Great movie,all the Tarantino usual violence but a plot + comedy.Well worth a watch.
This Movie is the best of 2013!! Absolutely hysterical!
If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!
I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.
This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.
Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol
What a fantastic movie! Great story and great cast.
Fantastic, whimsical, dreamlike
Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.
John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.
This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.
I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.
This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste
Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.
Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.
When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.
The first comment tries the deflection game. Ignore the issue and praise Glenn while ignoring his repeated lies and deception on the issue at hand. Even Glenn's belated admission is self serving and lacking in total honesty. He would have us believe he ended up in a judge's chamber with his mom with no prior contact with law enforcement. He savages his father just like he savaged his step brother in one of his earlier lies. Remember the charges were also dropped with his father. He keeps digging a deeper hole for himself
I though his statement said the charges were dropped immediately , 2 months is not immediately. And I think if I assaulted my father and was charged I would remember lol Keep digging that hole .
Curious, Sen. Michael Bennet has had nothing to do with our reporting on this incident. We simply looked up Glenn's record and then dug deeper.
Rather than commiserate about the local job market, HazyHurts, come up with a solution.
Create jobs by diversifying the economic engine. The problem isn't Drake is downtown but that there are no factories that build anything heavy. Pueblo has the wind factory, the steel mill, and other industry. Colorado Springs hasn't bent steel for anything in eons.
This city has the ability to be an industrial engine, but nobody wants to pull the trigger. Why? It isn't the physical or economic climate, so it must be the religion and the government.
That's where the fixes need to be made.
Christina Krych: Inter-city expresses, or interurban commuter lines as they are known in America, are not only a dying breed (there's only one left, the Chicago, South Shore, and South Bend Railroad), but they continually lose money and are subsidized by tax dollars on top of the tickets. The other problem with them is once you hit a station and get off, then what? Colorado, like most of the west, doesn't address that very well. The experimental bullet train in California is a huge boondoggle that goes nowhere.
