Re: “Dallas Buyers Club: The Power to Heal

I will see the film and decide for myself, but I have read reviews that state that the script is a bit flimsy, but the acting is awesome.

Re: “MSNBC Suspends Alec Baldwin's Show After Actor Apologizes for Slur

Much ado about nothing! His baby is not even 3 months old. He had a right to get upset. I'm sure they were just words with no homophobic intention. The photographer is lucky he didn't get punched out. If people don't understand that, it's their problem. I'm really disappointed MSNBC took that action. They only hurt themselves.

Re: “12 Years a Slave: Don't Look Away

I'd love to see this film. No theater in Boise or nearby has this film in its theaters. Why?

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

lOkay for those of who don't understand federalism and conservative limited government, here it is: the federal government should be limited so that each state can have its own laws and culture that are not imposed by a national hegemon. So I'm in California and here we have a culture of meth and porn (but each county has to choose just one). In Idaho apparently you still have some shreds of morality left that haven't been ripped off like bandaid on a hairy man's arm (yes I'm sexist--most women have smooth arms). But that's all it means. If you don't like the Idaho law, then you can petition our neighbors and legislatures to get rid of it. Or you can complain with six other people on this forum. But what federalist limited government conservatives want is that the federal government shouldn't be telling you to censor your movies.

That said, there is obviously virtually no demand for NC-17 movies in Boise. Otherwise, you would have a theater that doesn't sell alcohol and does show Blue Valentine. And I gotta break it to you, here in California, none of the artsy theaters serve alcohol. Maybe we have a similar law or maybe we like our child porn sober. I don't know. But them's the facts.

Re: “CableOne and Turner Kiss and Make-Up: CNN, TBS, TCM, Cartoons Back on the Air

I don't know anybody who left CableOne over this issue, Colby. I only watched one of those channels above, and that was for reruns of the Big Bang Theory, which I can watch on DVD anyway. So, I wasn't affected.

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

Hate to disillusion you It's about time, but Ted Turner has not owned Turner Broadcasting or the Braves for several years.

How many customers did they lose to Direct TV in the meantime?

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

Ted Turner is an egotistical maniac and apparently his style has been perpetuated throughout the evil Turner empire. By the way, isn't it a conflict of interest when TNN has (or had) the rights to broadcast MLB when Teddy is the owner of the Atlanta Braves?!?! I for one and glad that Cable One had the balls to tell Ted to F_ _k off. Ted is one of the biggest donors to the UN and is also a proponent of the IMF, CFR, and every other organization that wants to bring this country's constitution and our freedom to it's knees. He is a proponent of de-populating the world and is an arrogant prick that along with the other elitists that he hangs out with believe they have all of the answers for the world . . . because they are rich. What a bunch of arrogant assholes. Way to go Cable One, I'm with you.

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

This seems crazy to me! Like it or not some people will like or dislike certain films, the point should be that we have that choice to see it or not. Laws should be updated to match a progressive Nation, not be limited because we live in a red state!

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

What is happening here? Is there any new news on this? And why can't Cable-One put in networks in place of those from Turner? Such as RFDTV, RTV and FamilyNet? I'm not a big fan of CNN, or TBS, I only tune into TNT to watch the reruns of the Big Bang Theory, and used to be the mid season of NASCAR. Beyond that I see no big loss. In part I can see Cable One's point of view, why pay more for less? On that we are paying more to Cable-One,(at least here in Twin Falls) for less. Less channels, so where does it give? I have said for years, Idaho or at least our communities need to push Cable-One to sell out at least in this market to Comcast out of Utah. As part of Comcast there'd be the muscle to stop these network fights. Cable-One had a fight over AMC a few years back.

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

CNN? Seriously? You must have CNN? There is something seriously wrong in this world if there are still people getting there news from CNN. I think we should be thanking CableOne for doing us a favor and removing that garbage know as CNN from our TV sets. M even makes fun of it in the James Bond movie GoldenEye. With that having been said, I do believe that CableOne is being stingy and Turner is wrong for bundling the channels the way it does. If people don't want a channel, why should they have to pay for it?

Re: “Celebration of Altman's Short Cuts

Granted there are a lot of SoCal transplants around here, but I'd have to think there are far better places to ask about filming locations regarding a movie set in L.A. than on an Idaho forum. IMDB for starters.

Re: “Celebration of Altman's Short Cuts

I am trying to find the real locations of two sequences from the movie; Casey's accident and the scene in front of the photo buster, where the Lili Taylor and Buck Henry's characters accidentally get each other photos. Any ideas?

This is ridiculous. Get it figured out and give us a credit in the next few days or I'm gone. Must have my CNN news.

The Hallmark Channel and the Game Show Network should be used in prisons as punishment for misbehavior.
