How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

I don't even care was Us is about. I'm already there.

Re: Academy expulsions -- I don't know why this is even a discussion. No matter what one's contributions to the medium, membership is a privilege, not a guaranteed right, and considering that Polanski pled guilty to and Cosby was convicted of felony sex crimes, I'm confused as to why anyone would stan for them. Throw out the trash and let the collector take it away.

@Troy H

Hollywood is a literal House of Cards (no pun intended) where removing some notorious members will bring about the collapse of the whole thing. And legacy content from problematic people matters. I would hate the suppression of said legacy content for the sake of victim's feelings. The posterity of art is important. Hence availability instead of stumping out a livelihood just because.

/3rtful, I don't have the energy to explain to you everything wrong with your comment, but I will say that I was not advocating for suppression or erasure of anyone's past work.

Troy -- i don't think it's a question of people 'stanning for them'. I'm guessing some older members probably remember the stories of the McCarthy era and the Blacklist (which Hollywood has never lived down and they've made a million movies about how awful they were / that was) so people are genuinely worried about moral policing or people's careers being undone with a single finger pointed and that sort of thing.

Thankfully they haven't expelled anyone who was only accused of something... just people who were actuallly found guilty convicted or admitted guilt. or in Weinstein's case when the evidence piling up was an avalanche.

@Troy H - I'm in the same boat with you, on board for whatever Peele brings us - if his cast of N'Yongo, Duke, and Moss comes through all the more.

Also, I have heard criticisms of #metoo from many who feel that it is running rampant and ruining careers - but not from the perspective of anyone who still protests their innocence, mostly from people who have said "yes, I did that". Interesting.

Well, Amazon won't enter Jeffrey Tambor for any awards so the times of the black list are alive and kicking.

Love Madonna's performance at the Met Gala. It was such an artistic piece and her voice was incredible. I would really love for her to do something out of the box at this stage of her career - like something on Broadway.
