Note: Hi, I’m Laremy, welcome to my old column. Rhetorical question: What will this column be? A collection of links you can read, along with really solid commentary. Most will be movie related, but some will just be good ol’ frisky fun, because we can’t read about movies all the time. Now, I’m not saying this column will change the world, but it will definitely rock it to its core. Let’s get in there!

Michael Oher Admits He Doesn’t Like ‘The Blind Side,’ a Movie Based on His Life – From Bleacher Report

Finally, an NFL player has the courage to “admit” he doesn’t like the movie about himself. I feel for the guy. I mean, left tackle is a volunteer job, isn’t it? And then you’ve got that B Sandra Bullock messing up your life.

Best quote from the article:

“People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don’t really see the skills and the kind of player I am. That’s why I get downgraded so much, because of something off the field.”

If I know one thing about NFL coaches it’s that they are major cinephiles. This terrible burden Hollywood has placed upon Michael has been noted. And it won’t be forgotten.

The Mountain from ‘Game of Thrones’ Crushes Stones Circuit at Strongman Event – From Bleacher Report

I want this guy to snuggle me. Unlike whiney Mike up there.

Best quote from the article

Well, none really. The video pretty much speaks for itself. If I were 6-foot-9, 419 pounds I would bully the sh*t out of people. No, like seriously.

Inside the Oldest, Most Exclusive Dance Party in the World – From Rolling Stone

An article about an exclusive dance party? Oh, I’m there. You best believe MY pelvic floor will hit THE floor. I never get fancy, I just get dancy!

Best quote from the article:

If you passed him on the dirt road, you might dismiss him as a simple man with little opportunity for self-expression. You would be very, very wrong.

What historical person does that remind you of? Oh, I don’t know, could it be JESUS?! But really, I never dismiss anyone, especially the simple men.

I am creating the next Facebook and need funding. What steps should I take next? – Quora

I may make the terrible Quora question of the week an actual thing.

Best quote from the article:

So why would ANY respectable investor give you money? WHY?

You could have just said, “NO”.

A whole new Jurassic World – From fxguide

Hey ding-a-ling, not sure if you noticed, but Jurassic World has made almost a billion dollars. Why? Special effects, or as us in the know call them, FX. It’s shorter to say that way, so you can go back to doing special effects. This article is all about dem dino FX.

Best quote from the article:

“The tiger also informed the silhouette of the raptors,” adds McIntosh. “Instead of their heads being held high like the graceful neck on the ostrich which actually goes back as it runs forward, we extended the raptors’ heads forward so they were leaning into the run but also straighter with their tails parallel to the ground to make them feel faster and more streamlined like the tiger.”

This gives me a good idea – a tiger raptor. Get the Toronto NBA team on the line.
