Re: Epstein Case

I'm sorry, Sabin, but NO. Young people didn't "look Clinton up" and you and I have both discussed the Bernie situation and his supporters' willful ignorance and parroting of Republican talking points. Most of the misinformation I saw was based on ineffectual and dishonest talking points re...

Re: Epstein Case

In reading this, I think he's not meaning that his friends believe the Clinton conspiracy theory about Epstein's death rather that they believe the Trump conspiracy theory. I could be wrong in my misunderstanding and that could be leading to a lot of the confusion here.

Re: Epstein Case

While confidentiality agreements might become null (if not written to persist after death), the criminal case would likely be closed and dropped, which means no discovery, no digging for answers, no actual dirt being found against those with whom he worked. I don't think necessarily that he had anyt...

Re: R.I.P. Hal Prince

Dan, I think the likes of Cameron Mackintosh might come close. He's close to legend now simply for his revival re-stagings.

I always was flummoxed by the hate for Merrily We Roll Along, it was a fascinating concept and I love the original cast album.

Re: Oscar Face Offs

The reason it dropped is because I stopped sharing it in a couple of other places.

Re: Oscar Face Offs

I fixed it. Unfortunately, there were no more Sound contests left to move it to another. There were a handful of incorrect typos that may end up getting a reprieve simply because of the errors. This coming Friday is the last one for Round Zero, though.

Re: New Rules for the 92nd Oscars

Hasn't the Academy in recent years relaxed some of those minutea rules you reference, regarding co-productions and languages (I'm positive they aren't as strict on the language of the country of origin as they used to be)? You might take a look over the rules entire and see if perhaps some of the pr...

Re: Best of the Decade Lists

12 Years a Slave was omitted as was If Beale Street Could Talk, both universally acclaimed films. I think the problem here is that you have some voters choosing idiosyncratic choices just to be cool and others clearly trying to thumb their nose at fans (your reference of Last Jedi for example).

Re: Cats Trailer

Part of my unease is that it looks unintentionally campy (I guarantee it will be a nominee at GALECA for Campy Film of the Year) and the effects are terrible. It looks like instead of doing makeup effects, they went with digital makeup and that digital makeup looks like shit. If it's real makeup the...

Re: 2019 Emmy Awards

Schitt's Creek is a great show and really comes into its own in seasons 3 and 4. If you stopped after 1, Sabin, then you owe it to yourself to continue. It's a groundbreaking show filled with wonderful talent and that proposal episode was swoon-worthy. Dan Levy should have been nominated, especially...

Re: Toy Story 2 (1999) casting couch 'blooper' deleted by Disney after #MeToo movement

This is the company that refuses to release Song of the South. Does this really seem that "mad?" And they are simply removing it from further productions. It's not like they are ordering a recall.

As someone pointed out, the Iowa Caucuses are just over 200 days away. That's not that long if you think about it.

Don't forget Giancarlo Giannini among the "really? not already?" batch.
