Silmaril The recent news about Harvey Weinstein

I'm sure many here have been following the recent news about Harvey Weinstein, and the numerous allegations leveled against him. Some are extremely serious; but even if we set aside allegations of criminal behaviour, he appears to have behaved like a repulsive bully.

Thumbs up I agree

You're right, Inziladun. His behaviour doesn't affect my views of the films.

When I read what he was accused of, and checked his connection with the films, I just thought of orc like behaviour by a Man...
