    Ok, but as the conversation was about how Meghan thought people were interested in her opinion, her starting a podcast is a relevant piece of evidence that she does actually think that. If you listen to any of these podcasts you will also notice her interjecting celebrities by making sure to speak about her own irrelevant unconnected personal stories. 

    Show us on the doll where the podcast touched you.

    Because all of this fuss is basically all because Meghan didn’t like getting bad press. She couldn’t handle anyone saying anything bad about her, and that’s why Harry left the royal family and any of us are talking about it. She is the main motivator behind all of it.

     

    Pfft, she wasn’t getting it any worse than anyone else. Problem is she thought everyone was going to love her and treat her like a princess , but unfortunately she was more of a diva than a princess and you can’t force people to like you 

    Wow. You really like minimizing her experience there. Then again, I've never received death threats so maybe she did overreact. 

    Carry on then.

    Well yes. Meghan OBVIOUSLY cares. 

    Cares considerably less since they left the country and are no longer at the mercy of those fucking vampires. and why does this come back to Meghan? I said, "the Sussexes".

    The reason any of this is happening is because she didn’t like it that the press weren’t 100% gushing over her and treating her like the new Diana. 

    I think she might have settled for being treated like a human being; but that was too much for the UK press.

    And yet she still wanted to be her and be treated like her. 

    :huh:

  4. ...Also,

    Does anyone think the Sussexes give a flying fuck at this point what the tabloids or the English people think of them? Harry gave an interview once where the said he didn't like the tabloids, didn't care for the "shite" they printed and didn't much care for living in England. This was a decade before he ever met Meghan  Markle.

    Remind me again, is that the paper Harry's suing? 

    There were people who thought that the death of Lady Di might bring down the Monarchy and usher in a republic. I thought that was kind of inane but now I'm thinking they might have been on to something. Diana's revenge, bitches.

    Netflix: Reed Hastings steps down but subscribers jump
    Harry and Meghan's "great love story" was one of the big draws for customers

    No shit? 

    The whole "sky is falling at Netflix" thing never made sense to me. This company has over 220 million subscribers and something like 10 years of uninterrupted quarterly subscriber growth. It's perfectly normal for them to see some headwinds. 

    They were also criticized for not having an ad supported tier. I think it was a good thing they didn't because it meant that lever was still available for them to pull. And Disney and amazon started with ads at much lower subscriber counts. 

    I'd still like to see how the ads are executed. If it's like a content block at the beginning of a movie in the cinema, Fine. If it's like Tubi where it's the same commercial every five minutes until the film ends, not so fine.

    It was a Star Wars pitch they rejected. You've seen the Star Wars movies they've put out, right? 

    Yeah, an exhibition of stunning creativity and pitch-perfect decision making there. :rolleyes:

    I don't know the timing exactly, but if I'm not mistaken he pitched it to Lucasfilm either just before, or just after the decision was made to sell to Disney. It's unlikely anyone was going to successfully pitch anything at that point.

    Yes.  Though the story is another retelling of Seven Samurai. 

    "Inspired-by" is more like it. Everything I'm hearing (2 films, maybe more, massive production) suggest there's considerably more there. 

    ETA: God I hope there are lightsabers in it.

    And since Avatar 3 is only coming out in '24, there will likely be re-release sometime before that, because Avatar 1 got what? 2-3 re-releases, so it will add to the tally.

    If it follows the same scheme as the first film, we'll get a directors cut in theaters this summer. Guaranteed Avatar 2 hits theaters again in November 2024. 

    But yeah, the various re-releases of Avatar have added almost $200 million since it finished its run back in 2010.

    I still just can't fathom that. Two billion dollars in ticket sales. I wonder how many tickets that translates to being sold across the world?

    More importantly, it has legs similar to Top Gun Maverick. At this point in its theatrical run, TG:M would add another $400-$500 million world wide by the end. Who knows where Avatar 2 will land. 

    This is for a film that, in the past months, some people were legit saying was going to fail.

    Top Gun 2 remains the superior film though, even if it is surpassed in b-o. 

    Oh, he's definitely going to go over to the good guys. They can't have him lose every film. He's already done as a credible threat in my opinion and having him go native is also the most cliché way to go, so that's what Cameron's MO is for the story of these films.

    I'm going to look up Butler, he does look interesting.

    He's kind of half way there already. Not just in therms of his physical form. The values and virtues of a marine are much closer to those of the Na'Vi than the human society depicted in the film. and it goes without saying that he can't go back to earth. 

     

  11. Well, well.

    Press release: Various Claimants vs. Associated Newspapers Limited

    BY CALLUM GALBRAITH 

    Today a group of people have launched a legal action against Associated Newspapers, publishers of The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and the Mail Online.

    The group behind this legal offensive are: Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon OBE; Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex; Sir Elton John and David Furnish; Elizabeth Hurley; and Sadie Frost.

    These individuals have become aware of compelling and highly distressing evidence that they have been the victims of abhorrent criminal activity and gross breaches of privacy by Associated Newspapers. Unlawful acts alleged to have taken place include:

    • The hiring of private investigators to secretly place listening devices inside people’s cars and homes
    • The commissioning of individuals to surreptitiously listen into and record people’s live, private telephone calls whilst they were taking place
    • The payment of police officials, with corrupt links to private investigators, for inside, sensitive information
    • The impersonation of individuals to obtain medical information from private hospitals, clinics, and treatment centres by deception
    • The accessing of bank accounts, credit histories and financial transactions through illicit means and manipulation.

    It is apparent to these individuals that the alleged crimes listed above represent the tip of the iceberg – and that many other innocent people remain unknowing victims of similar terrible and reprehensible covert acts.

    They have now therefore banded together to uncover the truth, and to hold the journalists responsible fully accountable, many of whom still hold senior positions of authority and power today.

    These individuals have been the subject of public interest during the course of their careers and personal lives. They are united in their desire to live in a world where the press operates freely, yet responsibly. A press that represents truth, is sourced in fact and can be trusted to operate ethically and in the interests of the British public.

    Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, and Sadie Frost are represented by Hamlins LLP.

    Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon OBE, Elizabeth Hurley and Sir Elton John and David Furnish are represented by gunnercooke.

    David Sherborne of 5RB is Counsel for all the Claimants instructed by Callum Galbraith of Hamlins LLP and Anjlee Sangani of gunnercooke.

    They also photographed her and the other crash victims as they lay injured, dead or dying

    Holy shit, really? I didn't know that. 

    The driver is most responsible for the wreck, but he would not have been doing that speed in that tunnel if he wasn't being chased. and if you've seen the damage to that car, it's unlikely a seatbelt would have saved her. She was sitting in the back seat with no front or side curtain airbag.

    You can understand why Andrew thinks he can get away with what he did when you look at the kind of people they have in the police.

    I'm just now learning about David Carrick. Disgusting. I hope the bury him under the jail. 

    And lets not forget that met police officers were colluding with the tabloids in the phone hacking scandal.

    Dude, she suggested that her children would be exploited by tabloids that disparaged her, lied about her, and lead to the death her husband's mother even though there is a LAW about photographs in school. Simply evil for her to impugn their sterling reputation (WINK) and to suggest that laws might be skirted, changed, or simply ignored.

    Yeah, totally. It's not like they'd ever do anything immoral or illegal like, doctor photographs or tap peoples phones.
