When I was nine years old, Star Trek came on. I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, “Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there’s a black lady on television and she ain’t no maid!”
I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.
I went to go watch The Dark Knight Rises with a handful of friends. There were three guys sitting in front of us and in the middle of the movie he pulled out his phone…twice.
After pulling it out one more time, I finally told him to put it away. And had he done it another time, I would have taken the phone and chucked it.
Another time I went to another movie (can’t quite remember what) and a guy and his girl were sitting next to a friend of mine. He kept pulling out his and then i just leaned over my friend and whispered to his girl, “could you tell him to put it away?”
She nudged him, I hope she’s embarrassed.
I always give them two chances, and then on the third it’s a warning. On the fourth, I will chuck the phone and if you’re being an ass I will chuck it at your head.
Oldboy will be re-released as a remastered version in South Korea theaters on November 21, in time for the film’s 10th anniversary.
Choi Min-sik: The eating of the octopus was actually my idea – at first in ‘Oldboy’, the traditional way of eating it would be to twist it around your chopsticks. However, to portray the psychological state of the character Oh Dae-su that felt insufficient and inappropriate and after being imprisoned for 15 years becoming a primordial being full of anger it felt more appropriate to simply grab it and eat it. So, I suggested that to Park Chan-wook and he accepted it.
In what has quickly become one of our favorite celebrity spottings, it is Tangled's Rapunzel and Eugene Flynn Rider at Coronation Day in Disney’s newest hit, Frozen! Even better, this was a surprise to Tangled’s co-director, Nathan Greno!
When King Conrad III defeated the Duke of Welf (in the year 1140) and placed Weinsberg under siege, the wives of the besieged castle negotiated a surrender which granted them the right to leave with whatever they could carry on their shoulders. The king allowed them that much. Leaving everything else aside, each woman took her own husband on her shoulders and carried him out. When the king’s people saw what was happening, many of them said that that was not what had been meant and wanted to put a stop to it. But the king laughed and accepted the women’s clever trick. “A king” he said, “should always stand by his word.”
