Gaiman responded to the petition on Twitter, writing: “I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled. Says it all really. This is so beautiful … Promise me you won’t tell them?”
Trevor Noah’s theme was that Trump’s speech was exactly identical to his 2016 speeches
Colbert noted the same thing, but his most hilarious take was when he made fun of Trump’s brags about crowd size. (Contrary to what you might have heard, there was zero overflow, there were empty seats inside, and Colbert’s staffers were able to buy tickets at the last minute after their press credentials were denied.)
More important to us than his artistic accomplishments, he introduced many to Olivia Hussey’s chest. Oh, yeah, and to some guy named Shakespeare. That was Z’s real triumph, I suppose. His Romeo and Juliet brought a lot of young people to the theater to watch something written by Billy Shakespeare, the ol’ Bard himself.
This reminds me of the time I challenged Richard Sanders (Les Nessman on WKRP) to a UFC fight. Why do you think nobody has seen him the last decade? I kicked his buckeye-award-winning ass so bad he won’t come out in public.
I have no problem with these, but it seems to be an error of omission when you introduce this topic without making Groundhog Day one of the choices.
Groundhog Day is deep. Bill Murray’s character doesn’t get it right the first time, or perhaps for years. He does what any human would do in the situation. Early on, he uses his knowledge of that day to play God. Then, he uses it to have fun and get women. Then, he is filled with despair and tries to end it with his own death. Then, after trying every crass and immature thing he can think of, he finally realizes that he can actually enjoy his fate if he is reliving a great day, so he makes it so. He makes himself a better person, but the transformation happens only after many missteps. Exactly what would happen to anybody really caught in the situation.
And how many screwball comedies do you know in which the lead character quotes Chekhov and recites French poetry?
If you read this page regularly, you know that the hero of this film, Dalton (Patrick Swayze), is a philosopher-bouncer upon whose teaching I have based my life.
To quote the greatest philosopher-pornographer-critic in history, “Roadhouse is a cinema classic and one of the most entertaining movies ever made. It is the White Trash Hamlet; the Redneck Romeo and Juliet; Macbeth with a Mullet; Timon of Athens, Georgia. I doubt whether making a great comedy was the original intention, but as gamblers say, ‘The cards speak for themselves.'”
Just about nobody has seen this film in years. It was almost as if it had never existed. Although it is nearly 30 years old, it has only 108 votes on IMDb, and only four external reviews, all from minor sources, all written in the past month, following release of a new Blu-Ray. Here is an excellent commentary about the the film and the new Blu-Ray release.
At any rate, we now know why there seems to be a 20-year nudity gap in Melissa’s career from 1985 to 2005. There wasn’t any gap after all. It turns out that she was getting naked, but nobody saw it!
Following the jump is a summary of the film from IMDb, if you are interested. (Total spoilers)
Although I guess saloon singing could have been fatal if you stole a prime gig from Sinatra.
“Last November Arquette was hospitalized after suffering an infection when his neck was slashed by a glass tube in an extreme exhibition match against Nick Gage. The 47-year-old admits that the ‘scary’ injury came just centimeters from his main artery and could have been his last moment on earth.”
