He’ll probably play Mapache in brownface and yell “Tetas de azucar!” at the first character who tries to rein him in.
For what it’s worth I graduated from high school with a 3.8 GPA and college with a 3.6, and I still subscribe to Mad. But that probably says more about our educational system than the snobbery of closed-minded politicos. That said, I really like Mayor Pete but not as much as Kamala Harris. I bet she stored her Mad…
Well said, although I prefer artists who are at war with themselves. Or at least artists who can envision their better selves while proving unable to match that ideal.
Reed may not have been cool in that context, but his impact on songwriting is revolutionary. It’s interesting that Reed and Davis could be unpleasant in day to day life but make music that connected deeply with the listener and expressed compassion for social pariahs.
Glad Bowie made it, but no Miles Davis? Maybe his abusiveness is a deal breaker. How about Joe Strummer, then? Marlene Dietrich? Orson Welles?
With interest and appreciation.
I can’t say that I’m chastened by the passionate defenses against my somewhat trollish comment. For all the effort and obstacles described, a show of GoT’s caliber shouldn’t be making such preventable mistakes at this stage. For what it’s worth though, I hope the last episode exceeds all expectations.
Between the dim visuals of last week’s episode and the Starbucks cup, is it fair to say the show is half-assing its last season? Hope the finale doesn’t out-Lost the competition.
I’m glad that whatever I wrote inspired you to watch Shadow of a Doubt but am sorry if perceived pot holes and silly acting prevented you from fully enjoying the film. I can’t speak to the plot holes but acknowledge that Macdonald Carey and even Henry Travers are pretty corny. That said, I will defend Patricia…
Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt, where young and naive Teresa Wright learns not to define herself through other people, especially a namesake uncle who turns out to be a serial killer.
Looks like this was just before he started to suffer the scorn of anti-Dentites.
I would guess Mann was fired less for his abilities and talent and more because Douglas wanted somebody who wouldn’t push back. If that’s the case I’m sure Douglas was pissed that Kubrick proved even less obedient.
Yeah, I’ve recommended it many times to friends and coworkers but they have yet to follow through. My family’s reaction last night proved they’re missing out.
Broke in the Criterion Channel with Godard’s 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her and screened Withnail and I for the fam. They loved it and want to move to England’s Lake District. I loved 2 or 3 Things, which is now my favorite Godard film. Marina Vlady is excellent as the embodiment of a consumer culture that renders all…
Reminds me of my grandma who used to say “I'm not prejudiced but" before complaining about getting “Jewed” or bemoaning how African Americans aren’t as nice as they used to be.
#MeToo may have pulled the plug on the reign of Weinstein, but Grace of Monaco sure exposed how deeply the rot had already set in.
Didn’t want to get buried in a remake of Pet Semetary. Didn’t want to live that life again. Watched House of Dracula instead. A mildly entertaining mash up of the classic Universal monsters played for scares one more time before they became fodder for Abbott and Costello. Pairs well with weed.
I watched 20 minutes. My faves were the cutaways to Liz and Dick being interviewed (presumably in the afterlife) about their lives and love.
In the ‘90s, a self-styled journalist named Richard Lee hosted a weekly show on public access called “Kurt Cobain Was Murdered.” He believed Courtney and Dave Grohl were behind the killing and would review the threads in a pre-Glenn Beck style. However, that soon devolved into a stream-of-consciousness montage of…
