Was Little Women 2020 or late 2019. That was probably the best movie I saw last year, if it doesn't count then I think it defaults to Birds of Prey, lol.

This comment is a bad comment. The whole concept of rape is the lack of consent and you might not have intended this but the language you're using sounds victim blaming.

Harvey Weinstein tried to do something with her and she said no and through luck, fate or physical ability was able to make that no stick and her reward for that was she had fewer jobs available to her.

Weíre there allegations of HW trying to rape Dunst? Iíd be slightly surprised as she is a-list and most of his victims werenít - he needed that power differential to exploit.

There's reports that her agent warned her against being alone with him, but she hasn't said Weinstein had done anything to her. But he blacklisted Renee Russo and Ashley Judd for turning him down and this list of people who accused him of some sort of misconduct

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvey_Weinstein_sexual_abuse_cases

also includes Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett so I don't think there was anyone who he would have considered too famous to assault.

Edit Jesus: Heather Graham, Salma Hayak, Helena Bonham Carter. Kirsten Dunst is just about the only actress not on there.

It's weird and gross but a lot of people get off to poo poo that's way worse if any of this is even true.

Oh god no, it's so much worse. I'm putting part of it in a spoilered link, because it's honestly a bit disturbing and I don't want it automatically inlined. It's a pattern of both emotional and physical abuse, and there's a lot of texts from a lot of people, so a poo poo ton of people would have to be lying about Armie Hammer for it not be terrible.

You just let the algorithm make impossible ethical choices, thus absolving the programmer of any moral accountability.

Operation Gladio by Paul L. Williams

A friend of mine is reading it and sent over that excerpt.

It's about the CIAs operations in Italy and how they financed fascist terrorist groups with drug money. Completely nuts and somehow involves both Frank Sinatra, a kooky far-right Masonic off-shoot, and the Pope.

I need to read it myself.

I would check the sources, I'm not gonna say the CIA wouldn't do that because they definitely would've, I just question their basic competency to be able to claim that kinda death count.

Outside of when they directly fund foreign militaries they struggle to kill that many people in South America and Africa. I kinda think they'd act a little more cautious in Italy.

Then again it's the CIA "we just spent 4 years and hundreds of thousands of American lives defeating fascism in Italy, we should absolutely try and bring it back immediately, there will be no consequences down the line for us or the country we're supposedly trying to protect" seems like exactly something they would do.

Worst documentary I've ever seen was What the Bleep do we know?

But that one was at least funny because there's a framing fictional narrative with Marlee Matlin that tries to hide the fact that she's deaf and the people I was watching it with got very upset that I "spoiled" it by immediately exclaiming "oh, it's that deaf actress, I love her" when she first appeared.

She's like the most recognizable deaf person in America. She won an Oscar, she was on West Wing and Dancing with the Stars.

It's not dubbed, it's an American co-production from Warner Brothers, co written by an American. All the sound was recorded later, like how they do with Spaghetti Westerns a lot, which is why it seems dubbed, but it was shot from an English language script.

Are the "Unrated, Extended Cut!" of comedy movies always worse?

Since the plots of most comedies are threadbare enough you could probably cut them even shorter and they'd still be coherent (though often less funny) the extended cuts are almost always adding back in stuff that the director or producer thought was funny, but not as funny as what was in the theatrical release.
