TwitterFacebook

Kim Kardashian might have just posted the greatest Instagram caption of all time. 

True to form, Kim posted an important update on the status of her hair colour. It’s now blonde FYI, in case you missed the memo. 

But, alongside this pretty standard Kardashian Instagram are the words “I’d go blonde for that D…😂.”

Hold the phone, Kimberly. Did you just say what we think you did? 

I’d go blonde for that D…😂

Is Kim K referring to catching some d***, or is this a sweet innocent coincidence? Let’s investigate.  Read more…

/Answers: The Greatest Movie Heists

Logan Lucky photo

Every week in /Answers, we attempt to answer a new pop culture-related question. Tying in with the upcoming release of Logan Lucky, this week’s edition asks “What is your favorite movie heist scene or sequence?”

Ethan Anderton: Mission: Impossible III

The Mission: Impossible franchise may not immediately come to mind when you think of heist movies since they’re action adventure and spy movies first. But each of the Mission: Impossible moves involves at least one heist where the cast breaks into a seemingly impossible to penetrate facility. While the original is a staple of cinema, it’s been a little hard to appreciate as much knowing that the room containing the NOC list has every security measure imaginable, except video surveillance. But I digress.

For me, I think one of the best heists comes from Mission: Impossible III, when the IMF team has to break into the Vatican City in order to retrieve the MacGuffin known as the Rabbit’s Foot. The only way to do that is to kidnap the man who has it in his possession, the dangerous, underground criminal Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). It’s a task that requires Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his entire team to pull it off, and it also requires the use of the staple IMF mask technology, which makes for a great scene where Tom Cruise slowly is transformed into Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The scene is exciting, suspenseful, and makes great use of the team dynamic that all Mission: Impossible movies have at their center, despite being considered Tom Cruise vehicles. Plus, there’s a great moment of levity when Ethan Hunt, as Owen Davian, and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) have a casual exchange right in the middle of the heist.

Jacob Hall: Rififi

Like the grizzled, older gangster coming out retirement to teach the young punks a thing or two, Jules Dassin’s Rififi remains one of the greatest crime movies ever made over 60 years after it was made. Released in 1955, this noir classic is a noteworthy heist movie for two reasons. First, the big job isn’t the climax of the film – it takes place in the second act, with the rest of the film dealing with the fallout of the “perfect crime.” Second, the big job practically is the entire second act of the film, running 28 minutes and showcasing a jewel heist in such agonizing detail that the film was reportedly banned by French police for being a little too real.

It’s a remarkable heist (sandwiched in a remarkable movie), made all the more breathless and intense because it plays out without dialogue or score. To slip past a vibration-sensitive security system, the crew of criminals use a specialized set of tools to break in through the ceiling and proceed to not make a peep as they carry out the robbery. This means every sound we do hear – a deep breath or the tap of a hammer or even a misplaced footstep – is enough to make you leap out of your seat.

It’s a thrilling experience to watch characters who are good at their jobs do them well. And while Rififi ultimately punishes its characters for their crimes, for 30 minutes, we’re on their side, on the edge of our seats, watching as they showcase true professionalism. Sure, it’s professionalism in service of illegal activity, but you have to admire the nerve and the precision. And that applies to Dassin’s filmmaking, too.

Vanessa Bogart: The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)

“Do you wanna dance? Or do you wanna dance?” Aside from being one of the sexiest movies ever made (That sheer dress! Those marble stairs! Is it getting warm in here?), the 199 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair boasts not one, but two of the greatest art heist scenes in cinema. And although there is a lot to admire about the opening heist of the $ 100 million San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight by Monet, the heist that has never been matched in my mind,is the one at the end, the one that adds insult to injury: the theft of The Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil by Edouard Manet.

The heist of the Monet that the film is centered round is impressive, and definitely an intricate affair. It is executed so meticulously that even though the detectives on Crown’s tail know it was him, they can’t seem to prove it. And yet, somehow, this $ 100 million job isn’t the most impressive heist in the film. The whole film is a perfect game of cat and mouse made even more enticing with a passionate love affair. Watching Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan toy with one another almost makes you forget about the expensive object at the film’s center. However, Catherine is a serious woman, and through several misunderstandings, Crown knows, anticipates, and counts on her betraying him to the police. He tells her the exactly when he will return to the museum to replace the stolen Monet.

Upon entering the museum in a grey overcoat and red tie, Crown makes sure all eyes are on him, before placing a bowler hat on his head, the perfect image of the figure in The Son of Man, a painting by Rene Magritte that has been shown more than once throughout the film. Crown utters “let’s play ball,” and walks calmly but purposefully into the crowd. To the police, this seems like it will play out as a simple arrest, but that calm sense of inevitable victory is quickly shattered when they realize that Crown has no intention of being caught. Set exquisitely to the tune of ‘Sinnerman’ by Nina Simone, men with grey overcoats, red ties, and bowler hats fill the corridors of the museum, making it impossible to determine Crown from the lookalikes. It is a perfectly orchestrated dance. Once the distraction is set, Crown changes clothes and sneaks into the impressionist wing under the cover of smoke bombs and a fire alarm.

The metal guards close over the paintings to protect them from the sprinklers, but they stop just shy of the Pissaro painting that Crown had so generously donated just three days following the Monet heist. The water begins to wash away the paint exposing the stolen Monet beneath it. That son of a bitch. Before the detectives and the audience can even begin to comprehend the fact that the painting had been there the whole time, the metal gates open, and the Manet that Catherine had admired earlier was gone.

The key to a great heist film is to fool the detectives and the audience. Thomas Crown managed to do so with class and a wicked sense of humor. You can’t help but smirk and applaud. You have been fooled in the most delightful way.

GQ Magazine suffers the internet’s ire for not naming Serena Williams ‘the greatest tennis player of all time’

TwitterFacebook

You messed up big time, GQ.

Tennis star Roger Federer is currently gracing the cover of GQ Magazine‘s 2017 Style Bible in which he posed for pictures and was interviewed about what comes next in his impressive career. The magazine promoted the issue on Twitter with several tweets including one where they wrote about catching up with “the greatest tennis player of all time.”

And that didn’t sit well with many people.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Clip: Who Is the Greatest Pilot in the Universe?

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

This past weekend, Nickelodeon had their annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which meant it was a prime time for studios to advertise their latest blockbusters to the coveted younger demographic. The new footage unfurled included the newest trailer for Wonder Woman (which you can watch right here), as well as the first clip from Transformers: The Last Knight. But Marvel Studios also brought a treat for all of the kids who tuned in.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted another clip featuring everyone’s favorite ragtag team of space criminals, and this time there’s a bit of a disagreement between Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon regarding who is the best pilot in the universe. The argument escalates to the point of one particularly gross threat that brings Drax the Destroyer into the fray.

Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 clip after the jump.

The comedy in this particular scene feels a bit childish, but that’s probably why it was chosen to play at the Kids’ Choice Awards. Just recently another Guardians of the Galaxy 2 clip debuted featuring a bit of gross humor, but James Gunn already confirmed that it wouldn’t be in the movie. However, I don’t think that will be the cast with this clip since it has some finished visual effects for Rocket Raccoon, the ship’s interface, and more.

Though the discussion about “turds” isn’t the most clever of comedy, despite how enthusiastic Drax the Destroyer is about his own bowel movements, it doesn’t have me worried about the quality of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first film had some goofy comedy as well, and even though the movie will undoubtedly be PG-13, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some stuff that’s funny for the younger viewers. This is a Disney-owned franchise after all.

If you’d like to see more from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, check out the most recently released trailer, which finally introduced us to Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s father, Ego, the living planet.

Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 lands in theaters May 5.

New space pics show off the greatest kitten toe beans in all the universe

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f369567%2f065fb590-96c2-4af3-a7dd-3c119d954e14

As if you had any doubt that cats are the original space cadets. 

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) proves once and for all that cats and space belong together, releasing a new image that showcases some glorious cat toe beans in space. 

The Cat’s Paw Nebula (as it’s legit called) was first viewed by UK scientist John Herschel in 1837, according to the ESO. Might he could only make out the brightest “toepad.” Since then, the full extent of the space paw has become visible and impressed humans with its “God’s kitten about to swipe some cosmic crap off the universe’s coffee table” likeness.  Read more…
