That man gives me the absolute creeps.
He talks like a three-year-old and utters nonsense and lies.

You share the sentiments of many here. LOL

I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude.  I am impressed with his speed in enacting many of his campaign promises. That's the business man in him.  We've been used to him for many years and he's always blustered. He's no different in that regard than he ever was. We're used to it. You just have to wade through that to get down to the meat of his words.  I think people like that about him.

Notice I have Trump Tweets in the upper right had box on this page.  I do like that he's keeping that up.  It gives little chance for the media to put their spin on things.

I've been trying to have a wait and see attitude, but I don't think Trump is right in the head. He scares me.

I arrived at LAX from London on Sunday afternoon and had no idea of the protestors that were outside of the customs and immigration area of the international terminal. I noticed that there was a huge backup to clear customs, but that isn't much different from any day at LAX. It wasn't until my friend and I went up the ramp to leave customs that we heard a low rumble. As we turned the corner we began to see what all the noise was all about.

7,000 people were jammed inside, outside the terminal...blocking the roadway and parking structure. Craziness. Lawyers with signs saying "I'm a lawyer and will help you!", people chanting and people yelling into megaphones. Thousands of protestors. 

My friend and I couldn't get out of the terminal. We just wanted to get home after a 11 hour flight and we couldn't get past the crowd. Finally a police officer with a big gun helped us get through. It was frightening.

He scares me, too.
He's like a child with ADHD, talking all the time, doing mischief, and using words like 'very nice' and 'we promised you we would ...'.

We were thinking of visiting the USA again in 2018, but now we're hesitating.
Even a legitimate visum can be doubted if you have the misfortune to encounter an overzealous immigration officer at the airport!

Luce, I highly doubt that you and Hermy will have any problems getting through US customs and immigration!   :fav001:

I think you should go ahead and plan your trip!  Come to San Diego and stay with me!!! :fav288:

NYC or New York State?  NYC has so much to offer...museums, Broadway shows, great walking tours . Chicago is good too, but Detroit?!!!  Why Detroit?  The city is absolutely awful.  The only thing that might be of interest in Detroit is actually in Dearborn MI and that is Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford museum.

I should ask first what you're interested in seeing.  Washington DC has a lot to offer as far as museums.

The lakes?  The Great Lakes?  All five?  What about Niagara Falls?  You can tick off 2:  Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in one fell swoop!  Chicago is on Lake Michigan.  That would leave Lakes Huron and Superior. 

So I guess CA is not in your travel plans... :fav286:

Skip Detroit. Even Americans don't visit there. It's blighted, although, rising from the ashes.

I'd go to Arizona and the Grand Canyon.  I've missed that in my life.

Well, the plans are only in the very beginning.
Okay, not Detroit.
Hermy is the organizer, I'll leave it to him.

Yep, I think Paul would agree about Detroit. He lived in one of the suburbs and never actually ventured into the city!

I'll be leaving for the US four weeks tomorrow. Not looking forward to the immigration queues but can't wait to meet my nephews  :362

You'll be the first in our little group to experience it.  Tell us what it's like.

DCM, if you have ESTA you can skip the long lines and go to the kiosks. If you're flying into one of the less busy airports in the US you might not encounter quite the long lines, but I'm not sure what airport and what customs you'll encounter.

Fly to Dublin and clear customs there before you enter the US, that is the easiest way to do it!

I'm in Săo Paulo, Brazil on a long layover right now. I'm going to be flying home during the Super Bowl, so I will miss watching the commercials...I don't even know who is playing...lol

We do have ESTAs, so hopefully it should be straightforward for us.

The two times that I've been to the US before, we left from Dublin and cleared immigration before boarding. But it was just too expensive for us this time. We're flying directly from Edinburgh to Newark, then a 3 hour stopover before flying to Jacksonville

  • post At the drive-in: Julien Temple's Glastonbury Cineramageddon - 22 June
  • One day the film-maker hopes to project movies on to the clouds. But for now he?s launching a drive-in unlike any otherGlastonbury is a lot of things: Britain?s biggest music festival, a hedonistic wonderland, a rally stop for Jeremy Corbyn. However, it?s unlikely anyone would think of it as a cineaste?s paradise.Ok, perhaps that?s a little unfair. The festival?s resident cinema, the Pilton Palais, celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and has seen some notable premieres, most recently of Asif Kapadia?s Amy Winehouse doc. Film, however, has generally been relegated to a supporting role. Continue reading...
  • post The Big Sick review ? Kumail Nanjiani's real-life romcom is a humane delight - 22 June
  • The stand-up comic turned Silicon Valley star teams up with Judd Apatow to tell the charming story of how he met his wifeIf you?re a comic keen to express, in great detail, the many difficulties of your everyday life on screen, then congrats ? Hollywood wants to hear your story, even if a mass audience often doesn?t. The critical success of Louie has led to shows from Tig Nataro, Marc Maron, Pete Holmes, Cameron Esposito, Maria Bamford and Aziz Ansari, all riffing on versions of themselves with mixed, and sometimes under-seen, results. It?s become a strangely overpopulated sub-genre of late, and a feature-length film based on the early days of standup-turned-sitcom star Kumail Nanjiani arrives at a time when it feels as necessary as another superhero reboot.

  • Veteran director takes over after Lego Movie co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller fired two days ago after clashing with studio headsThe Da Vinci Code?s Ron Howard has replaced The Lego Movie?s Phil Lord and Chris Miller as director of the Han Solo spin-off movie, the much-anticipated new instalment of the Star Wars standalone series.According to the Hollywood Reporter, Howard joined the film two days after Lord and Miller were sensationally fired over ?creative differences? with the film?s producers Lucasfilm. Reports have suggested clashes with veteran scriptwriter Lawrence Kasdan were at least partly responsible. Continue reading...
  • post On the set of Edgar Wright?s Baby Driver: ?Everything is fun with Jamie Foxx around? - 22 June
  • Bullitt collides with Barry White in the British director?s most ambitious project to date. Wright and his stars Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm and Lily James explain why this noisy heist is a Hollywood ?unicorn?

    Edgar Wright is in remarkably, unfathomably good spirits. It?s day 23 of a high-pressure shoot for Baby Driver, the director?s latest and biggest film, and Wright is standing on a closed-off portion of a highway in Atlanta, overseeing a frenetic car chase on a scale that easily surpasses anything he?s made before.Wright is casually propped up against one of the many vehicles on the road, wearing a boater and looking like the postcard embodiment of an Englishman abroad. As he excitedly talks about the world he created on paper coming to life, Jamie Foxx walks past in a boilersuit. ?Everything is fun with Jamie Foxx around,? Wright says, beaming at his Oscar-winning star. ?We have Gladys Knight and the Pips playing, so we good,? Foxx replies, one earphone in. Continue reading...
  • post The Graduate review ? Hoffman and Bancroft are as irresistibly watchable as ever - 22 June
  • Attitudes have changed since Anne Bancroft?s predatory seduction of hapless Dustin Hoffman, but this rereleased classic remains a hugely pleasurable experience If ever a movie captured the audience?s imagination with its musical soundtrack, it was The Graduate, that irresistibly watchable 1967 classic, now rereleased in cinemas, starring as Anne Bancroft as the sexy and jaded fortysomething Mrs Robinson, who seduces 21-year-old Ben, played by the young Dustin Hoffman ? that muddled young man whose sentimental education begins only after he graduates college. Simon and Garfunkel?s eerie and sublime The Sound of Silence perfectly captures both Ben?s alienation and bewilderment about what he should do with his life, and then his postcoital disenchantment and self-loathing. And Here?s to You Mrs Robinson, with its gentle reassurance that Jesus loves her, provides a note of final gentleness and forgiveness for this character that is really nowhere in the script. It is, incidentally, very different from Billy Paul?s woozily sensual soul song Me and Mrs Jones, which came out four years later. Continue reading...
