Duck, You Sucker / Wee f*** of a revolutuion in Ireland. (??)

Before the Easter Rising (the anniversary of which is in 3 days time) there was no "revolution" in Ireland.  
Unquote.

No, if the Easter Rebellion had be a "Revolution", they'd have won, not been captured and imprisoned/executed. Not by the proper definition.


There was no  "technical" revolution in Ireland until their winning of their free state in 1921. But, rebellious/revolutionary activities went back 800 years. Technically it was all civil war until 1921.

The only difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter is the FF won. Imagine; George Washington losing? Being  named historically, a : "terrorist"? Shudders....

Off-Topic Discussion / Most Versatile Actor/Actress?
« on: April 14, 2011, 09:23:29 PM »
Cast your vote for the most versatile actor, or, actress, of your opinion.

I, myself, am torn between James Cagney, Tom Hanks, Robert Duval, Sean Connery,  and Danny DeVito.    I give Coburn some Kudos, too.  I don't give Eastwood any, as his attempts to play romantic parts., "Paint Your Wagon", "Bridges of Madison County" are wimpy...he is best as the tough guy.

Duck, You Sucker / Synopsis on new board
« on: March 07, 2011, 10:40:40 AM »
The synopsis on the new board; "A Fistful of Dynamite", states  the movie is: " Never on Cable". Far From it! It was on several times at least one week in 2004, on TNT, or Turner Classic Movies, I forget which. There were scenes in it  I had never scene in the Theater (But, the F** words, and Juan flipping off John after he is carried away from El Banco, were cut. Maybe this was AMC, as they cut up movies? I distinctly remember these "dirty" scenes as a 14 y.o.)  Anyway, I had to get the Disc after this--Saw a Lot of scenes that had been  deleted! (Some just shortened the movie.)  A lot in the book was explained.  I have seen been "spoiled"  in that any movie less than 2 hours is not worth it; even 3 hours sometimes barely fully develops the characters. Note how Oscars go to long, epic dramas--Ten Commandments, Lawrence of Arabia, Dr, Zhivago, Titanic, etc?
