All civilization has from time to time become a thin crust over a volcano of revolution.

- Havelock Ellis

Huh? Best Picture? Best Portrayal of Liberals, Yes.

If you know anything about Howard Hughes, you will recognize how disappointing The Aviator is as a film. If you know anything about what entertains, you will realize that at about midway through the movie it all goes to crap, but, of course, that does not interfere with its nomination as best picture for the Oscars. (Theory: The voters only watched half of the movie.)

One scene in the movie is worth seeing by everyone, and that is the dinner scene at the family home of Katherine Hepburn. Perfect, and if you have been fortunate enough to spend time around a quintessential family, you know it is dead-on accurate. Another interesting scenario is how business used the government as a tool to stifle competition, but all in all, the movie is a monumental waste of money and time.

Read a good bio on Howard, and you will be far more enriched about a strange and interesting man.



(But, if you saw the move, wasn’t that a great scene?)
