I had always been torn about Chavez, there was enough waves to rock the Republic's shaky boat back then. tenuf, I thought. I became. an elementary teacher in Yuma, my classes mostostly Hispanic. On a lark, I mentioned Chavez: none of them knew who he was! None. He was born there, died here. I was astounded. Out came the text books. There are SCHOOLS on the border named after him, and most of the kids thought he was a BOXER. My hometown? South Philly, and I still know people who can't eat table grapes. So, I started. My opinion changed about him quickly - I don't care if the movie is an A+ or a D -. ANY information about Mr. Chavez is good information to the community. And that from an old White guy.
Boy meets girl---Boy meets airplane--Boy designs A6M5 Mitsubishi Zero Model 21 and Model 52--which swept the Pacific Theater at the start of the Second World War in the Japanese war of Conquest until the Grumman F-6 Hellcat blew the crap out the Zero. I wonderr if the sequel will show the other planes he designed for the Japanese military. Maybe the Germans will do a cute cartoon on Willi Messerschmidt or Ernst Heinkel.
I think I will skip this one and go watch an old episode of "Victory at Sea" and watch us shoot down the Zero.
I love Miyazaki films. I can't wait to see this.
Hey Ex-Arizonan, I fixed the image. Mix up on my part.
Okay...why is an article on Hayao Miyazaki accompanied by a completely unrelated picture of George Takei?
I really, really hope that someone was just asleep at the wheel and that the Weekly isn't delving into "they all look alike to me" territory. :P
Uhmmm no I'm sorry, Henry is handsome but not Christopher Reeve good looking. Christopher Reeve IS STILL BY FAR THE BEST LOOKING SUPERMAN THERE EVER WAS. Henry only had the body sure, but so did Reeve. In his time the men were not supposed to be super buffed but if you had Reeve now buffed up in that age and with his youth? Not even his toe nails can compare to Henry's face hahahah yes I'm a fan. I mean look, let's be real. God perfectly chiseled Reeve's nose, cheekbones and jaw that not even the great Michaelangelo can copy. That towering frame and , Oh my... I'm sorry, I can drown in those American blue eyes till the day I die...
Is it anything like Éire?
I give up. What's 'Eacute;ire' supposed to mean?
Don't be a "hater".
Somehow I don't think I would categorize a movie based on a book as insufferable as "Gone Girl" as an awards contender.
"I have read some fan chatter naysaying the relationship between Jane Foster and Thor, declaring that they have no real reason to be pining for each other. Here are a couple of good reasons: Thor is played by Chris Hemsworth, the most handsome man on earth, and the tremendously beautiful Natalie Portman plays Jane Foster! I, for one, see no further explanation for why these two would want to hook up, leaving behind their thrones and jobs to see each other naked. Makes sense to me."
Is this supposed to be sarcasm, or were you actually serious?
I'm not a Natalie Portman fan myself (I don't think she's anything too special in either looks or talent), but even I can see that she's wasted in her role as Jane Foster. Jane is so boring, and I find that Thor and Jane have horrible (as in, none at all) chemistry. Every time they have a 'romantic' scene together, it just reads so false, and it is just awkward to watch. I end up diverting my gaze from the screen because lack any passion between them. I just don't buy it.
Just because Chris and Natalie are "most handsome and tremendously beautiful" doesn't mean that they have any reason to pine for each other. Jane, I can totally believe her being attracted to Thor - the man is like 150% muscle, tall and blond and an immortal godly being. Thor is, ideally, the image of a perfect man. Plus, we don't really see any actual competition for Jane (not including Chris O'Dowd, because that was too brief and not taken seriously enough). It's just him. However, when you know that in the comics Thor ends up with Sif, who is Thor's theoretical perfect match, due to her also being an amazingly skilled fighter, immortal and of goddess status, it's hard to realistically take Thor's affections for Jane too seriously. I see the obvious flaws with this relationship, plus the lack of chemistry between the actors themselves, and it just...falls flat.
That's just me, though. I don't expect anyone else to think the same. If you really think that they make sense, then, kudos to you I guess.
Wolf might possible get the academy award for "Most Acting".
This reviewer/critic needs to find another line of work.
Celebrity and wealth and honor gained through cheating and lying and threatening have no good rewards, not to mention lawsuits: sued by sponsors, sued by insurance/promotion companies, sued by the US Govt. Lance, Lance, your name is mud on all the continents - slimy mud at that.
Sigh. My brothers really looked up to Lance when he was riding (before the scandal broke loose). My stepdad was a professional cyclist and my mother rode as well. He used to train on the Northeast side of Tucson where we all grew up. I clearly remember driving in our family's suburban down Old Soliders Trail and there he was...Lance Armstrong...
My brothers screamed outside the window to him, "Lance! Lance!"" and he held up his hand and gave my brothers (at that time age 10 and 13) a peace sign gesture. They were talking about it for weeks. It is a sad thing to think about a family such as ours, investing support on a athletic figure such as Lance Armstrong. We were on his side for a long time. Now, the latest comment came from my now 29 year old brother in regards to Lance, "What a jackass." Guess that peace sign wasn't quite enough.
I always thought Armstrong was creepy. I guess I don't need to see this movie.
Lived in the Morris Hotel on second across from the Basque restaurant one broke winter when lucky enough to afford it.The Reno low life lifestyle had it's good points. I had gotten back on my feet by the Tyson fight and bet on Tyson...think it was like 9 to 1. Lost a grand
Looking forward to catching this movie.
I totally agree. When you sit down in an armchair before screening, rest your elbows on arm rests and the lights get dimmed, what you expect to happen is getting blasted into your seat. Well, nothing like that happens throughout the movie. Plus, the portrayal of Lauda is so overdramatic that it borders on ridicule. There might be a few good sequences but on the whole the movie fails to make you care. And this is what moving pictures are all about.
