  1. I guess David Drier will do what all closeted gay Republican politicians who help draft anti-gay legislation do once they leave office: come out.

  2. So the National Organization of Theater Owners sides with the bullies.

    I cannot find their members list, but the non-members list is probably shorter and easier, so let's have that. I will not patronize theaters that throw their support behind bullies.

    The MPAA has had a long history of bullying, particularly against gay-interest films and audiences. But to bully kids? It's gone too far this time.

    It's time for the censorious monopolies of MPAA and NATO to end.

  3. the MPAA ratings board is preposterous, and everyone should see the doc "this film is not yet rated"

    violence? a-ok. women giving oral sex? a-ok.
    male nudity? a woman receiving oral sex? THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!!!!

    it's ridiculous. from the film Whale Rider nearly getting an R-rating (due to a marijuana pipe in the background of one scene) to the Breakfast Club getting an R because of "adult situations" that every damned teen knows's just stupid.

    a group of imbeciles who sit around deciding what will harm society and what won't from an archaic mindset.

    context means nothing to these plebes. a film about bullying, an important documentary, and they're doing all they can to make sure the people who need to see it CAN'T see it.

  4. What, what? Star Trek ... 2?


    Star Trek II is The Wrath of Khan, the only Star Trek movie anyone cared about for a long time.

    This sequel will be Star Trek 12, whatever universe it is set in.

    If they have any sense for their Trekker fan base, they will have already stopped calling it Star Trek 2.

  5. I think Newt was laughing at the lady because he knew that Obsession was by Calvin Klein and not Elizabeth Taylor!

  6. I think last week's episode of GLEE was one of the best yet. They've packed a lot of story into a short amount of time and shared a lot of messages that today's youth need to hear. So glad the Trevor Project got a little publicity, too.
