    My bad, apparently TCM wasn’t seeking to attract but rather chase viewers with the Querelle/Maitresse airings…😮

    Absolute trash. Meaningless self indulgent shlock. A travesty this was on TCM. I am angry they showed This garbage where they show a live Horse being slaughtered. Utterly disgusting and they should be ashamed. I wont be watching TCM anytime in the future. All the people associated with this "film" I hope burn in eternal hell for this.”

     

    You know that saying about bad movies being train wrecks? Well, this isn't just a train wreck...this is the Godzilla sequel to the mother of all train wrecks.
    Ohhhhhh, this film plays like an improv sketch of an art-house film written by lobotomised baboons. Or an unfunny gay-porn version of Barbarella written by homophobes.
    Unwatchable. Really. And orange. With half-naked oiled-up sailors and enormous phallic mooring posts.
    What on earth Franco Nero and Jeanne Moreau thought they were doing agreeing to take part in this septic tank of a film is quite beyond me.
    Truly, the worst movie I have ever tried to watch. I suspect I won't try the book either!”

     

     

     

    …reference IMDb.💋

     

    Somehow I think TCM will survive two harsh reviews from IMDB.

    The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty.

     

    That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.

    She knows that's not going to happen. The GOP are not going to agree to that.

    Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment.

    I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted.

    We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal.

    But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep.

     

    While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations,

    upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction

    I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate.

     

    Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President.

    It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.

     

    As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution.

    If she knows it's not going to happen then it's irrelevant whether she believes it's her "responsibility" or not.

    Trump Said ‘I’m ****’ After Special Counsel’s Appointment: Mueller Report

    President Trump has long claimed that he had nothing to fear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation—but according to an anecdote in the report, he was terrified when he found out Mueller was appointed. When former Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Trump that Mueller had been appointed on May 17, 2017, Trump reportedly responded, “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m ****,” before ripping into Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation. Sessions allegedly recalled that Trump said something in the vein of “you were supposed to protect me,” before adding that “Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

    I don't like to see anybody bulled over their enthusiasm for something, but what Disney has been churning out for the last few years is NOT Star Wars.  Star Wars actually WAS  the three prequels that Lucas put out at the turn of the century. Granted, it was bad to mediocre Star Wars, but it was connected to the original three from 1977-1983 by characters and philosophy. Disneyfied Star Wars includes some rando female character - Rhea - who just picks up a light sabre and suddenly knows to use it like a black belt when we spent the better part of six years watching Luke Skywalker struggle and fail with both the physical and mental characteristics needed to be a Jedi, the killing off of the original three characters like Star Wars is "The Black Adder", and ,oh, "The Force is Feminine"? Who wrote this stuff anyways? Kirsten "The Future Is Female" Gillibrand? I wouldn't want to see someone bullied for being enthusiastic over artichokes, but that doesn't mean I want to eat one.

    Oh, and Lorna, I'd pay eighty bucks to watch the supposedly lost "Convention City".

    Yeah, this guy's reaction was a bit over the top and I don't care that much about seeing this film but I don't think he deserves so much hate.

    Yet, somehow I can't see you doing a video and posting it on social media telling everyone how much you are sweating and crying over LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT.  Just sayin . . . 

    I could understand London After Mindnight because it's a famous lost film but the oddest part of his reaction is that these Star Wars movies have been churning out every year for the past five years. Though to each their own, I suppose. There's nothing wrong with being happy. I can't recall the last time I got that excited over anything.

  8. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-trailer-trolls-attack-eric-butts-191952340.html

    On Friday, the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuted to 70,000 enthusiastic fans at Star Wars Celebration and millions more online. One of those fans was Eric Butts, a Kentucky-based vlogger and filmmaker who taped his emotional reaction to the trailer in real time, only to have the video be distributed and mocked by trolls. But the fan community had his back — and the reaction video that received thousands of hate views has now received countless love notes and retweets from Star Wars enthusiasts, including Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.
