seems like we haven't seen you forever!
"The Fountain" - Hugh Jackman & Rachel Weisz:
Pretty cool movie... full of symbolism that provoked thought about the archetypes western culture take lock-stock and barrel (myself included). The biggest problem with this movie was the "real time" scenes that were preposterous. Sort of a "2001: A Space Odyssey" meets the TV show, "House" kind of movie.

This movies is a hip primmer on Senate horse trading by big money lobbyist, But it's nice how Eddie Murphy pulls one out for the Girls Of Many Nations
The Distinguished Gentleman
available now on youtube for free. if you never seen this Eddie Murphey comedy, it is pretty good.
Favorite quote from the film -> "People ask me what prison was like. I tell them, 'you'll find out'."
Good to know you got shoes to wear when you find the floor.
I think you're missing something...
Jerry Springer the Opera is a SATIRE - a biting and brilliant one at that. Anyone who is repulsed by the Jerry Springer show would love this great piece of writing. He goes to hell!
Just so's you don't get carried away!
This movie defined the change of an era. I'm not sure exactly when it came out, some time in the early 90s, I believe.
The highly potent message of this movie was that heroin was in, coke was out, just as our favorite "Dark Star" was about to fade from the scene. As well, there were scenes of drug overdose and homosexual rape as well as a recurring theme badly twisted from the bible, righteous words for a black mobster to execute by.
Johm Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel lit up the big screen for this one. Excellent movie it was, we all could have done without it and the social circumstances it pointed out and/or promoted.

It is all true, Lilly.
JSTO was a big hit in London, was due to go to Broadway and then the religious zealots scared away the production money. The protesters didn't like the scene where Adam & Eve & Satan teamed up against God. Harvey Keitel played Satan in a one night production at Carnegie Hall.
Now, they will produce it in Bosotn and hope that many people protest for the publicity. Anything to sell tickets, I guess.
Yikes... the truth is stranger than fiction! All I did was open the Arts section of the Boston Globe.
I have NEVER seen a forum where it's members can not start their own threads. I hang my hat at all sorts of forums and have never seen anything like it.
Two Toms Thumbs Way Down !!!!
