DRUG binges turned Johnny Depp into an alter-ego called “The Monster” who beat and strangled ex-wife Amber Heard, court documents claim. Amber, 32 — married to the 55-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star for a year — has filed her own lawsuit after he sued her for defamation over abuse claims. Alleging 13 instances of violence, she says Depp would “often not remember his delusional and violent conduct”. He denies her claims and his legal team say they have evidence and witnesses to back up assertions Amber was abusive towards him. His lawyer Adam Waldman said: “A hoax confronted with the reality of evidence requires new lies to sustain itself. Yesterday’s filing, made by a woman with a prior arrest and incarceration for domestic abuse, presented Amber Heard’s new lies.” Here we detail the allegations made in Amber’s lawsuit: LATE 2012/EARLY 2013 Amber says the pair were in LA talking about a tattoo when she … [Read more...] about Amber Heard hits back at Johnny Depp in shocking court docs detailing ‘violent rages and drug binges’

Less than two weeks to go before we unwrap the gift that is the NFL Draft.The League announced this week 23 players will be in attendance. A noticeable omission was former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Rumors have the Heisman finalist falling on draft day. The list could be confirmation or the rumors could be perpetuating one of the many lies floating around the ether this time of year.Either way, I would be shocked if Haskins isn’t selected day one in Nashville.The NFL Draft has become a nice appetizer before our main course in September. A mock version of said draft is meant to educate, and even entertain. At very least, it helps you pass the time. What follows is an attempt at figuring out the best players available in this season’s draft class, and which teams they’d match up well with considering the current draft order.Here’s an updated version of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft:FIRST ROUND1. Arizona (3-13) — Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma, Jr.The … [Read more...] about NFL Mock Draft 2019: First round!
Before its release I knew exactly three things about The Matrix: it was an original science fiction film, from the writer/director siblings whose Bound had so obsessed my lesbian friends and, most importantly, my uncle Bernie was in it. Fast-forward to an opening weekend screening: those soon-to-be-iconic phosphorescent characters stream down the screen and there he is, a cop in the opening scene, kicking down a door. Cuffs in hand, he gingerly approaches a mysterious PVC-clad woman, but she turns, grabs and breaks his arm, then leaps into the air with impossible slow-motion grace, the camera suddenly cut loose from time and space in our first amazing encounter with Bullet Time. Okay, she then kicks him clean across the room, killing him before the first three minutes of The Matrix are over, but I was no less affected: framed by Trinity’s face and arm, all I could see as Big Cop advanced were the eyes of my grandfather, mother, and uncle. Bernie Ledger emigrated from England to … [Read more...] about THE MATRIX Recollections: Talking Bullet Time With Big Cop
By Amy Nicholson The Washington Post Tues., Jan. 15, 2019 WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIF.—It’s a bright winter day on the Sunset Strip, and director Karyn Kusama is doing what she does best: adding shadow to Los Angeles. As she sits down at the corner booth of a charming but customer-free restaurant, Kusama takes stock of the empty chairs. “Hopefully that doesn’t mean we’re going to get food poisoning,” she shrugs. “Not to put a damper on things.” Kusama has learned to view L.A. with skepticism. Her 2000 debut, Girlfight, made her the only filmmaker ever to sweep Sundance’s grand jury and best director prizes. Overnight, she became a major Hollywood contender, but then she fought, and lost, two bruising rounds against the studio system when her big-budget follow-ups flopped for reasons outside her control. Aeon Flux was chopped into nonsense after the departure of the Paramount head who shared Kusama’s vision for a … [Read more...] about Destroyer director Kusama’s dark vision survives career crisis
