Wow, I’m particularly surprised at O’Reillys list of extremes. If those thoughts are actually running through his head, then some of the statments actually impress me. But I guess he knows enough about extremes - I watched his show once or twice, and that was about all I could take.
But the O’Reilly clothing line is absolutely fabulous! Now you too can look chic and live the “life O’Reilly.”
And, by the way, it’s God’s fault. If there’s anyone to blame, it’s Him/Her/It/They/Us.
I have seen: Mo’ Better Blues, Do the Right Thing, School Daze,Boys in the hood and Bamboozled
Most of the cast are African Americans but i was making a joke about him casting an african as a German General but its not too far off from reality from the examples of his casting in other movies.
Haven’t seen all those, but some of them were not good. It happens.
Fair enough on the joke, but it is not reality at all. He mainly does movies about the Bronx, in black neighborhoods. That is appropriate. Casting black men as German generals is just stupid (but yes, funny), and not something to do since he was so interested in showing contributions of blacks in WW2 - albeit from a book.
Oliver Stone only does movies where they ridicule conservatism viewpoints, so i expect to get that in all his movies.
Ok, maybe you do, but that’s Oliver Stone. But “only does movies” is completely wrong when you see: Natural Born Killers, Alexander, Any Given Sunday, etc., or look at most of the movies he wrote the screenplay for.
Well, I never claimed he had black nazis, but yes, I’ve seen some of his fiction. They’re okay entertainment value, but not something I enjoyed as a primary repository for my hard earned cash. I prefer Jerry Bruckheimer
I wasn’t attributing the black nazi to you. You don’t like him, ok, that’s fine. No need to pull something nonsensical or unrelated like Michael Moore (yes, I know you don’t like him either).
I just went to see my first movie in the Theater of the year: “An American Carol” it was hilarious!
I only went to the effort to see it in the theaters because Blockbuster is boycotting it (like they did with Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed until they lost the lawsuit.)
Good fiction huh?
Question: how can a movie rental company boycott something that just came out on screen?
I saw Miracle and as i suspected it was a typical spike lee movie. He extrapolates once again south central/bronx ghetto rough language of the 1990’s in every sentence, while the Germans look like mensa candidates. The Africans are portrayed as disgusting, corrupted and uneducated soldiers ( with some exceptions) ‘looking’ for opportunities. Its like he made it to appeal to the audience that watched his other movies by trying to turn WW2 france into “Gang Wars of the Hood” and frankly their was not any way it would have worked unless it was specifically about the “buffalo soldiers” and their bravery in fighting in spite of how they were treated at home. ON this level it had a chance and intimated that and similar points but it was very weak effort.
It should be a box office bust.
I saw stroke of genious and this was better but formalistic plot sequence.
Thanks for the assessment, I will reply once I’ve seen it. Not holding much for it with the reviews, but will save the opinion for myself.
When i was about 18 i went to Tahoe/Reno area and was thinking to myself “this road is rather narrow and winding and id hate to be caught in the rain out here…” About 30 seconds latter it started to rain. Then my next thought was “ah this road is going to be slippery not to mention its got lots of turns…” I then decided not to test fate further and slowed down to like 25 miles an hour and after about a minute of driving uber slow the car lost total control and rolled off a cliff that was about 20 feet down on a slow draping and soft slope. I could not believe my luck.
Of course i called a cop and when he should up 15 minutes latter all he did was give me a ticket ( for unsafe driving) and leave after i told him i was ok. my 84 Z-28 Camaro was wasted.
The thing was i really was thinking i had better drive safe and deliberately going at a snails space when the car lost it.
it was weird.
They don’t make donkey shows like they used to anymores in TJ. Thats why now I only go to Panda shows. Sometimes it gets difficult cause the Panda bear doesnt want to co-operate, but when it gets started……its hawt. 8-)
And another side note civilians lose wars not the American military.
Agreed, terrible policy has been the bane of the US fighting man for over half a century. (or longer even)
We give the people all the battle wins, and spineless leadership and ineptitude takes those victories and squanders them.
From one trooper to another “Brave Rifles!” and thank you for your service!
