Re: “This Hour Has 20 Years

Strange but true: I haven't watched the show since the early '90s. Has it improved? I'll take someone's word for it. Stranger but true: there are people out there who don't actually watch a lot of TV. I haven't had cable since the mid 90's. TV personalities are foreign to me(for the most part). Maybe Robs Fords is in the same boat? See also, Jack Donaghy's discovery of the Dilbert comic strip on 30 Rock.

So, its lasted longer than The Beachcombers. Big deal.

Re: “This Hour Has 20 Years

I have less than no sympathy for Rob Ford as a politician but I would be curious to know exactly how many public figures have those cutups from 22 Minutes ambushed - in front of their children? And, as for the notion of not recognizing such an "iconic character" here's a revelation. Just because we all have to pay for the C.B.C. it doesn't mean we all have to consume it's ordure. And, if we are obliged to underwrite Mary Walsh's ego - nobody, absolutely goddamned nobody, is obliged to feed into it.

If Truth in Advertising had any meaning in this country the show would be called "These 22 Minutes Seem Like An Hour."

Re: “This Hour Has 20 Years

22 Minutes formula for success: Say Punch Line(very loudly), Look directly at camera, tilt head, raise eyebrow, cue studio audience to laugh, repeat.

Re: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Hi Cranky! I'd love to fill you in.


Anyway, that big battle I allude to between the heroes and villains? In the novel that's all happening via one of Ashley Greene's character's visions. But since the books are from Bella's POV it's not really described at all. From what I've gathered, the director and writer here wanted to have something, anything happen in the climax of their franchise rather than two people talking. So they opted to put the whole fight in. There's another added twist to that which is spoiled lots of other places, but is genuinely laugh out lough funny. I'd recommend just going in blind from here.

Re: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Cranky - Bella wakes up to find Mitt Romney taking a shower. "Honey" she says" I just had the strangest dream"
He laughs and says "I'm nuking Iran today. How about a hummer?"

Re: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Apparently there is a big "twist" at the end. I haven't seen any of the movies or this one but am curious what the big deal is? *spoiler* away.....

Re: “Argo

Interesting , because in his book "Argo" Anthony Mendez gives major credit to both Ken Taylor and the Department of External Affairs for facilitating the rescue. In fact Mendez found dealing with Canadian bureacrats a pleasure compared to what he was used to. It's the Hollywood/C.I.A. connection that comes off as a minor portion of the operation.
Also, what "Iran War" is the author referring to? And it wasn't just the 6 rescued diplomats trapped in Iran. There were 53 more being held hostage in the American Embassy with the explicit consent of the Khomeini regime.

Re: “ParaNorman

"The film starts out on a gradual burn, but give it time and I think you'll be rewarded with some amazing animation, some dark plot twists and one of the most compelling third acts to grace a film in a long time. It's the kind of animated film I'm glad exists, as it's much more focused on delivering a strong message than anything else."

Re: “Total Recall

i actually thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Just a solid mindless action movie

Re: “Prometheus

Yes, an excellent film for the most part. A bit derivative of the original 'Alien' at times but that may have been on purpose. The storyline was fascinating. A bit of 'Chariots of the Gods' where ancients recorded stories of astronauts visiting Earth millennia ago giving mankind technology beyond his imagination. In the movie, the focus is on a theory that these astronauts actually bio-engineered humanity hence the journey of Prometheus to confirm this and meet their maker, so to speak.
Fassbender was a tremendously strong character in the movie as was Rapace. Hoping there's a followup movie. We'll see.
