    At least Shelley is usually put out of her misery at some point in the film.

    Yeah but in one case, her death in Poseidon Adventure managed to be sad. Probably my favorite role of her's.

    I don't remember if the TV version I saw showed the child's drowning though. I understand it was cut and wasn't shown on any station until years later when the FRANKSTEIN set came out on DVD.

    The line where Dr. Frankenstein says "I know what it feels like to BE God!" was also cut to not offend religious people. As far as the drowned kid, he didn't realize what he was doing. In the sequel, he's shown as only sympathetic too.

  3. I just had the strangest dream that Jame Gumb from sotl agreed to go to prison for another guy but after the specified time the guy chose to not switch places like they planned, so Jame broke out and chased the guy up a long staircase and hacked him to death with an axe. :huh: Is this fate giving me an idea for a spin off? :lol:

    Sanders warns 'we will lose this election' if Dems focus solely on Trump


    GOOD LUCK getting that message across here! :lol:


    (and before a certain member post that stupid faux cartoon again, just heard Bernie said that on NBC4!)

    A stunning moment of clarity from that geriatric twit but it's unlikely to be heard.

    Turin Horse is (was maybe?) on YouTube.


    David Fincher is acquiring more real estate at Netflix.

    The filmmaker and frequent Mindhunter director has closed a deal to co-write a pilot script for a prequel to the iconic 1974 film Chinatown, EW has confirmed. Fincher will collaborate on the script with Robert Towne, who penned the original film. Deadline first reported the news.

    The prequel series would reportedly focus on a young Jake Gittes, the hardboiled private eye played by Jack Nicholson in the film, as he investigates cases in Los Angeles. The project is in the very early stages of development; it has not yet been confirmed whether Fincher will direct the pilot. (Netflix did not respond to EW’s request for comment.)

    Chinatown, directed by Roman Polanski and produced by the late Robert Evans, follows Gittes as he looks into a complex case involving land deals and the L.A. water supply (it’s much more intriguing than it sounds), leading him down a sinister rabbit hole. As one might gather from his filmography, Fincher is a huge fan of the film; he even recorded a commentary track with Towne for its DVD release.

    Fincher first collaborated with Netflix on House of Cards before executive-producing Mindhunter and the animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots. He is also directing the film Mank, a biopic starring Gary Oldman as Citizen Kane co-writer Herman Mankiewicz, for the streaming service, based on a screenplay by Fincher’s late father.

     I liked the film. I'm not sure if I'd need to watch it over and over, but I'm glad I saw it. I also loved the music.

    The bluegrass music really helps set the rural 30s scene.

    This tune was also used in a Simpsons episode - "Hey, they didn't start chasing us until you turned on that getaway music!" :lol:

    Like speedy mentioned above, a lot of people now know Estelle Parsons (who turned 92 this year) as Roseanne's mother on the Roseanne sitcom and its follow-up The Connors, the latter of which she appeared in this year. Just think of that family tree - Roseanne's mother is Estelle Parsons, and Estelle's mother was played by Shelley Winters. Yikes!

    I thought Michael J. Pollard had died but he's still around, having turned 80 back in May. I've seen him in a lot of low-budget genre stuff, but nothing high profile.

    In one episode, Parsons even says the famous "I'm just a preacher's daughter" line from Bonnie and Clyde, though I don't remember the specific episode or context it was.

  9. I made a thread on it a while back. I liked the historical accuracy in regards to the couple (yes, I know the prison escape wasn't exactly how it went but they also weren't fun loving kids) the most, that it didn't try to whitewash the couple and portray Hamer as a tool like the 1967 film did (though it is still a much better film). I don't have a problem with either actor though so if you dislike them then yeah, you won't like it.



    You might think you like The Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda, but compared to series co-star Werner Herzog, you’re ready to play kickball with Baby Yoda’s tiny floating bassinet. “I’ve seen it on the set, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s heartbreakingly beautiful,” Herzog gushed to Variety about the show’s pivotal adorable creature at the Disney+ show’s fan premiere in L.A. last week. “I saw two technicians operating it remote. One was for the eyes and the mouth, and the other one was for other facial expressions. It’s a phenomenal technical achievement and beyond the technological achievement, it’s heartbreaking.

    When pressed to explain why Baby Yoda was “heartbreaking,” the director shook his head and gave the exact answer you’d give if you were asked to explain why Baby Yoda’s cuteness shook you to your core: “I don’t know.” However, Herzog did promise he’d try to answer once he watched Baby Yoda in action onscreen. “On the set, it looked absolutely convincing,” Herzog confirmed. “It made you cry when you saw it.”

    While I'm not anxious to get Roma, I am happy to see a Netflix film get a Criterion disc release, and I'll hold out hope that The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and The Irishman will get disc releases in the future.

    I hope they release Mindhunter with an Ed Kemper interview as the supplement. :lol:
