"The Help." One of the best movies I have seen. It was a warm story of life in the 1960s in the deep South and the relationship between whites and their black domestic help.

Last movie I watched was Transformers "Dark of the Moon". I liked it. I'll give it about an 8 out of 10.

I will try again. Sorry I did not see this topic.

Saw Dolphin Tale - 3D. Excellent. Rate 9/10.

What a wonderful change of pace.

Re: Last movie you watched - 09/26/11 03:15 AM

I want to go see Dolphin Tale with my wife and daughter. I absolutely LOVE dolphins! However I think we will go to the 2D showing of it. I am not sure how much difference 3D would make and it can get aggravating after a while. Jackass 3D on the other hand...I HAD to see it in 3D! It was AWESOME!

Dolphin Tale with have to wait though. For my Birthday I got tickets to see the simulcast of the 25th Anniversary of the Phantom of the Opera Live in London 10/2/11 2 p.m. which is being fed to movie theaters here in the US. CAN'T WAIT!!! \:\) This will be my 4th time seeing the Phantom.... Toronto, Rochester, Syracuse, and now "London". I still would love to go to NYC for the weekend and see it there!

Saw Drive yesterday. Surprised that it was as much a love story as it was an action movie. Enjoyed it.

Re: Last movie you watched - 09/26/11 12:59 PM

Saw Phantom in Toronto and the movie version a few time. It was great.

Enjoy.

I had not seen a 3D in many years and thought I would try it. Enjoyed it, but may not always go the 3D way. I have a problem about the "recycling" of the glasses.

Fantastic show! At the end Andrew Lloyd Webber came out as well as the original London cast including Sara Brightman (original Christine) and Michael Crawford (original Phantom) Sara Brightman sang as well as 4 past phantoms! Well worth the $22!

They are having re-broadcasts on Oct. 5, 6 and 11. A must see if you can go.

The woman who played Christine in the current version Sierra Boggess was absolutely stunning!

Saw MoneyBalls. Good story,funny, well worth watching. Brad Pitt is a good actor.

Can anyone "imagine" a man giving up $12,500,000.00 to stay closer to home. Tho, am sure he was paid well as GM for the Athletics.

Rate - 8/10

I guess it depends on whether you like Sci Fi movies or not. I loved it, my wife slept through most of it. She does that at just about any movie though. We joke about her taking an $8.00 nap whenever we go to the movies.

It would help if you saw the first two Transformer movies. There was a lot of action, and really good special effects. I stand by my 8 rating. I plan on purchasing the DVD.

Seen The Conception just another day. Is older movie of months ago but I do like to see it later when you not have to payments. Is a movie that leave my jaw-struck and mind-flown. It flew my mind. It is about a dream in a dream. It made me think of a new item for Taco Bell called the Conception Taco which is a taco in a taco. That would taste good.

Yes... great movie. All about Sabermetrics and how Billie Bean used it to select talent to make his Athletics viable competitors. The same system that made my Red Sox champions twice in four years... which hadn't happened since 1918!

Yep, it is. I very rarely watch movies and paying to watch a newly released or pay-per-view movie is a real low priority. I can patiently wait until one of the cable channels offers it for free.

Since I have a DVR, I just zip right through the commercials. I also like my quiet, comfortable, personal space with my own yummy, buttery popcorn or treats with wonderful glass (or 2 or 3) of wine!

Ides of March - 8/10. Great acting by Ryan Gosling and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Tho George Clooney acted and directed this movie, he had more presence than great acting. Good job on both.

Good story line. Politics and its corruption, a very sad scandal, political business as usual. IMO, acted and presented well.

Worth seeing.

HUGO. Wonderful and very artistic movie with great effects. About a young boy, Hugo, (Asa Butterfield)soon to be orphaned, and his journey to find the meaning of his life and his losses. Also, Ben Kingsley and Jude Law. Directed by Martin Scorsese and one of the producers is Johnny Depp.

Rate it 9

If you can afford to do so, Oldgzr, go see it in the theater in 3-D. This is probably the best film I've seen this year (and I see a lot of movies), and 3-D just made the film that much more spectacular. I've seen several reviews that have stated that this film uses 3-D more effectively than any film made to date. I agree with ProAct... 9 out of 10 stars.

Here's Roger Ebert's review of the film.

That's a no-brainer, Ermey's Gunnery Sergeant Hartman' - hand down.

But on second thought, it's probably the performance by Sgt. Jerrod M. Glass, USMC that lights up Harley.

My favorite movie genre is Science Fiction. I watched Terminator "Salvation" again last night. I saw it at the movies when it was new and thought that it was the best of the Terminator series. One advantage of getting old is that you can watch a movie again a few years later and its all new again. \:D

So, I'm watching The Help. I'm speechless. I just cannot believe the ignorance of people. I was raised in a home where ALL people were considered equal. I was also raised 'ignorantly' in that I didn't even know such racism even existed until I was in high school. I KNOW this horrible racism is as real as real can be, but I truly can't fathom it. It just seems so foreign to me. I just don't understand it. I really don't.

I thought what a great movie for some of these young gang related groups to watch.

Why? The story has nothing to do with gang-type violence or turf wars. The participants in the Games are selected by lottery and are made to fight until the death as a punishment for a previous rebellion. How would gangs relate to this story?

"In a world where teenagers really do kill each other in cold blood, perhaps it’s good that YA literature move away from lipstick and boys. American teens today face more real-life horror than many of us remember, including gang violence and bullying. Outside the United States, Joseph Kony isn’t the only adult forcing children younger even than the tributes into armies. Child soldiers in Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Burma fight for causes they don’t understand but which can often be traced back to resources that fuel Western appetites."

From reading this, I'm not the only one that took this thought away from the movie theatre with me.

Re: Last movie you watched - 03/26/12 07:16 PM

On the particular day I saw Hunger Games, most of the movie goers were teens to 30's (I am in my seventies). Hope they saw it for the horror it was and not want to help to bring a society like that to be.

When I was young, my generation here in American were able to see the horrors of the Third Riech through the media. It left a lasting impression on me. I would not want to see that regime repeated in the world, though there are those that constantly try.

The Hunger Games. Read that, Catching Fire and the Mockingjay first. By comparison the movie sucked and I would give it a 5/10 . If you did not read the book first, you would miss a lot. But the author did have half a dozen people help her with the book. I think the producer needed the same. I very seldom read novels and this was not my bag.

'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' (1937)

It's the first full-length cel-animated feature in motion picture history, the first animated feature film produced in America, the first produced in full color, the first to be produced by Walt Disney Productions, and the first in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series.

Best part was watching it with a little guy seeing it for the first time.

Not for the more sensitive younger viewers. Don't be like 2 other families that brought their very young children who ended up crying at the *scarey* parts.

I thought it was excellent too. Sold as a action film (which usually means no story, no script, lousy acting... just lots of FX and CGI), in reality it has a great story to tell and excellent acting and directing. 3.5 stars out of 4.

I'm excited to see Pi, disappointed I haven't yet. The book was amazing.

Watched "A Place at the Table" today as part of a work project. Not the most in-depth look at hunger in America, but it synthesizes the material well and gives someone without a lot of knowledge on the subject a good jumping-off point. I like that they are specific with language, that they deal with the obesity/malnutrition dichotomy, and that they give a lot of hard stats to drive the emotional stuff home.

Life of Pi is also one that I've been wanting to see. I'm glad to hear it's a good movie, maybe I'll PPV it this weekend and watch it.

Really... you didn't see the Robert Redford '74 version? He was Gatsby and Sam Waterston (Law & Order) was Carraway. One of his earlier roles. Also Bruce Dern as Buchanan, and I think Mia Farrow at Daisy Buchanan. If you remember Howard DaSilva ("1776" and "Sergeant York"... to name a few), he played Meyer Wolfsheim. It wasn't bad... fairly close to the novel, as I remember. At least it stayed in the '20s. ;\)

Here's another goodie from the archives I watched the other night. 2 thumbs up!

Memento is presented as two different sequences of scenes: a series in black-and-white that is shown chronologically, and a series of color sequences shown in reverse order. The two sequences "meet" at the end of the film, producing one common story.

Christopher Nolan is an excellent director. In just a few years, he went from a $6,000 budget for an independent film to a $150 million for Batman Begins.

#2 Hannibal

#3 TED

Re: Last movie you watched - 08/05/13 08:00 AM

Yes, I agree teedoff27, we watched Ted on Pay Per View and my teenage daughters, 17 and 18 were there when we watched it. Actually, my 17 year old wanted to see it so bad, so we gave in and paid the Direct TV PPV price. I'll admit that I did laugh a couple of times, but overall the movie was so stupid and actually I was a bit embarrassed to be in the same room as my daughters while watching it, it was quite crude and just inappropriate. When will movie producers get it??? You don't need all the crude/rude and inappropriate movie scenes, most people I've talked to about that movie felt the same way as I did.

However, Twilight is a series that my 17 year old daughter was obsessed with for awhile, she read all of the books, which of course, she said the books were so much better than the movies, aren't they always? I will admit that the first couple of movies were pretty good I thought. I'm sure your daughter loved going with you to see the movie, so when you think of it that way, did you really waste your money and time?

We just recently rented "The Call" with Halle Barry. This movie by far was EXCELLENT! Very scary and full of suspenseful thrill. I recommend this movie to many, it is pretty graphic and a bit bothersome, but is also something that could happen in real life and most likely has happened.

Did you notice that James Carville played Gov. Crittendon? LOL...I backtracked those brief shots 3 times, thinking, "It can't be...he's in another line of work!".

Then again, politics (although he's played the political role of producer or director, or script writer, maybe, rather than actor, in this analogy) is largely the art of convincing people...making them believe, as are film or stage.

Hmnnn...maybe Penn & Teller's act would be more analogous to politics. They fool people, while making them like it, for a (successful) living.

Went opening night (9/27) to Metallica "Through the Never" in 3D IMAX. Of course the music and Live 3D concert footage was A++++. However, the *movie part* was pointless and very confusing. Total *movie* part totaled 20 minutes TOPS in 90 second snippets throughout the concert footage. Whats worse is that their songs that were background music in the *movie* parts didn't even coincide with the action(or lack there of) on the screen.

Disappointing..... I just wish they had non-stop concert footage and left out the movie part. I have been a fan of Metallica since age 13 and would of gladly paid to go see JUST the concert in IMAX 3D

I just don't understand people sometimes. And to think that many, many people in the South and other areas of the country still think that people with brown skin are less than human.

I'm sick over it.

Truth sick.

I felt the same emotions witnessing the cruel imagery in this amazing film.

Even though we intellectually know the score, there remain those who turn a blind eye toward racism and white skin privilege in America.

Sad that we still need such horrific realities exposed to the light of yet another generation.

* Snowpiercer: Kafkaesque metaphorical film. Stylish and abstract. Beautifully filmed commentary on the human condition.

* The Giver: Another "human condition" narrative. Derivative yet compelling look at mankind's challenges to balance his passionate nature with peace, safety and security.

While the films are set in futuristic settings (one utopian, the other dystopian), they are better described as philosophical treatises. Both intelligent, thoughtful and well filmed.

I'll have to download it. I get the feeling that it would translate better in print.

I enjoyed the movie, but I think the directer (Phillip Noyce) was pandering somewhat to modern audiences who crave special effects, chases, and the like.

Thx.

Under The Skin:

Not for all tastes. Neither art film, nor science fiction, yet both. Masterful use of minimalist art direction and Kubrick-like pacing, brings a unique depth to this moody, stylish, always intriguing story of a mysterious woman's personal voyage of self discovery. Soundtrack is a real standout.

I take this movie more as something of an experience, rather than as linear storytelling.

"Transgenic Wars," an award-winning film by French investigative journalist Paul Moreira, takes us on a journey through Europe and Latin America, looking at the effects of genetically engineered (GE) crops, both on livestock and human health.

It also delves into tangential concerns, such as the increased use of glyphosate-based herbicides, atrazine and 2,4-D, the latter of which was an ingredient in the devastating defoliant Agent Orange, used during the Vietnam War.

Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring

Featuring the voice of Mary-Louise Parker as the influential writer and scientist, Rachel Carson is an intimate portrait of the woman whose groundbreaking books revolutionized our relationship to the natural world. When Silent Spring was published in September 1962 it became an instant bestseller and would go on to spark dramatic changes in the way the government regulated pesticides. Drawn from Carson’s own writings, letters and recent scholarship, the film illuminates both the public and private life of the soft-spoken, shy scientist who launched the modern environmental movement.

The Pathological Optimist

The movie that tells Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s story, is now available to watch On Demand in the United States and Canada!

“How can a man with integrity and nothing but good intentions be so unfairly characterized by our media and so called credible individuals? This truly highlights what I had thought we as Americans had discovered, that you have to dig deeper for the truth. We can't trust the media anymore!!! Thank you Dr. Wakefield for your courage and love of humanity. We are in for the fight of our lives. No one seems to care about truth. I'm grateful to the millions of parents who do care and who do know the truth. If we don't stop this insanity, there will be no country or world to fight for. God help us.”

“This is a fantastic look inside what's happening with vaccines today regardless of where you stand on the issue. This doc shows all sides of the story, especially the side his accusers don't want you to see. It forced me to really look at how information is withheld from the public, altered for the public, and how hard the average citizen has to fight to hear the real truth in medicine. What was most shocking to me was how NOT SHOCKING the information was in the 1998 UK paper, and how Dr. Wakefield was singled for standing his ground. However you feel about vaccines, it's a very informative and rather unbiased film. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, that's for sure.”

About the Movie

In the center of the recent Tribeca Film Festival scandal surrounding his film VAXXED: From Cover-up to Controversy stands Andrew Wakefield, discredited and stripped of his medical license for his infamous study suggesting a link between the MMR vaccine, bowel disease, and autism. THE PATHOLOGICAL OPTIMIST takes us into the inner sanctum of Wakefield and his family from 2011- 2016 as he fights for his day in court in a little known defamation case against the British Medical Journal. Wakefield attempts to clear his name as the media-appointed Father of the Anti-vaccine movement. Director Miranda Bailey weaves a delicate portrait of a man who is THE PATHOLOGICAL OPTIMIST utilizing a never-before-seen, full access look at the man at the center of one of the biggest medical and media controversies of our times.

Genetically Modified Children (FREE VIEWING - LIMITED TIME) by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D.


Several years ago, I discovered that a genetically-engineered glyphosate-resistant tobacco seed had been developed and patented [1]; however, it is very difficult to find out what percentage of the tobacco crops are actually grown from these engineered seeds. One anecdotal answer to this question comes from the recently released documentary, Genetically Modified Children, produced and directed by Juliette Igier and Stephanie Lebrun. This movie describes the severe health issues that afflict the children of agricultural workers who live surrounded by glyphosate-resistant tobacco crops produced for sale exclusively to the tobacco company, Philip Morris. The farmers who were interviewed readily admitted that Philip Morris would most likely reject their product if they did not use glyphosate to control weeds and Bayer’s insecticide Confidor to control insects.

The documentary reveals the severe physical deformities, mental disabilities and cancers the children of these tobacco farmers are experiencing, and it offers the rather audacious hypothesis that glyphosate is inducing genetic mutations in the children of these farmers. Could they be right?

In the remainder of this article, I will first describe some of the serious health issues of the children who live near the tobacco fields, as portrayed in the documentary. After a short section about correlations between glyphosate and various diseases, I will discuss, in the following three sections, both the evidence that glyphosate causes birth defects, infertility, developmental issues, DNA damage and cancer, and the plausible biological mechanisms that could explain a link. The next section is devoted to describing the evidence that glyphosate can get into proteins by mistake in place of the coding amino acid glycine, which I now believe is its main mechanism of insidious cumulative toxicity. The rest of the article focuses on two proteins in particular that could get disrupted through glyphosate substitution, and I will explain how this disruption can lead to a runaway phosphorylation cascade resulting in cancer. I will conclude with an urgent request that we change our agricultural methods towards renewable organic solutions, in order to protect future generations from harm.

‘Vaxxed’ — The Hidden Story of How Vaccine Safety Has Been Undermined and Suppressed


In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the
Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.


The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their
final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over
several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides
the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.


Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely
accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine
may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield
directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed
by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.


Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured
children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of
autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.

------------------


The reason you've never heard about this is because federal health officials concealed
it with a statistical trick. By averaging the mercury exposure over a period of six months,
the spikes in mercury on the days of vaccination disappeared. By massaging the way the
data are reported the effect went from being 12 times over the level of mercury poisoning
to being inconsequential.

As noted by Kennedy:


"An analogy would be to compare taking two Tylenol tablets a day for a month to taking
60 Tylenol tablets in one day; the first exposure is acceptable, while the other is lethal."
