    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Nor did the Kurds help in Viet Nam. But, come to think of it. Donald 'Bonsepurs' Trump didn't either.

    You are so forgiving. Just wait until the berserkers start showing up at your doorstep.
  4. Blessed Are Those Who Thirst (I997) Carl Jorgen Kionig, Norway Scandinavian crime drama that resembles a TV MOW with jumpy pacing, terrible character development and awful music. It won the Norwegian Best Picture Award. It wasn’t terrible. I’m just being a little critical.
  5. Friday, October 11 Just when you thought it was safe to go out in the streets of Tokyo … 8 p.m. Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964). … kicks off another Godzilla fest.

    Yes, that was the joke and what leaps out.

    Democrats Begin Impeachment of Trump

    I don't doubt you but how in the hell did John Mitchell end up in prison the he was Nixon's AG and controlled the DOJ just like Bill does today? There must be some mechanism that people are not discussing.

    But we should take some comfort in the fact that we have an experienced beauty pageant operator at the helm of this middle east crisis.

    Democrats Begin Impeachment of Trump

    How did all those Nixon people end up in prison? Including the Attorney General? How was it possible then and not now? Does enforcement of the law come down to politics as well. A sincere query.

    There's no firm evidence that he actually ever said it, but President George W. Bush's reputed utterance to British Prime Minister Tony Blair that "the trouble with the French is that they don’t have a word for entrepreneur" probably echoed a widely held notion that France wasn't a country one immediately associated with entrepreneurs.
  16. 1996 2. Deep Crimson (1996) Arturo Ripstein, Mexico This is an adaptation of Lonely Hearts Killers which was made earlier as The Honeymoon Killers. I saw them back-to-back and enjoyed both. The Ripstein film takes place in Mexico’s badlands and the Martha Beck character played wonderfully by Regina Orozco is much more pathetic than was Shirley Stoler’s interpretation. And because she is pathetic Deep Crimson has more of a black comedy feel to it.
  17. Thursday, October 10 4:45 p.m. The Viking Queen (1967). Sounds cheesy enough.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    How did all those Nixon henchmen including the Attorney General end up in prison? In today's world I have no idea how this would happen. Nixon's AG ended up in prison for obstruction of justice, didn't he?

    a democrat impeachment machine gone nuts

    I guess that explains why I like John Wayne. Boy, everything has to be either black or white in your world. Liberals are your moustache twirling pantomime villains. Though I suspect trolling liberals is at the heart of almost all of your posts.

    I don't think they think that at all. But the WH keeps obstructing the investigation so that is just being added to the pile of criminal activity.
  21. Lots of the ex-cabinet members who appear on television characterize Trump's actions as "breaking the law."

    Malcolm Arnold & Kwai

    I watched a documentary program on the BBC about Malcolm Arnold's Bridge on the River Kwai score for which he won an Oscar. He wrote it in 10 days and it was also performed as a symphony. It was a really good show and delved into the layers of the composition and was reperformed by the BBC orchestra. But one bit lead me to post this topic and that was how difficult Colonel Bogie's march proved to be. You may recall that this occurs when the soldiers first march into the camp. When it was shot it was done to playback of a different march with no whistling. They discovered in editing that the soldiers were marching at a different speed in every shot which is then difficult for any composer. Arnold hired 19 whistlers to perform the famous Colonel Bogie's march and also had a piccolo in the background to keep everyone in tune. Apparently if you listen hard you can hear that piccolo. But then what is so amazing is that Arnold added Colonel Nicholson's, or the Kwai march right on top with full orchestra. So what you have is two completely different marches being performed at the same time. You might wish to keep this in mind the next time you see the film.
  23. Apparently Trump got a stay. He sure is putting a lot of effort into hiding his tax returns.
  24. So, who is in this MOW about Donald Trump's move for the White House and thereafter? You can pick anyone from history. I'l start with Arnold Stang as Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
