"This Russian investigation is a total FAKE NEWS hoax witch hunt that Barack Obama did absolutely nothing to warn the American people about. ?Enjoy! ?#vindicated"

now Obama is guilty of collusion/obstruction or something. as with everything Trump says, it's all (purposefully?) vague.

I tryyyy not to get my head caught in stuff like this, the stuff that is obviously bullshit. like, there is a big vote on healthcare coming up and that is dire stuff, stuff that can impact my life, my family's life, my friends' lives, etc. but maybe I need to remind myself how bizarre this kind of behavior is and that's it isn't worth shrugging off as "Trump being Trump" whether he's senile or petulant or doing the Roy Cohn schtick, whether he knows this stuff is crap or not or knows that we know this stuff is crap. whether or not Trump is himself guilty of collusion/obstruction himself. etc etc etc

I'd rather be thinking of literally anything else than what Trump. but even if all this is ultimately just a distraction from this, that's still worthy of attention, yeah? I mean, who the fuck does that (besides Trump)

at least I have a place to vent in private

more importantly, I'd like to think a President Romney would have mitigated the Obama-backlash that gave us President Trump.

(not that I think Obama deserved such backlash but you know.....)

that and standing up to Russia.

for better or for worse, one could always count on the GOP to be the party of national security. and now it's like, I don't know what to believe anymore.

maybe we all should have voted for Romney

Evan SolomonWhen is Gus Van Sant getting his Star Wars movie?

Maybe they can rope a fresh off Twin Peaks David Lynch

I know you're kidding, but they've tried before.

1. If Kasdan wants to go full-fundamentalist about his script, why doesn't he direct it? It's not like he hasn't done action before.

if the Eastwood rule applies here, I'm guessing that.

my fingers are crossed that he is just taking a sabbatical and telling everyone that he is retiring is the best way to prevent others from asking him when he plans to do another movie.

either way, as long as he making the best decision for DDL.

kinda reopens the wound to know she was still in the throes of addiction right before she died. :(

Oxnard MontalvoI'm not too too bothered when white male directors overwhelmingly make movies starring white men. if those are the stories they feel they are best able to tell, then they should tell them as they see fit.

what does bother me is when female and POC filmmakers are marginalized, people who may be able to add those gender and ethnic perspectives. so diversifying in front of the camera starts in diversifying behind the camera.

Agreed, but Matt Damon white-/manslapined it as so: "When you're talking about diversity you do it in the casting of the film, not in the casting of the show."

Or in a way that isn't so painfully white: "Diversity in Hollywood means simply casting them in roles but not giving them power behind the camera."

He ain't alone by any means, for all his shitty non-apology afterward was worth.

His esteem in my eyes has never been the same since...

yeah, I remember that.

but I still hold out hope that as long as these issues are being addressed, perspectives will shift. even for the Matt Damons among us.

The worst thing I would like to see happen to Trump is that he leaves office and goes back to his private life.

I do not condone the murder or attempted murder of government officials. (or anyone, really)

Janson JinnistanOliver Stone has said that he takes Putin's denials of interfering in US elections "at face value".

Because look at him.

I Googled "Vladimir Putin adorable" and was not disappointed

StuWonder Woman and the critical generation gap

that's not a bad point, we could use more diversity in the taste-makers and canon-izers. if indeed such diversity matters and it very well might.

Anyone who has seen McCain on TV has noticed he stands out among other Republicans as at least sometimes a willing critic of the president or just says what we ought to do even when it is not in line with something Trump said. ?That list reflects a great number of solid decisions. As much as I dislike Trump not every choice he makes is going to suck balls. Trump is not actually from Superman's Bizarro world where every choice he makes has to be the exact opposite of good.

no, not every decision is bad but plenty are bad enough imo.

mmm'yeah, one wonders what will have to happen for Congressional Republicans to say that Trump has "gone too far" and no longer feel he is worth the trouble.

also, as far as I know Filmstruck doesn't put out any lists of upcoming films although this thread does a good job of reporting new additions.

Robin McDonaldBecause that would be sad as I like John McCain. He's one of the few Republicans willing to express his offense
at Trump's obnoxiousness.

could have fooled me.
