@panzade,
I like Scorcese as a director...is this comedic at all? It was listed on my screen as both comedy and drama. I intend on watching it. I watched Flight with D. Washington...he's always good. The movie was dark but good.

Watched 'The Grey' movie on TV the other night about a bunch of people trying to survive in the Alaskan wilderness after an airliner crash while being chased by a pack of wolves.
Liam Neeson stars but we can never warm to him because he's just a foul-mouthed shallow redneck like the rest of the survivors.
Huh he wasn't scared of nazis in Schindlers List but he's scared by a few doggies!
I'd nominate the big Alpha male wolf as the pictures Best Actor.

@Romeo Fabulini,
Typical empty headed American movie.

You normally seem to be a big fan of brainless USA movies, Romeo.

@JTT,
See JTT...you can't understand moods. People (yep...Americans, are very hard working). After you work a full-time week, cook, clean, run errands, help kids with homework, many have just a few minutes a day to relax. When you cut into that time , and push your own agenda, they will put you on ignore. You're on a mission(or so you think), to help people understand how horrible Americans are. You come across as a one-dimensional character...you have no other interests that you care to share...so people don't respond at all to you , no matter what the message is. You come across as a hate monger, since the only thing you seem to want to share is your hatred towards America. If you really want to influence people, learn to become a better diplomat...otherwise you're nothing but an annoying fly to swat. Perhaps you have something worthwhile sharing, but your attitude turns people off. What's the use in spending all this time, if everyone puts you on ignore. Nobody will hear you if you tell them they they're horrible right off the bat. And then maybe, all you want to contribute to your cause, is to effectively annoy people.

@Germlat,
I understand how many Americans react to the truth, Germlat. Look at how you reacted to the USA genocide against the people of the Chagos islands and you're not even American.

Why do you think Eisenhower dragged German citizens to Nazi death camps?

It's like you didn't even read what I took the time to write. That's the reason people you on ignore. Do you really think people are listening?

You probably don't even see the irony, Germy.

Irony or not...you don't seem to want another topic. Did I miss something?

Did you miss something? That's good. You have missed that there are no replies to incontrovertible facts that illustrate that the USA has committed myriad acts that are as evil as what the Nazis did.

I discuss a lot of other topics but I simply don't tolerate the incredible hypocrisy of those who try to defend the vicious war crimes and terrorism of the USA.

Again, do you make the same excuses for what the Nazis did, Germlat?

Biographical black comedy.
Supporting cast is top-notch.
Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie(drop-dead gorgeous) and Rob Reiner as his Dad...hilarious.
The soundtrack is very good too...some great snippets of old blues songs by Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters.
Altogether a great movie.

@panzade,
Last night I watched "A Face In The Crowd", circa 1957. Wow, it's still relevant, and Andy Griffen is phenomenal.

@glitterbag,
One of my favorite movies. Andy Griffith was actually frightening with his evil laugh and his Rush Limbaugh style eh?

One of the few movies I classify as a"Masterpiece"
Sorry I missed it. I assume it was on one of the Turner channels?

@farmerman,
I don't think there is anything more frightening than a pleasant face showing its evil side, like evil baby dolls, evil clowns and all the other stuff that chills you to the bone.

Andy Griffith was an enormously talented actor. He was very young at the time and whoever picked him to play the lead must have been a genius. I saw a young Lee Remick who played a 17 year old baton twirler, I always thought she was so lovely. I was too young to see the movie when it first came out, not a toddler but the subject matter would have been confusing for a kid my age.

Another film I love is "Sunset Blvd", it shows up from time to time and it always draws me in. Since I've gotten older, Gloria Swanson doesn't seem quite so old, crazy for sure, just not that old.

Just finished rewatching Les Miserables (2012) They needed to shave off 30+minutes from it. Still ran too long. Amanda Seyfried who played the older version of Cosette was the worst singer with her annoying trilling voice.

@JTT,
You should watch the documentary ----It's A Girl. Expand your horizons a little. There are thousands of injustices. Learn another song and dance. Many agree with your views on the Chagos incident...but, all your using it for is to promote an agenda of hate. People can see through the smoke and mirrors. It's getting quite boring .

I watched 'Phantoms' (1998 sci-fi film) on TV for the first time last night because the story sounded good; everybody in a small US town vanishes.
Peter O'Toole was in it and lifted it a bit, it was reasonably entertaining but nothing to write home about.
