There’s no such term as “accidental overdose” it was made up by the mainstream media, idiots…

“Accidental overdose” is not an actual term. It was totally made up by the mainstream media and the sad part is that most people take it seriously. So just because the media says it then it must be true, huh? (sarcasm)

I repeat there is no such thing as accidental overdose. They not only called the Scott Weiland death, “accidental overdose”… they called Heath Ledger that too. They only call it “accidental overdose” when a famous person dies. The fake term “accidental overdose” is just a lame ass excuse used by the media to describe a death of a famous person who died of drugs that they took on “purpose”. It doesn’t make sense to call an overdose “accidental”. It’s just silly. Foolish if you think about it. If you take drugs, you are purposefully doing that to yourself. If you die of it, then it’s your fault. Drugs don’t find their way into human bodies accidentally. There’s nothing “accidental” about it.

The term “accidental overdose” was used so this famous person who died of drugs wouldn’t get so much flak for it from the public and I’m pretty sure the media lied about it being “accidental”. Why did they choose the words “accidental overdose”? To avoid lawsuit from family members? Maybe that’s a part of it. Maybe the family wanted it that way as well?

Why not be realistic about it and call it just an “overdose” ’cause that’s what it really was technically.

That term “accidental overdose” first came up when Heath Ledger died. There is a such a thing as “accidental death” but it’s not the same thing as “accidental overdose”. I do know that the term “accidental overdose” means that he never intended to commit suicide but whether it’s an accident or not, it’s a suicide no matter what you think of it. If you take drugs, you did that to yourself.

When a famous person dies and they call it “accidental overdose”, it’s just the media’s sneaky way of never admitting that this person did it to themselves. They can’t accept the fact that they did it to themselves. They can’t take the truth and it is bothering them. So the media calls it “accidental overdose” so they don’t lose their viewers and their audience.

Just a few things to think about for a few minutes.

Netflix Pick: The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

So last night, for my Saturday night movie, I decided to check out “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus”. Another film I wanted to see that happened to be on Netflix streamable.

This is another excellent film that I was impressed with. I think it’s one of Terry Gilliam’s best films. Terry Gilliam is the man behind all the Monty Python flicks such as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail’, “Monty Python and the Life of Brian”, he also did, “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen”, “Twelve Monkeys” and “Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas”.

The story of “Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” takes place in London, England, where Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) would show an audience a sideshow troupe where he would take them to a journey into the “Imaginarium” which makes dreams come true. Parnassus tells a story to his daughter Valentina, Percy the midget and Anton that Parnassus is immortal and he has lived for a thousand years. He fell in love with a mortal woman, made a deal with the devil, trading his immortality to the youth. As part of the bargain, he promised his son or daughter to Mr. Nick on their sixteenth birthday. Valentina is now almost to the doomed age and Doctor Parnassus makes a new bet with Mr. Nick, whoever seduces five souls in the Imaginarium will have Valentina as a prize. Meanwhile the troupe rescues Tony, a young man that was hanged on a bridge by the Russians. Tony was chased until he finds and joins the group.

While the plot is very strange and a little confusing, I thought this a very well made movie. It was fun. It had great performances but I was most impressed with the style of the movie. It was very visual and creative. Different.

Some of you may or may not know that this was Heath Ledger’s final film before his death. He only had a small role in this film but it was an excellent performance, of course. Heath was originally supposed to star throughout the entire film but he obviously died around the time the movie was still filming. So Terry Gilliam hired three actors to take over the role of Tony which were: Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell. All three of those actors did a great job playing Tony, but of course, they couldn’t top Heath’s performance in the role.

The film had some unique costumes, and unique cinematography I’ve never seen before. This is a very different Terry Gilliam movie than all the others. You all know how some of his movies can be weird. The guy has a strange imagination when it comes to storytelling. Terry wrote and directed most of his movies so all of this is his creation. He’s quite an interesting guy.

If you like Terry Gilliam flicks, this is one worth checking out.

Thought: What would the Batman movies be like without Christopher Nolan???

Chris Nolan announced the sad and not so surprising news that he’ll be quitting the Batman movies, after the “Dark Knight: Rises“. Warner Bros. will probably continue to make more Batman movies without Chris, but it makes you wonder what would happen if a director other than Chris helms a Batman movie? Here’s what I think. Nobody can make a better Batman movie than Christopher Nolan, period. I think we all know that. I’m a little worried that when Chris Nolan leaves after “DK: Rises”, the Batman franchise will go back to making crap movies again. Maybe a different director can make a good Batman movie, who knows…if a different director does happen to make a good Batman movie without Nolan being involved, it could be possible, but no other director could top Nolan. Nolan made the Batman movies the way they are supposed to be.

Hell, I’m even a little nervous about Chris Nolan’s “DK: Rises” flick that he’s planning. You’ll never know that the “DK: Rises” could turn out to be a shit movie or might turn out ok, but nothing will be better than ‘The Dark Knight” with Heath Ledger. I think, “The Dark Knight” is the best Batman movie out of all of them made from the past. I don’t just like, “The Dark Knight” just for Heath Ledger’s performance alone, he was great, don’t get me wrong. I like the whole movie overall ’cause it told a great story and the action was just amazing.

Don’t expect anybody to make a great Batman movie ever again. “The Dark Knight” was a very special film in so many ways. “The Dark Knight” should have gotten BEST PICTURE for the Oscars as well which didn’t make it that year. “The Dark Knight” was just a perfect Batman film, that I’ll never get tired of watching it. “Rises” won’t be any better, I bet your money on it. People want the next Batman flick to be better, but I don’t think it will happen. That’s how powerful, “The Dark Knight” film really is.

Just my 2cents folks, just don’t get all excited about “Rises” this soon.

Thought: What if Heath Ledger loses his Oscar…again?

Heath was once nominated for “Brokenback Mountain” in 2005, but he never got the win. Could the same happen this year? This is one of the award categories that can be unpredictable. Never assume that Heath Ledger could automatically get the win because of his death.

Could this be Robert Downey Jr’s lucky day and he could actually win for his role in “Tropic Thunder”? Could Josh Brolin get the lucky win for “Milk”? What about Phillip Seymour Hoffman for “Doubt”, or Michael Shannon for “Revolutionary Road”? Any of the other guys can get it.

It all depends on the most votes the Academy gave them the win for. If Robert Downey Jr. wins this, that would be shocking.

If Heath Ledger doesn’t win, then I think that’s what he would have wanted. I’ve read somewhere that he never really wanted to be an Oscar winner? I remember reading somewhere on the internet that Heath was relieved that he didn’t win for “Brokenback Mountain” for some reason. If Heath doesn’t win, then it’s no big deal for me and I’ll take it for what it is.

I’m sure there’ll be an angry public outrage by Batman fans if Heath doesn’t win but if you use a little common sense, if Heath was still alive today, he would think his performance is better than getting an Oscar nomination. So, he wouldn’t worry about losing an Oscar again. I don’t think he ever wanted to be an Oscar winner like he once said, so treat his true wishes with heart and respect.

Report: Christian Bale not too friendly when being messed with while filming…

TMZ posted an audio clip of Christian Bale on a temper tantrum, screaming at film makers while filming “Terminator: Salvation”, swearing and threatening them with violence and everything.

Click here to listen:

Me thinks, Christian hasn’t been the same since Heath Ledger died, I think he’s still upset over the death of Heath.

On top of that, I think the film makers of “Terminator: Salvation” deserved the smackdown by Christian 100%. Sounds like they were giving Christian a hard time, being a bunch of dicks to the actor (you can hear the crew laughing at him in the background).

This is why Hollywood film makers shouldn’t piss off their actors. The actors are worth a lot of money being paid over $20 million for just one film. Honestly, Christian isn’t doing anything wrong here, sounds to me the crew provoked him and he lashed out in return.

Nice job Christian, show them shady Hollywood film makers that you aren’t to be messed with!!!

Report: Heath’s Golden Globe trophy belongs to daughter Matilda now…

Heath’s mother says the late actor’s daughter will be keeping the award that the legendary actor won from last night’s Golden Globe awards. Heath won of course for Best Supporting Actor for “The Dark Knight” as the Joker. I would imagine that the Oscar that Heath will probably win will be going to Matilda as well.

More on it here:

That’s a good thing they are doing and a perfect way for Matilda to get to know her father as she gets older.

When Heath picks up his Oscar award, Christopher Nolan shouldn’t pick it up for him. Who should? No one other than Matilda herself. It would be so cute to see Michelle walk up on stage with Matilda to pick up Heath’s Oscar. Matilda should go on stage at the Oscars to pick up Heath’s award. I doubt it would happen but it would be a very touching moment for the Oscars. The Oscar statue maybe a little heavy for a little girl to pick up but I”m sure award presenters or Michelle will help her out.
