"BRICK LANE" IS A WELCOME RELIEF FROM MINDLESS VIOLENCE

If you’re overdosed on superheroes and ear-splitting special effects, take a break and see a movie with characters and a plot this weekend. “Brick Lane” is a modest neighborhood in London that a young girl from Bangladesh is forced to move to for an arranged marriage in the 1980’s. The plotline follows her evolution as a person as the world around her changes. It’s a fascinating glimpse into a different culture and worth seeing on a big screen.

    Janet, most people just p2p movies these days. Nobody in their right mind pays the ridiculous cost to go to the theatre.First of all it’s a rip off and second most movies suck.

    The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK “seems unavoidable”.
    Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4’s World at One that the UK has to “face up to the fact” that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.
    Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion.
    For example, Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in a Sharia court.

    12:40 p.m. — Why do you keep showing up on this site if it’s all too dull for you? Frankly, you’re a bore.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
