Nice correction. Thank God. Too bad the print version holds this blunder for all posterity.
But whatever, right? Too err is human....
I wonder if they touch on the documented fact that Elvis was on a 3-day meth/speed binge when he came up with the idea; and that he was buzzed t/o their meeting?
Maybe it's on "stand by only" because they're trying to locate an actual film, or even original source material, of Miles Davis as a "legendary saxophonist." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! It's really too bad no one working at Scene, which is a great publication with great people, didn't catch this beyond egregious error. Miles played trumpet, man! Good God, this is absolutely inexcusable. (Cheadle is even holding the right instrument in the picture they used! Sweet Jesus.)
Too bad "miles ahead" is currently on stand by only.
Before Believeland, there was the City of Champions -- which was the moniker carried by the city after the Indians, Browns and American Hockey League Barons captured championships in 1948. An "alternate" logo of Chief Wahoo was created to celebrate the title; eyes peering up at a tilted crown......which was used for a number of years.
An October 1970 Sports Illustrated story on Steve Dalkowski summed up the mythical high-heat legend in a few words: "...(he) threw a fastball so hard that Ted Williams never even saw it. No one else could claim that."
"Blades of Glory" meets "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" on a pommel horse.
Rory was an amazing guitarist. He is missed.
Eddie the Eagle said it all during a press conference at the Winter Games: "Where is it written that the Olympics are only for winners?" An East German newspaper had a different take: "Where would the Olympic Games go if the Eddie Edwards of this world took their place in every discipline and so discredited the sporting achievements of all those who far outstrip them in ability?" The IOC quickly sided with the East Germans....in 1990, a new qualifying standard ("Eddie the Eagle Rule") was established: an athlete had to be in the top 30% of international competitors or ranked in the top 50, whichever was fewer. Edwards never again competed in The Games, though he will always be associated with the joy of competing and doing your best -- against all odds.
Jesse Owens encapsulated his biggest fight of them all --- struggling to earn a living when the color gold did not trump the color of his skin --- through several quotes: “After I came home from the 1936 Olympics with my four medals, it became increasingly apparent that everyone was going to slap me on the back, want to shake my hand, or have me up to their suite. But no one was going to offer me a job,” // "I had four gold medals, but you can't eat four gold medals. There was no television, no big advertising, no endorsements then. Not for a black man, anyway.”
I wasn't really into it from the previews.....but this review made me want to see it!
At least we don't have to wonder what the movie is about.
The bear attack scene was absolutely incredible!
It's "Bowl Season" for Oscar voters and entertainment media types.
Brie. Who the hell names their daughter after cheese, fer chrissakes?
Chuckles the Clown
Is this the same Spike Lee who did "School Days" and "Do The Right Thing" 25+ years ago? Can't be.
If Real Life Chicago wasn't such a deadly nightmare, this movie would be a hilarious satire. But the dialogue alone will send most sensible viewers, even those in Chicago, reeling from the theater in search of a reliable vomit bag.
Sounds like Spike really blew it...better to call it "Did The Wrong Thang"...
Think I'll pass. Thanks for the heads-up...this cinematic abortion sounds terrible. Spike should buy up every print and burn it.
Chuckles the Clown
Complimentary explorations of the sordid era of U.S. history chronicled in "Trumbo" include the book "Being Red: A Memoir" by Howard Fast and the 1983 movie "Daniel".
Dan Rather - the egomaniac who believed he should be treated like a rock star - was on full display years before "the fall".....in September 1987, he walked off the temporary set in Miami due to the start of CBS Evening News being preempted for U.S. Open tennis coverage. The network failed to transmit a picture for six minutes....until the executive producer finally convinced Rather - who also held the lofty title of managing editor - to get back to work.
