  1. Thanks! And yes, absolutely it can be a social event via other media. I was confining my discussion to where I know TCM is actively involved in the live discussions. I’m sure Facebook is probably the same but I don’t use that much. Regardless, believe there has already been some change over the years, not all of it bad. And a quick search of the forum shows that this is a perennial topic and I’m sure we’ll be lamenting the commercials for the “All New TCM Augmented Reality Glasses” in a few years
  2. I miss the old AMC. If nothing else, healthy competition is a good thing. Honestly, I believe the old TCM has already gone. The only constant (especially in media) is change. I don’t however feel sad about the change, I actually like it. the TCM app is BRILLIANT and it has already transformed the way I approach watching movies. If I see something on the schedule that I really really want to see, I don’t have to plan around it or even set a DVR. I know I have a week or so to see it via the app. I can also watch the host intros by themselves which I have found is a surprisingly nice featur
  3. Night Train to Munich has some Bond-ish elements. Not many gadgets but some good secret agent moments.
  4. It is? Well then mark me in the unpopular category because Williams is brilliant. And to prove that I’m a complete boor, I’ll throw out another theme song that I believe fit the movie perfectly, East Bound and Down is a great driving song by Jerry Reed and worked great for Smokey and the Bandit.
  5. Took a lot of guts to post that online, especially in an age when trolling is a semi-professional sport. Keep doing you, Eric.
  6. I love watching the Overton Window move back and forth over time. Art and politics are great social lenses.
  7. Sent you a message with my email. You go ahead and submit the chapter. Also, Huzzah we’re official!
  8. Sadly, I’m out of town for this one. Eat some popcorn for me.
  9. I think that is a large part of it. Another factor, in my opinion, is the increasing amount of remakes we see. I don’t mind a good remake/reboot and I think there is plenty of room to better an action movie with newer effects, but being inundated with the same formulaic plot can get tiresome. I fell into this group with A Star Is Born. Three remakes was just too many for me. I admire the performances of the actors but, as much as I profess to support recycling, I couldn’t stomach the underlying boilerplate. And on that note, I offer you all some good-humored snark:
  10. TCM showed How The West Was Won last month in its original Cinerama widescreen format and I remember seeing a lot of tweets complaining about it. I imagine it’s tough to make everyone happy.
  11. Melanie, As of right now, we need two more Backlot members to start our chapter. Would you like to be added to our Email chain? [edit] your email address says it isn’t valid
  12. I believe a large segment of 20 somethings do not enjoy classic film simply because they have not been exposed to them. But this is really no different than the generations before the Millenials. Raise your hand if you remember the dark days before “the interwebs” when the only people who volutarily watched black and white movies were you and your grandparents. Maybe some friend would watch It’s a Wonderful Life at Christmas. In this respect, the internet and social media have actually benefited the classics. More people have access to these films now and are discovering their magic. I’m well
  13. Looks like this thread has been going for a while without much luck. Let’s get it locked down. Reading the info in the TCM Backlot area shows that we need: 5 registered Backlot members (so myself and 4 others) to get a full chapter started. A “home” theater. If you are interested in making this happen, message me your email address and I’ll start a list. We have 3 Theaters in the Cincy area that regularly show Fathom Events movies so a home theater won’t be a problem.
