    "Aw stop!" - now imagine that being said by Michael's handsome self . . . adds an adorable teen-quality to the pureness of it. LOL With that deep, rattle baritone. Heavens! But an edge of pure innocence - so misleading, I'm sure!



    His voice - like candied sex. "Cut around the meat..."

    It's offensive, I think, to falsely accuse someone of having od'd on something just because you don't think it's possible to die naturally in your 50's. That's a heavy and nasty allegation - one you should be ashamed of. It's possible and it happens.

    Are we going to have these accusations every single time someone dies before they're 'at the right age for it' (what's the acceptable age-cut off, 60?? 70??)
    You are so correct. Another one that comes to my mind was John Ritter who died at the age of 54 from an aortic dissection. Both men left way too early. Never read anything negative about either actors.

    But you realize there is the National Enquirer educated population in America who want to believe that anyone who dies young was popping pills and that Elvis must be alive.

    Horrid racial sterotype was the Green Mile written by stupid hick Stephen King, starring the even stupider Tom Hanks who will do any old piece of s**t script to get in front of a camera, and advance his "star" status.

    Gee lets see - a typical black southern illiterate retarded slave murderer talks like Amos and Andy dies sacrificing himself so Whitey can feel better about himself.

    What a moral.

    What a tragic shame. Duncan utterly dominated the screen in every role he played. With his size, his presence, his voice, the audience focused totally on him. So much talent. He will be sorely missed.

    And he had the amazing ability to save people from their ailments and maladies and in the end gets shafted.

    It's a tragedy - and it's actually based on a classic tragedy storyline that's been redone numerous times. The hero dies (it's a tragedy afterall) and society is shown to be a horrid bane.

    now - why aren't you complaining about the stereotyped rednecks and white trash? Just John Coffee bothers you?

    "The Green Mile" had multiple social commentaries going on at the same time. First there was the stereotype of the "black criminal" being shattered by a gentle giant with a true gift for healing and a gentle soul, then there was the commentary against the automatic presumption of guilt, and let's not forget that Coffey had the choice of escape while the guards looked the other way but decided he couldn't take all the hate in the world. It was a very complex and dynamic film, played well by everyone in it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
