So…what are you thinking?  Was Miley’s performance hot or not?  Do you think Miley Cyrus went too far in her performance with Robin Thicke or was she just trying to be different?  Let us know your opinion on our Oxymoron Entertainment Facebook page and Twitter with the hashtag #MileyHotOrNot.

As for the rest of the show…there were some pretty cool performances!  Justin Timberlake performed on the 2013 VMAs for quite a long time, some may say they even became bored, until the end that is!  At the end of his performance, Justin Timberlake brought out a very special surprise…his former boyband mates from N’Sync.  Now, we must admit, it was pretty cool.

We finally got to see Lady Gaga at the 2013 VMAs.  Gaga was interviewed on the streets of Brooklyn which served as the red carpet for the event held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.  Lady Gaga also opened the show with a great performance of her new single “Applause“.  By the end of her performance, Gaga was half naked with big hair…and we loved it!!

Check out some of these interesting facts about The Wizard of Oz below:

  1. Bert Lahr’s Cowardly Lion costume weighed almost 100 pounds and was made with real lion pelts.
  2. Judy Garland had to wear a corset in order to appear more childlike for her role as Dorothy. She was 16 years old when she made the movie.
  3. The early Technicolor process required more light than a normal film production, so the set temperatures often exceeded 100 degrees.
  4. In L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s slippers were silver. They were changed to “ruby” in order to take advantage of the Technicolor wow factor. Multiple sets were created for the film. A pair of the ruby slippers were stolen in 2005, but several others remain under lock and key.

CNN NEWS: HOLLYWOOD TAKES ON PORN (MIDDLE MEN)

 CNN News: Hollywood Takes On Porn (Middle Men)

Hollywood has been known to push the envelope with blockbuster films and is continually creating new genre’s that will interest moviegoers.  With millions flocking to theaters worldwide, we take a look at films that highlight a taboo subject matter, the adult film industry.  From an industry worth billions it is no surprise that Hollywood takes on porn and would try and create films focusing on this subject matter.  From Oxymoron Entertainment’s 2009 film entitled, “Middle Men” starring Luke Wilson about the internet porn industry, to 2013′s “Lovelace” starring Amanda Seyfried about a porn star, fans can find a wide selection to choose from.
CNN recently posted a slideshow containing a vast array of movies based on the subject, Hollywood takes on porn.  Oxymoron Entertainment’s Middle Men is one of many films based on the adult film industry, whether it be about the industry itself or about the actors that star in porn.
Middle MenIn 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores, and the world-wide-web was a new found discovery.  Businessman Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) had the perfect life – a beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies.  Then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two genius but troubled men, who had invented the way adult entertainment is sold over the internet.  When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds himself caught between a 23 year-old porn star and the FBI all the while becoming one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs of his time.  Witness a story so outrageous, you won’t believe it’s true. A story that proves business is a lot like sex… getting in is easy, pulling out is hard.

PHOBIAS IN HORROR FILMS

Phobias in Horror Films

So, we want to keep the conversation about scary movies going!  The release of the small film The Conjuring, recently, has become huge and has got us thinking a lot about horror films.

Scary movies or Horror films can have many different plots, from the babysitter stalker to the haunted lake or cabin!  I am sure you have seen them all!  Many scary movies revolve around phobias.  Phobias in horror films have been present throughout the decades.  According to Wikipedia, a phobia is an anxiety disorder usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational.  So, this is not typically something you may be a little bit scared of, but rather something you will DO ANYTHING to avoid!  Do you have any intense phobias?  Do you or anyone you know have a phobia so scary you think Hollywood could make a movie out of it?  Or maybe they have already made a movie about these phobias in horror films.  We want to know what you are most scared of!

Oxymoron Entertainment‘s movie Columbus Circle starring Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Kevin Pollak, and Giovanni Ribisi, among other great actors, is a perfect example of a horror movie or thriller revolving around an intense phobia.  According to the synopsis on Columbus Circle‘s website Columbuscirclemovie.com, Abigail Clayton (Selma Blair) lives alone, very alone.  In fact, the attractive heiress has not left her Manhattan loft apartment for almost two decades!  This is a great example of phobias in horror films.  Selma Blair‘s character suffers from Agoraphobia, or a severe disorder to which someone can become very afraid of leaving their house or home environment.  Check out Columbus Circle’s Facebook page and Twitter and let us know what you think!

On piperboy.jux.com, The Observer has put together a really cool slide show called Fears and Phobias in Horror Movies.  The slideshow lists quite a few phobias in horror films!  Check out the slideshow and give us your thoughts!  Go to our Oxymoron Entertainment Twitter page and use the #PhobiasInHorrorFilms and our Oxymoron Entertainment Facebook page and answer our questions:  Do you have any intense phobias?  Do you or anyone you know have a phobia so scary you think Hollywood could make a movie out of it?  You may not have a scientific name for your phobia (although I am sure there is one) but we still want to hear all about it and any stories that go along with it!  What absurd things have you done to avoid this person, place or thing?  We are dying to hear your responses!!!

While you are at it check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of the movie The Conjuring.  It has been blowing up at the box office and getting some scary reviews!  Were there any phobias present in this movie?  What do you think they were?  Don’t forget to leave your comments on our Oxymoron Entertainment Blog, Twitter and Facebook pages!
