The TIME 100: The World of Film Representin’ Again!

The 2013 TIME 100 List is out and again the world of cinema is represented quite well. While I may not agree with ALL of the selections, but they are worth the notice nonetheless; where appropriate, I labeled the category of where they were slotted, otherwise they were identified as Artists. Here are some of the honorees:

  1. Hi, iluv:

    ‘Time’ magazine is attempting to seek relevance again?

    Steven Spielberg an “Icon”? Maybe twenty years ago. More of a “mogul” today.

    Bryan Cranston. Superb character actor. Best comedic work was in ‘Malcolm in the Middle’. Not an ‘Icon’.

    Lena Dunham?… Seriously? A complete fabrication of the liberal left media machine. With bad skin art.

    Didn’t recognize more than a half dozen names overall.

    Which may be why I gave up on ‘Time’ magazine back in the 1970s.

    • As you see I left commentary up to my readers. There were more than a few that left me scratching my head. You pointed out just a few of them.

      And not to age you or me for that matter but in my defense I couldn’t even read in the 1970s

  2. Ahah, I feel the same about Dunham as Jack. Ah well, this kind of list aren’t gonna please everyone. Nice to see DDL on there though.

    • True. Lists are funny things. Glad to see cinema as art recognized but this is also a business – the business of selling covers for a dying concern.

      The photos are pretty nice, though 😉
