    Painfully inappropriate casting.

    For me, it's whenever famous, attractive personas play shy, loner characters. WAY too many films come to mind. Marcello Mastroianni as the shy, celibate priest in The Priest's Wife. (because of course Mastroianni is the first to come to mind when you think "celibate" ) Cary Grant in Bringing Up Baby. I know this one is a classic but I feel his role would have been much better given to Harold Lloyd or someone like that instead.

    NZ mosque attack....

    The most truly bizarre thing about all this is the gunman mentioned the YouTuber/ internet comedian "Pewdiepie" right before coming his attack. https://www.forbes.com/sites/mattperez/2019/03/15/pewdiepie-sickened-by-reference-from-suspected-christchurch-gunman/#595ba88a6f66

    I think he's saying you have to be politically correct nowadays so you can't use the word "foreign."

    I Just Watched...

    I saw a bit of that one yesterday. The sound was so terrible. The police commissioner speaks over the radio and it sounds like it was recorded through a can. I prefer the Zodiac Killer for the nonsensical, outrageous performance of the lead (hopping up and down on the top of one of his victim's cars ).

    Could Lincoln Be Elected In America Today?

    That's just conjecture from decades after he died (of course this whole thread is conjecture anyways). There is absolutely zero conclusive evidence Lincoln was gay or bi. It's even more likely he was an Asexual if anything considering he seemed depressed and disinterested in everything. Seeing how he would react to world history of the 20th century is interesting but the actual ideas he supported at the time would absolutely not garner support today. His opinions on race, theology/ religion, tariffs, economy and segregation would pretty much doom him in the eyes of the entire public today.

    Could Lincoln Be Elected In America Today?

    As Ham noted, he didn't believe in racial equality so today he would probably be seen as far, far right. He would certainly hate most of the 20th and 21st century presidents for their foreign policies of interventionism. I think he would support religion from an empiricist perspective but remain skeptical on the inside (similar to Cultural Christians/ Christian Atheists) at least and so be regarded as right wing in that regard. How he would adapt his ideas to the present is really something to ponder but going from his actual policies of the time it seems like most would not even seriously consider him for president.

    Very saddening. There is so much violence in the world today.

    More SJW nonsense

    Just look at this. https://bigthink.com/culture-religion/why-sexist-and-racist-philosophers-might-still-be-admirable-2630108741 "If this person was alive today, they would arbitrarily agree with me." If you disagree with something they said, that is one thing but to say "____ would have actually said something else" is just nonsense.

    Bad movies redeemed by their ending.

    I take it maybe they were all gazing down at their phones.
