Re: Iconic One-Liners

For the record, I used "Iconic" in the topic's title 2 or 3 years before some moron started using it in every other sentence.

Re: Cruella

I would hope it's nowhere near as bad as Maleficent. Seems like Disney likes to gets its jollies off in portraying its classic villains in a positive light, and thus far it hasn't been too enthralling. Yeah, if they try to cure her evil soul, or worse, turn her into a saint, I'm gonna demand my mon...

Cruella

I imagine the casting call for this had 'em lined around several blocks, and I'm pretty sure they got it right. She's one of my faves to begin with, and it does look intriguing. https://nypost.com/2021/02/16/emma-stone-reinvents-cruella-de-vil-in-2021-disney-movie/?utm_medium=browser_notifications&u...

Movie Streaming

Movie streaming really came into its own in 2020, driven of course by the shutdowns. But I draw the line at paying for any more than two services (Amazon Prime and Netflix). It's the late-comers like Disney and Apple who be wanting their monthly pound of flesh but who've only had one movie each that...

Re: Favourite Films Of All Time?

I have (20) 100s, two of which I elevate to 100+. I think it's of interest to note that only three of the twenty are from the 20th century. *Her (2013)-----------------100+ *The Accountant (2016)--100+ (500) Days of Summer (2009) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) Black Snake Moan (2007) The Counselor (20...

Easily recognizable one liners.

Should be recognizable at least among casual movie fans. One sentence. The quote should return the movie on a Google search. I could call most of these iconic, but I won't, I'm so sick of that overused word. "He's madly in love with his laptop."-- Her "I'll be back."-- The Terminator "I'll have what...

Tenet

I've been a big fan of Christopher Nolan, especially with his superb efforts like The Dark Knight, Inception and Interstellar. And I've been looking forward to this for almost a year. But my first theater experience since Covid was something of a disappointment due to both conceptual and technical p...

Re: The Hunt (2020)

I bought the DVD and have watched it 2 more times. It really is a great dark comedy, some parts of which even liberals will appreciate. The dark comedy centerpiece is where Crystal retells the story of the jackrabbit and the box turtle. This is not the Aesop version with the hare and the tortoise, e...
