  • And more on the movie re Thai boys. I got to say that “crazy rich Asians” feels like a very different kind of pic. Or at least I have to hope it is...

  • Why does he hate Scarlett Johansson?!

  • I'm glad to hear that, those boys deserve to have the store told. And, The Rescuer that died also deserves recognition. This is not something that should have ever happened and I'm glad to see that they came together the way they did to resolve the problem. I just think that if they going to make a movie

    I'm glad to hear that, those boys deserve to have the store told. And, The Rescuer that died also deserves recognition. This is not something that should have ever happened and I'm glad to see that they came together the way they did to resolve the problem. I just think that if they going to make a movie of it that the families on both sides should be compensated well.

  • I have followed the development of this story. It’s really quite dramatic. Someone even lost their life trying to save those trapped in the cave. And yes hopefully this will not be another one of those white trash movie. I’m really excited to watch Crazy Rich Asian. I saw its preview and the storyline

I saw its preview and the storyline do happen in real life for some rich but not so crazy Asians. Arrange weddings especially for Chinese is a normal thing. If the director can capture the heart and soul of the Thai cave story and eliminate as much of Hollywood as he can then I’m all for it.

  • these boys haven't even been out the cave a week yet. I think everyone needs to settle down for just a minute. With that being said are these boys gonna benefit from having their story told or are we just telling the story to put money back in Hollywood

  • It’s kind of interesting, I was just talking with a friend when this was happening and we were wondering how long it would be before Hollywood pounced on it. We both figured they’d at least wait a week before jumping in.... guess we were both wrong. Hopefully all those involved get some sort of compensation

  • It feels full of the hostility toward the Hollywood.

    Some of positive and negative side are mixed up where the Thailand rescue operation should have been focused on.

    Hollywood is not all mighty anymore.

    More and more people tilt to Netflix,Hulu,Amazon and etc.
