Watched “We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen” for the first time in a few years yesterday. Does that count?

hawk777— I’m not sure about that VHS boondoggle, but the Pythons were infamous for playing around with technology. For instance I remember listening to the second side of the Matching Tie and Handkerchief album back when vinyl was the sole medium. After a couple of listens, I put it on again and suddenly something Read more

It gets lost in all the memeing and quoting, but I love the subtle thread of the murder subplot. Every so often, we cut from all the crazy wackiness to just a quick shot of a bunch of policemen methodically doing their thing, which perfectly sets up the ending.

I have never forgiven Tom Cruise for this movie. I have boycotted almost all of his career for helping revive militarism in the US. I sincerely believe that this movie made the world a worse place and resulted in the actual deaths of real people.

I am too tired to type it out right now, but the introduction to Greil Marcus’ Mystery Train recounts an episode of the Dick Cavett Show where Little Richard was a guest and how he blows up on John Simon and Erich Segal, it is a magnificent piece of writing trying to describe a guy who may be diminished but was once a Read more

Can’t believe it took me this long to start 30 Rock but I am so glad I got around to it.

Cool, thanks for the recs. I’m not a horror movie person, but I do want to see Little Women.

I watched some of Season 5 recently and while what you say is true, I feel it more or less stuck to Community’s quality in general, where about every third episode fires on all cylinders and is on point and the other two maybe aim high but fail in execution. The main problem for me is a lot of the emotional beats in Read more

I’ve watched the Parks & Recreation special six times already, and I do not plan on stopping. Jean-Ralphio’s bit alone could power a lighthouse for the better part of a year. Unbridled optimism and wonderfulness. I miss all my best friends on that show very much.

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

I watched one of the Corman Poe movies the other day. I bet a Vincent Price/Hazel Court commentary track would have been delightful.

American Playhouse “Who Am I This Time?”-1982

Susan Sarandon is a self-described “walking icebox” who works for the phone company. Christopher Walken is a pathologically shy hardware clerk. Both blossom on the stage of a small town community theater where they can momentarily escape their skins and fall in love.

I managed to get a vacation from work for this week, so I’m staying home with my videogame/show/movie backlog that could probably sustain me for a few years, that I just added to when the Yakuza 3/4/5 Remastered Collection and the Criterion Godzilla Collection arrived in the mail yesterday. I started with Godzilla vs Read more

I’m crushed that Station Agent was not mentioned at all in the article or the comments section. I fell in love with all three actors for this excellent character study film. Her take on Olivia’s character was so natural.

He’s already made one of the greatest plague / quarantine films ever, The Masque Of The Red Death, a masterpiece. The ‘64 one, shot by Nic Roeg, not the ‘89 remake starring Adrian Paul, the first time those two names have ever been in the same post....
