The Limey -Watched for the first time in 20 years. The movie is fine, but the plot ultimately offers no surprise and the characters lack dimension. It’s an all-too straightforward revenge tale pitting English ex-con Terrence Stamp against corrupt rich hippie Peter Fonda. The relationship between Stamp, Lesley Ann Read more

Truth. I worked many gym, pub and outdoor shows, as well as movies and lectures. One of the best times of my life.

The movie also introduced Sam Kinison, right? Obnoxious, retrograde and yet really, really funny. I saw him perform at my college in 1987 (didn’t pay, “worked” security) and was lying on the floor convulsed with laughter while still appalled at everything he said. True cognitive dissonance.

When the child turns 18 I hope he changes his name to Blue Origin.

Remember when Caligula installing a horse in the Roman Senate seemed the ultimate act of a society that had descended into madness? Now I’m pretty sure Busey is holding equine auditions for a sidekick.

Somebody’s going to say the same about "Killing Eve" before you know it.

Gotta say that "an old BBC show called Prime Suspect..." makes me feel super old. That was appointment viewing only ... 26 years ago? Thought it was only last month.

Pugh is also awesome in Midsommar and stole Little Women from the rest of the cast. But you've probably heard that already.

You make a valid point and was also thinking of the throwdown between Abed and Hickey over the destroyed drawings. It opened up a level of conflict that hadn’t been explored much before (well, maybe when Pierce reacted angrily to being left out of D&D), but it came to nothing. Both characters retreated to their normal Read more

Community - Season 5: When the show was first broadcast, I was a faithful viewer of Seasons 1-3, skipped Season 4 entirely and came back to Season 5. At the time, I loved it and considered the quality of the episodes as good as the earlier seasons. I was never able to find a way to watch Season 6 on Yahoo but Read more

Despite the pandemic, I still adhere to my seasonal traditions. That includes putting up the canopy in my patio on the last Sunday in April, making myself a cocktail in the middle of the afternoon and sitting underneath while listening to old jazz streaming from a local college station. Read more

I recommend checking out "Get Carter" with Michael Caine, a UK cousin to "Point Blank." A grittier and grimmer affair, but the momentum is just as relentless.

I’m trying to identify all the women singing “Perfect Day.” I know about Fey, Poehler, Dratch, Rudolph, Shannon, and Gasteyer. I thought the one pictured on the top left might be Julia Sweeney, but others write it was Paula Pell. But I have no idea who was singing on the bottom right. Anyone?

I finished the first half of Dr. Mabuse last night and completely agree about the subtitles. But Rudolf Klein-Rogge is tremendous as the title character. Even better than his turn as Rotwang in Metropolis. Subtitles aside, it’s worth the entire 4.5 hours. One of the coldest/meanest films from the silent era.
