  1. Jake, you love to quote a slave owning President from two centuries ago. I don't think it's a coincidence that any poster who constantly posts about white grievances also continues to chastise the "corruption" of large cities, where large populations of African Americans cast a vote.
  2. A tribute to everyone's favourite scene in KISS ME DEADLY "Oh, yowweeeEEEEE! That hurts! That REALLY hurts! That hurts so much I can feel it right down to my toes! The pain! THE PAIN!!! I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!!!" "Hey, Mike, do it again, will ya?"
  3. So then why is Trump losing all but two of his 30 court cases and, to say the judges involved were Democrat, is, at the least, inaccurate, at the most, dishonest. Any of a number of the judges have been conservative Republicans. For example . . . ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Federal judge dismisses Trump campaign Pennsylvania lawsuit "It is not in the power of this Court to violate the Constitution," Judge Matthew Brann of the US District Court in the Middle District
  4. Please provide link for your information. Or did you get it from the same source where Rudy Giuliani gets his?
  5. History is watching you, too, you pathetic graceless bag of corruption! If you only cared about your nation half as much as you care about yourself.
  6. Bend of the River (1952) James Stewart plays a border raider with a past leading a wagon train of settlers along the Oregon Trail. He's a man trying to flee his past in this Technicolor western, the second of five that he made with director Anthony Mann and one of the big box office hits of its year. As with his other Mann westerns, though possibly to a less developed degree here, Stewart's generally amiable demeanour covers some dark secrets, the actor's lanky frame convincing in the saddle, though there remains an interesting vulnerability about him. Arthur Kennedy scores well, bri
  7. Please, you idolize Trump like you have a schoolboy crush on him, a man accused of rape, among other sexual assaults, and you have the nerve to talk about someone else's hypocrisy.
  8. You know, MM, your obsession with all things Obama is almost as great as Trump's. In Trump's case a lot of it has to do, I suspect, with his feelings of inadequacy compared to the poise, cultured refinement, lithe athleticism, powers of articulation and ability to inspire others that Obama possesses. On top of that he is now making a fortune as a best selling author. Does that just about sum up your feelings of inadequacy compared to him, too, MM?
  9. Has anyone seen The Highwaymen, with Kevin Costner as Frank Hamer, the Texas Ranger who finally tracked down Bonnie and Clyde? A good film, with the two gangsters only appearing fleetingly in it. The drama has Hamer as its central character. I don't know how historically accurate it is compared to either The Bonnie Parker Story (which is largely fictional) or Bonnie and Clyde but it has the feel and atmosphere of its mid west Depression era setting (unlike the Dorothy Provine film). All three films end with the ambush in the car. Hamer was controversial as a man not leery of using deadly force
  10. I admired the film but couldn't quite understand the title. I wonder if you have to read the Faulkner novel to find out what it means. Thanks for looking into it, sewhite.
  11. Actually, I think the tommy gun might have done a pretty good job at slaying you, too, Tiki Soo.
  12. Could someone please tell me the meaning of the title Intruder in the Dust?
  13. And just who is it that will be facing a charge of rape when he gets out of office? E. Jean Carroll says she has still has the dress with Trump's DNA on it from the day she says he attacked her.
  14. I suspect Cooper would have disagreed with you, at least regarding Colman. The English actor with the mellifluous voice was Coop's favourite actor.
  15. 1958 also saw the deaths of Robert Donat and Ronald Colman,
  16. But in, "thinning the herd" those morons not wearing masks may also possibly pass on the virus to others and they may be the ones that die rather than the one without a mask. Everybody is in this together, whether we like it or not.
  17. The Bonnie Parker Story (1958) One of a number of late '50s productions about '30s gangsters, the exploitational aspects of this "B" are firmly established in the film's opening titles when the audience gets a peak-a-boo look through the window of a seedy room as the title character slowly removes her clothes. While there is a no name supporting cast, Dorothy Provine is sensationally sexy as the hard bitten cigar chomping tommy gun blasting title character. The film bares little resemblance to history (no surprise). Historians debate as to whether the real Bonnie Parker ever ki
  18. Perhaps not legally but morally Trump's politicization of mask wearing and missing in action abstaining from fighting covid 19 makes him responsible for the unnecessary deaths of thousands of Americans. Trump, a classic narcissistic sociopath, doesn't care about the deaths but history will be severe in its assessment of his leadership even as his sycophantic cult worshipping supporters try to excuse his behaviour.
  19. Not nearly as many as the numbers of brain dead who continue to believe the election fraud conspiracy even after Trump's court challenges to the election have been dismissed. The legal challenges, so far, have been lost by Trump and time is running out for him. He and his sycophants (including dye dripping Rudy Giuliani) are now indulging in political propaganda by way of smears and confusion to try to undermine the legitimacy of the election of a new President. Polls show that Republicans are buying it despite the lack of evidence. This is the new birtherism.
  20. I'll tell you a film made long before Star Wars whose special effects hold up well today: the earthquake sequence in SAN FRANCISCO (1936), probably the first Gable film I ever recall seeing on TV when I was a kid. It remains one of my favourite films of the "King."
  21. That's okay, Jake. Linus would understand the need you have for posting election fraud conspiracies. He had something to comfort him, too. It's just that his blanket wasn't fake.
