Re: Web of Sex Scandals

He was exonerated in court long ago on charges brought by Mia Farrow who many believe put the notion of her then 7-year-old daughter Dylan's being molested by him in her head. The prosecutor declined to prosecute because he felt he couldn't get a conviction (which is often the case for sexual assau...

Think Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club in the scene when Rayon dresses up in a suit and slicked back hair to go ask her dad for money.

Re: The Post reviews

God, this movie was boring. For a fun drinking game, take a shot every time someone is looking down at a piece of paper with wide, dramatic, Stanislavski-acting eyes. You’ll need an IV. It felt like, “We’re gonna take a little All the President’s Men and mix in some Spotlight and, oh, let’s sprinkle...

Re: Nominations Announcement

Yes, it is, Franz.

Did they announce last year’s acting nominees alphabetically?

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

There's one part of the story that keeps jumping out at me. It's where she says he ordered white wine. She prefers red, but he ordered white. Which makes it seem like she had no control over the course of the evening at all... Then order your own wine. It wasn’t white wine that he had ordered. He h...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

The girl herself identified the encounter as a sexual assault in the original “reporting” (if you can even call it that). For the record, I don’t think this qualifies as an assault, but I’m not pulling the term out of my ass. I think the whole roll-out of this story has been handled really poorly. A...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

But Aziz is being accused of sexual assault. In the original Babe.net article (WTF is that website?) “Grace” (who has now been identified as a hipster millennial living in Brooklyn named Abby Nierman) states that eventually through “processing” the episode and talking with friends, that what she bel...

Agreed, dws. It’s a #MeToo by way of “The Crucible.”

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

Speaking of great dancing, Walken should have been nominated in support for Pennies from Heaven.

Rockwell had some fun, cute dance moves during his SNL opening monologue last night.

Re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri reviews

I can't see how anyone doesn't see Dixon as a closet case. I thought this was fairly obvious. Well, it might be hinted at (I certainly thought it about Dixon while I watched the film) but I’m not sure I would call it fairly obvious. Like this Stuhlbarg debate, it seems like you could make an argume...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

I think the only hard facts of a backstory we get of Oliver are two: he felt like the only Jewish guy in his New England town while growing up and he saw the Psychedelic Furs once in concert. I’m not one who needs to have every single question answered or an elaborate backstory all the time. But, ye...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

Because we can talk about other things here besides who gave the best male lead performance in 1950. The story of Natalie’s rape first appeared in Suzanne Finstad’s biography in 2001 (and, frankly, I’ve been hearing about it for close to fifteen years on DataLounge, a gay discussion board I frequent...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

Natalie Wood was apparently raped so violently that she had to be hospitalized because of excessive bleeding.

Lana Wood will reveal all when Kirk Douglas finally expires. And we will be re-visiting the subject (probably in this thread).
