@ERN,

What makes the following Onion (the fake news site) narrative funny?

We already knew you believe that. It's been very clear for a long time.

Re: “Trumbo

Trumbo was running around Hollywood with a hammer and sickle supporting Stalin, who killed millions of his own people. In fact, Stalin invoked so much carnage there is no consensus on how many innocent civilians he had murdered and starved to death. Estimates run from 11 million all the way up to 50 million, and the lower number puts him pretty much in a dead heat with Hitler. That's some pretty exclusive company.

Enjoy the movie.

Re: “Mythbusters Come to Memphis

Never been a big fan of this reality show, either, especially after they added all the additional cast.

Thank you Nightcrawler, it has gotten so lynching has become a dirty word.

Re: “Amy Schumer Live At The Apollo

Thank the Great Spirits indeed, Mia.

I learned about the "Lets rescind everyone's inherent civil rights" crowd, and Lyndon Baines Johnson's progressive presidential hoodwinking, back in the sixties.

I won't soon forget.

Re: “Amy Schumer Live At The Apollo

No thanks. Anyone who champions abolishing and/or restricting my inherent civil rights, I wouldn't spend one penny of my money on to see, or waste my time watching.

Apparently, Uncle, "I'll usurp your constitutional guaranteed inherent rights away in a New York minute" Chuckie has influenced Ms. Amy too much. Her loss...

Re: “Spectre

Q was just adorable. My favorite line in the movie was, "I have a mortgage and 2 cats."

Re: “Indie Memphis 2015 Day 4: Debutants, Raiders, and Phantoms

Phantom of the Paradise was hardly Brian de Palma's "debut". It was his eighth feature.

Re: “Horrortober: The Wicker Man (1973)

Important casting in-joke: In Edgar Wright's HOT FUZZ, Edward Woodward plays a seemingly harmless resident of the remote, award-winning English village of Sandford. Simon Pegg plays a London cop relocated to Sandford who discovers that "there are secrets bubbling beneath the...placid exterior" that involve a cult whose members murder mimes and juvenile delinquents "for the greater good (THE GREATER GOOD)" and to keep the town quaint.

It's the little things that make HOT FUZZ an A+ film.

Also, the Nic Cage remake (from Neil LaBute!) is indeed mercilessly dumb in spite of its invocation of the rare back-to-back dream sequence.
