Meet Sam Carr
Huffington Post - about 1 year
There's something infectious about Sam Carr's laugh; if I made a bad joke or sarcastic comment, he'd laugh, then I'd laugh. We'd originally wanted to sit down and talk about his channel, how he got his start on YouTube, and his inspirations and goals, but we spent two hours talking about everything else (from music to traveling to life in general). The 20-year old British student and filmmaker grew up close to London and is grateful for the accessibility he has had to the city. "I've visited it loads for many different reasons and every single time I end up finding somewhere new that I haven't explored before, even though I'm usually there a lot of the time now for university," he says. "I have the biggest love for traveling, I just love exploring somewhere new and seeing what the world is really like and it's definitely something that I aim to do a lot more of as I get older." -- Sam Carr Sam explains that he takes his camera everywhere just in case something worth ...

Pretty Much Every Young Male Actor Is Auditioning To Play Han Solo
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The search for a new Han Solo is rapidly becoming America's biggest thirst trap.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, an astonishing 2,500 actors are auditioning to play a young Solo in Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's upcoming, as-yet-untitled "Star Wars" spinoff movie, which is slated for release in May 2018. We're not talking about randos lining up outside the Disney lot here. At least not exclusively. Many of the hottest (young, white, male) actors in Hollywood are gunning for the part: Miles Teller, Logan Lerman, Dave Franco, Ansel Elgort, Ed Westwick, Rami Malek, Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Even Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" movies!  The plot of the movie -- which Lord and Miller are playfully referring to as "Red Cup," as in, you know, Solo cups -- is as yet a tightly kept secret. All we know so far is that it's an origin story for Han Solo.  But it's not hard to figure out why so many actors want the role. Playing Han Solo in 1977's "Star ...

Movie review: Percy Jackson and the sea of drowning
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 3 years
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is the second movie based on the popular series Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan. The first movie The Lightning Thief (2010) received negative reviews from fans of the book series and moviegoers alike, and it was expected that the sequel would not disappoint. Admittedly, Sea of Monsters is a slightly better cinematic interpretation. But don’t be surprised if the desire to leave the theatre midway persists throughout the movie. Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) is the son of a human and the Greek god Poseidon, who rules the waters. Along with other half-gods, Percy lives in Camp Half-Blood, which is protected from other mystical beings by a magical tree. (It was born of the sacrifice of chief god Zeus’s daughter, to save the other half-gods). The magic tree is, however, poisoned, leaving the half-bloods vulnerable. And they need the extreme healing properties of the Golden Fleece to heal it. But this is ea ...
