Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Movie Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

Sucks. On. Toast.

The movie itself is fine, very well done. The plot sinks it.

Supposedly a chick flick, someone should explain to me what is so appealing about a young girl sold to an asshole who initially wants her to train as a geisha, then makes her a slave, goes back to the geisha idea on a bet, all the while sitting passively by while another resident asshole (this one already a geisha) makes the kid's life Hell.

The girl makes it as a geisha, big whoop, I used to think they were entertainers. After seeing this movie I have the idea they're doormats for the rich & famous. What do I know, I wouldn't recognize a geisha if she fell over me.

The high points of the girl's life include; A) having her virginity sold to the highest bidder, B) prostituting herself so the love of her life will get a lucrative contract, C) winning that love so she can be his mistress until death do them part (meanwhile said love is already married with kids).

If my daughter ever wanted a life like that I'd have her committed. Somebody tell me what the appeal of this thing was, the War Department saw it with me and she didn't like it either (when it comes to chick flicks, the WD is an avid/rabid fan).

We'd have been better off getting a Jackie Chan/Jet Li flick.

Fortunately it came via Netflix so we didn't spend an arm and a leg to see the thing.

I'm in complete agreement Subvet. I just missed where the Commisioner was married with kids. The only thing that made me wake up was Ted Levine aka Stottlemeyer in "Monk" and Buffalo Bill in "Silence of the Lambs".

That movie sucked worse than Barney Frank, and had the same morals.

I have noticed this sort of thing! You have a movie where a woman gets treated like dung, is sexually exploited and pines for some jerk who's going to ruin her life, and it's supposed to be romantic or something.

I think that part of the problem with our society is that many women have this expectation that they should be beautiful tragic heroines who get treated like a doormat.
