   MeiDei posted on Movies & Reviews  I recently watched "Last Knights" with Clive Owen & Morgan Freeman. Their characters were very similar to Owen's role in King Arthur and Freeman's role in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Freeman trades his turban from PofT to a dog collar in negative of a priest's collar.
Here's Metacritic's review + those who loved it vs. those who didn't. Better than watching The View, Shep Smith, or grass growing but not so bad as to be funnier than intended.

   Safetydude  I'm not sure about the connection, but the movie is Peter O'Toole in "What's New Pussycat ?"
I can't tell if that's Paula Prentiss.

   MeiDei  What's New Pussycat? is a 1965 American comedy film directed by Clive Donner, written by Woody Allen in his first produced screenplay, and stars Allen, Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss, and Ursula Andress.
Extra pts. for you with naming the actors ... the title is solved also.

   MeiDei posted on Main Page The Lobby  Watched those marchers in Britain calling for Robinson's freedom, odd news to me. Found a background article on it, written by a Brit for National Review. Most imformative + a warning for us.

   Richdet  One is not hearing about the Tommy Robinson case in the MSM. The dog that isn't barking. Why is that? You would think the American media would take interest, especially since the media overseas has been ordered by the court not to speak his name.

One has to conclude that the US media is just fine with taking opponents of Islam and rape gangs as political prisoners. The possibility that this could be a death sentence for Robinson (retaliation by Muslims in jail ) seems okay too, maybe the desired outcome. Certainly a warning for Americans because this is exactly the treatment of government opponents the Left would endorse, once they get that pesky confiscation of weapons out of the way.

I would recommend Mark Steyn's discussion of Robinson:

   Richdet  Or you could watch this. Tucker Carlson discusses the Robinson case with Katie Hopkins a couple of nights ago:

   MeiDei  I saw a video on some website of the marchers shouting something like "free Tommy" - it was a huge scene from an overhead view - similar to what you'd see for a special royal parade; it certainly got my attention. The print media is very selective in the stories it deems of interest & therefore controls the conversation.
Funny that you should also mention Katie Hopkins - a while back a 40-something sent me a video of her in action, I posted it on the Politics wall here, still current on the page. She's a firebrand, well spoken. I missed her on Tucker's program, so thanks for the link.
