11 years ago @ Big Hollywood - You know, at the very least, we would have had all the lefties actually paying attention to what the President was doing. This is why I think we always need a Republican president. Most of the time the Republicans and Democrats end up doing the same stuff (recall that McCain was floating a health plan very similar to Obamacare) but at least people pay attention and complain.
I don't believe we get anything of great value from such journalists running around dodging bullets and screaming over tank shells, anymore than we get something of value from journalists standing in the wind and rain during hurricanes.
If you've ever watched something like "Last Comic Standing" (terrible show, but bear with me) you know two things comic scouts hate: mixed people making dumb "I'm half X and half Y, so I Z!" jokes ... and women complaining about their boyfriends.
Yes, there have been funny female comedians. But they are very, very few and far between.
And the Apatow thing really just proves the point: if you find Apatow's movies funny, which I don't, you find women ACTING LIKE MEN funny.
The rest are just ... meh. Blair Witch was the original disappointment, Paranormal Activity was kind of fun once (and never needed a sequel) and I don't have the requisite belief structure to enjoy a 'posession' story :-P
Stewart and Reed were both critical to this movie.
Have you ever watched Bill O'Reilly? I'm not a fan, but I'm not a fan because he's nothing like people claim. He is too 'reasonable', too 'nice'. He may have started out yelling and screaming, but now he is almost mouse-like, particularly when he has some left-wing nutjob on his show. Jon Stewart screams and acts like a jerk more than O'Reilly does, because O'Reilly realized that 'softening' was the best way to stay on the air, while Stewart realized yelling was the best way for him to keep his fan base of constant, purposeless outrage.
