we are all watching bad movies and that's why we all hate muslims...
short visioned, short minded. get to read a good book instead of watching movies. First think then say. First get some knowledge. I too generalize sometimes, its a bad habit, and often out of sarcasm. I think its no good because it puts cultures againts each other. So please be careful what you are saying. I am sure that most people don't think that Iranians nor muslims are bad. I am sure, I know...

Quoting Mel.

But, if that film is about the bombing, of the twin towers, I think it is in very poor taste, to make a film about it, right now, with all the tension. It could have waited, for 10 years, or whatever. The US really should be making more efforts with peace making and diplomacy. ;)

Which film are you commenting on? If it is the film "300" - it's based on historical events (the Battle of Thermopylae) which took place around 480BC.

Whether considered in poor taste or not, two movies have been made about 9-11 - "United 93" and Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center". I have not seen either of them and do not wish to do so. For some people, never would not be long enough to wait before making such films while others felt the time was right. I really have no opinion either way.

Movies are movies - you choose to lay your money down to see them or you don't. But, there will always be someone who doesn't feel any particular movie should exist. There will also be those who believe things they see on the silver screen are the absolute truth. Hopefully, the majority are wise enough to delineate between fact and fiction. If it's playing at the local movie theater, take for granted some part of the feature will be fiction. Maybe it's just me...

Elnaz, I think I understand why you are asking that people stop posting in this thread, but as long as the general discussion is not inflammatory nor strayed too far from the original topic, people will be allowed to comment. Threads are not closed because someone doesn't care for what is being said. That is the beauty of discussion and debate. Also, the person who started the thread does not control the thread. For those who do not care for what is being said, the option is to not visit the thread anymore. That is the beauty of choice. I don't think I need to remind anyone to keep the comments civil and topic-related. ;)

Elnaz,
You have had plenty of time to refute or rationally excuse the facts about Iran's theocratic dictatorship and it's murderous ideology, but you spout nonsense or handball the task to your tagteam member Shahabsito.
Why can't you answer my posts 11, 21 and 24.
The Shah (or should I say the Grand Ayatollah) has no answers.
What is farsi for 'dumb and dumber'?
With no answer you cry foul!!!

I did not see where a time limit was proposed for getting replies to the above-mentioned posts. Honestly, I'd be curious how long it would take for people to translate the replies if Elnaz was to post them in Farsi. Since this site is English-based when it comes to responses, I think adequate time should be allowed to those who do not speak English as well as some of the rest of us (even when it is not your first language).

As for the "dumb and dumber" remarks - they stop now. Any further comments such as this, by anyone, will be deleted. (Yes, I'm fully aware who made the comment first.) Such comments are deemed as derogatory and are in clear violation of Forum Rule #1. It does not matter what your personal opinion of someone is, remarks like these, which are not meant in jest, are unacceptable. I guess I did have to remind everyone to be nice. :(
