Jennifer Lawrence: Hurricanes Irma and Harvey are Nature's Vengeance Against Trump Voters

She has a movie coming out too.

What a charming woman.

...Lawrence replied that "it was really startling" Trump was elected. She then suggested the recent hurricanes devastating Texas and nearing Florida may have been prompted by Trump winning the presidency.

You know, youre watching these hurricanes now, and its really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Natures rage and wrath," Lawrence said.

Yeah, I would blast this article on FaceBook and to everyone you know.

Don't call for a boycott; just let people make their own decisions.

Threadjack: Steven Crowder and Not Gay Jared pan the latest unnecessary remake of It.

You know, back when I used to like Marvel comic movies, people would bust my chops for liking something so immature.

So let me bust some people back. (Although, alas, i might end up busting on people who were not busting on me.)

I have never liked Steven King. At all. I have never found him scary. I have found him stupid with cutesty-poo writing of the kind that would do as a first-year creative writing student until a teacher told you "stop it." Well, he never did.

His ideas just aren't original or well-executed.

I thought It was a terrible and stupid idea -- a monster that can make itself look like other monsters to scare you. I read part of the book, but when Pennywise showed up as, and I think this is how the book specifies it, Michael Landon from I Was a Teenaged Werewolf, I put the book down.

The only Steven King movie I've ever liked is The Shining, and I hear that departed from the book, and besides, most of that was Kubrick and Nicholson. The actual idea of a family stuck in a haunted location isn't exactly a novel premise.

And the only book of his I liked was Misery, and I didn't even love that. I just liked it.

I've read the beginning of like ten Steven King books and put nine of them down because I thought they were too immature, even back when I was in HS or early days in college.

I do not get this. I do not get all the "Dark Tower, EPIC!" crap. I never read it, but I've read parts of his other crap, and I would guess it's just more ideas stolen from previous hack writers (and I don't mean hack writer in a bad way, I just mean pro genre writer) and set in Derry, Maine.

Oh that's not fair. Sometimes they're set in Castle Rock, Maine.

He's terrible. His ideas are dumb, his characters are all the same (half of them are writers -- way to stretch, Big Guy!), and his stories are just not scary.


Oh: Armond White also pans it for being a montage of images from other movies, and also recommends an Italian documentary called Spectacco, about a small town that every year collectively puts on a play. Sounds maybe like Waiting for Guffman, but more seriously.
