“INVICTUS IS WELL WORTH SEEING DESPITE THE SPORTS

invictus-poster-meds#69cut

We admit we had to be DRAGGED to see “Invictus,” because we have no particular interest in rugby or South African politics. (By the way, the word “Invictus” is Latin for “unconquered” – it’s the title of a poem from 1875 about never giving up.) Were WE surprised! We almost forgot what humanity Clint Eastwood brings to his movies. Sentimental Eastwood made the story light up with many personal and touching moments. It turned out to be both educating and engrossing. Matt Damon is uncharacteristically hunky as the team captain. It was also interesting to watch Morgan Freeman (who was excellent as usual) conceal his paralyzed hand. Hopefully it will heal eventually.

    Top flight actors. One of the best directors in the bus. Not surprised by the outcome. A movie worth watching.

    Why does Morgan Freeman get a pass on the allegations that he had a sexual relationship with his granddaughter? His acting ability doesn’t negate something that is morally wrong.

    Actor Morgan Freeman has been having an affair with his step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines for more than ten years, according to the National Enquirer. E’Dena would have been just 17 years old when they began their secret relationship that has been revealed in the nasty divorce battle between the actor and his wife, Myrna Colley-Lee.

    “Myrna said E’dena told her that when she was a teenager, she and Morgan went to dinner at a friend’s house one evening. Both had been drinking, and when they returned home, Morgan attempted to have sex with her. They stopped just short of having intercourse,” the source, a close family insider, told The Enquirer.

    “E’Dena explained to Myrna that she stopped Morgan from going any further.”

    The plot thickens. E’Dena and Morgan’s relationship continued and not only ended his 25 year-old marriage but also put an end to his relationship with longtime mistress Mary Joyce Hays. One woman will never be enough for some men!!

    “It’s not technically incest, because they are not related by blood…[but] Morgan is trying desperately to keep his divorce out of open court so all the shameful facts won’t become public.” HAH!

    Going back to the movie, I want to give some credit to the writer, Anthony Peckham. He is a professional colleague of mine, and in fact, is associate producer of my documentary. A wonderful man! Check out the movie at

    I boycott perv Woody Allens movies and I will not see any more Morgan Freeman movies. People in America need to shun these perv’s and then others might think twice before bad behavior ruins their careers…instead we deify them.

    Apartheid was a little more than “South African politics.” You’ve just proven yourself to be as shallow and ignorant as the people you write about.

    I Found the Movie really boring and it almost put me to sleep and I waited for something to happen and it seems like the movie was really bland and lacked attention and it would had been better going straight to t.v. instead and when I left the theater..I thought what a waste of time and yes it is based on a true story but it was really boring and I would not want to see it again.. Sorry but this movie really sucked and Yes it would had been better to have the story told by the real people who had that history instead of turning it to a movie.

    The point of view that was made is that this man shares what he has with others and really cares about the people around Him and even thought he has been done wrong, He turns around and makes the rest of his life right by telling his story to the world and then on top of that takes care of people around him…Is love and kindness in its pure form and that is heart and pure joy coming out of his soul and spirit.
