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 Snake Outta Compton: finally, the hip-hop monster movie the world's been waiting for - 18 October
  • Following the hallowed path marked out by Sharknado, this bargain-bin effort looks set to push the B-movie to new heights of self-aware silliness. We break down its trailerSharknado is old hat. Lavalantula? Passé. Supergator? Consider yourself retired. If you?re a fan of objectively bad films with stupid names about large animals, which you?ll watch drunk one night because it sounds funny (only to immediately realise that you much prefer films with things like plot and production design), you are in for a treat. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Snake Outta Compton.I mean, I could just stop there. Really, the title is all you need to know about Snake Outta Compton. There?s a snake ? and let?s presume, given our affinity with the genre, that it?s quite a big snake ? and it terrorises Compton. The end. We can also assume that the title came long before the film, and that the budget is so tiny that we?ll only actually see the snake in about three scenes. Continue reading...
  • post French Aids drama BPM shows Hollywood how to capture gay history - 18 October
  • The Oscar-buzzed film is refreshingly queer, filled with an authenticity that sanitised disappointments such as Dallas Buyers Club and Stonewall still fail to include It has been a landmark year for LGBT cinema. From Moonlight?s Oscar victory to the triumphant Sundance premieres of gay romances God?s Own Country and Call Me By Your Name; from the transgender breakthrough of Chile?s A Fantastic Woman to the mainstream politicking of Battle of the Sexes, we?re seeing a wider-than-ever array of approaches to sexuality on film, no longer confined to the arthouse fringe.

  • post My Little Pony: The Movie review ? horsing around in cloud cuckoo land - 18 October
  • Emily Blunt lends her voice to the latest outing for a featherlight franchise that nods to minipops feminism while it flogging its kid-friendly merchandiseThe Hasbroisation of cinema continues apace, although after the relentless din of five Transformers and a Battleship, it?s almost a relief to be confronted with something of a more bucolic stripe. Scholars of the MLP canon should be advised that this full-length animation abandons the comparatively hip Equestria Girls strand of 2015?s Friendship Games ? wherein the ponies were magicked into smart-talking college students ? in favour of a return to the cloud cuckoo land from where the franchise comes. Thus we find earnest purple nag Twilight Sparkle?s efforts to stage the annual Friendship festival sabotaged by underbrushed outsider Tempest Shadow ? the latter voiced by Emily Blunt, who must have really loved these toys as a child to have wound up in this vicinity.

  • post Carry on up the Kremlin: how The Death of Stalin plays Russian roulette with the truth - 18 October
  • Armando Iannucci?s new film is a romp through some of the darkest days of the 20th century. But, asks one historian, is farce really the best way to understand the dictator?s murderous regime ? or its legacy in Russia today?My first memory of the outside world was watching my parents as they heard an announcement on the radio that Joseph Stalin was dead. The news was greeted not with relish but with awe and apprehension. The Soviet dictator was a colossal figure in the mid-20th century, even in the west. His death on 5 March 1953 was a reference point not just for the Soviet people but for the wider world. Now it is history.
    That is until now. With The Death of Stalin, director Armando Iannucci has brought the story surrounding the dictator?s last hours and the political scramble among his potential successors to a modern audience. The subject is a strange choice. Where the suicide of Hitler in the bunker has a squalid drama, captured effectively in the 2004 film Downfall, the death of Stalin has to have the drama squeezed out of it, drop by drop. He did not take his own life nor, as far as the evidence suggests, did anyone else. He died of natural causes at his dacha outside Moscow, surrounded by his fearful and sycophantic court.

  • post Turning to the dark side: is Luke Skywalker really the villain of Star Wars: The Last Jedi? - 17 October
  • In the new poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill?s character looms menacingly in the background ? just like his dear old dad Darth Vader used toWhen giant Snoke told us last time out that there had been an ?awakening?, most Star Wars fans assumed the alien overlord must be referring to Daisy Ridley?s proto-Jedi Rey and her madcap Force visions. But it?s becoming increasingly obvious in the run-up to Rian Johnson?s The Last Jedi that disturbances in the Force are more insidious and potentially wide-ranging. First came last week?s final trailer for the middle part of the new Star Wars trilogy, in which Ridley seems to be cosying up to Adam Driver?s sinister Kylo Ren. And this week there?s been plenty of talk online to the effect that Luke Skywalker himself might finally be set to turn to the dark side, 40 years after we first met the Tatooinian farm worker with the big dreams and impressive knack for bullseyeing womp rats.
