Noah: A spoiler critique review…

I really liked The Ten Commandments and Ben Hur. I laughed at Life of Brian (come on people, it is a comedy). I thought the Passion of the Christ was good (some parts were very good), but one viewing was enough for me. Most biblical movies beyond that are either boring or offensive.  The truth is most are boring.

Beyond the controversy, I really have no desire to spend $10 to go see Noah. I generally like these actors, but it is not a story that compels me to go to the theater. I did not care for Avatar, not because of its politics, but because it wasn't that good (it had its moments, but it was predictable and not written that well).  I suspect the same will be true for this film. I will probably see it when it is on Netflix. But Ben Shapiro did see it and reviews it below.

Bill Clinton named in Alleged Pederast-Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Lawsuit?

Well that is sort of embarrassing, isn't it?  
‘Bill must have known about Jeffrey’s girls. There were three desks in the living area of the villa on the island.

‘We all dined together that night. Jeffrey was at the head of the table. Bill was at his left. I sat across from him. Emmy Tayler, Ghislaine’s blonde British assistant, sat at my right.
‘Ghislaine was at Bill’s left and at the left of Ghislaine there were two olive-skinned brunettes who’d flown in with us from New York.

'I’d never met them before. I’d say they were no older than 17, very innocent-looking.
‘They weren’t there for me. They weren’t there for Jeffrey or Ghislaine because I was there to have sex with Jeffrey on the trip.
‘Maybe Jeffrey thought they would entertain Bill, but I saw no evidence that he was interested in them. He and Jeffrey and Ghislaine seemed to have a very good relationship. Bill was very funny.

Separated at Birth: Fatty Arbuckle and...? With bonus vintage Rule 5...

Ace and TOM are on this:  Hey Arbuckle and Christie were both set up for something they (probably) didn't do (Arbuckle was absolutely innocent)...

Fatty Arbuckle and...
Chris Christie

I am not a fan of Chris Christie due to his establishment GOP positions and the way he hurt Romney for his own political benefit just before the 2012 Election (I definitely do not want him being the GOP nominee ever, let alone 2016). But on this BridgeGate thing it is increasingly looking liked he got falsely accused. And what is going on to Christie over BridgeGate paraells in a way to what Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle went through (although what happened to Arbuckle is much worse). The reality is fat people are treated poorly (which is another reason, however unfair, Christie should not be a nominee even without the other issues).

Here is Virginia Rappe Rule 5.  She was physically attractive, but insane.  Add to that a manipulative evil woman named Bambina Delmont and Arbuckle had to fight for his life in court, only to find his career destroyed.
