How does being the president of the NRA rank along side being a rapist, an anti-Semite, or a hypocritical jackwagon?
I agree, though. Omega Man took names.
What i meant was that He had his politics. But they strongly, differed from the message in Ben Hur.
Some people are so anti-guns that they despise this man.
I once argued with a complete stranger over Ben Hur, who said he won't watch it because Heston was in the NRA.. He couldn't separate the individual from the art.
Doing the right thing would be not purchasing this movie. I watched this about a month ago, it definitely doesn't stand up to the test of time.
Yep. Even at the time of release it was merely OK... but really, anyone planning on buying this movie almost surely likes it already and our opinion won't matter (and it shouldn't). Good deal if this movie floats your boat.
Charlton Heston was the president of the NRA.
But he was damn fine actor. And Ben Hur is one of the greatest movies ever made. That and the Ten Commandments severely conflicts with the man's politics. Also Omega Man kicks all sort of ass.
Roman Polanski, well we all know what he did, and how he's never been tried for the crime. But his films like Rosemary's baby, Chinatown and The Pianist have inspired many filmmakers such as the Coen brothers, Darren Aronofsky and Wes Craven.
Mel Gibson. Heh. What can you say about this guy at this point. Does it let me enjoy Braveheart, the Road Warrior or Lethal Weapon any less?
Sometimes you gotta seperate the art from the individual.
I was a huge fan of Spike Lee. But ive known he was a douche ever since he scheduled a lecture at a local college here in South Florida. I waited for weeks to hear the man talk. And he cancelled at the last minute to go to the Heat Game cause the Knicks had made it to the Playoffs. Dissapointing hundreds of students and fans. For a Basketball game.
Do the Right Thing is still in my top ten favorite films ever made.
Why'd you leave Woody Allen off the list?Because his movies aren't good enough or marrying his step-daughter wasn't sick enough?
