The nice thing about being a member of "the audience" is one can listen to his tirades, realize that it's coming from some deep, dark place inside himself, and then ignore his output, or his movies. It's simple really. His efforts just aren't worth the cash.

Your saying his movies aren't worth the cash to see them? I disagree.

Mel's movie are worth driving a 100 miles to see. I had to drive 50 miles to see The Beaver. My family liked it so much, we bought the movie too!!
My family really liked Edge Of Darkness. Well, right up until some moose with a bad head cold started singing..Say My Name Again. My son looked at me and said, eeew ..who is that singing? I said that is his ex nightmare. My son said, Mel let her sing in his movie? What was the dude thinking? I said he wasn't thinking or he wouldn't have done it. LOL We all agree it was good right up until she started trying to sing.

He is a force to be reckoned with. I may not approve with some of his personal views but as an actor and as a director the man is immensely taleted and driven. Almost all of his work is full of "manic energy" and passion. This writer, Ty Burr, did a superb job of detailing how this man hurl himself into his work. I would definately read a biography from this writer. Well, Mel is so good that he sold me on Mr. Burr there.. LOL

Yeah, and that is why those movies made him rich, because they all suck. Right, dude? The only movie that he made that came close to sucking was the movie EOD, because he let his ex nightmare have her way, and put that god awful moose with a bad head cold song play at the end of the movie. Otherwise, it was a very good movie.

Hey, bro. To each their own and stuff. Personally I can't get past his anger management issues, antisemitism, and his hatred for women to come close to being able to enjoy him as an actor. However, if you're a fan, more power to ya. Also this "dude" is a dudette.:)

Who said Mel Gibson hates women? Some jealous gay man that can't have him? LOL

Anger issues my ass! Have you ever dated a gold digger yourself?

..and who ever started the tale that Oksana is Mel Gibson's ex wife needs their ass kicked up around their ears. LOL

The man might have gotten scam by a gold digger, but he isn't that stupid to have married her untalented worthless uncaring ass.
