Jaden Smith Out Dressed Every Girl at Prom

The internet may be freaking out, but Jaden Smith is an absolute genius. He is the only 17 year-old who not only thought of dressing in a white Batman suit to his Senior Prom, but he actually did wear a white Batman suit to his Senior Prom.

 

My reaction to this? WHERE DID YOU GET THAT OUTFIT, JADEN? And can everyone rock it so well?!

So why are people going nuts about Jaden’s outfit choice? I’m not exactly sure. The trolls are out there, but I think it is because people are jealous they didn’t do it first. Technically, Jaden has worn the outfit before at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding last May.

So Far This Week…May 28, 2014

Oh my stars and garters, Hushsters! We’ve skipped an entire week of news. In our defense, we were a little busy. We took a trip to Houston to visit Taylor Lowe, where we went to Comicpalooza. Not only was it a great time, but it was also kind of a milestone moment for us. We went as press for the first time, interviewed Batman artist Greg Capullo (also a first), met Stan “The Man” Lee, geeked out at the Buffy panel, and lots more. Check back on the site, or here for more of our Comicpalooza stuff, including a James Marsters panel and an in-depth synopsis of the weekend.

 

LeVar Burton is Kickstarting to relaunch Reading Rainbow. Will it work? Hell yeah it will; the campaign is “flying twice as high,” already shattering it’s $1,000,000 goal in less than 24 hours. “Take a look; it’s in a book. Reading Raaaainbow!”

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released this past weekend. It was “cool,” but we weren’t really that impressed. Here is my full review (SPOILER FREE) of the movie. On the bright side, they’ve released what the special edition Blu-Ray set will look like (August release?) and we will definitely be picking that up.

Sad times, as we lost one of the world’s greatest poets and civil rights’ activists in Maya Angelou.

A bunch of peeps are being cast for Season 5 of Game of Thrones. If you’re a book noob like me, then you probably don’t know who any of these guys are.

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are better at acting than you are.

The Hateful Eight will start filming in November. The Quentin Tarantino film was canned previously when the script was leaked, but the director has since had a change of heart.

There goes more of that #SixSeasonsAndAMovie Community talk, with Hulu being the newest candidate to pick up the freshly canceled show.

Don’t say Denzel is an too old to kick ass… speaking of, when did Hit-Girl start looking like that?

My most anticipated game of the summer came out yesterday. Watch Dogs promises to be an open world adventure of hacking goodness – the game has already broken the company’s record for single-day sales (the same company that owns Assassin’s Creed, mind you). The release hasn’t been smooth sailing, though, as bomb threats and crippling glitches have slowed it down. Hopefully we can sit down and murder this game to have a review to you in the next couple weeks.

If you’re already over hacking, then check out this extended trailer for Arkham Knight, complete with gameplay.

We like to think our Game of Thrones reviews are decent, but let’s be honest: if we could watch Seth Rogan and Snoop Dogg get high and then review GoT every week, we probably wouldn’t write them anymore.

Boardwalk Empire alumnus Charlie Cox will be playing lead Matt Murdock in the Netflix original Marvel series, Daredevil. I loved his work on Boardwalk, so I think this is a great pick-up.

DC Comics has gone through quite the transformation since they launched 52 new books in 2011… but here we are in 2014, and they’re close to canceling 52 books in three years. Yikes.

The guy who played Barry Allen in the 1991 series has been cast as Barry Allen’s father in the new Flash TV Series.

Comic book legend Alan Moore is launching a mobile app called Electricomics, designed to help self-publish independent creators. This could be the answer to what creators do after ComiXology was acquired by Amazon earlier in the year.

Ben Templesmith is releasing his Kickstarter-backed The Squidder, a four issue series post-apocalyptic tale.

Here are this year’s Television Critics Award nominationsOrange is the New Black getting a nomination is HUGE. Could online streaming television really be the future of how we watch shows?

Marvel is looking to do something superhero-ey, but not what you’d expect. Grab your 3D printer and get ready to recharge your imagination with Big Hero 6.

Ooh! That reminds me, ComiXology is giving away a free comic book each day for 20 days. We are currently on day three, where you can pick up My Little Pony: Pony Tales Vol. 1. Check back each day; they occasionally have cool stuff, too (if My Little Pony isn’t your thang).

That Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist webseries we were talking about a while ago? Yeah, well it’s out. And it’s the shit. Devour it all right now.

Here’s Johnny! Depp plays Whitey in next month’s documentary, WHITEY: America vs. James Bulgar.

Jaden Smith wore a Batman costume to Kim K.’s wedding. And it was white. Who wears white on the brides day? Really?

The Mad Men mid-season finale involved a very odd musical number.

The Batman vs. Superman film finally got a full title, Dawn of Justice.

BATMAN… IN SPACE!!! LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham was announced. We’re just add that to the list of things we’re going to go broke for.

I will start off by saying that I liked After Earth.  It had everything that I like in my entertainment: science fiction, a little bit of fantasy, a survivalist plot, and an unlikely hero.  I thought the acting was good.  I thought the special effects were decent.  I liked that even though it was an M. Night. Shyamalan film (SPOILER), there was no crazy twist.  I was a little worried that there would be a twist and that it would be that it wasn’t Earth after all.

So why have other critics given it such bad reviews?  I think because the film was marketed badly.  The good part of the marketing was to not mention M. Night Shyamalan’s involvement.  But it was made to look like a film starring Will Smith, which is really for adults.  But he was a supporting actor to his young son Jaden.  Jaden Smith was the star here, so it was misleading to make the star Will.  It may have received better reception had the film been marketed as “young adult” a la The Hunger Games.

(Major Spoilers ahead.  Skip this paragraph if you don’t want to know details)  The background of After Earth is that an alien invasion is going to happen on the new civilization of Nova Prime.  The Ursas are aliens who can smell human fear.  They are ruthless.  But Cypher Raige can kill them.  He is able to by “ghosting”, or turning off his fear.  He teaches this method and other military regimens to the people of Nova Prime.  His son, Kitai is one of these people.  Kitai is denied advancement to become a Ranger at the beginning of the film.  Kitai’s mother convinces Cypher to take Kitai on his last mission.  It goes wrong and they crash-land on to Earth, which humans have not inhabited in over 1,000 years.  The beacon that could send an emergency signal to their people is on the tail of the ship, which landed about 60 miles from their location.  In the crash, the whole crew except Cypher and Kitai die.  Cypher breaks his leg badly and Kitai must brave the Earth to retrieve the beacon.  All with the possibility that the Ursa they were smuggling on the ship may have survived the crash and is roaming around waiting to kill.

I thought the action was great.  Because Jaden has already played the “Karate Kid”, it was easy for him to play this role well.  Other critics didn’t care for the acting.  Because Jaden is the main actor in the movie, I think it is a little unfair to give a 15 year old such a harsh reaction.  He has grown up in Hollywood, but because he is the son of a superstar, and starring in roles right next to his father, it becomes very easy to see his setbacks as an actor.  But his father has been perfecting his craft since he too was a teenager.  Will Smith is now 44 years old.  And as you may recall, Will Smith didn’t start out in major motion pictures playing action heroes, he started out on television playing, well, himself.  So let’s give Jaden a break.  He did a great job.

The story was good.  There weren’t any major plot holes that I saw. Kitai was a normal teenager with a shaky past.  He has some issues psychologically due to his father’s sterile treatment of him and his sister’s death, which he blames himself for.  The intense scenes of Kitai vs. Nature kept me at the edge of my seat for the majority of the movie.  I really enjoy survivalist movies.  The new world was easy to imagine if it were to be abandoned.  The beginning scenes of Nova Prime are breathtaking.  The special effects of the sky were spectacular.  Could After Earth have been better?  Perhaps, but for a simple plot, I think it was tops.  Lots of action, good acting, no sex and not too much gore.  That’s a winner for me.
