Re: The Lawsuits Thread

I am frankly fed up with all of this...since the Heard business all kinds of lowlives have been creeping out of the woodwork. The press love this sort of thing...and the internet is sadly full of trolls. Here in the UK you might have heard of the case of a court battle between the parents of a serio...

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Wow ...... he looks so good !!! He is the perfect actor for the character of Grindelwald !!! I can't wait to see this great movie !!! :myheart: Ditto. Although I love Johnny as the good guy some of his best roles are when he is playing scary characters. Two of my favourites - Sweeney Todd and Agent...

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers)

I might be the only one who feels this way,but Johnny really shines playing bad guys - Sweeney Todd (although he is more like a victim) George Jung, John Dillinger....and my particular favourite Sheldon Sands. Cant wait for the Fabulous Beasts sequel. :cheers:

POTC 5 Box Office

Glad it's doing well, both for Johnny and because it's worth it.

To be honest I haven't seen a PoTC film I haven't liked.

POTC 5 Box Office

I saw it midweek, early morning, term time - and there was a very respectable amount of viewers.
This is going to be a hit, mark my words.

I feel sad, he's been so generous to people in the past.

I'll never forget him donating a load of money to Great Ormond Street after they saved Lily - Rose. :sad:

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

I'm glad to hear Rowling herself is enthused about Johnny, maybe that will stem the naysayer tide a bit. She's not the only one feeling bleak about Trump being elected. I hope she's seen Johnny's portrayal. I think of all the actors who've done recent Trumps, his was the one that pulled no punches....

Re: Life After Death Question #19 Prison As A Holding Pen for the Mentally Ill

Here in the UK we are currently undergoing changes to the welfare state which will probably end with mentally ill patients being denied any form of financial support if they are unable to work. As someone who has suffered for 15 years with clinical depression I find this both unfair and highly distu...

Re: Life After Death Question #1 - Coping

This sounds a bit off topic, but it really isn't! My lovely dad, who sadly is no longer with us, worked for a construction firm which had the job of renovating a Victorian prison in our home city. During digging they unearthed the bones of men who had been hanged and buried without ceremony in the p...

Re: Life After Death: Question #2 America Has Changed

As a whole, I think acceptance/tolerance of those that are different still varies a great deal. It would appear that we accept other people, beliefs, music, political views, etc., more now, because technology has made us more aware of its existence. But that same technology still spews as much hatr...

This smacks of guilt - the guilt of the people in charge. They know they got the wrong men, which is why they've taken steps to prevent them ever suing.

Re: Life After Death: Tidbit #2 Death Penalty

Does anyone remember the Derek Bentley case?

That was one of the worst miscarriages of justice in the UK and what makes it so horrific is that they knew Derek Bentley was innocent - they just wanted a scapegoat.

Re: Life After Death: Tidbit #2 Death Penalty

What I do like about the US justice system is the 'sliding scale' of murder charges - murder in the first, the second and so on, therefore someone who cold bloodedly kills someone isn't judged the same as a person who might accidently kill in self defense. Here in the UK we have a 'one size fits all...

Re: Life After Death: Tidbit #2 Death Penalty

The problem is we go too far one way or the other. The amount of people hanged/electrocuted in the past beggars belief, especially as many of them were either innocent or convicted of minor crimes. If you were poor or the wrong skin colour you didn't stand a chance. I have recently been reading abou...
