  1. I could glance at the ‘old’ schedule and quickly see my favourite genres by colour code and one word describing such as ‘Drama’, ‘Musical’, etc., and then I could easily plan my viewing of TCM for the day, week and month. They removed a real simple format and replaced it with this...? I am all for improvements but this just stinks!
  2. Amazing how TomFH just creates threads with the straightest of intentions... Oh Please...Mr. Drama Teacher (You, not your Hero JT)...passive-aggressive actions and ad hominem approaches are so tiresome....I own my position straight up with and about you! Am I speaking with Gerald Butts?
  3. I have been waiting a long time to see The Servant! In keeping with dastardly and vile: Cockney villain Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast (2000).
  4. I agree with you Larry, further to your two choices, I will add Ethel Barrymore and Marie Dressler. All of these actresses are diverse and leave a lasting impression for me.
  5. Post apocalyptic butcher serving up gourmet meals...not quite Cafe Anglais from Babette’s Feast...
  6. Babette’s Feast Incidentally: Stéphane Audran, died 27 March 2018, she played Babette, the Parisian refugee and ‘cook’ to the Sisters. Such a glorious and memorable feast on film!
  7. You are absolutely out of line slaytonf. The importance that I place on a topic is factual and accurate information. It is beyond me how you arrive at your conclusion that posters are defending “a child r-apist”, other than to conclude that you do not like an adversarial position, particularly when you are wrong. I do find your statement somewhat ironic in that I worked in Law before retirement but not once in the defence of paedophile.
  8. The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Polanski: ”Most of the facts of the case are undisputed. On March 11, 1977, Polanski, at the time the toast of Hollywood as the director of Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown, was arrested and charged with drugging and **** then-13-year-old Samantha Gailey (now Samantha Geimer). As part of a plea bargain, Polanski pled guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, underwent psychiatric evaluation and spent 42 days in jail. But in 1978, when he heard that a judge was going to disregard the plea bargain and make an example of him, reportedly b
  9. * “MEET RETIRED U.S. ARMY SERGEANT ERIC HUNTER, WHO SERVED AND SACRIFICED IN BOTH IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. MR. HUNTER SELECTED: THE GREEN BERETS ('68)” Mr. Hunter was severely injured in combat and his dream of becoming a Green Beret was taken away from him. I had no problem watching The Green Berets with John Wayne.
  10. DB, most definitely like the American Conservatives. Calgary PD are ridiculous. Conservative Albertans think that Any music beyond Garth Brooks or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is considered the work of the devil.
  11. http://vancouversun.com/entertainment/celebrity/johnny-depp-plays-dress-up-in-visit-to-b-c-childrens-hospital Johnny Depp recently visited the BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver, Canada and put smiles on many children, staff, parents and me! Any Star that takes time to make the day of Sick Children is A good guy in my book.
  12. I am really irritated by that Ben, Get a free T-Shirt pop-up! The pop up is relentless on my IPad.
  13. It is obvious that you and DB have an ongoing grudge. Don't assume that people 'side' with anybody on these boards, just because that appears to be your constitution, it is not mine. I am quite certain that if we were discussing topics face-to-face, there would not be the vitriolic behaviour and childishness that goes on here when discussions are adverse in nature. I am retired now but worked in one of the most highly charged and adverse areas that I can think of, that being Law. We had a lot of diverse opinions and had to conduct ourselves with a very regimented code of conduct 'My Fri
  14. I'd like to know too, so I can block the Cry baby! Just let the moderators do their jobs in applying the terms and conditions of the policy/code of conduct without somebody fettering their discretionary authority.
  15. “Islamophobia” is not a constructive term—and words do matter. My intention is not to offend or inspire hatred in any form, but to promote honest conversation. In that spirit, I will outline the two major reasons that we should stop saying “Islamophobia.” For starters, this idea silences honest criticism of Islam, which is something both necessary and warranted. Let me be clear on this point: We should be criticizing the religion of Islam and its doctrines. We should absolutely not be criticizing all Muslim people. There is a massive difference and I am arguing in favor of the former a
  16. ISLAMOPHOBIA A phobia is an irrational fear. Rationally speaking out against a principle or idea one is opposed to is not a phobia. - One may support democracy therefore oppose the theocratic rule which Sharia demands and Muslim countries end up with. - One may believe women are equal to men and therefore oppose the idea that women are second class citizens which is at the core of Islam. - One may believe in freedom of and from religion, and therefore oppose any system where apostasy earns a death sentence. Thus one may oppose Islamist ideology, logically and without any 'p
  17. The look of relief on her face and outright joy of not being called on her bullsh** was almost tangible. James, you are quite right about your observations.
  18. Okay, why the f*** would you ask a feminist who clearly hates the Men's Rights movement to explain what it is? It's like you're not even attempting to hide your biases. CBC may as well get Alex Jones on their broadcast to explain how government works, or what happened on 9/11, or how about get the Ku Klux Klan to explain Martin Luther King Jr.'s. Doctrines. Rebecca Sullivan and CBC are pure and unadulterated farces. CBC has just got to go....no more tax payers bucks to continually peddle the likes of this garbage.
  19. I enjoyed Humberto's discussion with Ben, particularly your experience with film and presenting pictures. Further, your choices were excellent, I love Kim Novak and it was nice to see her in the first two choices tonight.
  20. Lonesome Polecat, I PM'ed you with my vote, could you please confirm that you received my choice? Thank you.
  21. For a change, try roasting your brussel sprouts in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes. I cut the brussel sprout in half to maximize the surface area which will get a nice caramelization and that is the purpose of roasting at a higher temp! Before roasting, coat the sprouts in olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh garlic is also nice tossed in, then after they are done, use a bit of balsamic to finish them off. Cauliflower is also really nice prepared the same way. I love the nutty flavour that is produced by using the roast method.
  22. I would really like to try this pie, never had a sweet potato pie. Sugar pie and Tortiere are in abundance up here and delicious (when guzzled down with a Pepsi;).
  23. SansFin, I hope the information that I present here will help in countering your conjecture, "that it is racist assumes facts not in evidence". A couple of examples where the term "monkey" used in reference to African-Americans was not okay: A few years back, American Justice Kimball wrote that the conduct of employee's at a construction company who used the word monkey and several other despicable phrases to describe African-American co-workers was, "Constitutionally offensive in any setting". Judge Kimball further remarked, "No reasonable jury could find that a reasonable African
