'God's Own Country' Stops Amazon Streaming After Censorship
ORIGINAL (5/20/2020): God's Own Country is a beautiful film — truly. It's possibly one of the most slept on queer films from 2017. It, in our opinion, also contains some of the greatest gay sex scenes in film history. But apparently, Amazon has edited some of those scenes out of the version currently available on Amazon Prime.
10 Outdated Disney Movies Parents Won't Show Their Kids, According to New Poll
With screen time limits completely out the window due to the coronavirus pandemic and weeks on end indoors, my husband and I have been letting our 20-month-old watch more TV and movies than we otherwise would. When we couldn't take one more Blue's Clues episode or Trolls rewatch, we broke out the next social distancing tool up our sleeves: Disney+, Disney's streaming service.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Moana, and Toy Story were all hits—we've got a major Buzz Lightyear fan on our hands—but when it came time to watch 1953's Peter Pan, we were struck by how outdated it was. I certainly didn't remember all of the racism and sexism. Between Peter Pan telling Wendy that "girls talk too much," the guns (!!), Tinker Bell trying to kill Wendy over jealousy, and the treatment of Native Americans (“What makes the red man red?"—seriously?!), I was happy when my son walked away to play with his toys and just wasn't that into it.
Concern over Pattinson and The Batman is rapidly growing
Is Robert Pattinson going... batty?
Fans are taking to social media to voice their concern following the publication of an in-depth piece in GQ entitled, "Robert Pattinson: A Dispatch from Isolation." In it, the actor describes his existence kicking around the London apartment in which he's hunkered down while production on The Batman is paused due to the coronavirus outbreak.
That concern is twofold: for the movie, and for the actor himself. As far as the film goes, it appears that Pattinson isn't exactly following the kind of workout and exercise regimen that one might expect from the star of a highly anticipated superhero movie. He revealed that his trainer left him with a Bosu ball and a weight that have basically been gathering dust in the corner since his quarantine began. "I think if you're working out all the time, you're part of the problem," Pattinson said. "You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the '70s. Even James Dean — he wasn't exactly ripped."
Cannes Jury President Spike Lee Responds to Festival Postponement (EXCLUSIVE)
Over the last 73 years, the Cannes Film Festival has often been billed as the world’s biggest and most glamorous celebration of the movies. But this year, it was poised to make history.
Director and activist Spike Lee had been selected as the first black president of the festival’s jury. Several of Lee’s films — including 1986’s “She’s Gotta Have It,” 1989’s “Do the Right Thing” and 2018’s “BlacKkKlansman” — had premiered in the South of France. It was long overdue for him to lead the charge on who would take home the next Palme D’Or, the festival’s highest honor.
But on Thursday, after weeks of speculation as the coronavirus spreads around the world, the festival announced that this year’s Cannes had been postponed from its scheduled dates of May 12 to 23. Thierry Fremaux, the festival’s director, is now scrambling to see if he can reschedule Cannes for a later window, possibly in June or July.
Lee, who lives in Brooklyn, said he’s spent the last few days with his family. “We’re doing whatever everybody else is trying to do – come together, love each other and just try to ride it out,” he said, as he lamented the lack of testing available to the public. “People are being laid off. People are being fired. People don’t know where their next check is going to come from, how they are going to see their children. When the schools close, who is going to take care of their children? This shit is crazy. This shit is bananas.”
THE JOHN WAYNE INTERVIEW THAT CONTINUES TO OUTRAGE PEOPLE TODAY
Snopes.com cites chapter and verse of the interview published by Playboy Magazine in its May 1971 issue. In those days Playboy had a certain reputation not only for photography, but also long-form interviews that tried to get beneath the surface of the individual in question. Wayne gave them ample opportunity. One of the questions asked if Wayne felt any empathy toward Native Americans — termed Indians in those times — so often portrayed in his films as villains. Wayne's response:
"I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that's what you're asking. Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves."
In a 1971 interview with Playboy magazine, Wayne admitted he didn't like African-American people (or "the blacks" as he constantly called them) being in charge of anything because white people are apparently the only people who know what they're doing. As he said in the interview, "I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don't believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people." He also railed against black people getting too many opportunities. He felt that "Hollywood studios are carrying their tokenism a little too far," and that minorities should only get roles meant for them. Like slaves — Wayne actually claimed to be inclusive because he "had a black slave in The Alamo." To that, you might say, "well, it's a start," but honestly, it's not.
David Cronenberg: 'Movies were made for sex'
Hope is one thing he doesn’t seem be especially short on, however. For all the existential despair of his oeuvre, he’s got a surprisingly sunny outlook on the future, both for himself and at large. Though he’s not too fond of the “completely asexual” superhero movies coming from the American mainstream, he believes the boundary-pushing strain of eroticism he once called his own is alive and well in modern releases like Julia Ducournau’s Raw and April Mullen’s Below Her Mouth. “To me, movies are sex,” he muses. “Movies were made for sex, there’s no question about it.”

Zachary Levi Wasn't Sure If He Wanted to Live Anymore, Battled Feelings of Failure Before Shazam! Role Changed His Life
Zachary Levi may have had a super hero save his life. The actor previously best known for NBC's Chuck was cast as Shazam! in the DC Comics big screen universe and now admits that the casting helped him find a new will to live. After struggling to find work while chasing his dream of being an actor, Levi began to doubt himself and look down at his failures along the way. When he seemed to be reaching rock bottom, he turned down an opportunity to try out for the Shazam! role out of fear of failing, however, a little bit of self help through therapy and other avenues convinced him to give it a shot -- and his life is changed forever for it.
"This last year has been fascinating. The last few, actually," Levi said on Instagram. "Two years ago today I was moving to Toronto, for the 4th time 3 years, to begin working on [Shazam!], one of the single greatest gifts I’ve ever been handed. Ironically, just 4 months prior, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to live anymore. My goals, and visions, and hopes, and dreams, and therefore expectations for myself, have always been a lot."
