Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

Also, are you suggesting I didn't "watch and evaluate"?

Posted by Damon Hunzeker on 12/29/2012 at 2:27 AM

Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

"After the fact"? It's still going on. I wrote about only the first two episodes. And it's definitely about Oliver Stone, by the way, but it's also fun to watch precisely because it's fucking ridiculous.

Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

I prefer to watch and evaluate. This series is obviously NOT about Oliver Stone in spite of the efforts of his critics to make it so after the fact.

Re: “Spike Lee: Django Unchained is Disrespectful

Spike Lee! Isn't he the one who tried to arrange a good old American LYNCHING of that guy who shot that kid? Why are we even paying attention to what that murdering racist has to say??

Re: “Spike Lee: Django Unchained is Disrespectful

There's a reason why SOME religions do not encourage watching movies. Distorted Perceptions.

Re: “Spike Lee: Django Unchained is Disrespectful

Ya know what, when Hollywood has to start worryin about every single circumstance in films that may offend someone, then maybe films should stop being made and all the high priced totally over paid actors can all get a job at Wal-mart or Burger king like the rest of us! Nuff said!

Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

Thanks, Joel. Well said and great use of the H.L. Mencken quote. If Stone ever does a Mencken movie, it will focus on his weird hair.

The Hobbit is far from a sure bet for Best Picture. Faaaarrrrrr....

Re: “Zero is a Hero but The Hobbit is Token Tolkien

Well over a year after Bin Laden’s death and over 10 years since 9/11, American citizens are still blindly allowing their civil liberties to be taken away one piece of legislation at a time in the naming of fighting terrorism. Even our own citizens can be detained and tortured without trial. What difference did it make killing Bin Laden and Hussein if nothing has changed? You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09…

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Thanks for the biological and biblical insight, Squatchy McGee. I will, per your suggestion, squatch on -- but I won't be calm about it.

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Who are we to say if the Bible does or does not contain references to Bigfoot? It has proven to be less than rigorous when dealing with biology. Let's keep the door open on this one.

Be Calm and Squatch On!

Re: “The Hobbit Criticized for Speedy Frames

Dear Mr Jackson and New Line Pictures,

I couldn't wait to see it in 48fps at the Cineplex Younge and Eglinton in Toronto in Dolby Atmos but had to leave after 10 minutes due to them showing it at probably 60fps! Bilbo walked too quickly and the whole opening was overlyfast in screen actions.
I'm a film and tv editor by trade and know when the action speed is too quick. I understand that 48fps doesn't make action faster.

I reported it and a lady on duty said she couldnt watch it either?
I think they really need a phone call or email Mr Jackson to put them right so another few thousand don't experience the same I have.

Yours Sincerley

Rob Chandler

sheesh...seems like someone is always going to complain about something and then someone is going to write about it on the interwebs

Well said, Meucup. Well said.

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

The BIBLE has been out in paperback since 1981! READ IT! It doesn't say anything about BIGFOOT! You have no idea what I'm talking about!

Posted by Meucup on 12/16/2012 at 10:19 AM

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Thanks for the recommendation. That's out in paperback now, right? Sorry for being so ignorant and disgraceful.

Re: “Oliver Stone's Gospel of America

Absolutely loved this review... Spot on, and I say that as a former classmate of Oliver's at NYU Film School and the producer of two documentaries on his life and work ("Oliver Stone Inside Out" for Showtime and "JFK: Backstory" for AMC.) Oliver skews his world view, bizarro fashion, to provoke the rubes into believing that he -- Oliver -- actually believes in what he's saying.

Oliver is his own best creation channeling as he does the spirit of P.T. Barnum and reflecting the truth of HL Mencken's dictum: "nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people"

Re: “Finding Bigfoot: The 'Squatchiest' Show on TV

Read John 3:16 in your Bible, and believe that Jesus is real. He is a King who came down off his throne in Heaven to save mankind and bring us to God, being God's only Son, whom was obedient to God; even to death by dying on the cross for us so that our sins can be forgiven forever and we can have eternal life through Him in His glorious Kingdom above. Please do not bring Bigfoot into religion like this, it is both ignorant and disgraceful to God our Father above. You have a right to your opinion on Big Foot, just as I have mine. But Please, don't bring religion into this. All I am saying. Bottom line.

Re: “Boise Classic Movies: The Sequel

We applaud the idea of classic movies- both recent and not so recent- being screened to big crowds in theatres. It confirms what we already know: The viewing public is not stupid and will reward quality when it's offered...Plus- great movies never grow old, and watching them in a big venue with lots of other people is like church- in other words, how they were meant to be seen...Still if you've got a great home entertainment system, that ain't half bad either! -- John Farr, BestMoviesByFarr.com

Re: “Moonshiners: Dukes of Hazzard Without All the Pesky Culture

Loved it that the kid was shown wearing an East Tennessee State University T shirt, finally my alma mater gets some recognition. Refreshing to see the real deal amidst all the "reality show" fakery.
