Nor the evils of the worldwide Islamic Inquisition which — not in the 16th century but now, in the 21st, condemns Muslim apostates to barbaric execution. Instead, aggressive White androphobes of all genders which I can no longer count are decimating the philogynous and egalitarian West. Equality psychos are tearing down the most egalitarian society that ever existed except for initial communist experiments, before they turned bloody.

A recent rule change in the Winter Olympics allows figure skaters to perform to songs with lyrics, and Queens-born contender Jimmy Ma threw the gauntlet during the U.

Besides watching Ma get a little raunchy on the ice, the best part of the video is listening to the commentators go from bemusement at his choice of house music to start, to stunned when Lil Jon kicks in. Hang onto your tights, guys and girls — it’s promising to be an exciting season.
Get older people hyped and for younger people to think it is cool. Margot Robbie is chasing Golden Globes glory for I, Tonya, a riveting account of figure skating’s most high-profile rivalry that’s made every best movie list.

The European Championships came first. Bolero gained them a further 11 and the stage was set for the Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo, in the former Yugoslavia, now Bosnia and Herzegovina. Leading the competition from the outset, their Paso Doble scored sixes again. On February 14th, more than 20 million people in the UK and millions more worldwide, watched on television for 4 minutes and 28 seconds as Jayne and Chris delivered a flawless performance of their Bolero.

Korean 83, Imported Total admissions: They are listed in the order of their release. Feathers in the Wind Sometimes small-scale, informal projects can liberate a director. Without the pressure and weighty expectations involved in producing a major work, inspiration flows freely and the result is an even more accomplished piece of art. This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island , Spider Forest , and various award-winning short films including The Picnic Git was originally commissioned as a minute segment of the digital omnibus film 1.
Alas, the festival’s expectations were confounded, first in that only Lee Young-jae’s work really engaged environmental issues in a direct way the other two were merely set in rural areas , and second by the fact that Song went out and shot a minute film. As an omnibus work, 1. But if Song betrayed the spirit of the omnibus project, he remained true to the needs of his film.
Git centers around a film director who, in the middle of starting his next screenplay, remembers a promise he’d made ten years earlier. While staying on a remote southern island off Jeju-do, he and his girlfriend of the time agreed to come back and meet at the same motel exactly ten years in the future.
