    New Pop Up Ads During Films

    My provider is Comcast, and I use TiVo to record and then offload movies to a hard drive. Plex then indexes them and let’s me stream them at will. There’s a Plex app for TiVo, Appletv, Roku and more. So far the pop ups have been not that annoying now that I know where they’re coming from. I don’t know whether an upgrade to the paid Plex subscription might make them go away.

    New Pop Up Ads During Films

    I dvr a lot of movies off of TCM and store them on a hard drive. Plex is an app that lets me stream them to my tv.

    New Pop Up Ads During Films

    Through the process of elimination, I have determined that the culprit is in fact Plex, and not TCM. So my apologies to AT&T. I don’t pay Plex anything, so I guess I can’t get too upset. It hasn’t happened very often so far.

    New Pop Up Ads During Films

    Yes, I do. It’s similar to the TCM logo when it pops up, but a good bit bigger. I’ve only watched about 10 minutes of the movie so far, so it happened in that interval. I was streaming a recording I made the other night using Plex, so it’s possible they inserted it, although I use Plex a lot and have never seen that before. I’ll continue to investigate.
  5. I just noticed a pop up ad for STARZ and the season premiere of Outlander during Radio Days. Thank you, but no thank you, AT&T.

    Comcast moved TCM to Sports/Entertainment Package

    Yes, please. I mean, come on, these movies are from 60 to 30 years old. It’s not like these films are shown regularly in HD and uncut, commercial free anywhere else. There’s a huge audience out there for these films, which includes me, who aren’t really that interested in much pre-1960. I love TCM for its current programming mix. Please don’t change it.

    Movies That It Sometimes Feels That Only You Alone Like?

    I’m really pleased to see that four of my all time favorites that are frequently reviled are mentioned here— A Perfect Couple, Lost Horizon (the musical), the Farrow/Redford Gatsby, and 3 Women (although a lot of people have praised that one). I’ll add one to the mix— Altman’s HEALTH. Best cast, funniest film, ever, imho.

    Glenda Jackson Returns

    As I remember, Jackson’s performance in Stevie was perhaps the most acclaimed performance that year, but since it had been minimally released in an earlier year, it wasn’t Oscar eligible that year. I remember thinking that she would certainly have been nominated and might have won if eligible that year.

    Glenda Jackson Returns

    Ive seen her three times— most recently in Lear and Three Tall Women, and in 1981 in Rose, with Jessica Tandy. Jackson reigns. I got to sit in her limo and chat with her after Rose. At the stage door after Women, I told her I had seen her in Rose, and she looked at me and said I must have been a baby.

    Glenda Jackson Returns

    Housewife was shown on NBC in 72 or 73. Of course it was heavily edited, but some scenes cut from the theatrical release were added back. There was a version on you tube that took the vhs version and added the new nbc scenes to it. It was very grainy, but the new scenes really enhanced the story.

    Variety disagrees. Says Judy hits a high note box office-wise, given the small number of screens.
