  1. Why can't TCM just use their own app and allow us to subscribe to it directly? Have been wanting to cut the cord for a while. Could just stream Hulu (and get TCM that way, too). Problem is they will want to charge me more for the internet....sigh....they get ya coming and going. There's no FIOS here to threaten them with, just satellite, both of which stink. At least here they do, because the phone company is so bad (can't get Verizon) that the lines send electrical surges and kill modems over and over again. Comcrap has no a la carte, no senior citizen rates - it does not surprise me that they don't care about the folks in nursing homes, etc. They are just money pigs.
  2. If for no other reason than to watch Ted get shot....
  3. Um, the main battle - Pickett's Charge - was fought on July 4. You know, the battle where the south lost half their army marching across an open field like sitting (or marching) ducks? Or maybe you don't... Watch the movie.
  4. Googled "why doesn't TCM show Gettysburg" and found this thread. Now the film is 26 years old, so if 25 years is the technical definition of classic, then it's "eligible". It's already 8-10 years older than the LOTR movies...which along with other newer movies, TCM has already shown anyway. No other channels show the Gettysburg movies, either. So TCM is denying its community of one of the better historical movies made in the last 50 years. Not to mention missing out on all the fun banter we used to have on the IM** forums back in the day, the history, the bloopers (finding moving trucks, statues amongst the greens), the varmints that served as mustaches and beards - and discussing the various cuts of the movie.... Now, there is a Director's Cut, which has added not only more minutes, but actual music with orchestral instruments (as opposed to only using electronic music in the original movie). The cuts did not terribly detract (although adding them did connect a few of the stories) as they did with Gods and Generals, but it's the version we watch most in our home now. Gods and Generals.....whoever edited that movie should have been fired. It was barely tolerable. When they released the Extended/Director's Cut version, the lights went on, the movie made sense, it didn't drag on...it wasn't just Stonewall sobbing into his hanky. It's not as good as Gettysburg, but ya know, if they had released it the way it should have been released, we might actually have that third Shaara movie after all. TCM, not showing these movies is really a shame.

  14. I don't come here often. But I just binged all 91 pages of posts in this thread! I applaud all of you who have seen so many of the older films - I have just made a huge list of everything I want to see. I wouldn't know where to find half of it, especially the German films from the 20s and 30s. Also, everything you find on Youtube and elsewhere seem to not have subtitles. But I *will find them! Thanks for all your efforts!!! Freddie
  15. Now that we've got him for a SUTS day.....Mastroianni deserves a month!
