  1. Squeezed. I get it! Yes. Julie Christie is fab.

  3. We had a cat that could do that, when we shook the chow bag.
  4. Is that the one where Scotty says something like: 'Let's show them just what a Federation starship can do'?
  5. Ok, I know I saw 2001 in the Cinerama dome (also Blue Water, White Death, 1971--yikes!). In fact, it is the peak movie experience of my life, even though I was too young to fully appreciate it. But it has always been my understanding that the movie was shot in 70mm Panavision, not Cinerama. Evidence of this, of course, is that though there is distortion in some pans (symbolic of HAL's state of, um, 'mind'), you don't see the sutures between the three strips that exist in true Cinerama movies. Anybody have illumination?
  6. Man, I'm losing it. Can't remember which Star Trek episode it was in.
  7. That is my favorite part of the movie. That and Sal Mineo on top of the ferris wheel.
  8. Wow! Somebody besides me actually remembers! Now I do not feel alone.
  9. Well, Groucho at least doesn't know enough not to stick a gun in his mouth. But Dargo does have him as a role model.
  10. Carol was on April 3, at 6:45 pm Pacific. Maybe you were looking for it at a different time.
  11. Does that mean also that not promoting corgis is just a way of being anti-corgi?
  12. I'm still waiting for the backlash. The suspense is killing me. I hope it lasts.
  13. Bunches of people twittering hardly seems worthy of the ominous consequences portended by 32 point boldface type (yawn.) What a letdown. I thought at least a Congressional investigation, with the Gang of Four hauled up before glowering Representatives. By the way, how huge? Like, a dozen? Again, what's so extreme about saying racism, sexism, and bigotry is bad? I think you are exhibiting your extremism.
  14. What? Are huge crowds going to storm the TCM offices to overturn their programming? And what's good about being moderate about racism, sexism, and bigotry?
  15. For me, bad direction isn't more apparent, because I don't waste my time watching the movie. What discerning good direction comes down to is art, what makes a good picture. Directing well is the same as making a good picture, at 32 frames per second. You can tell when a director is aware of how to compose a picture, how it's put together, what lines are formed by the objects, how they are balanced (or imbalanced), how foreground, middleground and background relate to each other, how movement ties the whole shot together, how light and sound are used. For openers, here's this: Eve
  16. Almost blasphemy, her wearing that.
  17. I can't say, I've never been able to watch more than ten minutes or so of it.
