How did “Serena” go from an Oscar contender to a pretender?
Hollywood News - almost 2 years
You probably aren’t aware of this, but a third Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence collaboration is opening in theaters this weekend. In fact, it has been available On Demand for weeks already. Yes, a film that stars arguably the two biggest stars in Hollywood had a VOD start before the impending limited release on Friday. What movie is this, you ask? Well, it’s Serena, a once incredibly high profile adaptation that had the likes of Darren Aronfosky and Angelina Jolie circling it. Initially slated to come out even before American Hustle, hoping to capitalize on the Cooper/Lawrence success in Silver Linings Playbook, this seemed like a strong Academy Awards player. So…what happened? For those of you not in the know about Serena, here’s a brief overview. It’s adapted from the novel of the same name by Ron Rash, directed by Oscar winning foreign filmmaker Susanne Bier, and written by Christopher Kyle. The plot concerns timber businessman George Pemberton (played by Cooper) and the machinati ...

Music previews for the week of June 26-July 2. WEDNESDAY 6/26 ALELA DIANE, HOLCOMBE WALLER (The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th) See My, What a Busy Week!, and our read our article on Alela Diane. CHRIS PUREKA, EMY REYNOLDS BAND (Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) Like the other singer/songwriters to whom she's typically compared—Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Neil Young—Chris Pureka's art thrives in emotionally desolate environments. Who can say why one person's interpretation of heartbreak and loneliness speaks so clearly to you while another's leaves you cold, or worse, bored? Thankfully, Pureka, who's recently relocated to Portland, is never boring. Actually, her sound has gotten bigger and more adventurous over the years, though the theme of fractured relationships has remained. Pureka's new EP, Chimera II, is just out, the follow-up to the first Chimera, which came out four years ago. Her impressive finger-picking is timeless, and evocative, ...

Walt Hawkins: What's (Christian) Love Got To Do With It?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's Pride Month, and I'd like to take a few moments to reflect on the onslaught of sweet, sweet Christian love flowing in our general direction, like so much water that has been magically transformed into wine. At times, it seems like it's all around us. Perhaps you've felt it, too. Christian love is a very complex thing. At first you might think it's hate, but Christians are incapable of hate, so it's really love. For instance, American Family Association mouthpiece Bryan Fischer claims that it's perfectly acceptable, nay mandatory, to discriminate against homosexuals because, after all, society discriminates against "people who rip off convenience stores, burgle houses, drive while drunk, eat the faces off homeless people, gun down servicemen on military bases, embezzle funds from their employers or clients, or beat their wives." Now, I've never even thought about doing any of those things, but, thanks to loving Christians like Bryan Fischer, I know that two consenting ...

Evan Adams: How Pastor Charles Worley Left Me Fearing For My Safety
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
As many fellow North Carolinians, both gay and straight, would likely agree, May 8 served as a difficult reminder that perhaps times have not changed as much as we thought, or at least not in the South. The disappointing numbers were arguably more disheartening on the heels of a Fayetteville, N.C. pastor's call to physically punish children for not conforming to his arbitrary conception of appropriate gender roles. And even though the clouds lifted, to an extent, after President Obama's declaration of open support for same-sex marriage, I'm once again forced to fear the state I call home. While the most recent call to violence from a pulpit, courtesy of Providence Road Baptist Church's pastor Charles Worley, is just another example of a fundamentalist's misinterpretation and exploitation of scripture, it is threatening and poses a legitimate risk for me and other members of the LGBT community: This particular threat, however, hits disturbingly close to home. ...

Jordan Bach: WATCH: How To Deal With Homophobic Religious Extremists
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Since it first aired on Charlotte CBS affiliate WBTV, the video featuring pastor Charles L. Worley from Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C. has incited anger around the world. This comes on the heels of several other disturbing anti-gay religious sermons that became viral on the Internet, including one from pastor Sean Harris, who told parents that they should hit their children if they begin to act gay. Every person on this planet has a voice, and we are all teachers; however big or small, each of us has a pulpit. These pastors choose to use their pulpit to spread pain, disharmony, and hate in the world. My social media platform is my pulpit, and I choose to use it to broadcast a message of peace, forgiveness, hope, and understanding -- with the intention of validating the millions of gay people who live, love, and learn in both big cities and small towns around the world. People ask me if I'm Christian, or Jewish, or Buddhist, or another religion. And I say, ...

Make plantation project truly realistic
Blue Ridge Now - almost 5 years
I read where landowner Louis Moore Bacon is going to totally reconstruct North Carolina's Brunswick County Orton plantation. Bacon is a direct descendent of the founding family. He (with a big bucketful of money) is going to restore the 8,500-acre antebellum rice plantation as it was in the 1700s. The rice plantation was the largest in the lower Cape Fear region. The rice fields will be restored as well. The new owner says he wants to make the plantation and grounds look exactly like the original was laid out. I certainly commend Mr. Bacon on his actions, but I am serious when I say this: In order for the plantation to look exactly as it did in the 1700s, Mr. Bacon is going to have to hire about 1,000 black actors and scatter them about. All would be doing hateful, back-breaking menial labor. You know, the kind of jobs the white folks didn't want to do. There will have to be some slave chains somewhere and, of course, a whipping post manned by a couple of actors portraying redne ...

The latest issue of EW appears to have a big story on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, as the magazine has posted 17 new images from the film for our viewing pleasure.  In addition to film stills and candid on-set shots, we also get a few “photoshoot”-style images, including Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace goofing around in their spacesuits (this is now my favorite Prometheus image ever).  We recently learned that the film will officially be rated R (rejoice!), and a new featurette entitled “Origins” went online yesterday for those of you who are strangely still on the fence about this one.

Warren J. Blumenfeld: A Call to Rewrite the Scripts in the Gender Drama
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Rev. Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church of Fayetteville, North Carolina loudly and vehemently lectured during his Sunday sermon (April 29, 2012) that parents must enforce strict gender role behaviors, their duty before God, on their children. "Dads," Harris commanded, "the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and you crack that wrist. Man up! Give him a good punch." He directed fathers to say to their sons: "Okay? You're not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male." He also instructed that parents should be "squashing that like a cockroach." He warned that "the word of God makes it clear that effeminate behavior is ungodly." And to parents directing their daughters, Harris shouted and flailed: "And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you rein her in, and you say, oh, no. oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you're going to ...

Confirmed: Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS Is Rated R (Updated)
Collider - almost 5 years
There's been heavy speculation over whether Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror film Prometheus would receive an R-rating.  The blockbuster film carries a big price tag, and a PG-13 rating would probably mean a much higher take at the box office.  However, when Steve spoke with 20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman, Rothman said the movie "will not be compromised either way," and the studio would accept whatever the MPAA handed down. According to a pre-sale ticket stub, the MPAA has handed down an R-rating for Prometheus.  I'm not sure if that automatically makes the movie better, but I'm happy for the opportunity to see an ambitious summer blockbuster with an R-rating.  The last R-rated sci-fi summer blockbuster I can recall is 2003's The Matrix Reloaded.  However, it's late and I'm tired, so I might be forgetting another R-rated summer sci-fi movie released since then. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.  Hit the jump to check out the ticket and the film's trailer. Update: Steve here.  20 ...
