Can't go wrong with Marky Mark

I was flipping channels today and came across the film "Rock Star" starring Mark Wahlberg. I have always liked this guy. Never saw him in a film that I consider bad. The classic "Boogie Nights" really put him on the map and he has just taken off from there. I don't know what his politics are and thankfully have not heard him braying about his personal beliefs like a great many in the Hollywood crowd. Perhaps he has done some braying but I have thankfully not heard it. It would diminish his stature in my eyes if he began to spout his personal opinions, politics, and beliefs. I am no more interested in the opinions of the Hollywood crowd than I am of the local grocery clerk. In the not too distant past I watched a documentary on MTV featuring Metallica. Prior to that unfortunate viewing, I had a very high opinion of the band members. Rock as God intended is these guys stock in trade. After viewing the documentary I came to the conclusion that the band was composed of a pack of poon. I can never listen to Metallica with the same enjoyment and pleasure again. I hope "Marky Mark" does not go spouting off at the mouth about his personal beliefs. It would ruin most of his movies for me.

I like Wahlberg a lot. The Shooter was absolutely awesome.

I have always like him. I thought he did a great job in "The Departed." Have not watched "Boogie Nights" in quite a while and think I will view it again sometime this week.
