Best movie of the year so far: Gloria Bell.
And yes, they probably should do some jail time.
Has the college bribing scandal changed your perception of Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy or Lori Loughlin one way or the other?March 14, 2019 at 10:19 am #1202816380
No. The wealthy always exploit the systems in which they operate; this situation falls fully into that which I expect of people with more capital (see: power) than they should have.

Yes! I mean, the pedigree of Huffman and Macy is staggering! Like, this isn’t some Kardashian scam or something. They could face JAIL! We’re talking Mamet protégées, Oscar nominees, Emmy winners, and on and on. I don’t know how their respective careers recover from this, at least in the short-term. Think about how long it took Winona to land “Stranger Things” after Stealgate…

Yes. I never in my wildest dreams thought that Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy would do what they did. We’re taking about bonafide acting legends here! They’re both a part of some of my favorite TV shows and movies ever. It’s surreal. They both deserve jail time, but they probably won’t get it (still waiting for Huffman and Loughlin’s respective mugshots, BTW).
Do you guys think that Macy, Huffman and Loughlin deserve to go to jail for this scandal?Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMarch 14, 2019 at 3:04 pm #1202816713
Haven’t seen any new 2019 films yet. Waiting on “Us.”
It’s blatant fraud. Jail time, fines, court fees, expulsion, community service. ALL OF IT!
Back to the college bribing scandal question.
I don’t know how Macy wasn’t indicted along with Loughlin and his wife. He was pretty knee deep in this shit also.March 15, 2019 at 10:28 pm #1202818183
Again: yes, they probably should be jailed. At the very least they should be fined handsomely.
Has Leaving Neverland changed your perception of Michael Jackson? If you haven’t seen the film, has the conversation around it changed your perception of Michael Jackson?March 15, 2019 at 10:46 pm #1202818191
Got in an argument with someone who made an offensive joke about the MJ accusers on here recently. Haven’t watched it yet, but I really don’t have any reason to not believe them. Jackson was a pretty weird guy and what I have read (such as the specifics of what they said when they were kids about Jackson’s *ahem*) doesn’t really help him. So I guess my perception has never really changed: he had good music but he was obviously beyond problematic and creepy by being a pedophile.

Amazon Prime. Hulu. Netflix. Please rank your preferences for each.March 16, 2019 at 3:49 pm #1202818851
I dont really have a perception on dead people tbh, I didnt even care to watch the documentary.I still bop to some of his songs.

1. Netflix – has the bigger selection
2. Amazon – Hulu has a better selection, but I can rent and buy movies and whatnot, plus you can apply other subcriptions to it
3. Hulu – as said above, has a better selection than Amazon but you can’t buy or rent

Since the MJ question is a good one, that first. Haven’t seen the documentary, but these allegations were always around in my era. It didn’t change how huge a part of my life his music encapsulated then, and I don’t think it does now either. You can’t disregard childhood memories. But in this new #MeToo advocacy era, we have to listen to the victims, and these two guys are highly credible. MJ was a singular musical genius, and as it turns out, also a pedophile. Wagner was also a musical genius and a huge anti-Semite. Polanski, Allen, Cosby, R. Kelly, Spacey, Weinstein, etc. Tough times we’re living in.
2. Amazon Prime
Top five favorite streaming programs (any service, any genre)? Grade them.March 16, 2019 at 6:05 pm #1202818892
For me, it has to do with particular content of interest published to YouTube. The individuals add up to more than five.
Same question…March 18, 2019 at 1:04 am #1202820211
That’s all I’ve tried. I’m cheap lmao.
Because it’s so important, and I also read what that backwards, low-key racist user (and yes I will name him) @m with the Ed Sheeran pic’s offensive posts.
My perception of Michael Jackson hasn’t changed. But that’s also because I always had my doubts about him even before Leaving Neverland.
At the same time, just because he is dead doesn’t mean his victims don’t deserve to have their truths, or at the very least, their stories told. The MeToo Movement happened for a reason, and rightfully so. It’s about time we stop our victim blaming, or victim skepticism culture. It’s especially time for our society to realise that we need to be able to hold the rich and powerful to be accountable for their actions. Even the likeable ones. I don’t think enough people realise that those with resources and connections have the power to show you only what they want us to see. Most of the times these celebrities do live behind a facade, with their transgressions hidden away under the carpet. I mean literally Harvey Weinstein. The sad part is, his time only came around the same time his career was at a downturn (see Tulip Fever).
I also think people need to be more sensitive about the mental repercussions sexual abuse victims go through. Child grooming is a thing people. Sometimes it takes years for a survivor to realise that they are not at fault for their suffering, or to be able to connect the harm they are suffering to the childhood abuse they have endured. Most of the time this is only achieved with the help of an objective third party via therapy.
I also don’t believe that the criminal court justice system is 100% accurate. So yes I do have my doubts about Jackson’s acquittal. Not that we will ever know the objective truth surrounding his scandal. I don’t think we ever will. But his alleged victims need to be respected and listened to. There’s enough to have a reasonable doubt.
