You have been muted by x because the facts you state are insulting to ignorant people & free speech doesn’t exist here, but thought police do. By the way grasshopper, Hello to you.
No insults have been traded & stating facts are not insults, no matter how inconvenient the truth of the fact. Display the evidence of the accusation amidst the vulgar slang personal attacks posted throughout the site & an apology shall be yours. Fail to make display the evidence amidst the prevailing hate-speech & the debt of formal apology is yours. Have a nice day.My love for films led me to discover primewire many years ago. Lost touch with it 3 years ago, then rediscovered this new version of the site.
Retired musician, awkward, shy, private, dorky & I've got terminal seriousness without a funny bone in my body. Which is why I love comedy so much. ☺
I think as long as we're here, we might as well be good to each other & spread good vibes whenever possible. Life is too short.
If I've reviewed a show & you feel compelled to respond, just send me a PM. The review section is for reviews only & it's rude to hijack that area for a conversation, so just send me a note instead.
I only ever look at that area for reviews only, not conversations & I never revisit anything I've already reviewed.
Family. Films. Fun. Music. Always music.

Good things are worth repeating. From gsaint:
The political class serve their constituents; the donor class, the hyper rich, and the major corporations. Elected polititians are dependent on money and favours from the rich and major corporations.Therefore, governments favour rich elites. “Who pays the fiddler calls the tune”. Journalists have been sucked into big news corporations. Corporate journalism reflects and protects the interests of the major corporations. This includes illegal wars, suppression of labour, paltry taxes on the rich and corporations whilst the working classes bear the heaviest load, weak or non-existant regulations and the decimation of social programs which were designed to protect ordinary people. Corporations are strictly heirarchical and anti-democratic. Who then defends the interests of ordinary people? Frankly, no one. It falls to artists, writers and entertainers. It is their right duty and proper occupation to enlighten, examine, and expose.
Comedian and keen observer, George Carlin:
“The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. …The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.”0 Comments
Good things are worth repeating. From gsaint:
“They make a desolation and call it ‘peace’.” Writers in the ancient world often attributed their own writing to others. The gospels are an example. Roman historian, Tacitus, was a member of the richest elites in Ancient Rome. Nevertheless, he wrote a scathing critique on empire. Utilising as background the Roman occupation of Britain, Tacitus attributed this speech to his warriors and people, by a Caledonian chieftain. It is an indictment of all empires, from Sumer to CNN, from Byzantium to Bezos, from Ghenghis-Kahn to Goldman-Sachs:
“You have not tasted servitude. There is no land beyond us and even the sea is no safe refuge when we are threatened by the Roman fleet … We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. Today the furthest bounds of Britain lie open—and everything unknown is given an inflated worth. But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans. It is no use trying to escape their arrogance by submission or good behaviour. They have pillaged the world: when the land has nothing left for men who ravage everything, they scour the sea. If an enemy is rich, they are greedy, if he is poor, they crave glory. Neither East nor West can sate their appetite. They are the only people on earth to covet wealth and poverty with equal craving. They plunder, they butcher, they ravish, and call it by the lying name of ‘empire’. They make a desolation and call it ‘peace’”.”0 Comments
