James Brown's last words: 'I'm going away'
ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- James Brown, the legendary R&B belter, a singer and songwriter who created a foundation for funk and provided the roots of rap, a man of many nicknames but a talent that can only be described as one of a kind, is dead.
Brown died early Monday at Atlanta's Emory Crawford Long Hospital of congestive heart failure, his agent said. He was 73.

There goes Christmas...
Gah...

God damn. Tony Scott continually proves he's one of the worst directors in Hollywood.

I'd argue that he's no worse than anything Ed Wood's ever done...


Today, the Godfather Of Soul was laid out for public viewing at the famous Apollo Theater, in Harlem, NY, at noon...
It's 9:22pm, and it's still a mob scene...

Are you saying Ed Wood made Manos: The Hands of Fate? Because he didn't.

Tony Scott doesn't direct movies, he causes problems.

I don't think that's fair. I have an evaluation system for movies, that also applies to directors, producers, etc. It has to do with the correlated expectation of the film vs. how well it actually was. Ed Wood has negative expectation, which is to say that you want the movie to be as bad as possible. If you expect horrible and it delivers, that's a great movie (see Snakes on a Plane). But, if a negative expectation film is any good at all, that is very disappointing (see Spice World).

However, expectation is not merely personal or subjective. A movie by a director like Tony Scott builds expectation merely in the amount of advertising, press, or other publicity that it gets that reinforce a positive image of the film.

Therefore the worst movie of all time was The Postman, but I never saw Battlefield Earth.

Guessing you didn't see "Water World", or "200 Cigarettes", either...

I really didn't think Waterworld was that bad ... and, it was a sitting (floating!) critical target because of breaking budget records. I certainly didn't think it was good, but man... cancer was more fun than 'The Postman', and I know that for a fact 'cause I've done both.

And there you go, I've created a temporal paradox. A minor one, I hope.

well at least now we can live in a world where there's no need to teach our children religion, as it will suffice to say that Christmas (name change pending) will be the day on which we remember the late, great, mr. please please himself.

I always confuse it with Il postino. I understand I should not.

Every time I say, "The Postman" was the worst movie of all time. Someone invariably says, "You mean Il Postino?"
