stop making biopics. they're always exactly the same and they're all awful, even the good ones. the only actually good music biopic is Walk Hard and i mean that 100% sincerely

All music biopics are gonna be shit, because to accurately portray musicians' lives, you need the rights to their music and no estate is ever going to give that to a "realistic" biopic.

That really sucks because there's a lot of cool stories in music that can never be told because of these estates.

even beyond the music licensing headaches, the vast majority of music biopics are structurally formulaic to the point of redundancy. there's only so much insight you can offer when you're cramming 30-40 years of someone's life into 120 minutes. trying to cover anyone's career of that length from start to finish isn't going to allow for much time to look into the more interesting, lesser known aspects of an artist's process or personality, so they almost always boil down to 'starting out it was rough, then it was great, then they got all fucked up, then things mostly worked out'. i'd way rather see something that focuses on one period or event, eg Jimi Hendrix at Monterey or Bob Dylan at Newport. everyone knows the bullet points of the careers of the acts who are big enough to get a movie made about them, so why not right?
least diplo knows he's an airhead
very true. i can't lie, i kinda loved What Would Diplo Do. can't say i expect MIA to have that kind of sense of humor about herself

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that Tame Impala is festival-headliner status.

I love the band, but man, it is wild they're out here headlining festivals like Coachella and Glasto with practically no mainstream impact.

Thats what I Been sayingg. I want that kind of glow up where you go from headlining Aus/NZ's alty music festival to literally the biggest festivals in the world without having released a substantial body of work.

so it's standard operating procedure to detain someone in solitary confinement for weeks on end following an assault? huh and i thought Scandinavia's justice system was supposed to be progressive

He's not in solitary confinement though? I would point to this post which gets most things right when it comes to how our system works and why he is in the position he is:


A consequence of this "time-freeze" is that Rocky must be reasonably separated from other lay-people- He can still communicate over monitored channels, and he can talk to priests, psycologhist, lawyers, the guards, watch tv or read. A side effect of this is some amount of isolation. This is totally normal- non convicted people are innocent and should not serve as prisoners among the general population.

"HE IS NOT HELD IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT: He is held in varetektsfengsling/ Häktning. Basically safe storage. This is not meant to be a punishment (Thought it is recognised as detrimental to the charged party) , "
lol
seriously though, i'm asking, is it common to be held for two weeks pending investigation in Sweden? in the US normally you'd be allowed to post bail pending a hearing, which usually wouldn't be for months later. i'm not familiar the Swedish justice system at all obviously, but there have to be dudes getting in drunken fights and winding up on Swedish worldstar from time to time, right? being held for two weeks at a time seems like an excessive standard

swedish authorities probably feel that if they allowed rocky bail, he would try and leave the country. hell, i would too if i were him.

yeah, i guess that's why i'm confused. like would they keep him detained for the length of a trial? if they found him guilty, would they actually spend money on putting him in jail? seems more likely he'd just end up getting deported anyway, right? hey what do i know though. just seems sus

Entirely depends on if the court thinks there is reason to keep him separated either because of flight risk, or influence on the investigation. And again, this time is subtracted from his actual punishment in the end. Also, like the post says, prosecutors need to re-justify this every 14 days. The place he's being held probably looks something like this, and I'm pretty sure he's not confined to it 24/7, rather it's about cutting off comms with the outside world:




Always found the concept of bail to a be a really fucked one. Why would the hearings be months later? Backlog?

I think this is the big no-no:
News of Rocky’s arrest spreads, raising new questions. TMZ reports that Rocky went to the police voluntarily and was arrested “immediately.” The site also claims that police were blocking the U.S. Embassy from meeting with Rocky and his team, reportedly a break from usual procedures and “a breach of Rocky’s human rights.” Rocky misses a scheduled performance at Norway’s Kadetten Festival.
Again, it is TMZ, a site that feeds off of craven drama, but if this is true, that's a big deal.

new dev hynes and dvsn on the heels of a new daniel caesar, the R&B feast continues no thanks to frank

  • Ansel Elgort
  • Harry Styles
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson
  • Austin Butler

teller would be good if only because he should be a way bigger name after that whiplash performance

forgot how good darkest before dawn: the prelude was. would have loved to hear what the OG version of daytona sounded like
pusha's solo career is 3 for 3 so far. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if daytona/king push was always fairly similar to what we have now

None of the actors on that list have the sheer natural charisma that would bring Elvis to mind. But, its a Baz Luhrmann joint and will thus be a massive bomb.

Also, Post Malone is threatening his next studio album:

this isn't really based off any evidence but I do feel like teller has the potential to be a pretty commanding screen presence, as long as he's not playing foil to JK simmons. in any case, this will be a useless FEELGOOD MOVIE OF THE SEASON biopic either way, so maybe we do wanna cast g-eazy so he doesn't have time to make more music
