  • Daniel Day-Lewis's Performance in There Will Be Blood is the Best performance in years

    He makes acting look like a serious artform by the way he really becomes his characters.>You are proving that No Country For Old Men is a better movie then There Will be Blood and that is not what this debate is about.>You are not saying that Bardem's or Tommy Lee Jones' performances were better then Day-Lewis', you are just saying the movie is.>And just to let you know, Day-Lewis has been up for and won more awards then any of the cast of No Country For Old Men.>And in speaking about Gangs of New York, although I too love that movie and his perfomance, Daniel Day- Lewis was very much more cartoonish in it then Daniel Plainview.>Therefore actually discuss something that goes with the debate topic next time.<< That, at this point, is obviously false. Daniel's performance in "Gangs of New York" and "My Left Foot" both were better examples of acting on his part than "There Will Be Blood."...

  • In acting, a person cannot truly become another person.

    I cite Gangs of New York as an example of this phenomenon. He even referred to Neeson as "Priest" ("The Real Gangs of New York"). First is Charles Waxberg, award-winning playwright, director, and actor who currently teaches in New York Universities.

Opinions

  • Should people carry concealed weapons?

    The scene in gangs of new york where the cop leaves his watch in the street and says, dont worry no one will touch it. Head lines on new articles are showing young children getting a hold of their parents firearms that happen to be in their reach and unaware of how dangerous the "toy" they are playing with really is they shoot and kill their playmate or family member. Most people who do commit those crimes are weak, and the only way for them to feel strong is to hurt someone else.

  • In reference to the recent horrific Range Rover-Biker incident, did Alexian Lien have the right to defend himself?

    If everyone pays attention to detail, there will be 100% saying YES Truckers that transport merchandise from New Jersey to New York are aware of these biker gangs. Come on New York we are all watching you do the right thing and make us believe that New York is not a bad thuggish place. As a trucker that would deliver in north jersey and New York I am familiar with these gangs.

    First is was the scourge of the "Irish Race." I suggest you read "Gangs of New York," which really cuts to the heart of the immigration issue back then. So it's all very well for us to say "I'm alright Jack, pull up the ladder" now that we have made our lives in these new lands, but we wouldn't be here if the Celts, Aborigines and Native Americans had taken a different attitude and had successfully defended their borders.: So it's all very well for us to say "I'm alright Jack, pull up the ladder" now that we have made our lives in these new lands, but we wouldn't be here if the Celts, Aborigines and Native Americans had taken a different attitude and had successfully defended their borders.: If you view the history in America, the same hysteria we see with Mexican immigration confounded the US the same way in the past.

  • Interpersonal Utility Comparisons

    Competing entities of force is a bad thing - see the movie Gangs of New York. That's a poor representation of competing entities of force, i would think more like gang wars, or the five families of the New York mafia. :P Everything else is just a polite way of referring to competing gangs.: At 2/26/2011 7:40:29 AM, Cody_Franklin wrote: : : At 2/26/2011 7:35:41 AM, tvellalott wrote: : : : At 2/26/2011 7:18:50 AM, Cody_Franklin wrote: : : : : At 2/26/2011 7:08:34 AM, tvellalott wrote: : : : : : At 2/25/2011 10:47:40 AM, Cody_Franklin wrote: : : : : : We were having a conversation about this in the "Sustaining the Poor" thread, and an odd thought occurred to me.
