I have really bad taste in movies, therefore I watch a lot of crappy films on Netflix. Even though I know they are awful, I can sometimes tell one is not worth watching because it is gotten less than two stars. That is no longer going to be the case in a few weeks.
According to Variety, the streaming service announced today that going from the 5 star system to a thumbs up/thumbs down one. Why the change? Netflix VP of Product Todd Yellin said after some testing, the thumbs did 200% better than the stars. I guess it is easier and a throwback to the late Sniskel and Ebert, and that is why people prefer it.
Do you give Netflix a thumbs up or a thumbs down for the change to their ratings system?
Yesterday, the World fell in love with 2 awwwwdorable kids who interrupted their dad’s BBC interview about South Korea impeaching their President, Park Geun-hye, and now their grandmother explains what happened.
Ellen Kelly told Daily Mail why her grandchildren, Marion 4, and James, 9 months, bursted into the room when they heard their dad talking to someone on the computer. She said, “Robert usually Skypes with us from his home office, which is where he did the interview.” Then she added, “The kids probably heard voices coming from the computer and assumed it was us…It was just hilarious.”
You see Ellen Kelly lives in Ohio, while her son, Robert E Kelly, and his wife, Jung-a Kim, live in South Korea, so that is the best and cheapest way for her to see her two grandkids. Since, kids love their grandparents, you can’t blame them for running in to talk to them. Which explains why Marion came in dancing, she was putting a little show for her grandma.
When it comes to Ellen, being the proud mom that she is, she told the British newspaper, “I just hope that he gains recognition for his expertise rather than for this, as great as it all is.” Sorry, he will always be remembered for this because he is this year’s biggest viral sensation and it is something the whole World has been craving and desiring.
Now, when it comes to the Kelly family, which talk shows do you think they will be on this week here in the States? I say Good Morning America, Today, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Therefore, look out for the family of four to make their American debut. And let’s hope it is just as memorable.
Ryan Gosling accepted a Goldene Kamera Award in Germany yesterday. Only one problem, it wasn’t him.
What? According to The Hollywood Reporter back in January two German comedians, Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf, created a fake booking agency and booked the Oscar nominee on the show. The Kameras were so excited to have him be part of their big night, they agreed to several demands like he wouldn’t walk the red carpet, would be surrounded by security the whole time and his appearance would not be announced before he came out to accept the award.
Then it was time for the big moment. Out walked Ludwig Lehner, a Munich Chef who has a slight resemblance to the actor and he said, “Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling. I dedicate this prize to Joko and Klaas.” It was then that everyone in the audience including Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell knew they were pranked. And they took it all in with shock and laughter. After the Oscargate, does anything surprise anymore at awards shows? Let’s hope so because that is what makes them memorable. It is the only reason why we still remember Moonlight beat out La La Land for Best Picture
When it comes Lehner, do you think he looks like The Notebook heartthrob? I think he looked more like Nicolas Cage with the huge side split than the hot actor. Still it is quite incredible that they were able to pull it off. My Alpine Bavarian Hat is off to them.
New Kids on the Block has pretty much touring ever since they started, so it is no surprise that they still get recognized where ever they go. Recently the youngest member of NKOTB went to Target and a sharp eyed woman realized it was him. She called her BFFs, put on some makeup and chased him around the store. Eventually, her and her group of friends known as What’s Up Moms met up with him and showed him they have the right stuff. Thankfully, he has been through this before and handled it with class. At least as classy as he could.
You know McIntyre is so funny, someone should give him a sitcom. Oh wait Pop TV did, starting in April you can see him in Return of the Mac.
We know that Daniel Radcliffe is a magician, but turns out he might also be immortal like a Vampire. That’s because Graham Norton has been collecting photos of people that look like Harry Potter over the last few centuries to share on his BBC show, and the resemblance between all of them is too spot on. It’s like he is the one in all of those pictures. Although some where his alter ego Daniella, since during some of those time periods he had to be dressed like a woman so no one would realize that he never ages.
Yes, we saw him as a kid, but how do we know that wasn’t one of his many disguises to hide his identity? He hasn’t really aged that much since the movies came out. It has been 15 years and he still looks the same.
Therefore we can only assume that it is him in all of those photos and some day, soon he will have to take on a new name because people will become suspicious that he still looks like a kid even though he is 50. Basically, enjoy him while you can because the Daniel Radcliffe we know needs to become a new person soon so that he can continue to be immortal.
