Re: “Movie Review: The Irishman

Casino & Goodfellas (Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family) were both from books written by Nicholas Pileggi. I believe Pileggi and Scorsese shared screen writing credits on both films.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Miller Gets His White On

Hey Ricardo, I agree with you most of the time but not on this topic. Let me remind you what happened to the former owner of Roses & More back when he came out against the Iraq War (and he was right, too). He eventually lost his business. I'm a small businessman that could suffer a similar fate with customers that don't share my political point of view. Years ago in the wild west days of being able to post anonymously on The Star we often had 100-150 comments PER ARTICLE daily. Once they required FB sign-in...it all but dried up.

The day I lose my anonymity here is the day I stop posting.

Re: “Where Democrats Are Heading In K-12 Education Policy

Obama initially supported civil unions (not marriage per se) for gays/lesbians...that's no secret. His opinion changed over time just as I have changed my mind on many issues over the past decades with added experience, knowledge & maturity.

Re: “Crowning Around

Grimm admits to never seeing the series so that gives him zero context for a knowledgeable review.

Downton Abbey's debut in the US was $31 million and the #1 film that weekend exceeding expectations while additionally earning over $100 million worldwide by the end of September. The movie is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with an 84% Critical score and a 95% Audience score. Downton Abbey scored the highest opening ever in Focus Features' history.
The Downton Abbey movie was a huge success precisely because it was geared for fans of the series (an older demographic) and wasn't made to appeal to a general audience.

If they make another sequel, The Weekly shouldn't send a boy to do a man's job to review.

Re: “Animals at play

I was recently at the zoo and I'm here to tell you those squirrel monkeys are just too damn cute!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Extreme Supremes

It has been written, "Elections have consequences". Yes, they do. We see the results of having the worst president in history "leading" this country right down a sewer hole. You can't seriously believe Clinton would've been worse than the cheeto. Sometimes one needs to bite the bullet and do the necessary thing. Yet like petulant children you're going to "show us" and piss away your vote while the country circles the drain.

Riddle: What is the difference between a tRump voter and a Stein voter?
Answer: Not a damn thing.
