Rise Up

In Memoriam
Debbie Reynolds
&
Carrie Fisher
A Tragic Loss For The Family

Update: 12/28/2016: Debbie Reynolds, Carries mother, suffered a stroke and has also passed away.

Carrie Fisher personified the cinematic "Female Heroine" with her immortal portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars film franchise.
I don't know that she ever openly recognized that she was the quintessential female hero to her millions of adoring fans around the world.
She seemed to feel the role was more of a curse then a privilege.

But young girls around the world recognized it.
Women, men, children around the world recognized it.
And the world of cinema recognized it, was altered forever by it...
And she will be immortalized because of it.

Defending Batman V Superman

Defending Zach Snyder's masterwork Batman V Superman.

LISTEN WITH HEADPHONES

The visionary director has layed out the the foundation of what will be The Justice League...not to mention Snyder's reimagined DC Universe.
Forced to cut 30 integral minutes from the film shortly before the films release to avoid an R rating, unfairly bashed by critics...some who hadn't seen the film yet...Oldboy stands firm that the film is glorious visual accomplishment.

We won't EVER steer you wrong.

Grab the directors cut of the film and take it all in.
Bravo yo.
