May 17th 2011 2:19PM But the whole point is that Arnold should NOT be called a "family-values" Republican in the first place because he never was one. His being pro-abortion makes that point clear better than anything. And just because some Republicans who claim to be FOR family values end-up failing terribly in this area doesn't make those values any less true and something to aspire to. I feel especially for Mrs. Schwarzenegger, who--like so many of the other Kennedy women--have had to endure unfaithful husbands. But with the "values" most Democrats hold (and RHINO Republicans), why should any one be surprised here?
May 7th 2011 4:24PM Sounds like a really nice guy, and we all know how talented he is. The version of "Teenage Dream" on "Glee" was one of the most electrifying things I have ever seen; just brilliantly done. When he and the Warblers were on the TODAY Show recently, Darren's voice sounded pretty worn-out, so I hope he doesn't let the non-stop schedule wear out his pipes. Given how he's moving-up in this world, he should soon be able to trade that Boston piano in for a Steinway. I like his hair better on "Glee" than the way he usually wears it.
Dec 28th 2010 12:28AM Just read over the comments made about my original comment, and I am amazed at how nasty some of the commenters are, especially since I was stating why I think movies are so lousy today. And since Heather has assumed I am a "quasi-fanatic-bible-thumping religious freak," perhaps I should have mentioned that I am a progressive Jew who was taught to respect other peoples' religions, including Christians. Funny that Heather gave me a lecture about not judging others, right after she tore me a new one while judging me. JEB said I should leave the movies and go to church and "be cleansed by Jesus." Interesting thought, but since we don't worship Jesus in my synagogue, I think I'll pass on that one. And someone said about such offensive language, "it's reality... part of normal life." I must disagree. While I occasionally hear someone use such boorish language publicly, overall-in my work, social, and other situations-I rarely hear the language that is thrown in your face constantly in so many movies, such as the Denzel Washington one I referred to before. I am just as offended by God's name being used in vain as right-wing Christians are. Society is already debased enough without movies adding to it. The fact that so many of the responders think it's just fine, I-as a Jew-find quite amazing and very sad.
Dec 27th 2010 11:43PM An excellent point: the fact that the n-word isn't used in films anymore shows that movie makers don't have to be offensive in their language. Hollywood could use just "damn" without the word "God" in front of it, and the script would be fine. Just because some people aren't offended by such usage shouldn't justify such words being used, since so many others are. Just not needed.
Dec 27th 2010 2:33PM The thing that keeps me away from the movies is the horrible language, especially using God's name-in-vain, as well as the "F word." I went to a PG-13 movie recently--the one about the runaway train starring Denzel Washington--thinking I was safe, but I had to withstand at least 15 uses of God's name-in-vain, which was appalling. I thought such usage put a movie into the R category! (And don't tell me that's the way life is. Not everybody is so coarse.) No wonder the kids today have such atrocious language in their regular vocabulary. Clean-up the language and I'll be back at the movies regularly for sure.
Nov 19th 2010 6:28PM Langx -- "Whoever came up with this marriage junk"? You've got to be kidding. Have you ever heard of God?
Nov 17th 2010 6:08PM So she's already dropped the "Parker" part of her name? On "Desperate Housewives," she's listed as Eva Longoria Parker (not sure if she used a hyphen or not).
Nov 17th 2010 6:02PM James, did you HAVE to used God's name in-vain? Your main point is bad enough, but to finish it off the way you did is appalling.
Nov 13th 2010 3:26PM Olivia - Hope you'll quit being a religious bigot someday.
Nov 13th 2010 3:17PM To Ashley who wrote the article:Several times you refer to David's Christmas album as a "holiday album," and you ask him about his favorite "holiday" movie. Please lose the "PC" term and call them what they are: Christmas albums and Christmas movies. Since David is obviously really into Christmas, you should have seen that.
