The Disaster Artist: The best movie about the creation of the worst movie ever?

James Franco, star of the 2010 biographical survival drama, 127 Hours, will now be seen as a quirky new character in his upcoming film, The Disaster Artist. Based on Tom Bissell and Gred Sestero’s award-winning book of the same title, James’s latest venture is actually a recapping account of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 cult classic, The Room. Wiseau’s melodramatic romance is commonly deemed as ‘the worst film ever made’. From the shoddy direction and production, to the script and acting (or lack thereof), every single aspect of the film received negative reviews from critics and viewers alike.

Any effort to point the potential harmful effects of these jokes is met with the usual dismissive response, “It’s just a joke!” I have been performing at clubs all over ...

The notorious Amir Liaquat invited an equally notorious Taher Shah to his Ramazan show, and well, had quite a bit of fun at Taher Shah’s expense on live television. Here’s a video of what he did: This treatment of Taher Shah has triggered an unpleasant response to Aamir Liaquat and his show; people believe that what he did was absolutely detestable.  According to them,  Shah is also a human being who didn’t deserve to be treated with such disrespect – especially on live television. In other words, Pakistanis are now defending someone they themselves took great pride in ridiculing when the song Eye ...

Eye To Eye: The music video that won the internet

Have you ever been in love so madly that you felt like no one has ever loved the same way before? Well, get the fat out of your head because you lose. Someone has loved like you never can… It is a “genyin killasic” (genuine classic) love that you are yet to experience. This love isn’t the kiss-and-cuddle kind.
