Re: “Kubo and the Two Strings

The characters are fun and lovable, but also brave and dimensional. Not one character felt out of place and they're inclusion felt important. The voice casting is top-notch and I felt like the celebrities actually made an effort.

Re: “The Get Down

I'm not sure if he hates the Bronx, Nick. He wasn't even aware that this show was based there. It seems, however, that he views all poor, minority communities in NYC as one monotonous group. I'm not sure how you can so firmly say that an area was a hallucinatory war zone when you're not even correct on the location. It indicates that he did not actually do research on the history of the Bronx and therefore, wrote off the foundation of the plot as dramatized. Leaving me again to believe this review is biased and invalid.

Re: “The Get Down

For the record:

1. I have never had a pumpkin spice latte.
2. One Direction is a plague on humanity.
3. I watched the show, and stand by my review.

I claim my $10.

Re: “The Get Down

Diane/Michele,
Likely biased, you mean like he hates the Bronx?

Re: “The Get Down

The show takes place in the Bronx--not Brooklyn. Did you actually watch the show? They mention the South Bronx every episode. Did you even look at it's Wiki page? Your entire commentary is likely biased and therefore, invalid.

Michelle,
Don't know what Pumpkin Spice Lattes or One Direction are, could you dumb it down for me?

Re: “The Get Down

You can tell a white person who orders loads of Pumpkin Spice Lattes wrote this and likely listens to a bunch of One Direction.

Epic fail. Ten bucks says you barely paid attention before writing this review.

Re: “Politics and the Movies 3: Olympia

Not a defender of the regime...but a defender of truth that has ben bastardized and taken root. Any investigation will back me up. When Riefenstahl was asked by Hitler to do "Triumph"...she was taken aback saying, "Why I don't even know the difference between the S.A. and the SS."..Hitler responded, "That's exactly why I want you to do it." Goebbels knew enough to keep quiet but barely concealed his anger during the filming. She was more artist than Nazi...and her mountaineering films closely parallel Triumph and especially Olympia.
The Olympics ?... Jesse Owens decried defaming Germanys "man of the hour"...further stating that later he waved to Hitler and he rose and waved back. His main income in later years evolved into template "Hitler snub" speaking engagements because he said, "That's what they want to hear." Ralph Metcalfe, another black American Olympian actually requested and received a framed autographed Hitler photo.
Again, I am not defending the regime, and had the chance at a Berlin flea market to go through a copy of the official coffee table book of the Olympics published in 1936. Owens was featured on four pages....two of which were full page photographs. The real snub Owens received was from Roosevelt who neither congratulated him nor sent a telegram which all the non African Americans were sent.
Finally and little known is that copies of Olympia were sent to each participating nation with special editing featuring that countries athletes.

Re: “Politics and the Movies 3: Olympia

All beautifully said. Btw, in what is a king-sized irony seldom (if ever) remarked upon, there are several clips of Owens and articles from the 1936 event in which the great athlete expresses himself as having a great time at the Olympics and completely downplays any effort to draw a political moral from his victories. The "Owens-versus-Hitler" motif was as absent from his mind as it was from Riefenstahl's. It may have served a useful purpose, but, basically, it was our side's propaganda.

Re: “Kubo and the Two Strings

The "two strings" are the bracelets he wears around his wrist, one of which is a lock of his mother's hair and the other is from his father. During the climax, he breaks all three strings on his shamisen, and then replaces them with the two strings from his father and mother, and a third string of his own devising, and then uses the combined strength to defeat the Moon King. It's subtle, but it's there.
