    Went to a special screening of Bohemian Rhapsody tonight. Absolutely the best movie I've seen in a very long time. If you are a fan of Queen then you can't miss this movie. If it doesn't win several Oscars then they need to quit giving the award out. I really don't think I've ever said that about any movie.

    I was torn because I really dislike what Hollywood stands for, how they've tried to stand in their ivory tower and preach at people, only to have their own house cluttered with rapists, pedophiles, molesters and sexual assaulting A-holes--- all the while keeping it secret---- but I would like to see this movie.

    I agree with clob when it comes to Hollywood. I'm a big fan of Queen. Freddy Mercury was one of, if not the best front men ever. My regret is that I never got to see them live.

    The Hollywood elite thing is so overplayed

    In before thread locked.
    Scholz, I believe you're coming with a view point that either agrees with or runs very closely to that of Hollywood liberals. Cool, no problem. We all have differing takes on life but from MY perspective, the "Hollywood elite thing" rings very true.
    Examples are everywhere all the time. From award shows to all late night talk shows to most every daytime show such as GMA or the View/Talk/ whatever. That new movie about the moon landing even refuses to show the American flag being planted.

    There's a reason so many choose to watch the most hated network of the left, FOX. We don't get berated and belittled nearly as much as we do watching most any other news channels.

    I get it. It's highly unlikely we'll ever see eye to eye on anything political. Even more unlikely either of us would be able to persuade the other into thinking an opposing viewpoint is more accurate than our own.
    Basically, my experience and personal feelings butt heads with that of Hollywood liberals who in large present their beliefs as the only beliefs that are correct. Therefore I, am what's wrong with the world. That's my perspective.

    I agree with Scholz. If ya'll angry at the libs, get off my lawn, Fox news watchers want to miss out on one of the great things in life, film, then go for it. By the way, Fox news is a joke to anyone trying to actually get news. It's complete propaganda designed to fester up the right. It works they are making a killing off of it, but it's poison to the country.

    Come on, man. The things that you're saying about Fox News you can stay the exact same thing about CNN. CNN is very liberal and is absurdly biased against Trump and the right. Both networks give a slanted view, but don't pretend that Fox is all propaganda and poison and CNN is credible. IMO CNN deserves all of the hell that Trump gives them for being so ridiculously biased towards him and the left. Sheesh! :rolleyes:

    We are in the middle of the 4th turning of a generational cycle. One side is going to win and one will lose. We'll still have slavery through usury (fractional reserve banking) no matter which side wins. The Forth Tuning is pretty accurate but it's really a matter of the cycle of Jubilee as stated in Leviticus. We are at the back end of a long Jubilee cycle.

    Back to the movie or this will get locked.

    I saw Brian May in concert one time in Germany. He was great. I have higher movies on my wish list though. Star is Born was super good. Going to see Old Man and a Gun next and then Greenbook.

    Have you read or heard of BANG?
    Brian's book with his professor Patrick Moore? About the history of the universe? He was a grad student in physics at Imperial College London when this Queen thing came along.

    I plan on taking the wifey to see bohemian rapsody as soon as we can line out a babysitter.
    Side note, I don't care what entertainers think politically and prefer to not know. If their craft is good I'll watch or listen even knowing that they hate me. It's just very alienating when they use their very public platform as a soapbox to say what a p.o.s. they think I am.
    Alright MM, that's all the politi-talk I'll do here......today. It stayed very civil for once.
    ON TO THE MOVIES!

    Ha! Neither although I do grow my own tomatoes because they suck at the store. Cycles exist like the seasons, week, monthly menstration, and the biggest is the credit cycle. When the credit expansion starts, everyone is happier. It's the boom but the back end is the crash. It is a time of hideous rancor cause there ain't any walking around money. This is why God gave the Hebrews the 50 year jubilee. It is a way to lessen the natural effects of the credit cycle. Look it up.

    This thread is full of knee slappers that's for sure. And yes I agree both Fox and CNN have their own slant, to say otherwise would be pretty naive.

    Alright, I'm going to wave my ignorance flag and ask. I get what a credit cycle is within the economic sense of the term but am not sure what the correlation with religion is. Are you talking about something I can read up on from creditable or more mainstream channels or is it something I need to know a secret handshake and password to the dark web to access?

    According to the movie, and admittidly who knows how accurate it is, every member of Queen was set to have a incredible career in other fields.

    Brian May was a very accomplished Physicist
    John Deacon was studying to become an Electrical Engineer
    Roger Taylor was a dental student.

    pretty amazing and accomplished group of guys that just happen to become one of the greatest bands ever.

    What's also pretty amazing is that outside of Freddie, none of the rest of the band really got caught up deeply into the Rock and Roll life style. Very level headed group of guys considering the time frame they were biggest.
