Re: “2 Days in NY

I may be mistaken, but I believe Alexia may have been an exchange student at my high school (Sumner Academy, Kansas City, KS) 1990-91. Either that or it is a very common name. Nevertheless, I would love to track down the original movie before diving into the movie which is now set to record on my DVR.

Re: “Dirty Wars journalist Jeremy Scahill takes aim at U.S. secrecy

The US government is only continuing the longstanding practice of using force anywhere in the world that it perceives a threat to US interests. Sometimes these interests involve banana plantations; sometimes petroleum facilities and transport; sometimes the interest is the primacy of US influence and power in a region.

Americans are bigoted. We declaim that the rights enumerated in our Constitution and Bill of Rights are granted not by man but by god. Are we the only people on earth that god has given these rights? Unlawful acts against US citizens by our government are just fine when directed against someone in another country.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Governments have no memory and only deal with the present and the near future. Governments are inclined to use all tools at hand to achieve their nation's goals. Often they decide the best way to deal with a perceived threat is to just make it go away. Unfortunately, the way we make threats go away often produces more threats.

And so it goes.

Re: “Man of Steel is a hollowed-out Superman

So many super hero movies, so little distinction.

Was the writer of this review paid by the parenthetical? ("dude, please" indeed.)

Re: “Man of Steel is a hollowed-out Superman

I love it how anyone who sits back to judge the movie rather than enjoy it tends to forget what superman is. It's a movie based on a COMIC BOOK franchise not an academy award forerunner. This movie WAS the epitome of what a comic book movie should be. There was no reason to "kneel before Zod," because Zod was krypton's warrior, a defender of sorts. He was not some power hungry dictator.

Man of steel 8 of out 10.

Re: “Man of Steel is a hollowed-out Superman

What, no "Kneel Before Zod?" I'll wait until this comes out on Pirate Bay.

Re: “The Place Beyond the Pines

I agree. Pitch movie reviewers, perhaps because of their Midwestern-sized inferiority complexes, must feel that to compete with real movie reviewers on the coasts (or, in Chicago), they need to be insulting even to high-quality cinema, and use a lot of empty, esoteric-sounding descriptives that only impress other Pitch reviewers, I suspect. Their reviews have become as useless as that George Clooney remake of 'Solaris' several years back.

Re: “Admission

Try as you might, my lovely wife will drag me to this and I will have to laugh at every other joke if I want any chance at getting laid later in the night. Sometimes I think she married me just because I have a slight resemblance to Paul Rudd.

Re: “The Kansas City FilmFest announces a lineup worth your spring movie money

Make no mistake, most bronies are people with paedophilic tendencies or have at least been imprinted early with a sexual desire to their stuffed animals.

No sane person would allow their kid around a brony.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

Lol at the comments on here. They told other's they commited the crime? So small town hearsay is evidence now? Stories from other prisoners trying to cut deals is evidence? Echols wife is not a film maker. An Alford is not a guilty plea its a no contest whilst maintaining your plea of innocence. WM3truth is also very one sided to be quite honest.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

If they "found blood" on that necklace then how come years later when the defense had the funds to do their own DNA tests not one of the wm3's DNA was found at the crime scene? Sounds like that necklace was just another one of the states made of evidences. YOU read both sides of the story.

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

The West Memphis Three were found guilty once and plead guilty a second time last year instead of waiting for a trial. Misskelley (one of the 3) confessed FIVE times, three times to the detectives, once to his lawyers and once to the police. Both Echols and Baldwin (one of the 3) told others they committed the crimes. Echols had a long history of violence, threats of violence and psychotic behavior (see Exhibit 500).

Police took a necklace from Echols when he was arrested. An outside crime lab later found blood from two distinct DNA sources on the necklace. One source was consistent with Echols, the other with Baldwin and one of the victims. A car load of people saw Echols in muddy clothes near the crime scene. Read alternative sources about the case like wm3truth, not just the one-sided movies,

Re: “West of Memphis' happy ending isn't really very happy

I never felt comfortable with how the celebrity community embraced this case. It seemed like for all the calls of "goth persecution" there were a lot of celebrities looking to score points with goth teenagers.

There were multiple confessions, witnesses to the crime, Damien's own bragging admission, the list goes on.

No surprise this was all pushed by someone who had an unhealthy obsession with Damien Echols.

Ironic because a point of contention by the prosecution is that Echols was a Manson like figure who could use his sociopathy to influence others to do his bidding. And who better than your filmmaker 'wife' that you married in prison.

There is a big difference between an Alford and time served and being "innocent", or even being not guilty.

Re: “KC filmmaker Todd Sheets reveals some of his Forbidden Secrets

Great article!!! Thank you so much for everything! I actually did 2 movies after Zombie Bloodbath 3, one was Fear of The Dark and the other Whispers In The Gloom. Both with Antwoine Steele who is still with me in the new film. Both did pretty well on an international market level, and both will be hitting USA DVD Summer 2013 with a huge box set being released of my films from 1995 to 2005. I did stop making films in 2005 due to the radio show and how busy I was.
