This show is great! I watched the first season over three days. I just finished the second season in one day. By the way, two and a half men is a good show. "Careful man, there's a beverage here!" Stay Gold Edge This was not a good movie. Yes it was way heavy handed and clumsy. Now, I enjoy most of the films made by Mr. S. Lee. But, this was rubbish. The story was incredible based on some true events. But the film itself was amateurish and odd. Especially coming from a filmmaker who has made, "Mo Better Blues," "Clockers," "25th Hour" and others. For a while I thought he was doing some kind of homage to the Blaxploitation of the early 70's. But those films were more of a higher quality than "BlacKkKlansman." And, they were fun. This is a bad film with assimilates stretched to make some points about today's situations. A great film maker way off course. Da Mayor,"I wasn't trying to be a hero. I just seen what was happening and I reacted." Stay Gold Edge In terms of taste there is no real way to come to a consensus. Obviously on this issue, it seems a consensus is difficult. Some agree with me, like your spouse, and some, like you, do not. On other matters of taste i believe there is often a consensus. Though, it will never be one hundred percent. Sgt. Peppers is a great album. "Of All The Gin Joints In All The Towns In All The World, She Walks Into Mine." Stay Gold Edge From my prior post, "The soundtrack did not propel or enhance the overall story telling, in my opinion. To my taste, it was obtrusive." I get it, some story lines maybe uncomfortable and creepy. And as such, a soundtrack that is creepy would foreshadow and enhance those uncomfortable feelings. But, that might not be something one would listen to while having dinner. In the case of this film, the sound track was bad, obtrusive and not in the background of the story but in the foreground. And, it was too loud. [ I did wonder if that was a result of the venue rather than the film.] I found it a pity because everything else about the film was stellar! “Excuse me. I believe you have my stapler.” Stay Gold Edge So, you know other people that are in my 'camp.' There are probably more people in 'your camp.' The music from the Baroque period is fine. This soundtrack was too loud and obtrusive. Rather than enhance the story telling, it was distracting. But, that is why the ice cream stores have 25 flavors. You’ll shoot your eye out, kid. Stay Gold Edge "Then again, there’s no accounting for taste." Hmmm, there is accounting for taste. It is the critic's raison d'être. It is the reason this site exits. To afford people the ability to express their views and spark cordial and healthy debate. The soundtrack did not propel or enhance the overall story telling, in my opinion. To my taste, it was obtrusive. Of course we know about Clint Eastwood's famous/?infamous quote regarding opinions. "I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!" Stay Gold Edge She is pretty. But, more importantly. she is a great actor. She has been awarded two Oscars, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. And has been nominated for many other awards. She is nominated for "The Favorite." Also, actors play various roles that are different from their country of origin. Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln and Meryl Streep as Thachter. There are many other examples. So, with respect, I disagree. “I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.” Stay Gold Edge i just viewed this excellent film. Rami's performance was spot on and great. I then googled oscar odds and the word on the net came up with the likes of Bradley Cooper, Ethan Hawk and the like. Rami was put in the "Dark Horse" bin. Now, I have nothing against the other guys, but, Rami was "Raging Bull" good. “Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.” Stay Gold Edge Ya know, I did not think of that. But, she is about to drop a baby at any moment.She is about to explode a nuclear device in the middle east. She just executed a former confidant in the Oval Office, that no one knows about at the moment! There is a lot of threads to be finalized. "Chewie, we're home." Stay Gold Edge If, by your accounts, many, but not you, have enquired about a sequel, why do say it would be "Pointless?" Also, you note that Del Toro is up for it. If there is money to be made and a willing cast, then there will be a sequel. Do you think I am way too fond of the comma? "It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!" Stay Gold Edge View all replies >
