Ron Howard Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 I agree with Robert regarding "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". Imagine that classic reworked with (of all things) a KEY PARTY for wife swapping at the beginning(!!) Can you imagine what Dr. Seuss would have thought of that? -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on May 31, 2012, 4:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Reply to Soggy 9000: I guess you were referring to me about the political comment. I agree that we don't need another political site and if you look at some of my other posts from way back I have stated just that. Please re-read this post. I wasn't attacking him for his political views. I assume most have political views. I just wish they would keep them to themselves. I assumed that he, along with most others in Hollywood lean left, I just don't want him ramming it down my throat. I don't go to concerts to have someone like Bruce Springsteen tell me his views. He doesn't want to hear mine so what makes him think I want to hear his. His job is to perform and it gives him a platform like few others to make us all aware of his views. The cashier at the grocery store has a platform for a few seconds when you are paying for your groceries. If she told you, I am going to check you out, but first, I want to tell you about Joe Blow and why you should vote for him for President. Most people would probably tell her what she can do with her views but when a celebrity says the same thing we think they are a genius. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 1, 2012, 2:42 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 First point: I'm not sure The Da Vinci Code is "anti-Christian", but I'm quite sure it's grossly anti-factual. (That goes for the book too; Dan Brown's research was criminally sloppy, and there are so many factual errors in the book that it may as well have been about the art and architecture and history of a largely different parallel-universe version of Europe.) But I don't blame Ron Howard for that. Second point: It's unfortunate that so many posts on this site are politically oriented. Can't we examine the merits of a person or TV show or musical group without resorting to attacking (or applauding) their political views? I wish I could find a nice place on the Net where ugly things like politics were not allowed, and where folks like me who are not politically obsessed could enjoy a respite from all that sort of crap. Clearly Bone the Fish is no such site, and that's a pity. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 23, 2011, 10:46 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

5 How can anyone hate how the Grinch Stole Christmas -- Submitted By: (quimbyt) on January 9, 2011, 6:41 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I'd have thought that a masterpiece like Apollo 13 makes one UnBoneAble...but then came The Grinch....so sad -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 27, 2009, 8:31 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 After what he did to Dr. Seuss's masterpiece, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I lost all respect for him. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 9, 2009, 12:14 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Ron Howard had my respect by being one of the very few to escape a stereotype and go on to other successful roles. The character of Opie would normally have killed most actors but not Ron Howard. He went on to star in American Graffiti, and then created the role of Richie Cunningham in Happy Days, and now he's a highly respected director. He lost some points this year when he and Andy Griffith reprised their Mayberry roles of Andy and Opie and filmed the Obama for President ad. Now I'm afraid Ron, Opie, and Richie are all just more of the liberal political hacks you'll find running around in Hollwood. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on June 8, 2009, 3:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I have to say he's never boned. Howard might, at times, have made films I hated, but then he'd follow with something I enjoyed. He's still doing good work. Although not having a part for Clint in The DaVinci Code was inexcusable. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on May 2, 2009, 10:30 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Used to like him and Tom Hanks until they made Da Vinci code movie (anti-Christian). Since then I lost respect for both of them and avoid their work. -- Submitted By: (MarilynB) on April 1, 2009, 12:54 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
