An in depth look at my obsession with film and TV. If you like my original reviews, feedback is appreciated.

Who I Follow

OK, to all my followers and hopefully any reasonable people out in the world: If Michael Egan is telling the truth, Bryan Singer deserves to be locked up. If Bryan Singer settles, that doesn’t mean an admission of guilt. That could mean Fox would be forcing him to settle. Without a doubt, this will probably ruin any chances for Bryan to direct a large scale action film for the foreseeable future, no matter what the truth is. This is a civil case and the lawyers should not have made a press release for one thing. Also, the lawsuit is much more detailed and graphic then the one filed back in 2000. The lawsuit back in 2000 doesn’t even have Singer’s name anywhere. If Michael Egan is a heterosexual, he still went to that house knowing it was a gay party and willing to do things to get a part for a film. Now, if it is true, that he was raped, there is no way of knowing this for sure. Eye witness testimony fourteen years later is pretty unreliable. If he was drugged and raped, then yes, Bryan Singer is sick and him and EVERYONE who was involved should be brought to justice, but there is so little evidence that remains. I also like to note, that the reason this is coming out now is because the statue of limitations has changed in Hawaii so they can now bring this out to light again. It is purely coincidental that Bryan has a film coming out right at this time. It helps that Michael and his lawyers can now ruin Bryan more, especially if he did do it. Bryan even has a background in having boy toys (but in each case they all have been of age in the state that he used them). Bryan may be a creep around young boys, he may not be. I am not going to judge Bryan on his taste in guys or what he does with them, unless it is illegal, which there is little evidence at the moment besides hearsay to support anything other than giving out illegal substances and underage drinking. (But doesn’t that happen all the time in New York and California? I mean I am sure most of you all have drank underage.)

So to wrap up: reasonable doubt in both cases. Both could be to blame, or just Singer or just Egan. We don’t know. It shouldn’t have been released by the lawyers, it should have been kept secret until much more facts have been released. We weren’t there, we don’t know what happened. take a step back, and just enjoy the new X-Men film.

The focus on eyes emphasizes the overall desperation for secrets and trust that characterizes both the FBI and the criminals. On close ups, having Jodie Foster look slightly off camera and all the other actors straight on, subtly highlights the fact that most of the film is from Clarice’s point of view and that others struggle to know her intimately. When she finally confides in Lecter and tells him about her childhood and the lambs, she looks straight into the camera for one of the first times [x]

I think the observation is sound, but my interpretation is slightly different. Eye contact demonstrates confidence and power, not always intimacy. The film is not all in her POV. The film has other POVs in it and they all highlight Clarice’s own inadequacies. Clarice looks slightly off screen so she doesn’t have to show her true self. She looks directly at it when she is at her most powerful and her most frail. Either way, the importance of the eyes in the several closeups is unmistakable.

Ever since it was announced, I have been anxiously awaiting the return of Bryan Singer, one of my favorites, to the Director’s chair of the X-Men franchise. When I heard that his intent was to build upon what he had created in X-Men and X-Men 2 (X-Men 3 didn’t happen…because Brett Ratner), and…

I am not saying I defend Bryan or that I believe the allegations thrown against him. This was fifteen years ago. We weren’t there. This will be almost hard to investigate due to the amount of time to see if they even had a relationship let alone if it was abusive. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, but there are now very few ways of getting to the bottom of this. I have seen comments that say this “aspiring actor” is probably out for a cash grab and attention as well. I have also seen so much hatred against Bryan. It looks like the Salem Witch Trials in some instances. Someone is accused and without thought we let out emotions carry us and we just want to burn him at the stake. (Not in the eyes of the government but in the eyes of Public Opinion.) Yes, the government has not done its due diligence to safe guard the victim. But this case seems to be special, different from David O’Russell who has publicly apologized and gotten psychological help from what he did. Different from Roman Polanski who just ran away from America so he wouldn’t be thrown into jail. Different from Woody Allen who got away with it. (I am not defending any of their actions either.)  Also, the report says that there were several other men involved in this whole thing, but no one else has been named, just Bryan. The lawyer has said he will be making more accusations and filing more charges against people, but who are they? How could this kid not have been able to name anyone else other than Bryan? Shouldn’t he have given the police a list of names? where is this list if it does exist? We don’t know. All in all I just think we need to take a step back, breathe, and wait for more evidence that will lead us to FACTS rather than being quick to judge the situation from either stand point, outsiders as we are.

this show will always never be not funny
