Mocking Meme Imagines Various Movies with Dialogue Written by Joss Whedon

As writer and director Joss Whedon comes under fire for a history of alleged abuse and misconduct, Twitter is taking the opportunity to burn Whedon's notably goofy writing style through a clever snowclone meme. The first examples of the meme seem to have come from @MeganBitchell, who posted stills from Silence of the Lambs and Saw captioned with Whedon-esque dialogue. 

 

Once well-known for girlbossing his femme characters and fancying himself a champion of feminism, Whedon's 'wokeness' and stylistic instincts have become somewhat of a joke in light of recent accusations. The fact that people can parody his dialogue with little effort makes the meme even funnier. Try it out—it works on literally any movie.

Will Smith's 'Pandemic Bod' Posts Are Delightfully Relatable

If you've put on a pound or two (or ten) over the pandemic, you're not alone. Will Smith has been gettin' jiggly with it just like the rest of us and we couldn't relate more to his recent Instagram posts in which he flaunts a glorious pandemic gut. One of the posts has a caption that reads, 'I'm gonna be real wit yall - I'm in the worst shape of my life.' A handful of fellow celebs related to the post in the comments and offered both support and playful teasing. It's pretty refreshing to see a Hollywood actor being unabashedly human on Instagram. Way to be body positive, Will!

Movies are really fun as long as you don't stop and smell the civilian casualties or take stock of how many fish Aquaman sends to their deaths or how many people Spider-Man lets get obliterated by a crane or how Ready Player One's Wade Watts is even less cool than we think. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns this week to point out all sorts of little depressing details that were snuck into movies that you probably never noticed!

Twitter Has Meltdown Over The Lola Bunny Redesign

It's pretty easy to laugh at furries. The subculture's pervy fanaticism towards anthropomorphic animals can be a lot to take in. Recent movies such as Zootopia only seem to fan the flames of furry desire. Today, thanks to news of Space Jam: A New Legacy's redesign of the sultry Lola Rabbit, we're reminded that these creepy (and horny) tendencies were prevalent as early as 1996.

For those of you who were unaware, Lola Bunny, Bugs Bunny's love interest, is as curvy as she is good at basketball. The artists bestowed her with a pretty serious rack and child-birthing hips. These qualities alarmed the reboot's Director, Malcolm D. Lee, who told Entertainment Weekly that he wanted to wanted to update the look for a more modern and less sexualized appearance. "This is 2021," he said. "It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters." 

While we can definitely see where he's coming from (we should not be feeling jealous of a rabbit's assets), the response on Twitter has been mostly negative. And revealing. Seems like there are a whole lot of horny and nostalgic people who really, really hate Lola's less-sexy look and apparent breast reduction. While we're feeling kind of creeped out by how passionate the people are, it's definitely a cause that is both cringey and hilarious. We've put together some of the best responses in this gallery, but we're pretty certain this will be talked about for a while. Frankly, we're surprised that some incel hasn't made a Change.org petition demanding a return to tradition.

Badly Explained Movie Plots That Are Technically True

These funny movie synopses feel totally wrong, but are sort of on point. They read like someone who just started watching movies for the first time badly trying to explain a plot. It's fun to try and think of other movies you can sum up in just a few sentences with crude reductionism. Beauty and the Beast? A young woman makes friends with some furniture and falls in love with her kidnapper. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Creepy rich guy lures families into a building and kills kids in front of their parents. Inception? A group of colleagues take some epic naps together.

Take a look at some of these hilariously bad (but not wrong) plot summaries, and if you want more funny movie-related content, try this!

While it may seem like the world is opening up to a spectrum of masculinity, Hollywood has never really wavered in its portrayal of action hunks and their opinion of what a man should is supposed to be like. Our friends over at Cracked take a short but in-depth look at these oiled-up muscly tropes in this video, as well as clichés regarding male intellect and, of course, height.

24 Hilarious Twitter Reactions To The Kim & Kanye Divorce Rumors

Looks like 2021 has claimed its first victims. You know, besides the thousands of people who have died of Covid-19. Page Six dropped a bomb on pop culture fanatics yesterday. The bomb? That Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced. The exclusive report claims that multiple sources have come forward to share that "divorce is imminent" for the couple. This isn't the first time a tabloid has teased their journey to Splitsville, but Page Six cites Kanye's absence from the Kardashian family holiday celebrations and Kim's equally absent wedding ring as proof that they are calling it quits. 

The high profile couple has yet to speak on the matter, but people on Twitter are making up for their silence with some seriously funny and scathing reactions. While some people are giddy about the news (people who love drama, Kanye fans who crave new music), other Twitter users are using this moment to call out Kim and Kanye for their narcissism, money-hungry families, and some of the more ridiculous stunts of their relationship. And then there are the people who claim they don't care - but for some reason feel the need to tell the world about it.

It's said that you learn something new every day. Well, today we learned that Nicolas Cage was slated to star in a Tim Burton-helmed Superman film. The movie, titled Superman Lives sounded like the breath of fresh air that the franchise needed. But due to production company drama, the plug was ultimately pulled. These costume tests from 1997, however, give us a taste of the awesomeness that might have been.

Gal Gadot To Play Cleopatra And Twitter Has Mixed Feelings

Deadline announced earlier today that Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot would be teaming up again to bring a new epic about Cleopatra to life. While the news has been better-received than Gadot's "Imagine" debacle from the early days of quarantine, not everyone's happy about the choice. Gadot's an Israeli with very European heritage, and it seems that many Twitter users feel that casting does a Scarlett Johansson to an Egyptian queen. As some people are crying whitewashing, many have pointed out that by most credible accounts, the fierce ruler was actually of Greek heritage - though her mother's roots have been heavily debated. As with most Hollywood casting controversies, it seems that everyone has a very important opinion on the matter. You can enjoy (or scoff) at some of them below.

We’re off to a great start.

The first, only, and by default, best public prank of 2017 is here. Around 3:30 am on New Year’s day, someone snuck up to the Hollywood sign, threw several carefully cut tarps over the two Os so that they would look like Es, and disappeared, like a ninja in a cloud of smoke. The sign read “Hollyweed" until 12:30pm, when Stacy Isroelit, a spokeswoman for the Hollywood Sign Trust said that the tarps would be taken down.

The New York Times reported that the prank may be referencing new legislation for legalized recreational marijuana use, but Isroelit said, “It looks more like a New Year’s Eve prank.”

The suspect is still at large. Who knows if they’ll attack other American icons, like putting a joint in Teddy Roosevelt's mouth on Mount Rushmore or making the Statue of Liberty’s torch look like a bong. You know, other weed stuff.

Celebrities and cartoon characters are attempting to distance themselves form the crime.


Whoever did it, thank you for getting this year off on the right foot.
