Nipplegate Revisited: How Justin Timberlake’s Previous Super Bowl Performance Rocked the World and Changed the Internet

Nipplegate Revisited: How Justin Timberlake’s Previous Super Bowl Performance Rocked the World and Changed the Internet
For years after the 2004 Super Bowl performance by Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson scandalized the world, the halftime pageant’s producers lived in terror of going near anything that could be considered filth. So it’s a measure of how far we’ve come that Justin Timberlake will presumably be singing his current hit, “Filth,” as part of Super Bowl Lii. Fourteen years was enough to ensure the 50-yard line was no longer toxic for the superstar, who’ll be bringing sexy back but leaving nipple shields in their place in history.

In the days following “Nipplegate” — in which Timberlake tore off a piece of Jackson’s jacket, accidentally revealing her mostly bare breast, under mysterious circumstances that are debated by conspiracy theorists to this day — there looked to be damage to her career, damage to his career, and a crackdown on sexual leniency on TV. But only the first of those came true, as Jackson

Exclusive Creepy Clip: Nails, Thick With Dread

In our creepy exclusive clip from Dennis Bartok's Nails, the room fills up with dread and then something happens ... well, I'll just stick with "creepy" as a descriptor, but I really like what it did to me. Described as a psychological horror film, Nails "centers on Dana Milgrom (Shauna Macdonald, Filth, Moon Dogs)," according to the official description. She's "a track coach and mother who has survived a near-death car accident, only to find herself paralyzed and trapped inside her own body. While struggling to regain control of her life, Dana is confronted with a vindictive spirit; a terrifying presence called Nails, whom she is convinced exists inside her hospital room. "Faced with skepticism from her husband, doctors and the staff, and believed to...

A serial killer stalks the Limehouse streets of Victorian London in 1880, the terrified population of this squalid district of the East End believe that the “Golem”, a monster from Judaic mythology, is responsible.

His chief suspects are music hall superstar Dan Leno, political agitator Karl Marx, writer and philosopher George Gissing and journalist John Cree.

‘T2 Trainspotting’ Review

Stars: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Anjela Nedyalkova, Kelly Macdonald | Written by John Hodge | Directed by Danny Boyle

20 years on, the idea of a sequel to a film that was so entrenched in a time and place in modern British history might seem like folly. And while it’s not as bad as it could have been, T2 Trainspotting (as it’s clunkily named) struggles to find a personality or a cultural relevance of its own. It tries hard – too hard – and ends up being a cover version as dodgy as the remixes that dominate its soundtrack.

First we find a middle-aged Renton (Ewan McGregor), running on a treadmill. Still running. Always running but getting nowhere. He’s living in Amsterdam, but he’s drawn back to Edinburgh. There, Spud (Ewen Bremner) has barely moved on. The clocks changed for British summertime and he got confused

Split Review – M. Night Shyamalan | James McAvoy

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Stefan Pape

Though not a film being spoken about on awards terms, James McAvoy’s remarkable, nuanced performance in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split is likely to be as good as any those nominated for an Academy Award. The actor’s finest turn since Filth, is enough to turn this inane, absurd piece of cinema, into a rather good one.

McAvoy plays, well, several different characters – though for the sake of this review, we’ll stick with his birth name Kevin. Kevin isn’t a very nice chap either, and he abducts three teenage girls, Claire (Haley Lu Richardson), Marcia (Jessica Sula) and the introverted Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy) from the formers birthday gathering. Locking them up in his basement, he frequents the girls on a regular basis, though when the doors open, they’re never quite sure who it will be visiting, as Kevin has a split-personality disorder, with 24 different personas.

AFI Film Review: ‘Split’

AFI Film Review: ‘Split’
Multiple Personality Disorder, like amnesia, is one of those aberrant mental states that’s been a curse to those who suffer, but a gift to screenwriters over the years. From Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” to Brian De Palma’s “Dressed to Kill,” filmmakers have long exploited how little we truly understand the condition — though none has pushed it quite as far as M. Night Shyamalan does in “Split,” treating Dissociative Identity Disorder not as the twist, but as the premise on which this wickedly compelling abduction thriller is founded, as James McAvoy plays a lunatic kidnapper with at least 23 personalities to his name.

Rest assured, there are plenty of proper twists to follow, none more unexpected that the fact that Shyamalan has managed to get his groove back after a slew of increasingly atrocious misfires. To be fair, it’s hard to imagine any writer-director sustaining a career based almost entirely on surprising audiences,
