Re: The Wonder Years reboot in development from EP Fred Savage and Lee Daniels at ABC

Absolutely. Reading the thread title I assumed it was going to try being the same thing only set in the 80s. I'm much more interested in seeing the same time period, only with a different family in a...

Re: Hamilton (2020) -- live production with the original Broadway cast

On the plus side, I guess that means they didn't have to shoehorn in a shitty new song in order to qualify for Best Original Song.

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

The courtroom scene was terrific. It made me laugh out loud (not in a derisive way) each time the crowd's outrage got bigger and bigger. I knew I recognized the judge, but couldn't place who he was,...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

Wow, that was a great episode! I'm very invested in this show now.

One criticism I have about HBO is that so many of their shows seem to go out of their way to be cryptic and ambiguous. I can...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

The scene in E.B. the lawyer's office between the four of them was superb. So much of the show is grim and dour, it really pops when there's a scene with this much energy and life and a bit of...

Re: Carl Reiner dead at 98

I know 98 is way up there, but I thought he was older than that.

Re: Sexual Harassment/Assault in Hollywood -- Discussion

I think it's more the circles he's in, the partying with comic "celebrities" where gross behaviour is normalized.

Over the last year, I've been listening to lots of clips of comedians on radio...

Re: TV shows being edited for content due to social issues

Although I would have defended the way these shows used "blackface" as being making fun of racist thinking instead of being racist, seeing the number of shows that did this exact same joke now makes...

Re: Perry Mason (HBO) - limited series - S: Matthew Rhys - premieres 6/21/20

It was okay, I'll watch an other couple episodes before making my final judgement. So far, Perry seems like he's just a scumbag. And while there has been tons of great shows about awful people (Tony...

Re: Director Joel Schumacher dead at 80

One of the first DVDs I bought was 8MM, and he gives a superb commentary, it was more like listening to a seasoned radio host or podcaster.

Re: Actors & Auteurs whose films you've liked progressively less (or more)

DeNiro was good in Wizard of Lies, but I don't think anything will rehabilitate him for me after seeing him in that movie where he plays a comedian that ends with him in an old folk's singing,...

Re: Director Joel Schumacher dead at 80

Re: Stephen King's thoughts on Creepshow?

I bet I've listened to more Stephen King interviews/lectures than pretty much anyone else here, and I've never heard him say anything disparaging about Creepshow. He's always spoken of it as a fun...

Re: Actors & Auteurs whose films you've liked progressively less (or more)

I really need to watch North again one of these days. I saw it when it came out in '94 and really enjoyed it. I'm not sure why it is universally reviled.

Skipped Phantom Thread when it was at the...

Re: Actors & Auteurs whose films you've liked progressively less (or more)

Re: What movies are among your favorites that no one else ever talks about?

Manhattan Murder Mystery. Even a lot of "Woody Allen buffs" I've spoken to over the years only saw it once and consider it one of his lesser pictures, but while I recognize Annie Hall has more...

Re: RIP Kurt Thomas, Olympic champion and star of Gymkata

Gymkata was a favourite movie rental when I was a little kid. Hadn't thought about it in 30 plus years until TCM played it late one night. I was surprised by how genuinely exciting and suspenseful...

Re: Who was actually the worst kid visiting Wonka's factory?

As far as I'm concerned, Wonka, with his goofy "test", got the quality of children he deserved. Actually, he didn't deserve Charlie choosing to leave his family in poverty rather than betray Wonka. ...

Re: the Sopranos -- "the Second Coming" -- 05.20.2007

I've been re-watching The Sopranos for the past two months. I haven't seen the shows since they were new, so I've forgotten so much it's practically like watching it for the first time.

Re: Boogie Nights- questions and loose ends

Do be fair, a movie like the unrated Caligula featuring multiple shots of penetration and ejaculation could hardly be considered "softcore".

I remember on the DVD commentary, Anderson saying he...
