Wow. I actually like the Occupy Movement, and would like to see it as a force to educate the masses about economic inequality -- but that's never going to happen if there's not a single person in the office who knows how to string a sentence together. Why would you give money to a campaign (with presumably TEXT in the ads) that can't even spell the name of the person they're looking to emulate? You can't do a basic google search before pushing the launch button? You don't know when to use a plural verb form? There's not a single coherent sentence on their IndieGoGo site. It's a total mess. More than one word is clearly used by an individual who never heard of a dictionary. They should be embarrassed. A fourth grader could have done better than this.
I'm not forgiving you for calling Tom Cruise a great actor. Wait, don't tell me: he played a pompous, egotistical, into himself white guy. Have you noticed that's his only role? He's playing Tom Cruise. Nope, not forgiving you for this. Ever.
the only certainty at the Portland Mercury is that Erik Henriksen will never write a decent movie review. As with all other reviews, consider this an indication that the movie is amazing.
I don't know. I tend to agree with Gerbils, though I'd probably pick BORED over retarded. And if you're going to use guns as props as a trite route towards edgy, you could at least get the models to hold the guns properly.
It's a little bizarre to me that people are responding to this as another instance of police thuggery. I'm not a fan of the PPD, and have been appalled by many recent violent acts - but this isn't one of them. A man covered in blood with a knife in his hand advances towards a police officer, after the officer's been called to a popular Portland tourist destination to address a situation. I'm not sure how I would have responded, but firing does not seem out of line here, especially when in all likelihood the officer didn't know whose blood was covering the man, and what mental state he was in. Covered with blood generally equals danger. The officer was not called to a mental health facility where others were around to help him apply restraint - it was a public park. If the officer's name happened to be one of the serial douchebags constantly in trouble for excessive force, I might think different - but based upon what we know so far, I don't think there's much cause for anti-cop rallying. A little perspective, people. If you always come to the same black and white conclusion regardless of circumstances or evidence, you're not thinking very hard.
I think the Blair Witch Project should be mentioned, due to their unprecidented viral web marketing of a low budget film with no big name actors. Might also want to mention "the Cell" for doing crazy fantasy inspired special effects before Pan's Labrynth. Kind of annoyed that you bothered to mention any of the Star Wars movies, since if anything they demonstrated how out of touch George Lucas had become, both with his fanbase and innovations in special effects. There was nothing ground breaking about either movie.
I read this while sitting in Powell's one day, skipping most of the "Girl" sections (though I'm a girl myself) and reading the horny boy sections with great enthusiasm. While the book has good sex scenes and is funny, it's all gimmick and no action, and that only goes so far.
