If you don’t know, old tweets of James‘ resurfaced earlier this month and he was quickly fired as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Rian apparently deleted tweets that were sent before January 25. “No official directive at all,” Rian said in response to the implication that Disney told him to delete tweets, “and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad. But it’s nine years of stuff written largely off the cuff as ephemera, if trolls scrutinizing it for ammunition is the new normal, this seems like a ‘why not?’ move.” No official directive at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad.

"Jennifer Lawrence Acts Like A Female Impersonator": See The Best & Worst Critics Have To Say In Our Red Sparrow Review Roundup!

Will Jennifer Lawrence suffer yet another flop at the box office this weekend?? Look, we all know Red Sparrow is no match for Black Panther, but it isn't exactly in the same budget range either. It's the type of grownup thriller that gets the audience looking for more provocative, pensive fare. At least, it's supposed to be. Related: [...] Will Jennifer Lawrence suffer yet another flop at the box office this weekend?? Look, we all know Red Sparrow is no match for Black Panther, but it isn't exactly in the same budget range either. It's the type of grownup thriller that gets the audience looking for more provocative, pensive fare. At least, it's supposed to be. Related: J.Law Overshares About Darren Aronofsky Relationship & Chris Pratt Rumors! Based on which reviews you read, this is either a sexy, slow burn spy thriller or an absolute borefest! Is it Tinker Tailer Soldier Feminist? Or Subatomic Blonde? Find out for yourself by checking out the good, the bad, and the ugly in our review roundup (below)! The Good: Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "...elegantly tense and absorbing... Lawrence, with regal cheekbones and voluptuous bangs, has a great Slavic look, and eases into the soul of playing a Russian." Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: "...yes, it's a movie about spying, but it's just as much a movie about Jennifer Lawrence going around jennifer-lawrencing it up all over the place. The story construction is laudable, the supporting roles and even the bit roles are superbly cast and played. But in the moment, the movie is just as much about Lawrence looking out the window, or beating up people with a golf club, or projecting blank-faced composure and extreme agitation, a combination she can do better than anybody." Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News: "People who crave a movie about a secret agent with her own sexual agency - and a mission to give male predators exactly what they deserve - are going to want front-row seats. And a sequel." The Bad: Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service: "The film is beautiful to look at, but it's empty and meaningless. The sensational images add up to a whole lot of provocation, but there isn't a shred of substance to be found." Wenlei Ma, news.com.au: "The greatest disappointment about Red Sparrow is that it could've been so much more than it was, so thank god it looked beautiful because it is badly written and confusing." Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro: "within 15 minutes I was already bored by the plot - a problem when over two hours still stretched ahead." Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune: "Half of the "Red Sparrow" audience will spend at least part of the running time fighting off memories of "Salt" and "Atomic Blonde" and the Black Widow storyline from "The Avengers." The other half, meantime, will wonder when spy movies became quite so punishing." The Ugly: Nigel Andrews, Financial Times: "Jennifer Lawrence acts like a female impersonator riffing through routines." Sara Stewart, New York Post: "...atrocious spy thriller, in which Jennifer Lawrence plays a prima ballerina who goes to whore school. I'm not kidding. The film's unquestionable high point is Lawrence's character bellowing the accusing line in her Boris-and-Natasha accent: "You sent me to whore school!"" Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly: "It's not smart enough to be completely captivating or trashy enough to be considered an escapist absurdity. And no, the Oscar winner can't quite pull off the Black Swan-meets-La Femme Nikita role." Alonso Duralde, TheWrap: "Neither intelligent enough to be involving nor fun enough to be trashy, this is a movie that would only work if it were a little worse or a lot better."

There’s a distinct difference between Pushing through, and being Pulled towards something. I find that when I’m pushing through a situation I am uncertain of the destination. Things seem a little harder and I feel less motivated. However, the force of being Pulled towards something indicates I have a clear and compelling goal which provides me with a different type of sustainable energy. If you feel like you’re having to “push through”, perhaps take a moment and see if you are clear in your goals/future, and if not, then you have an amazing opportunity to create a Compelling and exciting one that will PULL you towards your destiny!
