Wacky Weekend for Hollywood on S. Stone, Scientology

THR went in an even stranger direction, hiring a former Scientologist named Marc Headley to review the Will Smith movie After Earth. He claims that some of the dialogue comes from the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, and notes – GET READY FOR THIS SMOKING GUN – that a volcano depicted in the movie looks very much like the volcano on the cover of Hubbard’s Scientology treatise Dianetics. Now, THR doesn’t say exactly why it is using an ex-Scientologist who’s not a movie critic to provide that service, other than to cite some reviewers who suspect Scientology tenets find their way into some of the dialogue. Are they inferring that Will Smith or M Night Shyamalan are members of that church who are trying to subliminally win converts? They don’t go that far. Can we expect this guy to review every sci-fi movie because Hubbard wrote science fiction? Who knows? One thing THR probably didn’t expect – or maybe it wanted artificially created Internet traffic – was to receive 681 horrible unmonitored reader comments. I read through a few of these and they are the most hateful, racist, sexist things you’ve ever laid eyes on. When you run a questionable story like this, you need to be sure to police the comments, particularly the most vulgar missives about interracial sex acts and the kind of racial rants you expect to hear at a Klan rally and not a legitimate media outlet.

It seems anybody can post anything, no matter how libelous or nasty in comments, on yelp, and comment sections on web sites with impunity. I just don't get it. What happened to manners? Mimsey
