Belarus: Russia with milk.
I found the movie to be deeply disturbing. And while I realise that Lou is supposed to creep me the hell out, the fact that I so thoroughly disliked the protagonist made it difficult to sit through the first two-thirds. I won’t lie, the car chase scene was one of the most exhilarating I’ve ever seen - I wouldn’t expect less from the guy that wrote the Bourne movies. But the rest of the film was so creepy, I couldn’t get into it.
I disagree about Shae’s betrayal feeling abrupt. I thought the show had clearly established how much she loved Tyrion, and how hurt she was at being sent away so horribly. We also know that she’s headstrong and quick to attack. So it makes perfect sense to me that she would flip on Tyrion and betray him at the trial. The sleeping with Tywin bit…well, she IS still a prostitute.
#24 *neighbourhood ‘Cause we Torontonians use the same spelling as the rest of Canada.
I don’t think he’s attempting to be neutral in the slightest. Quite the opposite, in fact - his whole purpose for writing the article is to defend Woody Allen. I think it’s an important article because it’s representing a side of the story that no one else is volunteering. There’s a lot of information in there that websites (like Buzzfeed) are choosing to ignore. No wonder everyone’s leaping to condemn him when we’re only hearing one person’s side. Look, I’m not saying he’s guilty, I’m not saying he’s innocent. All I’m saying is none of us know the truth. And it’s unfortunate that someone can be vilified by the court of public opinion.
Before such damning opinions are formed, everyone should read this article as a counterpoint: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/01/27/the-woody-allen-allegations-not-so-fast.html At the very least, it proves that we don’t know what actually happened, and we probably never will. All we know for sure is that Buzzfeed is not an actual news source, and shouldn’t be treated as one.
Oh, hi Malcom.
Yup. Not only is the article’s title wrong, the bit about this being the third tallest in the world is also wrong. Buzzfeed fails.
#17 These are called Smarties in America? Weird. In Canada, they’re Rockets. And since they’re originally from Toronto, I’d say our name is the right one. :) Plus, Smarties are a whole different candy here. Not sure what their American parallel would be…
Tip to all: Don’t read the first couple chapters, then say to yourself, “Now that I know the basic premise, wouldn’t it be cool to go back and watch that teaser trailer?” I’m pretty sure I just spoiled the book for myself. Sigh.
#16’s our bad, no doubt. But in our defense, we don’t like Harper that much, either.
I’m surprised Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer isn’t on the list. Hands down, the most disturbing movie I’ve ever seen.
#9 is adorable…but it’s not a Durrell’s vontsira. It’s a mongoose. Still cute, though!
While I agree with the sentiment of the article, it doesn’t do wonders for your case when you refer to Tony Harris as a writer.
