Re: “The September Issue

the reviewer clearly never saw "the devil wears prada." Meryl Streep was silver (grey) haired...not bleached blond.

Re: “What's Wrong With Up in the Air

I liked this movie more than I thought I would, but still agree w/ JR Jones. I'd read his review first, and watching the movie, I thought, "crap, he's right." A lot of the first third was totally contrived -- Vera Farmiga (who once claimed she'd never do big movies. You're full of it, Vera!) sitting spread-eagled in a hotel bar, dangling her rental car key? Please. Then they compare rewards cards and points? Ridiculous. A lot of "Up...." was crap, but a lot was enjoyable, and definitely a movie for our times. Not all times. Just these times.

Re: “They Didn't Think of the Children

"..Hunt wants to make it clear that he doesn't blame "families for having lots of kids, or single mothers. The tenants are the victims here," he says."

are you kidding me? if you're poor, you don't have kids, or tons of them. oh, wait, yes you do -- because welfare gives you more money the more kids you have. you make your bed, you lie in it. simple. public housing residents don't pay to live in their homes, so i have no sympathy for them. liberal (and I say this as a democrat) bs like this that takes a "oh, those poor victims" view is, well, just that - bs.
