"Bright" Director Responds to "Worst Movie of 2017" Review

The reviews for the new Netflix movie Bright have not been that great and now director David Ayer is responding to one review that called the film the “worst movie of 2017.” “BRIGHT, Netflix’s first mega-budget feature, is the single worst movie of 2017,” IndieWire’s David Ehrlich tweeted.

In the review he wrote, “There’s boring, there’s bad, and then there’s Bright, a movie so profoundly awful that Republicans will probably try to pass it into law over Christmas break.” Ayer responded to the tweet and said, “This is going on my fridge. Highest compliment is a strong reaction either way. This is a f–king epic review. It’s a big fun movie. You can sure string words together Mr. Erlich. I’d love to read any script you’ve written.” Ehrlich replied by saying, “you’re a good man, mr. Ayer. i’ll be waiting with fresh eyes for whatever comes next.” “I really appreciate that. Every movie is a labor of love for me. I’ve never chased the audience, and I know my work can be polarizing. I’ve lived a crazy love and I guess my movies reflect that,” David responded. This is going on my fridge. Highest compliment is a strong reaction either way. This is a f*cking epic review. It’s a big fun movie. You can sure string words together Mr. Erlich. I’d love to read any script you’ve written. — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) December 21, 2017.....»»

Diane Kruger Explores Question of Revenge With ‘In The Fade’

With the film In The Fade, Diane Kruger is Katja, a woman who is dealing with the traumatic death of her husband and son from a nail bomb.

For her heartbreaking and inspired performance, Kruger received the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Kruger actually met Faith Akin, the film’s director several years ago when he hosted a Cannes party to promote his documentary Garbage in the Garden of Eden. The Hamburg set thriller led Kruger back to home country (she hadn’t lived in Germany for the past 25 years), and although the feature also explores the growing neo-Nazi world, it also deals with the theme of revenge. In the clip below, Kruger discusses the revenge aspect of In The Fade. In The Fade, which received a Critics Choice and Golden Globes nod for Best Foreign Language Film, is now playing in select theaters.

In a clip for this coming Sunday's KUWTK, the tension between Kourt and Lord Disick hits a boiling as the reality TV starlet goes public with her new man, Younes Bendjima, at the Cannes Film Festival. Oh man!! Related: Scott & Sofia Are Loved Up In Milan! In May, back when this season of the E! hit was filmed, Miz Kardashian and her 24-year-old beau were all smiles as they cuddled up in the South of France. Lord D, in response to the PDA, flew to Cannes and got cozy with a bevy of young ladies -- including Bella Thorne, Chloe Bartoli, and current squeeze Sofia Richie. Well, it seems this move was out of jealousy as Disick even went as far as to threaten Kardashian's boyfriend. According to Kourtney, Scott warned her: "He goes, ‘You better watch your back — your little friend is going to get beat up.'" Jealousy is NOT a cute look, Scott!!
