Television has always been a medium of great success or nose-diving failures. Some last, some pass but no matter the brilliance or utter depravity of a show, they all have something in common: characters.
Beware the youth for they are the future, and sadly, they’re also seriously lacking on their cult film/classic cinema knowledge. Just the other day one said, “What is ‘Escape From New York’? I’ve never seen it.”
The state of foreign cinema in the United States has always been a troubled one. With Hollywood acting as an overwhelming force both stateside and overseas, it seems like a constant struggle for foreign films to get their due audience.
Have you noticed how rap stars have become like big name actors that give pop songs enhanced credibility? It’s as though pop songs are not good enough on their own without a rapper chiming in. It also might be because pop singers desperately need to prove their R&B credentials. Ironically, this trend also works in reverse. For example, would Eminem have gotten nearly as much mileage out of “Love The Way You Lie,” had Rihanna not also cooed along with that Detroit kingpin? These five examples of pop singers hanging out in the studio with rappers aren’t the first, and they certainly won’t be the last.
