Superbowl's Greatest Halftime Shows

Did anybody watch this? I recorded it, thinking it should have some damn good music as there have been some great bands and singers over the years. They start with Katy Perry, fine, she writes good pop. About 10 seconds into her first song they start [more]

Halt and Catch Fire

I'm 2 eps into the first season, it ain't grabbing me so far, though I think the subject matter could and should be fascinating. Anyone here seen it? Does it get better?

Re: Spencer Tracy

I think it's hard to compare actors of today to those of the past because acting is much more realistic now. Acting was always evolving toward realism from the very beginning of film. Compare the acting style of the silents and early talkies to those [more]

Re: Crimson Peak

I'm a big Guillermo del Toro fan but I thought this was one of his weaker efforts. Agree that it was pretty obvious where the story was going early on and, yeah, the "twist" ain't much. The acting was indeed superb and, as usual, the whole [more]

Re: Q: Superheroes; The New Greek Pantheon of Gods?

If you think tv in the "Golden Age" has become boring then you're definitely watching the wrong tv.

Paying Amazon Sales Tax?

I got a notice from Amazon saying I may have to pay SC state taxes on my purchases for 2015. It's only a few bucks so it's no big thing but I don't know if I have to pay it or not. Anyone know what the deal is on this?

Re: Abe Vigoda

He had one of the iconic scenes in film in The Godfather: "Tell Michael it wasn't personal. It was just business."

The Walk

A really fun movie and JGL is a charmer as Petit. The sequence when he's on the wire is both exhilarating and (for me, anyway) terrifying. (At one point he lays down on the wire! Amazing.) And the way they are able to pull the whole thing off is [more]

Re: Billions

The two leads are two of my fav actors and it's an interesting subject for a series. Planning to marathon it after season one is complete.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Watched this for the first time in many years. What a classic. The wide shots, the extreme close-ups, the score, the story. That incredible scene when Tuco is running around the graveyard. One of the great gunfights in film at the end and the final [more]

45 Years

Charlotte Rampling plays Kate, wife to Geoff (Tom Courtenay). In the days leading up to their 45th wedding anniversary celebration Kate slowly comes to the realization that she is not - and never has been - the true life-long love of Geoff. Without [more]

Re: Well, They Got Dunst Right

It was one of my favorite shows and Ed and Peggy were my two favorite characters in the show.

Mine, too (along with Milligan). Plemons is an amazing actor. He has a knack for playing oddballs (Fargo, Breaking Bad, Black Mass) which I [more]

Re: New Nancy Drew will look very different

However, there is no reason why a James Bond or Dr. Who or any other fictional character, can't have their race or even gender changed, for a role if the best actor to audition is cast for the role.

Absolutely. I am so hoping that [more]

Re: Straight out of Compton!!!

I loved SooC and I'm very white. Great music, great story, great acting. What's not to like? I was amazed at the young actor they had playing Ice Cube - he looked and sounded like him, even had his mannerisms. I looked him up on IMDb afterwards, he's [more]
