The immigration officials in London Kevin Costner as the President? Missing pieces The silence before the shots. Selina's overwhelming ambition How refreshing Segregation scene The Money Not really a horror movie Erica's callousness View all posts >


Open Range and Hidden Figures show that Costner has still got it. Maybe he needs a good western role. Agreed. He is also effective in the action blockbuster Olympus has fallen.Small role but he more than holds his own. There is a funny scene in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever when one of the characters is complaining about Italian-American women. He says that all they want are White Anglo Saxon P***ks! He lists men such as Harrison Ford, Robert Redford and William Hurt. In the early 90s, Hurt was still huge. I'm not sure about that, Friend. Having a child die because he got in the way, speaks volumes. She even allows her lover to hang in order to escape justice. At least he had pangs of guilt. Katherine displayed zero scruples. This being the 1800s, her word against a black farm hand is going to be taken as gospel. In her mind, the ends justified the means. Her survival was all that mattered to her. Agreed. Homelander is a sick man, underneath the celebrity/near God like status.The scene on the plane when he threatened to laser the panicked passengers revealed that this "superhero" is a total psychopath. Afterwards he even gives a George W Bush style " I hear you..."speech to the rescuer services near the site where the plane went down. I thought Maeve was going to throw up at the memorial. I must have missed that . I will watch it again as I am a big Redford fan. Thanks Of course, it's a movie. It's also based on real events. Thank you for the observation. Responding to your replies, he had tried to kill himself before. Maybe he was so emotionally damaged that retirement was not viable. You should definitely watch it! It was a huge hit here in the UK ratings wise AND it was major cultural talking point in the media. There were articles in the press about who the villains were and explanations about plots and characters. In the age of streaming and box sets it is very rare to capture the public with a political thriller /drama on terrestrial TV. The whole was based on lies and Johnson was not the only one. Kennedy denied that American troops were involved in the fighting when in fact they were. Robert McNamara lied repeatedly about the progress of the war. By way, the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, probably never actually happened. View all replies >
