Raven, I am one of those women on anti-depressents and I have learned to face my fears. They are never as bad as I imagined. I guess I am a truth seeker, that is the only way to identify a problem or wrong and try to at least learn from it and try to change it or bring something positive from it. Th...

DITHOT, is it true that while being very sensual, the typical Bollywood movie doesn't even have kissing scenes in it? Just longing looks? Lalita Bakshi was interviewed on GMA and I think that is what she said. Seemed odd to me.

Hunter's public persona served him well, true it turned some people off of his writing, but maybe he felt that people who only saw the wild antics and didn't bother to look beyond them to his real work wouldn't get it anyway. The people who looked beyond the wildness to find a brilliant mind and tru...

In the Lisa Auman case that was just plain wrong what happened. I think when Hunter witnesses something that is just wrong he has to speak out. To protect his friends, family or even a complete stranger. He has the power to make a difference with his writting and the people he has in met through th...

I believe his truthfullness was a big inspiration to people. He wasn't afraid to tell the truth about Nixon, the Hell's Angels or anyone else. Sometimes he suffered the consequences of that truth telling. He was beat up by the Hells Angels, watched by the local and national law enforcement agencies ...

The scenes that I am most looking forward to seeing are when Charlie finally get the golden ticket and tells his family. Also the first look inside the factory, can't wait to find out what Tim Burton and the set designers have created. I am also curious about the part where Willy goes into the jungl...

First of all I loved the squirrels, I can't wait to see that in the movie. Who would of thought they could teach so many squirrels to sit still and do what they were trained to do. :eyebrow: This just cracks me up! Squirrel wranglers! I also love the fact that Charlie was rewarded for his good behav...

The first movie seemed kind of light and silly to me. As it should be for kids, I guess. Gene Wilder was deffinatly weird in a dark way, he seemed to be encourging the kids to do wrong by telling them "Oh, no, stop" in a very unconvincing way. I remember how he would open his eyes real wide and it j...

I believe he was commenting on competitiveness in the corporate world. As a research assistant for a timber company, I had to sign a confidentially agreement when I joined the company. We were working on fire resistant and fire retardant materials at our facility and had to be very careful when visi...
