    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    A very Happy Birthday to you, Movieman! I hope you are having a wonderful day with your loved ones. Albeit a soggy one! And congratulations on your daughter getting married! Are you now broke? 😀 Miss G is doing pretty good. She's still snippy as ever!
  2. Where have you been old buddy? Sorry I missed your birthday. Happy belated!!! Been driving for Uber here in the Chicago area since a year ago August. Have not had a full-time job since June 2018. Very hard finding anything. Think my age (59) is working against me. Have you been in touch at all with Miss Goddess? Hope you are well. Miss sharing movie stuff with you!

      Hi, Rey! I'm glad to hear you are doing all right. And thanks for the birthday wish.

      Miss G is doing pretty good. She lived in Oahu for a couple years but is back in NYC. She's doing pretty good.

      Hey, glad to hear from you! Since you have not posted for awhile and this is pretty much up to you, any chance you could share with me your personal email so that I can keep you updated about stuff? If you feel I am asking too much of yourself, please tell me, okay?

    Howdy, MusicMan! How's your world? Thank you for the b-day wishes! I do check the site on occasion. Lots of changeover since I was posting regularly. But I enjoy some of the newer folks. I text Miss G and Sweet T most every day. I also text with Rohanaka. She has a birthday coming up. I mostly return to the site for Bronxie. We exchange birthday and holiday wishes. She's a peach. And hello to SansFin!

    Howdy, Laffite! Great to see you! I like your Vertigo creation. Judy isn't happy to see Scottie! Mine is from To Catch a Thief; My darling "Francie". And I still love your avatar. One of my very favorites. And thank you for the birthday wish! Bonjour, Bronxie! A Blacula double-feature works for me! I have the two on DVD. I've never seen the sequel. i need to check it out!

    A very Happy Birthday to you, Bronxie! You are one of the best! You're still so much fun. I think you're getting younger.

    Thank you, Quiet Gal and Bronxilla! I know I'm quite late in replying but I've been slow to get back on the horse.

    Larry Peerce Director Of The Incident (1967)

    I love "The Incident". I saw it back in the early days of the Fox Movie Channel and I was mesmerized. It's very much a social commentary. Rather similar to "Lady in a Cage", in many ways. I've had a small list of films I want a DVD release for and this has been on the list forever. I'm amazed that Fox has never released it.

    Upcoming Releases

    Amazon, Deep Discount, and the Criterion site get close to the B&N price but are still a little more. That is, if you're a member. Now if your B&N accepts a coupon during the sale, they blow the others out the water. My B&N always honored the coupons until this last November, when new employees were "by the book". Before that, I'd use the coupons on pricey Criterion boxes. A $100 box was had for $38.16 in PA (6% sales tax). Basically 62% off.

    Upcoming Releases

    I buy all my Criterions during the Barnes and Noble sales in July and November. That's 50% off. Plus members get 10% off. Some B&N stores even honor their coupons with Criterions. Although the coupons explicitly say not to.

    Yesterday was not a fun day. Lots of snow removal. We ended up getting about 19 inches. It's the second highest snow total for Harrisburg in the month of March.

    RAMBLES Part II

    Good afternoon, Piecemaker -- Well, there is no accounting for tastes sometimes.. ha. My brothers all liked it too. (they were still in highschool and junior high for the most part... that was likely more the standard audience for that show, overall) But you never know why someone will like something. I once dated a boy (way... way back when I was in highschool. You know.. practically dinosaur days. ha) and his little sister (she was 7) ABSOLUTELY l-o-v-e LOVED The Dukes of Hazard. If you knew that little girl, you'd NEVER have suspected she would.. very prissy.. very much a "princess" but oh me.. every time that show was on, she was right there, asking to watch it. If I was visiting them and it was time for the Dukes.. oh yeah, the whole world had to stop and we all got to watch Rosco P. Coltrane and Boss Hogg try and get one step ahead of those Duke boys. ha. Again.. no accounting for tastes. We all just like what we like.. and usually have our own reasons. (but ha.. some of us have NO rhyme or reason.. I confess I likely have at least a FEW unexplainable favorites on my "hit list" too.) A Dukes of Hazzard lady?! My kind of girl! After that, the best batman performance I can think of would be... the Batman character in The LEGO Movie, maybe. ha. (Now THERE was a super hero!! ha) I definitely love the Will Arnett "Batman" from the LEGO series. My favorite is Adam West, followed by Kevin Conroy, who voiced "Batman" on the Animated Series. But it may be a stand alone fan moment for me. Even if I like that movie, I am not sure if we'll dive in to the whole "Justice League" stuff, though, now that that is all starting to come together. I still have not gotten past the really awful things I heard (and thought) about the Batman V Superman film when they were advertising it.. ha. It just looked too doofy. (not sure why.. I love the whole Marvel Avengers stuff.. and that has to be the height of doofiness. But it works for me, somehow. Doofy can be a very subjective thing sometimes, I guess. ha) Yeah, I heard bad things about that film, too. It's trouble when the boys in my family think it's not that good. They love everything. I'm a DC fan more than Marvel but the Marvel films are currently done better.

    I admire such collecting, Mr. Gorman. I got a kick out of your Meatballs story.
