterpiece observed strictly.

With Orange is the New Black, Weeds creator Jenji Kohan has a stunning, hilarious new hit that offers life lessons straight from a minimum-security prison. The series is only available on Netflix, available with Hughesnet.com satellite Internet or other high-speed connection. Orange — or OITNB as fans call it — follows the prison life of Piper Chapman, a Seven-Sisters educated white girl who carried drug money and got caught before the statute of limitations ran out. Prison puts Piper in contact with her ex Alex, who got her into the drug trade, and a range of characters, from a transgendered hairdresser to a born-again faith healer. Among the top truths of OITNB are these nine life lessons.

1. Make peace with your past.
When Piper learns Alex is in the same prison, she is enraged. However, Piper must learn to make peace with her past, forgive Alex and accept her crime and subsequent punishment. No matter what your past, you must come to peace with it before you can move forward.

2. Think before you speak.
When Piper voices her views on prison food, she offends the head chef, gets herself dissed in the food line by the chef’s friends and must go to great lengths to make it up to the chef. Piper learns fast to think before she speaks to avoid making enemies.

3. Lean on your friends to get through hard times.
Friends are a must for prison life, just as in real life. All the women of “Orange” lean on friends to get through hard times portrayed on the show.

4. Be resourceful.
Afraid of getting disease from prison showers, Piper rigs her own flip flops. Sophia teaches her to make duct tape shower shoes until her commissary money comes in. Throughout the show, the prisoners show resourcefulness that will translate directly to out-of-prison success.

5. Practice tolerance.
Born again Tiffany Doggett’s anti-gay stance pits Piper and her ex Alex against the prison’s Christian coalition. Pranks escalate as Tiffany locks Alex in a washing machine, and Alex and Piper conspire to send Tiffany to the prison’s psych ward. Instead of seeking revenge on your enemies, Orange suggests that you practice tolerance.

6. Be who you are.
By showcasing transgender, bisexual and lesbian characters — not whitewashing or feminizing these female characters a la Pretty Little Liars and referencing the Kinsey scale — the series tells its viewers that they can and should be who they are. Sophia’s past shows that she was willing to commit a crime to become female but must learn to let others be who they want to be.

7. Hope will get you through.
Even in prison, there are little things to look forward to. Taystee knows all of them. Remember to have gratitude and hope when you can, even if all you can look forward to is taco night.

8. Every action has consequences.
In “Orange,” every action, even one as minor as two prisoners dancing together, has big repercussions. Think before you act.

9. Life presents unexpected learning opportunities.
Piper’s prison assignment in an electrical shop seems like a mistake, until she turns it around and accepts the challenge of learning a new skill. Through life, you will always learn new skills.

The first season of Orange is the New Black is currently airing on Netflix, with the second season currently filming with an anticipated release next year.

WWE, Edge returns to Monday Night Raw!

We are getting closer and closer to the new television season, so it seems like a good time to ease back into our daily TV Tonight column. Thankfully we have year round new programming thanks to a few staples. Included in that mix of content providers is the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). They have long running primetime shows such as Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, along with other weekly shows including WWE Main Event, WWE Superstars, and their new reality show Total Divas. This does not even count their numerous webshows, like WWE NXT and Backstage Fallout. If you are ever bored in television’s offseason, set a DVR pass to WWE programming and it can keep you very busy for hours on end.

Tonight’s Monday Night Raw comes to us from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON. The big news is the promised return of Edge, whose career was cut short due to an injury. Also on the card and scheduled to appear are Randy Orton, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Big Show, Rob Van Dam, Alberto Del Rio, Triple H, and Mr. McMahon (to name more than a few).

thewaywayback

There are some movies which are famous and wide-spread only through the weekend of the premiere. They are pointless, useless and stupid. Most often, these movies are comedies. But there are some comedies which are not entirely comedies. There are stories about love and disgrace, hatred and forgiveness, and all these in disguise if a sift and light summer comedy. The Way Way Back is a story of reincarnation, even in such a short time and under such comical circumstances, always touch to depth of soul. It is unlikely that a summer at an Aqua park and several new acquaintances can abruptly change human’s life. However, this is precisely what happens in the The Way Way Back. And it is portrayed so normal and fine-looking, that not to believe it is simply impossible. The studio which brought us once such heartwarming stories as Juno and Little Miss Sunshine is about to restore our faith in humanity one more time. This summer comes yet another one life-affirming, gentle, a little clumsy, but nevertheless charming comedy Way Way Back. It might seem that nothing could be said more about the beauty of the human soul in the guise of an extremely awkward shell and the importance of genuine values than it already has been said, but there are many possible points of view. This time, the point of view belongs to a socially-awkward teenager boy (Liam James), who is constantly bullied by his mom’s douche boyfriend (Steve Carell) and has no basics of social knowledge whatsoever.

A pleasant boy, who had all the changes to grow up and to be a successful man, loses faith. He has nothing to live for, nothing to love, only suffer and disgrace. Nobody cares about him, even his mother has more interest in her new douche boyfriend, who, by the way, always seizes an opportunity to humiliate Duncan. Duncan is self-conscious, he has no self-respect whatsoever. In other words, Duncan is a classical loser. But something changes, when his mother’s boyfriend takes the whole family on a vacation to his beach house. Duncan changes, his life changes and it will never come back to be the same.

By the will of the fate Duncan meets an actual spiritual guide (Sam Rockwell), who explains to him how important is to believe in yourself and how unimportant is the opinions of others. Over time, Duncan becomes stronger and stronger, so he finds a lovely girl who, of course, is at first confused, but then falls for changing Duncan more and more. Throughout the movie, we trace the emergence of Duncan as a man and as a person. All this comes easily, effortlessly, in the relaxed atmosphere of a summer frivolity. It takes only one dig deeper, and immediately comes the realization that The Way Way Back is not a mindless comedy, It is a story of a boy, who became a man. It is a story of love so pure and unconditional, that there are no conventionalities to hold it back.

X-Factor Issue 262

It is with a heavy heart that I write that X-Factor, one of Marvel’s most consistent, entertaining and best written series, has come to an end. Yesterday, X-Factor #262 hit stores and with it part 6 of “The End of X-Factor”, a very literal end as the series has come to a natural conclusion by longtime writer Peter David. The series set itself part from the X-Universe and the larger Marvel universe by somehow making mutants, time travel, demons, and even Gods somehow more grounded.

The twists and turns kept coming as characters came and left throughout the years, but the core team- all of which were secondary characters, were brought front and center by David and through his writing any one of them would be capable of leading their own series. There is a bittersweet element to the 6 part “The End of X-Factor” arch that closed out the series. Each issue we’ve gotten a look (a coda of sorts) at where each character is following “Hell on Earth”. As much as a love seeing the characters where they are post X-Factor, I’d much rather have seen them all together, at least one last time. Maybe issue 262 will do just that, but I doubt it.

X-Factor #626
Official Description: The end of X-Factor!

Peter David has left X-Factor behind before and returned in the past, maybe he’ll do the same in the future. We can only hope… Maybe Layla Miller could let us know?
