Re: “The West Memphis Three are free ... what about the real killer?

lol they did not provide credible alibis... damien's alibi helped the prosecution more than anything cause none of his "alibis" could account for his whereabouts from 6-9. they only could account for him before, and after those times.

Re: “Catfish is another dodgy doc

"But, like various species of its aquatic namesake, the film is a bottom feeder and a parasite."
Huuummm... desgreed. Most of us are meeting people on the internet and it's natural that after a while we want to get it out of virtual. It's note parasite, c'mon. The gay chose to put himself into the real situatio, as also did the familie, as they are thanked at the end and agreed to be shown, even causing a lot of shame. It's entertaining and makes us think about our own virtual life, sth we cannot deny these days.

Re: “The West Memphis Three are free ... what about the real killer?

No one really knows who did it. Who are we to judge anyone involved in this case. But I have to agree that terry hobbs looks like a viable suspect but that doesn't make him the killer still. Like I said if the killer doesn't get his now he will eventually

Re: “The West Memphis Three are free ... what about the real killer?

1. none of the new evidence is exculpatory.
2. lack of DNA does not equal innocence. in reality, less than 10% of murderers leave DNA evidence at a crime scene (FBI statistics).
3. Hobbs "DNA" isn't as clear cut as they lead you to believe. the DNA found was only a partial sequence that was consistent with 7% of the total population, not just Hobbs.
4. if it were Hobbs DNA, it can easily be proved as secondary transfer because one victim lived in his home and the other two played there regularly. also, this DNA is said to have been found inside a knot of a ligature used to tie one victim--that is not so. if you read the trial transcripts you will find that it was actually found wrapped around the ligature, it was never mentioned anywhere of being inside a knot until the defense led the lab worker on the stand to say it was.
5. the wm3 "speak so eloquent," what do you expect when you have a PR firm writing everything you say and are present at every interview to ensure you say the right things.
6. you like to point to Hobbs lies 18 years later, what about the wm3's lies just days after the crime, the changing alibis, made up alibis, especially Echols.

I could go on but I have work to do.

Re: “The West Memphis Three are free ... what about the real killer?

I think they should look at terry hobbs indeed funny how the dna connected him to the murder. I thought it was also weird if he was so innocent as he stated why did he lie so much and deny the dna test he knew it would lead him to the murder. I think he needs to be put on trial for the murder of these poor boys. It should've been him on trial to begin with he acted very strange for someone who just lost a child he was acting cold emotionless.

Re: “Remembering an original talk-show jerk in Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

I do fondly remember "The Morton Downey Show" when it ran in syndication late night during the mid-1980's and ended its run in the early 1990's. And for those who remember seeing the show,which was taped before a "rowdy" live audience at New York's WOR-TV and the guests he had on that show. I've seen the TV show,but to many of us,his show was right up there long before the trash talkers and garbage that comes from Jerry Springer and Maury Povich and to an lesser extent Wendy Williams. But from the previous comment, and to many of us we get that same quality of trash talk liberal right wing garbage from radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and even to the lowest common point of stupidity from Michael Savage, Neil Boortz, and Herman Cain, Ed Schultz, Tavis Smiley and from the idiots who run FOX News.

Re: “Cannes winner Blue Is the Warmest Color comes to town

Not since the original "Emmanuelle" has a movie this explicit been so erotic. The last erotic French film to push the envelope was the 2006 erotic sexually graphic "Exterminating Angels"

Re: “Cannes winner Blue Is the Warmest Color comes to town

its strange that a film is defined by its tittilation - the director has created a film for men with the emphasis on sex to meke money. He made it 3 hours long so that he could disguise his real intentions by calling it an Art film, "commercial" films are never that long unless the director is trying to deflect the real reason for the sex going through the film. The actresses have said they felt humiliated, debased and Seydoux sais she felt like a prostitute - is that the normal response to a successful film from its lead actors. My poiint is that the film is pointless as the actresses performed sex for a male audience withy commercial undertones - the nonsense interviews in Cannes have been shown up to be the farce they were. The actresses hated making the film and obviously feel hurt and anger at the director, that is why they have condemned him after Cannes and their trophies. The critics are saying that it is a beautifull film and the sex scenes didnt need to be performed by lesbians. I wonder if they would feel the same way if it was a film with straight men having to have intercourse and pretend to be gay. I suspect not - makes my point that this is a film for men to titillate and make money in the guise of Art.

Re: “Pink Smoke Over the Vatican examines gender discrimination in the Catholic Church

This is very interesting. I agree with you with women to be ordained priests. There is nothing in the Bible that says women cannot celebrate communion.

Re: “Pink Smoke Over the Vatican examines gender discrimination in the Catholic Church

I disagree with ' in 2010, under the regime of Pope Benedict XVI, the Vatican classified the ordination of women as a "grave crime," the same category that governs sexual abuse by priests'.
Priests that even think that it might be acceptable to ordain women are drop kicked out of the clergy and church. Priests that abuse children are shuffled around for as long as 40 years, then given pensions, and are buried with full honors when they die. The bishops that knowingly cover up crimes are given cushy jobs in the Vatican. Did i say Bernard Law?
Different category.

Re: “Tom Hanks' new maritime adventure, Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips may be an excellent film but I wouldn't know. I didn't get to see the end. Neil Morris says "Greengrass largely stills his trademark camera-in-a-blender..." I completely disagree. Actually it's more like camera in a food processor. The camera starts moving, pitching, yawing, rolling, and shaking at the opening frame and relentlessly never stops. I don't think Greengrass has ever heard of a tripod or a Steadicam.

Anyway it was too much for me, I lost it just before the Seals arrive. The staff at the theater were very gracious. They gave my wife and I two passes for another time. I'll try to see it again, but fortified with Dramamine. You have been warned!!!!

Re: “Ron Howard's Formula One flick, Rush

"Brühl's clipped accept"??? I think you meant ACCENT!

BTW, there are several online articles about how Brühl -- who is fluent in German -- had to retool his accent to sound AUSTRIAN like Niki Lauda.

Re: “The Act of Killing is a troubling documentary about mass murder

I urge everyone to see this unsettling documentary and then take action on the issues raised by the film. Impunity persists in Indonesia for the 1965-66 crimes depicted in the film, as it does for later crimes committed by Indonesia's armed forces from Indonesia's U.S.-backed invasion and occupation of East Timor to ongoing violations in West Papua. Human rights groups are supporting an appeal from survivors of the' 65 massacres for the Indonesian government to acknowledge the truth about the 1965 crimes and to apologize and provide reparations to the victims and their families.

Re: “New documentary The United States of Football examines our most popular sport's toll

Yup, I played football in high school and now I'm shocked by the slowness of the games, the corporatization of the sport, and how many people follow a game I no longer pay any attention. I'm glad this documentary is coming out, right as the season starts. I'm shocked how many people waste entire Saturdays and Sundays watching the sport.

Injuries. It took one hit early in my career to prove the sport was extremely dangerous to the body and brain. I played college lacrosse at the Div. I level and nothing in the sport comes close to the impact on the body and brain of football hits. I still play soccer and sure, injuries can happen, but not too many people play tackle football as adults. Wonder why...

I read the Gladwell article but sadly, just like the doc., the people who need to see it will probably be watching Monday Night Football instead.

And don't even get me started on college football. It has NO BUSINESS being an amateur sport on campuses. Same with basketball. They're semi-pro and the "student"-athletes have zero interest in being part of the college community.

Exploitation. Yup, an excellent point. Non-whites with nothing to lose, everything to gain putting it all on the line while rich whites cheer in the crowds. Hmm, how long ago was Public Enemy (Flava Flav) rapping about the ridiculousness of white QBs? And it's still happening.

Look at a school like Alabama. Rich white kids and white people...and nearly an entirely black team, aside from the punter and the QB...and the coach.
