Make tomorrow's kid-rated movies smokefree and save one million lives
#RateSmokingR Why do so many kids still start to smoke? America removed cigarette commercials from TV and radio nearly fifty years ago. But kid-rated movies — especially PG-13 movies — still push smoking at children and teens. In 2017, half of PG-13 movies featured smoking, the highest level in years. Smoking in movies kills in real life. Smoking on screen will recruit six million American kids to smoke in this generation. Two million of those kids will die from cancer and other diseases caused by smoking. Parents and health advocates demand a reasonable solution to this urgent problem. America's #1 killer deserves the R-rating. R-rating future movies with smoking will keep smoking OUT of movies rated G, PG and PG-13 — the movies that kids see most — and cut young audiences' deadly risk in half. The CDC says the R-rating will protect three million kids from tobacco addiction, America's #1 cause of preventable death. Film producers will still be able to include smoking in any movie they want, accepting an R-rating just as they routinely do for other content. Why won't Hollywood act? The major movie studios and movie theater chains run the film ratings. They know the harm done by onscreen smoking. Their leaders could update the R-rating tomorrow but, so far, they've refused. The tobacco industry, far richer than Hollywood, has a long history of exploiting movies to sell smoking, using paid product placement and other tactics. Movies are the last media channel pushing tobacco at kids, completely unrestricted. When it comes to life and death, Hollywood must follow a simple rule: One little letter "R" will save one million lives.

Get the Vampire Academy Series Back Into Production!
I got into a slump where reading wasn't one of my priorities. With school taking the majority of my attention, and family and friends taking the rest, it seemed I had no time to do one of the things that brought me great joy in the past. When school let out for the Summer, however, I realized I had a seemingly limitless amount of free time and I could practically do anything I wanted. Obviously, I used the beginning of the Summer to binge-watch Netflix. As I was scrolling through the action/adventure movie category, however, I saw a familiar title, "Vampire Academy". I saw the movie when it came out in 2014, and I knew it was also a book, but I never had time to read it. I watched the movie again, and for some reason, I had a strong inclination to read the novel. I sought it out; It was so interesting that I couldn't put it down. I was hooked, and all the characters began to feel like old friends. As I neared the end of Frostbite, the second book in the series, I began to wonder when the sequel to Vampire Academy would begin production. After dead end after dead end, I came across an article from Movie Pilot, which alerted me of the failed Indiegogo fundraiser to meet the money requirement Preger Entertainment requested. My heart sank at the idea of never seeing Rose and Dimitri's love progress on the big screen, as well as never seeing Queen Lissa eventually take control of the Dhampir and Moroi world. After I shared the movie and the books with my friends, and I broke to them the news of the canceled sequel to Vampire Academy, I saw in their eyes that they were just as broken hearted as I was. We wanted to see Richelle Mead's meritorious work be turned into a film series, and we set out to find a way to help make it possible. A few ideas were tossed around, and we decided the best choice of action was to create a petition to show production companies how popular and deserving the Vampire Academy series is of being turned into movies. Although we do not have a solution to the problem, we have talked about Preger Entertainment giving the production rights of the film series to another company (such as Summit Entertainment) that is willing to produce all the movies. We also thought about having Netflix take hold of the movie series. More importantly, however, we ask that all the willing actors and production team members are kept; Danila Kozlovsky, Zoey Deutch, Dominic Sherwood, Lucy Fry, Cameron Monaghan, and all the other talented actors are what made Vampire Academy so wonderful. I, along with many fans of the novels, truly just want the series to be turned into movies. I love the books with all my heart, and I can honestly say the Vampire Academy Novels make one of the best YA series around. The Vampire Academy Series deserves to be produced and turned into a film series.

Netflix Must Remove Argentinian Movie "Desire" for Child Pornography
A supporter reached out to us regarding the Argentinian movie, "Desearas" [Desire in English], an erotic drama with an opening scene that involves sexual content regarding a prepubescent child (more from the media here). We are absolutely against this scene being allowed as we believe it does violate the US Federal Law against child pornography, "any depiction of a minor under 18 years of age engaging in sexually explicit conduct is illegal." The mere fact that this child still has her clothes on does not take away from the fact that it sensationalizes the sexuality of young children as a source of entertainment, being viewed by adults who are watching this movie for erotic entertainment. Context like this is exactly what child predators seek - evidence to support their opinions that because children can experience sexual stimulation and that, as our biology is designed, experience pleasure from such stimulation, sexual contact with children is therefore normal and unharmful. Sexual scenes involving children are absolutely supportive of the pro-pedophilia culture that has gained strength through the birth of internet and social media, even being defended by the ACLU for promoting adult-child sexual relations being protected by free speech. Children deserve to live free from sexual exploitation and any media company that seeks to profit from it should be considered an accessory to child pornography distribution. Netflix and any media platform should ban the movie Desearas from being viewed. A message must be sent around the world that such scenes are dangerous and illegal.

Stop Tom Cruise from being Green Lantern.
We as comic book fans have already been robbed of the Green Lantern we deserve once. I for one refuse to stand by and let Tom Cruise ruin a great character the way the writing team for Green Lantern already did in 2011 (I know it wasn't you Ryan). Please don't let DC die and become an even bigger laughing stock. Tom Cruise will kill this Film, and the entire DCEU will follow. Cast Armie Hammer or Nathan Fillion, just don't let this happen. Fans unite! Disclaimer: The picture used is artwork by the talented Alex Ross and I in no way own or am associated with him or his amazing work.
Petition to Jim Carrey
Make Fire Marshall Bill: THE MOVIE
Fire Marshall Bill is a character who appeared in several sketches on the classic sketch comedy show In Living Color, which ran from 1990 to 1994. Fire Marshall Bill is a character portrayed by Jim Carrey prior to many of his most memorable roles. While Fire Marshall Bill has never been given notable exposure, he is still as complex and intriguing as Lloyd Christmas, Stanley Ipkiss, and Ace Ventura, in addition to all of Jim Carrey's other roles. His Modus Operandi is to annoy and destroy. He deserves his own movie, so that a new generation can follow his humorous antics and quips. Here, then, are my stipulations: 1. The character must be portrayed by Jim Carrey, no ifs, ands, or buts. Only he has the charm and wit to bring Mr. Burns back onto the silver screen. Very few alterations can be made to the character, and he must wear similar attire. 2. This film can explore Fire Marshall Bill's origins and psychology a bit deeper, and can be set a few years after the original sketches if need be, or in the present day. His wife, who appeared in the "Cruise" sketch, can appear. This, however, is optional. 3. The film must be taken seriously, and Jim Carrey must give the film his all. 4. The film must involve many humorous situations and injuries, in keeping with Fire Marshall Bill's general theme, but can still have a central conflict. 5. The film must conclude with a devastating catastrophe, either the detonation of an atomic bomb or the destruction of the Earth, or something of that nature. A less preferred conclusion would be the accidental saving of the world by Fire Marshall Bill and his acceptance into society, and possibly then another, more horrible catastrophe brought about by him. After, he must give one of his trademark quips. 6. There should be at least one passing reference to either Deadpool or the Black Night from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. 7. Very little CGI. Fire Marshall Bill's injuries must come about from the use of practical effects, and all disasters should be enacted through the use of grainy stock footage. CGI is not the way to go with this character. 8. Good lighting and music throughout. Self referential dance numbers would be good. In particular, you should use Staying Alive by the Bee Gees, due to Fire Marshall Bill's amazing abilities of recovery, or Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars, as a result of the many references to heat and firemen found throughout the song. This, then, is my plea. A faithful, nostalgic, witty reinterpretation of my favorite Jim Carrey character. Let it happen. Hear our cries, Jim Carrey, and know that Fire Marshall Bill must return. Fire Marshall Bill is a manifestation of chaos and optimism in the face of chaos, and he must return, rise from the ashes, as it were, and chuckle like a lunatic skeleton once again. Thus, my petition ends. Please take note.

Cast Riz Ahmed as the next James Bond 007
It’s time. British Asians are nearly 10% of the population yet film and television representation of Britain’s fastest growing population is does not reflect this. The film and television industry hasn't historically developed British Asian talent for mainstream success, despite a hungry audience, and diversity targets in TV and film organisations across the board. If the Bond films intend to appeal to global diverse audiences, it requires drastic steps. Ahmed’s critically-acclaimed roles in Four Lions, Nightcrawler and The Night Of showcases his versatile acting abilities. As Riz Ahmed has said, the average person sees something that reminds them of themselves and their experience on television, in films or in books, it signals that the viewer’s life has value and is important to society. It signals belonging.
