    It's A Wonderful Town

    Sweet Smell of Success Queensboro Bridge, Brill Bldg. Times Square
  3. I was glad to see BARRY LYNDON decades ago projected 35mm in a theater. I don't think it would have captured me nearly as well seeing it on TV first. Kubrick's films always benefit by a big screen. So, my list are films everyone else likes-I've heard enough about them. Some movies just don't engage as well when watching on TV, home alone. Some films I need to be immersed in. Pather Panchali (1958) love Indian films, but barely got through the Music Room. I couldn't get into it. Eraserhead (1977) Started several times, fell asleep 7 Brides For 7 Bros (1954) I love this film but would love to see it on the big screen I've only seen Modern Times, but think ALL Chaplin films are much better with an audience. I mostly never watch silents at home but am lured out by any oft seen title like METROPOLIS or DR CALIGARI just for the experience. The Cinephile group I belong to showed a Harold Lloyd silent and few showed up. The powers that be think the fact it was a silent kept people away (like foreign films) I think no one knew who Harold Lloyd is. If they scheduled a CHAPLIN silent, like the KID, I think we'd sell out because of Chaplin's name and curiosity to see a film of his-many have never seen one! You gotta break the ice with a strong contender that most will like.

    I agree with TB's assessment. As a young tween in the 70's, I liked the dynamics between Walter & Maude- a strong woman with a man secure in his own strength. He played it well, a very understated comedic style. Wow 97! I hope he had a healthy happy life. Bill Macy always reminded me of a koala bear.

    I agree, I was a big fan of his and "Maude". He also had great chemistry with Conrad Bain, who played his best friend Arthur. There were a few episodes where Walter and Arthur are given the spotlight. These are some of the funniest episodes, I recall one show where Walter dreams that he kissed Arthur and tells him about it, then the two go on a fishing trip and uptight Arthur is constantly trying to act macho!
  7. Today
  8. Eh, how is Whitney Houston the most deserving? (crickets chirping) You sure can post 'em, but you never back your post's claims, jakeem. Back when Whitney Houston first came on the scene, the pop/AOR radio station I worked for was bombarded with Whitney Houston promo stuff. All of us were shocked by what "hard sell" they put on this one artist-the record company was trying to dictate how many times her songs were to be played per hour! The DJs were still educated, experienced people in the music business then and offended by this artificial push of one artist, now a commonplace practice. We all were underwhelmed by Houston's records most likely colored by resentment of being told how great she was. I still think most of her success was manufactured and the root cause of her chronic drug addiction. Around the same time period, Madonna debuted. While there was a push to play her songs, it was more organic. Publicity in other medias got her name & face out there and people were curious to hear her. The requests to play Madonna records came from the public. While I never have liked Madonna's music, she seemed to know how to use publicity aggressively, but not quite as offensively as Whitney Houston's reps.

    The Exorcist Conventional?

    I thought this was a pretty interesting take on the film and why it may actually be more conventional and sort of out of place amongst the easy riders and raging bulls. Heck, I saw the director's cut when it was in theater some years back, and Friedkin apparently wanted to make it even more conventional by playing up Lee J. Cobb's very old school movie cop character. https://film.avclub.com/for-all-its-blood-vomit-and-obscenities-the-exorcist-1838894063

How much more evidence of human rights abuses does Trump need before we stop providing military assistance to Saudi Arabia?
