Think Like A Man

“Think Like A Man,” the new Tyler Perry romantic comedy [Update: based on a book by Steve Harvey] about black women and men, has allegedly been banned in France because officials say the film is not diverse enough. According to blogger Fabienne Flessel at the blog Global Voices:

Surprising as it may be, the answer lies in the fact that the film has an all-black cast. French cinema is often pointed at for not fairly displaying all components of the country’s multiethnic population. 

It is unclear, though, whether “Think Like A Man” has literally been banned, or if it just is not being screened. But the Global Voices blogger and several other French-speaking bloggers quoted/translated in his article seem adamant that someone in a position of power in France is uninterested in promoting films by and about black folks. One blogger claims “Tyler Perry’s movies are never scheduled in any French movie theaters or are only released in DVDs, even thought he has been used to leading the U.S. box office.”  Keep reading »

Smith College turns out tons of smart, plucky, independent and driven women, so it’s no surprise that they chose actress Jane Lynch as their 2012 commencement speaker. Equally not surprising: Lynch gave one hell of a speech, offering up humor, wisdom and some trademark Jane Lynch charm. “Today is all about you,” she told the graduates, “but just a little bit about me.” She encouraged graduates to accept what was in front of them, and then to do something with it. “If life gives you lemons, grab it by the horns and drive — and yes, i just mixed three metaphors. Remember, I was a C-student.”

Hate goodbyes? Total crybaby? Then prepare yourself, because Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” send-off made this goodbye-hating crybaby bawl. Seriously, I cried harder watching this than I did at my own high school graduation — and “SNL” didn’t even use that “125,600 525,600 Minutes” song from “Rent.” The only thing that takes the edge off Wiig’s departure is knowing that she’s off to do even greater things.

The CW Is Developing A “Hunger Games”-Like Show Based On The Young Adult Novel “The Selection”

The huge success of The Hunger Games film adaptation did not go unnoticed. Hollywood is currently doing everything it can to figure out how to replicate the success of that project with their own and that includes scooping up similar young adult book series. In steps Kiera Cass’ The Selection and the CW network. 

Amazingly enough, The Selection just hit shelves last month so Cass must be thrilled that a network is already picking up her book. The Selection is the first in a planned trilogy that revolves around America Singer, a young woman living in a future dystopian society in which 35 girls are entered into a lottery/competition to be queen.
