  1. I also think candidate was an issue. HRC and...

    I also think candidate was an issue. HRC and Obama generated more hype than Biden and Pandemic meant a front-porch campaign, so that meant it wasn't enough to cross over.

    I don't think Florida is...
  2. One of the issues that seems to fly under the...

    One of the issues that seems to fly under the radar is Florida's data scientist Rebekah Brooks who seems to be targeted by Florida Law Enforcement (under the purview of that gargoyle Ron DeSantis). ...

    There were several republics before USA in 1776. In the ancient world, you had the Republics of Rome and Carthage, you had the Democracies of Athens and Thebes. Gore Vidal wrote an awesome novel...
  4. This isn't about the better country or the better...

    This isn't about the better country or the better people. The thing is that just as it's unfair and ridiculous to demonize America and give China and Russia and others a pass, that doesn't mean you...

    Agreed but let's not respond in kind with hagiography.



    "Leading light of Democracy" is not true.

    When we think of the great innovations in democratic government, America has been a...

    That's really depressing. Leave it Trump to rain on our parade.

    Huh...Ford is a lifelong and vocal liberal democrat.

  8. Being conservative by itself isn't a dealbreaker....

    Being conservative by itself isn't a dealbreaker. Kurt Russell is also quite a wingnut but he keeps to himself, hangs back and is a professional who doesn't go out of his way to endorse lunatics.

    Eastwood was one of the few Republicans who vocally and publicly opposed the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And he's pro-LGBT. But he's Californian so per EC rules, his vote doesn't matter anyway. Not...

    Dude still insisted they fry after they were exonerated.

    If NYC boycotted and ran him out of town then, as opposed to over the last 4 years...
  11. He's going to leave an administration that's at...

    He's going to leave an administration that's at the threshold of all US casualties in World War 2, so what's 13 more bodies to add to the pile for a sociopath.

    The level of slaughter that this...

    This video is one of the oddest and creepiest yet.

    On one hand these Putschists are random and stupid and dopey (that hilarious bit where they struggle for some minutes to understand that Cruz's...

    So AXIOS is doing a series on Trump's long-gestating coup attempt.

    I am aware because I have read quite thoroughly J. W. Rinzler's account of the production of A NEW HOPE and Paul Hirsch's recent book on his career with a special focus on his work editing the final...
  15. But that's not even remotely comparable. Avi Arad...

    But that's not even remotely comparable. Avi Arad was one producer among many on the projects he worked on. He represented Marvel Studios and insisted on character consistency and presentation but...
  16. The flipside to that is that Lucas actually did...

    The flipside to that is that Lucas actually did work in the same way on the prequels as in the original. He prepared extensively on the OT and changed stuff on the spot when it wasn't working. He did...
  17. When did Avi Arad create characters and stories...

    When did Avi Arad create characters and stories and decide the aesthetic of an entire film, its look, its sounds, and its design?

    Avi Arad bought Marvel Studios, he didn't create the characters....
  18. Because what you describe isn't "internal story...

    Because what you describe isn't "internal story inconsistencies".



    No they aren't. It's basic film literacy. A movie is not a book, and it's understood that movies will only confirm essential...

    It's not lackluster or dull, it's showing Samuel Jackson can be a calm, methodical, rational presence. He cast Jackson against type to show off his range.

    Two things can be true at once.
    -- The Republicans were scumbags to turn what is an ethics issue into a case of impeachment all for the sake of partisan political gains and points scoring.

    Essence is stuff like plot, theme, character, and motivations...and everything in the prequels was established in the OT.

    Many people said that the Prequels made the Jedi come off as...

    When you come at the King...yada yada yada...

    A thread asked for "Why Lucas didn't direct more films" rather than explore they why of that, and the what of it, someone decided to do Prequel...

    As I said "everything in the PT is consistent to the essence of what was established in the OT"

    Stuff like this doesn't qualify as "essence".

    In the case of Leia remembering, what she clearly...
  24. Everythin in the PT is consistent to the essence...

    Everythin in the PT is consistent to the essence of what was established in the OT.

    I can go to the mat for that.

    A NEW HOPE was a crazy draining experience. And it definitely did a number on him. THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI which he merely produced also brought more involvement from him than...
