    I don’t really care about 47 Ronin but I don’t think it’s fair to say it’s “receiving some pretty bad reviews” when that statement is based on one gossip-bloggers opinion of the trailer. An opinion where s/he states they don’t like Keanu to begin with.

    Who cares about the new I-Phone? Nokia just released a 41 megapixel smartphone, so where’s its headline on Towleroad?

    I saw the 47 Ronin trailer and loved it, but then again, I am a self confessed scifi/fantasy dork with juvenile taste….I thought the review of trailer was just mindless sensationalism of a drama diva…

  4. Thomas says

    Just saying, the image you used for Gaga is not the “art work to her new single”, it is just another promotional image for ARTPOP. The cover of her forthcoming single Applause was released yesterday and should probably be the image you use in this article. It’s a pretty bold photograph of Gaga in pierrot drag.

    “Members of the radical feminist movement are undergoing controversy …”

    So, a normal day, then.

    They should take a note from GSAs and PFLAG. Inclusion of all people is how you make progress. If you start with division, you aren’t going to get far.

    Wow, Keanu…no love with this review! I met him when they were filming a movie in Chicago, back in the winter of 1995. I was a “dedicated extra” in the movie, and I had the chance to sit and talk with him for a while…real nice guy. Taller in person, too…LOL The movie, “Chain Reaction”, bombed, by the way, no pun intended.
