Re: Global warming is NOT a science

Re: Book of Job

Gaffo: a quick search on Google found this (and many other references) when I typed in the term "resurrection in the Koran": In Islam, no one will go scot-free; all will be held accountable for their transgression in a higher court of law, wherein no one is wronged and all are given proper sentence...

Patton https://youtu.be/YrtS2_TfbeYAetixintro George C Scott is amazing in this movie. I agree, buy at the end of the day, he fails to go that final step into portraying Patton as the idiot that he was. Patton wanted to press on to Moscow. The world would have been a different place if he had done ...

Well Al Pacino's hammy acting and ugly voice certainly aren't to everyone's taste. stick with Serpico, or Dog Day Afternoon. he goes from good to horrible...

This is one of the 20thC greatest films, and arguably Kirk Douglas' and Kubrick's best.
