  1. I’ve used it about 112 times over the years, but for those who don’t get the joke:

    It’s interesting that Claude Rains doesn’t emphasize the second “shocked” any more than the first, although that’s how I and everybody else remember it.

    I watched this on a rainy day over the summer. I had not seen it since I was a kid. I was amazed at well it holds up. These old movies were more like plays than what we think of as movies today, so I guess that's why it still works. Many movies from the 60's and 70's, in contrast, are hilariously bad by today's standards.

    I think Rains' straight, authoritative voice is the better effect.

    Overly emotional over-acting is how it is carried off in its cliched (popular) usage.

    Funny that. Casablanca features probably the most misquoted line ever. Of course I'm referring to "Play it again, Sam."

    Most attribute the line to Bogart's character Rick. Actually Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) does say "Play it once, Sam" to piano player Sam. She wants to hear "As Time Goes By."

    Later in the movie Bogart's line to Sam is simply "Play it!"

    Casablanca--the assembly-line studio production that became one of the most beloved movies of all time. So weird, so many obvious plot holes, and yet so good. A true victory of style and acting over substance.

    For fun, when you've watched it a few times, try to figure out the floorpan layout of Rick's cafe. It's as nonsensical and contradictory as the Hotel Overlook in The Shining.

    Quentin was okay in Reservoir Dogs, although not in the class of Buscemi, Keitel, Roth, and Madsen, although there's not much shame in that. But he was remarkably bad in Django Unchained with his random Australian accent and his decaying Weinstein-like flesh. Personally, I don't look all that great either at my age, but then I don't cast myself in movies.

  3. As I’ve said before, you can disagree with Tarantino’s politics, but you can’t argue that his films aren’t hilariously amusing and entertaining. Granted, I’ve only seen 6 of this movies, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, and The Hateful 8, but each of those movies is, in my humble opinion, a timeless classic.

    I didn't think that Django or Hateful Eight were that good. In both cases, I thought his idiot BLM racial politics got in the way of his movie. Also, what is the point of filming a movie in ULTRA PANAVISION 70! -- the very same lenses used to film Ben Hur no less! -- if 90% of the movie takes place indoors? The outdoor scenes in Hateful 8 were gorgeous, but the film itself is claustrophobic.

    However, you missed what has to be his masterpiece(s) -- Kill Bill. Yes, it has butt-kicking warrior babes, and yeah it's a bit fetishistic about them. We are even treated to a long closeup of Uma Thurman's feet. However, the movie is hilariously wacky, and it's beautifully filmed. You could take a random still from Kill Bill, print it, and put it on the wall of a gallery.

    Plus, David Carradine is over the top good as Bill, and it's filled with very strange memorable performances.

    While not in the same league, Death Proof -- his half of the Rodriguiz/Tarantino collaboration "Grindhouse," is also pretty good, and it's also short. Planet Terror is not as good, and is a bit much for me, but it does have Rose McGowan in it, and it ties in with Harvey Weinstein as apparently Rose was rather miffed that the movie was distributed by Weinstein.

    Sure, if you're a moral zombie or aesthetic idiot... WITH THE EXCEPTION OF RESERVOIR DOGS, which really is great.

    PULP FICTION displays lots of talent but in the service of what? Nihilism and ugliness. It made me sick to my stomach that audience were guffawing to all the vileness. I don't deny the talent but what ugliness.

    JACKIE BROWN was more of PULP FICTION though I will admit I only saw the second half by accident at my friend's house cuz he had cable. I thought the core plot with Greer and the white guy was pretty sound but the side stories had the same ugly inhumanity.

    As for KILL BILL 1 & 2, those were just bad without anything to recommend them. I was appalled that so many critics fell for them.

    INGLORIOUS had one inspired scene, the burning screen at the end. That was Grand Guignol at its best. But it was overlong and about as fun as spending an entire afternoon with those basement homo-redneck freaks in PULP.

    I didn't see DJANGO and HATEFUL EIGHT, but I gave up on Tarantino long ago.

    Usually, directors become too full of themselves after a string of hits. Like Fellini after 8 1/2 and Bertolucci after LAST TANGO. But Tarantino grew overripe almost right away after RESERVOIR.

  4. What bothers me about all this is that we pretend this is news or that we even know that Weinstein was the worst. He is just the most physically repulsive creature whom everyone already hated, but who else that is less visible is doing worse?

    It just reminds me of the Kafkaesque madness of Brian Williams being taken down in a huge trial by media for slowly exaggerating to total falsehood a story about the invasion of Iraq with sum total no self-awareness of the fact that nobody, including Williams, in the media ever faced consequences for pushing a false narrative they knew to be false, to push the war itself.

    It’s actually scary to me how quickly Iraq went down the memory-hole, to the point that George W. Bush is being hosted by Ellen to talk about his paintings because killing hundreds of thousands is nothing compared to suggesting a halt to illegal immigration!

    • Replies: @Inquiring Mind
    @Altai

    Where does this number of hundreds of thousands come from?

    Carpet bombing of cities was a thing in WW-II, of irrigation dams holding back flood waters in Korea, and of swaths of jungle hiding small concentrations of guerrilla fighters in Vietnam, but where did such a thing take place against Iraq?

    Yes, drone strikes against wedding parties and such, but how does their scale amount to hundreds of thousands of deaths?

    Given the weapons, tactics, and yes, restrictive rules-of-engagement in Iraq, what is a reasonable apportionment between deaths of persons pointing weapons at our troops compared with non-combatants? Everyone was a "civilian" over there, but I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.

    This time around, our military pointedly did not publicize a "body count" for a variety of military, social and political reasons. Among other things, claims of enemy dead are often vastly overstated. I would believe a death toll among enemy combatants as perhaps some small multiple of American military losses, owing to our better treatment of the wounded, better weapons and better conditioning of our soldiers and Marines to shoot straight (https://www.amazon.com/Killing-Psychological-Cost-Learning-Society/dp/0316040932). And maybe double that number for the deaths of civilians in the line-of-fire?

    But our insurgent-fighter enemy were not complete and total incompetents, so I cannot believe we were inflicting casualties on them out of proportion to what they inflicted on us. Furthermore, a lot of the fighting was one group of Iraqis (Shia militias?) fighting Sunni Iraqis or like the proto-ISIS people (Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq-or-whoever) taking over a town and killing the people they didn't like. I won't accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.

  6. Quentin Tarantino isn’t a good actor, even in the bit parts of his own movies he throws for himself.

    • Replies: @Pat Boyle
    @Sid

    Forgive me but - define your terms!

    There are at least two very different meanings to the term 'good actor'. Some can play many parts and others can play only one but people like that one character.

    Actors are men who engage in make believe for money. It is normally considered a sign of good acting if the actor can play different characters and simulate different emotions. But paradoxically most of our most successful actors are very limited in the range of roles they undertake.

    Al Pacino can not do comedy, nor can he play non-criminals very well. He has had almost all of his success playing Italian gangsters. John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised. Little Al gets to overact a lot but so did Wayne.

    There are also special types of acting. For example Bruce Lee who never fought a real match against a real opponent, became a screen legend by developing a style of movie fighting unlike any ever seen before. Movie Kung Fu is rather like the body building that did so well for Schwarzenegger - lots of posing. In real fighting, like you see in a boxing match, often the blow is so fast you have to watch it again in a slow motion. When Lee hit someone on screen he froze in place. He often grimaced and sometimes he squawked like a chicken. Not very true to life but very entertaining.

    Tarantino isn't very good at any style of acting. He always comes across as a dork and that doesn't seem to be acting.

    This will trigger Whiskeys asp tingle points. Amber Tamblyn, who is married to that unfunny (to each their own) idiot David Cross recently set off a social media campaign to shame actor James Woods, who is a scumbag but still…..

    Story goes when she was 16 Woods hit on her and her friends at some diner in LA. Could be true but its funny it took til now to come out w the information and funny how she’s apparently made Woods retire from showbiz.

    Noting Whiskeys observations about how women like Game of Thrones….its interesting Tamblyn used the phrase “the dethroning continues”….so the SJW youmg Twitterati sisterhood is making a power play against the patriarchy, or whatever.

    So if Weinstein, Woods & the rest of these Jewish power figures in Hollywood are being “dethroned”….then who is assuming the throne?

    Keep in mind for all their faults these old Jewish guys run an industry increasingly reliant and dependant as Whiskey and others have noted on foreign markets and in particular the Chinese market.

    Sure, Weinstein and Miramax may get eaten away by the lawyers and claimed rape victim’s coming litigation but what about the industry & all those jobs?

    Note as Whiskey would the age (40+) of most of the accusors….almost all bitter and washed up has beens obsessively blowing up social media in long shot attempts to maximize the monetization of whats left of their fame & careers.

    None of this will helpsell our film industry exports overseas.

    Most of these old Hollywood types are scumbags but its usually a 2 way street and they usually sell themselves on the couch for that big break.

    And the Weinstein company is done. It turns out they had an employment contract with Harvey that doesn't allow them to fire him for sexual assaults unless he's indicted. So they'll either have to hire him back or get taken to the cleaners by him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Rose McGowan gets sued too, since she took a settlement from HW. She should have gone to the police instead.

    As we're all tired of racism, and white supremacist has replaced racist as the slur du jour, sexism/sexist is now replaces racism/racist as the current outrage.

    Flirting with (noticing) females: Sexist.
    Not flirting (not noticing): Sexist.
    Being a white male: Sexist.

    Agreed. Unless there was actual rape (which has to be proved through due process), I have minimal to no sympathy for these women. Most are leftist feminists anyway, and are still bashing Trump just as much as they are bashing Weinstein.

    Weinstein was just someone who took the casting couch process a bit too far, and with too much ineptitude.

    If you really believe some of the M and V stuff you've posted about Chinese, then you should probably defer to others on Tarantino. If you believe de gustibus-style arguments about art, then there's no reason to make claims about Tarantino's skill.

    People seem to be overlooking that a lot of these sex-for-role exchanges are initiated and pursued aggressively by the woman. Every year thousands of pretty girls from all over the United States (and the world) descend on Los Angeles (and to a lesser extent, New York) hoping to make it in the entertainment industry. If only 1 in 50 is eager to f*ck her way to the top, guys like QT are going to have their hands full with advances.

    And it doesn’t hurt that women are basically hard-wired to be attracted to powerful men. Put another way, women have been trading sex for status for so long that at this point, it’s part of their DNA.

    The tweet itself seems cobbled together, over-edited by a committee.

    “… the revelations that have come to light about my friend for 25 years Harvey Weinstein …” :

    1. Awkward phrasing, a double revelation. Like saying “… the revealed things that have been revealed …”

    2. No comma after “years”. Did QT tell them to insert “my friend for 25 years” and he did not check the copy?

    “I need a few more days to process my pain, emotions, anger and memory, and then I will speak publicly about it.”

    1. “Memory”? Why? This is a tell. The only reason for needing to remember is (1) to see whether QT can add to Harvey’s crimes (QT won’t do that!) or (2) try to remember all the drunken groping that QT himself did so his future Official QT Statement won’t trigger some stray actress to go off on QT as a hypocrite.

    QT is playing for time. He licked his finger, stuck it in the air, and is very carefully checking the wind.

  39. Quentin Tarantino was born in Tennessee. Tarantino, as others here have pointed out, might be deliberately going over the top with his anti-White, anti-Christian, anti-German movies to make a point. Some Jews make no secret of their hatred for Whites, Christians and Germans. Tarantino knows damn well that Hollywood is an industry that is mostly Jew-controlled.

    It just reminds me of the Kafkaesque madness of Brian Williams being taken down in a huge trial by media for slowly exaggerating to total falsehood a story about the invasion of Iraq with sum total no self-awareness of the fact that nobody, including Williams, in the media ever faced consequences for pushing a false narrative they knew to be false, to push the war itself.

    It's actually scary to me how quickly Iraq went down the memory-hole, to the point that George W. Bush is being hosted by Ellen to talk about his paintings because killing hundreds of thousands is nothing compared to suggesting a halt to illegal immigration!

    Replies: @Inquiring Mind, @Forbes, @AndrewR

    Where does this number of hundreds of thousands come from?

    Carpet bombing of cities was a thing in WW-II, of irrigation dams holding back flood waters in Korea, and of swaths of jungle hiding small concentrations of guerrilla fighters in Vietnam, but where did such a thing take place against Iraq?

    Yes, drone strikes against wedding parties and such, but how does their scale amount to hundreds of thousands of deaths?

    Given the weapons, tactics, and yes, restrictive rules-of-engagement in Iraq, what is a reasonable apportionment between deaths of persons pointing weapons at our troops compared with non-combatants? Everyone was a “civilian” over there, but I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.

    This time around, our military pointedly did not publicize a “body count” for a variety of military, social and political reasons. Among other things, claims of enemy dead are often vastly overstated. I would believe a death toll among enemy combatants as perhaps some small multiple of American military losses, owing to our better treatment of the wounded, better weapons and better conditioning of our soldiers and Marines to shoot straight (https://www.amazon.com/Killing-Psychological-Cost-Learning-Society/dp/0316040932). And maybe double that number for the deaths of civilians in the line-of-fire?

    But our insurgent-fighter enemy were not complete and total incompetents, so I cannot believe we were inflicting casualties on them out of proportion to what they inflicted on us. Furthermore, a lot of the fighting was one group of Iraqis (Shia militias?) fighting Sunni Iraqis or like the proto-ISIS people (Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq-or-whoever) taking over a town and killing the people they didn’t like. I won’t accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.

    The number comes from numerous studies, including the well-conducted Lancet study. In the Lancet study, respondents were asked to show death certificates, in order to prevent people from lying. The Lancet study calculated around 655,000 deaths in Iraq through June 2006. The Lancet study might've been a conservative estimate, as it avoided more dangerous areas and avoided war ravaged Fallujah. A more recent Physicians study suggested over 1 million deaths.

    As for who's to "blame" for Iraq, the fact is this. Iraq was a stable country prior to the 2003 US invasion. After the invasion, over 1 million Iraqis are dead, with millions more injured, displaced, widowed, or orphaned. It was America that's responsible for what happened in that country. Nobody forced America to invade Iraq (most of the world was anti-war). America did what it wanted to, now that country has been totally destroyed.

    "Mission Accomplished."


    I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.
     
    If Iraq invaded America and American nationalists were gunned down, how'd you feel about that?
    If the Mexican army made an incursion into US territory (which happens sometimes) and anti-invasion militiamen were killed, would that be justified?

    I won’t accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.
     
    According to the Lancet study, 57% of known deaths were from coalition forces. So if we extrapolate that to the current numbers (650,000 dead in 2006, 1 million dead as of now), America has killed over half a million Iraqis. Who knows how many we've injured, displaced, orphaned, or widowed?

    By any reasonable standard, America committed genocide in Iraq.
    , @WJ
    @Inquiring Mind

    The civilians killed as a result of the civil war would not have been dead had we not invaded. Numerous studies for years have calculated the massive number of Iraqi dead. It's old news but then again you probably believe there Dubya Em Dees in Iraq also.

    I didn't think that Django or Hateful Eight were that good. In both cases, I thought his idiot BLM racial politics got in the way of his movie. Also, what is the point of filming a movie in ULTRA PANAVISION 70! -- the very same lenses used to film Ben Hur no less! -- if 90% of the movie takes place indoors? The outdoor scenes in Hateful 8 were gorgeous, but the film itself is claustrophobic.

    However, you missed what has to be his masterpiece(s) -- Kill Bill. Yes, it has butt-kicking warrior babes, and yeah it's a bit fetishistic about them. We are even treated to a long closeup of Uma Thurman's feet. However, the movie is hilariously wacky, and it's beautifully filmed. You could take a random still from Kill Bill, print it, and put it on the wall of a gallery.

    Plus, David Carradine is over the top good as Bill, and it's filled with very strange memorable performances.

    While not in the same league, Death Proof -- his half of the Rodriguiz/Tarantino collaboration "Grindhouse," is also pretty good, and it's also short. Planet Terror is not as good, and is a bit much for me, but it does have Rose McGowan in it, and it ties in with Harvey Weinstein as apparently Rose was rather miffed that the movie was distributed by Weinstein.

    2) the media has had the power to protect itself over these issues for decades and when a group of people are protected from repercussions of bad behavior they get worse which means the depths of Hollywood sleaze are probably very deep which means uncovering the sleaze is the best way to take them down (if that is what is happening).

    3) a lot of people say these actresses willingly sold themselves for fame and in some cases there’s probably a lot of truth in that however because so many people in the media have adult sleaze they want kept hidden it means they passively collude in keeping quiet about all the pedophile stuff. possibly sleazy adult actresses is the pathway to get at the pedophile stuff imo: all the Corey Haims and River Pheonixs.

    Quentin is what i wanted to be when i was younger. A true Horatio Alger American success story. A white working class aspiring nobody who hits success and the big time thru sheer talent and hard work. Too bad that era of the American Dream doesn't exist any more these days...

  72. Look out, Harvey, Quentin’s already jumped the ship. He’s just waiting on his publicist, agent, and attorneys to feed him a timely appropriate politically correct sounding soundbite that both casts blame on you while simultaneously appearing to stand up for an old friend (but not too strongly). When it comes down to it, Quentin’s for himself, first and last.

    So when’s Warners going to turn Weinstein’s woes into a movie? They’d look so PC, appearing to stand up for women and at the same time, get to stick it to an old rival in the biz.

    Woods is a strange guy. His conservatism appears to be sincere, but his personal history is decidedly sketchy. Kind of like someone else we could name - they also both love Twitter, come to think of it.

    He says he did not mean to retire, just to sell his house, and somehow his real estate agent botched the press release.

    He is also very much Irish Catholic, not Jewish.

    Story goes when she was 16 Woods hit on her and her friends at some diner in LA. Could be true but its funny it took til now to come out w the information and funny how she's apparently made Woods retire from showbiz.

    So if Weinstein, Woods & the rest of these Jewish power figures in Hollywood are being "dethroned"....then who is assuming the throne?

    Keep in mind for all their faults these old Jewish guys run an industry increasingly reliant and dependant as Whiskey and others have noted on foreign markets and in particular the Chinese market.

    Let's take a moment to think about the kind of man that would include a clause like that in his employment contract.

    Does anything more need to be said?

    Well, perhaps some more details about that contract: http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/12/weinstein-contract-the-weinstein-company-sexual-harassment-firing-illegal/

    According to the contract, if Weinstein "treated someone improperly in violation of the company's Code of Conduct," he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, "You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance."

    The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a "cure" for the misconduct and no further action can be taken. Translation -- Weinstein could be sued over and over and as long as he wrote a check, he keeps his job.

    The contract has specific language as to when the Board of Directors can fire Weinstein -- if he's indicted or convicted of a crime, but that doesn't apply here.
     
    It is interesting that indicted (not convicted) is sufficient for firing. I wonder how much negotiation was involved in finalizing these details.

    I'm actually not that big a fan of Mr. Weinstein or smug Hollywood types -- Jewish or otherwise BUT I know a witchhunt when I see 1 and I don't like social media or dogpiles and this checks off all those boxes of disgust for me.

    I wouldn't be shocked if McGowan signed a NDA when she took the money and frankly I hope she gets sued. Same with Miramax or WC or whoever the hell fired Harvey.

    In fact I'll say it -- I don't like Weinstein, or his fat ass brother -- but I like moral status signaling from attractive women on social media just to "reputation destroy" and to get attention points even less.

    Rose McGowan could get 90% of heterosexual men into her bed right now -- even without fame or money. Even at her current age in her 40s if she asked me for action the answer would be yes. So if she already has that going for her -- why the need to keep going?

    You know -- its called "over reach" and this is what it is. A few years back Pat Buchanan did a good piece about Hollywood and how its one of the last places where working class blue collar people -- often unionized -- can find decent employment. Make up artists, prop designers, set assistants, like 2 of my friends -- they work as extras in movies and tv shows, etc.

    These are just plain boring working people.

    And if Harvey goes -- for all his faults the man works his ass off and has put out quite a bit of quality product along with all the terrible schlock. But where does it stop? These Twitterati feminazis probably think they'll be put on some kinda mantle in charge of the studios but think again. It'll just put ordinary people out of business. Secretaries, assistants, prop makers, sound tech, whatever you name it....

    Meanwhile a few connected LA/NYC/Bay Area(where else would they be from besides maybe Chicago) lawyers, Jewish or otherwise will get some kind of fat check payout and a few actresses will get a payout -- probably in the 5 -6 figures -- hardly that big.

    All so a couple of aging harpies and to use Whiskey's word "sluts" can get Pokemon Points and attention as they circle the drain of their 50s and middle aged forced retirement.

    It'll just mean those jobs will go away and foreign countries will gain a larger market share in the Chinese and foreign entertainment/movie market.

    Say what you will -- its competitive and I imagine the casting couch in places like India(Bollywood), China, etc is probably a lot more heinous than it is here. Most of these models slash actresses go into a private hotel room knowing what they have to do in order to get their roles. They have to provide Weinstein or some other fat white and/or Jewish guy with oral sex or a massage or shower time blah blah so forth. Its how its been for 100 years and its "just how it is."

    I imagine its far far worse in foreign countries....

    These people just want attention and while Harvey is an asshole -- you kinda have to be to make a living much less be successful in a place like Hollywood or the entertainment BUSINESS that increasingly is reliant on that foreign revenue/income.

    A lot of people like to cite Hollywood and Silicon Valley as making California's economy very unique and that's true -- which means the state of California and in return our own economy will only suffer as a result.....

    The sharks are circling the bleeding carcass, the vultures circle the dying cow, however you wanna put it.

    But no one will gain anything from this besides the Twitterati types a little bit of desperate attention and a few shyster lawyers a bunch of money because as we all know at the end of the day its the lawyers and the various other parasites who collect fees who make the big bucks in scenarios like this while the idiot victims may collect a decent salary. But for McGowan 1) she won't make that much money off any legal payouts, assuming she doesn't get sued to hell and back for violating her NDA & 2) not only McGowan but what producer and especially male producer will want to work with these women again?

    While some producers may not make casting couch sessions mandatory -- if the actress/model initiates I doubt a lot of them will say no. Coming out like this in such a public way is going to paint a film of radioactive green slime all over these women. No sane producer will work with them again unless they're gay and/or have a death wish.

    Think about it -- if you're a producer -- would you ever work with any of these actresses again? Call it what you will - Weinstein's company was one of the most successful in the whole entire industry.

    If the lawyers eat it -- what sane producer much less company will take a risk EVER again WITH ANY OF THESE actresses? Not a single one. Would you risk your company or shareholders' assets and/or your own career just to cast some uppity over the hill broad seeking desperate attention?

    I sure as hell wouldn't.

    Hell the industry is moving toward kiddy fluff anyway with CGI, etc.

    "The Accountant" about a year ago was the last adult male oriented film I saw that was even halfway worth watching.....

    The industry is truly going Chinese/international -- and 1 thing international audiences don't want or need is/are over priced and over entitled has been starlets desperate for a "re break in".....

    Hate to say it -- but this could put a HUGE freeze on Hollywood for the next decade. A LOT of people are going to be really cautious about who they hire or work with after this - not only for insurance or litigation reasons but also for your own career sake.....

    And it means film quality will go to even more shit. Why take a big risk with an adult theme when you have a sure bet with some shit superhero product or a CGI kiddy film?

    No test scores will tell you about how a person thinks. They're numbers for God's sake! The best way to understand how a person thinks is to read his works. You're already doing that, and yet the question that nags you is his test scores! Why don't you throw in his income and penis size, too? It's never about Steve anyway, but how you stack up. As I said, autist.

    Like everybody here, I understand how IQ correlates with socioeconomic outcomes, but that's all it is, a measure of certain tendencies. If someone authors a book, a song, or a theory that I appreciate, I will not think him better or worse if his IQ score is 160 or 130 or 90. What does that have to do with anything?

    (Richard Feynman, by the way, was tested to have an IQ in the 120s. Steve Hsu disputes this result. Maybe Hsu is right and Feynman "true IQ" is higher, or maybe he's "just better organized," I couldn't care less. The guy's still Richard Feynman!)

    So, in other words, the "casting-couch process" (forced sexual congress with young girls - often NOT seasoned "players" at all as you allege but much more frequently, happy, hopeful, small-town virgins - in exchange for employment / wealth / fame) is perfectly ok, as long as it's carried out with discretion, and finesse ?

    Funnily enough, that's exactly what every White-hating racist degenerate Jewish pervert privately thinks about every White female. I bet you wouldn't have the guts to tell your wife, partner or daughter that's how you really feel about defenceless females. With your views, you're in good Jewish company.

    Wow. It's almost as if you actually approve of the way that Hollywood was actually set up (by Jews) specifically to facilitate a ready, endless supply of young, beautiful female meat (to Jews), in exchange for a living.

    And Yes, I'm a White nationalist, and believe that wealthy, powerful, racist, degenerate cultural marxist political Jews are the scum of the earth. OK with you ? No ? Well... never mind.

    And the Weinstein company is done. It turns out they had an employment contract with Harvey that doesn’t allow them to fire him for sexual assaults unless he’s indicted. So they’ll either have to hire him back or get taken to the cleaners by him.
     
    Let's take a moment to think about the kind of man that would include a clause like that in his employment contract.

    Does anything more need to be said?

    Well, perhaps some more details about that contract: http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/12/weinstein-contract-the-weinstein-company-sexual-harassment-firing-illegal/

    According to the contract, if Weinstein "treated someone improperly in violation of the company's Code of Conduct," he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, "You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance."

    The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a "cure" for the misconduct and no further action can be taken. Translation -- Weinstein could be sued over and over and as long as he wrote a check, he keeps his job.

    The contract has specific language as to when the Board of Directors can fire Weinstein -- if he's indicted or convicted of a crime, but that doesn't apply here.
     
    It is interesting that indicted (not convicted) is sufficient for firing. I wonder how much negotiation was involved in finalizing these details.

There are plenty of famous dead men-JFK-that would probably be pilloried today for sexual harassment. One only wonders how many more retrospective cases we’re going to get. And this will have a real impact on our dating norms, as the contradiction between what women say they want and what they might actually want gets larger. Along with the cost for getting the decision wrong, since women still expect men to be telepaths.

    Still, I’d like to point out that this is the same self-declared morally superior industry that has been hectoring Middle America on its values since the early 1970s. So the next time I hear some Streep figure on that score, they are only going to get one finger from me.

    Quentin Tarantino isn't a good actor, even in the bit parts of his own movies he throws for himself.

    Replies: @Pat Boyle

    Forgive me but – define your terms!

    There are at least two very different meanings to the term ‘good actor’. Some can play many parts and others can play only one but people like that one character.

    Actors are men who engage in make believe for money. It is normally considered a sign of good acting if the actor can play different characters and simulate different emotions. But paradoxically most of our most successful actors are very limited in the range of roles they undertake.

    Al Pacino can not do comedy, nor can he play non-criminals very well. He has had almost all of his success playing Italian gangsters. John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised. Little Al gets to overact a lot but so did Wayne.

    There are also special types of acting. For example Bruce Lee who never fought a real match against a real opponent, became a screen legend by developing a style of movie fighting unlike any ever seen before. Movie Kung Fu is rather like the body building that did so well for Schwarzenegger – lots of posing. In real fighting, like you see in a boxing match, often the blow is so fast you have to watch it again in a slow motion. When Lee hit someone on screen he froze in place. He often grimaced and sometimes he squawked like a chicken. Not very true to life but very entertaining.

    Tarantino isn’t very good at any style of acting. He always comes across as a dork and that doesn’t seem to be acting.

    Wayne did not have a ton of range as an actor, but he definitely had a lot of depth. Red River and The Searchers are incredibly dark performances.

    Quite frankly, he's attacked because of his politics and his genre. He was very anti-left, anti-commie guy and was vocal about it. And his genre was beloved by white Christian straight males, which spoke to them.

    You'll note that as SJWs in Hollywood have degraded the money-making Western to the point now that we're lucky if there's one Western picture per year, and those are either boring or remakes or "revisionist" or all three, and there isn't a single Western TV series. They did that on purpose---the Western was too heroic and rallying for the descendants of Pioneer Americans

    Sure, if you’re a moral zombie or aesthetic idiot… WITH THE EXCEPTION OF RESERVOIR DOGS, which really is great.

    PULP FICTION displays lots of talent but in the service of what? Nihilism and ugliness. It made me sick to my stomach that audience were guffawing to all the vileness. I don’t deny the talent but what ugliness.

    JACKIE BROWN was more of PULP FICTION though I will admit I only saw the second half by accident at my friend’s house cuz he had cable. I thought the core plot with Greer and the white guy was pretty sound but the side stories had the same ugly inhumanity.

    As for KILL BILL 1 & 2, those were just bad without anything to recommend them. I was appalled that so many critics fell for them.

    INGLORIOUS had one inspired scene, the burning screen at the end. That was Grand Guignol at its best. But it was overlong and about as fun as spending an entire afternoon with those basement homo-redneck freaks in PULP.

    I didn’t see DJANGO and HATEFUL EIGHT, but I gave up on Tarantino long ago.

    Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein at September Gala: ‘I Am Israeli in My Heart and Mind’

    The New York Times, New Yorker, and numerous other news outlets have been reporting widely on accusations that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, sometimes called one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, sexually assaulted actresses for decades. Some of the news stories point out that Weinstein has been known as a supporter of progressive causes and raised money for Hillary Clinton, but none mention his longtime support for Israel. Weinstein’s father fought in the Haganah (precurser to today’s IDF) during Israel’s founding war to expel the indigenous Palestinian population.

    Oscar-winning film producer Harvey Weinstein expressed his deep love and appreciation for the Jewish state on Monday, saying, “I am an Israeli in my heart and mind.”

    Speaking on the red carpet at The Algemeiner‘s fourth annual gala in New York City, Weinstein emphasized, “I love that country, I love what it stands for, I am proud to be Jewish.”

  100. How many people realize that the scene involving the killing of the German offficer with the baseball bat in the movie Inglorious Basterds was based on real life events?

    A Jew by the name of Salomon Morel was deliberately appointed as a head of a concentration camp in post war Poland that held many German prisoners of war. Morel then used a baseball bat (or club) to kill more than a thousand, innocent, post war German prisoners by bashing them in the head with it. Jews were also deliberately appointed to head other post war German concentration camps and were often almost as cruel. Apparently part of the so called “Morgenthau Plan” was in fact implemented in these camps.

    Here is a heavily sanitized wikipedia article on Morel in which his exact murder methodology isn’t mentioned.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salomon_Morel

    Movie director Tarantino must have been aware that this had happened because he included a strikingly similar scene in his movie script.

    I refused to see the movie Inglourious Basterd because I quickly realized from descriptions of its various scenes that it was nothing more than just more Jewish revenge porn which I absolutely refuse to subsidize.

    Morel died in a warm bed in Israel at an advanced age. Neither Morel or any of the other Jewish post war concentration camp commanders were ever prosecuted for their genocide.

    Similarly , the Jewish East German Stasi head Markus Wolfe was not only not prosecuted for his actions, which on several occasions apparently involved the killing of American agents, he was rumored to have been offered a job at Homeland Security in the US just before his death. I guess being Jewish gives a sort of immunity (Jew-munity) and means you never have to say your’re sorry.

    Salomon Morel is considered a hero in present day Israel for is actions. Harvey Weinstein apparently also considers Morel a hero.

  109. John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised.

    Wayne’s career seems to have started to flourish during World War II, in which he was a little too old to serve. His wooden acting did him no harm in roles as a typical stolid everyman American hero, and no doubt many male audience members identified with him. In real life he was something of an intellectual, spoke Spanish fluently, and was a heavy drinker and smoker. Probably, like George W. Bush his slow drawl was an affectation to hide his real self, but it worked for him.

    The only Wayne movie I ever remember watching was The Quiet Man, a 1952 Technicolor movie some of which was shot on location in Ireland in which Wayne who was now 45 and looking every day of it and more, played an ex-boxer who had killed a man in the ring and quit boxing who fell in love with an Irish colleen, but was supposed to fight for her dowry. Needless to say the entire second half of the movie is a prolonged bare knuckles fight scene and Wayne got the girl.

    I dunno. Personally, I grew up watching the Billy-Madisonization of Jewish Culture. Some Jewish kids were into intellectual stuff, but most were into either money or hedonism, the Risky-Business outlook. Unlike previous generations whose themes were struggle, overcoming obstacles, family, identity, cultural neurosis, the Jews I knew were well-adjusted socially and only cared about sex, fun, pleasure, and never-growing-up. Many were into Peter Pan complex and a whole bunch decided never to get married cuz it’d get in the way of screwing around and enjoying the nightlife. So many had a mindset like Robert Downey Jr. It’s no wonder that the #1 cause of Jews of my generation became homo this, homo that. Jordan Belfort was sign of things to come. Signs were there with Philip Roth’s notorious book, but there was an element of shame, doubt, anxiety. But then, Jewish attitudes became utterly shameless, and we ended up with the Weiner Spectacle. To some of the Jewish kids I grew up with, Adam Sander was to them what Dylan and Hoffman had been to boomer generation of Jews. A folk hero.
    Of course, most of them didn’t go crazy with excess but the main theme was just having fun and getting along… the very reason why the Allen character is upset with the young Jewish guy in ANYTHING ELSE. He should be happy since the younger guy seems to be well-adjusted but that’s exactly what upsets Allen’s character for whom anxiety and paranoia are intrinsic elements of modern Jewish identity.

    Given that the younger generations of Jews had it so good or came to be totally accepted into the American mainstream, one would think Jewish animus would decline… but in some ways, it’s gotten even worse since the 90s. Why? Why would Jews act so bitter now that they are accepted into every institution and praised from all quarters? And why would young Jewish kids who grew up with privilege and fun be so bitter and angry? I didn’t see such emotions among them when growing up.

    Is it delayed outburst of pentup emotions? Were Jews holding in all their rage in the past out of fear or trepidation? Don’t rock the boat and all that. But finally all their pent-up frustrations are pouring out? This might be understandable among older generation of Jews or even Boomer Jews. But why so much of this vitriol among Gen X Jews who didn’t face the obstacles and snubs earlier generation of Jews did? Did they inherit this attitude from their parents? Is it just a natural part of Jewish personality that is now totally off the leash?

    Paradoxically, did Jewish Ascent lead to even more paranoia? When Jews were on the climb, they were envied or admired for their success, but they were not king of the hill. But now that they are king of the hill, they may be even more anxiety-ridden since they are a minority elite, a precarious position to hold. An elite that rules over people of same race is like the head controlling its own body. But a minority elite ruling over a majority composed of different people is like the dwarf in MAD MAX THUNDERDOME controlling the body of a big guy. It’s an unsure proposition with no guarantee that the other will always obey. In the past, Jews used to call Nazis ‘nazis’. Now, any sign of white identity is ‘nazi’ because Jewish Power depends on whites serving Jewish than white interests. We live in a nation where a Jew who extols his own identity and tribe is hailed to high heaven and showered with prizes and where a white person who defends his identity and race is denounced, called a ‘nazi’, and blacklisted from any work. So, we are supposed to confirm the blood-and-soil rights of Israel but hell with Orban and Hungarians for insisting Hungary is theirs.

    Also, the king-of-the-hill nature of power politics means that Jews are vulnerable as the new King of the Hill. The rule of the game is everyone tries to topple the king of the hill. When wasps were king of the hill, Jews could easily ally with other groups to bring down the wasp king. But now that they are the king, they fear everyone will pull them down. So, even as Jews are the king, they must keep the crown on the head of the wasps and ‘white power’. So, whites are called ‘white supremacist’ even though most of the supremacist power in Hollywood, Wall Street, Ivy Leagues, Las Vegas, Silicon Valley, and Deep State are held by Jews than whites.

    Diversity makes for strange anxieties. Jewish experience in America has been to see Wasps as their main enemy while at the same time seeing them as their main saviors. After all, Jewish success was possible ONLY BECAUSE of the Anglo-American model of meritocracy, rule of law, and property rights. Though Anglos didn’t practice this fairly at all times, they did so more than any other group. Indeed, Jews wanted to get away from ‘greaseballs’, ‘Russkies’, ‘Polacks’, Magyars, and etc in the Old World. They wanted to come to the US precisely because they heard it was freer and committed to rule of law, esp compared to Latin America ruled by a bunch of Gomezers. Gandhi also knew this contradiction about Anglos. Sure, they were hypocritical bloody buggers, but they did practice a kind of meritocracy and were sincere in their pride of integrity and principles. So, if the contradictions were pointed out, Anglos felt compelled to do something about it.

    Yet, there were barriers to the Wasp castle, and Jews had to make common cause with peoples they hated in the Old World: all the lowlife white ethnic groups who were far more tribal, clannish, corrupt, and unprincipled than Wasps. So, Jews were doing two things at once. They were running from the ethnics(and scary blacks) toward the Wasps(as saviors) AND leading the ethnic-black army against the Wasps(as enemies). And this dichotomy exists to this day. When Jews want protection, they don’t go to blacks, browns, yellows, or Muslims. They run to whites, esp Wasps, and plead/demand ‘protect us, save us, fight for us, champion us.’ But at the same time, Jews rally non-whites to denounce ‘white privilege’.

    Jews see the Wasp straight man as both a pillar to lean on and an idol to pull down. But can Jewish power continue without the white straight man? It’s like respectable bourgeois culture served as the straight man to modernism. Even as modernism mocked and subverted the bourgeosie, modernism couldn’t have done without it. It was the pillar that served as backbone to anarchic modernist energies and etc. It’s like Catherine in JULES AND JIM can play her experimental games with life because she can always lean on the reliable Jules. It’s like Marx Brothers comedy would fall apart without the straight man or woman to play against.

    Paradoxically, Jews became most screwy where they had the most power surrounded by those who were deemed their allies: ethnics and blacks. You’d think NY Jews would be least nuts since Jews have so much money, security, and power in NY. And yet, their prominence made them real players, and this meant Jews had to jostle for influence with blacks, ethnics, Catholics, and etc(none of whom really liked Jews). And in schools, Jewish students would have stood out since they constituted a visible ethnic group. So, this made Jews more contentious with groups who were their official allies.

    In contrast, Jews who grew up with much less power in homogeneous gentile communities often grew up with less hostility to whites. Dylan could be a nasty character and did his Civil Rights thing, but he was never quite so blatantly anti-white or anti-American as some NY Jews. Same goes for the Coen Brothers and Spielberg, who for all their Liberalism, seem to really love Americana. As Dylan grew up mostly around a homogeneous community of Northern Europeans, he didn’t have to jostle with so many nasty ethnics(esp greaseballs and dumb ‘polacks’ and etc) as NY Jews did. Because Jews had much less power in the Hibbing area, they just tried to fit in, and since the gentiles didn’t feel threatened by Jews, they just tolerated them. So, when Jews were with their official enemies, the Wasps, they got along just fine. But when Jews were surrounded by their official allies, they never got along and grew bitter. But since they had to maintain the alliance, all their anger about ‘schvartzes’, ‘dagos’, ‘polacks’, Catholics, Irish, Puerto Ricans, and etc had to be suppressed and directed at… Rednecks in the South and Country Clubs in the North.

    Rose McGowen is encouraging others to speak out against Harvey. She had her chance in 1997. She instead chose to to sign a NDA and take 100 Gs. If she spoke out then, she would have prevented many girls from being fondled by Harvey over the next twenty years. Rose would have had no career, but isn't this more noble?
    I know many producers are making a list of Harvey's accusers. They will not be invited to audition for any movies soon. If the actress is rejected for the role, she will claim to be "Groped" and such. Who needs the extra headache?
    Oddly enough Harvey has not accused his accusers of being anti-Semitic. To these non Jewish person, it seems like a pogrom is being organized and Rose is ready to lead the Cossacks on a ride. This story seems deeper than imagined.

    Forgive me but - define your terms!

    There are at least two very different meanings to the term 'good actor'. Some can play many parts and others can play only one but people like that one character.

    Actors are men who engage in make believe for money. It is normally considered a sign of good acting if the actor can play different characters and simulate different emotions. But paradoxically most of our most successful actors are very limited in the range of roles they undertake.

    Al Pacino can not do comedy, nor can he play non-criminals very well. He has had almost all of his success playing Italian gangsters. John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised. Little Al gets to overact a lot but so did Wayne.

    There are also special types of acting. For example Bruce Lee who never fought a real match against a real opponent, became a screen legend by developing a style of movie fighting unlike any ever seen before. Movie Kung Fu is rather like the body building that did so well for Schwarzenegger - lots of posing. In real fighting, like you see in a boxing match, often the blow is so fast you have to watch it again in a slow motion. When Lee hit someone on screen he froze in place. He often grimaced and sometimes he squawked like a chicken. Not very true to life but very entertaining.

    Tarantino isn't very good at any style of acting. He always comes across as a dork and that doesn't seem to be acting.

    Wayne did not have a ton of range as an actor, but he definitely had a lot of depth. Red River and The Searchers are incredibly dark performances.

    Quite frankly, he’s attacked because of his politics and his genre. He was very anti-left, anti-commie guy and was vocal about it. And his genre was beloved by white Christian straight males, which spoke to them.

    You’ll note that as SJWs in Hollywood have degraded the money-making Western to the point now that we’re lucky if there’s one Western picture per year, and those are either boring or remakes or “revisionist” or all three, and there isn’t a single Western TV series. They did that on purpose—the Western was too heroic and rallying for the descendants of Pioneer Americans

    I’m actually not that big a fan of Mr. Weinstein or smug Hollywood types — Jewish or otherwise BUT I know a witchhunt when I see 1 and I don’t like social media or dogpiles and this checks off all those boxes of disgust for me.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if McGowan signed a NDA when she took the money and frankly I hope she gets sued. Same with Miramax or WC or whoever the hell fired Harvey.

    In fact I’ll say it — I don’t like Weinstein, or his fat ass brother — but I like moral status signaling from attractive women on social media just to “reputation destroy” and to get attention points even less.

    Rose McGowan could get 90% of heterosexual men into her bed right now — even without fame or money. Even at her current age in her 40s if she asked me for action the answer would be yes. So if she already has that going for her — why the need to keep going?

    You know — its called “over reach” and this is what it is. A few years back Pat Buchanan did a good piece about Hollywood and how its one of the last places where working class blue collar people — often unionized — can find decent employment. Make up artists, prop designers, set assistants, like 2 of my friends — they work as extras in movies and tv shows, etc.

    These are just plain boring working people.

    And if Harvey goes — for all his faults the man works his ass off and has put out quite a bit of quality product along with all the terrible schlock. But where does it stop? These Twitterati feminazis probably think they’ll be put on some kinda mantle in charge of the studios but think again. It’ll just put ordinary people out of business. Secretaries, assistants, prop makers, sound tech, whatever you name it….

    Meanwhile a few connected LA/NYC/Bay Area(where else would they be from besides maybe Chicago) lawyers, Jewish or otherwise will get some kind of fat check payout and a few actresses will get a payout — probably in the 5 -6 figures — hardly that big.

    All so a couple of aging harpies and to use Whiskey’s word “sluts” can get Pokemon Points and attention as they circle the drain of their 50s and middle aged forced retirement.

    It’ll just mean those jobs will go away and foreign countries will gain a larger market share in the Chinese and foreign entertainment/movie market.

    Say what you will — its competitive and I imagine the casting couch in places like India(Bollywood), China, etc is probably a lot more heinous than it is here. Most of these models slash actresses go into a private hotel room knowing what they have to do in order to get their roles. They have to provide Weinstein or some other fat white and/or Jewish guy with oral sex or a massage or shower time blah blah so forth. Its how its been for 100 years and its “just how it is.”

    I imagine its far far worse in foreign countries….

    These people just want attention and while Harvey is an asshole — you kinda have to be to make a living much less be successful in a place like Hollywood or the entertainment BUSINESS that increasingly is reliant on that foreign revenue/income.

    A lot of people like to cite Hollywood and Silicon Valley as making California’s economy very unique and that’s true — which means the state of California and in return our own economy will only suffer as a result…..

    The sharks are circling the bleeding carcass, the vultures circle the dying cow, however you wanna put it.

    But no one will gain anything from this besides the Twitterati types a little bit of desperate attention and a few shyster lawyers a bunch of money because as we all know at the end of the day its the lawyers and the various other parasites who collect fees who make the big bucks in scenarios like this while the idiot victims may collect a decent salary. But for McGowan 1) she won’t make that much money off any legal payouts, assuming she doesn’t get sued to hell and back for violating her NDA & 2) not only McGowan but what producer and especially male producer will want to work with these women again?

    While some producers may not make casting couch sessions mandatory — if the actress/model initiates I doubt a lot of them will say no. Coming out like this in such a public way is going to paint a film of radioactive green slime all over these women. No sane producer will work with them again unless they’re gay and/or have a death wish.

    Think about it — if you’re a producer — would you ever work with any of these actresses again? Call it what you will – Weinstein’s company was one of the most successful in the whole entire industry.

    If the lawyers eat it — what sane producer much less company will take a risk EVER again WITH ANY OF THESE actresses? Not a single one. Would you risk your company or shareholders’ assets and/or your own career just to cast some uppity over the hill broad seeking desperate attention?

    I sure as hell wouldn’t.

    Hell the industry is moving toward kiddy fluff anyway with CGI, etc.

    “The Accountant” about a year ago was the last adult male oriented film I saw that was even halfway worth watching…..

    The industry is truly going Chinese/international — and 1 thing international audiences don’t want or need is/are over priced and over entitled has been starlets desperate for a “re break in”…..

    Hate to say it — but this could put a HUGE freeze on Hollywood for the next decade. A LOT of people are going to be really cautious about who they hire or work with after this – not only for insurance or litigation reasons but also for your own career sake…..

    And it means film quality will go to even more shit. Why take a big risk with an adult theme when you have a sure bet with some shit superhero product or a CGI kiddy film?

    Personally I don’t care very much how you look but I am interested in how you think.

    No test scores will tell you about how a person thinks. They’re numbers for God’s sake! The best way to understand how a person thinks is to read his works. You’re already doing that, and yet the question that nags you is his test scores! Why don’t you throw in his income and penis size, too? It’s never about Steve anyway, but how you stack up. As I said, autist.

    Like everybody here, I understand how IQ correlates with socioeconomic outcomes, but that’s all it is, a measure of certain tendencies. If someone authors a book, a song, or a theory that I appreciate, I will not think him better or worse if his IQ score is 160 or 130 or 90. What does that have to do with anything?

    (Richard Feynman, by the way, was tested to have an IQ in the 120s. Steve Hsu disputes this result. Maybe Hsu is right and Feynman “true IQ” is higher, or maybe he’s “just better organized,” I couldn’t care less. The guy’s still Richard Feynman!)

    That is a great scene in an otherwise routine movie(though pretty good for what it is). That's Tarantino at his best when he had something like a soul. The scene is closer to RESERVOIR than the later movies. It has violence and depravity but also an admiring nod to professionalism. Walken has authority and style, an aura of mastery and experience. And Hopper as the father is an ex-cop. He's seen a lot and knows the stakes involved. He knows he can't escape death but can play it right so that he can die with dignity. He insults Walken but wins his respect in the game of wits and nerves. And finally, it's nevertheless brutal and sad that he must die. It has comedy, irony, and tragedy. RESERVOIR had that blend. But starting with PULP, the tragic element was gone. Whenever someone got mauled or killed, it was just for stupid laughs.

    TRUE ROMANCE has another inspired scene with Gary Oldman as a whigro eating Chinese carryout.

    Roger Avary had a similar sensibility as Tarantino, same promise and same flaws. KILLING ZOE shows he can ride the waves and weave in and out of tight spots as a visualist. But such wallowing in mindlessness and for what end? To match empirical and measured Anglo temperament with hot passionate French temperament? What if George Washington and Danton were bank robbers?

    And the Weinstein company is done. It turns out they had an employment contract with Harvey that doesn't allow them to fire him for sexual assaults unless he's indicted. So they'll either have to hire him back or get taken to the cleaners by him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Rose McGowan gets sued too, since she took a settlement from HW. She should have gone to the police instead.

    Oh — and Odenkirk is a terrible comedian but good character actor.

    To each their own but Cross is still an unfunny pretentious asshole.

    If I was Harvey — I’d give them the finger, liquidate as much of my assets as possible and move them to Switzerland and Israel and then I’d go enjoy my yaucht in the Mediterranean as others have suggested….

    @Dave Pinsen

    I'm actually not that big a fan of Mr. Weinstein or smug Hollywood types -- Jewish or otherwise BUT I know a witchhunt when I see 1 and I don't like social media or dogpiles and this checks off all those boxes of disgust for me.

    I wouldn't be shocked if McGowan signed a NDA when she took the money and frankly I hope she gets sued. Same with Miramax or WC or whoever the hell fired Harvey.

    In fact I'll say it -- I don't like Weinstein, or his fat ass brother -- but I like moral status signaling from attractive women on social media just to "reputation destroy" and to get attention points even less.

    Rose McGowan could get 90% of heterosexual men into her bed right now -- even without fame or money. Even at her current age in her 40s if she asked me for action the answer would be yes. So if she already has that going for her -- why the need to keep going?

    You know -- its called "over reach" and this is what it is. A few years back Pat Buchanan did a good piece about Hollywood and how its one of the last places where working class blue collar people -- often unionized -- can find decent employment. Make up artists, prop designers, set assistants, like 2 of my friends -- they work as extras in movies and tv shows, etc.

    These are just plain boring working people.

    And if Harvey goes -- for all his faults the man works his ass off and has put out quite a bit of quality product along with all the terrible schlock. But where does it stop? These Twitterati feminazis probably think they'll be put on some kinda mantle in charge of the studios but think again. It'll just put ordinary people out of business. Secretaries, assistants, prop makers, sound tech, whatever you name it....

    Meanwhile a few connected LA/NYC/Bay Area(where else would they be from besides maybe Chicago) lawyers, Jewish or otherwise will get some kind of fat check payout and a few actresses will get a payout -- probably in the 5 -6 figures -- hardly that big.

    All so a couple of aging harpies and to use Whiskey's word "sluts" can get Pokemon Points and attention as they circle the drain of their 50s and middle aged forced retirement.

    It'll just mean those jobs will go away and foreign countries will gain a larger market share in the Chinese and foreign entertainment/movie market.

    Say what you will -- its competitive and I imagine the casting couch in places like India(Bollywood), China, etc is probably a lot more heinous than it is here. Most of these models slash actresses go into a private hotel room knowing what they have to do in order to get their roles. They have to provide Weinstein or some other fat white and/or Jewish guy with oral sex or a massage or shower time blah blah so forth. Its how its been for 100 years and its "just how it is."

    I imagine its far far worse in foreign countries....

    These people just want attention and while Harvey is an asshole -- you kinda have to be to make a living much less be successful in a place like Hollywood or the entertainment BUSINESS that increasingly is reliant on that foreign revenue/income.

    A lot of people like to cite Hollywood and Silicon Valley as making California's economy very unique and that's true -- which means the state of California and in return our own economy will only suffer as a result.....

    The sharks are circling the bleeding carcass, the vultures circle the dying cow, however you wanna put it.

    But no one will gain anything from this besides the Twitterati types a little bit of desperate attention and a few shyster lawyers a bunch of money because as we all know at the end of the day its the lawyers and the various other parasites who collect fees who make the big bucks in scenarios like this while the idiot victims may collect a decent salary. But for McGowan 1) she won't make that much money off any legal payouts, assuming she doesn't get sued to hell and back for violating her NDA & 2) not only McGowan but what producer and especially male producer will want to work with these women again?

    While some producers may not make casting couch sessions mandatory -- if the actress/model initiates I doubt a lot of them will say no. Coming out like this in such a public way is going to paint a film of radioactive green slime all over these women. No sane producer will work with them again unless they're gay and/or have a death wish.

    Think about it -- if you're a producer -- would you ever work with any of these actresses again? Call it what you will - Weinstein's company was one of the most successful in the whole entire industry.

    If the lawyers eat it -- what sane producer much less company will take a risk EVER again WITH ANY OF THESE actresses? Not a single one. Would you risk your company or shareholders' assets and/or your own career just to cast some uppity over the hill broad seeking desperate attention?

    I sure as hell wouldn't.

    Hell the industry is moving toward kiddy fluff anyway with CGI, etc.

    "The Accountant" about a year ago was the last adult male oriented film I saw that was even halfway worth watching.....

    The industry is truly going Chinese/international -- and 1 thing international audiences don't want or need is/are over priced and over entitled has been starlets desperate for a "re break in".....

    Hate to say it -- but this could put a HUGE freeze on Hollywood for the next decade. A LOT of people are going to be really cautious about who they hire or work with after this - not only for insurance or litigation reasons but also for your own career sake.....

    And it means film quality will go to even more shit. Why take a big risk with an adult theme when you have a sure bet with some shit superhero product or a CGI kiddy film?

    John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised.
     
    Wayne's career seems to have started to flourish during World War II, in which he was a little too old to serve. His wooden acting did him no harm in roles as a typical stolid everyman American hero, and no doubt many male audience members identified with him. In real life he was something of an intellectual, spoke Spanish fluently, and was a heavy drinker and smoker. Probably, like George W. Bush his slow drawl was an affectation to hide his real self, but it worked for him.

    The only Wayne movie I ever remember watching was The Quiet Man, a 1952 Technicolor movie some of which was shot on location in Ireland in which Wayne who was now 45 and looking every day of it and more, played an ex-boxer who had killed a man in the ring and quit boxing who fell in love with an Irish colleen, but was supposed to fight for her dowry. Needless to say the entire second half of the movie is a prolonged bare knuckles fight scene and Wayne got the girl.

    I did not care greatly for the movie, but John Ford did win the Oscar for Best Director for it, so what do I know?

John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised. Little Al gets to overact a lot but so did Wayne.
     
    Wayne did not have a ton of range as an actor, but he definitely had a lot of depth. Red River and The Searchers are incredibly dark performances.

    Quite frankly, he's attacked because of his politics and his genre. He was very anti-left, anti-commie guy and was vocal about it. And his genre was beloved by white Christian straight males, which spoke to them.

    You'll note that as SJWs in Hollywood have degraded the money-making Western to the point now that we're lucky if there's one Western picture per year, and those are either boring or remakes or "revisionist" or all three, and there isn't a single Western TV series. They did that on purpose---the Western was too heroic and rallying for the descendants of Pioneer Americans

    Al Pacino can not do comedy, nor can he play non-criminals very well. He has had almost all of his success playing Italian gangsters. John Wayne hardly ever played any other type than an assertive and authoritative Western man of action. Wayne was always mocked for his acting limitations whereas Pacino is praised. Little Al gets to overact a lot but so did Wayne.
     
    Wayne did not have a ton of range as an actor, but he definitely had a lot of depth. Red River and The Searchers are incredibly dark performances.

    Quite frankly, he's attacked because of his politics and his genre. He was very anti-left, anti-commie guy and was vocal about it. And his genre was beloved by white Christian straight males, which spoke to them.

    You'll note that as SJWs in Hollywood have degraded the money-making Western to the point now that we're lucky if there's one Western picture per year, and those are either boring or remakes or "revisionist" or all three, and there isn't a single Western TV series. They did that on purpose---the Western was too heroic and rallying for the descendants of Pioneer Americans

    Replies: @Truth, @Pat Boyle, @ScarletNumber, @SteveRogers42

    I agree with you about Wayne. I have tried very hard to see every film he ever made after Stagecoach. But I think the Western especially the TV Western just got to be too formulaic. There are still wonderful Westerns made. “Open Range” was particularly good and “Tombstone” is very nearly a cult. These movies are every bit as good as “Shane” or “The Searchers”.

    I don’t worry too much about the lost episodes of “Sugarfoot”.

    Sure, if you're a moral zombie or aesthetic idiot... WITH THE EXCEPTION OF RESERVOIR DOGS, which really is great.

    PULP FICTION displays lots of talent but in the service of what? Nihilism and ugliness. It made me sick to my stomach that audience were guffawing to all the vileness. I don't deny the talent but what ugliness.

    JACKIE BROWN was more of PULP FICTION though I will admit I only saw the second half by accident at my friend's house cuz he had cable. I thought the core plot with Greer and the white guy was pretty sound but the side stories had the same ugly inhumanity.

    As for KILL BILL 1 & 2, those were just bad without anything to recommend them. I was appalled that so many critics fell for them.

    INGLORIOUS had one inspired scene, the burning screen at the end. That was Grand Guignol at its best. But it was overlong and about as fun as spending an entire afternoon with those basement homo-redneck freaks in PULP.

    I didn't see DJANGO and HATEFUL EIGHT, but I gave up on Tarantino long ago.

    Usually, directors become too full of themselves after a string of hits. Like Fellini after 8 1/2 and Bertolucci after LAST TANGO. But Tarantino grew overripe almost right away after RESERVOIR.

    I agree. Pulp Fiction was a well-made movie but it was ultimately just an exercise in stylish hipster nihlism. It was - as you rightly say about Tarantino himself - vile. Natural Born Killers, which Tarantino wrote, was much the same. I suppose that Oliver Stone tried to impose some kind of moral framework on it, but that didn't stop it from also being a celebration of nihlism. I saw both in the theater when they came out. I would never watch either again. Nor have I ever watched another Tarantino movie since.

    I'm actually not that big a fan of Mr. Weinstein or smug Hollywood types -- Jewish or otherwise BUT I know a witchhunt when I see 1 and I don't like social media or dogpiles and this checks off all those boxes of disgust for me.

    I wouldn't be shocked if McGowan signed a NDA when she took the money and frankly I hope she gets sued. Same with Miramax or WC or whoever the hell fired Harvey.

    In fact I'll say it -- I don't like Weinstein, or his fat ass brother -- but I like moral status signaling from attractive women on social media just to "reputation destroy" and to get attention points even less.

    Rose McGowan could get 90% of heterosexual men into her bed right now -- even without fame or money. Even at her current age in her 40s if she asked me for action the answer would be yes. So if she already has that going for her -- why the need to keep going?

    You know -- its called "over reach" and this is what it is. A few years back Pat Buchanan did a good piece about Hollywood and how its one of the last places where working class blue collar people -- often unionized -- can find decent employment. Make up artists, prop designers, set assistants, like 2 of my friends -- they work as extras in movies and tv shows, etc.

    These are just plain boring working people.

    And if Harvey goes -- for all his faults the man works his ass off and has put out quite a bit of quality product along with all the terrible schlock. But where does it stop? These Twitterati feminazis probably think they'll be put on some kinda mantle in charge of the studios but think again. It'll just put ordinary people out of business. Secretaries, assistants, prop makers, sound tech, whatever you name it....

    Meanwhile a few connected LA/NYC/Bay Area(where else would they be from besides maybe Chicago) lawyers, Jewish or otherwise will get some kind of fat check payout and a few actresses will get a payout -- probably in the 5 -6 figures -- hardly that big.

    All so a couple of aging harpies and to use Whiskey's word "sluts" can get Pokemon Points and attention as they circle the drain of their 50s and middle aged forced retirement.

    It'll just mean those jobs will go away and foreign countries will gain a larger market share in the Chinese and foreign entertainment/movie market.

    Say what you will -- its competitive and I imagine the casting couch in places like India(Bollywood), China, etc is probably a lot more heinous than it is here. Most of these models slash actresses go into a private hotel room knowing what they have to do in order to get their roles. They have to provide Weinstein or some other fat white and/or Jewish guy with oral sex or a massage or shower time blah blah so forth. Its how its been for 100 years and its "just how it is."

    I imagine its far far worse in foreign countries....

    These people just want attention and while Harvey is an asshole -- you kinda have to be to make a living much less be successful in a place like Hollywood or the entertainment BUSINESS that increasingly is reliant on that foreign revenue/income.

    A lot of people like to cite Hollywood and Silicon Valley as making California's economy very unique and that's true -- which means the state of California and in return our own economy will only suffer as a result.....

    The sharks are circling the bleeding carcass, the vultures circle the dying cow, however you wanna put it.

    But no one will gain anything from this besides the Twitterati types a little bit of desperate attention and a few shyster lawyers a bunch of money because as we all know at the end of the day its the lawyers and the various other parasites who collect fees who make the big bucks in scenarios like this while the idiot victims may collect a decent salary. But for McGowan 1) she won't make that much money off any legal payouts, assuming she doesn't get sued to hell and back for violating her NDA & 2) not only McGowan but what producer and especially male producer will want to work with these women again?

    While some producers may not make casting couch sessions mandatory -- if the actress/model initiates I doubt a lot of them will say no. Coming out like this in such a public way is going to paint a film of radioactive green slime all over these women. No sane producer will work with them again unless they're gay and/or have a death wish.

    Think about it -- if you're a producer -- would you ever work with any of these actresses again? Call it what you will - Weinstein's company was one of the most successful in the whole entire industry.

    If the lawyers eat it -- what sane producer much less company will take a risk EVER again WITH ANY OF THESE actresses? Not a single one. Would you risk your company or shareholders' assets and/or your own career just to cast some uppity over the hill broad seeking desperate attention?

    I sure as hell wouldn't.

    Hell the industry is moving toward kiddy fluff anyway with CGI, etc.

    "The Accountant" about a year ago was the last adult male oriented film I saw that was even halfway worth watching.....

    The industry is truly going Chinese/international -- and 1 thing international audiences don't want or need is/are over priced and over entitled has been starlets desperate for a "re break in".....

    Hate to say it -- but this could put a HUGE freeze on Hollywood for the next decade. A LOT of people are going to be really cautious about who they hire or work with after this - not only for insurance or litigation reasons but also for your own career sake.....

    And it means film quality will go to even more shit. Why take a big risk with an adult theme when you have a sure bet with some shit superhero product or a CGI kiddy film?

    I know Weinstein is trying to avert blame, but is there something to his stuff about the 60s factor? Is there a generational culture war in Hollywood? Is the younger generation more sensitive about sexual abuse or harassment issues? Is it due to rise of female power in Hollywood? Or did Hollywood become so politicized over the yrs that its hypocrisies have become easier to expose? Is there a younger generation of Jews who are rebelling against Jewish abuses like the younger generation of wasps rebelled against their parents in the 60s?

    I dunno. Personally, I grew up watching the Billy-Madisonization of Jewish Culture. Some Jewish kids were into intellectual stuff, but most were into either money or hedonism, the Risky-Business outlook. Unlike previous generations whose themes were struggle, overcoming obstacles, family, identity, cultural neurosis, the Jews I knew were well-adjusted socially and only cared about sex, fun, pleasure, and never-growing-up. Many were into Peter Pan complex and a whole bunch decided never to get married cuz it'd get in the way of screwing around and enjoying the nightlife. So many had a mindset like Robert Downey Jr. It's no wonder that the #1 cause of Jews of my generation became homo this, homo that. Jordan Belfort was sign of things to come. Signs were there with Philip Roth's notorious book, but there was an element of shame, doubt, anxiety. But then, Jewish attitudes became utterly shameless, and we ended up with the Weiner Spectacle. To some of the Jewish kids I grew up with, Adam Sander was to them what Dylan and Hoffman had been to boomer generation of Jews. A folk hero.
    Of course, most of them didn't go crazy with excess but the main theme was just having fun and getting along... the very reason why the Allen character is upset with the young Jewish guy in ANYTHING ELSE. He should be happy since the younger guy seems to be well-adjusted but that's exactly what upsets Allen's character for whom anxiety and paranoia are intrinsic elements of modern Jewish identity.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abeGU_SENAs

    Given that the younger generations of Jews had it so good or came to be totally accepted into the American mainstream, one would think Jewish animus would decline... but in some ways, it's gotten even worse since the 90s. Why? Why would Jews act so bitter now that they are accepted into every institution and praised from all quarters? And why would young Jewish kids who grew up with privilege and fun be so bitter and angry? I didn't see such emotions among them when growing up.

    Is it delayed outburst of pentup emotions? Were Jews holding in all their rage in the past out of fear or trepidation? Don't rock the boat and all that. But finally all their pent-up frustrations are pouring out? This might be understandable among older generation of Jews or even Boomer Jews. But why so much of this vitriol among Gen X Jews who didn't face the obstacles and snubs earlier generation of Jews did? Did they inherit this attitude from their parents? Is it just a natural part of Jewish personality that is now totally off the leash?

    Paradoxically, did Jewish Ascent lead to even more paranoia? When Jews were on the climb, they were envied or admired for their success, but they were not king of the hill. But now that they are king of the hill, they may be even more anxiety-ridden since they are a minority elite, a precarious position to hold. An elite that rules over people of same race is like the head controlling its own body. But a minority elite ruling over a majority composed of different people is like the dwarf in MAD MAX THUNDERDOME controlling the body of a big guy. It's an unsure proposition with no guarantee that the other will always obey. In the past, Jews used to call Nazis 'nazis'. Now, any sign of white identity is 'nazi' because Jewish Power depends on whites serving Jewish than white interests. We live in a nation where a Jew who extols his own identity and tribe is hailed to high heaven and showered with prizes and where a white person who defends his identity and race is denounced, called a 'nazi', and blacklisted from any work. So, we are supposed to confirm the blood-and-soil rights of Israel but hell with Orban and Hungarians for insisting Hungary is theirs.

    Also, the king-of-the-hill nature of power politics means that Jews are vulnerable as the new King of the Hill. The rule of the game is everyone tries to topple the king of the hill. When wasps were king of the hill, Jews could easily ally with other groups to bring down the wasp king. But now that they are the king, they fear everyone will pull them down. So, even as Jews are the king, they must keep the crown on the head of the wasps and 'white power'. So, whites are called 'white supremacist' even though most of the supremacist power in Hollywood, Wall Street, Ivy Leagues, Las Vegas, Silicon Valley, and Deep State are held by Jews than whites.

    Diversity makes for strange anxieties. Jewish experience in America has been to see Wasps as their main enemy while at the same time seeing them as their main saviors. After all, Jewish success was possible ONLY BECAUSE of the Anglo-American model of meritocracy, rule of law, and property rights. Though Anglos didn't practice this fairly at all times, they did so more than any other group. Indeed, Jews wanted to get away from 'greaseballs', 'Russkies', 'Polacks', Magyars, and etc in the Old World. They wanted to come to the US precisely because they heard it was freer and committed to rule of law, esp compared to Latin America ruled by a bunch of Gomezers. Gandhi also knew this contradiction about Anglos. Sure, they were hypocritical bloody buggers, but they did practice a kind of meritocracy and were sincere in their pride of integrity and principles. So, if the contradictions were pointed out, Anglos felt compelled to do something about it.

    Yet, there were barriers to the Wasp castle, and Jews had to make common cause with peoples they hated in the Old World: all the lowlife white ethnic groups who were far more tribal, clannish, corrupt, and unprincipled than Wasps. So, Jews were doing two things at once. They were running from the ethnics(and scary blacks) toward the Wasps(as saviors) AND leading the ethnic-black army against the Wasps(as enemies). And this dichotomy exists to this day. When Jews want protection, they don't go to blacks, browns, yellows, or Muslims. They run to whites, esp Wasps, and plead/demand 'protect us, save us, fight for us, champion us.' But at the same time, Jews rally non-whites to denounce 'white privilege'.

    Jews see the Wasp straight man as both a pillar to lean on and an idol to pull down. But can Jewish power continue without the white straight man? It's like respectable bourgeois culture served as the straight man to modernism. Even as modernism mocked and subverted the bourgeosie, modernism couldn't have done without it. It was the pillar that served as backbone to anarchic modernist energies and etc. It's like Catherine in JULES AND JIM can play her experimental games with life because she can always lean on the reliable Jules. It's like Marx Brothers comedy would fall apart without the straight man or woman to play against.

    Paradoxically, Jews became most screwy where they had the most power surrounded by those who were deemed their allies: ethnics and blacks. You'd think NY Jews would be least nuts since Jews have so much money, security, and power in NY. And yet, their prominence made them real players, and this meant Jews had to jostle for influence with blacks, ethnics, Catholics, and etc(none of whom really liked Jews). And in schools, Jewish students would have stood out since they constituted a visible ethnic group. So, this made Jews more contentious with groups who were their official allies.

    In contrast, Jews who grew up with much less power in homogeneous gentile communities often grew up with less hostility to whites. Dylan could be a nasty character and did his Civil Rights thing, but he was never quite so blatantly anti-white or anti-American as some NY Jews. Same goes for the Coen Brothers and Spielberg, who for all their Liberalism, seem to really love Americana. As Dylan grew up mostly around a homogeneous community of Northern Europeans, he didn't have to jostle with so many nasty ethnics(esp greaseballs and dumb 'polacks' and etc) as NY Jews did. Because Jews had much less power in the Hibbing area, they just tried to fit in, and since the gentiles didn't feel threatened by Jews, they just tolerated them. So, when Jews were with their official enemies, the Wasps, they got along just fine. But when Jews were surrounded by their official allies, they never got along and grew bitter. But since they had to maintain the alliance, all their anger about 'schvartzes', 'dagos', 'polacks', Catholics, Irish, Puerto Ricans, and etc had to be suppressed and directed at... Rednecks in the South and Country Clubs in the North.

    That is a great scene in an otherwise routine movie(though pretty good for what it is). That’s Tarantino at his best when he had something like a soul. The scene is closer to RESERVOIR than the later movies. It has violence and depravity but also an admiring nod to professionalism. Walken has authority and style, an aura of mastery and experience. And Hopper as the father is an ex-cop. He’s seen a lot and knows the stakes involved. He knows he can’t escape death but can play it right so that he can die with dignity. He insults Walken but wins his respect in the game of wits and nerves. And finally, it’s nevertheless brutal and sad that he must die. It has comedy, irony, and tragedy. RESERVOIR had that blend. But starting with PULP, the tragic element was gone. Whenever someone got mauled or killed, it was just for stupid laughs.

    TRUE ROMANCE has another inspired scene with Gary Oldman as a whigro eating Chinese carryout.

    Roger Avary had a similar sensibility as Tarantino, same promise and same flaws. KILLING ZOE shows he can ride the waves and weave in and out of tight spots as a visualist. But such wallowing in mindlessness and for what end? To match empirical and measured Anglo temperament with hot passionate French temperament? What if George Washington and Danton were bank robbers?

    How many people realize that the scene involving the killing of the German offficer with the baseball bat in the movie Inglorious Basterds was based on real life events?

    A Jew by the name of Salomon Morel was deliberately appointed as a head of a concentration camp in post war Poland that held many German prisoners of war. Morel then used a baseball bat (or club) to kill more than a thousand, innocent, post war German prisoners by bashing them in the head with it. Jews were also deliberately appointed to head other post war German concentration camps and were often almost as cruel. Apparently part of the so called "Morgenthau Plan" was in fact implemented in these camps.

    Here is a heavily sanitized wikipedia article on Morel in which his exact murder methodology isn't mentioned.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salomon_Morel

    Movie director Tarantino must have been aware that this had happened because he included a strikingly similar scene in his movie script.

    I refused to see the movie Inglourious Basterd because I quickly realized from descriptions of its various scenes that it was nothing more than just more Jewish revenge porn which I absolutely refuse to subsidize.

    Morel died in a warm bed in Israel at an advanced age. Neither Morel or any of the other Jewish post war concentration camp commanders were ever prosecuted for their genocide.

    Similarly , the Jewish East German Stasi head Markus Wolfe was not only not prosecuted for his actions, which on several occasions apparently involved the killing of American agents, he was rumored to have been offered a job at Homeland Security in the US just before his death. I guess being Jewish gives a sort of immunity (Jew-munity) and means you never have to say your're sorry.

    Salomon Morel is considered a hero in present day Israel for is actions. Harvey Weinstein apparently also considers Morel a hero.

    Replies: @Mr. Anon

    From that same article:

    “In 1998, Poland requested that Morel be extradited for trial, but Israel refused.[4] A reply sent to the Polish Justice Ministry from the Israeli government said that Israel would not extradite Mr. Morel as the statute of limitations had expired on war crimes.[4]”

    I agree. Pulp Fiction was a well-made movie but it was ultimately just an exercise in stylish hipster nihlism. It was – as you rightly say about Tarantino himself – vile. Natural Born Killers, which Tarantino wrote, was much the same. I suppose that Oliver Stone tried to impose some kind of moral framework on it, but that didn’t stop it from also being a celebration of nihlism. I saw both in the theater when they came out. I would never watch either again. Nor have I ever watched another Tarantino movie since.

    Where does this number of hundreds of thousands come from?

    Carpet bombing of cities was a thing in WW-II, of irrigation dams holding back flood waters in Korea, and of swaths of jungle hiding small concentrations of guerrilla fighters in Vietnam, but where did such a thing take place against Iraq?

    Yes, drone strikes against wedding parties and such, but how does their scale amount to hundreds of thousands of deaths?

    Given the weapons, tactics, and yes, restrictive rules-of-engagement in Iraq, what is a reasonable apportionment between deaths of persons pointing weapons at our troops compared with non-combatants? Everyone was a "civilian" over there, but I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.

    This time around, our military pointedly did not publicize a "body count" for a variety of military, social and political reasons. Among other things, claims of enemy dead are often vastly overstated. I would believe a death toll among enemy combatants as perhaps some small multiple of American military losses, owing to our better treatment of the wounded, better weapons and better conditioning of our soldiers and Marines to shoot straight (https://www.amazon.com/Killing-Psychological-Cost-Learning-Society/dp/0316040932). And maybe double that number for the deaths of civilians in the line-of-fire?

    But our insurgent-fighter enemy were not complete and total incompetents, so I cannot believe we were inflicting casualties on them out of proportion to what they inflicted on us. Furthermore, a lot of the fighting was one group of Iraqis (Shia militias?) fighting Sunni Iraqis or like the proto-ISIS people (Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq-or-whoever) taking over a town and killing the people they didn't like. I won't accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.

    Replies: @JohnnyWalker123, @WJ

    The number comes from numerous studies, including the well-conducted Lancet study. In the Lancet study, respondents were asked to show death certificates, in order to prevent people from lying. The Lancet study calculated around 655,000 deaths in Iraq through June 2006. The Lancet study might’ve been a conservative estimate, as it avoided more dangerous areas and avoided war ravaged Fallujah. A more recent Physicians study suggested over 1 million deaths.

    As for who’s to “blame” for Iraq, the fact is this. Iraq was a stable country prior to the 2003 US invasion. After the invasion, over 1 million Iraqis are dead, with millions more injured, displaced, widowed, or orphaned. It was America that’s responsible for what happened in that country. Nobody forced America to invade Iraq (most of the world was anti-war). America did what it wanted to, now that country has been totally destroyed.

    “Mission Accomplished.”

    I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.

    If Iraq invaded America and American nationalists were gunned down, how’d you feel about that?
    If the Mexican army made an incursion into US territory (which happens sometimes) and anti-invasion militiamen were killed, would that be justified?

    I won’t accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.

    According to the Lancet study, 57% of known deaths were from coalition forces. So if we extrapolate that to the current numbers (650,000 dead in 2006, 1 million dead as of now), America has killed over half a million Iraqis. Who knows how many we’ve injured, displaced, orphaned, or widowed?

    By any reasonable standard, America committed genocide in Iraq.

    I have no opinion of my own on that. But I was intrigued because, in Shakespeare's time, the roles of female characters were played by men. Why? The reason usually given is that the idea of women working as actors was considered a form of prostitution.
  212. None of these women turned over their accusations to the criminal justice system.

    Instead they went to business associates of the accused or the press and said “he raped me.” Everyone is supposed to take their accusation as the honest truth. The guy’s boss is supposed to fire him. Does the employer hold a mini-trial with a right to be heard and attorneys on both sides or just execute the sentence after the woman complains?

    Maybe some of these women thought being sexually available was a good career move and later turned it into regret groping. Some girls have been known to hook up with popular jocks and later when it became clear he would not be a faithful companion decided it was assault. I think HW is not contesting these stories, but what do women want – the right to accuse someone of a crime with no participation of the criminal justice system, and the right to have the accused punished by business associates at their behest. It is the model of the SJW getting a politically incorrect person fired.

    I agree. Pulp Fiction was a well-made movie but it was ultimately just an exercise in stylish hipster nihlism. It was - as you rightly say about Tarantino himself - vile. Natural Born Killers, which Tarantino wrote, was much the same. I suppose that Oliver Stone tried to impose some kind of moral framework on it, but that didn't stop it from also being a celebration of nihlism. I saw both in the theater when they came out. I would never watch either again. Nor have I ever watched another Tarantino movie since.

    I'm actually not that big a fan of Mr. Weinstein or smug Hollywood types -- Jewish or otherwise BUT I know a witchhunt when I see 1 and I don't like social media or dogpiles and this checks off all those boxes of disgust for me.

    I wouldn't be shocked if McGowan signed a NDA when she took the money and frankly I hope she gets sued. Same with Miramax or WC or whoever the hell fired Harvey.

    In fact I'll say it -- I don't like Weinstein, or his fat ass brother -- but I like moral status signaling from attractive women on social media just to "reputation destroy" and to get attention points even less.

    Rose McGowan could get 90% of heterosexual men into her bed right now -- even without fame or money. Even at her current age in her 40s if she asked me for action the answer would be yes. So if she already has that going for her -- why the need to keep going?

    You know -- its called "over reach" and this is what it is. A few years back Pat Buchanan did a good piece about Hollywood and how its one of the last places where working class blue collar people -- often unionized -- can find decent employment. Make up artists, prop designers, set assistants, like 2 of my friends -- they work as extras in movies and tv shows, etc.

    These are just plain boring working people.

    And if Harvey goes -- for all his faults the man works his ass off and has put out quite a bit of quality product along with all the terrible schlock. But where does it stop? These Twitterati feminazis probably think they'll be put on some kinda mantle in charge of the studios but think again. It'll just put ordinary people out of business. Secretaries, assistants, prop makers, sound tech, whatever you name it....

    Meanwhile a few connected LA/NYC/Bay Area(where else would they be from besides maybe Chicago) lawyers, Jewish or otherwise will get some kind of fat check payout and a few actresses will get a payout -- probably in the 5 -6 figures -- hardly that big.

    All so a couple of aging harpies and to use Whiskey's word "sluts" can get Pokemon Points and attention as they circle the drain of their 50s and middle aged forced retirement.

    It'll just mean those jobs will go away and foreign countries will gain a larger market share in the Chinese and foreign entertainment/movie market.

    Say what you will -- its competitive and I imagine the casting couch in places like India(Bollywood), China, etc is probably a lot more heinous than it is here. Most of these models slash actresses go into a private hotel room knowing what they have to do in order to get their roles. They have to provide Weinstein or some other fat white and/or Jewish guy with oral sex or a massage or shower time blah blah so forth. Its how its been for 100 years and its "just how it is."

    I imagine its far far worse in foreign countries....

    These people just want attention and while Harvey is an asshole -- you kinda have to be to make a living much less be successful in a place like Hollywood or the entertainment BUSINESS that increasingly is reliant on that foreign revenue/income.

    A lot of people like to cite Hollywood and Silicon Valley as making California's economy very unique and that's true -- which means the state of California and in return our own economy will only suffer as a result.....

    The sharks are circling the bleeding carcass, the vultures circle the dying cow, however you wanna put it.

    But no one will gain anything from this besides the Twitterati types a little bit of desperate attention and a few shyster lawyers a bunch of money because as we all know at the end of the day its the lawyers and the various other parasites who collect fees who make the big bucks in scenarios like this while the idiot victims may collect a decent salary. But for McGowan 1) she won't make that much money off any legal payouts, assuming she doesn't get sued to hell and back for violating her NDA & 2) not only McGowan but what producer and especially male producer will want to work with these women again?

    While some producers may not make casting couch sessions mandatory -- if the actress/model initiates I doubt a lot of them will say no. Coming out like this in such a public way is going to paint a film of radioactive green slime all over these women. No sane producer will work with them again unless they're gay and/or have a death wish.

    Think about it -- if you're a producer -- would you ever work with any of these actresses again? Call it what you will - Weinstein's company was one of the most successful in the whole entire industry.

    If the lawyers eat it -- what sane producer much less company will take a risk EVER again WITH ANY OF THESE actresses? Not a single one. Would you risk your company or shareholders' assets and/or your own career just to cast some uppity over the hill broad seeking desperate attention?

    I sure as hell wouldn't.

    Hell the industry is moving toward kiddy fluff anyway with CGI, etc.

    "The Accountant" about a year ago was the last adult male oriented film I saw that was even halfway worth watching.....

    The industry is truly going Chinese/international -- and 1 thing international audiences don't want or need is/are over priced and over entitled has been starlets desperate for a "re break in".....

    Hate to say it -- but this could put a HUGE freeze on Hollywood for the next decade. A LOT of people are going to be really cautious about who they hire or work with after this - not only for insurance or litigation reasons but also for your own career sake.....

    And it means film quality will go to even more shit. Why take a big risk with an adult theme when you have a sure bet with some shit superhero product or a CGI kiddy film?

    Maybe but probably not in India. Actresses tend to be from established and respectable families and they want to be able to marry well– for which any hint of scandal is a devastating blow. At least, that’s how it used to be. Who knows now?

    What matters is what the public believes. The public, due to an intense marketing effort by Bush, saw the Iraq War as a Republican war. Which was beneficial to Reps in 2002 and 2004, but not 2006 or 2008. Americans don't know who voted for what before the Iraq War.

    Kerry voted for the war, but the public generally saw him as an anti-war candidate. That hurt him in 2004.

    The main factor in why the Iraq War wasn't investigated was that it'd implicate lots of powerful establishment people. Those people would in many cases be Republicans (not always though), but they'd all be powerful figures. Figures such as the Bush clan, Cheney, much of the military-industrial complex, and the intelligence services.

    This will trigger Whiskeys asp tingle points. Amber Tamblyn, who is married to that unfunny (to each their own) idiot David Cross recently set off a social media campaign to shame actor James Woods, who is a scumbag but still.....

    Story goes when she was 16 Woods hit on her and her friends at some diner in LA. Could be true but its funny it took til now to come out w the information and funny how she's apparently made Woods retire from showbiz.

    Noting Whiskeys observations about how women like Game of Thrones....its interesting Tamblyn used the phrase "the dethroning continues"....so the SJW youmg Twitterati sisterhood is making a power play against the patriarchy, or whatever.

    So if Weinstein, Woods & the rest of these Jewish power figures in Hollywood are being "dethroned"....then who is assuming the throne?

    Keep in mind for all their faults these old Jewish guys run an industry increasingly reliant and dependant as Whiskey and others have noted on foreign markets and in particular the Chinese market.

    Sure, Weinstein and Miramax may get eaten away by the lawyers and claimed rape victim's coming litigation but what about the industry & all those jobs?

    Note as Whiskey would the age (40+) of most of the accusors....almost all bitter and washed up has beens obsessively blowing up social media in long shot attempts to maximize the monetization of whats left of their fame & careers.

    None of this will helpsell our film industry exports overseas.

    Most of these old Hollywood types are scumbags but its usually a 2 way street and they usually sell themselves on the couch for that big break.

And every Hollywood "expose" book is about how everyone was screwing everyone one else for roles.

    Where does this number of hundreds of thousands come from?

    Carpet bombing of cities was a thing in WW-II, of irrigation dams holding back flood waters in Korea, and of swaths of jungle hiding small concentrations of guerrilla fighters in Vietnam, but where did such a thing take place against Iraq?

    Yes, drone strikes against wedding parties and such, but how does their scale amount to hundreds of thousands of deaths?

    Given the weapons, tactics, and yes, restrictive rules-of-engagement in Iraq, what is a reasonable apportionment between deaths of persons pointing weapons at our troops compared with non-combatants? Everyone was a "civilian" over there, but I have a hard time feeling shame, guilt and collective moral responsibility for the death of a person who discharged a weapon in the general direction of our military personnel.

    This time around, our military pointedly did not publicize a "body count" for a variety of military, social and political reasons. Among other things, claims of enemy dead are often vastly overstated. I would believe a death toll among enemy combatants as perhaps some small multiple of American military losses, owing to our better treatment of the wounded, better weapons and better conditioning of our soldiers and Marines to shoot straight (https://www.amazon.com/Killing-Psychological-Cost-Learning-Society/dp/0316040932). And maybe double that number for the deaths of civilians in the line-of-fire?

    But our insurgent-fighter enemy were not complete and total incompetents, so I cannot believe we were inflicting casualties on them out of proportion to what they inflicted on us. Furthermore, a lot of the fighting was one group of Iraqis (Shia militias?) fighting Sunni Iraqis or like the proto-ISIS people (Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq-or-whoever) taking over a town and killing the people they didn't like. I won't accept blame for Red-on-Red violence like the Cambodia narrative.

    The civilians killed as a result of the civil war would not have been dead had we not invaded. Numerous studies for years have calculated the massive number of Iraqi dead. It’s old news but then again you probably believe there Dubya Em Dees in Iraq also.
