Re: Everything Is Great Again

When I said I FUCKING HOPE THAT RACIST, SEXIST ASSHOLE IS GONE BEFORE SUMMER...I meant Donald Trump, but this is cool too.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

It means he can get on the airwaves and continue to normalize his presidency. And every day we get more and more used to this guy, the harder it's going to be to get him out of office. I don't care how long Watergate took. I am done overestimating the attention span of the American people.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Because that's the one our President tweeted so it's all across the internet.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

The latest Rassmussen poll has Trump at 50% approval. Rassmussen's polling tactics are outdated and their 2016 predictions were Clinton 322, Trump 216; 50-50 Senate; GOP holds House, so I don't know why they fucking matter anymore, but we are a gross country that likes entertainment and Trump stayed...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Sonic Youth wrote I suspect this question would be just as hypothetical if she were president as it is now. She wouldn't do this. There's no way. The right would vilify her as using evasion tactics from whatever pointless investigation they were launching on her. They'd question her sanity. And the...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

It's moments like these that I recognized how incredibly party-affiliated I am. When I read the reports yesterday, I just felt sick and horrible about the implications of what is to come. But then I ask myself, would I feel the same way if Hillary Clinton were the President? Or if they had happened ...

I never thought I'd say this but I really wish he'd get back to fixing health care.

Re: Psychic Oscar Predictions Contest!

With Payne's track record, I think we can assume otherwise. If it works, it could be lauded as a big budget risk on his part, and (because he deals in social critique) maybe the second coming of Birdman.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Mister Tee wrote 2) Midterms were terrible for Dems during Obama's term, but I disagree (per Sabin) that was because the party itself was unpopular. They lost in 2010 because unemployment was over 10%, something that historically has meant midterm disaster for any White House party, and then the ge...

Re: Psychic Oscar Predictions Contest!

Why is that? It's entirely possible that the film will be a flop but while I'm not Alexander Payne's biggest champion, it looks like a fascinating undertaking, it has a high-profile Christmas date, it looks to fit the mood of the country perhaps, and every Academy voters love the guy.

Re: How Did Moonlight Win Best Picture?

Big Magilla wrote High Noon received its highest praise for editing, song and score and was justly awarded in those categories. It should have been nominated for cinematography and sound recording, but there was nothing special about its art direction and it didn't have a costume designer. It had c...

Re: How Did Moonlight Win Best Picture?

Big Magilla wrote I don't know about the Golden Globe. Maybe they were impressed by the film's box office - it was the highest grossing film of the year. The DGA wasn't an anti-High Noon thing. It was support for John Ford finally getting to realize his long held dream of making The Quiet Man on lo...

Re: How Did Moonlight Win Best Picture?

Big Magilla wrote Hedda Hopper's anti-Communist rantings torpedoed High Noon. I've heard, but High Noon lost the Golden Globe to The Greatest Show on Earth and the DGA to The Quiet Man. I know those awards carried a different weight, but are you saying that the collapse of High Noon began with thos...
