Re: Favourite Films Of All Time?

Whenever I get asked at parties I say, Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). Which is true. It usually halts polite conversation but exposes real future friends. I hope you don't mean you actually say the complete title out loud. That's grounds for a bowl of ...

Re: Help Me With Movie Name (1990)

I recalled Battle For The Lost Planet while reading the post, but I could be way off-base.

Re: Movie Streaming

But no one is gonna subscribe to more than two or three services, and all these media companies haven't realized that. I guess I'm alone, here. If a service has a particular value above and beyond simply having films on a digital "shelf" for me to watch whenever, I will subscribe for access to that...

Often, I come across a ‘review’ I wrote 4-5 years earlier and find it’s either spot-on or wildly off. It...

Re: Joker

Excellent use of music and to a certain extent, dance. My favorite scene, is his routine on the stairs (see poster) to Gary Glitter's "Rock & Roll Pt. 2"--well, that and an honorable mention for De Niro's last scene. Absolutely -- although for me a favorite moment (and an early clue o...
