Unless I misunderstood the article, the film doesn’t mention her name and the filmmakers just said the story is directly inspired by Amanda Knox. There’s nothing illegal about that, or uncommon. I mean, Law and Order built a franchise on it. It would be different if they had made a movie that was about Amanda Knox,… Read more
I’m sorry but anyone can tell a story that’s inspired by a true story. No one owns it. She doesn’t have to like it but the filmmakers didn’t have to consult with her either. Plus, she already wrote her book and made her money so anyone who wants to know what the real Amanda thinks, can just buy her book.
I re-watched The Princess Bride recently and I can say that after 34 years, it totally holds up and the jokes still land.
Imagine being a 53-year old multi-millionaire crying this much about the culture. Imagine moving through the world and being so very hurt by this stuff. Walking around your giant compound, chartering a private jet, all the staff buzzing around you as they clean your toilet and maintain your pool. Jesus what a fucking… Read more
JFC there's a reason no one laughs at Al Jolson anymore. If you can't get with the times, maybe you're bad at your job.
“Can you make a good comedy movie any more, or have they made it so dangerous in terms of being cancelled, that comedy movies are no longer something you can do?”
It’s almost as if comedy is a highly contextual medium, Joe. As the cultural shifts the comedy has to shift with it. If you don’t like it, make better comedy… Read more
Performance. Another bullshit GOP law that they know will be overturned by the courts.
Not all Christian denominations are the same, not all churches are the same, yes. But 80% of self-identified white evangelical Christians voted Trump and continue to support those same racist, misogynistic ideals. There’s a rot in modern Christianity that goes deep and much like folks who support defunding the police… Read more
It’s fucking sick and twisted how millions of depraved motherfuckers are rallying behind his little lawless Nazi piece of shit. He obtained two guns, lawlessly: It is illegal for persons under the age of 18 to possess a handgun in his home state of Illinois (which he also had in addition to his “AR-like” long gun) and… Read more
This asshole illegally acquired a gun and crossed state lines with the intention of shooting people and has the gall to claim he committed multiple murders in self-defense. The only sad part is that he didn’t have the common sense God gave the average cockroach to stay home instead.
America is very much not OK.
I don’t believe the “Uncle Billy” one, sorry. It sounds like every stereotype about traumatized, mentally-ill soldiers crammed into one story. Like you really think the guy is responsible for gutting a “murder victim” and you don’t call the police? You change your name, but somehow a guy who can’t even connect to… Read more
Forget impeachment. Raise your hand if you agree everyone in this administration should be on trial at The Hague.
Gosh, I hope that paint job doesn’t start to peel...
