From free to slave and back
————————————

12 Years a Slave
——————
Grade: A
At the Cinemark
Rated R
.
We’ve been warned that if we forget the lessons of history, we are destined to repeat them.Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List” kept the memory of the Holocaust alive, to remind us never to let our guard down.Now Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” does the same for American slavery.In both cases, we are not spared the horrors: the gas chambers in the former, the torture in the latter.And yet, despite the relentless cruelty, some spirits refused to be broken.
.
Meet Solomon Northup, a highly educated New York free man who played the violin. Despite his stature, Northup was drugged, kidnapped and then sold into slavery in 1841. He was renamed by his “masters,” but we’ll refer to him by his birth name, Solomon.The brutality is chronicled in painstaking detail.When he’s captured, Solomon’s back was whipped until he bled.When Solomon confronted the abuse, he was hung from a tree by the neck, with his feet barely touching the mud below. So long as he stretched up upon his toes, he lived. When he tired, the rope would tighten on his neck.
.
On another occasion, he is forced by the demon “master” to whip a young woman. If he declines, everyone will be punished. He complies with tears streaming.Naked slaves are lined up to be sold. Children are torn from their mothers and sold separately.Most viewers won’t see all of “12 Years a Slave.” Periodically, when the abuse was most excruciating, many of us closed our eyes and waited for the silence.The question can be fairly asked whether a film about slavery need be so graphic in its depiction of the suffering. I’m sure the answer director Steve McQueen would defend his unblinking lens for the same reasons Spielberg did: To sear into our minds images that must not ever fade.
.
For me, the verdict is not as absolute: I’m not sure whether images of graphic violence promote peace, and I think there’s a point where that line should not be crossed. Yes, we must remember, but do we need to suffer to do so? I’m still pondering that. But I’ve visited the Holocaust Museum and felt its power, so I understand the need to keep the atrocities from being forgotten or, worse, denied.
.
But beyond the pain is a story of the dignity of those who suffered. McQueen profiles individual slaves such as Patsey, a beautiful slave who is continually raped by the plantation “master.” When he gets jealous, he has her whipped.The pain is so deep, Patsey asks Solomon to drown her, thus sending her to a safe, heavenly place. Solomon refuses, believing they must all struggle to survive. Solomon cannot take a life, even to save Patsey further pain. The script is full of horrendous ethical choices for Solomon. He watches slaves being hung, but does not interfere because to do so means he and others will be hung next. He hides his education because literate slaves are a threat and may also be tortured or killed.
The story is set in Louisiana, notably near the location of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”
.
The hope in “Slave” lies in the integrity and intelligence of the workers even in the face of the mistreatment. They are regarded as “inhuman” and “property,” but they refuse to give up their faith or their kindness.The inhuman ones are those with the whips, not those being whipped – that is the sermon McQueen preaches.Even the “masters” are portrayed with some depth. The plantation mistress is jealous of Patsey, but she seems to sense Solomon’s integrity. One senses a dark but torn soul. And one “master” is portrayed as caring but too weak to stop abuse.“12 Years a Slave” may win Best Picture, and could sweep acting awards, too. Both British stage and screen actor Chiewetel Ejiofor (Solomon) and Yale acting school grad Lupita Nyong’o (Patsey) will contend for Oscars. McQueen may win a couple, too. But the reason to see it goes beyond cinema.
.
Every chapter in world history seems to have its “whipping class,” a group that is misunderstood and mistreated.Those persecuted are always accused of being “different” than the rest. Sometimes it’s color, sometimes religion, sometimes gender, sometimes sexual orientation, sometimes age, sometimes class. In all cases, hate is wrong, a message driven home with tears in “12 Years a Slave.”
.
Atticus Finch said it most simply in Harper Lee’s novel: It will always be a sin to kill a mockingbird.

@Phool.: Good morning to my dear friend Phool. I see you were here earlier. Hope you’re doing great and it was good to read you are not as busy with work right now.
First I must say, OMG, is Justin in the witness protection program? Why in the he’ll is he trying to hide his face. My my, t icky and tacky sure look happy in that car, not. Ticky covering her chin and tacky just about pulled the collar of his jacket to cover his entire face. Talk about doing something he did not want to do. Being in that car with Ticky. I guess
tacky had to pay his debt by coming out to prove they are still a couple, not. This smells like a photo hop to quiet the break up rumor for a few
weeks.

Phool, omg, what Beautiful photos of the Jolie Pitt’s we were lucky to
get. That little Viv has the most beautiful smile and she is so close to ZZ. Brad and Angie looked so happy. Im wishing continued blessings to the Jolie Pitt family. In a few days Daddy will be home. I’m sure they are all counting down the days.

My condolences to the Mandela family.

RIP Nelson Mandela. Because you lived, the world is a better place. Your accomplishments will always be with us. Today is a very sad day.

Big shout out to Phool, Susan, Anustin, Dawne, busted, PT, Jaye, Briseis, Jaye, Premalee, CLINIQUA, QQQQ, NAN, Love the Jolie Pitt’s, FYI, were the morons, Go Figure!, Shi Baby, Jen the hag, Bizzy Bee, plez, Bea, lurker, observer 2, GROUNDCONTROL, juju, vickyfromtexas, Yolly, AWHODAT, and all the fans not mentioned, I’m wishing everyone a beautiful and blessed day.

Good Morning Rose
Sorry didn’t get a chance to reply back to you before I left yesterday. How are you today, such sad news about Nelson Mandela’s passing away, what a great & inspirational man his legacy will live on to aspire many more fighters like him.
.
I see the troll melt down happened right on cue seeing Brad with his family got to hurt , I guess Ticky is still screaming in the ocean and no one is coming to pull her away I have a feeling many might want to push her into the ocean lol.
.
Thanks for giving me the insight of the drug cheats (Tyson) god how creative are these people to cheat a drug test hers looking at you Lance lol.
.
I didn’t realise the decline in viewing figures for the Kardashans well that was expected at some time they already have outstayed their welcome long time ago in my opinion I’m surprised they lasted that long, well here’s hoping they disappear from our screens like Paris Hilton & Snookie did. So Kanye’s also faced the backlash of low ticket sales wow that doesn’t surprise me much.
.
I read about Kanye is now dissing Ralf Lauren today apparently now he’s saying he’ better than RL, Also that he’s angry why people didnt like his last single & video with Kim apparently his words are “I’m famous and frustrated” lol.
I think its a cry for help .

It’s amazing what YOUNG, beautiful women will hit when the guy is shitttin’ gold nuggets. See: Georgina Chapman
——————————-
So true PT but in Georgina’s case I would add she’s got it in twofold, not only “ugly “but also “Purvey” as well.

.
PS I see the depend wearer Tampon still hasn’t answered your fair question you put towards IT “to explain to us how IT knew WWZ bankrupted Viacom” & now the company to come out and say “that World War Z helped to drive a 31% increase in theatrical revenue” LOL, odd isn’t it how the Troll who had been regurgitating months on end about WWZ, now all of a sudden has feigned ignorance and has got nothing to say, not even a peep. I think you need to keep on reminding IT time & time again might jog its already fading memory lol.
.
PPS I think you made Tam$hit unhappy no wonder its stole your moniker and posted a Virus @677.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++==

# 612 Observer2 @ 12/05/2013 at 4:14 pm
Awww, Tiny Tam$hit. You went looking. That’s so sweet.
You’re a day late and a dollar short on the eonline thing though.

………..
LOL O2, remember this is the same Tam$hit who was part of the Posse who wore the “Team Aniston T-Shirts” and still went along to watched Mr & Mrs Smith in cinemas just to make a point, nothing surprises me, all Tam$hit has done is give E-Online’s Brad & Angie story a hit lol.

Maddox, fed up? @ 12/06/2013 at 6:47 am

Maddox wasn’t even there. I think he is sooooo over the photo ops. Hahaha.

@Maddox, fed up?:

ROTFLMAO at yourdumbass.. Maddox was there and there are pictures. I guess you dummies are grasping for anything. And once again you are wrong and look like the fool you are. The Jolie-Pitts were all there together as a family happy and laughing. Enjoying the time together. Now run alone because you have shown your trolling ways and your comment is a total fail.

Brad and Angie are the real deal.

Thank you so much to all the fans who posted links and additional pictures. The JP family looks so happy and relaxed and Shi and Knox are two fearless tykes. Maddox has grown, he’s such a teenager now not a little kid anymore.
All the kids look so happy. Like Angelina said, happy parents equals happy children.

The amount of Trolling the Tabloids do you’d think by know they can tell the diffrence between all the JP Children but NO here we have Maddox and Daily Fail is calling him PAX LOL

Good job, Mom! Angelina Jolie gets a visit from son Pax on the set of Unbroken
———————————-

PUBLISHED: 11:03, 6 December 2013 | UPDATED: 11:03, 6 December 2013

.

She’s been hard at work directing her latest project Unbroken in Sydney, Australia.

But on Friday, Angelina Jolie afforded herself a brief break as she received a surprise visit from son Pax on the set of the movie.

The nine-year-old looked in good spirits as he strolled confidently onto the set to catch up with his mother.

Pax wore a checked shirt and black shorts,grinning widely as he was greeted by cast and crew on the set of the film.

And Angelina also appeared cheered up after seeing her son, sporting a wide smile as she was photographed on the set later in the day.

The 38-year-old stuck to her usual colour palette of all black, wearing a loose-fitting black T-shirt, jeans and scuffed black boots, with a large hat to protect her pale complexion from the strong sun.

She also carried a jacket which she was seen wearing later as the temperatures began to drop.

But it wasn’t only Pax’s visit which cheered Angelina up.

She was later seen grinning from ear-to-ear after being given a gift from one of the actors on the set.

The present, which appeared to be some kind of medal, was presented to Angelina in a navy box, and the actress looked delighted with the gesture.

After thanking the actor, dressed in army greens, Angelina gave him a big hug before continuing with her day of work – which saw her working on an earthquake sequence.

Unbroken is an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 best-selling book that spent 108 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and 14 of those weeks at No. 1.

It tells the story of the life of Zamperini, an Olympic athlete and war veteran who survived a plane crash during the war and floated on a raft for 47 days before being picked up by the Japanese and sent to a prisoner of war camp.
Track prodigy Zamperini performed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics at age 19 and even though he didn’t win a medal his excellence in the final lap of the 5,000 meter race impressed Adolf Hitler so much that the dictator insisted on meeting the runner personally.

Angelina, 37, spoke previously about how the plight of Zamperini affected her.

She said: ‘It will be hard to make a film worthy of this great man. I am deeply honoured to have the chance and will do all I can to bring Louie’s inspiring story to life.

‘Everyone involved in the film shares this deep responsibility. Like all readers of Laura’s book and all people who love and admire Louie, I am a fan who has learned so much. He has made me a better person.’

And Louis added: ‘Angelina is a human dynamo, and I know she will tell this story in the right way. I’ve received so many letters and talked to so many people who say that Laura’s book has helped them when they were going through hard times.

‘I believe the movie will reach even more people with that message.’

Angelina’s directorial debut was 2011′s In the Land of Blood and Honey, a love story set in the midst of the 1990s Bosnian war.

As her directorial role for Unbroken was announced earlier this year, Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson and co-chairman Donna Langley said in a joint statement: ‘In her life and in her work, Angelina has embraced stories and causes involving great struggle and triumph over tremendous odds and the basic human condition.

‘She has a real ability to illustrate the strength in human spirit which will be essential in telling Lou’s story of survival and great heroism.’

Unbroken arrives in cinemas on January 16th 2015.

New Angie thread

@Phool.: Good morning Phool. We are so lucky to live in the time and to witness such a courageous man. Mr Nelson Mandela.

Phool, Brad was so happy to be with his family. You know as soon as “Fury” wraps Brad will be high tailing it out of London to be with his family. You can see the love between the family shining through. I saw over at ENews great photos of the family. I cannot believe how big Mad and Pax have grown.

Girl, about Mike Tyson, using a fake peen to pass a drug test. That what drug addicts do, they lies and cheats. Let me tell you something. We have found drugs, in light switch, ceiling tiles, and human cavities, bottom of garbage cans, ect. when you work in that field, you trust no drug addict they will sell their mother for the next fix.

Phool, KW is off his rocker. All he has to do is get a glass of water and take his medication. For him to say “good taste is a gift, bad taste is a privilege”. And “I think the world could be saved by design …made more ergonomic”. What the he’ll is he talking about. The funny thing is, KK is just going with his crazy rants blindly. She had a 72 days wedding already. I’m wishing her luck with this one,.

I see a troll is here bright and early talking nonsense about MADD is fed up with his family. mad is seen with his family as plain as day. He is seen in ENews photos along with his mother, father, brothers and sisters. It sucks to be a troll. Trolls are crazy.

++++++++NEW ANGIE THREAD+++++++++++++++++

Good morning J-P fans.
Joining fans in sending my condolences to the Mandela Family.
@Phool, previews start March 8th @ Barrymore Theatre.
