We are here for the superheroes, especially for the films! One European director is not, and he has targeted one superhero in particular as propaganda.

Valerian and The City of a Thousand Plants director, Luc Besson, has called Captain America and his movies propaganda!

Luc Besson thinks Captain America is “propaganda.” This isn’t the first time that he has railed against superhero movies, previously saying that he finds protagonists with superpowers hard to relate to, and stating his preference for more normal, flawed heroes. Besson is of course far from the first filmmaker – or moviegoer for that matter – to express fatigue with the now constant onslaught of superhero-based pop culture, as it sometimes seems like nearly every possible superhero is now getting a film or TV show made about them.

For reference, in 2017 alone, Marvel has released or will soon release Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok, while DC’s 2017 docket includes Wonder Womanand Justice League. Over on Netflix, Marvel already released Iron Fist season 1 this year, with The Defenders and The Punisher soon to follow. The CW continues to be dominated by DC heroes, FOX has Gotham, and ABC continues to air more than one Marvel show. 2018 won’t ease up the pace either, with the arrival of the mammoth Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon.

“What bothers me most is it’s always here to show the supremacy of America and how they are great. I mean, which country in the world would have the guts to call a film Captain Brazil or Captain France? I mean, no one! We would be like so ashamed and say, ‘No, no, come on, we can’t do that.’ They can. They can call it Captain America and everybody think it’s normal. I’m not here for propaganda, I’m here to tell a story.”

We can respect Besson’s opinion but we have to wonder if his rant and assessments of Cap are sour grapes. It is no secret that Valerian was an epic fail at the box office, despite being the most expensive independent film ever made. Luc might want to let this argument go clearly superhero films aren’t going anywhere and Captain America is well over 70 years in the works we doubt he’s losing any popularity or momentum anytime soon.

NO FAT SHAMING–Big Girls & The Men Who Want Them!

FAT SHAMING IS A TERM WE SEEM TO HEAR MORE AND MORE ABOUT, ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS PAST MONTH WITH QUANTASIA SHARPTON, THE WOMAN WHO ALLEGES USHER HAD SEX WITH HER WITHOUT DISCLOSING HE HAS HERPES.

Sadly, Quantasia’s allegations are being missed not because of the fans’ loyalty to Usher, but because most people do not believe a woman of her size can pull a man as attractive as Usher. Well we are here to tell you that you are WRONG! Not only do big girls pull men, but some very attractive ones at that. The truth is that love exists in every size and when you try to exclude someone from being loved simply because of their weight it is YOU who has the problem.

Sadly, Quantasia’s allegations are being missed not because of the fans’ loyalty to Usher, but because most people do not believe a woman of her size can pull a man as attractive as Usher. Well we are here to tell you that you are WRONG! Not only do big girls pull men, but some very attractive ones at that. The truth is that love exists in every size and when you try to exclude someone from being loved simply because of their weight it is YOU who has the problem.

We scoured the internet to find some couples that prove everyone deserves love no matter their size. Check them out below

Mzznaki Tetteh, a nurse from Ghana, faced fat shaming last year when internet trolls mocked her engagement photos. Mzznaki remained “#unbothered” and walked down the aisle with her man. It looks like she had the last laugh.

This life we live is all about growth and for one web star that is happening exponentially! We all know Rahim Brazil as one of the actors and resident hotties of About Him: Freshman Year, but as we have mentioned in a previous interview the man has a knack for being talented at just about anything. Well now, the web star has donned two new hats–director and showrunner–with a brand new series he also wrote himself, Twisted!

Twisted is not only the brainchild of Rahim Brazil, but is now a highly anticipated web series set to debut this fall on DreamHouseTV! Check out the extended trailer Rahim’s production company, Big Dreams Productions, recently released below!

Rahim, Rahim, you can truly do anything! This trailer is nothing short of awesome. It is definitely riveting and keeps you in suspense. Most importantly, it makes us want to see more–a lot more! We see a number of new faces and a few familiar ones in 7th & Love stars, Martel Star and D.J. Gibson, and About Him Season 2: The Revolution and Raising Eli’s Chris June (that boy stays BOOKED!)

We were able to get a behind the scenes peek at the show and we have to tell you that these actors are WORKING. Each of them are talented and are bringing their A-game on set. We are definitely giving this our stamp approval before it debuts–and not because we love ourselves a good web series–but because we love a great one. We feel that even though this is Rahim’s directorial debut he will knock it out the park. You heard it here first, Twisted will leave you squirming for more!

Congratulations to Rahim and his amazing cast! We will be tuning. All you make sure you do too! Happy viewing!

Check out a few behind the scenes photos below!
