  1. TB, I've reached the conclusion that they just need time to grieve. If, at this point, tin foil hat threads about computer based voting systems that do things that they were never designed to do, global conspiracies, and Hunter Biden laptops that they bought on ebay do it for them. I'm willing to stand back and let it happen.
  2. The one that sticks out in my mind is Jane Seymour's character, Solitaire, in "Live and Let Die". Bond deceives and seduces Solitaire. Losing her virginity means she also loses her ability to see the future, meaning that she is in danger if the crime boss finds out. Bond gets his rocks off and Solitaire is out of Bond's life by the next film, probably spending the rest of her life working at Woolworth's, until Walmart comes along. And, yes, I know it's just a movie.
  3. I would organize it out of existence. This was always Robert Osborne's project anyways, and he'll be gone four years come March 6. It gets tedious and repetitive trying to fill up an entire month's schedule full of films nominated for SOMETHING that are also (probably) in the Turner Library. For every "All Quiet on the Western Front" they show, there are half a dozen "Broadway Hostess" quality films. "Broadway Hostess" was nominated for a short lived category called Best Dance Direction and nothing else. But it was on 31 Days because TCM has to fill up that schedule somehow. It's to the po
  4. Sure, this is true. But the big unanswered question is - what is the reasoning that 1.5% of the population used who bothered to vote in this extremely important election and then made a 3rd party/write-in choice that could not win and was thus voting for the winner whoever that might be?
  5. Emily Murphy, head of the General Services Administration, said in a letter to President-elect Joe Biden on Monday that her office is ready to begin the formal presidential transition, after weeks of pressure from Democrats to allow the process to go ahead. The letter came after a four-member canvassing board in Michigan certified that state’s election results, effectively awarding Michigan’s 16 electoral votes to Biden, who defeated President Trump with a margin of more than 155,000 votes. Trump thanked Murphy in tweets Monday night and said he had re

  7. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) is self-isolating after testing positive for the coronavirus on Friday and then receiving an inconclusive result the next day, a spokesman for her campaign said. Loeffler has no symptoms and is taking precautions “until retesting is conclusive,” spokesman Stephen Lawson said in a Saturday night statement. The potential disruption to her campaign comes as Loeffler and her Republican colleague, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), try to fend off Democratic challengers in runoff elections that will determine the power balance in the Senate.
  8. This is an excellent resource if you are trying to prioritize purchases of Criterions. Each review grades video/audio/extra features. There is a comparison between the older and newer versions. Did you know that My Man Godfrey Blu/upgrade did NOT port the commentary track from the original DVD? That kind of information is in these reviews, organized in alphabetical order. https://criterionforum.org/Reviews
  9. I agree with that. I mainly remember DarkBlue for his endless posts denigrating women and posting stuff about MGTOW. Oh, but HIS daughter? SHE was different! Remind you of a certain POTUS?
  10. Even if the GOP took Michigan and Pennsylvania's electors - and that's a long shot - Trump still does not have enough electoral votes to win. So why is he doing this other than to try to discredit Biden as the legitimate president and burn down the country in the process? And doesn't the GOP think that the African American voters of Georgia might be watching as they try to disenfranchise the voters in Detroit and Philadelphia - heavily African American cities - by claiming that there is (unproved) rampant voter fraud in both places? This could cause turnout to be sufficient that both Georgia D
  11. The state and national Republican parties have asked the Board of State Canvassers to delay certification of the state's election results in a bid to investigate "anomalies and irregularities" alleged to have occurred in Michigan's Nov. 3 election. Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel asked the state to conduct a "full, transparent audit" before certification, noting other states like Georgia "have taken discretionary steps" in determining their results. The Board of State Canvassers is scheduled to meet Monday to
  12. Senator Grassley tested positive earlier this week. Senator Rick Scott of Florid a has also tested positive. The new Democratic senator from Arizona is seated as soon as Arizona certifies their election on November 30. This is because McSally was appointed to her seat rather than elected. Mitch has monkey wrench thrown into his plan to continue rubber stamping Trump judges unless EVERYBODY goes along with what he is doing. There is a rumor that Perdue has tested positive too, but I cannot get confirmation on this anywhere.
  13. There was an interesting piece in the Washington Post yesterday. It basically said that the LAST thing Georgia needs is swarms of people from the northeast and the west coast descending on Georgia and contacting voters there, telling them how they should vote. The writer said that if you are outside of Georgia, the best thing you can do is contribute money to the campaign effort and if you want to spend your time on the campaign, there is probably tons of clerical work that needs to be done. Let Georgians contact Georgians about these races. Stacey Abrams delivered before, she can do it again.
  14. In response to post "We the Sheeple of the United States" What you don't mention is that if Trump could have bothered to DO HIS JOB and be that shipping clerk, getting PPE and medical supplies to the states, and ENCOURAGED mask wearing and social distancing, the virus would have relented at least to the point that the summer could have been saved. There would be a lot less than 250K dead of this disease. Instead he made Covid sound like a Democratic plot, enlisting conservative media, and now the red states in particular are crawling with Covid. Yes, the states have lots of authority,
  15. November 19, 2020 at 2:50 p.m. EST "DETROIT — President Trump has invited the leaders of Michigan’s Republican-controlled state legislature to meet him in Washington on Friday, according to a person familiar with those plans, as the president and his allies continue an extraordinary campaign to overturn the results of an election he lost. Trump’s campaign has suffered defeats in courtrooms across the country in its efforts to allege irregularities with the ballot-counting process, and has failed to muster any evidence of the wid
  16. I remember when the film came out in 1989, and it just didn't get me enthused to go out and pay the price of a movie ticket. Nope, in 1989 nobody knew the British use of the word "shag" and it was when Austin Powers came out in 1997 that most Americans became aware of that term. The 1989 ads made it look like a throwback to "Where The Boys Are" and I guess that is why I wasn't that interested.
  17. "I did receive a call from President Trump, late Tuesday evening, after the meeting,” Monica Palmer, one of two Republican members of the four-member Wayne County canvassing board, told The Post. “He was checking in to make sure I was safe after hearing the threats and doxing that had occurred.” - Washington Post Ha. Ha. If she thinks Donald Trump is concerned about anybody but himself she has much to learn. And, yes, they were willing to certify Wayne county MINUS the city of Detroit.
  18. The Georgia Secretary of State is no RINO. He has no reason to make this up. I believe this happened. Ironically, the only attempted voter suppression/fraud that the Georgia recount has exposed has been by the GOP.
  19. Nip, I think that Biden is still under the impression that there is an inkling of honor and patriotism in the current president. He is mistaken. Instead Trump is wandering around the White House like a jilted lover in his PJs, gorging on pizza, binge watching Fox/OAN/Newsmax , and apparently planning a BIGLY fireworks show for us all in the form of starting a war with Iran while pulling out all of our soldiers in the Middle East. Have you noticed that with all of the death, closed businesses, and financial ruin of 2020 Trump looked like he just stepped off of a sailboat, not a care in t
  20. I absolutely loved everything about this film - poor James Mason. And it is so obscure. I think it was only on a burned DVD from Fox, Fox Movie Channel doesn't play it anymore, and it costs 4 bucks to rent on Amazon. I have no idea how you are watching this unless you ponied up four bucks to Amazon, but enjoy.
  21. I don't know how expensive it would be, and I'm not sure if these have been shown in the past, but there are some excellent British noirs out there - October Man, Upturned Glass, Dear Murderer, and Appointment with Crime for example.
  22. I know Fear was made by Monogram, and that Warner Brothers owns the Monogram/Allied Artists film library. Since WB and TCM fall under the AT&T umbrella, that could be why Fear was on Noir Alley.
  23. I think Eddie specifically mentioned the three lesser known stars in his "Summer Under The Stars" remark, because I would have been offended too if he mentioned Warren William in that way. In fact, if he wanted something good to say, I was wondering why he didn't mention William's performance. I didn't stick around for the outro remarks, so he might have mentioned him then.
  24. Wow, pertaining to "Fear", this was just about the least passionate wrap-around I've ever seen Eddie give on Noir Alley. He clearly was not enthused about "Fear". I loved his line in the intro - "Starring Peter Cookson, Anne Gwynne, and Francis Pierlot, all of whom I'm sure you'll be seeing on Summer Under the Stars next year...". I could be paraphrasing. When you see Eddie basically say "meh" at a "meh" film, it is probably not worth sticking around. It was Warren Williams' second to last film. He died in 1948 of cancer at only age 53.
