Re: Twin Peaks (S1E17/E18) -- Season Finale -- "The Return - Part 17 & 18" -- 9/3/17

I need to rewatch it all again. But my initial reaction to Episode 18 was disappointment. It felt like Lynch just edited together a bunch of outtakes. The series had lots of moments I didn't care...

re: Mindhunter (Netflix) -- Season 1 -- S: Groff, McCallany, Torv; EP: Fincher, Theron

I'm with you on that. There's too much stuff to watch in the fall anyway. I'd rather they have dropped it over the summer when there was far less on.

Re: GLOW (Netflix) -- from EP Jenji Kohan -- S: Alison Brie -- women wrestlers -- 6/2

I saw that documentary too, which is how I know how far off they are from the real life events and characters. I still think they should have called it "WOW" or something and dropped the pretense...

Re: GLOW (Netflix) -- from EP Jenji Kohan -- S: Alison Brie -- women wrestlers -- 6/2

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I thought it was pretty forgettable. I'm also not sure why they bothered to use the GLOW name if they aren't making a docudrama about GLOW. All the characters...

Re: The 10 Most Disappointing Movies of 2016 So Far.

Yeah, no kidding. Man of Steel ranks as one of my biggest cinematic disappointments of all time. Right up there with The Phantom Menace, Crystal Skull, and Spider-Man 3.

Re: The Americans (S4E10) - "Munchkins" - 5/18/16

If all they wanted was to talk to Gaad, they should have just sent one guy and he should have knocked on the door. Three Soviet thugs surprising him like that was a very threatening approach.

Re: Fear the Walking Dead (S2E01) -- Season Premiere -- "Monster" -- 4/10/16

Other than Strand, and Salazar (who I'm ambivalent about), I hate the entire rest of the group. I don't mean I find them annoying - I actually hate them. It's like an entire group of Lori's - nothing...

Re: The Revenant (2015, D: Iñárritu) S: DiCaprio, Hardy

I was wondering about that. I saw the trailer for The Revenant when I saw The Martian on Thursday and my first thought was, "Oh, a remake of Man in the Wilderness." But then nothing in the press...

Re: Fear the Walking Dead (S1E06) -- Season Finale -- "The Good Man" -- 10/4/15

My thoughts exactly. I just don't care about any of these people. I actually would have loved it if the show was ballsy enough to kill off the entire group in the finale. Then season 2 could follow...

Re: What movie has the biggest emotional effect on you!

Any movie where a loyal family dog dies just kills me. I cry like a baby. Some of the worst:

- Old Yeller
- Where the Red Fern Grows
- My Dog Skip
- Eight Below
- I Am Legend

I've never...

Re: Blu-ray you're surprised is not in your collection?

Well, none are surprising because I know exactly why I don't own them (hard to find, too expensive, poor quality release, other purchases have taken priority over, etc.). On the other hand, yes,...

Re: Early draft of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and my lengthy exerpts and thoughts

Normally I'm a big fan of depth in literature and films, but in the case of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, I think I actually prefer the lighter, breezier version that made it to the screen. I wouldn't...

Re: Do you like to see "old" movies in a theater?

The Consolidated Ward theater here does these "Hana Hou" showings of old movies every month. I saw The Goonies there in 2011. But I was disappointed to discover they were simply screening the Blu-ray...

Re: Reporter and Photographer Shot During Live Broadcast

First off, building a bomb is not difficult at all. Do you think all the IED's used against American soldiers in Iraq were assembled by mechanical engineers with PhD's? Any moron can build a bomb....

Re: Reporter and Photographer Shot During Live Broadcast

The gun was simply the tool this evil person used to commit his crime. It didn't inspire the crime. But the media sensationalizing all these mass murders and providing such notoriety to the...

Re: Reporter and Photographer Shot During Live Broadcast

That's not a fact, actually. While it's true that we have the most mass shootings of any First World country, we do not have the most per capita. Personally, I blame the media for sensationalizing...

Re: Fear the Walking Dead (S1E01) -- 90 minute Premiere -- "Pilot" -- 8/23/15

I watched it last night. Really, really boring. I couldn't care less about the characters. Why waste so much time getting to the zombie apocalypse? We all know what's to come, so why so much (bad)...

Re: Reporter and Photographer Shot During Live Broadcast

Sorry, but I have to comment about this remark. Do you really believe that the U.S. is the only "civilized first-world country on the planet" that has experienced these sorts of crimes? That's not...

Re: The Hateful Eight (2015, D: Tarantino)

That's a fair point. Tarantino does seem to have a problem editing himself. I honestly think all his films since Pulp Fiction would have benefitted from some serious trimming.

Re: The Hateful Eight (2015, D: Tarantino)

In his defense wasn't Kill Bill split into two films at the insistence of Harvey Weinstein? As far as I am aware, Tarantino always preferred it be a single film. I wish they would release "The Whole...

Re: The Hateful Eight (2015, D: Tarantino)

You're right. That must be it. I don't agree with you, so it must be because I have no taste and not because I just don't agree with you in this instance.
