Yeah. Anyone beaming down in a red top was pretty much toast. When two or more "reds" went, at least one was a goner. Scotty wasn't immune, either! He was killed several times.

 

Here's that "large laundry cubes" episode

:lol:

It's By Any Other Name - a second season episode of the original series, first broadcast February 23, 1968 and repeated May 31, 1968. It is episode #51.

Maybe industrial sized laundry cubes. I haven't watched Star Trek too often

in the last few years, but I do remember that once Warren crushed your cubes,

you were a goner.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

I'll admit I haven't watched many new to me films in the last couple of days-- right now I'm watching episodes of Alton Brown's Good Eats on Netflix.  I'm trying to decide what to watch now that I've finished eating and have learned how you use a pie bird.  Thanks to Alton Brown, now I know. 

 

Anyway.

 

Yesterday I watched "Tangled," a cute animated film from Disney.  I loved this movie.  It is the story of Rapunzel, a princess with magic hair that has the ability to heal.  Rapunzel was kidnapped as a child by an old woman who wanted to stay young.  She kept Rapunzel captive in a tower in the middle of nowhere, where the two of them lived for 18 years.  When the old woman would start experiencing the effects of aging, she'd ask Rapunzel to sing a special song while she brushed Rapunzel's hair.  Rapunzel had to sing the same song each time to activate her special powers.  Every year on Rapunzel's birthday, her parents, the King and Queen, release two lighted lanterns into the sky, hoping that Rapunzel would see them and come home.  Eventually everyone in the kingdom began releasing the lanterns, creating a beautiful "starry" sky.  Rapunzel sees these glowing lights every year and wants to see the display in person.  Enter Flynn Rider.  Rider, a criminal, stumbles across Rapunzel's tower while on the run.  He manages to climb inside the tower.  Eventually after Rapunzel is understandably freaked out, she makes a deal with Rider: He must take her to the castle to see the lanterns released, and she will give back his satchel (that she's stolen and hidden) that contains the items he has stolen.  Inevitably, the two fall in love and Rapunzel's "mother" is upset that Rapunzel is gone and seeks out to find her. 

 

This was a great movie with fun characters and fun songs.  My favorite part was when Flynn takes Rapunzel on a romantic boat ride so she can view the annual lantern display from the best spot in town.  The scene is so gorgeous, accompanied by a romantic song.  I'm a sucker for sweet romantic stories.  Plus, Flynn Rider was super hot, which throws me into a dilemma: I used to maintain that Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty was the hottest Disney prince, but Rider gives him a run for his money.  (Yes I realize they're cartoon characters). 

 

Anyway. 

 

Throughout all my fangirl swooning over the animated Flynn Rider, I have settled upon watching Days of Wine and Roses with Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick.  So far, so good with that movie.  In about two hours I'll know if it'll end up in my "Waste of DVR space" thread or this one.

Earlier today, on one of the Spanish language movie channels.I get.through Directv, they aired EL.NORTE, without commercials. It had been a few years since I've seen this classic, and enjoyed if all over again. As timely as ever, it has some great writing and an excellent cast, including a great turn by the recently deceased Lupe Ontiveros.

So is Cobb's daughter only 2 years younger than he is?

That conjures up some interesting scenarios.

 

I was figuring, Lee's daughter is so attractive, and since she probably got all of it from mom..

mom must be way gorgeous (I haven't seen her yet). 

 

Wait.. I found this. Julie's mother is indeed quite beautiful. How fortunate; Lee.

Wow! Not bad for a daughter of Lee J. Cobb!

 

(...must've taken after her mother)

So when Lee ranted "lousy kids, you work your heart out ...," he was complaining that his son became his daughter?

It is most definitely NOT the movies, but on YouTube I have found a channel showing the first three seasons of Have Gun - Will Travel. I don't think I have ever seen any of these. Richard Boone was so good as Paladin.

I just watched The Stranger last night. Damned if I could find any gay subtext, except for maybe those college boys chasing each other in the woods.

IIRC the cube he crushed was the redshrt played by Lee J. Cobb's cute daughter Julie, so we never saw her again

He was just demonstrating.. like the vacuum cleaner salesmen of olden days: When one is crushed, it cannot be returned to it's original form - gone forever. He then quickly pulls out his handy-dandy-ṣpic-and-spandy vacuum cleaner to demonstrate to Kirk how well it works, even on another planet.

 

It's all quite simple, really.

:P

 

LOL

Star Trek wasn't the only show with "redshirts". In the last few months I've been watching a lot of Rawhide episodes. Whenever you see a new drover around the campfire, you just know he's bound to get caught in a stampede.

It's gotten to where we can spot 'em a mile away

:)

Here's Julia Cobb. She figured prominently - better than most red-shirts.

I can't remember here, Kid. Is there a reason why Warren there is crushing one of those poor ill-fated (used to be) red top ensigns there?

Life is never interesting enough somehow... You people who come to the movies know that.

Wasn't there an urban legend that if they were wearing a certain

color of uniform top they weren't coming back to the Enterprise?

I got a kick out of the one where they changed people into

something that looked like large laundry cubes. Can't recall the

details, but I laughed every time I saw it. Don't throw him into

the washer.

Was watching a doc on You tube about the Bismarck vs. the Hood. I then decided to watch 1960's Sink the Bismarck. Great film based on actual events, and the funny thing is this:

 

Even though the movie has a lot of miniature work, the models of the ships are very detailed.

I just saw RETURN TO OZ for the first time yesterday.

It features Fairuza Balk as Dorothy and is a very well-made fantasy that held my interest from beginning to end.

Piper Laurie plays Aunt Em, and Jean Marsh plays the evil Mombi in Oz (in Kansas her character is a nurse who works with a doctor who wants to use an electrical device to wipe out Dorothy's memories of Oz).

I loved the talking chicken and Jack Pumpkinhead.
