Posted in: Matt Damon defends being cast for 'Great Wall' See in context

The thing is the Chinese had their chance to showcase Chinese talent in a blockbuster Chinese movie and they opted for an American. The role that was tailored for Mr. Damon didn't necessarily have to be a European mercenary.

TS is one of my favorite films of all time and Hara's performance in that film was brilliantly and elegantly understated. RIP

I don't see anything wrong with the publicity gimmick- perhaps, campy but not sleazy. The police crackdown was unnecessary, but then this is China...the Chinese government, that is.

How could a young boy ever comprehend that his own father tried to kill him? I hope he grows up into a well-adjusted young man sans emotional and psychological repercussions.

Hollywood A-listers love to appear in Japanese commercials, in US commercials not so much.

@commanteer Not so fast. Haven't you heard of stalkers and delusional women who believe the object of their obsession is in love with them too and whoever comes between them should be eliminated? Yeah, police should question the husband too, but just sayin'.

Posted in: Asian Games kick off 'Gangnam Style' See in context

Good on the South Koreans for cheering on their brothers to the north. It's kind of sad to think what the North Korean athletes's might have been thinking during the festivities. Do they feel envious of the South Koreans, deprived or forsaken. But then again, they don't know any better. They've lived all their lives under an autocratic/oppressive government and isolated society. For them their way of life is the norm. For me this is terribly sad.

Looks like a 'set up'/ made-for-tv to me. The guy looks like a SAG member. It was real pizza not a prop, though.

Posted in: George Clooney appears in new ad for Kirin beer See in context

As usual, it is one of those cryptic ads where you’re not sure what it’s all about and what the connection is between Clooney painting the roof of a rural cottage, smiling at a bird and drinking Kirin beer.

It's called celebrity placement.

That is what the Olympics is all about-triumph of the spirit. Asada fell, got up and held her head high. She is a true Olympian!

The Olympics are about testing one's limits, not about playing safe. Asada fell but she did not fail.

Now: Are you sure there are no dead bodies "stashed away" here somewhere?

It was not that the divers didn't resurface, it was that the skipper didn't appear at the meeting spot. Looks like that was what happened.

Eerily mysterious, almost supernatural. All 7 members of the diving expedition vanished without a trace. Shades of the Bermuda Triangle.

Posted in: Bieber is latest child star to battle public fall See in context

A lot of young singers today don't really have talent- what they sell is notoriety via provocative performances and choreographed scandals. Notoriety is what keeps them in demand and in the news.
