    Top Ten Films of...

    If you go to imdb, pick a movie from a given year, and then on that film's page, click the year beside the title. It will take you to a list of all the titles from that year.

    Jake's Trump Thread -- Make America Great Again

    Illegal immigration wasn't even a front burner issue until Trump started his schtick, except to the far right, which is who he is pandering to. I thought illegal immigration had dropped to nearly zero during the recession, with more Latino illegals actually headed in the other direction. Did it suddenly pick up again? Or is this just about the ones already here, staying and working? What's the problem with them again? It can't be the old fallacy about their parasitical use of government programs ("They're all on welfare and food stamps!") which has been proven to be a total crock. Is it the "they're all criminals" argument? That too has proven to be statistically incorrect. If it's the old argument about them stealing jobs, go after the employers, and hard, with real prison time. Going after the workers is like busting the junkies instead of the dealers. I just think there are much bigger, more critical issues to deal with.

    Top Ten Films of...

    I haven't seen LA CHIENNE yet, though I do have it taped. It's another of the "1001 Movies to See...". My lists are fairly conservative for the first few decades, with a mix of Hollywood, foreign and arthouse films that are generally acclaimed. After that, though, my choices get a little more original.

    Odds on a reissue

    I have Amazon Prime as well. I've enjoyed the classic films available there. I used to belong to Netflix, but haven't for awhile. I haven't joined Hulu...do you recommend them? And on occasion, I've watched some titles on YouTube, but the quality varies so greatly there. Like I said, I need to improve my ability to stream high quality content with ease, and then I'm sure I'll be watching much more content that way. Btw, I appreciate your posts about what's available on the different channels and services. Keep up the good work!

    Odds on a reissue

    I still use vhs and have three functioning vcrs, as well as dvd and blu ray. I still find uses for them all. I use streaming rarely at this point, but I'm sure that will change in time. At the moment I find streaming to be the least convenient choice for me, both in terms of what's legally available and the quality of the sound and image. With equipment upgrades and bandwidth usage changing, streaming may eventually become more attractive to me.
