If he starts out as a baby-sized old man, how come he doesn't end up a giant baby?

I shared one of these on Fb. This one was one of my favorites. I was such a Jerry Lewis fan when I was a kid and I loved watching these celebrity roasts that when this one aired, I was thrilled! Celebrity roast AND Jerry Lewis. Such gold.

 

Also, man, I miss Johnny Carson.

First of all, never knew this was a Michael Giacchino score.  Secondly, another movie badly in need of a one sheet. Thirdly, "the three of us, fighting crime together. Side, by side.......by side...." 

 

Still such a fun movie.

I've always been a fan of Night of the Comet. If we own the same Blu-Ray you'll know the commentary track is good; as is the Valley Girls at the End of the world doc.

'77 Keaton = GOAT

 

Goddess Tuesday.

 

Also, early Gere was so exciting. Such an erotic edge and wild energy.

 

 

 

I think the infamous rumor was only started because he was the personification of someone who could make every woman cum.

 

Also II: amazing soundtrack

Blues Brothers.

I've watched the final car chase a good half dozen times. I'm long overdue to give this a proper viewing.

Neat flick.

post #12414 of 12611
I struggled with it at times - it felt like a conscientious Xerox of other, better, films. Pattinson and Miller were exceptional from top to bottom, it was beautifully shot, the supporting cast were very good and the sense of remoteness, adventure and dread were all really well put across. It's a good film until 2/3 through let down principally by Hunnam once again struggling with an accent and feeling out of place. The script too often felt cliched and literal. Scenes like the one in the RGS felt so close but a slight miss.

Then the final third happens and it is magnificent. I don't think I've seen a film redeemed, no redeemed isn't at all fair, justified so completely by the way it is wrapped up at the end. It turned a good but derivative bit of craft into something borderline transcendant, nailing it's theme and artistic ambition. Even Hunnam excelled.

Cracking film. A very enthusiastic recommendation.

Started watching the original Ocean's Eleven. I've seen it before, but it's delightful.

I still have no idea what the fuck E-O-11 is, though.
post #12417 of 12611
5 episodes in.

I'm enjoying its subtle goofiness.

Update: only the 1st 6 episodes are being released now. The next 6 sometime in 2018.

I'm going to need some convincing. The trailers didn't do a thing for me, and it doesn't seem like The Tick at all.
post #12419 of 12611
I watched the fist episode today. Not sure off I'll watch any more. I couldn't get into the last live action Tick either. I know I need to get over the fact that' it's not the animated show, but it's hard to get past that.

About to watch the remake of Black Christmas. The original is something my wife and I have watched every Thanksgiving night for the last 8 years. I have never seen the remake. It's on Starz. I'm drinking. I'm expecting it to be horrible (my wife has already confirmed this), but I'm hoping with the booze I can get a chuckle or two out of it.
post #12421 of 12611

I'm going to start season three of Game of Thrones tonight.

post #12422 of 12611

Put this on, via Netflix last week.  At first it depressed me, but now, it provides me with a whole lotta hope for the future.  Anyways, on the third season.

It's better than it needs to be. The photography is superb and the cast is exceptionally attractive. Fun to have Andrea Martin show up too.

Was expecting a horror movie, and got a riff on Escape from New York instead. Pleasantly surprised. Grillo is fun, even if the politics are primary school level and we have yet anbother variation on the "righteous insurgent person of colour". Decent way to spend 90 minutes.

Funny as fuck with a storming performance by Gleeson and decent back from Cheadle, Davos, Strong et al. Didn't quite stick the landing, but worth it for the lead alone.

 

Also that first scene should be taught in film schools as how to introduce a character perfectly.

I feel like it pulls its punches at the end, but a very good film nonetheless. Between BreathlessInternal Affairs and this for best use of Gere's particular screen charisma.

Early Gere is amazing. In BREATHLESS, my cool ideal.

I re-watched (AGAIN) late last nite. Not sure I'd call ending a pulled punch.  Julian Kaye is rejected by the society he wrongly thought he had a place in.  He avoids the murder rap, but he's been broken and tamed.

Finally got around to Spider-Man: Homecoming this afternoon and really enjoyed it.  And tonight I think I may have finally convinced my wife to watch Goon, so I'm happy to watch that again.

Goon is a under appreciated sports film. I caught it on Netflix and was surprised by Sean William Scott's performance. He's really good.  You know they made a sequel and its out today. 

post #12444 of 12611
I didn't realize it came out today. But I did watch the trailer tonight, and that's how I convinced my wife to watch it. I think she thought it was a strAight up drama all this time.

I'm going to need to know how this looks. My favorite Malick film.

Goon was watched. My wife said "we need to make the sequel happen this weekend." So success!

 Looked AMAZING! It's up there with TAXI DRIVER and THE SHINING in perfect presentation. It'll knock your socks off!

 

Q: it had been a while since I watched. Not sure if audio track was messed up, or was dialogue in opening scenes intentionally silent under score and sound f/x? I'm thinking most glaringly when Gere's foreman in steel mill says something to him and there's a violent scuffle. The voice over kicks in and there's a muted quality underneath I don't recall.

 

Brooke Adams was especially great. So incredible back to back in this and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Then really only given a few more moments to shine.  Hollywood is weird.

It is, isn't it? I remember Brooke Adams being transfixing in anything I saw her in. Days of Heaven, Body Snatchers, The Dead Zone...and then in Moonlighting. But I also remember wondering why I never saw much of her! 

 

I must get this blur-ray.  You know, Days was on Netflix and it may still be there.  It not, check Hulu because it was also streaming there, too. I don't recall much dialogue in the opening scenes. Just the voice over. I'll need to re-watch it to confirm.

Matinee:

 

" Ah, little lad, you're staring at my fingers. Would you like me to tell you the little story of right-hand/left-hand? The story of good and evil? H-A-T-E! It was with this left hand that old brother Cain struck the blow that laid his brother low. L-O-V-E! You see these fingers, dear hearts? These fingers has veins that run straight to the soul of man. The right hand, friends, the hand of love. Now watch, and I'll show you the story of life. Those fingers, dear hearts, is always a-warring and a-tugging, one agin t'other. Now watch 'em! Old brother left hand, left hand he's a fighting, and it looks like love's a goner. But wait a minute! Hot dog, love's a winning! Yessirree! It's love that's won, and old left hand hate is down for the count!"

 

"What religion do you profess, preacher?"

"The religion the Almighty and me worked out betwixt us."
