rdj ice bucket challenge (or the sound of a million elephants)

With many people who are involved in movies and TV participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge, I thought it appropriate to reblog and handful of them for this blog. according to their website.

For those of you who don’t know, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is meant to raise awareness towards the ALS association, “the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front” according to their website. The Ice Bucket Challenge works like this: in good sport someone dumps a bucket of ice on their head and then challenges three other parties to do the same within 24 hours or else donate to the foundation. They then challenge three people in a “pay it forward” style event. Although the idea is you should only pay if you don’t take the challenge, taking the challenge still raises awareness for the organization and the disease.

If you want to see more celebrity videos, I found this website has a lot more then I will be posting: http://alsaicebucketchallengevideos.tumblr.com/

Motherfuckin’ Justice: The Final Images of Quentin Tarantino

The endings of Quentin Tarantino’s films express various layers of humor, hope, dark empathy, or deep introspection, each as a portrayal of one common thread: Justice. It is never total justice, but rather an unenviable justice that is earned at a heavy cost. The images above not only illustrate Tarantino’s mastery of simple resolutions for complex story lines, but they also prove the director’s belief in the power of the final image as a conclusive revelation that can live on beyond the film experience, providing a feeling of victory in our own lives. -MJ (TFI)
