We can argue all day about the merits of certain films and film makers, but I think you're missing the point. These films are made for one reason and one reason only. To entertain. Sure, films are scrutanized as works of art and can be quite profound and even life changing for some people, but all directors like Scorsese and Tarantino want is for people to watch their films and to thoroughly enjoy them. In Tarantino's case, he doesn't list his favorite movies as 2001 or Apocalypse Now, but lists kung fu and B horror movies of the 70's as his favorites. I didn't really take that into account until after Kill Bill 1 and once I did I was able to sit back and be thoroughly entertained by Kill Bill 2, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Scorsese's films are slightly different from Tarantino's because his films are often intense character studies of physically or emotionally bruised people, which can leave the viewer emotionally spent, but the same basic intent is there and Shutter Island is no exception. I would argue that if you are not able to enjoy these films, then I doubt you could be entertained by anything.
Additionally, I have a hard time taking the Mercury's reviews seriously these days. I mean they gave Australia a good review. Enough said.
Honestly, maxims and the rest of the No vote can go on and on trying to prove how smart you are and post your fancy quotes and blah blah blah. The same can also be said for the Pro vote. It won't change the fact that logic and reason are NOT on your side. The fact that this has become such a heated debate is shocking to me. I grew up in a city that flouridated, so I know the benefits of it.
There only two questions that should be asked; Is it safe? Yes. Does it work? Yes.
Kind of a no brainer, but the far left want to turn it into a bigger issue than it needs to be. And for the record, I'm about as far left as they come. I believe in socialism and hope to see firearms of all kinds completely banned. But on this issue, I have to go with my experience and all logical reasoning which tells me flouride in the water is nothing to fear.
Lets not forget the main and really only reason why every major city has flouridated their water. That is to help the less fortunate, those who can't afford or who have probably never been to a dentist, from losing their teeth.
I would argue that it's a lot easier for the well-to-do to take flouride out of their water than it is for the less fortunate to add it to it. Not everyone in this city comes from a white, upper middle-class background, even though it sure feels that way most of the time.
This vote just proves this town is run by a bunch of stupid, well-to-do white people. Ok, lets not do what every other major city has done and which actually works, all so we can remain "weird."
I find it ironic that a city and state that claims to be helping children by shielding them from so-called harmful chemicals like flouride and vaccines, has the highest rates of autism in the nation. Not to mention the worst teeth outside of the deep south.
Chris, please don't give full reviews for places like this in the future. Any of us can go and try a slice for ourselves with little risk. Save your reviews for eateries with more varied menus or that are likely to cause a person to pause before deciding wether or not to spend their hard earned dollars there. Pizza places like this are kind of a no-brainer.
Yay, another New York style pizza place. How exciting. Sorry if the sarcasm isn't coming through in print.
This town will never understand what truly great pizza is. Apizza Scholls is the only place that comes close. Thank god, I'll be back in Milwaukee next month where I can enjoy a decent pie. The new Pizza Man should be open by then. Might trek down to Chicago for a proper deep dish too.
Ok Henriksen. You've had a nice string of big budget, Hollywood action films to review lately. Seems like you're enjoying them. Stick to those because you clearly don't understand or enjoy anything else.
Yes, I was hoping Henriksen would write another batshit review. Nitpicking things that shouldn't be nitpicked and completely missing the point. I'm going to see it Asap. Boyle has never let me down before.
