Declicked: Celebrity Deaths You Probably Didn’t Hear About

1.Deaths - Declicked: Celebrity Deaths You Probably Didn’t Hear About

“Declicked” is a series that suffers through click-bait with misleading cover stories and copies everything onto one page. There are some celebrities who are such big superstars it would be impossible not to hear about it if they died. But, there are others who were in our favorite tv shows and movies, and then just seemed to disappear. Some celebrities we grew up watching, and others who have been on the small and the big screen more recently, have passed away without anyone really finding out about what happened. For…

Job-shamed ‘Cosby Show’ actor exposes addiction to judging

Geoffrey Owens

It was called a “feel good” story, but it was all about feeling bad. A 50-year-old woman was shopping with her 40-year-old wife at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey. At the checkout counter, they noticed a slightly heavyset cashier with a graying beard. He was ringing up and bagging groceries. “I said, ‘Wait a minute, that’s the guy from The Cosby Show,” Karma Lawrence would tell the media. Had this been 30 years ago, the incident would have ended there, and you would not know a thing about it.…

A representative for Owens told CNN that he has accepted a job offer from Tyler Perry, who tweeted earlier this week that he wanted Owens to appear on his OWN television show, “The Haves and The Have Nots.” Owen’s exact role on the show is unknown, but he’ll appear on multiple episodes.   #Actor #GeoffreyOwens responds to the apology from woman who took the picture of him working at #TraderJoe’s: “I say that’s very cool, and I say I accept that… if I could see her now, I could totally…

Former Cosby show star shamed for having a job gets job offer from Tyler Perry

Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens

  Events after the Trader Joe’s job-shaming incident. Owens has taught acting classes at Yale and has appeared on several television shows over the years such as The Affair and Lucifer, but he said no job has lasted more than 10 weeks. The Trader Joe’s gig gave him the flexibility to audition while earning a steady check. Owens has now quit his grocery store job that he had been at for 15 months because all of the new-found attention made it impossible to remain working there. But, it’s likely that Owens will see a slew…

Former Cosby Show star has pleasant job with health insurance and teaches Shakespeare

Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens

Recently I came across a D-Bag blog has posted a story about “Faded” Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens was now a “starving actor” working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s. Those that think having a pleasant job in a happy environment (with health insurance) can make someone “faded” are mistaken as to what being an actor or getting roles entails. Or do these clowns actually think that having a recurring role on a show for a handful of years makes you rich beyond your wildest dreams to the point of…

The False Long Take

The Long shot

The Long Take The long take is one of the most impressive techniques used in film. Consider the challenge of Maintaining exposure and focus, choreographic the camera and actors, hitting every mark on time. This happens all at once and is undeniably difficult. But some of the most heralded long takes are the result of visual effects and a lot of planning. They’re made to look like long shots but are, in fact, stitched together and carefully edited. The False Long Take Alfred Hitchcock used the basic technique of obscuring…

Film Guages and their effects – Super 8, 16mm, 35mm, 65mm, IMAX 65

Film gauges

Film Gauges The film gauge that filmmakers use – the width of the strip – heavily affects the mood and tone of the movie. While many filmmakers today choose to gravitate towards digital, Paul Thomas Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and Quinton Tarantino have been very strong advocates for keeping film alive. Today there are just a few major gauges of film Super 8 16mm 16 millimeter film is grainier and often results in a dirtier texture. Think about  the raw and unpolished look of low budget horror films from the 70’s…

Movie Scenes: Goodfellas – One dog goes one way and the other goes the other.

The Goodfellas Painting

One of my favorite movie little bits in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas: Joe Pesci‘s character Tommy at Robert De Niro‘s Jimmy make a stop at the home of his mother – played by Martin Scorsese‘s mother Catherine Scorsese – to pick up a shovel to bury their Billy Batts … situation. MOTHER: Have some more. You hardly touched anything. Did Tommy tell you about my painting? Look at this. (Pulls out an oil painting from alongside the refrigerator.) JIMMY: It’s beautiful. TOMMY: I like this one. One dog goes one way…

Al Pacino revisits flop of his career.

MW GG587 Pacino ZH 20180402012149 - Al Pacino revisits flop of his career.

Not many leading actors would come out to support their biggest movie flop over three decades, but Al Pacino has always been special. Pacino signed off a 34-film retrospective of his work at New York City’s Quad Cinema by making an appearance at a special screening of his 1985 historical drama, “Revolution.” Made for $28 million, considered a sizable budget in the 1980s, “Revolution” is set against the backdrop of the Revolutionary War and grossed barely over $350,000, according to Box Office Mojo. But Pacino, 77, remains proud of the…
