  1. Didn't he say that the "I could have done more" schtick, was meant to represent what everyone could have/should have done? If so, what unimaginable arrogance! Anyway, Mrs. S. said that it categorically did not happen, that way. He thanked people, politely, got in his car, and drove away, and that was that: no bawling like a baby, no collapsing on the car, no crap like that, just "Thank you, and good night".
  2. He's not fond of 1941, ...TEMPLE OF DOOM or A.I. Does that mean that they are bad? One of those films is in my all-time top 10, so...(blows a raspberry, and gives two-fingered salute) jog on, Steve
  3. It's a good question, but...why split DH? Why split the final Twilight book? Answer: My question is: why would Warner Bros. agree to let anyone film half of a book? Why not film it all - al la LOTR - and then edit it? @TheUlyssesian's question is a good one. Some reasons for: 1/ world-building 2/ to try to get as much out of the book, as possible 3/ to increase themes, ideas, and spectacle 4/
  4. Geez, Louise. That scratching sound you hear, is the bottom of the barrel, being scraped.
  5. They should travel back in time to reverse the (redacted). Oops! Politics!
  6. Now, just a damn minute! Since when did Marty and the Doc ever go to London?
  7. Where abouts in the book, does the film end?
  8. "You, Mr. Beale, have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and you...will...Atone!" Owen Roizman's cinematography is superb! It's every bit as good as SUPERMAN, in its own way.
  9. Another movie (I'm sorry, but I can't, by any standard, call this a "film") about "troubled children". Gimme a fucking break. Children deserve more than this.
  10. Do JWfaners prefer A Little Light Of Love, or The Experience Of Love?
  11. That "Belgian critic" didn't happen to go by the nom-de-plume of AC1, by any chance?
  12. Whoa, there, boy! No love for ON THE TOWN? SINGIN' IN THE RAIN? ANCHORS AWEIGH? AN AMERICAN IN PARIS? THE SOUND OF MUSIC? PAINT YOUR WAGON? PENNIES FROM HEAVEN?
  13. Oh, wow! Marnie Nixon has still got it Honestly, though, there is nothing in this trailer that screams "Spielberg!". Maybe it's me.
  14. He looks about as bloated as Kenneth MacMillan, in 1984, minus, of course, the pustules ("your skin, love to me. Your diseases lovingly care for, for all eternity"), and the David Bowie circa DIAMOND DOGS lookalike
  15. No argument, from me! Top 10 Jerry, right there. The poster is wrong. It should be the one with the little craft, between forefinger, and thumb, by John Alvin, I think. You might not believe this, but...it's CHANGING LANES.
  16. I will happily admit that, until I'd read of his death (and on this website, I might add), I'd never heard of Norm MacDonald. After watching these clips, I am, now, a fan. His "battle against cancer" routine, is priceless, and sums up exactly what I think of all those who try to turn a disease into some sort of personal crusade cum struggle for survival...in other words; bullshit. Bravo, Mr. MacDonald. I will watch a lot more.
