Elsa doesn’t sound entirely convinced when she tells him, “Fear is also there for a biological reason: I mean, fight or flight, right?”

Kim Kardashian West hopes to resolve Caitlyn Jenner feud

We’re just taking a breather. If you’re keeping up with the Kardashian-Jenner feud, Kim Kardashian West stopped by   The View   Monday morning to update fans on her relationship with Caitlyn Jenner, who was married to her mother, Kris Jenner, for 22 years. It’ll work out.”
The reality star elaborated on the source of the rift between her family and Caitlyn Jenner, whose memoir included accounts about   Kris Jenner that Kardashian West has called “hurtful” and “unfair.” She told the hosts of   The View, “I was a little shocked by putting things out there that just weren’t true or didn’t make sense or were hurtful when I feel like, at the end of the day, my mom and Caitlyn had a 25-year relationship, and you just have to have some respect for it.”

“I don’t want to discredit her feelings or her account, but when all of us there were witnessing some things and seeing things really different, it was just a little bit surprising to me,” she said. “She’ll always be my stepdad and always be a person that raised me and taught me so much in life,” she said. Kardashian West admitted that she had not spoken to Caitlyn in the last couple of months, but also expressed hope that they would mend the rift soon. “We’re not that kind of family. We’ll get it together. “She’ll always be a part of me,” Kardashian West said. Kardashian West asserted that she believes things will blow over eventually because their family is so close. “I’ll never forget what Caitlyn instilled in us as kids and was a part of who I am today.”

And so in this scene, Kate is going to be going down on you.” And it’s just like, Whoa! Kirshner: Of lesbians having sex. As it turns out, the cast and crew took these very seriously. Beals: Do you guys remember that Rose [Troche, a co-executive producer on the show] made us a video? Beals: We had to watch a sex video because we had to do all these sex scenes. Mia Kirshner: These girls said that my breasts were the ninth character. When EW reunited the cast, they talked love scenes with other women and doing sex scene research.

Last Man Standing won’t be revived on CMT

Nevertheless, ABC stood by its decision to end the series, pointing out that it also canceled liberal-leaning series as well. Whether or not the show will find another home remains to be seen. RELATED:   Last Man Standing: 7 high points of Tim Allen’s canceled series
After six seasons, the ax   fell on   Last Man Standing   around the time of Upfronts in May. Show Full Article EW has learned that talks between CMT and 20th Century Fox to revive the recently canceled Tim Allen comedy won’t be moving forward due to a disagreement over the show’s cost. Alas, ABC’s   Last Man Standing   won’t be joining   Nashville on CMT. The two parties began discussing reviving ABC sitcom last week; however, at the time, insiders close to the negotiations told EW a deal was a “long shot.” “It’ll either come together quickly or die on the vine,” said an insider, adding that the parties were just kicking the show’s tires to see if it made sense both financially and creatively.

The Slants celebrate Supreme Court victory for ‘the rights of all marginalized communities’

The Slants are Ken Shima, left, Simon “Young” Tam, Yuya Matsdua and Joe X. The band’s most recent EP, by the way, is   titled “The Band That Must Not Be Named.” It was dedicated, Tam said,   to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Jiang. wrote that   the provision violated “a bedrock 1st Amendment principle: Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend.” The court took on   the case late in   September and   arguments were heard   in January. Said Tam, “The establishment of an Asian American band was a political act in of itself, even though we never considered ourselves as a political group.”In addition to offering up the lyrics of its song “From the Heart” (“Sorry if you take offense / You made up rules and played pretend /   We know you fear change /   It’s something so strange / But nothing’s gonna   get in our way”), the band celebrated in a way appropriate to musicians: It released an extended version of the music video for “Level Up,” embedded below. (Sarah Giffrow / The Slants / AFP Photo)The Asian American band the Slants celebrated its hard-earned Supreme Court victory Monday, saying the fight to trademark its racially charged name “has always been much bigger than our band: it’s been about the rights of all marginalized communities to determine what’s best for ourselves.”The journey to trademark a name that has historically been a racial slur was nearly eight years in the making and “excruciating,” the band said on Facebook. “[W]e’re beyond humbled and thrilled to have won this case at the Supreme Court,” wrote band frontman   Simon Tam, who filed the original lawsuit against the Patent and Trademark Office.”During the fight, we found the Trademark Office justifying the denial of rights to people based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, and political views, simply because they disagreed with the message of these groups.”Indeed, the decision —   which struck down the “disparagement clause” of 1946’s   Lanham Act, the   federal statute governing trademarks —   is seen as likely to pave the way for the Washington Redskins to trademark that name.Speaking for the 8-0 majority, Justice Samuel A.

Added Berg: “You can’t cut corners or have 95 percent of what’s on screen be completely original and inspired and then have five percent something you bought at a store. Trek fans think they already know what it looks like from the trailer. “There’s is so much artistry and custom craftsmanship that go into every prop, every costume, every set,” Harberts explained.

Pixar head explains how Cars 3 brought back Paul Newman

“So in telling that story, therefore we had to say Doc Hudson would be an important part of this.”
RELATED: Pixar’s upcoming slate of films

As the director of the first Cars film, it was Lasseter who spent quality time with Newman in the recording booth, getting to know the acting icon — and passionate racer. “As we were developing Cars 3, we loved the idea of McQueen in this stage in his career as a veteran of the sport, seeing all these young racecars coming in and initially fearing them as competition, then eventually recognizing the value both to the young racer but also to yourself in mentoring,” says Lasseter. In a weird way, I really relate to McQueen. Although Doc has passed away in the story, Lightning hears the Fabulous Hudson Hornet’s voice in flashbacks and visions, which required some old dialogue from Newman — and some, completely new vocalizations. “In a way, he mentored me in racing because car racing was his true life’s passion, and I made sure that whenever he came into the recording booth, we were recording everything,” the director recalls. So as we started Cars 3, we went back to every recording we did on Cars 1 and catalogued and listened to it all, and ended up with a lot of material that we could use. Since Newman was such an avid lover of the first film, the actor’s family was, as Lasseter puts it, “thrilled” to approve the posthumous move: “We wanted to approach it very respectfully. Once a legend, always a legend — that’s why it’s both jubilant and jarring to hear the voice of Paul Newman, who died in 2008 from lung cancer, once again as wizened retired racer Doc Hudson in Cars 3. It’s from that same place of love and respect.”

Show Full Article Cars 3 finds an aging Lightning, written off by his peers following a devastating crash, reconsidering the advice of his retired teacher Doc, who himself experienced that same contention in his career. And although the decision was made for Doc not to appear in 2011’s Cars 2, Disney and Pixar animation story chief John Lasseter said the choice to bring Doc — and Newman — back for Cars 3 was simply essential to the film’s story. “In between takes, he would tell me stories about great races, and you could hear the passion in his voice. It’s almost like Lightning McQueen’s love of Doc Hudson is my love of Paul Newman. Lines that were cut from the original film and never used, as well as some of those pieces from in between takes. It was out of the love for Paul Newman that I had. Playing the former mentor of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in the first Cars was Newman’s last major role before he died.

Orange Is the New Black: Danielle Brooks says season 7 could be her last

That’s such an unfortunate place to be in. She was always the one on the forefront putting her voice out there and saying, “You will hear what I’m feeling and the loss that you have caused me and my daughter and his mother.”
As challenging as it was to shoot this, the work was done. Taystee went left, right, up, down. What did you read or what did you do?” I just watched the clips of Diamond Reynolds, who was his girlfriend, speaking to reporters and talking to all of these news outlets. I look forward to many more exciting scenes like the ones that we end with in episode 13. It was a lot of fun. All you have to do is put your uncle, your brother — I have a brother who’s 22 — your father in [their] place. I think she would’ve said, “He’s not worth it. Who knows? How do you feel about it? [It was] almost like Christmas where you want to sneak a gift the night before. Orange is the New Black‘s fifth season was a big one for Danielle Brooks,   and the actress is already thinking about when it’ll be time for her final bow. I’m very proud of the work that myself, the cast, crew, and writers have done this season, especially because it parallels the world that we live in. It’s this thing of thinking you won’t have these magic moments again with these two characters. They are able to stand together and choose to fight the next chapter. This season we got to see her stand up and have her moments where she feels like she’s going to lose it and crumble. One of the big surprises of the season was the moving flashback that revealed how Taystee and Poussey first met. When can we win? I just want to live in the moment and digest it when it comes. Negotiations with MCC fell apart because Taystee wouldn’t budge on the Bailey issue. The 27-year-old actress moved to the center of the action as her character Taystee pursued justice not only for her friend Poussey (Samira Wiley), who was killed by a guard at the end of season 4, but for her fellow inmates in negotiations with MCC (Management & Correction Corporation). It really is devastating and it feels like we still have this noose around our necks as black people. I feel like a big part of Taystee’s motives this year is to fight for justice but also believe that the system can change. I want to get to play all different moods, shapes, and colors. It actually breaks my heart that I wasn’t able to really just use my imagination as we do as artists. Is that how you envisioned their first meeting? I don’t think Poussey would’ve wanted her to shoot him at the end. Even though we see the girls not get what they wanted, I still am happy the writers did leave us on a hopeful journey together. It was challenging. I never thought to think about how they met because I’ve known Samira for so long now, and because I’ve known her for so long and the way in which they’ve written these two characters, it feels like they’ve known each other for just as long. She found her salvation in not killing Piscatella [Brad William Henke]. I am not like you. (Shortly before we spoke, news broke that the Minnesota officer who shot Philando Castile last July was acquitted, which Brooks compared to the fact that everyone in power on the show is reluctant to charge Corrections Officer Bailey with murder in the wake of Poussey’s   riot-sparking death.)

Even though the season ends with the women facing down death, do you take comfort in the fact that they’re doing it together? Show Full Article The tumultuous season ended with Taystee and nine other women facing down death together as they hid in Frieda’s (Dale Soules) bunker and waited for the police to assault their temporary sanctuary. Now, I’d rather wait and I’m opening the gift wrap slowly, because I’m trying to take it all in and I know that we’re getting closer to the end — or at least, I think. I want to play all different kinds of layers of a person, which I do think I got to do. By not killing him, she figured out what justice really means and it has to do much more with character than a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye. I can rise above the wickedness, the ugliness.”
I think Taystee won in that way. It’s sort of hard to escape this reality because it just feels like a cloud that’s always hanging over us and then to have something like this, it just makes it even harder. I’d rather be putting that energy out into the world. Sometimes I think of acting in different fabrics. That’s a big part of it. For me, my work was sort of done. Six episodes in, I get to act with my girl again. Have you had time to watch it? Is there a general sense in the cast that season 7 might be the end, or do you hope Netflix could renew for another season? Definitely. Moore], and settings were on fire. I think you find all of that in that one scene. I don’t know. How can I get involved in politics or local government or [how we] choose judges?” We just have to get more involved and be more informed on a much more [local] scale that affects our communities…and will ultimately affect the greater scale. What was your first reaction when you read that scene? She’s pulling out all of the stops and doing all the research and speaking up for these women in hopes that this thing can change. What was it like to approach this prison set you’ve been on for five seasons in a different way? Was committing to that hopefulness hard some days, or did you find it easy because it gave you a reason to keep hope alive for yourself, too? There were a few times when I felt like I was in an action movie or something because there were like bombs going off, I got to lift Uzo [Aduba]’s body with Adrienne [C. Actually, today I got a little pissed off, honestly—I just heard the news on the radio about the Philando Castile [case] and the officer being acquitted. You know, Taystee goes on that journey this season of really fighting for justice and trying to have Bailey [Alan Aisenberg] locked up, because in her eyes he is a criminal and for that to not happen says a lot. I don’t know if I want to do that because I have a lot in me and a lot that I want to share with the world and different characters I want to be able to bring to life. I want to find beauty at the end of the road. It’s not over. I think she learned that she’s capable of much more than she ever imagined. Who knows? That’s sort of where my head is right now, and it kind of sucks because you’re telling this fictional story for six or seven months, embodying what it is to lose somebody and what is it to fight. I know that’s the route that she’s chosen, which is hope and faith. But I do think the hope part matters — especially right now. All we can do is be hopeful and active as we’ve seen Taystee do. While you were filming the season, was it hard to go from reading these tragic headlines every day to performing these scenes where Taystee is fighting for justice— and at times in vain because of how rigid the system is? I’d rather just wait and see, especially now that we’re getting closer to the end of the road than we were in the beginning. People always ask, “How did you get into character? To me, it was so similar to that episode 5 scene with Taystee when she doesn’t let Judy King [Blair Brown] speak, because that’s the same thing I saw with her; she never let her lawyers speak for her. I want to have hope for America. Instead, it felt so real. I can’t say that I wouldn’t want to do the other route because, as an actor, I wanna play everything. Although some progress was made, it all fell apart at the last minute when a SWAT team finally barged into Litchfield to end the three-day-long riot in the season 5 finale. We came back in July 2016 when the Philando Castile incident occurred, so we were going right into work dealing with that particular incident. We’re all in it together. That was so much fun, and just getting to feel like a true badass and getting to do things that I hadn’t gotten to do yet as an actor in a physical way was a lot of fun for me. Frieda says it just right when she’s like, “We’re gonna stand together and hold our dignity just like Taystee has.” So there is comfort in that. It seems that the line between fiction and reality is blurred…
It’s so blurred at the moment. But also with the reality of we don’t know what’s going to happen. So, my heart is a little heavy right now, to be honest. Last Friday, EW spoke with Brooks on the phone about   whether she sees herself staying on the show beyond season 7,   Samira Wiley’s cameo in episode 6, and the season’s real-world parallels. Netflix
Litchfield was in chaos this season. Yet, here I am. We could go beyond seven seasons. I just find it brave of the writers to go in that direction instead of just choosing to have this patched up, happy-go-lucky, tied-in-a-nice bow ending, because that’s the thing: We’re still dealing with issues like that. I know you don’t have any idea what’s coming up in season 6, but what do you hope Taystee gets to do next season? My first reaction was, “Smart writing. There’s this inherent optimism in Taystee’s actions this season. He’ll get his.” Which we see him do. DANIELLE BROOKS: Yes, I have gotten to see season 5. Yeah, it’s wicked how the system works. At first, I was dying for each script and wanting to know what happens next. The fight for realizing that all lives do matter — specifically, black lives mattering — is not over. I just hope that’s what we gain with telling stories that matter in that way — we can also take from these women and say, “How can I stand with my brother and my sister? When can we just be as equal as anyone else? Don’t get me wrong! I just felt like that showed the core of what their friendship is: These two people really trying to be there for one another and not wanting anything in return but love, a friendship, laughter, and joy. It was so exciting and fun for me. To be honest, I don’t know if I want to play an inmate past that. I don’t know what’s going to happen in season 6, nor do I know the climate of the world in the rest of 2017. When it comes to the society that we live in right now, I’d rather as an actor be playing that part of it. I just appreciate the show speaking to the issues that we’re dealing with. After seven, I think it might be time for me to spread my wings, but I don’t want to speak too fast on that. To get to come to work and act out that first scene was a lot of fun for both of us — so much fun that there were moments where I was forgetting my lines because I couldn’t wrap my head around [it]. How can I be there for a family that’s lost their loved one? We see at the end of it that they stand together and now she has a group of women that are standing for justice and she doesn’t feel as alone as she did earlier in the episode. When will justice be served for us and when can we get a moment to breathe and live in a fair world?…I’m just hurting. She found her voice. Then, this season comes out and here we are with another situation where justice is not served. How cool is it that they met in the library? Given that, do you think she comes out with any kind of a win at the end of the season? Definitely the latter, because I think when someone has gone through as much as Taystee has gone through, and especially when someone is dealing with grief, you kind of have two different routes that you can take: You can choose to take the death route where you are living in misery and depression and feeling like you have no reason to live, or you can say I’m going to take life even more seriously and cherish the life that I’ve been given. Kudos to Lauren Morelli.” How cool is it for them to have created Amanda and McKenzie [in their] first encounter? SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers from   Orange Is the New Black‘s entire fifth season. We have until seven for sure. It’s choosing to sometimes — not all the time — say, “I am bigger than how you see me. She definitely came out with a win. I had a good time with that. Not even win, but just be! Right now, my heart really goes out to the Castile family for having to feel like they’re not getting justice for this senseless death. Oh, that question… The reason I say that is because my imagination is expansive, but once I see what the writers have written, I’m always taken aback and so much more excited about what they’ve planned and what I’ve come up with in my head.

Trailers From Hell gets cheesy with ‘Ninja 3: The Domination’

Here are some of the ninja movies the made: Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja, American Ninja, American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt, American Ninja 4: Annihilation, and American Ninja 5, which had no subtitle. Take, for example, the site’s most recent choice, the 1984 martial arts sequel, Ninja III: The Domination.

But sometimes they tackle a movie whose qualities are, let us say, of a less classically “good” nature. “Now that is a symbol of quality,” dclares guru and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Josh Olson (A History of Violence) as the Cannon Films logo turns up onscreen at the start of the trailer. “Perhaps I should say, a symbol of a quality.
