  1. People who are really funny tend to be controversial in some way. The Oscars is afraid of controversy. Even when Chris Rock hosted, he was afraid to use his best material. Bland and stale is why more and more are ignoring the show. I think McCarthy is talented but, she wouldn't get me to watch the show. What is she going to do ? Trip and fall all over the stage ??
  2. How many homeless people do I pass by while I wonder what some other city should name their airport ? As I write this, I have a family member in the hospital. He's in the Ronald Reagan building. Should I care about the name ? Or that he gets healthy ?

    How To Get My Age Bracket (20-30) Into Cinema

    For young women I have known, I have suggested Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), because Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe are actresses they are bound to have heard of. And if nothing else they can watch for the styles and fashions. In my part of town, there are lots of people who modify cars and make low riders. And the 50's style is a major part of that. So at car shows, you see lots of people dressed in the styles of that day. For young men, its either a war movie like Sahara (1943), or action like the good Ben Hur (1959). As you stated a difference between a movie and a film. Its not just about watching the film. Its also about understanding the time the film was set in. What was going on. How things were. If you really get into some of these films you can enjoy them more. Just as cosplay has gotten popular, there are those who dress in the style of their favorite classic films. To get younger people into it, take it farther than just the film. Make it a fun adventure. If you show up one day wearing a fedora, see what your friends have to say.

    Are you insinuating that Hollywood just might be a little leftist ? We all know what this could lead to !

  7. Looong story really short: I was using a beta Windows OS. It had all sorts of problems but, I was a tester (guinea pig) I guess. When the full Windows 10 came along, I would just get that. Then one day, Microsoft decided I was no longer allowed to use this beta version and proceeded to shut my pc down. Said they would continue to shut my pc down every three hours until I upgraded to the new Windows 10. Problem was, it took longer than 3 hours to download the OS. I would literally get to 90% then it would shut off. Except mine was at 90% I chatted with their customer service, they had no clue what I was talking about. I went through this three times over three days. I was just fed up with it all. I don't need corporations dictating to me how I can use my pc. I probably can't totally avoid MS but, I'll stay away as much as I can.
  8. I couldn't agree more ! I've had my own problems with MS and lost three days of my life I'll never get back because of it. I'm strictly unbuntu and firefox. I have never had Hulu though so I can comment on that. And for search I use

    How To Get My Age Bracket (20-30) Into Cinema

    My method is doing it case by case or person by person. I look at a specific person and ask myself, "what classic film would they like". I have to hold their hand a bit because they know nothing about it at all. I find a film or two that might interest them specifically. And from there, they are on their own realizing these old films aren't half bad after all.

    If we're going to TV, then Leonard Nimoy and his pointy ears got much more fan mail than Shatner, who was supposed to be the star of the show. And that did cause problems as they shifted to the movies as far as salary etc...

    I like this thread for the same reasons. I also like to avoid the obvious.
