‘Frozen’ Becomes the Highest-Grossing Animated Film Ever

Samuel:

WHAT?????????? It was good, but it wasn’t that great of a movie. And that song is overplayed. MEH!!!!!!!!!

Originally posted on Variety:

Disney’s animated tentpole “Frozen” has continued its wildly successful run in international markets to become to biggest animated pic ever, bringing its total to $1.072 billion this weekend after opening in its final market, Japan.

The competition to beat was another Disney/Pixar title, “Toy Story 3,” which grossed $1.063 billion in 2010. “Frozen” earned $398.4 million domestically and $674 million internationally to take the title.

In its run overseas, “Frozen” has become the top Disney or Pixar film in 27 territories. It has grossed $50.5 million in Japan thus far, and also broke into the top ten films of all time globally at the box office this weekend.

It was released more than four months ago in the U.S., where it had a late November opening. Since then, it has enjoyed both critical and major financial success, becoming the first billion-dollar film from Disney Animation Studios. It won two Academy…

#CancelColbert? I wasn’t offended

I don’t know why it’s racist. It’s a satire and it was used to prove a point.

People need to relax.

‘Captain America’s’ Chris Evans Says He’s Ready to Leave Acting Behind

Samuel:

Don’t leave us you handsome man!

Originally posted on Variety:

There’s no escaping Captain America — especially for the actor behind the blue mask. That’s not just a career assessment. It’s a physical reality. To gear up as the iconic Marvel superhero, Chris Evans, the star of the upcoming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” once again dons his trademark patriotic suit, which requires the actor to wear a snug latex undergarment that keeps the uniform from clinging to his sculpted muscles.

Given the confines of the zip-from-the-back costume, Evans jokes that there’s one thing audiences won’t see Captain America do — head to the bathroom. “Not to get too graphic,” he says, “but you’d better hope you’re on a nice schedule in that thing. There are all these zippers and buttons.” And he only sheds the suit with the help of a wardrobe entourage. “You could fight all day; you’re not getting out of it.”

Instagram that joint

A few weeks ago I signed up for it out of curiosity. I officially made it public on Sunday.

I didn’t like Instagram when it first showed up because I have friends who can’t take pictures for shit. Then the filters were all wrong and the photos they were sharing were just blurry out of focused crap.

Who wants to see that?

Now about three years later I finally got one. Not really to see bad photography, but for me to have a platform to share my awesome photography. This one is going to be just a chance for me to really reach out and reconnect with a hobby I care a lot about.

So yeah, what you see, like the above photo, is what you will get with my account. No selfies or anything. Just straight great photography.

“Crisis” has gotten me convinced to give the second episode a try

I was supposed to watch the pilot last week at a screening but another screening came up. However, I finally got to the pilot last night. Good enough to convince me to give the episode next week a try.

It’s like a mix of Battle Royale and hostages and stuff. I’m confused a little so I have to follow along and see what it is all about.

But the decision to end the first episode with a cover of “Nothing Else Matters” by Scala & Kolacny Brothers was hauntingly beautiful. You got me.

KTLA’s reaction to earthquake proves that LA news coverage is a joke

I felt it while I was sleeping. It woke me up. I was like “meh” and went back to sleep. It was a 4.4 magnitude. But if you know anything about earthquakes, that’s not a big deal. But look at those clowns react. My goodness, it’s like they’re not from California.

And how they reported and covered it.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Producer Hints at Potential Movie, Teases Finale at Paleyfest

Samuel:

Toying with my emotions. Just tell us who A is. Also, they were in LA?

Originally posted on Variety:

If there’s one thing the stars of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” have mastered, it’s the art of keeping a secret.

Joined by exec producers I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and Joseph Dougherty at Sunday afternoon’s PaleyFest sesh, the “Liars” gave the audience only a few hints and kept the details of the upcoming season finale mostly under wraps.

The packed house at the Dolby Theatre caught a glimpse of a scene from Tuesday’s finale, but King only revealed that the episode will be “emotionally exhausting to watch.” She didn’t, however, rule out the possibility of a “PLL” movie.

“That comes up all the time and I would love to create (a movie),” she said.

TV Guide senior writer Damian Holbrook incited shrieks from the enthusiastic fans as he introduced the panelists, who dished on their co-stars, their most awkward scenes and being a part of the most tweeted-about show…

Arguments and debates: John 3:23-25

Samuel:

This is so refreshing to read. My mom would always tell me that “One who argues with a fool, is the fool.”

Originally posted on The River Walk:

Debate Edit

At this time John the Baptist was baptizing at Aenon, near Salim, because there was plenty of water there; and people kept coming to him for baptism. (This was before John was thrown into prison.) A debate broke out between John’s disciples and a certain Jew over ceremonial cleansing. (John 3:23-25)

Daily Bible Reading: Numbers 14:1 – 15:41

Relate: Neal Stephenson said that “arguing with anonymous strangers on the internet is a sucker’s game because they always turn out to be (or to be indistinguishable from) self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time.” They say that being argumentative is a typical trait of being a teenager and if that is true then I took “being a teenager” to the extreme. I shudder to think what I would have done were the internet as commonplace in the nineties as it is now. Even in my college days when I did not…

Rashard Mendenhall’s reason for retiring furthers his awesomeness

If you have not read that, please do. Retiring at the age of 26, the prime age of any NFL player, is shocking. But after reading that the other day, it once again confirmed to me that Rashard Mendenhall is one of the most intelligent people ever in NFL history.

There are other players that have left the game early, but the way he articulates himself and more importantly, his understanding life outside of sports, fame and fortune, is admirable.

I have always been a fan of Mendenhall since his “controversial” Osama Bin Laden tweets.

“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” so far is pretty good

So I finally saw the first episode. It’s so hard to really take this show at first because I want to compare it to the movie. But they are playing out the beginning of the film, and there are some little differences here and there.

But so far, my curiosity of how this is going to be different than the movie has me hooked. It’s not exactly the same so I want to see where it goes from here.

I will give the second episode a go.
