LIH Editorial: 10/01-10/06

1 Oct

Frequent and Appreciated Visitors,

Because we’ve seen a lot of sites talk about the subject of censorship, we thought we would discuss the topic here on LIH.    Though you rarely see really obnoxious comments on our site you might assume that we are rigorous censors of the site.  We are not.  Actually that doesn’t mean we have never seen a stinging retort here.  They have occasionally been lodged here, but to our surprise most of our readers understand we are trying to understand the Hollywood community more than launch toxic snarks.

Even our more critical articles are attempts to understand the ideas, projects, and artists whom contribute to this industry, and if we feel it’s necessary we condemn, yet we do in ways we think are appropriate.  Furthermore we do not identify with the tabloid media.

  • Yes, studio Hollywood misleads the audience
  • Innuendo that contradicts film themes is ignored
  • Entertainment product is all we’re really interested in.
  • We’re Cinefiles, yet we will question the industry when needed
  • We don’t feel we are being attacked or compromised by the industry.
  • Any “insider” information we are not privy to is considered not our business.
  • Multi-billion dollar industries rarely allow for the scoops that some sites suggest.

Any site that tells you many of these reveals are probable, is probably lying to you.  You may notice a lot of our articles and columns turn on researched material, informed journalism or criticism. We do this, as often as possible, to guarantee you an objective evaluation.

And to our surprise, most of our readership seems to understand this is what we think.  Believe it or not that limits the amount of censorship necessary at anytime.  Also our filters block porn, verbal vulgarity, and derogatory language.

We appreciate your comments, so feel free to express yourself at anytime.  You may likely see some big changes at LIH in the next few months and we would love to receive your priceless feedback.  All of us were at onetime concerned bloggers and we really need your input to enhance the quality of our site.

Genre Test:

In recognition of “Dredd 3D’s” high critical evaluation yet poor box office reception, please identify these futuristic policemen from the SCI-FI action movies they appeared in.

    If I were to take a guess I believe IMDB would be the best route for guessing these acting celeb’s names, their movies, and their character names.

    4. Judge Dredd 5. Robocop

    How am I doing? 🙂

      You are doing fantastic! You nerd (in a good sense) your demonstrating advanced placement performance. I believe these two are the hardest because the actors are wearing masks! These actors are really hard to identify.

      The correct character is Judge Dredd played by Karl Urban. The movie and story he appears in is “Dredd 3D.”

      The other movie and story the other actor appears in is “Robocop.” The correct character is Officer Alex J. Murphy played by Steven Weller.

      I’m really impressed. 🙂

        • Comic Relief October 2, 2012 at 6:24 PM #

          Your cool; no one asked for the actors. That was bonus for the exceptional performance.

              The chapeaux is exquisite yet it’s hard to find them out of season in the west. That would not be fair.

              I was, as long as you maintained your power button or an auxiliary power cord, I was going to give a life time supply of power reboots, to support your favorite computational device.

              If you neither maintained the button or the cord I was going to spend 3 weeks excavating the finest route to the most advanced cleaning chemicals known man. They will not only optimize the glare on said computational device but also guarantee the user interface can be read with the sharpest luminosity. I would only do this for someone who demonstrated exceptional thoughtfulness and scholarship when completing this test.

    O.K. I’m still impressed but it was 1976. You should know he played the character Logan. He did this in the movie “Logan’s Run.”

    #2 is Arnold. although I don’t know what movie. You know this is really bad……I’m in the industry and I suck at movies. That’s it, I’m going to marry a cinephile! Solves my problem….now off to find one……

    • Open Book October 3, 2012 at 7:53 PM #

      Hmmm! Paris when u get married u inherit problems as well. Hahahaha!

  8. parisienne October 2, 2012 at 9:44 PM #

    is #4 an actual photo of a person or a copy and paste? The proportion of his head to his body is all wrong looking.

    5) sylvester stallone – judge dredd. I will not be seeing the remake. I am tired of remakes. Next they will be remaking Twilight. (I should keep my mouth shut) HOLLYWOOD YOU LACK ORIGINALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    6) Robocop- the original starring Peter Weller.

    7) Jean-Claude Van Damme. He was in Expendables 2 and is now very unfortunate looking. Way to much plastic surgery.
