Movies Unchained

The Toy Story films have always been a part of my life. The first film was released when I was a child, and I eagerly watched the adventures of Sherriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear over the years, seeing them go from one film to another, constantly being captivated by these sentient toys and their charming […]

Who could forget when Lindsay Lohan totally slammed Zendaya for her 2019 Met Gala dress? The Greatest Showman star’s Cinderella-inspired gown was a fan-favorite, so when the Mean Girls actress had some, well, mean things to say about it, fans were definitely taken aback. So how did Z feel about the criticism? Turns out, she totally just brushed it off. “I didn’t feel hurt by it and it didn’t make me sad because I have no idea what that person is going through,” the K.C. Undercover actress told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday. “Maybe in some strange way, that comment made them feel better that day. People are only negative because negativity is eating away at them.” What was there not to like about Zendaya’s look, you ask? Well, the 22-year-old star paid homage to Cinderella by rocking a Tommy Hilfiger gown that legit changed colors, thanks to some crazy fashion technology — and her longtime stylist Law Roach. The Spider-Man leading lady also carried a carriage-shaped clutch to honor the Disney classic. And if that wasn’t enough, she even left behind a glass slipper while walking up the iconic steps of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It was all nothing short of magical, but Lindsay felt as though it had been done before. You see, 40-year-old actress Claire Danes wore a similar dress to the 2016 Met Gala for the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme. “Claire Danes did that with @zacposen already,” Lindsay wrote on an Instagram post of Zendaya’s look back in May. The Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club star added, “@clairedanes you wore this dress so beautifully, I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.” Considering the fact that neither Claire nor Zendaya were making it a competition, can’t we just all agree that they both looked absolutely stunning?

The countdown is real. Spider-Man: Far from Home will release in one week, and we will hopefully get some closure as the uber emotional Phase 3 comes to an end.  This movie is checking off all of the right boxes when it comes to another Marvel blockbuster, and I would imagine, based on pre-sale ticket […]

In the last couple of weeks, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Milwaukee Bucks both earned themselves a dubious honor. Each was crowned a champion … of next season’s betting odds. (Congrats! That and $2.45 will get you a large[footnote]Sorry, venti.[/footnote] coffee at Starbucks.) According to data provided to FiveThirtyEight by the betting sites SportsBetting.ag and BetOnline.ag, Tampa Bay was installed as 8-to-1 favorites to win the 2020 Stanley Cup within hours of the St. Louis Blues winning the 2019 Stanley Cup, while the Bucks were made 9-to-2 favorites for next year’s NBA title before the confetti even settled on the Toronto Raptors’ 2019 victory. It’s all part of a movement toward increased focus on next year’s potential winners, practically before the current champs can even be entered into the record books. “The day-after, next-year title odds have certainly become a big deal in our industry,” said Scott Cooley, a spokesman for the two oddsmakers above. “We started doing them with the online books maybe six to seven years ago, and Vegas has caught on over the last couple of years.” The media has hopped on the trend as well in recent years. ESPN reported on the 2020 NBA favorite picks in the betting markets roughly 17 hours after the Raptors’ Game 6 win over the Golden State Warriors ended,[footnote]ESPN is owned by Disney, which also owns ABC News, which owns FiveThirtyEight.[/footnote] and often the reports will come even sooner after the championship than that. Speculation about the next champ can practically bump the current champ out of the news cycle. Those two kinds of teams — current champs and speculative future champs — overlap surprisingly infrequently, depending on the sport. In the data we analyzed, which covers the four major men’s pro leagues going back to either 2009 (for the NBA, MLB and NFL) or 2010 (NHL), the just-crowned champion was installed as the following season’s favorite 17 times in 45 chances (38 percent). Six of the 12 defending NBA champs since 2009 were in that category, which makes sense for a sport in which previous postseason success plays a disproportionate role in the championship hunt. By comparison, the defending Super Bowl winner was instantly named the next NFL favorite just three times in 11 chances over the same span, a number that includes the current Patriots, who are fresh off a win in Super Bowl LIII. The Pats are perennial next-day picks, gaining that distinction seven times in the 11 NFL seasons we looked at, including 2019. (That’s sort of what happens when you maintain the top dynasty in the history of football, if not all of pro sports.) But even the Patriots have failed to convert those next-day titles into real ones with some regularity: They won as favorites in 2016 and 2018, but lost in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2017. That’s not too surprising — if we look at the history of next-day favorites, they lose far more often than they win (because even the favorite is typically an underdog against the field): How often have next-day favorites won? Eventual championship status for teams named next-day favorites according to the betting markets NHL NBA Season Team Won? Team Won? 2020 Lightning ?

Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG A new champion doesn’t always get very much respect from the oddsmakers in the immediate wake of its victory. The Raptors, for instance, opened the 2020 championship betting at fourth in the NBA (8-to-1 odds), while the Blues started 2020 in a tie for fifth in the NHL (12-to-1 odds) right after hoisting the Cup. Most of the time, however, the champs stay pretty close to the top of the sport. Only five of the 45 new champs we looked at fell out of the top five for their league when looking ahead to the following season: The 2008 Philadelphia Phillies (sixth looking ahead to 2009), the 2015 Denver Broncos (seventh for 2016), the 2018 Washington Capitals (eighth for 2019), the 2011 New York Giants (eighth for 2012) and the 2012 Baltimore Ravens (13th for 2013). Number of champions in the NBA, MLB, NFL and NHL with a certain ranking in the next-day betting odds for the following season, since 2009 Rank Count 1st 17 – 2nd 12 – 3rd 5 – 4th 2 – 5th 4 – 6th 1 – 7th 1 – 8th 2 – 9th 0 10th 0 11th 0 12th 0 13th 1 – Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG This summer was actually an unusual moment in that regard, between the NBA and NHL. It was the first time in our data where both leagues’ champions opened in fourth place or worse in the next season’s odds at the same time. This is perhaps because both the Raptors and Blues were first-time champions in their respective sports, and each was a relative surprise champion as well (the Blues began the season as the 19th-ranked betting choice, 40-to-1 to win it all, while the Raptors were ninth with 60-to-1 title odds). This isn’t the first time the books have shown an affinity for a team — like, say, the Lightning — whose previous season didn’t end in glorious fashion. But that doesn’t happen very often. Granting that some sports’ playoff structures don’t feature rounds of equivalent size before their playoff quarterfinals,[footnote]Both the NBA and NHL feature a round of 16 before their quarterfinals, while MLB and the NFL each have a round of 12.[/footnote] Tampa Bay joined the 2012 Pittsburgh Penguins and 2010 Miami Heat as the only teams in our sample to exit in the first round of the NBA or NHL playoffs and then immediately become championship favorites the day after the playoffs ended. (And that Heat team comes with a special disclaimer we’ll talk about later.) Number of next-day betting odds favorites in the NBA, MLB, NFL and NHL that finished the previous playoffs a given number of rounds from the championship, since 2009 Rounds From Championship Count 0 16 – 1 12 – 2 9 – 3 6 – 4 3 – Sources: SPORTSBETTING.AG, BETONLINE.AG More than half of the freshly minted next-day favorites in our sample had either just won (35 percent) or lost (26 percent) in their sport’s championship round. So it’s pretty unusual to see a team such as the Lightning flame out in the playoffs and then immediately be named favorites for the following season. Then again, Tampa Bay had been named next-day favorites going into the 2018-19 season as well (after losing a tough seven-game conference final to the eventual-champ Capitals), then proceeded to rattle off one of the most dominant regular seasons in hockey history before falling flat in one of the game’s most epic playoff disappointments. The 2019 NHL playoffs were a chaotic mess anyway — the eventual champs fired their coach midseason and were playoff longshots for most of the regular season — so it might have been the perfect mix of factors to elevate a team back to favorite status despite a postseason flop. These next-day odds can change pretty quickly anyway. Although the Bucks were technically 2020 favorites in the moments after Toronto won it all, the Los Angeles Lakers usurped that distinction just a day later, being installed as 7-to-2 favorites after trading for former Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis. It was a pretty remarkable leap to the top of the heap, given that LeBron James and LA didn’t even make the playoffs the previous season. (None of the next-day favorites we’ve been looking at in this data set could say that.) But that’s nothing compared with the summer of 2010, when the oddsmakers avoided officially releasing the next-day NBA odds altogether. We included their first batch of odds in the calculation above — hence the Heat’s jump to No. 1 for 2011 — but those numbers were actually released after free agency had begun. Although the 2010 season ended on June 17, odds for 2011 weren’t posted until July 9 because of the uncertainty around LeBron’s free-agency “Decision.” Considering that this summer may rival 2010 in terms of the amount of NBA talent on the move, it’s not impossible that the 2020 favorite in the NBA betting markets will shift again in the next few weeks. The era of immediate speculation does nothing to help temper the expectations placed on teams who are “supposed” to win. For example, the Los Angeles Dodgers — who haven’t won a World Series since 1988 — have been named next-day favorites twice in the past six seasons (in 2014 and 2015) and have never ranked lower than third place in the next-day odds over that span. With each passing instance of an on-paper championship (and no real one), a team’s disappointment comes even more into focus. But the trend of impatiently looking ahead to next season doesn’t seem like it will let up anytime soon. As the lines begin to blur between one season’s end and the next one’s beginning — particularly given the way fans consume sports now and how the media covers it — there’s too much interest in far-off futures odds for anyone to ignore them. So that means we’re in store for plenty more speculative champions being crowned, even if the actual ones aren’t finished celebrating yet.

Congrats guys! The vlogger, who recently supported her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne after she ‘took back the power’ by sharing her own nudes following a hacker threat, shared the news on Twitter. ‘JAKE JUST PROPOSED,’ she wrote, later adding: ‘I’m……. engaged………………’ When asked if it was a joke, the 21-year-old insisted: ‘It’s not. i’m engaged. holy f***.’ Also sharing a video of a cake with a huge ring on top reading: ‘Will you marry me Tana?’, the star showed off a huge ring, proving that these two definitely don’t do things by halves. However, some fans are questioning if the whole thing is really legit. The pair have been inseparable (Picture: Getty Images for Fashion Nova) ‘Did jake paul actually propose to tana mongeau at a night club at 2 am after dating for like 2 months or am i tripping,’ one asked. Another added: ‘Wait i thought the tana mongeau and jake paul dating thing was just a joke.’ Tana shared the news on Twitter (Picture: @tanamongeau) ‘TANA MONGEAU IS ENGAGED TO JAKE PAUL… WHAT??? I AM LITERALLY SCREAMING AT 5:48am on a Monday morning,’ an over-excited fan revealed. Tana and Jake started ‘dating’ back in May, after she split from her ex Brad Sousa, who she accused of cheating on her. Since, the pair have been inseparable, even creating a family channel with YouTube kids Tydus and Ryatt Talbott. We just don’t know what to believe anymore (Picture: Instagram) Meanwhile, for Tana’s birthday, the Team 10 member bought her a Mercedes Benz G-Wagen – as you do, before heading off to Las Vegas. ‘Never give up on your dreams, kids,’ she wrote. ‘THANK U BABY.’ Tana, who previously dated former Disney star Bella Thorne for over a year, has also been sharing a racy photoshoot to celebrate the big day. [metro-tag-post-strip] Posting a snap of herself in a pink feather boa and cowboy hat alongside some ’21’ balloons, the YouTube star wrote: ‘And the countdown to 21 begins. i’ll be sharing the last photoshoot i did at 20 with you all week. LET’S GO 🤠💗.’ Since, she’s showed off a string of snaps of herself in a black bodysuit, featuring a cake reading: ‘I’m legal bitches’. It’s all incredibly extra, but we’re kind of here for it.

SPEAKING from experience here, putting together the perfect outfit for a wedding is an absolute fashion minefield. Along with avoiding the colour white at all costs, guests also need to be wary of upstaging the bride (i.e. NOT wearing anything bodycon or remotely exposed). The three grandmas even matched on the navy footwear front But with all that said, you also have to bear in mind the possibility of rocking up to the wedding only to find another guest is wearing the exact same thing as you. Unbelievably, this exact fashion faux pas happened to not just two but THREE of the couple’s grandmothers at a wedding reception – and they even their navy shoes matched too. Bringing the sweet snap to the internet’s attention, Twitter user Alex Campisi revealed that all three guests had opted for the same elegant navy lace gown for the special occasion. In response to US talk show host Jimmy Fallon’s request for “wedding fails”, Alex wrote: “All three of the grandmothers unexpectedly showed up to the wedding in the exact same dress!” The Twitter user replied to Jimmy Fallon’s request for ‘wedding fails’ with a photo of all three grandmas wearing the same dress And considering how sophisticated the style is (and how lovely it looked on all three women), we can totally understand why. Luckily, the three grannies found it a totally hilarious coincidence and were all too happy to pose for the camera. Racking up over 4,000 “likes” on Twitter, other users were quick to argue that this wasn’t a “wedding fail” at all. pic.twitter.com/ieYHM5quLc — Alex Campisi (@aacampisi) June 19, 2019 One replied: “This is NOT a fail, how adorable!” Another joked: “In fact, I’d call this a win-win!” Meanwhile, a third added: “All three of those grandmothers have excellent taste.” But while we can’t get enough of this adorable story, Jimmy Fallon’s quest for wedding fails also resulted in this horrified bride revealing that her “frugal” mother-in-law had turned up to her wedding in a bridal gown because “it was a good bargain”. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FABULOUS” posts_category=”1″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] For more wedding horror stories, this bride has been mocked for “hideous” home adjustments she made to a $1 wedding dress from a jumble sale.

Hello Monday, Hello SUMMER! Now that it is officially Summer, let’s talk about this season’s most classic trend –  Gingham. I love gingham because it’s trendy but also timeless. It has been a staple since the 50s and 60s, and now there are so many modern options too. This chic pattern adds so much dimension and interest to any look, so it’s great to add to your closet. The best part about the gingham trend is that it works at all price points and in all different colors. You can wear it as an accent in a handbag or shoe, or go for a full on gingham look with a dress or statement pant like mine (sold out but similar here). Now let’s discuss all the ways you can wear the gingham trend this Summer! [show_shopthepost_widget id=”3622417″]
