I guess most of you, from my last journal entry, are either not familiar with Lewis Black or really don't like his style of comedy.
C'est la vie.
I've wondered recently, after watching numerous action and espionage movies, why Russia still allows motion picture companies to enter their country and make films where Russia is the primary bad guy. Considering what is going on with Russia, the US, and Ukraine, Putin still allows movie footage to be shot in his country. Are there any Russian movie companies who come to the US to shoot footage of America to make movies where the US is the primary bad guy? I'd actually be surprised by that one. I'm not sure if anything was in motion leading to Putin invading the Ukraine while they were shooting footage for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit but it sure didn't have any effect on Paramounts' time there. I mean after Russia shut down all the McDonalds in Moscow for "health reasons", in connection to the Ukraine situation and sanctions piling up, will US motion picture companies still ask Russia if they can film occasionally in their fair country? Weird.
