Flutter: Fatal Attraction, the original ending

For Halloween, Mallory & Tamu watched Fatal Attraction and talked about the controversy surrounding film’s ending. Unfortunately, they neglected to Google the original film ending at the time. So today, they watched the original end of the movie and it was startlingly different.

Moral to the Story: No roll in the hay is worth hurting yourself.

Watch the original ending of Fatal Attraction.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Glenn Close meets a fatal end regardless of the ending.
  • Anne Archer should not ever run after Dan.
  • If the ending of the movie was the original edit, perhaps future movie tropes of “crazy women” and the pop culture surrounding it would be different.
  • The original edit really makes you think about mental illness.
  • Now that the times have changed, the movie should be reedited to the original version.
  • Bad at Love’s Alternate Ending: Glenn Close and Anne Archer kill Dan, take his insurance money and flee to Mexico where Glenn has her baby and everyone is happy. Sort of like Big Little Lies.

Episode 14: Nappily Ever After: A Little Bit Disappointing…A Lot

Tamu and Mallory read Trisha R. Thomas’s Nappily Ever After and compare it to the Netflix  adaptation. Let’s just say there were high expectations which were sadly not met. However, both the book and movie are pioneers for moving natural hair into the mainstream; hopefully the next movies and books about natural hair will be even better.

Moral to the Story: We are beautiful regardless of what comes out of our heads.

Other Fun Topics Discussed: 

  • The protagonist is really a selfish human.
  • She cut her hair off and had no new growth as a person.
  • Mallory liked the first chapter of the book.
  • Communication is important in relationships.
  • Don’t get blasted and share feelings because you may end up engaged.
  • Book break up vs. Insecure breakup between Issa & Lawrence.
  • Mallory wondered if the movie was for white people to get an idea of black women & their hair.
  • The movie’s theme is “if a black man approves”
  • Most Ridiculous Movie Quote: “Men want realness”
  • Anything with a dick can still be a dick.
  • Women & beauty standards.
  • Sex in the shower can be a thing on wash day.
  • Miraculously Sanaa’s character can braid, but was unable to do her own hair.
  • Don’t assume because someone is wearing a scarf that they have cancer.
  • Mallory found the sexism in the movie!
  • Tamu talks about the moment when she cut her hair off.
  • Mallory finds the misogyny in the final pool scene between the father and mother!
  • Bad@Love Remakes this Movie: Would have been better to see someone with more power in their hands.
  • Myth Busted: Going natural is not cheap, nor is it quick.
  • The World According to Mallory: Online dating = Love resumes so use grammar and spell check.
  • Tamu compares the movie to bad tequila.

Flutter: Irresistible Mistakes…!

This week, Tamu and Mallory make unsurprising romantic choices when they play Irresistible Mistakes an online dating simulation game from Voltage, Inc. An otome game, this story-based game is targeted towards women.

Moral to the Story: Read a book, watch a movie, or play The Sims 4 instead.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

The main character wakes up from a night of dirty, sexy times and DOES NOT SHOWER!

The use of …! for everything the main character is thinking.

Not shockingly Tamu ended up with someone who has closed himself off to love.

Unsurprisingly Mallory ended up with someone whose heart is unavailable.

Mallory Recommends: There is a pigeon simulation game called Hatoful Boyfriend that is her FAVORITE.  She says to keep playing, it isn’t how you think.

Episode 13: City of Joy

We watched the Netflix documentary, “City of Joy” and learned that sexual violence has been used as a weapon of the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 1996. Women in this region continue to be raped, mutilated and murdered for conflict minerals (Tantalum – aka Coltan, Tungsten, Tin, and Gold) that are used in our cell phones, electronics, cars, and jewelry.

City of Joy has been opened since 2011 and empowers the women who have been brutalized, to learn new skills, love their bodies, release the stigma of being raped, and become leaders in their communities. 1117 women have graduated the program since it began.

Moral to the Story: “The antidote to injustice is progress.” — Stacey Abrams

Let’s Get Educated:

What can you do? Watch the movie, donate, tell others that this is still happening, find out if your phone and electronics companies are using conflict minerals. If they are, let them know you want no part of their products. Our dollars speak VOLUMES!
