Apr 23rd 2010 5:05AM My favorite moment is Freddy Vs. Jason-when you see the moonlight on the water it looks so peaceful & serene. Then they rise from it & the droplets of water just cascade like diamonds off their bodies into the water below-as they start their grotesque aerial ballet. Yet it's so graceful-and mesermisingly, beautiful with all the colours & reflections from the water. Framing, Lighting, Photography, Sound,Fx-Digital/Wirework/& Other, Acting-Just Freddy & Jason. It's Perfection, I'd show just THAT scene to any Film Buff because it's so perfect.
Apr 11th 2010 2:53PM 'Disrespected' keeps getting tossed around like a bucket of the crummy watered down sodas & flat beers you fans swill, and I say that with much love. I
Mar 18th 2010 4:16AM Why do people always have to go with a pseudo-domino theory? Meaning-if Pozeynot gets the Housing Association to change the Rules to allow her to hang her laundry out to dry they immediately jump to the conclusion that suddenly (cue the forboding dark thundering clouds, and Wagner-esque 'Kill Da Wabbit' Orchestra)
CHAOS WILL RIEGN, The Sky Will Fall, and just because someone G-d forbid see's Patty's bloomers flapping in the breeze it must surely be a sign of the coming Appocalypse?
Is it 'just' Me? Or does anyone see how ludicrious that sounds? And not just because 'I' was being a wisenhiemer. But because a clothes line-with wet clothing that will then be OH MY GOSH suddenly air dried.
Is the town getting a kick back from Whirlpool, GE or Maytag Dryers? Is that why they can't allow Clothes lines? Are they scared of a Grass Stain that might not come out in the wash completely? Or are they afraid that a child, or a man might see a woman's pair of underware?
I mean they're aware that we've got US Soldiers fighting in Iraq so Women don't have to wear Burka's right? It's not like she's hanging corsets, peniors, silk stockings & baby dolls out there, and nothing else.
That Community really NEEDS to get over it's self STAT! The windbags in the Housing Association sound like they could power up a few Windmills with their B.S. to run the entire community with an alternative sorce of energy at the rate they're going.
Mar 16th 2010 8:31PM Vickie you haven't been out too much lately then, there's lots of people all over the world who are naturally blond/e that aren't on the Swedish Curling Team.
One of the most famous ones is from South Africa. Charlize Theron, a famous Male is the Berber Soccer Star Zinedine Zidane.
I'll actually watch the Stephanie Plum Series if Kate Heigl's going to be Steph now, I think she's a great actress, she's got some chutzpah! I hope they get Betty White to play Grandma Plum too!
As for Kate going Brunette, even if it wasn't/isn't for a Role, I think she's gorgeous no matter what colour she goes. She's just a very beautiful woman in general. She could make a Rainbow Clown Wig look Amazing! I just wish they'd give her a better haircut now.
Mar 16th 2010 8:06PM @Gina & Swives, You said if you don't wash your hair every day it feels greasy & wieghted down & asked if you still condition every day?
I've got naturally thick, long (to the middle of my back) naturally black silky black hair (that I have on & off chemically treated, I used to add temporary highlights, I was a rebellious teen & would add outrageous hues, yet it never turned to straw, no matter how blonde I tried to lift it. It also didn't break because I NEVER tried to go platinum-I knew better!)
Anyway-it's all back to my natural blue/black. EVERY Salon Stylist has asked me what the secret to my routine is. As if it's some Ancient secret.
And no it's not. Unless I've Gardened or done something that's heavily Manually Labor intensive. I intentionally choose to wash my hair once a week. My routine is to use Head & Shoulders ONLY on my scalp. Then I rinse it out & I use something like Pantene on my 'hair'-not my Scalp.
I proceed to use a Conditioner on my Hair (again NOT my Scalp).
Then I usually use a flat iron (that I can use on wet hair-the steam helps dry it. If I had short hair, I'd just let it air dry. Or I'd use an ionic blow dryer if I 'had' to.)
I don't use any styling products. I'm not big on hairspray, mousse or things like that. I'm allergic to so many things, so I stopped trying to use them when I was much younger. Not to mention the alcohol content in them usually dried my hair out.
Hope that helped someone. Like I said, I've always recieved compliments on my hair.
Mar 12th 2010 4:42PM Actor/ess(s) have never been paid for the sake of 'The Art'. If you actually knew your Movie History, those Golden Years in the Western Cinema that you're speaking of in 'The Art', the Higher you were on the Billing determined how well you got paid, it was usually a Flat Rate/Per Film.
Sometimes not even yearly. And if you weren't careful you didn't get back end deals where you the Actor/ess got back end deals-meaning you didn't get profits from the Theater Ticket Sales and continued distribution dividends if it was released in another places, domestically or overseas. Or even re-released-not to mention if they had any merchandising tied in with it. You didn't have to have any profits from that either.
If you didn't have a shrewd busisness manager, you lost out on MANY benefits, and you didn't even get any regular ones like health benefits that should have been obvious like maternity leave, or being able to stay on witht he company if you got injured on the job.
As for there supposedly being such 'Art' back in the day, there are more than a handful of silent films that are Tripe, but I won't bother mentioning them, or the numerous black and white films that are crap-tastic. So instead I'll just go to the last 50 yrs..and say phoey to your 'they used to have such 'Art Films back in the Day Theory' with 3 words.
Beach Blanket Bingo.
Mar 12th 2010 6:43AM This is going to sound abstract, but stick with me. Diane Keaton started a Style Trend in 'Annie Hall'-it was basically a man's pant suit. It was decidely boxy not very femine compared to Lauren Baccall's more feminine pant suits that had silken blouses and pallazo pants. No one complained. As a matter of fact, if you ask many Men they'll say they think it's sexy if their woman wears their shirts.
So the fact that she wanted to wear a Tuxedo instead of a Dress because she's Butch, she's just not a Lipstick Lesbian. It's not really that important in the long run. It's not hurting anyone. There are very attractive Feminine Pant Suits. She wasn't going to show up with a Gomez Adams-Hitler Moustache and a 5 o'clock Shadow.
Prom Tickets are for Seniors, her Gf is a Sophmore for starters. Secondly, financially makes more sense to buy a pair of tickets, they make you fill out who you're bringing.
I'm sure they weren't going to show up dressed in a Rainbow Flag, with Pink Triangle Earrings & an Aids Ribbon Cumberbund & bowtie.And spend the evening French Kissing and Pawing each other like freaks. If it's the Bible Belt then the Dance would have been Chaperoned.
ALL the other Students should be happy that they're at THEIR Prom and too wrapped up with their OWN dates to give a Toss about 2 girls, that everyone already knew was dating. Because I don't care what the 'School' was saying, it was 'THEM' that pitched a fit, the Students were already aware of the 2 girls seeing eachother. If the Student Body was opposed to it, they would have Trounced the living SNOT out of them already and scared them half to death so badly they would have been to scared to probably even have considered showing up in the same room together.
The School telling the Children to throw their own party is ridiculous, they know those 2 girls don't have the funds. And no, it's not a political statement, they're not condoning or condeming anything if they let it happen. School isn't supposed to pass moral judgements like that. They're not even allowed to give proper Sex Education Lessons or they'll lose School Funding. It also has nothing to do with Sodomy Laws like someone else said. Because last time I checked..if you dance with someone and you accidentally end up buggering them, then you'd better be wearing a condom AND you most assuredly MUST take Ballroom Dance Lessons because YOU do NOT know how to Dance!!!
Mar 9th 2010 2:00PM No wonder the Williams had to BOLT to the Stage to try to make his acceptance Speech, he knew Burkett was close on his heels poised to strike.
She got an undeserved Oscar. She may have initially been a collaborator on the project, as in come up with the idea. But the actual final outcome was NOT because of her hard work, editing, or all the hours she put into it. It was because of Williams Vision.
She said so herself-Her vision & Her Documentary would have been completely different. Therefore here's my suggestion Ms Burkett instead of being Millie Vanilli with your Fake Oscar that you don't deserve-return it. Use the footage that you've got to make your own Real Documentary and win your own Oscar.
Mar 8th 2010 9:59PM Pope John Paul, would never kept silent, he would have certainly let the Ugandan's know that the Homosexual Gestapo Tactics & Death Penatly Bill were wrong and he would have been opposed to them. He would have said that they neither promoted love or fellowship between the Ugandian People, not just 'Christians'. He saw the whole picture.
The current Pope dropped the Ball, he let our Ugandan Brothers & Sisters (and I mean that in a Spiritual and Global Communal Sense) down.
You don't have to condone a Homosexual Lifestyle. If you're ProLife-then you don't pick and choose. You don't get to say-A defenseless fetus deserves to live, but not a person because they love someone of the same sex, or a not convict-about to get a lethal injection on death row.
ProLIFE is just that. PRO LIFE. Put your Money Where your Mouth is.
We're NOT G-d. He gets to Choose who gets to live and when they get to die-until then, if you're a Pro-Life Christian then you need to do everything you can to make sure you do what you can to make sure you can stop injustices from happening.
Mar 6th 2010 5:21AM Hercules40-The Customer is NOT always right (Neither is the Company.) BUT you MUST put the Customer FIRST if you expect to GIVE any sort of good Customer Service. AND you MUST do your very best to rectify the what ever the Customer believes is wrong-or at least come to a VERY Reasonable Compromise in the as promptly as time will allow.
It's sad that the lady expected to get cash from the ATM at the theater & only found out it was broken when they got there, but didn't have any time-because maybe the bank was closed-or the movie was about to start. So they had to borrow money from thier friends. Of course Security came in to put them on the spot-because a little humilition goes a long way--aparently not long enough that the VP is beyond indulging in name calling himself for sport..
