Mental Note...

Boycott anything coming out of Hollywood for, oh, the rest of my life.

Filmmakers demand Polanski's release
ZURICH, Switzerland (CNN) -- Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese have "demanded the immediate release" of fellow filmmaker Roman Polanski, who was arrested in Switzerland on a U.S. arrest warrant related to a 1977 child sex charge.

They were among 138 people in the film industry who signed a petition against the arrest.

Y'know, it's probably not the greatest idea in the world to have Woody freakin' Allen as the headliner on a petition about letting someone go free for raping a child. Just a thought.

What's the take-home lesson here? It's okay to drug and rape a 13 year old child if you make powerful movies? That as long as you're rich, famous, and/or connected you can get away with the most heinous of crimes? That other rich, famous, powerful people will lobby on your behalf no matter what you are accused for? That time not only heals all wounds, but grants absolution from positively sub-human behavior?

I would say "for shame, Hollywood" but for one thing: They don't know the meaning of the word.

That is all.

Stop wasting your breath. Those feckless hypocritical f*ck-nuggets aren't worth your time.

And "lessers" was my verification word. How appropriate for this post.

Shame? Isn't that an old Woody Allen movie?

Not that those hollywood pukes are anybody I'd idolize (or even listen to), but most of the ones who signed it are French and worked on some of Polanski's films (if that makes it any better).

Ahhh the moral giant Woody Allen! I am sure they will let Polanski go now!

By the way -- great job on Gun Nuts last night -- it was fun!

Next we'll get an Oliver Stone movie about it, I guess, showing how it was all a misunderstanding.

Release him, out the the airplane crew door, at altitude, sans parachute.

All these moral-less, Holly-weird, dirt-bags should be made to experience unwelcome sodomy themselves.

Boycott everything from Holly-weird. Creeps.

I love movies too much to boycott (BTW saw "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" the other night at the 3D IMax. Thanks for the recommendation!)

I've just learned that the actors I watch are mostly unintelligent degenerates, and I watch them for their acting talent (or directing talent) and for nothing else.

George Clooney might be a moonbat asshole, but he makes some good film.

Robert Downey Jr. is a Coke Junkie, but he puts out good product.

Sarah Polly can fight zombies with the best of 'em....sure she's a Canadian Moonbat.

Roman made some awesome films, but he's a rapist pedo.

I hope they lock him up forever...but I'm still gonna love watching The Ninth Gate and Rosemary's Baby, and if I find a DVD copy of Polanski's MacBeth it's going into my collection!

Thankfully Woody Allen sucks out loud, so I'm not really Boycotting him as much as not watching shit film.
